Over the past few years, Harrison County residents have learned the importance of being prepared for emergencies. Besides the unprecedented floods of 2011, residents have been faced with flooding of Missouri Valley and Willow Park in 2007, the Little Sioux Boy Scout Ranch tornado in 2008, the March tornado in 2009

near Missouri Valley and blizzards and ice storms in 2010. September is National Preparedness month and is being used to encourage people to take some time to plan in the case of an emergency. “Disasters can happen during any season and at any time,” said Harrison County Emergency

“One thing we have learned from all of these events is to be prepared.” ~Larry Oliver, Director Harrison County Emergency Management Management Director Larry Oliver. “One thing we have learned from all of these events is to be prepared.”

“Harrison County is blessed with many people and agencies that prepare year round by participating in planning, training and

drills,” Oliver said. These agencies include fire and rescue departments, Alegent Health Community Memorial Hospital, Harrison County agencies of Home and Public Health, Sheriff’s Department, courthouse staff, Incident Management Team, E911 SEE BE PREPARED Page 2

Meet the C U R E C R U SA D E R S new Lo-Ma R E A DY F O R R AC E teachers

Set goal of 200 participants Mary Darling Editor Among the thousands wearing pink at the 2010 Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure,” was the Harrison County Cure Crusaders team that grew to a total of 179 members. This year the race will be held Oct. 2 and in a change of venue starts at the CenturyLink (former Qwest Center) in Omaha. The team, first started by Jim Makey of Logan, in 2007 had about 20 members. The next year that grew to 50, and in 2009 the name was changed to the Harrison County Cure Crusaders and encompassed anyone from Harrison County and beyond. Last year Patty Reisz headed up a group from Woodbine that joined the cause along with staff from Alegent Health Community

Memorial Hospital and others around the county. The event holds a special place for both Makey and Reisz, as they have both seen loved ones fight and win the battle with breast cancer. Makey’s wife Betty is a twotime survivor and Reisz’ mother is a six-year breast cancer survivor. “Being able to represent and help raise money and awareness for something that means a lot is important to me,” Reisz said. “My mom and aunt have both been affected and that’s something I will always have to think about. We have to raise awareness to get people to think about it and be prepared for it.” “Last year we had five or six survivors on the team,” Makey said. “Patty Reisz and I are co-captains of the team and hopefully we will hit the 200 mark this year and raise more money for breast can-

cer research.” “If everyone got one pledge of $10 we could raise, $2,000 or if everyone could raise $100 we could raise $20,000,” Reisz said. “Our goal this year is not only to have 200 plus members but to raise as much money as we can to help fight for the cure.” The team has T-shirts available through Shaw’s Screen Printing in Woodbine. They are pink camouflage that say “Tuff Enough to Wear Pink,” on the front and the team name, “Harrison County Cure Crusaders on the back. They are $11 and can be ordered by calling Joanna at 712-647-2534. Orders are due by Sept. 23.

CRUSADERS: Race for the Cure ARONIA: Festival Sept. 17, 18 FROM PAGE 1 donated $100 to the team. The Woodbine Main Street Chamber also ordered and sold pink Tshirts at the rodeo and they were sold out the first night. All proceeds were donated to the team. Registration for the event is $30 and can be done online at You click on “Komen Race for the Cure,” and then “Join an existing team.” Type in Harrison County Cure Crusaders in the team name box and click on the word “join” and

follow the instructions. According to Makey, due to the generosity of physicians in the Omaha area, there is no fee for survivors to register. The physicians pledged funds so survivors can enter free of charge. “It’s the only Komen race I know of that survivors don’t have to pay,” he said. Besides the 5K run/walk that begins at 8:00 a.m. that morning, there is also a one-mile walk at 8:15 a.m. You can join either. If you just can’t get yourself out of bed that early, you can

also join through the “Sleepwalker package” and there is also a “Kids for the Cure,” division for ages 3-12 for $15 for a team member. For more information you can contact Makey at 644-3511 or Reisz at 712647-3486. “Recruit your family and friends and walk or run with us this year,” Reisz said. “It’s addicting, once you do it, you will be back year after year. It’s an incredible feeling being there with over 20,000 people walking to help raise awareness for the Cure.”

SONDERLAND: Phys. Ed FROM PAGE 1 tion with a minor in coaching. Besides teaching physical education, he will also be coaching girls’ basketball and assisting with cross country. “I hope to start integrating my philosophy and terminology to the kids,” Sonderland said. “We look

to try and improve as the year goes along while gaining valuable experience.” According to Sonderland, he chose physical education as a major because he was active and wanted to stay that way. “I think it is important to provide students with the knowledge and understanding of maintaining a

healthy lifestyle,” he said. His goals for the year include introducing the importance of a healthy lifestyle to students. He expects his challenges to include learning all the new names and is looking forward to the new school year. “I enjoy being around kids and helping them succeed,” Sonderland said.

BE PREPARED: Time to plan FROM PAGE 1 Communications, the engineer’s department, Board of Supervisors, cities in the county, police departments, mayors, clerks and administrators. Oliver said there are three components to preparedness: a kit, a plan and information. He urged residents to make a basic emergency kit that includes food, water, a battery or hand crank radio, a flashlight with extra batteries, a first aid kit, a whistle to signal for help, a dust mask, personal sanitation towelettes with garbage bag, a wrench or pliers to turn off utilities, can opener, local maps, cell phone and charger and a battery-powered NOAA weather radio and portable radio. You may also need to include special items for infants, the elderly or disabled family members. “Many of these items you may already have scattered throughout

your home. Take the time to pull them together and place in one, predetermined location for easy access during an emergency,” Oliver said. A winter emergency kit in your vehicle should contain a shovel, windshield scraper and small broom, flashlight, battery powered radio, extra batteries, water, snack food, matches, extra hats, socks and mittens, a first aid kit, necessary mediations, blankets, tow chain or rope, road salt and sand, booster cables, emergency flares and fluorescent distress flag. The second major step is to make a family plan. “Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to plan in advance: How will you contact one another? How and where will you get back together? And what to do in different situations,” Oliver said. He also suggested posting emergency telephone numbers by phones, installing safety features

in your house such as smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, inspecting homes for potential hazards and correcting them. “Have your family learn basic safety measures such as CPR and first aid, use of fire extinguishers and how and when to turn off water, gas and electricity in your house,” Oliver said. “Teach your children how and when to call 9-1-1. Keep enough supplies in your home to meet your needs for at least three days.” “Being informed about the different types of emergencies that could happen in Harrison County including both natural and manmade disasters and the appropriate ways to respond to them will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take,” Oliver said. For more information about preparing an emergency kit or being prepared for an emergency you can contact Oliver at 644-2353.

FROM PAGE 1 addition to America’s homegrown superfruit, first cultivated right in Western Iowa. “What began as a simple farm field day has become an annual event attracting thousands of visitors,” Pittz said. “As always, this year’s harvest festival will highlight the aronia berry, the highest antioxidant berry grown in the United States, but also many Iowans’ talents and neighborly spirit.” Featured at this year’s festival will be more than 20 artisans from the Loess Hills; aronia berry cooking and smoothie samplings, speakers, live music, dietitians and health professionals, wine tastings, production based aronia and farm diversification presentations and gardening

with Aronia. There will also be aronia plants and products available as well as plenty of children’s activities on the hour every hour. They will feature “Farm Safety 4 Just Kids,” conservation and culinary activities and more. Visitors will also have the opportunity to enjoy a complete aronia berry barbecue themed cookout as well as a karaoke event dubbed by organizers as “Aronia Idol.” For information on participating in the country’s first Aronia Berry Recipe Challenge visit the Website a t Local restaurants will also get into the act and will serve aronia inspired dishes and volunteers will be parking cars in the Old Pea Patch, in true farm

valet style and shuttle folks by golf cart to the festival. While the event certainly revolves around all things aronia, Pittz added, “We have the unique ability to bring together a few thousand Iowans every year and celebrate what makes our Loess Hills’ community so unique. Whether it’s artisans, musicians, hunters or foodies, everyone has something to bring to the table.” The festival site can be reached from the U.S. Highway 30/Logan area by taking State Highway 127 to Magnolia, turn left onto L-23 (Laredo Avenue), turn right onto Kennedy Avenue. Signs will be posted. For a complete schedule of events and more information visit

COLLINS: Social Studies FROM PAGE 1 middle school teachers in LeMars. “I love teaching because it allows for creativity,” Collins said. “Each day brings something very different from the last. I enjoy working with people, especially kids.” Collins said she chose her major in part due to her professors. “I had two of the bet history professors one could ask for in college,” she said. “Everything taught made

me see relevance between the past and present. Social studies is important for students because by becoming familiar with topics from history and our government, they will hopefully understand the importance of becoming exceptional citizens within their community.” According to Collins, her, goals for the year include helping her students form habits that will help them succeed outside of the classroom. “Becoming more respon-

sible, independent and hardworking,” she said. “A personal goal is to create a good base for my career by learning all I can from the great teachers that are already at Lo-Ma.” Collins said her favorite thing about teaching is creating relationships with student and faculty members. “Everyone at Lo-Ma is extremely helpful and nice,” she said. “I look forward to waking up and being with this community every day.”

Down Home By Sandy Turner Sandy Turner writes a weekly column “Down Home” which is published in several newspapers in the Midwest. She puts a humorous spin on issues that revolve around families and every day life, drawing from her own experiences.

I’ve been cheating on big red I don’t hide the fact that one of my favorite things to do is mow. With nearly eight acres of grass, it’s not unusual to find me on the tractor for hours at a time. For me, mowing is like a day at the spa. Big Red, my ’54 Ford tractor has never failed me. It may take a little prompting to get him started, but he always comes through. Held together with bungee cords, the rattling sounds lull me into a zombie-type of state with my only worry being to dodge an occasional dragonfly or fence line. Whenever something breaks, my boyfriend always gets it repaired, knowing how much the tractor means to me. When the tractor’s out of commission, I have to mow with his fancy-dancy zero turn mower, and although I’ll admit I can get the job done faster, it doesn’t compare to being on my tractor. It took me a couple of years to get comfortable mowing the pond dam, with slopes that can be a little tricky. As the tractor leans one way, I’ll lean the other, with the thought in the back of my mind that if it tips, I’ll be that much closer to the ground. Much of the acreage has bumps, berms and valleys and I’ve become pretty good at maneuvering the tractor with just an occasional mishap here and there without causing too much damage. When the tractor’s hydraulic system went down and it was time to mow, our next door neighbor (next door, as in they are barely within shouting distance) offered to let me try their fancy dancy mower, which not only mows at the speed of light, but also would mow the slopes of the pond dam with ease. I moaned and groaned but eventually accepted his offer while he and my boyfriend went to work on fixing Big Red. Deciding to try it out on the 90-degree slopes first, I looked up to find both of them had come down to watch. I can’t blame them really, as it’s no secret I run into things. Not having to lean on the side or worry I’d tip over made me think twice about Big Red. I felt like I was cheating on him as I sped through the acreage, throwing grass while taking on the berms and slopes like nobody’s business. Eventually, I had to give back the grass-eating machine and the tractor was back on the job, although it seemed as though I was at a turtle crawl after my rendezvous with the new guy with sharp blades. My boyfriend suggested we buy one of these mowers and sell the tractor. I don’t know what to think about that – although I did have a compromise. I suggested we park the tractor, take out the guts, and make it a huge flower pot, that way I could still enjoy it’s character. Apparently that’s not an option. Until Big Red finds a new home, I’m going to spend every grass cutting minute with him, so he won’t know I’m kinda excited at the possibility of speeding things up a bit with the new kid on the block.

Radio domestic goddess Many women worked outside of the home during the early 20th Century, but millions of Midwestern small town and farm wives worked at home. Their work was difficult, denied as they were some of the conveniences of modern life. Their husbands worked in town or on the farm and saw other people almost daily. Farmers often worked together and had to run errands in town. Their wives felt more isolated because their social connections occurred less frequently. The development of the radio gave them a social outlet. Fledgling radio stations discovered programs devoted to women were revenue enhancers. Leanna Field Driftmier was born in 1886, long before radio shows were known, and she could not have imagined her future destiny. Leanna and her seven siblings grew up on a farm near Shenandoah and their parents emphasized education and self-improvement. Several of her siblings’ accomplishments overshadowed hers. Her sister, Jessie Field Shambaugh, was a founder of the 4-H movement. Her brother, Henry Field, was a seed company

and radio entrepreneur. If Leanna felt any jealousy, she didn’t show it. After graduation from high school, she taught school in Essex, Iowa. She later moved to California to care for aging relatives and while there Leanna attended Los Angeles State Normal College. She taught in San Bernadino two years after she graduated. Leanna met widower Martin Driftmier during one of her rare visits home. They married in 1913 and lived in Shenandoah. Her brother Henry believed radio would become a major business, and he built a radio station. Like other radio broadcasters, Henry learned the value of programs of interest to women. His sister Helen, hosted “The Mother’s Hour” program and became a minor celebrity. Leanna joined the show in 1924. She soon became as popular as her sister. Helen left the show and Leanna renamed the show Kitchen Klatter. She broadcast the program from her home as her four young children sat in the corner. Sometimes she included them in the show, much to the delight of her listeners. Broadcasting from

Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist

home became a trend of other radio makers of the time as they followed her example. Driftmier later joined rival KMA and broadened her show to include gardening, homemaking and child raising tips. She became so popular her show was syndicated in Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. Leanna spoke so often of her family that fans almost believed they knew them and felt sorrow or joy at their hardships and good times. So many listeners wrote that Leanna wrote a newsletter to respond to their questions and comments. The publication soon expanded and took the name of Kitchen Klatter magazine. Driftmeyer also wrote and published cookbooks and books on sewing. She then earned

more money when she endorsed cleaning products, spices and other products made in Shenandoah. Her fame spread and in 1954, she was named Mother of the Year. Leanna’s daughter, Lucile Driftmier Verness, took over the show in 1959 and continued the publication until about 1980. However, the culture and demographics changed and fewer listeners had the time or inclination to listen to homemaker shows. The genre faded away as the Kitchen Klatter did. The memory may be gone, but fans of a certain age still remember the radio highlights of each day, when Leanna Driftmier shared her recipes and her life like an old friend. Truly, she was a radio domestic goddess.

News from the Extension Service

Flooded Soil Syndrom in 2012 Field areas along the Missouri River that have been inundated for two to three months this summer are finally uncovered and drying. The Missouri River flooding in 2011 is really unprecedented for crop producers; even the next best comparison flood events (1993 across the Midwest, 2008 in Eastern Iowa, Mississippi Valley floods and Red River of the North flooding, etc.) pale in comparison to the flood duration we have had. Although the receding water brings with it relief, we are now led to the next step of rehabilitating damaged croplands. One thing certain is every field and often parts of every field will need to be dealt with differently, depending on its condition. Here are a couple of thoughts about the effect of flooding on the land: Compaction – The floodwater actually does little soil compaction, outside of the top inch or so where water initially flowed. Under that the pore space basically filled with water and that served as a foundation for the water column above, limiting compaction. Once the soil dewaters, air (with oxygen) will enter, as long

as you don’t tramp over it while it is still wet this fall. The take home point is to stay off as much as possible this fall and let nature work. Sour soil – The funky smell of the soil is understandable. As water stood for long times, all the micro life in the soil sucked up oxygen until there was no more available. Then, another group of microbes, the anaerobes, took over. These are the critters that can live without oxygen, instead using sulfur, nitrogen, etc. So instead of giving off carbon dioxide or water, they produce hydrogen sulfide and other compounds with funky smells. Let the soil dewater, and oxygen reenters and allows the aerobes (oxygen users) repopulate and things come back to normal. There is no way to know how crops might respond next year. But research and observations with other flood events (or other fallow land situations) have shown the potential for significant early season growth problems with the next year’s crops. Crop nutrition, especially concerning phosphorus, is a concern. A special group of aero-

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator

bic fungi called arbuscular mycorrhizae live on plant roots and help plants take up phosphorus from the soil. The flood likely wiped most of them out, and without them, crops could find it tough to access phosphorus until they repopulate. And even without the microbial issue, flooded, de-oxygenated soil has led to chemical changes in the soil that also limits phosphorus uptake. Establishing growing plant roots in the soil help alleviate both issues with time. Therefore, let weeds grow this fall! This is one time in 60 years you can actually say that foxtail, pigweed, etc. is your friend! If you can do it, seeding a cover crop is also a thought as long as you can get it established before winter. Winter rye, winter wheat, etc. are reasonable options. And you

aren’t taking that crop to harvest, so even light seeding can work for you. So for this fall, try to stay off wet, flooded ground, and if you must drive on it for debris removal or sediment removal or channel scar repair, wait as long as practicable, and limit traffic. Soil testing will be important, but again, try to wait until after some aeration has occurred to get a better picture of soil nutrient status, (at least until after frost). Waiting to soil test until spring would be best, but I know that isn’t always possible. Next week I will add a few thoughts about next year’s cropping plans.

Awarded top poster DAR marks Constitution in conservation contest Week Sept. 17-23 Sept. 17 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week, the commemoration of America’s most important document. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1955, the Daughters petitioned Congress to set aside Sept. 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. It was adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into law Aug. 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The goals of the celebration are to: •Emphasize citizens’ responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving it for posterity. •Informing the people that the Constitution is the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation of our way of life.

•Encouraging the study of the historical events that led to the farming of the Constitution in September 1787. Known as the largest women’s patriotic organization in the world, DAR has over 165,000 members with approximately 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and 11 foreign countries. The Council Bluffs chapter includes women from both Harrison and Pottawattamie Counties from the towns of Mondamin, Woodbine, Logan, Missouri Valley, Neola, Onawa, Atlantic, Macedonia, Griswold, Pella and Council Bluffs. DAR meetings are held the third Saturday of the month except in December, when it is held the second Saturday of the month. For information on the local DAR chapter, contact Mary Foutch, membership chairman at

Community Bank marks 60 years of membership The Independent Community Bankers of America congratulates Community Bank of Dunlap for reaching 60 years as an ICBA member. “ICBA is fortunate to have Community Bank as a member of the association for 60 year,” said Camden Fine, ICBA president and CEO. “Community banks such as Community Bank are relationship bankers that are passionately committed to serving the needs of their local customers and communities. It’s community banks like Community Bank that

drive economic stability and prosperity on Main Street and make communities a better place to work and live.” Richard Randall was a founding board member and past vice president of the Community Bankers of Iowa, a past treasurer for the Iowa Bankers Association and served as a member relations consultant with the American Bankers Association. “I am just finishing a two year term on the board of directors of the Iowa Bankers Association,” Randall said.

May 4, 179 fifth and sixth grade student from Logan-Magnolia, West Harrison, Missouri Valley and Woodbine participated in the annual Harrison County Soil and Water Conservation District poster contest. The theme this year was, “Forests for People.” Posters were judged on the entry’s conservation message, visual effectiveness, originality and universal appeal. First place went to Ethan Walski from LoganMagnolia. Ethan’s poster was then sent onto the Conservation Districts of Iowa Region 5 for the regional level judging. CDI Region 5 is Adair, Audubon, Carroll, Cass, Crawford, Pottawattamie, Guthrie, Harrison and Shelby Counties. Ethan’s poster was chosen as the

college education. Pay off your mortgage — If you have sufficient life insurance, the death benefit can pay off your mortgage, so your family wouldn’t have to move. Help pay for your spouse’s retirement — Your spouse might be counting on sharing some of the money you eventually withdraw from your retirement plans — such as your 401(k) and IRA — to help with his or her own retirement. If you were to die early, your spouse, as beneficiary, would receive the existing account balances in these plans, but your future contributions would, of course, die with you. Help pay for your retirement — You don’t even have to die to reap some benefits from your life insurance. If you’ve purchased some form of permanent insurance, such as whole life or universal life, you have the opportunity to build a cash balance. And through policy loans or withdrawals, you can tap into this cash to help you pay some of your expenses during retirement. Help you leave the legacy you desire — Life insurance can be an important part of your estate plans. To use life insurance properly for estate planning, consult with your legal advisor. Of course, one big question that you may ask is this:

Be Aware of Key Benefits of Life Insurance You may be unaware of it, but September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. And while a whole month may seem like a long time to focus on life insurance, it’s actually a good opportunity for you to realize the important role that life insurance can play in your life. Unfortunately, many people don’t have sufficient insurance. A recent report by LIMRA, a research and consulting group, shows the following: Individual life insurance ownership among U.S. households has reached a 50-year low. Three out of every 10 households (about 35 million households) currently have no life insurance — an increase of 11 million households since 2004. These figures help explain why the nonprofit LIFE Foundation coordinates Life Insurance Awareness Month each September. Simply put, many people don’t realize how many ways that life insurance can help them and their families. To be specific, life insurance can: Educate your children — If you were to die prematurely, your life insurance policy can pay, in whole or in part, your children’s college education. And if you live a normal life span, life insurance can help to pay for your grandchildren’s

How much life insurance do I need? You’ve probably seen those estimates that say you should have insurance that’s worth a certain number of years times your annual income. While this might not be a bad estimate, it’s not a hard-and-fast rule for every single individual. The amount of insurance you need will depend on a variety of factors: your age, income, size of family, value of home, employment situation and so on. Your financial advisor can help you determine the level of insurance that’s appropriate for your needs. Now that you’ve seen how life insurance may help you over the years, and you’ve got a sense of how to determine the amount of coverage you need, you can appreciate the message behind Life Insurance Awareness Month — so take it to heart and make sure you’ve got the proper insurance plan in place. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

National FCCLA STAR event competition

Joeona Healey n July, Joeona Healey, Lo-Ma FCCLA member, participated in the STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) at the 2011 Family, Career

and Community Leaders of America National Leadership Conference held in Anaheim, Calif. Healey earned a Gold medal in Career Investigation, one of the 28 national STAR events available to FCCLA students. Career Investigation recognizes participants for their ability to perform selfassessments, research and explore a career, set career goals, create a plan for achieving goals and describe the relationship of Family and Consumer Sciences coursework to the selected career. In order to compete at the national level, Healey earned the top gold ratings at the district

and state competitions. Only two students are selected from this category from each state. More than 6,300 members, advisers, alumni and guests from across the nation attended the meeting. Approximately 3,500 students advanced from local, regional and state levels of STAR Events to the national meeting. FCCLA STAR Events are based on the belief that every student is a winner. Competition, evaluation and recognition all stress cooperation as the basis of success. Both youth and adults work together to manage the events and serve as evaluators of the

participants. Throughout the year, FCCLA members tackle issues such as teen violence prevention, traffic safety, family issues, career exploration and more. FCCLA programs and competitions enrich student learning, improve self-esteem and serve the community. FCCLA: The Ultimate Leadership Experience is the only career and technical in-school student organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers and communities.

There are thousands of multi-sport athletes in Iowa each year. The best reach the allstate level in a sport or two. Very few are among the elite in three, especially with the way some coaches today push specialization. Dominating four sports is almost unheard of. That’s why Levi Ettleman is unique. His senior year at Logan-Magnolia was truly remarkable. Ettleman was a first-team all-state selection in three team sports and nearly won an individual state championship in another. “All of our seasons were awesome,” he said. “You couldn’t ask for anything more.” The World-Herald’s Western Iowa Male Athlete of the Year for the 2010-11 academic year, Ettleman’s combination of speed, power and skill is rare. It allowed the 6-foot4, 235-pounder to become a standout performer in all his endeavors. “He’s an incredible athlete,” Lo-Ma football coach Matt Straight said. “To be the size he is with the weight he carries and still be able to move around like he does is a freakish thing.” Displaying incredible versatility for an athlete his size, Ettleman earned first-team all-state honors in football, basketball and

baseball while the Panthers excelled in each sport. In track, he competed in the high jump and throwing events while also running on some of LoMa’s sprint relays. He finished second in the Class 2-A shot put at state. On the gridiron, he helped the Panthers reach the I-A quarterfinals. Ettleman had 12 touchdowns receptions as a sure-handed tight end while becoming what Straight called “one of the best blockers I’ve ever had.” On defense, he tallied 41 total tackles and three interceptions for a team that finished 10-2. Ettleman had a scholarship offer from Northern Iowa for football but turned it down to play basketball, his favorite sport, at Northwestern College in Orange City. He led LoMa to its first substate appearance in 24 years, averaging 20.4 points, 13.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. “He’s very fluid,” former Panther basketball coach Steve Nixon said. “He moves very well for a big guy, and that really helps him. He’s smooth, in addition to being able to overpower people.” Before leaving for college this summer, Ettleman helped Lo-Ma reach the No. 1 ranking in 2-A baseball during the regular season. The outfielder-pitcher hit .351 with 35 RBI’s while posting a 6-1 record and 1.09 ERA for a 22-4 team that reached the district final. “He can pitch, he can hit, he stole a lot of bases and he covers a lot of ground in the outfield,” Panther baseball coach Will Azinger said. “That’s going to be hard to replace.” Azinger has two sons, one older and one younger than Ettleman. He’s spent a lot of time with the Lo-

Ettleman Ma standout and said, “We love him like a son at our house.” Nixon said Ettleman, whom he called a “gym rat in all sports,” worked hard during practices though he was rarely pushed to get better. He became a role model for younger players. “He’s a great athlete, but he’s even a better person,” Nixon said. “He’s such a good kid.” Nixon believes that Ettleman’s best days as an athlete are still to come. At Northwestern, he’ll be devoting his time exclusively to one sport for the first time. Straight, said that’s a scary thought. “Levi’s ceiling is so high,” he said. “He can be as good as he wants to be.” Ettleman credited his coaches and parents for pushing him to be his best. He said he was born with physical ability but has worked to become an athlete who thrives in a team setting. “I just love to compete and be with my teammates,” he said. “I like making people better. And if I’m going to do that, I need to play my best and not take a night off.” “God has definitely blessed me, there’s no doubt about that.”

Panther football team adds two more victories Nancy Voggesser For the Herald-Observer The Logan-Magnolia Panthers were faced with two back-to-back road games, and arose to the challenge. Against the Clarinda Cardinals on Sept. 2, they reigned victorious on a score of 35-13; on Sept. 9 in Audubon, the Panthers continued their winning streak on a score of 44-6. The road games started in Clarinda on a warm and humid late summer evening. Although the Cardinals started the game on offense, the Panthers were the first to get in the endzone. Just four minutes into the game, following strong play by Quin Mann, Paul Hutson and Caden McDonald, McDonald tore across the endzone on a 1yard carry. Nate Fender’s point after attempt was good, to start the scoring off for the Panthers at 7-0. The Panther defense came out strong against the Cardinal run game. Logan Melby, Hutson and McDonald were responsible for back-to-back tackles for loss. Although the Cardinals ended up enjoying a long run play, the Panther defense was too stingy to allow them to score. The Panthers controlled the game clock in the second quarter, orchestrating an almost six minute drive into the endzone. Fender and his backs kept moving the ball on the ground, which culminated in a 1yard run by Hutson with 6:32 left in the first half. The Panthers attempted a two-point conversion, which failed. The Panthers weren’t done scoring for the half, h o w e v e r. M c D o n a l d , Hutson and Dominic

Snyder kept the next drive running and, with 2:07 left in the first half, McDonald scored for the second time on the night on a 3-yard run. Fender’s kick ended scoring for the first half at Panthers 20, Cardinals 0. The Panthers came out of the halftime ready to score again. Keeping the ball on the ground, McDonald, Hutson and Snyder each earned first down carries. With 9:31 left in the third quarter, Hutson ran the ball eight yards into the endzone. Fender’s kick brought the score to 27-0. Defensively, the Panther defense kept the intensity going. Tackles by Brian Zephier, Grant Whisney, Snyder, Chris Bridgeford, Eric Brosnahan, Nick Knudsen and Jordan Muxfeldt kept the Cardinals from making much of a gain either on the ground or in the air. With 1:02 left in the third quarter, the Panthers finally met the 35 point mark with an 11-yard run by Snyder into the endzone. Hutson’s conversion ensured the clock would run for the foreseeable future. The Cardinals didn’t lay down, however, as they found the opportunity to score twice in the fourth quarter. With 7:56 left in the game, Tyler Stueve stopped the clock on a 15yard run. Wilson’s kick was good to move the score to 35-7. Two minutes later, the Cardinals scored again on a Nathan Jones 9-yard run. Wilson’s kick was blocked to end the scoring for the night at 35-13. One week later, the Panthers found themselves back in the buses on the way to meet the Audubon Wheelers. The Panthers started the scoring early, scoring a lofty 28 points in the first quarter of the game.

Just three minutes into play, the LoMa offense powered the ball down field. Caden McDonald continued his scoring streak with a 1-yard carry. Fender’s point after started scoring at 7-0. Two minutes later, the Panthers got a rare passing touchdown. Nate Fender connected with McDonald on a 13-yard pass, followed by another point after to make the score 14-0. The Lo-Ma defense was again able to keep the Wheelers first-down-free with hardnosed play by Logan Melby, Eric Brosnahan and Paul Hutson. The Panthers’ next drive featured runs by Fender, Dominic Snyder, McDonald and Hutson. To end the drive, Snyder got the call with 3:22 left in the quarter for a one yard carry into the endzone followed by Fender’s kick. The Panther defense took the next opportunity to score. With just 16 seconds left in the quarter, Brennan Azinger recovered a Wheeler fumble and ran the ball uncontested for 30 yards to score. Fender’s kick ended the first quarter scoring. The Wheelers couldn’t shake the Panther defense in the second quarter as well. Pass protection by Quin Mann, as well as tackles by Logan Melby, Chris Bridgeford and Dominic Snyder kept the ball firmly in the Panther control. Fender and his receivers opened up the passing game with first down passes to Grant Whisney and Quin Mann. With 4:21 left in the first half, Snyder got his first score of the night on a 3yard carry. Fender’s kick went wide right. Looking for that running clock in the second half, and a chance to get junior varsity and freshman players

Photo: Angela Winther some experience, Caden McDonald scampered 10 yards into the endzone with just 1:02 left in the half. Fender’s kick was good to make the score Lo-Ma, 41, Audubon, 0. The second half was firmly in the Panthers’ control. Jacob Stueve, Nick Knudsen, Drake Cohrs,

Zack Powley, James Branstetter, Colton Fisher, Cole Davis and Justin Yost got some tremendous experience moving the ball and defending their goal. With 8:25 left in the third quarter, the junior varsity put Nate Fender within field goal position; Fender nailed the 26-yard goal to end the

Panther scoring for the game at 44. Audubon would get one score in the game. With 2:10 left in the third quarter, Kaz Cozad completed a good drive with a 3-yard touchdown. The conversion was no good, which ended scoring in the game at Lo-Ma, 44, Audubon, 6.

The Tigers took game one 23-25. In game two, the two teams would continue the see saw battle. Woodbine would get the upper hand in the second game winning by a score of 22-25. Being down two games the Lady Panthers would not give up. Continuing to play hard and getting key defensive plays the Lady Panthers would come out on top in the third game 25-22. In the fourth game the Tigers would not let the loss bring them down. They would pull together and come out on top 14-25, handing Lo-Ma their third loss of the season. Shelby Marquardt would lead the Panthers with 12 kills, 11 blocks and a perfect serving percentage going 9 for 9. Courtney Oviatt would lead the team in digs with eight. Oviatt would also have four kills. Emily Dickinson had three kills and seven digs for the Panthers and Maysen Jones had four kills and four digs on the night. After having a week off, the Lady Panthers would travel to Charter Oak to play the Bobcats on Sept. 8. LoMa would come to Charter

On Sept. 6 the Logan cross country team traveled to Treynor for the Cardinal Invitational held at the Treynor golf course. The day started with junior high runners taking the course. Eighth grader Justin Thomas came across first for the team in sixth place with a time of 12:18. Not far behind was Andrew Walski at 13:32 with Victoria Johnson and Shance McGrew right behind with times of 13:43 and 13:50 respectively. Gage Killpack came in with a time of 14:23 and Taylor Nelson in 15:41. Devin Holcomb in at 15:49 and Brianna Darnell rounding out the team with a time of 18:01. All of the varsity girls ran a solid race in Treynor. Coming in just shy of earning a medal was Hayley Whisney in 21st with a

time of 19:05 and Kendra Holcomb right behind in 23rd with a time of 19:14. Jacque Dewitt ran an impressive 21:01 giving her a place of 44th and rounding out the girls was Marissa Doiel with a time of 24:50 in 56th place, knocking four minutes off her previous race time. Varsity boys closed out the day with 88 total runners. Ellis Johnson ran an impressive race with a time of 18:38 giving him a medal in 16th place. Coming in not far behind was Wyatt Schulz in 37th, Grady Killpack in 40th and Braden Rosengren in 41st, Brett Rosengren in 43rd and Tommy Peterson in 48th. Ridge Meeker came in with a time of 22:21 giving him a 65th place finish and Owen Pitt finished 73rd with a time of 23:46.

In game one, the Lady Panthers struggled but finally found their rhythm and defeated the Lady Cats 2520. With renewed confidence LoMa took the court ready for game two. Good passing to the front made it possible for Jocelyn Camenzind to set her hitters up for the kills. The Lady Panthers took game two 2512. In game three LoMa continued to control the

pace of the match. With consistent play the Lady Panthers came out on top 25-15. Having an outstanding night was Maysen Jones. Jones had nine kills, six digs and would lead the way in points served with 19. Shelby Marquardt had 14 kills and eight digs. “Tonight we played well together and all our hard work paid off,” Head Coach Jacob Hedger said. “It’s nice to get that first win under our belt.”
