Serious flood event projected to develop in Harrison County Residents warned to be prepared Mary Darling Editor Officials are warning of impending flooding in the Harrison County area and urging citizens in projected flood areas to move out and relocate. Iowa Governor Terry Branstad on June 2 issued a disaster proclamation for the counties of Harrison, Woodbury, Monona, Pottawattamie, Mills and Fremont, due to anticipated flooding. This process allows state resources to be used to prepare for, respond to and recover from effects of predicted flooding due to the release from reservoirs on the upper Missouri River. An estimated 1,000 resi-

dents packed into the West Harrison gymnasium June 2 to listen to Harrison County Emergency Management Director Larry Oliver warn of the potential flood disaster developing over the next week. “This potential is uncharted at this time,” Oliver said. “The levee system on the Missouri River has not been tested at these levels for this period of time. There is a potential for a very, very, serious event.” According to Oliver, Modale could see up to six feet of water covering the town, and it is projected the flood event will not be over SEE FLOOD Page 2

Lo-Ma wrestling coach Kent Kersten made the trip to his alma matter June 4 and was inducted into the Dakota State University Athletic Hall of Fame. Joe Carmody, a high school teacher of Kersten’s at Lo-Ma and Dakota State wrestling coach Dr. Neal Hattlestad, played key roles in Kersten attending the Madison, S.D. college and sending him on to a very successful Iowa high school wrestling career. “I first heard about the college from Carmody, who was a General Beadle (Dakota State) graduate and a Madison native,” Kersten said. Dakota State’s name came up again for Kersten in 1971 after he graduated from Creston Iowa Junior College. “My brother Kirk graduated that year from LoganMagnolia,” Kersten said. “Dr. Hattlestad asked him to make visit to Dakota State.

the Scout Council who in turn made a recommendation to the National office. “Few Scouts attain the rank of Eagle. To do so, a Scout must go ‘above and beyond’ those things expected,” Kill said. “Jacob took on additional responsibilities, proved his leadership abilities in several different roles, was a mentor to younger Scouts and exhibited the ideals of Scouting in his day-to-day contact with others.” Requirements to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout include: •Being active in the troop •Demonstrating that you live by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law in daily life •Earning a total of 21 merit badges •While a Life Scout serve actively for six months in a position of responsibility in the troop •While a Life Scout plan, develop and give leadership to others in a service project •Take part in a Scoutmaster conference •Successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review All requirements must be completed before a candidate’s 18th birthday. Winther’s Court of Honor was held April 10.

Winther has been involved in Scouting for 10 years. “It has taught me lots of useful skills that I will use for the rest of my life,” he said. “My parents helped with keeping me involved and that helped me get to where I am.” Winther said being involved in Scouting has helped teach him leadership skills as well as skills that could potentially save a life. “It has also helped me become a seasoned camper and outdoorsman,” he said. Winther advised boys involved in scouting to stick with it. “It will be tough, but in the long run it will be worth it because you learn so much. Most boys drop out when they get to junior high or high school because school is so busy but you can still be active in school and sports and still be a Scout,” Winther said. “Jacob has always exhibited innate leadership skills, ready to cheerfully do whatever was needed for the good of the group,” Kill said. “I’m proud of his decision to go the extra mile to become an Eagle Scout and to set an example for the others. To me, Jacob is the embodiment of an Eagle Scout.”

FLOODING: Projected for county

KERSTEN: DSU Hall of Fame FROM PAGE 1 Madison.” The next two years, Kersten wrestled for Hattlestad whose background included wrestling at the University of Northern Iowa, as well as his assist Jon Walczyk. “Kirk and I were both inspired by Hattlestad and Walczk,” said Kersten who considered himself to be an average wrestler back then. “They were both role models and great coaches. They worked us hard and wanted us to succeed. I learned a lot from Coach Hattlestad. I’d have to go a long way to find a better coach. I owe him and Dakota State a lot.” Kersten earned a biology teaching degree at Dakota State and used it

to get a teaching position at Arlington High School where he taught for three years. He then moved back to teach junior high science and coach wrestling at LoganMagnolia. Last spring he retired from teaching, but coached for his 30th season at Logan-Magnolia. This season Kersten’s team completed a perfect 32-0 dual season, along with claiming both Iowa’s state dual and team Class 1A titles. In 2008, LoganMagnolia was the state team champion and the school won another dual title in 2002. As head coach at LoMa, Kersten has achieved a 491-87-4 dual mark. He has also coached 129 state

qualifiers, 57 state placefinishers and four state champions. Kersten was the 2009 Iowa Class 1A Coach of the Year and in 2007 was inducted in the Iowa Wrestling Hall of Fame. Kersten and his wife Sandy have been married nearly 39 years. They have two daughters, Angela and Lanae. Angela, a first-grade teacher at North Loop, Neb., is married to Tony Boyce. They have two sons, Kaden, age 10 and Brendan age 7. Lanae is a nurse for West Harrison Community Schools in Mondamin. She is married to Matt Chase and they have a son Colben age 7 and daughter Campbell age 3.

in a short amount of time. “I’m hearing months, maybe through December,” Oliver said. The Red Cross is setting up shelters in Missouri Valley, Council Bluffs and Page County, Oliver said. Locations will be announced early this week. DeSoto Bend National Wildlife Refuge closed June 3 and as of June 4, the Modale Post Office closed with mail being forwarded to the Missouri Valley Post Office. Harrison County Sheriff Pat Sears said power will begin to be shut off to affected areas June 8. The Rural Electric Cooperative will disconnect power to the Clay substation on June 8. Customers were to be notified by mail and a phone answering service. REC plans to keep the Mondamin substation running as long as possible but there is a possibility of it also being shut down. All affect-

ed customers will be notified. Iowa State University advises anyone evacuating that has wells on their property to prepare them before they leave. If you have a frost pit or other below surface works, before you leave pull any pumps or electrical equipment that you can and store them well above projected flood levels. Disconnect electrical connections. Any fuel tanks also need to be anchored since they can be easily moved by flood waters. On June 2 the Iowa Department of Natural Resources closed all staterun boat ramps on the Missouri River and requested the U.S. Coast Guard suspend recreational boating on the river. DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge, was also closed to all public use June 2 as well. Logan City Administrator Angela Winther reported that if it becomes necessary the Logan Pool will work with

Missouri Valley to accommodate the Missouri Valley swim team for practices. The city council was to discuss plans for any potential flood issues at Monday’s meeting. In Missouri Valley there is parking available for vehicles, boats and campers at Longview Home. Contact Kelly, Chris or Julie at 712642-2264 and Dan or Becky Kougias at 402-517-1351 or 402-206-8725. The disaster proclamation by Branstad also triggered Iowa’s price gouging rule for those declared counties. Price gouging is considered an unfair practice under the Iowa Consumer Fraud Act. It covers water, food, medicines, sanitation supplies, utilities, lodging and materials, goods or services or cleanup repairs. Complaints should be called in to 1888-777-4590 or e-mailed to “There are so many unknowns,” Oliver said. “But the potential is there.”

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.

Dementia is taking my dad away from me I never prayed to stop it from happening, because I knew someday it would. I prayed for strength when the time came, even though I knew it wouldn’t stop the tears and heartache. He wasn’t sitting in his usual spot at the dining room table, cutting up boxes or watching birds. His clothes were messed up and the look in his eyes told me he was completely lost in his own home. “What are you doing, dad?” It seemed like an eternity before he answered. He was thinking as hard as he could, trying to remember who I was and what I was doing there. Through tears of either relief that I was there or the sadness of realizing that he had momentarily forgotten who I was, he simply said, “I don’t know where I am.” After a big bowl of ice cream and watching a rerun of “Bonanza” he returned to his “normal” self and announced it was time for me to go back to work. When I returned two hours later I was relieved to see through the door that he was at least sitting in his usual spot, until I actually got inside. With needle nose pliers in hand he was trying to pull out a back tooth. “Do you have a toothache?” I asked while secretly hiding the pliers. “No,” he answered through his finger that was not poking at the tooth. “Is there something stuck in your tooth?” At this point he started looking really annoyed and said, “What makes you think there’s anything wrong with my tooth?” The next day we made a trip to the dentist and full mouth of x-rays later found that even though several teeth had broken off (maybe by pliers, maybe because of age) there wasn’t any infection, yet anyway. The morning seems to offer him a fresh start and by late afternoon his mood begins to deteriorate and the more upset he gets, the more he becomes lost. I cry when he cries, and then I cry some more because I know the time has come to make decisions in dad’s best interest. This emotional roller coaster ride is exhausting. In the mornings when he’s at his best, I convince myself that he can stay in his home and then by evening, I’m in a panic for help. My guilt ranges from perhaps I waited too long to find dad more help than I can provide to beating myself up that I may break my promise to keep him in his home. For the first time in my life dad hugged me and said that he loved me, although I’m not sure he even knew I’m his daughter. I’m afraid that in my selfishness, wanting to be dad’s sole caregiver, I may have done more harm than good. Trying to distract him from his confusion, I got him set up to shave and I heard him tell the man in the mirror that the only thing he knows for certain is that he loves his daughter but he hasn’t seen her for years. I’m here dad, but I need for you to come back to me.

Heard but not seen Taylor Mitchell, 19, was a singer-song writer from Toronto and she was touring to promote her new album on the Canadian east coast. She took a break and was hiking solo in Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia in what should have been an uneventful day of relaxation. Several hikers had reported seeing some apparently fearless coyotes along the trail, but no one imagined they would attack a human. Hikers heard the noise and drove the coyotes away, but it was too late for Mitchell. She became a rare fatal victim of a coyote attack. Park rangers later shot the coyotes. A woman played Frisbee with her dog in a New York park when a coyote leapt out of the brush and jumped for her throat. Another joined it, but her dog helped drive the coyotes away. Later, she showed a television audience minor bite marks on her arm. Coyotes, like wolves, are essentially wild dogs. The extremely intelligent and adaptable animals will eat almost anything dead or alive. Coyotes mate for life, and like dogs, they are

loyal and used to hierarchical society. Coyotes cooperate for hunting and defense, and they communicate through howls and various forms of barking. Unlike wolves, coyotes have a special affinity for humans. If they are crossed with dogs, they make good pets and even purebred coyotes can be tamed if not domesticated. Pioneers’ first contact with the canine cousins became deadly as they shot the animals to protect their livestock. The larger wolves were nearly wiped out in some places and they retreated to isolated regions where contact with humans was rare. The smaller coyotes took another path. Like wolves, they learned to fear contact with humans. However, almost like house mice, they adapted and thrived in a human environment as they spread from their natural habitat in the western half of North America. Now, both the east coast and California cities are home to more coyotes than live in Harrison County. Lorna Bernard, spokeswoman for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, said, “They are scavengers as

Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist well as hunters, and they are very smart. When they learn that people aren’t a danger to them, they become very brazen.” Gordon Batcheller of the New York Department of Environmental Conservation said, “Coyotes are becoming habituated to humans and human environments and adapting their behavior to ours. From the coyote’s perspective, this human environment is a subsidized environment, with unusually high amounts of foods and an unnatural absence of threats.” Surveys show about the same number of pets taken by coyotes in Texas and in southern California cities, but attacks, mostly on children, are more numerous in California. Scientists now have a theory. Californians tend to regard coyotes almost like

inhabitants of their own wild life preserve. Some people even feed them and like to watch them as long as the animals don’t eat their pets. Attitudes are often anti-gun and hunting. “People in Texas don’t have a kind of Disney mentality. There may be more of a rancher mentality, where everybody recognizes that we don’t want coyotes in the neighborhood,” said a researcher. Another theory applying to eastern Canada and New England is coyotes have mixed with wolves to create a larger, more aggressive hybrid. In both regions, conservationists are determined to educate people to be sure that coyotes keep a healthy respect for humans. Because, as we know, a good coyote is one that is heard, but not seen.

News from the Extension Service

Of Floods and Things What a week. I was born in Missouri River Valley four months before the great flood of 1952. Throughout my lie, periodic reference to that great flood has been ongoing. I have heard stories and seen pictures that to me were unfathomable, yet they happened. I admit that in the past I have commented that I wish I had been old enough to actually remember some of the deluge but honestly I don’t wish it now. As of June 4, it sounds like it will potentially be awful this year. But I am buoyed (I know – a bad pun) by the cooperation, planning and work by citizens and communities. Though I haven’t been in Harrison County for too long, I have met some great people. In the last two days I have been around a few people who were literally brought to tears. It is a very human and very natural reaction. The potential flood IS an awful thing. Remember tears, and especially talking with one another seems trivial, but is a good baseline coping process. You have permission and even a right to that.

At the public meeting in Mondamin, the need for access to current local information was raised, particularly from those who do not (or will not) have access to the Internet. The various agencies that serve Harrison County have been communicating, and we are working hard to coordinate information and to provide access to current local information for the community. I believe that all of our webpages now have leading links to the best local source at the Harrison County Emergency Management Department. That Website is at: /Flood2011/information.h tml. **If you do not have access otherwise, call the Extension Office at 6442105 or walk in.** I am quite sure the other USDA and local agencies will also help as best we can. Community libraries are another potential access point. Also, let us know if you have any specific concerns that you cannot find an answer for otherwise. We will at least try to help, and your question may be relevant to others who

have similar questions. We are coordinating information among agencies and with communities and citizens, and are trying to help as best we can. And don’t be afraid to accept offers of help from friends and other who want to help. If the situation were reversed, your offer of help would be just as sincere. I hear many references about what happened here in Harrison County in 1952. Comments like “the water never got to us in 1952” or “we had XX feet in ‘52” are understandable. And they are useful…to a point. Remember that since ’52 there have been many changes in the valley. The river has been channelized, levees have been constructed, land has been leveled, five of the six mainstem Missouri River

reservoirs have been constructed and tributary stream channels altered, so comparisons should be made with a grain of salt. Not to mention that the ’52 struck in mid April and was dramatic and rapid, with water quickly rising and then subsiding in a matter of days. Current projections indicate that at least some of the potential floodwater this year may be here for much longer. Whatever happens in the next month or more, we will deal with and find success. Hopefully, I will be able to again miss out on bad flood memories in the Missouri River Valley. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension Office at or 644-2105.

This information is then available to determine any disaster benefits that may be eligible for disaster affected producers. Producers are reminded that acres prevented from being planted need to be reported to the Farm

Service Agency within 15 days of the final planting date. It is critical to report these acres timely to remain eligible for potential program benefits under the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program. The final date to timely report prevented planted acres is June 15 for corn and June 30 for soybeans. Prevented planted acres reported

more than 15 days after a crop’s final planting date require a farm visit to inspect the specific acreage. Late filed prevented planted claims may be subject to disapproval if the existence of eligible conditions cannot be verified.

By Dan Barry Harrison County Landfill Commission Manager This article is intended to inform everyone of the Harrison County Landfill Commission’s plan for recycling, should flooding issues in Harrison County become a reality. June 2, the 2011 recycling bins were pulled from the cities/towns Modale, Mondamin and Little Sioux, and brought back to the landfill facility until flooding issues rescind for those communities. In those three towns, floodwaters will damage the recycling bins and product or will become safety issues in trying to service them. I am communicating with the City of Missouri Valley and Crossroads of Western Iowa (recycle facility for Harrison County) in regards to the flooding issues that that

Missouri Valley is concentrating on. It is clear that should floodwaters reach the recycle facility, it will be closed for a period of time. Also, in anticipation of the floodwaters, the recycle facility may need to close in order to get the loose recycle product processed and baled before floodwaters reach the building. All of these issues are an unknown factor at this time and are being closely monitored by Crossroads of Western Iowa, City of Missouri Valley and the HCLC I have contacted the cities/towns regarding these issues and want the public to know that the recycling bins in all cities/towns may be pulled for a period of time.

Make the Right Moves with Inherited Stocks When you inherit a sizable amount of stocks, your overall financial picture can change significantly. But to make the most of your inheritance, you need to decide what to do with your new stocks. Should you keep them or sell them? Before you can answer this question, you need to review several factors, including the following: Diversification — You’ll need to determine if an inherited stock adds to your overall portfolio diversification. Do you already have other, similar stocks in your portfolio? If so, you might want to sell the stock and use the money for a new investment opportunity. Conversely, if you don’t own anything similar to the inherited stock, and it can help your diversify, it may well be worth keeping. While diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of market volatility. Fundamentals — It’s a good idea to closely scrutinize any stocks you inherited. Do they represent companies with strong management teams, good track records and competitive products or services? Or, as is sometimes the case, did

your benefactor simply keep these stocks because he or she had some type of attachment to them? You’ll want to own quality stocks for the right reasons. • Risk tolerance — An inherited stock may be either too aggressive or too conservative for your preferences. If the stock doesn’t fit within your risk tolerance, sell it and buy an investment that does. Taxes — When you inherit stocks, they are generally valued at their market value on the day your benefactor died, not the date of the original purchase. For example, if you inherit stock that your father bought for $20 a share, and it’s worth $75 a share on the day he dies, your “cost basis” would be $75 a share. If you sell the stock right away, you’ll likely owe little or no income taxes. If the price of the inherited stock goes up before you sell it, you’ll pay capital gains tax on the difference between $75 and the sale price, at a maximum rate of 15% (at least for 2011 and 2012), no matter how long you’ve held the stock. This is advantageous for you; typically, if you sell an appreciated stock that you’ve held less than a

year, you’d have to pay capital gains taxes at your normal income tax rate. If you inherit stocks as part of a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you’ll probably have to pay taxes on withdrawals at your income tax rate. However, you may be able to spread withdrawals over your lifetime, which could result in more tax-deferred growth and a greater income stream. And if you inherit a Roth IRA, you won’t have to pay income taxes on any withdrawals, provided the Roth IRA account has been open for at least five years. If you need help in determining what to do with inherited stocks, consult with your financial advisor and tax professional. After all, you are acquiring an important asset — and you want to make this asset work for you. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

FSA committee noms IWCC SBDC has help period begins June 15 for small businesses affected by 2011 floods The nomination period for this year’s County Committee election begins June 15, said USDA officials. John R. Whitaker, State Executive Director for Iowa said, “County Committees operate under official regulations for federal farm programs. Committee members apply their judgment, experience, and knowledge when making local decisions.” Individuals that serve on local FSA County Committee make decisions regarding producer’s appeals; commodity price support loans and payments; conservation programs; employing county executive directors; incentive, indemnity, and disaster payments for commodities; as well as for other farm disaster assistance. “The committee election process is designed to give all producers a better chance of having their opinions and ideas expressed in the community, throughout FSA and the nation. Therefore, it is vital that we have a diverse committee, not only in the physical make up of the committee, but making sure we have representatives from all forms of agriculture,” Whitaker said. USDA is committed to increasing the participation of all farmers on the FSA County Committees with an emphasis on women and minority farmers. Beginning farmers are also highly encouraged to become involved. Some of the requirements for becoming a candidate to serve on a County Committee include: Be of legal voting age; live in the LAA holding an election; participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA. Individuals may nominate themselves or others as candidates. Additionally, organizations representing minorities and women may nominate candidates. All nominees must sign nomination form FSA669A, which includes a statement that the nominee agrees to serve if elected. Form FSA-669A is available at USDA Service Centers and online at All nomination forms for the 2011 election must be postmarked or received in the local USDA Service Center by close of business Aug. 1.

But the Twiner won’t be going far. The newspaper is moving its offices two doors down to 503 Walker St., the newly renovated Whitmore building.

Several people in the Logan area have property in the Village of Big Lake, Mo., with warnings being issued. The flood situation continues in Big Lake, Mo., and may worsen. The Village of Big Lake Board of Trustees urges residents to take precautions and start moving possessions to a higher area and thinking about evacuating in the coming days as the river approaches 24-feet at Rulo, Neb. With the expectation for high river levels, be prepared to be out of your home for a long

period of time, officials said. Be sure to take essential items such as medicine, special foods, personal items, clothing, money and valuable papers. Make sure to take all pets and food with you when you leave. Officials urge you to secure your home before you leave and check on neighbors who may need assistance. If evacuation takes place the Village office will be located at Mound City in the Barnes Realty building at 18156 Hwy. 59. Office phone is 660442-3566; cell 816-2443892.

The current agenda was approved on a motion by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Allen Creek Project/Two Willow Creek Sites Due to the difficulties with the ownership and acquisition of the real estate easements associated with the construction of the Section 14 Project at Allen Creek southwest of Magnolia, Iowa, the Board terminated the Project Partnership Agreement with the Army Corp of Engineers and will use the $7,447 of the Allen Creek funding to meet the nonfederal share of the estimated costs of the two Willow Creek sites. Motion to amend the partnership agreement was made by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. L-16 Grading The low bid on the L16 grading project (STP-S-C043(66)-5E-43) was Steger Const.

Brush in R-O-W Engineer Stoner presented pictures of areas around the County where piles of brush have been pushed into the county’s right of ways.

Seig Drainage District The Board met as Trustees for the Seig Drainage District. They discussed the running of the pump in the District. After discussion, the Board determined to shut the pump off for one week and then reassess the situation. They felt that with the water table being high, the Missouri River being high and the expense of running the pump, that they needed to take a look to see if the pumping was beneficial. Rick Shearer, Shearer Contractors and Warren Christy will be notified of the Board’s decision. With business of the day completed, the Board adjourned until Thursday, May 5.

Beebeetown School In attendance included: Judson Frisk, Pat Sears, Ashley West, Deborah Peterson, Bob Darrah, Sondra Darrah, Jeromy Holeton and Caleb Wohlers. The Board asked for comments from the attendees.

Seig Drainage District In attendance included: Frank Salter, Charles Lindhorst, Mike Lindhorst, Alex Meyer, Larry Meyer, Nancy Myer, Jim Olinger and Warren Christy.
