Community Thanksgiving Service Nov. 28 NIKKI DAVIS Editor The Woodbine Ministerial Association is ready to give thanks. And they would like to extend the opportunity for those of faith in all denominations to join in by attending the Community Thanksgiving Service at 4 p.m. Nov. 28 at the Community of Christ Church.

“The purpose is just for all people from the community of faith to come together and celebrate what we have in common,” Community of Christ Pastor Noel Sherer said. Sherer himself has fond memories of the Community Thanksgiving Service, remembering the event going back at least 40 years. “They’ve been doing

this since I was a little kid,” Sherer said, smiling. “It’s always been good and those who attend it, really enjoy it.” The service serves not only to lift the hearts and voices of attendees while offering fellowship, but to help the less fortunate through the holiday. An offering will be taken during the service, with the funds going to the WMA. The WMA, in

turn, utilizes the funds to help those that need it. “Our funding isn’t a real complicated mechanism,” Sherer, also the WMA’s treasurer, said. “We use the funds to help people pay their utility bills if they can’t, or help those See SERVICE Page 6

NIKKI DAVIS Editor The junior class at Woodbine High School might be led to believe the new color of money is pink after a successful, recent fundraiser. Three of the familiar, often joked about, pink flamingo yard ornaments travelled around Woodbine for a Black and Gold fundraiser called “Pinked.” The ornaments were placed at random homes in Woodbine with a letter attached stating the ornaments would be removed … for a price.

Members and volunteers make Main Street a success


tarting in the next month or so, you will begin to see Main Street Volunteers begin our membership drive. It’s hard to believe our first three year membership cycle is coming to an end. Many joined back in 2007 on faith alone, not knowing if any of our ambitious goals would become reality. In hindsight, I don’t think anyone (except Zell) could have predicted how successful our efforts would be. In the past, membership drive efforts focused on the businesses that comprise our community. One thing we have learned in the past three years however, Main Street is not just businesses, and in fact it is not just Main Street. Businesses are only as strong as the community that supports them. And to that end, beginning with this membership drive, everyone will have a chance to become a member. Starting at $25, any one person or family can show their support for Woodbine by joining. And you don’t have to live here either. Lots of Twiner Readers and former residents can show there support by buying a membership. So if we don’t talk to you personally, please watch the Twiner for membership information. Coming up March 25, 2011, is our third annual meeting. Always entertaining, we will have lots of completed projects to recognize and many more preparing to kick off in 2011. Mark your calendar now! We are in need of two new members for the Organization Committee. We meet the third Thursday of each month at 7 a.m. at City Hall. No experience is required; just a desire to help make your community a better place to live, shop and work. Call the office or me for any additional information. Watch for upcoming Open House announcements for the eyebrow gas station and the Odd Fellows building. These will be two community wide events to celebrate success and pride in Woodbine. See you there!!

YOU’VE GOT TO KEEP ON.................. One step won’t take you very far, you’ve got to keep walking, One word won’t tell them who you are, you’ve got to keep talking; An inch won’t make you very tall, you’ve got to keep on growing; One ad won’t do it all, you’ve got to keep them going. A constant drop of water wears away the hardest stone; By constant gnawing, Bowser masticates the toughest bone. The constant cooing lover carries off the blushing maid; And the constant advertiser is the one who gets the trade.

TURNING THE PAGES RITA BANTAM WOODBINE PUBLIC LIBRARIAN The library has a nice selection of magazines to check out and don’t forget about our audio selections. It’s a good way to listen to a book in the car or anywhere. Come in and enjoy the exhibit of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway. The traveling exhibits were created to promote the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway in Iowa, and to educate the public about the significance of this important historic route. The exhibit will be at the library for a month and maybe a little longer. Come and participate in our Library Knitting Circle on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. Just bring a project you are working on and bring a friend. We will not be having the knitting circle on Nov. 24, the day before Thanksgiving but will resume the following Wednesday. Favorite Library Quote: “Our libraries are not cloisters for an elite. They are for the people, and if they are not used, the fault belongs to those who do not take advantage of their wealth.” ~Louis Dearborn L’Amour

Letter to the Editor

Farmer’s Market a success Dear Editor On Thursday afternoons from June 17 through Oct. 21, the Harrison County Historical Village and Welcome Center was fortunate to host the first season of the Welcome Center Farmer’s Market. So many vendors made the commitment to sell at the market and

full-time vendors were also instrumental in helping us develop the market with their expertise and input. Full-time vendors for the 2010 season were Marcus Weigelt of Loess Hills Gardens; Becky Hodge, Hodge Greenhouse; Donna King, Highpoint Gardens, Ellen Dahl; Mary Hamer, Loess Hills Lavender Farm and Janna Feldman and Sharon Oamek of Honey Creek Creamery, Inc. So many people also helped with special events during the market including Cami Schafer and Dee Colwell

of Harrison County 4-H; Peggy Albers and Nancy King of Harrison County Master Gardeners; Joel Dirks and Barb Fuller of Iowa State University Extension. We want to especially recognize Bahia Barry of Golden Hills RC&D and the Southwest Iowa Food and Farm Initiative; Rich Pope of Harrison County Extension and Renea Anderson of Harrison County Development Corporation for serving on our advisory committee and sharing their expertise in developing and promoting the

farmer’s market. The citizens of Harrison County also need to be recognized for the support of the vendors and the farmer’s market week in and week out. Without your patronage, the market would not have been a success. We are extremely grateful for your support and hope you will join us next year for the second season of the Welcome Center Farmer’s Market.

Community Thanksgiving Service slated for Nov. 28 From SERVICE Page 1 facing special emergency needs situations.” Aside from monetary donations, a majority of those churches participating are hosting their own can drives for the Harrison County Food Pantry, and the special day of prayer will be no different. “We do want to invite people to bring their goods for the food pantry,” Sherer encouraged. “Canned goods, paper goods … It may feel a little different to bring it that night, but we’d just like to encourage people to participate as part of giving thanks.” The service, with

hopes of around 150 or more attending, usually lasts about an hour and is followed with refreshments and fellowship. The hour of service is packed with everything from a standard service, to a short overview on the history of Thanksgiving Day. Scripture, hymns and special music will be added to the hour as well. Father Howard Fitzgerald, new to Sacred Heart Catholic Church, will serve as the joint service’s lead speaker this year, although several of Woodbine’s religious figure heads will take part in the service. Fitzgerald won’t be

the only new face as the Community Service will serve as a first for several new ministerial leaders in the Woodbine community. “We have a number of new pastors and church leaders in town, and it sounds like everyone will be there,” Sherer said. One thing Sherer wanted noted was the date of the annual event. “We usually have this service the Sunday before Thanksgiving, but this time, we’re trying it the Sunday after, so everyone can be there and still enjoy their own, individual church’s Thanksgiving services,”

Sherer said. Sherer hopes the public will take the opportunity and the time to attend the annual service. “We, the Ministerial Association, want to encourage people to come to this upbeat service, and enjoy the feelings of community good will. There will be a pretty good mix of congregations giving us plenty to celebrate,” Sherer said. “Our churches come together to do many things, and sometimes I hear people say to me, ‘I wish we did this every Sunday.’ It’s faith and fellowship with family and community. I hope to see many people there.”

‘Pinked’ earns $700 for Black and Gold From PINKED Page 1 the money going towards Black and Gold’s general fund, was $20 to have the bird removed from the participants’ yard and amnesty from the birds’ return.

Woodbine chili cook-off Dec. 4 From CHILI Page 1 Woodbine Dollars to be spent the evening of ‘Bright Lights, Little City’ Christmas

In Woodbine, as well as bragging rights for having the best chili in town. The Woodbine Main

Street-Chamber hopes to have six chili cook-off contestants ready with their tasty wares in front of Carson and Clark from 4:30 pm until the chili is gone. The only rule the chili cookers were asked to follow was to bring a roaster full of their own chili, so the chili types and tastes may vary. And the tastiest of these chilies will be selected by the public. Cost of tasting is $1 for three tastes, with the

money being donated to Main Street projects. Tasters may then cast their vote for their favorite chili. At 8 p.m., a winner will be declared, giving them the $50 worth of Woodbine dollars to be spent the remainder of the annual celebration as well as a traveling trophy and bragging rights until the 2011 Woodbine Christmas celebration. Confirmed chili artists currently include Gary Hall, Greg Moores and Greg Kelley, but a few more teams are needed. If interested in participating, please contact Liz Lenz at 647-2629 or Lauren Cox at 647-2612.

Get Ready for the ‘Smart Grid’ Y

ou’re getting smarter about the way you use energy in your home, and the nation’s electrical system is about to make it easier for you. A “smarter” electrical grid will give consumers more options for using energy more efficiently. Among the many choices consumers will have under a “smart grid” system: • Instead of paying electricity rates based on the average cost of producing it, consumers could opt to buy electricity during hours when it’s cheaper because demand is low. • “Smart” electric meters will give consumers more specific information about how much electricity they’re using and when so they can make better decisions about using it.

Charitable Giving : A “Win -win” Activity Charitable Giving: A “Winwin” Activity Thanksgiving is a good time to be thankful for those charitable, educational and religious groups that provide your community with valuable services. And now may be a good time to consider supporting these groups because, if you contribute before the year is over, you may “do well by doing good” through valuable tax deductions. To illustrate the benefit of these deductions, let’s assume you’re in the 25% tax bracket. If you give $100 to a qualified charity, you can deduct $100 (with a tax benefit of $25) when you file your taxes. Consequently, the real cost of your donation is just $75 ($100 minus the $25 tax savings). As you consider your charitable gifts, keep the following points in mind: You must donate — not just pledge. You can make a pledge to donate, but the amount is not deductible until you actually pay it. You must contribute to a qualified charitable group. For your gift to be deductible, it must go to a qualified taxexempt organization — either a religious group or a group that has received 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. If you’re unsure if the group you want to support is tax-exempt, just ask. You must itemize. To claim a charitable deduction, you

must itemize deductions on your taxes. Thus far, we’ve talked only about cash gifts. But you may have other financial assets, such as stocks, that you can give to charitable groups, and these gifts also can earn you tax benefits. For example, suppose you give $500 worth of stock in XYZ Company to a charitable group. If you’re in the 25% tax bracket, you can deduct $125 when you file your taxes for 2010. But by donating the XYZ stock, you avoid paying any capital gains taxes you might have incurred if you had sold the stock yourself. Making charitable gifts now may help you reduce the size of your estate and potentially lower any future estate tax burden on your heirs. Right now, federal estate tax laws are in flux, but it’s possible that, one day, your estate might be large enough to generate estate taxes. If you wanted to formalize your charitable gifts and help your estate planning, you might consider establishing a charitable remainder trust. Under such an arrangement, you’d place some assets, such as stocks or real estate, in a trust, which could then use these assets to pay you a lifetime income stream. When you establish the trust, you may be able to

receive a tax deduction based on the charitable group’s “remainder interest” — the amount the charity is likely to ultimately receive. (This figure is determined by an IRS formula.) Upon your death, the trust would relinquish the remaining assets to the charitable organization you’ve named. Keep in mind, though, that this type of trust can be complex. To establish one, you’ll need to work with your tax and legal advisors. In any case, be generous during this season of giving. You’ll be helping a charitable group accomplish its worthy goals — and you may be helping yourself when tax time arrives.

2011 Yearbook Content: The 2011 Annual is a student publication, with students responsible for all parts of the yearbook, under the direction of the adviser. This yearbook is based on the concept of containing individual photos of the entire student body and staff, as well as a complete record of sports, academics, organizations and general student life. An index will always be included as a reference aid. The Editorial Board, the makeup of which can change from year to year, will assume final responsibility for the content of the book. At all times a professional tone will be cultivated throughout the book (without interfering with a sense of fun).

Black & Gold Told and 2011 Yearbook editorial policy There’s a reason for everything we do, And there’s a philosophy behind our decisions (and readers deserve to know what that is) Version 3.1, August 2011

The goals of the Black & Gold Told, the monthly student newspaper of Woodbine High School, are to inform, educate and entertain its readers; to provide a forum for the Woodbine Community to express attitudes and opinions; to provide an educational opportunity for both the students who produce Black & Gold Told and those who read it; and to provide a medium for commercial messages for yearbook sponsors. Purpose of the yearbook: The Black & Gold is a history book, a reference book, an educational tool and a memory book designed for Woodbine Community School students and produced by 2010-11 Desktop Publishing Journalism students. The Black & Gold Told receives Woodbine Community School District and Black and Gold Club funds. The 2011 Yearbook is funded by sponsorships and annual sales. Sponsorships; a page sponsor is worth $25.00, a two page spread is $30.00, a White Sponsorship is $50.00, a Black Sponsorship is $100.00, and a Gold Sponsorship is worth $150.00. Annuals are $40.00 each. Any income in excess of publishing costs realized from sales of the book is invested in capital improvements and/or other worthy projects as determined by the adviser, the Editorial Board and cleared by the WHS administration. Distribution of the Yearbook: Published once per year, the Black & Gold is a fall delivery book (i.e. arriving in mid-September). Books are available by subscription at prices determined annually by the Editorial Board and school administration (currently $40 and only guaranteed purchases are made before May 20, 2011). Copies may also be found in the school library, local public library and the Woodbine HS Desktop Publishing Journalism classroom. The newspaper is published three times per year (in the Woodbine Twiner), approximately after fall season, winter season and a special senior issue. It is distributed to students and faculty free of charge, with a limit of five copies per issue. Possession of more than five copies of this publication with intent to prevent other individuals from reading an edition is illegal. Subscriptions are available at the Woodbine Twiner office for different amounts per year (see list on right), and are mailed to subscribers. The Editorial Board retains the right to choose all content and to determine story priority. This Board is made up of 13 students –Editor-in-Chief, Yearbook Editor, Newspaper Editor, Copy Editor, Design Editors (4), Business Managers, Photo Editors (3), Video Editor – with the adviser a non-voting member of the Board. This Board also oversees the finances of the publications as well as various production operations. Work on the Black & Gold Told and 2011 yearbook is not limited strictly to members of the Desktop Publishing and Journalism class, though anyone serious about writing for the paper must at least complete journalism training with Mrs. Blum and/or work with current journalism students for special projects. Students enrolled in the Desktop Publishing class will not be allowed to drop the class at semester. This is a full year commitment and only students graduating at mid-year (in Dec.) will be allowed to leave. Daily attendance is also essential and daily assignments/points are given. All material – writing (other than editorials), photography, or art – appearing in the newspaper/yearbook will receive credit, with the method of credit being at the discretion of the journalism teacher. The Editorial Board will select editorial topics. These editorials will not be signed by the writer, but will reflect the opinion of the majority of the Editorial Board. The Board takes full responsibility for all editorials. Commentaries and columns, on the other hand, will be signed and reflect the views of the writer alone. They are not the official position of the Black & Gold Told. Editorial cartoons fall into the same category as commentaries. Any person with an interest in the Woodbine community who has an opinion to be voiced is encouraged to submit letters to the editor. All letters must be signed, but anonymity may be requested. It will be granted only if deemed necessary by the Editorial Board. Each request will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Letters may be submitted to a designated box in the school library, brought to Mrs. Blum’s room, mailed to Woodbine High School, care of the Black & Gold Told, or e-mailed to . All signatures will be verified through a phone call or personal interview. Letters should be fewer than 300 words in length. If excessive editing is needed, the letter will be returned to the author for corrections. It is preferred that letters be typed, although handwritten copies will be accepted, if legible. The Black & Gold Told reserves the right to edit any letter for grammatical errors, libelous content or space limitations. The Black & Gold Told will strive to present information in a fair, impartial, accurate and truthful manner. The newspaper will function in accord with all applicable laws, both in regards to the rights and restrictions of journalism. The Statement of Principles of the American Society of Newspaper Editors serves as the basis for the publication’s ethical standards. The basis for the publication’s legal positions include the DCSD policy and regulations pertaining to school publications and Colorado Rev. Stat. 22-1-120, student exercise of free expression. The Black & Gold Told and 2011 yearbook reserves the right to refuse any advertising not found to be within the publication’s standards, particularly in ref2011 Yearbook erence to good taste and to product and/or services that are illegal for the majority of high school readers. The school newspaper will not sell advertisements for the paper, but the students will collect money from the yearbook sponsorships: page(s), Black, White and Gold (see attached guidelines for these sponsors).

Reprinting is not an Reporting on student, faculty and community deaths can be sensitive, and the Editorial Board will confine its coverage to the News and personal (opinion) option. sections. The publication will always take into consideration the wishes of families, but maintains its responsibility to report truthfully on all aspects of life, and death, at Woodbine. As members of a student newspaper, reporters and editors may find themselves aware of violations of the law committed by students which do not involve authorities. However, only crimes and transgressions that result in official charges will be reported in the Black & Gold Told. It is not the Editorial Board’s goal to embarrass any member of the Woodbine community, but that discretion must be balanced with the Board’s responsibility to dispel rumors, report the facts and provide perspective on the community. Censorship: No administrator or other staff member of the Woodbine Community School District has the right to censor any student publication (with the exception of material deemed to be legally obscene, libelous or disruptive, as defined by Iowa statute). However, the Editorial Board takes a major responsibility for overseeing good taste and maintenance of community standards. The Board is also charged with maintaining the journalistic integrity of the publication. These are not mutually exclusive aims. The Editorial Board will regularly survey the student body on topical matters. These surveys will always be conducted through a random selection of the News sections, and will strive to include a random sampling of all four grades and both genders. A minimum of 30 students will be surveyed, resulting in an error rate of plus or minus three percent. Reporters for the Black & Gold Told will always identify themselves as functioning in that capacity before any interview or survey. It is not our intention to catch people in embarrassing or misleading quotations. The editors reserve the right to correct gross grammatical errors in quotations, if the source’s meaning will be distorted without such editing. Otherwise, quotations will be reported as stated by informed sources. There is one exception to this policy, and that is in the case of undercover reporting. This happens rarely, and only after considerable discussion within the Editorial Board. The Board recognizes that some stories cannot be adequately reported when sources are fully warned of the potential of publication. The authorities may be consulted prior to any undercover operation, and 2010-11 WHS students will not be asked to break the law in pursuit of a story. Journalism Staff: Sources will not be allowed to read the final text of any story to be published in the Black & Gold Told prior to publication. Reporters may read back quotaPhotographers: tions to sources, and will follow up with sources who wish to supplement their initial interviews. The Editorial Board will consider the relative experience of the Jennifer Hinkel source in dealing with the press in each case. Sources may wish to have their names withheld from a particular story, and some may have valid reasons for this. The Editorial Board will decide on a case by Brittney Nelson case basis whether anonymity may be granted to protect the source. The Board recognizes that a high school is a very confined community of young people, and Christian Kuhlman that some topics, while important to the community, may involve public embarrassment and official sanctions if names are printed. Once anonymity is granted, Reporters: the board must stand behind its decision, whatever the pressure. This, therefore, is a weighty decision. Samuel Jablonski Equipment: Students assume responsibility for all equipment used in the Publications Lab when they utilize that equipment. Normal wear and tear is expectTravis Erwin ed, but willful abuse or neglect of equipment will result in a fine being levied against students to effect repairs. This includes photographic equipment and computers. Rebekka Boer Self-Imposed Limitations: Copy and captions will not be knowingly demeaning to students.“Gag” captions will never be used. Baby pictures, class wills, last Chelsea Helwig testaments and other similarly outdated and trivial features will not be included in the editorial portion of the book. These items may be included in the wrap-up Videographers: section of the yearbook. If the advisor suspects demeaning text and/or photos on a page in the yearbook or school newspaper publications, the page in the yearBrandon Jones book, article, or photo will be changed by the advisor without hesitation or permission by the Editorial Board.

NELSON For The Twiner The trial date for the man accused of killing four motorcyclists in a drunken-driving crash has been moved from December to January. A n d r e w Schlichtemeier, 21, is now scheduled for trial on Jan. 11. He has pleaded not guilty to four charges of vehicular homicide in the Aug. 9 deaths of Dale Aspedon, Steven Benscoter, Jay Bock and Dennis Chaney on Interstate 29 near

Little Sioux. The four were returning from Sturgis, S.D. The trial was initially scheduled for Dec. 7. Such continuances are routine. Schlichtemeier’s attorney, Steve Lefler of Omaha, Neb., said he needed more time to go through the evidence. Lefler has retained experts to review the crash and to examine the blood test conducted that night. Schlichtemeier ’s blood-alcohol level measured .373 percent

after the incident, according to the Iowa State Patrol. The legal limit for drivers is .08 percent. The collision happened in an I-29 construction zone, where the freeway had been reduced to two lanes. Authorities said Schlichtemeier was northbound in a pickup when he crossed into the path of the southbound motorcyclists. Schlichtemeier remains in the Harrison County Jail in Logan. His bail is $200,000.
