According to the ordinance proposed at the May 9 Logan City Council meeting, city water rates will be going up, but sewer rates will go down. The council passed the first reading of the ordinance that calls for a $2.44 increase in the minimum charge for water rates and a 14-cent increase per 1,000 gallons thereafter. The first reading of the ordinance to lower sewer rates was also passed at the meeting. According to this proposal, sewer rates will show an 84cent decrease to the minimum charge and a $1.04 decrease per 1,000 gallons thereafter. According to city administrator Angela Winther, someone who pays the minimum bill will see a $1.78 increase due to the water debt increase. Residents who use 5,000 gallons will see their statements

the plunge. “There was nowhere in town to go for breakfast,” she said. Prior to opening the café, the couple helped open and run a family restaurant, the Hacinda, in Omaha, Neb. “I also worked at Crossroads in Missouri Valley and Jose has been farming,” Chauncey said.

The café features American food plus Mexican specialties including chimichangas and fajitas. “Chimichangas are one of our best sellers. Business has been going good so far,” she said. “We have our coffee drinkers and regulars for breakfast, lunch is going great and dinner is starting to become more steady.” There will soon be a big

CHAMBER AWARD: Alex Skeen FROM PAGE 1 National Honor Society, was in band, jazz band, choir and show choir. His community activities include ringing bells for the Salvation Army during the holiday season, helping with the Easter Egg Hunt, decorating Christmas trees for Shiverfest and helping with the chili cook-off. Since the summer of his eighth grade year he has performed “Taps” at area veteran funerals. “It’s something necessary and it’s a privilege for me to get to do that,” Alex said. “It makes me feel good to give back to the veterans, even it’s only a small part.” The best thing about attending Logan-Magnolia is how close knit everyone is, he said. “The teachers are also very helpful.” For a little over a year he has also held a part time job at Logan Country Store. He said he likes the small

community because most people know each other. “There is a small town feel. We lived in Omaha when I was younger and didn’t know many people. I also like how clean it is and I feel safe. You don’t have to lock up everything,” Alex said. According to Alex, the accomplishment he is most proud of is being in the top academic percent of his class. “I’m also proud of my family for supporting me during tough and stressful times,” Alex said. “I’m also proud of my community service. It makes me feel good that my community needs me and I have the ability to help them out.” When he does have some free time, Alex likes to hang out with his friends on the weekends. “We do random things. One time we started a twoman football league,” he said. “ I also like to hunt and fish with my dad. The first

year I got a deer I was with my dad. I just like to be involved and stay busy.” According to Alex, the toughest challenge facing teens today is staying out of trouble. “You need to keep the image up that teens aren’t all troublemakers,” he said. Also a challenge, Alex said is keeping grades up with all the activities. He considers his academics his greatest strength. “My academics have helped not so much in sports, but helped me think of ways to help people and ways to solve problems,” he said. Alex plans to attend Iowa State University in the fall in the engineering program and is leaning toward the civil engineering field. “If that is the way I go, I would like to work with infrastructure,” he said. He said he feels privileged for getting this award. “I know a lot of others could have gotten it.”

SCHOOL BOARD: May 11 meeting FROM PAGE 1 Zephier approved for summer custodial help. The board accepted the bid from B&B Construction in Woodbine of $10,755 for hail damage repair work to buildings at the athletic field. The board approved the district continuing to participate in the Leadership

Academy. Laura Muxfeldt is the advisor for the program and will have six students attending camp this summer. A grant from Iowa West Foundation pays for half the cost of the Academy. The board approved the annual memorandum of understanding with Iowa Western Community College to provide college

credit classes for students. There were no changes from last year. An open enrollment request from Cody and Nicole Carritt for one kindergarten student from West Harrison to LoganMagnolia was approved. The board will hold a special meeting tentatively set for May 25 to set noncertified staff salary.

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.

Promises, pepto and pesos There are three things to remember when staying at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico. First and foremost: if you have multiple fruity drinks called Volcanoes you should expect (and deserve) to have eruptions of your own. Just because the food is “free” doesn’t mean you have to try one of everything and when you mix that with fruity drinks – you should learn how to say bathroom in Spanish before you ever leave America. And lastly: If your daughter says she wants a destination wedding in Mexico and you resist because traveling out of the country isn’t on your bucket list, go ahead, put on your sombrero and witness a ceremony that only fairytales are made of. On a cliff, jutting out over the ocean, I watched my daughter marry her best friend. I take back all the doubts that a foreign country could produce a wedding as well as I could. With nothing to do but show up, we enjoyed this special time with a backdrop that was just as beautiful as the bride. It was a strange, yet freeing, feeling to go through the days without a watch or cell phone and time seemed to move much slower when all you had to do was sit on the beach and watch the waves of the ocean. The resort offers plenty of activities from playing volleyball to learning how to salsa dance, although I spent most of my time just sitting in a stupor, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I did, however, agree to go snorkeling with my boyfriend and swallowed enough salt water for a lifetime. While he was under water watching fish, I was either emptying out water from inside my goggles or getting slapped upside the head by a wave. By the time we got to shore I had lost both of my contacts and had seaweed stuck between my toes. When he decided to take a swim with the dolphins, I was relieved that my oldest daughter agreed to go since I’m not interested in sharing water space with anything larger than a goldfish. Worrying about sharks wasn’t an issue although big black birds would swoop down and eat your leftovers right off the plate. I found they didn’t care much for the fruity drinks, unless they were topped off with a pineapple. We did leave the resort to go to the “market” where the atmosphere felt more like a carnival than a shopping experience. Vendors stood outside their shops shouting their goods and if you stopped to look at anything they instantly wanted to play let’s make a deal. I did make a few deals and left Mexico with bulging luggage. While the girls were at the market the guys went deepsea fishing. My boyfriend opted to go shopping instead and while they all made fun of him for hanging out with girls, he had the last laugh after hearing of their four-hour marathon of upchucking into the sea. One more thing to remember about Mexico: it takes a lot of pesos to buy Pepto.

Uncommon bravery Auto racing is one of our most dangerous sports. Drivers know that someone’s mistake can kill or injure them in a moment. They regard it as an acceptable risk for doing what they love. Crashes are part of their lives and they live with the risk. However, something extraordinary happened in 1973. Zandvoort hosted the Dutch Grand Prix in 1973 as it had many times before. British driver, Roger Williamson was competing in his second Formula 1 race. He had failed to finish his first race a week earlier because a multiple wreck took him out. Roger was driving a car owned by his friend Tom Wheatcroft who recognized his talent and foresaw a successful future for them both. The co-star of the unfolding drama was David Purley from central Britain. His name was a curious variation of my last name, which a genealogical publication known in the family as the “Perley Book” had noted. Moreover, his home was within 80 miles of several early ancestors. The chances of David’s being a relative are remote, but his name did attract my attention. In any event, David’s named played no part in what soon tran-

spired. He was a race car driver with as much talent, inexperience and ambition as Roger Williamson. David had been a paratrooper who saw action in Aden and liked the excitement of racing. The family business, Lec Refrigeration, sponsored his car. Like Warren, he had hope of future success in racing. The race began well, and Purley and Williamson’s cars drove together as they slowly worked their way up the pack. Roger’s car suddenly swerved to the left as a tire blew out. His car slammed into the barrio but some sections had been poorly secured in the sand. When Williams car struck the barrier, it bent backwards and sent the car back across the track. When it finally stopped flipping at the entrance to the next corner, it was upside down and a small fire had started. David Purley stopped his car immediately and ran to the aid of his countryman. The car was on its top and Roger could not get out. He was relatively uninjured and asked David to help him escape his damaged car. David ran toward some marshals and asked them to help him turn the car upright. No one helped, because unlike

Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist jperley@iowatelecom.net

David, they weren’t wearing flame retardant suits. One man tried to pull David away from the car. As the fire grew larger and sent a giant plume of smoke into the air, David desperately tried to flag down other drivers for help. None stopped because they assumed David had crashed and was trying to stop a fire in his own vehicle. A nearby fire truck could have arrived quickly, but instead of driving against the flow of traffic, the driver took a slow lap of the circuit. By the time he arrived it was too late. Spectators who tried to climb a fence and help Purley were beaten back by police Purley grabbed a fire extinguisher from the marshal’s truck and desperately tried to extinguish the flames. The fire died down and Purley alternated between using the fire extinguisher and trying to push the car upright. One or two marshals briefly tried to

help, but it was in vain. Nationwide television showed David’s sadness and frustration as even he conceded defeat. He had tried so hard to push the car upright that blood vessels in his arms ruptured. In a final act of callousness, race officials put a tarp over the car with Roger still inside. The car remained in place until the race ended. An investigation revealed Roger Williamson who was protected by his racing suit did not die by fire or other injuries. The smoke had smothered him. His country later presented Pauley with the George Medal, the highest civilian award for bravery. After Purley died in 1985, Williamson’s old friend Tom Wheatcroft commissioned a statue to commemorate his life. Several of Purley’s cards were also on display in a nearby museum to commemorate his uncommon bravery.

News from the Extension Service

Planting and pruning It appears the days from May 2-9 either tied or may have set a record for corn acreage planted in a week in Iowa. Harrison County certainly was among the leaders; my estimate was about three-fourths of our corn acreage planted in those seven days. That gets us back on track. The unseasonably warm start to the week also resulted in corn emergence in many fields. By my mind, we are positioned about as well as can be now for mid-May. The eastern Cornbelt has been deluged and planting has been delayed there, and west of us there are drought issues. We obviously have a long way to go, but so far so good. Black cutworm is an occasionally damaging pest to corn in Iowa. These insects do not winter in Iowa; instead, adults fly from their overwintering grounds near the Gulf of Mexico, and ride natural jet currents north to us. We use a network of traps that are baited with a sex attractant pheromone to determine when they arrive here. Assuming that they are

ready to lay eggs on arrival, we then can calculate when the developing larvae are large enough to cut corn and reduce stands based on the heat accumulated here. For Harrison and neighboring Counties, the likely date of first cutting is May 18/19. Black cutworms will not be uniform in every field, so that allows us to look for them by scouting young stands and plan if and when an insecticide treatment is appropriate. Last year, we had a black cutworm rarity here in the county. A few soybean fields in the Missouri bottoms near Modale suffered significant stand loss from black cutworm feeding. (Apparently these black cutworms failed to read the rules). There were a few other places where the damage was noted in 2010, but although not unheard of, it was unusual to have severe stand losses from this pest. Another insect of potential note this year is the true armyworm. It too, flies in from the south each year, but is even less frequently an economic issue.

Lo-Ma Board of Education Second Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator Armyworms get their name because they tend to feed gregariously (big bunches moving like an army, en masse). I am mentioning the armyworms, because several states south and east of there have reported large numbers. So be a bit on the lookout for these in fields that are particularly prone to armyworms feeding, primarily in fields either with or next to one with a flush of grassy weeds or winter rye, etc. That early grass can attract the moths to lay eggs that then hatch and the larvae start feeding. If the grass is then killed by a herbicide treatment, the larvae have nothing else to eat but the emerging crop plants. Armyworm larvae have distinctive black

markings on four of their fleshy prolegs (the paired legs toward the back of the caterpillar). If you have a question, let us know. Finally, Plant Pathologist Alison Robertson has a request from farmers across Iowa. If you have a soybean field that develops damping off (the young plants wilt and die either at or just before emergence) let me know. Damping off usually occurs in damp to wet areas of fields. She is collecting samples for a multistate project to study the fungi that cause the disease. For additional information contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension Office at ropope@iastate.edu or 644-2105.

Open positions for SW8 director/council boards Southwest 8 Senior Services, Inc., the Area Agency on Aging for the eight southwest counties of Iowa, presently has openings for its board of directors, called the policy board. The policy board is the governing body for the agency and is comprised of one individual from each of the eight counties in the service area of Cass, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie and Shelby. A majority of the policy board must be 60 years of age or older (although any individual who cares about senior citizens is welcome to apply), and individuals must be a resident of the county they represent. The policy board meets from 9:30 to approximately noon, the fourth Wednesday of each month, at the office in Council Bluffs. Seats are held for two years terms. The counties with open seats this year are Pottawattamie, Mills, Fremont and Page. If you are interested in making decisions that

affect and help seniors in the community, or if you reside in one of these counties and you’d just like to get involved, consider joining the policy board. In addition to the policy board, there are positions open in each of the above listed eight counties for seats on the Southwest 8 Senior Services’ Advisory Council. The advisory council makes recommendations for policy to the policy board that enacts them. Criteria for the advisory council is the same as listed above in that the majority of the membership must be age 60 and older (those under age 60 are welcome) and individuals must be a resident of the county they represent.

New signage coming for Lincoln Heritage Byway Signs for the Iowa Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway are ready to begin installing across the state. The signs consist of 956 main route signs and 188 byway loop signs for a total of 1,144 byway installations. In addition, there are 566 auxiliary signs, such as directional arrows, accompanying the route signs. The process of placing signs on the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway will proceed west from Ames along the byway route to Council Bluffs. According to officials,

starting placement of the signs in a centralized location close to the Iowa Department of Transportation allows crews to more efficiently deal with placement issues early in the process. Sign placement is expected to take two months and could be done as early as the first week of June. The signage project is part of a grant from the National Scenic Byways Program that brought federal funds of $580,000 to Iowa. Signage for all the byways is expected to be completed this year.

Summer at Willow Lake By Scott Nelson, Director The summer recreation season is fast approaching and soon people will be descending upon Willow Lake for camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing and swimming. With gas prices continuing to escalate, we are anticipating a record year for visitation. One of the management plans for the staff at Willow Lake is to ensure the qualify of the lake water and to do everything possible to make fishing the best it can be. Over the past 10 years, nearly 2,000 feet of rock has been placed on the shorelines to protect against erosion and to provide shelter for small fish. Pea gravel spawning bed, a summer aeration system and three jetties have also been added to provide a quality fishing experience. Now we are pressed with yet another endeavor: Brittle Niad. This is an invasive exotic species of aquatic plant. Its origins are from Europe and it was brought to the United States in the late 1800’s to be used in water gardens. But, like most introduced species, it

has become a huge problem. It has been found in Willow lake as well as other area lakes in the past couple of years. “It is important to remind people to remove all vegetation from their boats and trailers before leaving, and to drain the water from all live wells before leaving Willow Lake this summer,” said Brian Hays, Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Biologist. “This will help prevent the spread of exotic species like brittle niad.” Brittle niad will grow in water up to 15-feet deep and will mat out the surface of the water. It will also outcompete the native vegetation and make it very difficult to fish from the shoreline and from boats. Because of these reasons, the Harrison County Conservation Board, along with the IDNR Fisheries has determined that we need to get a handle on the situation…and soon. The plan is to chemically treat the lake in June and followup spot treatments in the following years. The chemi-

cal to be used is called Sonar, and according to the label, is harmless to fish and people. It will be applied at an extremely law rate: 15 parts per billion. The chemical and the application cost will all be covered by the IDNR Aquatic Nuisance Species Program. “Managing around and treating aquatic nuisance species is time consuming and costly. Brittle niad can potentially interfere with fishing and boating at a lake if left untreated,” Hays said. “Since it is a non-native plant that grows from a seed source, there is very little seed laying dormant on the sediment. This year’ treatment will take place before seeds are set, with the hopes that over multiple years, this exotic plant can be eliminated from Willow Lake.” Signs will be posted in all the information booths at the park, educating users that the lake will be safe during this process. Staff will be able to answer any questions you may have. We hope you enjoy the great things Willow Lake has to offer.

Loess Hills seminar June 3-5 The 35th annual Loess Hills Prairie Seminar titled, “Prairie!” will be held at the Loess Hills Wildlife Management Area near Onawa and at West Monona High School in Onawa the evening of June 3 through noon on June 5. The seminar is for all community members including families, educators and students of all ages.

Special programs for children will allow parents to fully participate in the field sessions and indoor evening programs. Some field sessions are located at the campground, while others involve a walk, hike or drive. Educators can earn credit if they pre-register through Northwest AEA. This is offered at a special reduced rate and the seminar registration fee is waived.

Field sessions will focus on native flora and fauna, photography, cultural history, Native Americans, geology, environmental writing and prairie restoration and management. Participants select from several sessions offered concurrently. The seminar is held indoors if weather conditions require. The evening programs at the high school offer a variety of topics for adults and children separately and are followed at the campground/seminar site with campfire programs – storytelling on Friday evening and a sing-along Saturday evening. The featured speaker Friday evening is Connie Mutel, author of Fragile Giants. An optional pre-seminar work session called G.R.A.S.S. is held annually on the morning of the first day of the seminar. Registration is due by May 26. Fees are low and further reduced for stu-

dents, educators, families and first-time attendees. Meals can be optionally purchased and must be ordered when registering.

The second season of the “Welcome Center Farmers Market” is set to begin from 3:30 to 6 p.m., May 19 at the Harrison County Historical Village/Welcome Center on Highway 30. So far, eight vendors have committed to share their home-grown, homemade or hand-crafted items during the 2011 Welcome Center Farmers Market. In addition to an assortment of fresh produce, vendors will be offering bedding plants and flowers, herbs, artisan goat cheese, lavender, eggs, baked goods, jams, jellies, fudge, honey, soaps and lotions and a variety of crafts. Three of the vendors are certified under the 2011 Iowa Farmers Market Senior Nutrition and WIC Cash Value Voucher program and will be accepting those vouchers. “We are excited to host another year of the farmers market and to be starting a month earlier than last year,” said Kathy Dirks, Coordinator of the village/welcome center. “And

even though a couple of our vendors may not be able to join us for the first market or two, due to the amount of produce they have ready and/or family obligations, I think everyone will be pleased with the wide variety of products available from our vendors.” Free special events are once again being planned for numerous market Thursdays throughout the season. Some of the events scheduled so far include a program on herbs, a grilling demonstration, as well as the return of the watermelon seed spitting contest. No special event is planned for the very first market. However, watch the newspaper or visit Harrison County Iowa Welcome Center’s Facebook page for additional information on upcoming market Thursday events. For more information on the market and how you can participate contact Dirks at 712-642-2114 or email kdirks@harrisoncountyparks.org.

The Logan Cemetery Association annual meeting was held March 30 at the Logan Community Center. Attending were president Chris Hartwig; treasurer Shelley Foutch; secretary, Patricia Esser and board members Gail Dickinson and Layne Clark. Absent were vice president, Robert Harvey and board members Alve Feige, John Espenmiller, Kris Beckner and Carl Hughes. The minutes were read and approved. Treasurer Shelley Foutch presented a report on the cemetery association’s financial status. Most of the current funds held by the association are endowed funds and only the interest can be used. Current interest rates are low and the available funds are limited. The board discussed ways to raise money for use in maintaining the cemetery. Treasurer’s report was approved. Nifty Lawn Service requested a four-year contract for mowing the cemetery to lock in the price.

The board decided to offer a two-year contract. Nifty Lawn Service has been spraying in the fall and spring for weed and crab grass control. Progress is being made in controlling weeds and crab grass. Nifty Lawn Service has requested a four-year contract for spraying. The board decided to offer a one or two-year contract. Election of 2011 officers was postponed due to the number of members absent. Foutch signed the certification book allowing her to be a member for another three years. Hartwig moved to add Tom Schwertly Jr. as a board member. It was agreed that Schwertley would become a member contingent on a check of the by laws for the committee as to the allowable number of members. Some trees suffered damage during the winter and the recent hailstorm and will need to be trimmed or removed this summer. Ryan Nordby and the Masonic Lodge have volunteered their time to help.

and Clark will work out the details. Foutch is looking into the cost of repairing/replacing the fence. Hartwig will look into the possibility of a grant to help cover the cost. Dirt has been moved onto some settled graves. There are several fallen headstones. Hartwig is looking into what needs to be done to repair the stones. Hartwig installed “no dumping” signs at the north end of the cemetery last April. Two of the signs have disappeared. Hartwig will look into replacing them. Logan Memorial Chapel will maintain some of the cemetery records to help people find graves at the cemetery. Most of the records are currently in Hartwig’s office. They need to be sorted and organized. Help will be needed to do this during the summer. All flowers put in the cemetery for Memorial Day should be removed within two weeks. Hartwig motioned to adjourn, seconded by Foutch. Meeting adjourned.

News from the Harrison County Landfill Dan Barry HCLC Solid Waste Manager With the arrival of nice weather, Harrison County residents want to get into the “spring cleaning” mode. We want to remind residents what recycling services are provided by the Harrison County Landfill Facility to help them in their spring cleaning efforts. Tire Disposal: Tires are accepted at the landfill for recycling purposes. Tires have been banned from burial in Iowa landfills since 1989. The tires are taken to a recycle facility, where they are shredded and used in a

recycling. The oil and antifreeze must be delivered in containers that are 5 gallon or less, so they can be transferred to our larger storage containers. Appliance Disposal: Appliances are accepted at the landfill so they can be demanufactured per the Iowa Department of Natural Resources’ regulations before the scrap metal companies can process them. Freon appliances and nonFreon appliances are kept in separate areas as we work with two different recycling companies for these items. The Freon appliance disposal fee is $15 each:

variety of recycling methods. We accept tires, at a disposal fee of $0.75/lb., which is our cost for having them sent away for recycling. There is a minimum charge fee of $2 for one tire. Two or more tires average about $2 per tire for car and pickup tires. The tires must be delivered to the landfill off the rim, as the recycling company will not take them if they are still mounted. Oil, Antifreeze, 12V Batteries: The landfill will accept these items free of charge from residents. We have recycling companies which will come and get these products from us for

Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, de-humidifiers. The non-freon appliance disposal fee is $12 each: Furnaces, hot water heaters, washers, dryers, stoves, microwaves, dish washers, trash compactors, florescent light fixtures. TVs, Computers, Electronics: E-waste material is accepted at the landfill for recycling purposes. These items are taken to a recycle facility and, like tires, we only collect our disposal fees which we pay to the recycling company. Pricing per unit/price are as follows: Computers and TVs up to 25 inch screens, $10

each; TVs with 26-40 inch screens, $20 each; TVs with 41 inch or larger screens, $30 each; console TVs (wood issues), $30 each; Miscellaneous E-waste items, $5 each. Household Hazardous Waste Disposal: There are a large number of items which fall into this category of material. The landfill facility is an HHW satellite site, for the Metro Waste Authority RCC in Bondurant. As an HHW satellite site, we are able to accept HHW from our residents free of charge. Businesses can deliver these materials to us with nominal disposal fees after complet-

ing the required paperwork. Residents can deliver the following items, after calling the landfill and setting up an appointment: Stains/varnishes, paint removers, thinners, gas, kerosene, drain/oven cleaners, aerosol cans, metal polishes, rust removers, oil and lead based paint, ammonia based cleaners, petroleum based adhesives, rechargeable batteries, glues, caulk, fertilizers, contact cements, pesticides, weed killers, florescent light bulbs, sharps. None of these listed items can be put into your trash. These items must be sent to Bondurant for proper disposal.

Lady Panthers win district championship Ed Adair For the Herald-Observer A trip back to familiar ground May 12 proved to be a great day for coach Gene Esser and the Lady Panthers. A day that started with 80-degree weather was followed up with two rain delays and ended the night reminiscent of winter cold and Lo-Ma bringing home the Iowa Class 2A District 6 championship. It took sold effort from the entire team as the Panthers scored 101 points to win the championship and hold off IKMManning who finished second with 92.5 points. “I started adding the points up after the 200meter dash and knew we had a really good chance to win the team title,” said Esser. “IKM was going to be tough to be beat, but we did really well tonight.” Leading the way for the Panthers was Alex Gochenour who won four individual titles. Gochenour won the 100meter dash in a time of 12:25, placed first in the 100-meter hurdles in 13:97, stunned the crowd with a 25:30 second time in winning the 200-meter dash and rounded out the night with a victory in the 400meter hurdles winning in one minute and three seconds. Gochenour’s winning times in all four events were the best qualifying times heading into the Iowa Class 2A state meet. Right behind Gochenour was Karen Hutson with second place finishes in the 100-meter dash, 100-meter hurdles and the 400-meter hurdles. Hutson won the long jump with a leap of 17-feet 11.75-inches, which was also the best qualifying jump in Iowa Class 2A Sophomore Kendra Holcomb earned a seventh place medal and added two team points in the 3000meter run. Freshman Haley Whisney ended her season on a high note with a fifth place finish in the 1500 meter run. Another bright spot on the night was a sev-

enth place finish by Monica Lambertsen in the 200meter dash. Lo-Ma’s shuttle hurdle relay team of Fender, Ingham, Jones and Lambertsen added four team points with a fifth place finish. In the throwing events, Loftus finished second with a toss of 36-feet 3.5-inches. Loftus and Carrie Charbonneau scored points in the discus with throws of 111-feet 10-inches and 101-feet 2-inches, placing third and eighth respectively. Charbonneau’s throw in the discus was a personal best. Along with winning the district meet, LoganMagnolia advances three girls to the Iowa Class 2A meet: Alex Gochenour, Karen Hutson and Kylee Loftus. “We had a lot of good performances tonight and Lambertsen and Charbonneau came really close to qualifying for state as well,” said Esser. “I’m real proud of these kids.” The Iowa State Track Meet will be held May 1921 at Drake University in Des Moines. As the 2011 track season winds down, the LoganMagnolia Lady Panthers added a couple more achievements to an already successful season. The Panther’s brought the show home on May 5 at the Lo-Ma co-ed meet. Kylee Loftus started the meet off in record fashion as her second throw in the shot put broke the school record and bettered the mark on her third throw breaking the meet record with a toss of 38-feet .02inches. This distance sits Loftus in the number nine spot in Iowa Class 2A. Loftus and teammate Carrie Charbonneau teamed up for a 1-2 finish in the discus throw giving the Panthers 18 team points in that event. Rounding out the field events, Maysen Jones added six team points with a third place finish in the long jump. On the track, Kendra Holcomb and Hayley Whisney ran to success in the 1500 and 3000 meter runs. Holcomb won both

In the 200-meter dash, Monica Lambertsen ran away from the field winning the event in 29.58 seconds. Kia Fender added six more points for the Panthers with a third place finish in the 100-meter hurdles. Alex Gochenour broke the one minute barrier again this season in the 400-meter dash winning in a time of 59:14. In the relays, Lo-Ma’s sprint medley team of Fender, Emily Dickinson, Gochenour and Karen Hutson smoked the field as the foursome won the event in a time of 1:56. The shuttle hurdle squad of Fender, Jessica Ingham, Hutson and Lambertsen also added a victory in the event beating Boyer Valley by one-tenth of a second for the gold. The Panthers placed second at their home meet with 148 points, just 10 points behind winner Woodbine. “We had a good day today,” said coach Gene Esser. “We mixed up some of the running events and let the girls run a few different events that they normally don’t run in. I look at this as a tune-up heading into districts.”

Cheyenne Jensen sets a personal best in the shot put at district track.

STATE TRACK QUALIFIERS

For the Herald-Observer The Panther’s wrapped up their regular track season with an eighth place finish at the District 7 Class 2A meet. Winning the meet was South Central Calhoun with 129 points, followed by runner up Jefferson-Scranton with 107.5 points. Lo-Ma finished with 39.5 points. Leading the way for the Panthers was senior Levi Ettleman who scored 16 team points. Ettleman won the title in the shot put with a throw of 52-feet 6.5-inches. With the win, Ettleman automatically qualified for the Iowa State Track meet in Des Moines. Ettleman also added two sixth place finishes in the high jump and discus. Nate Fender gave the Panthers eight team points by placing fifth in both the 200-meter and 400-meter dash. Fender’s time of 23:67 seconds in the 200-meter just missed qualifying him for the state track meet. Quin Mann was right behind Fender in the 200meter dash, coming in eighth place with a time of 24:51 seconds. J.J. Decker placed sixth in the 400meter hurdles in a time of 1:00.80, that was good for three team points. Paul Hutson also added three team points with his sixth place finish in the 110-

That placement was good enough to give Lo-Ma 1.5 team points. In the relays, Lo-Ma placed in the 4x100 meter relay, 4x800 meter relay and the shuttle hurdle relay. The 4x100 relay team of Fender, Hutson, Mann and Evan Mikels won heat two of the event in the time of 47:94. This was good enough for an overall finish of seventh place. The 4x800 meter relay team of E.J. Darnell, Grady Killpack, Ethan Pitt and Joel Pixley finished in eighth place. Lo-Ma’s shuttle hurdle relay team of Hutson, Mann, Mikels and Decker finished in fourth place out of 12 teams.
