Officials keep eyes on roads, levees for flooding Mary Darling The levees in the county began to lose their fight June 25, straining from the pressure of floodwaters with a levee breach occurring one mile south of mile marker 2 on U.S. Highway 30 that morning. It was an approximate 100-yard breach near Casey Trail between Missouri Valley and Blair, Neb. Law enforcement officials contacted residents in the area of impact and recommended evacuations. They continue to closely monitor the situation and reported that Highway 30 could be closed SEE FLOODING Page 2

Fourth of July: Holiday activities FLOODING: Officials on watch FROM PAGE 1 from businesses and individuals. To continue this annual event, the chamber continues to ask for donations to help finance the rising cost of the fireworks

display. On Monday, July 4 the annual parade will kick off at 10:30 a.m. on Seventh Street and follow the regular route throughout town. The theme this year is “Reaching for the Stars.”

Entries to be judged need to be in place by 9:30 a.m. The parade will be full of floats, antique cars, tractors, horses, kids and bands celebrating the holiday. No water balloons are allowed in the parade.

COUNCIL: Repair bids FROM PAGE 1 ice permit for the same day. Steve Johnson of Doc’s Roadhouse requested permission to close the alley behind his business on the Fourth of July for a beer garden and requested a

Class B outdoor service permit for the same date. The council approved his request contingent upon all paperwork being completed and received. Cigarette permits were approved for Logan Super Foods, Logan Country

Store, Logan Mini-Mart, and Fuel-N-Shine. A building permit for Vulcan Industries, 318 East Seventh Street to remodel and add bathrooms was approved by the council. The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m., July 11.

OPEN SEATS: Council, school board FROM PAGE 1 of the board and Gochenour, vice-president, have indicated they will run again. Serving on a school board is a challenging job that requires leadership, vision and dedication. School board members are locally elected public officials charged with accountability for student learning, determining educational goals, setting policy, overseeing school finances and other duties.

More than 2,000 men and women serve on local school boards, guiding the education of 483,000 students in Iowa at an annual expenditure of more than $3.8 billion. Nomination papers for school board seats are available from local school board secretaries. School board candidates must obtain the signatures of at least one percent of the qualified electors of the district or 50-electors, whichever is less, but at least 10 signatures.

On the Logan City Council, the seats of Mayor Randy Fetter and council members Scott Moss, Dee Clark and Chris Hartwig are open for re-election this fall. The term of office for mayor is two years and council members fouryear terms. You may file nomination papers for the city election starting Aug. 29. Fetter and Clark said they plan to run again for office. Hartwig is undecided at this time.

Clark president of SWIA Realtors Larry Clark of rural Mondamin was recently installed as the 100th president of the Southwest Iowa Association of Realtors. Clark was first licensed in real estate in 1985 and achieved broker status in 1997. He is now principal broker of United Country Loess Hills Realty and Auction in Missouri Valley, Onawa and Treynor and licensed in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. “The first thing I did after starting my own company was to join a board of realtors,” Clark said. “I felt that was the

single most important thing I could do for my clients and my salespeople. All agents agree to follow the realtors code of ethics which holds them to a higher level of professionalism. Also, only realtors can be members of a multiple listing service where brokers share listings and compensate each other.” The Southwest Iowa Association of Realtors is a membership based organization providing programs and benefits to members in Pottawattamie, Harrison, Mills, Montgomery, Fremont and Page

Counties and is looking to expand into more counties in the region. “I have several goals for my term as president,” Clark said. “My first is to increase membership and geographic footprint of our association, in a challenging time for real estate in general.” According to Clark the board of directors has agreed to waive the $500 initiation fee for any new members joining by the end of the year. For more information you can contact Clark at 402-290-2312 or at LaryC@ucloesshills.com.

This levee built just east of Blair, Neb., raised the eyebrows of locals who thought it was built to protect a local farmer’s farmland at the cost of flooding Highway 30. The reality was, stopping the water there prevented the highway from flooding further east where the roadbed is lower, thereby keeping the highway open. WHNS photo

FROM PAGE 1 without advance warning if water reached the highway. As of June 22 260th Street northwest of Modale was closed due to flooding and on June 23 Carroll Trail closed from 235th Street to 240th Street due to water overtopping the roadway. On June 26 officials reported Corning Avenue from 307th Street to 222nd Street was also closed as well as Casey Trail and 317th Street. On June 22, the release of water at Gavins Point Dam was increased to 155,000 cubic feet per second and on June 23 to 160,000 cfs. This amount is projected to last through mid August, Oliver said. The Iowa Department of Transportation also reported on June 22 that it would deploy flood mitigation strategies for Interstate 29 and U. S. 30 near Missouri Valley. They were expected to begin the work this week. According to the IDOT they realize U.S. 30, I-29 and the Missouri River crossing between Missouri Valley and Blair, Neb., are important routes. The IDOT said they have examined the area including the location of levees, roadway elevations, hydraulics, railroad and area creeks and streams to determine what, if any mitigation strategies could be deployed to keep the roadway open. They have determined two scenarios that would cause an inundation of the roadways in this area. The first scenario involves a breach or overtopping of the levee upstream from U.S. 30. For this scenario, the IDOT said, there are no emergency mitigation efforts that would prevent the roadways from being inundated due to the volume of

water and characteristics of the area. The second scenario involves a breach or overtopping of the levee downstream from U.S. 30. The IDOT has developed a plan that would help mitigate the flooding on U.S. 30 west of Missouri Valley and I-29 north of the I-29/U.S. 30 interchange. According to IDOT officials, the flooding situation is very complex and vulnerability of the levee systems and increased water levels could result in additional road closures. A volunteer band of farmers, construction workers along with local, state and federal officials have been working in the vicinity of U.S. Highway 30 east of Blair, Neb., to stave off flooding for the past several weeks. They are being credited for holding off the worst of the flooding for about 5,000 residents of the area, which stretches from the Solider River north of Mondamin to the northern edge of Pottawattamie County. This effort began early in June when Larry Buss, of Logan, a retired hydrological engineer from the Army Corps of Engineers, made calls to Harrison County officials and others asking if a group could be organized to defend western Harrison and northern Pottawattamie Counties as the river rose. Buss found himself the head of the coalition. “I knew there was a system of old levees out there,” he said. “If we raised them, repaired them and built a couple of short sections, we could maybe put up a fight and hold the water back,” Buss said. Leaders in both Missouri Valley and Modale credit the coalition with protecting the towns from flood-

waters, at least for the time being. “I truly believe the effort of this coalition has bought critical time for us in Missouri Valley – time that we would not otherwise have had,” said Missouri Valley Mayor Clint Sargent. In addition to Missouri River levees, the team fixed about 30 miles of levees along area tributaries including the Boyer River, Solider River and Allen Creek. The group hopes the Federal Emergency Management Agency will help cover costs of the work, which has surpassed $500,000. If not, the area levee districts and other entities may have to raise property taxes. On average the levees were raised by 24 to 30 inches. United States Geological Service gauges on June 26 showed river levels of 34.81-feet at Sioux City and 32.39 at Blair, Neb. The Little Sioux River at Turin was measured at 16.19-feet; Solider River, 4.52; and Boyer River, 6.00. The Red Cross Shelter at Missouri Valley is open and the Iowa Concern Hotline has been identified as the official contact site by Governor Branstad. “Information is being sought by the state of Iowa to assist in determining if criteria are being met to request a presidential individual assessment declaration,” Oliver said. Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperation and MidAmerican Energy are keeping a close contact with customers on disconnect necessity, timing and notification. Agencies are working together to supply power, Oliver said. For more updates visit harrisoncountyia.org. Leslie Reed contributed to this article.

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.

Spread patriotism beyond the Fourth of July I’ve been accused of being too patriotic, which sometimes is irritating to others. Most of the time I’m laid back but don’t get me started on people who take their freedom for granted and don’t give recognition to those who paid and are still paying the price to enjoy celebrating the Fourth of July. Our family tends to have deep discussions, which sometimes lead to loud debates, and I usually play referee for topics such as religion or politics. It is, after all, their freedom to believe in whatever their hearts’ desire. They know I’ll have my say if someone starts bashing our country or the military. Gripe about the government, whine about taxes but don’t ever let me hear you grumble about living in the United States or object to those who have served or are serving in our military. In my mind, regardless of what the government does or doesn’t do, they don’t make or break our country. The Constitution begins with, “We the people” not, “The government.” Regardless of what shape the economy is or isn’t in, whether we agree that we’re all probably going to disagree – the United States of America is our land, our country and our responsibility. President Kennedy said it best – “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.” My boyfriend and I are going to spend the weekend with his daughter, who’s in the Navy, stationed in Virginia for the Fourth of July weekend. It’s been awhile since her last deployment, although she could very well be sent to a foreign country again. Even so, she’s not at home with family and it broke my heart when she was alone for the last holiday, as her favorite “sailor” was on deployment. We will celebrate our freedom by giving her our undivided attention, hugs and kisses, to tide her over. I’m leaving town but I will still worry about dad. Even though he’ll be in my sister’s care, I tend to think that no one can take better care of him than I can. Last evening, after he had settled in after a big day at my friends’ house (aka adult daycare) some neighborhood kids began shooting off fireworks. Dad jumped, startled at the banging, and my first thought was that the noise was going to send him back to the war. I reassured him it was just firecrackers and then he started looking around for something and I had a good idea what it was. I hid his photo album he had made during the war, because it was upsetting him. He wanted to remember, so I sat it in front of him. “You know those guys are still fighting over there,” he said and I wasn’t sure if he was in past or present time. “That’s what those firecrackers are all about,” he continued with a smile, “our freedom.” Happy Fourth of July and be patriotic today and everyday.

The Big Fish Like all floods, water in 1952 sought low spots and moved topsoil from one place to another. Once low lands filled, the water moved to progressively higher ground and it became the home of fish. They feasted on grain from exploded bins, ungleaned corn and other food; feedlots, yards and living rooms became their domain. For a rare period, the fish were not limited by the constraints of river dikes or levees. They enjoyed unfettered freedom for the first time in their lives. However, as with all floods, the water grudgingly surrendered its hard-won territory and within a week or so, high spots appeared above the water. Flooded-out residents eagerly waited for the water to subside so they could survey the damage and begin the awful task of repair and recovery. The fish faced a less happy fate. Some managed to return

to the streams and lakes as the water retreated, but most were trapped in dwindling ponds. Life continues for a week or two, but for the desperate fish, options were shrinking with the falling water levels. Many died in open fields and provided fertilizer for the next crop. Others found sanctuary in still full road ditches. As roads became passable, a few drivers noticed road ditches swirled when disturbed, and they realized the water held thousands of fish. Word of mouth brought scores of families to the road ditches, and they waded through the water catching fish. Some filled their pickups with fish. Dad scorned their efforts because he thought the polluted, muddy water had altered the taste of the fish. He wanted some of the largess the flood provided, but he chose another way. Drainage tubes opened to let field water

flow back into the streams. The Harrison-Monona Ditch flowed through our farm, and at first, there was no time to fish. Our farmstead had been protected by a dike, but after the water retreated, the dike held several feet of water around the buildings. We had to dig trenches in the levee so our house could dry out. Later, dad noticed a strange sight. As water poured from our field into the ditch, fish jumped upstream toward the drainage tube as salmon do. He decided that if bears can catch salmon, he could catch fish too. My

father climbed down toward the tube and waited for a fish. Several leapt through the water, but they were too fast and slippery for dad. He grabbed several, but they slid out of his hands. After a half-hour or so, a huge carp leapt through the air, and dad caught her tail. She nearly escaped and hit dad’s face several times. In the end, we had carp for dinner. It was a big fish, and to my young eyes, it must have been 20-inches long. The carp was delicious even with its many bones. It was one of the few good things to come from the big flood.

News from the Extension Service

How much nitrogen in a standard carp? My western Iowa Extension agronomist colleagues and I have decided that is our answer when campus staff ask, “What are some questions about crops that we can answer?” Of course we would have to figure out what a standard carp is, and how we might get it uniformly distributed across a field. The good thing is that there are people out there that are trying to think of ways to help. Having shared my opening humor salvo, I have begun to hear casual talk about the potential effects of the inundation on cropland. My advice is that thought for most crop considerations it is obviously way, way, way…WAY too early for most questions and answers; don’t worry yourself until you are hurt. We have had somewhere in excess of 10,000 acres affected one way or another in Harrison County. What happens from here out just depends on many factors. How deep is the water, how much current/deposition of sediment was there, what sorts of junk washed up, and probably the biggest one – how long will the water be here are all unknown variables to deal with. Because we don’t know…the best advice

now is to limit concerns with things that you can do now. Grain movement from sites with potential flooding has been a big thing, and I believe is now mostly completed. If you haven’t dealt with all that, it is something you can do now. Also document any and all flood-related expenses and activities so you have them in the probable event of disaster program payments becoming available. Here are a couple of things I have heard going around, coupled with my early thoughts about them: • Flooded land will not grow a crop for (fill in the blank)…two, three, four years post-flood…..There is no magic rule, but mostly untrue. There likely may be areas that will have considerable reshaping and leveling, and there will be debris in areas, but other fields will likely come through fine. Extension will deal with the “fallow field syndrome” when we know more about what is left of the season, if-any, post flood. The fallow syndrome will get talked about, but we will address that when we know more what suggestions are appropriate. • No doubt there will be claims to sell all kinds of foo-foo dust (or is that

phew phew? I never can remember) that will reinvigorate the soil something like that…..From here on out, be careful about magical cures or magical solutions. There is something about a flood or other disaster that brings out both the best, and sadly the worst, in different people. There was an article today in the Sioux City Journal about flooded trees and landscape plants. Remember that the local native riparian (river zone) plant species are likely more able to endure flooding conditions. There is a reason that cottonwoods, silver maples, etc., predominated along the river. But inundation for ore than a few weeks will take its toll. Sad as it is to say, the best advice if you have land with standing or flowing water is to ask yourself what you can do. In most cases, the answer

is nothing, no just wait and let nature sort things out. Finally for everyone: if you haven’t already, make a list of any medications, bank accounts and records, or other farm or personal business matters that you might need and prepare a “plan B” for coping with these the next few months. If you are stumped or overwhelmed about how to do any of that, the Iowa Concern Hotline is there to help you, and just knowing you can get trusted answers is worth a lot. Call at any time to 800-447-1985. Although they will ask you tracking questions, your call is always confidential. They are friends you haven’t met yet.

Neighbors Lo-Ma science greenhouse funds kickoff The Harrison County Farm Bureau in conjunction with Logan-Magnolia Ag Science teachers K.C. Kersten and Klint Kersten, announce the kickoff of the fundraising campaign for the Lo-Ma Ag Science Greenhouse. Harrison County Farm Bureau is heading up the fundraising effort with the kickoff to begin during the annual Logan Fourth of July celebration. The Lo-Ma Ag Science Greenhouse is a tool to bring hands on learning to students. Freshman through seniors will have the opportunity to learn the trials and rewards of raising food and understand the role agriculture plays in their community. Specifically students will grow plants, raise bucket

calves, chicks and quail and participate in aquaculture, composting and natural fertilizer production. In addition, the Lo-Ma shop class will have the opportunity to build the greenhouse. The Lo-Ma Ag Science Greenhouse will be located on the east side of the school. It will contain a sponsorship board in appreciation for all those who help fund the structure. The 2011 senior class has donated $1,000 towards the purchase of the greenhouse and the Harrison County Farm Bureau has pledged to be a title sponsor. Look for more details on the Fourth of July or contact the Harrison County Farm Bureau office at 644-2701, ext. 1.

Law enforcement agencies to take part News from in traffic enforcement the Pisgah area Coinciding with the Independence Day holiday, Iowa law enforcement agencies will be out in full force July 1-4. Officers will work hard to crack down on alcohol or drug impaired drivers and other traffic violators to prevent crashes and save lives. The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department will be working on this project. Baseball games, fireworks and parades can all be part of Iowan’s July 4 celebrations. Unfortunately, some people celebrate by consuming excess amounts of alcohol, and then electing to drink and drive, which can easily lead to tragedy. The Iowa Department of Transportation recorded five fatalities during the 2010 Fourth of July weekend, up from two in 2009. Iowa has

been fortunate the past four years with no alcohol related crashes that resulted in a death. Iowa law enforcement continues to emphasize the importance of buckling up, driving the speed limit and obeying all traffic laws, not only during increased travel periods like holidays but, throughout the year. Iowa’s safety belt law has been in effect for 25 years. During a similar enforcement effort in July 2010, 214 agencies had contact with 353 alcohol/drug impaired drivers; 1,008 safety belt violators and 4,592 speed violators. In all, over 11,228 violations were recorded. In addition, officers assisted 965 motorists, investigated 366 crashes and apprehended 107 wanted persons.

Museum of Religious Arts open for business as usual The Museum of Religious Arts continues to be open even during the uncertain times of the projected flooding.

Young talent shines Panther softball team for Lo-Ma JV BB team adds three more wins Judy Adair For the Herald-Observer While many schools are struggling to field a varsity team, the Lo-Ma Panthers have enough young talent waiting in the wings to field a junior varsity team and two freshmen teams. The Panthers JV baseball team has a record of five wins and three losses so far this season. May 31 Lo-Ma JV 8 – Boyer Valley JV 1 The Lo-Ma JV baseball team got its first victory by defeating the Bulldogs of Boyer Valley. Grant Whisney started on the mound for the Panthers. Whisney pitched two innings allowing no hits, no runs and striking out three batters. Kyle Dickman pitched the last inning facing seven batters, allowing one run on two hits and striking out two. Dickman helped his cause at the plate by getting two hits and one RBI. Logan Melby also added two hits. Caden McDonald, Brennan Azinger, Nick Knudsen and Brandon Buffum had one hit each. June 1 Lo-Ma JV 2 – IKMManning 7 The Lo-Ma JV team suffered a loss to the Wolves of IKM-Manning. Freshman Nick Edney was the starting pitcher for the Panthers. Edney pitched three innings giving up two runs on one hit. Edney tried to help his cause by going two for three at the plate. Dillon Wills came in to pitch two and two-third innings. Wills allowed five runs on four hits and struck out four. Brennan Azinger had two hits, Grant Whisney and Jacob Kirk had one hit each. June 2 Lo-Ma JV 6 – Missouri Valley JV 2 Combining the talents of Nick Knudsen and Paul Hutson on the mound, the Panthers JV baseball team defeated the Big Reds of Missouri Valley. Knudsen started on the mound for the Panthers. Pitching three innings, Knudson allowed only two runs on one hit and struck out five. Hutson

Photo: Cami Ettleman pitched one and two third innings. Facing six batters, Hutson allowed no runs and no hits. In the fourth inning, the Panthers broke open a tie game with hits from Dillon Wills, Knudsen, McDonald, Kirk, and a home run by Melby. Edney went two-for-two at the plate while Brett Greenwood added one. June 7 Lo-Ma 6 – West Harrison 1 McDonald pounded out two doubles helping the Panther JV team to a victory over the Hawkeyes of West Harrison. Knudsen hurled a two-hitter for LoMa, pitched four innings, allowed two hits, one run and struck out four Hawkeyes. Turning in a good pitching performance the Hawkeyes held the Panthers to only four hits. Wills and Dickman added the other hits for the Panthers. June 10 Lo-Ma 2 – Ar-We-Va 3 In a close game, the LoMa JV team suffered its second loss of the season when they traveled to Westside to play the Ar-We-Va Rockets. The joint pitching efforts of Greenwood, Whisney and Edney allowed three runs on six hits. Knudsen and Brandon Buffum had one hit each. June 14 Lo-Ma 4 – Ar-We-Va 3 When the Rockets traveled to Logan the outcome was in the Panthers favor. Edney pitched a complete game allowing three runs on five hits and struck out

four. At the plate, Brennan Azinger had two hits including a home run to help seal the win for the Panthers. McDonald, Greenwood, Dickman and Buffum added one hit each for the Panthers. June 15 Lo-Ma 8 – Harlan 14 Playing on the road, the Panthers traveled to Harlan to play the Cyclones. Starting on the hill for the Panthers was Knudsen. He pitched three and one third innings allowing five runs on seven hits. Lo-Ma kept the game close until the fourth inning when the Cyclones scored 12 runs on seven hits. First baseman, Logan Melby, had two singles and a double to lead the Panthers in hitting for the night. Azinger added two doubles and McDonald, Greenwood, Whisney and Dillon Wills added one hit each. June 16 Lo-Ma 9 – Tri-Center 8 The Panthers pulled out the victory in the last inning of the game against the TriCenter Trojans. Trailing by two runs in the top of the third inning the Panthers got four runs on three hits to put them up by two. Batting in the bottom of the third, the Trojans got one more run to add to their total but it wouldn’t be enough for the win. Starting pitcher Wills allowed eight runs on five hits. Wills also helped his cause at the plate by getting two hits. Knudsen and Kirk had one hit and two RBI’s. McDonald, Whisney and Buffum had one hit each.

Brittany Greenwood For the Herald-Observer June 23 vs Boyer Valley June 23, the Lo-Ma Panthers played two varsity games. The first game was against Boyer Valley in a Western Valley Conference game held in Logan. Boyer Valley took an early two to zero lead, but the Panthers responded with one run in the first inning, four more in second, two in the third and one in the sixth. The Panthers had nine hits on the night. Abby Foutch and Kendra Holcomb were both two-for-three and Haleigh Rife had one hit and added two RBI’s. Courtney Oviatt, Kelsey Frisk, Chelsea Lautrup and Kendall Forsen all had one hit a piece. Frisk had five strikouts getting the win 8-4. June 23 vs St. Alberts The second game of the evening was played against St. Albert. The Panthers got one run in the second inning when Audrina Dickman led the inning off with a single and later scored on a sacrifice hit by Kendall Forsen. The Panthers got two more runs in the fifth inning. Lautrup and Dickman reached base

Coutney Oviatt ready for the hit in a game last week. Photo: Taylor Kuhl with a base hit and a walk respectively and both scored. The Panthers added one more run to their lead winning 4-1. Offensively, Rife was 3for-4 at the plate. Lautrup and Dickman had two hits and Foutch, Frisk, Emily Clark, Forsen and Holcomb had one hit. Dickman picked up the win in the pitcher’s circle. June 24 vs Woodbine June 24, the Panthers

played another Western Valley Conference game against Woodbine. The Panthers were losing three to nothing until the fourth inning. The Panthers hit through their entire batting order scoring five runs. That was all the scoring for the Panthers getting the conference win 5-3. Oviatt had three hits with two RBI’s, followed by Rife, Frisk, Lautrup and Holcomb who each had one.

Lo-Ma baseball defense hard to contain No. 1 Panthers team averaging 13 runs By Kevin White World-Herald News Service Will Azinger doesn’t know if he has the best Class 2-A baseball team in the state. The Iowa High School Baseball Coaches Association thinks he does, because it has LoganMagnolia atop its 2-A ratings. The Panthers coach just knows how he wants his players to react to the rating. “I just tell the boys that means that some people out there respect you,” he said. “But one thing about respect, fellas? Respect doesn’t run, throw, hit or catch.” Logan-Magnolia finished 20-4 last season and graduated just one senior. The Panthers won their fifth straight conference or division title, taking the South Division of the Western Valley Conference for the second straight year after winning the final three Boyer Valley Conference crowns. So Azinger knew he would have a good team this year. Especially when it’s anchored by seniors Nolan Oviatt, Levi Ettleman and Evan Mikels.

Oviatt is a four-time state wrestling place-winner and two-time runner-up. He will wrestle at Midland University. Mikels is an Iowa Western Community College football recruit who earned first-team all-state honors in that sport. Oviatt and Mikels led Lo-Ma to a sweep of the conventional and dual state wrestling titles. And Ettleman’s senior year already has yielded first-team all-state football honors, The Daily Nonpareil’s Southwest Iowa Player of the Year award in basketball and a secondplace finish in the 2-A state shot put. He’ll play basketball at Northwestern College and also may join the track team. On the diamond, none of them is a slouch. They carry the top three batting averages on the team. Oviatt is at .463 with 13 steals, Mikels checks in at .455 with a team-best 27 RBI’s and Ettleman is at .429 with 21 RBI’s and 10 steals. Ettleman (3-0, 0.42 ERA) is one of the team’s top two pitchers and Mikels (2-0, 3.00 ERA) also contributes on the mound. Azinger said the success in other sports certainly car-

ries over. The Panther football team made the I-A quarterfinals, while the basketball team reached the 2-A substate final. He said he tries to reduce the tension in the summer, after his kids have gone through more pressure-packed sports during the school year. “Baseball kind of lends itself to being a more relaxed atmosphere,” Azinger said. “We try to keep our practices pretty loose. I want it to be fun and enjoyable.” It’s fun when you’re averaging 13 runs per game, like the Panthers. They’ve hit double figures in 12 of 15 games, and their lone loss was a 14-8 setback to Class 3-A Harlan. “Most of our juniors and seniors have been playing

varsity ball since they were freshmen and sophomores,” Azinger said. “They just kind of know the routine and they’re fairly aggressive.” Other regulars batting over .300 include juniors Quin Mann (.405, 18 RBI’s) and Zach Powley (.400), sophomore Paul Hutson (.367) and freshman Brett

Greenwood (.353). Azinger can call on seven or eight players for mound work. Mann (3-1, 2.63 ERA) and Ettleman are the top two, while junior Nate Fender (1-1, 1.62 ERA) has logged the third most innings. Logan-Magnolia has never reached the state baseball tournament, but

Azinger isn’t concerned about that, or the ratings, right now. He knows his club is far from perfect. “One of my other favorite sayings with the kids is, if you can’t make mistakes, you can’t make anything,” he said. “Meaning that it’s OK to make them, but you’ve got to learn from them.”

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Crum to approve Resolution 11-11. A resolution setting salaries of city employees. 4 ayes. Agenda item 10 was to review the bids received for hail damage to city buildings in March. Bids were received from HC Bertelsen Stick and Steel Builders, Collins Construction, Home One-Gutter Pro, Pro Builders Solutions and Triple C Roofing. Triple C Roofing bid only the foam roof building that they had replaced several years ago. Their bid was for $2,700 for that one building. The bid from HC Bertelsen was $125,860, Collins Construction $91,564.25, Home One-Gutter Pro, $60,721.40 and Pro Builders Solutions

$129,047.74. Only the bids from HC Bertelsen and Pro Builders Solutions appeared to be complete bids. Collins Construction was missing a bid for the foam roof as well as two other buildings. The Home-One Gutter Pro bid was missing several buildings including the foam roof. The clerk provided the council with a side-by-side comparison on each building of the bids but HC Bertelsen was a complete bid with no break out per building. The clerk mentioned that the Pro Builders bid also included sales tax and as the city is exempt, she had removed the tax from the total bid price. Harold Bertelsen was present for the meeting and stated that he had also included sales tax in his bid price but he would need to look at his bid sheets to see how much the tax was. The council reviewed all the bids and discussed that since Pro Builders Solutions was the highest bid and Home One-Gutter Pro was not complete enough, those two bids would probably not be awarded the job. The council asked the clerk to get references from HC Bertelsen and Collins Construction. They also wanted to know how much sales tax was included in Bertelsen’s bid and if all buildings were included in the Collins Construction bid or not. The council will discuss and possibly award bid(s) at the July 11 meeting. Agenda item 11 was a request from the 4th Ave. Grill to close the

alley behind the restaurant on July 4 for a beer garden. Motion was made by Moss and seconded by Crum to approve the closing of the alley behind the 4th Ave. Grill on July 4 for a beer garden. 4 ayes.

made by Hartwig Crum to approve Outdoor Service

Ave. Grill for July 4, 2011. 4 ayes. Agenda item 13 was Doc’s Roadhouse requesting permission to close the alley behind Doc’s on July 4 for a beer garden. Steve Johnson was not available at the meeting and the clerk reported that she had not received notification that the Class B Beer Outdoor Service permit had been approved by the state yet. If the permit is not approved by the State, then Doc’s will not be able to have a beer garden. Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Moss to approve the request to close the alley behind Doc’s Roadhouse on July 4 for a beer garden pending approval of the Outdoor Service permit. 4 ayes.
