‘Welcome Home, Hometown Heroes’ slated July 28 It was played at the ceremony in Shenandoah as members of the 1-168th Infantry of the Iowa Army National Guard returned home last week. The boys are back in town. Approximately a dozen Woodbine soldiers returned home from overseas last Tuesday and Wednesday, arriving in Denison, Shenandoah and Red Oak before returning to Woodbine. “They were called by their commander in chief, the president of the United States, to do a job. And they have completed it. And they did their job well, Marlin Tillman of Shenandoah, a past state commander of the American Legion who spoke at the ceremony there, said. Members of the Iowa Army National Guard 1168th Infantry Battalion out of Shenandoah returned home from a 12-month deployment with Operation Enduring Freedom returned home July 19. Hundreds of people braved the oppressive heat and humidity to pay tribute to the brave men and women as they arrived on charter busses that took them from Fort McCoy in Wisconsin, south through Corning, Clarinda, Shenandoah and, eventually, home. After soldiers were reunited with their families in Shenandoah, the following day, July 20, 334th Brigade Support Battalion of the 1-168th of the Iowa Guard’s Brigade Combat Team returned home to Red Oak and the Delta Company of the Iowa Guard’s 1-168th Infantry Battalion returned to Denison. “These Iowans – the hardest working bunch of soldiers I’ve ever been around,” said 1st Lt. Justin Schultz of Council Bluffs, Delta Company’s executive officer. They returned with their eyes open about the difficulties in Paktkia Province, said Schultz, but they also returned feeling like they made a See SOLDIERS Page 6

Approximately a dozen Woodbine soldiers arrived home July 19 and 20, arriving in Shenandoah, Red Oak and Denison. It was a happy, tearful reunion for Army National Guard Sergeant First Class Rob Neligh of the Bravo Company, 1-168th infantry, part of the second brigade 34th infantry division as he is reunited with a smiling daughter, Kaitlin, and a tearful daughter, Kylie.

John Leonard grew up in Woodbine, but his career as a band director has taken him all over the world. His home these days is Shanghai, China, where he lives with his wife, French-Canadian Manon Crepeau, and their 20-year-old daugh-

ter, Margot, who attends university in Montreal. Leonard teaches high school band, orchestra and IB Music (collegelevel music class) at the Shanghai American School, a passion he said he developed in the sixth grade. He attended Woodbine Community School and warmly remembers Loie

McElwain, choir director, and Lee Triplett, band director, for their wonderful efforts. “I sang in the choir and Barbershop Quartets, but the band was a stronger pull for me,” he said. The path for him was clear. He graduated from Woodbine in 1968, attended Wayne State See LEONARD Page 6

NIKKI DAVIS Editor Weed Warriors were needed to help keep the entrance to Woodbine looking beautiful – and are needed once again to keep Woodbine’s Community Garden thriving. Sustainability Coordinator for the Green Pilot Copmmittee Alana Smith, nicknamed “The Green Girl,” was hired through funding from the Energy Corp Vista program to work towards keeping Woodbine a “green” community. And that’s what she intended to do by starting the Community Garden with help from city volunteers this past April. Students and community members chipped in to help plant the garden located near First and Weare Streets. Potatoes, peas, onion, basil, tomatoes, corn, peppers, broccoli and cucumbers were planted and seem to be thriving. In Chapel Hill, N.C. where Smith hails from, the community has been promoting community gardens over the years. Smith herself was part of a campus garden while attending the University of North Carolina and, just before moving to Woodbine, was part of her neighborhood’s See GARDEN Page 6

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


Two groups with a common purpose


oodbine Betterment and Development Corporation was formed in the early 1980s to promote business development and beautification in the community of Woodbine. The organization has a nine person board elected by the organization’s membership, and the city administrator serves on the board as a liaison between the city and the board. Current board members are Jackie Thomsen (President), Noel Sherer, (Vice President), Darin Smith (Secretary), Roger Kenkel (Treasurer), Paul Fouts, Bob Sullivan, Zell Millard, Todd Heistand, Joe Farley and Joe Gaa (City Administrator). Woodbine Main Street Business Improvement Committee was formed about four years ago, in conjunction with becoming a designated Main Street Iowa community, to promote business development and revitalization in the downtown district of Woodbine. This group is one of four committees (along with Promotion, Design and Organization) associated with the Woodbine Main Street-Chamber. These four committees comprise a Four Point approach to revitalization of the downtown district. The business improvement group meetings are open to anyone interested in assisting with downtown development and revitalization. Monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 a.m. There are probably too many active members to list them all, but each person that attends and supports the development efforts is a valuable contributor to the group – and everyone is welcome. Co-Chairs Noel Sherer and Bob Sullivan may be contacted for additional information about the business improvement committee. Additionally, the Woodbine Main Street-Chamber board president Lynn Clark or main street-chamber program coordinator Debra Sprecker, may be contacted for more information about the Woodbine Main StreetChamber. These two groups in our community share the common purpose of business development. Often, the two groups work together utilizing the strengths of each organization to accomplish our common goals. Perhaps the main distinction between the two groups is the area of focus. Woodbine Betterment and Development is focused on development and beautification in the entire community, while the Woodbine Main Street Business Improvement is focused on development and revitalization solely in the downtown district. Both groups welcome community ideas and are willing to assist with prospective business development projects that better our community. Both groups are concerned about business retention and the quality of life for the citizens of Woodbine. Hopefully this information clarifies a few of the questions community members may have about two groups in our community with a common purpose. If anyone would like to know more about either organization, please contact any of the individuals listed in this article

Focus on food ... or away from it


t’s that time of year again! For those of you that have followed this column over the past few years, I bet you know what’s about to come … the annual Anderson Family Reunion at Fillenwarth Beach in Okoboji column. It ‘tis the season once again! My mother has already baked entirely too many cookies and our family has planned out their evening’s meal. Each of the Anderson sisters (Aunt Karron, Aunt Jean and then my mom and Tammy share a night because we have the smallest families), take turns cooking the meal Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night. My crazy family and crazy cousin Tammy always pick a theme. This year … it’s going to be a pajama party! If you’re reading this on Wednesday, we’re either preparing the food or sitting down to eat in our jammies. We are bringing board games for the kids (between the ages of 1 and 70), having popcorn and just having fun. In years past, we’ve done themes like the carnival, Mardi Gras, Halloween, group birthday party and so many more! We always match the food to the theme … so we make some pretty crazy stuff. But that’s what we go for. We just go for family, friends … and FOOD. My mother always overdoes it. She spends about the entire two weeks before ‘Boji baking. Chocolate drop quickies (my fave), monster cookies, chocolate chip, chocolate star, puppy chow, peanut butter, sugar cookies, freezes pizza burgers … And when we get there, she’ll go to the grocery store and buy five different sugary cereals, lunch meat, bread, buns, frozen breakfast items like pigs on a blanket, chips, snacks (as if we needed any more) and, most importantly to the Andersons, booze. Yup. There’s nothing like having a beer with those that know you the most and have known you since you were born. Normally I can’t wait to get my hands on all of that good stuff! But this year … well … it’s a little different. Those that know me have seen and noticed the


difference. I am finally, finally, finally working off the baby weight. In fact, I’ve recently worked off the marriage weight. Even when I began here, I was already spiraling into my chunky years. Now – I reclaimed myself. I remembered those rules from being a gymnast all those years ago. I remembered what it took to keep myself in shape – and enjoy myself while I was doing it. And, to date, I’ve shed about 35 pounds. That means I’ve lost as much weight as my 2 year old now weighs. How? Portion control and exercise. I forgot how much I like to exercise. I love to jog. I love to walk. I even enjoy hitting the heavy bag in the basement and doing reps while watching TV. So this year in ‘Boji, I decided to compromise. I still MUST eat, drink and be merry with my family. After all … it still IS vacation, you know. However, I promised myself I would not sit down with the Tupperware full of chocolate drop quickies and eat 22 of them at a time. I promised myself I would have ONE pizza burger for lunch instead of three. I promised to have toast for breakfast and not three bowls of cereal. I promised to snack on some fruit and low-cal granola bars instead of ice cream buried in chocolate. I promised to not eat McDonalds five times during the week. I promised myself I wouldn’t be the sole horder of the puppy chow. I made a lot of promises I hope I can keep. However, I just CAN’T let mom’s baking go to waste ……… I’ll just have to avoid the scale for about a week or so when I get back! So here’s to food, family and being healthy!

Japanese beetles will be here soon


his week I got a call from someone in a county adjacent to Harrison who had Japanese beetles feeding on raspberries. No, not the Asian ladybeetles that swarm us in the fall, but actual Japanese beetles. No doubt we will become as familiar with these gregarious pests in the coming years, but so that you can be on the lookout, here is some information from the Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic at ISU about Japanese beetles. Japanese beetles were first reported in east central Iowa in 1994, and have slowly been advancing to the west since. Adult Japanese beetles (JB) emerge in midJune through July. They are similar to other Junebugs in general appearance, and are 3/8 inch long and 1/4 inch wide. The head and thorax (front parts) are

shiny metallic green, and the wing covers are coppery red. The row of five tufts of white hairs on each side of the abdomen is a distinguishing feature. JB larvae are typical white grubs. They are in the soil from August until June where they feed on plant roots (especially turfgrass) and organic matter. The grubs are C-shaped and approximately 1.25 inches when full grown. Adult beetles eat the foliage, fruits and flowers of over 300 plants. Foliage is consumed by eating the tissue between the veins, a type of feeding called skeletonizing. Flowers and fruits are often devoured completely, often by a horde of a dozen or more beetles at a time. For the most part, plants are not killed, but defoliation and de-petaling can be impressive with variation from plant to plant. Control of adult beetles

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator is difficult because they emerge every day for a period of several weeks. Handpicking or screening of high-value plants may help in isolated situations and with limited numbers of beetles. Spot spraying infested foliage of high value plants with carbaryl (Sevin), permethrin (Eight) or cyfluthrin (Tempo) may reduce damage for several days, but multiple applications are required to maintain control, and it is clearly too late to start this year. Merit insecticide (systemic) also can work, but never use it on plants that produce fruit or edible products. And, spraying the adult stage is not an effective strate-

gy for prevention of white grubs next year. Several traps using a floral lure and sex attractant are available. BUT!!! Use of these traps is not recommended. Research conducted in Kentucky and in Ames suggests that they are not effective in controlling moderate to heavy infestations; more importantly, they may attract more beetles into a yard than would occur otherwise. There is only one generation a year, and any you have now should die off by early August. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at or (712) 644-2105.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR TO THE COMMUNITY OF WOODBINE: I would like to take the opportunity to tell you how nice the town of Woodbine is looking. The new store fronts are very attractive colors, the new clinic is beautiful and all the greenery being planted sure sets things off. Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to make the

White Floral Gardens accessible to all. Also I would like to mention the many fine residents of the Rose Vista Nursing Home. Spending a lot of time there has brought different thoughts to my mind about sharing your time with them. When walking your pets for exercise etc. – could you include Normal Street on your route? The residents sit-

ting by the front windows would enjoy watching the pets as they stroll by. Children are also a delight to them. If your kids like to do a funny dress up day – walk by and show the people their creativity! Smiles from children will bring smiles from the residents. If you can think of something that could bring some joy – check with the staff –

they need to know times and if its something they approve of. I’m grateful to have grown up in the Woodbine community where the people were caring and friendly. I enjoy seeing old friends and acquaintances. May you continue to prosper in your endeavors. CAROLYN (HANSEN) WALDEMER

Department on Aging ‘Community Conversation’ The Iowa Department of Aging is holding community conversations across the state this summer to provide an opportunity to understand the aging network and use the opportunity to understand aging concerns. This will also be an opportunity to discuss House File 45, the legislative mandate to reduce the number of Area Agencies on Aging. A meeting is scheduled from 12:30 to 2 p.m., July 28 at Iowa Western Community College in Atlantic. The department is interested in hearing from residents regarding retirement, caregiving for a loved one, transportation, home health care, senior housing, healthy living, elder abuse/exploitation, nutrition or any other aging topic. House File 45 is legislation passed and signed by the governor this year, that requires the Department on Aging to develop a plan for reducing the number of area agencies on aging in the state effective July 1, 2012. Currently the Department on Aging is working on developing a specific plan that would be provided to the aging network as soon as possible in regards to the reorganization and establishment of new planning and service areas.

Firefly Recycle bins return to Harrison County Program at Willow Lake DAN BARRY Harrison County Landfill Commission Solid Waste Manager

Harrison County Conservation Board will have a program on fireflies at the Willow Lake Recreation Area from 8-9 p.m. July 29 in the large shelter by the campground or in the Nature Encounter Center if there is rain. Information will also be available on a citizen scientist program observing fireflies in your backyard. No cost or registration. For more information, call HCCB at 712-647-2785 ext. 12 or visit us on Facebook.

The blue and green recycling bins will be returning to all Harrison County towns beginning the week of Aug. 1. The recycling center, located at Crossroads of Western Iowa in Missouri Valley, has informed the Harrison County Landfill Commission that they have begun moving back. The estimated timeframe for getting everything in place is a two to three week process. With this information, the HCLC will begin returning blue and green recycling bins to all Harrison County locations beginning Aug. 1. It is anticipated the placement of all bins will only take two to three days. In anticipation of all the recycle products which Harrison County residents may have been

stockpiling, the HCLC believes the recycle bins will fill up quickly. The HCLC encourages recycle bin users to break down items in order to help with the collection process. The HCLC plans on servicing the recycle bins in a quicker timeframe for the first few weeks in order to collect all recycle product residents have been saving. The HCLC asks all residents make sure the correct recycle items are placed in the correct bin compartment. Each recy-

cle compartment has a decal next to the door stating which product should be placed in that compartment. The public’s help in getting the correct product in the compartments helps the recycle center in their processing of the material. Also, please remember the recycle bins are not for trash. There has been an increase in nonrecyclable materials being placed in the recycle bins which creates an unsafe work condition for the recycle workers and contaminates the recycle product so that some recyclables wind up in the landfill. As always, please feel free to call the HCLC Facility at (800) 672-3093, or locally at (712) 6443093. The public’s assistance and understanding in this flood related issues is appreciated.

Public information sought regarding Iowa’s public roads This past March, Governor Branstad established the G o v e r n o r ’ s Transportation 2020 Citizens Advisory Commission. The CAC was tasked with assisting the Iowa Department of Transportation in completing its legislatively mandated review of the “current levels of the road use tax fund and the sufficiency of those revenues for the projected construction and maintenance needs of city, county and state

governments in the future.” A vital part of the CAC’s effort is seeking public input across Iowa on the current conditions of Iowa’s public roadway system and options to address funding shortfalls. To accomplish this part of their mission, the CAC will hold public input meetings across Iowa. Anyone with an interest in Iowa’s public roadway system is encouraged to attend one or more of the fol-

Dove Hunting approved

Iowa FSA provides livestock assistance for high temps

Final approval of a rule that will allow the hunting of mourning doves in Iowa was approved July 14 by the Iowa Natural Resource Commission which also added an amendment that would require hunters to use non-toxic shot. The non-toxic shot requirement follows several discussions by the commission during the past year concerning the impacts of lead shot to the environment and on wildlife. Lead – or toxic – shot used in hunting can be ingested by wildlife. There has been a national ban on the use of lead shot since 1991 with non-toxic shot for waterfowl being in place in Iowa since 1987. The rules approved by the commission allow for a dove season starting Sept. 1 and ending Nov. 9. The final rule allows the harvest of 15 doves a day and can be either mourning or Eurasian collared-doves. The possession limit is 30 and the season is open statewide. Commissioners added and approved an amendment that would require hunters to only use non-toxic shot while hunting doves anywhere in the state of Iowa. The decision to ban toxic shot for dove hunting was based largely on the fact that much of the hunting occurs over a small area which would increase the likelihood of lead concentrations being created.

Livestock producers who incur eligible livestock death losses due to the recent extreme temperatures and other adverse weather events ,may be eligible for the USDA Farm Service Agency’s Livestock Indemnity Program. “Extreme temperatures have impacted many of our livestock producers. Those producers who have suffered eligible livestock losses should contact our offices to file a notice of loss,” State Executive Director for Iowa’s Farm Service Agency John R. Whitaker said. For 2011 calendar year livestock death losses, producers must provide a notice of loss on the

FSA-914 form the earlier of the following: 30 calendar days of when the loss of livestock was apparent to the producer; Oct. 31. “Producers who suffered eligible livestock losses due to adverse weather will be required to provide documentation of the livestock lost for the LIP Program. FSA staff can provide producers with a list of acceptable loss documentation,” Whitaker said. Adequate documentation must prove the death of eligible livestock occurred as a direct result of an eligible adverse weather event in the calendar year for which benefits are being requested. If adequate

proof of death documentation is not available, certifications of livestock deaths by third parties, who are not affiliated with the farming operation, may be accepted. LIP indemnity payments will be

Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs assists Byways mapping project Through a grant from the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, Iowa Community Cultural Grant program, hundreds of art, cultural and historical locations have been marked along Iowa’s Byways using GPS units. Northeast Iowa Resource Conservation & Development, Inc., located in Postville, received the grant in 2010 and worked with seven partner RC&Ds to coordinate the collection of GPS points along each of Iowa’s 11 designated byways. The ICCG funding specifically created job opportunities for 13 part-time byway enthusiasts to GPS art, cultural and historical locations. One of the byways involved in western

Iowa is the western segment of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway. The Lincoln Highway, conceived in 1913, was America’s first transcontinental improved highway. It passed through 13 states as it crossed the country and the Iowa route winds its way through 13 counties as it crosses the state of Iowa. The Iowa route closely follows U.S. Highway 30 and was designated as Iowa’s first and only “heritage” byway in 2006. The M&M Divide Resource Conservation and Development manages Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway development in Greene, Carroll, Crawford, Harrison and Pottawattamie counties

and can be reached at (712) 659-3799. The Iowa Community Cultural Grant helped to mark the locations of cultural and historic elements along the byway. The data collected is being used in the creation of new maps for byway management as well as to update information contained in the byways existing corridor management plan. The GPS data gathered through this project will help the byway’s steering committee and community partners better manage, preserve, protect and promote the unique historical and cultural qualities that contributed to the routes byway designation. “The project is especially important given the fact that the number one request at Iowa’s Welcome Centers is for information about Iowa’s Byways,” project director for this statewide project Deneb Woods said. “This project will not only help us better understand our historic, cultural and art resources along the byways, it will also help all the byways develop quality information for visitors who are looking for things to do in Iowa. The research completed by the Welcome Centers also showed that our visitors are looking for opportunities to experience historical sites along our byways so Northeast Iowa RC&D was pleased to be able to provide leadership for this project.” For more information about the Iowa’s Byways Program please visit sbyway.

How does your garden grow? ‘Welcome Home, From GARDEN Page 1 community garden. The idea itself was a while in the making as Smith discussed the idea with the City of Woodbine, the Green Committee and Horizons. Ultimately, Horizons opted to fund the project with Gary’s Ag donating fertilizer, Larry Dunlop plowing the land and Duane Mann helping with whatever he could. “Duane tilled the land and also helped with the planting – teaching Woodbine students about the plants and the process as he went along,” Smith said. And Smtih believes in what Woodbine’s community garden could mean to the community of Woodbine – but realizes she, and the garden, may need a little help.

“I maintain it right now with the Latch Key students. They’ve been helping me weed it,” Smith said. “But we really need help to weed the garden and occasionally water it.” Her goal isn’t to get a few people putting hours worth of work into the project, though. “What I would love to see is a lot of people volunteer for just a few hours over the course of the summer until the garden plants can be harvested,” she said. Part of Smith’s goal of the garden was to produce fresh vegetables – but she wanted Woodbine residents to understand the importance of a community garden and how it will help keep Woodbine green. “A community garden

teaches members about gardening and provides the community with fresh, local fruits and vegetables. Eating local food cuts down on emissions produced from the transportation of imported goods,” Smith said. Already, the peas have begun to be picked and more produce should be ripe and ready within the next one to two months. The goods, some at least, will be sent home with the Latch Key students who have helped maintain the garden since its fruition, or used in the classrooms at the Woodbine Community School. “The produce will also be donated to the others who volunteer in the garden to other community members who will benefit from it most,” Smith said.

So as Smith’s garden continues to grow, she remains hopeful that community members will step up to help keep Woodbine, and themselves, green. “The garden is a great learning tool for kids over the summer and I feel like it’s important to stress locally grown food in communities,” Smith said. “Personal or community gardens are a great way for citizens to have food that hasn’t travelled hundreds of miles, emitting many greenhouse gases. The garden does have a lot of weeds growing up in it, but there is a lot of good stuff that has come through.” If interested in volunteering, contact Alana Smith at 647-2550 or via e-mail at

Hometown Heroes’ slated for July 28

Leonard’s love of music takes him around the world From LEONARD Page 1 College, then passed the audition as a tuba player for the U.S. Military Academy Band, West Point, N.Y. After West Point, school band director positions were rare. His parents, Ike and Zoe Leonard, spotted an ad in the Omaha World Herald: 'Wanted: Band director. Barrhead, Alberta, Canada. “After the second phone interview, the superintendent hired me.” he said. In Barrhead, Canada Leonard launched his career; met his wife and became interested in the international teaching circuit from Alberta colleagues. “I know the American Field Service (AFS) program in high school was a catalyst for my interest in the world and I was interested,” Leonard said. So he and his wife applied for jobs. Their first stop was Dubai, United Arab Emirates, but in 1986, after three years, the

country suffered an oil bust and the band position was cut. Leonard continued his mission to see the world. He landed in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, at a school run by the Saudi Arabia Airlines Corporation. The job had a big perk – free travel anywhere in the world. The pair would arrive at the airport and literally write their own tickets. “We’d say, ‘Should we go to Istanbul, London, Athens or Frankfurt this weekend?’ Each fall, I would fly to NYC for the day, helicopter into Manhattan, purchase music, see a Yankees game then fly back to Jeddah and go to work the next day. For 10 years we traveled and traveled,” Leonard said. After their daughter was born during the first Gulf War, the couple moved to the port city of Karachi, Pakistani. They loved the strong culture of the country but the gun culture caused them

to end their stay after two years. “A top-notch school. Just excellent,” Leonard noted. He and his wife were hired to start a new school in Muscat, Oman, a “beautiful, unknown jewel of the Middle East.” “Oman was like Middle East for beginners,” Leonard joked. “If a person didn’t understand Islam and the Muslim culture, Oman provided a very gentle introduction- sometimes referred to as ‘the Presbyterian world of Islam’. The desert dunes, the fiords and the ocean were magnificent.” Four years later, Leonard and family moved to Lagos, Nigeria. They most enjoyed the strong textile colors plus the large stature and wonderful smiles of the people. They travelled the backwaters in canoes and witnessed voodoo traditions.

The Woodbine Twiner

Community Sixth Annual Mark Glackin Twin Bing Open held July 16

Participants of the Sixth Annual Mark Glackin Twin Bing Open paused just long enough for a photo prior to heading out to the holes. Money raised at the golf outing is used to award scholarships to qualifying Woodbine Community School students each spring. Photo: Nikki Davis NIKKI DAVIS Editor The Sixth Annual Mark Glackin Twin Bing Open was held July 16 at Shadow Valley Golf Course in Woodbine. This year 21 teams, 84 individuals, participated in the 2011 open, raising a total of $3,400 to be used for the Mark Glackin Scholarship Award, handed out each spring to a Woodbine

Community School student. Each hole was sponsored by area businesses or individuals, including: the Glackin Family, Eby Drug, Millard Oaks Dental, Stephany & Coe Insurance, Tony and Terri Lauters Family, Fouts Funeral Home, Boustead Real Estate, Sergeant Bluff Pharmacy, Edward Jones and Palmer Candy. Several prizes were awarded throughout the

day and each individual left with a door prize. A few larger, raffle items, included an electric grill donated by the Harrison County REC and a rescue wood and putter donated by the Mark Glackin Memorial Committee. While only a few offered raffle items, it took several other businesses and families contributions to make the event successful, including: Golf Galaxy, Palmer

Candy, Horizon Equipment, The Hair Zone, Paul and Beth Fouts and family, Stephany & Coe Insurance, Randy Pryor Real Estate, Brickstreet Station, Harrison County REC, Farmer’s Trust and Savings Bank, Farm Bureau Services, Lynne and Tom Reid, Jerry Bertrand, Alice Glackin, Thomas and Cheryl Bies, Tim and Kellie Peterson, Darrell Hansen,

Thomsen Chiropractic, Austad’s, Iowa Western Community College, Doug and Heidi Lauters, Something Unique, Bank of the West, Wal-Mart, Sergeant Bluff Pharmacy, Shadow Valley Golf Course, Paige Hackman, Ali Glackin, Just a Print Promotion, Millard Oaks Dental and Just Do It. Before the event began, Mark Glackin’s daughter, Jodi, opened with a toast in remem-

berance of father. “Despite the heat, everyone had a good time. I can’t thank the volunteers, Colette, Tracy and Lauren Dubas along with Lisa Hackman and all of my family members, enough,” the late Mark Glackin’s wife, Lynne Glackin, said. “To date, we’ve been able to offer $5,000 worth of scholarships in Mark’s memory.

Disaster loans available Ospreys showing up in Iowa Small, non-farm businesses in Harrison and 13 other Iowa counties and neighboring counties in Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota are now eligible to apply for low interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. “These loans offset economic losses because of reduced revenues caused by flooding beginning May 23,” Director of SBA’s Disaster Field Operations Center-West Alfred Judd said. Primary counties include: Harrison, Fremont, Mills, Monona, Pottawattamie and Woodbury. Neighboring Iowa counties: Cass, Cherokee, Crawford, Ida, Montgomery, Page, Plymouth and Shelby. “SBA eligibility covers both the economic impacts on businesses dependent on farmers and ranchers that have suffered agricultural production losses caused by the disaster and businesses directly impacted by the disaster,” Judd said. Small, non-farm businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in agricultural and most private, non-profit organizations

of any size may qualify for Economic Disaster Loans of up to $2 million to help meet financial obligations and operating expenses that could have been met had the disaster not occurred. “Eligibility for these loans is based on the financial impact of the disaster only and not on any actual property damage. These loans have an interest rate of 4 percent for businesses and 3 percent for private, non-profit organizations, a maximum term of 30 years and are available to small businesses and most private, non profits without the financial ability to offset the adverse impact without hardship,” Judd said. Businesses primarily engaged in farming or ranching are not eligible for SBA disaster assistance. Agricultural enterprises should contact the Farm Services Agency about the USDA assistance made available by the Secretary’s declaration. Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application via SBA’s secure website at or call 800-659-2955. The deadline to apply for loans is March 8, 2012.

Seventeen ospreys were relocated from Wisconsin and Minnesota to four sites in Iowa. Sites receiving ospreys this year are White Rock Conservancy, near Coon Rapids, Mud Lake, near Dubuque, Spirit Lake and at the Annett Nature Center south of Indianola. The Dubuque and Warren County conservation board staff are providing Webcams that will be up and running soon at 203/default.aspx and at . There have also been 16 additional osprey pairs reported around

Iowa this year. “This year wild nesting osprey pairs will fledge more young than we relocate to Iowa and that is a great story,” wildlife diversity technician with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Pat Schlarbaum said. Osprey partners have reported three nesting pairs around Coralville Reservoir, four pairs in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area, three pairs in Polk County including one pair at Polk City Refuge with a male that has a distinctive green USFWS band indicating it is an Iowa produced survivor that has matured to adult, nesting status. There is a nesting pair at Don Williams Lake, two nesting pairs in Linn County including one

pair at the Duane Arnold Energy Plant and a second pair near Palo. There is a nesting pair at Spirit Lake two nesting pairs again this year near Sergeant Bluff along the Missouri River. The Iowa DNR worked with staff from Allete Energy, Duluth Minn., to gather Minnesota ospreys and with the Wisconsin DNR gather Wisconsin ospreys.
