NIKKI DAVIS Editor On May 16, Lincoln Way, also known as L16 just past Bus Brown drive, was closed to through traffic for road construction. The construction involves re-grading the road to current design specifications to allow for safe travel at 55 miles per hour the entire length. Currently, 3.37 miles are being re-graded. “This entire project has been in our construction program for over 10 years,” Harrison County

Engineer Tom Stoner said. “It has been delayed due to lack of sufficient funding to carry out the work. Its completion will provide an important access connection into Monona County.” The sufficient funding includes a price tag of $1,383,221.20 and is being funded with 80 percent federal dollars and 20 percent farm-tomarket (gas tax) funds and being headed up by general contractor Steger Construction of Dyersville, Iowa.

Harrison County Fair receives Pioneer Grant

Legion members affected by flooding offered emergency funds MARY DARLING For The Twiner

Harrison County Fair Board President John Straight, front left, and vice-president Rodney Plath, were presented a $2,500 check from Pioneer Hi-Bred July 1 for the Harrison County Fair. Pioneer officials pictured from the left include, sales representatives Brian Dickinson, Cory Bebensee, account manager Mason Loftus, sales representatives Andy Olson, Elizabeth Witt and Gail Witt. Photo: Mary Darling Harrison County Fair officials received a $2,500 grant from Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business July 1, toward the sheep and goat pens project in the 4-H barn at the Harrison County Fair Grounds. The grant originated with a request from Mason Loftus, account manager, through Pioneer Community Investment. Funds will be directed toward the sheep and goat pens in the 4-H barn at the Harrison County Fair Grounds for 4-H members’ use and will promote increased involvement in agriculture for the county’s youth. The Harrison County Fair’s mission is to support youth involvement in 4-H and agriculture for Harrison County residents. “We thank Pioneer for this $2,500 grant. It will go to the new goat and sheep pens we have needed. Those two classes have really grown,” Fair Board President John Straight said. “Every little bit helps.

We have lots of support from the community and businesses. It makes it easier for the kids and makes the fair look nicer.” As the philanthropic arm of Pioneer, Community Investment makes contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the business and employees. Consideration for Community Outreach grants are given to communities where Pioneer representatives, employees and customers live and work and that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide. Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business headquartered in Des Moines, is the world’s largest developer and supplier of advanced plant genetics, providing high-quality seeds to farmers in more than 90 countries. Pioneer provides agronomic support and services to help increase farmer productivity and profitability and strives to develop sustainable agricultural systems for people everywhere.

Area American Legion members in good standing affected by the flood have another avenue to take for help. The American Legion Emergency Fund, established in 1989, can be used to meet the needs of Posts or individual members of a Legion family in areas stricken by natural disasters. Since its inception, the National Emergency Fund has provided more than $6 million in direct financial assistance to Legion family members and posts. The fund has helped keep posts from closing and enabled Legion family members to begin to rebuild their homes and their lives. Eligibility criteria include: • Eligibility open to Legionnaires, Auxilary (if Auxiliary membership is less than five See FLOOD Page 6

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

CHAMBER CONNECTION WOODBINE MAIN STREET-CHAMBER DEAN BLUM WOODBINE SADDLE CLUB PRESIDENT

It is all about the people!

P

eople make up the key component to a successful sustainable community and as I watched the rodeo weekend come and go, I also reflected on my motto; “It is all about the people!” People volunteered to work in the food stand for a shift. People parked cars, worked the gates, pens, chutes, rescue unit and participated as spectators and contestants. People donated funds, time, talents and resources to help our annual rodeo continue. People in this community care and take action to help others. Working with the “people” of Woodbine has always given me great pride. I know that this community is full of wonderful families who care about our community and rodeo weekend’s future. As the Woodbine Saddle Club President, I am humbled by the support of the “people.” I am glad that our “founding fathers” will continue to see their vision of the Woodbine Rodeo continue to bring the western lifestyle and love for rodeo to Woodbine for years to come. I would like to thank the “people” that volunteered, donated funds and resources to help the rodeo weekend be a success. Seeing the rodeo continue and know that its success hinges on the support of “the people” is why I do what I do. THANK YOU, DEAN BLUM

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.

On a cold, rainy Tuesday ...

W

ell now that made for an interesting morning, didn’t it? That cold, rainy Tuesday about did me in. It wasn’t raining when I left for work … but I watched those clouds from my “big screen” and saw them heading two different directions. Once that wind picked up, I was the blonde standing in the middle of the street taking pictures and video taping. Shortly after the wind began – the rain made a grand entrance. I held up the video camera, watching the rain bounce off the bricks. The wind was blowing so hard, it was sending ripples of rain and water down Main Street. It poured. While I’m filming, I watched a newspaper (wrapped up in its protective plastic bag) float down the street next to the curb … And then, while I was video taping the rain and the ripples … a flag goes flying in front of my nose and lands with a THUNK in the street right next to the curb. You can hear the “OH!” shocked yelp in the video I took. About a second later the video ended and I stood there for a few seconds regarding my options. Leave that beautiful, new American flag rest there … on the ground … in the rain … or suck it up, get wet and rescue it. There really wasn’t an option there as far as I was concerned. It laid there, being disrespected. All those that have fought, are fighting and will fight lay there in that red, white and blue. All the freedoms delivered by its waving high above our heads. And even all the work and fundraising it took to be sure Woodbine could fly them. I drug myself into the rain and picked it up. Water fell like a blanket off of the stripes, weighing it down. I was so cautious when I picked it up. “It can’t drag on the ground. It can’t drag on the ground. It can’t drag on the ground …” I kept chanting in my head as I’m trying to maneuver it and myself through the rain drops pelting me in the eyes. But I got it. And I set it inside the door – leaving a puddle on the floor. While standing out there, a friend pulls up that’s going to have breakfast next door and invites me to come. I sat there, drinking coffee and drying out.

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

(Albeit the conversation when we were joined by others turned to gigantic rats and other miscellaneous topics that made my head spin and gave me goosebumps!) Sure enough – I look across the street as the rain continued to fall and there it was. Another one – on the ground. I excused myself from the table. (I probably should have been working by this point anyway instead of sitting around drinking coffee and exchanging rat stories.) Instead of going through the hallway back to work, I jogged across the street (still in the rain – ugh) and grabbed flag number two. The wind had blown so hard that the aluminum pole was bent on the bottom. And into the office it went – next to the first one. I know a few people in this town that firmly believe in flying the red, white and blue banner that symbolizes so much – what our grandfathers, fathers, brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews – fought and fight for. I also know the people who are struggling to keep Main Street and Woodbine patriotic – a commendable effort. So I must ask you, Woodbine-ites, Twiners, Woodbine residents, please respect the symbol of our country. Please follow flag etiquette. Great Website for etiquette is http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagcode.htm. And, please remember Main Street folks caring for flags along the street, if your flag or flag pole is damaged, please, please contact Tony Smith and have it fixed. Several worked so hard in this community to bring these flags and their symbolism and honor to the community. Let’s all do our best to keep America’s and Woodbine’s red, white and blue flying high.

Fair time ... a tad different this year

P

art of the thrill (and a source of manageable frustration) for volunteer 4H leaders, Extension office staff, Fair board members and 4-H’ers is upon us: the County Fair. This year, we all have the added challenge of moving the fair from its long-term home in Missouri Valley to the 2011 temporary headquarters in Dunlap. As we prepare for the week’s revelry, I have an observation and a few preliminary thanks to share. And before that, I encourage anyone reading this column to come and see what a true example of community partnership and fun is and join us at the Harrison County Fair at the 4-County Fairgrounds on the north side of Dunlap. Observation 1: It was a tough call by the Fair

board to move the fair. Many community people’s July routines are at least partially driven by fair activities, and the move has upset plans or, at least for some, made planning different. But the bottom line about the move is in the interest of safety. Yes, the fairgrounds in Missouri Valley is still dry; obviously a good thing! But we will still be under a flood threat there at least well into August. Rather than have the scenario of a two-hour notice to evacuate exhibits, livestock, electronic equipment, etc. etc. etc. and the accompanying risk of injury or death to people involved, the move was, and is, a wise one. Thank you 1: To the 4-County Fairboard and the people of Dunlap. It is truly incredible the support and help that these folks have shown

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator ropope@iastate.edu in the planning and arrangement of the Harrison County Fair. Likewise, kudos as well for the Boyer Valley School District for their help and assistance. Thank you 2: Thank you to the businesses and people of Missouri Valley for all the effort, angst and ongoing vigilance in keeping that part of the county as dry as possible. (More about that later I am sure.) Also, thanks for your community spirit in cooperation with the dislocation of the Fair. Thank you 3: To 4-H youth, parents, volunteers, etc. for plugging along and also working

together with the move. Thank you 4: To pretty much everyone else in their willingness to cooperate and help. I think I said it before that a disaster typically brings out the worst AND the best of people. Happily, what we have seen in Harrison County is nearly all the best. No doubt, events of this summer will be ones to remember for decades to come. Lets hang on the best of them. See you at the Fair!

Iowans encourage to register for the Hay and Straw directory Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey encourages Iowa hay and straw producers to register or update their listing on the Iowa Hay and Straw Directory. The directory lists Iowa producers with hay and straw for sale, as well as organizations and businesses associated with promoting and marketing quality hay and straw. “This directory is designed to help both buyers and sellers by listing Iowa growers that have hay and straw available,� Northey said. “This directory has proven to be a valuable asset to Iowa farmers and encourage those that can use it to take full advantage of this resource.� The listing is available to interested buyers throughout the nation. However, only sellers from within Iowa can be included on the list. Names are gathered throughout the year with added emphasis now that hay harvest has started. Sections within the Hay and Straw Directory include “Forage for Sale,� “Forage Auctions,� “Hay Associations,� “Forage Dealers,� “Hay Grinders� and “Custom Balers.�

Farmers interested in listing should visit the Department’s Website at www.IowaAgriculture.gov. An application form can be found by going to the “Bureaus� link and then selecting “Agricultural Marketing.� Then click on the “Hay & Straw Directory� link at the bottom of the page. For those without internet access, please call the Hay/Straw Hotline at (800) 383-5079. The department will fax or send a printed copy of the application to be filled out. The department is also supporting the Iowa Crop Improvement Association’s “Iowa Noxious Weed Seed Free Forage and Mulch Certification Program.� Through this program Iowa forage and mulch producers can take advantage of many emerging market opportunities for “Certified Weed Free� products.

Midway discounts offered for the State Fair

Iowa Hunting Access Program

“Nothing Compares� to the heart-stopping thrill rides and entertainment on the Midway at the 2011 Iowa State Fair. With a variety of amusement savings packages, fairgoers can enjoy even more rides. The fair is set Aug. 11-21. Fairgoers can save at the Midway by planning ahead for this year’s fair. Purchase a set of five Midway tickets for $13; each ticket is good for one ride. Mega Pass wristband are also available for $25 which includes unlimited mechanical rides any one fair day from open to close, including weekends. These Midway

Iowa hunters spoke loudly about the lack of hunting opportunities when the Iowa DNR hosted open houses across the state last fall to discuss the fish and wildlife trust fund. “Frankly, we were not at all surprised to hear that,� private lands program coordinator for the Iowa DNR Kelly Smith said. “We are 49th in the nation in the amount of public land available for hunting. Hunting access on private land is a concern and it grows each year.� Increasing hunter access has been a focal point within the DNR and in an effort to address that need, the Wildlife Bureau was awarded a three year, $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide funding to landowners who voluntarily sign up to install wildlife habitat on their land in exchange for allowing hunters access to that habitat. “We are excited to see how this pilot project will be received from our landowners,� Smith said. The program works like this: a landowner who is interested in installing wildlife habitat or improving existing habitat contacts the DNR, who will come out to visit the property and together they write a habitat plan that is submitted for consideration. If accepted,

special savings must be purchased by Aug. 10 and are available while supplies last at www.iowastatefair.org or the Iowa State Fair Ticket Office, as well as statewide Walgreens and Des Moines area Hy-Vee stores. The Iowa State Fair welcomes back Belle City Amusements for 11 days of twists, turns and thrills. Experience a view of the entire midway while 100 feet above the ground at the top of the Giant Wheel. Young fairgoers can experience age-appropriate thrills on two mini coasters, take a spinning carousel ride, soar through the air

on the Yo-Yo Swings and more. Thrill rides will be in their new location, west of the Varied Industries Building. New this year, the Area 51-Scare Zone will be on site. The haunted attraction will send fairgoers into a neon-green trailer for a variety of amusement and frights while inside. The Crazy Mouse rollercoaster returns sending riders speeding down a zig-zagging track while simultaneously spinning each car around in a complete circle. Fairgoers’ will also have access to other returning rides such as the Sky Scraper, Ejection Seat,

Turbo Trampoline and Climbing Experience. Ride costs may vary. For more information, call (800) 545-FAIR or visit iowastatefair.org.

Fear of Losses May Lead to Negative Investment Behavior Like every other investor, you prefer not to see the value of your investments drop. But at some point they will fall simply because of the ups and downs of the market. And how you respond to short-term losses can help determine if you enjoy longterm investment success. Investors’ feelings about losses can be complex. In the field of economics, an area of study is devoted to “loss aversion� — the concept that people dislike losing money so much that, given a choice, they’d prefer to avoid losses rather than take gains. For example, if you have a high degree of loss aversion, then you will find greater dissatisfaction by losing $100 than you’d get satisfaction from taking a $100 profit. Loss aversion can lead to various forms of negative investment behavior. Here are two of the most common results: Seeking “risk-free� investments — When you think of investment losses, the first thing that probably comes to mind is a drop in stock prices. If you’re really loss-averse, you might seek to avoid this situation by simply avoiding stocks and placing all your money in other investments. While some of these investments may seem “risk free,� you must consider factors

such as inflation risk — the possibility that these investments may provide returns that don’t keep up with the rate of inflation. Holding “losers� too long — From time to time, you will own investments that, for whatever reason, underperform. If you’re highly lossaverse, though, you may have a tough time acknowledging the losing nature of these investments, so you may be tempted to hold on to them until they “bounce back.� But if the investment’s fundamentals change, or if the investment no longer aligns with your goals, it may be time to sell it and look for other opportunities. Conversely, you may want to hold on to quality investments whose price has dropped in the short term, because these investments may well recover. How can you avoid these types of behavior? For starters, you’ll need to recognize the symptoms of loss aversion in yourself — and then resolve to overcome them. Accept the fact that short-term losses are part of investing and that every single investment carries some type of risk. This doesn’t mean, of course, that you should do

nothing to reduce your risk. One effective risk-fighting measure you can take is to diversify your holdings by investing in a variety of stocks, bonds, government securities, CDs and other investment vehicles. If you had all your holdings in only stocks or bonds, a downturn primarily affecting one of those assets could lead to a big hit for your portfolio. But by spreading your dollars among a variety of investments, you’re also spreading the risk. Keep in mind, though, that diversification by itself can’t guarantee a profit or protect against loss.

the DNR will provide an incentive payment in exchange for the landowner installing the habitat. Agreements last from a minimum of three years to a maximum of 10 years. The agreement says hunters may have access to the portion of the property covered by the agreement, which will be treated like a public wildlife management area and open to hunting from Sept. 1 to May 31. DNR law enforcement will provide assistance and enforcement if needed. “Some landowners expressed concerns that if they choose to participate, they would be held liable for hunting accidents or for the people who come on to their property, but landowners are specifically covered by Iowa law for limited liability pertaining to incidents or accidents by hunters on their property,� Smith said. “We believe this program is good for natural resources by creating more wildlife habitat and good for hunters by working to increase hunter access to private land.� The pilot program will last for three years. Landowner participation is completely voluntary. More information is available at http://www.iowadnr.go v/wildlife/privatelands/mgt_access.html.

Construction on County’s L16 to last until fall From L16 Page 1 dozen residences are being affected due to the construction, but Steger Construction advised those living along the route they will make every effort to keep the road open to them to allow access to their homes. “However, depending on the status of culvert construction and weather, convenient access may not always be available,” Stoner noted. “Depending on the stage of construction, portions of those affected will have to seek alternative routes.” Currently the three mile stretch of road is being graded. But that probably won’t be the end of the construction in the area. “When the grading is completed, it will be surfaced with granular surfacing until the next Even though L16 is open to the residents that live along it, the road is not always the easiest to traverse.

Pull the Plug on old appliances From PLUG Page 1 and earned a $25 bonus for each unit. All the appliances are appropriately recycled, never refurbished, so we know those old, inefficient units will not be wasting precious electric resources.” Customers of MidAmerican will also receive a rebate when they recycling a qualifying old appliance. The program is designed to help customers save energy, money and help the environment. MidAmerican offers rebates of $50 for refrigerators and freezers and $25 for window air conditions. In addition to the rebates, customers may also take advantage of company rebates on the purchase of new energy-efficient appliances. “We are pleased to offer the appliance recycling program because it benefits our customers and the environment,”

Diane Mumms, vicepresident regulatory affairs and energy efficiency said. “It is good for MidAmerican customers because it provides them with a convenient way to dispose of used appliances.” Through this program, MidAmerican electric customers may recycle up to two refrigerators, two freezers and two window air conditioning units, with a maximum of six appliances per address. Appliances must be 10 cubic feet or larger (no commercial sizes) and units must be emptied prior to pickup. “Since October 2009, MidAmerican Energy Company has worked with Iowa electric customers to recycle working refrigerators, freezers and window air conditioners,” public relations manager Tina Potthoff said. “Since it’s start, more than 260 customers in southwest

Iowa have taken advantage of the program.” According to Potthoff, refrigerators built prior to 1990 can use two or three times more energy than a new, high-efficiency model. A new Energy Star qualified refrigerator uses less than half as much energy as one made prior to 1993. According to the REC, in 2010 more than 1,720 appliances were recycled through the REC Pullthe-Plug program. Aside from energy savings, Iowa REC members kept more than 238,500 pounds of recyclable and/or hazardous material from entering landfills and ultimately soil and groundwater. During appliance pickup for REC customers, Environmental Services of Iowa will check to make sure the appliance is operable, load it and write a $25 rebate check. Three appliances per year may

be recycled per residence in the REC program. Appliances to be picked up must be located curbside or be easy outside accessible for pickup. It must be located outside the home and be operable. ESI employees will not enter members’ homes to remove any appliances. By recycling old appliances and purchasing Energy Star appliances customers of MidAmerican or REC can save from $70 to $120 more per year. Besides saving customers energy costs with new appliances they also receive rebates in both programs offered. If you are interested in using one of these programs, customers of MidAmerican Energy can call (800) 621-2757 or register at jacoinc.net to schedule a pickup time and REC customers can call 647-2727 or (800) 822-5591 to schedule a pickup time.

pleted,” Stoner said. “Long term plans call for the paving of the entire route from Woodbine to Monona County. But future segments will have to await additional funding.” The 3.37 mile stretch is slated to be complete by fall. However, weather delays and unforeseen problems such as road closures due to area flooding, could push the date further back. “Although the project has a few, extremely vocal local critics, the area people have generally been quite patient with the process. I believe the local residents understand that a little inconvenience now will result in a much better and safer roadway in the future and we appreciate that understanding,” Stoner said. “Once the grading and resurfacing is accomplished, the complete project should provide excellent service for 30 to 50 years.”

Not picture Jon McElldery. Photo: Submitted Miriam Thiele was a lover of animals, and she wanted that love to live on … and it will through the Harrison County Humane Society after a generous donation in her honor. “This is Miriam doing this, I’m just the messenger to carry out her wishes,” Jim Thiele of Woodbine said. Jim then handed over checks to the HCHS totaling $1,100. “Miriam wanted this to go to the humane society to keep helping the animals in this county,” Jim said as he sat down and took out a small photo album of their pets. He began to tell those attending the HCHS on July 14 meeting each pet’s name and how they

became part of the family. The Thiele’s son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Kathy Thiele, looked on. Jim contacted the HCHS via e-mail prior to the check presentation. The e-mail was one that surprised HCHS board members. “Paul Fouts had suggested that since Miriam loved animals, why not donate the memorials to the Harrison County Humane Society,” the email stated. It continued with Jim wanting to know if the HCHS did anything in memory of loved ones. The answer was obscure because this was the first time it had happened. Caught off guard, HCHS thought they should start looking into

memory boards. Not liking anything they saw, it was suggested to try Gary Rodewald in Missouri Valley who does wood working. Rodewald was able to deliver an “In Memorandum” board befitting of the HCHS’ mission, leaving space for cats, dogs – and their humans in the middle. “Instead of ‘In Memory Of,’ call it ‘In Honor Of,’” he said. So the HCHS “Honor Board” was created in order to honor any person or pet. Because of Miriam’s love and of her gift, her name will be the first to be placed on the Honor Board once it’s complete. “Thank you to Jim and his family,” HCHS Board President LuAnn Kahle

said. “Jim, you may have thought you were just the messenger, but you have just as much love for animals as Miriam did. It showed through your tears as you talked about the pets that you and Miriam both loved. And that love is continuing through you … bless you Jim.” If anyone else is interested in making donation or memorial in honor of a loved one or pet, please contact HCHS through their Website www.harrisonhumane.org, or contact LuAnn Kahle at (712) 267-9906. All proceeds go to support the future shelter where the Honor Board will hang and help the HCHS continue to help animals of Harrison County and surrounding areas.

Community Draining Prairie Rose Lake next step for restoration

No-wake restriction lifted at Lewis and Clark State Park The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has lifted the no-wake restriction for boating on Blue Lake, in Lewis and Clark State Park, near Onawa. The DNR had closed the lake and park for precautionary reasons based on potential impacts of the Missouri River. On July 1, the DNR reopened the park to day use and the lake to no-wake boat traffic. The campground, however, remained closed. The DNR will meet early next week to review the condition of the entire park and projected Missouri River releases. “We will discuss what we need to do and how we need to do it to get all of the facilities in the park open, including the campground, in early August,” chief of State Parks for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Kevin Szcodronski said. “Regardless of when the campground is reopened, the campsites will be available for first come campers for the rest of the season.”

CRP sign-up benefits Iowa

The process of draining Prairie Rose Lake ahead of the $3 million restoration project has begun. Once the water control gate is opened, the water level will fall about three feet per week, until the lake is completely drained sometime after Labor Day. Boat ramps will likely not be usable after Aug. 1. Bryan Hayes, fisheries biologist with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources for Prairie Rose Lake, said the next two years of the project include modifying the spillway to prevent carp from entering the lake, fixing the gate valve, placing riprap along shore to prevent shoreline erosion, and installing fish habitat and fishing jetties. “The project has been going on since 2008 but most of the work has done behind the scenes,” Hayes said. “Beginning next week, the progress will be much more visible.”

“Our goal is to minimize the time that the lake is down, so the plan calls for mechanical dredging while the lake is down then switch to hydraulic dredging in future years. We will hopefully be putting water in early next summer,” he said. “One important piece of the puzzle is to put more storage capacity in the wetland east of the highway so it will function as a sediment and nutrient trap, as intended.” The DNR is partnering with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, the Shelby County Soil and Water District and the Natural Resources Conservation Service on the watershed portion of the project. David Brand serves as the Prairie Rose water quality project coordinator. The renovation plan is based on a 2008 lake study and recommendations from Iowa State University. “We have worked

with landowners in the watershed to install 40 miles of terraces, install grassed waterways and to better manage nutrients on the land,” Hayes said. “We purchased a containment site last year where the dredge material will be deposited, hopefully beginning in late fall.” The lake protection features installed in the watershed should extend the benefits of the in lake work far into the future. “Our goal is to improve the water quality that will get Prairie Rose off the impaired waters list and have a sustainable, healthy lake system,” Hayes said. Prairie Rose Lake is in one of Iowa’s more popular state parks of the same name. The lake has an annual economic impact of $3.37 million and the campground hosts more than 21,000 camper nights per year. The campground and other park facilities will remain open during the project.

“I know it’s no fun to give up fishing your favorite lake but it is necessary to get the lake on the right track. We have a number of examples at nearby parks, of what benefits anglers and park visitors will see after the work is done. Lake Anita and Viking Lake are both experiencing excellent fishing and improved water quality since the projects were completed,” Hayes said. “We are excited to get this project to the next step, now we will need some cooperation from Mother Nature to keep us on schedule.” The lake will refill in 2012 and be stocked with largemouth bass, bluegills, crappies and channel catfish. Hayes said they are collecting adult bass from Prairie Rose this week that they will hold until next summer to encourage reproduction early on. He said they will also stock larger fingerling bass and catfish to jump start the fishery.

USDA announced it will accept 2.8 million acres offered by landowners under the Conservation Reserve Program general sign-up that was completed last April. The selections preserve and enhance environmentally sensitive lands, while providing payments to property owners. “We are pleased to find out that during this 41st general sign-up, Iowa had 1997 offers which totaled 51,698 acres. Eighty-eight percent of the acres offered were accepted for a total sign-up enrollment of 45,421 acres,” State Executive Director for USDA’s Iowa Farm Service Agency John R. Whitaker said. CRP is a voluntary program that helps agricultural producers use environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. Plant cover established on the acreage accepted into the CRP will reduce nutrient and sediment runoff in our nation’s rivers and streams. This reduces soil erosion that may otherwise contribute to poor air and water quality, and provide valuable habitat for wildlife. The CRP has restored more than two million acres of wetlands

and associated buffers and reduced soil erosion by more than 400 million tons per year. “This is a program that really benefits Iowans. It protects our land, water and air while also providing important wildlife benefits,” Whitaker said. USDA selected offers for enrollment based on an Environmental Benefits Index comprised of five environmental factors plus cost. The five environmental factors are wildlife enhancement, water quality, soil erosion, enduring benefits and air quality. USDA implemented a number of measures including using additional EBI point incentives for producers to submit cost effective offers, and producer outreach activities to encourage competitive offers on the most environmentally sensitive lands. These measures will maintain the high environmental benefits while decreasing the historic cost of the program.

Legals/Community Free and reduce priced meals for students Shelton hired as The Iowa Department of Education, Bureau of Nutrition, Health and Transportation Services, announced its policy for free and reduced price meals for children unable to pay the full price of meals served under the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program and the Afterschool Care Snack Program. Households may apply for free or reduced price meal benefits in one of four ways: 1. Households whose income is at or below the levels shown in the eligibility guidelines are eligible for reduced price or free meals. Households may complete one application listing all children and return it to the school. 2. Food Assistance households and children receiving benefits under the Family Investment Program are eligible for free meals. Most children from Food Assistance and FIP households will be qualified for free meals automatically. These house-

holds will receive a letter from their children’s schools notifying them of their benefits. Households that receive a letter from the school need to do nothing more for their children to receive free meals. 3. Some Food Assistance and FIP households will receive a letter from the Department of Human Services which will qualify the children listed on the letter for free meals. Parents must take this letter to the child’s school to receive free meals. And 4. Food Assistance or FIP households receiving benefits that do not receive a letter from DHS must complete an application for their child(ren) to receive free meals. Only complete applications will be approved by the school and may be submitted any time during the school year. If a family member becomes unemployed, the family should contact the school to complete an application. Foster children are eligible for free meal bene-

fits. If a family has foster children living with them and wishes to apply for such meals, instructions for making application for such children are contained on the application form. Special Supplement Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children participants may be eligible for free or reduced price meals based on a completed application. Households with children who are enrolled in the Head Start/Even Start Program or the Migrant Education Program or who are considered homeless or runaway by the school district’s homeless liaison, should contact the school for assistance in receiving benefits. If households are dissatisfied with the ruling of the officials, they may make a formal appeal either orally or in writing to the school’s designated hearing official. The policy statement on file at the school contains an outline of the hearing procedure. School officials may veri-

fy the information in the application, and that deliberate misrepresentation of information may subject the applicant to prosecution under applicable State and Federal criminal statutes. Households should contact their local school for additional information.

LEGALS PUBLIC NOTICE WOODBINE CITY COUNCIL July 5, 2011 Minutes Mayor William H. Hutcheson called the Woodbine City Council into session Tuesday, July 5, 2011, at 5:30 p.m., in the City conference room. Council members Brenda Loftus, Jim Andersen, Bob Stephany and Noel Sherer answered roll call. Others in attendance included LuAnn Kahle, Helen Rogers, Kathy Alvis, Alana Smith, Tammy Barrett, Darin Smith, Alan Ronk, Andy Arndt, Paul Marshall, Joe Gaa and Lois Surber. Moved by Andersen, seconded by Loftus, to approve the agenda. 4 ayes. Moved by Stephany, seconded by Loftus, to approve the consent agenda which included June 20 minutes, and June 2011 Continued Bills. 4 ayes. The deterioration of Park Street from 11th to 12th Street was identified as a priority repair project by the Streets committee. The city had gotten proposals in the past to replace the entire street and improve drainage and infrastructure with a proposed cost being $200,000.00. Current proposals were collected that would repair the major deficiencies in the street followed with an overlay of the top surface. This would be a cost effective solution that could be addressed immediately and would provide a solution for the next three to five years. Proposal from Daley Brothers Asphalt for $22,750.00, and Western Engineering Company, Inc. for $24,296.50 have been received. Moved by Stephany, seconded by Sherer, to allow city staff to evaluate the proposals and approve the proposal that appears to be the best at a cost not to exceed $25,000.00 and to get the project started. 4 ayes. The 5+/- acres of grass land at the lagoon site that has been farmed for hay the past few years was publically advertised for a bidding process that was opened June 27, 2011. The public bidding process will be used to evaluate proposals on a five-year basis. The City received one proposal, which was from Ralph Pauley, Jr. for $150/year. Moved by Andersen, seconded by Loftus, to accept the lagoon hay proposal from Ralph Pauley, Jr., on a five-year term. 4 ayes. The City received a Community Development Block Grant for the

downtown district façade master plan. Cities must meet one of two guidelines to receive the funding, 1) amount of low to moderate income households, or 2) slum and blight designation. Woodbine qualified under the first criterion. IDED recently requested Woodbine complete a property inventory to declare the district a slum and blight district so both criteria are met. This will enable the City to include some properties that were initially not included in the plan. Moved by Loftus, seconded by Sherer, to adopt Resolution 11-7-2 “A Resolution to Adopt the Boundaries of the Woodbine Downtown Revitali-zation Master Plan and Approve the Survey of Buildings and Public Improvements Within the Façade Master Plan Project in the City of Woodbine, Iowa.” 4 ayes. LuAnn Kahle, Helen Rogers and Kathy Alvis, members of the Harrison County Humane Society, updated the Mayor and council on the organization. HCHS has received donations of land in Magnolia and Missouri Valley and are currently working on grants to fund building a facility. The group presented a Financial Schedule 28E Agreement they are proposing to the 10 cities located in Harrison County to help support the Harrison County Humane Society. In this proposal the HCHS is asking for $4.00/per person per year making Woodbine’s annual cost $5,836.00. Alvis said the 28E agreement funding will be used to run a top quality facility, including utilities and salaries for one full-time or a couple part-time employees. The funding will not be used toward construction of a building. The Mayor applauded the group on their efforts The Council and Mayor will review the agreement and make a decision at a later date. Tammy Barrett applied for Tax Increment Financing for 63-5th Street and 509 Walker Street. The amounts requested were $28,000 and $20,000 over a 10 year time period. Moved by Loftus, seconded by Stephany, to table the TIF requests until the next regular meeting. This will give City Administrator Gaa time to call Dorsey & Whitney per request of Councilmember Sherer, and get correct dollar amounts for agreements. 4 ayes. Moved by Andersen, seconded by Loftus to adopt Resolution 11-82 “Resolution to Approve a Loan Agreement Between the City of Woodbine and Walker Corners Limited Liability Company,” 4 ayes.

Renovations are underway on 428 Walker Street, owned by Walker Corners Limited Liability Company, with funds for the project available through a Community Development Block Grant to the City of Woodbine. This resolution approves the City to make $175,000.00 available to Walker Corners as a repayable loan. Moved by Stephany, seconded by Loftus, for the Council to go into closed session at 6:40 p.m. to discuss personnel matters with City Administrator Joe Gaa. The Mayor put the question on the motion and roll call was answered by Loftus, Andersen, Stephany and Sherer voting aye. Moved by Sherer, seconded by Stephany, to adjourn closed session and reconvene open meeting at 6:50 p.m. The Mayor put the question on the motion and roll call was answered by Loftus, Andersen, Stephany and Sherer voting aye. Moved by Sherer, seconded by Andersen, for the council to go into closed session at 6:55 p.m. to discuss personnel matters with Chief of Police Andy Arndt. The Mayor put the question on the motion and roll call was answered by Loftus, Andersen, Stephany and Sherer voting aye. Moved by Andersen, seconded by Loftus, to adjourn closed session and reconvene open meeting at 7:20 p.m. The Mayor put the question on the motion and roll call was answered by Loftus, Andersen, Stephany and Sherer voting aye. The Mayor and City Administrator were asked at the June 20 Council Meeting to create a work improvement plan for the twomonth probationary period for Chief of Policy Andy Arndt. Arndt was involved in an automobile accident while on duty in April of 2010. He has been treated for shoulder pain since then and the doctor has urged him to have corrective surgery for a number of months. Arndt scheduled surgery for July 12, and is expected to be on medical leave six to eight weeks. Moved by Andersen to grant Arndt time to undergo surgery and recovery before starting the work improvement plan. The motion died for a lack of a second. Moved by Stephany, seconded by Sherer, to rescind the two-month probation action at the June 20, 2011 Council Meeting and revisit the issue after Arndt returns from medical leave. Roll call vote: Stephany aye, Sherer aye, Loftus aye, Andersen, nay. Meeting adjourned at 7:37 p.m. William H. Hutcheson, Mayor ATTEST: Lois Surber, City Clerk

Legals PUBLIC NOTICE HARRISON COUNTY SUPERVISORS PROCEEDINGS June 9, 2011 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Engineer Tom Stoner, Engineer, informed the Board that his department is providing substantial services to public entities for flooding and will be using the same rates as local haulers. Seig Drainage District ....The Board of Supervisors convened as the Trustees for the Seig Drainage District. Also present were Susan Bonham, Auditor; Elizabeth Lenz, Drainage Clerk; Jennifer Mumm, Drainage Attorney and Warren Christy, Ryan Dougherty, Attorney, Larry Meyer, Alex Meyer, Charles Lindhorst, Nancy Meyer, Alice Christy and Jim Olinger, interested parties. The Board requested a recommendation from Jennifer Mumm regarding these two questions: 1. Who makes the decisions, including the running of the pump, for the District? 2. Can a second pump be added if necessary? ....Jennifer responded as follows: The Trustees, acting for the landowners in the District, are the decision makers. A second pump added creates a liability that Jennifer does not feel that she could uphold in a court of law. It was noted that the Board has no intention of turning of the pump as long as the landowners are benefiting from the pumping. Jennifer also stated that she was willing to review any additional information that may differ from her findings. McNeill Drainage District The Board, acting as Trustees for the McNeill Drainage District, passed the following two resolutions: Due to the high water and flooding, the McNeill main ditch needs to be pumped into the Monona Harrison ditch. With the stipulation that this motion can be rescinded if any flooding is caused in Harrison County by the pumping, a motion was made to pump the water from the McNeil main ditch into the Monona Harrison ditch by Utman, seconded by Pitt. Unanimous approval. On a motion by Utman, second by Pitt, a 10% assessment was set for 2011 in the McNeill Drainage District. Unanimous approval Pictometry Jeremy Buttrick, GIS Administrator, met with the Board regarding having a portion of the County reflown at a later date to show the flooded areas. These maps would be very useful to area agencies and for reporting purposes with the potential disaster declarations. Estimated cost is $40,000. Motion to approve by Utman, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. Flood Update Sheriff Sears, Larry Oliver and Will Utter (homeland security) met with the Board. Mr. Utter explained that Governor Branstad is requesting a Presidential declaration and needs preliminary expense costs from public entities on preparing for the flood. Sheriff Sears said that the City of Modale was looking into building a berm around the city similar to what Blencoe has installed.

PUBLIC NOTICE HARRISON COUNTY SUPERVISORS PROCEEDINGS June 30, 2011 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Previous minutes were approved on a motion by Utman, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. Visitor: David Bentsen Engineer Tom Stoner, Engineer, met with the Board. General discussion. No action required. Flood update .....Sheriff Sears and Emergency Management Director Larry Oliver updated the board on current conditions. Individuals are checking the levees twice a day. A meeting on public assistance applicants briefing is scheduled for next week in Council Bluffs. This is for local governments and qualified non-profit organizations only.

Mr. Oliver also informed the board that the road department has been very cooperative when assistance is needed. Public Health Preparedness and Response Plan Tabby Melby reviewed the plan with the board. The plan was approved on a motion by Utman, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. FY11 Audit Auditor Bonham requested that the State Auditor’s Office prepare the County’s FY11 audit. Motion to approve by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Handwritten warrants Handwritten warrants for US Bank for $8,261.37; Marianne Woodward for $952.75; CSS for $19,000; CTI for $389.00 and Office Stop for $76.95. Motion to approve by Pitt, second by Utman. Unanimous approval. Mileage Rate .Auditor Bonham announced that the IRS is increasing the maximum allowable mileage rate to 55.5 cents per mile effective July 1, 2011. Under the county’s policy the mileage rate mirrors the IRS maximum so therefore, the County’s mileage rate will also increase to 55.5 cents per mile effective July 1, 2011. Solider Valley Drainage District .Elizabeth Lenz, Drainage Clerk, reported to the Board on an email she received from Brent Olson, who is with DNR. It was reported to him that a landowner 1 1/3 miles south of Pisgah had breached the Soldier River dike. This area of the Solider

River is in the Soldier Valley Drainage District, governed by the Board of Supervisors. Rick Shearer was directed to review the area and reported back to the board that there was a skid loader in the area and some work had been done. IT was decided to have Ashley West, Assistant County Attorney, send a certified letter to the landowner explaining the laws of drainage districts and request him to stop any kind of work being done. Utman Levee Drainage District The Board met as trustees for the Utman Levee Drainage District. Also present were: Elizabeth Lenz, Drainage Clerk; Auditor Bonham and Warren Christy, landowner. A petition was presented requesting the Board to repair and maintain the Utman dike. The drainage attorney has informed the Board that they can repair the dike to its original specifications without notice as long as there are no improvements. They can also deny the petition if the cost to repair outweighs the benefits received. An approximate cost of $30,000 to $50,000 to bring the district back to original state was given by the drainage clerk but a closer estimate cannot be determined until an engineer’s report is completed. Much discussion was had on whether this is a true benefit to the Utman district. Mr. Utman feels that the benefit is no longer there as originally designed especially since the Rand Petersen levee was put in place after the Utman levee. On a motion by Pitt, second by Smith, an engineer’s report of the Utman

Levee Drainage District was ordered. Ayes: Smith, Pitt. Nayes: Utman. Motion carried. Change in Appropriations A resolution requesting a change in appropriations was presented to the Board. Auditor Bonham requested increasing 09210 Safety of Workplace by $17,600 and decreasing 09030 Other Policy Admin. By $17,600; and increasing 06020 Solid Waste Disposal by $3 and decreasing 06320 Economic Development by $3. Motion to approve the change in appropriations was made by Utman, second by Pitt. Unanimous approval. Cash Count The Board counted the revenues in the Treasurer’s Office and Recorder’s Office. Treasurer: Cash ...............................$471.00 Safe ..................................527.00 Auto ....................................60.00 Drivers License.................100.00 Cash Item .............................2.00 Deposits in Transit .....255,265.21 CD/MM ...................8,946,938.10 TOTAL ..................$9,203,363.31 Recorder: Cash .................................100.00 Deposits in Transit ............495.40 Accts.

The Woodbine Twiner

Sports Lady Tigers softball team ends season at .500 CAYDE SPRECKER For The Twiner The Lady Tiger’s season had symmetry to it in 2011. Exactly 30 games were played with 15 wins and 15 losses making their record .500. The eliminating loss in the regional tournament to the Treynor Cardinals (now one of the eight teams headed to Fort Dodge for the State Finals after securing a berth with a 2-0 win over Hinton July 13) was hard to take. Numbers don’t lie and for the Lady Tigers the statistics they put up this year might be a way to keep their heads up. The promise of next year can be seen in this season’s stats, especially on a team returning all but one of its players (graduating Senior outfielder Bekka Boer) next year. In 939 at-bats this season, the Lady Tiger’s put ball to bat for an average of .242. That’s 227 hits, 58 doubles, 18 triples and one homerun counted. With that display of hitting prowess, the Lady Tigers put 182 runners around the bases (that’s an average of about six runs a game). One hundred and fifty of those runs were batted in by Tiger

teammates for RBIs. When balls were being hit at the Lady Tigers this season they managed to hold things together, racking up one 173 assists and 583 put outs. Eleven opposing runners were caught stealing out of the 72 runs that opponents made to cheat up a base. In other words, the Lady Tigers sent just over 15 percent of all would be base thieves back to the dugout, and the errors were held to 73 over the course of the season or about two and a half errors per game. The pitching staff entered also put some numbers in the books not the least impressive of which is an opponent batting average of 0.166. In 201 2/3 innings, the Lady Tiger pitching staff walked 127 batters and put 227 batters away with three strikes right across the plate. The Lady Tigers even picked up a shutout in the 2011 season. Head Coach Rita Melby seems to be steering Woodbines softball future in a new direction. Her statement at the beginning of the season that this would be a “rebuilding year” will hopefully come across as true when the Lady Tigers return to the diamond in the Hannah Goodrich takes her turn at bat during a June 29 game against Whiting. summer of 2012. The Lady Tigers finished their season 15-15. Photo: Jeff Davis

Five steps to a winning start for the year Alegent Health is asking the public to recognize the importance of keeping young athletes on the playing field – and off – by stressing the importance of health screenings and overall wellness. “A sports exam quickly identifies immediate health issues to address before your child can safely play a sport, but it’s no substitute for a complete physical,” Harry Cohen, M.D., a physician with Alegent Health Clinic in Woodbine, said. While sports physicals clear the way for your child to play athletics, a complete wellness exam is required in Iowa before a child enters kindergarten, seventh grade or transfers from an out-of-state school. However, children of any age reap benefits from a doctor’s visit. Cohen suggests five ways to help children enjoy a winning season

and healthy school year: 1. Get in shape. Focus on the activity your child enjoys doing. In addition, you can guide your child in writing an exercise plan with a schedule of weekly workout times, and encourage him to keep track of how long he worked out and his activity (cardio, lifting, etc.). This can make it easier to change things up, Cohen said. And remember, specific stretching or strengthening activities can help prevent injuries. 2. Set realistic goals. Before the sports season starts, set a few goals. Just having goals can be a great motivator. 3. Schedule a sports physical early. Set up a sports physical about six weeks before the season begins to allow time for follow-up if you need one. This physical involves: A medical history with questions about: serious illnesses

or sudden death among family members; allergies; childhood illnesses; chronic past injuries; hospitalizations; and medications. Student athletes may be asked if they use drugs, alcohol or dietary supplements, including steroids, performance enhancers or diet pills. The physical exam with special attention to: blood pressure and pulse, heart murmurs, vision, breathing and posture, flexibility and muscle strength. 4. Consider a sports camp. Sports camps can help players brush up on skills before the season starts. Many schools offer various camps during the summer. 5. Be proactive with annual wellness exams. “A well-child exam is important for kids of all ages to assure they are as healthy as possible before going back to school,” said Dr. Cohen. “This is often the only

visit most of them have with their doctor every year, and it’s invaluable.” During the exam, your doctor takes a complete medical history and conducts a physical including: growth and development; heart, lungs and other system functions; vision and hearing; updates vaccinations; checks reflexes; and screens for scoliosis, high cholesterol levels, diabetes and lead poisoning. Depending on your child’s age, your doctor may also discuss everything from bicycle helmet safety to concerns about alcohol, drugs, smoking and sexual activity. This is also a time to talk about wellness topics, such as diet and exercise. “Certainly physicians are paying more attention to childhood obesity and talk with kids about the healthy choices they can make at school.” Cohen said.

Tigers end season with a 10-9 loss CAYDE SPRECKER For The Twiner The Woodbine Tigers first season under head coach Jeff Powers, came to an end much as was predicted with a 10-9 loss to nearby rival the Boyer Valley Bulldogs July 13. The team had just five wins going into the post-season, but there was precedent for Tiger victory in a 13-9 win over the Bulldogs June 6. The knowledge of previous wins wasn’t quite enough for the Tigers who ended their season with a .210 batting average, 97 runs scored, and 101 hits recorded. The Woodbine team, which remained without the benefit of seniors all season, sprinted for 18 doubles, a lone triple and walked 82 times in 482 atbats. While on the defensive side of the game, the Tigers committed 63 errors and managed to catch eight runners stealing bases. The season gave them 227 two putouts. In dealing with pitching staff, opponents averaged .224 and were struck out 134. Eighty-six batters took their bases, 76 were walked and the other 10 took a pitch from the Tigers to the body. The Tigers are poised to return the entire team from this year and, with lessons learned from a 2011 building season, may have a more successful 2012 season.

Agricultural disaster designation declared for Harrison County On July 14, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad approved a proclamation to help low-income families affected by flooding along the Missouri River. Branstad approved an individual assistance grant program to help residents in Harrison County as well as the counties of Woodbury,

Monona, Pottawattamie, Mills and Fremont. The program provides grants to families with household incomes at or below twice the federal poverty level. The maximum grant a family can receive is $5,000. The Army Corps of Engineers announced it was projecting smaller

releases at Gavins Point Dam. Weather permitting, Corps officials plan to drop to 155,000 cubic feet per second of water on July 30 and 150,000 cfs by Aug. 1. The release rate has been 160,000 cfs since June 25. According to Colonel Robert Ruch, commander for the Omaha District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, this is not the time to let down their guard. Ruch said he’d seen some “sunny” news reports and he wants “to make sure that folks don’t

get too happy.” In helpful news to the agricultural area, the United States Department of Agriculture has approved Branstad’s request for a disaster designation in six Iowa counties including Harrison. A disaster designation makes farm operators in both primary and contiguous counties eligible to be considered for assistance from the FSA, provided eligibility requirements are met. The assistance includes FSA loans and Supplemental

Revenue Assistance Payments Program. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of a disaster declaration to apply for emergency loan assistance. Also available to Iowa residents who have United Healthcare HawkI insurance. It is helping those affected by the ongoing floods in Iowa. Assistance includes special measures to help ensure UnitedHealthcare Hawk-I plan participants residing in counties that have declared a state of

emergency continue to have access to care and prescription medications and financial support of the Red Cross’ relief efforts in affected communities. They can call (800) 464-9484 to contact customer service. The Iowa Department of Transportation deactivated its temporary flood-related road information call center as of July 12. Road closures continue and Iowa travelers may continue to call 511 for automated road closure information or (800) 288-1047.
