Bexten Benefit While Hilde Bexten battles stage four cancer, her community rallies for her recovery. NIKKI DAVIS Editor Hilde Bexten, 54 of Woodbine, didn’t feel well last fall. Just a soar throat, she thought. Perhaps even residual effects of a prior thyroid surgery. So to the doctor she went. And she was treated. And treated. And treated. “Christy’s (Alegent Health Clinic, Woodbine, nurse practitioner) always been so good to me,” Hilde said. “But she just couldn’t figure out the scratchy throat and swollen gland.” The first thought was sinus trouble. Allergy medications and antibiotics were attempted. But, by winter, things weren’t looking better. Hilde noticed her speech was becoming slurred on top of the sore throat. Then, she noticed something strange.

“One morning I looked in my throat in the mirror,” she began, bewilderment still on her face as she recounted the story. “And I stick my tongue out and it veers to the left. It just wouldn’t go straight and it looks like a big lump in my throat and it scares me.” That’s when Hilde decided it was time to visit an ear, nose and throat specialist. She went the Monday after Easter of this year. The specialist, Hilde recalled, couldn’t see in her throat. So a biopsy was scheduled for that Friday. The news was about as bad as it could be. “They told me cancer,” she said. “Stage

four. And you know, there is no stage five. I didn’t know where to go from there.” But Hilde wasn’t going to wait. She received a referral from a nurse at UNMC for whom she had provided day care services for, and acted upon it. That’s how she found Dr. Bill Lydiatt. And got an appointment scheduled for the following Tuesday. “It was unheard of,” she said. “Getting in that quickly. Dr. Lydiatt is world wide known and wrote several books on head and neck cancers. It is hard to get in.” But she did get in. And Hilde began treatment for the stage four throat cancer on May 4. It was not an easy regiment for the 22-year long Woodbine daycare provider. “Dr. Lydiatt had me going to all sorts of different ways. To oncologists, for radiation,

chemo, dental checkups, speech pathologists …” Hilde trailed off. The radiation and chemotherapy was 35 days with only weekends off. It was seven, consecutive weeks, five days at a time. And slowly, the side effects began to show. “They said it and the doctors told me, but I didn’t believe them,” Hilde said, smiling a little. “They said, ‘You’ll need this,’ and I said, ‘It’s not going to happen.’ But it happened to me.” They told her she was going through the worst radiation possible plus the chemo. The radiation was potent. According to her doctors, it was supposed to be the most effective – but came with the worst side effects. “Going through it is like going to hell and back,” she admitted. “And I still have trouble See BEXTEN Page 6

WCS offering Veteran’s Day program Nov. 11 NIKKI DAVIS Editor Woodbine Community School is gearing up for their annual Veteran’s Day celebration to be held at 10 a.m. Nov. 11 in the old high school gymnasium. The program includes WCS kindergarten through 12th grade students and is open to the public. The Veteran’s Day program will open with the American Legion presenting the Colors, followed by the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance. This year’s speaker will feature 1997 Woodbine High School graduate Jason King. King joined the Iowa Army National Guard (based in Denison) in February of 1997. He was deployed to Kuwait in 2001 to support Operation Desert Spring. In 2003 he attended Officer Candidate School in Camp Dodge, being commissioned as a Second Lieutenant. Between 2004 and 2007, he participated in Rear Detachment Operations to support the 1-168th Infantry Battalion out of Council Bluffs and the 1133rd Infantry Battalion in Waterloo, as a training officer. By 2007, he was named a First Lieutenant and was deployed to Afghanistan as an Embedded Tactical Trainer, supporting and training the Afghan National Army. CPT King is now serving his country as a Rear Detachment Officer in Charge of the 1168th Infantry Battalion, supporting Task Force 168, managing the 10 garrisons belonging to the battalion and providing command guidance of the soldiers on the Rear Detachment while residing in Council Bluffs, with his 5-year-old daughter, Lileigh. Local veterans are also honored during the annual event, and WCS officials encourage area veterans to attend a lunch in their honor following the program. If planning on attending, the school asks veterans to contact Cindy Dickinson in the elementary See SCHOOL Page 6

“Overall, the H1N1 response in Harrison County was a success.” ~ HCHPH Director Nicole Carritt MARY DARLING For The Twiner Dealing with the 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak was a hectic time for Harrison County Home and Public Health last year, director Nicole Carritt reported at the Sept. 23 Board of Supervisors meeting. The office coordinated all of the vaccine ordering, shipping, allocations and inventory for Harrison County, with a total of 3,800 doses of H1N1 received. The agency provided 2,136 of these doses to the public through mass public vaccination clinics with the remaining 1,664 doses distributed to the four Alegent Health clinics, Community Memorial Hospital and the Burgess Dunlap clinic.

A fall drive in the Loess Hills brings out the natural beauty of the area. This photo taken at the Preparation Park scenic overlook shows the changing of the colors on display. The Preparation Canyon Unit of the Loess Hills State Forest, a total of 3,994 acres, is located north of the town of Pisgah. The overlook, constructed in 1997, provides visitors with a spectacular view of the forest and the Missouri River Bottomlands. Photo: Mary Darling MARY DARLING For The Twiner The fall season displays the Loess Hills in all its colorful splendor. The Loess Hills is unique as they were formed by strong winds causing silt to be left behind and accumulate into bluffs. In western Iowa, the bluffs are now covered by prairie and forest, with some areas privately owned and farmed. Located within the Loess Hills area you will find Preparation Canyon State Park, a

“A newspaper is a circulating library with high blood pressure.” ~Arthur Baer


From the desk of the Superintendent Enrollment All school districts in the state of Iowa certified their enrollment on Oct. 1. The Woodbine CSD certified an enrollment of 438.4 students to the state which will be the budget figure for next year. State aid is based on student enrollment so the Oct. 1 headcount is important to the budgets of all Iowa school districts. Woodbine’s certified enrollment of 438.4 students is an increase of 7.2 students from last year. This is a positive sign for the school district as a majority of school districts across the state will have enrollment decreases this year. The largest classes this year are the freshmen and sophomores with 39 students in each class. We welcomed 31 kindergarten students and our senior class has 33 members. School District Voters pass PPEL Renewal Vote On Sept. 14, voters went to the polls and passed the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy renewal with 82 percent voting “yes” to the measure. This will allow the school district to continue with the levy that was passed in 2002. This funding can be used for improvement of facilities and grounds, technology purchases, school vehicles and other general repairs needed for the facility. The PPEL is funded through a combination of property and income taxes. For the 2010-11 school year, this funding source will generate $157,793. Thanks to all who voted and your continued support of the Woodbine schools. School Board Elections in Odd-Numbered Years Only The state of Iowa changed the school board election laws a few years ago which allows school board elections to take place every two years. The next election for the school board will be in September of 2011. Please join me in thanking all the members of the current board for their dedicated service to the school district. School board members are President Joanna Shaw, Vice President Amy Sherer, and Todd Heistand, Amber Nelson and Mike Staben. We appreciate their positive support and commitment to Woodbine Community Schools. Thanks! We want to thank everyone for helping us with a great start to the school year. It’s hard to believe the first quarter is already over. We have had great crowds at all the fall events and hope you plan to continue that support during the winter activities. One of the most positive aspects of small schools is the amount of participation a student can get involved with through the activity program and it is always nice to see the bleachers full of spectators at the events.

Careful what you ask for


t wasn’t really intentional. Or maybe it was? I’m still debating with myself on that one. As soon as someone wins, I’ll let you know. I haven’t made it a secret that I was dissappointed when I found out I was having a little girl. I had dreams of a little boy. I’m not just talking about the fact that I wanted a little boy – I mean I was literally having dreams of a little boy. His name was Brayden Michael. However, I had my Eva instead. After finding out I was having a girl, I was convinced I was going to raise a tomboy. I didn’t want a girlie girl who was into dresses and jewelry. Nope. Not this girl. I wanted her to ride motorcycles, fish and hunt with her daddy, play football with the best of them and just generally be able to take a fall. I guess I should have been a little more careful when I asked for that. Anyone that has seen me with Princess Eva or listened to me talk about her will be able to tell you … she’s mine. She is one, big, mama’s girl. We play. In the mud puddles in the front yard. In the grass. We roll around in the leaves. We play with bugs – and really like fuzzy-wuzzy caterpillars. We like to pet the frogs in the yard and poke the dogs’ eyes. We pull the cat’s tail when he isn’t paying attention. And we go. Go. Go. Go. Go. If she falls, she’ll look back at you, and up she’ll go. Then away she’ll go. Princess Eva has already managed a gash on her eyebrow (probably should’ve taken her in for stitches on that one) and gotten a bloody lip. Neither my husband nor I were there for the eyebrow gash – but my mother told me, “She barely cried. The worst of it was getting the Band-Aid on it. She didn’t want to sit still!” (Well – there’s that and the fact the girl does NOT like Band-Aids. No doubt about it.) So when she falls down I carefully have to fight my urge to sprint to where she is and pick her up.


When she’s frustrated, I have to fight my urge to just go over there and do whatever it is for her. When she’s mad, I have to fight my urge to coddle her and bury her little, curly red head onto my shoulder. She makes these feats pretty easy. Because, even at 15 months, I can tell she’s a tomboy. She doesn’t want to snuggle. She doesn’t want to sit on my lap. She doesn’t want to be rocked to sleep. She doesn’t want to give hugs or kisses. Nope. Not mine. She wants to eat the crickets on the ground. Or, at the least, feed them to our dogs. She wants to pour milk on the dog to see what the dog will do. She wants to scale the toy shelves to see how high she can go. She wants to run as far as she can as fast as she can, then turn around to see if you’re keeping up. She wants to step on the frog then gets mad when it doesn’t jump. (Ummm, yes. That was gross.) She wants to color the side of the house with chalk. She wants to play ball with daddy. And I want her to sit on my lap so we can cuddle. I want to kiss her soft cheeks and play with her red curls. I want little baby kisses. I want hugs. I want her to follow me around the house. I want her to be lovey to our visitors. I want her to fall asleep next to me in bed so I can go tuck her in with a night-night kiss. I want her to be snuggly, cuddly and lovey. In short … I want a girl. Guess I should have been more careful what I asked for all those months ago.

The Indian summer awaits E O F or at least some parts of the county, we have now had our first killing frost or rather freeze. The National Weather Service describes frosts and freezes by different types, based on the minimum temperatures experienced. Plants have different abilities to survive cold, and, of course, the duration of a freezing event makes a difference. Here are some guidelines for west central Iowa average “firsts:” • First fall frost (36F min. temperature) – Sept. 24 • First fall freeze (32F min. temperature) – Oct. 4 • First fall hard freeze (28F temperature) – Oct. 11 This year in Harrison County, we are running almost exactly two weeks behind the normal. Climate normal values are based on a 30year average. Our first

36F temperatures occurred on Oct. 3 (33 degree low), and our first 32F morning was Oct. 17. And on Tuesday night, Oct. 28, we dropped below 28 degrees in some spots. Remember most climate markers are viewed as averages, and those averages are based on observations that include early and late events. At least this year, conditions in western Iowa have allowed for most crops to be harvested within the calendar year they grew. And on to Indian summer. Indian summer is a term that, at best, has a loose definition. To me, the best is, “Periods of relatively warm, clear and pleasant weather following the killing frost.” Although Indian summer has really little meaning, it correlates with some of the nicest weather of the year. Gone are most of the

bothersome insects and unpleasant mugginess of late summer, and here are the days to be out and comfortably do things in the yard and around the house to prepare for winter. Last week we gathered in an interesting late summer insect, perhaps extending her life an additional few weeks. The adult Chinese mantis is a 5-6 inch eating machine. Remember the movie “Jurassic Park?” This critter is an entomological T-Rex to all the crickets, beetles or even wasps that stray too close. Part of the Halloween-appropriate fun of watching her is her gruesome, yet fascinating, stalking and

pouncing on prey. She even invites the ubiquitous Asian lady beetles to lunch, of course, with them as the main course. Our mantis friend will live a little while with us, but eventually she will die this fall – the adults aren’t designed nor intended to live through the winter. Instead, she has, no doubt, left Styrofoamlike egg cases outside that will protect eggs over the winter and allow the offspring to emerge for a new generation next spring. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at or 712-644-2105.

Sports Middle School Lenz at State Championship

It’s been a while since the weather has decided to cooperate with Iowa’s State Cross Country Meet, but Oct. 30 did, allowing Woodbine’s lone runner, Ethan Lenz, near perfect weather to run the course in Fort Dodge. “I don’t remember too many beautiful days like that at the State Meet,” head coach Rod Smith said. Lenz tallied a 65th place finish with a time of 18:18 out of 128 runners from across the state. Probably not his best performance, Smith said, but an honor. “I think he was a little disappointed in his performance,” Smith said. “But being there alone – and with the quality of runners – he did pretty well. Ethan has accomplished

much in his career as a runner.” Smith pointed out his fourth place finish at State last year as part of a dominating cross country team and the fact he medaled at every meet this year, aside from the Atlantic and State meets. “And he was the only boy from Harrison County to qualify for State,” Smith said. “And one of only four boys from our conference to qualify for State.” It took more than luck for Lenz to make it that far. “His hard work has gotten him to this level, and, hopefully, the younger runners will realize that and follow his work ethic. His leadership will be missed next year,” Smith said. Ethan Lenz was the sole Woodbine competitor and lone Harrison County competitor to qualify for the State Cross Country meet Oct. 30. Lenz was one of only four in the district to qualify for the prestigious meet. He is pictured here on Sept. 28 at the Denison meet. Photo: Bill Maaske

Hilde Bexten Benefit slated for Nov. 6 From BEXTEN Page 1 from that.” But Hilde refused to let the cancer beat her, fighting it with all she had. “I knew someday it will be gone. Just beginning in October, I was feeling like I was coming alive again. That’s when I knew I was healing. I had all kinds of ideas from the stuff that they tell you. I always chose to go back to positive thinking and my faith.” She had family, friends and church surrounding her, and supporting her, helping push her back to that positive thinking. “I give glory to God for all I’ve gone through in a manner that was not devastating to me,” she said. “I was not fearful of death. I was not depressed. I would have to battle those thoughts, but my church family has been so supportive. That’s where my

strength is. My victory is. There’s a lot of hope.” Her friend Sherrie Erlbacher was always there to catch her. And Sherrie’s daughter, Jessika, was there to help with the daycare. That was just about as hard on her as the cancer treatments. Not seeing “her kids.” “I miss the kids terribly and the parents,” Hilde said, a sad smile on her face. “I’m glad these guys were able to run the day care for me. They stayed the rest of the summer and did all of the work and I’d lay on the couch and just hold the babies.” But Hilde refused to see only shades of gray, simply stating the simple things that she has brought through the devastation and pain with her. “You see despair and pain and I don’t think you’ve ever seen that in me,” she said. “But I’ve

met so many people – even at the hospital – that are so caring. They’re so loving and kind. And I’m thinking, if I never was in this I would have never met all these wonderful people. Awesome, wonderful people.” It was those people, the people that appeared during and after the trying treatments, that still leave Hilde in awe. “It was physically and emotional harder after the treatment than during,” she admitted. “I just wanted to die.” Her heart broke as she told the age old joke of husbands always wanting their wives to be quiet or stop talking. All her husband wanted was to hear her voice, as there were months where she couldn’t talk. “It was heart wrenching seeing people being hurt and injured by what you are going through,” she said. “But giving up

and letting go would hurt them more. So I keep going. Then people I don’t know write me cards. Someone tells someone else or someone comes to the door with food. This community has really been so kind to me. Reaching out to me and some of the people I don’t really know. I’ve been overwhelmed by the cards and flowers and what they’ve done for me. It’s so hard to receive.” Things are looking up for Hilde, though. After the intense treatments and continued therapies, she was told by Dr. Lydiatt she was ahead of her recovery schedule. By almost three months. In her own words, the news was, “Awesome.” And though it’s hard for her to receive, Hilde will soon find herself on the receiving end once more on Nov. 6. The Hilde Bexten Benefit will include din-

ner and an auction Nov. 6 at Shadow Valley Golf Course, Woodbine. A free-will spaghetti dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. and be followed by a dessert auction following at 6:45 p.m. A live auction will follow the desserts and raffle items will be given away all evening. Raffle items include gift certificates and smaller items, and some auction items include a John Deere tricycle, a garage door and opener, hockey tickets, themed gift baskets and more. A Samson, 42 inch, plasma, high definition TV will be raffled off with tickets costing $10 for one chance or $25 for three. Tickets are currently available. Event organizers are still seeking more items for the auction which may be dropped off at the Harrison County REC or the Hair Zone in Woodbine. Farmers Trust and

Savings Bank in Woodbine has an account set up for monetary donations and may be reached at 647-3375. Co-organizers, Sherrie Erlbacher, 6473375, and Rebecca Blum, 592-0548, are willing to pick up items or answer questions. And Hilde already has goals for after the benefit – aside from beating the cancer. They are goals she believes the community has already helped her achieve. “I’m going back to daycare. I have parents waiting for my services. I might be closed for the rest of the year, but maybe I need to relax and allow this to happen,” Hilde said. “But when a tragedy hits a small community like this, people get involved. They really care. And that’s where I feel overwhelmed. I’ve met all these wonderful people.”

Time to ‘Fall’ into the Loess Hills WCS Veteran’s

Day program

The colors of the Loess Hills State Forest continue to change as the seasons prepare to change from fall to winter. The Loess Hills offer a variety of sight seeting and hiking opportunites. Photo: Mary Darling From HILLS Page 1 acres, is located north of Pisgah. It includes a small lake and an overlook of the scenic area. • The Pisgah Unit, 2,549 acres, is located east of Pisgah. This is where you will find the Loess Hills State Forest headquarters and visitor center, located two blocks west of State Highway 183 at 206 Polk St. For current hours at the visitors’ center call 712-456-2924. At the visitor center you will find a variety of interesting facts about the state forest, artwork from the Fragile Giants display, a hills diorama, a topographic display, a soil discovery display, tree identification wheel, a wildlife tracks display, forest management information, physical features of the hills, a bobcat dis-

play and a video about the Loess Hills. • The Mondamin Unit, 1,096 acres, is east of Mondamin, three miles on Highway 127. The forest is open to hunting except for areas within 200 yards of residences and the headquarters area. It is also a great place to hike, nature study and, in the winter, for cross-country skiing. The Loess Hills State Forest is managed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources with area forester Brent Olson responsible for the administration and management of the area. Olson said the reasons bringing people out to the area vary widely. “Some have heard of the overlook in Preparation Park and want to go there. Some

want to go on the hiking trails and are coming out to learn more about the hills themselves and how they were formed,” Olson said. There are a couple designated hiking trails at the present time and they are working at adding some more, Olson said. “I had 30 through just yesterday and there were 60 over the weekend and that is just from 1 to 4 p.m.,” Olson sad. “In the last five years there has been an increase in motorcycle clubs coming out riding the scenic byways.” As far as where visitors are coming from, Olson said, “All over.” “I’ve had some from Delaware, Washington, Arizona, Texas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa,” he

said. “A couple of the guys from Michigan have been coming out for about the past 15 years. They got stuck one year and our guys helped them out and they have been coming back ever since. They just fell in love with the area.” He had a lady from eastern Iowa tell him she finally made the trip to see what all the “hubbub” was about. She started down south in Sidney and was working her way to Sioux City. Backpacking has really increased, too, Olson said. With about 100 so far taking advantage of the area. For more information and driving directions you can call the visitor center at 712-456-2924 or go to stry/loesshills.html.

HCHPH had active 2009 From HCHPH Page 1 state received a little more than 1.2 million doses for allocation to public health agencies. According to Carritt, the county began its response to the event early in 2009 with members of Harrison County Home and Public Health systems in Harrison County and Harrison County E m e r g e n c y Management monitoring events nationally, statewide and locally. “As local H1N1 activity began to increase, planning meetings were held to coordinate Harrison County’s response,” Carritt said. “The response to H1N1 was agency-wide and required cooperation from all staff to assist

with public meetings, staffing clinics or keeping the office open while the majority of the staff were manning mass public clinics. Overall, the H1N1 response in Harrison County was a success.” The department is gearing up again for flu season with 1,200 doses available for adults and 500 for children. Carritt told the board the Home Health program is the largest program in her department at the present time. In fiscal year 2010 the department completed 2,851 home care aide visits for a total of 2,691.75 hours. “A home health nurse is available 24 hours per day/seven days a week to meet the needs of the

current clientele and to accept referrals for new clients’.” Carritt said. There are currently 24 different programs run out of the Harrison County Public Health office including: home health skilled nursing services; family planning; maternal health; community education and outreach; blood pressure screenings; emergency planning and preparedness; Learning for Life; Bright Beginnings; child and adult immunizations; influenza immunizations; lead poisoning prevention; child passenger safety; tobacco prevention and control; child health; Hawk-I and hair follicle drug testing among others. Carritt said they are

presently working on a community health needs assessment for the county. According to Carritt after the needs are identified in the county, the next step is creating a health improvement plan. “This is where we determine what goals and activities we will focus on as a county to combat some of our identified health priorities,” Carritt said. “We will hold this stakeholder meeting later. The plan that is developed will look to addressing the health priorities over the next five years, all the while making adjustments as the programs or services change over that time period.”
