High-tech treasure hunt

YMCA to host Healthy Kids Day Saturday

Boy Scout Troop No. 129, other Crestonians now participating in geocaching

By SARAH BROWN

CNA staff reporter sbrown@crestonnews.com

Union County Boy Scout Troop No. 129 learned an unusual lesson in technology — outside. This March, the scouts participated in a high-tech treasure hunt, otherwise known as geocaching. Geocaching is described as a treasure hunting game where participants use global positioning system (GPS) coordinates to hide and seek containers with other participants. The sport has become so popular, the Boy Scouts of America established a geocaching merit badge in 2010. At the end of the rainbow Geocaching hobbyist and Troop Leader Joe Anson of Creston took his scouts to Rainbow Park to not only locate “treasure,” but to teach the scouts about geocaching. With his scouts gathered around him, Anson opened up a geocaching application on his smartphone, which indicated a cache - or waterproof container — was hidden within the park. As Anson showed the map on his phone to the scouts, he explained to them some important elements and details of the hunt. “You can use the compass or the map,” said Anson. “This shows you the distance and terrain.” Within minutes, the scouts located the cache. The scouts opened it to find a logbook and trinkets. “Here is where you record that you have located it,” said Anson. In addition to signing the log book, Anson asked one of his scouts to take a trinket and leave a new trinket. A poker chip was placed in the cache and placed back in the same spot.

Anson said, placing the cache in the same spot in which it was found is an important step to ensure the coordinates orginially assigned will still lead other geocachers to the same spot. ‘Part of what we teach them is to leave no trace,” said Anson. “When we do activities outside, they are to leave it the way they found it.” Other lessons boyscouts learn while obtaining a geocaching merit badge are: Using waypoints or markers to navigate, defining terrains, using maps and GPS, using coordinates, working as partners and outdoor safety. Geocaching is also an activity that keeps participants active. Geocaching in Creston According to www.geocaching.com, there are more than 2,356,887 caches - or containers - hidden throughout the world. There are at least five caches hidden in Creston. One of the first, called “Mandy’s Surprise,” was hidden in 2007. Anson said geocaching is becoming more popular in the area, as more caches are appearing in southwest Iowa. The caches are hidden in well,

but not every buried or places extremely difficult to access. “We hid one this week and someone already found it,” said Anson. After their first find in Rainbow Park, the scouts headed to Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church to locate a cache Anson has been looking for, but was unable to find. Within minutes, the scouts had located it. “It wasn’t that hard to find,” said Adam Petitt. Petitt suggested looking up. Geocaching Each cache, or container, is logged on www.geocaching. com. When a cache is hidden, it’s location has to be approved by a website moderator before its coordinates becomes available to the public. Only registered users of the site, which the applications downloaded to their phone or using a GPS device are able to locate each cache. Once a cache is found, the finder is asked to fill out the log within the cache and log the find on the website. An option to upload a photo of the find is available, too. “It’s a lot of fun,” said Pettit. “They loved it,” said Anson.

“We’re getting ready to hide another.” To learn more about geocaching and instructions to download the geocaching application on your phone, visit www.geocaching.com.

To kick-start physical activity and learning now and throughout the summer – a critical out-of-school time for kids – on Saturday the Southern Prairie YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day with a free community event for kids and families. YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day features games, health screenings, arts and crafts, swimming and a fun run to motivate and teach families how to develop a healthy routine at home. “At YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, we are focusing on health and education to ensure fewer children are at an increased risk for childhood obesity and more children succeed in school,” said Executive Director Jacki Steffen, Southern Prairie YMCA. “We know that during summer, research shows that kids are more likely to gain weight and Steffen fall behind academically than during the school year. Health Kids Day is not just a single day of fun, active play and learning – it’s a kick off to helping parents get a jump on creating a healthier summer.” Saturday will be a day to get moving at the Y. The morning begins at 8 a.m. with a 5K run starting at the YMCA. At the start of Healthy Kids Day at 9 a.m., all kids are welcome for a kid’s fun run. The activity continues with sample swim lessons for kids more than 4 years of age. This will give parents and children a chance to find out what level they will be ready for when it comes to summer swim lessons. Scuba demonstrations are also available for ages 10 and over with a parent present. Throughout the morning, area businesses and organizations will be providing activities and information for parents and children. The Y will be leading fitness classes and obstacle courses, too. The fun continues with free open swim for the whole family from 1-4 p.m.

A fitting container Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, regarding medication packaging: “Why don’t drug manufacturers put their products into containers that fit them? The bottles for many medications are huge, only half-full and hard to handle for people with arthritis. It also seems that the price of medications would be lower if the containers were smaller.” — F.A., Lebanon, Pa. Good question! Most likely it’s because they buy the bottles in bulk, and in this case one size fits all! — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses for cloth wine carriers (the six-pack kind): • Store hair dryers, curling irons, etc., in them. • Keep yarn or other craft supplies separated. • Store ornaments in them for protection. • Put glasses in one when moving. • Use when grocery shopping for other bottled items. — Heloise STAINED TUB Dear Heloise: I’m a real estate agent, and I have a client who has brownish stains

Hints from Heloise in a fiberglass tub. Any suggestions? — Cathie B., Twin Falls, Idaho To clean a fiberglass tub, just use baking soda and water. Wash the tub with the mixture, let sit for an hour or so and then rinse. If you have stubborn stains, you can make a baking-soda paste and scrub the stains with a brush or sponge. Make sure not to use anything rough or abrasive, because it can scratch the tub and make things worse. But please note that if the stains are brownish, it’s most likely from the water, either from a well or from rust in the plumbing. Baking soda can be used for so many things around the house.

One evening, he found a small finch flying around his bedroom and called me for counsel. We decided that his best bet to free the bird was to darken all the indoor lights, turn on the patio light and open the sliding glass door. He shined a flashlight on the ceiling.

The number of consecutive wins over Charlotte by the Miami Heat.

National Digest Brawl PITTSBURGH — Ryan Braun homered in the ninth inning to tie it, then Khris Davis hit a home run in the 14th that put Milwaukee ahead for good. Yet those were hardly the big blows that attracted all the attention Sunday in the Brewers’ 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected after a shouting match quickly escalated into a punch-filled brawl in the third. The problems started when Gomez paused at the plate and flipped his bat to watch his two-out drive off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole. Cole said he told Gomez: “If you’re going to hit it out of the ballpark, then you can stop and look at it. But it you’re going to hit just a fly ball to center field, then don’t stand and look at it.” That didn’t sit well with Gomez. He took a couple steps toward Cole and the benches and bullpens emptied.

Panthers win Winterset tourney title By LARRY PETERSON

CNA sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

WINTERSET — Creston got a surprise first-round matchup, but withstood the challenge for yet another overtime victory on the way to capturing the championship of the Winterset Soccer Tournament Saturday. Indianola was a new team in the field this year, and the Class 3A school coached by a former colleague of Creston coach Jesus Rodriguez posed a formidable challenge. The Indians first broke the scoreless tie in the second half, but the Panthers responded to tie it as McClain Haines beat the Indianola defense and shot it past the goalkeeper for a goal. Haines then scored with six minutes left in overtime to give the Panthers their third overtime win of the week. “I told the guys, whoever won that first game of the

tournament, would probably be favored to win the championship,” Rodriguez said. “I told coach (Diaconu) that we have a better team than people think. We created opportunities and set the tempo.” Grant Webster, Indianola coach, was a senior on the Graceland University team when Rodriguez, a former Graceland player, was serving as an assistant coach for the Yellowjackets. “They are well-coached, and they had a really good center mid,” Rodriguez said. “We could not let him turn and shoot. Our defense the past few games has carried us, and that’s without (Tayler) Pettit. Trevor Frain was playing center back and he is hard to go by.” Rodriguez said Pettit will likely return a week from tonight at Atlantic, to start a rugged week that also includes matches against Lewis Central and Glenwood. Winterset beat Oskaloosa 3-1 in the other first-round

match Saturday. In the championship round, Creston dominated the action in shutting out the Huskies, 3-0. Winterset fell to 2-4 with the loss. “We capitalized with the wind in the first half and scored all three of our goals, all by Conner Pals,” Rodriguez said. “If Conner had scored one more, he would have tied his brother Seth for most goals in a match. Pals We started subbing in the second half to get everybody in, and it’s been a long week for the guys with so many overtime matches.” Two of Pals’ goals came on set pieces off corner kicks by Levi Eblen, who also handles the throw-ins from the scoring zone.

The week included overtime wins over Class 1A ninth-ranked Underwood and a Denison-Schleswig team that had gotten ratings votes in Class 2A. The Panthers (6-1) host Nodaway Valley tonight in JV and varsity action.

Westphal shines in win over Kirkwood By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

Southwestern got a strong pitching performance in the third game of a four-game weekend set with Kirkwood here Friday and Saturday to take one out of the four games from the Eagles. In Saturday’s opener, redshirt freshman Ethan

Westphal of Winterset tossed six strong innings to put the Spartans in position to win the game. Westphal allowed just two hits and struck out 10 in his six innings of work, before giving way to Jason Roberts to close out the final three innings of the nine-inning game. “He was really strong,” Southwestern head coach Brian “Bull” Smith said.

Heat win MIAMI — Each of the last two Miami championship runs has been highlighted by moments where a sharpshooter enters a game and immediately provides a surprise spark. James Jones got his turn Sunday. And the lift he brought, combined with the expected playoff showings from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, have the Heat off and running in these playoffs. James scored 27 points, Wade added 23 and the Heat rode two big runs — one late in the first half, the other down the stretch — to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-88 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series. Miami trailed for much of the first half, but rallied and has now topped Charlotte 17 straight times.

‘Hurricane’ dies TORONTO — Rubin “Hurricane’’ Carter, the boxer whose wrongful murder conviction became an international symbol of racial injustice, died Sunday at 76. John Artis, a longtime friend and caregiver, told The Canadian Press that Carter died in his sleep Sunday. Carter had been stricken with prostate cancer in Toronto, the New Jersey native’s adopted home. Carter spent 19 years in prison for three murders at a tavern in Paterson, New Jersey, in 1966. He was convicted alongside Artis in 1967 and again in a new trial in 1976. Carter was freed in November 1985 when his convictions were set aside after years of appeals and public advocacy. His ordeal and the alleged racial motivations behind it were publicized in Bob Dylan’s 1975 song “Hurricane,’’ several books and a 1999 film starring Denzel Washington, who received an Academy Award nomination for playing the boxer turned prisoner.

Southwestern redshirt freshman Ethan Westphal, who played high school baseball at Lenox and MartensdaleSt. Marys, comes home with a pitch during a Saturday afternoon game against Kirkwood. Westphal went six innings, allowing just two hits and striking out 10 in a 5-3 win.

“A lot of people don’t realize, you may come back as strong after Tommy John surgery, but it may take awhile to get the feel back. He’s not the kind of guy that would walk a ton of guys. We’re getting him linked in now.” Westphal exited with a 4-2 lead after six. Roberts gave up one run and three hits in his three innings of Roberts work to earn the save. “He’s a high pitch count guy because he strikes out a lot of guys,” Smith said about Westphal. “I made the decision we were going to use Jason Roberts to help us get the win. We were going to stack those two and make sure we got a win in that game.” Roberts had originally been tabbed as the starter for Saturday’s second game. Zeb Noel hit a late h o m e run to give the Spartans an insurance run Noel in the 5-3 win. Southwestern nearly came away with a win in the second game of the series on Friday, but couldn’t come out on top of a 17-15 slugfest. That game featured 32 runs on 32 hits. Kirkwood finished with 15 hits in the

game compared to 17 by the Spartans. “Neither team could get anybody out,” Smith said. “The difference in the ballgame really was that we had two innings in the game where we didn’t score and they had none.” Kirkwood jumped out to a 7-0 lead before the Spartan bats came alive. “Our kids, I thought they had great at-bats,” Smith said. “They had a lot of two-strike hits and really worked counts well. I think we had the bases loaded, and we just couldn’t get the last hit we needed.” Alessio Pena went 3-for-4 in the game with a double, while Gage Gavin finished 2-5 with a double. Matt Mayden went 4-5 with two doubles. Eric Bueno finished 4-5 with a double and a h o m e r u n . J a s o n Roberts knocked two hits, Bueno including a home run. Chris Heustis also finished with two hits. Southwestern dropped the other two games of the series by scores of 12-2 in eight innings on Friday and 15-3 in five innings on Saturday. The Spartans, now 5-25 overall and 2-18 in the ICCAC, travel to Indian Hills on Wednesday for the final road trip of the season. Southwestern then hosts Iowa Lakes (14-16, 4-12) on Saturday and Sunday.

Spartans split at Ellsworth IOWA FALLS — The Southwestern softball team missed an opportunity to climb the ICCAC standings with a weekend split at Ellsworth. Ellsworth sits one game in front of the sixth-place Spartans at 7-11 to Southwestern’s 6-14. A sweep would have pulled the Spartans into fifth place. Overall, SWCC fell to 1419 overall while Ellsworth improves to 8-15. Southwestern won the opener Saturday, 4-3, with a two-run home run by Emma Ferrin in a three-run seventhinning rally.

say Stumpff said. “We definitely had our chances. McIntosh pitched better than she has in a while. We’re seeing some progress from our pitchers, which is a good sign going into our final eight conference games. Emma Ferrin had a pretty good day at the plate with a couple singles, a double and home run.”

OSKALOOSA — The Southwestern Community College track team traveled to the William Penn Statesmen Relays Thursday. “We wanted to get a chance to compete before the Easter weekend and take advantage of the beautiful spring weather we have been having,” said Spartan head coach Bill Huntington. “A lot of our men and women are closing in on national qualifying marks and we want to get them into competitive meets to have a chance to hit the qualifying times.” Ben Friederichs led the Spartan men with a victory and new personal best in the

3,000 meter steeplechase. He also finished third in the 1,500 meter run with a time of 4:29.10. Aaron Ward and Gage Beers finished second and third respectively behind Friederichs in the steeplechase. In the sprints, Justin Martin finished fifth in the 100 meter dash, crossing the line in 11.06. Marquis Flowers also scored points for the Spartans, placing seventh.

HOG FACTORIES FOR ADAIR COUNTY?

Livestock Factories Impact County Residents Wherever We Live. Reasons for YOU to be Concerned

ENVIRONMENT Iowa Water Pollution Nutrients, including nitrates and bacteria from over-concentrated animal production, has caused Iowa to be ranked 49th in the nation for impaired waters. Who is 50th? Mississippi. In 2002, the Department of Natural Resources reported 238 impaired waterways in Iowa. By 2008, that number had grown to 542 impaired waterways and, today, that number stands at 630. As those numbers have grown, so have the costs for cities to make water safe for drinking. Who pays that cost? You, the consumer. Bill Stowe of the Des Moines Waterworks is outspoken about the difficulty and expense of removing nitrates from the Raccoon and Des Moines rivers to make drinking water safe. Hog numbers in our state have risen to well over 20-million head in the past 10 years with no sign of decreasing. Manure spills from CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) have doubled in that time. Manure spills into our lakes and rivers are often a result of operator negligence---pit overflows, transport leakage and sometimes plain negligence. USDA studies show that factory farmers often intentionally saturate manure on nearby fields to cut transportation costs, or simply because pits are full and they must be emptied. Only 18% apply manure at agronomic rates. Air Pollution Toxic gaseshydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and particulate matter—can severely impact the health of neighbors. Especially if those neighbors are very young, very old, or have an impaired respiratory system. University of Iowa research indicates increased levels of respiratory allergies and asthma in children living near CAFOs or attending nearby schools. Neighbors often spend days at a time indoors when nearby CAFO emissions are at high levels or the wind is from a certain direction, or if there is no wind and emissions settle in low areas in the surrounding terrain. Protection Iowa’s DNR is often underfunded and does not have staff to properly monitor and control pollution from CAFOs. Sincere and concerned DNR staff are hamstrung by weakened rules and political interference. Iowa has over 8,000 confined livestock operations and a DNR staff of less than 20 to see that regulations are properly enforced for the health of all Iowans. ECOMOMIC IMPACT Devalued Homes Homes within 2 miles of a CAFO can lose up to 50% of their resale value according to Midwest appraisal studies. Some owners cannot sell their homes at all! Older Adair Countians often depend on the sale of their homes or acreages to help fund a move to town or to a care facility. Young people and retirees may think twice about coming “back home.” Residences that lose value will pay fewer taxes into county coffers. And those eventually abandoned will result in lost county revenues. Tourists, visitors and campers visit local attractions, spending their dollars Local Businesses in county stores, businesses and other venues. Per capita income and main street retail sales rise. Those dollars circulate throughout our communities, as well as sales taxes going into county revenues. But research shows local tourism is impacted and poverty levels rise where CAFOs proliferate. Campers often can’t swim in polluted Iowa lakes, or eat the fish they catch. Keep in mind that - because ag taxes are based on productivity of the County Tax Revenue land - new building sites for CAFOs produce no added tax revenue for the county. Yet CAFO owners receive tax breaks for manure pits! Paradoxically, new commercial businesses will generate new commercial tax revenues for the county as do newly built homes. Public Roads/Bridges Manure tankers pulled by tractors do not have load limits as do trucks and trailers. So Adair County roads and bridges are subject to increased wear and tear with no new tax revenue to help pay for higher maintenance. In addition, if there is a serious manure spill on roads or in ditches, the county must clean it up---at taxpayer expense, of course. When all is taken into account, the Factory Farm industry creates many losses for citizens versus financial gain for a very few owners. Take a hard look at this “industry” and speak up for quality of life, for families, for farms, for neighborhoods and communities.
