“Hell and Mr. Fudge”

Panther girls win three events at Carroll

According to a 2008 survey, nearly 60% of Americans think there is a hell where “sinners” suffer eternal torment. Theologians are increasingly divided over the issue. “Hell and Mr. Fudge” is a true story of one man’s need to know the truth.

UCDA house on Elm Street lists at $109K By KYLE WILSON

CNA managing editor

A listing price for the house at 507 S. Elm Street in Creston — being constructed by Union County Development Association (UCDA) and Southwestern Community College — was announced last week. Wayne Pantini, executive director of Pantini UCDA, said the 982-square-foot home lists at $109,195. The house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large laundry room

on the first floor. “I’m planning a realtor’s open house for May 23,” Pantini said. “The house will be completely done by that date and ready to show.” Pantini said the house has an unfinished basement, but an egress window has been installed to allow the buyer to add a third bedroom in the future, if desired. There is no garage. Pantini said nine Creston realtors are participating in the sale of this home. They include Monday Realty, Ellis-Poore Realty, Callahan Realty, Stewart Realty, R Realty, Paul Eckhoff Realty, Green Valley Realty, Hometown Realty

Senators approve limited cannabis oil access DES MOINES (MCT) — The Iowa Senate on Thursday approved a narrow opening for Iowa parents with severely epileptic children to treat them with cannabis oil. After emotional debate, senators voted 3612 to pass a bill that legalizes the limited use of cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive component of marijuana that backers say possesses a wide range of therapeutic benefits. Sen. Bill Dotzler, D-Waterloo, said the legislation is an effort to give “hope and help” to parents who have spent hours lobbying legislators to allow them access the oil for their children. “We have an opportunity to do something here today that’s pretty special, and I want to thank the mothers for coming before us and having the courage to stand up when people were saying no. This is unacceptable. We need to move forward,” Dotzler said. Waterloo mother Sarah Amundson knows the debate has only moved this far because of mothers like her who have shown lawmakers the conversation isn’t about skirting the law but about helping suffering kids. While she has not been as active as other mothers lobbying at the Capitol, Amundson has been following the debate closely and is cautiously optimistic after the Senate’s vote. “I believe there’s a better chance today than even six months ago,” Amundson said. “My daughter is not at the point where I feel like she needs it right now, (but) it’d be wonderful to know that would be an option in the future.” Amundson’s 6-year-old daughter suffers from a rare chromosomal disorder called isodicentric chromosome 15 syndrome, or idic(15), which can cause seizures. Amundson said her daughter’s symptoms are currently controlled with medication, but seizures can increase as she ages. Amundson also says she will believe it’s a reality when Gov. Terry Branstad signs the bill into law. “The fact that it’s come this far from a few months ago, that’s huge,” Amundson adds. Branstad said he has talked with the governor

Murray’s new Casey’s draws a big crowd for opening day By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor

MURRAY — The doughnuts are stocked on the shelves. The gas pumps are ready to be used. The pizza is piping in the oven. The new Casey’s General Store in Murray is open for business. A store opening reception was held Thursday at the Casey’s, which is located directly south of the school in Murray. Many people and officials from Murray were there, as well as former Democratic Congressman Leonard Boswell and Robert J. Myers, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Casey’s General Stores. “It’s a great thing for the community just to have a convenience store, to have a Casey’s here,” said Nik Werner, former mayor of Murray. “ ... The amenities they provide is something the city really needed. The citizens really

wanted it, and it’s just a huge boost for the city of Murray.” During Werner’s term as mayor, he Werner was instrumental in starting the process of Murray acquiring a Casey’s store. What does it offer? The store is also bringing approximately 20 new jobs to the community. As for Casey’s amenities, it’s more than just the gas pumps outside of the store. The interior of the store offers customers snacks, drinks, doughnuts, pizza, a deli, soft serve ice cream and frozen slushy drinks. It had previously been reported the store would not have a deli and just serve pizza. However, during the opening, a comment was made that if Casey’s General Stores opens a new convenience

store, it’s not styled after an old model. The new store is designed to be the most up-todate version of the store possible. During Myers’ opening ceremony speech, he discussed what drew Casey’s General Stores to Murray. He said one reason was the commu-

nity’s support of the school district. This included the city approving bond issue last year to build an addition onto the school. Community appreciation Before Myers finished his

of Utah, who recently joined Alabama and Wisconsin in approving similar measures, and his staff worked with lawmakers “to make sure that it is very limited and very focused on children with epilepsy.” That said, however, the governor will reserve judgment until he’s seen the bill in its final form if it reaches his desk. “I met with the parents, and I do have empathy for the families, but I have concerns,” he added.

Both Dotzler and Sen. Jeff Danielson, D-Waterloo, talked about the families they’ve met in the Cedar Valley who would be impacted by the bill before they cast votes in favor of the legislation. The measure now goes to the Iowa House for consideration.

“I have a fondness for Murray ... and I enjoyed coming to Murray. The school spirit, the Mustangs,” Boswell said. “ ... It’s wonderful. It was something that was needed. It’ll provide a service that was needed for the community. We need gas. We need essentials, convenience. It’s a good thing.”

UNI makes green college list CEDAR FALLS (MCT) — The University of Northern Iowa has made the Princeton Review’s list of the most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S. and Canada. UNI was one of 322 Green Colleges identified this week by the organization, a test preparation and college admission services company, as committed to sustainability. UNI’s rating of 95 out of 99 was the highest score of any school in Iowa, with the next highest at 89. The company tallied its scores based on the colleges’ responses to an institutional survey, compiled from a range of data including the percentage of food expenditures that goes toward local, organic or otherwise environmentally preferable food. Iowa State University and the University of Iowa also

made the list. UNI’s Office of Sustainability is contributing a slew of events for Earth Week this week, including: A bike ride with the Cedar Valley Cyclists on Cedar Falls trails at 6 p.m. Wednesday, starting and ending at Mulligan’s on 18th Street. Helmets are required and free T-shirts will be provided to participants who register at Earth Week concludes Thursday with a film screening of “In Organics We Trust” at 11 a.m. in the Center for Energy and Environmental Education, room 115. It explores what it means for products to be certified organic. —————— ©2014 Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (Waterloo, Iowa) Distributed by MCT Information Services

Proposed rail abandonment spurs prospects for rec trail The 10.75-mile stretch is part of a larger vision to connect Marion, Jasper and Polk counties with a paved trail

(MCT) — It’s a grand vision, interconnecting all of central Iowa by a recreational bike trail system. Former U.S. Rep. Neal Smith, whose namesake wildlife refuge is located south of Prairie City, envisioned a trail system extending from Pella to Fort Madison. But he knew it would take small steps to get there. Last month, another one of those small steps began to look possible. March 5, the Iowa Interstate Railroad filed a memo with the federal Surface Transportation Board stating it plans to abandon the rail corridor extending from Highway F62 W southeast of Prairie City through Jasper County to Highway S27 near Mitchellville. This 10.75-mile stretch, dubbed by IAIS as the “Prairie City Segment,” is part of a larger vision to connect Marion, Jasper and Polk counties with a paved recreational trail system. If abandoned as proposed, county and local leaders could begin the process of designating it a greenway, Prairie City City Administrator Manny Toribio said. “For many years there has been discussion as to what would happen if that rail line ever was abandoned and we had the opportunity to put in a trail,” he said. “We’ve thought that a multi-use trail would be good for the visibility of our community.” According to its memo, the IAIS expects to file its official petition for abandonment by the end of April. In August, Toribio held an initial Steering Committee meeting to begin preliminary plans on the “Rails to Trails” process. Leaders in the business

community, along with county conservation and city officials, attended the meeting. Andrea Chase is the trails coordinator for the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation. Her organization is involved in the petitioning and research that goes into turning a rail corridor into a recreational trail. After a railway is discontinued by the a railroad company, the INHF also can petition the transportation board to preserve the rail path with “rail banking.” Chase explained that once a discontinued segment is banked, it’s reserved solely for transportation use. If the corridor is simply abandoned, any land leased or acquired through condemnation by a rail company would go back to its original deedholder. In many cases, this can require research going back more than a century. Rail banking the system will allow local jurisdictions the opportunity to use it for alternative transportation purposes, such as walking or biking. It also allows the railroad company the option to reopen that track in the future if it ever deems it necessary. But Chase stressed that rail re-institution has never happened in Iowa due to rail banking. Chase said the INHF will assist city leaders with their experience in the railbanking process. But she also stressed it is a local effort and her organization is there to “make sure they hit all the marks along the way.” “I’ve worked at the foundation for eight years now, and ever since I came on board the city administrators and community leaders have been asking me when (this segment) was going to be abandoned,” Chase said. “I feel like this has been a long time coming. The communities have been wanting it for so long.” Jasper County Conservation Director Kari Van Zante has also been work-

Trestle” recreational trail extends from it’s southern most point in Ankeny through Slater, Madrid and Woodward. The project took community leaders eight years to complete from concept to final touches. Chase said this is “lightening speed” for a project of that size. But Chase gave examples of economic development associated with the trail completion. A cafe in Woodward doubled its staff after the Trestle Trail began to pick up traffic, and a bed and breakfast and a bike shop opened in Slater. “Looking at the end “We’ve thought product of the High Trestle that a multiTrail, it brings an attraction and a quality of life benefit use trail would to these small rural towns,” be good for the she said.

Church has a sticky situation Dear Heloise: We have large, doormat-styled rugs at the inside doors of our church for folks to clean their feet as they enter the church. With all the traffic, the rug mats, once secured by TWO-WAY TAPE, have moved, leaving a sticky substance on the church rug. How can we remove the sticky tape residue without ruining the rug? — Janis McQuade, Elkin, N.C. What a sticky situation! First thing to do is to try to gently scrape off the stuff with a dull knife or spoon. Then blot the area with dry-cleaning solvent (which you can buy at most grocery stores). Blot the area until the dry-cleaning solvent is absorbed, and try to remove the adhesive. The next step is to mix a solution of 2 cups warm water, 1 tablespoon liquid dishwashing soap and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Again using a clean cloth, blot the residue area with the solution. You probably will have to repeat this step several times. — Heloise SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 782795000 Fax: 1-210-HELOISE Email: Heloise@Heloise.

This could be about making money on the side or perhaps getting a different job. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel sympathetic toward others today. You even might feel zoned into their headspace, almost as if you can read their minds. (This is interesting.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Mysterious subjects interest you today, especially UFOs, ghosts or paranormal activities. You might not believe in this, but you’re a bit intrigued. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Someone might need to cry on your shoulder today, or perhaps you want to confide in someone else. Either way, private, confidential conversations will take place between you and someone else. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Someone in a position of authority might inspire you today. You might wish that you could be like him or her. Be careful, because you probably have Vaseline on your lens.

Club news GFWC Bancroft History Assembly

Assembly met April 7 at the community room of the Creston Plaza Apartments. President Peg Anderson called the meeting to order as the 11 members paid honor to American flag with the Pledge of Allegiance. The inspirational thought was from Thomas Jefferson: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong to take everything you have.” The thought from the yearbook was: “Discover the beauty of simple random acts of kindness.” Roll call was answered by interesting stories about the pets members had down through the years. Since there was no meeting held in March, minutes from February were read by the recording secretary Marisue Lewis. The treasurer’s report was given by Avis Hainline. Joan Chubick reported on having received acknowledgement of the money Bancroft had given for the SWCC scholarship. A sign-up sheet was passed for the May brunch to be held at the home of Kay Ritter. The nominating committee composed of Martha Musmaker and Joann Nurnberg presented a slate of names for officers for the new year. An election was held and the new officers are as follows: Joann Nurnberg (president), Marisue Lewis (vice president), Sandy Oswald (secretary), Avis Hainline (treasurer), Beth Perry (corresponding secretary) and Peg Anderson (parliamentarian). Avis Hainline and Kay Raymond are historians. The program committee will be Leone Purdum, Marilyn Ralls and Kay Raymond. Sandy Oswald volunteered to buy gas and food cards for the crisis intervention and advocacy center to be used in Creston, using the money collected that day. It was also decided that should be the project for May. The program was given by Sandy Oswald on the life of Pearl Buck. A thank you note was read from Joan Chubick. A flyer was handed out regarding the library garden walk on June 14. The next meeting will be May 5 with Martha Musmaker giving the program. The programs committee will be hostess. The business meeting concluded with the club collect. Spring refreshments were served by the hostess, Marisue Lewis.

Johnson passed out correspondence and literature to share with club members. Those bringing recipes for the cookbook submitted them to Shirley Wallace, who is doing the artwork for the book. It was decided a “flower show blitz” will be held the first part of July to remind people to show their talents at the Union County flower show, which will be held July 21. The date of the blitz will be decided upon at the June club tour. AFGC ad in the Union County Fair Book will stay as is for another year. Members voted by secret ballot on the recipient of the “Circle of Roses” award. FGCI State annual flower show and meeting will be June 19-20 at Sheraton Hotel in Iowa City.

6 steps to control your blood pressure (BPT) — A routine doctor’s appointment often involves a health professional checking your blood pressure. The screening is not painful or stressful and typically takes less than a minute to measure. However, the results of this simple test may identify a condition that, when managed, could help reduce your chances for stroke or heart attack. High blood pressure, often referred to as the “silent killer,” does not have any symptoms, but can cause serious damage to arteries, leading to heart disease and stroke. Nearly one in three adults in the United States has high blood pressure, and because there are no symptoms, many remain unaware of the condition for years, according to the American Medical Group Foundation (AMGF). A blood pressure screening in a doctor’s office can determine if you have healthy or high blood pressure. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other health professionals can help patients understand the risk factors for high blood pressure and

its health problems, and recommend lifestyle modifications and/or medicines to control the disease. The Measure Up/Pressure Down national high blood pressure campaign is an initiative of AMGF to encourage adults to get in control by using lifestyle changes, including: 1. Know your numbers Understanding what blood pressure is and what your numbers are is an important first step. At its simplest, blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood. Work with your health care team to determine your individual blood pressure goals and treatment plan if your numbers are too high. 2. Eat right - A diet with excessive sodium (salt) may cause a person to retain fluid, which can lead to higher blood pressure. Potassium can help the body balance this sodium. Foods high in potassium include bananas, plain baked potatoes, avocados and cooked white beans. 3. Stay active - On aver-

age, people who are more active tend to have lower heart rates, which means the heart does less work each time it contracts, reducing the pressure on arteries. Adults should be active at least 30 minutes each day. 4. Reduce stress - Many Americans respond to stressful situations by eating more, getting less exercise, drinking or smoking. Plus, a stressful situation can also increase blood pressure for a short period of time. Try

to reduce the occurrence of these situations and look for healthy ways - like meditation or walking - to help you deal with stress. 5. Set alcohol limits and eliminate tobacco - Over time, consuming a high amount of alcohol can damage the heart. Recommendations are for women to limit themselves to one drink a day and for men to two drinks to avoid seeing an increase in blood pressure. Tobacco use and secondhand smoke can imme-

diately raise blood pressure levels and cause damage to the lining of arteries. If you’re interested in quitting your tobacco use, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW. 6. Take medication Your doctor may recommend taking a blood pressure medication to keep levels steady. Be sure to follow the directions provided for taking the medications to ensure you’re getting the most benefit from them. With Measure Up/Pressure Down, Americans are

encouraged to measure, monitor and maintain their blood pressure levels to stay in control of this health condition. If you don’t know your blood pressure levels and want more information to determine if you might be at risk for high blood pressure, visit Or learn more about blood pressure at or on Twitter at www.twitter. com/MUPDcampaign.

Electric migraine therapy Jay Silverheels portrayed Tonto in TV’s “The Lone Ranger” wearing a simple headband across his forehead. Johnny Depp amped up the character’s costume and topped off his movieversion headband with a dead crow. Critics said the affectation pained them greatly. But the latest headband to hit the U.S. market — it’s been available in Canada and Europe for some time — may bring much-needed pain relief to the more than 30 million folks who contend with migraine headaches. This battery-powered device, newly approved by the Food and Drug Administration, is designed to prevent migraine attacks, not treat them once they’ve started. It’s worn around the head like Silverheels’ headband, and during a daily 20-minute session, an electrode delivers programmed electrical impulses to branches of the trigeminal nerve that’s located in the center of the forehead, above the eyes. This three-part nerve is thought to play a role in triggering migraine and in transmitting the pain sensations it causes. Studies show that when used over several months, the headband cuts the number of headache days in half (that’s a relief) and significantly reduces the use of migraine-attack medication. And just as important: Side effects from this novel migraine therapy are rare and minimal. Many migraine suffers can’t stomach potent migraine prevention and treatment medications, which can trigger burning or prickling sensations in hands and feet, chest pain, loss of appetite, abdominal

pain, dizziness, nausea and rebound headaches. So if you have migraine headaches, ask your doctor about trying this new way to stop the pain before it begins. ACING YOUR VEGETABLE SERVES In the 2010 Wimbledon Championship, John Isner and Nicolas Mahut served up the tennis ball for 11 hours and 5 minutes — the longest match ever. (Isner won.) Now, that’s a lot of servings! And yet, people complain about having to eat nine or more servings of veggies and fruits a day! The benefit of nine veggies a day is astounding. Seven servings (not even the nine we recommend) slash your risk of death at any point in time by 42 percent compared with folks who eat one serving a day. Fresh vegetables offer the best protection; each daily serving reduces your overall risk of death by 16 percent (salads by 13 percent) and each serving of fruit by 4 percent. But only around 60 percent of you eat four servings of veggies a day at least four days a week. And french fries (your most favorite veggie) don’t win you any points! So here’s how you can ace your veggie-serves. 1. Start smart: At breakfast, try sliced tomatoes with 100 percent whole-grain toast; butternut squash puree added to oatmeal. Get creative. (1 serving) 2. Snack smart: Midmorning and afternoon grab carrot and celery spears with

no-fat, no-sugar-added Greek yogurt or 1/4 cup hummus. (1-2 servings) 3. Lunch a bunch: Toss together 2 cups greens (2 servings), 1/4 cup tomato (1/2 serving), 2 tablespoons avocado (1/2 serving) and 1/4 cup blueberries (1/2 serving). (3 1/2 servings) 4. Dinner — and it’s done: Enjoy mixed, steamed veggies (1 cup equals 2 servings) with a drizzle of extravirgin olive oil. PREVENTING INJURIES IN YOUR SPRING TRAINING This year, Major League Baseball revised its rules to prevent bone-jarring collisions at home plate between a base runner and the catcher. That should make “The Boys of Summer” a lot safer during spring training — and the regular season. You can make sure your spring training is safer too, and avoid muscle, tendon and joint pain. When you head outdoors for your daily walk or other physical activities (after a winter spent in the gym, right?), make sure you start out slowly — with reduced speed and less tension. This warms up your muscles and tendons and increases your range of motion. You also might try slow stretching; it improves circulation, increases blood flow to your muscles and helps joints, tendons and sinews become more flexible. It also improves posture and balance (important for pain-free walking and

other activities). And practice visualization: Imagine your muscles and tendons extending, getting more toned, as you exhale into the stretch. You will get maximum results. Want video guidance? Check out Joel Harpers’ Total Stretch on Do the full 30 minutes or pick the moves that target your tightest areas, like your shoulders or hips. Bonus stretch! Did you know intimacy (OK, sex) provides a great warm-up? Contrary to popular myth (sorry, Rocky!), experiencing orgasm does NOT reduce stamina. In fact, sexual arousal increases blood flow to ALL your muscles, and if you’re energetic in the act you’ll ramp up your heart rate and loosen up your body. That’ll put some spring in your spring training! RX FOR CONFLICT RESOLUTION When Rosemary Butler belted out the chorus on Jackson Browne’s version of “Stay (Just a Little Bit Longer)” almost four decades ago, a lot of 50- to 60-yearolds apparently decided to take that advice. There are now over 53,000 centenarians in the U.S. — a 66 percent increase in 30 years! Advances in chronic disease treatment and prevention are extending your lifespan, and increasing the number of medications you take: 75 percent of you, 65 or older, take drugs for at least two chronic disorders; almost a third of you take five or more medications; you also take 35 percent of all over-the-counter drugs. No wonder drug interactions are an increasing problem.

A recent study found that combining prescription meds for high blood pressure (HBP) and osteoarthritis is the most common cause of a risky drug interaction. If you add a cox-2 inhibitor for pain on top of a beta blocker for HBP, the cox-2 inhibitor blocks the beta blocker; your blood pressure stays too high. Other combos of prescription and/or OTC meds cause just as much trouble. To minimize drug interactions: 1. Write down each prescription, non-prescription med and supplement you take. 2. Schedule time with your pharmacist to review your list, checking for drug interactions; take notes. 3. Take your list and notes to your primary care physician. Create a wellness plan that includes stress management, walking and avoiding the Five Food Felons. This will reduce your need for chronic-disease meds. Medicare and most insurance companies cover this visit annually without any copay. STANDING UP WITH STATINS Everything that goes up must come down — or so the saying goes. That’s certainly true of the stock market, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s popularity and the winner’s weight on “The Biggest Loser.” But sometimes the opposite is true. When it comes to elevated levels of lousy LDL cholesterol, more than 32 percent of men in the U.S. can’t get their number down below 100mg/dL. And at the same time, 30 percent of guys 4070 have erectile dysfunction. Coincidence? Nope. High

levels of LDL can clog any blood vessel, not just those in your heart, and make it difficult to achieve an erection. Unless the LDL comes down ... Well, it turns out there’s good news. Statins, the anticholesterol, anti-inflammation medications taken by 15 percent of men in the U.S. ages 45-64 and the 50 percent of those 65-plus, don’t just help prevent cardiovascular disease, dementia and peripheral artery disease, they restore blood flow throughout the body, and that eases ED. While it’s too soon to prescribe statins as ED therapy (not all ED is caused by circulatory problems; psychosocial issues need to be addressed through therapy), it’s one more reason why we say these are life-changing medications. Other good news about potential benefits of statins: They may help prevent blood clots and reduce your risk of developing and dying from all cancers, plus they slash colon cancer chances by 47 percent. And combining a statin with a daily lowdose aspirin (warm water before and after, but check with your doc first) may reduce a woman’s risk of breast cancer. *** 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.

Youth Launch Commission programs promote youth activities Programs to safeguard and promote youth activities and advance senior volunteerism spring out to six southern Iowa communities from the Youth Launch Commission, which is located in the lower level of Graceland University’s Frederick Madison Smith Library. The six counties served include Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Ringgold, Union and Wayne. The mission of the Youth Launch Commission is to “strengthen the culture of positive youth development and civic engagement in southern Iowa through education, volunteerism and service.” “Graceland University is proud to work with the Youth Launch Commission,” said Greg Sutherland, executive director of Affiliate Relations at Graceland University. “We understand that there is nothing more important than to foster the positive growth of the next generation so that they have successful and rewarding lives.” Sutherland has responsibility for program development with Graceland’s various partners. The Youth Launch Commission is one example of his oversight. Just recently re-orga-

nized, the Youth Launch Commission, which is directed by Julie Neas, includes four programs. Neas oversees one of these programs, Youth Launch Leaders, which seeks to empower adults to create healthy, nurturing and supportive environments for youths in southern Iowa. Another program, AmeriCorps Youth Launch, directed by Shannon Harris, provides opportunities for students to lead successful, rewarding and productive lives. AmeriCorps members

build valuable developmental assets, instill civic engagement, and help young people find the “sparks” that ignite their passions in life. The Volunteer Center of Southern Iowa, lead by Amanda Edsall, strives to meet area needs and provide opportunities to strengthen community connectedness through volunteerism. RSVP of Southern Iowa, lead by Jesse Bolinger, utilizes the skills, experiences and talents of people 55 and older to serve in a variety of volunteer activi-

ties. “We are fortunate to live in some amazing communities,” Neas said. “These communities not only believe in themselves but also believe in paving the way for their youth and providing fulfilling opportunities for their seniors. So many people have worked tirelessly to put together the Youth Launch Commission, and we owe them so much for their efforts.” For more information about the Youth Launch Commission programs, visit YLC.

Topham 2nd DES MOINES — The Drake Relays got underway Thursday at Drake Stadium. Griswold’s Rebekah Topham finished second in the 3,000 meter run. Topham crossed the line in 10:00.09, well behind Linn-Mar’s Stephanie Jenks, who shattered the all-time record with a 9:26.87. The previous record was set by Dowling Catholic’s Katie Flood, who ran a 9:43.39 in 2010. Topham was more than three seconds ahead of third-place Karissa Schweizer of Dowling Catholic. Topham is scheduled to run three more events, the 800 meter run on Friday afternoon, then the 1500 meter run and 400 meter hurdles on Saturday afternoon.

Pineda suspended NEW YORK — The MLB suspended New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda on Thursday “for possessing a foreign substance on his person” during Wednesday night’s game against the Red Sox. Pineda was ejected in the second inning when umpires and Red Sox manager John Farrell saw pine tar on the right side of his neck. “I know I make a mistake tonight, and I feel so sad,’’ Pineda said after the game. “I learn from this mistake and I don’t do it again.’’ In his first start against Boston on April 10 at Yankee Stadium, Pineda was accused of having a foreign substance on his wrist. Pineda said after it was a combination of dirt and sweat he used to get a better grip of the ball.

On the girls side, Southwest Valley edged the Panthers by nine strokes for the win. The Panther boys shot a team score of 136, just ahead of Shenandoah’s 141. Southwest Valley finished with a team score of 169. Individually, it was a fourperson battle for the top two spots.

Southwest Valley’s Kim Hults pitches onto the eighth green at Pine Valley in dual action against Creston/O-M Thursday.

Southwest Valley’s Evan Baldwin took runner-up honors with his round of 1-over par 33. Both Hunter Sickels of Creston/O-M and Jackson

Our guys were mentally tough in the cool, wet and windy conditions today. Coach (Jan) Lesan and I are very proud of all of them.” For Southwest Valley, Ryan Carlson finished with a round of 44, followed by Christian Silva with a 45 and Jerod Kubley’s 47 to round out the team scoring. “Evan Baldwin played probably his most aggressive round of the year,” Southwest Valley head c o a c h Baldwin Kent Bass Please see GOLF, Page 2S

Panther girls win three events at Carroll By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

CARROLL — The Creston girls track team finished fifth with 78 points here Thursday at the Tiger/ Knight Relays, and was able to figure a few things out about itself in the process. “A lot of girls answered a lot of questions we’ve been wondering about,” Creston head coach Clay Arnold said. “Maybe we can switch some things around in the lineup from here on out.” The Panthers won three events, including two relays. The Creston 4x800 relay team of Maria Mostek, Jami Sickels, Natalie Mostek and Lexie Little ran 10:25.74 to run away from the competition. “I was pretty disappointed Harlan, Denison and Carroll, none of them brought their A lineups by any means,” Arnold said. “We were really looking for some good competition and didn’t get it.” The Panthers ended the night by running away with the 4x400 crown, as well. That team consisted of Raegen Smith, Chelcee Down-

ing, Little and Natalie Mostek, running 4:21.90. Natalie Mostek had her hand in all three event victories for the Panthers, as she also won the 400 meter dash. “First time all year,” Arnold said. “Didn’t really have much of a competition, but she ran a 1:04.68 for an open PR.”

200 times Arnold said one of the things that stood out for his team on Thursday was some of the 200 meter times his girls ran. That was highlighted by a second-place performance in the 200 meter dash by Smith. “Definitely, hands down, most impressive individual performance of the night was Raegen Smith in the 200 meter dash,” Arnold said. “She got second place, ran a 28.93 and looked re- Smith ally good doing it. That’s her fastest open by far, and she really

hasn’t had much for splits around there in her life, either. We were really impressed with her quickness.” Despite subpar handoffs, the Creston 4x200 relay team of Amber Castillo, Josie Sickels, Madison Callahan and Jessica Beatty took fifth with its fastest time of the year in 1:58.91. Josie Sickels ran a 28.41 split on the relay and Beatty anchored in 28.28. “I was really happy with a lot of our 200s tonight,” Arnold said. “Josie ran a couple really good 200s, Raegen ran that good 200 and Beatty ran an awesome 200. We’ve been really lacking in 200 speed, but we’re starting to figure some things out.”

Doubling up The Panthers were able to double up in several events. Taylor Briley, in just her second race of the season, took second place in the 800 meters in 2:38.37, while Jami Sickels took fourth in 2:40.55. “Old Briley made her debut in the open 800,” Arnold said. “I told her not to go out and kill it on that first lap, wanted her to take it easy. She ran a 1:19

first split, which is going to be too slow for her in the future. Then ran a negative of a 1:18.6 for a second place 2:38.37.” Castillo finished fourth in the long jump with a leap of 14-7 and sophomore Sydney Suiter had a career best leap of 13-9.50 for fifth. Creston also doubled up in the 400 hurdles as Castillo took fourth in 1:15.30 and Madison Hance finished sixth in 1:16.82, a new season best. The Panthers return to action Tuesday at Chariton. “We’re going to look to put together some good relays and good individual events,” Arnold said. “We’ve run some really nice times over there. It’s a pretty decent track if the weather is nice. That’s what we need, is as many nights of good weather as we can get the next two weeks.”

Generations must remember Pat Tillman — the ultimate patriot Nearly 30,000 people will assemble in Tempe, Ariz., this weekend for the 10th annual Pat’s Run, a benefit for the foundation overseen by Pat Tillman’s widow, Marie. There are at least 32 other similar “shadow” runs celebrating Tillman’s spirit in cities throughout the country. Tillman’s death by friendly fire on a remote mountain ridge in Afghanistan was on April 22, 2004. My oldest son Brett was a senior in high school. He turned 29 earlier Tillman this month. It dawned on me this week there is a whole new generation of students today who don’t know directly of that tragic event in our nation’s history. Maybe only a passing glance at an ESPN mention on the anniversary, or perhaps something they’ve read. Two things should not be forgot-

Straight shots Larry Peterson sports writer

ten about Pat Tillman — 1) What he did for himself, and for this country, in paying the ultimate sacrifice; and 2) How the military brass mishandled the cover-up of what really happened. I remember sitting in my living room, watching the emotional memorial service on TV, under the impression he had been killed by enemy fire in combat while serving with the Army Rangers on the hunt for Osama bin Laden in the remote areas of Afghanistan. The military was painting him as the ultimate hero, choosing to face the enemy in a war he didn’t have to join. He could have accepted a $3.6 million contract to continue playing safety for the Arizona Cardinals. Basically, the initial news of his death was trumpted in a way that might stir many others to enlist.

So, it was kind of a bitter pill to swallow later, when the “real” version started reaching the public. A report this week by ESPN by investigative reporter Mike Fish shed some light on the event, as Fish got fellow platoon member Steven Elliott on record saying what happened that evening in the dark shadows of a narrow mountain road. Also speaking on camera was Bryan O’Neal, who was then a 19-year-old member of the same platoon, standing right next to Tillman when the former football star was shot in the forehead by members of his own unit. O’Neal, Tillman and Sayed Farhad, an allied Afghan soldier, had quickly climbed the ridge on Tillman’s order, to provide cover fire for the convoy below, which was under attack. Unfortunately, they were mistaken for the enemy. Communication was difficult in the steep mountainous terrain and those in the vehicle below did not know of Tillman’s plan to help from above. Tillman tried to shout to them below to stop shooting, and even

tossed up a smoke bomb as a signal to stop shooting. The next instant, he was down with three fatal gunshot wounds. O’Neal, to this day, can’t walk by a water fountain, because the sound of the water gurgling is so similar to Tillman’s rapid blood loss. Somehow, O’Neal was the only of the three to walk down from that ridge, having found cover behind a boulder. The guilt he felt turned him into an alcoholic for a time. He got help from counseling, and now trains Army Rangers. Elliott, one of those firing at the men above, also developed a drinking problem and required extensive counseling. Both he an O’Neal married, divorced and remarried in the 10 years since. The only sanctions against the shooters was to be removed from the Ranger unit and moved into the general Army corps. It was a horrific screw-up, and worse yet was how it was concealed from the Tillman family. Kevin, Pat’s brother, was several hundred yards away as a member of the same Ranger unit, and did

not know the full story until weeks later. This was tragic on so many levels. Youngsters today probably couldn’t even imagine a Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year at Arizona State, NFL starting safety for the Cardinals, leaving millions of dollars on the table and a comfortable home with his wife to join the U.S. Army. But that’s what he did in June 2002 in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Pro athletes just don’t do that, at least not since the World War II days of Bob Feller and Ted Williams. The legacy, now, is how Pat Tillman lived. Not how he died. The more you read about the man, the more inspired you become to do something meaningful with your life. O’Neal, for example, called him a “big brother influence.” Tillman, 27 at the time, taught him the selfconfidence, thirst for knowledge Please see SHOTS, Page 2S
