Creston Hy-Vee damaged by shotgun fire Suspect also unloaded three more shotgun slugs near the 400 block of New York Avenue in Creston. ■

Creston Police are actively searching for those responsible for a weekend shooting at Creston Hy-Vee. The first incident occurred about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Police say the suspects drove to the front of the grocery store and discharged at least one 12-gauge shotgun slug. The slug damaged pumpkins and broke the glass on a window

near the store’s entrance (pictured right) causing more than $1,000 damage. The suspect later unloaded three more Ver Meer shotgun slugs near the 400 block of New York Avenue — damaging two vehicles. Nobody was in the vehicles, nor was anyone injured during these shootings. “We’ve reviewed the surveillance video provided by HyVee,” said Creston Police Chief Paul Ver Meer, “and we are searching for those responsible.” If you have any information regarding this case, call the Creston Police Department at 641782-8402.

chs band show theme: butterfly effect

Change one thing, change everything By BAILEY POOLMAN

CNA staff reporter bpoolman@crestonnews.com

In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is based on the example of a butterfly flapping its wings, then weeks later a hurricane forms a distance from the animal. Creston High School Marching Band’s show, Butterfly Effect, takes that theory and creates a musical example using fast-moving formations and layers of music. “One thing will happen on the field, then another thing will happen, then another thing will hap- Peters pen, then another thing will happen, which will create ripple effects throughout the whole band,” said Mike Peters, CHS band director. “And, that’s what the whole show is kind of based off.” Peters explained the butterfly effect to his students by using the example of a gun maker who made pistols available to the common man. A man in Sarajevo, located in Bosnia and Herzegovina, was able to buy a pistol, then shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The assassina-

tion was the beginning of World War I. “There are a lot of bands that do shows like ‘Best of the Bee Gees,’ or ‘Earth, Wind and Fire.’ I’ve never liked those kinds of shows,” said Peters. “My style is, I want to get them into thinking more.” The performance involves three pieces of music. The music builds on itself with different instrument groups adding layers of music at different times. “Visually, you’ll see ripples. Musically, you’ll hear ripples,” Peters said. “And then, at one point, with a great big kick right in the middle of the show, the whole guard builds these huge butterfly wings. ... It’s really a pretty beautiful effect right at that point.” The Butterfly Effect also involves movements and shapes from the band members. “In the third tune, it’s just how fast can I make them run,” Peters said. “That is the chaos of the chaos theory.” CHS Marching Band will perform their first competition show Saturday in Clarinda for the Southwest Iowa Band Jamboree. Then, they will perform at Valleyfest in Des Moines Oct. 12. The band will also perform in the Iowa High School Music Association’s State Marching Band Festival in Council Bluffs Oct. 19.

QUICK NEWS

The Union County Freedom Rock was delivered to its final landing spot — Frank Phillips Visitor Center in Creston— Monday afternoon. Denny Abel, quartermaster for the Creston Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1797, said a concrete pad was recently poured at the visitor’s center, and the rock is parked next to it for now. “We are waiting for the con- Abel crete to cure,” Abel said. “We hope to have the rock in place on the concrete pad by Veterans Day on Nov. 11.” The 14-ton rock — donated by Dr. Bob and Denise Kuhl and the Travis Family — is bare right now, but will be painted by Ray “Bubba” Sorensen sometime in 2015. Abel said a committee will soon be formed to decide what will be painted on the Union County Freedom Rock.

Government shutdown

Congress plunged the nation into a partial government shutdown today as a dispute over President Barack Obama’s signature health care law reached a boiling point, forcing about 800,000 federal workers off the job. The dispute may also cost the economy about $1 billion a week. This is the first time the government has shut down in nearly 18 years. The last time it did, the stalemate lasted 21 days during the Clinton administration. See a full story on page 2A.

WASHINGTON (MCT) — The U.S. government started shutting down early Tuesday after a bitter fight over the new health care law deadlocked the Congress and stymied every attempt to keep money flowing after the federal fiscal year ended at midnight. It was the first such collapse of the government in nearly two decades and there was no immediate way to know how long it would last or how it would end. The partial closure will delay Social Security payments, passport and visa applications, shutter national parks and museums and furlough hundreds of thousands of federal employees. Essential services will still be provided; the military remains on duty. President Barack Obama declared the government had officially run out of money when the fiscal year expired at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. “Congress has not fulfilled its responsibility,” Obama said in a video message sent to the U.S. military around the globe. “It has failed to pass a budget and, as a result, much of our government must now shut down until Congress funds it again.” The White House Office of Management and Budget sent an alert to all executive branch government offices, telling

them to start implementing shutdown plans: “Agencies should now execute plans for an orderly shutdown due to the absence of appropriations.” The shutdown came after the Senate and the House of Representatives engaged in a high-stakes political showdown well into the night — sending bills back and forth across the Capitol — but never coming close to a deal. It was driven by House efforts to try to force a weakening of the new Affordable Care Act, all of which the Democrats rejected. “We believe we should fund the government” and that there should be changes in the new health care law, a drawn-looking House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters early Tuesday. He declined to answer questions about the shutdown. The Republican-controlled House voted 228-201 late Monday to fund the government for two months while delaying the new federal health care law’s mandate that Americans be required to have insurance and canceling health care subsidies for members of Congress. —————— ©2013 McClatchy Washington www.mcclatchydc.com Distributed by MCT Information Services

OPINION Fall feels different this year

FISHTRAP HOLLOW, Miss. — Fall feels different this year. For one thing, so far I’ve spent too much of it inside. I missed the Harvest Moon rising over the lake. I forgot to send Martha Hammond the first red leaf I saw along my road. My two old dogs still manage to hunt in the cool early mornings, but either they are slower or the squirrels quicker. I’m thinking it’s the former. I can’t help wondering when they’ll be over the bridge and beneath the rocks with Mabel and Hannah. Football, which used to consume me, seems this season to be broadcasting from a different planet. By rote I pull for Auburn and against Alabama, but that’s as natural as taking a breath. I can’t find the

King Features commentary Rheta Johnson

proper passion for either task. For the first time in my life, I don’t turn up the music on the sunlit porch in the afternoons. Is there an age of demarcation for really listening to music? Will I become one of those soulless persons who think of it as merely background noise? I surely hope not. I keep thinking about Jimmy Carter and his infamous use of the word “malaise.” He got into big trouble for even suggesting that as a nation we might feel it. But

then he also got into trouble for lowering the speed limit to save lives and for wearing a sweater. That was part of his popularity problem. He dealt in the truth. Never popular. I’m re-reading my friend Todd Johnson’s novel, “The Sweet By and By.” It is a wonderful book, full of pathos and humor, which seems to suit my mood. Most of the characters live or work in a nursing home. Health care has been much on my mind. I keep reading reports about Alabama and Mississippi and plenty of other states turning down billions of dollars in federal money to keep from expanding Medicaid to insure poor people and cooperating with the president.

The last part of that sentence is the key to understanding the insanity of turning down string-free funds to provide health care for the poorest citizens. It is political cowardice and lack of compassion. Candidates don’t want to be seen as cooperating with a black president. That’s the simple truth and the bottom line. “Scratch hard enough and you’ll find a racial angle to every story,” my late editor in Memphis once said to me. So far, four decades into my trade, he hasn’t been wrong. Why is it that the more a politician or a party professes to own the franchise on Christianity, the harder the attitude toward the poor? Makes no sense to me. Not in the Bible my grandmother believed. I guess we are moving from a fall

of frustration to a winter of discontent. There is no apparent remedy for hard human hearts. There is no prescription for nonchalant greed. I won’t stay in this senseless funk, this malaise. I’ll get bored with myself, find my favorite sweater with the moth holes, listen to Hank on the porch and give myself a fireside chat. My old dogs and I will howl at the Hunter’s Moon. *** To find out more about Rheta Grimsley Johnson and her books, visit www.rhetagrimsleyjohnsonbooks. com.

The George Washington Presidential Library opened at Mount Vernon HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? The George Washington Presidential Library opened at Mount Vernon Friday full of his books and letters. He’s more appreciated today than ever. George Washington is the only president in U.S. history who didn’t blame his troubles on the previous administration. Bill O’Reilly went on CBS’s 60 Minutes to publicize his new book, Killing Jesus. Reviews were predictable. Nobody’s even read it yet, and already the Republicans love Killing Jesus and the Democrats say Bill O’Reilly should be arrested for threatening the president. President Obama announced Friday he spoke with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani to negotiate a peaceful nuclear deal. We agreed to negotiations grudgingly. If the U.S. government shuts down Tuesday, there may be a freeze on all new wars in the Middle East. The U.S. faced a government shutdown over Congress’ refusal to fund ObamaCare and the president’s refusal to negotiate. It left Americans asking three questions. Who will inspect the chickens, who will direct air traffic, and who will put us sixteen trillion in debt? The U.S. Senate held hearings Thursday on ways to curtail the NSA. They’re really out of hand. Last week in a restaurant a little boy told President Obama that his daddy told him that the NSA spies

on their family online, and Obama told the boy that’s not his daddy. Newark mayor and New Jersey U.S. Senate hopeful Corey Booker was caught tweeting with a stripper who performs in Oregon Friday. They’re a perfect match. He represents a workingclass state and the last thing an Oregon stripper takes off are her bowling shoes. California park rangers found three hundred tons of pot growing in a forest guarded by bears. Now it all makes sense. Bears sleep three months a year, all you ever see them doing is rummaging through the trash looking for food, and their leader’s name is Smokey. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell proposed a plan to implement blood tests for NFL players to test them for Human Growth Hormone. The players will never agree to it. NFL players think there’s a time and place for blood tests, and that’s at their murder trials. O.J. Simpson was caught stealing oatmeal cookies from the prison cafeteria, which runs up his tab to double-murder, armed robbery, and now cookie theft. He’s now three hundred pounds. Last night O.J. Simpson asked for the death penalty, just for the last meal.

Why the delay of approximately two months and no word from our supervisors? We are told because of the Iowa Legislature’s laws and governor’s signature of such laws the supervisors can’t help us stop the large confinements and feedlots in our neighborhoods. Does that mean they should keep secret public notices of spills? What do you think?

of a manure spill east of Creston. When the hog confinement filed its construction permit, it promised to knife in the manure the same day it was spread. The manure was not knifed in the same day it was spread. On Aug. 2, the Union County Board of Supervisors was notified that the manure applicator that spread the manure was not certified.

The annual CROP Hunger Walk will take place Sunday. Area churches have been busy recruiting walkers, and those walkers have been busy collecting pledges and contributions. The walk is sponsored by the Union County Ministerial Alliance and 25 percent of what is raised will stay in Union County to help our residents who need assistance with food and other emergencies. Thrivent Financial has promised up to $600 in matching funds. Christian Rural Overseas Program (CROP) began in 1946.

What makes CROP stand out from other international fundraisers is in educating people so that they may learn to be self-sufficient. This is not just a handout program. CROP sponsors many classes and programs to make a difference in people’s lives and in their futures. CROP changes lives, and I would like to invite all of Union County to meet us at the gazebo just south of the Medical Arts Complex in Creston at 2:30 p.m. Sunday for registration. The walk begins at 3 p.m. This year’s participants will receive an “I’m walking for...” card that will give a brief story of an individual who has been helped by CROP. The cards should inspire

events and droves of people for the downtown parade. We just want to say thank you to the community for planning such a wonderful event. Also, a shout out to the great wait staff and volunteers at the Elks Club for the great food. We had a wonderful time. It was truly a pleasure to visit Creston; you should all be proud of your beautiful town. See you next year.

every walker. Please bring a canned food item for our local MATURA food pantry and/or a monetary donation. We walk because so many have to walk miles for food and water. If you can’t make it to the walk, volunteers will be stationed at Fareway and Hy-Vee Saturday to collect donations of money and canned goods. Many thanks to HyVee and Fareway for providing apples and bottled water for the walk. Let’s make this walk the best one ever in our county and top last year’s record of $7,058.84. Millions of people worldwide are counting on us.

PHILADELPHIA — Four years ago, Jacqueline Horne lost her job as a business agent for a union and became a regular shopper at the Dollar General store in Pennsauken, N.J. On a recent visit, the 46-year-old mother of two, who now works part time at a Wal-Mart store, bought cleanser for 50 cents, candy for $1, press-on nails for $1 (she said she can’t afford to get her nails done), and spices for $2.25, the most expensive item in her cart. “Actually, it turns out to be cheaper,” Horne said of items at the Dollar General at 3400 Haddonfield Rd., on the border of Pennsauken and Cherry Hill. “When you’re on a budget in this economy, you watch everything. “They really do have everything you need.” Horne is a typical Dollar General customer — annual household income of $40,000 or less, cost-conscious, loyal — and part of why the company is undergoing a major expansion nationwide. A total of 650 new stores will open this year. Though shoppers like Robinson are sold on DG’s prices, the Goodlettsville, Tenn., company has flourished not just in bad economic times and a tight labor market. Dollar General Corp. has had 23 consecutive years of same-store sales growth (stores open a year or more) — about a third of the company’s 75year history. Economists say that as long as Dollar General gives

the “impression” of cheaper prices, the stores will continue to do well. “These stores obviously flourish when the economy is weak or growth is slow,” said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors Inc. and an Inquirer business columnist. “In the current environment, where incomes are flat, (consumers) hold out hope that spending power can be maintained. “But the stores are also a good place to go for lowand middle-income households who don’t want to pay even Wal-Mart prices for goods,” he said. The formula has resonated well: Open in convenient, highly accessible locations, keep the stores well-stocked with name-brand merchandise, and stay open late (10 p.m. at most locations Mondays through Sundays). Dollar General grossed $16.02 billion in sales companywide for the fiscal year that ran from Feb. 1, 2012, to Jan. 31, topping the previous fiscal year’s $14.81 billion. The first Dollar General opened in Scottsville, Ky., in 1955, and the company has been adding stores at a rapid clip since. It is now the largest discount retailer in the United States based on number of stores — more than 10,700 in 40 states. “We have research that shows our customers come to us within a three- to five-mile radius or within a 10-minute drive,” company spokeswoman Crystal Ghassemi said. “Our cus-

tomers look for value and convenience. “When we look at opportunities and locations to open new stores, we look at convenience, competitive factors in an area, traffic (patterns), and demographics of the community to make sure it will support the store.” The company is expanding heavily in the Northeastern United States. A $120 million distribution center will open in Bethel, Pa., at the end of the year. The store’s trademark sign is no frills — “Dollar General” with a yellow background. On its website, the company boasts of how it saves shoppers time and money.

“Their stuff is awesome,” John Scalzo, 50, of Pennsauken, said Friday as he filled his cart with boxes of cereal, milk, and trash bags at one of two DGs in Pennsauken. “It’s all name-brand stuff, and that’s what’s amazing.” Scalzo, who supplies food

and other items to ships, is a comparison shopper. He picked up a 200-yard box of Glad cling wrap for $3. “It’s $4.25 at other regular supermarkets,” he said. The box of Cheerios? “$2.50 here and $4.65 at ShopRite,” he said without pausing.

Coupon conundrum Dear Heloise: I do not have a computer at home, but I use the one at our LOCAL LIBRARY. However, we cannot print coupons from it. The few we receive in our daily paper are for pet food and cosmetics. Help! Is there any other way to obtain food coupons? — Pat N., via email Pat, yes there is, and while online at the library, you can contact the manufacturers of your favorite products by emailing them. Just a comment (with the name of the product) can bring oodles of coupons to you. Look for the “contact us” link (typically at the bottom of the page), and leave your name and mailing address. You may get coupons without even asking or by taking a small survey about the website when asked. The other hint is to call the manufacturers of items you use the most. Many products have a toll-free number for customer service, and you can ask for coupons to be sent to you via postal mail. Also check your grocery store. Most have a coupon area or display board for customers. If you don’t see such a place, just ask! — Heloise BIRD SAFETY Dear Readers: Birds are

wonderful pets to have, but did you know that they should be kept out of the kitchen or breakfast nook all the time? A kitchen can be a dangerous place for our feathered friends, as they have very sensitive respiratory systems. Cooking can create smoke and grease, which causes difficulty in a bird’s breathing. Always ventilate the kitchen by opening a window or turning on the exhaust fan while cooking, which is good for you, too! Cookware can overheat and send toxic fumes into the air — not good for the bird! So, what is the best location for your bird and its cage? Try placing your bird in a den or living room — somewhere in the house where you spend some time each day. Or, bring the bird into the kitchen when NOT cooking. Two cages would work perfectly. Be aware that additional stresses to birds are tempera(c)2013 by King Features ture changes and numerous people walking past where Syndicate Inc. BLONDIE®

DOUBLE CHAMPIONSHIP Panthers claim varsity titles at O-M

Home runs in regular-season finales by Evan Longoria, one more Longoria than the previous record held by Stan Musial.

National Digest

Rays win ARLINGTON, Texas — The first person David Price looked for after pitching the Tampa Bay Rays into the playoffs was third baseman Evan Longoria. Price yelled after the two locked eyes, and they embraced to start the celebration. “He just told me that he had a dream about it,” Longoria said. “It was awesome to feel that emotion from him. That’s what an ace does, that’s what a leader of a staff does. It was awesome to watch.” Price, Longoria and the Tampa Bay Rays are going to playoffs again, getting there with a victory in their final regular-season game for the second time in three years. They needed an extra game this time. Price pitched his fourth complete game this year, Longoria hit a two-run homer and the Rays beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 in the AL wild-card tiebreaker game Monday night, the 163rd game for both teams. The Rays face another must-win situation Wednesday night at Cleveland in the AL wild-card game, Tampa’s third game in three cities in a four-day stretch. The winner faces Boston in the division series.

Saints 4-0 NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees made his latest claim to the moniker of Mr. Monday Night. He also gave the Miami Dolphins another reason to regret not making a harder push to sign him when they had the chance seven years ago. Brees passed for 413 yards and four touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints turned a clash of unbeaten teams into a lopsided affair, beating Miami 38-17 on Monday night. ‘’I felt like we found our rhythm,’’ Brees said. Two of Brees’ touchdowns went to Jimmy Graham for 27 and 43 yards as the tight end had at least 100 yards receiving for the third straight game. Brees’ other scoring strikes went to Benjamin Watson and Darren Sproles, who also rushed for a touchdown.

ORIENT — The Creston cross country teams nearly pulled off the clean sweep here Monday at the Orient-Macksburg Invitational. The Panthers swept the varsity team titles, and took home the individual crowns in the boys varsity, boys junior varsity and girls junior varsity races. “This is the first time in at least 25 years we’ve had a clean sweep of the team titles for varsity at any meet,” head coach Pat Schlapia said. “We had three out of the four individual champions. That hasn’t happened in 25 years.” The Creston girls varsity picked up its first meet win of the season, edging out West Central Valley by 11 points, 76-87, for the team title. Meanwhile, the Creston boys varsity rolled to a 47-point win over second-place Nodaway Valley, 3582. On top of that, Creston sophomore Cooper McDermott won the individual title in the boys varsity race, running away from Mount Ayr senior Noah Larsen in the final three-quarters of a mile to post the win in 17:26 for the 5K course. Senior Zack Peppmeier won the

JV boys race with a time of 20:22, which was also good enough to move him up to the varsity team for Thursday’s meet at Perry. Savannah Hartman won the JV girls race with her time of 19:21 over the 4K course at Lake Orient.

Close race The team race in the varsity girls division was close, but Creston’s depth prevailed over West Central Valley. “It was a nice surprise with the girls winning,” Schlapia said. “We were wanting to shoot for first. As the runners were coming in with 200 meters to go, I was figuring maybe West Central Valley or Audubon — I wouldn’t have been too surprised to see either of them win it.” But the Panthers placed their top five all within the top 22 of the race, led by Maria Mostek’s fourth-place performance in 16:45. Mostek closely trailed Nodaway Valley’s Destiny Scar for much of the first half of the race, before Scar pulled away in the final three-quarters of a mile. “Maria, I feel she got out stronger,” Schlapia said. “The first half was stronger than it was last week. She ran a good race with Scar. I feel she ran more focused.” Also scoring for Creston was Taylor Briley in 11th at 17:48, Raegen

Morris honored IOWA CITY — Iowa linebacker James Morris is the Big Ten Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week. Morris recorded eight tackles, one sack and one interception in Iowa’s 23-7 win over Minnesota on Saturday. Morris’s interception came in the fourth quarter, allowing the Hawkeyes to run out the clock while Morris was part of a defense that held the Gophers to 30 yards rushing.

Smith in 19th at 18:31, Jessica Beatty in 20th at 18:36 and Madison Hance in 22nd at 18:43. West Central Valley’s top finisher came in eighth, with its scoring fifth member running in 31st place, giving Creston the edge. “Raegen Smith, this was her best race of the season,” Schlapia said. “She jumped all the way up to third for us. She was our seventh runner coming into this. That was nice for her to Smith move up. Jessica Beatty has been pretty consistent for us all year. So has Madison Hance.”

Second win The Creston boys varsity posted its second team win of the season. The Panthers have a streak over the past four meets of placing either first or second in the team standings. “That was exciting to see the boys get their second win of the season,” Schlapia said. “That comes at a very important time right now.” McDermott led the way in 17:26, being pushed by Larsen for much of

the race, before taking control late and pulling away. “It was a good battle,” Schlapia said. “Him and Noah were together from the get-go. They were shoulder-to-shoulder through at least the first two miles.” The Panthers placed four runners in the top 10 individually, as Jay Wolfe took fourth in 18:14, Ben Irr finished fifth in 18:30 and Garret Taylor claimed eighth in 18:44. Kruz Adamson rounded out the scoring for the Panthers with a 17thplace finish in 19:51. “We were wanting our top four to be in the top 10,” Schlapia said. “Those three were pretty close to each other. Kruz ran his best race. It was nice to see Kruz pick up the slack and move up to number five for us.” Adamson

The Panthers also had a successful night in the JV races.

Northwest Missouri State defensive end Collin Bevins of Creston causes Nebraska-Kearney quarterback Bronson Marsh to fumble Saturday afternoon at Bearcat Stadium. Northwest defensive end Matt Longacre scooped up the ball and scored on the play in Northwest’s 53-7 victory. Bevins also had two tackles for losses. Linebacker DJ Gnader of Lewis Central and defensive tackle Perry Hummel of Clarinda were other key members of the Bearcats’ defensive effort.

Perry shut out the Creston/O-M JV 17-0 Monday night, after the Panther freshmen fought from behind to squeeze out an 8-6 victory over the Bluejay freshmen Friday night. Coach Kevin Cooper said the Panther JV faced an uphill battle after a slow start Monday night on the Bluejays’ field. On top of that, freshman Brody Frain was called into quarterback duty in the fourth quarter after sophomore Josh Reed was injured making a tackle. Information on Reed’s status was not available at press time. Reed is the second high school quarterback injured in the past four days, as varsity backup Alex Nielsen injured an ankle Friday. That leaves senior starter Brandon Phipps and freshmen Frain and Seth Thompson until the team’s health improves. The Panther JV’s offense had trouble mounting consistent drives against Perry, which scored on its first possession to go in front, 7-0. Just 4.2 seconds before

halftime, Perry scored on a 50-yard pass play to take a 14-0 lead into the break. A 25-yard field goal in the third quarter accounted for the game’s final points. “Tonight was a tough night for us against a very good Perry team,” Cooper said. “We started out slow in the first quarter and it was an uphill battle the rest of the game. I felt like we stepped it up in the second half, and had our chances on their end of the field, but just couldn’t convert.” Creston/O-M (1-3) hosts Harlan next Monday.

Close game Friday’s freshman battle was one of frustration in the first half for the Panthers. The Bluejays used a ballcontrol offense to dominate possession time and take a 6-0 lead into halftime. At the break, Creston/OM running back Chase Shiltz had eight carries for 25 yards. He followed in the second half with 15 carries for 181 yards and a touchdown. Shiltz scored on a 3-yard run in the third quarter, and

added the two-point conversion run for the winning margin. Coach Jon Thomson said the defense did a better job of halting Perry’s inside running attack in the second half, and the offense made adjustments, too. Some personnel changes had to be made with the absence of Cody Tanner, Quinton Scadden and Kyle Somers, who suffered a neck injury earlier in the week. “We had some kids play in some spots they don’t normally play,” Thomson said. “Tyler Peters played a great game at our other Z (wide receiver) position. He had a catch and some great blocks. Kadon Hulett was moved from guard to center. Keaton Eslinger, coming off a hand injury, really stepped things up at guard and nose position with great kickout blocks and key tackles in the backfield. Will Gordon stepped into the other guard position.” Overall, Thomson said a
