Sheriff Statistics show surge in carry permits MARY DARLING For The Twiner Legislation passed by the Iowa Legislature last year had a large effect on the number of carry permits issued by Harrison County in 2011. According to 2010 sheriff statistics, 621 carry permits were issued. That jumped to 835 for 2011. “The legislation lowered the standards that the sheriff has for discretions on who gets a permit,” Harrison County Sheriff Pat Sears said. “If

NIKKI DAVIS Editor It’s just Maverick Winther’s way of life. At age 12, a sixth grade student at Woodbine Elementary School, it’s second nature to take care of his heifers. His award winning, Simmental heifers. Winther has been showing heifers since kindergarten, and he has no intentions of giving it up … until he has to. “I was showing bucket bottle calves in kindergarten and you can show them until you graduate. Some shows will let you do it until you’re 21, but most of them stop after graduation,” Winther said. “You can’t show in college, but sometimes you can stay in it by helping with the shows and judging. I might do that because some colleges have actual judging

teams .” And when it comes down to showing … and judging … Maverick knows his stuff. “Not everyone will understand this, but the judges look at the back part of the legs. It should be slanted and not just straight. They look at the muscles,” he said. He ran through a list of those important things judges are looking for on his Simmentals: Coat, hair length; how round the rump is; feeling for ribs, neck fat; hoof flexibility upon walking; and more. “When the heifer walks, its back isn’t supposed to move. It has to stay very straight,” Maverick said, matterof-factly. Not only does he understand what the judges are looking for, he’s grown up in an environment that has taught See WINTHER Page 6

Woodbine is used to being first … but right now, it’s ranked second in the Blue Zones Project Community Scoreboard with 54.98 percent pledged to support the Wellness Initiative. Woodbine is trailing St. Ansgar, recently stood at 62.84 percent of pledged population, and is barely in front of Grundy Center, third with 51.48 percent. The Woodbine Blue Zones Committee has already helped carry Woodbine through the majority of application steps, beginning with an informational webinar, road shows, statements of interest accepted, and was one of the 54 communities in Iowa to complete the intensive application.

CHAMBER CONNECTION MAIN STREET-CHAMBER PROMOTIONS COMMITTEE

Watch for a “Pot of Gold” The Woodbine Main Street Promotion Committee’s purpose is to promote downtown in order to develop the economy of our Main Street District and the entire community. The committee develops promotional strategies through advertising, retail activities, special events and marketing campaigns. What are we working on now? Just a fun little event promoting the businesses and services you shop at and depend on each and every day! The current marketing campaign is “Live FREE in Woodbine … for a month!” The public is encouraged to take advantage of this promotion by doing, basically, what they do each week … picking up groceries, paying the utility bill, sending a card to a friend, buying a birthday gift, sending flowers to mom, feeling fit, doctoring the sniffles, picking up kibble for Rover, buying new Tiger gear, replacing the empty bottle of multivitamins … well … you get the picture! By shopping locally and dropping your receipts into a pot at participating stores, you just might find yourself winning a pot of gold of your very own full of Woodbine goodies. The contest begins March 1. Each time a customer makes a purchase at participating businesses, they print their name and phone number on the back of the receipt and drop it into a designated bucket. All receipts will be put together with ONE participant receiving ALL prizes (products and vouchers). The lucky winner will be drawn on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17). Start watching for details … and thanks for shopping at Woodbine businesses. It’s what keeps our community strong and growing!

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.

Still a city slicker, but learning as I go

W

ell, that was definitely interesting. Of course, interviewing anyone under the age of 18 is generally entertaining. This one was especially entertaining because for all I understood, he could have been speaking Japanese. Thanks to this job, every now and then, I am pushed out of my comfort zone, covering stories I have no knowledge about. The “Farmland” story from last week was one of those. After all, I grew up in the suburbs of Omaha, Neb., and farmland to me only meant those blank spots on the sides of the road on the way to my aunt and uncle’s place in Gretna, Neb. Then I went from farmland to livestock. Yup. Cows. My knowledge? They say, “Moo,” and are generally black, brown or spotted. They chew cud. They have four stomachs. (At least I think they do. I think that was some random trivia fact that has stuck in my head throughout the years.) Yup. That’s about all I know. So I sat down across from Woodbine Elementary School Sixth Grader Maverick Winther for an interview on cows. Wait. Let me correct myself … not cows. Heifers. Heifers is the proper term for a female cow. (And males are bulls and steers, which is a completely different column for a completely different day). I followed the conversation to that point and then I had to ask about 100 questions. I’m sorry. I know my aunt and uncle raised cattle for years, but it’s not like I ever paid attention. I had no interest. I just knew that’s where we purchased our beef year after year. So Maverick starts talking about rinsing and putting cows in coolers and washing them with dish soap. He talked about showing them and what the judges are looking for. And I kept interrupting him. “What do you mean they look at their rears?” I asked him, quite perplexed. “They check to see how round they are,” he

NIK’S KNACKS NIKKI DAVIS EDITOR nikki.davis@woodbinetwiner.com

replied without flinching, smiling or moving. My thought: “I never want to be a heifer judge.” Maverick knew his stuff and was desperately attempting to get the blonde (oh so blonde on this topic) reporter to understand. Such as, “Then we dry them.” Me: “How on Earth do you dry a cow? … I mean heifer?” Maverick: “With a blow dryer.” My vision: A cow with a pink bow in its hair, standing on its hind legs with a handheld blowdryer in one hoof, and a comb in the other. What I say out loud: “What do you mean a ‘blow dryer?’” Unbelieving stare from Maverick. That’s when it hit me … to him, it’s just a way of life. And he knows his stuff, let me tell you! He was raised around cattle (Winther Cattle Company? Anyone? Anyone?), and, living in this area, probably never ran into anyone quite like me. As much as I try to fit in and love living the quiet life here, I still have some awful city girl traits I haven’t been able to hide or shed. In the 40 minutes I spent with him, I think I learned more about heifers (Simmentals to be exact … and they aren’t all full-blooded Simmentals, either …) than I have in about 30 years of life. So thank you, Maverick, for teaching this old dog a new trick. I might still have some city-slicker ways left about me, but I am trying to learn as I go. Even if it is from a 12 year old sixth grader.

The Buds and the Bees

T

his week, I am going to write about the potential effects of the unusually warm and dry winter to date. This past week, I had a client call with a swarm of bees on their bird feeder. Jan. 29, and there were bees swarming! Swarming is a normal process in European honeybee colonies. Bees are a social insect, which means the hive operates as a collective unit to keep the society of bees going. There are different types, or castes, of bees, and each caste has its defined role. Among all those, only one insect – the queen – is reproductive. New hives are established first by the production of a new queen. Once she is present, the old queen gathers up a bunch of the workers and flies off to find a new home. And that is what happened in Logan last week. The only problem is, of course, that January in Iowa is not

conducive to bee survival. Swarming bees carry only what food (honey) that they can carry in their stomachs. In the summer, those bees can usually find nectar quickly, but in January, pickings are virtually nonexistent. Why you might ask? The warm weather and open conditions likely tricked the hive into triggering a swarm. There is really nothing to do with the swarm but take pictures, admire them passively and let nature take its course. Another client concern common in the Midwest this year are daffodils, tulips, etc. sending buds up and trees acting like it already is spring with buds swelling. Like the bees, the abnormal winter has tricked these plants into “thinking” it is time to grow. Understandably, people are concerned about the survival of those wayward plants. My simple

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator ropope@iastate.edu answer is that if something is well enough adapted for temperate Iowa, it likely will survive OK. The answer comes down to how adapted a species is to Iowa. Native and adapted non-native plants and animals will typically survive fairly well. If flower buds break, cold weather that follows may take out this year’s flower and seed crop. But established perennial plants can generally survive that. The tulips and daffodils may have a flowering failure, but if they don’t get too far along, the arrival of cold weather may just put them on hold until later when the time to bloom is correct. And even if adapted trees do

break foliage buds that are lost, they can typically releaf later with few long-term problems. There will be a little stress but if you try to help alleviate stress, things should be fine. And to me the biggest current stress is the dryness. I mentioned a few weeks ago about the advisability of watering dry conifers even in this mid-winter where the soil has not frozen. Hopefully by the time this column is published, we will have gotten a dose of rain and snow that will help things out.

‘Conversations on Aging’ offered in March It has been said everyone is, or will be, in one or more of four caregiving situations: being a caregiver; having been a caregiver; needing a caregiver; or will need a caregiver. Because care giving is a universal need in Woodbine, and all of Harrison County communities, the Harrison County Extension Service is offering two programs supported by grants from the Iowa West Foundation and Asera Care Hospice Foundation. The first is a free workshop called Caregiving

Relationships: Conversations on Aging. This two and a half hour program is designed for adult children who are facing issues with the support of an aging care giver parent or friend. During the program, participants will learn to recognize how care giving affects family relationships, and what roles are taken as you make decisions for parents or friends. The second part of the program builds learning and listening skills to address changing needs faced in later life,

including skills in starting difficult but necessary conversations and how to say what you mean and listen to what is truly being said. The Conversations on Aging program is free and will be from 6:30-8:45 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21, at the Harrison County Extension Office, Logan. Reg-istration is necessary. Please call the office at (712) 644-2105. A second program is the Powerful Tools for Caregivers program, a series of six, two and a half hour in-depth work-

shops designed especially for current or impending family caregivers. The series is offered free of charge and will start on March 6 at the Extension office, Logan. Powerful Tools for Caregivers will be for six consecutive Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Contact the Harrison County Extension office directly for more information and to enroll. For more information, contact Rich Pope or Dee Colwell at the Harrison County Extension Office, at (712) 644-2105.

DAR asking public to Golden Age Center Meal Menu remember forgotten patriots DAR celebrates Black History Month by remembering African Americans in Service during the Revolutionary War Since the mid-1980’s, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) has supported a project to identify the names of African Americans, Native Americans and individuals of mixed heritage who supported the American struggle for independence from Great Britain. In many cases, the invaluable service provided by those patriots has been forgotten, lost or overlooked by history. In the 1980s and 1990s DAR researchers published a series of booklets for each of the original states chronicling these patriots. Those stories were merged into one book published in 2001 titled, “African American and American Indian Patriots of the Revo-lutionary War.” Dedicated DAR researSAINTS Logan, IA Vance Gardiner, Branch Pres. 644-3495 646-2310 Sun.: 10 a.m., Sacrament meeting; 11:15 a.m., Sunday School; 12:10 p.m., Priesthood and Relief Society.

Maverick Winther: Just a Way of Life From WINTHER Page 1 him the hows of the industry. “I wake up early, at least during the summer, around 6:30 or 7 a.m. every day, 24-7, and do chores. During the school year, my dad will take care of the morning chores. But you have to feed them first. Depending on how much you want them to weigh, you mix up a certain ration, like this much corn and this much of that,” he said. “You want them to be filled up.” After the morning chores, he moves on to “rinsing,” also known as cleaning. “You can use special shampoo,” he said. “But you also can just use regular dish detergent.” After rinsing, comes drying. “You use like a blow dryer, but different. It’s a big, long hose that acts like a blow dryer,” Maverick said, showing size and motions with his hands. Then Maverick puts his prize-winning heifers in a cooler … at least during the summer. “It’s about the size of a classroom and it stays 60

degrees. There’s usually three or four of them in there at a time, but the cooler is what makes their hair grow,” he explained. “Right now, it’s cold enough outside we don’t need to use it.” All of those things, he explained, are important to what the judges will look for. And those tasks are performed two times a day with heifers hand selected by the Winther family. Maverick switches heifers out once a year, with a competition season that runs from around October to October. The selection process is just another way of life to him. “We get new heifers every year and most of them come from people we know,” he said. “But you look for what the judges are looking for. The ones we just bought were probably born in January, 2011, and we bought four, two for me and two for my brother, Montana. You have to look at the dames and sire to see their blood lines and, in shows, you can choose to show like full blood, half or quarter. We usually show half Simmentals.”

Maverick’s half-blooded Simmentals usually get shown around six times a year before he switches to a new one. And he was on a winning streak in 2011. Maverick’s heifer was named the Iowa State Fair Grand Champion Simmental, the River City Roundup Grand Champion Simmental, and, recently, in December with his new heifer, Reserve Grand Champion at AGR in Lincoln, Neb. But he has his sights set a little higher. “I’m pretty competitive with my brother, and he won a national show in Kansas City. It’s the biggest show we go to,” Maverick Winther’s hard work paid off when his heifer was named as the 2011 Maverick said. “I hope I Iowa State Fair Grand Champion Simmental.

shown enough support and submitted the documentation in the application sufficient to warrant a site visit by Blue Zones Project leaders. If selected, those visits will be Feb. 27

to March 16. But Woodbine isn’t there yet, and time is waning. The polls prove it: Woodbine is only 42.61 percent committed. Recently, a group of Main Street and community volunteers have focused on finding those citizens not yet signed up to pledge, explaining the program to each, and getting them to either go to the website and pledge, or sign a pledge sheet with

Large Group Speech prepares for Public Performance, Feb. 10 From SPEECH Page 1 record, to the best of Large Group Speech Coach Nancy Heistand’s recollection. “I’ve been a speech coach for a long time, and as far as I can remember, this year has the most events ever taken to the State Contest,” she said. “We’re very pleased with how well the students performed at District contest. We take the judges’ comments and then polish the performances before State.” The following 12 groups earned I ratings and competed at the State Large Group Speech Contest: •Readers Theater. “Stackalee.” Competitors include: Chris Andersen, Jameson Delaney, Jay Radloff, Keagan Barrett, Kyle Kuhlman, Nate Thompson, Patrick Glackin and Sam Powers. The students performed “Stackalee.” •Ensemble Acting. “Stop It.” “Stop It” was performed by Melissa Smith and Talon Delaney. •Ensemble Acting. “A Fate Totally Worse…” Alyssa Blum, Heather Smith, Shelby Hall and Victoria Thompson earned a spot at

State after competing “A Fate Totally Worse…” at Districts. •Ensemble Acting. “Small World.” Allison Lee, Chris Johnson, Courtney Schlinz, Danny Grothe, Drew Radloff and Melissa Sherer. •Group Improvisation. Emma Allen, Karlie Heffernan and Dashia Nuzum. •Group Improvisation. Keagan Barrett and Nate Thompson. •Group Improvisation. Jessica Allen and Melissa Smith. •Group Mime. Brittany Nelson and Heather Smith. •Group Mime. Allison Lee and Court-ney Schlinz. •Solo Mime. Meagan Andersen. •Solo Mime. Hannah Goodrich. •Short Film. Dan Grothe, Chris Andersen, Claire Probasco, Isaac Melocarro, and Rachael Zach. The remaining two groups, Choral Reading (Emma Allen, Dashia Nuzum, Karlie Heffernan, Jordan Barry and Levi Brown) and Radio Broadcast (Jay Radloff and Patrick Glackin) also competed Jan. 21, finishing above average with a II rating,

but not qualifying for State. “Every year, I’m amazed at how many students Mrs. Heistand works with for Speech. Woodbine has a great tradition of sending quality events to contest. I always tell her we basically have our own football team, numberswise,” IE and Group Improvisation Coach Deb Sprecker said. “The rehearsal times get very interesting, too, as most of our students are in several other sports and activities. Once again, Mrs. Heistand has worked her magic. She has a real knack for drawing good performances out of students, teaching them techniques and skills that will stick with them after high school.” Those students will also perform during a public performance, slated for 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 10, in the Woodbine High School Gymnasium. There is a small admission fee of $1 for students and $3 for adults. The funds will be used to support the Woodbine Community School District’s Speech and Drama Divisions. The public is encouraged to attend.

their email address. If they do not have an email, the Main Street email may be used. “Main Street volunteers have been working hard, knocking on doors to collect pledges, signing up students and parents at basketball games, and sending email blasts to their contacts. The Main Street volunteers have done a remarkable job of staying focused, finding pledges in order to keep

Woodbine in the running. We’ve gained considerable ground and we are in second place,” Woodbine Blue Zones Committee Member and Main Street Program Director Deb Sprecker said. “We hope to keep finding people to pledge their ‘vote of confidence’ in making Woodbine one of the Blue Zones Communities in Iowa right through February.” As only one of 10 com-

munities in the state, those communities selected will be part of a process to change and improve their hometowns into the models for improving wellness and health among citizens the Governor is striving for: Moving Iowa from 16th in the nation to the healthiest state in the nation. The impact of improved health is huge, affecting the workplace, education, and quality of life for every family.

And just what are the judges looking for? Readers Theater Readers Theater is a form of traditional theater, combined with interpretive reading using adaption from prose, poetry or a dramatic piece of literature. Two to 15 students are required for a performance limited to 25 minutes and under. Students are judged on effective speaking communication and the ability of the group to convey the message of the presentation. Ensemble Acting Ensemble Acting includes anywhere from two to six students and is judged according to material, line delivery, blocking, characterization and overall effect. No costuming or props may be used, except for six chairs and one table, and all lines must be memorized. Group Improvisation Group Improvisation uses two to five students and includes five minutes or less a performance. Teams draw three possible conflicts, and have two minutes to discuss the one they choose before acting it out. They are judged on characterization, creativity, timing, ensemble playing and how well they portray the conflict and bring it to a conclusion. No props or clothing may be used, other than five chairs. Group Mime Group Mime uses two to six students in performances seven minutes or less. Groups may not use costumes, props or makeup, only a

music score for background. Judging based on acting effectiveness, creativity, body control, movement and the ability of the group to convey a message. Solo Mime Same rules apply as Group Mime, but using a single actor. Short Film Short Film is new to the Large Group Speech Contest, only on its second year. Films are required to be original in nature and may be a collaborative effort between two to 15 students. Students must write, act, film and edit the original piece that must be five minutes or less in length. Films are judged on effective storyline, technical aspects, acting and overall presentation. Radio Broadcasting Radio Broadcasting teams must gather their own copy for five to six minutes of news stories and commercials, as well as an original special feature written by the news team. Teams of two to eight are judged on content and delivery, voice quality and pronunciation, style, flow, clarity and originality. Choral Reading Choral Reading material may be drawn from any form of literature. Groups of three to 15 students may use props, makeup and costuming for a 15 minute or less presentation. The event is judged on ensemble blend, expression, mechanics and staging.

Business and Finance

When searching for a bank to do personal banking, many people find banks aren’t all that different from one another. Banks offer similar services, and many have similar rules and regulations with regards to opening a personal account. Though banks might be similar, the individuals who open accounts are anything but. And when it comes to finding the right fit for personal banking, men and women should consider what’s most important to them before opening a new account. ATM Accessibility No one enjoys paying ATM fees, and some people are more adept at avoiding them than others. If those fees have been catching up with you, look for a bank with branches or ATMs near your home and your office, the two places you likely spend the most time. Nowadays, ATM fees can be as much as $2 when using another bank’s machine, and your own bank might also be charging you an additional $2 on top of that. If you rarely use another bank’s ATM, then ATM accessibility shouldn’t influence your decision too much. But if you are routinely spending $4 to access your own money, emphasize finding a bank with more accessible ATMs. Additional Needs Men and women who have a mortgage, car loan or other type of loan from a specific bank might want to consider making that bank their choice for personal banking as well. That’s because banks will often entice borrowers to do their banking as well as their borrowing with them by offering perks like free checks, low-interest credit cards and low-interest loans. In addition, some banks waive the minimum balance requirements for customers with multiple accounts. Restrictions and Penalties Men and women who struggle to maintain a minimum balance in their account should look for a bank with no minimum balance requirements. Such banks do exist, and these accounts are often most attractive to young professionals who are just getting on their feet. When discussing restrictions with the bank, also inquire about the penalties. If you have a problem maintaining a minimum balance, you might also find yourself bouncing a check or overdrawing on your account. If that’s a realistic possibility, find a bank that offers adequate overdraft protection, but be aware that such protection typically comes at a hefty cost, oftentimes via a high fee. Technology Nowadays, many people go months if not years, without ever stepping inside an actual bank. Online banking has made it easier than ever before to track spending, move around various accounts and pay bills. If online banking is especially important to you, find a bank that makes it easy to do your banking via the Web. Some banks charge for their online bill-pay services, while others don’t. Another thing to consider is whether or not a bank has an app for your phone. If you are an onthe-go professional who uses a mobile device to do your banking, then you will want a bank with a reliable, secure and proven app for your phone. Some banks have been slower to embrace this particular form of banking than others, so do your research into banking apps.

Missteps young investors should avoid The global economy remains in flux, and investors across the globe continue to witness a roller coaster ride with respect to their investments. Though veteran investors are more familiar with such fluctuations, young investors might be more confused. Some might even delay getting started on their portfolios, which is one of the many mistakes young investors commonly make. As unpredictable as the market may be, investors are often much more predictable, often re-peating the behaviors of those who came before them. The following are some of the more common mistakes young investors tend to make, each of which should be avoided no matter how difficult the market becomes. Delaying the inevitable Young people, particularly those who are just beginning their professional careers, often procrastinate when it comes to investing. This could be thanks to a host of factors, including inexperience, fear or simply wanting extra money in their pockets while they’re young. Each of these factors makes sense, but none of them should keep young

people from investing. Most young people have seen the projections that show the staggering differences in money earned when a person begins investing at 25 as opposed to 35 (or even 30). Even something as simple as investing through a company’s 401(k) is a good place to start, and young investors should take advantage of the opportunity to do so as soon as they’re eligible. When young investors put off investing, the results later on are not often pretty. That’s because of the tendency to overcompensate down the road. For instance, an investor who had the chance to invest in a particular asset but passed, only to see that asset grow significantly, might overcompensate the next time an opportunity presents itself. This is especially dangerous when it comes to investing, as fruitful investment ideas certainly don’t grow on trees. An investor who begins young and starts learning how to invest will feel more comfortable with his or her portfolio, and won’t feel the need to make up for lost years. Being an ill-informed investor Young investors know

A credit score is a number generated by a mathematical formula, or algorithm, based on information in each individual’s credit report. Lenders use different scoring models to determine if an applicant is worthy of credit, and these different models are why men and women have three different credit scores. But each of these models relies heavily on an individual’s credit report. Two of the most influential factors in determining an individual’s credit score are payment history and the amount of money owed. Payment history includes history of payment on credit cards, retail accounts, installment loans, and mortgages, among

other things. Adverse public records, including bankruptcies, liens and wage attachments also factor in. A credit score also takes into consideration the amount owed, including amount owed on certain types of accounts and the number of accounts with balances. In addition to payment history and amounts owed, the algorithm used to determine a credit score also considers an individual’s length of credit history, any new credit accounts they have opened and the types of credit they have used. The higher a person’s credit score, the better interest rate that person is likely to receive from a lender.

and don’t necessarily get married to a certain investment strategy. The markets are constantly evolving, and investors need to evolve along with them to be successful over the long haul. Only investing “extra” money Another common mistake young people make is the way they perceive investing. Many young people approach investing as something they will do when they get some “extra” money. Unfortunately, the day young people get this extra money rarely, if ever, arrives. Additional expenses, including vacations with friends or nights out on the town tend to take precedence, and young people find themselves approaching or even in their 30s without an investment portfolio to speak of. Treat investments as a monthly expense like rent or a car payment. Then, if there is any extra money at the end of the month, add that to the amount already invested. Tomorrow never comes in the world of investing, and young investors in particular need to realize that and get started as soon as possible.

about the need to invest, but many simply don’t ask enough questions about their investments. A young investor is in a great position for a number of reasons. Young investors are typically decades away from retirement and, as a result, can take on the most risk. The older an investor gets, the more risk averse he or she should become. Young investors commonly understand this principle, but that does not mean they should simply sit back and accept it when a risky investment does not pan out. While it’s good for young investors to take risks, if the risk doesn’t pay off, learn the reasons behind its failures. Doing so will lay a solid foundation for future investments. Another thing young investors must learn is to avoid taking a risk for the purpose of taking a risk. While it’s true young investors can afford risks more than their parents or grandparents, that doesn’t mean they should simply invest in any and all risky opportunities with the hopes of one of those opportunities eventually paying off in a big way. Learn what makes some risks better than others,

Accident Feb. 1 on U.S. Highway 30 The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Iowa State Patrol and Missouri Valley Police Department for an accident on U.S. Highway 30, two miles east of Missouri Valley, at 2 p.m., Feb. 1. Missouri Valley and Logan Rescue responded to an accident between a 1991 Honda and a 2011 Ford Fusion to assist with extraction of the victims. Jennette, McGrew, 54, Magnolia, was driving the Honda when the Ford Fusion, driven by Kerri Collier, 31, Woodbine, crossed the center line, causing a head on collision. McGrew was transported by Lifenet to Creighton University Hospital for life threatening injuries, where she passed away. Collier was transported to Alegent Community Memorial Hospital, Missouri Valley. U.S. Highway 30 was closed for approximately two hours to investigate and removed the vehicles. Both vehicles were a total loss.

Sports Tigers defeat Hawkeyes Lady Tigers fall to n i a g A Ridge View Raptors: Hall working toward lasting impression

Junior Jameson Delaney earned a “triple double” (see below) Jan. 31 against the West Harrison Hawkeyes. Delaney earned 18 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists during the game. “This doesn’t happen very much and Jameson played an outstanding game,” Woodbine Head Coach Kyle Bartels said. Photo: Nikki Davis Jan. 31 Woodbine: 16, 16, 18, 28: 78 West Harrison: 20, 10, 22, 19: 71 The score doesn’t tell the excitement in the Charter Oak-Ute gymnasium Jan. 31 when the Woodbine Tigers found themselves facing county and conference rival, the West Harrison Hawkeyes, for the third time. The Jan. 31 game was a conference battle ... and the Tigers did not want to lose. A back and forth match began with West Harrison up at the end of the first quarter by four and Woodbine up at half by a mere bucket. By the end of the third quarter, the Hawkeyes went back on top by a mere two points, leaving fans wondering which way the ball would tip. With 4:52 left in the game the score was even, 63 all. When the clock ticked down to 1:12, the score retied, 71 all. When it came down to it, West Harrison’s two fouls is what secured the game for Woodbine, with both Jameson Delaney and Drew Radloff nailing four free throws when the team needed them most. The Tigers pulled out the win in that last minute, defeating West Harrison once again this season, 78-71. That last quarter, according to Woodbine Head Coach Kyle Bartels,

is what won the game. “We scored 28 points in the fourth quarter and played a complete game of basketball. I feel that it was our best game of the year and we played as a team and never gave up,” he said. “Our kids have a lot of fight in them and I think they are starting to get some confidence in each other and getting comfortable with our offense, which is great, especially since it is almost time for Districts.” Senior Jay Radloff put 8 of 11 in the hoop as the team’s high scorer with 19. He added eight rebounds and one steal. Junior Jameson Delaney added 18 points, including a set of double triples on the night, led in rebounds with 10 and assists with 11, plus managed two steals. Other points earners included: Drew Radloff, 10; Seth Willis, nine; Davis Hackman, eight; Sam Powers, seven; Levi Brown, five; and Colton Jensen, two. Brown and Powers each hit one three-pointer during the game. Powers led in steals with three. Delaney and D. Radloff both earned an impressive 4for-4 from the free throw line. “Everyone played well. Jameson had a triple double with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. This doesn’t happen very

Woodbine Senior Jay Radloff led the team in points Jan. 31 against West Harrison, with 19. Photo: Nikki Davis much and he played an outstanding game,” Bartels said. “Jay deserves a lot of credit, scoring 19 points. He’s been playing great lately and is really developing well. These performances couldn’t have happened without everyone else helping.” Bartels cited the defense taking a different course last Tuesday. “We didn’t pressure until late in the game and we just let the game come to us. I thought our guys did an excellent job rebounding and forcing West Harrison to one shot on offense,” he said. “It was a team effort.” As a team, the Tigers forced 10 turnovers and pulled in 24 defensive rebounds. Bartels believes his team is getting better at handling the pressure close games. “This was our third game in a row that was decided by eight points or less,” he said. After the Jan. 31 game, the team stood 8-9 with two games remaining before District Play. “We have beaten a team three times in one year, which is a hard thing to do. We have almost gotten ourselves back to being 500 or better. We have done some good things this year and are taking some steps in the right direction. I don’t think this team is done yet. I think we are going to surprise some people before our season ends.” CORRECTION Jan. 27 Woodbine: 19, 16, 21, 14: 70 West Harrison: 11, 17, 18, 20: 66 “A nail biting moment to the fans, the score flashed 68-66, in favor of Woodbine, with 23 seconds left and the ball changing hands multiple times … until Davis Hackman was fouled, allowing a chance for Woodbine to pull ahead by four. It was a chance Hackman took to heart, sinking both baskets, putting Woodbine on top by four, 70-66, where the game ended.” CORRECTION: It was Sam Powers (not Davis Hackman) that was fouled at the end of the game, sinking both baskets and pulling Woodbine ahead by four. The Twiner regrets the error.

Feb. 2 Ridge View: 11, 12, 17, 17: 57 Woodbine: 7, 11, 13, 11: 42 The Woodbine Lady Tigers had a busy game on Feb. 2 against the Ridge View Raptors. It resulted in some good basketball, despite the Lady Tigers ending up on the losing side of the scoreboard, 57-42. Despite the story the scoreboard told, Woodbine Head Coach Ryan Coenen believes his team played well. “We shot the ball better than we have all year. We finally had one of those nights where our opponent couldn’t just sit back in a zone and let us shoot open threes,” Coenen said. “We really did a nice job of knocking down the open jumpers and getting good, open looks on penetration drives that set us up to go 6-9 from the free throw line as a team.” Coenen also believes Shelby is striving to make a lasting impression. The senior starter put up 21 points on the night, including a single three-pointer. She shot 4-of-5 from the free throw line, and trailed only Shelby Behrednt in rebounds, pulling in seven to Behrendt’s eight. She threw in, and led in, steals for the team, with three and added two assists to round out her night. “Shelby Hall really must be trying to put a lasting impression on our program with her last few performances,” Coenen said. “You just can’t say enough about the responsibility she’s taken in trying to take this team to the next level.” Adding to the team’s performance was freshman Megan Maaske, who trailed Hall in points with eight, but hit two buckets from behind the key, took one steal, one assist and two rebounds on the night.

“Our point guard next winter after Hall leaves is going to have some big shoes to fill, but I think Megan has been taking notes all season long on what it takes to be a competitor and on-thecourt leader,” Coenen said. “Megan also had a wonderful night for us off the bench. She knocked down two, big threes that actually put us in the lead for the first time all night in the middle of the third quarter. That forced Ridge View back into a man defense, which really opens up things for the rest of our team.” Also adding to the scoreboard for the Lady Tigers were: Alyssa Blum, six; Behrendt, four; Bailee Meyer, two; and Melissa Sherer, one. It was a busy, defensive night for Woodbine, with Ridge View able to play 10 girls to keep their team fresh. “They were always able to put four to five skilled ball handlers on the court which forced us to play solid defense the entire possession, every possession. Our girls did a great job of switching in and out of different defensive schemes. Shelby Behrendt had a great game defensively,” Coenen said. “We’ve had a few injuries that have left us a little more short-handed than we’d like to be. And, although our girls have stepped up to the challenge of taking on more responsibility, our conditioning was an obstacle we couldn’t overcome in the third quarter as Ridge View matched our run with three of their own. We just found ourselves out of position on a few offensive rebound attempts that led directly to Ridge View outlet layups.” Post season play for the Lady Tigers begins on Thursday, Feb. 9, in Ar-WeVa. The Lady Tigers head into post-season with a 4-14 record, and a 27.1 field goal percentage and 20.5 three-point percentage.

Lone Woodbine Senior Shelby Hall dominated the points for the Tigers Feb. 2 with 21. Her perfomance in recent games has not gone unnoticed. “Shelby Hall must be trying to put a lasting impression on our program with her last few performances,” Woodbine Head Coach Ryan Coenen said.
