Record numbers for Chamber’s spring home show By TONY BROWN News editor

What a difference a year makes. This year’s Northwest Missouri Home and Better Living Show — with the help of perfect spring weather and an improved planning process leading up to the event – scored big on Sunday with twice the number of vendors and a steady crowd of potential customers browsing the booths and checking out the displays.

‘This is a great opportunity for the community to see what we have to offer.’ — Erick Auxier Mozingo Lake Recreation Park

Maryville Daily Forum Publisher Phil Cobb said the event, which was hosted by the Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce at the Community Center, benefitted from a greater amount of advanced planning, which has been going on for several weeks. The fact that this year’s show, unlike the 2013 edition, didn’t take place during a late-winter storm doubtless helped as well. Melanie Smith, executive director of the Maryville Chamber, credited the home show’s success with “a great group of volunteers” who concentrated on seeking out potential vendors that would be a “good fit for the this type of event” as well as working to increase awareness about the exhibition among the general public. The show is now in its fourth year, and Smith said merchants in both Maryville and surrounding

communities are coming to view it as a solid opportunity to reach out to new customers as the weather warms, and the annual round of home repairs, gardening and outdoor recreational activities begins. She noted that most of the vendors who participated last year came back again in 2014, and that the show is gradually making a regional reputation for itself. In addition to Maryville merchants, businesses represented at Sunday’s event came from as far away as Omaha, Neb., as well as neighboring towns like Clarinda, Iowa; Stanberry; and Burlington Junction. “It’s a great chance for our (Chamber) members to get out and show what they have going on,” Smith said. “We also want people to know that Maryville is a great place to live, work and play. So this is great for families — a place where everyone can go together on Sunday afternoon. It’s just a fun event for everybody.” For many local residents, the show was the first chance to view the city of Maryville’s new marketing display advertising Mozingo Lake Recreation Park. The backdrop is decorated with full color images of the park’s golf course and camping, fishing and boating facilities beneath the phrase “Change your … destination.” Visually the display is of a piece with a comprehensive branding initiative for the park designed last year by marketing students at Northwest Missouri State University. Mozingo Operations Manager Erick Auxier spent the home show handing out fliers and answering questions about the park while standing beside the display’s small, portable putting green. “This is a great opportunity for the community to see what we have to offer,” Auxier said of city parSee CHAMBER, Page 5

Home and Better Living Show


More than 50 vendors, along with over 600 potential customers, attended Sunday’s fourth annual Northwest Missouri Home and Better Living Show at the Maryville Community Center. Items on display included everything from skin care products and kitchenware to replacement windows and an underground storm shelter.

Event rids homes of waste, old tires By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Hazardous waste collection


A Tradebe Environmental Services worker sorts through some of the household waste dropped off by area residents Saturday during a Northwest Missouri Solid Waste Management District collection event.




Participation levels were high at the Northwest Missouri Solid Waste Management District’s hazardous household waste and tire collection event that took place from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday at the Nodaway County maintenance barn in Maryville. “We had the perfect day for our waste collection event,” said Linda Laderoute, the environmental planner for the Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments. “We had wonderful weather, hard working volunteers and great participation from our residents.” One hundred and seventy-two vehicles were driven through the collection area as residents dropped

off both waste and tires. By comparison, last year’s event recorded only 106 vehicles. Residents from Atchison, Holt, Gentry, Nodaway and Worth counties were allowed to participate in the event, which was limited to residential recyclers. Items accepted included fertilizer, pesticides, household chemicals (bleach, ammonia and cleaners), batteries, compact fluorescent light bulbs, mercury, antifreeze, paint and varnish. “A Household Hazardous Waste Grant from the state Department of Natural Resources allows us to hire a team from Tradebe Environmental Services to handle, sort and categorize the household waste products,” Laderoute said.

CAPITOL NEWS New fines proposed for running stop signs JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A bill passed by the Missouri Senate would impose tougher penalties on drivers who run stop signs, if they cause crashes resulting in injury or death. The legislation would increase fines and require the suspension of driver’s licenses in certain cases of failing to yield the right of way. The bill would set a minimum fine of $500 and raise the maximum to $1,000 instead of the current $200 for violations resulting in injuries. For serious injuries, there would be a new minimum fine of $1,000, and the maximum would rise to $3,000 from the current $500. For violations resulting in fatalities, there were be a new minimum fine of $5,000, and the maximum would be raised to $10,000 from the current $1,000.

West Nodaway band back in competition


First year director Stephen Till conducts the West Nodaway R-I School Band while preparing for the annual district large-group contest on Friday at Northwest Missouri State University. The band will be participating in the Missouri State High School Activities Association’s district festival for the first time in six years.

West Nodaway returns to districts By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer

For the first time in six years, the West Nodaway R-I School Band will be performing at the Missouri State High School Activities Association District Band Festival this weekend. The band will be perform at 8 a.m. Friday in Charles Johnson Theater on the first floor of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University. Previous directors have opted not to travel to the yearly music festival, but first-year director Stephen Till decided it was time to return. “I’m excited,” Till said. “Six years is a long time, but I think these kids are going to be able to impress a lot of people.” The band consists of 22 students in both middle school and high school. When Till arrived at West Nodaway at the beginning of the year, one of the things he focused on with the students was getting back to the basics. “One thing I’ve worked on a lot this year is fundamentals and techniques,” Till said. “We play scales first thing when they come in. … Working on those fundamentals has made a huge difference. That’s something they hadn’t really been doing. … My phi-

losophy has been to teach them the fundamentals and stuff first, and then they’ll pick up their notes naturally.” And while learning to play an instrument is hard work, Till said he also thinks his students need to remember that making music is supposed to be fun. “We spend a lot of time playing and working, but we do have time just to have fun and hang out,” Till said. “I’ve tried to build more of a family atmosphere here than there’s ever been. The kids love it. That’s why I loved being in the (Bearcat Marching Band). I loved everyone I played with. And I’ve really worked hard to establish that here, and it’s caught on like fire.” At contest, the band will play American Spirit Overture by John Edmondson and Blazon by James Curnow. “Picking the pieces was a very fragile and difficult decision for me,” Till said. “I wanted to make sure we played something that has a lot of energy but at the same time wasn’t too complex. I spent a lot of time pulling songs out of the library and thinking to myself if I could hear this band playing it. Then, the very first time we played through them, it clicked, and I knew it was good for us.” Till said it was important for him to choose compositions that students

would actually enjoy playing. After preparing for the contest, the band had a scare when the performance schedule was released. “Initially when we got the schedule, West Nodaway wasn’t on it,” Till said. “So I started having a little panic attack. But I called them up, and they told me it was fine because the only reason we weren’t on it was because they used the spreadsheets from last year, which West Nodaway obviously wasn’t on. So that’s how we ended up getting placed first. We will play bright and early at 8 a.m.” And that’s not a problem as far as Till is concerned. “I’m kind of excited about that,” he said. “We get to be the ones to go in and kind of set the standard.” Till said the band that will take the stage at Northwest Friday is a different ensemble than the one he began teaching last fall. “I’m very proud of what these kids have done this year,” Till said. “They’ve really stepped up their performance, and really honed in on making themselves better and have strived to do better. I’m just excited for them to finally show off what they can do, and let everyone know that there are some good things going on at our high school.”

Property tax relief proposal fades JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Not too long ago, Missouri legislators were clamoring to provide relief to elderly homeowners from rapidly rising property taxes. Then the housing bubble burst, home values fell in some areas, and so did state revenues. Lawmakers allowed the expiration of a state program that had helped offset local property tax hikes for some seniors and disabled residents. With the economy again improving, some Missouri lawmakers now want to revive that property tax break. But this time, their propos-

als are being met with indifference — even opposition — from some of their colleagues. “It’s bad policy — the idea that the state government is going to subsidize a local government because their property taxes are too high,” said Sen. Brad Lager, R-Savannah. Lager’s opposition to this year’s property tax proposals is particularly notable because he voted to enact the same tax breaks in 2004, when he served in the House. His evolving view of property tax issues reveals how time, term limits and the recent recession

have changed the political dynamics at the Missouri Capitol. Of the 186 Missouri lawmakers who voted to overwhelmingly pass the 2004 property-tax-relief legislation, just 15 remain in the Legislature. Term limits have forced many of the rest to leave. That means few lawmakers remember the news conferences featuring seniors struggling to pay rising property tax bills, or the impassioned debates about whether the property tax relief should be given to seniors with low, middle or higher incomes. Some of the

newer lawmakers may not even know that the program existed, because it expired before they arrived. But even for those familiar with the program, the passage of time and the Great Recession’s hard hit to state revenues have changed beliefs on what the state can and should do with its limited resources. The property tax relief program is one of just several initiatives that no longer exist. “It’s not in the budget now, and I haven’t seen any movement toward that,” said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer, R-Columbia.

New fines proposed for running stop signs JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A bill passed by the Missouri Senate would impose tougher penalties on drivers who run stop signs, if they cause crashes resulting in injury or death. The legislation would

increase fines and require the suspension of driver’s licenses in certain cases of failing to yield the right of way. The bill would set a minimum fine of $500 and raise the maximum to $1,000 in-

stead of the current $200 for violations resulting in injuries. For serious injuries, there would be a new minimum fine of $1,000, and the maximum would rise to $3,000 from the current $500.

For violations resulting in fatalities, there were be a new minimum fine of $5,000, and the maximum would be raised to $10,000 from the current $1,000. The bill now goes to the House.

In Iditarod and retirement, Prep is Key

The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, held each March in Alaska, is one of the harshest, most challenging races known to man (or dog). Mushers embark on a race from Anchorage to Nome that takes between nine and 15 days. Contestants bear sub-zero temperatures with gale-force winds that can cause wind chills as low as negative 100 degrees Fahrenheit! It takes endurance, preparation, and care-

Danny Zimmerman ful planning to make it from start to finish. The same can be said for your race toward retirement and Social Security. No one would hit the trail without being ready for the challenges. Similarly, no worker today should be navigating toward retirement without a little bit of preparing, planning, and stick-to-itiveness. Choosing your steps is as important as selecting the right sled dogs. Your first step in planning for a comfortable retirement is to look at your Social Security Statement, which you can do online easily with a my Social Security account. The online Statement is easy to use and provides estimates you should consider in planning for your retirement. It provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits, making the Statement an important financial planning tool. Your Statement allows you to review and ensure your earnings are accurately posted to your Social Security record. This feature is important because Social Security benefits are based on average earnings over your lifetime. If the information is incorrect, or you have

earnings missing from your record, you may not receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled in the future. Visit www.socialsecurity. gov/myaccount to set up a my Social Security account and get started. Before heading into the snowy terrain, you want to make sure you have prepared for a number of different possible obstacles on the trail. For retirement planning, you’ll want to test out the Retirement Estimator to see how changes in your income, retirement age, and other variables may change your overall plan. Use our Retirement Estimator, where you can get a personalized, instant estimate of your future retirement benefits using different retirement ages and scenarios. Visit the Retirement Estimator at www. Out in the cold, you’ll be thankful for the provisions you’ve brought along. In retirement, you’ll understand why it was so important for you to save early on. The sooner you begin your financial planning, the better off you will be. Social Security replaces about 40 percent of the average worker’s pre-retirement earnings, but most financial advisors say that you will need 70 percent or more of pre-retirement earnings to live comfortably. You also will need other savings, investments, pensions or retirement accounts to make sure you have financial security to live comfortably when you retire. Visit the Ballpark Estimator for tips to help you save. You’ll find it at ballpark. Use our online library of publications as your trail map or guidebook to help you when it comes to planning for retirement. Check out When To Start Receiving Retirement Benefits. It and many other useful publications can be found at www. As you mush, mush, mush toward retirement, remember that it’s not about the destination, but all about the journey. Spending a little time to prepare along the way will make all the difference when you cross the finish line into retirement. Danny Zimmerman is the Social Security District Manager in Maryville.

A Changing Political Climate

I am not a scientist. I admit to not liking science to the extent that if a program connected to the discipline surfaces on TV, I will be reaching for the remote. I could not care less about the DNA of monkeys, the alignment of the planets, or the fusion of chemicals. I know that makes me vulnerable to the claims of those who do understand science because I do not have the scholarly means to refute what I suspect may be more political than scientific. I, like millions of others, depend on the legitimacy of the science community and the integrity of politicians to tell us the truth. That may be a mistake. We Americans tend to be trusting of those we elect. Since leaders are supposed to dissect critical situations and offer believable, workable solutions to the nation’s problems, we normally accept what we are told and get behind them for the perceived betterment of all. That said, I have long been a skeptic of the “warming planet” presentation that has been part of the political collision. The argument from environmentalists and liberals is the planet is heating due to man-made emissions coming from industry and autos. Carbon dioxide collecting in the atmosphere is impacting health and influencing weather. While that sounds logical, I think the global warming claim is exaggerated, perhaps bogus, due to the political behavior that has conjoined the argument. Call it a hunch. It is surely obvious by now that this president has directed an unprecedented amount of authority and autonomy to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In that scenario bureaucracies tend to act in their own interests and within the philosophical bend of the boss. All federal entities know regular folks

do not have ready means to refute governmental claims. I couldn’t help but notice the “global warming” phraseology that was once part of environmental hysteria has given way to “climate change,” a broader, more vague, and less accountable term. The reason for the switch is simple: “A UN report on the scientific data behind global warming released in September indicated that global surface

Larry Anderson temperatures have not increased for the past 15 years. . . ” (source: Krauthammer, Washington Post) “Global warming” became “climate change” instantly. Now, human behavior isn’t just causing warming across the sphere but is causing the weather to change as well. The terminology adjustment was too subtle, too quickly responsive to the UN report. It all seems a bit phony, a political magnification for the purpose of reinforcing federal control of industry, the economy, and the environment. One argument emerging to account for the lack of surface heating

this past fifteen years is the oceans are acting like a “heat sink” to absorb more of the warmth. Really? How does that work? Did the oceans make a decision to do so? I am asking because why didn’t they always do that? I suspect hardcore environmentalists cooked that one up knowing most people can’t refute it, and that many will believe anything they are told as long as it sounds good. Said Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, “There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominate cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years.” Moore, an ecologist, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gasses are heating up the planet. Moore left Greenpeace when he felt the organization had started becoming more political than environmental. “I had to leave as Greenpeace took a sharp turn to the political left, and began to adopt policies that I could not accept from my scientific perspective,” stated Moore. If a man like Moore with his long history as an environmental activist is skeptical of this stance taken toward the environment, then shouldn’t we be as well? “Climate change” reeks of politics and the Left’s hoggish need to control all. One intended consequence is jobs that keep us independent and competitive are being destroyed. The coal industry and the pipeline are examples. One can be skeptical of environmental politicking and still demand a clean planet. That’s all I’m saying. Larry W. Anderson prefers a limited, honest government of the people.

Waste Continued from Page 1 “We bid this out annually, and this is the third straight year we’ve worked with Tradebe.” The amount of hazardous household waste collected exceeded the capacity of the Tradebe collection truck, so the remainder of the material will have to be picked up later this week. Government funding is no longer available for tire recycling, so Nucor-LMP stepped up and provided 18-wheelers, along with a crew of 19 volunteers to load the waste tires into the semitrailers. The tires — three truckloads worth — were taken to EnTire Recycling in Rock Port. It is estimated that the haul totaled approximately 40 tons of used tires, which will be recycled and therefore diverted from landfills and dumps. “We are grateful that Nucor-LMP stepped up and did this so we could once again include tires in our collection event,” Laderoute said. “I also want to thank the Nodaway County commissioners, who provided us with the site and their labor, and the county maintenance yard staff and the Regional Council staff for all of the time and effort contributed to make the collections run smoothly.”


Tire collection

Three 18-wheeler loads of tires were collected at Saturday’s waste collection event. The tires were delivered to EnTire Recycling in Rock Port. Nucor-LMP provided the trucks, covered transportation costs and provided volunteers to load the semitrailers.

CAPITOL NEWS Bill would end gay marriage ban JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri House Democrat has introduced legislation that would repeal the state’s ban on gay marriage. Mike Colona, a House member from St. Louis who is gay, filed a proposed constitutional amendment this week that would go before voters in November. Colona was joined by 30 of his Democratic colleagues as cosponsors. Missouri in 2004 became the first state to enact a constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage after the Massachusetts high court permitted gay marriage there. The Missouri measure passed with 70 percent of the vote. With only seven weeks left in the legislative session, Colona’s proposal is unlikely to gain traction. And Missouri Republicans, who control both legislative chambers, remain opposed to overturning the state’s ban.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri Senate has passed a bill to require local elections authorities to phase out the use of some electronic voting machines. Under the measure, Missouri voters could only use an electronic ballot machine that produces a paper trail of marked votes. The legislation allows other types of electronic voting machines currently in use to remain at polling places. But it prohibits local election authorities from replacing those machines because of a malfunction or wear and tear. The bill, passed with a 22-11 vote on Thursday, also declares the paper ballot as the official ballot of Missouri elections. It is sponsored by Republican Sen. Brian Nieves, of Washington, and now heads to the House.

Young inventors show their stuff

Above left: Third-grader Gabe Baldwin shows off his invention, the “P.E.T.” pet exerciser. Above right: Thirdgrade students Ella Sheil and Colby Bowles sit beside their inventions while listening to a presentation. Right: Drew Burns stands beside his invention, the “Float-r-izer 3000.”

Kids dream up gadgets galore By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Students in Erica Buck’s third-grade class at St. Gregory’s School took part in the second annual Invention Convention last week. The activity was the culmination of an assignment made earlier this month that

asked the children to put on their thinking caps and stretch their creativity. “Each student had to identify a problem in their lives and then come up with an invention idea that solves that problem,” Buck said. “It’s interesting to see what they identify as a problem and their creative solutions.”

Inventors included: Max Faris with “Bye, Bye PeePee,” Alissa Martin with “Super Slippers 2000,” Rylee Vierthaler with “The Two-Strapped Backpack,” Drew Burns with “Float-rizer 2000” and Halle Buck with “The Silly Machine.” Other gadgeteers were Gabe Baldwin with “The

P.E.T.,” Karina Salazar with “The Napkin Shirt,” Mason Renshaw with “T.C.T.-The Cleaning Thingymajigy,” Kennedy Kurz with “The Kickback,” Adam Patton with “The Feetsponger,” Madi Vaught with “Babysitter Belt 2014,” Colby Bowles with “The Toilet Flipper” and Ella Sheil with

“Dog…E Carrier.” While some of the ideas looked like they might still need a little work, others didn’t appear to be all that far from patent worthy. Burns’ Float-r-izer consisted of an air-filled plastic ring surrounding a small, flat surface capable of keeping potato chips or a candy bar

high and dry for those craving munchies while relaxing in the swimming pool. “Never get out of the pool for a snack again,” proclaimed the tagline lettered onto Burns’ display. “We really want to thank the parents for their support and assistance with this project,” Buck said.

Students ‘pay it forward’


Students in the “pay it forward” program include, front row from left, Mackenzie Spire, Caroline Morley and Kamryn Gastler; back row, Sean Ottman, Mason Walk, Brenden Ware, Chase Newberry and Justin Martin.

MARYVILLE, Mo. — Seventh-graders at St. Gregory’s School in Maryville are once again partnering with the Maryville Optimist Club to “pay it forward.” As it has in the past, the club gave each of the class’ students $5 along with a challenge to develop a plan that would make those dollars grow before being donated to a charitable or civic cause of their choice. Optimist Club member Mary Noel-Owens talked to the class about the project and presented their teacher, Amy Gastler,

with the $45 in seed money. The classes also watched a video of a television show during which celebrity host Oprah Winfrey’s gave members of her audience $1,000 gift cards from US Bank to use in helping others. Gastler’s students are currently in the process of discussing how they will invest their money in order to reap the “profits” of investing in a good cause. The classroom exercise is based on “Pay it Forward,” a book written by Catherine Ryan

Team efforts lift Cats to sweeps By JASON LAWRENCE Sports editor


Walk-off winner

Northwest junior first baseman Stephanie Mark hit a pair of walk-off homeruns over the weekend, helping Northwest sweep both Pittsburg State and Missouri Southern. Mark hit a solo homer to beat Pitt. State 8-7 in game two on Friday and followed it up with a three-run dinger in game two Saturday, which the Bearcats won 3-0 in eight innings.

Back-to-back days at Bearcat Field ended the same way for the Northwest softball team — with walk-off homeruns by junior first baseman Stephanie Mark, but more importantly, with sweeps over MIAA foes Pittsburg State and Missouri Southern. “It was four big wins, especially considering at Washburn we should have taken one game, at Central Missouri we could have taken a game, even Emporia we could have taken a game and we got swept,” head coach Ryan Anderson said. It’s good to get back some games and take some steps up the standings.” With the wins, Northwest moves to 7-7 in conference play and is sitting at 14-16 overall heading into a pair of nonconference games this week. On Friday, Northwest got on top early in game one, scoring a run in the first inning as mark singled to bring freshman second baseman Torri Blythe around to score. In the second inning, Northwest exploded for eight runs as senior outfielder Jordan Ereth, Mark, freshman shortstop Chantel Adams (2), sophomore designated hitter Maddie Jones and junior catcher Taszia Roseberry (3) all drove in runs. Ereth and Adams each recorded a pair of hits for the Cats. Pitt. State scored three runs in the fourth and tacked on runs in the fifth and sixth innings , but it was too little, too late as Northwest claimed the 9-5 win in game one. Game two was a bit more back and forth. The Bearcats again jumped out on top as Ereth led off with a double and was driven home by Blythe, who then came around to score on a double by Adams. The Gorillas tied it up at 2-2 in the third inning before Jones put Northwest back on top in the bottom of the fourth with a solo homer to left field. Pittsburg State again had an answer, scoring three runs and taking a 5-3 lead in the fifth. In the bottom of the sixth, Northwest again reclaimed the See SOFTBALL, Page 9

Horns steal win against Mustangs By KEVIN BIRDSELL Staff writer

A new era in North Nodaway athletics began on Friday with the Mustangs playing their first ever baseball game. The inaugural matchup for the Mustangs was against the South Nodaway Longhorns. The game was close throughout, but South Nodaway used strong late inning play to pull away and win 10-3. With the temperature dropping throughout the game, both teams had to fight to stay loose and warm. “There’s a lot of downtime in baseball sometimes,” South Nodaway coach Aaron Murphy said. “Sometimes you’re standing around, so staying loose is key. (The cold) makes them tighten up, but we looked like we made some athletic plays that made us look loose.” The game was a pitchers duel for the first two innings, with neither team scoring a run. In the third inning, North Nodaway took a one run lead on a single from sophomore Ben Hart that drove home freshman Peyton Coleman for the first run in North Nodaway history. The third inning also saw the first runs scored from the Longhorns, who put up

four in the bottom of the inning. Sophomore Bryce Deen drove in two runs in the inning on a single as well as crossing the plate himself after a single from junior Garrett LaMaster. The pitchers dominated the fourth inning, neither giving up a run. For North Nodaway, senior Devin Brown took the mound in relief of sophomore Koby Reynolds, who pitched three innings, struck out five batters, walked three and gave up four runs and four hits. Both teams managed to put up a few runs on the board in the fifth inning. For North Nodaway, Hart drove in his second run of the game on a triple then crossed the plate as well, which cut the South Nodaway lead to 4-3 in the fifth. The Longhorns added two more runs in the bottom of the inning. Senior Dalton Murphy drove in LaMaster and junior Logan Murphy also scored a run, which gave the Longhorns a 6-3 lead after the fifth inning. Longhorn sophomore Ben Jermain shut out the Mustangs in the top of the sixth inning to hold the four run lead. In the bottom of the frame, South Nodaway scored four more runs to extend its lead to 10-3. Jermain, junior Jed Galbraith, See SOUTH NODAWAY, Page 8

Cats avoid series sweep

Throw him out


Northwest redshirt-freshman second baseman Garrett Fort throws out a base runner during a game earlier this season. Fort and the Bearcats lost the weekend series to Washburn 3-1.

TOPEKA, Kan. — The Northwest baseball team dropped its first three games against conference foe Washburn during its weekend series before bouncing back to take the final game on Sunday. Washburn scored two runs in the second and two runs in the fourth before closing out the bottom of the eighth with three runs to knock off the Bearcats 7-0 in game one on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, Northwest fell 7-5 in game one and 12-8 in game two. Northwest fell behind early in the first game of the double-header, giving up four runs in the first inning and two more in the third. In the fourth inning, senior Eric McGlauflin got the Bearcats on the board with his third homerun of the season, a solo shot to center field. Washburn added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth. In the top of the seventh, senior Jon Pomatto scored after reaching on an error as junior Paul Johnson was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Senior Ryan Abernathy drove in senior Alex Singleton to cut the lead to 7-3. The next batter, McGlauflin, doubled and drove in Johnson and senior Brandon Huske to bring the game within two, 7-5. But Washburn got the final out on a grounder to short. McGlauflin finished the day going 2-for3 with three RBI and one run scored. Northwest held an early 1-0 lead in the nightcap before Washburn scored nine runs in the first four innings. The Bearcats tried to keep up the pace, adding two runs in the third, one in the fourth and four in the fifth, but a three run sixth inning from the Ichabods put the game out of reach. Northwest took advantage of a wild pitch as Huske scored during McGlauflin’s first at bat. In the third, Ryan Abernathy hit his first homerun of the season, driving in redshirt-freshman Garrett Fort. In the

fourth, junior Blake Hardegree singled in redshirt-freshman James Holler, who led off with a double. Northwest scored four in the fifth inning started by a sacrifice fly from McGlauflin to score Fort. Freshman Austin Wulff singled to score Abernathy and Wulff scored on an error. Holler would score the final run, advancing on a wild pitch. McGlauflin went 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs scored. Pomatto was 3-for-3 with two runs scored. In the series finale on Sunday, senior Ryker Fox went 7.2 innings for Northwest, allowing just four runs while striking out two. Pomatto got the save, pitching a scoreless ninth inning. Northwest jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, scoring twice in the first and adding one in the second before Washburn crossed the plate for the first time in the fourth. The Bearcats responded with a three run sixth inning and added another in the seventh. Washburn scored three times in the eighth, but was unable to get any closer. Abernathy doubled in Pomatto in the first and Abernathy would score two batters later on a groundout by Wulff. In the third, Huske tripled, driving Johnson in after he began the inning by getting hit by a pitch. With two outs in the sixth, sophomore Derek Meyer singled to score Johnson and Holler. Meyer scored in the next at bat as freshman Zack Ferreira doubled down the left field line. In the seventh, McGlauflin grounded out, scoring Pomatto who reached on an error to start the inning. Northwest (16-13, 11-10 MIAA) returns home on Friday to take on Missouri Southern at 2 p.m. The four-game MIAA series with the Lions will also include a 1 p.m. Saturday doubleheader and a single game on Sunday at noon.

Men win 2, women fall twice MARYVILLE, Mo. — The Northwest women’s tennis team lost both of its matches over the weekend while the men picked up a pair of victories before losing to Division I nationally ranked Wichita State. On Friday, the men beat No. 47 Harding 5-4 while the women fell 5-1 to fall below .500 on the season. The men got victories at No. 3-6 singles as sophomore Alvaro Riveros, senior Lluis Altimires, freshman Julien Couronne and freshman Hicham Azzaoui all picked up victories in straight sets. The Bearcats picked up a doubles point as sophomore Sergio De Vilchez and Altimires defeated Mathaus Spiering and Yann LeMat, 8-2. On the women’s side, Northwest picked up a point at No. 3 doubles as freshman Aniek Kolen and junior Stephanie Mannix defeated Lauren Doversola and Arielle Butler, 9-8 (8-6). On Saturday, the men swept Emporia State 9-0 to move to 2-0 in conference play,

while the women suffered their second straight setback to fall to 8-10 on the year. The men won all six singles matches in straight sets. On the women’s side, Northwest got wins from freshmen Marianne Hull and Mara Veasey at No. 2 doubles and Kolen and Mannix won at No. 3 doubles. Kolen won at No. 3 singles, 6-4, 6-1, while Mannix picked up a victory at No. 4 singles, 6-3, 6-1, but it wasn’t enough as Northwest fell 5-4. The men’s tennis team fell to the Wichita State Shockers, 4-0, on Sunday afternoon. Northwest is now 10-2 on the season. Wichita State, which was ranked No. 72 this week in the Division I poll, is now 14-7. The match was called after Wichita State captured the first four singles matches. Both teams’ next match will be on Wednesday in an MIAA contest against Washburn in Topeka, Kan. The match scheduled against William Jewell on Monday has been postponed to a later date.

Central wins national title EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Central Missouri defeated West Liberty 84-77 to win the second men’s basketball national championship in the school’s Division II history on Saturday afternoon at the Ford Center. After seeing no one lead by more five for much of the half UCM closed out the game on a 6-2 run to ice the game. Dillon Deck led the way with a doubledouble scoring 16 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. Daylen Robinson scored a game-high 21 points and was named Tournament MVP. The Mules went 30-5 on the season winning their last five straight after sharing the MIAA regular season title with Northwest. The Bearcats were knocked out of the NCAA Tournament by Central Missouri in the Sweet 16 as senior guard DeShaun Coo-

per’s 40-foot shot at the buzzer missed, allowing Central Missouri to move on with a 60-59 win. The two teams split the regular-season series, with Northwest winning 80-68 in Maryville and UCM prevailing 76-64 in Warrensburg on the last day of the regular season to force a tie at the top of the MIAA. With the Mules’ title, the MIAA becomes the first conference in Division II to have teams win the football and men’s basketball national championships during the same school year after Northwest won the football title in December. The MIAA was the most recent conference to have teams win the title in football and basketball. In 2009 Northwest won the football championship and the Emporia State women’s basketball team also won the national title.

Cooper helps lead West to NABC all-star game victory EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Northwest senior guard DeShaun Cooper scored six points and had three assists to help the West to a 121-109 victory over the East on Friday night in the National Association of Basketball Coaches Reese’s Division II all-star game at the Ford Center. Cooper is also the first Bearcat to be named an All-American by NABC and was named the MIAA Player of the Year as well as All-Central District by NABA and All-

District by CoSIDA/Daktronics. Missouri Southern senior guard Marquis Addison, a first team All-MIAA pick also played for the West, scoring 15 points. The West, which now leads the series 6-3, fell behind 11-0 in the opening minutes before rallying for a 46-30 advantage. The lead was 59-52 at the intermission. Mark McLaughlin of Central Washington and Kenny Williams of San Angelo State scored 20 points apiece to lead the West.

Royals make series of moves ahead of season-opener KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Royals placed right-handers Louis Coleman and Luke Hochevar on the disabled list as part of a series of moves that set their roster for Monday’s season opener in Detroit. The Royals also returned infielder Jason Donald to minor league camp, which means second baseman Omar Infante appears ready to start the season, and released catcher Ramon Hernandez from his minor league contract following Saturday’s exhi-

bition game in Detroit. Earlier on Sunday, the Royals sold the rights to left-hander Everett Teaford to the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization when it became clear he was not going to make the team. The moves leave Kansas City with 39 players on its 40-man roster, and that the club will open the season with 11 pitchers on the 25-man roster rather than the 12 that was anticipated.

Monumental pitch


North Nodaway sophomore Koby Reynolds throws a pitch during the Mustangs’ first-ever baseball game on Friday. Reynolds pitched three innings with five strikeouts and gave up four runs in the Mustangs’ 10-3 loss to South Nodaway.

South Nodaway grabs 2nd win Continued from Page 7 LaMaster and Dalton Murphy all scored in the inning. Deen, Dalton Murphy and Logan Murphy picked up RBIs in the inning, as well. LaMaster came on in the top of the seventh inning in relief of Jermain to close out the game for the Longhorns. After giving up a hit and two walks, Murphy came out to have a talk with him. The same thing happened in the Longhorns opening game against North Platte. “It was deja vu,” Murphy said. “He knew what he had to change. He shortened his stride again and was able to get in the zone. I think he has a lot of enthusiasm getting in there and can be a bit too amped up. It takes him a few pitches to get him into the zone.” The talk did the trick, as LaMaster struck out the next three batters to close out the game. “We had some hiccups in our field a little bit,” Murphy said. “But we made some very good defensive plays to get us out of some jams again. Big defensive plays that kid of stopped their momentum. Ben (Jermain) pitched a wonderful game, he was in control throughout …. He pithed a gem.” The Longhorns got their second win of the season, improving to 2-0, with the win. The Mustangs dropped to 0-1 in their first

ever game. “I feel like the mistakes we made were fixable things,” North Nodaway coach Andrew Webster said. “The kids played hard and it looks like we had fun. A lot of our guys are real young, so we have a lot to build on.” Jermain pitched six innings for the Longhorns, giving up three runs and eight hits while striking out five batters. At the plate, Deen went 2-for-4, drove in three runs, stole four bases and scored a run. LaMaster was 2-for-2 with an RBI, four stolen bases and three runs. Hart was 2-for-3 at the dish for the Mustangs. He also had two RBIs and a run scored. Reynolds was 2-for-2 with a run scored. “I thought we hit pretty well,” Webster said. “We made good contact, but we just have to work on little stuff. Fundamentals are something we need to focus on.” As a team, the Longhorns stole 15 bases, 11 of which came from Deen (4), LaMaster (4) and Jermain (3). North Nodaway will play its next game at home against conference opponent Tarkio at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Longhorns will travel to Ravenwood to take on the Northeast Nodaway Bluejays on Tuesday with the first pitch scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

Softball climbs MIAA standings with sweeps over Pitt, Southern Continued from Page 7 lead via the longball as Roseberry plated Adams, Uthe and Jones with a grand slam to left field. “That was huge,” Anderson said. “We were down two runs and Taszia’s grand slam puts us up two and really put the momentum into the next inning.” Once again, Pitt. State tied it in the seventh on a homerun before the first of Mark’s heroic homers gave Northwest the walk-off 8-7 win and a series sweep. “You don’t want to say hit the homerun, but those were big for us,” Anderson said. “They definitely helped.” Blythe, Adams and Jones all recorded two hits in the game. The second day of the homestand followed a similar pattern,

only Northwest’s pitching and defense turned it up a notch on Saturday, shutting Missouri Southern out 10-0 and 3-0 to sweep that series as well. “It’s huge because we needed to sweep these teams to get back up (in the conference),” Mark said. “We’re pitching really well, we’re starting to hit the ball really hard, we’re seeing pitches a lot better and making plays in the outfield. It’s a complete group effort. We’re playing great as a team right now.” Northwest scored in every inning of the first contest, racking up 11 hits. The Bearcats scored twice in the first inning, three times in the second, twice more in the third and plated three runs in the fourth to end the contest after five innings as junior pitcher Abbie Vitosh al-

lowed just two hits while striking out four in five innings of work. “When you do have a game like that, that’s what I’m always afraid of. You kind of step back and think, ‘OK, these hits are going to come easy now,’ but you’ve still got to work for them and swing the bat,” Anderson said. Game two was much more of a pitchers duel as the two teams combined for a total of four hits. Southern picked up its only hit off of sophomore pitcher Sarah Baldwin in the third inning. Northwest got it’s first hit in the bottom of the fourth when Mark doubled to left field. Neither led to any runs, though. “I don’t want to take away anything from their pitcher, she gave up three hits and two of them were

the last two hitters we had,” Anderson said. “She threw very well, so it was a well-pitched game that second game.” It took extra innings and another clutch homerun from Mark to record the sweep. In the bottom of the eighth, freshman outfielder Cassidy Lee walked and Blythe reached on a bunt single before Mark launched the game winner over the right field wall. “I’m just trying to hit the ball hard,” Mark said. “I’ve got Chantel behind me, I’ve got Uthe behind me, two solid batters, so I don’t feel like the pressure’s all on me. I can just go up there and swing. It’s just focus and try to hit the ball as hard as I can and hopefully move (the runners).” Baldwin struck out eight and

walked none to pick up her seventh win of the season. Mark now has team highs in both homers (7) and runs batted in (31). Northwest is back in action Tuesday, facing Truman State in a two-game series on Tuesday. “They’re good. Their pitchers are good. They jumped conferences this year and they’re playing well,” Anderson said. “They’re going to be a big test, especially on the road.” Mark said the Bearcats are poised to break out now that they’re starting to get a little momentum. “I think we’re going to be a great team here,” she said. “I think we’re going to bust out, come back and give our conference a run.”

BRIDGE If you see the road, steer your side by Phillip Adler





ASTRO-GRAPH MONDAY, MARCH 31, 2014 by Bernice Bede Osol






Don’t hesitate; take advantage of any offers of help you receive. Have a negotiation strategy in place. Stay organized and learn to delegate some of the less important details. It’s time to take control of your own destiny. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Use your energy wisely. Impress your employer with your abilities and willingness to tackle anything. Your efforts will be noticed and rewarded. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Stick to what you know and do best. Don’t rely on colleagues to finish what you start. You will end up gaining nothing and having to redo the work yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Change is in the air. Now is the ideal time to focus on your living space. Spruce up your home or look into a property investment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Get out and mingle. Sign up for a new activity or take advantage of arts and recreation facilities close to home. You are likely to meet someone who shares your interests. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your optimism could lead to trouble. Dreams are good to have, but deal with practical matters first. Focus on your career and take a realistic look at your financial situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your artistic abilities will be on display today. The children in your life will be

delighted to share a hobby or craft with you, and you can enjoy things through youthful eyes for a while. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You may feel as though you are stuck in a rut. Take time to catch up on your reading, or finish a creative project that you had put aside. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Keep your emotions in check. Although an interesting change may be taking place, you mustn’t act in haste. You would do well to consider the outcome before making a commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Your attention to detail will attract an influential person. Don’t take on too many assignments at once, or you may fall short. Call in favors to get the help you need. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be uncertain and lack direction. Be honest about the way you feel. Spending some time with the youngsters in your family will lighten your mood as well as prove informative. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Strive to do your best, and don’t allow criticism to upset you. Be confident in your judgment -- you will be able to make wise choices and good decisions. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t hesitate to speak your mind. Accept an invitation that allows you to meet new people and broaden your outlook and interests. A romantic connection will enhance your life.

Mario Andretti said, “If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough.” That might be true on the racetrack, but at the bridge table, if you see how to defeat declarer, take control and make the necessary defense clear to partner. In this deal, East has a chance to take the wheel and steer his partner down the right road. South is in three spades. West leads the heart king. What ought to happen? That South hand is definitely worth a one-spade bid, not a preemptive opening. If in doubt, apply the Rule of Twenty. Add your highcard points to the number of cards in your two longest suits. If the total is 20 or more, open one; if it is fewer than 20, pre-empt. North should settle for three spades; One of those minor-suit queens rates to be worthless. Losing Trick Count fans would be tempted to bid four spades, but let’s assume South passes. Afterward, East will wish he had made a takeout double, since four hearts is laydown. South has nine winners via six spades and three diamonds, so the defenders must take the first five tricks to defeat the contract. East should hope for two hearts and three clubs. But it is no good discouraging a heart continuation at trick one, because West is as likely to shift to a diamond as to a club. Instead, East should overtake the heart king with his ace, cash the club king, and return a heart to West’s queen. Then West will lead a club to defeat the contract. One final point: Do not use the Rule of Twenty if you are trying to decide whether to open one of a suit or to pass.

Mozingo attracts Graceland event By STEVE HARTMAN Staff writer

Mozingo Lake Recreation Park Golf Course played host to a college golf tournament over the weekend. That’s not unusual in itself, but what made this event unique was the host — Graceland University, which is located in Lamoni, a small town in south-central Iowa. Why did the school choose a course for its annual Graceland Spring Invitational that is 70 miles away from its main campus? According to Graceland University golf coach Kevin Brunner, the reasons are simple. “First of all, our local course at Lamoni is only a nine-hole course, so it won’t accommodate the number of teams and golfers we would like to in-

vite,” Brunner said. “Plus, Maryville is actually more centrally located when you look at where the teams are traveling from. “Add to that this great facility at Mozingo, and the decision to come here wasn’t that difficult. I was familiar with the course, as our team had played here during tournaments hosted by Northwest (Missouri State University), and knew what a great facility Maryville has here.” Mozingo head golf professional Kyle Easter said Graceland initiated the contact with regard to reserving the course for its tournament, and that the city-owned park was more than happy to accommodate the request. “There are 15 schools represented at this tournament,” Easter said. “There

are 144 golfers, plus coaches, school officials, parents and fans attending this tournament. “That’s over 200 people coming to Maryville Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and they’re renting rooms, eating at Maryville restaurants and shopping in Maryville. This event not only is great for Mozingo, it’s great for Maryville.” Brunner said the 18-hole layout at Mozingo works well, as each hole has two groups of four playing on it, which perfectly accommodates 144 golfers. “The course is completely full,” Brunner said. “Two foursomes per hole works well, moves well, and keeps the golfers from having long delays in play.” Graceland not only hopes to continue using Mozingo as the home course for its

Ideal spring conditions

A men’s foursome tees off on the tenth hole of the Mozingo Lake Recreation Park Golf Course during round two of the Graceland Spring Invitational Saturday afternoon. Mozingo head golf professional Kyle Easter said 144 golfers from 15 schools took part in the event.

invitational, it also plans to return when it’s time to host Heart of America Athletic conference golf events. “Obviously we want to continue to play our invitational tournament here,” Brunner said. “We also would like to use Mozingo when it’s our turn to host the conference tournaments.” “This is a great example of the type of event we want to attract to our

course,” Easter said. “We are expanding our marketing efforts into the Kansas City and Omaha areas with the idea of attracting more of these types of events.” Besides the host school, other teams playing in the tournament included William Penn University, Oskoloosa, Iowa; Ashford University, Clinton, Iowa; Ottawa University, Ottawa, Kan.; Baker University, Baldwin City, Kan.; A.I.B.,

Des Moines, Iowa; Central College, Pella, Iowa; Peru State College, Peru, Neb.; Central Methodist University, Fayette; Des Moines Area Community College, Des Moines, Iowa; Avila University, Kansas City; Culver-Stockton College, Canton; Missouri Valley College, Marshall; Southwestern Community College, Creston, Iowa; and Waldorf College, Forest City, Iowa.
