Council shifts course on bar-age issue Debate back before Student leader city’s leadership responds to vote
Editor’s note: In response to this week’s decision by the Maryville City Council to revisit a proposal raising the age limit for legal entry into bars and taverns, Northwest Missouri State University Student Senate President Cody M. Uhing on Tuesday issued the following statement, which the Daily Forum has elected to publish in its entirety. “I am deeply concerned about the unintended consequences that could arise from raising the bar entry age and losing a public environment for underage students. “While a bar may not be the safest environment, it is better than a unsupervised house party. This was an opinion many students shared with me over the last year and a half of Cody Uhing discussion on this topic. “I am disappointed that the council has disregarded the overwhelming opposition to this from a large constituency within the city. “In regards to the rest of the comprehensive (alcohol consumption) plan, I think the council is working toward a goal of making our community safer and curbing underage drinking. “I support the comprehensive approach, but I think all parts of the plan should be beneficial to the safety of students. “I think raising the entry age will negatively impact the goal of creating a safer community. It isn’t cutting down underage drinking, but rather forcing students into environments that foster an irresponsible mindset to drinking.” Cody M. Uhing, President, 91st Student Senate
By TONY BROWN News editor
In a reversal of a decision made last spring after nearly a year of public meetings, debate and input by municipal staff and officials at Northwest Missouri State University, the Maryville City Council on Monday voted 4-1 in favor of revisiting a proposal to raise the city’s bar entry age minimum to 21. The vote came following a discussion of proposed ordinances designed to inaugurate a “comprehensive” alcohol enforcement policy containing several provisions aimed at Northwest students and the bars and taverns that cater to them. Last May the council voted 3-2 to leave the longstanding age-19 entry standard alone. But on Monday Councilman Jeff Funston and Mayor Jim Fall switched sides, leaving Councilwoman Renee Riedel as the sole supporter of the status quo. Councilmen Glenn Jonagan and Ron Moss, reaffirming their earlier stance, voted to bring the age-21 ordinance back for a vote at the next council meeting on January 27. Technically Monday’s vote means only that the ordinance can be voted on
for a second time. But in reality, majority opinion on the council appears to have shifted toward excluding 19- and 20-year-olds from entering establishments primarily in the business of selling alcohol. If passed, the restriction would not apply to restaurants that serve liquor by the drink but derive most of their sales from food. Public hearing, then vote According to Fall and City Manager Greg McDanel, here is what will likely happen the next time the council convenes: First, a public hearing will take place during which members of the public will be able to voice their opinions about the bar age entry standard. Then an ordinance proposing an age21 limit will be read by the city clerk. Assuming there is a motion and a second from the council, the proposal will be opened for discussion by the council only, read for a second time and submitted to a vote. In addition to the age21 ordinance, the council on January 27 is also to hear “first readings” of alcohol-related ordinances that would set up new rules governing drinking in public, “nuisance”parties, and cooperative enforcement procedures to be adopted by
Nelson selected as ‘Busch Hero’ By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer
A local man has been selected as one of eight national “Busch Heroes” for an advertising campaign by brewing giant AnheuserBusch InBev honoring individuals who work hard for themselves and their families and communities “on and off the job.” Dennis Nelson, who owns a home construction business in Maryville, joins seven other individuals from across the United States who will be featured in digital and print advertisements, on regional billboards, and on special-edition packaging used for Busch and Busch Light beverages. “Our goal with Busch Heroes is to shine a spotlight on those who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty, on and off the clock,” said Edison Yu, Anheuser-Busch’s vice president for value brands.
Nelson, who has been in the construction business for about 15 years, says he’s not exactly certain how he was chosen as a Busch Beer poster person. “Someone had asked my brother Jason if he knew of anyone in this area who was the type of person they were looking for, and he gave them my name,” Nelson said. Nelson was a bit overwhelmed by how quickly things got off the ground once he was chosen. “They called and interviewed me, and then over the summer they contacted me on a Wednesday, congratulated me for being selected, and told me they would be here to film me on Friday, so everything happened pretty quickly.” “Dennis said he’d been building houses for 15 years, and no one had ever called him a hero,” said See SELECTED, Page 6

Maryville Public Safety and the University Police Department. Unless the council decides otherwise during the meeting, votes on all three of those measures would wait until the next council meeting on Feb. 10. Should any or all of the ordinances pass it is likely they would not be implemented until
late next summer prior to the start of a new school year. Legwork by municipal staff indicates this city is less proactive than other Missouri college towns with regard to restrictions on public drinking. According to Public Safety Director Keith Wood, Maryville is See BAR AGE, Page 6

Jefferson C-123 schools chief announces retirement from helm By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
This fall will usher in a new era for the Jefferson C-123 School District. For the last 16 years, Rob Dowis has served as superintendent of schools for the small eastern Nodaway County district. He recently announced that he plans to retire at the end of this school year. “Do you have to have plans for retirement?” Dowis asked about turning the page on a new chapter in his life. “They say as superintendent, every year he makes about 7 percent of the people mad a him. This is my 16th year so I’m well over 100 percent by now.” Dowis moved to Maryville a few months ago and plans to remain a Nodaway County resident. Raised in Sheridan, Dowis attended school there before enrolling at Northwest Missouri State University. He later returned to his hometown to teach. At Northwest, he received three different degrees, a bachelor’s, a master’s in educational leadership and an educational specialist degree in superintendency. Dowis credited one person especially with mentoring him for a career in education. “Wayne Winstead,” Dowis said. “He was my high school coach and principal at Sheridan. When Sheridan, Grant City and Worth County all went together, he took me with him. He
Rob Dowis coached girls (basketball) and I did boys. He inspired me a lot.” Winstead went on to coach at Northwest and became the winningest women’s basketball coach in university history. Dowis began teaching in the 1975-’76 school year at Sheridan, the year before the school joined the Worth County R-III School District. He taught at Worth County for six years, serving as athletic director and teaching health and psychology. He also served as superintendent at Jameson High School, now known as North Daviees High School, where he coached most sports. Before becoming superintendent
at Jefferson C-123 in 1998, Dowis played a large role in starting the Tarkio Academy in Tarkio. “I actually ended up as the administrator in charge of the bankruptcy estate when Tarkio College closed,” Dowis said. “I spent four or five years mostly in United States Bankruptcy Court in (Kansas City) and then getting Tarkio Academy started.” After moving over to Jefferson, Dowis coached the boys softball team to five straight state titles. “The first year I coached, we won the consolation, the second year we got third, then we won five straight state championships,” Dowis said. “Coached lots of good kids.” Under Dowis’ leadership, Jefferson received numerous awards for excellence. The district was awarded the Missouri Gold Star Award and the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2005 for elementary excellence along with the Title I Distinguished School Award in 2007. The high school received the Missouri Gold Star in 2006 and the Missouri Gold Star and National Blue Ribbon Award in 2008. “That’s what I’m really proud of,” Dowis said. “We were the only Missouri school in that time to get the nationally distinguished Title I award.” Current high school principal Tim Jermain has been selected to replace Dowis at the beginning of the next

MISSOURI CAPITOL NEWS
Dems propose cash cap JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s secretary of state unveiled a plan to cap campaign contributions, ban lawmakers from accepting gifts and institute a three-year period before legislators can become lobbyists. Jason Kander and Rep. Kevin McManus, both Kansas City Democrats, said Tuesday that Missouri’s ethics laws are the weakest in the country and they need to be changed. Missouri is currently the only state with no limits on campaign donations or lobbyist gifts, and no ban on lawmakers becoming lobbyists immediately after leaving office. The measure is unlikely to gain traction in Missouri’s Republican-led Legislature, where Democrats have pushed such bills in the past. Kander’s proposal would also award whistleblowers 10 percent of an ethics fine for reporting violations.

Filing period open for council posts
The City of Maryville is the county seat of Nodaway County and is incorporated as a third-class city under Missouri statutes. On Nov. 14, 1960, Maryville voted to adopt the city council/manager form of government under which it currently operates. In accordance with these statutes, the registered voters within the city elect five council members on an at-large nonpartisan basis, each to serve a three-year staggered term. All policy-making and legislative authority is vested in the city council, whose responsibilities include, but are not limited to, passing ordinances, adopting the annual budget, and appointing committees. The city council appoints a city manager to serve at its discretion as the city’s chief administrative officer. That person is responsible for carrying out council policies and ordinances and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the city. That is where I come in … and as local elections approach, I often wonder who my staff and I will be working with for community betterment. Fast forward to April 8, 2014. Are you ready to cast your ballots for the city council candidates who will represent you for the next three years? Sadly to this date, we have seen little interest for those positions. Two council positions are up for general election and the ballot filing closes at 5 p.m. Jan. 21. That is next Tuesday. Traditionally, local government has the least interest and worst voter turnout of the three levels of government — federal, state, local. Ironically, it often is the most accessible, transparent, and responsive form of the three. Local governments tackle multiple issues that have a daily impact on the citizens of a community. We make certain that Maryville provides police and fire services, water, wastewater, adequate road conditions, economic development, recreational services, housing services, financial stewardship of your tax dollars, and long-term planning. We do not “shutdown” and we annually approve an award-winning balanced budget. Managing the services that affect citizen’s lives — health, safety, and welfare — can be complex and difficult. However, with the assistance of a well-trained professional staff, the city can accomplish a lot with a city council member who simply has a passion for public service. No two councils are exactly the same and that diversity benefits the people they represent. Elected officials with various backgrounds can unite for the collective good and seek to make informed and well-intentioned decisions. Public service is about leadership and as elections approach, this is your opportunity to help lead Maryville into the future. The Maryville City Council will face critical decisions in the coming years, yet with the assistance of the Maryville Comprehensive Plan and effective dialogue, the council will ensure that community needs are met. Even with busy lives, we must remember that local elections are crucial to community success. We should not take our right to vote for granted. Please remember to vote April 8. Any person who is interested in running for Maryville’s city council can obtain additional information by contacting the City Clerk’s Office, 660-562-8001.

A Minute with Mike
Missouri’s operating budget is early focus in 2014 session
Despite the bitterly cold temperatures and snow covered roads, the second half of the 97th General Assembly officially slid into session Jan 8. For the next four-and-a-half months, we will discuss and debate many issues, hoping to create sound policy that will lead to growth and prosperity for our great state. While specific policy items often take center stage each session, there is no bigger issue or responsibility for the state Legislature than Missouri’s annual operating budget. This is a job we all take very seriously because the decisions we make involve billions of dollars in taxpayer money. That means we carefully weigh each and every decision so that we do not waste any of the hard-earned money you give to the state in the form of taxes. For the last several years, it was a huge challenge because of declining revenues and the need for numerous budget cuts in order to keep the budget balanced. More recently we have seen revenue growth that has allowed for funding increases to vital areas such as education. That is good news, but it also brings with it new challenges. Each year before we begin the budget process, we have key leaders from both the House and Senate sit down with staff from the governor’s office and economic specialists to agree on an anticipated level of rev-
enue growth. This number, known as the CRE or Consensus Revenue Estimate, is used as the basis for the budget the governor proposes and the House and Senate ultimately modify and approve. Often, there are disagreements on this number, but in the end, all parties normally come to an agreement and establish a realistic CRE. For the first time in many years,
Mike Thomson there was no final consensus. House and Senate leaders felt that a reasonable growth projection was about 4.2 percent increase, which amounts to approximately $346 million in
new funding. The governor’s office wanted the estimate to increase to 5.9 percent growth or about $486 million in new funding. The higher figure would give the governor more to work with in his initial budget proposal, but could cause withholdings or shortages if the growth is not as expected. The House and Senate felt that we should shoot for a number that was lower to be sure that the state could meet all of it’s future obligations as we develop the budget for fiscal year 2015. It would be nice to see a huge revenue spike that would allow us to provide increased funding for vital state services, but it would be catastrophic to base funding on revenues we will never see. As your representative and a member of the budget committee, I will continue to work with the other members to formulate a budget that will be balanced and reasonable. We have gone through a few years where it was a struggle to maintain all of the services and priorities as we would like, but we always managed to balance our spending with what we took in. Perhaps our federal government should follow suit. If you have questions, you may reach me at my Capitol number, 573-751-9465; at the local district number, 660-582-4014; by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail at Room 401B State Capitol Building, Jefferson City, Mo. 65101.
Straight Talk from Sam
Seeking common-sense solutions
The second session of the 113 Congress officially convened this past week. And while it may be a new year, I intend to continue finding commonsense solutions to the problems facing our nation using Missouri values as my guiding principles. That starts with our nation’s debt and unemployment. We’ve begun to make progress on the debt and deficit. Since becoming the majority in the House, we have cut $165 billion in spending. Still, we need further meaningful and serious changes to the spending status quo. Washington must start asking the question: Is this program important enough to continue borrowing $17 trillion from China and other nations and loading that debt on future generations? That’s why I have introduced the
fMAGE Act to save taxpayer dollars by eliminating dozens of programs across the federal government that are
duplicative or overlapping. Additionally, on Friday we learned that job creation for December was the lowest in nearly three years — 74,000 jobs added, instead of the 200,000 economists expected. While we always want to see positive job growth, the average monthly job gains in 2013 were nearly identical to those of 2012. In other words, we still need a game-changer. The House passed the SKILLS Act 10 months ago to reform our expansive workforce development programs and help the nearly 20 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed find a job. The Senate should join us. I will continue to work with my colleagues to right our economic ship and get the millions of Americans seeking jobs back to work.

Classic, Comforting Soup Gets a Pork-Inspired Twist
“If I wasn’t a BBQ expert, I’d be cooking soups like this one all day long,” said Chef Ray Lampe, BBQ expert and author of the just-released cookbook, “Pork Chop.” He’s referring to his modern interpretation of a classic comfort food dish, Pork Chop Noodle Soup – a dish he says is “a better cure for the common cold,” filled with chunks of juicy, perfectly seasoned pork as well as carrots, celery, a blend of savory herbs and tender rotini pasta. Flavors that take you back Like many feel-good foods have the tendency to do, Chef Lampe’s pork chop soup recipe takes him back to his youth, when “soup day” was an extra-special time for his family. “Anytime my mom took the big pot out of the cabinet and got all the different ingredients ready, we knew it was going to be a good day,” he said. “Today, when I get a craving for my mom’s cooking, I often add something that makes it all-around heartier and tastier – like bonein ribeye pork chops. The hardest part is not eating the chops before the soup is ready.” Warm, comforting dishes After simmering all day on the stove, a bowl of Chef Lampe’s soothing, heart-warming, pork-filled
soup is the perfect complement to a grilled Swiss cheese sandwich or a fresh salad – whether you’re feeling under the weather or just craving a little pick-me-up. Remember, for juicy and tender chops as an ingredient or center-of-the-plate star, cook to an internal temperature between 145°F (medium rare), followed by a three-minute rest and 160°F (medium), using a digital thermometer to ensure accuracy.

Pork Chop Noodle Soup Courtesy of Chef Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ, from his cookbook “Pork Chop” (2013, Chronicle Books) Yield: 8-10 servings 3 ribeye pork chops, bone-in, about 3/4-inch thick Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 cups chicken broth or pork stock 4 cups unsalted vegetable broth
1 red onion, chopped 4 carrots, chopped 2 large celery sticks, chopped 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1/2 teaspoon dried basil 1 cup dried rotini pasta Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chops and cook for about 4 minutes, until golden brown. Flip and cook for 4 minutes more, until golden brown. Transfer chops to plate and set aside. Pour half of chicken broth into pot, scraping all browned bits from bottom. Add remaining chicken broth, vegetable broth, onion, carrots, celery and garlic. Mix well and bring to a simmer. Add 1 quart water, thyme, basil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Mix well and bring to a simmer. Add chops back to pot and return to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally, being careful not to break up chops. Transfer chops to plate, trying not to break them up. Set aside to cool. Raise heat and bring soup to a boil. Add pasta and cook for about 12 minutes, until tender. When chops are cool, pull them apart, discarding all bones and fat. Add meat back to soup and stir well. Taste for salt and pepper, and add if needed, before serving.
Get Creative with Citrus! This time of year, we find the number of clementines, oranges, lemons and grapefruits (just to name a few) are so abundant that it seems impossible to figure out what to do with them all. The fact is, citrus is versatile. It’s a no-brainer when it comes to enlivening the usual applications — vinaigrettes, salads, desserts — but there’s more than meets the eye, especially in the case of unique varieties. Here are some fun ways to bring your favorite dishes to another level of flavor: 1. Add citrus zest and juice to pesto. Blend 2 cups fresh basil, ¼ cup toasted pine nuts, 2 cloves garlic, zest and juice of 1 orange and 1 lemon, ½ teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a food processor until the mixture is finely chopped. With the machine running, gradually add ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Transfer to a bowl and stir in ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Serve over your favorite fish.
2. Top your favorite meal dishes with gremolata. Gremolata is a combination of lemon zest, garlic, parsley and olive oil. Traditionally an addition to Osso Bucco (braised veal shanks), it is also great as a garnish on grilled or roasted lamb, pork chops, beef and even roasted potatoes. Gremolata is best made fresh - it doesn’t keep for more than a day - but is also best if it has an hour or so before serving for the flavors to meld. Fortunately it only takes about 5 minutes to make! To prepare, simply combine the zest of one lemon, 2 minced garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley, 1 teaspoon olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. 3. Brighten up ricotta. Ricotta cheese has a very mild flavor but with the addition of citrus juice and zest, it comes to life. Stir together 1 cup ricotta cheese, zest and juice of 1 lemon, 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, ¼ teaspoon salt and a pinch of nutmeg and freshly ground black pepper.
Smear on a whole wheat flatbread or pizza crust and top with trimmed and diced asparagus and ½ cup mozzarella cheese. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Finish with more fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley. 4. Add color and extra “zip” to sangria. Sangria is typically served as a summertime beverage, but this winter version is perfect for entertaining. It’s perfumed with clementines and sliced pears, and garnished with fresh pomegranate arils. This information is not intended as medical advice. For individual medical advice, please contact a health care provider. Winter Sangria with Citrus & Pomegranate Makes 10 servings All you need: 1 pear, washed, seeded and sliced 4 clementines or 2 tangelos,
washed and sliced thinly 1 apple, washed, seeded and sliced 1 cup pomegranate arils 1/4 cup sugar 1 cinnamon stick 1 bottle red wine 3 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup orange juice, ideally freshly squeezed Hy-Vee ginger ale or club soda for serving Ice cubes All you do: In the bottom of a large glass pitcher or gallon jar, combine sliced fruit and pomegranate. Sprinkle with sugar and toss in the cinnamon stick. Pour the red wine and the fruit juices over the fruit. Stir well, cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours. To serve, remove cinnamon stick, and pour over ice into glasses. Top with ginger ale or club soda to taste. Garnish with more pomegranate arils if desired.

Bar-age issue debated Continued from Page 1
TONY BROWN/DAILY FORUM
Biting the bullet
Members of the Maryville City Council renewed debate this week on a measure to raise the age limit for entering a drinking establishment from 19 to 21. The measure is one of a series of proposed ordinances designed to create a “comprehensive” policy governing public alcohol consumption that could include restrictions on pedestrians drinking on streets and sidewalks and expanded powers for police in dispersing “nuisance” parties.
Selected as ‘Busch Hero’ Continued from Page 1 Susie Nelson, Nelson’s mother. One of Nelson’s activities that impressed the selection committee was his taking two weeks off from work to help build a house for his church as a volunteer. “The house was for our youth minister, and we framed everything up and got it ready for finish work. I was more than happy to do it,” Nelson said. Anheuser Busch is planning a local event in the near future to
honor Nelson’s work in the community and to celebrate his selection as a “Busch Hero.” A-B plans for the campaign to become an annual recognition program and is currently searching out the next group of nominees. Winners will be chosen during a contest in which people submit nominations via the Busch Facebook page. “There are countless heroes out there, and we want to honor each one of them for their accomplishments and their commitment to earning
the only such community in the state that does not prohibit, or in some way limit, drinking by pedestrians on streets, sidewalks and other public spaces. Wood and McDanel have said ordinances also exist in some, but not all, Missouri college towns governing nuisance parties and drink specials. A nuisance party ordinance would likely contain a list of 10 or so “triggering” behaviors that would allow law enforcement officers to disburse gatherings on private property and hold the renters or owners of the property responsible for underage drinking and other infractions.

Though the bar entry age has stirred the most controversy, Mayor Fall said the real issue is what he perceives as the need for a wide-ranging alcohol policy. Fall said such a policy should embrace the issues listed above in addition to new regulations governing bar-promoted drink specials said to encourage binge drinking, excessive noise, liquor law enforcement and establishment licensing, training for bartenders and servers, and beefed-up bar patrols by Maryville Public Safety. Fall said he switched his vote on the age standard because he believes the three new ordinances proposed by staff comprise the “start” of a comprehensive alcohol policy, and that an age-21 minimum should be included as part of the set. He dismissed staff concerns that new rules on drink specials, noise, training, liquor license enforcement and a more intensive police presence are either impractical, too expensive or both. “If we’re going to take this seriously, then that’s the bullet we need to bite,” Fall said of what would amount to a municipal fullcourt press against alcohol-fueled misbehavior.

‘Trying to keep them alive’ Also speaking was Matt Baker, Northwest’s vice president of student affairs. Baker said anything less than a “comprehensive policy” was a “high risk strategy” that would make it more difficult to keep college students out of harm’s way — especially freshmen and sophomores, the vast majority of whom are too young to drink legally. Baker said university officials have seen an “increase in the number of students exhibiting high-risk behaviors over the past 10 years,” and that problems with alcohol and other substances too often reach the point where young adults end up in the hospital. “I’m not saying there are dozens,” Baker said, “but there are enough to cause concern.” Younger students, especially, Baker said, would benefit from “key safety measures that encourage people to make good decisions.”

I told our board that my only reservation in recommending him is that I was going to be easy to replace, but he is not. He is a super principal. I hope he can take the district places that I wasn’t able to go with it.” Out of all the awards,

cluding his council-mate Riedel, who fears keeping 19- and 20-year-olds out of bars will lead to their consuming alcohol in “an uncontrolled environment that invites more risky behavior.” Riedel said the current council had already made a decision on the age limit after reviewing pages of data and listening to hours of debate, “So why would a new vote make any sense?” She added that the alcohol debate was stealing staff time and resources from what she believes are more important issues, such as infrastructure improvements and economic development. Paul Thompson, who owns The Palms bar at 422 N. Buchanan St., also addressed the council Monday and said he was on board with the age-21 standard. But rules prohibiting alcohol consumption on streets and sidewalks and restricting “reasonable” noise levels, he said, would unfairly limit his ability to offer live music and sponsor events like the annual “World’s Shortest St. Patrick’ Day Parade.” “The way this is looking, my business is going to suffer,” Thompson said.

QUOTABLE “We’ve got to take care of business when we have the opportunity,” Drake said. “We cannot let it come down to those things that we can’t control. We were in a situation to control it and then we weren’t and you don’t want to get in those types of conditions.”

Spoofhounds lose twice via tiebreaker By JASON LAWRENCE Sports editor
Maryville let some opportunities to win slip from its grasp Tuesday night as the Spoofhounds lost in tiebreakers to both Albany and Rock Port. “Our biggest concern was, we shouldn’t have ever got to that point,” head coach Joe Drake said. “We should have taken care of business in the regular part of the matches and we wouldn’t have been in a tiebreaker situation. We should have won both those duals by a point or two and that should have been the end of it, but we just did not take care of business when we had the opportunity to get it done.” Against Albany, Nathaniel Alexander wrestled a class up at 132 pounds and pinned Tyler Osmon and Dane Hull pinned Maverick Hall to win at 160 lbs. Cayden Dunbar (126 lbs.), Brendan Weybrew (heavyweight) and Jacob Partridge (106 lbs.) won via forfeit. At 170 lbs., Trevor Zimmerman held a two-point lead down late in the third period, but was taken down and eventually lost in sudden-death overtime. “That was crucial for us,” Drake said. “That’s a crucial match, we just can’t let those get away from us. That hurt.” With it tied 36-36, the referee went to the rule book to settle it and went down to criteria D — most matches won, where Albany

escaped with a 7-6 advantage. “We’ve got to take care of business when we have the opportunity,” Drake said. “We cannot let it come down to those things that we can’t control. We were in a situation to control it and then we weren’t and you don’t want to get in those types of conditions.” Maryville beat Albany earlier this season via tiebreaker. The Spoofhounds also went to tiebreaker with Rock Port after
Hull claimed a 2-0 decision over Noah Makings and Dunbar, Matt Twaddle (132 lbs.), Cody Jackson (195 lbs.), Weybrew and Partridge (113 lbs.) won via forfeit. Hull went down in his match clutching his shoulder, but finished his match after being checked out by Drake and the trainer. “I really think he got kind of a stinger like you get in football,” Drake said. When it first hit him, I think he kind of panicked and
thought he broke his collarbone or something, and I really did too. I thought he was hurt a lot worse than he was. Then when I got to talking to him, he got his composure back and I checked his strength grip, that was good. I didn’t think anything seriously was wrong and that’s when I felt a little more confident. You could tell he wasn’t able to do some of the things in the match that he wanted to do, but he got the match
won for us and that’s what’s important.” The referee again checked the rule book and went done nine lines on the criteria list before deciding a winner. The Blue Jays won 4-1 on first point scored despite finishing in a 33-all tie. “We didn’t do the things we were capable of and just let it get away from us,” Drake said. Maryville hits the road Thursday to take on Sabetha (Kan.) and Falls City (Neb.) at Sabetha. “We’ll see Falls City (Neb.) and Sabetha and those two teams are traditionally very good teams, so we’re going to have a tough road come Thursday,” Drake said. Then, the Spoofhounds move on to the MEC Tournament on Jan. 25. After a strong showing last Saturday at the Mid-Buchanan Tournament, Drake said he wants to see his young team work on its attitude moving forward. “We’re really young this year. We have one senior and two juniors. I guess you could say emotionally, we’ve been up and down,” Drake said. “Saturday down at Mid-Buchanan, we had a great day. The kids really wrestled well, they were doing the things we talked about and then we came tonight and for whatever reason we were flat. “We’ve got to work on attitude. We’ve got to get a more positive attitude, a more aggressive attitude. We’ve got some skill, we just didn’t show it very well tonight.”

North Nodaway loses in heartbreaking fashion By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer
Two Nodaway County teams were in action Tuesday night at the 82nd Annual Fairfax Tournament, as one opened the evening’s activities and the other closed the night of basketball. In the first game of the evening, the North
Nodaway Lady Mustangs, seeded fourth in the tournament, dropped a heartbreaking 3332 decision to fifth-seeded Craig/Fairfax. North Nodaway grabbed a slim 11-9 lead at the end of the first quarter, thanks in part to four points by Brittany Bix and three by teammate Cambry Schulter. Both defenses caused several turnovers and hurried shots. See LADY MUSTANGS, Page 8
Lady Bluejays come out quickly By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
Editor’s note: The Daily Forum will be previewing every team in Nodaway County as the 2014 portion of the season gets underway. This is another installment in the series, which will be published over the next several weeks. The Northeast Nodaway Lady Bluejays have come out of the gates quickly after posting a losing season last year. With a career record of 48-71, head coach and athletic director Vance Proffitt has led the Lady Bluejays to some earlyseason success. The Lady Jays finished last season with a 9-15 record, 3-4 in Platte Valley Conference play. This year, they have started with a 7-4 record, but are off to a roller-
coaster start as a team. “We have to be more consistent with our play,” Proffitt said. “We are too up and down. We have played like a great team at times and like a bad team. Once we learn how to play consistent, we will be a tough team to play.” Seniors Taryn Farnan and Claudia Weiderholt have been leaders on the team so far. Farnan is averaging nine points this year and Weiderholt has averaged seven points and three assists. Sophomore Dallis Coffelt has also been shouldering a lot of the load for the team. She is averaging nine points and eight rebounds on the season. The Platte Valley Conference is a tough place to play, but Proffitt wants this year’s team to compete for a top spot. “We want to compete with the upper level of the conference,” Proffitt said.

Jefferson sneaks by South Nodaway in 1st round By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
KEVIN BIRDSELL/DAILY FORUM
Jefferson senior Tyler Farnan blocks a South Nodaway player on Monday night. Farnan tallied 12 blocks in the Eagles 45-37 victory in the first round of the Stanberry Invitational.
Nobody told South Nodaway that it was the No. 7 seed going up against No. 2 seed Jefferson on Monday night. The Longhorns came out quick and hold an 18-17 lead over the Eagles at the half. Both teams came out of the half playing lock down defense. The teams scored a single point between them in the first four minutes of the third quarter. At the end of the quarter, the Longhorns still had a one point lead, 25-24. The Eagles came out in the fourth quarter firing and were able to pull away and get the 45-37 win. “We knew were going to have this matchup and we spent some time preparing for it,” South Nodaway head coach Dustin Skoglund said. “I don’t know that we beat (the pressure) as effectively as we needed to to get the win, but we were able to beat it a few times. Some of that is preparation and some of that is the quickness we have in our guards.” Jefferson wasn’t the only one applying pressure during the game. South Nodaway turned up its defensive pressure the whole game, keeping it close. “We’ve struggled to score against zones (since Christmas),” Jefferson head coach
Tim Jermain said. “They did a good job and are big in the middle of their zone. We’ve got to find some confidence playing against a zone. The last few games, we’ve struggled when teams have switched to a zone and it’s something we’ve got to get better at.” Despite the close game, Jefferson was able to pull away in the fourth quarter behind strong free throw shooting, hitting 8-of-11 in the quarter. “We spend a lot of time on the defensive end and we have to be able to get a stop,” Jermain said. “I thought we got some big stops and we hit a couple big shots, hit free throws and made smart decisions. But I think it all starts on the defensive end.” Senior Dalton Murphy led the led the Longhorns in scoring with 11 points. Senior Damien Wilmore also scored eight points. Sophomore Jason Sullivan scored nine points to lead the Eagles, with coming in the fourth quarter. Senior Alex Holtman scored eight points to help the cause. Senior Kyler Farnan scored five points and registered 12 blocks on the night. South Nodaway will move on to play King City in the consolation bracket of the Stanberry Tournament tonight at 9 p.m. in Stanberry. Jefferson moves on to play Albany on Thursday night at 9 p.m. in Stanberry in the winner’s bracket.

Second half pressure leads Longhorns to solid victory By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
South Nodaway used second half defensive pressure to pull away from Jefferson on Monday night. Stanberry Tournament play opened up Monday night and the late girls game pitted No. 4 South Nodaway against No. 5 Jefferson. The game was close in the first half, with Jefferson holding a 21-20 lead at the break. South Nodaway came out of the break fast and furious and Jefferson wasn’t able to keep pace. Heavy pressure and strong free throw shooting contributed to the Longhorns ability to pull away. “They like to pressure in the full court,” Jefferson head coach Tyler Pedersen said. “The press kind of wears on you. Sometimes teams are more prepared in the first half. (South Nodaway coach Aaron Murphy) does a nice job of taking (pressure) off and putting it back on.” “We had to play with smart pressure,” South Nodaway head coach Aaron Murphy
said. “We had them in the double bonus early in the third quarter. We had to play fundamental defense and not send them to the line. We were able to do that and get some turnovers.” Inconsistent play has been a reoccurring theme for the Jefferson Lady Eagles this year, and this game was no different. “I still don’t believe that we have played four quarters of quality basketball,” Pedersen said. “I think we did a lot of good things tonight, but didn’t do enough of the little things to come out with the win.” Sophomore Jessie Henry led the Eagles in scoring with 17 points. Freshman Sarah Chor and junior Makayla Wilmes both added six points. The Longhorns were led in scoring by junior Kristen Nielson and senior Andrea Henggler, who both scored 14 points. Junior Allison Hilsabeck added eight points of her own, four of which came from the free throw line. South Nodaway will play the winner of North Andrew and Worth County on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. Jefferson will play the loser of that same game tonight at 4:30 p.m.
Lady Mustangs lose late Continued from Page 7 By halftime, North Nodaway had extended its lead to 20-17, as Bix, Schluter, Alysa Lyle and Erin Greeley each scored two points in the quarter. In the third quarter, North Nodaway came out shooting poorly, and the Lady Bulldogs took advantage by outscoring the Lady Mustangs 10-3 in the quarter and grabbing a 27-23 lead. The fourth quarter saw the two teams trade the lead back and fourth until Craig/ Fairfax freshman Goldie Barnes dropped in a 15-foot jumper with eight seconds left in the game that proved to be the eventual game winner. Schluter led the Lady Mustangs, now 5-8
on the season, with 12 points, while Bix added six. “We lost the game because we shot so poorly,” North Nodaway head coach Doug Freemyer said. “Our shooting percentage was terrible.” With the loss, North Nodaway clinched a spot in Friday night’s girls consolation contest, against an opponent yet to be determined. Game time is 5 p.m. In the final contest of the evening, the Trojans of Nodaway-Holt defeated Savannah’s junior varsity 65-55. Next tournament action for the Trojans, now 6-6 will be tonight in semifinal action versus West Nodaway. Game time is set for 9 p.m.

Bluejays off to a slow start By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer
Editor’s note: The Daily Forum will be previewing every team in Nodaway County as the 2014 portion of the season gets underway. This is another installment in the series, which will be published over the next several weeks. After finishing .500 last year, the Northeast Nodaway Bluejays have gotten off to a slow start this year, but look to pick up the pace. Head coach Chaim Jenkins, whose career record is 24-32, has led his team to a 2-7 start on the season. The Bluejays finished 13-13 last year and 3-4 in the Platte Valley Conference. Seniors Joel Scroggie and Steve Schulte are leading the Bluejays statistically this year. Scroggie is averaging 18 points and 11 rebounds per game and Schulte is averaging 10 points and seven rebounds. “(Our goal is to) go out every night and play the game the right way,” Jenkins said.
Jenkins has seen some improvement on his team since the beginning of the season and thinks it will continue to advance. Unselfish, team-oriented play are at the top of Jenkins’ keys to success. In order for those keys to be achieved the Bluejays need to focus on smart shots and strong post play, Jenkins said. “(We have the) same keys as the beginning of the year,” Jenkins said. “With every game we become more comfortable and smarter with our individual roles.” The strong inside out play of Scroggie, a forward, and Schulte, a guard, have played a major role in the Bluejays’ gameplan this year. “I feel as if we have one of the better post players in the area in Joel Scroggie,” Jenkins said. “He is a dominant force that we plan to continue to utilize throughout the season. Steve Schulte has one of the better all-around games in the area and definitely sets a tone for us on both ends. We play well as a team and I expect good things from this group.” The Bluejays are taking part in the South Harrison Invitational this week.

$765M might not cover Lady Hounds lose close one NFL concussion claims By MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A federal judge is slowing down the proposed $765-million settlement of NFL concussion claims, questioning if there’s enough money to cover 20,000 retired players. U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody denied preliminary approval of the plan on Tuesday because she’s worried the money could run out sooner than expected. She also raised concerns that anyone who gets concussion damages from the NFL would be barred from suing the NCAA or other amateur football leagues. “I am primarily concerned that not all retired NFL football players who ultimately receive a qualifying diagnosis or their (families) ... will be paid,” the judge wrote. The proposed settlement, negotiated over several months, is designed to last at least 65 years. The awards would vary based on an ex-player’s age and diagnosis. A younger retiree with Lou Gehrig’s disease would get $5-million, those with serious dementia cases would get $3-million and an 80-year-old with early dementia would get $25,000. Retirees without symptoms would get baseline screening and followup care if needed. “Even if only 10-percent of retired NFL football players eventually receive a qualifying diagnosis,” the judge wrote, “it is difficult to see how the Monetary Award Fund would have the funds available over its lifespan to pay all claimants at these significant award levels.” She asked for more raw financial data before scheduling a fairness hearing this year, when objectors can question the plan. The objectors could later decide to opt out of it. Law professor Gabe Feldman, who directs the sports law program at the Tulane University Law School, called the ruling a setback but said “there’s no reason to panic.” “The question remains whether this gives pause to some of the retired players and makes them question whether this is a settlement they want to be a part of,” he said. Some critics said the NFL, with more than $9-billion in annual revenue, was get-
ting away lightly. But the players’ lawyers said they would face huge challenges just to get the case to trial. They would have to prove the injuries were linked to the players’ NFL service and should not be handled through league arbitration. They could end up with nothing. Sol Weiss, a lead lawyer for the ex-players, remained confident the class action settlement will ultimately be approved. He said he was confident “that there will be enough money to cover these claims for 65 years.” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said league officials were “confident that the settlement is fair and adequate and look forward to demonstrating that to the court.” More than 4,500 former players have filed suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. They include former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon, who suffers from dementia among others. The judge’s hand-picked mediator, former federal judge Layn R. Phillips, led several months of negotiations last year and has called the deal fair to both sides. The settlement would include $675-million for compensatory claims for players with neurological symptoms, $75-million for baseline testing for asymptomatic men and $10-million for medical research and education. The NFL also would pay an additional $112-million to the players’ lawyers for their fees and expenses, for a total payout of nearly $900-million. The NCAA clause is apparently designed to prevent plaintiffs from double dipping. Feldman said he was unsure why the NFL would insist on that. Given the judge’s ruling, the two sides could offer more evidence the fund would be stable, change the payout formula or perhaps have the NFL add more money to the pot. Otherwise, they may be left to start over. “I think it’s a pretty efficient way of doing things, rather than bring it up for the first time at the fairness hearing,” Matt Mitten, who directs the National Sports Law Institute at the Marquette University Law School, said of the judge’s opinion. “Some of these guys need the money right now.”
SAVANNAH, Mo. — Maryville and Savannah battled in a tight contest Monday night with neither team gaining much of a lead until the fourth quarter. Savannah led 11-9 after the first quarter and 22-19 at halftime. Maryville cut the lead down to one point heading into the fourth quarter, but ultimately faltered 46-40 as the Lady Savages scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
Sophomore guard Mollie Holtman led the Spoofhounds with 11 points while sophomore Abby Van de Ven chipped in 10. The Hounds played their second game without senior Chelsea Byland, who is out with a stress fracture suffered during the Bishop LeBlond Holiday Tournament. Maryville (4-8) is back on the court Friday night against Falls City (Neb.) at home in a double-header with the boys.
NFLPA gets hearing before appeals court on White case By R.B. FALLSTROM AP sports writer
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Attorneys for the NFL and the players’ union went before a federal appeals court Tuesday, arguing over whether to reopen the so-called Reggie White case that helped set league labor policy for years amid allegations that team owners set a secret salary cap. Both sides had 20 minutes in oral arguments before the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and both sides left the proceedings feeling optimistic. The word collusion was uttered exactly once. The hearing was held in the same courtroom where in June 2011 dozen of players showed up in force to urge the appeals court to declare the lockout illegal. The courtroom was packed with about 200 people, so many that folding chairs were brought in to seat some out-of-work and retired players. This time around, the setting was decidedly low-key. There were no famous faces among the 20 or so attendees, counting at least a half-dozen lawyers for both sides and attorneys awaiting cases later on the morning docket, and no media throng waiting at Thomas F. Eagleton Courthouse. “I think it went well,” NFL attorney Gregg Levy said. “The court was well-prepared.” The NFLPA is appealing a ruling by U.S. District Judge David Doty in Minneapolis rejecting the union’s attempt to reopen the lawsuit that guided labor matters from 1993 until a collective bargaining agreement was reached in 2011. Among other reasons, union attorney Jeffrey Kessler said, the case should be revisited because the agreement did not cover retired players and others not in the union.
The lawsuit filed in May 2012 claimed the NFL imposed a secret salary cap during the uncapped 2010 season that cost players at least $1 billion. The league denied the allegation, although four teams were punished for overspending and undermining competitive balance, with Dallas and Washington hit with future-cap reductions. The case landed in appeals court after Doty rejected a claim of collusion in December 2012. Doty had previously sided with players during more than two decades of judging NFL labor matters. Kessler said players were offended at the “insinuation of gamesmanship” involved in the appeal and said the CBA “has no relevance” in the proceedings. Levy argued that there was no legal precedent for the appeal, calling it an “extraordinary premise.” He noted that all parties involved have prospered since the agreement, reiterated the league’s position that the collusion claim was moot and said the lawsuit was beyond the statute of limitations. At one point during Levy’s argument, Riley said he thought the district court ruling was “pretty thin.” Levy replied: “It’s right on the money.” A decision from the three-judge panel is expected in two or three months. White, who died in 2006, filed a classaction lawsuit in 1993 seeking more open free agency and a salary cap. The resulting agreement was in place until 2008 when the NFL opted out, saying its costs were too high and that it needed givebacks from players. Before the lawsuit, the NFL had limited free agency known as Plan B, in which teams were allowed to protect 37 players and had the right to match offers for free agents or receive compensation.

When an average golfer gets a birdie (one under par), it is anticipated that he will make a mess of the next hole. But not a pro. However, what do you think is the worst score

by a pro immediately after making a hole in one? In golf, you try to place your ball well for your next shot. This also applies in bridge. Are your cards meshing well or badly with partner’s hand? Look only at the North hand. South opens one heart, North raises to two hearts, and South rebids two spades. What should North do now? Before you answer that question, what does South’s two-spade rebid show? It indicates a hand too strong to pass out two hearts, but too weak to jump to four hearts. He is showing four spades and a hand with six losers (here, one spade, one heart, three diamonds and one club). South is asking North to look in particular at his holdings in the majors. North has a useful spade queen, four trumps (a nine-card fit is much better than an eight-carder) and an ace. Yes, he
has only seven high-card points and 4-3-3-3 distribution, but since his hand has those three pluses, he should jump to four hearts. Agreed, on a bad day, declarer will lose three diamonds and one heart, but the odds make this game worth bidding, and it succeeds here. Late last year in Australia, at a European tour event (yes, in Australia), one golfer had a hole in one. On the next hole, a par four with no water, he had an 11.
