Summer has come and gone and it’s time to start thinking about going back to school. While parents might be rejoicing while their students might not be, the Woodbine Community School District and Horizons Committee have joined forces to help ease the transition from summer fun to back to school with the third annual Horizons Community Fair and Back-To-School Open House to be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Aug. 16 at the school.

The event though, is not just for parents, teachers and students – it’s for everyone. “I urge everyone to go,” Horizons Steering Committee Member Lois Surber said. “It’s always a lot of fun and it gives everyone the opportunity to learn what our community offers. They can take time to check out community organizations’ tables and talk with members to find out what their groups are all about.” One table that will be set up includes a brain- At the 2010-11 Community Fair and Back to School Open House, Jill Royer, storming idea from Madison Thomas and Layne Thomas were caught enjoying free ice cream.

NIKKI DAVIS Editor After securing an $18 million FEMA grant to help recondition and strengthen poles and lines weakened by the 2009 and 2010 snow and ice storms, the Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative is now facing additional, unexpected expenses after copper thieves helped themselves to the REC’s new copper line. The REC services all rural areas of Harrison County as well as rural areas for four, surrounding communities. FEMA agreed to pay for 75 percent o f

the reconditioning and the State of Iowa reimburses 10 percent of the cost, leaving the REC to absorb the remaining 15 percent. So what was already going to amount to a hefty price tag, became a little higher after recent thefts of the newly placed copper wire on the poles occurred. “The work is all being done in three phases, and we’re only in the first phase,” HCREC Manager F. Joe Farley said. “We’re installing new, bigger poles with heavier conductors and shorter spans between the poles so they can withhold ice weight and wind more.” Recently, when going to inspect the progress of phase one, a horrible realization was reached. “While inspecting and reviewing the construction work, it

was discovered we had some theft going on,” Farley said. “Copper is pretty valuable right now and attractive to thieves. They literally stripped it right from the poles.” A total of 26 poles were stripped and damaged in recent thefts – and the HCREC is left holding the bill. “There were 26 poles that were hit and, with labor, truck charges, equipment, supplies and more, the cost is around $150 minimum to repair and replace,” HCREC Director of Operations Dave Stevens said.

In an essay Melanie Pryor submitted to the Iowa State Fair’s ‘The Way We Live’ contest, she expresses the hard work, love and humor that go in to running a third-generation familyowned farm. The truth behind those words in that essay is what made the Pryor family one of six recipients of The Way We Live Award in 2011, much to their surprise. “I saw a press release in The Twiner for it, and my mother-in-law, Cindy, saw it to,” Melanie said. “We decided we needed to submit something. I mean, why not?” That was in 2009. Not long after submitting her essay, “The Way We Live,” the Pryor family received a rejection letter of sorts, stating they were not the recipient of the award, but the essay would remain on file for two years. “Most of the stories they receive are tragic in some way. Ours isn’t. We are truly blessed,” Melanie said. “So I get why we wouldn’t have been chosen. We’re just blessed.” Her essay explains See PRYORS Page 6

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


Summer is drawing to a close Summer is drawing to a close and the new school year will begin for students on Wed., Aug. 17. Registration for the upcoming school year will be on Aug. 5 and 9. Please mark Aug. 16 as the date for the school’s Open House when students can meet their teachers and visit their classrooms. The custodial staff has been busy preparing the building for another year of learning. Their time and efforts are greatly appreciated as the facility looks great! I know you will join me in welcoming the new staff members to the Woodbine School District: • Deborah Barry – Kindergarten • Kyle Bartels – Fifth grade • Emily Bracker – Half time pre-school teacher • Ryan Coenen – High school math • Theresa McKee – Art/Middle school language arts • Tom Schafer – Technology coordinator • Sam Swenson – Middle school/high school principal and activities director We are excited about these individuals joining our team for the upcoming school year. Student achievement continues to be our top priority for the school district. Our focus for staff development this year will be on reading and math. Also, we will continue work with the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program and the Iowa Core Curriculum. Another point of emphasis this year will be improvement in the district’s Gifted and Talented Program. Several facility improvements have been done over the summer using PPEL Fund dollars approved by the voters last fall. We have made repairs to the bus-loading area north of the school and improved access to the building with new sidewalks on the east side of the gymnasium. We also have new lighting in the weight/wrestling room. In addition, we will be receiving a new, 65-passenger bus to be used on the regular route at the end of August. Please do not hesitate to call me at school (6472411) or home (647-6057) if you have a question or concern. The superintendent’s position is shared with Boyer Valley and I am at the Woodbine office all day on Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I am at Woodbine in the afternoon. If you have any questions, please call the school office. I also invite and encourage you to visit our school, meet our staff and stop by the office for a visit. We welcome your continued involvement with the school. I know everyone has a shared vision of quality education for the students of Woodbine. Let’s work together again to make the 2011-2012 school year a tremendous success!

Where to stay to lose the weight


t wasn’t just the baby weight I’ve been trying to lose. Oh, no. It was about 12 years of eating fried everything in lard, fast food and laying around on the couch. But now … I’m on a mission. I can’t tell you to date how much, exactly, I lost. I can tell you that right before I got pregnant, I was working towards a weight loss goal. Then … well … I got pregnant. I continued to exercise in the early months, but it wasn’t an easy pregnancy. Then came that preeclampsia thing. My doc noticed the steady trend of water weight and my blood pressure rising. (I tried to tell him that was because I had a stressful job – but he didn’t listen.) Sitting there at a regular checkup, I was detained. They wouldn’t let me leave. Then they came in and said it was off to the hospital with me and, no I couldn’t go home. That was followed by about two months or so of bed rest. Then my little princess was born … or as she was lovingly called while I was pregnant, my little “Catfish.” Then I was so tired, I just didn’t have the energy to exercise … and I was still eating like I was pregnant. The two months of bed rest and total pregnancy packed on around 60 pounds. Yup. You just read that right. And normal weight gain, I think I remember them saying, is 20-30 pounds. Then I was just disgusted. My face was just round. I was getting out of breath walking up the stairs and I just kept thinking, “What happened to me?” I know your metabolism changes as you age … but really? Me? Out of breath walking up the stairs? I used to run miles in gymnastics. I was up to a mile and a half before I got pregnant. I used to jump and practice with my cheerleaders. And now …. Grrrrrrrr. Then I got the job at Artistic Academy, a gymnastics center, in Council Bluffs. I found myself surrounded by bean-pole gymnasts that I remembered I once was. And I watched them. And I remembered all that stuff I had to do when I was in gymnastics. No fast food. One hour or more a day of conditioning, alternating endurance and muscle building, each day of practice, four days a week. If we were caught eating French fries, the entire team was “awarded” additional conditioning. And these girls conditioned – just as I used to. So … why not? I just plopped down with them one day and started in. I think they got a kick out of watching me try to keep up – and they were quite tolerant when I couldn’t hit the same numbers as them. (Although I took some ribbing for it!) Then I started to play on the equipment. (Yes. I had to sign a waiver saying I wouldn’t sue anyone if I broke my neck! A 30+ on a balance beam or uneven bars is a scary thought…) And I forgot how good gymnastics


worked every muscle. Sometimes I woke up so sore the next morning, I found it hard to even get out of bed. And … it felt good. Then … I began not eating what my husband cooked for dinner. He’s a great chef … unfortunately for me. And it wasn’t healthy meals. Hardly ever. So I started just eating before he was back at the house. Salad. Yogurt. Sandwiches. Fruit. And … it felt good. Then, about three months ago, we were “evacuated” by the “eminent flood” that never reached Modale. I stopped working at the gym because it took me about an hour and 45 minutes to drive to work for two and a half and then back here took another hour and 45. The numbers didn’t add up. But … Woodbine really is beautiful. So … I fell into a new routine. I began to jog. I began to eat healthier. I began doing reps in the living room – planks, pushups, handstand holds, V-ups, around the worlds … And I love it. I love jogging. I love the high I get when I get back. Sometimes, if I run too hard, I can feel my teeth tingle when I get back. (Of course that generally means I’m going to be in pain the next morning, too …) And, I think I tallied the total weight loss since around January/February as approximately 35-40 pounds. Sorry, folks. I don’t own a scale, so I don’t have precise numbers … and I don’t care. I feel so much better. So much happier. So … now I’m faced with reality once again as our three-month rental agreement at the house here in Woodbine is up at the end of the month. I’ve got great two and three mile routes mapped out here in town. I love the space in the living room to exercise. I just like it … here. (And exercising isn’t the only reason – but the focus of this column.) Returning to Modale means I can go back to my girls – back to the gym. Staying here means having a great support group surrounding me and people cheering me on and access to things like water aerobics. So … what’s a girl to do with an upside down mortgage and a 2 year old? As the song goes … “Should I stay or should I go now?” And the sad thing is … I have no idea …. (So … to be continued in another column in the future …)

August lawn renovations


t has been too darned hot! As you drive around now you notice that lawns have slowed in growth and in many places are losing color. Accordingly, some people are concerned with what is wrong with their lawns. Anytime we deal with growing organisms, the real art comes from figuring out what is normal and what is abnormal. Then the abnormal things can be examined so that appropriate measures taken to make them normal again. For lawns, begin with understanding the plants you are growing. Many of the grass species you are growing, especially Kentucky bluegrass, are cool-season plants. Cool-season plants really flourish in cool, relatively wet times of the year, and are dormant in the winter and again become dormant in the heat of summer. The summer dormancy is simply a clever, natural strategy to avoid stress by shutting down during times of high water demand. So when bluegrass lawns turn brownish in the summer,

it is often just evidence of the plant’s internal self-protection mechanism. Remember if you try to keep the lawn green artificially by intense watering or summer fertilization, you are often just adding stress. And stressed plants are more easily colonized by damaging insects or diseases. As long as dormancy is not longer than about six weeks, come fall, the bluegrass should awaken and take off again. But what about those lawns where stands are weak or missing? One indicator of weak stands is to look for crabgrass and other annoying weed patches. Remember that in nature, poorly vegetated to bare spots are rapidly covered with annual plants that are available. In a mowed environment like a lawn, great candidates are annuals like crabgrass or knotgrass. Their presence is more an indicator of a weak stand of turf grasses. A key time is upon us now. The period from mid August to late September is the best time to establish lawn

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator from seed. Seedlings established now will have two mini growing seasons (fall and then spring) before they have to endure the stress of summer. If you have areas that are over 60 percent live turf grasses, overseeding may be best. Less than 60 percent live grass and usually you will be better off to kill the existing turf and reseed from scratch. Overseeding involves thoroughly raking the area to remove thatch and then scatter seed over the existing remaining turf. Then, water the area well to start germination. As the season cools, the grass should quickly establish. Lawntypes of perennial ryegrass may be included to provide rapid establishment particularly in spring seedings, but for fall plantings (now), a mixture of three or four bluegrass varieties is

probably best. Plan on seeding about 1 to 1.5 pounds of bluegrass seed per 1,000 square feet of area for new seedings, and around a pound per 1,000 for overseeding. Split the seed into two parts and plant one half in one direction and the other at 90 degree angle to help with uniformity. Starter fertilizer can be applied according to label directions, or farm grade materials like 1846-0 can be used so that 1 to 1.5 pounds of actual N is applied per 1,000 square feet. Finally, don’t mow too short! Ideally, Kentucky bluegrass should be cut at 2 to 2.5 inches height. Be especially careful to mow new lawns before they get excessively long.

Reminder of Farm Leasing Breezy to host ‘Harvest Parties’ Meeting on Aug. 19 According to the Cash Rental Rates for Iowa 2011 Survey, the average cash rental rate in Harrison County has increased 59 percent from 2006 to 2011, or $140 per acre to $222 per acre. Iowa State University Extension conducts the survey and supplies the results yearly. Cash rental rates have risen as profitability has increased for corn and soybean farmers. Both landlords and tenants are asking questions about the changes in rental rates. Harrison County Extension will be sponsoring a Farm Leasing Arrangements meeting from 10-11:30 a.m. Aug. 19 at the ISU Extension office in Logan, 304 E. Seventh St. ISU Extension Field Agricultural Economist Tim Eggers will be the presenter. Eggers will be explaining land value trends, cash rental rate trends, how to calculate a fair cash rental rate and how property taxes on ag land are determined. The Farm Leasing Arrangements

meeting costs $15 per person, which includes the 100-page Farm Leasing Arrangement booklet. Pre-registration is required by Aug. 17. To pre-register, call the Harrison County Extension office at (712) 644-2105 or toll free at (888) 644-2105. There is also a leasing meeting scheduled for Aug. 24 in Page County at the Bricker Room, 400 W.

It’s the time of year in which the public is invited to call in Harvest Party reservations. Tentative dates for the Harvest Parties are each Saturday from Aug. 13 through Sept. 10, or possibly Sept. 17. Each Harvest Party will begin with a light breakfast at 6:30 a.m., followed by a short picking lesson. Pickers are then loaded onto hayracks and head to the vineyard around 7-7:30 a.m. to begin picking. When the varietal of the day has been harvested, pickers will have the opportunity to watch Breezy owners and employees process the grapes and the opportunity to stomp some grapes, too. Each picker receives a free, commemorative T-shirt

and free lunch with wine of choice for picking the grapes. While the event is often used by various organizations such as card clubs, businesses, church groups and even families, there are limitations on children’s involvement.

Community ‘Welcome Home, Hometown Heroes’

Woodbine’s hometown heroes attending the welcome home event arrived in fine style on the Woodbine Fire Department’s rig. Pictured left to right are Rob Neligh, Gary Duysen, Jon Shaffer and Josh Malone. Photo: Bracinda Blum State Senator Jim Seymour served as one of the guest speakers at the event. Other speakers included Donna Barry representing State Senator Chuck Grassley, Woodbine Mayor Bill Hutcheson and United Methodist Church Pastor Samuel Subramanian who delivered the invocation, with Nancy Foutch serving as the mistress of ceremonies.

American Legion Auxiliary member Rozella Baker welcomed home the Woodbine soldiers. She’s pictured here shaking hands with Josh Malone. Aside from the four, local soldiers attending the ceremony, several other were also mentioned and thanked for their service to their community and country including Mike Sutton (Army National Guard), Meghan Hardy (Army National Guard), Rob Shafer (Army National Guard), Andrew Cohrs (Army National Guard), Nate Johnson (Army National Guard), Matt Lowther (Army National Guard), Bryan Jablonski (U.S. Army) and Kyle Outhouse (U.S. Airforce). The American Legion Auxiliary supplied refreshments following the event and the soldiers were also offered a free swim day at the Woodbine Municipal Swimming Pool as an additional way to welcome the soldiers home from over seas.

Sgt. First Class Michael Colwell introduced the soldiers attending the event. He is pictured here welcoming back Gary Duyson. Colwell is a Woodbine graduate and has been a member of the Army National Guard since 1992. Since then, he has had three deployments to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Call before you dig

Welcoming back Rod Black Rod Black Behavioral Licensed Independent Social Worker at Community Memorial Hospital was recently welcomed back to work at the Barnes Wellness Center by CMH coworkers. Black, a member of the Bravo Company, Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 2nd Brigade of the 34th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, returned home on July 14. He had been deployed to Bagram Airfield in Parwan Province, Afghanistan since Aug. 6, 2010. Black said the most difficult part about being gone was being away from family and leaving a job that he loves, to something not quite as enjoyable. Black said the comforting routine of work and family life in Iowa (except the humidity) was a great part about returning home, especially now as he enjoys the varied change of seasons.

With Aug. 11 almost here, Iowa One Call hopes this date on the calendar, 8/11, will serve as a natural reminder for Iowa residents to call 811 prior to any digging project in order to have underground utility lines marked. This comes on the heels of a recent effort by the Iowa Attorney General to step up enforcement of the law requiring excavators to contact Iowa One Call 48 hours before excavation. When calling 811, homeowners are connected to Iowa One Call, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags or spray paint. Emphasizing the importance of keeping Iowans safe at home and in the workplace, in 2010 the Iowa Attorney General filed 13 new enforcement actions in 11 Iowa counties resulting in assessed civil penalties totaling more than $47,000. The depth of utility lines can vary for a number of reasons, such as erosion, previous digging projects and uneven surfaces. Utility lines need to be properly marked because even when digging only a few inches, the risk of striking an underground utility line still exists. Visit or for more information about 811 and the call-beforeyou-dig process.

CORRECTION: In the Aug. 3 edition of The Twiner, the cut line for the “Welcome Home, Hometown Heroes,” had several errors, including the name spellings and wrong names for returning soldiers attending the ceremony. The four soldiers attending the ceremony included, from left to right, Josh Malone (Army National Guard), Jon Shaffer (not John) (Army National Guard), Rob Neligh (not Neiligh) (Army National Guard) and Gary Duysen (not Dixon) (Army National Guard).

From SCHOOL Page 1 Member and Woodbine High School Teacher Teresa Smith. For the second year, she will be hosting a “Take It … Or Leave It Garden Bounty Table.” The table is meant for those who have an excess of garden vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes or zucchini. The vegetables may be brought in and left for anyone to pick up or trade with what’s on the table that might not have been in their own garden. “I was thinking of all the produce people try to give away and I thought this would be a good way for people to get rid of their excess and for those without gardens to enjoy it. No one has to be embarrassed, it’s just an abundance and anyone can take it. I hope people bring in their items,” Smith said. Smith asked if donors have garden goodies they’re looking to leave

at the table to call her at 647-3267 as she can make arrangements for pickup if garden growers are unable to attend. As parents, grandparents, students and community members learn about the plethora of organizations in Woodbine, they may begin their evening by enjoying a meal of sloppy Joes or hot dogs, chips, baked beans, a dessert and lemonade or water hosted by the Woodbine TeamMates Mentoring Program at a free will offering beginning at 5:30 p.m. “This is a change from last year,” Woodbine Elementary Principal Kathy Waite said. “And all the proceeds go to help the TeamMates Mentoring Program.” Teachers will open the classrooms themselves for perusal from 6:307:30 p.m. so students and parents and/or guardians and relatives may view their learning

environment for the 2011-12 school year and meet their teacher(s). At 7 p.m., there will also be a Woodbine Middle School/New Student (grades seven through 12) Orientation in the high school gymnasium. Aside from the Community Fair, open classrooms, orientation and TeamMates dinner, there will be raffle drawings throughout the evening, school tours, and, a popular favorite, free ice cream donated by a Community United for a Better School, or CUBS. Ice cream will be served following classroom visits and will be available until gone. If anyone has questions regarding the upcoming Horizons Community Fair and Back-To-School Open House, they may contact the Woodbine Elementary School at 647-2440 or the Woodbine High School at 647-2227.

Pryor family shares ‘The Way We Live’ at Iowa State Fair From PRYORS Page 1 how they are blessed with excerpts such as, “We are a family committed to keeping the dream of the family farm alive,” and, “We enjoy taking our kids on rides on our Mule, a 4wheeled vehicle that holds car seats, so we can check cattle and watch what is happening on the farm each day.” At the time of the essay, several car seats were needed for the then 2-year old Pryor triplets, Jax, Brody and Katy – not to mention older brothers Layne, 6 at the time, and Wyatt, then 7. The essay describes the daily and yearly toils of family farm life in Woodbine, from chores for the children to showing cattle to what the children are exposed to and learn from continuously. “The kids experience life and death at a very young age. Layne witnessed a C-section on one of the cows this spring, which he talked about for days. The lessons you learn on the farm are some of life’s most valuable,” the essay reads. “Every year a new challenge is brought and change is always expected.” Melanie even joked, “The term ‘Harvest widow,’ there’s a lot of truth to that. You are basically a single parent

those times of the year.” But they love the life – and are teaching that love to their children. “Jax is an animal lover … probably too much. We’ve had a few episodes there. Brody is all about the logistics. He’s constantly making sure the gates are closed and the lights are off and the water tanks are full. And Katy loves it as much as the boys. She just loves to go with her daddy and ride the fourwheeler and check the cows. She loves to be outside,” Melanie said of the couple’s triplets. “Layne and Wyatt love the cattle side. Layne loves showing cattle and we have to hold him back sometimes because he wants to do so much. It’s all definitely growing on Wyatt. He doesn’t like the work side of it, but he sure likes the show side of it.” And Adam, Melanie – and pretty much the rest of the Woodbine community – sometime get to experience the humor in their life. “One day the teacher was discussing that it takes a mommy cow and a daddy to make a baby and Layne said, ‘Not at our house. We just AI (artificially inseminate)! Needless to say the teacher quickly changed the subject,” the essay read. The family lives just

half a mile from Adam’s parents with whom they farm, and it’s the coworking that allows the Pryors’ dream of family farming to stay a reality – now, and hopefully in the future. “We grew up in farm families. I wasn’t raised on a farm, but my parents were and I grew up in Woodbine so have always been exposed to agriculture. And Adam was born and raised on the farm and he loves it. We hope that maybe someday one of our children will take on what we have built and worked so hard for, and continue the Pryor family farm,” Melanie said. They recognize the difficulties family farm life brings, but the Pryors believe it’s “definitely the most rewarding.” The Way We Live Iowa State Fair affiliates believe the same things and offer recognition to industrious Iowa families who demonstrate a daily dedication to animal agriculture and exemplify farm values derived from hard work and a love for the occupation of farming. Now the Pryor family will have to take a few days away from the farm life they love in order to celebrate the life they love, because two years after sending in their essay, they were notified

Adam and Melanie Pryor, with their five children, Layne, Wyatt, Brody, Jax and Katy. Photo: Submitted in May they were being honored as recipients of The Way We Live Award. “It really caught me off guard,” Melanie said. “Right around graduation they just called and said, ‘You’ve been selected.’ Now we’re looking forward to checking out the butter cow, the biggest bull and the biggest pig, the cattle show … and the food!” As recipients of the

award, the Pryor family received admission for the family to the Iowa State Fair and $250 cash spending money. They will be honored in an award ceremony at 1 p.m. Aug. 15 at the Christensen Farms Stage in the Paul R. Knapp Animal Learning Center. “It’s neat. We’ll actually be the exhibit for two days at the family farm exhibit. I think

we’re on Sunday and Monday. They’ll have a slide show and pictures and our essay shown on a side,” Melanie said. “And, we’ll be able to celebrate Wyatt’s 10th birthday while we’re there. It will just be fun.” For more information on The Way We Live Award, including photos and information on the Pryor family, visit

Harr. Co. REC Crimping County Copper thieves

The copper thieves in Harrison County are causing damage to brand new poles recently installed this year thanks to grant funding through FEMA. Photo: Submitted

From THIEVES Page 1 much, the expenses add up quickly, plus tack on additional time to finishing even the first phase of the three of the reconditioning project. And the HCREC is not taking the thefts lightly. “We’ve hired some local policemen to patrol our lines in their off duty hours. We’ve also contacted several salvage yards to alert them to the thefts,” Farley said. “And we’ve been looking into other options for the future, such as copper-clad material, which performs the same but is a steel line with just a little copper coating so the salvage value is next to nothing.” The HCREC is also asking the public for their help in catching the thief or thieves. HCREC is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any

person or persons found tampering with, vandalizing or stealing the copper wire or other materials from the distribution utility poles and other facilities. If anyone has information, the HCREC is asking them to step up by contacting their office at 647-2727, or (800) 8225591 or the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office at (712) 644-2244. “The REC is calling on all of their members for help,” Stevens said. “ U n f o r t u n a t e l y, FEMA, while we’re grateful for their help, won’t cover the damages to the new poles. We want to alert residents that if they see anything suspicious to call local authorities or the REC. We’re obligated to pay for these damages which may fall back on our members … which are our consumers. And we’re not only concerned about the cost,

but the safety of the individuals involved as well as the general public. That is one of our para-

mount practices – safety of the public. We encourage anyone with information to let us know.”

Community 2011 4-H Apple Pie and Muffin Auction Results Ninety-two Harrison County 4-H'ers participated in the 2011 4-H Apple Pie/Muffin Baking Contest on July 22 at Boyer Valley Community School in Dunlap. The pies and muffins were judged and auctioned at the Harrison County Fair July 23. Harrison County 4 H supporters gathered in the heat to help raise $12,450 for Harrison County 4-H program fees, event scholarships and other activities. This is the only county-wide 4-H fund raiser each year. Harrison County Extension Youth Coordinator Dee Colwell explained the state 4 H office requires a program development fee to be paid for each youth who is a part of the 4-H program. Harrison County Extension pays a portion of these fees and the 4-H member is responsible for paying the other portion themselves. A large percentage of the pie and muffin auction funds are used to support these required state fees. Money raised at this auction is also used for scholarships for 4-H activities, "camperships" for regional and state camps, 4H’ers year around activity insurance, educational materials, awards at the annual 4-H meeting and other programs for Harrison County youth. This past year, local 4H'ers received financial aid that enabled them to attend such activities as the Regional Junior 4-H Camp, State Youth and 4H Conference and several state 4-H camps. Many other local 4-H activities, such as 4-H club officer training, “Fish Iowa” day camp and Movie Day were able to be offered at no or low cost to participants due to the generosity of the bidders at the auction. Rex and Craig Gochenour of Gochenour Auctioneering, Missouri Valley, were the auctioneers for this event. Deb Gochenour and Carole Gorham clerked the auction. Gochenour Auctioneering once again

generously donated their time and talent to this event. After Colwell’s traditional presentation of rolling pins and muffin pans to the graduating seniors, the auction commenced. The grand champion pie was baked by Harrison County Fair Princess, Emily Dickinson of Logan and purchased by (Grandpa) Don Dickinson of Logan for $520. Reserve grand champion pie was baked by the team of Holly Brock and Lexie Seuntjens both of Dunlap. Community Bank purchased the pie for $600. Honorable mention recognition was given to the following pie bakers: Fair Princess Jessy Gochenour, Mondamin, purchased by Bob & Judy Gochenour of Logan for $630; Emilee Earlywine, Mondamin, purchased by Matt Earlywine, Mondamin, Mycogen Seeds for $400; and Alex Knauss of Logan, purchased by Gochenour Drain Tiling, Mondamin for $200. This year the judges awarded co-grand champion awards to muffins baked by two different teams: Skylyr Wohlers and Ethan Rife, both of Mondamin and Sydney Sherer of Pisgah and Kasey Lewis of Little Sioux. Wohler’s and Rife’s muffins were purchased by the Wohlers family for $500 and Mary Ann Lewis, Mondamin, purchased Sherer and Lewis’ for $725. This batch of muffins was then re-auctioned and was purchased by Rose Vista Home and grandparents for $260. The reserve champion muffins were baked by Sydney Hirst of Modale, purchased for $240 by Ellis Hirst, Soldier Creek Farms, Modale.

The Woodbine Twiner

Community Woodmen of the World thanks volunteer coaches

Correction In the article “Hodges promoted to Navy Captain” that ran on page five of the Aug. 3 edition of The Woodbine Twiner, in the second paragraph, Alisa Kohl Hodges graduated from the Jennie Edumdson School of Nursing in 1986, not 1996 as previously printed.

State of Iowa’s excellent credit rating affirmed

Woodmen of the World Lodge 647 in Iowa honored some of the volunteer coaches for the soccer, girls softball and boys baseball teams. A dinner was recently held at the United Methodist Church in their honor. Pictured here are the coaches that attended, front row, left to right, Kim Armstrong (girls softball), Karen Ryerson (soccer and girls softball), Chelle Butrick (girls softball) and Jim Lenz (boys baseball). Back row, Bob Hessman (soccer), Troy Vogel (soccer), Jeremy Butrick (girls softball) and Pete Ryerson (soccer). Special guests at the event included Area Manager for Woodmen of the World Tracy Johnsen and Outreach Coordinator for Woodmen of the World Jennifer Kriefels. Photo: Submitted

State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald announced that once again the state of Iowa has maintained the highest credit rating possible. “Fitch Ratings affirmed that Iowa is a Triple A state,” Fitzgerald said. “Additionally, they upgraded Iowa’s school infrastructure and Vision Iowa fund bonds to AA from AA-.” According to Fitch’s report, “The state has a careful and conservative

approach to financial operations and has consistently achieved budgetary balance and maintenance of sizeable reserves despite revenue declines associated with the recent downturn.” “The experts say that Iowa is among the elite states,” Fitzgerald said. “They continue to recognize the first-rate fiscal management and strong economy of our state and we can stand out as a model to other states.”

Heading to the Iowa State Fair Beth Magill to be inducted to 4-H Hall of Fame State Fair ‘Communication’ Beth Magill will be the 2011 Harrison County inductee into the Iowa 4H Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Iowa State Fair on Aug. 21. Iowa counties have selected inductees for their outstanding service and dedication to 4-H. Inductees or their surviving family members will be presented a certificate by the Iowa 4-H Foundation as they are introduced on stage. Beth’s family will be recognized on Beth’s behalf at 1:30 p.m. A reception will follow the presentations. Beth (Allen) Magill was a 10-year member of the Loveland Angels (Missouri Valley) 4-H Club in Harrison County. She loved participating in communications at the county fair and her skills usually advanced her to the Iowa State Fair. Beth also enjoyed showing cats and also presented county workshops on cats. Beth founded the Missouri Valley Clovers 4-H Club when her first child was old enough to join 4-H. All her club members were required to do communications, which was quite a challenge for most of the youth. With her help,

most of her 4-H’ers qualified and participated at the Iowa State Fair. Beth was always there with words of encouragement for her 4-H’ers. Beth was so proud of them and their accomplishments. After graduating from Missouri Valley High School, Beth attended Iowa Western Community College where she earned her associate’s degree. Beth’s true calling was working with children with special needs. She operated a daycare for special-needs youth for many years until she became a para-professional at Rue Elementary School (Council Bluffs) where she continued to work with special needs youth! While continuing to work full-time at Rue, Beth made the decision to return to school. She was attending Buena Vista University and was in the last year of earning her degree in education. At the end of May 2010, Beth was diagnosed with cancer, but that didn’t stop her or her club. Chemotherapy sessions were scheduled around the 4-H events. Beth even made it to the county fair every day to watch her “kids.” Her dedication and talents led to all the other club leaders and youth in the

county to look up to Beth. In fact, as her health declined, they all pooled together to make sure Beth’s club had everything they needed and helped in so many ways. In August 2010, Beth even traveled to the Iowa State Fair to watch three of her club members participate in communication events. This last year, the Missouri Valley Clovers joined with our other Missouri Valley club, the Missouri Valley Dazzlers, because Beth was not physically able to do all the things required of a leader. Beth was given her 10year 4-H leader pin and told about her selection to the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame while in the hospital; it meant the world to her. On May 5, 2011, all of us in the 4-H family lost Beth to cancer. She is now one of our angels that take care of Harrison County 4-H and watches over the Harrison County Fair – her second home. Everyone will miss Beth’s smiles and infectious laughter. We love you Beth! “Harrison County is very proud to have had Beth Magill as part of our 4-H family,” Harrison County Extension Youth

Coordinator Dee Colwell said. Counties select inductees for their exceptional work in contributing to the lives of 4-H members and the overall 4-H program. Many inductees served as club leaders, youth mentors, fair superintendents or fair board members, Iowa State University Extension county council members, county youth council members, fair judges, financial supporters, chaperones or ISU Extension staff members. The inductees have demonstrated dedication, encouragement, commitment and guidance to Iowa’s 4-H’ers through the years. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the counties and state to recognize and celebrate 4-H volunteers and staff who have shown outstanding service and dedication to Iowa’s 4-H program,” Director of ISU Extension 4-H Youth Development Chuck Morris said. The Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame was initiated in 2002 to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of 4-H. A summary of all previous honorees will be on display at the 2011 Iowa State Fair in the 4-H Exhibits Building.

Pasture DeSoto and Boyer Chute flood updates Improvement Walk to be held Aug. 24 Cattle producers and others with interest in pasture management are invited to a pasture walk at 6 p.m. Aug. 24 at the Merle and Greg Christiansen farm north and west of Beebeetown. The pasture is located two miles north and 2.5 miles west of Beebeetown on 315th Street. From Logan, take Overton Road south five miles and continue another mile south on Ozark. Turn right on 315th and continue another 1.5 miles to the site.

Despite flooding, work continues at DeSoto and Boyer Chute National Wildlife Refuges. Refuge staff are working to improve capacity and efficiency in facility maintenance equipment and operations so an effective clean up can occur when floodwaters recede. Refuge wildlife managers continue to assess and plan for effective management of wildlife resources including the upcoming fall migration. Contingency plans are being made for fall visitor services. This includes working with the Blair Community School district to continue the curriculum based environmental education programs where more than 4,200 students visited the refuges last school year. DeSoto and Boyer Chute National Wildlife Refuges continue to be more than 90 percent

inundated with Missouri River flood waters. Many refuges roads are under water. The DeSoto Visitor Center is not flooded but is surrounded by floodwaters and only accessible by boat. The headquarters complex at DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge located near the north entrance of the refuge along U.S. Highway 30 has remained dry and functional. While there will be much work to do once the floodwaters recede, the refuge is committed to completing repairs in a safe and quick manner. Although it may take many months to make repairs, the refuge intends to reopen to the public as soon as possible. Attached is a document with a more information on the flooding conditions at both refuges including before and during the flood aer-

ial photographs. Check the Website, w w w. f w s . g o v / m i d west/desoto/, for updates on closures and other refuge activities.

Flood damaged crops, insurance payments and lease contracts Some Iowa corn and soybean producers are facing substantial, if not complete, crop losses due to flooding. In particular, many acres of crops in the Missouri River Valley have been under water for a month or more this year. Fortunately, nearly 90 percent of Iowa’s corn and soybean acres are protected by multiple peril crop insurance. Crop Insurance Most Iowa producers purchase crop insurance policies with a 75 percent or 80 percent level of coverage. This means if crops are a total loss, the producer must stand the first 20 percent to 25 percent of the loss. However, in 2011 nearly 90 percent of the crop acres insured in Iowa were covered under Revenue Protection policies, which offer an increasing guarantee if prices increase between February and October. So far, this has added over a dollar per bushel to corn guarantees and about $.25 per bushel to soybean guarantees. Moreover, since Revenue Protection policies are settled at the average nearby futures price during the month of October, rather than local cash prices, farmers will receive a bonus equal to the fall grain basis in their area. Producers with crops that have been totally destroyed by flooding will not have to incur the variable costs of harvesting. This could save around $20 per acre for soybeans and perhaps $70 per acre for corn, depending on potential yields and drying costs. Nevertheless, even producers who carried insurance at an 80 percent coverage level could be looking at net revenues of at least $100 per acre that

obtained from normal yields this year. Potential Losses For example, assume an insured tract has an expected corn yield of 160 bushels per acre and an insurance proven yield of 150 bushels per acre. A normal crop marketed at $6.50 per bushel would bring $1,040 per acre. The insurance indemnity payment for an 80 percent RP guarantee, zero yield, and an October futures price of $7.00 would equal 150 bu. x $7.00 x 80 percent = $840. Saving $70 in harvest costs would give an equivalent of $910 per acre, or $130 below the value of a normal crop. For soybeans, assume both the expected yield and the proven yield are 50 bushels per acre, and the crop could be marketed at $13 per bushel. Gross income for a normal crop would be $650 per acre. The insurance payment for a complete crop failure and a $13.75 October futures price would be 50 bu. x $13.75 x 80 percent = $550. Savings of $20 in harvesting costs brings the equivalent of $570 per acre, or $80 below the value of a normal crop. In many cases, of course, flooded acres will make up only a portion of the insured unit, so production from nonflooded acres will be averaged in with the zero yields from the flooded acres. The real question is how much will it cost to clean up fields and bring them back into production next year? Iowa farmers have not had prior experience with fields being under water for extended periods of time, so effects are difficult to estimate. Problems will range from physically removing debris to level-

ing eroded areas to restoring fertility. Rental Contracts What do these questions imply for rental contracts? A great deal of uncertainty, for one thing. Lease agreements in Iowa continue in effect for another year under the same terms if they are not terminated on or before Sept. 1. Either an owner or a tenant can terminate a lease. Operators who rented flood covered land this year may want to think seriously about whether they want to rent those acres next year, especially at the same level of cash rent. Leases can be terminated by delivering a notice in person to the other party, sending it by certified mail, or (rarely) publishing it. Landowners will have to bear the burden of mitigating flood damages – that goes with owning property. But, a better solution may be for renters and owners to work together to repair the damage and bring the land back into production. Farm operators may have access to machinery that can help accomplish the job that owners do not. In return, tenants should be compensated for their efforts, either directly, through a significant discount on the 2012 rent, or with a long-term lease. Next Year In some cases there may be doubt as to whether land flooded this year can even be planted next year. Fortunately, such acres are still eligible for multiple peril crop insurance coverage in 2012, including prevented planting payments. Operators have the opportunity to increase the prevented planting coverage from 60 percent of their initial guarantee to 65 percent or 70 percent when they purchase their policies. They should also consider insuring flood damaged land as a separate unit to the extent possible. Finally, operators can request that their 2011 yield histories reflect a value equal to 60 per cent of the county “T-yield” rather than a zero or very low yield. Close communication and cooperation between owners and renters can be a “win-win” strategy in the long run, but recovery will likely take several years. For more information about managing flood damaged cropland go to the Iowa State University Website at overing-disasters. In addition, there will be a farm leasing meeting at 10 a.m. Aug. 19 at the Harrison County Extension office at 304 E. Seventh St. in Logan.
