Gearing up for the Easter Egg Hunt
Grant money celebrated
NIKKI DAVIS Editor The exact dates and origins of Woodbine’s Easter Egg Hunt may be a little fuzzy, but one thing is black and white – it’s a solid, community tradition. An exact date for the long-time annual event isn’t documented, but a partnership was formed sometime between 1986 and 1998 when Jim and Cindy Mullenix were serving as leaders of the Hawkeye Ramblers 4H Club. “Jim told me that when they became involved with the club, the Easter Egg Hunt was already in place, but the 4-H was asked to help. Prior to that, it See EASTER Page 6

Photo: Nikki Davis USDA Rural Development State Director in Iowa Bill Menner was busy on April 8, making scheduled stops in Anita, Logan and Woodbine and adding in some unscheduled events to his day. Menner was travelling in Western Iowa to congratulate local leaders for accessing more than $1.5 million from the USDA to assist with a wide variety of community improvement projects to improve healthcare opportunities, fire and rescue services and economic devel-
opment in the western Iowa communities. “We are extremely pleased to be assisting these communities in their efforts to build for the future,” Menner said. “Today, more than 1.7 million Iowans call rural Iowa home. It is important that our rural communities continually look at ways to grow economic opportunities and make quality-of-life improvements.” Menner began his day with a stop in Anita to recognize leaders for accessing a $97,500 USDA grant to help purchase a new, multi-purpose fire
truck. The 4x4 vehicle will allow the local fire department to better fight grass fires which have been on the rise over recent years. The new vehicle is replacing a 23 year old one that was not equipped for off road activities. Menner then jaunted to Logan where he recognized a $93,000 USDA grant for the Logan Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association. Logan, as Anita, utilized the grant monies to obtain a new fire truck, as well as 24 sets of See GRANTS Page 6
Two people, along with several teachers and students, attended the public school budget hearing on April 12, which preceded the regular school board meeting. Woodbine Superintendent Tom Vint went through a computer presentation of the projected 2012 fiscal year school budget, carefully explaining revenues, district costs and income sources, how the figures are calculated and the percentages of those controlled by the state verses what is controlled locally. One interesting note pointed out was the school tax was decreasing by nine cents, but that land value in the district had gone up 3.5 percent See BOARD Page 6
CUBS Spring Carnival April 29 Olympics come to Woodbine NIKKI DAVIS Editor CUBS, Community United for a Better School, is gearing up for their annual Spring Carnival and Silent Auction to be held on April 29 in the Woodbine Community School commons and old high school gym. The annual carnival is utilized as a major fundraising event for the organization. “CUBS will be using this fundraiser as a means to provide on-going field
trips to the students and teachers,” CUBS Reporter Karen Lantz said. “We also use these fundraisers to purchase the medals for awards day, support teachers with snacks-on-the-go for between parent-teacher conferences and more.” As always, the Spring Carnival highlights several games for attendees such as: hula hoop contests, a bounce house, balloon animals, face painting, temporary tattoos, a cup cake walk, pop bottle ring toss, lollipop tree, bean See CUBS Page 6

here’s a lot going on around here – and I just wanted to point a few things out to you guys. I mean, all this information is already located here in the paper – but I think it warrants a little extra attention. I’ve been told by some, the first place they turn is the sports page. Well, I can’t put an editorial or Short Take there, but then I’ve had others tell me the first place they turn is the editorial page. That, my friends, I can handle. The Short Takes have been growing. They’re usually spilling over from the front page to page six – so I want you to understand how much is going on. When these items come in, we literally put them in the column in the order of which they were received. So, if you procrastinate and send it to me on a Monday (which we could technically refuse since our deadline is Friday at noon), don’t be mad when it’s buried at the bottom of a page. With that said, sometimes there’s just too much going on. There were things I wanted to point out that might be missed if you don’t read the Short Takes. First thing’s first, Easter Egg Hunt, which I’ve had several calls on, will be on Sat., April 23 at the City Park. Start time is 11 a.m. – so be there, or be square. Let’s not forget the Community of Christ’s annual Easter Bake Sale. 9 a.m. to noon on the same day! So wake up a little early and treat yourself to a goody to build up some energy to chase your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews all over the city park. Think fresh donuts, cinnamon rolls, cakes, cookies …. Mmmmmmm … Community of Christ’s youth group will also host a car wash as a fundraiser the following week on Wed., April 27 from 5-7:30 p.m. It’s $5! Where else are you going to get your car washed for $5 (where

you don’t have to do it yourself) and help a local church youth group!? Seems like a no-brainer to me. Let’s not forget about Crystal Pulscher. She’s collecting some items to take to Mapleton. These are our neighbors and fellow Iowans who have lost everything. They need clothes, toilet paper, paper towels, toothpaste … could you even imagine everything being gone in a 20 second time span? So if you’d like to contribute, even a single toothbrush will help. Call Crystal at 592-0484. And then there’s prom. April 30 with doors to open at 6 p.m. and grand march scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Lucky kids! And there’s regular events, as well. Like the Red Hats. This is quite the fun group of ladies! So if you’re looking for something to do … call Marian Mills at 647-2217 or Ann Olver at 647-2644 if you would like to try it out and haven’t yet! I’d also like to remind you that the Woodbine Ministerial Association’s Lenten Breakfasts are also in progress this week. Contact any religious leader here in town and they can tell you about it – or call me at 647-2821 and I’ll give you the schedule! So long story short, our Short Takes here don’t really seem so “short” anymore, do they? I had better not hear anyone tell me, “There’s nothing going on!”
ow that spring is upon us, the attention is drawn to lawns and landscapes. Several local people have brought in (or brought me out) to look at problems with landscape issues. The most common of these recently involve evergreens. Conifers serve well as attractive additions to the home environment and maintain some color over the winter. They also are excellent screens and do well as windbreak components. However in the last couple of decades, we have lost several conifer species from our recommended list, largely due to the development of disease issues. Most of the issues with conifers are predictable. I would guess over 90 percent of issues lie with three species, Austrian pine (Pinus nigra), Scot’s pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Colorado blue spruce (Picea glauca). And the prime time for disease development and decline is when the trees reach sexual maturity, generally about 10 to 15 years old. Unfortunately, by then they are fully integrated into the landscape and homeowners have often become
almost part of the family. The Austrian pines especially suffer from Diplodia tip blight, a fungal disease. The disease starts with a few brown needles at the tips of lower branches. Other needles in this year’s flush appear stunted, maybe a third to half the length of healthy needles. In short order, the damaging fungus will produce small black spore-bearing bodies on the needles, especially under the papery sheath. As the disease progresses, sunken cankers form on twigs that can girdle the stem. As it spreads, the tree becomes progressively weaker and often dies. Cone-bearing Scot’s pines are very susceptible to Pine wilt. This disease can infect all pine species, but many other pines have some tolerance to the disease. Pine wilt is caused by a nematode (a microscopic round worm) that is carried from tree to tree by pine sawyer beetles. Once infected, the tree declines rapidly, and usually Scot’s pines die within a year or so of symptom development. Colorado blue spruce trees seem to be among the most popular landscape plantings, consid-
EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator email@example.com ering their fine pyramidal form and lustrous blue cast to the needles. Most city blocks and farmsteads alike have blue spruce trees of varying ages in western Iowa. A fungal disease called Rhizosphaera needle cast is a frequent problem for blue spruce. But during the last several years, another problem has appeared. Numerous blue spruce trees have suffered from a non-infectious related decline, frequently leading to death. Plant pathologists at ISU have looked at many declining trees and believe they are suffering a stress syndrome on blue spruce that involves the weather. In recent wet spring seasons, waterlogging of part of the root systems has led to poor root growth and root death. When dry weather causes water demands to rise, especially in dry late summers and into the winter, the tree is unable to take up enough water from its compromised
root system causing the tree to suffer drought stress. The stress shows up as browning needles, and the tree becomes disfigured and can die. These three species are no longer recommended for plantings in western Iowa. For replacement conifers, I would look toward alternative species. I would first look to the “whites,” including white spruce (same general shape as blue spruce, without the blue coloring), white fir (also known as concolor fir), and even white pine as potential options. Black hills spruce (actually a subspecies of white spruce) and Norway spruce are both also good to consider. However, the correct choice still depends on fitting an appropriate species to an appropriate site. For additional information, contact Rich Pope at the Harrison County Extension office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 712-644-2105.

Community Job Olympics celebrated at Woodbine Community School From OLYMPICS Page 1 “I told her, ‘I want to do this,’ and her reply was, ‘Yes. I think my kids should do that.’ So the Job Skills and Contemporary Living got together,” Smith said. The rest is Olympics history. “This has been a wonderful opportunity for the students. We attempt to make everything as real as possible, especially the whole employment portion,” Cogdill said. Now in its fourth year, students were tested after handing in a resume judged on several
resume facets including, but not limited to, spelling, capitalization, punctuation and visual appeal. School teachers and administration joined forces with Woodbine business community members to judge and rate the students in several categories. Several community volunteers and faculty members donated their time and expertise to help the Olympics continue at the school. Spanish teacher Julie Coffey acted like a disgruntled customer while
Thomsen Chiropractic owner Jackie Thomsen and Tammy Barrett judged the student’s ability to cope with the situation. United Western Coop Manager Trent Sprecker was on hand to judge students on their ability to tie a tie – regardless of gender. Fouts Funeral Home’s Beth Fouts watched carefully as students were asked to count change back to her at her station. Woodbine City Clerk Lois Surber timed and checked students’ filing capabilities.

The Woodbine Twiner
Grant money celebrated: New Alegent Clinic Open From GRANTS Page 1 bunker gear and other emergency medical services-related equipment. Menner wrapped up his day in Woodbine where he was scheduled to make three stops, but ended with four. Menner was able to tour Woodbine’s downtown area which has recently undergone significant, historical renovations, thanks in part to the Main Street Iowa program with assistance from USDA Rural Development. After the tour, Menner added a surprise visit and presentation originally not
on his agenda. Menner was able to meet with Jason Sherer of the Pisgah Fire Department to recognize the organization for securing a $18,000 grant to purchase a 4x4 fire truck to assist with fighting grass fires. Sherer works in Woodbine at Rose Vista and had agreed to meet with Menner on short notice. Following the ceremonies, Menner then presented certificates of participation to three groups from Woodbine: Woodbine Mayor Bill Hutcheson and City Administrator Joe Gaa for the City of Woodbine and Dustin and Mindy
Crook as well as Darin Smith on behalf of 503 Walker, LLC and the Woodbine Community Betterment and Development Corporation. Hutcheson and Gaa went through plans with Menner for a new fire station to be constructed with the assistance of a $100,000 USDA grant as well as a second $100,000 to replace a 30 year old vehicle. 503 Walker, LLC was awarded a $29,750 USDA grant that was utilized to install an energy saving geothermal heating and cooling system in the 503 and 505 Walker St. build-
ings. The renovated buildings now host a new restaurant, commercial and retail space as well as six new apartments. Menner’s last stop of the day was at the open house ceremonies for the new Alegent Clinic in Woodbine. The new building, owned by the Woodbine Community Betterment and Development Corporation. The medical clinic become a reality, in part, by a $945,000 loan and $199,500 grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and administered by the USDA Rural Development.
The open house proved a successful event with USDA Rural Development Area Specialists Dee Fischer and Doug Grindberg, Weitz Project Manager Victor Baez, Alley-Poyner Macchietto Architecture Principal Albert Macchietto, Senator Charles Grassley’s Regional Director Donna Barry, Alegent Health Administrator Bob Valentine, doctors, nurses and more on hand to talk with the Woodbine public about the facility and their roles in making the new clinic a reality. A ribbon cutting ceremony took place in the lobby of the new facility
at 4 p.m. “Keeping rural Iowa vibrant and prosperous requires a dedication to innovation, education and infrastructure,” Menner said. “Loans and grants from USDA Rural Development continue to play a vital role in our rural communities’ efforts to grow and thrive.” For more information regarding these grants or other loans and grants available, please contact the USDA Rural Development offices in Atlantic at 712243-2107, extension 4, or visit their Web site at www.rurdev.usda.gov/ia.
School Board finalizes budget; appoints Karen Lantz From BOARD Page 1 which will result in taxpayers seeing an increase in taxes. After all questions were answered, the hearing was closed and the regular meeting was called to order at 7:03 p.m. by Amy Sherer, with Todd Heistand, Mike Staben and Amber Nelsen answering roll. Several new items on the amended consent agenda were explained in detail, and after being discussed, the board approved the senior graduation and eighth grade promotion lists, the resignations of Nancy Heistand from speech and theatre; Tim Marshall as activity director; the resignation from Heath Stille as fifth grade teacher and coach; and a contract to Ryan Coenen for high school math, head girls’ basketball, assistant football and junior high girls’ track coach. It was pointed out the activity director position would go back to
Principal Rick Shanks, who would no longer be teaching an academy class due to state accreditation changes. Elementary Principal Kathy Waite announced there were 30 days of school left and much to be done. Kindergarten roundup was held, and the numbers for preschool continue to grow. The Earth Day Committee has been working with Alana Smith, who is working in Woodbine to help fulfill the goals of the Pilot Green Initiative, on plans for a community garden in which students will be able to tend to. Registrations for summer latch key and Tiger Tots are coming in. Secondary Principal Rick Shanks told the board the junior high students were collecting items to help fulfill the emergency needs of the Mapleton area tornado victims, and noted the sincerity of their intentions. The Safety
Committee met to review and work on the severe weather plan. Shanks also asked for board direction in selling old football jerseys that have been replaced by new ones. The focus on education report was lead by Sara Cox who talked about the talented and gifted program, after which board member Nelsen had a list of questions on. The more modern approach of the program integrates ways to challenge a TAG student within the classroom without specifically singling that student out. Cox proceeded to answer questions on the subject from board members. The board was reminded of the upcoming AEA 13 Super Board Meeting at Griswold on April 27, and was encouraged to attend the informative meeting. The theme of the meeting will be technology. Next on the agenda was the administrating of the

The five member board then proceeded on to pass the 2012 Fiscal Year Budget as advertised including a $450,000 cash reserve levy, a $42,358 SBRC cash
reserve levy, a 10 percent instructional support levy, and the PPEL levy. Also approved was the supplemental ISCAP resolution which authorizes and provides for the issuance of, and authorizes and directs the final terms and conditions of the sale and delivery of warrants evidenced
by warrant certificates for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011, amending the master resolution. The board then went into closed session to discuss the salary and benefit package for classified and administrative staff at 7:55 p.m. with the May meeting being set for Thur., May 12, at 7 p.m.
Gearing up for the Easter Egg Hunt: A long-time Woodbine tradition From EASTER Page 1 was hosted by the Woodbine Chamber of Commerce,” Hawkeye Ramblers 4-H current leader Kristi Mentink said. “During the Mullenix’s time as leaders is when it became a group effort and it has been that way ever since.” In 1998, the Mullenix’s handed down the title of leaders to Lynn and Cindy Dickinson and Bob and Lori Thompson. The foursome continued the Easter Egg Hunt tradition. It was in 2006 when current
Hawkeye Ramblers leaders Juli Cox and Mentink began heading up the tradition. They now carry five years of experience as Easter Egg Hunt co-organizers. The traditional event is one Mentink and Cox are proud of. “In 4-H, one of our key components is to teach community service,” Mentink said. “This is a great community service project. We really want the kids to get out there and get involved with the community and its people.”
Working hand in hand with the Woodbine Main Street-Chamber, the two groups merge to form one, successful and fun event. The Main StreetChamber purchases candy for the annual event and the Hawkeye Ramblers do their part in organizing and setting it up. In order to run the event smoothly, the 4-Hers divide the hunt into three age groups, including preschool and under, kindergarten and first graders and second graders on up. It’s unusual,
Mentink pointed out, to get anyone older than the fourth grade level. Candy is spread throughout the park for the eager egg hunters. “We just toss the candy out,” Mentink said. “And we try to be conscious about health and safety. We always put out fruit snacks for the youngest age groups and avoid things like suckers for preschoolers. But we don’t put these items into the eggs, so you are able to see what you’re picking up.” Just because there’s no
candy in the eggs, doesn’t mean there aren’t any. The familiar, plastic eggs are spread throughout the park with marked papers in them. The papers translate to prizes supplied by the 4H Club for the three age groups. “These eggs are in each section and we ask that each hunter only grab one. You match the symbol or number inside the egg with the prize it corresponds with,” Mentink said. Prizes range depending on age. For the younger egg

Municipal electric utilities from western Iowa responded to Maplet on April 10 after a tornado had struck the western Iowa community Saturday evening. Electric superintendent with the Mapleton Municipal Utilities Tom Lefebvre made the request for mutual aid through Rory Weis with the Denison Municipal Utilities. Weis placed a phone call to Dan Wilson at Ogden Municipal Utilities. Weis and Wilson are the mutual aid coordinators for that part of the State of Iowa for the mutual aid program for the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities. Phone calls were made and the communities of Denison,
Woodbine, Onawa, Manning, Manilla and Sergeant Bluff worked throughout the day on Sunday and were able to assist the Mapleton crew in restoring service to a large number of customers by days end. NIPCO, the transmission provider worked Saturday night and Sunday morning to restore transmission service to the community and also set up a portable substation since there was damage to the utility’s substation transformer from the tornado. Plans are for crews to return to Mapleton on Monday morning to restore electric service to parts of the community that do not have as much damage from the tornado.

that an embargo exception is not needed for anyone hauling livestock feed in. The County’s policy clearly does not restrict this action. Phone Messages Mr. Stoner replayed two recorded phone messages regarding bridges within the County. The Board felt that these individuals could come in to the board meeting to discuss the issues. Existing Industry Proclamation Renea Anderson, HCDC, requested the Board to proclaim the month of April 2011 as Existing Business and Industry Month.

With business of the day completed, the Board adjourned on a motion by Utman, second by Smith. ATTEST: Susan Bonham, Auditor Robert V. Smith, Chairman April 7, 2011 The Board of Supervisors met in session with all members present, except Pitt. The current agenda was approved on a motion by Utman, second by Smith. Motion carried.

to the following individual and/or businesses: Scott Hockstein for concrete delivery on 335th St. until April 8th.

Insurance Committee Kris Pauley, Lorie Thompson and Matt Pitt discussed the County’s policy regarding spouses of retired employees staying on the
County health insurance. Historically, the County has followed COBRA guidelines of allowing the spouse to stay on the policy for either 18 or 36 months depending upon when the employee retired from the County. A request from a retired employee to allow the spouse to stay on longer than the COBRA guidelines was received. Upon further investigation, the County can allow the spouse of a retired employee to stay on the County’s Health insurance policy (at the spouse’s expense) until that spouse reaches the age of 65, but the County would have to change its current policy of following COBRA guidelines. The Insurance Committee recommended keeping the current policy. The Board agreed to continue following COBRA guidelines. Public Health Nursing Administrator Nicole Carritt gave her final agency update to the Board as her last day as administrator will be April 15th. Mrs. Carritt felt that communication among the providers has grown and hopes that trend will continue. The Board thanked Mrs. Carritt for her dedication to the job that has resulted in the success of the Agency. Passports Recorder Lorie Thompson
updated the Board on passports. Currently, the Recorder’s Office processes passport requests. However, under the new Federal regulations effective May 1st, that service might come to a close. The new guidelines don’t want employees to be able to handle both birth certificates and passport applications. Mrs. Thompson is working to control employee access to certain records and may store some records in locked cabinets in the computer room as a way to be able to continue to offer this service to the residents. At some point, Federal authorities will come to Harrison County and review the Recorder’s office procedures and will determine if they are acceptable or not. If not acceptable, residents will have to go elsewhere for passport applications. Until that time, Mrs. Thompson said that the office will continue to process passport applications. Claims Claims, as presented, were approved for payment. With business of the day completed, the Board adjourned on a motion by Utman, second by Smith. ATTEST: Susan Bonham, Auditor Robert V.

Sports Lady Tigers forge ahead Boys continue winning streak NIKKI DAVIS Editor
NIKKI DAVIS Editor
April 12 West Monona The Lady Tigers travelled to West Monona April 12 to take on 12 neighboring schools at the Spartan Invite. The team tallied a 92.5 after all was said and done, leaving them in fourth place. Missouri Valley and Logan-Magnolia tied for a first place finish with a 102 at the meet and OA-BCIG missed out on a three way tie by half a point with 101.5. However, a rapid decline followed the Lady Tigers as the score went from 92.5 to Boyer Valley’s 24 points in fifth place. “We are up against some outstanding competition this year,” head coach Rod Smith said. “We’re doing quite well when you consider who we’re competing against. But I don’t think we’ve reached our full potential yet.” The weather was much more cooperative as track participants and spectators were treated to nice weather, although still a bit windy. Opening in the field events was Meagan Andersen, who finished just out of medal contention in the shot put, but brought home gold in the discus with a 104 feet 4 inch launch. “This was a personal best for her and it also places her in Woodbine’s all time top 10,” Smith pointed out. Bekka Boer finished well in the high jump with a 4-10 which was good enough for second while teammate Paige Hackman went 4-6 for a fifth place finish. Justina Royer leaped 15-10 in the long jump, finishing second. In mid and long distance running, the team remains solid, placing well. Ellen Cox ran the 3,000 in 12:53.60 which left her in second place and completed the 1,500 in 5:53.36 for a fourth place finish. Boer followed right behind her in the 1,500 in 6:00.65 and sixth place. A bitter sweet finish came to Shelby Hall in the 800. “Shelby got her all time best in the 800 and would have broken the meet record,” Smith pointed out. “But Mackenzie Smith from Sergeant Bluff-Luton beat her across the finish line by less than two seconds.” In short distance, Hackman took silver in the 400meter dash with a 1:05.77. Hackman also ran the 400 hurdles for the Lady Tigers, taking fifth in a 1:14.09. Royer added to her long jump medal with a fourth place finish in the 100-meter hurdles with a 16.97. Woodbine’s relay teams faired well at the event as well. Gold was earned by Kaitlyn Pulscher, Lydia Payne, Royer and Hall in the distance medley at the team finished in 4:33.66, setting the teams’ personal record this season. Allison Lee, Shelby Behrendt, Pulscher and Hall teamed up for the sprint medley and landed second after a 1:59.50 race while Hackman, Pulscher, Royer and Hall also brought home silver in the 4x400 with a time of 4:25.32. The 4x2, Lee, Behrendt, Smith and Payne, ran a 2:01.18, adding two team points after a fifth place finish while the shuttle hurdle relay team and 4x800 both ended sixth with help from Boer, Alyssa Blum, Lee and Smith and Shelby Dick, Claire Probasco, Payne and Blum respectively. “We had some good performances,” Smith said. “Bekka had one of her best nights, setting a personal record and the 1,500 and helping the shuttle hurdle team. Justina also set a PR in the long jump as did the distance medley team. I think they’re ranked among the top 10 in the state now. And I’m pleased with Kaitlyn as she helps as a relay filler and has ran some really good times.” The Lady Tigers travel to Elk Horn April 21 for a 5 p.m. meet then are off to Ida Grove for a 4:30 p.m. meet on April 26.
April 12 Logan The Woodbine boys track team is making a name for themselves this season and becoming the team to want to beat. They travelled to Logan for the Bob Evans Relays April 12 and took their third title out of three meets so far this season. They finished up with 120 team points, followed closely by West Harrison with 117 and Missouri Valley in third with 116. Aside from team gold, the Tigers brought home five more first place finishes. Zack Archer tallied a 16.9 in the 110-meter hurdles for first and was also part of the winning 4x2 relay team along with Sam Powers, Kyle Kuhlman and Alex Klein who finished with a 1:39.90 and gold. Archer, Powers, Mason Mentink and Gavvon Shafer comprised the winning shuttle hurdle relay team with a L:06.58 jaunt while Archer, Kuhlman, Shafer and Klein took a 47.30 in the 4x100meter relay – and another gold. Ethan Lenz stapled the team in long distance running, earning gold in the 3,200 with a time of 11:22.70, finishing approximately 15 seconds ahead of the second place finisher.
In sprints, Kuhlman nipped at Klein’s heels in the 100 and 200 as the pair finished second and third in both respectively, with 11.78 and 12.05 in the 100 and 23.86 and 24.61 in the 200. In the 400, Fynn Lindner found himself fifth with a 59.71 while Austin Quick ran a 2:13.40 in the 800, earning silver, and Lenz went 5:16.68 in the 1,600, finishing fourth. In field events, Jameson Delaney ended fifth in the high jump with a 5 feet, 2 inch jump and teammate Powers landed sixth in the long jump with a 16-8.50. Spencer Ball took fourth in the shot put with a 40-3.25 and fifth in the discus with a 117-03. Brandon Workman edged into medal contention with a sixth place finish in discus with a 114-07. “Spencer did well, but he wasn’t throwing like he usually does,” head coach Jason Strong said. “He averages a 130 in the discus which should have put him around third.” Mason Mentink added four team points for the Tigers in the 400-meter hurdles with a 1:05.20. The Black and Gold added two third place finishes in relays: the distance medley with Montana Winther, Tristan Hatterman, Lucas Hedstrom and Jordan Jacobsen with a 4:23.89;
Ethan Lenz stapled the team in long distance running, earning gold in the 3,200 with a time of 11:22.70, finishing approximately 15 seconds ahead of the second place finisher.

Adding two team points for Woodbine here Monahan, Lindner, Mason Mentink and Quick in the 4x4 with a 4:08.99. “Levi Brown was gone and I think we may have lost out on about 10 points
due to his absence,” Strong said. “But it was a good, fun meet. The 4x2 and 4x8 relay teams both set personal records for the season.” The boys team travels to Elk Horn for a 5 p.m. meet on April 21 and will appear at home at the Phil Hummel Relays at 5 p.m. April 25.

April 12 Riverside The Woodbine boys golf team found themselves in Oakland for a golf dual on April 12. the outcome was an improvement over their previous meet, as the boys took the dual and the top two medals. Davis Hackman golfed an outstanding 39 on the nine holes to take home gold for the Tigers. Joe Brown shocked himself by golfing a 42, bringing home silver. “This was Joe’s first medal – ever,” head coach Tim Marshall said. “He was very excited after the meet. He played a great game.” Other team members finishing behind
Hackman and Brown were: Chris Johnson, 57; Jay Radloff, 58; Patrick Glackin, 58; and Mason Mentink, 60. “It was a great meet overall,” Marshall said. “The weather was perfect and we really played well.” April 11 Onawa The Woodbine boys golf team travelled to Onawa on April 11 for a windy game of golf, finishing five out of six teams at the end of the day. “The conditions just weren’t ideal and we did not play our best,” head track coach Tim Marshall said. “The conditions made it difficult and that course is completely flat with hardly any wind
breaks in place.” One highlight of the meet was a personal best competitive round game delivered by Jay Radloff with a 51. It bested his first score in Logan on April 4 by 12 swings. Davis Hackman ended with Woodbine’s top score of 48. “I know Davis was not happy after the meet was over. He was quite disappointed,” Marshall said. Other competitors included: Joe Brown, 50; Chris Johnson, 58; Patrick Glackin, 62; and Seth Willis, 69. Logan While the boys travelled to Onawa for a round of golf, the girls found themselves at the Logan-Magnolia Country
Club on April 11. It was a tough meet for the girls, as they finished five out of five teams. “The weather wasn’t any better in Logan than it was in Onawa,” Marshall said. “It was just a hard day to golf.” Woodbine senior Alyssa Valles finished on top for the Lady Tigers with a 67. Other Lady Tigers competing included: Courtney Schlinz, 70; Melissa Sherer, 73; Jessica Allen, 75; Alaina Barnum, 92; and Heather Park, 108. “I continue to see improvement in our girls team,” Marshall said. “Our primary goal is improvement for this young, inexperienced team. I hope to keep that trend moving.”
