Understanding SF 2379 NIKKI DAVIS Editor Over 600 Harrison County residents will soon be affected by new license to carry concealed laws, defined in SF 2379, becoming effective Jan. 1, 2011. Unfortunately, the definitions in SF 2379 are broad, leaving many questions, some without answers. However, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department is prepared for SF 2379, which will allow licensed carriers to hold their license for five years as opposed to one, no matter how broad the definitions are listed in

the new laws. One new requirement is for all holders to take a firearms safety class. How long is this class? “The legislature didn’t spell that out,” Harrison County Deputy and Firearms Safety Instructor Jeff Killpack said. “Only who teaches the class is spelled out – anyone recognized by the legislator as a firearms safety instructor such as an NRA instructor or


Department of Public Safety Instructor. They also didn’t spell out what the class needs to entail.” To summarize a few more important aspects See SF 2379 Page 6


‘Music of the Season’

Leana Goodrich has been busy preparing an annual Christmas, musical play, but things will be slightly different this year. As always, Leana wrote the 2010 Christmas play, Angels Around Them, as well as three of the songs that will be performed throughout the play. But this year, it’s not just local family and friends in the play. Instead, Leana is working towards a dream – making The Watering Rock ministry a reality. “It’s a dream God put in my heart a long time ago,” she said. “It’s an idea for basically what we’re doing. This play is basically its launch. It’s a Christian Musical Theater group where I can do some of the productions God has given me.” The Watering Rock’s launch of

Angels Around Them will feature a cast of characters from Woodbine, as well as Walnut. The play focuses around a teenage girl, whose family is living in their vehicle due to the economy and the loss of her parents’ jobs. The teenager’s struggle seeking help from a God she can not see and doubt of his existence is the main focus of the play. The play follows her through her journey as she meets a family currently enjoying the luxuries of life – such as a home, food and heat. The more fortunate of the families catches the children rummaging through the garbage. One of the fortunate teenagers asks that an angel be sent to help the struggling family. Fortunately, the play has a happy ending. The cast of characters includes: Jill, the struggling teenager (Hannah Goodrich, Woodbine); Jenny, Jill’s See ANGELS Page 6

Finding a Winter Wonderland

It was under the direction of First National Bank Owner Herb Swedburg the state of the art, animated Christmas decorations were first displayed ... in 1971. The decorations, mostly electronic, moved while spectators watched. The bank was turned into a winter wonderland. “We would always decorate for Christmas,” former bank employee Lois Navrude said. She worked at the bank from 1983 to 2008 even through several changes of hands. “I remember we had these fancy balls and garland everywhere and then Herb Swedburg would come in and cover everything with that canned, spray snow.” Navrude remembers kindergarten through third grade students visiting the bank after they decorated the town Christmas tree. The animated decorations were a sight to behold and Lois remembers handing out goodie bags to the See WONDERLAND Page 6

“A newspaper is a circulating library with high blood pressure.” ~Arthur Baer


‘Twas three weeks before Christmas


was three weeks before Christmas, and all through the town people were scurrying and running around. Christmas lights hung from each business with care, twinkling and blinking for all who were there. The children were dressed in their coats, boots and cap waiting for their turn upon Santa’s lap. When down the street there arose such a clatter the Golden Age Center was lined with Christmas goodies platter to platter. All kinds of treats to pick up and gather. The treats they did flow. With so much sugar the room was aglow. The moon as it rose shown down from above a wonderous sight on the Carson-Clark lawn of those who made chili – a passion, a love. The people all gathered to taste and to vote on the chili they tried as it warmed down their throat. When what to my wondering eyes should appear but a lighted parade with bright lights and good cheer! It made for a merry sight for all to see as it went ‘round the city Christmas tree. Decorated with beautiful ornaments the children did make and lights of all colors so much to partake. On to the bonfire with hot chocolate and marshmallows, on to the company of so many happy, good fellows. On to the stores open with gifts and bargains for all. Now stash away, stash away, stash away all the money I saved shopping downtown and at the gift mall. Driving down Lincolnway and heading for home, I exclaimed to myself as I drove out of sight what a fun-filled event (Woodbine’s ‘Bright Lights, Little City’ Dec. 4), what a wonderful night.

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

Poachers are chickens


sn’t funny that as our lives change, our vision of life changes with it? It’s been a rough year at the Davis household, I can not lie. The hard economy has taken it’s toll … but with Thanksgiving just behind us, I can tell you we still have plenty to be thankful for. Sometimes I think I lose my perspective on that. Now I have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head. Or maybe candy canes. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a sugar plum and don’t know how willing I would be to try one. But again – my vision has changed. While I’m not overly thrilled to celebrate Christmas and feel sometimes like I can’t get into the Christmas spirit … I had to laugh at myself. While whining to my husband (yes … I do this a lot), I mentioned that I just really wasn’t feeling the Christmas spirit. He told me he wasn’t, either, but we would be OK. It had to have been five or 10 minutes later when our conversation turned towards hunting. I decided if there was ever a year to try my hand at the sport, this would be it. I mean, I took that hunter’s safety course years ago and have purchased but a single pheasant hunting license since. I’ve always wanted to deer hunt – but will admit I still have “Bambi issues,” as my husband lovingly calls them. However – we could use the meat this year. Therefore, it seems more justified in my mind. Strange, I know. And still – not the point. It was during this conversation that it dawned on me … “We can’t go to my cousin’s place this weekend!” I exclaimed it with so much force, it earned me a dirty look and an eyebrow raise. “Why?!” I could tell he was quite upset. After all, we had been talking about going to the Behney’s place for about a month! “I have to take Eva to see Santa!” This was all I could muster. My husband chuckled at me and rolled his eyes.


“Not in the Christmas spirit, huh?” I pondered that for a moment. I can’t go out of town to go hunting because this weekend is Woodbine’s ‘Bright Light, Little City,’ and I want Eva to be here. I couldn’t really ask for more … I will be surrounded by friends – and friends so close, I feel like they’re family. Eva and I can watch the lighted parade and she can see Santa! She can be awed by the sights that fill our head full of sugar plums and begin her own love of the holiday spirit. So my perspective of what is now referred to as “The Holidays” has changed. I’m no longer excited to open presents and hunt for gifts hidden at my parent’s house. I’m excited to watch Eva play with the cardboard boxes her presents come in. I’m excited to see her decorate sugar cookies and play with the frosting. I’m excited to see her reactions to Christmas carolers celebrating the birth of Christ in song. I want to catch every detail … every blink. Every present. Every smile. Every tear. (I hear a lot of them cry when they see Santa this little.) Every coo. Every word. (Limited to “shoe-shoes,” “cat,” “hot,” “dada” and “mamamamamama” right now.) Every giggle. Every facial expression. What a giggly, warm, fuzzy feeling that gives me. Thinking about my little (spoiled rotten) angel at Christmas. About capturing those memories. Lucky me. I’m willing to bet I have a camera with me Saturday. If you see me, though … please remind me to take pictures of more than just Eva! Sometimes my vision doesn’t only change … it gets cloudy!

Thanksgiving thoughts


he idea of celebrating the end of the growing season is one that crosses cultures throughout history. And it is a healthy thing all in all. Although the turkey and gravy is a fond memory and Black Friday has passed as this is published, let me recount several thankful things this year for both the area and for me personally. First, the weather this year was certainly a challenge. Generally speaking, I hear that crops in the hills did quite well, while some of the lower bottomland crops got slammed by excessive water in the early summer. But for those water stressed crops, think for a moment about the improvements that crop

breeders, equipment designers, and pest managers have given us through the years that mitigated what could have been even more disastrous. As the season ended, we did have a solid stretch of dry weather that allowed for great in-field grain drying and timely harvest. A good thing to be thankful about. Another good thing is that we are entering the winter with soil moisture in fairly good shape. That is favorable for getting the 2011 crop off to a good start when spring comes. Crop prices have been supported by adverse crop conditions in other parts of the world. Of course that is a mixed blessing; if you are buying livestock feed or run-

EXTENSION OFFICE RICHARD POPE Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator ning an ethanol plant, that means higher costs, but that is how the farm economy works. Another thing to say thanks for is that even with the heavy rains, we mostly escaped major flooding events. Iowans typically respond well to disasters with the community coming together, but it is nice to not need to deal with bad events, and that was generally true in 2010. On a personal note, I am thankful for two things. First, my move to western Iowa has

been a blessing. I work with people I like, doing things that are intriguing (mostly!) and have met some great folks. The second is that I am thankful for being near for the last year of my mother’s life. She died the first week of November, and I am able to look back over my life in remembering her. And I smile!

The Woodbine Twiner

December 1, 2010

Church Museum of Religious Arts celebrates 10th anniversary MARY DARLING For The Twiner The Museum of Religious Arts, one of Paul Lovell’s projects, is marking its 10th anniversary this year, first opening in October of 2000. According to President Kris Haase, Lovell, who passed away in 2007, was surprised himself at how it grew. “He was just blown away,” Haase said. The idea for the museum came to Lovell when he and his wife Helen attended a church service in a modern Catholic Church in Minnesota. They realized how much church history was being lost from the old churches. Thus began Lovell’s quest to save, preserve and display religious arts, tradition and culture. He began his collection and then needed a building to house it. Ground was broken

for the museum in October of 1997. Located off U.S. Highway 30 between Logan and Missouri Valley, the 20,000 square foot structure sits on 11.5 acres with a view of the Loess Hills countryside. The museum houses the Midwest’s largest collection of religious artifacts including a replica of an early Southwest style mission chapel, a library, theatre, gift shop and the highlight, the “King of Kings” exhibit. The series of life-size wax figures depicts the life of Christ in nine detailed displays. Haase, also an artist, restored the figures to their present state. She has been at the museum since it’s inception. Rhonda McHugh, assistant director, has been at the museum for nine years and she and Haase said they wish they had a quarter for the

number of times people have said to them, “Why didn’t I stop in sooner?” The original cost of the museum, estimated at $600,000 to $700,000, was paid for through donations, grants and loans. Since it opened its doors, the museum has added many new exhibits and events including: • An exhibit by child artist, Akiane Kramarik. She was only 11 years old on her first visit in 2005. By then she had already created masterpieces in both poetry and realist paintings and had been a guest on many television shows. • Project Moses: Ten Commandments. It showcases the Ten Commandments on a tablet engraved on sandcolored marble straight from Mount Sinai. • Crosses on the Hill. This is the museum’s largest outdoor display. A handicapped accessible

sidewalk to the crosses was completed in 2008. • Holocaust Display. This includes several charcoal drawings by George Zielezinski, a prisoner during the Holocaust. • Stained glass windows. The stained glass windows at the entrance are more than 100 years old and from Italy. • Jesus Walking on the Water. This outdoor display is open weather permitting in the spring, summer and fall. A popular event added in the past several years is the “Reason for the Season” celebration that began Nov. 7 and will run through Jan. 30 this year. It features 60, uniquely decorated Christmas trees, more than 400 nativity scenes from all over the world and more than 75 Santa Claus and St. Nicholas figurines on display throughout the museum.

This year a memorial tree has also been added in which you can purchase a bulb in memory of a loved one to hang on the tree. Other plans for the coming year, according to Haase, is an “extraordinary art exhibit in April. There is nothing like it around this area. It will be here for only two weeks.” They also plan on having a cookie jar exhibit around Mother’s Day weekend with cookies, of course, and cookie cookbooks. Since the museum opened its doors 10 years ago, it has seen visitors from all 50 states and more than 25 counties pass through including Australia, Ethiopia and Kenya with many making a return trip they said. Last March LeeAnn Clark was hired as the new director and has been wonderful, Haase said.

The museum, according to Haase, has become her second passion. “I feel at home here and feel connected with the art. I don’t know if words can describe it. It’s now part of my skin and always will be,” Haase said.

Carmon’s love for life, God, family and friends was contagious. Carmon loved to garden and her green thumb was amazing especially with her love for African Violets. She was a cancer survivor since 1987 and has been active in cancer awareness groups. Carmon was preceded in death by her husband, Charles; two sisters, Velma Higgins and Ethel Rees; and two brothers, infant Eugene and Glenn Graves. She is survived by her son, Wells (Carolyn) Adams of Ames; daughter, Nancy

(Frank) Gage of Gladstone, Mo.; grandchildren and great grandchildren, Gale (Adams) and Ryan Geherling and Olivia and Jasmine, Wells Eugene (Geno) and Niki Adams and Hadley, Angela (Gage) and Matt Rueter and Emma and Isaac, Adam Gage and partner Rob May; and other relatives and friends.

Musicians were Bob Smith and Phil Lubbers with selections “In The Garden” and “How Great Thou Art.” Pall bearers were Keith Adams, Terry Adams, Donald Clark, Donald Kelley, Randall Pryor and Ron Young. Carmon Lucille (Graves) Adams was born Sept. 17, 1915, to Newton and Myrtle (Pryor) Graves in Dunlap. She died on Thur., Nov. 25, 2010, Thanksgiving Day, at the

Rose Vista Nursing Home in Woodbine, at the age of 95 years, two months and eight days. Carmon graduated from Dunlap High School in 1933. She then attended a summer teacher’s program in Shenandoah. After receiving her teacher’s certificate she taught country school for nine years. On May 18, 1942, Carmon married Charles Hatcher Adams, Jr. in Omaha, Neb. The couple spent the next 34 years farming in the Woodbine area. In 1976 after retiring from farming the couple moved into Woodbine. Charles died suddenly in May of 1977.

In the early 1970s Carmon worked at Dupree Variety, Bro Variety and then Countryside Timekeeper. Carmon retired reluctantly as her health declined. She moved to the Woodland Apartments in 1993 and became a resident of Rose Vista Nursing Home in 2010. Carmon was a member of the Christian Church, holding many offices in the Women’s Fellowship. She loved having family gatherings, with her last outing at the Adams/Burch Reunion in Logan in September to celebrate her 95 birthday.

Ballots must be returned by mail or delivered to the Harrison County FSA office by Dec. 6. “I strongly recommend that producers vote because the county committee members play a huge role in the Agency,” Warmbier said. Voters in Local Administrative Area #3, representing Cincinnati, St. John, La Grange, Union, Washington and Cass, received ballots for this year’s election. County committee members are elected to office

by their peers and serve as the representative voice for agriculture producers in the county, and they are responsible for communicating with USDA to ensure national programs are adapted to fit local needs. County committees are responsible for making decisions on issues including commodity loans and payments, conservation programs, disaster assistance programs and emergency programs. Warmbier encourages minority and female producers to serve as county committee members in the future. Farmers who participate in FSA programs are eligible to vote. If eligible voters do not receive a ballot by mail, one will be provided by the Harrison

County FSA Office. Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked no later than Dec. 6. New county committee members will assume their role and related responsibilities on Jan. 1, 2011. For more information on the ballots, please contact the Harrison County FSA office or the Web site at http://www.

Four arrested outside of Dunlap after TIP call ServSafe class Jan. 13/20 A TIP call regarding a vehicle spotlighting led to the arrest of four area men from Audubon. On Nov. 18, the men were arrested for numerous fish and game violations stretching from Audubon County to Harrison County. Iowa Conservation Officers followed up on a TIP call from a rural landowner describing a vehicle that was spotlighting. Conservation officers were able to locate the vehicle after receiving another TIP call regarding rifle shots being fired from the same described vehicle. It is illegal to hunt with artificial light and shoot from a vehicle in the State of Iowa. The suspect vehicle was located south of Dunlap in rural Harrison County. Christopher Groninga, 20 yrs. old, from Audubon was charged in Harrison County with one count of hunting by artificial light and one count of not having a fur harvester license. Additional charges were filed in Audubon County for two counts of illegal method of take along with civil

damages for illegally taking raccoons. Michael Sonntag, 19, from Audubon, was charged in Harrison County with one count of hunting by artificial light and one count of loaded gun in a motor vehicle. Additional charges were filed in Audubon County of hunting by artificial light, failure to harvest report a deer, shooting a rifle from the roadway, abandonment of wildlife, hunting without a license and illegal method of take hunting deer with a rifle along with civil damages for illegally taking raccoons and a deer. Two additional suspects were charged in Audubon County based on this investigation and TIP information received. Scott Downer, 19, from Audubon, was charged with two counts of illegal method of take, one count each of no fur harvester license, hunting by artificial light and abandonment of wildlife in addition to civil damages for wildlife taken

illegally. Benjamin Peterson, 18, from Audubon, was charged with one count each of no fur harvester license, hunting by artificial light, illegal method of take and no habitat fee in addition to civil damages for wildlife taken illegally. Iowa Conservation Officers seized three 22 caliber rifles, five spotlights, 48 traps and a set of antlers. A total of 73 raccoon and two deer were killed illegally. The four individuals face total fines of $2,795.25 plus civil damages of $7,100. Additionally, all four face suspension of their hunting and fishing privileges in Iowa and 30 other states along with forfeiture of their equipment. The public is encouraged to contact the TIP hotline (Turn In Poachers) at 800-532-2020 or your local Conservation Officer if you witness a fish and game violation. Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward if the tip leads to an arrest.

Jay Randall to perform at The Museum of Religious Arts

Jay Randall

Jay Randall will be performing for the “Reason for the Season” annual event at the Museum of Religious Arts at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 5. Randall, by day, is the president and CEO for the Community Bank and, by night, is sharing his gift of an unbelievable singing voice. “The first time we heard Jay we stopped in our tracks and had to investigate where this spectacular sound was coming from,”

Assistant Museum Director Rhonda McHugh said. Randall will help celebrate one of the MRA’s largest, annual events, the Reason for the Season. There are almost 60 trees theme decorated by groups, businesses or organizations and are, once again, over 400 nativities on display from all over the world. The nativities display started with only seven different scenes. As the word spread, the nativity scene collec-

tion expanded. By the following year, 200 more were loaned to the museum. “Of course this grew to where we are today and it is truly an awesome display for the holidays,” Museum Board Director Kris Haase said. The annual event has grown so popular, the board decided to extend the exhibit into January. There is a minimal fee to see the museum and vote for your

favorite tree by placing dollar donations in the box. These are split 50/50, with half going to the museum and half going to the decorators. “People come from miles around to see the Reason for the Season, the museum’s biggest event of the year,” Museum Director LeeAnn Clark said. Admittance for Randall’s performance on Dec. 5 will cost $10 each person or $8 with a food pantry donation.

MRA hours are: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tu e s d a y - S a t u rd a y ; noon to four, Sunday; and closed on Monday. The Museum of Religious Arts will be closed Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day. It is recommended to call ahead on poor weather days to be sure someone is available to open MRA. Please contact us at 712-644-3888 or visit us online at www.mrarts .org for more information.

Two men arrested after TIP call A Thanksgiving feast Two area men from Harlan and Walnut were charged with numerous fish and game violations Nov. 20 in Harlan. The investigation started when an Iowa Conservation Officer received a TIP call from a bow hunter reporting hearing two rifle shots near Corley. The bow hunter reported the license plate and description of the suspect vehicle. Iowa Conservation Officers went to the registered owner ’s address and spoke with the occupants. While at the residence Conservation Officers seized a 30-06 rifle, one buck deer, one buck deer head, a freezer full of deer meat along with a Browning Bow. Additionally, Conservation Officers observed drugs and drug paraphernalia while at the residence.

Harlan Police Officers arrived and obtained a search warrant for the residence. Gregory J Storjohann, 36, from Walnut, was charged with one count each of shooting rifle over the highway, illegally attempting to take a deer, loaded gun in motor vehicle, no valid deer tag, no valid hunting license and illegal method of take, taking deer with a rifle. Timothy T Sorensen, 39, from Harlan was charged with one count each of loaded gun in motor vehicle, no valid deer license and illegal method of take, taking a deer with rifle. If convicted of these charges Storjohann faces $730 in fines plus $4,000 for illegally taking buck deer with a rifle. Sorensen faces $450 in fines plus $4,000 for illegally taking a buck deer with a rifle.

Additionally, both men face suspension of their hunting and fishing privileges in Iowa and 30 other states along with forfeiture of their equipment. Also assisting in the investigation were Iowa Conservation Officers from Shelby, Carroll, Audubon and Mills Counties along with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department. The public is encouraged to contact the TIP hotline (Turn In Poachers) at 800-5322020 or your local Conservation Officer if you witness a fish and game violation.

‘Angels Around Them’ begins Dec. 5 Understanding From ANGELS Page 1 sister (Heidi Goodrich, Woodbine); Josiah, Jill’s brother (D.J. Jenkins, Walnut); Jill’s mom (Leana Goodrich, Woodbine); Katie, the older sister from the fortunate family (Michelle Palm, Walnut); Melany, the younger sister from the fortunate family (Shelby Doyel, Woodbine); Angel (Lynn Goodrich, Woodbine); and the Store Clerk and stage manager (Carolyn

Navrude, Woodbine). Daniel Willis, of Woodbine, will serve as the play’s tech advisor. Another difference between the annual plays from the past is location and the date. As part of The Watering Rock dream, the show will be performed multiple times at various locations. The first of these performances will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 5 at Lifeline Church, Dunlap. Others

include: 7 p.m. Dec. 10 at Angels on Wheels homeless ministry in Omaha, Neb.; 7 p.m. Dec. 15, Sacred Heart Parish Center, Woodbine; 7 p.m. Dec. 18 at the Missouri Valley Christian Church. Two more performances may be added at a later date, possibly in Harlan and Council Bluffs. There is no charge to watch the performance and all performances are open to the public. Leana would like to encourage

a specific group to attend – especially in Woodbine. “Since we are performing in Woodbine on a Wednesday night, we would really like to extend an invitation to all the youth groups because the play focuses on teenagers and how to reach out for help,” she said. “And it teaches you how to deal with bad situations,” Hannah added.

Finding the Winter Wonderland FromWONDERLANDPage1 students. Navrude also remembers the lobby being wide and open – not like it is today. After the remodel in the early 1990’s, the high ceilinged lobby was transformed. Even when Herb Swedberg’s son, Kenner Swedberg, took over the bank operations, the animated decorations were still proudly displayed. But when the bank went under in 1985, that was the end of the bank’s winter wonderland.

Iowa KidsNet to host Logan man dies in Thanksgiving accident foster care and adoption A Logan man died early Nov. 25 in a onevehicle accident near Magnolia. Colton R. Bertelson, 22, was killed when the pick-up truck he was driving crashed on Highway 127 between Magnolia and Logan, the Iowa State Patrol said. The accident occurred just after 5 a.m. According to the State Patrol, the truck

was traveling southeast on Highway 127 and failed to negotiate a curve. The truck left the roadway and partially entered a ditch, and the driver lost control. The vehicle slid across the highway and through an intersection before sliding into a farm field where it rolled, ejecting the driver, according to the initial accident report.

information session Iowa KidsNet, the statewide organization that recruits, trains, licenses and supports Iowa’s foster and adoptive families, will hold an information session in Council Bluffs on Dec. 14 for individuals interested in becoming foster or adoptive parents. Foster care is the temporary placement of children with families outside of their own home due to abuse, neglect or other family crisis situations. The goal is for loving families to provide children with a safe, stable and nurturing environment. There is no typical foster family – foster families can be single, married, homeowners or renters and can come from all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. This information session gives attendees a basic overview of the process involved in foster care and adoption and an understanding of the characteristics of children in the child welfare system. There is no obligation to continue in the process by attending. In 2009, the average number of Iowa children in foster care, shelter care or a highly struc-

tured group care placement in any given month was nearly 3,400 children. To register for an upcoming information session or to learn more, call Iowa KidsNet at 800-243-0756 or visit to see future session dates. Registrants will receive an information packet to fill out before attending the session. Iowa KidsNet is a statewide collaboration of agencies that utilizes a unique, cohesive approach to provide recruitment, training, licensing and continued support to individuals who wish to become foster and adoptive parents. Iowa KidsNet is a partnership of six Iowa social service agencies, including Four Oaks, Boys and Girls Home and Family Services, Children’s Square USA/Child Connect, Family Resources, Lutheran Services in Iowa and Quakerdale.

SF 2379 From SF 2379 Page 1 of the new SF 2379, there are a few major points license to carry concealed holders should note. Within 30 days of the expiration date of the license, carriers must complete a course by one of the certified instructors. If a license is up for renewal in December of 2010, and it is renewed without a lapse, the renewal will be valid until December of 2011. However, 30 days prior to the expiration date, one of the certified training classes must be completed. “If someone comes in on Dec. 1, 2010 and renews, their permit will be valid for one year and no class will be necessary because they are renewing under the current laws. After that, they will be required to renew in 2011 at least 30 day prior to the expiration of their current license, take a weapons safety class and be given a new, five year permit. To simplify, all persons holding a current permit to carry who renew in 2011 will be required to take the renewal class, which the state says is to be a weapons safety class,” Killpack said. That could get complicated, considering Harrison County has formerly held the highest per capita license to carry number in the state of Iowa. “We currently teach these classes a few times a year, but realize there will be 600 people who need to complete the course next year,” Killpack said. “As of now, we’re anticipating that and may pick two days each month to hold these classes. We haven’t decided on these dates yet, but as long as they come in 30 days or more before their license expires, they should be set by then.” Killpack doesn’t anticipate the cost of the class rising over the $40 currently charged, although that has not been decided at this point. The classes offered will basically be a portion of the four-hour long class Killpack already teaches and will most likely last approximately an hour. But there is another option. “An option of attending a live fire training day will be offered in lieu of the class,” Killpack said. Secondly, the fee to renew the license, in essence, has not necessarily increased – it has just been extended to a five year period. “Right now, licenses are $5 for one year. Beginning in 2011, the cost is $25, but that’s over a five year period, so it’s still only $5 a year,” Killpack pointed out. If you’re not renewing, but applying for a license for the first time, the cost is $50, plus the cost of the course. Third, the new SF 2379 allows carriers to carry, “Old West Style,” or not concealed. And this is applicable in a new place, as well – in places serving alcohol. But Killpack was quick to point out neither is recommended because county laws still trump state laws. “We’ll still follow the operating while intoxicated 321 J code,” Killpack said. “That means people can not be intoxicated and carry a weapon. And although the legal limit for driving is a .08, there is no actual number for conceal carry. For some people that might be only two beers.” Another change, probably affecting local law authorities more than residents, is the recognition of all other states’ permits to carry concealed. “Iowa has been a no reciprocity state. That means we didn’t accept licenses from other states,” Killpack said. “But now we recognize everybody’s. After Jan. 1, if you have a permit from any other state and you’re following all other Iowa laws, we will recognize them.” But Killpack doesn’t think even that will add much extra work on the Harrison County’s Sheriff’s Department. “Other than arranging classes for over 600 people per year every five years, the law enforcement work is not that big of a deal,” he said. “I think it’s going to be more of sorting out the mess after the fact. It may take extra time to verify permits from other states, but we don’t even run across that much now.” On somewhat of a side note, the sheriff’s department is also considering a more “driver’s license” style of license as opposed to a single piece of paper. “We’re working on it now,” Killpack said. “Keeping a piece of paper in good condition for five years might be difficult. We’d like to offer hard licenses for a fee. But we have not confirmed anything at this point.” All in all, even law enforcement officers continue to try to work out and understand the new, somewhat vague laws of SF 2379. “I hope as time passes the transition in the new law will become more fluid for the public and for us as we remain flexible enough to keep up with these types of changes in Iowa law,” Killpack said. More information is available on the Iowa Department of Public Safety’s Web site at and the law itself may be viewed at If internet access is unavailable, please contact the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department at 712-644-2244.

Community Sign up early for CSP Beef Checkoff programs The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is accepting new applications for the C o n s e r v a t i o n Stewardship Program. Landowners may sign applications at any time under the continuous signup. However, those applications received by Jan. 7, 2011 will be considered for contracts in the next ranking period. CSP is a voluntary program that encourages agricultural producers to maintain existing conservation activities and adopt additional ones on their operations. The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill) authorizes CSP, which is available to all farmers nationwide.

Eligible lands include cropland, grassland, prairie, improved pastureland, and non-industrial private forestland. Eligible applicants are operators who actively work the land. Although CSP is a continuous signup program, agricultural and forestry producers must submit applications to be considered for the next round of funding. Lane Collins, Harrison County District Conservationist with the NRCS, encourages interested farmers to apply early to be considered for funding. Applications and more information is available at the NRCS office in the USDA Service Center at 2710 Hwy. 127 in Logan,

phone, 712-644-2210. Potential participants can use a self-screening checklist first to determine whether the new program is suitable for them or their operation. The checklist and other information is available online at grams/new_csp/ ml and at the local NRCS field office. USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender. To file a complaint of discrimination, write: USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, 1400 Independence Ave., S.W., Washington, D.C. 202509410 or call 800-795-3272 (voice) or 202-720-6382 (TDD).

The beef checkoff-funded Iowa Beef Quality Assurance program is bringing Curt Pate back to Iowa the week of Dec. 13. The tour will be in this area at the Armstrong Research Farm near Lewis from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 15. “The Stockmanship & Stewardship Tour” travels the country and uses live cattle – handling demos to inform cattlemen about the importance and benefits of proper cattle handling – and its critical role in increasing consumer confidence in beef. The tour includes special, hands-on training sessions at livestock auction markets and other venues where cattle producers meet to discuss improved stockmanship methods, as well as

the pivotal role producers play in sustaining beef quality for consumers. Brian Waddingham, director of industry relations for the Iowa Beef Industry Council, will also be participating in these programs. He will be discussing the tools available for cattlemen to improve animal care and well-being on the farm. Joe Sellers, Iowa State University Extension Livestock Program Specialist, will discuss disposition scoring and the impact of cattle temperament on cattle performance and carcass quality. Darrell Busby of the Tri County Steer Carcass Futurity will review TCSCF data on the impact of cattle disposition on feedlot performance and carcass quali-

ty at the Armstrong farm location. Curt Pate will discuss the best handling practices while unloading livestock, sorting them, bringing them into working facility and loading them to leave the farm. Busby will speak about disposition scoring and the impact of cattle temperament on cattle performance and carcass quality. Waddingham will be discussing the tools available for cattlemen to improve animal care and well-being on the farm. Please RSVPby Dec. 13 to help with meal plans by contacting the Armstrong Farm at 712-769-2600, Brian Waddingham at 515-2962305 or Clint McDonald at 712-355-1034 for more information.

Caleta Buena in Denison serves up unique seafood dishes EMMA STRUVE For The Twiner Caleta Buena, Good Harbor, welcomes seafood connoisseurs and skeptics alike to experience energetic executive chef and owner Jamie Ludena’s original creations. Ludena opened the business for taste testing about six months ago. He plans to operate the family-style restaurant from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. “I had another restaurant a long time ago in another country,” Ludena said. “I learned a long time ago to process seafood – scallops, snails, squid, tuna.” He was also involved in the commercial fishing trade as well as worked under a professional chef. “I’ve always thought about opening a restaurant because I know fish,” he added. It is important, too, Ludena

said, to know what people like and how to prepare unusual fish. When asked what is special about his eatery, Ludena answered simply, “quality;” quality in freshness of the seafood, quality of preparation in seasoning and flavoring, and quality in attention to guests’ needs. Ludena said he makes a special point to visit each table and explain the menu and advise patrons about the dishes’ preparations. “Here I do different types of dishes and flavors,” he stated. In addition to Ludena, Caleta Buena employs two other kitchen staff and two servers. Ludena said he plans to add more staff as needed once the business grows. “All guests have to be happy with the prices and the food,” Ludena insisted. When selecting items

for the menu, Ludena said he tried to balance the preference of people in the Midwest who may not like strong flavors – either seasoning or fish – with Hispanic preparation, which may be stronger, spicier. On a scale of one to 10, many of the menu items are a five, he said. However, exotic items, including special preparations, are available and may be customized to taste. Much of Caleta Buena’s product comes from the east coast by way of Omaha and includes shark, halibut, sea bass, red snapper, lobster, king crab, snow crab, snails, squid, calamari, octopus, oysters, scallops and salmon. “My favorite dish to prepare is when people say, ‘Jamie bring me whatever you want, surprise me,’” Ludena said. “I go to the kitchen…and I work like Picasso.” Working with food he compared to painting, he said you figure out the end product as you go. “I like when people come in and say ‘It’s amazing, I’ve never

It is very important to Ludena that customers enjoy their food. “I can’t take money from people who don’t like their food,” he stated. Ludena made a point to note Caleta Buena also serves pork, chicken and beef as well as pasta. “Many people say, ‘I

don’t like fish,’ but they probably had it somewhere it was not cooked well,” Ludena said. “Don’t be scared, come and try it.” Caleta Buena also has a large room that can seat up to 50 for parties; the restaurant accepts reservations and can provide gift certificates.

Upcoming blood drive It is the season and everyone’s searching for the perfect gift that doesn’t break the bank. This perfect gift can be found without stepping foot into the mall, placing an order online or spending a dime. Give the gift of life this holiday season by donating blood through the American Red Cross. It only takes about an hour to donate blood, and in that hour, you can give patients in need a gift that will be treas-

ured for years to come. The need for blood doesn’t pause for the holidays. By taking time to donate this winter, you can help the Red Cross ensure a stable blood supply for all patients who need blood products. The next blood drive coming to Woodbine will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Dec. 15. Contact Linda Morrison at 647-2404 to schedule an appointment.

Community HCHPH offers tips for enjoying a safe winter A lot was learned last year during the severe winter weather we faced. Living in the Midwest, we are likely to face some type of severe winter weather during the winter season. That could mean snow or subfreezing temperatures, as well as strong winds or even ice or heavy rainstorms. One of the primary concerns is winter weather’s ability to knock out heat, power and communication systems for days at a time to your home or office. The National Weather Service refers to winter storms as “deceptive killers” because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. Instead, people die in traffic accidents on icy roads and of hypothermia from prolonged exposure to the cold. It is important to be prepared for winter weather before it strikes. Step 1: Get a Kit Get an Emergency Supply Kit that includes items like non-perishable food, weather, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights, and batteries. Thoroughly check and update your family’s emergency supply kit before winter approaches and add the following supplies in preparation for winter weather: rock salt to melt ice on sidewalks and driveways, sand to improve traction, snow shovels, other snow removal tools and also

include adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm. Step 2: Make a Plan Make a Family Emergency Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of emergency. Identify places where your family will meet, both inside and outside of the immediate area. Keep in mind: it may be easier to make a long-distance phone call than to call across town, so an out-of-town contact may be in a better position to communicate among separated family members. It is also a good idea to inquire about emergency plans at places where your family spends time: work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help make one. Step 3: Prepare your Home Make sure your home is well insulated and you have weather stripping around your doors and windowsills to keep the warm air inside. Insulate pipes with insulation or newspapers and plastic and allow faucets to drip to prevent freezing. Learn how to shut off water valves in case a pipe bursts. Keep fire extinguishers on hand and make sure everyone in your house knows how to use them. House fires

pose an additional risk as more people turn to alternate heating sources without taking the necessary safety precautions. Take time to find out what you should do to help elderly or disabled friends, neighbors or employees. If you have a car, fill the gas tank in case you have to leave. In addition, check or have a mechanic check your car’s operating system to ensure it is able to withstand winter temperatures and road conditions. Step 4: Know the Terms that are used to Identify Winter Weather Understand the dif-

ferences between freezing rain and sleet, Winter Weather Advisory, Winter Weather Watch and Winter Weather Warning. While the differences may seem subtle, knowing the difference can save your life. Finally, when a winter storm warning is issued, stay indoors during the storm. If you must go outside, several layers of lightweight clothing will keep you warmer than inside a single heavy coat. Gloves and a hat will prevent loss of body heat. Walk carefully on snowy, icy walkways. If

your pipes freeze, remove any insulation or layers of newspapers and wrap pipes in rags. Completely open all faucets and pour hot water over the pipes, starting where they are most exposed to the cold. Maintain ventilation when using kerosene heaters to avoid build-up of toxic fumes. Refuel kerosene heaters outside and keep them at least three feet from flammable objects. Avoid traveling by car in a storm, but if you must, carry an emergency supply kit in the trunk, keep the car’s gas tank full of gas and let someone

know your destination, your route and when you expect to arrive. Learn about the emergency plans that have been established in your area. In any emergency, always listen to the instructions give by local response officials. For further information on how to plan and prepare for winter storms as well as what to do during and after a winter storm, visit: Federal E m e r g e n c y Management Agency at, NOAA Watch at, or the American Red Cross at

Make sure your holiday travel goes smoothly this winter by getting your vehicle in shape before taking to the roads. Here's a checklist from the pros at the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) to help make the repair process go smoothly: • Follow the manufacturer's recommended service schedules. • Keep a log of all repairs and service. • Inspect your car periodically for unusual sounds, odors, drips, warning lights, gauge readings, etc. • Be aware of changes in: engine performance, fluid levels and problems in handling, braking, steering

or vibrations. • Be prepared to describe any problems. Try to note when the problem occurred and whether it is constant or periodic. • Carry a written list of the symptoms for the technician or service consultant. • Do not suggest a repair; let the technician diagnose and recommend a remedy. • Ask questions. Do not be embarrassed to request simple definitions. • Don't rush the technician to make an on-the-spot diagnosis. Ask to be called and appraised of the problem, the fix, and estimated costs before work begins. • Be sure you under-

Diocese of Des Moines Celebrates 100 Years 1911- 2011 Harrison County Catholic Churches Faith Foundation laid before and after diocese was established

Logan - St. Anne Logan’s first and only Catholic Church built for less than $6,000 in 1920. St. Anne first Mass celebrated on July 21, 1921

Dunlap - St. Patrick’s Parish founded in 1872 Current church was built in 1929 with cobblestones from Council Bluffs streets

Mondamin - Holy Family Parish established 1976, church built in 1977. First service September 1977. Consolidation of Sacred Heart in Mondamin, St. Patrick’s Modale and St. Anne’s in Pisgah

In the early 1800s, the Diocese of Des Moines was but a small part of the Diocese of Louisiana, which included territory from the Gulf of Mexico up to Canada and from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains. With the expansion of the Catholic Church in the West, the Diocese of St. Louis was created, and from that came many other dioceses, including the Diocese of Dubuque which was created in 1837. In 1838, a Belgian Jesuit named Father Pierre De Smet began to minister to the Pottawattamie Indians in Council Bluffs along the Missouri River. Iowa became a state in 1846, and growth continued with German and Irish settlers. In 1852, missionary Father Timothy Mullen built St. Patrick, a log cabin church near Cumming at Irish Settlement, with a parish that covered most of what is now the Diocese of Des Moines. A new church built in 1868 continues to serve parishioners today. By 1911, when Pope Pius X established the Diocese of Des Moines, there were 54 parishes, 28 missions, 68 priests and 17 Catholic schools within its boundaries. In 1925, Bishop Thomas Drumm announced the creation of the Des Moines Catholic Charities in 1945 services expanded to include services for those on the western side of the diocese. In the following years, a number of parishes built new churches, St. Albert High School was founded in Council Bluffs and the number of seminarians and priests grew. On Oct. 4, 1979, Pope John Paul II agreed to a request by farmer Joe Hays, of Truro, Iowa, to visit Iowa. He spent time at St. Patrick Church near Irish Settlement and then celebrated a Mass before the largest Iowa crowd in history, estimated to be 350,000 people, at Living History Farms in Urbandale. Since the 1970s, the Diocese of Des Moines has been welcoming refugees, immigrants and other newcomers. The Diocese of Des Moines today serves about 97,000 people in central and southwest Iowa in 82 parishes throughout 23 counties in the southwest quadrant of the state.

December 1, 2010

Legals Looking Back into past editions of The Twiner 1950 – 60 Years Ago Fire completely demolished the Sheets Motor Company Ford garage in Woodbine late Tuesday night, in one of the worst fires in quite a number of years. The walls and the building are still standing, but the destruction of the internal parts of the building and the roof are practically complete. The Woodbine school’s hot lunch program, which began on Monday, November 27, is now operating in full swing. Approximately 115 students are taking advantage of this program to receive well balanced lunches at noontime on school days. Woodbine is one of the 800 schools in the state using this fine program to furnish cheap well prepared lunches to the school youths. The ice skating pond on the Municipal pump house lawn will be ready for use by Christmas vacation time, unless weather changes, according to Otis Dean, who has been flooding the rink at intervals lately. This pond is being lighted by the Light Plant, and it is requested that these lights be turned off when the last people leave at night. Three concerts will be given by the Woodbine High School band under the director of Mr. Robert Head. The proceeds will go toward purchasing new band uniforms which are badly needed. Youths of Woodbine packed the Pix Theatre Saturday for the Community Club sponsored free show and enjoyed the western features. Santa came to the downtown district immediately following the show to hand out candy to the youngsters. Oranges were also given away, through the courtesy of Pieper ’s Refrigerated Lockers. 1960 – 50 Years Ago Radiosonic instruments were found on the Max Gorham farm November 25, which had been dispatched from the Omaha airport August 16 of this year.

Plymouth County livestock feedlot ordered to pay penalties The owner of a cattle and hog feedlot in Plymouth County has agreed to pay a $5,850 civil penalty to the United States to settle alleged violations of the facility’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit. Mark Beitelspacher, doing business as Beitelspacher Farms, of LeMars, did not maintain adequate records associated with the land application of liquid effluent from his feedlot, as required by the NPDES permit. Beitelspacher Farms’ facilities have the capacity for approximately 3,000 cattle and 4,700 hogs, according to an administrative consent agreement filed by EPA Region 7 in Kansas City, Kan. An EPA representative conducted a compliance inspection of Beitelspacher Farms on April 28, 2010, and found that the facility did not maintain adequate records of its liquid effluent land applications. Failure to properly document land applications of a feedlot’s manure-con-

taining process wastewater can increase the risk that crops and fields may receive excessive amounts of feedlot-related contaminants. Overapplication can significantly increase the risk that pollutants will end up in nearby streams and water bodies. “The State of Iowa has designated a number of streams in northwest Iowa as being impaired, and feedlot-related pollutants often are a significant contributor to water quality problems in these streams,” EPA Regional Administrator Karl Brooks said. “As EPA strives to encourage feedlot operators to comply with their discharge permits, the Agency is obligated by the Clean Water Act to protect the environment through enforcement actions such as this.” As part of the settlement agreement, Beitelspacher has certified that his feedlot is now in compliance with the Clean Water Act. The consent agreement is subject to a 40-day public comment period before it becomes final.
