Legal experts say a plea deal in four crash deaths could free Schlichtemeier in his early 40s. If an Iowa judge accepts a plea agreement, the 22-year-old pickup truck driver accused in the deaths of four motorcycle riders on Interstate 29 might not be an old man when he gets out of prison. Prosecutors this
week recommended 50 years in prison for Andrew Schlichtemeier, who is accused of four counts of vehicular homicide. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 25 years. But in Iowa, criminals not sentenced to life — or whose crimes do not carry a mandatory minimum sentence — are eligible for parole as soon as they get to prison, said Clarence Key Jr., executive director of the Iowa Board of
Parole. “That hardly ever happens,” Key said. Under the plea deal — which calls for two consecutive 25-year sentences and two more 25year sentences to be served at the same time — Schlichtemeier could be paroled in 10 to 20 years, legal experts said Tuesday. Four riders died in the Aug. 9, 2010, crash: Jay Bock of Omaha, Neb.; Steven Benscoter of See PLEA Page 6
Former Woodbine banker Kenneth Waite pleads guilty to one count out of a 50count indictment MIKE BROWNLEE OWH News Service COUNCIL BLUFFS – A plea deal reached on Feb. 2 ended the federal criminal trial of former Woodbine banker Kenneth Waite. Waite faced a 50count indictment involving a series of bank transactions from October 2004 through November 2005 while at Commercial Federal Bank in Woodbine. He pleaded guilty to one count, making false statements in loan applications or renewals. In exchange for his guilty plea, the U.S. Attorney’s Office agreed to waive the 49 other counts.

Confusion still lingers on ‘Odd-Even’
Legislative coffee The Logan Kiwanis Club and Logan Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a legislative coffee at 10 a.m. Feb. 12 at the Logan Community Center. Senator Jim Seymour and Representative Matt Windschitl will give updates of legislative action and answer questions.
NIKKI DAVIS Editor Woodbine Police Chief Andy Arndt has been made aware some confusion still surrounds the City of Woodbine ’s addition to Chapter 69 regarding odd-even parking during winter months.
According to ordinance 69A, after the first snow emergency is declared for the City of Woodbine (which will be announced on most major television and radio stations and is already in force for 2011), the new “odd-even” rule will be put into place until April, or until snow
no longer poses a threat to residents. The ordinance states that on days of the month with odd numbers, such as the first, third, fifth, etc …, residents are asked to park on the side of the street with odd numbered addresses, such as 509 or 507 Walker St. and on

Editorial Another astonishing interview
CHAMBER CONNECTION LYNN CLARK, PRESIDENT WOODBINE MAIN STREET-CHAMBER
Spring to bring celebration(s)
unxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow on Feb. 2, which, according to legend, means we will be seeing spring sooner than if he had seen his shadow. I am sure everyone will agree that is good news! The sooner we see spring, the sooner we see many exciting events coming up. The Woodbine Main Street Chamber annual celebration is in the spring. This celebration is a huge event for our Main Street Chamber. Not only do we get to visit with our neighbors and friends, we get to celebrate and display the accomplishments Main Street has achieved over the past year. We get to announce upcoming projects and projects in the works. This year our celebration will be held March 25. Please mark this date on your calendar so when a board member visits with you about purchasing tickets, you will be available to attend. Our Main Street Chamber budget is dependent on a good attendance for this celebration. While the projects we have completed are funded by the business owner and Main Street grants, our daily operations, required meetings with the IDED and all our expenses are dependent on the money our board raises through the celebration, fundraisers and investment/membership in the Main Street Chamber. We are dependent on the generosity of our community to keep Woodbine in the Main Street program. Soon the board will be visiting you about our investment/membership drive. It has been three years since our last pledge drive. The funds we received from that drive have kept us going, but that drive is coming to an end. We need to raise funds to keep our program viable for another 3 years. This pledge drive is not only for business owners, we also have individual investment/memberships available. If you are interested in becoming an investor/member, please contact our Main Street Chamber office or board member. Spring, hopefully, is just around the corner. A chance to start anew. A chance to start growing again.
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.

February 9, 2011
ast week proved to be just another one of those astonishing interviews for me. It wasn’t really with any one, amazing person … it was with an amazing company. Two words … Tommy Gate. I hear some of you laughing, but in my approximate seven years here, I’ve only been to Tommy Gate once before – to have lunch with a friend. So I went in the front door where the offices are, to the kitchen and out the door again. This time was different. VERY different. I wanted to do a story on Tommy Gate’s latest expansion. I wanted to do a positive story for the company and the community. So, after a few e-mails with Bill Wendt, Keith Frances, Chris Blandford, TJ Blandford and Lila Blandford, it was set! I was going to get to meet with the owner (Lila), her two sons (TJ and Chris) AND Bill Wendt for an interview. Oh, yes. I was terrified. That’s a lot of important people in one place at one time … then there was me. But I was almost speechless when I arrived. (Trust me. That’s quite hard to accomplish.) Bill and Lila offered to take me on a tour. I am not one to pass up an opportunity like that, so I jumped on the chance. I was given protective goggles and away we went … Have you ever been there? If not, you might not realize what’s right under your own nose. I had a hard time swallowing the enormity of the building and its contents and am afraid I may have gotten lost within the building had Lila, Bill, Chris and TJ not been there! I was also (pleasantly) surprised at the plethora of familiar faces as I saw that I walked through. I just couldn’t believe how big of a staple Tommy Gate is to the community, and that I’ve worked here for that long without truly understanding the enormity of what Tommy Gate means, brings and provides to Woodbine … not to mention the awesome products they produce. Yes. The products! The equipment was amazing and gigantic! Seeing it first hand made me feel so small. I was pretty much intrigued by the laser cutter where they took full sheets of metal and could program the machine to cut precisely where they wanted. They made our Woodbine Twiner sign outside of our building with that machine, Bill told me! I never knew! How cool! I also really enjoyed the crimping machine (I don’t know if that’s its real name) where they were bending these gigantic sheets of metal. Another machine I liked was the programmable welder. My husband is a welder by trade, and I teased him mercilessly that those
NIK’S KNACKS NIKKI DAVIS EDITOR email@example.com
machines will put him out of a job … but he told me there still has to be someone there to run the machine. Oh … and they had these experimental vans where the engineers tested new products. So I guess the vans were experimental in themselves, but just vans used to test new products. I was transfixed on the gigantic painting “booths.” That includes the heat drying area. Seriously, these things were like garages inside the building … and there were three! Yes, three! Two to paint the actually lifts, and a third, loner one apart from the other two, used to paint replacement parts and pieces. Unbelievable. There’s so much more to my time there, my tour, but in short, the tour was quite the eye opener, crammed full of information I never knew. I can’t thank Lila, Bill, Chris and TJ enough for their patience with my questions and their time. Oh, but wait! There’s more! Did you know it only takes Tommy Gate approximately 24 hours to crank out one of their original lifts? Yes. You heard me. Twentyfour hours. And you should see the way they keep it all straight with an assembly line and a mailbox. I know that doesn’t make sense to you – but it does to me! AND … Tommy Gate has reached out locally. (I might write a full fledged story on this at a later date.) They have reached out to Triple C Roofing who is now applying a certain kind of coating currently available on only one of their lifts. But that might change in the future! Stay tuned … Oh, yes. Let me not fail to mention this, as well, in a Woodbine community striving to be green. They recycle! All of those unused portions of sheets of metal from that laser thingy, they send back to the company and thecompany recycles it! So, again, I just want to thank Bill, Lila, Chris, TJ, Keith and everyone else for their time and efforts. I really enjoyed myself and also would like to kick myself for not making any earlier attempts to visit or tour the Tommy Gate facility.I was impressed. I left feeling overwhelmed and excited!
Snow: More than you wanted to know
ast year seemed to be our turn, and now it is the Northeastern States. That is, with regard to unusually heavy and persistent snowfall. While we escaped the brunt of the storm earlier this week, it has been described as the largest snowstorm in terms of area in the history of the U.S.; at one point Wednesday there were blizzard warnings posted in 11 states! As I listened to various news reports, it struck me that there are many words used to describe winter precipitation. Here are a just few. • Snow crystal: An individual, usually sixsided unit of ice crystal. They form from condensing water vapor in the air and form around a central particle of dust or other material. • Snowflake: a loosely grouped puff-ball of up to around 100 individual snow crystals. • Ice crystals (also
called diamond dust): Small needles or columns or plates of ice that are not in the classic hexagonal shapes. • Rime: A coating on grass, branches and trees formed when fog with tiny, cold water droplets freezes nearly instantly on a cold. • Freezing rain: Caused when snow falls through a warm zone in the atmosphere, and then re-cools near the surface, freezing readily on cool surfaces surface (last week’s storm began with a mixture of rime and freezing rain coating windshields, sidewalks and streets) • Hoar: a type of rime, but where the crystals that form on surfaces grow into a fuzzy covering (Hoary means graywhite and furry) • Powder snow: Loose, light snow that has not been compacted appreciably. Powder snow plus wind results a ground blizzard, where a
EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org roadway may become impassable even on a bright clear day. • Snow pellets (also called graupel): White, opaque grains of ice that are round or can be conical. Snow pellets range up to 1/5 inch in diameter. • Snow grains: very small, white, opaque grains of ice smaller then snow pellets; they can drift more easily. • Corn snow: A term most often used with skiing, when a snow surface alternately melts and then refreezes leaving a rough, granular surface. Finally, how about a word that was coined in Iowa, and is used around the world today, blizzard? A blizzard is a
severe snowstorm that is defined by the wind, visibility and duration. To be a blizzard, a snowstorm must have winds over 35 miles per hour that last at least three hours, and with less than ¼ mile visibility. The word blizzard was first published in Emmet County, Iowa in April of 1871 to describe the violent winter storms of the prairie. The word may be derived in part from German, for a lightning strike “blitzen.” (And yes, “donner” is, in fact, thunder!)

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Mister President Barack Obama Subject: Poor Peoples Stimulus Package or P. P. S. P. DEAR EDITOR: Your pleading with Wall Street to act in a responsible way indeed was needed. Much has been done with little response, huge sums of money, with little accountability. This is a few ideas that would help, directing help to main street, those that need help the most, stimulus from the bottom up. Why not utilize food stamps, using them not only for food, but also use them for seed, plants, gardening tools and supplies. Improving the situation of people, increasing the supply of food, helping the economy at the lowest level, possibly
bringing down the cost of food, much can be raised in small flats, vacant lots, produce of many kinds in season. Also expanding the season with such things as potatoes, parsnips, winter squash and etc. We have seen food .riots in the world, shortages in many places, a plan of this kind would cost pennies compared to what is spent on other places, much of it gone, and nothing to show for it.

Tips for HCHPH for enjoying a Winter Wonderland We learned a lot last year during the severe winter weather we faced. Living in the Midwest, we have learned we are likely to face some type of severe winter weather at some point during the winter season. That could mean snow or subfreezing temperatures, as well as strong winds or even ice or heavy rainstorms. One of the primary concerns is winter weather’s ability to knock out heat, power,
and communication systems for days at a time to your home or office. The National Weather Service refers to winter storms as “Deceptive Killers” because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. Instead, people die in traffic accidents on icy roads and of hypothermia from prolonged exposure to the cold. It is important to be prepared for winter weather before it strikes.
Step 1: Get a Kit Get an Emergency Supply Kit that includes items like non-perishable food, weather, a batterypowered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights and batteries. Thoroughly check and update your family’s emergency supply kit before winter approaches and add the following supplies in preparation for winter weather: rock salt to melt ice on sidewalks and driveways, sand to improve traction, snow shovels, other snow removal tools and also include adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm. Step 2: Make a Plan Take the time to prepare your family. Make a Family Emergency Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of emergency. Identify places where your family will meet, both inside and outside of the immediate area. Keep in mind; it may be easier to make a long-
distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members. It is also a good idea to inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time: work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help make one. Step 3: Prepare your Home Make sure your home is well insulated and that your have weather stripping around your doors and windowsills to keep the warm air inside. Insulate pipes with insulation or newspapers and plastic and allow faucets to drip to prevent freezing. Learn how to shut off water valves in case a pipe bursts. Keep fire extinguishers on hand, and make sure everyone in your house knows how to use them. House fires pose an additional risk as more people turn to alternate heating sources without taking the necessary safety precautions. Take time to find out what you
should do to help elderly or disabled friends, neighbors or employees. If you have a car, fill the gas tank in case you have to leave. In addition, check or have a mechanic check your car’s operating system to ensure it is able to withstand winter temperatures and road conditions. Step 4: Know the Terms that are used to Identify Winter Weather Understand the differences between freezing rain and sleet, Winter Weather Advisory, Winter Weather Watch and Winter Weather Warning. While the differences may seem subtle, knowing the difference can save your life. Finally, when a winter storm warning is issued stay indoors during the storm. If you must go outside, several layers of lightweight clothing will keep you warmer than inside a single heavy coat. Gloves and a hat will prevent loss of body heat. Walk carefully on snowy, icy walkways. If your pipes freeze, remove any insulation or layers of newspapers and wrap pipes in rags.
Completely open all faucets and pour hot water over the pipes, starting where they are most exposed to the cold. Maintain ventilation when using kerosene heaters to avoid build-up of toxic fumes. Refuel kerosene heaters outside and keep them at least three feet from flammable objects. Avoid traveling by car in a storm, but if you must, carry an emergency supply kit in the trunk, keep the car’s gas tank full of gas and let someone know your destination, your route and when you expect to arrive. Learn about the emergency plans that have been established in your area. In any emergency, always listen to the instructions give by local response officials.

Sending Valentine’s Love: Overseas Guilty plea trims 50 counts to one From LOVE Page 1 hard on assigning soldiers to the appropriate classroom when it’s possible. “I try to assign soldiers to classes that have a relative at the school,” Eby said. “For example, Mrs. Kelley’s class is writing to Rob Neligh because Kaitlyn, his daughter, is in that class. Each Woodbine Elementary teacher dedicates efforts to the soldier pen-pal project, and this year, Janet Christiansen’s junior high English class, is using the project as an opportunity to teach the
students about grammar, punctuation and the art of letter writing. Their first exchange of letters for the 2010-2011 school year happened in December, when the soldiers received Christmas greetings. The Valentine’s Day cards are among the second round of mailings to the soldiers. And fortunately for the students and the soldiers, the postage is paid for. “We have very generous people that are funding the mailings,” Eby said. “Irene Kuhlman, Eby Drug Store, Rollie Clark and CUBS.”
But it’s not a one-sided project, as Diana Kuhl’s third grade class found out when Army National Guardsman Nathan Johnson, surprised the students. “We wrote him letters in the fall and he wrote back to each student, trying to answer each question they had,” Kuhl said. “We have 14 students in our class, and I know it took him a long time to write to each one of them. They were so excited and wanted to share their letters with everyone. He even answered my questions
and talked about my husband as he worked with him in guidance.” Kuhl’s class also made brightly colored Valentine’s Day cards to send to Johnson, sending their appreciation overseas. One to two more exchanges are hoped to be made with the soldiers before the end of the school year in May, as most classes send out correspondences every other month. But in the mean time, each soldier will have approximately 15 Valentine’s Day wishes delivered to them from Woodbine.
Schlichtemeier pled guilty Jan. 31 From PLEA Page 1 Pacific Junction; and Dale Aspedon and Dennis Chaney, both of Glenwood. They were returning from Sturgis, S.D., when the collision occurred in an I-29 construction zone near Little Sioux. The Iowa State Patrol said Schlichtemeier’s bloodalcohol level measured .373 percent, more than four times the legal limit. Schlichtemeier entered a written plea of guilty Jan. 31. The plea agreement will be presented to a judge Feb. 10. Schlichtemeier’s lawyer,
Steve Lefler of Omaha, said there is a “very slight” possibility the case could still go to trial because “nothing becomes final until a judge accepts it.” The amount of time Schlichtemeier ultimately spends in prison depends on many factors, including his behavior behind bars. Someone sentenced to 50 years in Iowa, with no mandatory minimum term, typically is paroled in less than half that time, said Robert Rigg, director of the criminal defense program at the Drake University Law School.
About 12 years is average, Rigg said. But the type of crime matters, too. Given that four people died as a result of Schlichtemeier’s crime, he’s more likely to serve 15 to 20 years, Rigg said. “It (the collision) has enormous impact on, could be, hundreds of people. Will the Parole Board be sensitive to that? Yep.” Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber, who emphasized that he has no special knowledge of the case, suggested that Schlichtemeier probably would serve at least 10 years.
Getting out before his full sentence is served still doesn’t mean the former University of NebraskaLincoln honor student’s life will be easy, Rigg said. People who spend more than 10 years in prison, he said, often have a hard time adjusting once they are back outside. “If people don’t think he’s going to be punished ... they’d better think again — about the reality of being in prison a significant amount of time, and then getting paroled, and what the rest of your life is like. He just blew his whole life up.”
VISTA employee making changes in Woodbine From SMITH Page 1 Woodbine in finding ways to make Woodbine more energy efficient and environmentally friendly,” Woodbine City Administrator Joe Gaa said. “I’d like to see this accomplished by getting more residential energy audits completed and find ways to implement the needed improvements. Alana will be facing questions such as how do we get more residential energy audits? How do we begin a community wide recycling program? What about educational programs throughout the school and community that focuses on what it means to be more environmentally friendly?” Alana is more than qualified for the job, through her education and her upbringing. She grew up in Chapel Hill, N.C., a town with a population of around 55,000 and what Alana believes to be among one of the top of the list of green communities. She attended the University of North Carolina, graduating in 2009 with degrees in geography and environmental studies.
While in college, Alana took advantage of opportunities to travel abroad, visiting Paris in 2007 for a summer and Thailand in 2008 for eight months. Her opportunity to travel supplied her with knowledge she probably wouldn’t have been able to get behind a desk in North Carolina. “I travelled in Thailand through the Institute of the Environment through UNC,” she said. “When we were there, the students and I did a one and half to two month study about nuclear energy in Thailand. We actually surveyed 1,000 people on their opinions. We learned a lot about climate change and nuclear energy while were there.” Aside from Paris and Thailand, Alana spent some time in Central America working on an organic farm. Through her experiences and education, she knows what she wants to accomplish in Woodbine, but is shy to share … right now. “I would like to start quite a few projects here,” she said. “But I don’t want to say what they are just
yet, because I don’t know if they’re going to work. I’m just playing it by ear and taking everything in to see where it goes.” But Alana did express one major green aspect she wanted to see through in her few months in Woodbine. “I would like to see the recycling project take off,” she admitted. “That’s one thing I’m most excited about. I’m a big recycle person and Chapel Hill is very progressive about recycling.” But recycling will just be one aspect of Alana’s job description. According to VISTA, Alana has been trained to help the unemployed qualify for green energy jobs, persuade residents and businesses to develop plans to save energy and encourage high school students to join the fight against global climate change. Alana made it clear the latter two were more her objective in Woodbine. “There were about eight to 10 Energy Corps members in the training orientation and they were all going to be doing different things,” she said. “Some
were going to the high schools to teach sustainability and another is working with ex-cons trying to find jobs and train them to work in sustainability. Then there are others that are doing what I’m doing, working with communities and organizations.” Alana’s office will be located in the old eyebrow gas station on Third and Walker Streets. She currently works out of the city office and will be moving into her new office around the middle of February. Despite where her office is located, she is excited to be in Woodbine, a choice she made herself. “I got to choose my top three jobs and I interviewed for more than one,” she said. “I just picked here. I liked it.” City officials are looking forward to learning from Alana. “Alana is from a larger environment that is economically in tune with the environment,” Gaa said. “We already do good things here, but we don’t have as big of a picture and she will be able to help us with that.”
Confusion still lingers on ‘Odd-Even’ From ODD-EVEN Page 1 and the time from noon to midnight as ‘parking as normal,’ it makes it easier,” Arndt said. “The midnight to noon time frame allows city employees to clear the streets and the time from noon to midnight allows the citizen to get things done as they may need without any more inconvenience than possible.” Arndt point out city employees will remove as much snow as possible between midnight to noon. Arndt advised, That is not to mean the City will not continue to remove snow and slush after the noon hour, the clean up work involved takes as much time as conditions dictate, adding, The time between midnight to noon is the time frame when a $5.00 citation may be issued. “And, with the citizens’ cooperation and compliance with the oddeven parking, it allows city works the open
space to get their work done and it allows them to do it quicker and more efficiently, and that’s saving us tax dollars,” Arndt said. The Woodbine Police Department understands the importance of convenience and realizes not parking on the “correct” side of the street may not be practical, citing instances such as unloading groceries, children or a number of other circumstances, hence the odd-even restriction was constructed with concideration to the citizens needs of “life as normal” and from noon to midnight, parking is un effected by the new ordinance. But the objective of the odd-even rule is to allow city employees to do their job of clearing the streets of weather related material more effectively. “The city tries to clear as close to the curb as possible and the sooner
we get the snow off the streets to those curbs, it allows anything that may melt, quicker access to the storm drain. This helps to keep water from being trapped during the days of melt off and less ice for the pedestrians and drivers to contend with the next morning, making it safer for all of us,” Arndt said. “Also, water trapped on the streets’ surface will seep into the cracks caused by the cold weather’s contracting the streets’ surface. When that water gets into the surface cracks and freezes, it expands and as the street freezes, it contracts, forcing the crack to widen, allowing more water to seep in and further expansion as the cycle continues. This inevitably damages the street, mostly seen the form of chuck holes and sometimes worse, when, as a community, we are looking at the high costs of repairing or replacing damaged streets.”
The Woodbine Police Department has begun to enforce the odd-even rule through issuing parking tickets in the amount of $5 that may be paid via mail or in person at the Woodbine City Clerk’s office or directly to an officer. “Our city’s greatest assets are its people: the services provided to our citizens by our community’s workforce, from professionals to volunteers, are outstanding,” Arndt said. “They do an exemplary job and have always dropped everything in their lives to respond to the calls of service to the citizens of Woodbine anytime day or night. I, as a citizen of Woodbine, would like to tell them, ‘Thank you for your service.’” Arndt urges Woodbine citizens with concerns or questions, to contact him at 647-2550 or by e-mail at email@example.com m or by stopping by his office.
From WAITE Page 1 The U.S. Southern District of Iowa Court trial had resumed Wednesday in Council Bluffs, then attorneys reached the plea deal during a lunch break. The case involved Waite’s banking relationship with Ed Sullivan, a Woodbine resident who runs a cattle-feeding operation. Sullivan, along with his son, Ryan, and Ryan’s wife, Tina, maintained an account, administered by Waite, at Commercial Federal Bank. The charge Waite pleaded guilty to involved a request made in March 2005 by Waite to renew and increase the Sullivans’ existing revolving line of credit from $7 million to $9.25 million. Waite wasn’t cleared to approve an increase of that amount, and he had to ask a Commercial Federal Bank approval committee. Authorities said Waite “knowingly made false statements for the purpose of influencing the action of” the bank. Waite presented the case to the committee that the Sullivans needed the extra credit because of increasing capacity on their cattle operation, when the extra money was, in fact, needed to cover $1.8 million owed to other bank customer accounts from which Waite had transferred money. The case centered on what authorities said were unauthorized advances on loans and lines of credit that Waite made in the names of other bank customers and deposited into the Sullivans’ account. According to the indictment, $4.2 million was moved from those customers’ accounts into the Sullivans’ account and then later repaid. Waite’s attorney, Joseph Hrvol of Council Bluffs, said during the trial the other customers were fellow cattle feeders and family and friends of the Sullivans’ who had agreed to “help Ed get by during a rough patch” then later denied giving authorization. Waite was released from custody until sentencing. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison, a $1 million fine or both. U.S. District Court Judge John Jarvey noted Waite might be ordered to pay restitution to Bank of the West, which purchased Commercial Federal Bank in December 2005. Hrvol declined to comment on the plea agreement. Kevin VanderSchel, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, said, “Going with a plea agreement does provide certainty to the case. In case there is a hung jury, it helps avoid the cost of a retrial.” He also noted under federal sentencing guidelines, dismissed counts can still be considered “relevant conduct” in deciding sentencing.
Crime Stoppers back From HC CSPage 1 the group left $11,000 sitting in a bank in Missouri Valley – frozen. Rewards were being offered on two cases at the time – one for tips leading to the arrest and conviction of the origin of the Woodbine arsons and the other, a burglary at the Speedee Mart in Missouri Valley. Both crimes had happened in the spring of 2007. Between their inception in June of 1985 through their last meeting in November of 2007, the group had paid out $8,650 to tipsters in Harrison County. With the chance the state Crime Stoppers organization coming in to sweep the Harrison County funds, the group began to reorganize in October of 2009. A few old board members joined forces with some new faces and the group is beginning to get off the ground. They have even already awarded $300 for a tip since then. Harrison County Crime Stoppers is a partnership of concerned citizens and local law enforcement agencies. The board of citizen volunteers establishes policies and helps decide upon the amount and method of rewards to be paid out – in compliance with state Crime Stoppers guidelines. “The way it works is a CI (confidential informant) has the local law enforcement agency come to us and says, ‘This is what I’ve got, I need help,” new Harrison County Crime Stoppers Vice President Kenard Swift said. “Then the board members sit down and set a certain dollar amount based on state criteria that leads to the arrest for that crime. We put out flyers or run ads in the news paper that this is what we need and this is what we’re offering.” And the Crime Stoppers and the local law enforcement take special care to be sure the CI remains completely anonymous. “The CI calls the tip line and gives them any information they have. The tipsters are given a number and they are paid based on that number,” Swift said. “We write the check out to that number or to the local agency where the tip came through. Then the agency can make sure the person gets the funds. It’s completely anonymous. The public needs to understand the information doesn’t go any farther than that. There’s never any names involved and no paper trail back to the informant.” And the money the tipsters are paid from have nothing to do with local, state or federal tax dollars. Funding is received through Harrison County, its towns and private donations including, but not limited to, individuals, businesses, clubs and associations. All donations are tax deductable. Though the Harrison County Crime Stoppers is back in the action, they are still seeking community support and volunteers. “We’re always looking for ‘fresh blood,’” Swift said. “There are no membership fees or dues. All it takes is attending a meeting about once a month. And most of the time, those meetings are less than an hour long.” The group meets the third Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. in the basement of the Logan Public Library. “This is a good program,” Swift said. “An example is before we even had our legs under us when we were reorganizing a local officer received a tip that led to the arrest of individuals manufacturing meth. At this time, we didn’t have time to get a meeting together, so we perform calls based on a calling tree. The reward was needed. It’s a wonderful program.” Now there are approximately six board members, a mix of “old” and “new” and they are looking for more support. Carolyn Probasco currently sits as president, vice president is Kenard Swift, secretary is Amy Swift and treasurers are Ed and Pat Logan. If interested in participating, the next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Jan. 19 in the basement of the Logan Public Library. Interested citizens may also contact: Kennard Swift at 647-2623; Ed and Pat Logan at 712-644-2159; or Carolyn Probasco at 712-592-7911. If you have information regarding an unsolved crime, you are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-247-0592. Anonymity is guaranteed.

Valentine’s Day Facts and Figures Every year, couples get together on Valentine's Day to express their affection for one another. This Feb. 14, consider the following interesting facts and figures when celebrating Valentine's Day. • According to research from Hallmark, more than half of all Valentine's Day cards are purchased within six days prior to the holiday. That's especially interesting as Hallmark research also indicates more than half of the United States population celebrates the day by purchasing a greeting card. • There are more single men than single women. For every 100 single women in their 20's, there are 119 single men in the same age group. • Dating service establishments continue to be popular means for meeting a prospective soulmate. Nearly 1,000 dating services, which include online dating Web sites, exist and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue annually. • Hallmark research indicates that more than 140 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged each year. • 43,322 people were employed by establishments that produced chocolate and cocoa products in 2004. California was home to 136 of those establishments, leading the nation. • The average American consumed 25.7 pounds of candy on 2005, which actually represents a significant decline from 1997, when Americans consumed roughly 27 pounds of candy on average. • There are roughly 2.2 million marriages per year in the United States. • In 2005, there were slightly less than 5 million opposite-sex cohabitating couples in the United States, reflecting a growing trend of couples living together before walking down the aisle. • Men and women in the northeastern United States tend to get married for the first time later than their male counterparts throughout the rest of the country. For example, men in Massachusetts were a median age of 29.1 years of age at first marriage, while women were 27.4 years old.

The Belin-Blank Center identifies gifted, talented and artistic learners and offers specialized educational opportunities for students. The Center provides assessment, counseling and consultation services and enhances educational opportunities through technology for students. Addressing the students, teachers and guests was Senator Chuck Grassley who acknowledged the accomplishments of those being honored. Georgina Dodge, chief diversity officer and associate vice president at the University of Iowa, also addressed the honorees.

Business and Finance Code changes could complicate tax preparation Building your wealth the smart, safe way CHAD NATION News Service A slew of changes in the tax code could complicate tax preparations this year; but don’t fret, the government has given taxpayers three extra days to file. The IRS said that taxpayers will have until April 18 to file their income tax returns. Emancipation Day, a holiday observed in the District of Columbia, falls on Friday, April 15, which normally is Tax Day. By law, the IRS said, District of Columbia holidays affect tax deadlines in the same way that federal holidays do. That gives all taxpayers three extra days to file. While there are three extra days for those running late, some early filers, especially those who itemize deductions, will have to wait a couple of weeks to submit information. But Francis Clark, a certified public accountant at Dickinson & Clark CPAs, said he would still recommend people come in early with their tax information. Tax changes that Congress approved in December required the IRS to reprogram its tax processing systems, said Christopher Miller, an IRS spokesman. It could take until mid- to late February to get that done, he said. Taxpayers will need to
wait to file if they fall in any of these three categories: • They are taxpayers who claim itemized deductions on Form 1040 Schedule A. Such deductions include mortgage interest; charitable deductions; medical and dental expenses; and state and local taxes. • They claim the Higher Education Tuition and Fees Deduction. That’s the deduction for parents and students covering up to $4,000 of tuition and fees. • They claim the Educator Expense Deduction. That’s a deduction for K-12 educators with out-of-pocket classroom expenses of up to $250. Delays will be minimal for taxpayers who already itemize deductions, the IRS said, because those taxpayers normally have to wait to receive certain financial documents anyway. Clark said it is estimated that 50 million taxpayers itemized tax returns out of 140 million that filed returns last year. Of those 50 million, only 9 million filed during January and February. “So, it might affect 9 million taxpayers,” he said. Clark said other tax law changes could affect Iowans as well. He said accountants and tax preparers have been advised by the Iowa Department of Revenue to assume Iowa will not conform to all federal tax law changes.
Some of the provisions that were not adopted are: • Tuition and fees deduction for higher education. • Deduction for educator expenses. • Election to deduct state sales/use tax as an itemized deduction in lieu of state income tax. • Tax-free treatment of IRA distributions donated to charity. Clark said IRA gift contributions to charity up $100,000 do not have to be reported on a federal tax return as income, however, Iowa does not allow it. “These changes can complicate things on an Iowa return,” he said. Clark said there are also big changes in the law in the area of asset depreciation. A business, including farmers, can expense $500,000 of eligible equipment purchased and placed in service in 2010, on a federal return. Clark said in Iowa, the business is only allowed up to $134,000. “That’s a big difference,” he said. “Federal returns may also be eligible for a 50 to 100 percent bonus depreciation on qualifying property, while Iowa doesn’t allow any bonus depreciation.” With all the changes, new deadlines and potential delays, Clark still said individuals should consult their tax preparers sooner rather than later. “The IRS is advising taxpayers to go ahead and get their tax information together and begin doing individuals returns,” he said,“whether you do your taxes yourself or by a preparer, so they are ready to e-file once the IRS is ready.”
TIM ROHWER News Service There are ways to reduce debt and create a financial safety net for the future, and you can do it at the same time, according to a local insurance agent. John Butterbaugh is among many who believe in the financial steps preached by Dave Ramsey, an American financial author, radio host, television personality and motivational speaker. “We believe a lot of what he says,” Butterbaugh said. Ramsey, according to Butterbaugh, suggests several steps to a healthier financial life, beginning with the creation of an emergency fund of, for example, $1,000. This way, there’ll be money available for special needs like a new furnace without adding more onto credit cards, Butterbaugh said. The next step is to pay off credit card balances, emphasizing those with the least amount to pay off, he said. Obviously, people need to continue to pay on all the cards on a monthly basis. Ramsey, according to Butterbaugh, suggests paying the minimum amount on those larger bills and paying $100 or $150 extra on the smaller ones until they are paid off. Then, the process starts again on the next lowest amount. The key here, Butterbaugh said, is the mental satisfaction of knowing
Financial Facts and Figures The general public often gets conflicting information about the state of the economy. Some news reports say that people are doing well, while others say the collective public is barely scraping by. Though it might seem impossible to get a straight answer on the economy, there are certain trends that may be indicative of how the country is faring in these trying times.

that one particular debt has been paid off and the growing motivation to continue the process. When people are faced with so much debt, there can be that immediate feeling of being overwhelmed, he said. “Most people don’t know where to start,” Butterbaugh said. “Most ask, ‘What do I do?’” After the credit card debt is paid off, the next step is to create a savings account with enough money to last six months. The purpose of this is to provide a temporary safety net should people lose their jobs. “Then, you invest in retirement,” Butterbaugh said. After that, put money away for college for the children if that is a goal. Butterbaugh Insurance and Investment Services offers auto and home insurance, business insurance, plus health and life insurance. Many people may not be aware, but credit scores can influence premium costs, Butterbaugh said. “All insurance companies use credit scoring for premiums.

Legals EJPA grants now available
Give the gift of life for Valentine’s Day
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is accepting grant applications for $1.2 million in funding to support projects designed to research, educate, empower and enable communities to understand and address local health and environmental issues. Eligible applicants from non-profit, faithbased and tribal organizations working in the community of the proposed project are encouraged to apply.

Or double your lifesaving impact by spending quality time together and donating with your partner. “Instead of buying a box of chocolates or flowers that will be gone by the end of the week, give a gift that lasts,” coordinator of Missouri Valley Community Blood Drive Vanessa Dugdale said. “By donating blood, you can give a patient in need and their loved ones more time together.” As Americans become
$25,000 each to support projects that address a community’s local environmental issues through collaborative partnerships, and; • Four grants of up to $50,000 each to gather better science on the environmental and health impacts of exposure to multiple sources of pollution in communities. Environmental justice means the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, regardless of race or income, in the environmental decisionmaking process. Environmental justice issues often involve multiple sources of contamination, like pollution from several industrial facilities within one neighborhood, environmental hazards at the workplace or home, or contamination resulting
from the consumption of fish or other foods. Environmental contamination can lead to costly health risks and can discourage investments and development in lowincome, minority, and indigenous communities disproportionately impacted by pollution. Understanding the impacts of multiple environmental risks can help communities develop more effective solutions to their environmental and health concerns. Applications must be postmarked by March 31.

The Woodbine Twiner
February 9, 2011
Sports Two Woodbine wrestlers advance to districts The Woodbine Tiger wrestling squad finished in third place out of seven teams at the Class 1A Sectional tournament Feb. 5 with 150.5 points. The team finished behind Logan-Magnolia with 284 and Underwood with 188.5. The Tigers beat out St. Albert with 145, Westwood Sloan with 131, Maple ValleyAnton-Oto with 106.5 and West Monona with 76.5. “I knew it was going to be tight with Underwood, St. Albert, Maple Valley and us and we came out over two of them and finished third I thought that was good,” head coach Matthew Mentink said. “Underwood just had some higher places and was more solid. I know expectations were high for us, but people have to remember we have a lot of freshman and sophomores on our team.” Two Woodbine wrestlers worked their way through the sectional brackets to earn a spot in the Feb. 12 district wrestling tournament, and four landed as alternates. Dalton Peterson (189)
emerged as the Tigers’ sole champion. He took out his first two opponents by pins in 59 seconds and 40 seconds before winning the championship match against Lo-Ma’s Chris Bridgeford in a 9-4 decision. Gavvon Shafer (152) finished as runner up at the tourney. The Woodbine junior pinned West Monona’s Tim Bligh in a 37 second pin and Lo-Ma’s Dillon Miller in a 3-1 decision before facing 39-3 Drake Fanslau from Underwood for the title of sectional champ. The match was tight, but Shafer lost by a narrow 42 decision. Mentink is fairly confident about their chances at districts. “In the first round of districts, Dalton will face the Kramer boy from TriCenter and he hasn’t seen him yet this season. Gavvon will face the Manhart wrestler from Tri-Center who he has beaten twice this season, last time, I think, at 7-0. But if they both wrestle smart and aggressive and as well as they are capable, it looks promising
that we’ll get through,” Mentink said. Lucas Hedstrom (112), Mason Mentink (140), Kyle Kuhlman (215) and Spencer Ball (heavyweight) all finished as alternates. Hedstrom’s first match led him to a 7-4 loss to Underwood’s Taylor Curtis. He faces Westwood Sloan’s Zach Goodvin who he pinned in 56 seconds before being repaired with Curtis, so no wrestle back was needed. Mason Mentink won his first match in a 15-8 decision and second in a 6-4 decision before the sophomore entered the championship ring with Lo-Ma senior Nolan Oviatt. Oviatt took the pin at the end of the first period. A wrestle back for second paired him with Dustin Scott of Westwood Sloan where Mentink fell in the first period, pushing him to an alternate position. The Mentink-Scott match was deemed as one of the most exciting by coach Mentink. Kuhlman took a 5:03 pin before falling in the first to Lo-Ma’s Evan Mikels. Kuhlman won
his next one in a first period pin, but was placed with Mikels again for the title of runner up, so no wrestle back was needed. Ball’s final match of sectionals was another deemed as exciting by Mentink. Ball began the tourney right with a first period pin, but fell to St. Albert’s Marco Naughton in the first. Ball wrestled back through a 7-6 decision and was placed against Lo-Ma’s Logan Melby for the title of runner up. Ball lost in an 8-1 decision, pushing him to the alternate position. Adding to Woodbine’s third place team finish of 150.5 points was: Joe Grady (130), fourth; Josh Matusik (160), fourth; Tanner Hedstrom (119), fifth; Malachi Mentink (125), fifth; Matt Monahan (145), fifth; Alex Whiteing (103), sixth; Nick Klein (135), sixth; and Sean Klein (171), sixth. “As a coach, when I’m looking into the stands and I see people shaking their heads when we lost a match, I want them to remember we have a lot of freshman and sopho-

We didn’t wrestle passively or defensively and some of the kids we’ve wrestled before and beaten. It’s hard to beat the same opponent multiple times.”

the Tigers finally had a chance to play on their own home court against the Whiting Warriors. A win would put the Tigers at 2-1 in the tournament with one game left to play. The Tiger’s offense
Performing live at Pauley’s Pub! Birthday Party for Gerry! Saturday,Feb. 12 9 pm - 1 am
would struggle a little but the defense stepped it up to give the Tigers a chance to win. The first half, led by Davis Hackman’s 8 points, would be a back and forth battle with the Tigers coming out on top with a 25-23 led. The third quarter belonged to the Warriors, outscoring the Tigers 15-7. The Warriors would maintain that lead for much of the fourth quarter before the Tigers, and Ethan Lenz’s 9 fourth quarter points, would come storming back to win in dramatic fashion. The Tigers, with about 15 seconds left, finally regained the lead by two points. After giving up a quick lay-up, Lenz redeemed himself with a clutch jumper to retake the lead with 8 seconds left to secure the win. Lenz and Hackman accounted for 60 percent of the Tiger points. Lenz scored 18 followed by Hackman with 11, Jacolby Ehlert with 7, Jameson Delaney with 5, Alex Klein with 4 and Sam Powers with 3 points. Leading the team in rebounds was Powers with 10 followed by Hackman with 7. The team was 16-45 shooting and committed 18 turnovers. “I thought that our guys played pretty well after being off a week and only having one practice due to snow last week,” head coach Heath Stille said. “They weathered Whiting’s run and went on one of our own to close out the game and get the win.” Ridge View, 66: Woodbine, 34 Traveling to Holstein on a wintery Saturday night to take on Class 2A Ridge View, proved to be a tough task for the Tigers. After an exciting win the night before, the
offense and defense decided to stay back in Woodbine. It didn’t help that the Raptors had a 6’6’ post player. The Tiger’s defense, whether zone or man to man, just didn’t have an answer to stop him. The first quarter started off with an immediate alley-oop jam by the Raptors big man. The Raptors would surge to an 11-0 start until Davis Hackman would make a lay-up to get the Tigers on the board. The Raptors would dominate every quarter with effective inside and outside scoring eventually winning 66-34. At press time there were no official stats available. Unofficially, Ethan Lenz led all Tiger scorers with 13 points followed by Jameson Delaney with 5, Hackman with 4, Sam Powers and Levi Brown with 3 each and Jacolby Ehlert, Alex Klein and Jay Radloff with 2 each. The boy’s record is now 6-12. Ehlert and Lenz lead in rebounds with five each. “We came out slow and were not able to ever get going against this bigger team. I thought that they came out and applied a lot of pressure and our guys did not have an answer for that,” head coach Heath Stille said. “We now have two games this week that we can hopefully win and go into districts riding a winning streak.” The Tigers will end their regular season play with two games next week. On Feb. 8 the Tigers will play A-H-S-T and on Feb. 11 the Tigers will travel to Missouri Valley. Both games will start with junior varsity boys followed by a varsity game. The next week the Tigers will begin district play on the road to take on Walnut. The game will be on Feb. 17 in Walnut at 7 p.m.
JEFF POWERS For The Twiner Charter Oak-Ute, 41: Woodbine, 29 Boyer Valley, 41: Woodbine, 29 Ridge View, 84: Woodbine, 37 The Lady Tigers spent the week on the road and the lack of offense proved too much to overcome in the three losses. Except for Ridge View, the defense played well enough to win. Giving up 41 points to Charter Oak and Boyer Valley would give any team a chance to win. Class 2A Ridge View’s offense was too much for the Lady Tigers as they could score inside and outside, shooting 50 percent on the night. In 12 quarters the Tigers managed double figures only three times. Against Ridge View they were shut out in the first quarter but did bounce back to score 17 and 14 in the second and third quarters. Against Charter Oak, Justina Royer led all Tiger scorers with 15 points followed by
Shelby Hall with 7. Royer also led the team in rebounds with 9 just missing a double double. Kaitlyn Pulscher also had an impressive 8 rebounds. The Tigers were 12-58 shooting with 21 turnovers. Paige Hackman led all Tiger scorers with 7 points against Boyer Valley followed Hall and Rebekka Boer with 6 points each. Boer led the team with 9 rebounds followed by Hackman with 7. The Tigers shot 12-46 and committed 22 turnovers. For second game of the week Hackman led the Tiger scorers with 11 points followed by Hall with 6 points. Hackman, like Royer, just missed a double-double bringing down 9 rebounds. The ladies shot 15-46 from the field and committed 40 turnovers against a swarming Ridge View defense. The girls regular season is over. They will begin regional play on Feb. 10 against Boyer Valley. That game will be played in Woodbine at 7 p.m.
