The numbers seem to be in favor of the Woodbine Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department. The organization recently secured another grant towards their new projects – an addition onto their current building and a 2,000 gallon tanker truck. Previously, the department had received news of a $10,000 grant from the Harrison County Community Foundation and $200,000 from the Rural Development’s Community Facilities grant program to be used for their new projects. On Sept. 15, the department was informed of a fourth grant in the amount of $102,000 to be used towards the fire station. “The I-JOBS awards announced will help cities and counties throughout the state move much needed projects forward to protect their citizens from the impact of natural disasters,” Governor Chet Culver said. “I created the I-JOBS initiative to build a better, stronger Iowa in response to the devastation of natural disasters. The awards announced will do exactly that, by directly improving our state’s disaster prevention infrastructure and wisely using I-JOBS funds to make Iowa a safer place. The cost of preventing a disaster is much less than the cost of recovering from one.” Originally, the department’s plan was to have the L-shaped addition to their building enclosed prior to looking into purchasing the tanker. But plans have changed due to an alleviation of funding issues. “Before the building had priority over truck because we used to have to purchase See GRANTS Page 5
Deppe benefit slated for Oct. 2 NIKKI DAVIS Editor Teresa Deppe looks frail sitting in the rocking chair where she spends most of her days. At 43 years old, her breaths are limited, but she stands grounded in hope. A year ago, she was energetic and maintaining a normal life. In October of 2009, she started losing her balance; then she lost control of the right side of her body. “At first, we thought it was stroke, then it started going up my right side,” Teresa said, confined to her chair, arms crossed

Teresa had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – better known as ALS or Lou Gherig’s disease. The information that followed the diagnosis was beyond heartbreaking. Death often occurs within three to five years of diagnosis, with only about 20 percent surviving longer. And the effects are devastating – affecting not only Teresa, but her family. “She used to be able to do all

I don’t know how women do it. Dishes, laundry … I just can’t catch up.” Teresa began to cry listening to them. Keith and Tyler rushed to her side. Her symptoms set in rapidly.

CHAMBER CONNECTION MAIN STREET ORGANIZATION COMMITTEE TONY SMITH, CHAIR
Joining in the fun
e are now in the third year of Woodbine’s designation as a Main Street Community and efforts by your Main Street Chamber Board. Its four committees, Design, Business Improvement, Promotion and Organization each play important roles in executing our comprehensive community improvement plan. As one of the four, the Organization Committee responsibilities include fundraising. We have been very fortunate to receive many grants for the lion share of Woodbine’s improvement projects, but it still takes lots of people, working behind the scenes, to ensure our projects are fully funded. The Organization Committee tries to work within the communities many activities to conduct fundraising. The Sunday dinners this past winter helped not only the Main Street Chambers fundraising efforts, but also provided something to the community not previously available; a good local place to eat on Sunday. Profits were shared with local churches and civic groups who assisted in making each week a success. Our annual meeting, a requirement of the Main Street Program, also serves as a fundraising event. The meeting provides the community with an annual report of progress to date, and the future. The very successful dessert auction has continued to grow and raise funds for projects. The year marks the second year for the beer tent at Applefest; many of you may not even be aware of it. But this year with some better promotion it will continue to compliment our fundraising efforts. And after three years of success, this fall we will begin the renewal of memberships in the Main Street Chamber with an added twist. This year the Main Street Chamber will add a new category, the individual or family membership. This new category of membership will recognize our Main Street is not only built by businesses, but by those who support them. In the next few months if you have not yet been contacted by a representative of the chamber to become a member, call the Main Street office and show your support for Woodbine by joining.

The things that made me go, “Hmmm...” B NIK’S KNACKS efore you have a panic attack – let me explain a few things. I was asked to attend an editor’s conference last week. It was entertaining and educational. (And the food was fabulous.) When I attend conferences and seminars – I start getting ideas. I mean, that is, after all, how we learn. There was a design discussion and some points were brought up that I took to heart. Most of you won’t notice the subtle changes I was going for … for instance, instead of using a standard, six-column front page, I used a 19 column grid. I’m sure that makes a whole lot of sense to you, right? Understood every word? Well, in the short version, it gives me more wiggle room on how wide I can run photos and stories – and makes it easier for me to line things up on the page and make them “pretty.” Apparently I have not been using graphics and photos to their fullest potential, either. And, I just learned … did you know you can actually move the masthead? That’s the part that says, “Woodbine Twiner ….” and states what volume and the date and such. I didn’t go THAT wild this time … but keep your eyes open. I got a lot of ideas, but I’m trying to introduce them gradually. Then, there came the heavy hitter. We had an entire discussion on small town paper’s “community calendars.” For us, that would be our Short Takes column that has run on
NIKKI DAVIS EDITOR
the front page, left side, for as long as I can remember. I heard arguments for both sides, but one really stuck out in my mind. “If you put the same thing in the paper in the same spot every week, people almost forget it’s there.” That was applicable to ads, columns, etc … So I thought I’d be brave this week and try it. Did you notice? Did you see the changes? I bet, if anything, you noticed Short Takes was moved, huh? Let me know what you think of these little changes … I’m curious to see if what they taught me is true. And you, my loyal readers, are the only ones that can really answer that question. My e-mail is email@example.com or call me at the office 647-2821.
Vegetables in the winter
ell, different week, and even different season, but I am back to talk more about things you might try with excess garden vegetables. There are a few options for prolonged winter storage of fruits and vegetables. But first, here are several general storage rules: • Never store vegetables and fruits in the same area. Plant materials age or ripen when they are exposed to a chemical called ethylene. Ethylene is naturally produced by nearly all fruits as they ripen. If that ethylene gas charges the storage atmosphere, any root crops that are in storage will age; becoming soft and rapidly losing quality. • The general rule is to lower temperatures for storage as close as reasonable to freezing temperatures, but don’t let them freeze. If you have controlled-temperature areas like a refrigerator or cooler, you can hold fruits and vegetables a degree or two from 32 successfully. But with facilities constructed for storage like a storage cellar or tile storage your goal should be holding temperatures from about 34 to 40 degrees for success. Also, although excess moisture is a bad thing, you do want to maintain humidity high to delay dehydration and maintain quality. • Place barriers at rodent
entry points to limit or avoid mouse damage. • A cool basement corner can be retrofitted into a small root cellar for ripening tomatoes and for short-term storage of potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, pumpkins and winter squash. Insulate inner walls and the ceiling to reduce both the heat coming into the area and the chilling of the living area above. Avoid areas with heating ducts running through them. A window that allows you to control the entry of ventilation air into the area is quite helpful. • Outside storage is also a possible storage option. When settlers first came to the prairies, produce was kept in outdoor caches that could be opened even in the middle of the winter, and these still can work today. You can construct a temporary storage by digging a pit several feet in diameter in a well-drained site. A 1-to-2 foot deep pit can keep produce into early winter, but for longer storage the pit needs to be 3-to-4 feet deep. Put the pit in a sunny location so the sun helps warm the area slightly, avoiding freezing. Put a layer of straw at the base and stack the vegetables in a pyramid. Alternatively, the produce can be packaged in mesh “onion” bags for easier removal. Put about a foot of
EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org clean straw over the produce, and then add 8 to 12 inches of soil over everything. An additional layer of straw on top will help prolong the storage. Cover the top with a piece of screen to exclude rodents. A cross of two boards nailed together helps mark the spot. • A modification of the pit process is to use a section of hollow tile. Get a 2—3 foot long section of concrete or clay tile that is from 1½ to 2½ feet in diameter. Choose a well-drained site and dig the hole just big enough to fit the tile in snugly. The hole should be dug 6 inches deeper than the tile. At the base, use 3 or 4 standard clay bricks as a foundation and set the tile in the hole. Pour 2-3 inches of coarse gravel or sand for drainage, and leave the lid off for a week of fall evenings (replace the lid during the day). Wet the gravel or sand and cover for a few days to raise humidity. Cool vegetables to be stored in a shady covered area outdoors or in a refrigerator for a day or so to chill
them. Vegetables can be placed in mesh bags, baskets, etc. to allow for easier removal during the winter. Cover the tile with hardware cloth, and spread several inches of straw, cornstalks, etc. and place a waterproof final cover and weigh it down. For cold periods, either scoop snow or place fiberglass insulation over the tile to provide additional protection. Vegetables can be stored until May and the tile can be opened and resealed repeatedly. Most of this information is based on a publication available at the extension office called Harvesting and Storing Vegetables, ISU publication PM-731. You can download it at: www.extension.iastate.edu/ store/pm731.pdf, or contact us at the Harrison County Extension office, or an ISU Extension office near you.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Calling King a hypocrite DEAR EDITOR: These are harsh times and I’m going to use harsh language in this letter. When we received representative Steve King’s big glossy, expensive political mailing with multiple colors, pictures and print types my first thought was, wow, he sure must have some wealthy donors to be able to mail out something this posh. In that pamphlet he expounded his generalized disdain for big government and government waste so imagine my astonishment as I looked up at the upper lefthand corner and there in tiny, tiny print it said “This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense.” In over 40 years of watching politics this is the worst abuse of the franking privilege I have ever seen. Of course! Representative King opposes public financing of election campaigns, us taxpayers are already paying for his. Hypocrite! In the political mailing that I paid for Representative King talks about eliminating the national debt. Yet when legislation was proposed to allow for the IRS to go after wealthy people hiding their income in secret overseas bank accounts and shell companies he voted against it. Hypocrite! The Veterans Administration negotiates drug prices with the suppliers saving taxpayers huge amounts of money. When Representative King and his Republican colleagues sat down with the drug lobby-
ists writing Medicare Part D legislation they actually made it illegal for Medicare to negotiate with their suppliers. As a result billions of our tax dollars go directly from the treasury into the pockets of Representative King’s backers in the drug industry. Hypocrite! Mr. King likes to portray himself as a family values guy. Yet when he was a member of the Iowa Legislature what did he do when Governor Branstad and his Republican cronies plastered our state with gambling casinos? I don’t think any legislation in Iowa history has caused more bankruptcies, more broken homes or more neglected children than this single policy. Hypocrite! On Nov. 2 let’s dump this guy. THANK YOU, DAVID BRINGMAN LOGAN, IOWA
Understanding management of livestock and manure DEAR EDITOR, I would like to make a few points and explain what is all involved with the agricultural, environmental and legal issues of managing livestock manure in Iowa today. Agriculturally there are mostly benefits to come from manure applications. Manure applicators use some of highest technology machinery which sometimes cost hundreds thousand of dollars to get the highest nutrient benefit
from there manures. Using animal manures for fertilizers has been something that has been done for hundreds of years and most agronomists and farmers will still tell you today it is the best product to use as a fertilizer source. Environmentally farmers are becoming more aware of how their business affects the environment. For years many did not understand how nutrients affected water quality. Like I mentioned in the paragraph above about how manure affects agricultural production many farmers are using more technology to utilize there manure more efficiently and by doing so water quality is slowing improving. Soon manures could be the most sought after nutrient source in the state and why would people want to waste something that is valuable.
Legally manures are becoming an up hill battle for many livestock producers. Every field has it own environmental assessments taken to be sure the potential to damage water quality will be low. These assessments usually are taken by trained individuals and they all take time and money to complete, it’s not like livestock producers can just increase the price of their products to cover the added costs of production like other businesses do. This letter was not intended to argue the fact that agriculture should not be regulated nor that agricultural is regulated to stringently, this letter was just to inform the public about how things are changing agronomic ally, environmentally, and legally for livestock producers.

Deppe benefit Oct. 2 From DEPPE Page 1 gradually becoming worse, muscle cramps and more. And while there is no known cure, medications are able to help control and even alleviate the symptoms. But there was another road block. The medication was $860 a month. And there wasn’t much to fall back on. Keith had been laid off since October of 2009 after approximately 25 years of dedicated employment to the same company. That’s how they found their way to Harrison County. He was transferred 13 years ago to work in Blair, Neb. But now, Teresa, obviously, doesn’t have a job, either. “Keith can’t go to work now anyway because then there’s no one here,” Teresa said. “And they’ve turned me down for disability.” But the Deppe family is still grounded in hope considering some recent help and community support.
The Woodbine Twiner
A neighbor – someone they had met and been cordial to, but had never bonded with – temporarily helped solve the medication expense issue. “We really owe Lenka (Knowski) a special thanks,” Keith said, Teresa nodding and smiling. “She’s been doing all the paperwork and lining up all the phone calls and appointments. We play cards,” Teresa said. “And she was able to get us one year of the medication … for free,” Keith said. “There’s no way we could do this without her.” It’s not just her – there have been numerous community members stepping up. “People bring by food all the time for us,” Tyler said. And, according to Teresa and Keith, some contributions are anonymous. “One time we came home from Missouri after visiting Teresa’s parents,
and there was a golf cart in our front yard,” Keith said. “We are so grateful for all that has been done for us.” And the community has planned more. The 4 Rivers Riding Club with The Lost Hogs is rallying one last time for the season with the Teresa Deppe Ride slated for Oct. 2. Sign up for the ride is being held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Juli’s Cave Inn in Magnolia. Rider fees – including cars, motorcycles and anything legal for the roads – will be $15 for a single rider, $25 for a couple and $5 for each additional passenger. Last card will be drawn at 6 p.m. Best hand payouts include 30 percent for first place and 20 percent for second. Teresa Deppe and her family will receive the remaining 50 percent to help with medical bills, modifications to their home and more. A street dance featuring the Byron James
Gang Band from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. will take place at the Cave Inn following the ride. Entrance fee is waived if participating in the ride - $10 if not. For more information, contact Denis Stueve at 402-516-2332, Lou Costanzo at 402-250-8814 or Rhonda at 712-6482540. “We’re just waiting for a miracle. Right now, it’s so overwhelming if you just look at how we were living life and how we’re living now – it’s one step forward and two steps back,” Keith said. “Either you have nothing – or you just make do with what you got and deal with it.” In the mean time, Teresa quietly asks, “Can you please get him off of me?” as she looks down at the family’s “Healing Cat,” Cybil, who has been curled on her lap and on top of her hands. Her arms weren’t strong enough to push the 15pound cat onto the floor on their own.
Municipal delivers a bright idea The Woodbine Municipal Light and Power are doing what they can to raise awareness on the importance of energy efficiency. In order to raise awareness they hosted an open house Sept. 15, invited Anne Kimber from the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities and Joni Livingston from Missouri River Energy Services. “The purpose was to help keep our customers informed of the energy efficient means that they have at their disposal and to provide continuing education in that area,” Woodbine Municipal Light and Power Superintendant Chris Waite said. Approximately 75 people attend the event which provided hands on opportunities to learn about energy efficiency – such as a stationary bicycle used as a generator to light up various types of Ashley Burbridge tried to light up all the bulbs on the stationary bike generalight bulbs.

Fire & Rescue grant totals continue to rise
From GRANTS Page 1 trucks to fit in the building,” Fire Chief Chris Waite said. “But now that we have grants secured in both areas, we are moving ahead with both.” Total grant monies tallied $312,000 for the department that is looking at an approximate $353,000 price tag between the tanker and the addition. Additional funds were raised during the Woodbine Fire and Rescue Departments annual raffle and street dance on July 10. Waite stated the hope of having the new building enclosed before the snow falls this year. “We’ll have bids out for the building by the end of the month and will be actively researching trucks,” he said. “Without these grants and the support of the community, this wouldn’t be happening. These grants and community support is the only way we could do this. Now that it looks like it’s coming together, it’s time to move forward on the building project and locating a new truck.”
Harrison County to use Precinct Atlas for general election Harrison County was among more than 20 counties in the state to use the Precinct Atlas for the school elections in September 2009 and will use the program again for the general election Nov. 2. “Precinct officials have all been trained and will be offered a refresher course prior to the election,” said Susan Bonham, Harrison County Auditor. The program is an electronic poll book that helps precinct election officials effectively and consistently process voters on Election Day. The system is free to election officials in the state, though each county had to supply the laptop computers and label printers needed to run it. The system consists of a laptop computer with the “Precinct Atlas” software and an attached label printer. According to Bonham, the laptops are never connected to the Internet. Before each election, voter registration information is loaded into the program from the statewide voter registration and election management system. The electronic poll book allows precinct election officials to follow an on-screen step-by-step procedure for processing voters that will help prevent errors and provide another layer of security to the election process. The Precinct Atlas program was developed by Cerro Gordo County and first used in a special election for the Mason City Community School District in February 2009. “Dozens of counties have tried and tested this program in their precincts and are finding it to be a worthy addition to election administration that reinforces the integrity of the process,” Secretary of State Michael Mauro said. Bonham praised the system and workers. “Harrison County precinct election officials do a suburb job of conducting the elections,” she said. “Using the Precinct Atlas program only enhances the precinct election official’s ability to make sure that all necessary documentation is properly prepared. The process has gone very smoothly.” The system is scheduled to be used in 668 precincts in 46 Iowa counties in the November general election.
Public Power Week celebration Woodbine Municipal Light & Power is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 3-9. “Public Power Week is a chance for Woodbine Municipal Light & Power to articulate why the public power formula works in Woodbine. We are absolutely dedicated to providing topnotch service and the lowest rates possible,” Woodbine Municipal Light & Power Chris Waite said. Public Power Week is a national, annual event sponsored in conjunction with the American Public Power Association in Washington, D.C. APPA is the service organization for community- and state-owned electric utilities.
“We are proud to have served Woodbine for 69 years,” Chris Waite said. Woodbine Municipal Light & Power invites community members to participate in a variety of Public Power Week events. Activities include: • Customer with the municipal electric utility are invited to stop by and enjoy some refreshments at our offices and sign up for door prizes.
• Hazard Hamlet – Electrical Safety demonstration with the fourth grade students featuring Jody Peck from Missouri River Energy Services. “Woodbine Municipal Light & Power knows how vital electricity is for the people of Woodbine, and we continue to find ways to deliver it reliably, safely and with special attention to the environment,” Waite said. Woodbine Municipal Light & Power was created in 1941. Today our power is supplied by purchases from Missouri River Energy Services and the Western Area Power Administration. It serves approximately 810 residential customers, and 176 commercial and industrial customers.

Think Twice before Joining the “ Gold Rush” In recent months, you may have heard a lot about investing in gold. But is gold the right choice for you? Actually, many factors are involved in this investment decision —and you’ll want to consider these factors before you invest. Of course, the lure of gold is undeniable. Throughout history, gold has been perceived as having great intrinsic value. And this year, as you may know, gold prices have hit record highs, at well over $1,200 an ounce, as people have sought “shelter” from the stormy financial markets. But as an investment possibility, gold has some “scratches” to it. First of all, contrary to what you may believe, gold prices do not always go up; instead, they will fluctuate, sometimes greatly. Furthermore, there are specific risks with the different ways of investing in gold. If you bought a gold futures contract (an obligation to buy gold at a predetermined future date and price), you could lose money if gold falls, because you’ll still be obligated to complete your contract at the higher, agreed-upon price. If you purchased gold
in the form of coins, bullion or bars, you’d face storage, security, insurance and liquidity issues. You need to do a lot of research before investing in gold mining companies, because some of these companies may still be in the gold-exploring stage — and there’s no guarantee their explorations will lead to profitable discoveries. Also, even when its price is considerably lower than it is today, gold is still a fairly expensive investment compared to other choices. It can be costly to go into the gold futures market. And you’ll likely have to spend thousands of dollars if you want to buy a bar of gold or even a bunch of coins. Given these drawbacks to investing in gold, what can you do to fight back against market volatility? One of the best ways is to diversify your holdings among a variety of investments suitable for your financial objectives. Market downturns often affect one type of asset class more than another, so if you can spread your dollars among a variety of asset classes, you can help blunt the

effects of volatility. Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss. In coping with volatility, you’ll also help yourself by taking a long-term view of your investments’ performance. If you look at your investment statement for a given month, you might not like what you see. But holding your investments for the long term may help your portfolio better weather the ups and downs you’ll encounter in the investment world. So try to avoid the allure of gold as a “quick fix” to whatever seems to be ailing the financial markets at a particular time. Other investments may be less glitzy and glamorous than gold, but they can have their own sparkle. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

On your marks! Get set! Go! The 21st annual St. Jude Bike-A-Thon was more than successful in 2010, raising a total of $1,335.35 for the charitable organization. Sept. 11 marked the date for the riders, who managed to raise the highest number of funds donated from Woodbine in the event’s history. Helping to make that history was Kaitlyn
Neligh raising the most funds at $290. Behind her was first time rider and participant Jared Newton, raising $190 with Jamie Plowman close behind him, collecting $100. A total of 23 riders rode the distance – but three tied for the furthest distance. Conner Sullivan, Newton and Plowman rallied for 14 miles during the day. The youngest partici-
pant was a nine month old riding in a stroller and the oldest were grandparents. “It was a perfect weather day and everyone was able to enjoy themselves,” event coordinator Barb Steppuhn said. “A special thank you needs to go to Bev Neligh for her help before, after and during the event and to Randy Mether, Mary Plowman, Micky Newton and
Candy Vennink, and to all the parents that stayed to cheer on their kids and grandkids.” Other participants included: Kylie Neligh, Kassidy Neligh, Branden Steppuhn, Bailey Steppuhn, Brenner Sullivan, Breck Sullivan, Shawnie Sullivan, Darbie Argotsinger, Hadlie Argotsinger, Sarah Bennet, Betty Bennet, Michael
Bennet, Stacy Lowther, Aidan Lowther, Steven Lowther, Jenny Hinkel, Autumn Vennink, Lane Vennink and Wade Vennink. Donations for the event were delivered by: Natural Creations, RL Barry Accounting, Shaw’s Screenprinting, WalMart (Denison), Swain Reality, Midwest Retro Foam, Natural Fertilizer Services,

The Harrison County Conservation Board recently co-hosted an Iowa Association of County Conservation Boards conference at the Willow Lake Recreation Area near Woodbine and the Harrison County Historical Village/Iowa Welcome Center near Missouri Valley. Over 200 directors, park rangers and county conservation board members from throughout Iowa attended the conference to learn more about Harrison County Conservation Board, recent projects, rental cabins, park and wildlife areas and environmental education programming. It was a great way for HCCB to promote Harrison County and show the achievements of the conservation board in recent years. Pictured here: Tim Sproul, Director, talking about the recent projects at the historical village including the Loess Hills Scenic Byway Portal and Lincoln Highway Interpretive Center.

The Woodbine Twiner
Tigers dominate Warriors Sept. 24 JEFF POWERS For The Twiner The Tigers got a much needed district victory last Friday night over an undermanned Walnut Warrior team. The Warriors had only 15 players suited up and looked small. Offensively and defensively the Tigers had their way as they spoiled Walnut’s homecoming festivities. The Tigers offensive scored seven times in the first half with three big plays of 32 yards and longer. The defense dominated, forcing five punts, two turnovers and getting the ball back on downs twice. “The key was our ability to maintain our aggression on both sides of the football. I thought that we showed more emotion and that equated to better execution of our game plan,” Head Coach Jason Strong said. After receiving the opening kickoff, the game seemed to get off to a good start with a long touchdown run by Kyle Kuhlman only to be called back by a penalty. The Tigers then went three plays and punted which hinted the Tigers were in
for a long game. After Spencer Ball recovered a fumble on Walnut’s second play, the offense got rolling. After a successful fake punt the Tigers scored on a 21 yard touchdown pass to Josh Matusik. The Warriors went three plays and punted followed by a 32 yard touchdown pass to Kuhlman on the third play. After a quick three and out by the Warriors the Tigers on the first play threw an interception. The Tigers after forcing another punt and a big run by Kuhlman scored on a 13 yard run by Zach Archer. Within seconds Gavvon Shafer recovered a fumble and scooted 2 yards for another touchdown. With four successful 2 point conversions by Kuhlman, Matusik, Matt Monahan and Mason Mentink, the Tigers were up 32-0 at the end of the first quarter. Walnut had their chances early in the second quarter. On the first series a Warrior receiver dropped a pass after beating a Tiger defensive back. Following a Warrior punt, Kuhlman ran wild on 60 yard run for a score on the first play. On Walnut’s next possession the Warriors missed another

A total of 15 schools attended the event, including a wide mix of 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A schools. The Tigers’ showing wasn’t all good or bad. “It was rather wet and rainy, just like Applefest,” head coach Rod Smith said. “We had some positives and continue to show potential.” The Lady Tigers tallied seventh with 179 points. Harlan took the meet with 43; Atlantic, second, 72; Lewis Central, third, 87; Council Bluff’s Abraham Lincoln, fourth, 108; Underwood, fifth, 138; Denison, sixth, 165. Shelby Hall finished first for the Lady Tigers, in good standing, fifth position. Teammate Shelby Dick was behind her in 37th and Smith was pleased. “The two Shelby’s (Hall and Dick) ran awesome. It’s the best I’ve seen them run. Shelby Hall beat some girls that are rated in the top 25 in the state,” Smith said. Rounding out the team was Ellen Cox who finished 47th; Rebekka Boer, 50th; Emily Schwery, 53rd; Paige Hackman, 64th; Alyssa Blum, 66th. There were at total of 78 runners.

chance by overthrowing a receiver who got behind the defense, and then turned the ball over on downs. After three plays and a punt by both teams the Tigers didn’t waste any time scoring on a 55 yard run by Archer on the first play. After a couple of first downs, Walnut turned it back over to Woodbine on downs. Then after a couple of first downs by the Tigers, Matusik caught his second pass for a touchdown. With one successful 2 point conversion by Mentink the half ended with Woodbine up 52-0. The second half saw the continuous clock rule enforced for fourth game in a row, this time with the advantage to Woodbine. Both teams had only four possessions in the second half. The Tigers played half of their starters in the third quarter and mostly freshmen in the fourth quarter. The Tigers punted twice, turned the ball over on a high punt snap, and ended the game on downs. The Warriors managed two touchdowns, scoring on a 57 yard run and converting the turnover into a score. The game ended with Woodbine winning 52-12.
Offensively Kuhlman had another 100 plus rushing game and Matusik had two scores receiving. Defensively Shafer and Austin Quick were impressive with a fumble recovery for a score and two sacks for a loss respectively. “I thought that against Walnut, we improved in several areas. We tackled better on defense and played at a high level defensively which will give the kids more confidence going into next week. On offense, we were able to maintain our blocking which led to several big plays. I am concerned however at the number of penalties and this is something that we need to fix,” Strong said after the game. This week East Greene Grand Junction visits Woodbine as the Tigers return to their home field after two weeks on the road. “East Greene is a very solid team and they have played very well this season. The biggest challenge for us will be to play solid defense against their running game which has been very efficient. We will also need more discipline on offense and play mistake free football. Our run-

This game will be a huge test for this team, and we will have to be both physically and mentally prepared to play a tough game for four quarters. We have the attitude that we have to win the rest of our games to accomplish what we have set out to do,” Strong said. East Greene is 2-1 in the district. Woodbine, with
its win, improved to 1-2 and 2-3 overall. On paper, with Woodbine losing to Glidden Ralston 58-14, the Tigers should be competitive.

King candidates are Fynn Lindner, Zack Archer and Spencer Ball.
Tigers bumped from Conference The Woodbine Lady Tigers had a rough Conference Tourney Sept. 25, winning only one match of four while in Manning. The team started off right, defeating the neighboring Boyer Valley Bulldogs 21-7 in the first game. Unfortunately, the Lady Tigers were unable to keep the momentum up as the Bulldogs took them down 21-16 then 15-10 to mark Woodbine’s first lost match on the day. Justina Royer led in kills with seven, followed by Cydney Meeker and Taylor Barry with two each. Tiffany Vasquez led in assists with five, Kaitlyn Pulscher added four, Lauren Dubas, three. Digs were dominated by Shelby Vandemark with
five. Pulscher and Meeker had the team’s only blocks during the game with three each. Samijo Klaahsen led in aces with four, Vandemark added three and Pulscher, Royer and Barry had one each. The Lady Tigers kicked it up a notch when opposite the net of the Whiting Warriors, taking both games quickly, 21-15 and 21-14. Royer led in attacks and kills, 14 and 6, and added four digs and an ace. Klaahsen held her own with eight attacks, one kill and one dig. Pulscher led in digs with five. Barry served up the team’s only other ace during the game. The momentum didn’t stick as the Lady Tigers fell to IKM-Manning Wolves
21-10 and 21-11. The short games saw some short numbers. Royer led in attacks with 12 followed by Meeker with seven. Royer also led in kills with two, Pulshcer adding one. Vasquez and Dubas had two assists each – the only four during the game. Digs were led by Pulscher and followed by Royer and Vandemark with three each. The team tallied not a single block during the game and Barry and Royer were the only two on the team to serve up aces – one a piece. The Ridgeview Raptors ended Woodbine’s day on a down note, taking both games quickly at 21-9 then ending the Lady Tigers’ day 21-8. Attacks were led by Royer with 12 and fol-
lowed by Klaahsen with eight. There were five kills amongst the team – one player at a time compliments of Klaahsen, Pulscher, Royer, Vandemark and Lydia Payne. Assists were doled out by Vasquez with two and Vandemark added six digs. Again, blocking numbers weren’t only low, they were nonexistent. Two aces made it over the net – namely Klaahsen’s and Pulscher’s. The team finished the conference tourney at 1and-3 – not enough to make it to the finals Sept. 27. They followed conference with a match in Whiting Sept. 28 (coverage to appear in the Oct. 6 edition of The Twiner) and play at home Oct. 5 against Charter Oak-Ute.
