CHAMBER CONNECTION MAIN STREET-CHAMBER BY VIRGINIA SMITH DESIGN COMMITTEE
“Feel good” green Spring is here and many of us have begun to think about the planting of trees, bushes, flowers and gardens. Have you noticed the beautiful trees that were recently planted east of the amphitheater? The addition of the Korean Sun Pear shrubs to the space changed the area from something unnoticeable and unusable to an area that is now a welcoming extension of the amphitheater area. Trees, shrubs and other plants provide multiple benefits to our community. The Main Street Design Committee will continue to focus on streetscape improvements during the coming year as one of its primary Goals, Projects and Objectives. The term ‘green’ has become popular in recent years. Green is the color of health and nature. It represents nature, growth, fertility, money and safety to name just a few. Green is a relaxing color and has known healing benefits. For example, according to the American Journal of Nursing, the color green has been found to be beneficial in treating fatigue in patients. It is soothing and has a relaxing effect. Simply looking at a green-colored page will create an at ease feeling. The color green has been found to help alleviate anxiety, nervousness and depression. It provides a sense of renewal, harmony and self-control. It is often used to represent anything having to do with health. Many pharmaceutical and nutritional companies use green in their logos and material to advertise safe, natural products. Green is used in decorating because of its calming effect. Guests that wait to be introduced on television shows wait in the ‘green room’ to relax. Designers are selecting green as a popular color because of the positive benefits associated with good health, balance, relaxation and a refreshing feeling. Green takes up more space in the color spectrum that is visible to the human eye. Green is the most prevalent color in the natural world. Stressed people who looked at slides of nature had a noticeable reduction in negative emotions and an increase in positive feelings than when they looked at urban locations without plants or trees. Please go take a look at what a difference a few Korean Sun Pear shrubs have made to the triangular space opposite the amphitheater. Better yet, take a moment to sit in the area and let the green soak in. For those who would like to put their ‘green thumb’ expertise to good use, please email the Main Street office for information, email@example.com. Volunteers will be welcome and necessary as Twiners continue “greening” our community.

CLEANING DETAIL – On April 18, 34 Woodbine Elementary School second-grade students teamed together to clean up Kiwanis Park (where Merry Brook School is). The students worked in the park from 12:30 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. picking up litter, tree limbs, etc. Forrest Johnson was on hand representing the Woodbine Kiwanis Club and Mary Eby was the sponsoring teacher. The event has a long tradition and helps make the children aware of Earth Day as well as teaching the value and importance of good citizenship, Eby said. Following the work, the students were treated to an ice cream. (Photo by Kevin Brown)

Area resident supports Friedrichsen candidacy as state representative To the Editor: It’s important to be represented by someone who remembers their home. That is why I support Kasey Friedrichsen for State Representative. Like me, Kasey came back to her hometown
after attending college to make her community a better place to work and thrive. That's an unpopular decision these days, but it's what our small towns need. Kasey worked at Denison's Workforce
Development office, and after it was closed last year, Kasey saw that we needed better representation in the Capitol. She is now running for State Representative. When we send Kasey to Des Moines, she will
be taking the concerns of all the voters with her, because that is what she has done her whole life. Sincerely, Ken Kahl, Jr. Buck Grove

Field Mycology 101 Last year on April 22, I wrote in this column “Anhydrous ammonia tanks have been rolling down the road for a few weeks, trees are leafing out and we have had a rain-filled week. For many Iowans, that all adds up to the hallowed season of morel hunting. And not to start the stampede going, but I have heard reports of a few morels being found last week in southern Iowa!” Contrast that to this
year, and on April 20, if anything, we are nearing the end of morel season. I was talking to some avid “Morel-er” friends in Sloan this week who lurk through
Missouri River north of here. There was great uncertainty about the effects of the 2011 flood on morels this year. From reports, there was remarkable hunting

success particularly along the base of cottonwoods that were dislodged by the floodwaters. Though the season was early this year, the rain that fell last weekend may spark a short reprise to morel hunting for the next couple of weeks. There are several species of true morels, but we have three that are most commonly found in western Iowa. The earliest seem to be the “little grey ones,” Morchella deliciosa (the delicious one). Very soon after, they are joined by the yellow morel, Morchella esculentum, which is the standard most think about in the spring. Toward the end of the season (starting about now), a third species can show up called the giant morel, Morchella crassipes. Giant morels provide people those occasional “wow” moments of finding the “you can’t believe how big it is” mushrooms that grow up to 10 inches long and are occasionally shown off at the local coffee shop. Any morels you find are simply the fruiting structure that the fungus grows to produce
and spread spores. When you pick a morel you are taking the fruit from a mass of unseen fungal threads called hyphae. Plucking these morsels really does little to harm the parent fungus, as long as you don’t rough up the whole area. As for other mushrooms, there are plenty of different species of mushrooms that grow in Iowa. Last week, we had a soft polypore species brought in for identification. The Polypores are a group that often is found as shelf fungi on dying trees that shed spores in tubes on the underside of the cap rather than from sheets of gills. In my keying of the mushroom, it had a distinctive smell of watermelon rind. The only one that does that is called Dryad’s saddle. These are likely edible when young, but as they grow old they become tough and unpalatable. But as I say that, my advice is that unless you have an experienced mycologist (someone who studies fungi) identify an unknown mushroom, they are ok to look at, ok to do a spore print of them (a process that is pretty interesting and sometimes help in identifying it), but DO NOT EAT it!!! Yes, there are some edible mushrooms, but there are also many similar looking ones that are deadly toxic. It just isn’t worth the risk!

The games will include fun and exciting outdoor skills challenges including fishing-pole casting for accuracy, compass navigation, animal identification quiz, tent pitching race, and a target range contest. Free team photos will be taken and provided onsite and a variety of gifts will be given away. Several community partners also will be at the Games with resource information. Among those will be Kay Newman, director with SOAR (Save Our Avian Resources), in Dedham. Newman said she plans to bring Thora, a 10 ½ pound bald eagle, that will be perched on the ground, and Blaze, a kestrel that weights about 4 ounces and will set on the wrist and is comfortable around people. Newman said her group will be stationary in the park and provide question and answer times and be available to introduce the birds to the public. “We will set-up in a quiet, shady space and wait for people to come to us,” Newman said. “The eagle will have a certain amount of personal space with people will be able to get closer to Blaze. We have information on our
program, the importance of nature and also on initiatives to limit lead in shot and fishing tackle that can harm wildlife. Newman said more information about her nonprofit – which was formed in 1999 -- is found on her website at http://www.soarraptors.org/index.html. There is a full slate of information there, including how to donate to the program. Also at the event will be Cynthia Hansen with Lead Is Poison Coalition. Hansen said the program seeks to inform the public and hunting and fishing industries about the dangers of lead in bullets and fishing lures. Hansen will make presentations and have more information on her program at the event. For more on this group, please visit http://www.leadispoison.com/. Team registration for the event (four- to sixmembers including one to two adults) is available at www.HarrisonCountyIA. org or by calling (712) 6442220. Registration closes April 29.

Even with Low Rates, You can Invest for Income Not long ago, the Federal Reserve (Fed) announced that it plans to keep short-term interest rates near zero until late 2014. The Fed initially pushed rates to that level in 2008, in an effort to stimulate economic growth. Clearly, low interest rates have a wideranging impact — but what effect will they have on you, as an individual investor? If you need income from your investments, then the continuation of ultra-low interest rates may be a matter of some concern, particularly if you own certain types of fixedincome investments, such as certificates of deposit. While CDs are insured, offer return of principal at maturity and provide regular interest payments, they are not risk-free. With low interest rates, you risk losing purchasing power. Still, fixed-rate vehicles may well have a place in your portfolio. If you’re even somewhat dependent on your investments for income, you may need to broaden your search. Here are a few ideas to consider: • Build a bond ladder. Long-term bonds, by their nature, are more subject to interest rate risk than shorterterm vehicles. In other words, interest rates are more likely to rise during the life span of a longer-term bond — and when rates go up, the prices of existing bonds will fall. To help lower this risk, you may want to build
a “ladder” of bonds of varying maturities. Then, if market interest rates are low, you’ll still have your long-term bonds earning higher rates, but if rates rise, you can take advantage of them by reinvesting the proceeds of your maturing short-term bonds. But remember to work with your financial advisor to evaluate whether a bond ladder and the securities held within it are consistent with your investment objectives, risk tolerance and financial circumstances. • D i v i d e n d - p ay i n g stocks.You can find companies that have paid dividends for many consecutive years — and in some cases, increased their dividend payout each year. In 2012, companies listed in the S&P 500 are on track to pay out more than $252 billion in dividends, a record amount, according to data compiled from Standard & Poor’s. (Keep in mind that the S&P 500 is an unmanaged index and is not available for direct investment.) Of course, stock prices will fluctuate in value, and you may receive more or less than your original investment when you sell. Historically, dividend-paying stocks have been less volatile than non-dividend-paying stocks. Be aware, though, that companies can lower or discontinue dividend payments at any time without notice.

performance is not a guarantee of future results. • Refinance your mortgage. Today’s low rates are good news for borrowers. With tougher standards in place, it may not be as easy to refinance a mortgage as it once was, but if you qualify, you may want to think about refinancing.You may be able to save quite a bit of money on your monthly payments — and lower payments can translate into a greater cash flow. Plus, if you don’t need all the savings, you can put some of the money into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or another retirement savings vehicles. Ultimately, an extended period of low interest rates is just one more factor to consider in creating and adjusting your investment strategy. Work with your financial advisor to help ensure low rates won’t affect your income needs.

The Woodbine Twiner
Woodbine second-graders will celebrate the 13th year of successful Pen Pal program with Omaha children in 2012 From FARM Page 1 on things such as a skyscraper, taxicabs, parking meters, etc., Eby said. Woodbine returns the favor May 10 by hosting an all day visit. The Omaha students will be welcomed at the main entrance to the school with the Woodbine second-grad-ers lined up ready to escort their pen pals into the building for tours and fellowship. At 10 a.m., Eby said, it is off to the Lloyd and Patricia DeForest family farm, 1892 Union Lane. During the trip, Eby said it is interesting to hear the questions the Omaha kids ask. “They want to know where all the houses are, where the McDonald’s is and where the mall is,” Eby said. “You explain to them that a stand of trees is called a timber in the country, not a wood. Many of these children have never seen the countryside before. When we go by the airport, they can’t understand our airport. They don’t understand the farm terraces. It is really an eye opener for them – they just can’t believe it.” Before the big farm trip, however, the children have been writing, calling and chatting online with their pen pals – that is where the language arts and social studies component of the experience comes into play. “Each month, we
exchange written letters with the Omaha students,” Eby said. “We try to include in our letters facts about Woodbine and Iowa. In turn, the Omaha kids tell us about Nebraska. For both schools, this is a unique approach to teaching cultural diversity and written language instruction.” Educational objectives that Eby and Morgan (who retired last year; Mr. Miller is the new instructor) weave into this yearlong project include promoting an awareness of cultural differences and similarities between rural and urban communities; the promotion of interactive activities for the students, their parents, teachers, community members and organizations; and the chance for students from two different worlds to meet and develop friendships while improving their written and overall communication skills. Eby shares the Pen Pal program with fellow second grade teacher, Tammy Klein. “The students learn quickly how similar they are to each other,” Eby said. “The do that by sharing their favorite foods, favorite TV shows and other interests. When they first meet, the students are a bit cautious. But, then they start visiting and soon they are holding hands. It widens their worlds.” For the farm tour,
Eby – who has lived in Woodbine her entire life – said she was familiar with the DeForests and their farm and asked the couple if they would be willing to share their time with the students. “It is a typical farm with a lot of animals,” Eby said. “They have been wonderful – literally turning their farm over to 90-plus secondgraders every year. The children get to pet goat and lambs, feed the horses and cows and hold baby chicks. Pat always treats everyone to homemade cookies and lemonade. It’s a really amazing experience – they just let the kids go. They gravitate to the whatever animal they like.” Lloyd DeForest said he and his wife enjoy sharing the time and their farm with the students. “We get a lot of satisfaction out of seeing the gleam in the student’s eyes,” he said. “Some of these kids have never had this kind of opportunity. Some have never even seen mud. They just beam when they are holding or petting the baby animals. I know they talk about the experience when they leave.” DeForest did say it takes a bit more work to prepare for the visits today than in the past. “I am semi-retired now and we have fewer animals around the farm these days,” he said. “But, I have a lot of friends who loan me
baby chicks, goats and lambs. We still have horses and mules – the kids really like those, too. They love to have the horses eat grass from their hands. I also try to have animals of different colors. The kids will notice the diversity of color of the animals. They really can relate to that.” DeForest said he enjoys watching the kids line the pen fences and he said the animals enjoy the attention as much as the kids enjoy interacting with them. “The animals know that when the kids come they will get a lot of attention and they like that,” he said. These days, DeForest said even Woodbine children get something out of the farm experience. “In my day, everyone had a connection to the farm,” DeForest said. “Farms today aren’t like they used to be – fewer have a variety of animals anymore like they used to. It is surprising how even Woodbine kids ask about the animals and the farm.” Following the yearly visits, DeForest said he and his wife enjoy receiving and reading the thank you letters from all the students. “The students write individual thank you notes,” he said. “They draw pictures of what they liked. Some of the notes are very heartwarming. They say things like ‘I wish I could live there all the
time.’ They seem to enjoy what it would be like to live in the country. The kids also are the most loving and polite little kids.” DeForest said the Pen Pal visits are one of the highlights for he and his wife in their roughly 52 years of farming. His wife, Patricia, agreed. “We gain more from the visit that the students do,” she said. “They tell us about their lives. Many have grown up in housing developments and they don’t understand not seeing another house in sight. They ask if they can run around and scream – things that are hard to do in the city. We tell them to go for it. We have dogs – the kids love to be with the dogs. I love to see the joy in their faces.” Patricia said she bakes more than 300 cookies for the students. “I bake enough so that everyone gets at least two cookies,” she said. “The students are so appreciative. It takes about three hours to bake everything. I have had people volunteer to help me but I enjoy it. I make chocolate oatmeal cookies with no nuts.” The DeForests mentor, too. Both of the students the couple mentor – Faith Spencer, 13, and Mikey Barrett, 13, said they remember their visit to the farm as part of Pen Pals. “It was cool,” Spencer said. “We ate
cookies and had punch. We saw and petted animals. I liked the goats and baby chicks.” Mikey said it was a lot of fun and a learning experience for his pen pals. “I live a couple of miles away from the DeForests and I visited the farm all of the time,” Barrett said. “The other kids had never seen anything like it. We had cookies and punch. Everyone had fun seeing all the animals.” Both said they stayed in touch with their pen pals throughout their second grade year but lost touch soon after. For the DeForests, they look at the experience as an extension of their own family. “The way we look at it, we have a lot of kids.” And, the proof to that belief came two years ago on the DeForests’ 50th Anniversary celebration. The school offered a card for any student to sign to honor the couple on the special anniversary. “There were 189 student signatures on that card,” Lloyd said. “We had an impact on the kids – they remembered us. We have a lot of good kids – both here and in Omaha. We get to see the good in the kids. They remembered us – and they wanted to sign.” What better lesson is there in life?

The Woodbine Twiner
From Daughter to Father, with love From LOVE Page 1 was ruled out on the third round of tests. I redid the test and was then accepted as a donor.” Jona said the surgery is much simpler than it used to be. Today, she said, doctors use laparoscopic surgery. “It is laparoscopic surgery with hand assist,” she said. “They will make two small incisions on the left side near the rib cage area. One will allow the doctors to insert a camera and the other will be used to remove the kidney from its attachments. Then, they will make a small incision below the belly button, and take the left kidney out in a plastic bag. The kidney will then be transplanted into my dad’s right side.” Jona said the operation is a small price to pay to help her dad. “I will only be in the hospital for a couple of days following the surgery,” Jona said. “Scarring will be minimal and small price to pay. The first couple of weeks, I will be off of work and recuperating at home before going back to work. Before agreeing to
the surgery, Jona had a heart-to-heart talk with her 12-year-old son, Evan, and her husband, Brian. “Evan and I are very close,” she said. “He is being brave about it. He would rather I wouldn’t do the operation, but he understand. Brian is worried, of course, but very supportive. It is truly a family decision.” Brian said he is very proud of his wife. "I support Jona and am proud of her more than anything,” Brian said. “It's fully within her character to donate. If it were me, I think I would do the same for one of my parents." The worst part of the whole experience in Jona’s mind in the six weeks she will not be able to enjoy her favorite hobby – running. “I enjoy running and I won’t be able to do that for six weeks,” she said. “I will go for walks along my usual route. I have five real close friends, all 1992 graduates of Woodbine High School, and we always do the Race for the Cure in Omaha.” Jona said her motherin-law, Linda Williams, 2050 Ross Trial,
Woodbine, will stay with her family while she is recuperating. In an interesting wrinkle to this story, Linda also tested to be a donor and she, too, was a good match for Jon. In addition to donating the kidney to her father, Jona said she also is participating in a study to test a new drug that holds promise in limiting rejection of the donor kidney to the patient. “I have been participating in this study and am taking this drug for two weeks before surgery,” she said. “I may pass a virus to my dad that could make him sick because the antirejection drugs he will be on will suppress his immune system. I think it’s because he does not have the antibodies to some of the viruses I may pass along.” Jona said the surgery itself will be an all day event. “We will be at the hospital the day before the surgery for testing,” she said. “We report to the hospital at 5 a.m. on April 27. My surgery will take about three or four hours.” The father/daughter
team will have their surgery at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Minneapolis. Jon Boyce, 66, said his advice to people is to seek medical help early and not to put it off. “My condition built up over time,” Jon said. “I would advise everyone not to wait. If you have health issues, it is better to go in and see the doctor. Don’t ignore the warning signs.” For Jon, the warning signs included not being able to keep food or liquids down. He said he is happy his daughter is able to donate. “I’m glad she can do it,” he said. “Not everyone is as good a match.“ Jon said his surgery will last from three to five hours and it will take three to five days in the hospital before he can return home. He takes the surgery in the same calm, matter-offact manner his Jona does. “Am I anxious or scared? No,” he said. “It is just something we have to do.” Jon said his wife, Doris, is anxious to get the surgery over with. “She just wants it to
be done,” he said. “She is more apprehensive than the two of us. The world of medicine is amazing today. This operation is minor compared to some other procedures.” Dialysis will be one part of his life today that Jon will not miss once he recuperates from the transplant. “I get up at 6:15 a.m. three times a week to go to dialysis,” he said. “The treatment takes about three hours. I will miss all of the people I have met; it is usually the same four people here. You get to know them all well. I will miss them.” The first thing Jon said he plans to do after he recovers is dump his renal diet and enjoy food again. “I want a pizza,” he said. “It’s going to be like, ‘Hey, Dominoes!’ It has been two years since I have been able to enjoy a pizza. I can’t wait to get to a Pizza Hut. On the renal diet, you can eat all the protein you want, you get a half-cup of vegetables and a half-cup of milk but no cheese and you have to keep track of your sodium. I won’t miss that.”
Jon said following surgery he will just have different medications to take but he will be able to enjoy life more. “You are limited in what you can do and where you can go when you are on dialysis,” he said. “Soon, I will be free to live life fully.” Linda Williams, Jona’s mother-in-law, is requesting a Card Shower for both Jona and her dad, Jon – both long-time Woodbine residents.
