SHORT Keeping the freedom of the written word TAKES Homecoming Information JERSEY AUCTION The annual Homecoming Jersey Auction will begin with the soup supper at 6:30 p.m. with auction to follow at 7 p.m. Sun., Oct. 2. The auction will include football, volleyball and cross country jerseys as well as homemade treats by the cheerleaders.

NIKKI DAVIS Editor Woodbine Public Youth Librarian Wendy Doyel doesn’t think the concept itself is all that difficult. “Just don’t read it. How hard is that? If you don’t agree with a TV show, you don’t watch it. If you don’t like a movie, you don’t go to it. So if you don’t like a book, don’t read it. Don’t let your kids read it. It’s pretty simple to me,” Doyel said. The American Library Association always celebrates Banned Books Week the last week of September, falling Sept. 24 through Oct. 1 for 2011. Banned Books Week is meant to highlight the benefits of free

Woodbine Public Youth Library celebrates “Banned Books Week” and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. And it may hit closer to home then one would think. “Before I started working here, I was told there was a group that tried to ban the Harry Potter series from here,” Doyel said. “I don’t know how

far they pushed, but I know that in the Library Bill of Rights that public libraries use, it states that, ‘Materials should not be proscribed or removed because of partisan or doctrinal disapproval,’ and ‘Libraries should challenge censorship in the fulfillment of their responsibility to provide information and enlightenment.’” Aside from that, Doyel cited attempted bannings in Waterloo

as well as Kenawha and Newton. In 2007 in Newton, the classic novel, “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck was challenged due to concerns of profanity and the portrayal of Jesus Christ. In Waterloo, ”The Catcher in the Rye” by JD Salinger was contested in 1992 due to profanity, lurid passages about sex and statements defamatory to minorities, God, women and the disabled. Other books, such as classics “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “Gone With the Wind” and “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” were banned due to the use of a now used derogatory term for those of African American descent.

The 23rd annual Applefest was more than successful, with the highest number of car show registrations to date at about 300. Thanks in part to good weather, the event saw the streets of Woodbine packed. At left, two young Applefest goers, enjoyed their time at Applefest, celebrating with the car show and caramel Apples.

In June of this year, 660 surveys regarding the recycling habits and needs of Woodbine residents were mailed along with their monthly utility bill. The goal was to obtain a feel for how many residents already recycled, if a curbside garbage and recycling program would be a good fit in Woodbine and, if so, what type of program should the city look to invest in. Of those 660 surveys, 155 responses were received. “We had about a 25 percent return rate, which we thought was pretty good,” Woodbine City Administrator Joe Gaa said. Survey results revealed insight into residents’ garbage and recycling habits such as the fact 96 percent of Woodbine residents utilize a vendor to collect their garbage curbside, with the collection split between two vendors. Most households leave their garbage in their driveway, according to 57 of the 155, with the front yard and alley following close behind at 39 and 37 respectively. Of those 155 responses, 77 percent recycle, or 119 of the 155, with newspaper being the See RECYCLE Page 8

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


From alpacas to antiques to Applefest thank yous


he hot rods were lined up waiting to leave town, car windows rolled down and elbows hanging out … a picture perfect autumn sun setting on the 23rd year of Applefest. And what a beautiful day it was! Now it’s time to commend those who work so hard to make the festival happen year after year. First on the list: the City of Woodbine employees. For the last 10 days or so, city employees have been faithfully going through a very long list of necessary housekeeping chores, making our community spic and span for the visitors that quadruple our population every last Saturday in September. It showed. The town looked wonderful … streets cleaned, parks and green spaces mowed and trimmed, Walker Street hosed down, flags flying. This thing called Applefest just doesn’t occur without municipal support, and every year the City of Woodbine and its dedicated employees manage to get it all done. Thank you. Next on the list are the members of the Applefest Steering Committee who start meeting in the spring each year prior to the festival, planning and plotting ways to improve the festival: from brainstorming better traffic flow to the puzzling challenge of squeezing all the cars, tractors, vendors, crafters and everything else into a pretty compact little footprint. It definitely takes some strategy, but working together they manage to negotiate suitable places for both the Corvettes and the alpacas, the apple pies and the antiques. The committee, led by Chairman Marvin Kelley, is comprised of people who love their town and take pride in the longevity of the festival. It’s not an easy task. Some have been working on the Steering Committee for 23 years, others are newcomers. They each take on a special division of the festival, recruiting their own volunteer groups to assist. On the Steering Committee are Bev Ganzhorn, Dwight and Marion Mills, Zell Millard, Dencil Hammack, Jason Bush, Jane Gardner, Nancy Foutch, Jim Ricciardi, Elaine Ehlert, Linda Dickman, Burton and Hattie Moores and the Main Street office. Of course, there were many, many Twiners working like crazy at various community organization or church booths or their own commercial enterprises. Some people go from one place to another place … flipping pancakes, baking pies, keeping trash bins emptied or selling raffle tickets. All the revenue stays right here in Woodbine, along with the dollars that flow through the Applefest Steering Committee and back out to various organizations and worthwhile projects in town. Number 23 was a great success – thanks to all of you.

I am amazed that readers of my past columns have such long memories! This week I received an email requesting that I repeat a column I wrote way back in the 1980’s! She said she thought “today’s football widows needed to see it.” Far from me to argue, and I did find the old column, so here it is once more. It’s the time of year when husbands (or other “significant” males) are glued to the TV for every football game they can find. As I have said before to the ladies, “If you can’t lick ‘em, join ‘em!” But to do so, you need to understand the game. Let me enlighten you a bit! You know about the football field, with all those lines running across it, but do you know which one is the line of scrimmage? No? Well, don’t worry, for it really isn’t visible. The line of scrimmage is somewhere between the two teams and they line up and glare at each other from whichever side they are supposed to be on. There seems to be conflicting ideas about the exact location because they keep changing it! But all the important action begins there. Each scrimmage play is measured in downs. The team having the possession of the ball has four chances to make ten yards of progress toward those two tall poles at each end of the field. When they advance the ball ten yards, they make a first down, get to keep the ball, and have four more chances to advance another ten yards. If they don’t make ten yards in four tries, then the other team gets the ball and tries the same procedure in the opposite direction. Making these downs is very important! Each team will try every method of mayhem to prevent the other team from making them. Sometimes the downs are made by one player throwing the ball as far as he can toward the end of the field. Players from each team are waiting there, and they all try to catch the ball. Whoever does catch it is in immediate trouble, because he is violently upended by the opponents, who pile on him and try to smother him. Sometimes the ball is torn from his hands, and for some strange reason this is called a fumble, although the poor guy was obviously attacked and forced to drop the ball. If he manages to escape and carry the ball into what is called the end zone, it creates a lot of excitement, for that counts six points. That’s still not the end of it though, ‘cause some other poor guy with only one good shoe has to try to kick the ball between those two poles for two more points. The game is divided into “quarters” and after two “quarters comes the “half.” During the half, the teams leave the field and watch their coaches draw


pictures and give vent to loud and vituperate “pep talks.” After the half, the teams switch around and try to go in the opposite direction, and they keep this up for the other two quarters until the game is over. Obviously whoever gets the most points wins. Just a little info about the players on each team. A quarter back is smaller than a half back, who is smaller than a full back. The end or flanker is usually the smallest and most timid, for he keeps running away when they try to hit him with the ball. A split end is said to have “a great pair of hands,” and he shows them off by running around waving them in the air and shouting, “Here! Here!” A tight end isn’t inebriated, but sometimes you wonder the way he staggers around. The linemen are the most vicious! They create havoc by using bone-jarring tactics called blocks and tackles. The linebackers bring down any hapless player who manages to escape the punishment of the linemen! The punter, when his team doesn’t make enough downs, kicks the ball in disgust, sometimes sending it all the way down the field. Then someone picks it up and tries to bring it back where it came from. He usually fails, and it seems silly anyway. Other personnel includes the coaches and their assistants, who stand on the sidelines, screaming and waving, while everyone ignores them. The officials – those guys with the striped convict shirts – talk with their hands. Their word is supposed to be law, but hardly anyone agrees with them. Sometimes they become so irritated that they throw red flags all over the place at random. Then everyone has to gather around and find out what ticked them off! While this is happening, the chain gang (usually out of shape ex-jocks) take a rest. They are tired from running up and down with a length of chain attached to two rods. Another guy has a pole with numbered flip cards on top. Every time the chain gang gets stopped, the card man flips and they have to take off again. Even when they carry the chain out onto the field and try to stab the football with the rod, they usually miss it an inch or two! There is much more, but you now can enjoy the game with your husband. Trust me, he will be amazed at this knowledge you have gained!

The harbingers of fall


any people are used to the term harbinger associated with the coming of spring, but as I drove south today, it sure seems appropriate to note harbingers of fall as well. I enjoy the nice things that each season in Iowa brings. But if I am forced to choose, fall is my favorite, and those early indicators are now in abundance. Fall-flowering wildflowers are approaching their peak along roadsides, field edges and in prairies. Canada goldenrod is really noticeable with its plumes of rich gold growing in clumps on roadsides. If you look closely, the goldenrod hosts a rich mix of interesting insects and spiders. Lately, I have been on the minor mission of convincing people that goldenrod does not contribute to hay fever suffering! The poor goldenrod plant has been maligned (wrongly) for generations because it is attractive, but chooses its neighbors and timing of flowering poorly.

About the time its gold wands of flowers begin to show, there is a profusion of late-season ragweed and other pollens sent airborne, and hay fever sufferers have visually associated the two events as one. In actuality, goldenrod produces rather sticky pollen that needs to be carried from place to place by insects rather than by the wind. Hence the profusion of insect activity on the plumes of flowers – the plant is simply providing a food offering to the insects in exchange for transporting of the pollen from flower to flower. Another fall marker is the flagging of trees as leaves wrap up the end of the season with a blaze of glory. What actually happens is the green chlorophyll that captures the sun’s energy goes away, exposing other base colors. The various shades of fall leaves depend on both the typical characteristics of the species and the seasonal weather. This year will likely be

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator better for fall color than some other parts of Iowa, because we have gotten more mid and late summer rainfall than many places east of us. The good summer rainfall helps develop the expression of colors. And yet another friendly reminder of the coming fall and winter is the aggregation and mass departure of monarch butterflies. A big reason the monarchs are held in warm regard is that they have some advantages in that they are large and attractive, they have interesting larvae that feed on milkweed, which isn’t a crop plant, they don’t harm people and we know about their amazing annual migration to central Mexico and then back in the spring. Oh yes, I had a nearly bad reminder of yet

another fall harbinger this morning on my way to the office. Early to mid-fall is a particularly notable time for deer-car accidents; just west of Magnolia I had a family of white-tailed deer challenge fate and dash in front of me. Fortunately, I saw them and could avoid the entourage, but it reminds me that the deer are quite active now as rut – breeding season – ensues. It seems their small minds are driven by factors that make them be mobile and even more oblivious to passing cars. So be especially careful driving for the next month or so.

Joan Oviatt, age 78, of Logan, passed away Sun., Sept., 18, 2011 at the Westmont Care Center in Logan. Joan was born March 10, 1933 to Amon and Gwendolyn (Watkins) Oviatt, on a farm southeast of Logan. She was the second of six children. She was called Joan. She attended Logan Grade School and graduated from Logan High School in 1951. Joan was a telephone operator for the local telephone com-

Any good coach will tell you that defense wins football games. The same goes for winning the battle against the seasonal flu. “Getting a flu shot is your best defense against getting sick this year,” Harrison County Home & Public Health D e p a r t m e n t Administrator Brent Saron said. “And our game plan is to tackle the flu by holding countywide flu shot clinics.” Almost a dozen clinics are already scheduled, and Saron’s team is ready.

“We’ve received all of the flu vaccine that we ordered,” Harrison County Public Health Nurse BJ Abrams said. “H1N1 nearly caught us off-guard last year, but this year we are ready and equipped.” Abrams is referring to this year’s vaccine, which protects against the seasonal flu and the H1N1 virus. “When you get the shot, you get an all-out blitz on the flu.” The flu shot clinic schedule includes: Sept. 28, Logan Community Center, 1-3 p.m.; Sept. 29, Mondamin Community Center, 9-11 a.m.; Oct. 7, Missouri Valley Rand Center, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Oct. 11, Persia Community Center, 9-11 a.m.; Oct. 12, Dr. Drew’s in Pisgah, 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., and Little Sioux

Second Ave. in Logan by calling (712) 644-2220. Anyone can get and spread the flu, even healthy people. While the flu can make anyone sick, certain people are at a greater risk for serious complications from the flu, including the elderly; young children, people with chronic lung disease (such as asthma and COPD), diabetes (type 1 and 2), heart disease, neurologic conditions and certain other longterm medical conditions and pregnant and postpartum women. Abrams reminds citizens that this year’s flu shot is needed even if they got a shot last season because flu viruses are always changing. Last season’s vaccine may not protect against the viruses circulating this season, warns Abrams. Annual vaccination is the only way to maintain protection. For more information about the flu, visit, or call (712) 644-2220. HCHPH can also be found on Facebook by searching “Harrison County Home & Public Health.”

Reinvesting Dividends Can Pay Off When you invest in stocks, you want their price to go up. But of course, you can’t control the rise and fall of stock prices. However, there is a key element of investing that you can control — the number of shares you own. And in the long run, share ownership may be more important than rising stock prices in determining your long-term investment success. Of course, you might think that the advice of “buy more shares” is easier said than done. After all, not everyone can easily find a lot of extra money to invest. But you don’t need access to vast wealth to increase your share ownership — you just need to consistently reinvest your stock dividends. Just how important are reinvested dividends to wealth accumulation, as compared to capital gains (the increase in stock prices)? Over the 135-year period from 1871 through 2003, owning stocks and reinvesting the dividends produced 97% of all stock market returns, with only 3% coming from capital gains, according to a major study done by Dr. Jeremy Siegel, one of the world’s leading researchers on stock market performance. Other studies have also pointed to the importance of dividends as a component of

total returns. What are the implications of this disparity between the effectiveness of dividend reinvestment versus that of capital gains? First of all, it suggests that you may not want to spend an undue amount of time and effort in chasing after “hot” stocks, hoping for big capital gains. For one thing, by the time you buy these stocks, they may already be cooling off, but even more importantly, your focus on achieving large capital gains may not be the best use of your financial resources. Ultimately, the power of dividend reinvestment means, not surprisingly, that you may be able to help yourself if you look for quality dividend-paying stocks — and then reinvest the dividends, month after month and year after year. With just a little research, you can find stocks that have paid — and even increased — dividends for many years in a row. (Keep in mind, though, that not all stocks will pay dividends, and even those that do can reduce or discontinue them at any time. Dividend reinvestment does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.) So, to help boost your share ownership,

consider reinvesting the dividends back into the stock, rather than taking them as cash payments. If you do choose to reinvest your dividends, though, you will need to look to other types of investments to provide you with income, assuming you need some income from your portfolio, which may become more necessary during your retirement years. Your financial advisor can help you determine the appropriate investments to help provide this income. But in any case, if you can do without the current income provided by dividends, give careful consideration to reinvesting them. Dividend reinvestment is not a glamorous investment strategy, and it won’t help you “get rich quick,” but it can help you make steady progress toward your long-term financial goals — and that’s a key dividend in itself.

Library fighting for the freedom of the written word From BOOKS Page 1 “But you have to put things in context. When these books were written, the context of the word was prevalent. It wasn’t written into these books to offend or upset people, it’s just the way it was. You’re going to ban a book for one word?” she asked. “Do I agree with the word myself? No. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to say, ‘Don’t read that book.’ You have to take it in context.” Doyel also cited “Whale Talk” by Chris Crutcher as being targeted in Harrison County’s own Missouri Valley. The Missouri Valley School Board voted 3-2 in March of 2007 to allow the book to be read by 10th through 12th graders, but if it was used in the classroom, parents would be allowed to select an alternative book. Brit Liljedahl, Brenda Dooley and Dan Zaiser voted in favor of the resolution while Trish Allmon and Mark Warner opposed it. Ironically, “Whale Talk” has been classified as carrying the primary themes of overcoming obstacles … and teaching tolerance and humanity. A bit of background information in the past 10 years regarding The 4,660 books that were either challenged or banned from American libraries: • 1,536 were challenged due to “sexually explicit” material • 1,231 were chal-

The Woodbine Public Youth Library carries a variety of books - including books that have been challenged or banned. This week, Sept. 24 through Oct. 1 is celebrated by the American Library Association and their members as “Banned Books Week.” The week is meant to highlight the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. Above are four books that have been challenged including: “Snakehead,” part of the Alex Rider series by British author Anthony Horowitz, challenged in a elementary school Florida because “drug and weapons smuggling and gang violence is too much for any child to have access to”; “Betrayed,” book two of the House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, challenged in an Alaska high school because “it simply causes kids to think even more of things sexual”; “Speak” by Laurie Halse Anderson, banned due to story plot focused around sexual assault; and “Bone,” a allcolor graphic novel series from Jeff Smith, challenged due to content regarding gambling, drinking and sexual appeal. Photo: Submitted lenged due to “offensive language” • 977 were challenged due to material deemed “unsuited to age group” • 553 were challenged due to “violence” • 370 were challenged due to “homosexuality” Out of those numbers, 1,720 of the challenges were in classrooms, 1,432 were in school libraries

and 1,119 were in public libraries. And Doyel stands her ground … no books should be banned or even challenged. It’s a choice. It’s a freedom thing. “It’s about freedom. It boils down to when people complain about the horrible things banned in other countries that do

this or don’t do that. Then they come here and want the books taken out of schools and the libraries? It’s only a small thing … but you take these books out of the school and circulation, then what’s next? They tell you what clothes you can wear? What you can say? It all just spirals,” she said.

In honor of Banned Books Week, Doyel has set up a display inside the Youth Library with a list of statistical figures – including where certain books were banned and/or challenged and the reason(s) why. All of which she believes can be fixed simply. “If you don’t agree with it, don’t read it.

Don’t let your kids read it. It’s pretty simple to me,” she said. “They’re books. They are written for entertainment purposes.” For more information on Banned Books Week, visit the Woodbine Public Youth Library or visit the American Library Association’s Website at

City of Woodbine considers curbside recycling From RECYCLE Page 1 highest recycled product with 66 percent. Other recyclables included cans (61 percent), paper (60 percent), plastic (56 percent), cardboard (45 percent) and glass (9 percent). Overall, the majority of those responding answered that they would “really like” the idea of a curbside recycling program with 77 of the 155. An additional 57 said they “somewhat liked it” or were neutral in the matter. Nineteen didn’t like the idea at all. Several comments were also received with the return of the surveys, ranging from, “Is it feasible cost-wise?” to “Should have been done 20 years ago,” to “Hate the idea! Do not want to take business away from our private businesses in town.” Initially, the surveys were part of a the Woodbine Pilot Green

Committee’s idea that were in the early stages of development in winter of 2010, but the committee and the city realized there were and are several obstacles and hurdles to make prior to initiating a project such as this. “One obstacle is funding for bins and another would include accepting bids and entering into a contract with a hauler,” Gaa said. “But there are several benefits to having a program like this in town, such as it being a way to solidify garbage pickup and recycling in town. For those that don’t currently use a contracted service, the garbage can pile up which leads to odors and rodents. This would make it so garbage pickup would occur at every residence.” The fee(s) for the service would then be added on to Woodbine residents’ monthly utility

bills. While that might first sound like an increase in rate immediately, there are other things to take into consideration. “If you already are paying a contractor, you would just pay the utility bill instead. It’s not going to be that much different,” Gaa said. “And if you already have a contractor and you recycle by using the recycling bins, then it’ll be that much more convenient. And for those that have said they don’t currently recycle because it’s too inconvenient – then this is a really easy way to start recycling.” Currently, an attempt to secure funding is being sought in order to pay for the two bins each resident would need in order to comply with a curb-side recycling program. One bin for paper and paper products, the other for cans, bottles,

etc. “This is all something that would be contracted with a garbage hauler,” Gaa pointed out. “We would not increase city personnel, and it would not cost the city any extra funds.” For those that do recycle and wonder what happened to the bins – or if you are interested in recycling now – the recycling bins have been relocated to the alley behind Thomsen Chiropractic. For more information on the possible curb-side recycling program, contact City Administrator Joe Gaa at 647-2550. “It is important to note that this issue is still being studied by the city staff and briefings are provided to the council as the issue evolves,” Gaa said. “If implemented, the program is not expected to begin at the earliest until spring of 2012.”

Take that step: Detect breast cancer early SHORT Do you know someone who is putting off having a mammogram? Is it you? If it’s hard to get motivated, listen to Lisa Zeis, a human resources executive, who was treated for an aggressive form of breast cancer. “Early detection is key,” Zeis said. “If I had not conducted a self check and found my lump early, it’s possible that I could still be fighting cancer that had spread or, even worse, not even be here to tell my story.” As the American Cancer Society notes, one in eight women will have breast cancer, so the chances are good that you care about someone who has been affected by the disease, or could be. Women should take

screenings very seriously, said nurse practitioner Christy Jackson, of the Alegent Health Clinic in Woodbine. “If you think you’re too busy to get a mammogram, look at it this way – it’s only an hour out of your year,” Jackson said. “The best defense is to find breast cancer as early as possible – when it is small, has not spread, and is easier to treat.” A mammogram really can save your life, she said. “Mammograms can find a lesion a year or two before we can feel it,“ she said. “It’s easy for patients to miss something, even with regular self exams.” Beginning in her 20s, said Jackson, a woman should learn about the

benefits and limits of breast self-exam. She can decide to use the stepby-step approach on a specific schedule or simply learn to feel her breasts for changes. The most important thing is that a woman is aware of how her breasts normally look and feel. “If there are any new changes, she should tell her physician right away,” Jackson said. “It’s important to remember that finding a breast change does not necessarily mean there is a cancer, but you must get it checked out.” If you think you may be a high risk for breast cancer, due to family history or other reasons, consult with your family physician to set a plan, she said. The American Cancer

Society recommends these guidelines for most women: Ages 20 to 39 Have a clinical breast exam by a healthcare professional every three years. Be aware of what your breasts normally look and feel like, and report any changes or new breast symptoms to a doctor or nurse right away. Breast self-exam is an option. Ages 40 and over Get a mammogram every year. Have a yearly clinical breast exam by a healthcare professional, near the time of the mammogram. Report any breast changes, including changes in how the skin looks or feels, to your healthcare provider right away. Breast self-exam is an option.

Community Kiwanis donates dictionaries to WCS third graders Great Iowa Treasure Hunt

For the fourth year in a row, the Woodbine Kiwanis Club donated third grade Woodbine Elementary students with a student’s dictionary. The third graders use them for their daily word of the day assignments. Each dictionary is personalized with the students’ name. The dictionaries are purchased through a nonprofit organization called The Dictionary Project where the mission is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers and resourceful learners by providing them with their own dictionary. The Dictionary Project is being accomplished world wide with the support of local sponsors, such as the Woodbine Kiwanis Club. Pictured in back are Woodbine Kiwanis Secretary Becky Flint and Woodbine Kiwanis President Don Groff who presented the third graders with the dictionaries on Sept. 23. Photo: Submitted

State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald is bringing the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt to Harrison County in hopes of returning lost money to its rightful owner. “We are holding over $320,212.98 for Harrison County citizens in the Great Iowa Treasure Hunt,” Fitzgerald said. “We have had tremendous success returning unclaimed property in Harrison County. We have returned $271,988.27 for people in Harrison County, but we are always looking for more individuals. The fall publication is just beginning and we hope to reunite as many people with their lost treasures as possible.” The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt program has returned over $135 million in unclaimed property to more than 314,000 individuals since Fitzgerald started it in 1983.

Common forms of unclaimed property include savings or checking accounts, stocks, uncashed checks, life insurance policies, utility security deposits and safe deposit box contents. Make sure to keep watch for the upcoming publication. Individuals who would like to check to see if they have unclaimed property are encouraged to visit, e-mail the treasurer at or write to: Michael Fitzgerald, State Treasurer, Great Iowa Treasure Hunt, Lucas Building, Des Moines, IA 50319.

Blank Park Zoo’s K-12 Education Coordinator Kathy McKee from Des Moines came to Woodbine Elementary on Sept. 23 to present Character Counts with animals from the zoo. Each animal represented one of the six pillars of Character Counts. McKee brought a parrot, ball python (snake), a rabbit and an American alligator. Blank Park Zoo is proud to present Alligators, Snakes, Good Character and You! This presentation uses live animals to teach students to respect life and nature and take responsibility for their room, home, school and community. The program also explores how the six pillars of character are just like the components of nature, in that they are all dependent on one another. Students will be challenged to be good citizens and make kind and caring choices. Photos: Nikki Davis

Euken and Loftus stand up for Iowa Farmers in Washington, D.C. Fourteen Farm Bureau leaders discussed their concerns regarding farm programs, regulation pressure and the importance of trade with lawmakers and department leaders in Washington, D.C., Sept. 11-15. Members of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation’s Ag Leaders Institute – spoke with

representatives from their respective congressional districts, as well as Iowa’s two senators and various federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Environmental Protection Agency. Those participating in the trip included Stacie Euken of Wiota and Mason Loftus of Missouri Valley. As Congress looks to slash $1.5 trillion from the federal budget this year, Iowa farmers emphasized the importance of crop insurance programs that play vital roles in their risk management planning. “We want a safety net than includes revenue protection,” Calhoun County Farm Bureau member Ben Albright said. “Crop insurance is probably the most important. We’re talking about a lot of dollars to put in a crop.” The Farm Bureau leadership group also told politicians they are putting American agriculture at a disadvantage

by not passing proposed free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama. The three trade agreements represent almost $2.5 billion in additional exports if implemented. Brian Feldpausch, who raises hogs and cattle in Grundy County, agreed. “Anything we can do to make sure we keep that market share, it means a lot. With these high feed prices, its exports that allow us to make a profit,” he said. The Ag Leaders Institute is a year-long program offered to select Farm Bureau members around the state. The program provides cutting-edge information about agricultural issues while developing individual leadership skills and working to create a network of leaders across Iowa. The Institute culminates with a trip to Washington, D.C., and graduation at the Iowa Farm Bureau annual meeting, Dec. 7-8 in Des Moines. The Institute has prepared nearly 300 leaders since 1998.

The Woodbine Twiner

Sports Tigers lose big to (State Ranked) East Mills JEFF POWERS For The Twiner The Wolverines of East Mills, a team ranked in the top five in state, came to Woodbine Sept. 23. East Mills, led by a talented and experienced group of seniors, was too much to handle for the young, injury riddled Tigers. The game ended with a 57-10 final score. “On Friday night we were simply outmatched against East Mills. We were unable to match their team speed or they level of physical play. I thought that there was good effort in places and by certain players, but overall not to the level that we needed to be playing if we expected to compete with a team as talented as they were,” Head Coach Jason Strong said. There weren’t many highlights in the first half for the Tigers on offense or defense as East Mills scored on nearly every possession. The Tiger offense was stymied most of the first half punting

the ball back eight times after only three plays. The Tigers managed a field goal, which was set up by an interception by Tanner Hedstrom. The Tigers managed only one first down on a long run by the quarterback inside the five yard line. After three plays, the Tigers attempted another field goal which was blocked by EM. The Tiger defense also struggled in the first half. The East Mills offense scored seven times in their first nine possessions. They struck often and quickly with several long touchdown passes as the Tigers were unable to put any pressure on the quarterback. The Tigers only forced one punt. The only bright spots were Hedstrom’s interception and a fumble recovery by Josh Matusik. The halftime score was East Mills 51, Woodbine 3. With the continuous clock in effect for the second half and a couple of long drives, each team only had three posses-

sions each. On the Tigers’ second possession in the fourth quarter, the team put together a nice scoring drive. After three first downs and 10 plays, Mason Mentink caught a six yard touchdown pass, giving the Tigers their only touchdown of the night. The defense stopped EM on their first two possessions but gave up a long touchdown run on the third possession making the final score EM-57, WB-10. “I thought that Sam Powers had a good game dealing with the pressure that East Mills applied at the line. He also punted the ball extremely well. I also thought that we had some of the younger players step in and play well. Tanner Hedstrom made his first career interception,” Strong said. The team was led defensively by Matt Monahan and Sam Powers with eight tackles each followed by Lucas Hedstrom with six. On offense rushing and passing, Powers accounted for 115 of the 118 yards of

Cross Country team facing injuries, illness

Claire Probasco

JC Probasco Sept. 24, Harlan While the majority of Woodbine was delving into caramel applies, blooming onions, shaved ice and homemade ice cream and apple pie on Woodbine’s Applefest morning, the Woodbine cross country team headed out to Harlan to for a day of tough competition. “It was a very tough meet with most schools 3A and 4A in size,” Head Coach Rod Smith said. Fourteen schools were present and many were state rated or had state rated runners. The girls saw a good meet, but were hampered with injuries. Shelby Hall finished first for the Woodbine girls, taking fourth, with Megan Maaske not too far behind in 12th. Rounding out the team was: Shelby Dick, 41st; Ellen Cox, 51st; Claire Probasco, 58th; and Alyssa Blum, 66th out of 73 run-

ners. The Lady Tigers tallied a sixth place finish at the meet with 160 points. Fifth placed Treynor bested them by a mere three points at 157. Harlan won their home meet with 47. “Shelby Hall and Megan Maaske had great races,” Smith said. The rest of the team suffered a slew of issues, with Paige Hackman not running due to illness, Cox running with an injured ankle, Probasco having stomach issues and Emily Schwery unable to finish the race due to an injury. In junior varsity action, Megan Pauley placed 31st and Natasha Maron, 33rd, out of 41 runners. In junior high, Kendra Vogel ran a great race, finishing fifth. Also competing were Sonya Baxter, 20th; Jesse Maron, 46th; and Macenzie Hicks, 50th, out of 60 runners. “Eighth grader Kendra Vogel ran a great race,” Smith said. In boys’ action, things were a little more difficult. “The boys struggled in the tough competition and Levi Brown was at home, ill,” Smith said. The team finished 14th out of 14 teams with 426 points. Glenwood won the race with 51. Individually for the Tigers, Trevor Barnum finished first in 77th out of 98 total runners. JC Probasco took 82nd, Hunter Probasco finished 88th, Zeb Schwery came in 89th with Tristan Hatterman in 90th, Jameson Delaney in 92nd and Davis Hackman last for the team in 93rd. The junior varsity boys also struggled: Drew Radloff, 95th; Logan Wroth, 101st; Colten Hicks, 105th; Chris Andersen, 130th and Daniel Willis, 136th out of 136 runners. Out of the 68 junior high boys competing, Jared Roden finished 49th and Trent Willis took 68th. Sept. 20, Tri-Center The Woodbine cross country teams ran well at the Tri-Center meet on Sept. 20 with the boys placing seventh and the girls, second. The boys finished seventh out of 11 with 170 points. They came in behind: 1. Missouri valley, 57; 2. Boyer Valley, 66; 3. Riverside, 66; 4. Tri-Center, 76; 5. Underwood, 119; and 6. Logan-Magnolia, 133.

“The kids continue to show improvement and ran well at Tri-Center, even with some coming down with some illnesses,” Head Coach Rod Smith said. “There were 11 schools and all of them were more our size.” Levi Brown finished first for the squad, placing 20th. “Levi is starting to run better,” Smith said. Jameson Delaney, who was on the verge of being ill, finished second for the Tiger team in 30th. Other finishers included: JC Probasco, 42nd; Trevor Barnum, 44th; Davis Hackman, 49th; Tristan Hatterman, 50th; and Drew Radloff, 54th out of 61 runners. Zeb Schwery had a good finish for the junior varsity boys in fourth place as well as Hunter Probasco behind him in seventh. Other JV runners included: Logan Worth, 14th; Colton Hicks, 17th; Chris Andersen, 19th; and Daniel Willis, 20th out of 21. The Woodbine girl’s team ran a great race, taking second at the meet with 57 points. Host team, Tri-Center, bested the Lady Tigers by 15 points, taking first with 42 points. Missouri Valley was nipping on the girls’ heals in third with 64. Shelby Hall once again finished in the top spot for the Tiger girls in third with Megan Maaske close behind in eighth. Ellen Cox and Shelby Dick didn’t lag too far back, taking 12th and 18th respectfully. Alyssa Blum finished 27th, Paige Hackman, on the verge of illness, finished 28th and Claire Probasco took 38th out of 52 runners to round out the girls team. “The ‘two Shelby’s,’ Megan and Ellen really ran great races,” Smith said. “And it’s good to see Shelby Dick starting to come on for us.” In junior varsity action, Emily Schwery, Megan Pauley and Natasha Maron finished fourth, sixth and seventh respectfully out of seven runners. In junior high action, Jared Roden took 21st out of 25 for the boys and, out of 27 female runners, Kendra Vogel finished fourth; Sonya Baxter, 10th; Jesse Maron, 13th; and Macenzie Hicks, 17th.

The Tigers will take a long road trip to Grand Junction to take on 2-3 East Greene, a 78-31 loser to Glidden Ralston last week. Strong is optimistic about the team’s chances against East Greene, “Next week will need to regroup and be ready to play to the level we have shown prior to the

East Mills game. East Greene will be a team that has been up and down and one that I believe we match up much better than we did against East Mills. This week we need to get back to the physical style of play that nearly got us a win versus Coon Rapids. We also will need to work on our offensive timing, which was a little

off, in order to score some points. We simply need keep working to become a better football team each week and let the chips fall where they may,” Strong said. The Tigers have four games left on the 2011 season. The next four games is the start of the second half of the season. Game time 7 p.m.

Lady Tigers qualify for Conference finals The Woodbine Lady Tigers volleyball team won three of their five opening games of the Conference Tournament on Sept. 24 and finished the day in second place. The second place finish qualified them to continue on to finals on Sept. 25 (results to follow in the Oct. 5 edition of The Woodbine Twiner), beginning against LawtonBronson. Conference Tournament Sept. 24 vs OA-BCIG Win, 2-1 (21-12, 19-21, 17-15) While their hometown was celebrating an annual hometown event, Applefest, the Woodbine volleyball team was vying for the title of conference champion in Mapleton, beginning the tourney off right with a 2-1 win over OA-BCIG. The Tigers started with a quick set win at 21-12 but lost a little momentum in the second set, lagging behind, but not by much, losing the set 21-19. A drawn out final set, vying for those 15 points, pushed the teams over the limit, with the Lady Tigers eventually finishing on top at 17-15. Leading the way for Woodbine was Justina Royer with 13 kills and Shelby Vandemark with a high 23 digs. Kaitlyn Pulscher added 18 assists for the team and Taylor Barry held the team high in blocks with two. Barry also went 11-for-12 serving with one ace while Samijo Klaahsen, returning from an injury, managed 8-for-8 and her own ace. Vandemark and Royer each added two aces for the team. Conference Tournament Sept. 24 vs West Monona Win, 2-1 (17-21, 21-9, 15-11) The Lady Tigers began their matchup against West Monona a little slow, losing the first set 21-17, but fighting back to make short work of the remaining two sets at 21-9 and 15-11. Paving the way for Woodbine was Justina Royer in attacks with 28, followed by Cydney Meeker with nine. Kaitlyn Pulscher led in assists once again with 14 and added six digs, only one behind of Shelby Vandemark who managed seven digs during the game. Pulscher and

Taylor Barry led in blocks with two each. Pulscher was on her game during the match, adding four aces and serving 7-for-8. Tiffany Vasquez added her own three aces and went 12-for-13 during the game. Royer and Samijo Klaahsen added one ace each of their own. Conference Tournament Sept. 24 vs Woodbury Central Loss, 1-2 (21-13, 17-21, 9-15) It looked like the Lady Tigers were on their way to sweeping the start of the Conference Tourney, until they met Woodbury Central on the court. Even the first set was deceitful, with the Tigers making short work of Woodbury Central at 21-13. However, the following two sets weren’t as successful with the Lady Tigers falling by only a few points in the second set at 21-17 and missing the mark on the final set at 15-9 to take their first loss on the day. Leading for Woodbine was Justina Royer in kills with nine, Kaitlyn Pulscher in assists with 14 with Royer, Pulscher and Shelby Vandemark adding 11 digs each. Blocks were led by Taylor Barry and aces by Royer with four, with Pulscher and Vandemark adding two each. Conference Tournament Sept. 24 vs KingsleyPierson Win, 2-1 (17-21, 21-15, 15-11) Fans were worried when Kingsley-Pierson came out and took the Lady Tigers in the first set at the Conference Tourney at 21-17, but the Lady

Tigers pulled out of their funk and fought back to win the game in the final two sets at 21-15 and 1511. The team pulled in some high numbers with Justina Royer once again leading the way in attacks with 17, followed by Taylor Barry with 15, Kaitlyn Pulscher with 14 and Brittnay Nelson with 13. Pulscher led in assists with 13 and added 11 digs. Shelby Vandemark led in digs with 17, followed by Royer with 13. Barry served up 14-for-14 with the team’s high of four aces. Smaijo Klaahsen served at 9-for-9 with three aces and Vandemark added three aces. Royer went 12-for-12 on the serving line during the game. Conference Tournament Sept. 24 vs Maple ValleyAnthon-Otto Loss, 0-2 (9-21, 14-21) The Lady Tigers, tired from a full day of conference play, fell in their final game to MVAO in two sets, 21-9 and 21-14. The statistic numbers reflected the score with Taylor Barry leading in attacks with nine, followed by Justina Royer with seven and Lydia Payne and Kaitlyn Pulscher with six each. Pulscher led in assists with seven. Shelby Vandemark led in digs with six, followed by Lauren Dubas with five. Cydney Meeker and Royer added two blocks each for the team, the teams’ high. Samijo Klaahsen served the teams only two aces during the game.
