Herald-Observer SEPTEMBER 21, 2011




According to Harrison County Public Health Administrator Brent Saron, the Iowa Department of Public Health has confirmed a case of West Nile virus in an older adult (61 to 80 years of age) Harrison County woman. This comes on the heels of the announcement of a confirmed case in Pottawattamie County. Public Health officials continue to investigate several potential West Nile virus cases in Western Iowa. “Although cooler temperatures have decreased the mosquito population, it is clear Harrison County residents should continue to protect themselves against mosquito bites,” said BJ Abrams, Harrison County Public Health Nurse. “The months of standing water resulting from the Missouri River flooding has provided an ideal breeding place for mosquitoes. In addition, it’s not unusual to see West Nile virus activity into the late fall.” The most effective way to prevent West Nile virus is to stop mosquitoes from breeding and from biting. Prevention measures include: •Use of insect repellant whenever outdoors, especially during biting times from dusk to dawn. Use repellant with DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus. •Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, shoes and socks whenever possible outdoors. •Eliminate mosquitobreeding sites by removing sources of standing water in outdoor areas whenever possible. For example turning over or removing items where water can collect, such as ceramic pots, toys, buckets, tires, wading pools and tarps containing firewood and boats. For more information about West Nile visit r/wnv survellance.asp or call Harrison County Public Health at 644-2220.

KEY CLUB: Stresses volunteerism FROM PAGE 1 the school principal, and to promote the adoption and application of higher standards in scholarship, sportsmanship and social contacts. In 1994, the club hosted a punt, pass and kick contest and worked at many concession stands to raise money for the organization. Member Barbara Gambs was also named Governor for the Nebraska-Iowa District that year. Officers that year were, president, Melanie Anderson; vice-

president, Stephanie Emswiler; treasurer, Chris Sherer and secretary, Michelle Fliehe. Scheuring, the present school sponsor of the organization, said she had about 35 members last year. “Key Club is for any ninth through 12th grade student,” she said. Plans for the coming year include participation in “Trick or Treat” for UNICEF, making cookies for the Iowa Cookie Crumbs, helping the booster club sell cookies at home basketball games, making chili for the Kiwanis

Chili Cook-Off, decorating a Christmas tree for the city park, ringing the bell for the Salvation Army and helping with the Teacher Support Organization carnival. “There may be other opportunities as the year goes on,” Scheuring said. “Key Club is a great opportunity for kids to get involved in our community,” she said. “I have some great kids who are willing to help out whenever possible. We are always looking for volunteer opportunities and for kids who want to volunteer.”

HOMECOMING: LO-MA FROM PAGE 1 Panther pride by decorating the commons area of the school building. Adding to the excitement for 2011 will be an action-packed Thursday on the football field. On Thur., Sept. 22, a Junior After Prom fundraising supper will begin at 5:30 p.m. At 6:30 p.m. a Powder Buff volleyball game is slated to be followed by a Powder Puff football game at 7:45 p.m. The powder buff volleyball game consists of eight teams including two teams from each the freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior classes. Each team was allowed to select their own teams and will be coached by their choice of current Lo-Ma volleyball players. The powder puff football team will be freshman and seniors versus sophomore and juniors and, same as the power buff

volleyball, will be coached by a Lo-Ma football player from each of their respective grades. A bonfire will conclude Thursday’s festivities beginning at 8:45 p.m., also on the football field. All of Thursday’s events are free to the public. In the event of rain, the events possible will be held inside the school. On Fri., Sept. 23, the Logan-Magnolia 2011 homecoming king and queen candidates, plus their escorts, will be front and center. The 2011 escorts include Parker Bolte, son of Gary and brenda Bolte, Grady Killpack, son of Kevin and Lynn Killpack and Daniel Norton, son of Beth Norton and Eric Norton. The queen will be crowned during halftime of the football game. Candidates this year include Shelby Marquardt, daughter of Kelly Marquardt and Dan

ELECTION: School board FROM PAGE 1 of the votes, tallying 204 at the close of the polls with incumbent Gochenour following with 193 and incumbent Cohrs with 187. Shannon Jones, who was also rallying for a seat, finished with 118 votes. Also on the poll for LoMa was a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy, also known as PPEL. The ballot item would have increased the property tax levy up to $1.34 per $1,000 of the assessed value for the next 10 years. The hope was to use the funds for improvements and repairs at the school such as purchasing laptops. However, citizen’s voices were heard and the measure was voted down 201-95. Woodbine Five candidates were vying for three available seats in Woodbine, although four were named to the board. Joanna Shaw had two years left on her term, though no one filed to fill that spot. Due to write-in votes, Karen Lantz, who was also running for one of the three available seats, was designated to complete Shaw’s two year term with seven write-in votes. Lantz had previously filled the gap created by Shaw’s resignation for approximately two months at the end of the 2010-2011 school year.

Also winning seats on the board include newcomer, Beth A. Fouts, who tallied the highest number of the 576 votes with 183, incumbent Todd Heistand receiving 163 votes and 2010-11 board president Amy Sherer will be back on the board after earning 118 votes. Norma Coret, the fifth person vying for a seat, received 21 votes and there were five write-ins. Lantz, Fouts, Heistand and Sherer will join Mike Staben to comprise the board of five. Missouri Valley In Missouri Valley, Brenda Dooley, Kelley Ruffcorn and Michele Wilson were running unopposed. Only 162 total votes were cast, with Dooley receiving 57, Ruffcorn, 52, and Wilson, 48. Dan Zaiser and Roy Haynes round out the board. West Harrison In West Harrison Community School, District 2, Brent Olson was the lone opponent on the ballot and received 88 out of 96 votes. In District 5, no names appeared on the ballot, but three write-ins received 66 votes, 43 of which placed Mary Cumming on the school board. Jason Sherer received 13 write-ins and 10 more of the votes were scattered. One board member is voted on for each district, but Districts 1, 3 and 4 were not up for reelection Sept. 13.

Olson and Cumming, who will replace Sherer who opted not run for reelection, will be joining Dave Baxter, Candy Forbes and Tammy Neill. Boyer Valley In Boyer Valley four seats were available, though only three candidates filed election documents, according to board secretary Sharon Lee. The school system has two districts, split between Harrison and Monona counties and Crawford and Shelby counties, with three seats per district. They have one at-large seat. Board vice president Steve Puck and fellow incumbent Paul Klein ran unopposed in district two, while newcomer Pat Putnum will run unopposed in district one. Putnum received 127 votes in District 1 while in District 2 Klein received 123 and Puck received 114. District one board member Julie Wood decided against running after serving one term, Lee said. Kelly Garret in District 1 received 90 total write-in votes and will be offered the remaining open seat, but has to accept the position before it’s official. If she declines, the board may appoint someone else. Klein, Putnum and Puck will be joining Mark McAllister, Ken Dunham and Randy Mitchell on the board.

Marquardt, Taylor Olsen, daughter of Randy and Pam Olsen, and Isabelle Winchell, daughter of Denise Winchel. The king candidates, Nate Fender, son of Kevin and Mary Fender, Quin Mann, son of Kevin and Kim Mann, and Dominic Snyder, son of Steve and Suni Snyder, will have to wait until the homecoming dance begins to see who will wear the crown. The king candidate will be crowned at approximately 10 p.m. at the dance. Complete Music from Omaha, Neb. will be providing music for the 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. dance at the school.

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.

Does anybody know what day it is? I finished off the last of the graham crackers and was throwing the empty box away, when it hit me. This wave of sadness swept over me as I realized there’s no need to collect boxes for dad any longer to cut up with his scissors. As I learn more about dementia, I understand his need for repetitious daily tasks, which seems to help him calm down. At one point, I nicknamed him Edward Scissorhands, as he loved to sit and cut trash into small square pieces. He claimed it was for the trash man, because he said they would charge more if the trash bag was bulky. I can’t take the credit for discovering dad’s obsession with cutting up trash, although the signs were there. Over the course of several months, he had scoured the house looking for scissors, and every day there would be another pair lined up on the table. At one point, there were 15 pairs of scissors in every size and shape imaginable. He even found a pair of mom’s pinking shears, but it took one box for him to figure out they were too hard to use, even though the squares he cut with the shears looked a lot prettier. He doesn’t get to have scissors in the nursing home, but they keep him plenty busy with folding laundry, which is also one of his favorites when it comes to busy-work. He often questions why on earth we’d be going through this many towels, when it’s just the two of us, as we sit at the dining table in the nursing home and everything else is forgotten. I love the days he can focus enough to tell me he misses me, even though he doesn’t have a clue who I am. I’ll take that, as it’s better than him thinking I’m a stranger there to visit someone else, which has happened a time or two. This morning I couldn’t remember what day it was. I know it happens when a holiday starts off the week and everyone gets off kilter, since Monday was spent as if it were Sunday. The harder I tried to sort it out, the more confused I got, and then paranoia set in and I began to think dementia was looming ahead. By the time I figured out the day of the week, I had poured myself a cup of coffee and was about to put dish soap in my cup, instead of powdered creamer. I really started freaking out and my mind clouded over, more than likely from hyperventilating than anything else. I don’t know if dementia is hereditary, but my grandma, dad’s mom suffered from it as well. I could look it up on the Internet, but I’m afraid to find out that it is passed on through the generations and then begin to convince myself I’m losing my mind. Reaching in the drawer for a spoon, I saw four pairs of scissors. I immediately checked the trash to make sure the empty boxes weren’t cut up. There were still intact, although I considered cutting them to pieces, as maybe dad was on to something when it comes to clearing the mind.

How far we’ve come Have you noticed how a song can be so appropriate to a situation that it is almost a sound track to a chapter in your life? Maybe it’s a couple’s “our song,” or a tune associated with happy or sad time in one’s life. The right song can even describe feelings associated with a flood. On June 10, I drove to our land near Interstate 29 to check on the water as I had done every day for more than a week. Each time, the farm had been dry with a thriving crop of corn and soybeans. Some weeds were growing too, but there was no point in spraying a doomed crop. On June 10, their end had come. Water was filling the field south of ours and it had already crossed the lane separating the two properties. I drove through the water and checked our neighbor’s abandoned house. It looked as if she had only left for the morning. Pots were on high shelves of her greenhouse and flowers bloomed throughout the yard. The lawn was neatly mowed. A flag waved proudly on a high flagpole east of the house. It was a beautiful sight. A song played on the car radio. “I’m waking up at the start of the end of the world, but it’s feeling like every morning before

staring at the passengers waving goodbye. Can you tell me what was really special about me all this time? I started running, but there’s nowhere to run to. I sat down on the street, took a look at myself, said, where you going? You know the world is headed for hell. Say all your goodbyes while you still have someone to say goodbye to.” I counted the seconds it took for insignificant riverlets to move from bean plant to bean plant and made a quick calculation that the water was progressing about 170-feet per hour. I took one last look at our knee-high corn and walked to the car. The water was getting deeper on the lane and it was time to go. “It’s gone, gone, baby, it’s all gone. There’s nobody on the corner and there’s nobody home. Cool, cool, it was just all cool. Now, it’s over for me

and it’s over for you. I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh, well, I guess we’re gonna pretend.” Our world didn’t end, of course. Valley people from Montana through Missouri worked together and persevered. They adapted and survived. The hardest part lies ahead as families cope with ruined homes and damaged fields. For many, the full extend of the damage is unknown, but the clean up will be an unpleasant chore. The expense to families, governments and businesses is still unknown, but, in time, our flood will become a series of stories to tell the next generation. Then, at a future time, we will, in the words of Rob Thomas and Matchbox Twenty, understand, “how far we’ve come.”

News from the Extension Service

Flooded cropland issues Part 2 Last week I wrote about cropland damage from the long duration flooding of the Missouri River. My last paragraph was, “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.” Since I wrote that, Extension has hosted a webinar by Iowa State University and University of Nebraska-Lincoln extension specialists and also I have walked around some fields with a couple farmers and participated again in FSA farmer meetings. As I, and others have said at all these events, every field and part of fields need to be

Now I wonder what my life is really going To be like when it’s gone.” I remembered the previous Saturday when I counted 18 vehicles pulling trailers filled with furniture and I saw several other families loading their pickups. I remembered the mad rush to empty grain bins that a Coop worker compared to the fall harvest. Someone else counted 28 people hauling furniture during the weekend. Modale was virtually empty, and people were leaving Mondamin and Missouri Valley. My wife and I had moved valuables too, and, like our neighbors, we had planned escape routes should the water move too close. One neighbor had nowhere to go and said with a smile, if it came to evacuation, he and his wife would take a summer long camping trip. Others had similar plans and were destined to spend their summer on campgrounds, at other’s homes, or in an old Dana College dorm in Blair, Neb. Our mail carrier had said she would keep delivering our mail as long as she could. The hardest part of her job had been determining who was still around and who had left. “The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour and I started

examined differently, and I only give folks things to consider in planning. Some of those are: •Where it is feasible and seed is available, establishing a cover crop is a good consideration. We are now getting very late for non-hardy cover crops to get a lot done (oats, annual ryegrass, etc.) so think about possible use of winter cereals (winter wheat, winter rye, etc.) Bin run seed is an option, but there is a concern if the winter wheat is infected with wheat scab that the Fusarium organism may add to corn stalk rot issues, so add that to your thoughts. •Once the soil dewatered and oxygen has reentered, soil testing particularly for soil phosphorous levels is a good plan. I would consider fertilizer P rates at or even a bit above the top recommended rate this year, assuming the land will be cropped. Also, if it is possible, applying some P as starter (in bands) is a positive thought.

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator •Be very cautious of magical cures, including special revitalizing inocula to restore soil health, or to free up locked nutrients. By and large, they are not sound practices. But if you plant soybeans, definitely do inoculate soybeans with Rhizobium inoculant. •Consider soybean in lieu of corn, particularly if there was no cover grown post-flood. The soybean can be planted later, which allows for more dewatering and aeration of the soil and more plant growth, be it weeds or cover crop, and soybeans appear to take less hit from the P and related deficiency issues.

Consider crop year 2012 as a recovery year- things are not “normal.” As I get more information, there are links to the Sept. 12 crop webinar segments so you can watch them at your leisure at the top of the disaster recovery webpage of ISU Extension at: Let me know if you have thoughts or comments to share. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at or 644-2105.

Letter to the Editor In praise of farmers Dear Editor, The fall harvest season will soon be here. The football season has started and I would like to tell you a little about the America Needs Farmers campaign. During the mid-1980’s, Iowa Hawkeye football coach Hayden Fry placed gold logos on the team’s helmets that stated ANF or “America Needs Farmers,” to call attention to the plight of agriculture during the farm crises. While farming has changed since then, the message has not: America Needs Farmers. This fall the Iowa Farm Bureau and the University of Iowa have launched the

“America Needs Farmers,” initiative. The goal of this collaborative effort is to help consumers understand the challenges and opportunities today’s farmers face. The ANF effort is important because consumers today are two to three generations away from the farm and want to know more about how their food is produced and it all starts with farmers. As part of the multi-year effort UI will create a permanent ANF plaza at Kinnick stadium, Oct. 15 will be designated as “ANF Game Day,” and the ANF logo will be prominently displayed on the Hawkeye football helmets. The Iowa Farm Bureau and UI will also create a website to educate consumers about modern farm practices and challenges. A section will be

added to UI official website,, dedicated to telling the ANF story. Farming has changed a lot since 1985. the seed we plant, the way we plant, the equipment we use has changed, but so has the need for food and energy. Much of the nation’s innovation in renewable energy, medicine, building materials and diagnostic tools come from what we grow, but the goal remains unchanged – making sure consumers have a safe, wholesome food choice at the grocery store. So as you come up on slow moving farm equipment this fall think ANF and pass with care. Russell Kurth President, Harrison County Farm Bureau

Important to contact officials Dear Editor, As the Missouri River floodwaters recede, please continue to contact your state and national representatives and senators. Without continued input to our officials, it is probable that the Corps of Engineers will continue business as usual. Flood control needs to be the Corps of Engineers top priority. Their actions affect both city and rural citizens. Let’s work together to reduce the risk of flooding. Randy Olsen Missouri Valley

Crews were busy Sept. 15 erecting Western Skies Scenic Byways signs along U.S. Highway 30 including this site in Logan. The signs are part of the overall Iowa Byways Sustainability Project. The Western Skies logo, an American windmill silhouetted with rolling hills and an orange sky, is part of a family of new logos that all share a similar aesthetic. Each is topped with the Iowa Byways medallion. The signs are intended to help byway travelers guide their way through some of the most scenic landscapes in Iowa. Photo: Mary Darling

Nikki Davis For the Herald-Observer After months of planning, the 23rd annual Woodbine Applefest is just around the corner, slated for Sept. 24 this year. The annual event draws thousands to Woodbine – filling Woodbine’s historic brick streets (and every other street) with everything from food vendors, craft vendors, antiques, antique cars, tractors, apple pies, fun for children and more. The Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast will open the day – an annual event at Applefest. Pancakes will be served from 6:30-11 a.m. at the Harrison County R.E.C. building. On the menu is all you can eat pancakes, ham, applesauce, coffee, juice and milk. Proceeds from the event cover an array of projects sponsored by Kiwanis. The annual craft fair will feature over 100 booths. The streets will be lined with flea and antique vendors as well as food vendors. Tours of the Harrison County Genealogical Society and the Merry Brook School House will be available to festival goers. Airplane rides will be available (reachable by shuttle service) at the local airport beginning at 10 a.m. The brick streets of Lincoln Way – and portions of Sixth

Street – will be lined with around 200 vehicles from the past and present, lined up, waxed and ready to be judged at the annual car show. The tractor show will be near the Main Street Station further down on Lincoln Way. The quilt and doll show were moved to the Woodbine High School Family Consumer Science Room last year and will be on display there once again in 2011. Depot and caboose tours are open to the public once again as well. Of course, the Woodbine Methodist Church will have their apple pies available for purchase, and the Christian Church will be hosting their homemade chicken and noodle dinner. Food from almost every ethnic background will be available. Children will be sufficed once again by a petting zoo, entertainment throughout the day, face painting and inflatable games. Newer events returning this year will include the archery competition, now in it’s fourth year, and the Loess Hills Country Cloggers, making their third appearance at the annual celebration. Making a comeback from the past will be an Applefest Fun Run. The walk is slated to begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Woodbine City Park. Registration will be held

from 7:30-8:25 a.m. For more information, contact Shawna Harris at the Woodbine Elementary School at 647-2440. At the Woodbine Saddle Club Rodeo Grounds, a lawn tractor pull will begin at 1 p.m., promising to provide entertainment for the whole family. The Harrison County Genealogical Society will be offering an interesting project for visitors to peruse. The society worked hand in hand with Notson Studios recreating 15,000 archived photos from Harrison County between 1925 and 1965. The group will also have guest speakers telling stories about what it was like to attend country school. New to the event this year will be a senior spelling bee. The event received such a large response that it had to be moved from the Merry Brook School House in Kiwanis Park to the Woodbine United Methodist Church. The event is for those 55 and older. The senior spelling bee is slated to begin at 3 p.m.

Following up the plethora of activities on Sept. 24 will be an Applefest Golf Tournament on Sun., Sept. 25, The tournament will be a two couple, alternating shot contest with an 11:30 a.m. shotgun start at Shadow Valley Golf Course. Organizers are hoping for good weather and a good turn out for the event, which saw a rainy start in 2010 and look forward to showing off the improvements in Woodbine. “Come and check out all the progress the Main Street-Chamber has helped with the façade renovations of the downtown buildings and the Woodbine Grain Elevator,” Applefest Committee Chairman Marvin Kelley said. “Due to the renovations keeping the city busy, there aren’t many new events for 2011, but there are plenty of tradition, classic Applefest activities for the whole family to enjoy. The rain last year put a damper on some of the events, so this might be the year to come get reacquainted … or come enjoy it for the first time if you’ve never been.”

Harrison County Conservation Board recently commissioned Pam Cates, of Missouri Valley, to paint a conservation and hunting mural at the Willow Lake Recreation Area. Conservation practices including terraces, grassed waterways, CRP and public hunting land make the backdrop for deer, turkeys, coyote, pheasants and nongame wildlife like small birds and an owl. HCCB wanted a mural to show agricultural practices that result in land steward-

ship as well as hunting safety. Scored antlers and mounted wildlife also adorn the wall. REAP funds were used to pay for the artwork. The Nature Encounter Center is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (closed if staff is at another park), and 1-4 p.m. Oct. 15. Visitors are encouraged to see the natural history displays and live animals along with the newly completed mural. For more information, visit or HCCB’s Facebook page.

Lo-Ma Panthers pluck Treynor Cardinals 35-7 in Sept. 16 game Nancy Voggesser For the Herald-Observer The Logan-Magnolia Panthers scored very quickly against the Treynor Cardinals, Sept. 16. Although the Cadinals started the game on offense, Caden McDonald blocked the first punt of the night, scooped up the ball and ran it 40 yards in for the score. Nate Fender followed it up with a point after to put the Panthers up early 7-0. Treynor just couldn’t get anything going on its next possession, fumbling the ball at 10:24 left in the first quarter. The Panthers recovered the fumble, started their own drive and with 7:55 left in the quarter, scored again on a Paul Hutson 19-yard scamper. Fender’s kick was good to bring the score to 14-0. The Panther defense, led by Hutson, McDonald, Brennan Azinger and Dominic Snyder, gave Treynor’s another three and out. The Panther offense came out again and

orchestrated another drive on the ground using Zack Powley, Hutson and McDonald to keep the clock running as they rushed downfield. With 2:29 left in the first quarter, Hutson broke free on a 12-yard carry into the end zone. Fender’s follow-up kick ended the first quarter scoring with Lo-Ma up 210. The Treynor Cardinal offense just couldn’t shake the Lo-Ma defense for the rest of the first half. Nick Knudsen, Gannon Cunard, Logan Melby and Brian Zephier teamed up with the rest of the defense to swarm the Cardinal ball carriers.
