Mary Darling Editor On June 27, President Barack Obama signed a disaster declaration for the state of Iowa and ordered federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the areas struck by

flooding that began May 25. Federal funding is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private organizations on a cost-sharing basis in the counties of Harrison, Fremont, Mills, Monona, Pottawattamie and Woodbury for debris removal and emergency

protective measures including direct federal assistance. Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide. “The damage being caused by the ongoing flooding along the Missouri River needed a quick response from the presi-

dent,” said Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa. “I’m glad President Obama made these funds available to help Iowans start the clean up process.” This declaration does not include aid to individuals and businesses. However, the division is working with local emergency manage-

Nikki Davis For the Herald-Observer Many areas are flooded along the banks of the Missouri River. That was before the Army Corp of Engineers decided to increase the releases from Gavins Point to 160,000 cubic feet per second on June 23 as a result of continued rain throughout the Missouri River Basin. According to a press release from U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, “The

impact of an additional 10,000 cfs to the current 150,000 cfs will result in an increase in river stages from 0.7 to 1 foot at Sioux City, Ia., and 0.3 to 0.4 of a foot from Omaha to Rulo, Neb. At St. Joseph, Mo., the river stage rise will be roughly 0.6 foot, and at Kansas City, the rise will be roughly 0.7 foot. Actual stages will depend on tributary inflows.” So far, the flood, or potential to flood, has driven many to evacuate – voluntarily or involuntari-

ly. And it’s not just the humans that are being forced to evacuate. Wildlife will definitely feel the impact of the 2011 flood, the most obvious among those is aquatic life. “Fish are the most obvious animal that will be moving as the water leaves the river and lakes,” Harrison County Conservation board Naturalist Connie Betts said. “They will be washed into ditches and other areas.”

Betts stated many causalities may take place when the water recedes, and asks patrons to not try to rescue them. “Please do not try to rescue them and return them to the river or other lakes and streams. It may cause problems in these new areas when new species are introduced and they most likely will not survive the process,” Betts said. SEE WILDLIFE Page 2

From the Front

WILDLIFE: Flood to impact

RECYCLE: Save energy, money



DNR Conservation Officer for Harrison County Dave Tierney agrees. “Fish will be trapped in pockets of water when it recedes, but some of those will work their way out. But, in the short term, the flooding might be good for them. They have plenty of trees and lots of cover, so in the short term they’ll be OK,” Tierney said. Larger land animals, such as deer, turkey, raccoons and more, will also be seeking higher ground, moving out of and away from flooded areas. “What I’ve noticed is deer out in the field where there may be flood waters, but hasn’t been completely invaded,” Tierney said. “I’ve even seen some in DeSoto Bend standing in some of the fields,” Tierney said. Tierney stated his belief in the adult deer population being able to survive, but cast doubt about fawns. “The little ones can swim, and I’ve seen a lot of deer in the fields with fawns with them,” Tierney said. “I think you’re going to lose some of the fawns as the adults move to higher ground. They just don’t have the stamina to swim as long as the adults.” Tierney’s thoughts on turkeys were similar, stating his belief that the adult population will thrive, but the poults may take a hit. “The poults just aren’t strong enough to fly a mile or two, only short distances,” he said. But Betts has a different idea on the larger, primary land animals. “Most baby animals are old enough that they will be able to survive on their own,” she said. “Animals in flooded areas are not any more prone to other diseases, but they may be in ‘your space’ for a while until they move on.” Both Betts and Tierney also shared their concerns regarding reptiles – primarily snakes.

of recyclable steel, and the energy saved by recycling it is equivalent to almost 290 kilowatt-hours. “The members of the electric cooperative in western Iowa have been eager to get rid of old, inefficient appliances,” said Cathie Shively, NIPCO. “In the first year of our recycling program, they sent 271 appliances to be recycled and earned a $25 bonus for each unit. All the appliances are appropriately recycled, never refurbished, so we know those old, inefficient units will not be wasting precious electric resources.” Customers of MidAmerican will also receive a rebate when they recycle a qualifying old appliance. The program is designed to help customers save energy, money and help the environment. MidAmerican offers rebates of $50 for refrigerators and freezers and $25 for window air conditioners. In addition to the rebates, customers may also take advantage of company rebates on the purchase of new energy-efficient appliances. “We are pleased to offer the appliance recycling program because it benefits our customers and the environment,” said Diane Mumms, vice-president

FLOOD OF 2011 “Snakes will be looking for dry ground and often find small places to hide,” Betts said. “While we only have one water snake in Harrison County, all snakes can swim if needed. Some may be aggressive, but they are not poisonous. Just leave them alone and they’ll usually move on.” Tierney had a different worry regarding the population of the snakes. “Snakes, in general, are getting pushed out of fields and ditches, and when you add the water, they are going to move to dry land, even though that dry land may be surrounded by water,” Tierney said. “I think there are issues of snakes maybe moving into some people’s houses. But just the other day I saw a mink carrying a large grass snake. The snake was pushed out of the flood waters and pushed onto the road. The mink just grabbed a hold and I think we will see a lot of that.” Tierney also wanted to point out one more, perhaps, not so obvious flood impact on wildlife. To birds. Songbirds. “One thing I don’t think a lot of people are thinking about are the song birds,” Tierney said. “Think about it. Like robins. The babies jump out of the nest and fall to the ground. Instead of jumping out to the ground, they’ll fall into the water and will just not make it. This won’t just affect the song birds, it will affect owls. Generally towards July there can be

three or four owls in a nest. When they fall to the ground … they will never reach it.” Tierney does believe there won’t be any long term effect, believing that as the water recedes, the animals will move back in. “This is a long term event – about three months is what I’ve been hearing. But it’s really only a small area when you consider the whole state of Iowa,” Tierney said. Both Betts and Tierney more than agreed on one point – not attempting rescue of any animals. “Just remember that most of the time, there is no need to ‘rescue’ wildlife. They will be fine on their own,” Betts said. “I know people want to help, but this is just Mother Nature,” Tierney said. “She can be cruel. But there’s a limit on what you can do to help. I recently had a lady call and tell me a deer was stuck and asked what her options were. I had to explain that we could not go try to recover the deer and even if we did, the stress during the rescue might make the deer die anyway. It’s just nature. If there is a healthy adult, hopefully it can make it. Just let nature take its course.” If anyone has questions or concerns, they may contact the Harrison County Conservation Board at 6472785 or the Iowa Department of Natural Resources at 515-2815918.

BOARD: Contracts, resignations FROM PAGE 1 between Logan-Magnolia and Missouri Valley Community Schools starting Aug. 15 and ending May 31, 2012, to share

media and counselor services between the districts on an as needed basis. Board members discussed possible sites for a storage facility to be constructed and the 1:1 lap

regulatory affairs and energy efficiency. “It is good for MidAmerican customers because it provides them with a convenient way to dispose of used appliances.” Through this program, MidAmerican electric customers may recycle up to two refrigerators, two freezers and two window air conditioning units, with a maximum of six appliances per address. Appliances must be 10 cubic feet or larger (no commercial sizes) and units must be emptied prior to pickup. “Since October 2009, MidAmerican Energy Company has worked with Iowa electric customers to recycle working refrigerators, freezers and window air conditioners,” said public relations manager, Tina Potthoff. “Since it’s start, more than 260 customers in southwest Iowa have taken advantage of the program.” According to Potthoff, refrigerators built prior to 1990 can use two or three times more energy than a new, high-efficiency model. A new Energy Star qualified refrigerator uses less than half as much energy as one made prior to 1993. According to the REC, in 2010 more than 1,720 appliances were recycled through the REC Pull-thePlug program. Aside from

energy savings, Iowa REC members kept more than 238,500 pounds of recyclable and/or hazardous material from entering landfills and ultimately soil and groundwater. During appliance pickup for REC customers, Environmental Services of Iowa will check to make sure the appliance is operable, load it and write a $25 rebate check. Three appliances per year may be recycled per residence in the REC program. Appliances to be picked up must be located curbside or be easy outside accessible for pickup. It must be located outside the home and be operable. ESI employees will not enter members’ homes to remove any appliances. By recycling old appliances and purchasing Energy Star appliances, customers of MidAmerican or REC can save from $70 to $120 more per year. Besides saving customers energy costs with new appliances, they also receive rebates in both programs offered. If you are interested in using one of these programs, customers of MidAmerican Energy can call 1-800-621-2757 or register at to schedule a pickup time and REC customers can call 712-647-2727 or 800-8225591 to schedule a pickup time.

DISASTER DECLARATION: County FROM PAGE 1 sufficient to warrant the inclusion of the Individual Assistance Program in this Major Disaster Declaration. In the meantime, area officials are hard at work continuing to fight the floodwaters. On June 29 the Iowa Department of Transportation closed U.S. Highway 30 between Missouri Valley and Blair, Neb., to install a floodcontrol barrier along the south side of the roadway. This was to last for a 48hour period. After it reopened, the IDOT

planed to work on a barrier wall on the north side of the roadway. According to Harrison County Emergency Management Director Larry Oliver, river gauges show an increase due to storms over the past couple of days with the Little Sioux River reported to be very high (on June 27 19.92-feet) from Cherokee down south. Oliver said most gauges have peaked and are now on a decline. The Iowa Department of Transportation is closely monitoring Interstate

29 north of Modale. This is a levee protected area. However, if a breach were to occur, it would be inundated with several feet of flood water. Also among roads being monitored is Iowa Highway 127 near Mondamin near milepost 0.8 and 1.5. The risk of flooding is lower because the road is protected somewhat by a high ridge IDOT officials said. For road condition information 24 hours a day visit or call 511 in Iowa or 800288-1047 for a recorded message on road closures.

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.

Don’t sweat the small stuff When my journey began at the Examiner nearly 30 years ago, I never would have thought I’d be sharing a cubicle with the sports department. I’ve worked in several different buildings and numerous offices, but I must say this spot has become my favorite. From my work area, I’m literally in the middle of everything. From listening to the police scanner to watching reporters and editors scurry about. I love the fast pace buzz that surrounds me. To add to my list of favorites during my workday, I have the pleasure of getting words of wisdom from retired, longtime sports writer Dick Puhr. When folks around this paper retire, their paperwork may be complete, but they can’t easily get rid of the passion for print. Newspaper people often say that ink is thicker than blood. Before covering a sporting event, Dick came by to gather his things to begin his retired hobby. He often comments on my column and asks about dad and on this particular day, I told him I felt like my column had turned gloomy, since all I talk about are my worries with dad. He suggested I write about my love life. I’m sure he probably meant my awesome, one-of-a-kind, can’t live without boyfriend I have the privilege of sharing my life with. Although he is the love of my life, I started thinking about how many wonderful things I am fortunate enough to love. I decided to refocus on my longtime motto that has kept me going through rough times and lately, I’ve neglected to engage in what always works. I call it “fake it” ‘till you make it. It’s not a new concept, in fact, anyone who has ever read one of those self-improvement, feel-good-about-yourself books, you’ll recognize the routine. If you need a pick me up or a positive attitude, save yourself the time of thumbing through pages of analyzing and re-analyzing and just “fake it” ‘till you make it.” Having so much on my mind, I had unconsciously dropped into a rut. Even though nothing has changed – the stress is still here, the worries, the decisions – I get up every morning and regardless of how I really feel, I force myself to be in a good mood and concentrate on all the things I love. Sure it’s a deception, since inwardly I may still be crying the blues and wallowing in my own pity party, but on the outside I’m happy. Eventually the positive attitude being faked, turns into a reality and everything will turn from cloudy to sunny again. I love the people in my life – my boyfriend, kids, family and many good friends, but sometimes you have to look past the big picture to appreciate the smaller things in life to fall in love with all over again. I love the smell of wildflowers, cut grass and onions cooking. I love hearing tree frogs, crickets and children laughing. I love writing this column. Fake it ‘till you make it’; and fall in love all over again.

It began in Omaha We listen to our radios from time to time and look for the distraction of music we like. As long as the tunes are acceptable, we keep listening. Such programming is by design of course, because radio stations need customers to support the prices they charge to advertisers. Competition with broadcast and other mediums is so tough, business analysts constantly work to provide a product listeners like. Today, most music stations use what is called contemporary hit radio or CHR, current hits, Top 40 or similar nomenclature. The system is popular in the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia and focuses on playing current popular music as determined by the top 40 music surveys. Several subcategories focus on rock, pop or urban music. FM began to dominate radio in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, and stations fragmented to play songs to serve niche groups. Radio and Records Magazine designated stations that still played top 40 or 50

songs as top 40 stations. The name remains, and few people know it began in Omaha. Todd Storz, a member of the Storz brewery family in Omaha, was the director of radio station KOWH AM. Like most radio stations, KOWH broadcast soap operas, novelty shows and quiz programs. Many programs were popular and Johnny Carson used his comedy show on WOW to propel himself to national fame. As television proved itself to be more than a fad, Carson knew his future was in the new medium. Radio stations faced extinction and Storz knew they had to change to compete in a new world. He noticed that local music hits if they were ever played, were worked in between the regular shows. Research showed some of these records sold better after they were played on the radio. KOWH began playing more music, and the ratings went up with record sales. Storz bought several radio stations and converted them to top 40 formats.

Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist He also purchased the powerful WBH in Kansas City that was audible across the Midwest and Great Plains. He christened it a Top 40 station and the ratings improved. This new format attracted the attention of others. Ruth Meyer, one of Storz’s employees at WBH, moved on as program director of New York City’s most popular station, WMCA and the new concept spread throughout the East. Gordon McLendon of Dallas, Texas, for example, refined the concept by turning his station into an advertising and listening package. People who played the records became known as disk jockeys and their between record talk turned them into local celebrities with their own fans. His station was one

of the most widely imitated stations in the nation and top 40 stations sprang up like weeds. The timing couldn’t have been better as hoards of baby boom teenagers adopted rock and roll stars as their heroes. Dick Clark accidentally discovered the gold in teenaged purses and wallets and built an empire that began as a top 40 television dance show. Now, a new digital satellite station of KMT Channel Three in Omaha is called Cool TV, and it also mirrors the radio style play lists. Radio has adapted and flourished, thanks in part to Mr. Storz, but no one has replaced the antics of disk jockeys like Kent Burkhart, Chuckie from Kentucky or Sandy Jackson.

News from the Extension Service

This is getting old...... And we have just started the soggy summer of ’11. Yes, like nearly everyone, I am growing tired of flood talk and flood work, but sadly, this past week we have seen the start of the feared levee and dike breaks that cause the river to encroach on more and more land. On Monday, ISU Extension Agronomist Joel DeJong and I traveled to Tekamah where we met with John Wilson, the Burt County Nebraska Extension Director to start planning what we might do to help agricultural interests once the waters start to recede. The river may be a powerful barrier separating Iowa and Nebraska, but the effects of the flooding are pretty much the same on both sides, so our goal is to work together. Obviously, there is a lot yet that could happen that we have no idea about, that affects the questions that will come.

For example: When will the water leave? Where has current flowed: What debris needs to be cleaned up? But our best task is to start planning now to marshal the powers of the information for when we need them later. Again, I know that it is way early, but I welcome and encourage any thoughts or questions you have or that you hear about relating to agricultural effects and recovery from the flood. As with all the other parts of the flood, rumors are easy to start and once established hard to dispatch. The best tool is to hear from you. Shifting to housing issues, one thing that you should do now is if you have house damage from the flooding please report it so that the truest current picture of the disaster can be assembled. That may well lead to additional disaster declaration requests.

California Junction and a flooded DeSoto Bend to the south.

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator The Presidential Disaster Declaration issued for the six Iowa counties on Monday was only to help with public infrastructure (so far). Data from any possible additional declaration to assist with individuals is still being gathered. If you have homes or businesses inundated by floodwaters or even if you have ground water that has entered the structures because of the lack of drainage, report it. You can call the Harrison County Emergency Management team, but another easy way is to call the Iowa

Concern Hotline at 800447-1985. In addition to all the other help they can provide, the Hotline staff is trained in asking the right questions to gather damage information. When Joel and I were in Nebraska, Scott Olson, who is on the Burt County Extension Council and is in business at Lee Valley, Inc., took us up in his plane to view the flooding. Of course, we took some pictures. I have included a couple of Harrison County here for what it is worth (thanks Scott). Happy Fourth of July everyone.

Lo-Ma sophomores attend HOBY program Logan-Magnolia sophomores, Kacie Hartwig and Cheyenne Jensen attended the Iowa Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Seminar June 10-12 at Central College in Pella. The HOBY Leadership Seminar was established in 1958 by actor Hugh O’Brien following his visit to Africa where he was inspired by a meeting with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. HOBY Leadership Seminars bring together a select group of high school sophomores to interact with groups of distinguished leaders in business, government, education and the professions to discuss present and future

own homes, schools and c o m m u n i t i e s . Ambassadors are challenged to discover new methods of leadership in their personal lives, in groups as well as society.” According to O’Brien, one of the things Schweitzer said to him was the most important thing in education was to teach young people to think for themselves. “From that inspiration, and with the support of others who believe in youth and the American dream, I started HOBY to seek out, recognize and develop outstanding leadership potential among our nation’s youth.”

Is Your Portfolio Like a Baseball Team? If you’re a baseball fan, you’re no doubt aware that the MLB All-Star Game is being played on July 12. But while you’ll probably appreciate the grace and skill of the players, you may not realize just how much a baseball team can teach you about other aspects of life — such as investing. Specifically, consider the following characteristics: Consistency — Baseball teams need to be consistent. They choose quality players and must have the patience and discipline to stick with those players during slumps. As an investor, you should choose quality investments and have the patience and discipline to stick with them over the long haul. Diversification — A baseball team doesn’t have just one type of player — it contains pitchers, catchers, infielders and outfielders. Your portfolio also needs to be diversified because if you own only a single type of investment, and a market downturn strikes that asset class particularly hard, your portfolio could take a big hit. Owning a diversified mix of stocks, bonds, government securities, certificates of deposit (CDs) and other investments can help

reduce the effect of market volatility on your holdings. Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself, can’t guarantee a profit or protect against loss. Unity — While a baseball team contains a diverse collection of players, they all strive toward a common goal. And the mix of investments in your portfolio needs to work together to help achieve the various goals you’ve established, such as a comfortable retirement, college for your children and a legacy for your family. To work toward your individual objectives, you will need to create an investment mix that’s based on your risk tolerance, time horizon, family situation and other factors. Flexibility — While every member of a professional baseball team is a good player, one might be better than another in a given situation. For instance, a faster runner might pinch-run for someone else. And as you move on in your “game” of life, you will need flexibility in making your investment decisions. As one example, when you near retirement, you may want to reduce your exposure to risk some-

what, so you might decide to replace some — but certainly not all — of your growthoriented vehicles with investments that can offer greater protection of your principal. Good management — Even the best group of baseball players needs a manager to guide them and make decisions during a ballgame. And to help you make investment choices during different times in your life, you might benefit from working with a financial professional — someone who knows your risk tolerance, investment preferences and long-term aspirations. You may never find yourself surrounded by the greatest ballplayers in the world — but remembering these traits can help keep your portfolio “in the game.” This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

Lo-Ma baseball record improves to 17-1 Judy Adair For the Herald-Observer The Logan-Magnolia baseball team improved its record to 17 wins and only one loss. Their one loss came in a non-conference game against Harlan, a Class 3A team. With only one week of conference games left, the Panthers are currently sitting in first place in the Western Valley Conference South. June 20 Lo-Ma 17 – IKM Manning 14 Traveling to Manning to play the Wolves, the Panthers found themselves involved in a game that netted 30 runs on 29 hits. Starting pitching Quin Mann gave up 12 runs on 11 hits while striking out seven batters. Nate Fender came in to pitch the last two innings giving up one run on three hits and striking out four. Not only did Mann and Fender combine their talents on the mound but they also merged their abilities at the plate. Each had two runs on three hits. Nolan Oviatt, Zach Powley, Paul Hutson and Brennan Azinger had two hits each while Brett Greenwood had one. June 23 Lo-Ma 16 – Boyer Valley 2 Playing on their home field, the Panthers faced the Boyer Valley Bulldogs in the first game of a double header. Starting pitcher Nate Fender pitched four innings allowing two runs on six hits. Closer Alex Skeen pitched the final inning allowing no run on only one hit. Evan Mikels smashed two home runs

over the left field fence going 3-for-4 at the plate. Mikels collected five RBI’s during the game. Powley had three hits and Levi Ettleman had two. Oviatt, Fender, Mann, Azinger and Grant Whisney had one hit each. June 23 Lo-Ma 8 – St. Albert 2 In the second game of the night, the Panthers faced St. Albert. Ettleman was the starting hurler for the Panthers. He had an outstanding pitching performance allowing two runs on four hits and striking out 12. Mikels did not let his bat cool off during the second game. In his first at bat, he hit his third homer of the night over the left field fence. This sparked a four run first inning for the Panthers. Not to be outdone in this game, Powley also had a homerun in the third inning to drive in all three runs that inning. On the night, Powley ended up with two hits and four RBI’s. Mann and Hutson each had two hits while Ettleman, Oviatt, Fender and Greenwood had one each. June 24 Lo-Ma 11 – Woodbine 0 The Panthers hosted the Tigers from Woodbine June 24. Combining for a no hitter, was starting pitcher Powley and relief pitchers Whisney and Greenwood. Powley pitched three innings facing 10 batters and striking out four. Whisney came in to pitch one inning facing three batters and striking out one. Greenwood faced three batters in the top of the fifth inning to clinch the win for

Clockwise from top, the team waits at home plate to congratulate Zach Powley on his home run in the St. Albert game; Powley makes the throw for an out from second base; Nolan Oviatt makes the throw from short stop for an out in the game with Woodbine.

Approval to implement emergency conservation program Harrison County Farm Service Agency has requested and been approved to implement the ECP program for farmers with flood damages. “Area farmers who experience extreme damage to their land from the flooding should report the damage to our FSA office as soon as they are apparent or once the water recedes,� said Pat

Warmbier, County Executive Director for the Harrison County FSA Office. “Although funds have not been received from the national office yet, we are hopeful money will be allocated to our county sometime this summer.� Farmers must sign the required application, identifying the damaged land on an aerial photograph and

complete a fact sheet. Sign up began June 22 and ends Aug. 20. If waters have not receded by the end date, the office will request an extension of the signup period. Producers with damaged land will need to sign the required forms and have the land inspected prior to starting any work to repair the damage, which will include technical assistance

to determine what is needed to rehabilitate the cropland. “Producers not completing the required forms and whose damage was not inspected prior to starting the repairs may be ineligible and cost share could be denied,� Warmbier said. “This is why contacting our office is so critical.� FSA may provide cost

share assistance to agricultural producers when it is too costly to rehabilitate the land without federal assistance. ECP program participants receive cost-share assistance of 75 percent of the cost to implement approved emergency conservation practices. This may include debris removal, shaping and releveling farmland, restor-

ing fences and restoring conservation structures and installations. Cost-share is not authorized for rehabilitation of stream banks, channels, levees and dikes under this program. Producers are encouraged to contact the Harrison County FSA office at 644-2040 for more information or online at

Missouri River flood victims need to report damages to hotline Congressman Steve King is encouraging all residents and businesses impacted by the flooding of the Missouri River to call the Iowa Concern Hotline

Callers to the Iowa Concern Hotline should be prepared to provide information and answers to the following questions: â&#x20AC;˘Name â&#x20AC;˘Current address and phone number â&#x20AC;˘Address of flood-affected home or business â&#x20AC;˘Is this a rental property? â&#x20AC;˘Is this a primary or vacation home? â&#x20AC;˘Is the business currently open or closed due to flooding? â&#x20AC;˘Have you lost your job because of flooding? â&#x20AC;˘Do you have flood insurance? â&#x20AC;˘How many floors are flooded, including the basement? â&#x20AC;˘How deep is the water on the topmost floor that is flooded? Flood damage to farm residences may be reported to the Iowa Concern Hotline also. Damage to other agricultural buildings, equipment and property should be reported to the local office of the Farm Service Agency.

When people lose their virtue they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
