Campus fitness center proposed By BRANDON ZENNER Northwest Missourian

The campus building formerly known as the Robert P. Foster Aquatic Center may soon become home for Northwest Missouri State University students seeking a different kind of workout. A proposed plan could transform the now-closed indoor swimming pool into a new fitness center by fall 2015. The proposal was developed by a group of university personnel consisting of Athletic Director Mel Tjeerdsma; Matt Baker, vice president of student affairs; Robert Lade, director of recreational

sports; as well as Matthew Symonds, health and physical education professor. “For a school of 7,000 students, what we have for a fitness center is not very much,” Tjeerdsma said. “This is a trend that several universities are doing; they are beefing up their recreational fitness facilities. We think it’s going to be a win-win for everybody.” Some of the center’s features would include a 30-foot climbing wall, human abilities and performance labs, a dance and yoga studio, as well as multiple levels that would host cardio equipment. According to Baker, the new See FITNESS, Page 5

Recycling research

Linda Laderoute, environmental planner at the Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments, is conducting a recycling survey through March 15 that will provide local governments with data needed to apply for grants and establish recycling programs tailored to the needs of local residents.

Planner seeks to sell region on recycling By TONY BROWN News editor


Celebrating St. Gregory’s Children at St. Gregory’s School got a head start celebrating Catholic Schools Week on Friday with a “100th Day of School” party. The special week of activities had its official beginning on Sunday with a pancake breakfast served up by Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White and other volunteers from St. Gregory Barbarigo Church. White, shown here at the pancake grill, entertained youngsters by tossing flapjacks several feet through the air so that the children could — usually — catch them

on their plates. Following the pancake feed and morning Mass, St. Gregory’s staff conducted tours of the school for prospective students and their families. Also pictured taking part in Friday’s 100th Day of School activities are Luke Allen and Channing Harbin, shown holding “100” coloring book pages. Aiden Vasquez, Lila Steiner, Kori Quinlin, Halle Zimmerman and Grace Stiens got into the spirit of things by making and modeling “100” glasses. The

teacher is Jenny Renshaw. Catholic Schools Week events were to continue this morning with Maryville Mayor Jim Fall reading a proclamation in the St. Gregory’s gymnasium. Other activities planned for students throughout the week include writing letters to area priests, nuns, monks and parish volunteers; collecting donations for world hunger relief; a school-wide spelling bee on Friday; and field trips featuring a movie, roller skating and bowling.

Linda Laderoute has a passion for recycling. Sure, it’s her profession, but it’s also a belief that the quality of life human beings create for themselves is deeply connected to the way we share and exploit the resources of our planet home. Laderoute, the environmental planner for the Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments, is the first to admit that recycling can be a tough sell in Nodaway and surrounding counties. For decades in rural north Missouri, solid waste was simply called trash, and it was something you loaded into the back of a pickup truck and hauled to the nearest gully. That mindset, Laderoute admits, can be tough to overcome.

“People here have an independent spirit,” said the California native, who later spent many years on the East Coast before moving to Maryville. “When you tell people they have to do something, they’re going to say, ‘Well, no I don’t.’” But the reality, Laderoute says, is that the days simply stacking bags full of unsorted garbage along the curb or dumping that old refrigerator out in the country somewhere are over. Landfills fill up, and tougher environmental regulations are forcing a growing number to close. The city of Maryville, for example, pays tens of thousands of dollars each year for monitoring its former landfill site north of town, and would face huge punitive fines if it failed to meet standards imposed by See RECYCLING, Page 5

LOCAL NEWS BRIEFS Five injured in collision

Driver hurt in deer accident A Maryville woman suffered minor injuries Saturday night in a one-vehicle accident on Route E a half-mile north of Highway 136. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Heather D. Ackman, 35, was southbound in a 2007 Mercury Milan shortly before 10:30 p.m. when she swerved to miss a deer, forcing the car into a ditch. Ackman, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to St. Francis Hospital by Nodaway County ambulance. The car sustained moderate damage, according to the patrol report, and was towed from the scene. Trooper H.G. Vernon was assisted in working the accident by the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office and Ravenwood Fire & Rescue.

CAPITOL BRIEFS Bill would check Nixon JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri senator is proposing to curb governors’ authority to make budget cuts affecting education. The Missouri Constitution allows the governor to control the rate appropriations are spent and to reduce spending when state revenues are less than the estimate upon which the budget is based. Republican Sen. Ryan Silvey, of Kanas City, has proposed a constitutional amendment that would exclude spending through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education from that budget-trimming authority. A constitutional amendment would require a statewide vote if it passes the Legislature. Some funding for K-12 schools was included in Gov. Jay Nixon’s spending freeze last year because of concerns the Legislature would override his veto of a tax cut. That funding has since been restored.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — As a Republican senator, Kit Bond voted against the federal health care overhaul. Now lobbyist Bond is pushing Republican legislators in Missouri to embrace a key provision of the law by expanding Medicaid eligibility. Bond said Friday that the potential to reap billions of dollars in federal funding is simply too important for Missouri to pass up, especially for hospitals that otherwise could get stuck with higher costs. “While I was and still am one of the loudest opponents of Obamacare, I’m getting involved in Medicaid reform now because if our State sits on the sidelines, I’m concerned hospitals in rural and inner city Missouri won’t survive,” Bond said in an email. Missouri Chamber of Commerce & Industry President Dan Mehan said the former U.S. senator has already has met with Republican legislative leaders and Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon about the potential to expand Medicaid eligibility.

NATIONAL BRIEF Ice box temperatures return CHICAGO (AP) — An unusual weather pattern that drives air from the Arctic Circle south will send temperatures plummeting from Minneapolis to Louisville, Ky., and leave a huge swath of the country colder than Alaska. Mike Hudson of the National Weather Service said the wind chill would make Minneapolis feel like minus 43 degrees this morning — far colder than the minus 4 degrees expected in the nation’s northernmost city of Barrow, Alaska. That will be a shock for much of the Midwest. In Kansas City, the high temperature Sunday was expected to be 60 while today’s high is forecast to be only 15. Not only that, but the cold will stick around for a couple days. In Chicago, Hudson said, temperatures should remain below zero for more than two days.

Health fair participant

The Hy-Vee booth was one of 28 different exhibits at the 2014 Health & Fitness Fair, which took place Saturday at the Maryville Community Center. St. Francis Hospital & Health Services, along with Maryville Parks and Recreation and the Maryville Hy-Vee supermarket, sponsored the event.

Fitness fair keeps Maryville healthy By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

St. Francis Hospital & Health Services, along with Maryville Parks and Recreation and the local Hy-Vee supermarket, sponsored the 2014 Health & Fitness Fair Saturday at the Maryville Community Center. This year’s fair was focused on children and families, according to Rita Miller, community relations/ development director at St.

Francis. “Our society, especially children, have an evergrowing problem with obesity, so we felt targeting that group was the way to go this year,” Miller said. “We wanted to offer ideas on how easy it can be to change and modify eating and living habits, which can lead to healthier people.” Twenty-eight different exhibits — including a “bounce house” — provided lots of information, ideas

and entertainment to those attending the fair, which included exhibits on body fat analysis and pharmacy services. “We thought adding the bounce house was appropriate, given that children were our primary focus this year,” Miller said. “It provided an on-site example to kids that exercise can be fun.” The main function of the annual fair continues to be getting health information and resources to people who

need them. Many of those attending took advantage of booths that offered free cholesterol and glucose screening and free lung function screening. “The health and fitness fair provides a great opportunity to get in touch with the community to show people what’s available to them,” Miller said. “We want people with chronic conditions to know that the care that they need is available right here in Maryville.”

Area community foundation touts benefits to rural areas By JIM FALL

Executive editor

The concept can be explained in various ways, but the question is the same. “How you gonna keep the kids down on the farm, once they’ve seen K.C.?” Or Chicago? Or Atlanta, or L.A., or New York? As a result of a burgeoning movement exemplified by the Nebraska Community Foundation, there is a renewed effort by rural areas to retain young people and family wealth. A similar foundation, now in its third year, is making a related effort on behalf of an 18-county area of northwest Missouri. Jeff Yost, president and CEO of the 16-year-old Nebraska foundation, addressed members of the Missouri group Friday at the Holiday Inn in St. Jo-

seph. “Rural America is awash in capital, and we should not be hemorrhaging kids,” Yost said. Before explaining how to change a culture that seems to encourage the migration of talent and wealth to metropolitan areas as younger generations move away — ultimately taking their inheritances with them — Yost said the problem is not as complex as some believe. “Community development is not rocket science,” he said. “We know how to put a man on the moon.” Yost said sustainability in rural areas involves empowering leaders with the skills and confidence needed to build a local endowment. “Good ideas generate investments, not vice versa,” he said. “When the wealth that has been accumulated by cur-

rent and prior generations leaves an area, it is gone forever. “When it becomes part of an endowment, it is here forever. “But we have to do something, now. We have to get over the idea that we are a poor place. Money is not a barrier (to population) retention, it is a tool to help change attitudes.” Yost concluded his remarks with a catchy phrase. “We are not giving kids luggage for graduation any more,” he said. Former Heartland Health president Lowell Kruse serves as chairman of the Community Foundation of Northwest Missouri, and Mary Hinde of St. Joseph is

the group’s president. The regional foundation’s board of directors includes Jim Blackford of Citizens Bank & Trust in Maryville. Radio personality Andrew McCrea of King City also spoke at the meeting, telling of his community’s involvement with the foundation. Residential Glass Replacement • Storefronts

Five people were injured Friday shortly before 8 p.m. in a two-car collision at Highway 71 and Route M fourteen miles south of Maryville. According to the Missouri State Highway patrol, the accident occurred when a 2013 Toyota Highlander driven westbound on M by Nicole R. Lutz, 28, Powersville, struck a 2008 Pontiac Grand Am being driven northbound on 71 by Catrina G. Pelton, 34, Maryville. The patrol report stated that Lutz, who was alone in her vehicle, attempted to enter the four-lane after having stopped at a stop sign and was struck by the Pontiac on the driver’s side. Lutz suffered minor injuries, according to the patrol. All four people in the Pelton vehicle were hurt as well. In addition to Pelton, who suffered moderate injuries, the three other victims were: Dalton D. Hughes, 10, Maryville, minor injuries; Jerry D. Hughes, 35, Maryville, moderate injuries; and Zach T. Hughes, 15, Maryville, minor injuries. All five people involved in the wreck were wearing seat belts. Pelton and the three Hugheses were taken by ambulance to St. Francis Hospital. Lutz was treated at the scene. Both vehicles were reported totaled. Troopers D. Reuter, G. Vernon and R. Dudeck were assisted in working the accident by the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Department and Maryville first responders.

January is time to tease brain

January is International Brain Teasers Month. What better time than now to test your knowledge and learn a few things at the same time? With that in mind (pun intended), tease your brain with these bits of Social Security trivia. Brain Teasers: 1. When was the Social Security Act signed into law, and who signed it? 2. Who received the very first Social Security check? (Careful — this may be a trick question!)

Danny Zimmerman 3. When did Social Security begin paying disability benefits? 4. Who received the first monthly Social Security check? (Not the same person as in question number two!) 5. When did Social Security begin paying Supplemental Security Income benefits, or SSI? 6. Is there any significance to the digits in your Social Security number — or are they just random? Answers: 1. The Social Security Act was signed into law on August 14, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In fact, we even have a picture of it at www.socialsecurity. gov/history/fdrsign.html. 2. The first person to receive a Social Security payment was Ernest Ackerman. But he did not receive a monthly benefit. During the start-up period of Social Security, between January 1937 and December 1939, people who paid into the system received a lump-sum payment when they retired.

Mr. Ackerman got a whopping lump-sum payment of 17 cents. Not bad considering he only contributed a nickel. 3. Although there were discussions about disability benefits between Congress and the White House as early as 1936, Social Security disability benefits did not become law until 1956. Learn more about disability benefits and how they can help at www.socialsecurity. gov/disability. 4. Ida May Fuller was the first person to receive a regular monthly Social Security payment. Her monthly payment was more than Ernest Ackerman’s lump sum. Beginning on January 31, 1940, she received $22.54 each month. She collected benefits (with no payment increase for the first ten years) until she passed away at the age of 100, in 1975. 5. Social Security began making SSI payments in 1974. SSI pays benefits to people who have low income, limited resources, and who are 65 or older, disabled, or blind. Learn more about how SSI can help at 6. Whether the digits in your Social Security number have any meaning depends on when it was originally issued to you. Until June 2011, the first three digits were assigned based on the geographical region in which the person resided. Generally, numbers were assigned beginning in the Northeast and moving westward. So people on the East Coast have the lowest numbers and those on the West Coast have the highest numbers. The remaining six digits in the number are more or less random and facilitated the manual bookkeeping operations that began with the creation of Social Security in the 1930s. As of June 2011, all numbers are randomly assigned without regard to region. Want to learn more about Social Security and the agency’s history? There’s more to enjoy on Social Security’s history page. Tease your brain at Danny Zimmerman is the Social Security District Manager in Maryville.

‘Election ’14’ is critical vote for the survival of America

2014 is an election year for 100 percent of our Congress people and about one third of our senators at the federal level. If conservatives retain the House of Representatives and gain control of the Senate, America has a chance. If the unthinkable occurs and the House is lost while the Left retains control of the Senate, we will become a socialist country with the speed of a sled careening downhill on an inch of ice. The approaching election is critical. Right now, the only counter to Obama’s unflinching determination to achieve egalitarian-based “social justice” is the House of Representatives. The Left controls the presidency, the Senate, the Justice Department, 44 percent of the Supreme Court, and every bureaucracy in D.C., a far more serious situation than many realize. ObamaCare certainly underscores the circumstances in which this situation has placed us. For the Left, it is merely a start. What can we expect to hear from the Left as we head into the new year with an election pending in November? There will be plenty of the following stressed through wild emotion, accusation, and the willful manipulation of truth. Please question everything; accept nothing; investigate all. Much emphasis will be placed on countering the Tea Party which isn’t a party at all in any official sense. It is a conservative movement once known as the Silent Majority. You can expect Tea Party members to be excoriated by the Left as reactionary, out of touch, and detrimental to Obama’s vision of a nation controlled by Big Government. What the Tea Party really wants is a small, accountable federal government that will spend responsibly and tax less. That is hardly unreasonable, but the

Tea Party will be presented as the enemy like never before. The problem for the Left is the Tea Party is loosely organized and will not likely put forth a national platform. It is most effective on a local and regional level; therefore, it is hard to measure the breadth of its influence. I also suspect the Tea Party is larger than many may realize and that the movement is growing due to Obama’s lies and failures. That

Larry Anderson is problematic for liberals. When cornered or uncertain, they turn mean. Expect attacks on the Tea Party to be vicious; pay attention to how the Left and its hand puppet, Big Media, handle it. More and more emphasis from the Left will be placed on the so-called divide between the wealthy one per cent and everyone else. This is nothing new. Class warfare has been part of the liberal attack for at least a hundred years. It will be a plank in the Left’s platform this year, but understand, among other things, it is leading to Obama’s demand for a tax increase on those earning $250,000

or more annually, an aggressive starting number. Watch to see if the figure drops lower and lower as we approach the election and as wealth is redefined to suit Obama’s social/ political agenda. Understand a tax increase on the wealthy does not automatically translate to a reduction in poverty or debt. Once money goes to Washington, it can be spent however those elected designate. Class warfare is a strategy, not a guarantee of money well spent or of “social justice,” but no one sells this junk better than the indoctrinated Lefties who have nested in D.C. Just so you know, high taxes do not lead to a better way of life for the many. It does lead to more power for the elected and appointed few. The Left will ramp up their rhetoric on the so-called “War on Women,” which only seems to show up during an election year. The charges against the Right will be unfounded and unsubstantiated, but the message plays well to the victim class. I read an account recently in which the liberal writer actually suggested if women weren’t careful, conservatives would take away their right to vote. That’s how absurd it can get. The “War on Women” theme is fiction. It implies deliberate, insidious, and covert acts of sexism. It suggests conservatives have nothing better to do than to plot how to diminish the role of women in this society. To what end? The notion that liberals alone treat women fairly is ridiculous. If a liberal starts haranguing about the “War on Women,” there is a sure way to stop him/her cold. Just say, “Prove it.” Watch how hurriedly the subject changes or how quickly the tone becomes shrill. Remember, too, dawn always follows a long dark night. Larry W. Anderson contemplated journalism at NWMSU.

Fitness center proposed Continued from Page 1 center could cost nearly $3 million, most of which would come from the university’s budget and a percredit-hour student fee. Tjeerdsma says, however, the fee will not go into effect until the project is completed. Memberships for campus fitness centers typically range from $70 per semester to $125 for one calendar year. “With schools like Central Missouri and NebraskaOmaha having nice fitness centers, we want to be competitive in the marketplace,” Baker said. “It really seems like it’s the right time to reinvest in the campus, to have something that students are

really excited about.“ The planning team has proposed a fee of $4 per credit hour. The fee would apply to all students, and the fitness center would have no membership charge. One of the factors influencing the plan is the need to provide more space in Lamkin Activity Center for varsity athletics. Some teams’ locker rooms compare to those in “junior high,” according to Tjeerdsma, who called the facilities “kind of embarrassing.” Though it would be the most advanced workout space at Northwest, Tjeerdsma said the proposed facility would be strictly for general student use and not for Bearcats athletics. The planning group has

chosen Convergence Design in Kansas City to develop a preliminary design and is searching for a project manager. “This is a much better opportunity for (students) to take care of their fitness needs,” Tjeerdsma said. The aquatic center closed in Feb. 2012 due to university budget cuts. The planning panel hopes to gain university approval for the project this spring. EDITOR’S NOTE: This article first appeared in the Northwest Missourian, the student newspaper at Northwest Missouri State University, and is used by permission. The Daily Forum thanks the Northwest Missourian for its cooperation.


Northwest Missouri State University and the city of Maryville worked together to establish a total of four recycling sites around town. A survey currently being conducted by the Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments is part of an effort to establish similar cooperative recycling efforts across the five-county region.

Recycling is main focus Continued from Page 1 state and federal environmental agencies. By way of contrast, Laderoute said, Northwest Missouri State University conducted a study a while back that indicated 60 percent of the institution’s waste stream could be recycled. Taking advantage of a couple of grants and the mechanical ingenuity of its in-house maintenance crews, Laderoute said, Northwest has been able to bring a recycling system online that netted the university $36,000 in revenue last year. Northwest also helped the city of Maryville promote its own recycling efforts by building and installing three portable glass, paper and cardboard bins behind City Hall and at Beal and Sisson-Eek parks. A fourth bin is located at the university’s alternative fuel “pellet plant” on the west side of campus. All of this is well and good, Laderoute said, but the fact is that many Nodaway Countians still don’t recycle because, bluntly stated, there’s no money in it. Private garbage haulers in Maryville and other Nodaway County towns charge flat rates, meaning that homeowners pay the same whether they throw away 20 pounds of trash a week or 200. Also, Laderoute admits, for the average citizen, the cost of transporting and sorting recyclable waste is

probably always going to exceed the return. In other words, it’s a service people are going to have to pay for. The trick, she said, is convincing people that a small recycling bill is a fair trade for avoiding the tax increases that will be needed to cover the cost of closed landfills and mandated site cleanups. “People should realize that recycling is in the best interest of the environment, and that it really does help the community,” Laderoute said. To that end, Laderoute, who is responsible for promoting recycling in Nodaway, Atchison, Gentry, Holt and Worth counties, is currently conducting on online survey, data from which will be used to apply for grants that would enhance recycling opportunities throughout the fivecounty region. The survey, which closes March 15, takes less than five minutes to complete and can be filled out online at www.surveymonkey. com/s/nwmorecycles. Paper surveys are available at the Regional Council office at 114 W. Third St. in Maryville and city and county clerks’ offices throughout the five-county region. By getting a handle on existing waste-disposal practices and attitudes, Laderoute said, cities and counties should be able to design recycling programs that meet the real needs of residents, rather than trying to impose a one-size-

Severe frigid weather taxes propane supplies BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A cold snap is stretching supplies of propane gas and causing transportation bottlenecks across a broad section of the United States, sending everyone from rural educators to chicken farmers in search of enough fuel to keep warm in a economical way. Governors and federal regulators already have taken the rare step of loosening transportation rules for about 33 states in the South, Midwest and East to allow additional hours for truckers

to deliver propane and keep up with demand Prices are spiking, and many are worried that a propane crunch will worsen in coming days as temperatures get even colder and demand rises, sending prices even higher and stretching supplies further. Some are questioning what’s driving the spike in prices. U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, sent a letter Thursday to the Federal Trade Commission asking for oversight of the propane market.

fits-all system from the top down. “We’re trying to put together a good picture of the recycling needs of each individual community,” Laderoute said. After the data is analyzed, Laderoute plans to assemble a “tool kit” of resources that local governments can use to design, and fund, their own recycling efforts. “The tool kit will allow towns and counties to decide ‘This is what we’re going to do, and this is how we’re going to pay for it,” Laderoute said. She added that resources included in the tool kit will likely include grant opportunities like the recycling bin program offered jointly by the Coca-Cola Foundation and Keep America Beautiful, a non-profit antilitter organization. “What I would like to see is a recycling network developed throughout the region,” Laderoute said. “In some communities that may be just a volunteer with a pickup truck. But it doesn’t have to be complicated. There just has to be something there.”

Blood shortage at critical stage


Donors are shown giving blood late last year during a Community Blood Center drive in the fellowship hall of Maryville’s First United Methodist Church.

Center needs donors KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Officials at Community Blood Center, the sole-source blood products supplier for St. Francis Hospital & Health Services and other healthcare institutions across the region, is asking Nodaway Countians to step up in order to stem a serious decline in blood donations. According to local donor recruitment representative Betty Tinker, CBC saw a significant decrease in the amount of blood donated during the last two weeks of January. This, coupled with the demand for blood by area hospitals, has left the supply critically low. “We started to see a decline in late December and haven’t recovered,” said Patsy Shipley, CBC’s vice president of donor and hospital services. “The lack of donations over the past few weeks has put the blood supply in an extremely critical state. We actually have less than a half-day supply on our shelves.” The next blood drive in Maryville will take place from noon-6 p.m. tomorrow at the First United Methodist Church, located

at 102 N. Main St. To make an appointment, go to and click “schedule an appointment.” “We need for the upcoming blood drive at the United Methodist Church to help pull us up out of the declining blood supplies we have been experiencing,” Tinker said. “Please let everyone know of the serious situation the blood supply is in at this time. We need the help of all to change this.” Shipley said CBC and other blood centers around the country are experiencing shortages due to severe weather and influenza, factors that have combined to keep people at home and away from local blood drives. In some places, she said, blood shortages have forced surgeons to delay or cancel procedures. “We are asking all eligible blood donors to donate at a local blood drive and to please bring a friend or family member with them,” Shipley said. “Every single donation will help at least two hospital patients who rely on life-saving blood.”

North Andrew sweeps Bluejays By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer


Over the ‘D’

Maryville freshman guard Trey Oglesby lines up a pull-up jumper in the third quarter against Savannah last Friday night. Oglesby finished with three points as the Spoofhounds lost 63-57 in overtime.

Hounds come of age against Savannah By JASON LAWRENCE Sports editor

Maryville may not have came away with a win Friday night against Savannah, but head coach Mike Kuwitzky finally saw what he had been waiting for all season — Spoofhound basketball. “I’m just proud as I can be of them; by far our best game of the year, without question,” Kuwitzky said. “I feel bad for them because I know they’re hurting because we lost, but I just told them, ‘that’s how Spoofhound basketball is (played).’ I think we got there tonight. We didn’t win, but we’re gonna win some games now. But that’s Spoofhound basketball.” Maryville came close to breaking out of its two-game skid, coming within seconds of completing an 11-point comeback and beating the rival Savages in regulation. After a tight first half, that saw Savannah take a one-point lead after the first quarter as Savannah’s Bert Ernst scored nine of the Savages 11 points, Maryville came back in the second quarter and took a 27-26 lead at the break behind eight points from junior point guard Hagen Snow, who hit a couple of clutch three-pointers to help give Maryville the advantage. In the third quarter, Savannah came out as the dominant team, outscoring

the Hounds 20-8 to take a commanding lead heading into the fourth quarter. Only Maryville wasn’t done. “The kids just showed great energy and started executing and playing harder,” Kuwitzky said. “They came of age tonight. We finally saw what we’ve been wanting to see all year that looked like our program. They jelled. They started doing it and making plays. Hopefully, we can build on it.” The Hounds flipped the script on the Savages and outscored them 20-9 in the fourth quarter and came a desperation heave away from winning in regulation. With 2:50 left to go and Savannah leading 51-45, freshman guard Spencer Morrison hit a pull-up jumper and fellow freshman Trey Oglesby avoided a turnover by spinning away from Ernst and hitting a three to pull Maryville within one point with 1:20 to play. Junior post Jacob Cacek hit four free throws down the stretch to give Maryville the lead twice, only Ernst was fouled twice on the other end and Savannah led 55-54. Then Snow came up with a steal near mid-court as Savannah tried to get down court and found senior forward Ty Hilsabeck rolling to the basket, where he was fouled. Hilsabeck hit the front end of

the one-and-one to tie it up at 55 with eight seconds left. “He played his heart out,” Kuwitzky said of Snow. “He played very good offense, played very good defense. And his energy was just so contagious, and a clutch steal there at the end.” Savannah called timeout to draw up a play, but with less than two seconds to play, Oglesby got a strip and launched a 55-foot prayer toward the rim. It fell short, forcing overtime. Morrison hit an early runner, but that was all the Hounds could muster in overtime as Savannah pulled away and claimed a 63-57 victory. Snow led Maryville with 14 points while Hilsabeck, Cacek, Morrison and sophomore forward Chip Dunlap each added eight points. Now with a little momentum, the Spoofhounds head to Cameron this week for the Cameron Tournament. The seventh seeded Hounds (4-11) take on second-seeded Lawson at 7 p.m. Tuesday night. “We’ve got a really tough opponent in the Cameron Tournament Tuesday,” Kuwitzky said. “They’re really playing well and they’re beating a lot of people, so not a great team to have to rebound against, but as long as we can keep playing like this, we’re going to get some wins.”

Neither Northeast Nodaway basketball team could hold down home court on Friday night against North Andrew. The girls game tipped of at 6 p.m. in Ravenwood and North Andrew jumped ahead right from the get-go. The Cardinals outscored the Lady Jays 25-6 in the opening quarter and they carried that lead throughout the whole game. The Lady Jays weren’t able to close the gap any throughout the game and ended up losing 66-41. Senior Holly Redden led Northeast Nodaway with 11 points. Fellow senior Taryn Farnan add nine potions of her own and sophomores Dallis Coffelt and Jill Spire each scored seven. With the loss, Northeast Nodaway drops to 9-8 on the season. The Northeast Nodaway boys were able to jump out to an early lead in their game, leading 9-6 at the end of the first quarter, but trailed 22-20 at the half. The Bluejays could only muster four third quarter points, which put them far enough behind that they weren’t able to mount a comeback. Northeast Nodaway lost the game 56-42. Junior Garet Jackson led the Bluejays in scoring with 21 points, half of the teams total 42. Seniors Shaun Burns and Joel Scroggie helped out with 10 and nine points, respectively. The Bluejays dropped to 4-13 on the season with that home loss. The Bluejays will host Craig/Fairfax for their third straight home game on Tuesday night. Tip-off for the girls game will be at 6 p.m. in Ravenwood, with the boys game to follow at 7:30 p.m.

Big first quarter powers West Nodaway boys By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

West Nodaway junior point guard Trevor Meyer led a strong first-quarter Rocket attack that overwhelmed North Nodaway and allowed the Rockets to roll to a 62-40 victory in 275 Conference action Friday night in Hopkins. Meyer scored 12 points in the opening stanza and the Rockets jumped out to a 26-7 first-quarter lead and were never challenged from that point on. “We came out and played with a lot of energy early,” West Nodaway coach Roger Johnson said. “I was pleased to see that since we had played the night before.” North Nodaway played much better in the second quarter, behind seven points by sophomore Ben Hart, but still found itself trailing the Rockets 43-22 at halftime. Early in the third quarter, the Rockets lost leading scorer Jaden Gillenwater to a sprained ankle, which was one big negative on a night full of positives for the Rockets.

“We have a non-conference game with Albany on Tuesday,” Johnson said, “so we have some time to get Jaden ready for conference games.” The Rockets extended their lead to 5430 by the end of the third quarter. North Nodaway outscored the Rockets 10-8 in the fourth quarter, cutting the final margin to 22. “We moved the ball well on offense, and we had some kids step up fill in for Jaden after he went out,” Johnson said. Meyer paced the Rockets’ offensive attack with 20 points and 11 assists. Senior Jonathon Madere added 11 points and junior Ryan Evans pitched in with 10 for West Nodaway, which is now 10-5 on the season. Hart led the Mustangs, 1-14 on the season, with 11 points. North Nodaway travels to South Page high school in Iowa tonight, with the girls game scheduled to tip off at 6 p.m. West Nodaway will host Albany tomorrow night, and the girls game will start at 6 p.m.

North Nodaway girls run by Lady Rockets at home By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

North Nodaway used full-court defensive pressure and hot first-quarter shooting to jump out to a 25-3 first quarter lead and never looked back in downing the visiting West Nodaway Lady Rockets 62-25 in 275 Conference action Friday night in Hopkins. “We got off to a good start and put the game away early, which is what we wanted to do,” North Nodaway head coach Doug Freemyer said. “Our press was very effective and we had good balance on offense.” West Nodaway matched the Lady Mustangs on the second quarter scoreboard and at half, the Lady Mustangs led by a 38-16 margin. A strong third quarter put the Lady Mustangs in control 55-21 and Bethany Herndon’s four fourth-quarter points allowed North Nodaway to outscore the Lady Rockets 7-4 in the fourth period, providing the final score. Senior Cambry Schluter led the Lady Mustangs, now 7-8 on the season, with 18 points while teammates freshman Madison

Thompson and junior Sam Frueh added 12 and 11 points, respectively. However, it was a player that didn’t score a point in the game that drew the praise of Freemyer for things that can’t be measured by the box score. “Erin Greeley is our senior point guard. She moved from a wing position to the point this season and she’s done a great job,” Freemyer said. “She shows a lot of poise, gets the ball to her teammates where they need it and plays outstanding defense. She’s such an important part of our team whether she scores or not because of everything else she does for us.” The Lady Rockets, now 0-13 on the season, were led by freshman Cheyenne Herzberg, who scored nine points and senior Emily Cordell, who added seven in the losing effort. North Nodaway travels to South Page (Iowa) High School tonight with the girls game scheduled to tip off at 6 p.m., and the boys game to follow. West Nodaway will host Albany tomorrow night, with the girls game scheduled to tip off at 6 p.m., and the boys game to tip around 7:30 p.m.

Off hand


Nodaway-Holt senior Megan Rosenbohm splits three Mound City defenders on the way to two of her game-high 27 points. Nodaway-Holt downed the Lady Panthers 58-52 Friday night in Mound City.

Lady Trojans rally for win By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Nodaway-Holt found itself in a rare situation Friday night in Mound City, trailing 275 Conference foe Mound City 24-19 at half and coach David Carroll wasn’t pleased. “We did not have a good first half,” Carroll said. “We shot poorly, we didn’t hustle, we didn’t rebound and we committed several stupid fouls.” Using both the halftime deficit and coach Carroll’s halftime words as motivation, the Lady Trojans outscored Mound City 19-8 in the third quarter en route to a 58-52 victory. After grabbing a 38-32 lead at the end of the third quarter, the Lady Trojans matched Mound City’s 20-point fourth quarter effort

for the final margin. “Everything we did wrong in the first half, we did right in the second half,” Carroll said. The Lady Trojans, now 15-0 overall and 3-0 in the 275 Conference, were once again led by senior guard Megan Rosenbohm, who led all scorers with 27 points. Fellow senior Darcie Gallagher chipped in with nine points and sophomore Jordan Long added eight for Class 1’s top-ranked team. “Megan played well and Darcie had another good game for us,” Carroll said. “Jordan Long came off the bench and did a great job inside and on the boards.” Next action for the Lady Trojans is tonight, as they play host to Worth County. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.

Longhorns withstand late run By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer

The South Nodaway girls basketball team came into its game Friday night against Jefferson as winners of six of its last eight games. Despite how hot the Longhorns have been, they came out ice cold to start the game. They only scored one field goal in the first quarter and trailed 6-5 after the opening period. “We did play some more zone tonight than we did the first time (we played them),” Jefferson head coach Tyler Pedersen said. “The girls do a pretty good job, but I don’t think either team shot real well in the first quarter.” Shots started to fall for South Nodaway in the second quarter and the Lady Horns took a 17-10 lead at the half. The teams nearly went shot-for-shot in the third quarter with South Nodaway holding a 25-17 advantage going into the final quarter. Jefferson opened up the fourth quarter on an 8-0 run, tying the game at 25 midway through the period. “We knocked down a few shots and we started pressing a bit” Pedersen said. “I think we drew a little bit of aggressiveness off of the press.”

After Jefferson tied up the game, both teams started hitting shots, but clutch fourth-quarter free throw shooting by South Nodaway, which went 6-for-8 in the quarter, was the difference. “Jefferson is a very good basketball team,” South Nodaway head coach Aaron Murphy said. “They can score points and they can get hot. They’re young, but they still have that ‘never quit’ mentality. We knew they were going to have a run and we made it a point that we would weather the storm and play smart basketball.” South Nodaway came away with the 3731 victory. Jefferson drops to 7-9 with the loss and South Nodaway kept up it winning ways, improving to 11-4. Freshman Kelsi McQuinn led the Eagles in scoring with 13 potions. Sophomore Jessie Henry added nine points. South Nodaway was led in scoring by freshman Mallory McConkey, who scored 10 points. Junior Kristen Nielson scored nine points in the winning effort. The Longhorns will travel to Graham to play the Nodaway-Holt Lady Trojans on Tuesday night. Jeffferson will open up play in the North Platte Tournament tonight as the No. 3 seed against No. 6-seeded Maur Hill at 4:30 in Dearborn.

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The Maryville wrestling team took seventh place at the Midland Empire Conference meet and had two wrestlers finish in the top three in their weight classes last Saturday at Springer Gymnasium inside Benton High School.

Jefferson blows by Horns By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer

The Jefferson and South Nodaway boys basketball teams met for the second time this year last Friday night, and the result was still the same as the first matchup. The first game was played in the opening round of the Stanberry Tournament with Jefferson coming away with a 45-37 victory. This time the game was played in Barnard, but South Nodaway couldn’t use home court to its advantage. Strong defense and hot shooting for the Eagles led them to outscore the Longhorns by 20 in the first half, leading 34-14 at halftime. “Their physical and emotional intensity out of the gate was more than ours,” South Nodaway head coach Dustin Skoglund said. “We played them in a close game in the Stanberry Tournament, but we knew we were going to have to match or exceed that and we didn’t do that. We came out flat and you can’t do that against a team of that caliber.” Jefferson had lost its last three games coming into the matchup with South Nodaway and hoped to pick its intensity back up against the Longhorns. “I think that we lost our focus of (defensive intensity) in the last three games,” Jefferson head coach Tim Jermain said. “They watched some film and they saw some lack of intensity. I thought we just did a better

job on the defensive end tonight. Still, we didn’t get off to a great start offensively, but we didn’t allow them to score a lot of points in the first half.” While South Nodaway outscored Jefferson in the second half 24-23, it wasn’t enough to erase the big halftime deficit. “We switched form the zone press and half court zone to a full-court man with a lot more ball pressure and tried to go set more traps (in the second half),” Skoglund said. “We figured we would try to match their physical intensity. It was a pretty physical game on the perimeter and we needed to be able to match their physicality and I think we were able to match that in the second half.” Jefferson came away with the win in this one, 57-38. Seniors Zeb Coleman and Dalton Murphy led the Longhorns in scoring, each putting in seven points. Junior Logan Murphy also chipped in with six points. Senior Kyler Farnan led the Eagles’ attack with 13 points. Fellow senior Zach Carmichael added 11 points of his own. The Longhorns dropped to 6-9 with the loss and Jefferson improved to 12-5. South Nodaway will travel to play the Nodaway-Holt Trojans on Tuesday night as the second half of a double-header. Jefferson opens up play in the North Platte Tournament as the No. 4 seed and will play No. 5 Maur Hill tonight at 6 p.m. in Dearborn.

NWMSU tennis seeded in MIAA preseason polls KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Northwest Missouri State men’s tennis team was picked to repeat its 2013 MIAA title and the women’s tennis team was seeded fourth in the 2014 MIAA Preseason Tennis Coaches Polls, released by the conference office last Friday. The Bearcat men’s team is looking for the program’s fifth-consecutive title, winning the MIAA in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The women’s team finished fourth last season, advancing to the conference semifinal round. Behind the Bearcat men’s team are Washburn, Southwest Baptist and Lindenwood and Nebraska-Kearney tied

for fourth place. Emporia State is ranked fifth. Northwest received all five possible first-place votes, as coaches were not allowed to vote for their own institutions. On the women’s side, Southwest Baptist received 10 first place votes, followed by Northeastern State and Central Oklahoma. Nebraska-Kearney was ranked fifth. The women’s schedule opens on Feb. 22 against Maryville College in St. Joseph. The men’s team opens on March 1 against St. Cloud State in Grand Island, Neb. The first home matches for both Bearcat squads are scheduled for March 6 against Cameron University at 1 p.m.

Tough shot


Nodaway-Holt senior NIck Patterson rises up in the lane for two points in Friday night’s 56-55 victory over Mound City. Patterson finished with 14 points on the night.

Trojans continue cardiac comeback efforts By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

For the third time in a week, the Nodaway-Holt Trojans used a frantic fourthquarter comeback to pick up a victory. After fourth-quarter victories over Tarkio in the third place game of the Fairfax Tournament and Union Star earlier in the week, Nodaway-Holt downed 275 conference rival Mound City 56-55 Friday night in Mound City. The Trojans found themselves trailing 15-13 at the end of the first quarter and the Panthers stretched the lead to 28-23 by halftime. Nodaway-Holt trailed 41-35 heading in to the dramatic fourth quarter. “We did a great job of executing down the stretch,” Trojan coach Terry Petersen said. “Plus, we had some timely shooting from the field and we were 14-of-16 from the foul line.” Mound City grabbed its final lead of the game at 55-54 on a putback off of an offensive rebound and the Trojans called timeout with nine seconds to go. “I wasn’t sure which press Mound City

would use, so we set up both of our pressbreakers in the time out,” Petersen said. The Panthers came out in a full-court zone press and Brice Shamberger took the inbounds passed and found an open Nick Patterson just across half-court. Patterson then made a long diagonal pass to an open Jackson Beattie, who calmly dropped in the game-winning layup with two seconds to go. “We couldn’t have executed the pressbreaker any better,” Petersen said. “Our senior leadership really showed up.” Beattie lead Nodaway-Holt with 16 points, while Shamberger and Patterson added 14 points apiece for the Trojans, now 9-7 overall and 2-1 in the conference. “We’re still in control of our own destiny in the conference race and our kids are pretty excited about it,” Petersen said. “Finding ways to win these last three games has given us some confidence and we need to continue to build on that.” Next action for the Trojans is tonight, when they host Worth County in non-conference action. The girls game starts at 6 p.m., with the boys contest to follow.

An Unusual Bid for a Rare Situation

Each row, column and set of 3-by-3 boxes must contain the numbers 1 through 9 without repetition.

Jim Rohn, an entrepreneur and a motivational speaker who died in 2009, said, “If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordi-

a wounded ego. Don’t allow things to spin out of control. Finish housework and then take time to enjoy each other. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Combine work with pleasure. Socialize with colleagues and clients. Changes in a relationship will be welcome. Take a leap when it comes to commitment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take time for self-improvement. Make the physical and mental adjustments necessary to raise your self-esteem. If you feel confident, success will follow. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t overreact with loved ones. Family members may be needy and take advantage. This will leave you feeling depressed and used. Don’t offer help or ask for any. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You can forge meaningful friendships today. Attend social functions, and romantic opportunities will arise. Travel and social gatherings will increase your popularity. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You will be duped if you invest in joint financial ventures. Be discerning as to the people you do business with. Difficulties with female colleagues are evident. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Avoiding emotional conflict will not improve matters. Tell the truth and learn just where you stand. Don’t take financial risks that may lead to losses. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -You may have a secret nemesis. Be careful what you reveal to others. Be precise in your communication, or you will be misunderstood. Issues with superiors or authority figures are likely.

nary.” It is true that at the bridge table, producing an unusual bid might not be a good idea if it is going to flummox partner into making an error. But if you have discussed the situation before, you can safely produce the unusual. Look at today’s North hand. You deal and open three hearts. With the opponents retaining a respectful silence, your partner responds four diamonds. Assuming this is natural and forcing, what would you rebid? What does four diamonds promise? Many teachers use the expression “six and 16” -- at least a six-card suit and 16 highcard points. Also, typically, responder is very short in opener’s suit, especially when that is a major. How should opener react? With no support for responder’s suit, he may rebid his own suit or three no-trump (if legal, of course). With moderate support, like a low doubleton (or perhaps honor-

doubleton with an unappealing hand), he raises responder’s suit. But with good support (any three cards, or honor-doubleton and an appealing hand), he shows a side-suit singleton (or void). In this deal, North should rebid four spades. And that is just what South wants to hear. He can now leap majestically to six diamonds. Note that even after a club lead and trump shift, the contract is laydown. South takes one spade, one heart, eight diamonds and two spade ruffs on the board.

Northwest potters display in Kansas gallery By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer

Two ceramics artists who developed their pottery style at Northwest Missouri State University will display their work next Saturday in Highland, Kan.

ries. “My inspiration has been graffiti and street art,” Pluskota said. “A few semesters ago I started using spray paint and different kinds of paint, even nail polish, on clay. I really wanted to get that vibrant, street art sort

‘Simmons and Pluskota have already done one exhibit together — the “Party Arty” at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City in 2013.’ Kim Pluskota, scheduled to graduate in May, and J. Eric Simmons, who graduated last May, attended Northwest together from 2010 to 2013. They worked under the same professors and in the same studios, but their work is quite different. Pluskota developed an abstract, design-oriented approach, whereas Simmons works in a more traditional style emphasizing pottery’s connection with the earth. “I was inspired by ceramic from and how it was used in ancient Greek and Roman times,” Simmons said. “I enjoy looking back at it and trying to bring it to the style of today.” Pluskota, on the other hand, is thoroughly rooted in the 20th and 21st centu-

of feel. … The concept is just still exploring graffiti art and street art but making it on a surface that’s not permanently attached to the wall.” Pluskota used spray paint and layers of painters tape on clay to make some of the pieces that will be on display at Highland (Kan.) Community College’s Yost Gallery. “I changed up what I was doing to make (the pottery) look more rounded. They look more like turtle shells, which I wasn’t intending” Pluskota said. “I was just trying to create an organic type surface that was raising up off the wall, kind of like a canvas that was wanting to float.” Pluskota envisions her art


A heart for art

Northwest Missouri State University art student Kim Pluskota is shown with examples of her pottery in the Fire Arts Building at Northwest Missouri State University. Pluskota, along with Northwest alumnus J. Eric Simmons, will be featured in an art show at Highland Community College’s Yost Gallery in Highland, Kan., on Feb 1. as something that can either be hung up in someone’s home or on a rusty nail on a brick wall. Simmons and Pluskota have already done one exhibit together — the “Party Arty” at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas

City in 2013. “The predominant reason why I chose to do this show with Kim is because of the rapport that we had built through being in college and in the studio together,” Simmons said. “We developed a really good working rela-

tionship, and I find it interesting that we could be so close to one another artistically and as friends, yet still have such variance in our work. I’m excited to have the opportunity to show my work with one of my dear friends.”

Says Pluskota about the friends’ differing styles: “It’s the fun contrast of two artists that are from the same space but who are inspired by different things and have our own ideas and concepts that we are trying to share with the audience.”
