Hail damage to city property and repairs top council agenda Mary Darling Editor A discussion of damages to city property from the hailstorm last month took up a large part of the Logan City Council meeting April 18. Roofs to all city property will need replaced. They include, the city hall/community center building, Jim Wood Aquatic Center bath-

house/mechanical building, water treatment plant, city shop, storage buildings at Seventh Avenue, lift stations, pump houses and the park shelter. Many also need siding, gutters and fascia replaced. Council members said they would like a complete bid on all roofs from companies, so they are not dealing with three or four different bids. The council spent time

discussing how to go about the bidding process for the work that needed done. “It will take us awhile,” said city administrator Angela Winther. “At least until the next council meeting to come up with the specifications. We need to make sure everyone is bidding on the same thing.” The city’s two police cars also received hail damage. One was the oldest car that was to be traded in on a

new one. “We haven’t decided which route to go on that yet,” Winther said. The council also discussed whether to require an ice and water shield when shingling roofs. It is presently not required by the state and the city does not require a building permit for installing shingles. The council decided not to change requirements at the present time.

WIPCA will meet at 9 a.m., April 30 at Doyle’s Cemetery in Galland’s Grove, located four miles southeast of Dunlap. WIPCA will place a new flag, uncover tombstones that have been buried and clean the cemetery. Contact Ron Chamberlain for more information at 712-489-2736.

New attractions added to Watson Steam Train exhibit Mary Darling Editor Hop aboard for the second full season of the Watson Steam Train located in the Missouri Valley City Park. Opening day is April 30 for the season. The county attraction includes the original 1948 Ottaway coal fired steam train and 1959 diesel Ottaway that will be chugging around the tracks from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays. The original train belonged to Mark Warner’s

stepfather, John Watson and his wife Sharlotte and was given to the City of Missouri Valley and the park board by the family. According to Warner, the train hadn’t run since 2000. A new boiler was installed and all new piping. The second train is presently borrowed from a man in Chicago, Warner said. This train will be replaced next year with a new locomotive due to the generosity of four county families that donated

As of May 1, the Department of State will require the issuance of birth certificates and passport functions be completely separate, so much so as to require separate, physical offices and no access to the same computer records, etc. as birth certificates. According to Thompson, the new requirement has put dozens of county recorder offices in the state out of the passport business. County recorders have SEE PASSPORTS Page 2

From the Front

COUNCIL: Storm damage report FROM PAGE 1 city attorney for more information. The council discussed the possible installation of a sprinkler system at the swimming pool and adjoining parking lot. The city had received a bid last year from Thompsen Irrigation, but decided not to pursue it due to the cost of the parking lot. They will ask a representative of the company to walk through the property to see if the bid would need adjusted now that the parking lot is completed. The council approved a five-year contract with Westrum Leak Detection to lock in the price. Once a

year the company will test for leaks at a cost of $1,100 per year. No leaks were found this year, but leaks were found in past years. Councilmember Chris Hartwig updated the council on the Logan Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber would like to work with the city on updating the Logan Web site and include more information from the city. Hartwig also informed the council that some of the Logan banners need replaced. A Class C liquor license and Sunday sales permit was approved for Doc’s Roadhouse and a Class E liquor license, carryout

beer, wine and Sunday sales for Logan Super Foods. An outdoor service area permit for Doc’s Roadhouse was approved pending receiving the dram approval. Prior to acting on a request from the Village Green committee to close Fourth Avenue May 21 for the event, the council asked for additional information. Building permits were approved for Jason Burnham, 211 S. Third Ave., demolish burned house; Merle Radke, 114 W. Ninth S.t, 8-foot by 8foot deck; Jeff Allen, 603 W. Fifth St., 40-foot by 25foot concrete driveway.

TRAIN: Ready for a new season FROM PAGE 1 funds. “It will be built in October,” Warner said. The trains take riders along 1,700 feet of track through bridges and a tunnel. This year additional features include two mini authentic water towers. Inside the 100-foot by 32-foot train depot/museum, you will find the Robert and Trish Rand collection of mini brass Union Pacific engine replicas of every train the company built. As well as several added items including a 55-inch screen TV used to show educational train films. “Hennessey-Aman Funeral Home in Missouri Valley donated funds toward the screen,” Warner said.

This year a collection of 85 commemorative train plates, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Bill Stevens of Missouri Valley, are also on display. “They are just fantastic,” Warner said. Inside the depot you will also find a miniature HO scale train set from Craig Guttau that takes up 160 square feet. “There are over 200 hand painted buildings on it and room for seven running trains at one time. There is a roller coaster and all the buildings light up,” Warner said. The committee will also be mounting a new railroad clock outside donated by the Kiwanis Club. According to Warner, holding birthday parties at the museum has become a popular event. “We already have five pri-

vate parties booked,” he said. “There are already repeats.” To book a party you can call 712-642-2210 during operating hours or contact Warner at 644-2456. During the first year, Warner said the attraction had more than 25,000 visitors with more than 12,000 riding the train. “We had people visit our first year from 57 different countries, he said, with about 50 percent of the people that ride from the metro area.” It takes a host of volunteers to keep the facility up and running smoothly with about 70 presently volunteering their time. “We are always looking for more,” Warner said. He can be reached at 644-2456 if you would like more information.

PASSPORTS: New requirements FROM PAGE 1 issued passports since 1994. “We’ve always completed the training. We are very disappointed to hear this,” she said. “It’s not a numbers issue to us, it’s a service issue. It would just take away another service now offered at the courthouse,” Thompson said. Prior to receiving notification of the pending change last October, Thompson purchased a passport photo camera for the office making all serv-

ices available on site. “It’s been the best thing,” she said. Thompson has devised a plan to try to keep the service at the courthouse. “Rene Hiller and Margie Heffernan will continue as acceptance agents for passports,” Thompson said. “Patty Kelley and myself will no longer have access.” The passport service will also physically be in a separate location at the courthouse. Sometime after May 1 analysts of the Department of State Acceptance Facility

Oversight Program will perform an onsite inspection. “There is no guarantee this plan will be approved, but we will try,” Thompson said. “I think they will be very tough about keeping the duties separate, but I think we can do it.” If approved, service may just be more limited than before with those applying for passports needing to call ahead. If the plan isn’t approved, area residents can still obtain passports at the Missouri Valley Post Office.

Status of former Beebetown school building on Supervisor’s agenda Mary Darling Editor The the status of the Beebetown school building was on the Board of Supervisors agenda April 21. Jeromy Holeton, owner of the structure, met with the board and asked additional time to repair the building before the county started proposed condemnation procedures. He told the board he had two deaths in his family and other things that had hindered him working on the building. “If I can’t get the roof on the building by October then go ahead with it,” he told the board. Holeton purchased the building approximately four years ago and the board has given past extensions for him to complete repairs to the structure such as putting a roof on. “Two years ago you made promises and then a year ago you promised to have the roof done and clean up the property,” said Board Chairman Bob Smith. “Quite frankly we’ve been the laughing stock of people in that area. We are getting a lot of public pressure why nothing is being done. Baseball season is

going to start and there are concerns with the safety of the kids at the ballpark there.” Holeton said the building has been sealed up and the only way to get in is to pry something off. “I believe it is safe. Nothing is going to fall down on anybody,” he said. Ed Spencer, who was present at the meeting, said the building has been an eye sore forever. “Do I want to operate a business close by, no. Do I want a subdivision by it, no,” Spencer said. “I think it would take half a million dollars to even make a dent in it.” Spencer told Holeton he wasn’t against him, but had a “sizeable investment an inch away” from the property. “There comes a time when someone’s actions affect other people,” Spencer said. Smith said he felt the board had been mislead. “I could get the tape and key it up from a year ago and I bet it would be verbatim what you are saying now,” Smith said. “The county is not against you, but as elected officials we have an obligation to abate a nuisance.” Smith said the county doesn’t want the building

and doesn’t want to pay to have it removed, but can’t just sit here every April and give extensions. Board member Walter Utman said he was not in favor of giving another extension. “Sometimes things just can’t be saved.” Board member Gaylord Pitt said he was never in favor of the last extension. Craig Kelly, a member of the Harrison County Planning and Zoning Board, said he has sat in at meetings the last two years and listened. “Promises are always made and nothing is done. The big thing is the lack of any action. We hear the same thing all the time and nothing happens,” Kelly said. Smith suggested the board revisit the issue at the May 5 meeting and in the meantime listen to past recordings of meetings and consult with the Harrison County Attorney. “Ultimately, in my opinion, something has to happen,” Smith said. “We just can’t let this go on and on.” In other action the board approved two zoning changes for the Hazel Benetti estate and Larry Maguire and tabled one for Shane McCool to obtain more information.

Federal funding out in RC&D budget By Mike Brownlee WHNS Almost two weeks after the fiscal year 2011 budget was passed, Golden Hills Resource Conservation & Development in Oakland plans to move on without federal funding. The budget, passed on April 8, zeroed out federal funding for the 375 national resource conservation and development programs across the country. The organizations had been federally funded through the Natural Resource Conservation Service, and each RC&D had a coordinator from the federal service. With federal assistance cut off, Golden Hills lost two vehicles, five computers, office supplies and most importantly, employees said - NRCS coordina-

tor Shirley Frederickson, who’d worked almost 15 years with the organization. Frederickson was reassigned to the NCRS office in Oakland until she’s able to seek another job within the service. “That’s really difficult to replace,” Golden Hills local foods coordinator Bahia Barry said of what Frederickson meant to Golden Hills. Golden Hills assists rural communities through natural resource conservation programs, economic development, recreation and tourism projects, according to Barry. The organization serves eight counties in southwest Iowa: Pottawattamie, Cass, Harrison, Shelby, Mills, Montgomery, Fremont and Page. Golden Hills receives $120,000 annually from the

federal budget, employees said, an amount that through grant writing and fundraising, the no-profit organization leverages into about $2.7 to $2.9 million for projects in the area. The future for Golden Hills will involve charging for most projects they assist with. Mary Lou Goettsch, fiscal manager for the organization, said in the past they’d take a fee if possible, “but if not, that didn’t keep us from doing a worthwhile project.” “We have to pay the bills,” Goettsch said. Overall, though, employees said Golden Hills is in good shape because of its strong board of directors, stable of programs and grants, longevity in the area and because the nonprofit owns the building and land it’s on in Oakland.

From the Editor ODE TO A BROTHER-IN-LAW Last week saw the passing of my brother-in-law, John Dexter. Only 69, he fought a hard, but short, battle with lymphoma. John was one of those larger-than-life figures both in size and spirit. He was a leader and president of many groups and organizations where he lived in Racine, Wis., including the Farm Bureau, Local 180 retirees, his condo association, the Concordia Lutheran School Board and chairman of his church board. He loved politics and could talk all day on the subject. He had worked for J.I. Case for 29 years, helped farm the family farm, and then took early retirement and started a second career as a realtor. He didn’t go for the elite homes to make a big buck on commission, but worked for the little guy who was trying to buy their first home. John was a friend to all and didn’t know a stranger. He had a deep faith in God and was instrumental in starting the Concordia Lutheran School that his two sons attended and now his four grandchildren. He married my sister 41 years ago. He was a busy man with all his activities and raising two great sons. After she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis more than 10 years ago, John was always there to help my sister out when she needed the extra assistance. He was a positive person and always had a smile on his face and never once did I hear him complain. He loved to spend time talking to people and was a bundle of activity. When struck down with lymphoma the end of January, that activity turned to fighting the cancer. It was a roller coaster ride of one step ahead, two steps back, which never seemed to get on a clear path to recovery. At his visitation the line of people coming to pay their respects and show support for the family formed for three hours. At the funeral, the minister said John left big shoes to fill. Nothing could be more truthful than that. Rest in Peace Brother-In-Law.

Reunion Orphan trains were an attempt to make better lives for orphaned and abandoned children which probably saved thousands of lives. Many of the children found loving families who cared for them as if they had been born to their adoptive parents. Other children were treated as virtual slaves and some were relegated to living in barns or shacks at times. The children who lived in Dunlap, Persia and other Harrison County homes also ran the gamut of loving to abusive families. Most never knew their families, but some were reunited later in life. For example, Frank and John (not their real names) were not orphans, but their father decided he was not able to care for them after his wife died. Grief crippled him emotionally and caring for two boys while earning a living was a challenge. He thought they would enjoy better lives in a two-parent home away from the crowded city, so he contacted representatives of the orphan trains. Soon the unwilling boys

found themselves on what they regarded as a train to nowhere. They were used to urban life, but as the train rolled west, a strange virtually treeless empty land met them. The children made friends with each other but suffered the pain of losing some with each stop at a small town. Eventually, Frank and John met their new parents near the Harrison County line. Unfortunately, they went to different homes and they didn’t see each other for several years. Frank and John lived with relatively caring families who raised them the same as their own children. Both lived on farms and they learned to work hard. They also had the benefit of good schools, and while at school, John and Frank remet. Their reunion was happy, but it reminded the brothers their own family had discarded them. They talked of their anger and hurt where no one else could hear. Meanwhile, the boy’s grandfather wanted to learn their fate and reestab-

lish contacts with the family. Orphan train organizers were of little help beyond telling their probable route west. As in the Elvis song, “Kentucky Rain,” the grandfather traveled west and asked at every town which had taken orphans if anyone had seen two boys matching his description. One of two had, but most didn’t remember. After all, it had been several years. The grandfather continued on until he died of a heart attack in Indiana. The boys’ father continued the search and found them when they were in their late teens. John was amiable after his father explained why he had put the boys up for adoption. He suggested that Frank

give their father a chance, but when their dad entered Frank’s parents’ home, Frank ran out the back door. It took weeks for his father to finally meet with Frank and Frank adamantly told his father he needed him when he was abandoned, not when he was nearly an adult. In spite of the difficult first meeting, the boys’ father kept trying. Eventually, he convinced them to meet the rest of the family, and they traveled with him to Florida. The boys and their blood relatives reconciled and eventually, John moved to Florida to be closer to his father and siblings. The two brothers were luckier than most in their reunion.

News from the Extension Service

True Morels and False Morels Anhydrous ammonia tanks have been rolling down the road for a few weeks, trees are leafing out and we have had a rainfilled week. For many Iowans, that all adds up to the hallowed season of morel hunting. And not to start the stampede going, but I have heard reports of a few morels being found last week in southern Iowa. There are several species of true morels, but we have three that are most commonly found in western Iowa. The earliest seem to be the “little grey ones,” Morchella deliciosa (the delicious one). Very soon after, they are joined by the yellow morel, Morchella esculentum, which is the standard most think about in the spring. Toward the end of the season, a third species can show up called the giant morel, Morchella crassipes. Giant morels provide people those occasional “wow” moments of finding the “you can’t believe how big it is” mushrooms that grow up to 10-inches long and are occasionally shown off a the local coffee shop. Any morels you find are simply the fruiting structure that the fungus grows to produce and

spread spores. When you pick a morel you are taking the fruit from a mass of unseen fungal threads called hyphae. Plucking these morels really does little to harm the parent fungus, as long as you don’t rough up the whole area. Although morels are native wild mushrooms that are tasty, safe to eat and just as importantly are easy to identify, we do have a few mimics that can be a problem, called the false morels. Knowing the difference is important, but fortunately distinguishing between the two types is actually pretty easy. There are a few species of false morels; mimics that generally resemble the good ones, but can cause some serious health issues if they are eaten. The most common false morel is the “beefsteak” morel or Gyromitra. The false morels contain a chemical that quickly breaks down into monomethylhydrazine, or rocket fuel that is toxic. Sometimes people eat them with little apparent affect, but they can cause vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, weakness and permanent liver and gastrointestinal damage. Symptoms take

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator from 10 to 15 hours to appear after ingestion. The toxin will vaporize some especially during cooking, and people have suffered injury from simply inhaling cooking fumes in the kitchen. People have even become ill from simply riding in a closed car with false morels. In strong enough concentrations, the toxin has a chocolaty aroma that should be a signal of danger. The amount of toxin contained in a false morel can vary from patch to patch, so some people have eaten them with no apparent harm, but remember the next time can cause severe problems; don’t’ eat them. The good news is it is pretty simple to tell the true morels from the false morels. Here are three things to look for to tell them apart: •True morels are hollow; false morels are variously

filled with either folds of solid tissue or cottony masses. •True morels have pitted surfaces where spores are produced; false morels have folds and not true pits. •True morels have caps that are attached to the stem at least a third of the way down the cap; false morels’ caps either are a group of folds or hang free from the top of the cap. Morels are part of what makes spring enjoyable for many people, watching for these three clues are quick and easy to do. If you like, we would love to examine any extra morels you gather. Just bring them in to the Extension Office. We have butter, cracker crumbs and a skilled on hand here!

Seeking salute to family nominations Heartland Family Service is searching for nominations for a southwest Iowa family who exhibits strong family values, is loving and caring, encourages individual and marital growth and works well as a team. You can nominate a family to be honored in the annual Heartland Family Service, “Salute to Families” recognition program. The selected families will be honored in November at the MidAmerica Center in Council Bluffs. Nominations may be downloaded or submitted online at www.HeartlandFamilyServi or by calling Heartland Family Service at 712-435-5350 for a nomination form. Nominations will reflect

the variety of family life in the community and may include any family structure; including two parents or single parents, blended or extended families, foster or adoptive families. They may be of any ancestry, of any socioeconomic status and of any religious belief. Families will be honored in four categories: •Commitment to Family – the “average” families that are not necessarily involved in community service activities, nor have faced unusual challenges. However, they exhibit an outstanding commitment to raising children whoa re healthy in mind, body and spirit. •Challenged and Successful Family – These families must have faced an obstacle that affected their

family to a significant degree and have still maintained a strong family life. •Community Service Family – These families must have offered considerable volunteer effort to community service and have encouraged their children to learn about and accept responsibility toward others. •Leadership Family – These families must have provided outstanding leadership in the community. They are usually families with adult children who have carried on a legacy of community service and support, or families with younger children who demonstrate leadership qualities with their own peer groups. The deadline for nominations is May 1.

Will I marry her off before I lose my mind? Residents of Westmont Care Center have had several visitors and activities throughout the past couple of months. In October, they were treated to their own personal car show. The cars were courtesy of Roy and Lani Haynes who brought their 1931 and 1941 Fords; Kim and Nancy Johnson, 1940 Mercury; Jim and Sheila Knudsen, 1934 Ford; Gary and Sylvia Rorebeck, 1948 Ford; Ed and Carol Loose, 1946 Mercury; Jim Hearty, 1940 Ford; Mike Stodgill, 1951 Chevrolet and Dean Brougham, 1936 Chevrolet. The residents and staff were able to get up close and personal with the cars. The residents treated the visitors to ice cream afterwards. In December, residents and staff were able to meet some reindeer up close,

thanks to Terry and Audrey Evans’ generosity. They were able to pet the reindeer, learn some facts and

were treated to homemade Figgie pudding and Christmas carols courtesy of the Evans’.

It’s an unspoken truth – stay clear of soon-to-be-brides. With just two weeks until her wedding day, my daughter really needs to be put into timeout. Since she’s having a destination wedding, I thought it would relieve some of the last minute stress – although with nervous brides, drama can come from any direction or dilemma. Her sister actually had the best idea to deal with the emotional roller coaster that none of us are allowed to get off. The two of them have been going to a “boot camp” every night to exercise the stress away, although it would have been even better if a drill sergeant were a part of the regiment. She keeps insisting that I go with them but why would I want to torture myself that way – and I’m not talking about the exercise. We picked up the highly anticipated wedding gown, which cost more to alter than it did to purchase. I have to say the bustling process was more complicated than if she were going to wear a corset. With a long train, and, since this is a beach wedding, it has to be entirely pulled up after the ceremony. She keeps asking me if I know how to do it, and I keep saying yes, although I’m bringing duct tape and clothespins, just in case. Even though the resort has been booked for a year she feels the need to constantly keep tabs via the Internet of the weddings that are taking place each weekend. Brides write reviews and so far everything has been peachy keen, until this week, when apparently construction work began on the gazebo where the ceremony is to take place. It was the beginning, but not the end, of her total meltdown. The folks in Mexico did eventually respond to her panicked e-mails and sent her pictures of the newly constructed gazebo, which will be done by the time we arrive. The news didn’t detract the run-a-muck bride who is spending quality time thinking of all the things that could go wrong. We took a half-day vacation from work to get lastminute errands done. On top of everything else, the tags on her car were expiring in April. First on her list was to get her license renewed. The end of the month rush had people lined up clear out the door. Even though she wanted to do the right thing and wait in line all afternoon, my list of errands was quickly stirring up some stress of my own. I convinced her to leave and suggested she go early the next morning – what’s one more day going to hurt? When I answered the phone the next morning she was crying. The Sheriff Patrol who pulled her over didn’t know what he was getting into. She didn’t get a ticket, just a warning because he was probably relieved to just get her back on the road. I’m having a T-shirt made to wear to the reception: “I survived the landmines of Bridezilla-Land.”

Village Green ELECTRIC PRESENTATION Cookie jars on to mark 18 years display at event May 21 at MRA

It was 18 years ago that a group of Logan residents had the idea to start an oldfashioned community celebration and called it Village Green. This year’s event will be held from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., May 21 in the Logan City Park. Village Green is a fun, family oriented event, reminiscent of the celebrations held years ago in city parks. There will be a craft show/flea market along with a variety of live entertainment throughout the day. Food and drinks will be served from the park shelter that was built to resemble an old train station. Children’s activities will include a petting zoo, pony rides, fire truck rides, train rides and face painting. A dinner will be served in the evening with live entertainment lasting until

Village Green

7:30 p.m. Bands like the Dixie Dads, dressed in their red and white striped vests, playing Ragtime, Dixieland and Swing music, will perform from the band shell, along with other local singers. The committee is accepting registrations for crafters/flea marketers and other businesses interested in setting up a booth in the park, as well as entertainers. Contact Wilma Wagner at 644-2863.

$50K grant to Mosaic in Logan A $50,000 grant to Mosaic in Logan was among four approved by the Iowa Finance Authority Board of Directors April 6. According to IFA the grants, which totaled $200,000, will help advance affordable homeownership and rental opportunities in Logan, Fayette, Keokuk and Sioux Center. The funding is made available through the State Housing Trust Fund’s Project-Based program. “The grants will soon provide at least 16 rural Iowans with safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities,” said IFA Executive Director Dave Jamison. “These initiatives are excellent examples of projects that the State Housing Trust Fund

Project-Based program was designed to assist and are central to IFA’s mission in advancing affordable housing in Iowa. Mosaic will use the $50,000 to assist in the acquisition and improvement costs of 10 affordable rental housing units for persons with intellectual disabilities in Logan. The units will be subsidized through the HUD Section 811 program. Supportive services will be available to tenants on-site from a service provider selected by the tenant. To date in fiscal year 2011, the State Housing Trust Fund’s Project-Based program has provided $597,521 in funding to support 567 affordable housing units.

Magnolia protestant cemetery annual meeting The Magnolia Cemetery board met April 8 at Magnolia City Hall. Present were Rex Rhoten (president, Jim Rider, Bruce Norris, Doyle Knadle, Eugene Jacobsen, Michelle Rhoten (secretary/treasurer). Visitors were Doyle and Carolyn Cooper. Board members read minutes from 2010 and approved. Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Cooper asked about starting a fundraiser for the Avenue of Flags for the cemetery. Jacobsen gave a report on the flags. Donations are coming in. An account has been set up at the First National Bank of Logan, P.O. Box 7, Logan, IA 51546. Checks should be made to Seeley O’Hara Memorial Flag Fund. The legion would like to have 100 poles and flags to complete the entire cemetery. The cost is $50 including the flag. The legion would like to have some of these flags up by Memorial Day

service as funds come in. Rex Rhoten read over the income and expenses for 2010. Norris made a motion to approve, which was seconded by Rider. Approved. Rex Rhoten read over the budget for income and expenses for 2011. Paul Rhoten will stay at the same price as last year. He did increase his mowing fee last year. Norris made the motion to approve, seconded by Jacobsen. All agreed. If there isn’t enough funds for mowing it will be cut back. Rex Rhoten gave a report that there are five dead trees that need to be cut down. Last year Paul and Rex cut down two trees and one blew down in a windstorm. They donate their labor and expenses. Jim Kill and his Boy Scouts put up a flag pole by the unknown soldier grave. It was one of their project duties. Jacobsen made a motion to adjourn,

seconded by Knadle. A reminder to the public to stop setting out tin cans and glass of any kind. The flowers will be picked up seven to 10 days after Memorial Day. To make a donation to the cemetery or for more information contact Michelle Rhoten at 312 Locust St., Magnolia, IA 51550 or call 712-6482534.

A variety of cookie jars will be on display at the Museum of Religious Arts near Logan May 8 through 29. According to LeeAnn Clark, museum director, they are probably one of the most perfect items to have for Mother’s Day. “Mom’s are the foundation of faith. I believe as we reflect on our Mother’s love this Mother’s day, we can easily include cookie jar collections to be exhibited at the museum,” Clark said. As a fundraiser, cookie cookbooks obtained from “Our Iowa” magazine, will be offered for sale and volunteers will be making cookies from recipes picked from the book from noon to 4 p.m., May 8. “A couple of ingredients for the cookie recipes being served on Sunday, include chocolate and caramel. I know I have good memories of going to church on Sunday morning then heading to grandma’s with my mom to make cookies and for family time together,” said assistant museum director Rhonda McHugh. This “Best of Country Cookies” book has had a special appeal ever since it came off the press. It’s the best selling cookie book ever published with more than 300,000 copies sold. It’s filled with photos and 277 recipes. There is still space available for your cookie jar to display May 8-29. For more information call 644-3888. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

The Iowa Western Community College board of trustees voted April 18 to begin a Division I junior college wrestling program in the fall of 2011. “It’s clear we can be successful, and it’s clear there’s a need for kids that still want to wrestle and go to college,” said board member Brent Siegrist of Council Bluffs. “I think it’s great. Hopefully, everything will fall into place.” Following a presentation from IWCC Athletic Director, Brenda Hampton, the board (on a 6-2 vote)

approved the start of wrestling in the fall with the stipulation the college first interview and hire a qualified coach. That person will need to hit the ground running in terms of recruiting, making equipment purchases and scheduling meets for the upcoming season.

Financial tips for cost-conscious couples In a recent survey released by Visa Inc., 88 percent of couples believed they overspent on some aspect of their wedding. Over the years, weddings have become a major financial commitment, in many instances ensuring a couple’s first task as man and wife will be paying off the mountain of bills they accrued to achieve their dream wedding. In today’s economic climate, the cost of weddings is even tougher to swallow, as both the domestic and global economy remains difficult to predict. Economic uncertainty has left many young couples fearful of making a big financial commitment to their weddings. But it’s still

possible for couples to make the most of their wedding without landing themselves in heavy debt once the honeymoon is over and the bills must be paid. • Limit beverage availability. In the Visa survey, respondents felt they overspent more on food, drink and cake than any other aspect of their wedding. The bar tab can quickly add up at the end of the night, but couples can limit the bar expense by making only a few different types of drinks available. Offer just two or three drink options instead of a full bar. Couples can also consider a cash bar for mixed drinks to help lower the bar tab by the end of the night.

• Switch from Saturday. Saturday weddings are not only the most popular, but also the most expensive. Couples with some flexibility can save money by moving their wedding to a Friday or Sunday. Couples who move their weddings to Friday often find they get to spend more time with their friends and families the following day, as guests are more inclined to stay in town an extra day than they are on Sunday afternoons following a wedding. • Forgo a traditional honeymoon. Seventeen percent of male respondents to the Visa survey felt they overspent on their honeymoon. While it’s certainly nice to fly off to the Caribbean and spend your

first week as a married couple soaking up some sun, a more local getaway for a couple of days can be just as relaxing and save couples substantial amounts of money. Once the bills have been paid, couples can then enjoy a more traditional honeymoon, possibly in celebration of their first anniversary. • Limit the guest list. Inviting all friends and family members might be a nice gesture, but it’s also an expensive one. Cost-conscious couples can save a good deal of money by only inviting those friends and family members who are closest to them. • Order less extravagant floral arrangements. Floral arrangements for a wed-

Season wedding cake trends

ding can prove very expensive. But couples can trim those costs using more greenery in the floral displays and ordering less expensive, seasonal flowers. When discussing arrange-

ments with the florist, explain that the budget can only allow so much for flowers, and work together to find ways to add aesthetic appeal without breaking the bank.

Debbie’ss Photography Nelson Park Road Dow City, IA 51528 Debbie Gaul-Rusch The multi-tiered cake that is a favorite wedding tradition that’s often presented at the end of the night. The happy couple takes a slice and enjoys the first piece. In recent years, wedding cakes have become more of an artistic centerpiece than just a confectionary treat. Couples often seek out renowned wedding cake bakers for a cake that will amaze the crowd and complete the theme of the wedding. The average couple will spend between $700 to $800 for their wedding cake. Although many catering halls or reception sites will include the wedding cake in a package deal, many couples choose to order their cake from a specialty bakery who creates culinary masterpieces. If television trends are any indication, many people are opting to spend several hundred to thousands of dollars on a customized wedding cake. These fondant and buttercream creations may be elaborate in nature, so much so they’ll likely need to be ordered several months in advance. Couples looking for something a bit different for their upcoming nuptials, many want to consider these trends in wedding cakes. • 3-D accents on the cake, such as graphic appliques. • A black-and-white motif that gives the cake a simplistic, yet trendy appeal. • A lot of bold color in the cake, instead of just white or ivory. • Dramatic monograms that can add class to the cake. • Painted cakes with edible food coloring paint that feature beautiful landscapes or a portrait. A work of art, they’re both delicious to eat and fun to admire. • Cakes that mirror the style of the wedding gown, including fondant ruffles and appliques. Many couples still opt for the traditional, and that is always in style. Instead of experimenting with the outside of the cake, couples can be creative with cake flavor and fillings. Imagine


cutting open the cake to find red velvet or a chocolate ganache filling!

You just got engaged? Now what? Are you one of the thousands of couples who recently got engaged? This is the time for you and your soon-to-be to get everything you ever wanted – whether you’re starting from scratch, upgrading,

expanding or replacing. Turn a whole bunch of mismatched mine and yours into a lifetime of ours. “When it comes to registering, relax, take your time and have fun,” recommends Audrey Stavish, a Bridal

and Gift Registry expert at Bed Bath & Beyond. “Most brides update their registries online and go into the stores many times. There aren’t any rules that you must follow. Choose items that are right for you

and your soon-to-be. Go through the registry process together and have fun!” Here are some additional tips to make wedding planning a breeze: Plan Ahead: Start a bridal registry as soon as you say “yes.” That way guests will have lots of options for engagement gifts and showers. Periodically update your registry by adding more products if you need to, even after the wedding. Be kind to procrastinators. Do the Math: Experts advise registering for two to three items times the number of guests you plan to have. Close friends and family will rely on your registry for special events leading up to the wedding – such as engagement parties, bridal showers and holidays. Your guests will

appreciate having lots of choices when they shop for you. Be sure to refresh your list regularly as gifts get purchased. Register Now, Because You Won’t Buy it Later: You may think you will ... but you won’t. Now is the time to let others get you the stuff you’d never buy yourself. Your friends and family might even get together to purchase a higher priced “group gift.” Dream Big: Register for gifts in a range of prices and categories. This will give guests and group givers lots of options to choose from. Remember the Rule of Three: When it comes to setting your table, if you choose bold patterns for your china and flatware, pick a more simple style of glassware. Prefer intricate stemware? Pair it with simpler patterns of china and

flatware. So, it’s bold/bold/simple or simple/simple/bold. Visit a Store: It’s in your best interest to visit a store and schedule an appointment with an expert consultant who can help you with your gift selections and share great tips like “The Rule of Three,” what cookware you will need to prepare your favorite dish, what knife to use when and much more. When making your selections, it’s important to touch the towels, heft the flatware, see everything in person. C’mon Back: Most couples don’t make all their selections in a single spree. Plan on making multiple visits. Congratulations and best wishes on your engagement. Now get registering and let the gift-giving begin.

Creative ways to go get married Many weddings adhere to tradition, with a big church wedding, a white gown and a bustling reception. Still, there are some couples who prefer to do something a bit unique and unconventional. They may

choose to get married underwater or while skydiving. If a “creative” wedding is for you, here are some ideas to think about. • Prison wedding: A visit to an abandoned prison or haunted location may

appeal to the couple with a taste for the macabre. • Skydiving: The concept of taking the plunge takes on an entirely new meaning when jumping out of a plane at several thousand feet while reciting vows.

EXCEPTIONAL RECEPTIONS....... Let us ensure your wedding day celebration is Everything you dreamed it could be. We offer a beautiful reception hall and great catering

• Wedding of the “Stars”: Trekkies may want to recite vows while dressed in costume and speaking native Klingon, while Star Wars fans may want to do so with Storm Troopers attending the festivities. • Mountain climbing:

Couples can reach new heights while scaling a mountainside and saying their “I do’s.” • Life in the fast lane: Couples who are NASCAR fans can recite their vows and then take a spin at 200 mph around a neighborhood track. • Amused festivities:

Some couples might prefer to get hitched while enjoying the ups and downs of their favorite roller coaster or other amusement park rides. • Scuba diving: Some couples prefer to recite their vows with a few bubbles in between and marine life as their witnesses.

Records fall at 38th annual Ram Relays Ed Adair For the Herald-Observer More than just rain fell in Glenwood as the Lady Panthers made their mark at the Ram Invitational April 14. The invitational was separated into “A” and “B” pools with Lo-Ma finishing fourth overall and second in the “B” pool. Alex Gochenour and Karen Hutson finished 1-2 in the 100-meter hurdles. Gochenour’s time of 14:21 broke the record she set in that event in 2009. In her third time running the event, Hutson won the 400-meter hurdles in a record time of one minute 4.5 seconds, beating the old relay record by three seconds. Gochenour and Hutson also finished 1-2 in the 100-meter dash with the best times of the day in 12:49 and 12:77 respectively. Running in the 200meter dash, Gochenour again led the pack winning in 26:06 seconds. Marissa Doiel also added two team points with a fourth place finish in the event. In the 1500-meter run, freshman Haley Whisney scored six points with a second place finish in the pool “B” division, breaking the sixminute barrier with a time of 5:55. In the relays, the team of Whisney, Doiel Maysen Jones and Elaine Trussell finished third in the 4x800 meter relay. The shuttle hurdle relay team of Kia Fender, Jessica Ingham, Kendra Holcomb and Monica Lambertsen put together an exciting race as Lambertsen kicked past Atlantic’s anchor over the

Jones and Trussell teamed up with Fender and Emily Dickinson to finish third in the distance medley. In the 4x200 meter relay, Fender, Whisney, Jessica Ingham and Lambertsen added four team points with a third place finish. The Lady Panthers added more team points in the sprint medley and the 4x100 meter relays finishing third in both of those events. There was no shortage of points from the field events as the day started off with Hutson winning the long jump by nearly three feet with a leap of 16-feet 3.5inches. Kylee Loftus won the pool “B” discus with a throw of 105-feet 2-inches and Carrie Charbonneau added a third place finish with a toss of 84-feet 9inches. Loftus also won the

The Logan-Magnolia golf teams battled cold, windy and damp conditions last week in their Western Valley Conference meets at the Manning-Manilla golf course and the Onawa Country Club In the girls’ meet at Onawa, the Panthers team score of 229 finished one stroke behind Boyer Valley to take third place. IKM-Manning won the meet with a score of 218 and West Monona and Woodbine finished in fourth and fifth place with scores of 234 and 304. In individual medal play, Macy Cohrs shot the best score of the day as her round of 49 earned medalist honors for the meet. Other golfers competing for LoMa were Hannah Weber, 56; Karli Michael, 61; Melina Lambson, 63; Molly Weber, 70; and Taylor Benson, 72. In the boys’ meet, the Lo-Ma boys team finished fifth out of the six schools with a team score of 215. Other team scores at the Manning-Manilla Golf Course were Boyer Valley, 180; West Monona, 181; Woodbine, 187; IKM-Manning, 190 and Charter OakUte, 233. Individual scores for the Panthers were Cole Davis, 51; Alex Cohrs, 52; Jordan Muxfeldt, 52; Grant Whisney, 60; Clayton Lundegard, 64 and Ethan Reynek, 73. With the top three teams from the WVC South advancing to the conference championship at Majestic Hills Golf Course in Denison, both the girls’ and boys’ teams sit in position to earn one of these spots. The girls’ team is currently tied with Boyer Valley for second place in the standings, while the boys’ team is tied with IKM-Manning and Woodbine for third.

Lo-Ma to be well represented at Drake Judy Adair For the Herald-Observer Three Lo-Ma athletes will be participating in this year’s storied Drake Relays in Des Moines April 28-30. For the boys will be Levi Ettleman and the Lady Panthers will be sending Alex Gochenour and Karen Hutson. Ettleman will participate in flight one of the shot put on Thursday. As of April 23, according to Iowa Quick Stats, Ettleman sat with the 18th best throw in Iowa this year.

Levi Ettleman

Alex Gochenour

Karen Hutson

Only six feet separate 23 of the top 24 throwers in the state. On the Lady’s side, LoMa’s two athletes will be

participating in four events. According to reports it is almost unheard of to have an athlete in four events, much less two ath-

letes from one school participating in four events. Hutson and Gochenour will be competing in the 100-meter dash, the 100-

meter hurdles, the 400meter hurdles and the long jump. Gochenour currently has the best times in Iowa in both the 100-meter hurdles and the 400-meter hurdles and is the defending Drake Champion on both events. Hutson is ranked second in the 400-meter hurdles behind teammate Gochenour and ranked second in Iowa in the long lump. Other western Iowa athletes who will be looking to make a big impact at the Drake Relays will be Glenwood’s Johnny

Fuller who won last year’s boys 3200-meter and 1600-meter runs. IKMManning’s Alex Halbur and Charter Oak-Ute’s Nicole Dobernecker will be battling for the top spot in the girls shot put. Shelby Houlihan from Sioux City East will be chasing history looking to win three distance events in the 800-meter, 1500meter and 3000-meter runs. The Drake Relay’s high school division is an all class pool. Winners of events will carry the title of “Best in Iowa.”
