CHS play ‘The Boys Next Door’ premiers tonight Creston High School Drama Department will present their production of “The Boys Next Door” tonight and Sunday at CHS auditorium. The play features four men with various mental disabilities who live in a group home. The play — set in the Boston area — provides a humorous commentary of the men’s lives. “There is no major conflict in this play,” said Rachel Foth, director of this play. “It’s just a fun, entertaining play that provides excellent lessons throughout and at times can be heart-touching.” The four men are Barry, Norman, Arnold and Lucien. Barry is played by CHS student Brandon Phipps. Barry is a 28-year-old man Foth with schizophrenia who believes he’s a pro golfer. He gets highly agitated over small things. Norman is played by Ben Mullin. Norman is a middle-aged man with mental disabilities who works at a doughnut shop. He has a girlfriend Sheila and is very proud of a large ring of keys in his possession. Arnold is played by Maxx Walters. Arnold is a man with a mild mental disability who works at a movie theater as a janitor. He tends to be obsessive compulsive. Lucien is played by Evan Nielsen. Lucien faces extremely debilitating mental disorders. Despite the fact that he cannot read, Lucien insists on checking out armloads of books from the library. Other main characters are Jack — played by Jeremy Stoll — a social worker for the men, and Shelia (ReaAnne Hopkins) — who plays Norman’s love interest. Show times are 7 p.m. tonight and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $5 at the door. “Come out and support the students,” Foth said. “They’ve been working hard. It will be an entertaining show.”



Only corn stalks remain in a snowy field north of Afton. By adding cover crops to no-till practices, farmers can take another step toward slowing down soil erosion. Other benefits include weed suppression and improved soil health.

First-time users wait to see what benefits spring up with cover crops ■

By JAKE WADDINGHAM CNA associate editor


ith the ground still frozen and the temperature barely reaching double digits for the past week, preparation for the 2014 spring growing season is still a distant thought. But waiting dormant under the snow cover is a wide variety of winter-hardy cover crops that farmers hope will aid their cash crop yields this fall. In 2013, the federal government provided funds to support a cost-share program for farmers who wanted to experiment with cover crops for the first time. It paid a flat rate of $25 an acre and could be applied to 160 acres. “It was very popular,” said Taylor County Soil and Water Conservation Spokesman Tyler Folkerts. “There was close to $3 million in that pot and all of it was used up in a matter of two weeks.”

Most of the seeds were planted July through September by an aerial seeding method or by drilling into the soil. Some of those seeds — cereal rye, spring peas, hairy vetch and legumes — will be the first sprout this spring.

This field shows a variety of mixes including, from left, radish and rye; barley, spring pea and turnip mix; and forage oat, turnip, radish and spring pea.

Expected benefits As the cover crops start to grow, farmers are hopeful it will act as a weed suppressant by blocking sunlight and acting as a mulch across the field. “Once the cover crop is established in the fall and comes back in the spring, it can compete against the weeds and keep them from coming in,” Folkerts said. Another benefit cover crops are expected to provide this spring is additional protection from soil erosion. On the surface it will reduce raindrop impact as well as increase water infiltration through the network of roots beneath the soil. According to United States Department of Agriculture, studies indicate that 80 percent of nutrient losses occur during the winter and spring transition. Cover crops add organic matter to the soil and take up residual nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus. “When the rain comes in the

A pollinator mix of lentils, alsike clover, mustard, safflower, sunflower, phacelia and buckwheat was applied to this field in July.

Cereal rye, radish and turnip seeds were flown onto this corn field in September.

Deaths Wade Tull Plano, Texas

Wade M. Tull, 98, of Plano, Texas, died Jan. 21, 2014, at The Legacy at Willow Bend. A memorial service was held Monday, Feb. 17, at First United Methodist Church, Benton, Ark. Burial of ashes was in McPherson Cemetery, Sardis, Ark. Memorials may be directed to the church or charity of the donor’s choice. Wade M. Tull, son of Hunter and Rosa Bailey Mashburn Tull, was born Jan. 25, 1915, in Sardis, Ark. On June 16, 1941, Wade married Oneida Sigsby of Rector and Bauxite, Ark., at Benton Methodist Church. In 1944, they made their home in Crossett, Ark. Wade ran the shoe department at Burr Department Store and then owned Tull’s Shoe Center there for many years. The Tulls also lived in

Texarkana and at Parkway Village, Little Rock. Wade is survived by his children, the Rev. Janna Tull Steed of Creston, the Rev. Dr. Justin Tull (wife Janette) of Carrollton, Texas, and Joel Tull of Greensboro, N.C.; grandchildren, Martin Tull (wife Donna) of White Salmon, Wash., and Alison Cruden (husband Clay) of Portland, Ore.; greatgrandsons, Owen and Fisher Cruden; sisters-in-law, Lyndall (husband Max) Hardin of Jonesboro, Ark., Janelle Viertel of Boonville, Mo., and Glenna Bookout of Rector, Ark., as well as several generations descended from his and his wife’s siblings. Wade was preceded in death by his parents, wife in 2003, brother-in-law Bert E. Sigsby; and brothers and sisters, Paul Mashburn, Euin Tull, Lonnie Tull, Lora Tull Richardson, Wesley Tull, Ethel Tull Green, Wilson Tull and Raymond Tull.

spring, cover crops stop the nutrients from being leeched out,” Folkerts said. By taking in all that moisture, cover crops may help farmers get into the field faster if it turns out to be a soggy spring. Termination Before planting corn or soybeans, the cover crop is terminated. For most cover crop rotations, it is not ideal to let it go to seed. “Most people will spray with a herbicide, using applications they already use to get ready for the planting season,” Folkerts said. The cover crop is typically killed two weeks prior to planting, but farmers should check if their USDA program has any specific kill methods or time frames. Some crops can be terminated organically by mowing or crimping once it reaches a reproductive growth stage. Ongoing program While it has not been officially announced, Folkerts and others are hopeful there will be federal dollars available again this year for

more cover crop cost-share programs. Farmers do have the option to continue the program without any aid, but should be weary of the cost compared to the expected benefits. “You should try to keep your cost at no more than $35 to $40 an acre,” Folkerts said. “It varies if the seeds are flown on or if you drill them in yourself. Seeding costs were about $20 to $30 an acre. Different mixes cost a little more.” Folkerts said he is hopeful that farmers who were not happy with their stand of cover crops in the fall or see better results during harvest still stick with the program. “Timing is critical,” Folkerts said. “For example, if you have it flown on before a rain, farmers had awesome stands. It is so dependent on timing and available moisture.” Contributed photo Cover crops also add revenue possibilities to several A mix of cereal rye, radish and turnips sprout up between corn rows before the fall harvest.

Legalization of gun suppressors hits bulls-eye in Iowa House DES MOINES (MCT) — A bill to protect Iowans’ liberties and their hearing sailed through the Iowa House Thursday on an 83-16 vote, but is likely to ■ The bill get sunk in cleared the the Demo- Iowa House cratic-con- 83-16, but trolled Sen- is likely to get stuck ate. in the H o u s e DemocraticFile 2381 controlled would al- Senate low Iowans to buy suppressors, or silencers, for their guns. That’s prohibited now by state law, according to floor manager Rep. Matt Windschitl, R-Missouri Valley, who called the bill a “prime opportunity to expand the freedom and liberty Iowans deserve.” Protecting their hearing from what one gun rights lobbyist called the “danger of instant and irreparable hearing damage” would be a “completely legit argument,” Windschitl added. However, shooters could

wear earplugs or headphones to protect their ears, Rep. Mary Mascher, D-Iowa City, said. Silencers would muffle the noise of gunfire and “provide a new degree of intimacy for a mass murderer.” The same protection suppressors provide target shooters would work to the “advantage of the armed psychopath,” she said. Windschitl argued he could find no empirical evidence that there has been an increase in crime in the 39 states that already allow the purchase and use of suppressors. Rep. Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, D-Ames, opposed the bill based on her litmus test for firearms legislation: “Will it create a safer environment in our schools, theaters, malls and general public?” In the end, the bill received broad bipartisan support. The 16 “no” votes came from urban Democrats, including some Cedar Rapids representatives where noise from a gun range has been an issue. A bill to would protect the

Cedar Rapids Police Department’s outdoor shooting range from noise complaints from neighbors sailed through the Iowa House 98-1 in 2013. Referring to that range, which was in a rural area, but now sits amid development, House Speaker Kraig Paulsen, R-Hiawatha, said it’s his guess neighbors of the range would appreciate if shooters use suppressors. However, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Rob Hogg, D-Cedar Rapids, doubts he can get a consensus on the bill and said the Senate is too busy to consider new legislation in the middle of a session. Opponents also noted that the ban on suppressors was one of the first 10 bills Gov. Terry Branstad signed after becoming governor in 1983. —————— ©2014 The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) MCT Information Services

Working out the gyms Dear Readers: Many folks JOIN GYMS around the start of the year. What is it about that holiday weight gain? Here are a few quick hints for not only finding the right gym for you, but also for being a good gym customer: • When looking into joining a gym, ask for a free trial. Some gyms will let you have a week free, or at least try a class to see if you like it. • Ask if they have any discounts. We all know the standard senior and military discounts, but they may have more, which could save you money. • When working out, don’t take calls on your cellphone! If you need to keep it with you, put it on silent and call back later! Or step away to someplace where you can talk without bothering other people. • Be aware of what’s going on around you! If you see that people are waiting for a machine or weights, don’t be a hog, and try to keep your time limited. • If taking a group exercise, be on time. If you know you are going to have to leave early, tell the instructor, and find a spot close to the door so you can slip out

Horoscope Saturday, March 1, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel introspective today. That’s because today’s New Moon is taking place in the hidden part of your chart, which makes you want to examine your life in a thoughtful way. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Do you hang out with quality people? Your friends influence you because they affect your mind, and your mind makes the choices that affect the rest of your life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Today’s New Moon urges you to think about your relationship to authority. Do you immediately bristle or rebel? Actually, we all have to deal with authority figures — even The Donald. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) What further education or training will improve your job? Or perhaps enrich your life? Think about this. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today’s New Moon urges you to work to become debt-free. You are a big spender, but you also can save voraciously if you have a goal. (Oh yeah.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) The only New Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place today. That means this is your best chance to think how to improve your partnerships and closest friendships. Ideas? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) What can you do to improve your job? Can you get a different job? Can you improve the job you now have? What about improving the conditions or the appearance of where you work? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is the only New Moon all year that urges you to respect your creative talents. Children love to sing, dance and draw. But adults are fearful. Consider how you can express your creativity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) How can you improve your relationships with family members? And also, what can you do to improve your home life? This is a perfect day to think about this. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Are you a good communicator? Half the battle is actually listening to others — not just hearing them, but listening. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Today’s New Moon is your chance to get on top of your financial scene. After all, infor-

mation is power. Do you know exactly what you earn and what you own? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Take a realistic look in the mirror, and ask yourself what you can do to improve your appearance. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. YOU BORN TODAY You are creative. Many of you learn to perfect a particular technique. You are aware of your appear-

ance and make an effort to look well put together. Plus you are charming, diplomatic and gracious, and you know how to keep things lighthearted and pleasant — valuable skills to have!

Wake up to why you might be tired all the time (BPT) — With busy schedules, it’s inevitable to feel sleepy once in a while. But habitually falling asleep during the day while watching TV, reading a book, or in the middle of having a conversation could be a sign of a serious sleep disorder known as narcolepsy. An underdiagnosed medical condition Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder that involves the brain’s inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally. It affects an estimated one in 2,000 people in the United States, with symptoms typically appearing in early adulthood. Yet it is estimated that 50 percent or more patients with narcolepsy have not been diagnosed. According to a recent survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Jazz Pharmaceuticals, awareness of narcolepsy is low. One thousand members of the general public and 400 practicing physicians were surveyed about their knowledge of narcolepsy and its symptoms.

Only 7 percent of members of the general public who had heard of the condition reported being “very” or “extremely” knowledgeable about it relative to other chronic diseases. That number only increased to 24 percent among primary care physicians. The majority of people surveyed could not identify all five major symptoms of narcolepsy. In fact, studies have shown it may take 10 years or more for people with narcolepsy to receive a correct diagnosis. “The symptoms of narcolepsy are not well-recognized, which can lead to misdiagnosis,” says Dr. Aatif M. Husain, professor of neurology at Duke University Medical Center.“By becoming aware of the symptoms of narcolepsy, individuals can have more informed conversations with their doctors, which may help lead to quicker diagnosis.” The symptoms of narcolepsy: more than daytime sleepiness

A recent study, in which researchers evaluated health care data of more than 9,000 narcolepsy patients compared to 46,000 controls, shows that people with narcolepsy are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and other conditions including sleep apnea, stroke and heart failure compared to the general population. There are five major symptoms of narcolepsy. Talk to a doctor if one or more sound familiar. • Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) - EDS, the primary symptom of narcolepsy, is characterized by the inability to stay awake and alert during the day resulting in unplanned lapses into sleep or drowsiness; EDS is present in all people with narcolepsy. • Cataplexy (muscle weakness with emotions) A sudden, brief loss of muscle strength triggered by strong emotions like happiness, laughter, surprise, or anger. • Sleep disruption - Fre-

quent periods of waking up during sleep. • Sleep paralysis - A brief inability to move or speak while falling asleep or waking up. • Hypnogogic hallucinations - Vivid, dream-like events that occur when falling asleep or waking up. These symptoms vary

from person to person and not all five symptoms must be present for a narcolepsy diagnosis. It is also important that family and friends understand these symptoms, as they may observe them and encourage their loved ones to seek medical advice sooner. Seek information from a

sleep specialist If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s important to talk to a doctor and visit to learn more about narcolepsy, find a sleep specialist and watch videos to hear from patients with narcolepsy talk about their condition.

a car traveling at 32 mph! And it spews ozone, sulfur, dioxides, carbon monoxide, particulate matter and more. Geez, wheeze! The benefits of cleaning up schoolyard air were pretty clear when Washington state retired smoke-spewing school buses or retrofitted them with natural gas; They saw a 30 percent drop in kids’ visits to the emergency room for asthma and bronchitis. Now educators and parents in some locales are realizing that it’s up to them to clear the polluted air from idling cars in their schoolyards, too! But more parents, administrators and kids need to tune in to turning off the idling engines. So now — as Monty Python says — for something completely different, your school can: —Create classroom science projects on exhaust pollution’s health hazards and have kids tally the number of idling cars and the length of time they idle. —Create a pledge letter for parents to sign promising to turn off their car after 10 seconds in line. GIVIN’ PROSTATE CANCER THE OLD “ONE TWO” Love him or hate him, the fact is, heavyweight champ Mike Tyson won his first 19 professional bouts with knockouts — 12 of them in the first round — by using the old “one-two” combination, a left jab followed by a right cross. That combination was clearly his most effective treatment. Today, docs are throwing a one-two combo at prostate cancer, and just as it did for the young Mike Tyson, it’s paying off big time. Up to now, if you were diag-

nosed with prostate cancer that hadn’t spread beyond the prostate gland, a radical prostatectomy — removal of the entire prostate and some surrounding tissue — has been the gold standard for treatment. In addition, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and even cryotherapy (freezing cancer cells with liquid nitrogen) have proved effective in individual cases. Unfortunately, using any single treatment increases the odds that the cancer will return. Now, an expanded followup to a 2009 study has confirmed that using a one-two combo of radiation therapy and hormone treatment is doubling the 10- and 15-year survival rate of men with locally advanced or high-risk local prostate cancer. The researchers also point out that this double treatment doesn’t cause side effects that are much more difficult to deal with than those associated with solo hormone treatment. So if you are diagnosed with locally invasive prostate cancer, talk to your doctors about this effective knock-out punch, and explore your options for radiation therapy (there are several types) combined with hormone therapy. *** Mehmet Oz, M.D. is host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” and Mike Roizen, M.D. is Chief Wellness Officer and Chair of Wellness Institute at Cleveland Clinic.

Wash this way The Greek goddess Aphrodite was broken-hearted when she heard Adonis had perished. Myth has it her tears fell to earth as red hearts, and strawberries were created! This oh-sogood-for-you fruit delivers a phytonutrient called anthocyanins that can help slash your risk of a broken heart. Ironic, no? Eating berries three times a week helps prevent heart attack! But you want to get berry benefits without risking a tummyache, diarrhea or worse. Berries, along with leafy greens, potatoes, tomatoes and sprouts, are the fresh produce most likely to trigger food-borne illness. That’s because they can harbor salmonella, norovirus, E. coli and other troublemakers if produce is exposed to contaminated water or mishandled during processing or shipping. Fruits and veggies also can pick up these bugs in your kitchen if you don’t store or cook them correctly, or if they come in contact with raw meat or seafood. So ... Wash your hands for 20 seconds before and after handling produce. Cut away discolored or soft spots and outside or wilted leaves. Skip the sprouts unless cooked. Wash produce in running water — no soap or disinfectant — even if you’re going to peel or cook it. Dry to further remove contaminants. Scrub firm produce like melons, potatoes or cucumbers with a vegetable brush. Dry well. Store all produce in the fridge at 40 F. Cooking produce to 160 F, for even a few seconds, will kill parasites, viruses and

HAPPY, HEALTHY HUMIDIFIERS South America’s Atacama Desert, a 41,000-squaremile expanse stretching from Peru to Chile, gets four inches of rain EVERY THOUSAND YEARS! And you thought your house got dry in the wintertime! To get rid of your indoor desert, use a room humidifier. If you don’t have one, get one; that’s doctors’ orders! Heating systems can drive relative humidity below 10 percent, and for optimal comfort and health, you want relative humidity at 30 percent to 50 percent. The added moisture from a humidifier can ease dry, itchy skin and irritated nasal passages, quiet down a snoring bedmate and help break up congestion. But if you don’t keep ultrasonic and cool-mist humidifiers clean, they become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold, and disperse microorganisms and minerals from their water into the air. So, make sure you keep your humidifier healthy so that you stay healthy, too. 1. Use humidifiers with removable tanks that can be emptied and cleaned. Empty standing water once a day. 2. Twice a week, wash the tank with a 3 percent solu-

tion of hydrogen peroxide, or a three-to-one mixture of distilled water and vinegar. Let sit for 30 minutes. Rinse several times with tap water. 3. Fill only with distilled water. Even if you use filtered water, the mist may contain minerals that get inhaled and trigger respiratory problems. 4. Avoid disinfectants that you leave in the water tank. Variations of some marketed in North American have proved dangerous for children to breathe. Stick with elbow grease. 5. Change filters regularly; never let them develop discoloration or mold.

And your weapon for self-defense? Your nose. A new set of studies demonstrates that you can sniff out the fat content in foods, whether you’re overweight or normal weight, male or female, young or old. Your all-too-neglected olfactory sense can be one more tool to help you avoid unhealthy foods and weight gain! So how can you cultivate your

fat-sniffing powers? —Try an at home fatsniffing test. Sniff the difference between a pat of butter, a tablespoon of canola oil, and a French fry. Notice the heaviness of the butter and the French fry smell? See how much lighter the canola oil is? —The dynamic duo of Healthy Aromas and Good Tastes are also packed with smells, strong and subtle. Check them out, too. Cilantro, cabbage, onions, broccoli, green peppers and mushrooms all have distinct and pleasing aromas. Now take what you’ve learned out into the world.

Ranked teams lost to 5 unranked teams on the same night for the second time this season on Thursday.

National Digest

Hawks fall BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Will Sheehey netted a career-best 30 points and Indiana took down No. 20 Iowa, 9386, in a Big Ten bout on Thursday from Assembly Hall. Stanford Robinson and Evan Gordon had 17 and 12 points, respectively, in reserve roles for Indiana (16-12, 6-9 Big Ten), while the four non-Sheehey starters combined for just 21 points on six made field goals. This was the lone meeting between the two teams this season. Roy Devyn Marble paced Iowa (19-9, 8-7) with 20 points, Aaron White scored 19 and Melsahn Basabe had 14 in the Hawkeyes’ third straight setback.

Razborbacks win LEXINGTON, Ky. — Arkansas didn’t need a spectacular dunk to beat No. 17 Kentucky in overtime this time around. Perfect free throw shooting worked just fine for the Razorbacks, a fundamental they executed much better than the Wildcats, with Coty Clarke and Kikko Hayder providing the final touches in the extra session. Clarke scored four of his seven points in OT from the foul line and Arkansas upset the Wildcats 71-67 on Thursday night to complete a season sweep. Six weeks after Michael Qualls beat the Wildcats with a lastsecond dunk in OT, Clarke lifted the Razorbacks this time with a 3-pointer and foul shooting, making two free throws with 36.7 seconds left for a 69-64 lead. Foul shots were the difference in the game, with Arkansas making all six attempts in overtime and going 16 for 16 overall. Kentucky was 12 of 22 from the line and just 6 of 14 in the second half. James Young’s 3-pointer brought Kentucky (21-7, 11-4 Southeastern Conference) within two, but Haydar made two more from the line with 17 seconds left for the final margin.


Wolverines bury Griswold in district final By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

STUART — It took Nodaway Valley head coach Darrell Burmeister just 32 seconds to call his first timeout here Thursday in the Class 1A District 13 final against Griswold. His team had just turned the ball over on its first possession. But after the timeout, Nodaway Valley seemed to get on track, building a 13-5 lead with 4:22 left in the first quarter. Griswold closed the half quarter on an 11-0 run, however, taking a 16-13 lead into the second quarter. The Wolverines put the game away in the second quarter, though. Nodaway Valley started the quarter on a 19-0 run, giving the Wolverines plenty of cushion in a 77-42 win. The win advances Nodaway Valley to Saturday’s substate final in Atlantic against East Mills, which was a 48-28 winner over Sidney. “We just had to get settled down a little bit,” Burmeister said. “Then we moved TJ (Bower) to the high post, and I thought that helped a little bit. It opened up some stuff. Then we got our fast break going and some steals. Jackson Lamb got hot.”

Nodaway Valley senior Mason Clarke goes up for a shot in the post during the first half of Nodaway Valley’s 77-42 win over Griswold in the Class 1A District 13 final on Thursday in Stuart. Clarke provided a spark off the bench for the Wolverines in the win.

the second quarter as he led all scorers with 27 points, 16 of which came in the first half. The Nodaway Valley sophomore knocked down a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to end the half. Bower, who finished with 18 points for the game, had 11 by the break. For the g a m e , Nodaway V a l l e y Bower shot 71 percent from the floor. “We shot the ball really

well again tonight — 23of-31 from the floor,” Burmeister said. “Pretty much a perfect night, except maybe that fourth quarter we put them in the bonus there at the end. I don’t think they shot very well, so I think our press wore them down as the night went along.” Griswold managed just four points in the second quarter, as the Wolverines pulled away with a 24-4 advantage in the frame. The Tigers turned the ball over eight times in the quarter. One area the Tigers were giving Nodaway Valley problems in the first half

was on the glass. Griswold hit the offensive glass hard in the first half, getting second chance opportunities multiple times. “That’s all we said at halftime was ‘rebound, rebound,’” Burmeister said. “We needed to get some more defensive rebounds and block out. Then on offensive rebounds, we needed to be stronger with the basketball, because they did a nice job ripping the ball loose if weren’t strong with the ball. “Basically, that was the only adjustment we made at halftime, was we needed to

do a better job of rebounding. We liked everything else that was going on at that time.” Nodaway Valley kept its intensity up in the second half in front of a raucous crowd that had its half of the West Central Valley gym full 30 minutes before the game tipped off. “Our fan base is unbelievable,” Burmeister said. “Half an hour before the game, it’s packed.

Mustangs fade after early challenge Unbeaten Lamoni advances with 58-38 victory By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer •

MOUNT AYR — Sam Rockhold had attempted no 3-point shots all season. Murray’s first two baskets in taking leads of 3-0 and 6-5 over undefeated Lamoni Thursday were 3-pointers Rockhold by Rockhold. Suddenly, the team ranked third in the state by Associated Press had a defensive dilemma on its hand. The Mustangs had unleashed a secret weapon, who ended the first half with three of the team’s five treys to keep Murray within three points at the break, 20-17. “Sam came in the gym for two hours shooting today,”

Murray coach Darin Wookey said. “He was sitting out there shooting threes. I’m thinking, that’s not part of the plan. He hit the first one tonight, so I’m thinking, OK, you got the green light.” “We were going to let their big guys (Rockhold and Pat Kilmer) take threes,” Lamoni coach Ryan Olson said. “Their guards had been playing well, and (Trey) McHenry had gone for 31 against us in one of the games.” At halftime, though, Olson decided to adjust and start contesting the 3-pointers more regularly in a man-to-man defense. Murray’s offense went stagnant, coupled with turnover problems, and Lamoni assumed control with a 14-5 third quarter that paved the way for a 58-38 district championship victory. Lamoni (24-0) advances to a substate game for the

first time under Olson Saturday at Indianola against Pleasantville. Tip-off is 7 p.m. Murray’s season ends at 17-7. Rockhold scored a team-high 13 points with 10 rebounds in his final game for the Mustangs. Other seniors are Kilmer and guard Andrew Rider, w h o Rider made two 3-pointers in scoring eight points. Olson said Murray’s shooting made it a much tougher battle than previous wins of 72-55, 78-43 and 65-45 in the matchup this season. “I didn’t want our season to end because we were sitting back in a zone and watching them shoot threes, so we came out with more

Streak ends ST. LOUIS — The longest winning streak in Saint Louis history ended Thursday night with a surprising loss at home to Duquesne. Micah Mason had 22 points and Jerry Jones added 19, leading Duquesne to a 71-64 victory. Saint Louis (25-3, 12-1 Atlantic 10) had won 19 straight since dropping a 70-65 decision on Dec. 1 to unbeaten Wichita State, now ranked No. 2 in the country. With a win, the Billikens could have clinched at least a tie for the Atlantic 10 regular-season title.

man-to-man,” Olson said. That put the Demons at more risk for foul trouble, and 6-7 center Jeremy Deemer (averaging 26 points and 16 rebounds) sat for a time in the third quarter with three fouls. But, Murray’s 3-point shooting binge was curbed in the process. Another factor for Murray was having McHenry at less than 100 percent with illness. He came into the game averaging 18.3 points for the Mustangs. “McHenry has been sick for seven days,” Wookey said. “He just doesn’t have any energy. He wanted to get through tonight, but he’s going to the doctor tomorrow.” Rockhold and Braydon Held had combined for five 3-pointers, which accounted for all of Murray’s offense in the first half except for one 2-point basket by Kilmer. In the meantime, Deemer had been limited to four points, gaining extra defensive attention from Rockhold and Kilmer. The game changed when Lamoni was clinging to a 2018 early in the third period.

Critical stage


Lamoni’s 6-foot-7 center Jeremy Deemer (50), who averages 26.8 points and 16.9 rebounds per game, gets extra defensive attention from Murray’s Pat Kilmer (left) and Sam Rockhold (right) during Thursday’s district championship game in Mount Ayr. Deemer had 18 points and 15 rebounds in the Demons’ 58-38 victory. In their final game for Murray, Rockhold contributed 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Kilmer finished with four points and seven rebounds.

Deemer scored inside and was fouled for a conventional 3-point play. Murray turned it over on successive possessions, leading to a driving basket by Tim Brunner and fast break layup by Caleb Heltenberg. That made it 27-18 with 3:30 to play in the third period. From that point, Murray got no closer than seven points. The dagger was a 3-pointer deep in the corner by Beau Bjorland early in the fourth quarter that stretched it to 17 points at 41-24. In a game that had featured patient possessions by Murray to generate good

looks at the basket, that was a huge margin. “We had to make a decision,” Wookey said. “Do we just sit back in that zone and be content with keeping it to 10 or 12 points? If we wanted to have any chance, if we want to try to win, we had to go man-to-man. I knew that could be trouble, because they have so much size.” The Demons pulled away to the final 20-point margin. Brunner and Deemer each finished with 18 points, and Deemer finished with 15 rebounds. Much of his secondhalf offense came from the offensive boards. “In the first half we did a really good job rebounding with them,” Wookey said. “In the third quarter, we turned the ball over about four or five times. We said we had to value the basketball tonight. Just too many turnovers in the third quarter. Now it’s a 10-point game.”

Good season After losing starters Austin Halls (all-stater), Cody Scroggie and Eddie Otto from last year’s substate team, Wookey said it was an accomplishment for this Mustang squad to make a fifth straight trip to a district championship game. “To be 17-7 after losing what we lost last year in quality athletes, that’s not bad,” Wookey said. “This group worked really hard to come together. We went on a great run after Christmas break.” All three seniors will be missed, but McHenry, Held and freshman guard Kenny Boles return to the lineup, and Wookey said 6-4 freshman post player Thane Simmons shows potential to Please see MUSTANGS, page 9A

WOLVERINES: led by junior Keegan Wederquist at 16.9 points per game. Logan Currin and Jacob Schafer both average 11 points per game. “East Mills, coach Schafer does a great job,” Burmeister said. “They’re well-coached. They’ve got a big guy inside and they’ve got a point guard and shooting guard. They just don’t hurt themselves, and they’re a really good defensive team.”

Substate After losing nine seniors, including four starters, from last year’s team that qualified for the state tournament, Burmeister said the mindset of this year’s team isn’t any different. “Our guys won the district tonight, but we were pretty calm in the locker room,” he said. “We’re not here to hand out medals tonight. If we win a district we try to stay focused. We’re one step away.” The win improved the Wolverines to 22-2 for the season. Next up for Nodaway Valley is 21-3 East Mills in the Substate 7 final in Atlantic. East Mills averages 61.1 points per game and shoots 43 percent from the field.

Central advances to title game PELLA — The Central College men’s basketball team led for more than 37 minutes of Thursday’s Iowa Conference semifinal and held on for an 86-84 win over Buena Vista inside a rowdy P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium, advancing to Saturday’s league championship game. The No. 1-seeded Dutch (19-7 overall) will play host to No. 6-seeded Luther College (17-10 overall) at 7 p.m. with an automatic berth into the 61-team NCAA Division III tournament field on the line. The Norse continued their Cinderella run

through the league tournament with an 87-83 upset of No. 2-seeded Dubuque on its home floor. It’s Central’s second trip to the league championship game since 1999, the tournament’s inaugural season. Central’s only other appearance came in 2010, its most recent championship season, in a 99-79 win over Buena Vista. Battling inside Kuyper Gym for the second time in two weeks, the Dutch and the No. 4-seeded Beavers (14-13 overall) exchanged timely 3-pointers and clutch plays, but Central held on for the two-point

victory. “I’m proud of our team,” coach Craig Douma said. “We showed a lot of resiliency tonight. We made a run, they made a run, but in the end we came up with some big offensive plays down the stretch. We beat a really good team a third time.” Senior forward Matt Greenfield had a gamehigh 28 points and 12 rebounds for the Dutch. Freshman Colby Taylor of Creston had 13 points, shooting 5-of-6 from the field — 3-of-4 from long distance — and an emphatic breakaway dunk.

Senior center Spencer Bakerink of Creston had four points and four rebounds in 17 minutes, shooting 2-of-3 from the field. Freshman guard Sam Markham of Atlantic played six minutes in the first half and scored five points on 2-of-2 shooting with a rebound and one assist. Buena Vista guard Cole Darrow of Glenwood left the game with an apparent ankle injury midway through the first half. Guard Nick Clark of Fort Dodge St. Edmond led the Beavers with 27 points.

Weigh your options regarding credit and debit cards • Need to build credit? Use a credit card if you are trying to establish a positive credit history. However, you must pay your bill in a timely fashion, and it helps to pay the entire balance each and every billing cycle to develop a good credit score. • Don’t want a large monthly bill? Debit cards withdraw money directly from your account at the moment the transaction occurs. Much like spending with cash, debit cards let users know when they have run out of cash, as cards will be denied if the transaction is not approved. If you do not want to pay a large bill at the end of the month, debit cards are the better choice. • Want to minimize fees? Debit cards do not charge

interest or minimum charge penalties. There’s no need to worry about being late for a payment and getting charged a fee, and causing your balance to skyrocket. Gas stations and other retailers that may charge more per purchase for using credit cards will treat debit cards like cash and offer the same discounts. • Enjoy perks?
