Mary Darling Editor There’s a lot of exciting and good news happening at the Harrison County Conservation Board (HCCB). According to Director Scott Nelson, an unexpected donation came out of the blue to HCCB.

“Jimmy King Mondamin] called us up and asked if we had ever thought about building another cabin,” Nelson said. Nelson said they went to work and prepared a proposal for King in about a week. Willow Lake presently includes three camping cabins and two house-

keeping cabins. The donation makes it possible to add an additional housekeeping cabin. “I had always thought that if we built another cabin, we should do a modular one,” Nelson said. “I went to Design Homes in Missouri Valley and they came up with a concept. We added the septic, electricity, water

and amenities, did the math, and came up with a proposal for Mr. King.” Pat Perry, the board president at the time, and Nelson, met with King and presented their proposal and King approved and pledged to donate the SEE HCCB Page 2

L0-MA BOARD: Credits increased HCCB: Exciting projects on tap FROM PAGE 1 Woodbine; 12, College Algebra at Lo-Ma; 33, computer courses at Lo-Ma; 12, Heath Science courses at Missouri Valley; and 72 are taking online courses. Gochenour and Secondary Special Education Instructor, Megan Christiansen, asked the board to consider adding a life skills curriculum to the special needs classes. “We are doing well with the learning, working and hiring part, but struggling with the living part once they graduate,” Gochenour said. “Once they graduate, how do they live on their own? We have some real needs in that area.” Gochenour said they are looking for ideas and suggestions to bring this part of the curriculum into the students’ life. “There’s a great necessity into looking into this type of transition program for our kids,” Christiansen said. Board members asked if there were any state requirements in this area. “If the living section of the Individual Education Plan is a concern of the parents, then we are legally bound to help,” Gochenour said. They will gather more information and report back to the board. Gochenour asked the board to consider changing the 2013 date for graduation ceremonies due to her son graduating that same

day from Missouri Valley High School. The board was favorable on changing the date and proposed holding graduation on May 19 that year, but would like input from the senior families that would be impacted before a final decision is made. The board did approve the 2012-2013 school calendar minus the date for graduation. The Board also approved the Early Start Waiver request to be sent into the state, and set Aug. 15 as the first day of classes. Superintendent Jim Hammrich requested the board approve increasing the School Base Interventionist Contract from three to four days per week starting next year. The Interventionist works with the at-risk students as well as working on improving attendance and other issues. “Last semester, she wrote attendance contracts for seven students,” Gochenour said. “A lot of our issues are because students aren’t coming to school.” According to Board Member Todd Cohrs, the district needs to figure out how to get parents more involved in their child’s education and for the parents’ to be more responsible. The board approved adding one day to the Interventionist contract in 2012-2013, at a cost of $5,900 for the year. A contract renewal with Rick’s Computers for part-

time tech support was FROM PAGE 1 approved as well as a contract for Kendra Collins for $127,000 cost. “This is something that junior high girls track coach. wouldn’t happen to most Family, Career and people in my position,” Community Leaders of Nelson said. “Mr. King has America (FCCLA) memrealized a dream of ours.” bers, Haley Whisney and The new cabin, to be Molly Zephier, gave their named the King Cabin, will presentation on drinking be north of the Scotch Pine and driving to the board Cabin.

done,” Nelson said. “We have built a conservation classroom you can tour and each guest will receive a free tree. We have 14 to 15 varieties of shrubs and trees we give away that you can plant in your yard.” Coming up Saturday, May 19, will be the Grand Opening of the Harrison County Welcome Center Loess Hills and Lincoln Highway Interpretive Project. The project just completed includes the halfmile of concrete walkway that is ADA accessible with interpretive lighted bollards along the trail. “These are artistic designs meant to stir your imagination, make you think and plant a seed,” Nelson said. There is another halfmile gravel and stair step trail with 181 limestone steps. It leads up to the pinnacle where you can sit on the retaining wall and look over the valley. Inside the main building, the staff has completed a face-lift on the Iowa Products Store. You will also find the Internet Café and the Loess Hills Interpretive Panel. A new and exciting project, an idea by Connie Betts, will put the museum on the cusp of technology. Betts wrote two grant requests. One, for a Resource Enhancement And Protection (REAP) grant, and another to the Harrison County Community Foundation. They were both approved and will allow her project idea to move forward. They are designing a smart trail at Willow Lake, Schaben Park and Old Town Conservation Area with the same technology and usage to be available at the Harrison County Welcome Center for interpretation of the on-site

facilities. “There will be Quick Reader (QR) signs along the trail and if you have a smart phone you can click on it and get information on your phone,” Nelson said. “We can include photos, print material, music, sounds and recorded voice.” The grant from HCCF allowed HCCB to purchase two Ipod Touch devices for two locations that will be able to be checked out and used if visitors don’t have their own smart phone. “The QR signs will interpret different areas along the road demonstration area to start with,” Nelson said. “We are the first Conservation Agency in the State of Iowa to do this.” Adding to the good news at HCCB is a $24,000 Fish Habitat Grant that will allow for more shoreline armoring at Willow Lake to protect the shoreline from erosion and protect the habitat. “We scored number one on that one,” Nelson said. “We have applied for it a number of times and completed other projects through the grants. The grant comes from stamp funds every angler has to purchase, so these are fishermen funds being put back into improving the lakes.” Nelson said they hoped to begin work on this project this spring. Nelson couldn’t say enough good things about his staff at the HCCB. “We lost some great people that retired, but have gained some new great ones,” he said. “The projects fall on the director’s shoulders, but it’s a team effort and we work as a family.” “There’s not a day that goes by I don’t look forward to going to work,” he said. “It’s exciting times.”

INVESTIGATION: Continuing

to the Department of Criminal Investigation Lab (DCI) for analysis the day following the accident. Collier had been charged with “driving on the wrong side of a two-way highway,” and “unlawful passing of a school bus.”

“Further charges are pending the results of the sample,” Sears reported. Funeral services for McGrew were held Feb. 10 at Logan-Magnolia Community School. McGrew had been employed in the food service at the school since 2008. A breast-cancer survivor, McGrew had been a participant in the Susan G. Koman “Race for the Cure,” for the past three years as a member of the

Harrison County Cure Crusaders Team and was active in many other organizations in the community including helping with one of the First LEGO 4-H Teams and a member of the Parent Music Association at Logan-Magnolia High School. According to Sears, it could take up to 30 days for the DCI to determine the results of the urine sample.

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.

Actions do speak louder than words Even though I’m quite capable of being mushy when I’m writing, voicing it isn’t one of my strong suits. I do, although, show my true feelings, commitment and belief in those I love by living out those three cherished words: “I love you.” I’ve never been one to end conversations with the automatic “I love you,” as I feel this sentiment isn’t meant to be said as an afterthought. I save them for just the right moment, so the person knows I’m sincere. More times than not, I keep the sentimentals to myself and concentrate on what I can do to make their lives easier, because, true love is about sacrifice, compromise and most times, putting their needs before my own. Maybe I fell short on being sappy since I was raised in a home that, even though we had plenty of love going around, saying it didn’t happen very often. I knew my parents loved me because, even though I was a spoiled kid, rebellious teenager and indecisive young adult, they continued to show their love for me by being nurturing, compassionate and supportive. Fortunately, the life cycle gave me the chance to return that love by taking care of them when they needed the nurturing. I often wonder if my daughters, as they’ve become adults, now understand that my love comes to them in so many different ways, and even though the words, “I love you,” may not be said every time we part, my life is dedicated to their well-being and happiness. Sometimes love will make decisions for you in life, even when you’re not looking for a decision to be made. When I realized dad’s dementia was going to keep him from living in his own home, my love for him was the only emotion I could pull from to make the decision to move him into a nursing home. I love him too much to live with the guilt if something would have happened because I was being too selfish trying to be his caregiver. I loved my job at The Examiner, and leaving the 30year career wasn’t a decision I was looking to make. When my boyfriend asked for my help with his companies my heart skipped a beat or two, and then I jumped into the offer, head over heels in love with the fact I can make a difference in the life of the person I love and want to share my life with. Life has taught me true love isn’t just sitting across the room from each other being googly-eyed but looking together toward the future in the same direction. Besides, I’m going to get my own pickup truck and toolbox. What more can a girl ask for on Valentine’s Day?

Pro-Confederacy agitation in the North David Connon of Earlham, works at Living History Farms as an interpreter. He also is a substitute teacher. Connon has been studying Southern sympathies in Iowa during the Civil War to learn their extent. Grinnell, for example, was strongly prohibitionist, but a Pro-Southern riot disrupted a school a year before the battle at Fort Sumter. Southern sympathizers called Copper-heads also were active in pro-Union Poweshiek County. In mid-1864, 50 residents vowed to resist the draft. When three were drafted, local bushwhackers murdered two deputy federal marshals. Though Iowa was strongly pro-Union and sent more than 75,000 residents to fight for the North, at least 25 went to war for the Confederacy. A large, dissenting group of Democrats supported the war, but favored retaining slavery. A minority opposed the war. The 1915 Harrison County History maintained that never in its history had a Copperhead newspaper published in Harrison County. Har-

rison County was a proud supporter of the Northern cause and people who favored the South were rare. An earlier history told a slightly different story. Pro-Union and Confederate families formed “clubs” that met to discuss war news. They reacted to successes and reverses much as modern fans of football teams do today. The most dedicated people identified with the competing armies, perhaps because family members were fighting on one or the other side. As a result, they often confronted people expressing different opinions with news of Confederate or Union victories. Defeats for their side sent them into a lachrymose mood until better news raised their spirits. In Harrison County, that was apparently as far as it went. No record of violence or even extremely hostile feelings remains in our county. Life continued with the usual worry of loved ones in harm’s way. Another organization was more sinister, but it had little effect on Har-

rison County. A secret organization called the Knights of the Golden Circle, formed in 1854 with the goal of annexing a “golden circle” of nations from Mexico and Central America to the Caribbean. As the war began, the Knights directed their attention to the war and how they could harm the Union effort. Representatives enlisted northern supporters and capitalized on Copperhead’s fears of a central government tyranny after Lincoln temporarily suspended the writ of habeas corpus and authorized the arrest of seditious people. The Knights of the Golden Circle helped incite antidraft riots. They also outfitted a schooner in San Francisco Bay, which they

planned to use for raids on west coastal commercial areas. More importantly, the ship’s owners planned to steal gold shipments bound for the eastern United States. Luckily, the ship was seized on the first night of its mission. The Knights also organized peace meetings, and some suggested they could end the war by fermenting a resolution in the Old Northwest. Such actions remained mostly talk because popular support was limited. In spite of some pro-Confederacy views, residents of Harrison County likely knew of the drama, but as a writer for the 1915 county history noted, they were too smart to fall for the Knights of the Golden Circle blandishments.

News from the Extension Service

Odds and ends and a Happy Birthday! Congratulations…We have successfully survived the meteorologically coldest period of the year. The third week of January is, on average, the nadir for temperatures in western Iowa. That third week of January (like most of the rest of the winter) was hardly cold and last weekend’s snowfall and chill pales in comparison with the big snowfalls of most years. But at least we did get snow, and that should help address the moisture deficit a bit. Of course, as I prepare this, the forecast low for tonight is 10F below zero, but don’t shoot me if I say I am glad we are getting some cold to help vernalize (biologically prepare for spring) some of our perennial plants Aside from winter storms, February in the Extension office means pesticide applicator season is here. Farmers who have become certified to be able to legally purchase and apply restricted use pesti-

cides (RUPs) can recertify by attending training that is offered each year. If they attend for the three years of their certification, they need not retest to become recertified. Our first session in Harrison County was on Feb. 9, but this year for the second offering we are trying something different. Harrison County Extension has partnered with the Iowa Corn Growers to offer this year’s training at the Corn Fair the morning of Feb. 20 at the Rand Center, Missouri Valley. Because lunch is being provided by the Corn Growers, we ask you to pre-register. You can do that by calling the Extension Office at (712) 644-2105 until noon on Friday, Feb. 17. We will share our list with the planners with the Corn Growers. The program includes ISU Climatologist, Elwynn Taylor, ISU Plant Pathologist, Alison Robertson, and ISU Field Agronomist, Joel DeJong and is free –

except there is a $20 re-certification fee for people attending that receive the pesticide training. On an unrelated but important note to us in Harrison County, (Monty Python would have said, “And now for something completing different!”), on Sept. 30, 1912, incorporation papers for the Harrison County Agricultural Extension Association were filed in the Recorder’s Office in Logan. Although Extension in Harrison County has been molded to fit changing times during the last century, we stand as one of the early counties in

Iowa that responded to a public need for practical information fueled by research and demonstrations from our Local Grant Institution, Iowa State University, Ames. We will have some activities throughout the coming year to celebrate our share in our centennial celebration. Happy Birthday to all of us, and thank you to the citizens of Harrison County from 1912 to 2012.

less mature economies. Diversification — The world’s financial markets are somewhat dependent on one another, but that doesn’t mean they constantly move in unison. In any given year, the U.S. markets may be down, but international markets might be doing better. Consequently, if during that year, you had invested only in U.S. companies, your portfolio may have taken a hit. It’s important to diversify your portfolio by investing in many different vehicles, but you can also boost your diversification through geography. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification can’t guarantee a profit or protect against loss.) While international investing can be beneficial, it does not come without risks. For one thing, when you invest overseas, you may encounter political instability, which could threaten the financial markets of a country or region. Conversely, financial problems, such as the European debt crisis, can result in loss of confidence in individual governments. Also, you might experience currency risk, which means that changes in the value of the U.S. dollar relative to foreign currencies could harm the value of your

Logan-Magnolia first and second grade girls have spent the last four weeks working on the fundamentals of basketball thanks to volunteers Shad Hornbeck and Jamie Evans. The 60 girls involved in grades three to eight, took part in the Underwood Basketball League. The young ladies had an opportunity to show off their skills Jan. 20 at halftime of the varsity girls game. These girls were given the opportunity to better themselves on the basketball court thanks to their commitment along with the support of their parents. Pictured in front from the left, are, Marley Clark, Ella Spitler, Samantha Yoder, Amelia Evans, Courtney Sporrer, Kali Collins, Alliyah Thompson and Abby Leonard; in back, Coach Jamie Evans, Lillian Lefeber, Madyson Roberts, Macanna Guritz, Greylan Hornbeck, Emma Perkins, Jasmine Lease, Mya Moss, Alyx Wohlers, Claire Hennessy, Sinsear Zephier and Coach Shad Hornbeck.

I appreciate all the hours you have put into helping these young ladies become better basketball players. I would also like to thank the parents for hauling their kids around and paying the money to play in the league along with some of the tournaments your child has been involved in.

Explore the World of International Investments You’re probably accustomed to measuring the progress of your investments, and the overall condition of the investment world, by checking on indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. And since these types of benchmarks focus almost exclusively on American companies, you might get the idea that the best investments are located right here in the United States. But that impression would be false — because there are, literally, a world of investment opportunities beyond the U.S. borders. In fact, as of the end of 2010, U.S. stock markets constituted less than a third of the total global stock market value, according to the World Bank. And you can probably just look around at the products you use in your daily life to identify many successful foreign companies. Why invest a portion of your portfolio internationally? Here are a couple of reasons to consider: Growth potential — The United States is a mature, highly developed economy. That doesn’t mean, of course, that we have no “upside” here. However, you can also find considerable growth potential in emerging markets — countries such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico that are characterized by younger,

investments. And in any given year, any market, foreign or domestic, may be down. Ultimately, you should probably limit your exposure to international investments to no more than 20% to 25% of your overall portfolio, with the exact amount, if any, depending on your situation — your goals, risk tolerance, time horizon, financial situation and other factors. You may also want add an international flavor to your portfolio by investing in quality U.S. companies that do a considerable amount of business abroad. In any case, given the more complex nature of international investing, you’ll want to consult with a financial professional before writing a check. Still, consider the international investment world. With a little exploring, you may discover some good possibilities out there. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

As Producers begin considering shares for the 2012 DCP contracts, they are reminded that: •All producers planting on DCP bases acres must be identified on the DCP/ACRE enrollment contact and receive a proportionate share of DCP/ ACRE payment for the farm. •Changes in ownership, producers, or the crop share arrangement on the farm made after enrolling in DCP/ACRE must be reported to the Harrison County office. Producers should note that changes to their 2012 DCP/ACRE enrollment contacts cannot be made after Sept. 30, 2012. Producers also may elect the ACRE option. This election, along with enrolling the farm for 2012, can be made anytime before June 1. If a farm has an ACRE election from a prior year, the farm remains in the ACRE.

DENNIS STORM Dennis W. “Stormy” Storm, 64, passed away at his home in Pisgah, on Feb. 8. Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m., Feb. 13 at the Community of Christ Church, Pisgah, with burial to be at Soldier Valley Cemetery, Pisgah, at a later date. Dennis Wayne Storm was born Feb. 23, 1947, to Vern “Stormy” and Ila Mae (Lathrop) Storm at Bertha Hester’s in Pisgah. Dennis went to grade school in Pisgah and attended High School at West Harrison Community School, Mondamin. Dennis was injured in a diving accident in 1964 at the age of 17. Never letting his injury get in the way, he graduated from high school a year later in 1965. Dennis went on to attend college for a time at Dana College, then at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where he studied history. He and his wife of 23 years, Kathy (Carson) Storm, had known each other all of their lives when they married on Jan. 7, 1989. Dennis loved his hometown and was very involved in his community. He served as the mayor of Pisgah for two terms, from 1984 to 1989, and from 1991 to 1992, and as a member of the City Council in 1990 and from 1994-1996, during which time he worked to get new fire trucks for the community, replace an aging bridge in town, and to secure funding for the construction of the Loess Hills Visitor’s Center. Not only was Dennis the announcer at many town baseball games and tournaments, but he also was known to sing the National Anthem from time to time, after which he would then “help” umpires make their calls. It wasn’t unusual for Dennis to drive his wheelchair in front of speeding vehicles downtown, either, all in an effort to make sure that Pisgah’s streets were safe. When the town bank closed, Dennis was very

Sports

Panthers send six to State The Logan-Magnolia Panther’s took second place at the District Wrestling Meet Feb. 11 and qualified six team members to the Iowa State Individual Meet Feb. 15-18 in Des Moines. “Getting six through to the State Tournament out of our eight wrestlers is very impressive,” said Head Coach Kent Kersten. “There have only been three years in school history where we have qualified more.” With the addition of those six state qualifiers, Lo-Ma’s school record over the history of the sport in the School District, now stands at sending 201 wrestlers to compete at the State Meet. Lo-Ma wrestlers on their way to the State Tournament are: Ethan Reynek, first place (113), Quinton Doiel, first place (120);

Ridge Meeker, second place (126), Eric Brosnahan, first place (132), Chris Bridgeford, first place (195); Logan Melby, first place (220). “I thought everyone did a great job,” Kersten said. “There were a lot of tough matches and I am proud of the way our guys wrestled today. They showed a lot of heart.” Underwood took first at the tournament with 129 points, followed by Lo-Ma with 105.5 points. Following Lo-Ma were, Tri-Center, 71 points; St. Albert, 46; West Monona, Onawa, 30; Westwood Sloan, 30; Woodbine, 30; Riverside, 28; Griswold, 27; ElkHorn-KimballtonExira, 25.5; East Mills, 22; Treynor, 16; M.V.A.O., 14; AHST, 10. Both Underwood and Lo-Ma qualified six wrestlers to State. According to Kersten,

the record for the day was 12 wins and six losses. The team earned eight pins and gave up three pins. This is Quinton Doiel’s third trip to the State Tournament and second for Ethan Reynek, Ridge Meeker and Chris Bridgeford. It will be the first trip for Eric Brosnahan and Logan Melby. Results include: Ethan Reynek (113): Decisioned Riley Kline, Underwood, 7-5 and Evan Hansen, EHK, 9-7. Quinton Doiel (120): Pinned, Austin Dollen, Griswold; lost a major decision to Andrew Foutch, Underwood; pinned Austin Mead, Westwood.

The Logan-Magnolia Panther wrestling team came close, but not quite close enough, Feb. 6 at Tri-Center, to continue the team’s 10-year streak of Sectional champio n s h i p s . Tr i - C e n t e r topped the Panthers with 211 points, but Lo-Ma wasn’t far behind with 206.5. “Our streak of Sectional championships finally came to an end,” said Head Coach Kent Kersten. “Overall, I felt like our guys gave a good effort, they just couldn’t put enough points on the board.” The team won 20 of their 33 matches earning 14 pins and gave up only four pins. All team members placed with five earning first place, two second, one third, two fourth, two fifth and two sixth. “Chris Bridgeford and Logan Melby scored the most points with 24 each,” Kersten said.

“Quinton Doiel was close behind with 23.5. Ethan Reynek and Eric Brosnahan scored 22 each.” First place wins went to Reynek (113 pounds), Doiel (120), Eric Brosnahan (132), Bridgeford (195) and Logan Melby (220).

Panthers in last Panther boys finish regular season game Kendra Collins For The Observer The Lady Panther’s last regular season game took place Feb. 6 against the Boyer Valley Bulldogs. Coach Derek Sonderland said he was pleased with the girls’ effort after the first quarter. The first quarter was much too difficult to recover from. The Bulldogs came out hot and blanked the Panthers 14-0. However, the Panthers did not shut down. They came back fighting in the second quarter and

outscored Boyer Valley by eight points. The Panthers went into halftime down 2619. Both teams came out of the locker room not able to get much going in the third quarter. Going into the fourth quarter, the Panthers were down 34-25. The Panthers continued to chip at the Bulldog’s lead in the fourth quarter, but could not dig themselves out of the hole they put themselves in during the first quarter. The final score ended at 48-44. Ashley Bradshaw led the Panthers with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Maysen Jones

had 10 points and six rebounds; CheyAnne Royer, logged eight points and four rebounds; Emily Dickinson, six points and two rebounds; Joana Healey, two points and three rebounds; Cheyenne Jensen, two points and a pair of rebounds; Erin Peschel grabbed a rebound and Nohemy Orozco, saw playing time in one quarter. The Panthers matched up against Missouri Valley in its first round District game. Stats were not available at the time of publication for this game and will be in next week.

regular season play Head to District Play Feb. 16 Trent Buckner For The Observer The Logan-Magnolia Boys’ Basketball Team finished its regular season traveling to Missouri Valley and hosted East Mills in their last two games, before the district tournament. On Feb. 6, the Panthers headed down U.S. Highway 30, for a match-up with the Big Red of Missouri Valley. Lo-Ma came out of the gates rather slow, but knocked down some big shots at the end of the first quarter to take a 159 lead. In the second quarter, the Panthers again played sluggish and the Big Red were able to capitalize as they outscored Lo-Ma, 13-7, to tie the score at half at 22. Following the break, Lo-Ma came out with a renewed sense of purpose at both ends of the floor, as they outscored Missouri Valley 10-6 in the third quarter and 1811 in the fourth quarter. Final was a Lo-Ma, 5039, victory over Missouri Valley.

“You could definitely tell this was our first game in almost a week,” said Coach Kevin Osborn, following the game. “We had to brush the cob webs off a little bit initially and we struggled shooting, but I felt our effort was there for most of the game tonight. Considering we had a home girls game, wrestling sectionals and our game was away, this was a tough environment to play in and I felt our crowd was great!” Cole Davis led a very balanced Panther attack as he finished the game with 11 points. Others who scored in the game were, Brennan Azinger, 10 points, Nate Fender, e i g h t ; Z a c h P o w l e y, eight; Paul Hutson, seven and Gannon Cunard, six. On Feb. 10, Lo-Ma looked to be in for a battle as the 17-3 Wolverines of East Mills came to town. In the first quarter, the two teams battled back and forth as the Panthers were able to take a 13-12 lead at the end of the period. After the quarter break, Lo-Ma was able to

get on a hot streak as they outscored East Mills 20-6 during those eight minutes. The Panthers were ahead at the half, 33-18. In the second half, LoMa was able to extend their lead by one, heading into the fourth quarter as they outscored East Mills, 16-15, in the third period of play. Ahead by 16, the Panthers were able to push their lead to as much as 20, before the Wolverines cut into their deficit with Lo-Ma’s bench in the game. In the end, the Panthers took the game by a final score of 65-52. Zack Powley had a big night for Lo-Ma, as he put 18 points on the scoreboard. Others chipping in for the victory were Hutson with 13; Fender, 11; Davis, nine; Cunard, six; Azinger, three; Dom Snyder, three and Alex Cohrs, two. The Panthers finished the regular season with a record of 11-9. Lo-Ma now opens District play as they host Woodbine for a first round matchup at 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 16.

The Woodbury Central wrestling team, accomplished a 44-18 win over the LoganMagnolia Panther wrestling team Feb. 7, to squash Lo-Ma’s hopes of returning to the State Dual Wrestling Tournament. “There were several good matches that I felt our guys fought hard for a win,” said Head Coach Kent Kersten. “We might have been able to turn a couple of those matches around but wouldn’t have affected the outcome of the dual.” Chris Bridgeford (195 pounds) pinned his

opponent, Zach Klingensmith in only 57 seconds, Brady Charbonneau (145) won a 12-8 decision over Schuyler Rilling, and Logan Melby (220) won a 302 decision in overtime over Levi Paulsen.

Bowling with Mosaic On Jan. 29, members of the Logan-Magnolia and Missouri Valley FCCLA High School Chapters, met with several clients from the Mosaic Homes in Logan for an evening of bowling at the

Missouri Valley Tamarack Bowling Alley. Mosaic clients, along with the adult workers, FCCLA members and their advisors, had a lot of fun interacting. Following the bowling event, the

Mosaic clients enjoyed a meal at Gurney’s. Lo-Ma FCCLA members also are making curtains for one of the clients and are planning a dance for the clients later this spring.

In December, the LoMa Junior High and Senior High Family, Career and Community Leaders (FCCLA) Chapter was informed that they had been approved for a $4,000 grant to encourage students to eat healthy and exercise at least 60 minutes per day. Three junior high students and advisor, Deneen Healey, attended

the Super Power Summit at the University of N o rt h e r n I o w a a n d learned about the grant. Students conducted surveys and helped collect information to aid in writing the grant. $500 will be spent on purchasing items to be given to students who participate in the weekly health and nutrition Trivia Challenge. The remaining $3,500, will

go towards the purchase of a healthy vending machine that will contain healthy foods such as cheese sticks, V8 Fusion, flavored milk, yogurt, baked chips, etc. The machine costs approximately $6,500. FCCLA members and their advisor are working on securing additional funding to help purchase the machine by May.

Lauren Roden, Business Manager, discussion potentially refinancing the current

bonds and discussed advantages and disadvantages of various repayment structures. It was the consensus of the board to go forward with the refinancing. Lauren Roden also discussed the need for a special election to be held. The taxpayers must vote on the renewing the current revenue purpose statement. There would be no financial impact to the voters with its passage. If passed, this would allow the school to continue to use one cent dollars as it currently is – for infrastructure and technology needs as well as debt service. If not passed, one cent dollars would only be available for use only for debt service and the school could no longer use one cent dollars for infrastructure or technology. She reported this would put a financial strain on the general fund and could potentially cause tax rates to increase in the general fund. It was the consensus of the board to hold a special election in the fall. The next regularly scheduled meeting is March 14, 2012. 8. Adjournment.

Iowa Pork Regional Conferences offer wealth of information Iowa pork producers are invited to learn more about pig health and growth numbers and get updates on ventilation management and disease research projects at the 2012 Iowa Pork Regional Conferences March 6-9. The Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC), Iowa Pork Producers Asso-ciation (IPPA) and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach co-

sponsor this annual series at four sites around the state. IPIC Extension Program Specialist Colin Johnson said the conference will offer information for owners, operators and others in the industry. “Veterinarians, swine industry stakeholders, production employees and contract growers all will find useful informa-

tion they can use at the conference,” he said. Eldon McAfee, attorney for Beving, Swanson & Forrest P.C., will speak on two topics: “Regulatory, Environmental and Nuisance Case Update” and “Protecting Yourself Through Contracts and Liens.” Speakers Eric Burrough and Rodger Main of the ISU Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

will talk about the reemergence of swine dysentery and ISU Extension Swine Program Specialists will present information on the importance of detailed and accurate records through the production chain. All sessions run from 1 to 4:30 p.m. There is no cost for those registered at least two business days prior to each location date. Walk-in registra-

tion is $5 per person, payable at the door. Program dates and locations include: Tuesday, March 6, Carroll County Extension Office, 1205 West U.S. Highway 30, Suite G. Wednesday, March 7, Sheldon, at Northwest Iowa Community College, 603 West Park Street, Building A, Room 119.

Thursday, March 8, Nashua, at Borlaug Learning Center, 3327 290th Street.

Citizens questions and comments: none Chamber update: none Budget work session: The council reviewed the budget numbers. The clerk told the council that the debt service levy has a 2.8% decrease with the payoff of the GO Water Bond this spring. There will be an increase in the Employee Benefits levy because there had been a surplus in that account and we had taxed less the last two years to reduce down that surplus. Overall there should be about a 2% decrease in the property tax rate. The Clerk reported she is working on the water and sewer estimations for the year to see if the rates will change. The council will make a decision on rates as we get closer to the end of the fiscal year.
