The Early Bird of Mount Ayr BY SARAH BROWN

CNA staff reporter sbrown@crestonnews.com

MOUNT AYR — As the old saying goes, “The early bird catches the worm.” In the case of Mount Ayr’s newest restaurant, the proverbial worm is a steaming cup of coffee and a choice of breakfast staples such as pancakes, biscuits and gravy and Belgian waffles or a grab-and-go treat like fresh baked lemon poppy seed muffins or apple turnovers. After the success of her first business, Jaime’s Coffee Mill and Deli, 118 W. Adams St., in Mount Ayr, owner Jaime Miller decided to pursue a second business venture. On March 17, Miller opened the doors to The Early

Bird, 115 N. Taylor St., in Mount Ayr. “There weren’t many places for breakfast in town,” Miller said. “I thought I’d help out.” The menu Miller said, with so many options for lunch in town, she wanted to focus on breakfast food. “We serve anything you could want for breakfast,” Miller said. The Early Bird menu offers eight morning combos served with coffee, for example biscuits and gravy, French toast or an omelet. Miller, who is also the cook, makes waffles that are almost as large as the plates and stacks of pancakes, that can be topped off with chocolate chips, strawberries, pecans or bananas. Miller, the main cook at The Early

Bird, said she “just enjoys making people’s tummy feel good.” The cafe also offers baked goods — sandwich and sweet bread loaves, cupcakes, cake, pies, pastries and cake pops — made from scratch by Jan Rusk of Mount Ayr. Many are recipes she learned cooking alongside her grandmother as a child. The team Miller and Rusk have been friends since high school. When a dialysis clinic that Rusk worked at closed, Miller was simultaneously looking for additional staff at the deli. “I just said I was looking for someone and she (Rusk) said, ‘what about

Nodaway Diner demolished to make way for Casey’s expansion

GREENFIELD — Vicki and Jerry Eshelman of Greenfield is going from a diner demolition to a new dining nook. The Eshelmans sold Greenfield’s Nodaway Diner, 502 SE Kent St., to Casey’s General Store. “We tore it completely down, so all is there is an empty lot now,” Vicki said. The Eshelmans bought a space in Atlantic, which they began remodeling in 2013. Farmers Walnut Street Diner, 319 Walnut St., Atlantic, will tentatively open in late summer. Sell The Eshelmans decided to sell Nodaway Diner after being approached by Casey’s General Stores February 2013. The company purchased Kum and Go stores in June 2011, and one of those stores was next door to Nodaway Diner. Casey’s General Stores plans to expand the store with the added space from the diner’s demolition. Farmers Walnut Street Diner still has work to be done to it. The Eshelmans couldn’t work on the restaurant until the deal with Casey’s was finished, and equipment is being kept in trailers until enough work is done to start moving it in to the Atlantic property. “We’ve got a lot of people that’s been asking us ever since we bought it in April of last year, when we are going to be open and this and that,” Vicki said. “People are excited for us to get up there.” Because the new restaurant is a 45-mile trek from Greenfield, the Eshelmans will use an apartment above the building to stay in part of the time, instead of traveling. “I think, down the road, it will be (the right decision),” Vicki said.

Next week, a new era will begin at KSIB Radio in Creston. Chad Rieck, general manager at the station, announced starting Monday KSIB listeners will no longer hear country music on their FM dial. “We’re moving to a news talk format,” Rieck said. Replacing country music will be the Dennis Miller show each weekday from 1 to 4 p.m. and Herman Cain show from 4 to 6 p.m. Other news talk programming being introduced includes the Clark Howard show, Jim Bohannon show, Overnight America and First Light. “We wanted “We wanted to try to try something something different. different,” Rieck We know we will said. “We know we will have some have some people people turn us off turn us off because because they want the music. But, we they want music. But, think we will also we think we will also pick up some people who didn’t like pick up some people the music, but like who didn’t like the talk radio.” music, but More local Rieck said this like talk new era will also radio.” include more local information each — Chad Rieck day. The morning KSIB General show from 6 to Manager 8:30 a.m. will continue and will not see many changes. The Trading Post will begin at 8:30 a.m. Then at 9 a.m., The Grapevine Show will be featured on Mondays and Thursdays. Rieck said new programming will be added in that 9 a.m. slot on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Tuesday’s show will be The Koffee Klatch with Kathy Rieck. This programming is tailored toward listeners nearing retirement. There will be a wide range of topics discussed, some of which may include insurance, healthy living, credit card fraud and more. Wednesday will be the Radio Ranch show with Chad Rieck. “We will have guests on to talk about new technology and new farming practices,” Rieck said. “It’s geared toward our farming listeners, but I also want to have some entry level information that can be educational for all listeners.” Fridays will be Level “B” with Ben Walter. This show is an outdoors-type show for men and women with topics such as grilling, camping, fishing, hunting, motorcycles and other related information. The Agri Talk show will start at 10 a.m. and the new, expanded mid-day show will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include more local sports with Gary Bucklin.

Demolition is partly finished on Nodaway Diner in Greenfield March 20. Vicki and Jerry Eshelman, owners of the diner, sold the property to Casey’s General Stores. The Eschelmans also purchased property in Atlantic, where their new restaurant will tentatively open in late summer.

New diner location Vicki and Jerry Eshelman will be renaming and relocating their business. The new diner will be Farmers Walnut Street Diner, 319 Walnut St., Atlantic. The decision to sell the Nodaway Diner came after being approached by Casey’s General Stores in February 2013. Issue Unfortunately, an issue arose during the sale to Casey’s. “I guess the time was right. I mean, it was and it wasn’t. But, if we could have finished the deal last year, it would have been a better deal for us because we lost a lot of business because people thought we were already closed,” Vicki said. “But, they (Casey’s) drug their feet out, but we got them nailed down.” After Casey’s approached the Eshelmans about selling the property, the Eshelmans approached the former owner of Farmers Kitchen in Atlantic and purchased it. They gutted it and started a remodel into Farmers Walnut Street Diner, but had to stop work temporarily because of the issue with Casey’s. “If we’d have known that

this was going to drag out for over a year, we probably never would have done it,” Vicki said. “We would have stayed where we were at.” According to Vicki, Casey’s kept giving them a “runaround” by delaying the deal. The deal was supposed to go through in November, but the convenience store company asked for a 90-day extension, which was granted. Then, in February, the company asked for another 90day extension, which was not granted. However, the company waited until the final 15 minutes of the purchase window to complete the deal. Part of the deal included payment to the Eshelmans for demolishing the building themselves, which occurred March 20. “I had mixed emotions all along,” Vicki said. “I still do.”

Diner The Eshelmans purchased the property for Nodaway Diner in 1995 from John and Wanda Scott. “We were running one (restaurant) in Bridgewater,” said Vicki. “We just weren’t able to do anything because we rented the building, and this building became available. So, we bought it.” Eventually, the couple opened Nodaway Diner. “When we got it all put together and opened on the 15th of March, 1995, we got a huge response,” Vicki said. “It was a lot more than what we were used to in Bridgewater.” For the following six months, the Eshelmans ran their Bridgewater restaurant, Bridgewater Cafe, before selling. Then, their time was spent running Nodaway Diner and improving it. “We did a lot of remodeling on the building on the inside,” Vicki said. The inside of the building was remodeled in 2004, a pitched roof was added in 2010 to prevent leaks and the entrance was also changed. Vicki said service came from all over, including Creston, Stuart and Earlham.

me?” Miller said. “I said, really?” Miller said she was surprised by Rusk’s baking ability and brought her to work at The Early Bird. The Early Bird staff has a five additional wait staff, some of which also work at Jamie’s Coffee Mill and Deli.

The Early Bird

What struck Miller the most of the building in which The Early Bird is located was the details of the original 20 foot wood bar inside. With the exception of the bar, Miller gutted the

entire interior of the former Office Bar and Grill. Miller, who enjoys design and decorating, refinished The Early Bird to have modern, yet rustic country decor and fixtures. Woodwork salvaged from old homes frame the doorways and crown moulding was added around the perimeter of the ceiling. The walls received a facelift, too. Each panel of beadboard was removed, coated with fresh paint and reinstalled to brighten the space. An iron bird-cage chandelier and new light fixtures were added and all new

ceiling tins were put in. To complement the space, old, framed, black and white photos of Mount Ayr hang on the walls. “It was a lot of work,” Miller said. “But, worth it.” The Early Bird opens at 6:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Breakfast ends at 10:30 a.m. and the bakery closes at 2 p.m. For more information,

HEALTH

Walking: the old way to get fit is new again (BPT) — With so many fitness trends, you might not think of walking as good exercise. If you’re not thrusting a kettlebell over your head, pushing a tractor trailer tire or shaking your hips to a Top 40 dance beat in a scheduled group class, you’re not cutting it, right? Well, not so fast. Walking is actually a great way to get in shape. In fact, if you walk often enough and fast enough, the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other can satisfy your body’s daily requirement for aerobic activity. Walking may just seem like an old method of exercise; it certainly is tried and true. But quite the opposite of outdated, it seems to be making a resurgence in the health, fitness and medical worlds as a low-cost solution to the nation’s ongoing health care crisis. Renowned medical expert Dr. Andrew Weil is an advocate of walking as a crucial method of preventative care. He advocates

walking as a low-risk means to optimum health. “With a consistent, brisk walking routine, you can boost your immune system, help manage weight, improve your mood and help ease depression, as well as improve cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and prevent osteoporosis,” says Weil. “The additional benefits may be endless.” Regarded as a leader in the world of integrative medicine, Weil is part of a panel of experts with Vionic Innovation Lab, an innovative footwear company leading the way for proper foot health and active lifestyle solutions. With new products such as the Zen walking shoe, Vionic offers podiatrist-designed technology in contemporary styles, providing an innovative support for anyone in need of a-supportive shoe or sandal to start or improve her walking routine. The walking movement is growing: The Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention reports that between 2005 and 2010, the number of adults who walked for 10 minutes or more at least once a week rose from 56 to 62 percent - an increase of almost 20 million people. Need more convincing reasons to walk onto the bandwagon? Here’s why walking for exercise is so ideal: • Walking is what your body is designed to do. • Among all forms of aerobic exercise, walking carries the least risk of injury. • You can walk almost anywhere, any time. • Nearly everyone can walk, and it’s something you can do throughout your life. • It’s free. • There’s no special skill, training, or equipment needed - all you need is the right footwear. The buzz about walking has even reached the stars.Fitness trainer to celebrities such as Kate Walsh, Pink and Stacey Kiebler, Juliet

Kaska has been known to start many of her high-profile clientele with a consistent walking routine. Also contributing to the Vionic Innovation lab as a lifestyle expert, Kaska recommends walking as a great baseline for any fitness program, but reminds her followers

to “invest in a good pair of walking shoes. They will do wonders for your posture and joints. Minimizing the impact of each step. Look for lightweight flexible shoes and be sure to replace them often, especially if you’re walking every day.” As you develop your

walking program, set your own pace. As a general rule, taking 10,000 steps a day is a great goal for improving your overall physical, emotional and mental fitness. But the journey, as they say, begins with a single step. There’s no better time than now to begin.

Write down your worries. You’ll see how often you think of disastrous things. Then when you imagine a catastrophe (my boss disagreed with me, and I am going to get fired!), you can consciously counter it (maybe he wants an open discussion so we can get the best results. I’ll ask). And consider this fourstep journey to optimism: 1. A daily walk of 30-60 minutes, aiming for 10,000 steps every day, no excuses. Dispelling stress through physical activity is calming and empowering. 2. Do something special (big or small) for a friend or family member once a week. The positive feedback will start you looking happily forward to next week’s interaction. 3. Practice mindful meditation 15 minutes a day. 4. Volunteer at a community center or charity; focus your attention on helping make the world better for others. The rewards are, well, apocalyptic! GENDER-SPECIFIC MEDS In the sci-fi masterpiece “The Left Hand of Darkness,” Ursula K. Le Guin imagines a world without gender, where everyone’s a blend of male and female. Now, that may sound boring, but it sure would make it easier to determine the effectiveness and side effects of medications. In our world, many drugs have distinct benefits and risks, depending on whether Jack or Jill takes them. New research on the Type 2 diabetes drug metformin (more than 46 million prescriptions are written in North America annually)

reveals that it has a positive effect on women’s heart function, but not on men’s, and may even increase a man’s risk of heart failure! And last year the Food and Drug Administration cut gals’ recommended dose for the sleep aid zolpidem in half. Unfortunately, this was only after women (but not men) taking the drug ended up in more traffic accidents. Even aspirin has gender-specific effects: Taking it daily cuts men’s risk of heart attack by 32 percent, but not women. However, a daily dose reduces women’s risk of stroke 17 percent, while men don’t get that protection. This is especially important for women on hormone therapy. So it’s often good for both genders to take two low-dose aspirin a day — with water before and after — but for different reasons. Because there’s not a lot of gender-specific info on many meds, it’s extra-smart to notice how your medications affect you. If they seem oddly ineffective or you think you’re experiencing side effects, talk to your doc about whether your gender may be making a difference. *** 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.

Duped by fruit When Bullwinkle the Moose tells his buddy Rocket J. Squirrel, “Hey, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!” a rabbit is never what appears. That kind of switcheroo isn’t so comic, however, when certain snack and cereal bars claim on their front label that they contain (ta da!) Real Fruit. If you look at the ingredients list (in very small type hidden on the back) to see what you’re really getting, like Bullwinkle, it might not be what you were hoping for. The ingredients in these supposedly fruit-packed and, you assume, healthy meal substitutes and snack bars are listed in order of weight. Chances are good that high fructose corn syrup along with other sugars and fats are the first three to five ingredients. After that you might see mention of the advertised “real” fruit, but it’s usually something like strawberryflavored fruit pieces (sugar, cranberries, citric acid, natural strawberry flavor with other natural flavors, elderberry juice concentrate and oil). Huh? And that’s followed by a parade of health-damaging partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats), artificial colors and preservatives. We found one with TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone), a synthetic antioxidant used in varnishes and lacquers. Now, you may not want to go as far as one woman did — she sued a large food manufacturer when she noticed her “real strawberry fruit snack” contained only pear concentrate. But while the Food and Drug Administration tries to chase down

Weekly healthy tips Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Dr. Michael Roizen, M.D.

the companies that make these misleading claims on their labels, we say choose real real fruit if you want a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. FOLIC ACID FOLLIES The Ziegfeld Follies were the epitome of glitzy, amusing Vaudeville shows from 1907 to 1930. But today’s Folic Acid Follies are no laughing matter: Only about 40 percent of North American women take a folic acid supplement, and the average North American gets less than half the recommended intake. If this essential nutrient doesn’t show up in the daily diet of women who can become pregnant, fetal development can be compromised. (We recommend that women and men get 400 mcg daily from a supplement and make sure to eat folate-rich leafy vegetables, sunflower seeds, asparagus, citrus fruit, beans and 100 percent whole grains.) Now, it’s long been known that folic acid helps a fetus develop properly and prevents birth defects such as spina bifida. But maybe the latest research news will inspire every woman of child-bearing age, whether you plan to get pregnant or not (remember, about half of all pregnancies are unplanned), to follow the recommendations. In one study, taking a folic acid supplement from four weeks before conception through the first eight weeks of pregnancy cut the

risk of having a child with autism by 40 percent! We suggest you take it for 12 weeks before conception. And whatever your age, get plenty of folic acid every day. Tip: Prepared and packaged foods such as breads, rice, and breakfast cereals are fortified with folic acid, but they often come loaded with added sugar and syrup. So we say, avoid those and go for nutrition-packed leafy greens and a 400 mcg supplement! HOW SATURATED FATS MAKE YOU FATTER When “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’s” shape-shifting Odo (Rene Auberjonois) decides to change the way his body looks, he morphs from a gelatinous blob to a sleek, spandexclad sheriff in an instant. He never worries that his physique is a hazard to his health. But monoforms (as Odo calls humans) aren’t so lucky. Not only are you born with a predisposition to a certain body type, but your lifestyle choices can morph your body into shapes that cause a whole universe of health problems. Everyone knows that you can have a younger RealAge, more energy, a sharper brain and a better sex life if you get 30-60 minutes of physical exercise, eat nine servings of fruits and veggies daily, don’t smoke, go easy on alcohol and meditate for 10 minutes every day. But did

you know you can change where and how much fat is deposited on your body if you switch from saturated fats (in four-legged animal protein, two-legged skin and palm and coconut oils) to unsaturated fats (in canola, olive and sunflower oils)? Turns out the saturated fat you eat adds fat to your liver (associated with heart disease and diabetes) and your abdomen. That visceral fat makes big trouble. Unsaturated fat helps build muscle! So your fat- and shapeshifting moves should include: eating only nonfat diary; avoiding all red meat; sticking with lean, skinless poultry and fish; cooking with mono- and polyunsaturated vegetable oils; and eating a handful of walnuts or almonds daily. Watch things take a new shape. CUT OUT CATASTROPHIZING Hundreds of movies and TV shows from “On the Beach” (1959) to “Falling Skies” (2011) seem designed to express your secret fears (and, say some doctors, dispel the anxiety that fuels those worries). But in the movie of your life, assuming your future is going to be filled with doom and gloom makes it difficult for you to be healthy and productive. Catastrophizing can contribute to heart disease, gastrointestinal distress, respiratory conditions and chronic pain disorders. It also obliterates the positive things you can do to improve your life and the lives of those around you. So if you think it may be time to rescript the doomsday scenes in your life, try this:

Panther girls return state meet experience By SCOTT VICKER

National Digest

Badgers coast ANAHEIM — Bo Ryan may have his most offensively gifted team yet. The defense is still there too. Wisconsin’s crisp ball movement and passing picked apart Baylor’s zone and the Badgers’ third Sweet 16 appearance in the last four years finally resulted in a win. Frank Kaminsky had 19 points and six blocks and Wisconsin routed Baylor, 69-52, in a West Region semifinal from Anaheim. Second-seeded Wisconsin, which hasn’t reached a Regional Final since 2005, hasn’t made the Final Four during Ryan’s tenure since he took over the program in 2001. It’ll get a shot Saturday against the winner of the Arizona/San Diego State game later in Anaheim. Ben Brust tallied 14 points and six rebounds, while Nigel Hayes added 10 points and six boards for the Badgers, who tallied 18 assists on 26 made field goals (26-of-50).

29 straight MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Florida Gators are back where their last three seasons have ended with yet another chance to go to the Final Four. Michael Frazier II hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points as the Gators beat UCLA 79-68 Thursday night to reach its fourth consecutive NCAA regional final. The Gators (35-2) also extended the best winning streak in school history to 29 straight in reaching the South Regional final.

Late spark ANAHEIM, Calif. — Nick Johnson put an awful first half behind him and came up big for Arizona in the final 2:45. The Pac-12 player of the year scored all of his 15 points over that span after missing his first 10 shots, and helped Arizona hold off San Diego State 70-64 on Thursday night to reach the final eight of the NCAA tournament. Mostly, Johnson hit free throws, making all 10 of his attempts to go with a field goal and a 3-pointer after the Aztecs shut him down for the first 37 minutes. Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 15 points each for the top-seeded Wildcats (33-4), who will try to win a West Regional final for the first time in Anaheim. They’re 0-3 at Honda Center going into Saturday’s game against second-seeded Wisconsin (29-7).

Dayton rolls MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Like a red and blue blur, the Dayton Flyers were pressing and passing, shooting and scoring. The waves never seemed to stop coming, with 10, 11 and then 12 players giving them quality minutes. An exhausted and foulplagued Stanford simply couldn’t keep up. The underdog Flyers — the No. 11 seed in the South Region — are now in the Elite Eight for the first time since 1984 after an emphatic 82-72 victory Thursday night.

Out of the 1,813 team points scored by the Creston girls track team last year, 28.9 percent of those points were accounted for by last year’s senior class. All together, 41.6 percent of last year’s scoring is no longer on the team this year for various reasons. But, that doesn’t mean head coach Clay Arnold has an inexperienced team this year. Nor does it mean he has a team without quality. “We lost a lot and we knew we were going to, but it was only a small portion of our team,” Arnold said. “Nothing dramatic. We’ve got a lot coming back. There’s a lot of state experience and there’s a ton of varsity experience coming back. It’s a good mix.” The Panthers return six athletes with previous state meet experience, highlighted by senior Chelcee Downing. Downing has competed at the state meet each of her previous three seasons. And Arnold believes she’s having her Downing best spring season yet this year. “Best spring thus far of her career,” Arnold said. “She has had a great attitude, great work ethic and really started becoming a good leader for us. There were a lot of superstar girls

on this team the first three years of her career that got a lot of the press and Chelcee has always been kind of the role player there. We hadn’t needed her to step up and fill those roles, but she has been doing a good job of that.” This year’s team also features a strong junior class that returns four athletes with state meet experience. Maria and Natalie Mostek, Nicole Haley and Raegen Smith all competed at the state meet last year. Sophomore Taylor Briley, hamstrung by a hamstring injury so far this spring, also has state meet experience.

Prospects The nine new athletes on the team this year have come in ready to compete.

Heustis returns to Missouri Valley with big game Southwestern picks up first wins of season By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

MARSHALL, Mo. — Southwestern’s Chris Heustis had his eyes set on Wednesday’s games here against Missouri Valley’s JV team. The redshirt freshman catcher from Kansas City spent last year on the Missouri Valley baseball team. After it became clear he would be placed on the JV squad, Heustis transferred to Southwestern. “He was a little bit fired up yesterday,” Southwestern head coach Brian “Bull” Smith said. “He caught the second game. He had a pretty good game.” A pretty good game is an understatement. Heustis went 4-for-4 at the dish, hitting for the cycle and driving in seven runs as the Spartans completed Heustis a doubleheader sweep over Missouri Valley with a 22-8 win in five innings. Southwestern won the first game of the twinbill 12-2 in five innings. Heustis wasn’t the only one to swing the bat well in the second game. Matt Mayden hit a home run, as did Eric Bueno. Tyler Engelh a r d t Bueno stroked three doubles.

“I had the luxury of sticking with some guys longer ... because we were scoring runs like a pinball machine.” — Brian “Bull” Smith

SWCC head baseball coach

Having that kind of offensive output was a nice luxury to have on Wednesday, a day in which the wind was blowing out of the park at 20 miles per hour. “We got in and we got hooked up in our at-bats pretty good,” Smith said. “Kids worked counts. If they made a mistake, we hit it and hit it square. I felt we had good approaches to our at-bats all day long.” Cole Maharry started the second game on the mound for the Spartans and worked well through the first inning, but began to lose control in the second inning. “We just kept walking guys,” Smith said. “I had the luxury of being able to stick with some guys longer than we normally would because we were scoring runs like a pinball machine. They scored eight runs. I don’t know that they could have scored more than one or two without walks.” Parker Magneson of Urbandale and Sawyer Ocheltree of Casey both saw time on the mound in relief.

Opener The Spartans opened the day with a 12-2 win over Missouri Valley, thanks in Please see SPARTANS, page 7A

“This is the fourth year of the program, and this is the best spring we’ve had so far for practices,” Arnold said. “The girls have had, for the most part, real good attitudes and real good work ethics. Our new girls are really coming in ready to go.” Among the newcomers, freshman Lexie Little looks primed to contribute right away. Little displayed her versatility in an impressive p e r f o r - Little mance at last week’s Central indoor meet. “She was having a super year already in practice, run-

ning in the front of the pack no matter what we were doing,” Arnold said. “So we knew she was going to perform well. She actually exceeded our expectations on Saturday at Central. She led us in the hurdles, led us in the 800s and real close to the top of our 200 girls. She’s been a definite highlight.” Little, along with freshmen Angela Drey and Leah Schuler provide depth in the hurdle events for the Panthers. In Arnold’s first year coaching the program, he didn’t have enough hurdlers to fill out a shuttle hurdle relay. This year, with the three freshmen, he has seven hurdlers. Haley, Madison Hance and Amber Castillo also have hurdling experi-

ence. Freshman Hannah Hood projected to be one of the top throwers in the state this year, but a torn labrum suffered during volleyball season will sideline her for the 2014 track season. Hood had surgery on the labrum Wednesday. Filling her spot in the throwing events will be senior Olivia Nielsen and Hood’s older sister, Marie. Aleisha Larkin will also see some time in the shot put ring. Arnold said he has also seen big improvements from twin sisters Jami and Josie Sickels this spring. “Jami and Josie Sickels Please see PANTHERS, page 7A

UConn’s Garden spot, key injury to Cyclones’ Niang make it tough on Iowa State By STEFAN STEVENSON

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

NEW YORK CITY — The tallest building in Ames, Iowa, is 10 floors and about 132 feet high. Madison Square Garden, the hallowed home of the New York Knicks and Rangers since 1968 and the site of the NCAA East Regional, has as many floors. Iowa State forward Melvin Ejim and his teammates are no doubt impressed with the city that seems to have more towering skyscrapers than Iowa has people. And the history of the Garden isn’t lost on him or his teammates. “This is the mecca of basketball. It’s an incredible arena,” said Ejim, who was making his second visit to the city. “It’s going to be crazy and fun to go out there on the national stage. There’s going to be a lot of memories made here.” The third-seed Cyclones (28-7) have taken on the role of underdog despite being the higher seed against seventh seed Connecticut (28-8) when the teams meet at 6:27 p.m. Friday in the regional semifinals. The Huskies have a second home in MSG, where they’ll be playing for the 112th time. ISU has played here just three times, the last coming in 2004. Will the Garden be a home game for UConn? “I’m not sure. I guess we’ll figure it out when the fans get here,” Ejim said. “It’s closer to their state than ours.” But that’s not the only reason why the Cyclones

might seem to be underdogs. They’ll be without 6-foot7 forward Georges Niang, who broke a bone in his right foot in the Cyclones’ tournament opener against North Carolina Central. The sophomore started the first 35 games. He’ll miss the rest of the tournament, and the Cyclones must find a way to make up for his 16.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists a game. “We run a lot of sets through Georges. He’s one of our play-makers. He’s one of our ball handlers when I don’t have the ball in my hands,” said ISU point guard DeAndre Kane, who’s averaging 17.1 points a game. “A lot of things changed, but for us we just have to stick to the basics. And that’s getting stops, getting the ball off the glass and trying to get out in transition and run. We still have a lot of players that can do a lot of things for the team.” There was little question about how deep a team the Cyclones have been while racing to a 14-0 record and top 10 ranking. After an early three-game losing streak in Big 12 play, coach Fred Hoiberg’s team finished the regular season winning nine of 13 games and then won its first Big 12 tournament title since 2000. The Cyclones escaped North Carolina 85-83 with 6-8 junior Daniel Edozie making his first-career start in place of Niang. Edozie went scoreless in 16 minutes, but others such as Kane and reserve guard Naz Long helped fill the offensive void by scoring a

combined 12 points more than their average. “Our guys had their heads down a little bit when they heard the news just because of how important he is and what we do with Georges,” Hoiberg said. “You can’t replace him with one person. It’s got be a collective effort, and our guys did a great job of that against North Carolina.” Hoiberg played many times at M S G during a 10-year NBA career and the building and its his- Hoiberg tory still resound with him. He never played there while a player at ISU and he’ll be coaching his first game in the 46-yearold building that just had a billion-dollar renovation last year. “I don’t know if there’s a lot of arenas that would have the same impression that a place like Madison Square Garden would,” he said. “They understand it. They see it. They go out there and see the banners. They see the jerseys up there, DeBusschere and Ewing and Frazier and all the great players that played here. So, yeah, to come to New York City and play in the Garden I still think has a great effect on these kids.” ——— ©2014 Fort Worth StarTelegram Distributed by MCT Information Services

Outdoor news Boater reminder

Judging by the inquiries at late winter outdoor shows, anglers and boaters are getting ready for spring. One of the most-asked questions at the DNR booth was about a new regulation requiring drain plugs to be pulled as a boat leaves a ramp. That regulation went into effect last July, so it did not make the 2013 regulations booklet. In the 2014 version, the regulation change is summarized on page 3, but is explained more fully on page 24; “Drain plugs and other water draining devices must be removed and/or remain open during transport. If you want to keep live bait when leaving a water access, you must replace water in bait containers with tap or bottle water.” Anglers leaving with fish are recommended to put them on ice, whether in a cooler, a bucket or a live Regional Championship well (plug must still be removed and/or opened).

ment was ‘soft’ last summer. It will step up this year. Invasive species could range from vegetation such as Eurasian watermilfoil or brittle naiad to water dwelling animals such as zebra mussels—or even minnows purchased elsewhere. Once introduced into another water body, the unwanted species can spread throughout, often with few or no natural predators or vegetation to control the spread. That crowds out native species; disrupting the ecology of the lake or stream … as well as fishing and other recreation. Is it worth the extra few seconds to pull a drain plug or clean that aquatic plant trailing from your boat motor? It can cost a couple million of your license dollars … and three or four years of your fishing recreation to draw down a lake, kill out the invasive species, renovate it, restock it and wait for fish to grow back to catchable size.

Second chance Hunters with a youth turkey season license who are not successful at harvesting a turkey in the April 5-13 youth turkey season can now get a do-over. They may use that unfilled youth license in any of the spring turkey hunting seasons. Youth hunters may also obtain an additional license for the fourth season, if they choose. Last year, 4,100 hunters participated in the youth turkey season and reported harvesting 1,050 turkeys. This new regulation became effective when Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed the bill into law March 14. The youth season information in the hunting regulations was updated online at www.iowadnr.gov/Hunting/HuntingLicensesLaws. aspx to reflect the change in the law. This change occurred after the printed regulations booklets were issued last August.

The customer must have at least six months' use on the relevant meter before a leak adjustment may be requested. A customer desiring a leak adjustment must submit to SIRWA, within two months of the date of the SIRWA bill on which the leak caused additional charges, a written request for a leak adjustment and a copy of the receipt from the repairer of the leak. SIRWA may, at its option, inspect the leak repair before issuing a credit to the customer. b.

both are leap years ahead in terms of strength and athleticism from where they were last year,” he said. “Jami has definitely proved it so far on the track and Josie is right there with her.”

Schedule change The Hawkeye 10 Conference Meet has been moved up a week this year. In the past, it has been held the same week as the State Qualifying Meet. Now, there will be a full week in between conference and state qualifying.

“That’ll be great,” Arnold said. “However, that was when we had the Mount Ayr meet, so that’s off the schedule. I’m real excited to go to Carroll for their meet. We never see Carroll until districts each year, so it will be great to see them.” The Panthers open the season at home Tuesday with the Hawkeye 10 Conference Southern Division Meet. “Hopefully we get to have it,” Arnold said. “We rarely ever do. It’s a good opportunity. It’s unlimited entries, so it’s good opportunities. We load up and see what

everyone’s got in the tank. We get to see our pals from Glenwood right off the bat, so that’s nice.” The Panthers also host the postseason Hawkeye 10 Conference Meet on May 8.

Chicago Tribune

INDIANAPOLIS — When Kentucky and Louisville met at Rupp Arena for an annual showdown Dec. 28, the Wildcats left with state bragging rights. Three months later, both teams care more about tournament triumph. “It’s much bigger than a rivalry,” Louisville senior guard Russ Smith said Thursday. “It’s a Sweet 16 game. You just want to get to the next round. The goal is to get to the Elite Eight.” The teams meet in NCAA tournament play for the sixth time Friday, with Kentucky holding a 3-2 edge entering the game at Lucas Oil Stadium. The winner will advance to play the winner between second-seeded Michigan and 11th-seeded Tennessee. While the history between the coaches and the fans’ distaste for each other casts the game into a must-see event, the evolution of both teams since their first meeting makes it more intriguing. “They’re a much better team today,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said, “and we’re a much better basketball team today.” Fourth-seeded Louisville has the speed and experience edge.

guys. But he’s left-handed and topping out at 86. It was definitely an improvement (over his previous two starts). He made pitches when he had to.” Jason Roberts recorded three hits, including a double and Sawyer Ocheltree got going at the plate with a pair of hits. Bueno also

finished the game with two hits. “They weren’t too strong, but hey, sometimes you need a confidence game,” Smith said. “We’ll take it. Our kids really swung the bat well.” The two wins improve the Spartans to 2-11 for the season.

The Spartans return to home this weekend with a pair of ICCAC twinbills on with Ellsworth. Games begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday. Southwestern is scheduled to travel to Maple Woods in Kansas City on Wednesday, but that doubleheader has been cancelled.

seeded Kentucky has the imposing size advantage. That hasn’t changed since Kentucky beat the Cardinals 73-66, dominating paint scoring and rebounding. But Kentucky is a team that has matured throughout the season with its five starting freshmen. “I mean, we hadn’t really defined the roles because we hadn’t really figured each other out,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “And I wasn’t real specific on how we were going to have to p l a y . Calipari Now I come back to maybe they weren’t ready to accept it two months ago. Then we did something, another little thing that I wish I had done two months earlier before the NCAA tournament. Now we’ve tried one more thing for this weekend.” He didn’t elaborate on the “tweaks” as he has called them, but the Wildcats looked impressive in the first weekend of the tournament, knocking off ninth-seeded Kansas State and top-seeded Wichita State. In the first meeting, freshman forward Julius

The Christmas Doctor

The True Story of Dr. J.P. Weber

Tom Weber This book is dedicated to the memory of Dr. John Peter Weber who often risked his life for others. The book is available on Amazon. The softcover price is $14.95, the hardcover price is $23.99.

About this Book Clive Cussler: “A pity men like him aren’t around anymore. He was a giant in his time.” Russell Baker: “It makes us remember a time when the doctor was a truly heroic figure.” Hugh Sidey: “His kind made this country great.” Judy Collins: “Your writing is evocative of my own love of the West.” Margaret Chase Smith: “It is certainly something that should be read by everyone.” Julie Harris: “What a wonderful doctor. I wish I had known him.” Tipper Gore: “Your writing has that special quality that takes a reader to the time, place and mood you describe.” Liv Ullmann: “You have a wonderful father to remember. I am very moved.” Karl Maiden: “A wonderful story!” Patricia Neal: “If I were a man, I would love to play him on the screen.” Joan Rivers: “If only there were doctors like him today.”

Randle scored 17 points in the first half before leaving four minutes into the second half with leg cramps. That issue has subsided but his presence is still a concern after 22 doubledoubles this season. His plan this time against the Cardinals? “Do what we have been doing all season by posting the ball on our opportunities,” he said. Louisville, the defending tournament champion, is a different team as well. “We were struggling to find an identity at that point,” senior Luke Hancock said. “A lot of changes to our team since then for the better. Guys are filling into their roles and know what they have to do make our team better.” Forward Chane Behanan is no longer on the team. Hancock has moved into a starting role and, after averaging 7.8 points when they first played Kentucky, now is averaging 12.1 points per game while shooting 40 percent. Forward Montrezl Harrell, who may be assigned to handle Randle, scored six points with four rebounds in the first meeting. He now averages 14 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. The Cardinals’ matchup zone defense has been a factor as well. “Guys are making their

rotations when they’re supposed to be getting in there, boxing out when they’re supposed to be,” Hancock said. “Early on in the year, you just don’t make those rotations, and making those small extra plays (like) staying tight when you’re supposed to be and really getting out on shooters. Just a bunch of little things to make our zone more impressive.” Louisville (31-5) has won seven straight games. Kentucky (26-10) has won four of its last five, the only loss coming in the SEC championship by a point against top-ranked Florida. Calipari bristled when the Wildcats’ regular season was described as a struggle. But that perception has helped them evolve, he said. “It wasn’t disappointing, but that’s what they had to hear,” he said. “They had to hear how bad they were as players, how selfish they were, they’re not together. This isn’t a team. You can’t do this. This is what’s wrong. And instead of separating, they stuck together. They kept believing in one another.” ——— ©2014 Chicago Tribune Visit the Chicago Tribune at www.chicagotribune.com Distributed by MCT Information Services

In Memory of

Brandon Gale

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly. In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

We love and miss you, Brandon!

Senate passes bills to aid renewable energy production Senators passed to bills that bolster state tax credits for solar and renewable energy n

DES MOINES (MCT) – The Iowa Senate, with bipartisan support Thursday, passed legislation designed to help expand renewable energy production in Iowa and the jobs that likely will come with it. Senators voted 46-0 to pass two separate bills that bolster state tax credits for solar and renewable energy. Four GOP senators – Rick Bertand of Sioux City, Nancy Boettger of Harlan, Joni Ernst of Red Oak and Hubert Houser of Carson – were absent during Thursday’s Senate floor action. “Iowa is showing the nation that clean energy works,” said Sen. Rob Hogg, D-Cedar Rapids, who served as floor manager for Senate File 2340 and Senate File 2343. He told his colleagues that Iowa already is a leader in wind energy and ethanol and the bills that now go to the House for further consideration would move the state forward in solar power and biofuel areas. SF 2340 would triple the amount of solar energy tax credits available to Iowa farmers, homeowners, and businesses, building on Iowa’s 2012 tax credit which encouraged Iowans to install solar energy systems. “By tripling the solar tax credit, Iowa will respond to the rapidly growing demand for solar power and maximize the benefit for Iowans from federal solar tax credits which expire at the end of 2016,” Hogg said. “This is a big day; this is a big deal.” The other measure, SF 2343, would extend the deadline to complete wind and other projects using Iowa’s Renewable Energy Tax Credits. The Senate deferred on a third bill, SF 2344, that proposed to increase the tax credit for gasoline blended with 15 percent ethanol dur-

ing summer months and extend the bio-diesel production tax credit for five years. In other action, senators voted 46-0 to change Iowa law that requires that gift cards not redeemed within five years be turned over to the State Treasurer’s Office as unclaimed or abandoned property – an approach that mirrors federal law. Under the amended version of HF 2296 that was sent back to the House for further consideration, a card without an expiration date would remain valid in perpetuity. Sen. Daryl Beall, D-Fort Dodge, the bill’s floor man-

Rick Bertand of Sioux City, Nancy Boettger of Harlan, Joni Ernst of Red Oak and Hubert Houser of Carson were absent for Thursday’s Senate floor action.

administrators and teachers earlier this month. The $17,750 was raised during the PTO’s annual carnival and other fundraising activities.

ager, said the measure only applies to gift cards and certificates issued by Iowa-based companies after June 30, 2014. The Senate-passed measure included new provisions for certain “closed loop” gift certificates that generally are purchased by a buyer for use by a person other than the buyer to be redeemable for merchandise only with no expiration date, fees or deductions if a holder fails to present it in a timely manner. If the card remains unprecedented, it continues in force and is not subject to a presumption of abandonment. The Treasurer’s Office reported that in fiscal year 2013 about $262,000 worth of unredeemed cards went into unclaimed property. —————— ©2014 The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) Distributed by MCT Information Services

ENTERTAINMENT Insight into inspections Dear Heloise: What do inspectors look at when doing an ANNUAL CAR INSPECTION? — A Reader, via email Good question! It is handy to know what they are looking for before taking your car to be inspected so you can make any necessary repairs beforehand. You wouldn’t want to get there and be rejected just to have to pay a second time! Here is what they look at: • Horn • Windshield wipers • Mirrors • Steering • Seat belts • Brakes • Tires • Wheel assembly • Exhaust system and exhaust emission system • Headlights, taillights, turn signals, front and rear reflectors • Serial or vehicle identification number • Gas caps • Window tint. If any of these things is broken or missing, you might not pass a state inspection. Some states may look at other things, too. If you are unsure, check out your state’s requirements, or ask at a state inspection location. — Heloise SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise

Hints from Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 782795000 Fax: 1-210-HELOISE Email: Heloise@Heloise. com TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: I have found some handy ways to reuse the zippered bags from sheet sets. I use them to store my needlework supplies for the current project I’m working on. This way, I can easily pick it up and take it with me wherever I go. They also are great for keeping toiletries organized when I travel. Everything is visible and stays off clothing. — Janice in Houston OUT OF SIGHT Dear Readers: The next time you are unpacking groceries, try to organize the fridge and pantry with the junk food in the back. If you put the healthier foods up front where they can be easily gotten to and the junk food where it is a hassle to get to, you should find yourself eating healthier. Out of sight, out of mind.

Horoscope Saturday, March 29, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your attraction to a new friend might not sit well with a third party, especially if he or she is worried about money or sharing property. Enjoy what you can. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A partner or close friend might be jealous because he or she suspects you are attracted to your boss or someone in a position of authority. This person sees it as tough competition. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Travel opportunities hopefully will override your responsibilities at work, because you do want to escape. Do your homework and see if you can slip away. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Romance is sweet and affectionate today; nevertheless, someone objects. This could be someone in authority (like a boss or a parent), or just obstacles that make things tough. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a wonderful day to schmooze with others, especially partners and close friends. You can attend to duties and responsibilities at home later. (One hopes.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Romance with someone at work might begin for some of you today. All of you will enjoy hanging out with co-workers. Nevertheless, someone is a party pooper. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Sports events, the arts, playful times with children and romantic connections all are positive choices today. The only downside is that sometimes these things cost money. Too much! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are industrious at home, making things look better or introducing improvements to where you live. Bravo! Don’t listen to those who criticize and discourage you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You have lots of mental energy today because your mind is in a positive head space. This will help you to succeed if you have to sell, market, teach, act or write anything. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a good day for business, commerce and all financial matters. However, you also will enjoy shopping and buying beautiful treasures for yourself and loved ones.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You’ll actively pursue pleasure today, because why not? Venus in your sign is getting a full charge from Mars. Naturally, authority figures are suspicious. Oh well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Secret love affairs might take place for some today, because something hidden is taking place. For others, it will be easy to discover buried treasure, secrets and the answer to a mystery. YOU BORN TODAY You wait to see if others are serious

When you are looking for a quick midnight snack, go for the carrots instead of a cookie because it is right in front. If you are a parent, try not to let the kids know about all the great snacks you have hidden until they make a dent in the vegetables and fruits that go bad so quickly. My mother would make a great olive-nut spread and hide it in a mayo jar in the back of the fridge so that I wouldn’t know it was in there. — Heloise MOMMY GROUP Dear Heloise: It is always hard to get out and run errands when you have small kids. Some mommy friends have a started a baby-sitting group. Each mom takes turns watching the kids for a few hours once a week. That way, the other moms can get some errands done or have a little BEETLE BAILEY® by Greg & Mort Walker “mommy time” (like getting a pedicure!). — Tiffany, via email EMPTY BOTTLE Dear Heloise: When a bottle of perfume runs out, depending on the size of the bottle, I place the empty bottle, uncapped, in a drawer. It gives the drawer a scent, and it’s one I know I like, so I use it instead of a sachet. — A Reader in Tennessee (c)2014 by King Features Syndicate Inc. BLONDIE® by Dean Young

before you take them seriously. You are idealistic and loyal. Once you perceive your path or life direction, you just go forward. You can laugh at yourself and see life’s ironies. In the first half of this year, save your money for the second half. Also look for ways to cut back on expenses. These are choices.
