Main Street-Chamber ‘Maintaining Momentum in 2011” NIKKI DAVIS Editor The Woodbine Main Street-Chamber plans on “Maintaining Momentum” in 2011 and would like to share their accomplishments and plans with the public at the third Annual Dinner and Community Update slated for March 25 at Shadow Valley Golf Course. “This annual celebration is meant to inform the community of what

has been achieved, will be achieved and to thank everyone for all the support through volunteer hours and financially. It is a celebration of our community,” Woodbine Main StreetChamber President Lynn Clark said. “This isn’t just about the businesses – it is about Woodbine.” The evening will begin with social hour at 5:30 p.m. Plastic, stadium-style, collectable cups will be available at

Seating for dinner will begin at 6 p.m. with pork chops or fish as the main course. After seated, attendees will be given the opportunity to make “heads or tails” of their collector’s cups before beginning dinner. The Main StreetSee CHAMBER Page 6

Editorial Bringing back memories...


Woodbine’s new meeting place


pring is in the air which means graduation is not far away. Woodbine’s schools will provide the community and country with a new crop of well educated American citizens, ready to work and serve. So what does that have to do with our new meeting place? The Main Street Station is now done and ready to use. A beautiful facility with kitchen and restrooms, it is the perfect spot for those upcoming graduation parties. Just $40 gets you three hours of use, and its just $10 an hour after that. Some dates are already booked, so call the Main Street Office at 647-3434 to reserve. But the Main Street Station was planned for other uses as well. Any non profit community group like the Boy or Girl Scouts, Optimists, Kiwanis or 4-H Clubs, can use the facility for free. What a great, centralized place to meet. Something Woodbine hasn’t had for a long time. If you haven’t seen it yet, stop by and have Deb show you around to see if it will fit your needs. The Main Street Station belongs to the community! In other news, the Main Street-Chamber Membership Drive is underway and nearing completion. We still want to reach out to individuals who want to support all the work that has gone on by joining the Main Street-Chamber. The applause and laughter you hear Friday night, March 25, will be the third Annual Main Street-Chamber Annual Meeting at Shadow Valley. Besides the fun, some surprises are planned so if you are unable to attend, watch the Twiner for a complete recap of the events.

YOU’VE GOT TO KEEP ON.................. One step won’t take you very far, you’ve got to keep walking, One word won’t tell them who you are, you’ve got to keep talking; An inch won’t make you very tall, you’ve got to keep on growing; One ad won’t do it all, you’ve got to keep them going. A constant drop of water wears away the hardest stone; By constant gnawing, Bowser masticates the toughest bone. The constant cooing lover carries off the blushing maid; And the constant advertiser is the one who gets the trade.

’m not sure if I’ve ever broached this subject in this column. If I never have, I believe this would be more than a pertinent time to do so. Between my freshman and sophomore years of high school, I was a Kellogg’s scholarship recipient. My dad worked (and retired) from there, and as daughters of an employee, my sister and I were eligible for a paid-in-full scholarship to spend a summer as a foreign exchange student. My sister tried to land a scholarship for two or three years – to no avail. Kellogg’s (did … not sure if they still do) annually sent one student from their Omaha, Neb. plant and one from their Michigan plant. So, naturally, more to spite my sister than anything who was a junior when I was a froshy, I filled out the application form. Looking back, I may have been a little too young. But the opportunity to best my sister was irresistible. My parents thought if my sister was never selected, my chances of securing the scholarship were slim to none. I filled the application form out without much thought or even consideration. I mean … how many freshman do you know pay attention to detail? The one thing I did put thought into was where I wanted to go … Australia. I never imagined in a million years that if I got accepted for the scholarship, I wouldn’t get my first choice. Therefore, I put little thought into my second and third choices. I picked two places at random, handed the application to my dad and called it good. Well, much to my sister, mother and father’s surprise, I received a letter stating I had won Kellogg’s Abroad scholarship and was going to be a foreign exchange student in the summer of 1993 … and I would have to attend a three day seminar in San Francisco to learn the customs and a few words before arriving in … in … in … Gifu, Japan. JAPAN? I don’t even remember putting that down as one of my choices! My parents were torn. I was young. Very young. I didn’t even have a driver’s license yet and they were facing the decision to load me onto an airplane and sending me half way across the world by myself. I, of course, being much as I am now (aka stubborn, bull headed and strong willed), argued tooth and nail that I was plenty old enough and could handle myself in any situation. I was allowed to go. I spent three months in Gifu Japan. I wore a school uniform and split toe socks. I wore a yukata during the River Festival and devoured “squid on a stick.” I was subjected to communal baths and chopsticks – both of which, after a time, became just part of my routine. I, who despise seafood, lived off of rice balls in my school lunch, of which the centers were made of pickled herring or pickled ginger and wrapped in seaweed. On more than one occasion, I ate “tako.” Don’t get any ideas. “Tako” means octopus. I watched a toilet appear


out of a wall once, at a rich friend’s house. I had to ask how to use it! I watched sushi prepared right in front of me. I drank coffee in the mornings. (Yes. As a soon to be sophomore.) While my classmates were learning to speak English, I was learning the same words in Japanese. I was learning parts of their three alphabets. I was learning their culture. Their history. It was amazing. And I stood out like a sore thumb. There’s nothing like being a blonde hair, blue eyed American in Japan. On several occasions, I actually had random people (and school friends), come up to me and just pluck out one of my hairs! OWWWWW! And then there was my earrings. I had double pierced ears at the time. My first day of school, the security guard stopped me at the gate as I rode my bike into the school (yes, with my school issued, mid-calf, blue pleated skirt on). I didn’t understand a word he said because he talked so fast. Then he started talking louder. Then I just started crying. Fortunately, my sister, Sachyan (Satchiko was her name) came to save me. I also have an embarrassing story regarding underclothing that I was wearing – but those my age didn’t – which became apparent one rainy day I rode that bike to school. And a million other stories and memories. Looking back, I realize I may have been too young. But looking back, its one experience of my childhood I would never give up. So the devastation in Japan is devastating me. Fukushima, where the nuclear plant let loose, is about five hours north of Gifu by Shinkansen (the bullet train) and commuter trains. As I watch footage of the devastation recently, I can only pray for those I see. My Otoosan (father) travelled frequently for his job. I began to think of him. And I thought of Okaasan (mother) and sitting at the road side fruit stand. I thought of Satchiko and wondered where she was … and then just prayed. As I think of all of this, flooded with memories … I don’t know what to say. I know it seems a world away, but please take a moment to say a prayer for our fellow man facing the unthinkable right now … your child might wind up as an exchange student there someday ...

Feeling blue ...?


ometimes it is tough being some plants. Well, when we look at some of our choices for landscape plants they aren’t always as good as they could be, and therefore, we wind up with high value plants that are set up for problems. A good example is the Colorado blue spruce. Colorado blue spruce trees are native to The Rocky Mountains, New York and Pennsylvania – mountainous areas – but not Iowa. In their native areas, soils tend to be cool and well drained. In many ways, it is tough to find a prettier conifer, with the tight pyramidal growth habit, the dense needles with the variable blue coloring. And they do establish well for the most part. But they come with a few downsides. Quite often across Iowa, owners have noticed the decline of Colorado blue spruce trees. Typically it is one or two trees that begin to show excessive browning or purpling of needles that takes out branches and often full trees. Several forces of nature

can cause this. The first is a disease of spruce called Rhizosphaera needle cast. This fungus infects the current year’s needles that then turn purple to brown and fall prematurely, leaving the inner part of the branch bare. As the disease progresses, whole branches die, “hollowing out” the tree. High humidity increases the development of the disease, and there are differences in resistance between individual trees that allow for some staying healthy longer. But even when a tree does not suffer from the causal Rhizospaera fungus, we have observed some Colorado blue spruce trees declining. It isn’t just one cause, but rather accumulated stresses that lead to the weakening and potential death of the tree. In the past 10-20 years particularly, we have had, for lack of a better word, interesting weather. Several years have seen cool and wet springs. And these cool and wet springs have stressed blue spruces, leading to damage to root systems.

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator Come summer when it gets dry, the root system’s ability to take up water is impaired, causing stress. Because the amount of root damage varies by local conditions from tree to tree, the symptoms of needle death and loss are extremely variable. So what do you do? To begin with, I would avoid planting the pretty Colorado blue spruce trees, even though they are popular and available. White spruce, Norway spruce or Black Hills spruce (actually a type of white spruce) are far better choices. These spruces have better resistance to Rhizospaera needle cast and do better in general. If you have established Colorado blue spruce, your task is to help them by reducing stresses. You cannot alter spring weather, so the next best task is to evaluate your

trees regularly, and provide water as the trees go into the summer and soils are dry. I am a fan of once a week watering, using several gallons under the drip line, depending on the size of the tree and the dryness of conditions. Also, remember that spruces and other conifers will continue respiring during the winter, so prepare them in the fall by thoroughly watering before the ground freezes. If you have questions or problem trees, bring a branch with dying needles (not all dead) to us at Extension, including a thorough description of the site and the plant’s history as you can get. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at or 712-644-2105.

The United States Department of Agriculture published “A Revised and Expanded Food Dollar Series - A better Understanding of Our Food Costs” that shows the farmers’ share of the food dollar is even less than originally thought. According to the report, just 11.6 cents of every dollar spent on food makes it back to the farmer. “Only a small percentage – 11.6 cents – of our food dollars actually pays for the production of the raw commodity itself,” chairman of the Iowa Corn Promotion Board and a farmer from Washington Dick Gallagher said. “I think it is easy to see that what you pay at the store has even less to do with the price of corn.” The USDA food dollar series measures annual expenditures by U.S. consumers on domestically produced food. The new food dollar replaces the old marketing bill series, which has been discontinued because of measurement problems and limited scope. The industry group’s series identifies the distribution of the food dollar among ten distinct food supply chain industry groups.

Main Street-Chamber ‘Maintaining Momentum in 2011”

2009 Chamber President Roger Kenkel at the “All Aboard” dinner and Pictured here is dessert auction table in 2010. Photo: Nikki Davis update. Photo: Nikki Davis

From CHAMBER Page 1 Chamber’s presentation will begin after everyone is seated for dinner. This year ’s theme, “ M a i n t a i n i n g Momentum in 2011” follows up 2009’s “All Aboard: Premiere Celebration of Woodbine Main Street” and 2010’s “Make It Count.” Next on the agenda will be the third annual dessert auction. For those unfamiliar with the event, approximately 30 dessert items are brought in to be auctioned off. Expected

items this year include: Kahlua Brownie Torte, White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake and Rolly Clark’s Baklava. In years past, desserts have fetched healthy prices such as Cristie Kenkel’s “Better Than Sex Cake” that brought in $450, Lois Anderson’s “Fudge Checkerboard Cake” that fetched $360 and Juli Cox’s “Praline Turtle Cake” which pulled in $210. “Without the amazing support the Woodbine Main StreetChamber has received

from our community, we would not have been able to accomplish all that we have,” Clark said. “We have a large number of projects coming up this year and that is why we need the continued support of our community to ‘Maintain the Momentum.’” Tickets are currently available at $15 per person or $120 to reserve a table for eight by calling the Main StreetChamber office at 6473434, Lynn Clark at 6473268 or Roger Kenkel at 647-3375.

JOOI: What it’s all about Boy Scout From JOOI Page 1 Harrison County residents and this past year we did a blanket drive. We would like to be on a three year rotation for around the holidays, so I am currently looking for more ideas for the group. After we secure a third idea, we’ll start the coat drive again.” Aside from the coat and blanket drive, the JOOI has also aided the Woodbine Optimists with the annual Halloween parade, Little League Wrestling Tournament and the highway clean up. They’ve helped serve during the annual Main Street-Chamber dinner and community update and have recently placed seed by the south entrance of Woodbine between the railroad tracks. “February was also JOOI’s reading month, so we got to read to the little kids,” Nuzum said. In order to remain involved in the group, members, currently sit-

ting at 20 this school year, also organize and host fundraisers. “The Junior Optimists host a dance each year for sixth, seventh and eighth graders,” Murdock said. “The Junior Optimsts does a school supply drive at the dance as well, to help raise school supplies for Woodbine Elementary students.” They have also held bake sales during junior high games and events to help raise funds. “All the kids have been a great help on every project we’ve done,” Murdock said. “They are a great bunch of kids to work with.” Current board members of the Woodbine branch of JOOI include Nuzum, vice president Mikey Barrett, treasurers Matt Waite and Kassidy Willis and secretaries Macenzie Hicks and Katie Payne. And despite who leaves after their eighth grade involvement, JOOI members know it’s not

the end of their community service opportunities. “There is technically an Optimist group for high school students, but we chose to start something in junior high because the high school already has Key Club,” Murdock said. “After eighth grade, I would encourage the students to join Key Club. And after high school, there is a college level Optimist group – or they may join the Woodbine Optimists or any other Optimist group in the community where they’re living.” Those eighth graders that won’t be able to participate next year, encourage their younger counterparts to join the group – for fun and to provide community service. “I think it’s fun and we help the community,” JOOI eighth grader Shelby Doyel said. “And it’s a great way for the community to see that junior high kids aren’t always, ‘bad.’ We may be

kids, but we are contributing to our community.” Nuzum agreed, adding that joining the group is a great way to have fun, help the community and keep out of trouble by staying busy and involved. “It’s something fun to do after school,” Nuzum said. At the end of the school year, the Woodbine Optimists add to the JOOI’s fun by treating their younger counterparts to a movie and a snack to reward them for their work and dedication throughout the year. “I plan on doing that again this year in May or June with the current kids,” Murdock said. “These really are a great bunch of students.” For more information on Woodbine’s JOOI, students may contact any of the current JOOI board members during school, or contact coordinator Carrie Murdock at 6472041 or CarrieM@

Woodbine Kiwanis Club From KIWANIS Page 1 betterment. The funds are gathered at two, major fundraising activities throughout the year, with primarily fundraiser being their Applefest pancake feed and their booth at the Applefest craft fair. They usually work in a second fundraiser – such as a soup supper or the like. They also collect during their weekly meetings at 7 a.m. on Tuesdays at the Golden Age Center. They collect ‘Happy Dollars,’ ‘Senior Citizen Money’ and hold a drawing. But there’s something important Woodbine community members should know about the collected funds. “We give it all away,” Woodbine Kiwanis Secretary Rebecca Flint said. “The drawing money, where people can win like a bag of candy, is sent quarterly to Kiwanis International to supply neonatal tetnis shots in countries that desperately need them. All the ‘Senior Citizen Money’ is given to the Golden Age Center and the ‘Happy Dollars,’ where you donate $1 to share your happy thoughts, are used for whatever we don’t have the money for in our budget.” The fundraising money, the primary source of that $6,000 budget, is spent annually on various community betterment activities, many of them focusing around the youth of Woodbine. Each year the organization: • Supplies two, $300 scholarships to a Woodbine High School

Key Club member in good standing • Takes any Woodbine fifth grader interested to a Storm Chaser’s (formerly the Royals) game in Omaha, Neb. in June • Organizes the fishing tournament at Willow Lake in conjunction with the State of Iowa’s annual ‘Free Fishing Day’ • Sends one boy to Boys’ State • Co-sponsors (with the American Legion Auxiliary) sending one girl to Girls’ State • Sends one child to Camp OK in Gretna, Neb. in the summer • Supplies Woodbine third graders with their own dictionary (which are personilzed with stickers and used in the class to look up the ‘Word of the Week’ in class) • Help Woodbine first graders clean Kiwanis Park (by the railroad tracks) in conjunction with Earth Day and supply them ice cream for their efforts • Purchase roses for the Woodbine homecoming queen Aside from the afore mentioned activities such as supporting the national idea of Tetnis shots and supporting the Golden Age Center, the organization has donated to Woodbine Community School’s mentoring program, TeamMates. They’ve given funds Boy and Cub Scouts and donated to Southwest Iowa Honor Marching Band students. Kiwanis also supports community members throughout the winter months by anonymously donating money to families in

need. Other anonymous donations are spread throughout the year. And more. “We encourage people to attend a meeting and just ask,” Flint said. “I can only think of one time we turned anyone down, and it was only due to the fact that it was not local.” Flint sighted the donation of Casey’s gift cards recently to the family of Angela Bush, a WCS student born with a heart defect whose family was having to travel to Lincoln for continued care. These matters are always discussed during their weekly meetings – but that’s not all the group discusses. The meetings themselves are focused around betterment and understanding of the community. Former guest speakers have included a wide array of individuals, such as Woodbine resident Nancy Foutch presenting on her trips overseas to Woodbine Community School Technology Teacher Shawna Harris discussing the importance of computer technology education in school to Harrison County Landfill Commissioner Dan Barry discussing how the landfill operates and recycling programs. “It’s very interesting,” Flint said. “You’d be amazed.” One program Flint remembers fondly is the visit of Senator Chuck Grassley on Nov. 10, 2010. “His office actually contacted us,” Flint recalled. “We had a great turn out for the

meeting that day. Kids from Dunlap even came.” But as time has marched on since 1947, the group has seen a declination in their membership numbers. Currently, that number sits around 20. That’s something they’d like to change. “As I say, ‘I am Woodbine.’ Being a member is having the drive to want to do something in the community,” Flint said. “I know we only have a $6,000 budget and that’s not a lot, and we’re struggling. We have the fewest members we’ve ever had and with the economy the way it is, it’s really hurt us. I was worried we’d have to cut back. I’d just like people to think of what this community would be like without us.” Annual membership fee is $90 – but true to what Flint said, $87 of that goes to the International organization who uses it for just causes, and $3 goes to the local group who will eventually give it away. Current board members include Don Groff and Phil Lubbers as copresidents, Flint, Rick Shanks, Scott Thompson, Sarah Cox, John Webb and Forrest Johnson. Anyone interested in becoming a member may contact Don Groff at 647-2828 or Rebecca Flint at 6473028. “We like to give it all away and it’s a fun group to belong to. We’re often mistaken as a senior organization – but we’re not,” Flint said. “We’re looking for members. We hope you’ll consider joining.”

Legals NRCS, Logan, offering assistance ISU offers ‘Eat to Compete’ Spring is one of the best times of the year to look over your farm to see how your conservation practices are performing. Many landowners in Harrison County have built terraces and installed grassed waterways to reduce water erosion. These practices can be big investments that can greatly benefit the farm and give your operation more flexibility on the cropping and tillage practices that are used. But these practices also need to be checked regularly. Before crops get planted and as the snow melts and frost

leaves the ground is an excellent time to inspect your practices for any maintenance concerns. Look for easily observable signs of erosion and maintenance issues which should be treated as soon as possible before turning into larger, more expensive problems. There are other farms that do not have structural practices. These farms may be using contouring, no-till, headlands and other management practices to reduce and control their water erosion. These farm operations should take this opportunity while they can see their ground eas-

ily to make sure they do not have any readily observable signs of erosion. The Natural Resources Conservation Service office in Logan has staff that can provide technical assistance to identify and offer alternatives for your erosion concerns or practice maintenance issues. Stop in at 2710 Hwy. 127, Logan, or call 712-6442210. The NRCS provides farmers free technical assistance to help their farms maintain maximum profitability while staying eligible for all USDA farm programs.

Helping young athletes make smart nutrition practices is the focus of a program from Iowa State University Extension for coaches, teachers and athletic directors. “Parents depend on teachers and coaches to give their players accurate information about training diets, supplements and fluids,” Nutrition and Health Program Specialist Barb Fuller said. “These sessions are designed to help coaches and others know what kind of advice they can offer.” The program includes information on training

diets, supplements, fluids, prevention of athletic injuries, eating disorders and current research presented by faculty in the Departments of Food Science and Human Nutrition and Kinesiology at ISU. The program, delivered as a webinar, is hosted by local extension and AEA offices. Throughout the program, activities will be facilitated by ISU Extension nutrition and health program specialists at each location. The program scheduled for June 7 and 8 and will be hosted at the following locations: Black Hawk

Solutions is not planning on updating the needed changes to the software and that’s why the Sheriff’s office is making the change. Messerschmidt Paul Messerschmidt met with the Board regarding drainage on his property along Ames Place. There is a ditch on his property that goes to the Missouri River, but it’s not draining properly. Mr. Messerschmidt is willing to help pay for the cost of dredging the ditch, along with another landowner, but the third landowner won’t contribute to the cost. Mr. Messerschmidt thinks that the road tube the county replaced on Boone Trail last fall is contributing to the increase in water on his property. Chairman Smith said that the tube was replaced with

the same diameter tube. Water naturally flows that direction and it’s not the County’s water causing this problem. Board member Utman said that the ditch is a private ditch and the county will not clean it out.

Sioux City Art Center celebrates new exhibition The Sioux City Art Center celebrates a beautiful new exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Andrew Langoussis. The exhibition, Andrew Langoussis: What Was, Is and Will Be, will remain on display through April 24. Much of Langoussis’ work has been inspired by his travels, particularly his many trips to Italy. While he loves the ambience and beauty of Italy, he has noted the unusual collision between the art and architecture of the past in a place that is quite modern. Some of the artworks by Langoussis bring together the subjects of earlier art historical periods, but places them in contemporary settings. For example, the painting Street Noise features an indoor setting that includes windows and mirrors reflecting everything from a representation of God by

out of the House Friday after long debates, one lasting from 2 to 11 p.m. “There were 101 amendments filed to the bill passed,” he said. “This is a very passionate issue for a lot of people. The intent of the bill is to create a level playing field between taxpayers and union management.” According to the reform passed out of the House and sent to the Senate, one of the requirements is that all state employees would be required to pay at least $100 per month for their health insurance. “That will bring in about $33 million to the state,” Windschitl said. It also created a free agent option. If an employee declined to join the union, he/she can use the free agent option and negotiate their own salary. But if the union members get an increase, that person would not get the benefits. Questions from the crowd included if the state planned to cut funding for 4-H programs, the concealed weapons legislation and information regarding the administrative rules and regulations committee. The legislative coffees are sponsored by the Logan Kiwanis Club and Logan Chamber of Commerce.
