owa Gov. Terry Branstad spent 45 minutes here Tuesday touring a brand new $30 million soy flour mill facility at CHS, Inc. located on East Howard Street in Creston. CHS top executives Carl Casale and Tom Malecha guided the tour. They told Branstad the flour mill facility should be fully operational by mid-summer and will produce 30 to 35 good-paying jobs in Creston. That’s welcoming news for Branstad who hasn’t given up on his administration’s goal of creating 200,000 jobs in Iowa by 2015. It’s also welcoming news for Creston which lost more than 70 jobs in September 2013 when Gits Manufacturing officially announced its closure. “When you have one of the largest soy flour plants in North America, which that is what this plant in Creston is, it provides an opportunity in our local Pantini ag industry to capitalize on new jobs and new investments in the community,” said Wayne Pantini, executive director of Union County Development Association. Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds viewed two levels of the flour mill building Tuesday morning. The mill will be capable of producing 200,000 tons of soy products per year, when fully operational. Malecha said the soy flour will be

made from whole soybeans produced by farmers in the nine counties surrounding Creston. Malecha said soy flour is used in doughnuts, breads and cookies. “Soy flour is a replacement for wheat flour,” Malecha said. “Soy flour has a higher nutritional content and is prefferred for baking items because more water can be added which increase moistness of the bakery products, thus, adding shelf life.” Soy flour can also be a meat extender for products like pizza toppings and imitation bacon bits. “The soy flour is mixed in with sausage or pepperoni pizza topping,”Malecha said. “It might be 2/3 meat and 1/3 soy flour, and the soy flour does two Please see FLOUR MILL, Page 2

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

Creston is on the edge of the predicted severe weather that will move through the central part of the state this afternoon and into Friday morning. The Creston News Advertiser coverage area has a 40 percent chance of receiving rain today, with the potential for some of the showers to have heavy winds, hail and the potential for an isolated tornado. “It looks like it will hit in the late afternoon, which is the typical time to get severe weather this time of year,” said state climatologist Harry Hillaker. “For the most part, the severe weather this season has not been widespread, but one bad after- Hillaker noon can make the season.” Hail is dependent on how ■ Storm high the freezing level is in the expected atmosphere.

The storm system started to pass through the state Wednesday with an isolated storm dropping hail between Fort Dodge and Sac City. Temperatures could reach the 80s today depending on how much cloud cover precedes the storm system. The forecast for the weekend has temperatures around 70, which Hillaker said is typical of this time of year. The next chance of rain for the Creston area will be Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.

DNR confirms wolf found in Iowa (MCT) — A coyote hunter in February shot a wolf near Fairbank in northwest Buchanan County — the first documented wolf in Iowa since at least 1925, according to the Department of Natural Resources. The confirmation of the animal as a wolf, by DNA testing, closes the circle on big predators that, though once exterminated, have re-entered Iowa, at least in small numbers — black bear, mountain lion and now the wolf. “I was surprised but not that surprised,” said DNR furbearer specialist Vince Evelsizer, noting that Wisconsin and Minnesota have substantial wolf populations. “Large animals can cover great distances, and state lines mean nothing to them,” he said. Evelsizer’s lack of surprise was foretold in the

OPINION

What are you getting mom for Mother’s Day? It’s that time of year again. Mother’s Day. It gets kind of challenging trying to figure out what you should get your mother when she is almost 80 years old. I settled for what I called the easy alternative. It’s called cash and a card! You can’t go too far wrong with cash. That way my mom can get whatever she wants. I’m sure the usual assortment of mom’s day gifts will be going out — chocolates, jewelry and flowers to name a few. The best present in my book when we were growing up was taking mom out to eat, that way everyone gets to celebrate the day. My wife enjoys a nice steak off the grill so Mother’s Day at our house will be spent on the deck. Fishing I had a chance to take in a little

What’s up Rich Paulsen publisher

fishing here as of late. The bass are back in full swing. I caught several nice four and five pounders. The report from the crappie fishermen is they are starting to come into the “bite.” The walleye are also out in full force from my report. The fishing season is off and running. Planting It looks like the local farmers are starting to put it into high gear on their planters. It has been kind of a rough start to the planting season so far. The winter dragging far into the spring season has slowed down

a lot of folks on getting their fields planted. The report I saw from the state yesterday said less than 25 percent of the corn is planted so far. It is going to be a busy month if you’re farming! NFL For those of you who need a little football fix, tonight is the start of the NFL draft. It is always fun to see the college kids get a new job and team. I would not be surprised to see a number of trades both up and down to get a player that some team is looking for. The draft is late this year. So it will be interesting to see if that effects getting all the rookies signed and into camp. More football Look in the Creston News Advertiser starting the week of May 19 for a chance to see an Iowa Barnstorm-

ers game at a bargain price. Several local merchants are helping to sponsor a Creston/southwest Iowa night at a Barnstormers game on June 14. There will be a pre-game tailgate and the Creston High Peppers will be performing during the game. Creston Living Look for another edition of the Creston Living magazine coming out right after Memorial Day. The wellread magazine will offer up another taste of country and suburban living. The magazine will feature many of the local merchants and folks you do business with. New Mill I had a chance to tour the new soy flour mill when Gov. Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds were in town the other day. What a great facility and nice addition to our town.

It looks like CHS did it right with the “state of the art” plant. They built the facility with expansion in mind. You can learn more about the plant in Kyle Wilson’s story in today’s paper. The value added facility will help the farmers in the area a great deal. School We are now down to the last few weeks of school. There will be a number of local high school graduations around the Memorial Day weekend. Tomorrow is graduation for SWCC at the Creston campus. Retiring English teacher Dave Neas will be delivering the commencement speech. Thought for the week: “A verbal contract is not worth the paper it’s written on.” — Samuel Goldwyn

Letter to the editor

How long? From Sandra Kessler Creston

How long is this town going to put up with the decision to put the library in old Lincoln School? The idea was made by a few people (library board). What can be done to reverse this? I am certainly in agreement with

Mary Sid McDonald to add on to the south, if needed. I do not think it needs to be a coffeehouse. Jim Stalker is certainly right about cost for heating and AC. Maybe we need to think about replacing the board. We sure don’t need to plan for something we don’t have money to spend.

Oregon State fired Craig Robinson as the Oregon State basketball coach HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? The California State Assembly banned state-owned gift shops from selling or displaying the Confederate flag on Monday by an overwhelming vote. The reaction was par for the course. In response, the state-owned gift shops announced they are moving their shops to Texas. President Obama flew to Los Angeles Wednesday to be honored by Steven Spielberg and his Shoah Foundation that night. Streets were shut down for security from the Westside to Beverly Hills to downtown. The police do this every time Spielberg drives into town from Malibu. Oregon State fired Craig Robinson as the Oregon State basketball coach Monday despite the fact that he’s President Obama’s brother-in-law. This is a crippling blow to American prestige. Vladimir Putin isn’t afraid of President Obama’s red line, and neither is Oregon State. The White House read a report on climate and atmosphere Tuesday and used it to issue dire

Topical humor Argus Hamilton

warnings. They said the looming climate change is threatening to human health and well being. The Weather Channel just said the five-day forecast for Eastern Ukraine is two days. Monica Lewinsky wrote about her White House affair with Bill Clinton in Vanity Fair this month. It ruined Monica’s reputation but it only added to Bill’s reputation. The moment Chelsea has her baby this fall, it automatically triggers in Hollywood the sequel to Bad Grandpa. Vladimir Putin’s wealth was analyzed by accountants Monday who estimate his personal worth around seventy-five billion dollars. The news drew cheers from the threatened Baltic states and concerns from Russia’s Army. They know how Obama feels about the one percenters.

2014

Solitary confinement is not the answer There has been much attention, and rightly so, on the CIA’s extensive use of torture, which the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is said to have documented in its still-classified 6,000-page report. The use of torture is not limited to the CIA, however. It is all too common across the United States. Solitary confinement is torture, and it is used routinely in jails, prisons and immigration detention facilities here at home. Grass-roots movements that have been pressuring for change are beginning to yield significant results. The coalitions include prisoners, their families, a broad swath of legal and social-justice groups and, increasingly, prison guards and officials themselves. One official who worked to reduce the use of solitary confinement was Tom Clements. The executive director of Colorado’s Department of Corrections, Clements was at home on March 19, 2013, when his doorbell rang. As he opened the door, he was gunned down, murdered by Evan Ebel, who had been released from solitary confinement directly to the street less than two months earlier. The small, nonprofit Colorado Independent was the only outlet to link the murder to the psychological damage that Ebel suffered in solitary confinement. Another exprisoner who corresponded with Ebel disclosed text messages with him, shortly before Ebel killed Clements. One text read, “im just feeling peculiar & the only way i know i know to remedy that is via use of ‘violence.’ Ironically, Clements was trying, successfully, to reform Colorado’s solitary-confinement policies, referred to there as “administrative segregation.” A year before his murder, Clements told The Colorado Independent’s Susan Greene, “There’s a lot of research around solitary and isolation in recent years, some tied to POWs and

King Features commentary Amy Goodman

some to corrections ... long periods of isolation can be counter-productive to stable behavior and longterm rehabilitation goals.” He was concerned with the direct release of prisoners from solitary back into the community, a practice that likely contributed to his murder. His successor, Rick Raemisch, continues to pursue the reforms started by Tom Clements. Raemisch subjected himself to over 20 hours in solitary, and emerged even more committed to changing the system. Juan Mendez, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture, issued a special report on solitary confinement in 2011, concluding “Segregation, isolation, separation, cellular, lockdown, Supermax, the hole, Secure Housing Unit (SHU) ... whatever the name, solitary confinement should be banned by states as a punishment or extortion technique.” His latest full report on global torture includes several noted alleged excesses by the United States, including abusive solitary confinement practiced from Afghanistan to Guantanamo Bay to New York state, Louisiana and California. In California, prisoners went on hunger strike for months last year, protesting solitary confinement, gaining widespread public support and achieving some of their demands. In Louisiana, Albert Woodfox has been in solitary confinement for more than 42 years, found guilty of murdering a prison guard, despite the lack of any physical evidence linking him to the crime and eyewitnesses placing him elsewhere at the time. Courts have ordered his release three times, the most recent of which was ap-

pealed by the state of Louisiana. A federal appeals court is expected to decide on his case soon. Studies have found that irreversible psychological damage can occur after just 15 days in solitary confinement. The UN’s Mendez alleges that New York state’s prison system is excessively harsh in its use of solitary. The New York Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement is pushing a bill, the Humane Alternatives to LongTerm (HALT) Solitary Confinement Act. The bill would limit such confinement to 15 days, and create special treatment facilities for prisoners suffering from mental illness, and grant more time outside the cell, including contact with others. Even prison guards are weighing in against solitary. In Texas, Lance Lowry, president of AFSCME Local 3807 of the Texas Correctional Employees, wrote an open letter to Texas prison officials that called on them to reduce the use of solitary confinement, including on the state’s death row. He told me on the “Democracy Now!” news hour, “What we found is the overall use of solitary confinement in Texas was not serving its intended purposes. We went from a couple hundred lock-up cells to over 8,000 at one point.” Recidivism, violence and the overall financial costs of incarceration are all increased by the use of solitary confinement. Most importantly, it’s torture. It’s time to put an end to solitary confinement. *** Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

Labeled for theft Dear Heloise: I read your column where you answered a letter on how to pack for an out-of-state MOVE. There’s one thing I need to add to your advice about marking the boxes with their contents. I have had an unpleasant experience from doing that very thing: stolen boxes due to that mistake. One box was labeled as “Breakable, handle with care, antique perfume bottles.” This box was stolen and held my collection of 30-plus years! I learned from this experience, and in doing so, I came up with this checklist. As you pack a box, write the items in a binder, one to two pages per box, and number that page, along with the corresponding number on the box. Also, take a picture of the box halfway through packing, and again when finished. This system will help as well if and when you need to give information to insurance companies. — Cathy R. in California Good advice! You want to label the boxes, but not be so descriptive that thieves know the exact contents of each box — especially which box

The “high” setting may cause the wax to splatter as it melts.

Teacher Spotlight: Mr. Siglin

iSkate uSkate

Liam Ray III

Mr. Siglin is known at Creston High School for being a man of science, almost like our local “Bill Nye the Science Guy” where he has an exciting way of teaching and all his students join in, shouting “Science rules!” Creston High School seniors, Alex Heacock and William Haugland recall their time being taught by Mr. Siglin. “He was a fun, laid-back teacher but you always learned something in his class,” said Haugland. “Yeah, I loved his class,” Heacock added, “You were pretty much guaranteed fun every day.” Freshman student, Cora Green said, “He’s a cool guy…he’s down-to-earth and very understanding.” Another freshman student, Tyler Peters explained, “His labs are fun…it’s not just a textbook class.” Mr. Siglin loves teaching students about science but there is more to this teacher than what meets the eye. “I can knock a freshman out with a marker from fifteen feet,” Siglin joked. He then explained that he grew up working on a farm where he learned one of his unique skills: “I was a pig whisperer”. Siglin said as he laughed, “I could take a piglet from its mother without her attacking me.” Mr. Siglin later would go on to become an Agriculture teacher for four years. However, Siglin also told of the five years that he worked for an airline. “I did it all, man…every form of customer service from baggage to taking tickets.” Siglin shared. He went on to say that he has been involved in various theatre productions over the years and is also mildly artistic whenever he is inspired. Mr. McCracken, another Creston science teacher stated, “Well I’ve never had him as a teacher,” he chuckled and continued, “But he chairs our SAC meetings and does a good job with that.”

Mr. Siglin is perhaps known best for his two other special skills: unicycling and juggling. He began juggling around the age of 12 but both of these skills were perfected in his college days and since then has shown his talent for his students and other community members. Siglin reminisced on a time when he was juggling the ignited torches at a community event, “There were paper decorations all over and I accidentally dropped one of the torches…which just so happened to roll under one of the decorated areas…it was almost impossible for it to catch fire but the people didn’t know that…it was still pretty embarrassing.” He said that juggling those torches “look amazing and fun but are not dangerous.” He went on to elaborate a more personal experience regarding juggling. He had been asked to come juggle for a group of kids in a day care, sadly, a close family member of his had just passed away earlier that morning, but he still went to the kids and did his act for them. “It was tough but truly therapeutic.” Siglin said. So, if you ever happen to take one of Mr. Siglin’s classes or pass by his room, you may not only get to see some exciting science experiments but perhaps a juggling act or even pass him going down the hall on his unicycle. Whether he is a pig whisperer, entertainer, or epic science teacher, Mr. Siglin is one cool guy. Richard Siglin, CHS Science

MOTHER’S DAY ARTS & CRAFTS Bree Daggett

It’s that time of the year again! The time to celebrate our mothers, grandmothers, and even great-grandmothers. Whether you have had time to plan a gift for your mother, or if you are in need of some last minute gifts, here are some quick do-ityourself presents that are sure to bring a smile to your mother’s face. Decorated Mug Take any plain mug you have and decorate it with sharpie. Draw a picture, write a Bible verse or quote, anything you want. When you are done, bake the mug in the oven for 30 minutes at 425 degrees. When that is done, use a clear coat of nail polish over the sharpie to prevent any flaking. This gift will make your mom’s morning cup of coffee even more meaningful to her.

Flower Cupcakes Spring showers bring May flowers, right? With this gift, all you need is to bake a batch of your mom’s favorite cupcakes and decorate with frosting. Use different colored frosting to decorate the cupcakes like flowers. If making petals seems a little difficult, you can always spell out a nice message. This is going to make those cupcakes taste ten times sweeter. Letter When all else fails, sit down and write a letter telling your mom how much she means to you. With everything moms do for their kids, we often forget to thank them. A gift like this would mean so much more to your mom than a box of chocolates or a bouquet of flowers. And while you are at it, start writing a letter to your grandma, too!

Accepting the Unacceptable Commentary Ryan Vasquez, Staff Writer In the United States, same-sex marriage is only legally accepted in 17 out of the 50 states, which includes Iowa. Though it is legally capable, it is not completely viewed as morally acceptable. Many people have reasons such as religious views and homophobia. There is always a fear from gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people, of being ridiculed and despised by their family and friends. It is a common occurrence that the gay child is unaccepted in their families for the fact of them being the way that they were born. It can also go the other way, and the parents are okay with their child’s sexuality. I was one of these lucky people. I realized that I was a bisexual in 8th grade, when I had discovered my first feelings for a girl. I was not yet comfortable with myself as a person as is, and was not comfortable with my sexuality. It was not until my freshman year that I had decided to come out to my long time best friend. We were preparing for cross country and training when I had stopped running and started crying. I hugged her and told her that I was a bisexual. She wiped away my tears and simply said, “What does that change? Let’s keep running,” and simply smiled at me. It wasn’t until my sophomore year when I told my mother, and I yet again cried. My mother, who I knew was going to accept me, hugged me tight and said that it was okay, and that she loved me. After slowly coming out to my friends one by one, I grew more confidence in myself and who I had started to become. It was this year, my final year of high school, when I had finally came out to everyone and posted on Facebook that I was a bisexual. I am one of the luckiest people in the world just for the fact that though I live in a small town, no one in my community had said anything negative, and I had only received positive reinforcement. I could talk to anyone with questions, and could really be myself. It wasn’t until one week ago when I knew that I had not only a soccer team, but another family who had my back. Though most of the girls on my team are religious and Christian, they asked me questions of who I was and how I felt about women. They asked of who I had liked and laughed with me and if it was completely normal, and accepted me for something that can be seen as morally wrong. We live in a small Midwest town, but I can say that there is a wall of supporters ready to fight for not only just the happiness of LGBT people, but the equality in their rights with others. No matter what religion or view, Creston is

Outdoor-Friendly Materials Have you ever wondered how some products are suitable for the outdoors while others can only be kept inside? Various processes and materials give outdoor furniture and decor durability and weather-resistant appeal.

T

he arrival of summer, along with its sunny skies and beautiful weather, beckons homeowners to create a space to entertain guests and enjoy the great outdoors. Design an outdoor living room that merges style and function, and incorporates elements of indoor comfort. Whether entertaining for two or 10, the warmer weather provides an abundance of opportunities to lounge in peaceful, open-air surroundings. New offerings in decor and design breathe indoor inspiration into your outdoor spaces, creating a beautiful extension of your home for all to enjoy. “It’s easier than ever to bring the comfort and style of your favorite indoor spaces into your porch, patio and other outdoor areas,” said Aimee Beatty, in-house stylist with Pier 1 Imports. “From comfy throw pillows to trendy rugs, colorful artwork and cheery curtains, new outdoor products boast durability and so much style that your patio will be the neighborhood’s go-to summer hot spot.” Beatty shares some of her stylish secrets to make your outdoor space an elegant living space worth sharing.

Arrange away Treat your outdoor area as you would your living room. If space is limited, use sectionals to create seating in whatever arrangement fits best. If there is more room, add an investment piece, such as the Echo Beach Dining Table from Pier 1 Imports. This high-quality piece is made from handcrafted, allweather synthetic rattan and offers plenty of space to arrange chairs just as you would in your dining room. Finish the look by layering your favorite accessories, such as handcrafted trays, detailed lanterns and a colorful floral arrangement to create a cheerful centerpiece that makes your guests feel welcome.

Tie it all together To let you in on a little secret — outdoor rugs tie everything together and really bring a space to life. Simply layer a rug, such as Pier 1 Imports’ chic Wavy Geo Rug, with a beautiful seating collection, colorful cushions

Mix and match with color and patterns, and personalize your space with accents such as outdoor artwork, planters, umbrellas and more. A smart combination of accessories really transforms an outdoor space from simple to fabulous.

Ever think about all the abuse from the elements outdoor pillows, seat cushions and umbrellas suffer? Between the sun, rain and everything in-between, fabrics made for outdoor use are designed to withstand the elements, keeping your newly designed patio fresh for all the parties to come. Synthetic fibers used in these fabrics are designed to bead water, resist stains and maintain their color. With this in mind, you can lengthen the lifespan of such materials by covering them when not in use and avoiding prolonged exposure to rain or sun.

Be bright, all night

Acrylics and Melamine

and pillows, and you’ve got an outdoor area that makes everyone comfortable and happy.

Embrace the bold Some might be afraid to create a statement outside because — it’s outside. But an outdoor living space lends itself to adventures with color and pattern, providing the opportunity to be bold and to go beyond your comfort zone. When shopping for the outdoors, remember — anything goes.

Make it uniquely yours

The sun may still be shining when the guests arrive, but you’ll need something to light up the night and keep the party going all evening long. Create a delightful, welcoming atmosphere with a variety of outdoor lighting options, such as string lights, paper lanterns or floating LED candles placed around the patio. Fashion an elegant glow with lanterns in various sizes, such as the Scroll Trim Lanterns from Pier 1 Imports.

Serve in style Al fresco entertaining always focuses on food, drinks and friends. A selfservice food station or bar enhances the casual tone, freeing guests to grab refreshments whenever they please. This also allows you, the host, to focus on the fun at hand. Look for serving and drink carts that maximize space, such as the Rania Serving Cart from Pier 1 Imports, which has three levels so there’s plenty of room to stash an ice bucket, drink dispenser, snacks, lawn games and more. So let the warmth of the season bring many memorable moments to your life and stylish elements into your outdoor spaces. For more great decorating ideas, visit www.pier1.com.

Outdoor drinkware and dinnerware made of acrylic and melamine provide much of the same great style as their glass counterparts without the breakability. A nice set of acrylic drinkware and melamine dinnerware, such as Summer Quench Turquoise Goblets and Trellis Dinnerware, both from Pier 1 Imports, will keep your outdoor soiree safe and fun throughout the evening.

Synthetic Rattan and Wicker Wicker may be the traditional material for outdoor furniture, but this new generation of synthetic wickers and rattans is not your grandmother’s porch furniture. All-weather chairs, tables and more are woven of synthetic rattan or wicker over durable, rust-resistant frames, making them durable and easy to clean. This approach offers the flexibility to incorporate a woven look into furniture of all styles — from traditional to global, modern to whimsical — without sacrificing durability and longevity.

Versatility keys Schimp’s success at SWCC By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

baserunning specialist — Schimp’s instincts in the outfield were a little rusty. She had stepped forward toward the ball, until she realized just how hard it had been hit. Then her innate athleticism took over. “I saw the line drive coming at me, then I realized it was going to go over my head,” Schimp said. “There was no time to run back. I just stopped, and jumped up as high as I could, reached up and caught it. Peyton (Russell)

was at second base, and her mouth just kind of dropped open. Emma (Ferin) in center yelled, ‘good thing you’ve got vertical!’ I guess I used one of my other sports.” Schimp, who high jumped 5-foot-6 in high school, has been using her varied athletic talents in three sports during her two years at Southwestern Community College. For her efforts, she recently received the SWCC Outstanding Female Athlete

Award.

In her first year as libero, she led Region XI in digs with 849, averaging 6.02 per set. She helped the unranked Spartans beat the nation’s eighth-ranked team, Kirkwood, in the Region XI-B finals. At the national tourney, the 12th-seeded Spartans placed fifth, capping a 37-10 season. DMACC, the Region XI-A champ and ranked 13th in the nation, placed behind the Spartans in ninth place. • As a freshman, she competed in the high jump on SWCC’s inaugural track and field team. While barely able to practice because of a troublesome case of knee tendinitis, Schimp qualified for both the national indoor and national outdoor meets with a top jump of 5-2. “She was 14th in the nation at indoors, but that was on number of misses,” SWCC coach Bill Huntington said. “Only four girls actually jumped higher than she did.

Schimp was the libero of the Spartan volleyball team that finished fifth at nation- didn’t want to risk anything als, qualified for nationals in the high jump her freshman year and played softball her for volleyball for her.”

• Not wanting to jump again this spring with her knee issues, Schimp took up Stumpff’s offer to join the softball team, which had graduated most of its 2013 lineup. It was the first time in five years she had played the sport, but Stumpff transformed her into a lefthanded slap hitter, utilizing her speed out of the batter’s box. Stumpff was a sprinter at Hampton-Dumont. She progressed from a player who whiffed at the ball just sitting on a tee when she began winter indoor workouts, to a solid junior college player who batted .270 and a threat on the basepaths. She also became a functioning outfielder, she says, through the support of her teammates. “They were always reminding me where to throw the ball before the pitch,” Schimp said. “It was such a great group of girls. That Schimp made it all worthwhile. And Lindsay Stumpff is a great softball coach.” In her first two games at Myrtle Beach, S.C., Schimp’s only contact with a pitch was a foul ball. She was frustrated, on the verge of abandoning the experiment, until a conversation with former SWCC star Amber Brown, now the team’s assistant coach. “Amber told me to not be upset, that switching me like that after not playing, they were expecting me to strike out for a few games,”

Schimp said. “She helped me relax. Then the next game I hit a single and triple. I had more confidence with it toward the end.” “She got that slapping down,” Stumpff said. “She’s one of the most athletic kids I’ve ever coached.”

Family influence Schimp inherited her intense, analytic approach to athletics. She is the daughter of Mike and Tammy Schimp of Hampton. Both are teachers at HamptonDumont High School, Tammy in math and Mike in physical education. Mike was a collegiate wrestler at Missouri and Buena Vista, and has coached wrestling and football, including when her brother, Bryce, was an undersized yet valuable lineman. Her father’s experience in athletics came in handy when Schimp encountered her situation as a sophomore, when All-American setter Cassidy Yong joined the team. Blessington said both players were too good to sit out half of the time. She had an idea to transform Schimp into a defensive specialist. In high school, Schimp’s father helped her cope with the dissension among some people who resented her starting role as a freshman. Now, his lessons would apply to a new challenge. “Melissa asked me how I felt about being a libero,” Schimp related. “I had never played back row in my life! But my dad taught me a lesson early on. When you get on the court, it’s about being part of a team, it’s not about you. I like Please see SCHIMP, page 10A

High goals, hard work characterize SWCC Male Athlete of the Year By JAKE WADDINGHAM

CNA associate editor • jwaddingham@crestonnews.com

It was a moment of frustration that fueled the 2014 Southwestern Community College Male Athlete of the Year to make running his passion. At the high school district meet his freshman year, Rayvonne Brown toed the line for Davenport West in the 1,600-meter run. “Losing made me find my passion for running; it made me work harder,” Brown said. As Brown grew stronger on the track, he developed a knack for the faster races. His sophomore and junior years he went down to the 800 meters and by his senior year, he was leading the 4x400 meter relay. “Ray probably wasn’t a very heavily recruited runner out of high school,” said SWCC track head coach Bill Huntington. “His coach had called me and said he had a young man with a lot of potential.” In cross country, Brown took 27 seconds off of his personal best 5K during his first race as a Spartan. He made the varsity squad his freshman and sophomore years at Southwestern and ran at the national championship race each year. “He made so much growth that first year,” Huntington said. “We knew we had something special, especially since

cross country was not his number one sport.” Brown, 20, said during the recruiting process Huntington promised certain times Brown could reach under his training program. “I am running all of those times now,” Brown said. “He made a promise and he kept his promise.”

playing.” In retrospect, it was a move that paid off. Southwestern now had not only the best setter in the league, but the most athletic libero, and a rapidly improving front line. When Northwest Missouri State transfer Janaya Fox got rolling as a hitter who earned all-tourney honors at the national championships, it was a complete team. “Molly is such a good setter, it truly was tough to choose between the two,” said Blessington, now head coach at Ottawa University in Kansas. “She got looks by Division I schools as a setter. But I didn’t have anybody to play libero, so instead of splitting time between two fantastic setters, I had a conversation with Molly about playing some DS and probably being our libero. I told her I need her out there for six rotations. It would be a waste of talent to split time.” In a short time, Schimp was quickly gaining notoriety as a player who could shut down an opposing offense by getting to balls a lesser athlete couldn’t. “I knew she would never let a ball hit the ground,”

Blessington said. “She’s physically so gifted. People can’t do some of the things she can do. Plus, she’s competitive and the hardest worker. She said to me when we first talked, ‘Whatever you need me to do to win.’ She had a 3.5 GPA during our volleyball semester. With all of the class time we miss, that takes a lot of self-motivation.”

Future As a 5-9 standout setter and libero, Schimp could have a lot of choices in extending her volleyball career as a junior and senior. But, she’s most likely headed to the Division III level, partly because of academics. Among her choices are Buena Vista, coached by former Creston High School coach Lori Slight, and Wartburg, which is an Iowa Conference power not far from her home. She plans to major in physical education and would someday like to coach volleyball at the collegiate level. “When it comes down to it, academics is the most important thing, because I’m not going to be playing volleyball my whole life,” Schimp said. “The DIII’s have amazing placement

Sports briefs Bower signs GREENFIELD — Nodaway Valley senior TJ Bower signed a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday afternoon to play basketball for Southwestern Community College next year. “It feels good to have a decision made,” Bower said. “I’ve been waiting a while for it. Feels like I’m under two good coaches, and looking forward to nice things in the future.” For a full story on Bower signing with Southwestern, see Friday’s CNA sports section.

Rankings The Creston boys soccer team, now 9-2, remains at No. 11 on the Class 2A ratings by the Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association this week. Glenwood (7-2), which beat the Panthers last week, moved up one spot to No. 7. Riverside Oakland (7-2), which plays in the Creston Invitational Saturday, is ranked No. 14 in Class 1A. Council Bluffs St. Albert is tied for 16th. Harlan received votes in 2A.

after those two years are over. Melissa offered (at Ottawa), but after hardly ever getting home for two years with all of the sports, I thought it was too far away.” Now, she’s prepared to play any position she’s asked to play. She has plenty of experience with that.

“I’ll do whatever the coach wants to put me in,” Schimp said. “I’ve been a setter since fifth grade, so obviously I’m comfortable there. Libero is fun, too. As libero, I get to stop the other team from doing their job, and that feels good.” Whatever it takes to win. That’s Molly Schimp.

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers

SPEED FREAKS A couple questions we had to ask — ourselves

AP/RAINIER EHRHARDT

Worried? Does Jimmie look worried? How many friends did Brad Keselowski make at Talladega? GODSPEAK: “Bad Brad” still has wingman Joey Logano, and don’t forget that Juan Pablo Montoya will be making a couple of Team Penske starts this season. KEN’S CALL: He’s not in it for friends, it appears. And that’s a good thing. He messed up in a pretty big way.

Are they getting the least bit nervous on the No. 48 team? GODSPEAK: I don’t think nervous, but there appeared to be a touch of concern emanating from crew chief Chad Knaus on Sunday. KEN’S CALL: Settle down, the 48 will make the Chase, even winless. Trust me.

HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ

EYEING THE FUTURE

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the odds-on favorite to win Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. He led 26 of 188 laps in his No. 88 Chevrolet, but late in the race gave up the lead to make a pit stop for tires and fuel. He didn’t have enough gas to finish the 500-mile race. Earnhardt’s game plan at that point was to make a late charge through the field, but he didn’t get the chance because there were just too many cars on the lead lap. The Daytona 500 champion wound up finishing 26th in one of the fastest cars on the 2.66-mile tri-oval. “You have to have that track position at the end and we just didn’t have it,” Earnhardt said. “I knew we were going to be sitting there in 15th at the end and get boxed in or wrecked. “We missed a lot of guys that crashed and didn’t tear up our car, so we will go to Daytona with this car and try to manage a strategy where we are not giving up 25 positions in the last 30 laps of the race.” And this is where you sense a little irritation in Earnhardt’s voice. “You have to be up front the entire race if you can,” he said. “Those guys at the end, the No. 15 (Clint Bowyer), No. 16 (Greg Biffle) and No. 11 (Denny Hamlin), — well the 15 drove up through there. But the 11 and the 16 — those guys managed it real good.” Earnhardt said he didn’t want to wreck a car capable of winning July’s Daytona Coke Zero 400. “Talladega is three-wide forever,” he said. “You know they’re going to crash, and I can’t afford to wreck anymore here. So, you’ve just got to pick your battles.”

Greg Biffle is giving it all he’s got and then some. He was disappointed he didn’t get the win at Talladega, finishing second to Denny Hamlin on a last-lap yellow flag. The 44-year-old driver is in a contract year, and a few wins would make negotiations much easier. He scored three wins over the 2012-13 Cup Series seasons. “We still have some work to do, but it sure would have been nice to get a win toward the Chase, but we’ve got some great race tracks coming up as well,” he said. “That would have been nice.”

Does the Talladega win finally get Denny Hamlin’s season pointed in the right direction? You’re tempted to say yes, of course, because the good vibes always get in high gear when you spend a Sunday evening picking champagnesoaked confetti out of your hair. But let’s temper the “Here Comes Denny!” talk for a couple of reasons. 1. It was Talladega. Surely we’ve all learned that you can’t equate restrictor-plate success with overall NASCAR mastery; and 2. It was Denny Hamlin. Given his run of “luck” the past couple of years, you might want to take a wait-and-see approach.

Where’s Keselowski pointed? Somewhere far from harm’s way, we hope, for everyone’s sake. Brad Keselowski might lead the free world in Twitter followers, but he gained no friends Sunday at Talladega. First, he appeared to cut down too soon on Danica Patrick while passing for the lead — oops. Then, in a move that only a die-hard Kez fan would love, he was racing for all he’s worth among the lead pack, late in the race, when he spun and ruined plans for a lot of contenders. Oh, did we mention he was six laps down at the time?

Careless, or just competitive? When you think about it, the line between the two really isn’t that thin. When battling to win at Talladega, it might be a tightrope, but six laps down, the margin of error is wider than I-95. Get out of the way next time.

APOLOGY ACCEPTED?

FEEDBACK

CONTRACT-YEAR RACIN’

AP/RAINIER EHRHARDT

With the exception of hungry towtruck drivers, no one was happy with Brad Keselowski.

Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach NewsJournal for 27 years. Reach him at ken.willis@news-jrnl.com

Brad Keselowski triggered a wicked multi-car accident by racing aggressively with the leaders despite being six laps down after an early tango with Danica Patrick. Matt Kenseth was eliminated in the melee. “Well, I will say one thing: If it was the other way around and it was anybody else except for him, we’d all be getting lectured,” Kenseth said of Keselowski. Keselowski didn’t apologize until he left the track and sent out this tweet: “Hate causing the big one” and “Been on the other side of the shoe and it stinks.” We will see how bad it stinks Saturday night at Kansas Speedway.

FEUD OF THE WEEK

MATT KENSETH

BRAD

KESELOWSKI Matt Kenseth vs. Brad Keselowski: Keselowski was six laps down, spun in the lead pack late in the race and swept Kenseth’s No. 20 Toyota off the track. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “Emotions were running high, but no punches were thrown in the Talladega garage area — this time.”

AP/RAINIER EHRHARDT

The good news: Junior avoided all the trouble at Talladega. The bad news: He was so far back, the late wrecks were practically over the horizon.

TALLADEGA REWIND

Following his first top-five finish, ’Dinger talks ’Dega They say everybody loves an underdog, and Talladega Superspeedway seems to bring out the best in the teams that otherwise have little or no chance at victory on a week-toweek basis. Talladega’s Cinderella story Sunday was AJ Allmendinger, who scored his first Top-five finish in the No. 47 Chevrolet. Allmendinger finished fifth, with his hopes of victory dashed by a last-lap yellow flag. ’Dinger was mobbed by the media after the 500-mile race.
