Farmers hope to start a bulk of the 2014 planting season by May 1 n

April showers have left area farmers sidelined from getting an early jump on the 2014 planting season, but most farmers are welcoming the rain. “We are pretty close to typical for this time of year,” said state climatologist Harry Hillaker. “On the rainfall end of things, Creston is pretty close to normal, mostly because of the heavy rain that went through the area the weekend before last Hillaker (April 1314). Since then, it has rained more frequently, but it has been relatively light rains.” Hillaker said almost the entire state has experienced decent amounts of rainfall during April, which is a sharp contrast to the start of 2014. The temperature is also close to average, Hillaker said, staying within one degree of typical April weather. Wayde Ross, district conservationist for National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) in Creston, said the soils have not had a chance to warm up to ideal temperatures for planting corn. “With the colder weather to start the year and the ground temperatures as cool as they are, the only people that are really trying to hurry to get in the fields are farmers that have a lot of acres to plant,” Ross

said. The ideal soil temperature for corn is in the upper 50s or lower 60s. Ross said the current soil temperatures in the area are around 55 degrees. “We haven’t had very many warm days in a row to help bring the soil temperature up,” Ross said. “These rains have been cold, and the temperature is still getting pretty low at night, which keeps cooling off the soil.” Ross said the subsoil is still very dry, but the topsoil is “powdery,” making it difficult for farmers to set the pressure on their planters. “We are hoping this rain will help settle the topsoil down a bit,” Ross said. Weather forecast The forecast for today shows a slow moving system over the Creston News Advertiser coverage area. There is a chance

for isolated thunderstorms through the afternoon. “We have a slight break from the rain Friday and it looks like some pretty nice days to start the weekend,” Hillaker said. “It also looks like it will be fairly windy, which will dry things out in a hurry.” Wind gusts are expected to reach up to 30 mph over the weekend with temperatures reaching the 70s.
More rain is predicted Saturday night through Monday night as a slow moving storm system makes its way across the state. Hillaker said the exact path of the expected rain showers are not certain, but the chance for severe weather is pretty low. Please see RAIN, Page 2
Crestonians and their families are invited to join Creston Park and Recreation Department for the annual McKinley Park cleanup day Saturday. Those interested should meet 8 a.m. at the McKinley Park pool parking lot. “Just wear boots and old clothes,” said Mark Huff, Creston parks director. “We will provide the garbage bags and rubber gloves. This is something we do every year and the goal is to get rid of the pollutants before they make it to our waterway.” Huff said about 30 people participated in the event last year. Those already committed to attending this year’s cleanup include students from Creston High School and Southwestern Community College and High Lakes Outdoor Alliance.

OPINION Big prom weekend ahead
This looks to be the big prom weekend for many schools in the area. We will have coverage of the five going on in our area this Monday. We will have a Creston Prom section in next Tuesday’s newspaper. They are always fun events for the participants and their families. Back 40 years ago when I was in school, we didn’t have such elaborate affairs as they do today. The parade of vehicles and grand entrance is always a site to behold. I had the honor of working four proms when my kids were going to school. I always took a nap for a couple of hours before heading out to the late night event. I have more memories of my kids prom than my own. Of course, remembering back 40

years is a tough chore at my age! Give back It was good to see SWCC having “Pay it Forward” week. The staff and students did a lot of good things for the community and their “fellow human beings.” We always need volunteers and it’s never too young to start. Out of control I read where over 2,800 IRS personal that had been disciplined, received performance bonuses! They did everything from not pay
their taxes to actual fraud. Another great reason not to have faith in the IRS. Remember they are the group in charge of watching over Obamacare! New lake I see the folks over in Clarke County are getting closer to a new lake with the Fifth Judicial District of Iowa ruling that Clarke County Reservoir Commission can use eminent domain to continue on with the water project. The 816 acre lake has been a long time in the coming. The commission is looking to start buying land by the end of this summer. The lake project will cost around $38 million to complete. Rain It is good to see a little moisture coming down as of late. We can use
the rain to get things back to green after the long winter. It looks like the lawn mowers will be back in action this weekend as long as it doesn’t rain all weekend. The extra cold winter looks like it took a tole on many of the spruce and fir trees in the area. Lots of brown needles, but with a little TLC they should come back. YMCA This Saturday is Kids Day at the YMCA. Starting at 9 a.m. kids will have a full day of activities and learning available to them. The program is a good way to get kids involved in an active lifestyle. Wrigley Wrigley Field — the grand old ball field in Chicago — turns 100 today. It is still the home of the
“loveable losers” the Cubs. I have to believe that sometime in the next few years the Cubbies will return to the World Series. I would like to see a championship in my lifetime if possible! May Day “May Basket Day” is next Thursday. It always makes me think back as a kid of running around the neighborhood delivering May baskets to all the local friends. I think the tradition is pretty much a lost art these days. Hard to believe that we are up to May already. Time flies when you are getting older! Thought for the week: “If history repeats itself I should think we can expect the same thing again.” Terry Venables, Pro Soccer Player
Letter to the editor
Are you willing to take that risk? From Karon Finn Creston
Factory: the seat of some kind of production, from Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (Tenth Edition). Whether you call it CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation), factory farm, hog confinement, hog facility or a hog unit it still can be devastating to the water, soil, air and families that live near it. The counties do not receive more revenue from confinements. Confinements do pay taxes but according to a formula adopted by the state of Iowa ag taxes are based on productivity of the land — new building sites for CAFO’s produce no added tax revenue for the county. Any additional revenue is used to lower other agriculture in the county. An Iowa tax assessor stated to me that if a tornado came and blew down all the hog confinements the counties would receive more revenue as they wouldn’t have to give factory hog confinements’ tax breaks for their manure pits. A letter to the Creston News Advertiser from Rebecca J. Stanley states: “If anyone cares why the Iowa rural population is declining one only has to look to the massive confinement livestock operations. They are driving the small family farm out of business. If they aren’t driven out economically, the horrendous stench and health concerns push them out. Your air and water are being de-
stroyed. Meredith Wilson would be so ashamed of what you’ve done to Iowa.” These quotes sound current and represent the concerns of people today. This letter from Ms. Stanley was printed in the Creston News Advertiser on Tuesday, March 5, 2002. Do hog confinements affect the property value of nearby homes? Do our roads and bridges need help in rural counties? Is the only state rated worse than Iowa for the quality of its water the state of Mississippi? The answer to all these questions is yes. My brother, Mike, was in Vietnam for three months fighting on the battlefield. It took over 30 years before physicians decided he had Agent Orange poisoning. The unknown harm to our children and grandchildren won’t be known for years. Are you willing to take that risk? Without inspectors making unannounced inspections I don’t know if you are being responsible or not. Voluntary, self monitoring doesn’t work. Laws are legislated to curtail the criminals not to harm those who are responsible and protect their neighbors. The harsh lesson is that there are natural limits to what humans can do, and our society has arrogantly and blindly pushed right up against them. We don’t need to just learn to live with nature. We are nature. We need to learn that we cannot long abuse the natural environment without abusing ourselves.

Hawaiian Airlines couldn’t explain how a sixteen-year-old boy survived a flight HOLLYWOOD -- God bless America, and how’s everybody? The FDA mistakenly approved powdered alcohol you mix with water for a drink. During product testing, Charlie Sheen got his powders mixed up and snorted rum and dissolved an ounce of cocaine in water. He hasn’t gone to bed that sober since the Carter Administration. The Supreme Court ruled Monday that voters can eliminate affirmative action programs. For years, blacks, women and Hispanics had an edge. However the tide recently turned in favor of white males when they figured out that at any given moment they can discover they are gay. South Africa’s Olympic bladerunner Oscar Pistorius reportedly hired an acting instructor to prepare him for his murder trial testimony. He went through six. Every time the acting instructor mentioned the fourth wall Oscar fired six shots into it and killed the acting instructor. Hawaiian Airlines couldn’t explain how a sixteen-year-old boy survived a flight from San Jose to Maui in the jet’s wheel well. The kid’s resourceful. He was all bunched up in a ball with no food, but he escaped the passenger cabin and made it to the wheel well before take-off. China News Agency reports a man who collected five thousand bras while giving lectures at colleg-
Topical humor Argus Hamilton
es across China opened a museum of his bra collection in Beijing. At least it’s in the capital. In America you have to go to the Bill Clinton Presidential Library for an exhibit like this. Chelsea Clinton thrilled Bill and Hillary Clinton with the news on Friday that she and her husband are expecting a baby this fall. The family couldn’t be any happier. No one knows if it’s going to be a boy or a girl, but it’s already leading the polls in the 2056 presidential race. The Pentagon launched drone missile strikes in Yemen Friday, killing dozens of al-Qaeda fighters at a meeting there. Coincidentally a company is coming out with a Beer Drone that brings beer to attendees at music festivals. In a related story, everyone is now fine with drones. San Francisco had an Earth Day Fair Tuesday featuring lectures against cars, lectures from Indians for stealing their land, and a wealth re-distribution expo. The ozone layer is a serious issue for Democrats. President Obama just led three jumbo airliners to Asia while Joe Biden led two jumbo airliners to Ukraine in an obvious
attempt to fry the Russians this summer. Vladimir Putin said Friday he thinks Obama would rescue him if he were drowning. And Putin would rescue Obama if he were drowning. None of these guys over fifty understand the prestige you receive whenever you videotape something that gets a billion hits on YouTube. The State Department said satellite photos show Vladimir Putin has sent Russian troops into eastern Ukraine today. What’s stopping him? Putin has been given a promise by Obama that the US will not use military force against Russia and England can’t even get that. The White House sent a company of soldiers to Poland to train with a company of British soldiers in case the Russian Army invades Ukraine. That’s a thousand Allied soldiers. At this juncture it might be a good time to remind the White House that Captain America’s just a movie. Denver hosted a pot-plant competition last weekend called the Cannabis Cup which drew forty thousand stoners. It all got a little hazy. The next morning everyone went home with a clean conscience when they discovered that Girl Scout cookies don’t have Girl Scouts in them. © Copyright 2014 Argus Hamilton. All Rights Reserved.

New home innovations help consumers weather the storm (BPT) — Storms and wet weather not only impact our life’s activities they can also have a disastrous effect on our homes, both inside and out. New technologies and products that help homeowners manage the damaging effects of weather with reduced stress are in high demand. Included here are some of the latest innovations that can help homeowners weather the storm and mitigate or prevent the harmful effects of wet weather. Your sump pump is calling There are few things more devastating than water damage from flooding, which is a top worry of homeowners. Duane Johnson, president of WAYNE Water Systems, says his company helps protect homes with smarter systems that not only pump large volumes of water, but alert homeowners, in minutes, about rising water levels and power outages. For example, a microprocessorcontrolled system called Sump Minder monitors conditions in a basement and connects to a standard phone line. “The homeowner can program up to three different phone numbers and, when the system is activated, they will receive a phone call from the sump pump about conditions in the basement, no matter where they are,” says Johnson. The company is also introducing a system that sends texts to a smartphone about
Stay cooler cheaper this summer with a good ceiling fan. Size your fan to your room by consulting the package. Fans have blade spans 29”-54” and should be in the center of the room at least 7 ft. above the floor and at least 18” from the walls. The best blade and motor designs are most efficient and quieter. Look for models with the highest air flow efficiency, which is measured by cubic feet per minute per watt at each speed (CFM/watt). Ceiling fans keep people cool, not the space they’re in so turn it off when you’re not in the room. An Energy Star rated fan is 50% more efficient than a conventional fan. In the summer, the fan should move counter-clockwise. LISTED PROPERTIES 4/7/2014-4/21/2014 516 Scott • Fontanelle • $70,000 301 W. Kansas • Afton • $63,500 204 N. Oak • Orient • $33,000

water levels and power outages. Decks that endure Homeowners can also feel more secure when dark clouds are looming with a deck that has beauty and character, but performs far beyond wood. New “capped” composites feature decking with an extra layer of protection. “You want to make sure the board is completely encapsulated all the way around for the best protection,” says Carey Walley, vice president of marketing for TimberTech and AZEK Building Products. TimberTech introduced capped composites a few years ago and has continued to innovate with grain texture and
colors. “We have taken the technology to a level that makes it difficult to distinguish our boards from tropical hardwoods.” As an example, she notes TimberTech’s Legacy Collection has the look of rustic, hand-scraped indoor flooring taken to the outdoors. It’s one way to stay ahead of weather without sacrificing beauty. Fix ups after winter’s fury Take a peek under your front door jamb and you may see how harsh weather has deteriorated the wood or caused gaps that can raise your energy bills. “That is just one area of your home that may be compromised,” says Jason Ringling, director of marketing at Red
Devil, Inc., “which is why a tube of caulk can become your best friend.” For 143 years, Red Devil has earned its stripes with powerful, high quality sealants for dozens of uses around the home. “In addition to our full line of premium quality sealants, Red Devil has launched a new greener line of construction adhesives that can tackle repairs and gaps around gutters, the roofline, doors, windows and receptacles to prevent moisture from seeping into the home and causing further destruction,” says Ringling. Recycled pavers go with the flow For backyard areas that get too much water, it is
possible to create instant living space with recycled permeable pavers, which are great for patios or driveways. “When storm water is not adequately absorbed into the ground, it can create problems,” says David Justice, associate product manager for AZEK Pavers. Installing permeable pavers in an outdoor area can help manage the excess water while expanding your outdoor living space. “AZEK Permeable Pavers contain up to 95 percent recycled content from scrap tires and plastics with spacer lugs that allow water to pass through,” he says. The company also has Standard Landscape and Resurfacing Pavers for covering cracked

concrete patios or worn out decks. All pavers install up to three times faster than concrete or brick pavers on a self-aligning grid system. No matter what type of weather or wet conditions you are dealing with, there are solutions on the market today to help win the battle against Mother Nature and keep your home safe from damage, both inside and out.
Increase your home’s curb appeal and value with simple outdoor improvements Now you can brag you have the best-looking house on the street with these outdoor improvement tips (BPT) - First impressions happen at the curb. A good first impression raises the value of your home and pride in home ownership. If you are considering listing your home, it’s important that its curb appeal entices potential buyers to come inside and see more. A few improvements to the home’s exterior will go a long way in making it more inviting and desirable to buyers on the market. It’s also a great investment. Curb appeal can increase the value of a home as much as 5 percent, according to Realtor.com. Even if you’re not planning on selling your home anytime soon, simple outdoor improvements can make a dramatic difference. Consider the following tips to add curb appeal to your home without emptying your bank account. • Create a clean slate Dirt, grime, mildew and more collects on siding, fences, decks and sidewalks,
and if it’s not removed periodically it can permanently damage your home and decrease its value. A quick wash will return your home to its original color and provide your driveway and pathways with a fresh, new look. Pressure washers such as the Powerhorse pressure washers from Northern Tool + Equipment will make the task of removing buildup easier. • Build or install a new structural element - For a bigger transformation, consider building a deck, porch or walkway, or installing a decorative fence. All of these elements can make your yard more welcoming and create spaces outdoors. Before building, be sure to check local building codes, especially if you live in an association. • Install outdoor lighting - Show off all the work you’ve done in your yard and enhance your home’s appeal with outdoor lighting. Lights such as NPower barn lights from Kotula’s can be used to highlight different architectural and
landscaping features such as your front door, steps or bushes. You can also use lights to illuminate a walkway, driveway or front entryway to make your home more inviting and safe. •Keep your lawn and gar-
dens well maintained - A well-kept yard not only adds instant curb appeal but also dramatically changes the overall look of your home. During the growing season, it’s important to nourish and trim your trees, shrubs and
lawn for optimal growth. Creating a garden can also create a colorful appeal and set your home apart. Gardening tools such as a mini cultivator make it easy to control weeds, work with fertilizer and mix soil to
keep your garden looking its best. Investing in all of these outdoor improvements will catch the eye of both envious neighbors and potential homebuyers.

Obama says Russia not abiding by agreement in Ukraine Pro-Russia militias continue to occupy buildings, destabilizing embattled Ukraine and sparking fear of military clashes ■
WASHINGTON (MCT) — President Barack Obama says Russia is not yet holding up its side of an agreement to de-escalate tension in Ukraine, and he suggested that the U.S. and its allies are prepared to hit Moscow with additional sanctions in coming days. “So far at least, we’ve seen them not abide by the spirit or the letter of the agreement in Geneva,” Obama told reporters at a news conference in Tokyo on Thursday, the first full day of a four-country tour through Asia. Obama noted pro-Russia militias continued to occupy buildings, destabilizing embattled eastern Ukraine and sparking fear of military clashes over control of the region. As part of the agreement negotiated last week, Russia said it would publicly urge such forces to stand down. Moscow also promised to allow international monitors in Ukraine and express support for elections slated for next month. Holding to the agreement “wouldn’t require a radical shift” for Moscow, Obama contended. “Do I think they’re going to do that? So far the evidence doesn’t make me hopeful.”

Obama echoed comment from other U.S. officials this week, as the Geneva agreement appeared to do little to defuse the tension. On Wednesday, Ukrainian government troops claimed to have ousted pro-Russia gunmen from an eastern town, a claim disputed by a leader of the militants. The Kremlin, which the U.S. accuses of supporting the militias, warned that the government’s operations could spark retaliation. Obama told reporters that the U.S. had anticipated the failure of the agreement and prepared
another round of economic sanctions to try to persuade Russia to rethink its posture. “We have been preparing for the prospect that we’re going to have to engage in further sanctions. Those are teed up,” Obama said. He added that the U.S. was working through technical details and working with other nations. The White House and European Union have been closely coordinating the announcements of previous sanctions. The new penalties are likely to come soon, Obama said.
“This is a matter of days and not weeks,” he said. —————— ©2014 Tribune Co. Visit Tribune Co. at www.latimes.com Distributed by MCT Information Services

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.

Time for lawn care Dear Readers: Spring is here, and many homeowners are beginning to get outside to start working on the LAWN. Here are some hints to get the beautiful lawn you hope to have: • If you didn’t aerate the lawn in the fall, do so now. Remove all dead leaves and grass while pulling out any weeds. Look for twigs and other debris that may have accumulated during the winter. • Use a mulching lawn mower if you can, and mow only 1/3 off the top of the grass at a time. Don’t scalp the yard! • When you do water the lawn, the best time is in the morning. Of course, where you live and what the climate is will determine how often to water. — Heloise P.S.: Here in San Antonio, where I live, we are under severe water restrictions because of the horrible drought. So for us, not having a “green” lawn is not that big of a deal.

Hints from Heloise a jumble of tangled cords, this tip may be helpful. Use a white-ink felt-tip pen, and as soon as a device comes into the house, write directly on its black plastic power supply what device it belongs to. Then put each one in a small zip plastic bag. It doesn’t hurt to label each bag, too. From then on, you will know what each does, and the tangle of cords should be vanquished. — B.A.F. in San Antonio STAYING ON BUDGET Dear Heloise: Grocery shopping is a major part of my family’s budget. And as other mothers know, grocery shopping with kids is hard. One way I try to cut down on expenses is to go grocery shopping without the kids, if I can. I love them, but boy, they can put things in the basket that I’m not even aware of! — A Reader in Pennsylvania Dear Reader: Isn’t it amazing how many “goodies” are at eye level for little ones? — Heloise

Or if we have a picnic, we can unclip it from the stroller and prop it up to blow on us while we eat. — Dana in New Mexico SHOWER CAP OVER SEAT Dear Heloise: I ride a bike instead of driving places.

Taking the Stage Liam Ray III
Inside the walls of Creston High School, there is the theater, where many come to enjoy performances that take place on the illuminated stage. Ask any teacher or student if they feel that the theater is vital to the school and the answer will always be the same: “Absolutely!” “Months out of the school year are dedicated to activities,” says Rachel Foth, the drama department administrator, “Such as the all-school play, musical, one-act plays, band and vocal performances which all take place in the theater.” Not only does the high school get major use out of it, but SWCC comes in and uses it for various presentations or visits. FFA also requires it for their banquet, and especially Crest Area Theatre, who just this past summer, rented it out to put on their production of the musical, “Oliver.” These events bring joy not only to the students and faculty but to our community. Hundreds of people attend these and utilize the space and technology that comes with the auditorium. And none of it could happen without the theater. I have been working in theaters since 2006, doing every possible job under the sun. From tech work, to acting, to even directing now, theatre has been a big part of my life. I usually have a hand in any production that takes place and love helping in any case. Which is why the high school’s theater and the condition is of concern. There are various problems it is beginning to show its age, and some potential hazards. To begin, the high school theater was built around the same time as the rest of the school from 1989 to 1990.

High school senior and Winterguard member, Taylor Gibson stated, “We get splinters and there are nails sticking up from the floor…we get cuts and scrapes.” Both Phil Wardenburg and Bill Mullin, faculty at Creston High School, estimated that a new stage floor would cost, “about $2,000 to $3,000” and Wardenburg elaborated that, “it could be done by two people who know what they’re doing and

Coach touts Briley for All-American status By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer • email@example.com
Wrigley turns 100 CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first game at Wrigley Field in the most appropriate way: with a gut-wrenching loss. They entered the ninth inning with a three-run lead. They were one out from victory. And then they collapsed. After an error by shortstop Starlin Castro, the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied for five runs in the ninth to beat the Cubs 7-5 Wednesday. “That one finished not like we would have wanted, obviously,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. “It seemed like the inning kept opening up, and we weren’t able to end up in the end putting a stop to it.” Martin Prado hit a two-run single off Pedro Strop (0-2), Miguel Montero had a tying single against James Russell and Aaron Hill followed with a two-run triple off Justin Grimm. The beloved ballpark, the second-oldest in the major leagues behind 102-year-old Fenway Park in Boston, opened on April 23, 1914, when the Federal League’s Chicago Federals beat the Kansas City Packers 9-1. Fans sang “Happy Birthday” in the middle of the fifth inning Wednesday. The Cubs wore Federals’ uniforms, and the Diamondbacks wore Kansas City Packers’ threads. The Cubs moved into the Friendly Confines in 1916, after the Federal League folded, and have established a tradition of beloved losers. The Cubs’ only World Series titles came in 1907 and `08, when they played at the West Side Grounds, and they haven’t even reached the World Series since 1945.
Pineda ejected BOSTON — New York Yankees righthander Michael Pineda admitted to using pine tar on the baseball during the second inning of Wednesday’s 5-1 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park, but said he did it not to cheat, rather to insure he did not hit anyone with an errant pitch. “It was a really cold night and in the first inning I (couldn’t) feel the ball,” Pineda said. “I don’t want to like hit anybody so I decided to use it.” Pineda was ejected by home plate umpire and crew chief Gerry Davis after Red Sox manager John Farrell came out to complain about the shiny blotch on the right side of Pineda’s neck, which was clearly visible to television cameras broadcasting the game. “I fully respect that on a cold night, you’re trying to get a grip, but when it’s that obvious something has got to be said,” Farrell said. Using a foreign substance on the baseball is a violation of Major League Baseball rule 8.02. According to an MLB spokesman, there is no mandatory suspension for the infraction at the major league level.
DMACC softball coach Bob Ligouri doesn’t mince his words when describing his pint-sized shortstop who packs a big wallop. “If Katlin Briley doesn’t leave DMACC as a firstteam All-American, it will be a travesty,” Ligouri said. “She’s done everything we’ve asked of her. She’s hit over .400 in the leadoff position, she’s hit with power and she plays great defense. She should leave DMACC as a twotime first-team all-region player, and without question, we think she should be the offensive player of the year in the region.” Briley had a successful return home on a blustery day for softball Wednesday afternoon. The former Creston all-stater helped the Bears sweep Southwestern, 14-8 and 12-0 in five innings. Briley was 2-of-4 with two stolen bases and an RBI in the opener, in which I o w a S t a t e Briley transfer Riley Fisher of Des Moines East shut down the Spartans until she was relieved by freshman Cailey Schlenker. SWCC scored two runs in the fifth and five more in the sixth after Fisher was taken out.
Sophomore Alyson Netty of Waterloo handcuffed the Spartans in a one-hit shutout in game two, as Brooke Wolf’s double to lead off the second inning broke up the no-hitter. In that game, Briley was hitless with a walk and stolen base. “I didn’t have a great day, but our team did,” Briley said. “These last games should get us the (regional) second seed and I think we have a good chance of going to nationals if we keep hitting.” The soft-spoken 5-foot2 infielder, who still dons the large, well-worn fielder’s glove she started using as a high school freshman, is not your prototypical power hitter. But that’s what she’s become this season while still operating as a “slap” hitter from the lefthanded batter’s box. Briley has three home runs, including one against SWCC in the first meeting and another three-run shot to take the lead over Iowa Central, which began Wednesday in a secondplace tie in the ICCAC with the Bears. “You see the great slappers hit like that, and Katlin is doing it,” Ligouri said. “You turn on your TV and watch the best teams from the SEC or the Big 12, and some of those lefties are hitting like that. Katlin has just worked really hard.” Briley said a year of college softball has helped her mature in her game. “I changed my technique

Emergency relief role for Frain at ISU By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer • firstname.lastname@example.org
AMES — Madison Frain is finding that the hitting zone of a Division I softball player can be an unforgiving place for even the slightest mistake. Frain was within an out of closing out a University of South Dakota victory Tuesday in the opener of a doubleheader at Iowa State, after relieving starter Rachel Cue, who took a batted ball to the side of the chin to start the fourth inning. That fourth inning ended with South Dakota still holding a 4-1 lead, and the
Coyotes were still in front 5-3 as late as two outs and one on base against Frain, the former Creston all-state lefthander, in the bottom of the seventh. That’s when ISU catcher Rachael Hartman blasted a two-run homer between the 200 and 220-foot signs in left and center to send the game into extra innings tied at 5-5. “It was just a flat pitch,” Frain said. “It was a screwball that didn’t spin as much as it should have, and it just hung over the plate too long. I knew it right away.” ISU put away the game in the eighth. Maddie Reese led off with a single and moved to second on a sacri-
fice bunt. Two batters later, Lexi Slater made the gamewinning hit past the shortstop to bring Reese home for the 6-5 victory. Frain, who’s been working as the No. 2 starter behind the freshman Cue from California, is adjusting to the caliber of hitters she’s facing in Division I softball. She has a 9-9 record and 3.51 ERA along with 113 hits allowed, 61 strikeouts and 51 walks in 93.2 innings pitched. “It’s so different from high school,” Frain said. “At

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers
HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ
A couple questions we had to ask — ourselves
Getty Images/JARED C. TILTON
Here’s a hunch: This car will win a race. Richmond or Talladega. Which track do you like best? GODSPEAK: Every time I went to Talladega, I got goose bumps. Guess I’m a ’Dega man. KEN’S CALL: Richmond is a purer race, Talladega is more edge-of-seat. I’m a Richmond guy.
When does Jimmie Johnson start getting nervous about finally winning a race? GODSPEAK: JJ should have at least three wins by now, but circumstances have denied him. He’ll get his fair share. KEN’S CALL: If he hasn’t won by the next time NASCAR returns to Richmond, that should do.

this one wonderful exception from Aric Almirola, who drives the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford. “I had a friend in high school that had a Cobra Mustang,” Almirola said. “I had an old, ratty pickup truck, and he let me drive that Mustang. He let me drive his Cobra and we put black marks around the street of our high school everywhere. I mean everywhere. That was a lot of fun.”
YOU ARE RIGHT If you think Cup racing is better this year than 2013, you are statistically right. Here are some quick comparisons. Leaders per race: An average of 12 compared with 8.6 last season. Lead changes per race: 25.6 this year, 17.4 in 2013. Total greenflag passes: 29,541 in 2014, just 23,178 in 2013. Green-flag passes for the lead: 346 this year compared with 181 last season.

Look at Mr. Social Media. Junior has taken to Twitter in a big way, but knows when to pull the throttle back.
Momentum is only as strong as your next set of tires. Financially, it’s only as strong as the next check in the mail. The latest example comes courtesy of Swan Racing, which would rather not be the current Exhibit A. The two-car team was riding high in February when both drivers — Cole Whitt and Parker Kligerman — made the Daytona 500. Now: Layoffs and uncertainty. You can’t compete without money, and you rarely attract money unless you run well. Tough bind.
What in the world are the Cynopsis Awards? Not sure, but Brian France owns one. France received the “Vision Award” at last week’s Cynopsis Sports Awards in New York City. Rick Hendrick was there to do the presenting and tell everyone: “With all the stakeholders involved in our sport, it takes a leader who is willing to stand tall. Brian has revolutionized the sport of NASCAR.”
No, I think it’s based on technology. The press release indicates the award “recognizes the executive of the year from a sports league or organization who has demonstrated innovation and transformed an industry.” In other words, if some teams are still struggling to compete financially, don’t blame the Boys in I.T.
Ford asked several of its drivers to recall their favorite memory in a Mustang, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary of production this year. Most of the responses were politically correct, with
297 296 278 271 270 269 246 245 236 235 227 224 224 223 223 219 216 206 202 195 188 186 186 184 178 164 150 148 143 123 118 107 105 105 100 90 63 54 51 40 29 27 24
What happened to momentum in auto racing?
So it’s based on height?
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 14. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 22. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 33. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. 41. 42. 43.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. got on the Twitter bandwagon after winning his second Daytona 500 in February. He had an account set up years ago but activated @DaleJr on Twitter after that huge victory. But he has not become addicted to social media, like many others in the sport. Earnhardt pops in and out, now and then, here and there. Earnhardt did say he took a peek after his fiery wreck at Texas Motor Speedway a few weeks back. “I guess Twitter can be a help in a situation like that,” Earnhardt said. “My fans certainly have my back and tell you to ‘brush it off, don’t worry about it.’ I’m sure there are some people on there saying the opposite, but I didn’t see many of those or any of those.” Earnhardt, who is introspective and pragmatic, said Twitter, like most anything in life, has a “positive and a negative” to it. “I didn’t really spend a lot of time on Twitter (after Texas) because we were working at Michigan,” Earnhardt said. “We had some things to do. Twitter is a bit of a playground, and I don’t want to horse around if we are not doing good. “I don’t want to be on there goofing off and making light of the situation because it was a frustrating mistake. It was something I don’t take very lightly. Just being able to get back in the car and test at Michigan was a big help for me to get past it and to get focused on the next race.” So the Twitter takeaway is this: If Earnhardt is racing well, you might see him tweet a bit. If he’s having a bad weekend, NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver is likely off the grid.

FEUD OF THE WEEK
Kurt Busch vs. Clint Bowyer: It’s been two weeks, but if you recall, Bowyer knocked Busch out of the race at Texas and created some major ill will between the drivers. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “The question is: Has Busch cooled down after an off weekend, or has he been plotting his revenge for Richmond?”

Carl Edwards on the emotions of flipping out after a win

The NASCAR media last saw Carl Edwards during the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. In the days leading up to the race, Edwards talked about the thrill of visiting Victory Lane. Edwards has 22 career Sprint Cup Series triumphs since 2005.
much work and that Victory Lane is what it is all about.”
Is the back flOil ip going Change to continue? with any Regular “I plan on continuing the back flip. I wasn’t so sure at
Bristol and I don’t practice it very often. When we win a race I get about 100 yards past the finish line and start thinking about if I should do it. When I get out of the car and see how pumped the crowd is — and my guys — it makes it easy to do a back flip.”
think Jack is still mad about me tearing up that race car. Other than that, I think anything that happens in Victory Lane is OK.” After you cross the checkered, is it all pure emotion? “I think every race is different, and for me it has changed over time. It used to be surreal and I couldn’t even believe I had won the race, and I still have to ask (spotter) Jason Hedlesky if this is really over. There is always a little bit of that, and as time has gone on, I feel a little bit differently about the wins. It feels more satisfying for my guys and for all my sponsors and for everybody that puts all the work in. Every race is different, though. There are some races I can’t remember anything other than the checkered flag, and that’s about it, because it is so intense.”

Do you put any thought into what you are going to do when you climb out of the car in Victory Lane? “Victory Lane is so much fun. It is just cool. The hard part about Victory Lane is when you are sitting in the car Have you ever had a bad experience in Victory Lane? and they tell you to wait and you can’t get out yet but you “I have never had a bad experience in Victory Lane, but I want to jump out and celebrate with the crew and there is don’t know if you remember that All-Star race when I tore all this buildup and finally the TV folks say it is OK to get that car up after we won. That wasn’t too cool. I didn’t feel out of the car. It is so cool when you turn and look and *EXCLUDES DUAL WHEEL VEHICLES EXPIRES 5/31/2014 too good about that.

this level, they hit every mistake hard.” Frain said it was stressful to quickly warm up in the fourth inning when Frain
Cue was injured. Originally, she was projected to start the second game. “I had about five minutes to warm up when she was laying on the ground,” Frain said, “but I was worried about her, too! It was pretty nerve-wracking, but I think I was ready.” South Dakota took the nightcap 12-3 as freshman
Kayla Fields picked up her second win in just her third start of the season. “That was a big step for Kayla,” Frain said. Iowa State (21-23) led the second game 2-0 through three innings. But the Coyote offense exploded for 12 runs during the next four innings, including a three-run homer
by first baseman Yvon Minogue and a two-run shot by Morgan Hancock. The series with Iowa State marked the final non-conference games of the regular season for South Dakota (25-17). The Coyotes return to action Friday for a doubleheader against South Dakota State in Brookings.
