From the Front
SWI WINDOWS: New business FROM PAGE 1 windows and doors in the area. “It was a good welcome to the community,” Gruver said. It necessitated the hiring of several subcontractors for the business located at 203 E. Seventh St., in Logan on the corner of U.S. Highway 30 and State Highway 127. Gruver, who worked more than 10 years for a remodeling company in Omaha, Neb. drove by the building in Logan for many years. “When I saw the price was right, I jumped,” he said. The business handles siding, gutters, residential shingle and metal roofing,
leaf guard, doors and windows. As the business continued to handle repair calls, Gruver kept working on the construction of his showroom at the site. “The showroom displays siding, doors, windows and the different home improvement products available,” Gruver said. He said he wants to continue to add to the showroom with more interactive displays showing before and after work. Besides the business, Gruver has also served for three years as the pastor of the Lifeline Church in Dunlap. Besides growing the business, he and his wife, Heather, keep busy raising five children ages
20 months to 12 years old. “We want to continue to invest in the community,” Gruver said. “It’s gone really well so far. The community has been very welcoming.” Gruver invited community members to stop by the office and see the work completed in remodeling the former service station and see what the company has to offer. “We are a small town company that can offer what the big cities can at about the same price,” Gruver said. “We can be extremely competitive.” The business is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and Saturday by appointment. They can be reached at 712-216-1386.
LO-MA BOARD: Contracts approved FROM PAGE 1 cussed piloting an iPad learning lab in a core class as well as security software the district needs at a cost for the software of approximately $1,500. Katelyn Gochenour and Brillie Millsap, representing a large contingent of students, requested the board consider a school affiliated high school soccer program. Soccer coaches from St. Albert and TriCenter were also present to answer questions. Later in the meeting, the board decided not to pursue the program due to lack of funds in the activity account. Christi Gochenour discussed a fundraising event the Ag Science class took part in at the Aronia Berry farm festival helping park cars. They earned $240 in donations from those that attended and were presented with a $750 check from the Pittz family Sept. 21, for the construction of the greenhouse. Other donations received recently were $250 from the Loess Hills Garden Society and $1,000 from Cogdill with a matching grant for another
$1,000. That brings the total raised to $14,455. Approximately $22,000 is needed. Contracts were approved for: •Nate Simons, assistant speech •Matt Straight, assistant athletic director •Shad Hornbeck, head junior high boys basketball •Gary Peterson, assistant junior high boys basketball •Kyle Graber, first assistant high school boys basketball •Trent Lally, second assistant high school boys basketball •Rick Emswiler, architectural services for the storage shed project •Cummins Central power, for repair work on the emergency generator •Charlie Green, snow removal The college credit minimum grade limit was discussed by the board. Junior-senior principal Gochenour would like to set a minimum grade level for students taking college credit classes to continue taking college credit classes. Gochenour discussed
her concerns with the attendance policy. She would like to revise the policy to require a minimum of 158 days of attendance. Elementary Principal Jim Makey presented the Title I Grant for the 201112 school year to the board for its approval. The board reviewed several updates from the Iowa Association of School Boards to policies regarding employee records, open meetings and public records laws and video camera use on school buses. A fundraiser request from the band and choir was approved. The board did not act on a fundraiser request from the Teacher Support Organization due to liabiltiy reasons. Open enrollment requests for Beverly Harvey for one sixth grade student from Woodbine to Lo-Ma and Ardith Jordan for one fourth grade student from Missouri Valley to Lo-Ma were approved. The district received an $800 check from Community Bank, who has annually given the school a donation.

There is a charge
of $25. For Medicare Part B enrollees, Medicare will pay for the flu shot. Bring your card with you. HCHPH does not bill private insurance companies, Medicaid or Medicare HMOs. Children with Medicaid, no health insurance, insurance that does not cover any of the cost of vaccines, or who are Native American or Alaskan Native may receive a flu shot from the Vaccines for Children supply provided by the Iowa Department of Public Health at no charge. Anyone can get and spread the flu, even health people, Abrams said. While the flu can make anyone sick, certain people are at a
greater risk for serious complications from the flu, including the elderly, young children, people with chronic lung disease, diabetes, heart disease, neurological conditions and certain other long-term medical conditions, as well as pregnant and postpartum women. Abrams reminds citizens that this year’s flu shot is needed even if they received a shot last season because flu viruses are always changing. Last season’s vaccine may not protect against the viruses circulating this season. For more information visit www.flu.gov or call 644-2220.

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.
Instructions I never knew I’d miss It’s hard to believe a year has passed since moving dad into a nursing home. When you’re removed from a stressful situation, over time, it doesn’t seem like it was so bad. I miss taking care of him, but sometimes forget the trauma dementia caused both of us. While cleaning off my computer, I came across instructions I had made for a friend who took care of dad when we left the country for a week last May for my daughter’s destination wedding. These instructions made me realize I waited too long to get dad some help. Shaving: Sometimes dad will remember to shave but when he doesn’t he’ll say he wishes he could do something about his face (whiskers bother him). Just ask him to come to the bathroom. I usually have to coax him to stand in front of the mirror (be prepared because he doesn’t recognized himself and will hold conversations with the guy in the mirror). Put shaving cream in his right hand and say, “OK, here’s your razor,” and leave the bathroom. He will do the rest by himself. The Dog: The dog food is by the basement door. Always check the dog bowls because sometimes the water bowl will be full of Diet Coke or dad has filled the food bowl with doughnuts. Dad will let the dog out to do his business. Daily Routine: Morning: I don’t go over until around 9:00 to give him time to get up and dressed. He will have eaten plenty of snacks so don’t worry about feeding him breakfast. Afternoon: I go around noon. Meals on Wheels will deliver lunch between 10:30 and 11:30. Sometimes he will just put the meal in the fridge so I will heat it up for him. You’ll know if he does eat it, because the tray it came in will be in the backyard by the bird feeder. Please throw away. Evening: Anytime between 4 or 5 p.m. and actually his favorite is peanut butter and jelly or cheeseburger and fries from McDonald’s. If you do bring him a cheeseburger, buy an extra one for the dog, otherwise dad will feed all of his to his furry friend. Snacks: The snacks are in the cabinet and he can easily go through at least one box a day. Just keep the bowl full. When you feed him dinner, he will be hesitant to eat in front of you so reassure him that you have already eaten. Be prepared to repeat this every few minutes. Things to do: There are empty boxes in the cabinet. They have been flattened and he doesn’t like to cut them up unless they look like they just came out of the cabinet, so I put them back together and leave them by the trashcan. Make sure his scissors are in plain view. I turn the TV on in the morning (even if he has the radio on) and turn to the golf channel or an old black and white movie that’s on. He gets upset if the news is on or a movie with people screaming. If he leaves the radio on and the batteries run out, there are more in the closet. Phone calls: I’m going to leave dad a note saying I went to the lake for the weekend. He will still call my number. When he calls, no matter what he says (he usually doesn’t know why he’s calling) tell him you will be there in an hour to bring him something to eat (regardless of whether it really will be an hour or you’re bringing him something to eat). He’ll say, “You’re good man, thank you,” and hang up. If you miss his call, go ahead and call him back, otherwise he’ll just sit there and keep dialing my number until you answer. He won’t know what he wants, and may not even remember calling, but just go ahead and say you’ll be over in a little while. He usually calls me before he goes to bed (sometime early if it’s raining or gloomy, around 6:30 or 7:00 p.m.) Tell him goodnight, he’ll hang up and go to bed. Goodnight, dad, I miss you.

Unsung Hero Cyril Richard Rescorla grew up in Hayle, Britain during World War II. At the time, his hometown was headquarters for an infantry division mainly composed of United States soldiers. The young boy idolized them and decided he wanted to become a soldier like the Americans. He was a natural athlete and as time passed, Rescorla thought Cyril was not an appropriate name for someone who wanted to be a soldier. His new name became Rick. He enlisted in the British Army in 1957 and trained as a paratrooper. He also served with an intelligence unit in Cyprus during the Cypriot insurgency. Later, Resorla served in Africa. Rick later moved to the United States and lived at the New York WMCA until he could enlist in the United States Army. He was a platoon leader in Vietnam in 1965, and his unit was part of the battle of La Drang described in the book and movie “We were Soldiers Once….and Young.” He is the soldier in the book cover picture. A co-author of the book said Rick was “the best platoon leader I ever saw.” Besides an array of awards for brav-
ery, Rescorla won the respect of his men and superiors for his unusual concern for their welfare. They became like his family and his platoon had one of the lowest casualty rates in the war. Even so, he suffered emotionally and blamed himself for his lost soldiers. After the war, Rescorla worked a variety of jobs in academia and banking, but in 1984, he took a new career path as a security officer in the World Trade Center. In 1994, he was promoted to director of security for Morgan Stanley. Before 1990, Rick hired several Army friends to help and they decided the World Trade Center was vulnerable to attack. They studied evacuation procedures and helped save lives during the first 1993 attack. Rick was the last man out when the Trade Center was evacuated after the bomb exploded. Years passed and Resorla became almost obsessed about the World Trade Center. He was convinced terrorists would bomb it again. Rick tried to persuade his bosses to move to another location, but Morgan Stanley’s lease was effective until 2006.
Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist firstname.lastname@example.org
Rick acted on his fears by organizing surprise emergency evacuation drills every three months. His fellow employees hated the drills because they interrupted work, and wasted time. However, he was relentless and his bosses grudgingly supported him when people complained. On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Rick was meeting with managers to discuss the company’s planned lawsuit against the Port Authority over security lapses leading to the 1993 bombing. The first plane struck at 8:45 a.m., and officials told the workers to stay put. Rick ignored them and began his evacuation plan. He reminded the workers to be calm as he sang, “God Bless America,” and Cornish songs to put them
in a better mood. The operation was so efficient that Rick had evacuated 2,700 Morgan Stanley and many other workers from several floors before the second plane crashed into the tower. With his coworkers safely outside, a colleague told him he also had to evacuate, but he replied, “as soon as I make sure everyone else is out.” Rescorla was last seen headed up from the 10th floor. Part of his legacy is that all but 13 of Morgan Stanley’s employees survived. They credited Rick with saving their lives and remembered one of the songs he had sung to them. “Men of Cornwall stand ye ready It cannot be said ye For the battle were not ready Stand and never yield.”
News from the Extension Service
Harbingers of Fall Many people are used to the term harbinger associated with the coming of spring, but as I drove south today, it sure seems appropriate to note harbingers of fall as well. I enjoy the nice things that each season in Iowa brings. But if I am forced to choose, fall is my favorite, and those early indicators are now in abundance. Fall-flowering wildflowers are approaching their peak along roadsides, field edges and in prairies. Canada goldenrod is really noticeable with its plume of rich gold growing in clumps on roadsides. If you look closely, the goldenrod hosts a rich mix of interesting insects and spiders. Lately, I have been on the minor mission of convincing people that goldenrod does not contribute to hay fever suffering. The poor goldenrod plant has been maligned (wrongly) for generations because it is attractive, but chooses its neighbors and timing of flowering poorly. About the time its gold wants of flowers begin to
show, there is a profusion of late-season ragweed and other pollens sent airborne, and hay fever sufferers have visually associated the two events as one. In actuality, goldenrod produces rather sticky pollen that needs to be carried from place to place by insects rather than by the wind. Hence the profusion of insect activity on the plumes of flowers – the plant is simply providing a food offering to the insects in exchange for transporting of the pollen from flower to flower. Another fall marker is the flagging of trees as leaves wrap up the end of the season with a blaze of glory. What actually happens is the green chlorophyll that captures the sun’s energy goes away, exposing other base colors. The various shades of fall leaves depend on both the typical characteristics of the species and the seasonal weather. This year will likely be better for fall color than some other parts of Iowa, because we have gotten more mid and late summer rainfall than
Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator many places east of us. The good summer rainfall helps develop the expression of colors. And yet another friendly reminder of the coming fall and winter is the aggregation and mass departure of monarch butterflies. A big reason the monarchs are held in warm regard is that they have some advantages in that they are large and attractive, they have interesting larvae that feed on milkweed, which isn’t a crop plant, they don’t harm people, and we know about their amazing annual migration to central Mexico and then back in the spring. Oh yes, I had a nearly bad reminder of yet another fall harbinger this morning on my way to the office.
Early to mid-fall is a particularly notable time for deer-car accidents; just west of Magnolia I had a family of white-tailed deer challenge fate and dash in front of me. Fortunately, I saw them and could avoid the entourage, but it reminds me that the deer are quite active now as rutbreeding season-ensues. It seems their small minds are driven by factors that make them be mobile and even more oblivious to passing cars. So be especially careful driving for the next month of so. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension Office at email@example.com or 6442105.

The meal will begin
when the doors open at 6 p.m. with an entrance fee of $25 per person or $15 for Greenwings. The cost includes a Ducks Unlimited membership as well as the evening’s meal consisting of pulled pork sandwiches and two sides. Other raffles will be held throughout the night and the event is expected to last approximately two hours.

Take steps to find breast cancer early By Alegent Health Do you know someone who is putting off having a mammogram? If it’s hard to get motivated, listen to Lisa Zeis, a human resources executive, who was treated for an aggressive form of breast cancer. “Early detection is key,” Zeis said. “If I had not conducted a self check and found my lump early, it’s possible that I could still be fighting cancer that had spread or, even worse, not even be here to tell my story.” Women should take
screenings very seriously, said family physician Mary Lob M.D., of the Alegent Health Clinic in Logan. “If you think you’re too busy to get a mammogram, look at it this way – it’s only an hour out of your year,” Lob said. “The best defense is to find breast cancer as early as possible – when it is small, has not spread and is easier to treat.” A mammogram really can save your life, she said. “Mammograms can

find a lesion a year or two before we can feel it,” Lob said. “It’s easy for patients to miss something, even with regular self exams.” The American Cancer Society recommends these guidelines for most women: Ages 20 to 39 •Have a clinical breast exam by a healthcare professional every three years •Be aware of what your breasts normally look and feel like, and report any changes or new breast symptoms to a doctor or nurse right away. Breast self-exam is an option. Ages 40 and over •Get a mammogram every year •Have a yearly clinical breast exam by a healthcare professional, near the time of the mammogram •Report any breast changes, including changes in how the skin looks or feels, to your healthcare provider right away. Breast self-exam is an option.

Grants available for rural fire departments The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has grant money available for Iowa’s rural fire departments to help purchase equipment to battle wildfires. The grants offer funding assistance for wildfire suppression equipment, personal protective equipment and communications equipment. Fire supervisor with the DNR’s Forestry Bureau Gail Kantak said fire departments were mailed information about the grants in July. She said fire departments should remember to send her a Wildland Fire Report whenever they respond to a wildland fire or provide assistance to a prescribed
or controlled wildland fire. Departments actively returning these reports can receive priority points in the Volunteer Fire Assistance grant application scoring process. “It is important for rural fire departments to return these reports so we can assess the actual demands on our rural fire departments as a result of wildfire,” she said. The wildland fire reports will be compiled locally and nationally and will be reported to Congress. The grants package and the Wildland Fire Report form is available at http://www.iowadnr.gov/E nvironment/Forestry/FireP revention/FirePrograms.as px.
The Volunteer Fire Assistance Applications are due Oct. 15. The grant provides 50 percent reimbursement for wildland fire equipment with a maximum reimbursement grant of $3,500 per department. Wildland Fire Report Form: This form should be submitted as wildland fires are responded to and as prescribed/controlled fires are assisted with. Iowa DNR Forestry Bureau Fire Program Opportunities: outlines the programming opportunities available to Iowa’s fire suppression agencies by the Iowa DNR Forestry Bureau in cooperation with federal, state and local partners.

Reinvesting Dividends Can Pay Off When you invest in stocks, you want their price to go up. But of course, you can’t control the rise and fall of stock prices. However, there is a key element of investing that you can control — the number of shares you own. And in the long run, share ownership may be more important than rising stock prices in determining your long-term investment success. Of course, you might think that the advice of “buy more shares” is easier said than done. After all, not everyone can easily find a lot of extra money to invest. But you don’t need access to vast wealth to increase your share ownership — you just need to consistently reinvest your stock dividends. Just how important are reinvested dividends to wealth accumulation, as compared to capital gains (the increase in stock prices)? Over the 135-year period from 1871 through 2003, owning stocks and reinvesting the dividends produced 97% of all stock market returns, with only 3% coming from capital gains, according to a major study done by Dr. Jeremy Siegel, one of the world’s leading researchers on stock market performance. Other studies have also pointed to the importance of dividends as a component of
total returns. What are the implications of this disparity between the effectiveness of dividend reinvestment versus that of capital gains? First of all, it suggests that you may not want to spend an undue amount of time and effort in chasing after “hot” stocks, hoping for big capital gains. For one thing, by the time you buy these stocks, they may already be cooling off, but even more importantly, your focus on achieving large capital gains may not be the best use of your financial resources. Ultimately, the power of dividend reinvestment means, not surprisingly, that you may be able to help yourself if you look for quality dividend-paying stocks — and then reinvest the dividends, month after month and year after year. With just a little research, you can find stocks that have paid — and even increased — dividends for many years in a row. (Keep in mind, though, that not all stocks will pay dividends, and even those that do can reduce or discontinue them at any time. Dividend reinvestment does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.) So, to help boost your share ownership,

consider reinvesting the dividends back into the stock, rather than taking them as cash payments. If you do choose to reinvest your dividends, though, you will need to look to other types of investments to provide you with income, assuming you need some income from your portfolio, which may become more necessary during your retirement years. Your financial advisor can help you determine the appropriate investments to help provide this income. But in any case, if you can do without the current income provided by dividends, give careful consideration to reinvesting them. Dividend reinvestment is not a glamorous investment strategy, and it won’t help you “get rich quick,” but it can help you make steady progress toward your long-term financial goals — and that’s a key dividend in itself.

Roll call showed council members Rick Dilley, Sherry Sherer, Annie Freihage and Heather Cox present. Beth Granay absent. Staffs present Darlene Hammack city clerk and Rodney Holben maintenance supervisor. Steve Perry from Olmstead & Perry Consulting Engineers, Inc. Courtney Harter from SWIPCO was also present. Motion by Sherer to approve the agenda. Seconded by Fillry. All ayes. Motion carried. ...Courtney Harter asked the City Clerk if any oral or written comments have been received, and the response was none. The City Clerk has contact information if anyone has comments or questions after this public hearing. The City of Pisgah has taken every practical measure to make sure this meeting location was accessible to persons with disabilities. This Public Hearing is a requirement of the State Revolving Fund (SRF) program. The City has been awarded a wastewater treatment plant loan from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). Harter described the project need and description. It was explained that because the system is old and has issues with storm water infiltration, the wastewater lagoon system is not adequate to maintain compliance with the City’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) has approved the proposed project’s engineering report. All required agencies have been contacted to provide the necessary clearances allowing the project to proceed. An environmental assessment has been prepared by IDNR for this project. IDNR has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) based on the following information: 1. The project will not significantly affect the pattern and type of land use or growth and distribution of population.
2. The project will not conflict with local, regional or State land use plans or policies. 3. The project will not affect threatened and endangered species or their habitats. 4. The project will not displace population. 5. The project will not affect the 100year floodplain provided a Flood Plain Development Permit is obtained from the Iowa DNR and from the City of Pisgah and the terms are abided by. 6. The project will not have effect on parklands, preserves, other public lands, or areas of recognized scenic or recreational value. 7. No historic properties will be affected. 8. The project will not have a significant adverse effect upon local ambient noise levels, surface water quality, ground water quality or quantity or water supply. 9. No significant impact to surface water quality, fish, shellfish, wildlife, or their natural habitats is expected provided that an NPDES General Permit Number 2 (for storm water discharge associated with construction activities) is obtained and the terms of which are abided by. ..This concluded project remarks, and the floor was opened for any additional questions. No further questions were aksed by those present. This being the time and place for the bid opening for the wastewater lagoon rehabilitation and expansion project, Engineer Steve Perry proceeded to open and publicly read the sealed bids and the lump sum bid amount from: JJ Westhoff Construction, Lincoln, Nebraska, $`1,007,000; JB Holland Construction, Decorah, Iowa, $720,455; Lessard Contracting, Inc., Sargeant Bluffs, Iowa, $882,000. The Engineer will review the bids, and report back to the council at the October 5, 2011 council meeting. ........Motion by Freihage to adopt Resolution #11-5 City Street Financial Report, Seconded by Dilley. Roll call vote. Ayes Freihage, Cox, Dilley, Sherer. Nays none. Motion carried. Motion to adjourn by Freihage. Seconded by Dilley. All yeas. Motion carried. The Mayor adjourned the meeting at 7:15 p.m. Donald O. Clark, Mayor Attest: Darlene Hammack, City Clerk 39-1
HARRISON COUNTY LANDFILL COMMISSION MEETING MINUTES September 14, 2011 The H.C.L.C. regular meeting was called to order at 6:59 p.m., September 14, 2011 by Chairman R. Smith. Roll call showed Representatives: R. Holthe, M. Rhoten, S. Struble, J. Bertelsen, S. Clark, P. Marshall and Solid Waste Mgr. D. Barry. Also in attendance was Clint Sargeant, the City of Mo. Valley’s Mayor and CWI’s recycling coordinator.
There were no changes to the presented agenda. S. Struble motioned to accept the agenda. M. Rhoten seconded the motion. All yeas. Motion passed. There were no changes to the August, 2011 meeting minutes and directors memos. S. Struble motioned to approve the meeting minutes and directors memos. J. Bertelsen seconded the motion. All yeas. Motion passed. Dan reviewed the budget and claims: The CD’s were reviewed with no changes from last month’s report. The August sales, along with the checking and savings accounts were reviewed. There were no questions or discussion on the account balances. The budget was reviewed with August being the second month of the new fiscal year. Dan went through each budget group totals, noting that income is still running ahead of projection because of shingles and yet our total expenses are at below level projections at this time. The representatives reviewed the claims that were being presented. Dan went through each line-item of the claims. After general discussion, S. Struble motioned to approve the budget and pay the claims. S. Clark seconded the motion. All yeas. Motion passed. Item #5 was to discuss flood issues that the landfill facility and H.C.L.C. member cities are experiencing tat this time and issues that will occur when the flooding is over. A. There was no new information given or received on this line item. The next agenda item was for questions/concerns for Dan to address by the representatives: The representatives had no questions for Dan. Dan had a small list of items to discuss for the representatives to think about: A. The audit has been completed and the report will be presented at the October meeting. B. The engineering firm will prepare information and present it at a meeting regarding the next landfill permit renewal in the coming months. C. Dan will be attending the IRA/ISOSWA Conference on Oct. 35. Clint Sargent reported that the CWI recycling center processed 92 ton of recycle materials in August. He also reported that the City of Missouri Valley plans on using their sand for winter streets and believes they will have a stock pile that will last a number of years. Resolution 2011-5 was looked at and discussed. This resolution is to establish responsibilities between the HCLC staff and the HCLC members regarding the drop-box recycling program. There was general discussion regarding the HCLC member cities/towns understanding that this is their program to meet the legislative law passed in 1989 to meet IDNR requirements. Most of the discussion centered on the penalty fee item that might occur, from trash in the recycle bins. After discussion, Dan was told to change some language and present the changed resolution 2011-5 at the
October meeting. Resolution 2011-6 was looked at and discussed. This resolution is to establish costs for HCLC members in the event that they wish to use the 40 cu. yd. Roll-off box owned by the landfill. There was general discussion regarding the landfill not wanting to compete with the haulers that provide the same service. Dan had rates that haulers used for a 40 cu. yd. Roll-off box. After the representatives voiced their opinions and voting action given by their cities was discussed, the resolution was not introduced and thus will not be voted on. The HCLC will not take requests from HCLC member cities to rent this equipment. Resolutions 2011-7 and 2011-8 and 2011-9 were looked at and discussed. These resolutions set maximum amount of funds on deposit at the three banks which the H.C.L.C. have accounts with. This is an accounting procedure which Dan needs to review each year. After reviewing each resolution, S. Struble motioned to introduce Resolution 2011-7 and Resolution 2011-8 and Resolution 2011-9. J. Bertelsen seconded the motions on all three resolutions. All in favor. Motion passed. The month-end reports: membership report; landfill activity report; drop-box recycling reports; misc. information/news articles were looked at. The next regular meeting will be held on October 12, 2011. With no further items to discuss, M. Rhoten motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:00 p.m. S. Struble seconded the motion. All yeas. Motion passed. Robert Smith, HCLC Chairman Attest: Dan Barry, HCLC Mgr.

Panthers clinch Homecoming victory Sept. 23 over Clarinda Academy 61-6 Nancy Voggesser For the Herald-Observer After a rousing spirit boost from the Homecoming festivities the night before and a pep rally earlier in the day, the Logan-Magnolia Panthers hosted the Clarinda Academy Eagles for the Homecoming contest. The Panthers came out fired up and ready to win the game. The Eagles started the game on offense, but due to the stingy play of lineman Brian Zephier, Gannon Cunard, Chris Bridgeford, Brennan Azinger and Jordan Muxfeldt, they were unable to convert a first down during the first half of play. The Panther offense came out firing on all cylinders starting with a 39-yard scamper by Caden McDonald. Just 1:58 into the game, Paul Hutson scored the first of his six touchdowns with a 14-yard sprint down the left side of the field. Nate Fender’s extra point sailed straight through the uprights to give the Panthers the lead in the game. The Panthers’ next scoring drive came just three minutes later. The Panthers started on their own 45yard line. McDonald brought the ball up to the 28-yard line and Hutson
finished the drive into the end zone. Fender’s kick was again good to set the score at 14-0. The Eagles found that the Panther linemen were out on the field to shut down their run, which resulted in the Eagles’ third three and out. The Eagles’ punt went just eight scant yards, to put the Panthers into scoring territory again. With 3:57 left in the first quarter, Hutson scored his third touchdown with an 11-yard run. Fender’s kick set the score at 21-0. The Panthers weren’t done scoring in the first quarter yet, though, as Dominic Snyder got the call for a six-yard touchdown run with 1:45 left in the quarter. Fender’s kick bobbled, which made the score 27-0. As the first quarter time expired, Eric Brosnahan came up with an interception to set up another Hutson touchdown just 12 seconds into the second quarter. Hutson’s 41-yard run, followed by a true Fender kick, put the Panthers up 34-0. Nate Fender got a chance to test out his receivers in the next drive. With 8:59 left in the half, Fender connected with Zach Powley on a 23-yard pass into the end zone. Fender’s kick again sailed through the uprights to
make the score 41-0. Hutson scored two more times to close the first half of play. With 4:12 left in the half, he powered through the defense on a two-yard carry and with 31 seconds left, he broke free for a 32yard run. Fender was true on both extra point attempts to end scoring for the half at 55-0. The Panther junior varsity and freshmen players got the opportunity to garner some valuable varsity minutes during the second half of play. Drake Cohrs, Jake Riesland and John Thiele carried some snaps while Nick Knudsen handled the quarterbacking duties. The Panther defense stayed strong with Nick Edney, Justin Yost, Tanner Winther, Jacob Stueve, Logan Worley, Austin Ettleman and Dillon Bonham in the trenches. With 2:33 left in the third quarter, the Eagles got their only score for the night. Dimetri JohnsonTroy finished a ground-eating drive with a two-yard run into the end zone. The Eagle conversion attempt was no good, to make the score 55-6. Closing out the game, the junior varsity were able to put their own mark on the scorebooks. With 3:50 left in the game, Riesland found running room for a 15-yard touchdown run. The attempted conversion was no good. That ended scoring at 61-6.

Six teams from the Western Valley Conference converged on Lo-Ma Sept. 24 for Pool B of the Western Valley Conference volleyball tournament. Teams included Class 1A ranked Ar-We-Va, River Valley, Lawton-Bronson, Charter Oak-Ute and West Harrison. The Panther’s day started against a much taller team from Lawton-Bronson. LoMa came out strong against the Eagles keeping pace early in the match. The Eagles found their groove behind the duo of Josie Kopal and Leah Miller and handed the Panthers a 2514 loss. The Panthers again stayed within reach of the Eagles in game two, but fell short losing 25-18. Next up for the Panthers was a match against the talented River Valley Wolverines. Lo-Ma’s defense had all they could handle as the Wolverines relied on an attack style offense. The Lady Panthers held their own in game one, but lost the game 25-18. Game two saw a see-saw battle as the Panthers led River Valley several times. Games two ended in a heartbreaker as Lo-Ma lost 26-24. With two match losses on the day, the Panthers battled Class IA number 12 ranked Ar-We-Va Rockets. Hoping to avenge an earlier loss this season, the Panthers came out in game one with solid offense and defense. Giving the Rockets all they could handle, ArWe-Va managed to hang on to take the game 25-20. The Panthers came out in game two with the same intensity and this time beat the Rockets 25-19 to give LoMa its first game victory over the Rockets this season. Going into game three, the Panthers ran out of steam falling to the Rockets 15-10. The Panthers, now 0-3 for the day in match play

The Bobcats had struggled earlier in the day losing to Lawton Bronson and ArWe-Va by sizeable margins, but gave the Panthers a run for their money. A close game one ended with the Panthers squeezing out a win over the Bobcats by a score of 25-22. Game two was just as close with LoMa pulling out the victory 25-21. Lo-Ma had an hour break before playing the final match against the West Harrison Hawkeyes. In earlier meetings this season the Panthers fared well against the Hawkeyes, but Saturday the Hawkeyes put their best foot forward playing tough in a loss against a very good Lawton-Bronson team. The Panthers’ first game against West Harrison was a back and forth battle that lasted over 15 minutes with Lo-Ma defeating the Hawkeyes 25-20. Game two saw the Panthers play just a little better than West Harrison. The Panthers ended the day with a win over the Hawkeyes by a score of 25-18. Lo-Ma ended pool play with a match record of 2-5.

Panthers Sweep Hawkeyes It’s been a bumpy road for the Logan-Magnolia Panthers volleyball team this season. The Panthers smoothed one of those bumps Sept. 20 when playing host to West Harrison. The Panthers defeated the Hawkeyes just three days earlier at the West Harrison tournament and saw similar results in this meeting. Game one saw LoMa jumping to an early lead behind solid serving of senior Jocelyn Camenzind. The Panthers cruised to their largest margin of victory this season winning game one 25-9. Game two was a little closer as Lo-Ma downed the Hawkeyes 2513. Again, behind strong serving and solid defense, the Panthers took a third straight win in game three by a score of 25-14, giving the Panthers the match win on the night. Camenzind ended the night with 16 successful serves. Shelby Marquardt and Courtney Oviatt added solid offensive performance in the serving area combing for a serving efficiency of 92 percent. Maysen Jones led the Panthers in kills with eight, followed by Marquardt with seven.
