HUSH program helps distribute more than 10,000 pounds of deer meat to local families in need ■

By JAKE WADDINGHAM CNA staff reporter

Despite the program’s name, HUSH is not something the Iowa Department of Natural Resources want area hunters to keep quiet about this hunting season. HUSH — Help Us Stop Hunger — is a combined effort to provide quality red meat to those in need and help control the deer population in the state. This is the 11th year for the program. “HUSH is a simple process from the hunter’s standpoint,” said Iowa DNR HUSH coordinator Jim Coffey. “It is a program that our deer hunters have asked for and the Food Bank of Iowa is just thrilled with it.” Hunters must take a buck or doe legally, tag it, then transport it to one of 88 participating meat lockers in Iowa. Once the locker approves the deer, all the hunter has to do is sign a HUSH card, allowing the processor to connect with the Food Bank of Iowa to combat

hunger. The closest participating lockers are Corning Meat Processing and Zeb’s Smokehouse in Bedford. “We normally end up with about 300 donations, last year we were in the 200s,” said Dave Walter, the owner of Corning Meat Processing. “It has been a great experience. Since it began in 2004, we have been near the top in number of donations and pounds.” Last hunting season, 5,281 deer were donated to HUSH, generating about 880,000 meals for Iowa families in need. While the total donations were down last year, Coffey

said it is consistent with the decline of the total deer herd in the state. But even though the total deer herd may be smaller, overpopulation is still occurring in rural parts of the state.

Making donations

Hunters who wish to use the meat for personal use are still contributing to HUSH in an indirect manner. Each tag has a $1 charge to help fund the program. “That is the beauty of the HUSH program,” Coffey said. “There is a local connection and it is distributed right back into the community.” The locker receives $75 for each processed deer and the Food Bank of Iowa gets $5 ad-

ministrative cost for each deer distributed. The $1 charge to each tag helps cover the expense. Walter said it takes about 15 minutes to prep a deer that has been donated to HUSH. Corning Meat Processing is connected with the Presbyterian church in Creston and the MATURA office in Corning to help get the meat to those in need. Last year more than 10,000 pounds of red meat were distributed. “It blew my mind the number of people that needed it (the meat),” Walter said. Matt Carr, 22, hunts in Ringgold, Union and Adair counties during bow and late muzzleloader season. He has donated to HUSH an estimated 15 times since he started hunting. “I like deer hunting, but we don’t eat a lot of deer (meat),” Carr said. “It gives me a place to take the meat to help feed less fortunate families and it helps take more does out of the herd.” Coffey said hunters should contact the locker where plan they to donate. Most of the time the only requirement is to field dress the kill, but accepting the meat is at the locker’s Please see HUSH, Page 2

The inaugural uptown Creston Food Crawl is slated 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday. The event will include samples of culinary delights, live music and a chance to meet local farmers and growers. “This is a family friendly event,” said Alexi Groumoutis, local foods coordinator for the Southern Iowa Local Food Council. “It’s my goal to introduce the community to local farmers and also implement local foods into institutions. It’s taking a step beyond going to the farmers’ market. We want businesses to use locally-sourced Groumoutis foods.” Five businesses are participating in the event. They include: Creston Chamber of Commerce, Upper Crust Bakery, making sweet potato créme brule with walnuts, A&G Pizza Steakhouse with spinach alfredo pizza, Adams Street Espresso with hot apple cider or pumpkin frappucino and Elm’s Club with cheese steak sliders with green peppers and onions. Tickets are $10, and are available now at any participating business. For more information, contact Groumoutis at 515-447-3952.

Government shutdown

WASHINGTON — Washington is deadlocked as it enters the 14th day of a partial government shutdown. The crisis has already led to furloughs of 350,000 federal workers, canceled military training missions and slowed economic growth. NBC reports multiple talks be- Obama tween Republican congressional leaders and President Barack Obama took place over the past two weeks, and negotiations are now focused on Senate leadership from both sides of the aisle. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell launched last-ditch negotiations over the weekend to end the spending and debt stalemate, but they may not be able to reach an agreement that can pass both the House and Senate.

The number of gametying grand slam home runs in postseason history after David Ortiz’s Sunday night.

CNA sports writer •

National Digest

Sox revive BOSTON — David Ortiz revived the Red Sox with a tying grand slam in the eighth inning, then Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a winning single in the ninth as Boston stunned the Detroit Tigers 6-5 Sunday night to even the AL championship series at 1-all. The Tigers were cruising to their second straight win at Fenway Park, with starter Max Scherzer taking a no-hitter and a 5-0 lead into the sixth inning. But with one swing, Big Papi flipped everything. Ortiz hit a two-out shot that sent right fielder Torii Hunter jack-knifing into the Boston bullpen in a futile attempt to catch the ball, making it 5-up. Saltalamacchia’s single came after a series of Tigers misplays in the ninth. A wild throw, a wild pitch and a missed catch by first baseman Prince Fielder on a foul ball set up the game-ending hit. The teams head to Detroit for Game 3 on Tuesday. Justin Verlander will face Boston’s John Lackey.

With their backs against the wall in terms of playoff qualification, the Creston/O-M Panthers responded in a big way Friday with a 49-21 victory over Glenwood. The win improves the Panthers to 3-2 in Class 3A District 1 — now in the position of trying to move up within the top four spots with a victory over Lewis Central in two weeks — and 5-2 overall. Glenwood falls out of contention at 1-3 in district play and 3-4 overall. Meanwhile, Harlan handed Lewis Central its first district loss with a 24-14 victory in a battle for first place.

Perry defeated Atlantic 4827 in a game involving teams at the bottom of the standings, and ADM traveled out of the district in a 45-28 loss to Newton. So, while Harlan leads the district at 4-0, LC and ADM are tied for second at 3-1, with Creston/O-M fourth at 3-2. LC still has games against Glenwood and Creston/O-M, while ADM faces Perry and Harlan. If Creston/O-M beats LC, a possible logjam of teams at 4-2 could come down to the point differential tiebreaker to determine placings, if none of the teams own victories over each of the others. This week, the Panthers play a non-district game at home against Winterset (3-

4), a 56-37 loser Friday to Oskaloosa.

Fast start The Panthers set the tone early Friday night by scoring on their first play from scrimmage. Taking a direct snap, Trevor Frain bolted 55 yards on a trap play for the game’s first touchdown. Frain was alone in the backfield taking a direct snap, as quarterback Brandon Phipps went in motion. That action left a hole in the Rams’ defense. “They were in man coverage, and when Brandon went outside, their middle linebacker chased him,” Frain said. “So, they had no linebackers there at all. I had a hole I could get three people through.”

Both Frain and Phipps said the play was successful despite a mixup at the line of scrimmage. “Some linemen were asking, was it 31 trap or 30 trap?” Phipps said. “So, they ended up blocking the wrong way. But the middle was wide open. Coach (Darrell) Frain made a good call.” From that point on, Glenwood was playing from behind the entire night. Frain also scored on a 15yard run and 15-yard pass from Phipps as the Panthers took a 21-0 lead. He went left on the short-yardage “tank” formation behind lead blockers Adam Baker and Wyatt Thompson, and used some deception for the pass reception.

Chiefs rolling KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Chiefs defense had 10 sacks and three interceptions in a 24-7 win over the Oakland Raiders, improving the Chiefs to 6-0. Jamaal Charles rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns while Alex Smith passed for 128 yards. All three Pryor interceptions led to Kansas City points including Husain Abduallah’s 44-yard return for a touchdown for the final margin. Pryor threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Denarius Moore that gave Oakland (2-4) a 7-0 lead in the second quarter. The Chiefs snapped a six-game home losing streak to the Raiders and are 6-0 for the first time since a 9-0 start in 2003. The Chiefs did it in front of a crowd that set the world record for loudest outdoor arena.

“Everybody flew to the pitch man (Adam Baker),” Phipps said. “It was a naked (bootleg) and Frain just chip blocked for a second and then was wide open. They had a guy blitzing.” It became 28-0 on a 5-yard run by Baker, the first of his three touchdowns. Baker finished with 140 yards rushing on 17 carries. He later scored on runs of 66 and 24 yards. “On the 66-yarder, right when he hit the hole I just threw my arms up in the air,” Phipps said. “I knew that was a touchdown. That 25 kid (Spencer Smith) was fast for them, and he outran Please see PANTHERS, page 7A

Intense Panthers understood consequences By LARRY PETERSON

CNA sports writer •

Creston/O-M senior Maxx Walters had a busy night, covering Glenwood’s deep passing threat (Brandon Bichel) and running pass routes for the Panther offense. But there was work done before the Panthers even took the field, Walters said, to set the mindset of urgency felt by this year’s seniors. A loss likely would knock Creston/O-M out of the playoff hunt.

Cowboys win ARLINGTON, Texas — Dwayne Harris returned a punt 86 yards for a touchdown and set up another score with a 90-yard kickoff return as the Dallas Cowboys handed Robert Griffin III his first loss in his home state with a 3116 victory against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. Tony Romo had just 170 yards passing a week after getting 506 in a wild 51-48 loss to Denver. That’s because Harris had 222 total return yards and Kyle Wilber forced and recovered a fumble on a sack of Griffin that left the Cowboys needing just 3 yards for a clinching score in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys (3-3) gave owner Jerry Jones a win on his 71st birthday over the Redskins (1-4).

Wolverines clip Cardinals in district win By JAKE WADDINGHAM

CNA staff reporter • jwaddingham@crestonnews. com

GREENFIELD — Nodaway Valley kept the clock rolling here Friday night with a grinding ground game, defeating Treynor 35-16 in Class 1A District 8 action. The Wolverines carried the ball 54 times for 256 yards. Senior runningback Zach Brewer handled a majority of the carries, rushing for 242 yards. “That’s what we want to do, establish that run first, grind clock,” said NV head coach Steve Shantz. “If we have to, we can throw the ball a little bit.” Brewer found the end zone from 3 yards out to cap off Nodaway Valley’s first offensive possession in the contest, 7-0. He came back late in the second quarter to push the Wolverines ahead by another touchdown, but a missed extra point attempt left NV leading Treynor 13-0. “Their offensive and defensive lines really executed well,” said Treynor head coach Steve Owens. “They had sound technique and they were more physical.” The Cardinals were able to drive into field goal range with 25 seconds remaining in the first half. Ben Chapin punched it through the uprights to put Treynor on the board before halftime, 13-3. “It was one of those team defense type things where we wanted to make sure we got the edge taken care of,” Shantz said.


Nodaway Valley running back Zach Brewer (21) breaks a tackle Friday night against Treynor. The senior carried the ball 38 times and rushed for 242 yards in the 35-16 win.

While the ground game was the core of NV’s strategy, quarterback Jackson Lamb was able to connect with TJ Bower and Baley Shantz for drive-saving pass plays. Bower averaged 21.3 yards per catch and totaled 64 yards. B a l e y Shantz went for 26 yards and a Bower touchd o w n grab. Lamb finished 6-of-9 passing for 114 yards. “Bower just went up and got them,” Shantz said.

Brewer scored his third and fourth touchdowns of the game in the third and fourth quarters, highlighted by a 48-yard rush to increase the lead to 35-3. Shantz said the defense did a good job shutting down the Cardinals’ big playmakers, Dane Livengood and Trey Robinson. Treynor pieced together two touchdown drives. Robinson went 18-yards for a score with 4:12 remaining in the game. The late scores did not threaten the Wolverine lead, however, and NV earned the 35-16 win. The Wolverines improved to 4-1 in Class 1A District 8 play this season and 4-3 overall. They face

a tough opponent next week, hosting Council Bluff St. Albert, the district leader at 4-0 in the district. The Falcons are 7-0 this season and they are coming off of a 31-12 victory over Red Oak. While the top four teams advance to a spot in the playoffs, a win over St. Alberts would give the Wolverines a chance to share or win the district title.

Area football Mount Ayr 34, Central Decatur 13 LEON — Mount Ayr forced seven Central Decatur turnovers, helping the Raiders to a 34-13 win over the Cardinals here on Friday. The Raiders picked off CD sophomore quarterback Peyton Pedersen five times and also recovered two fumbles. The five interceptions give Mount Ayr 18 for the season, breaking the school’s single season record. Erik Freed picked Pedersen off three times, while Dolecheck finished with two interceptions, giving him seven for the season, which places him tied for second in Class 1A. “Our defensive secondary is doing a fantastic job,” cohead coach Delwyn Showalter said. “Coach Rinehart and coach Weeda have really worked those guys hard. They’re making some phenomenal plays.” Dolecheck also caught two touchdown passes in the game — one from Jacob Sobotka and one from Jacob Taylor — leading the team with three catches for 102 yards. Freed led the team in rushing with 78 yards, while Riley Weehler picked up 63 yards on the ground. Weehler led the defense with 10 total tackles, while Cody Stackhouse and Caleb Schnoor each finished with nine total tackles. Stackhouse had two sacks, while Tucker Winemiller and Joe Ricker each recorded one sack, as well. Mount Ayr, now 6-1 overall and 3-1 in Class 1A District 7, hosts Ogden on Friday for the team’s senior night and Pink Out event. The game also has big implications for district seeding, as the winner will move into sole possession of second place for the time being.

Exira/EHK 68, Southwest Valley 13 CORNING — Exira/ EHK showed why it’s the No. 1 team in the state for Eight-Man here on Friday, rolling through Southwest Valley, 68-13. The combination of Trey Sander and Drew Peppers proved to be tough to stop, as the pair combined for 311 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns. Sander also had punt returns of 64 and 60 yards for touchdowns.

“They’re a very good football team,” Southwest Valley head coach Kent Bass said. “Not a lot of weaknesses. Our overall effort early was up to our liking, but on a snap for snap consistency basis, they were just better than we were.” The Spartans held a powerful Southwest Valley rushing attack to just 114 yards on the ground, led by Jordan Stuart’s 55 yards. Zach Barton added 30 yards. They each punched one into the end zone for a touchdown in the loss. “As the playoffs approach, a game like this shows in a playoff atmosphere, every mistake is magnified,” Bass said. “Good teams are going to take advantage of mistakes every time, so limit mistakes.” Southwest Valley (5-2 overall and 4-1 in EightMan District 8) travels to Fremont-Mills (6-1, 5-0) in a game that could potentially cause a three-way tie atop the district standings with a Southwest Valley win. “A big game in the district, obviously,” Bass said. “Fremont has some big, physical kids again. We’ve got to make sure we do our job and trust the kid next to us to do his.”

Trevor Barnett carried 26 times for 110 yards, while Mike Ward and Cole Campbell added 52 and 51 yards, respectively. Campbell scored two touchdowns on the ground for the Eagles, now 2-6 overall and 1-4 in Eight Man District 6. “We have done a lot of rushing,” East Union head coach Steve Kinyon said. “The problem is, when you rush, you don’t always get that quick score you need. We were pounding the ball, and just couldn’t get the ball in the end zone.” Mormon Trail built a 22-6 lead by halftime and held on in the second half for the 3012 win. Jakob Horton carried the ball 26 times for 205 yards and four touchdowns for Mormon Trail, which improves to 2-4 overall and 2-3 in District 6. Mike Ward led the Eagles

with 16 total tackles, including three solo tackles for loss and one solo sack. Barnett and Brandon Wittstock each recorded 11 total tackles. Kyle Seales recovered a fumble. “The played hard,” Kinyon said about his team. “I watched the film about three times now and it just comes back to little things, and we’ll have to do the little things in order to get better. That’s what it amounts to.” East Union hosts Murray (6-2, 4-1) on Friday. “They have a pretty good rushing attack,” Kinyon said. “Their special teams are really good. We have to be ready for that.”

Murray 51, Colo-Nesco 18 MURRAY — Murray stayed in contention for second place in Eight-Man District 6 with a 51-18 victory over Colo-Nesco to close out the home portion of the regular season Friday. Murray improved to 6-2 overall and 4-1 in district play, while Colo-Nesco fell to 2-6 and 2-4. It was the final regular season appearance at Mustang Field for seniors Cole Weir, Tyler Cashman, Collin Titus, Alex Shaw, Sam Rockhold, Andrew Rider, George Barber and man-

ager Dakota Matlage. Rider surpassed 1,000 yards rushing in a season for the second time in his career. He had 1,072 yards as a sophomore and 851 last year when his season was cut short by injury. Rider rushed for 169 yards and four touchdowns on 14 carries. Seth Nerness carried 10 times for 82 yards and two TDs. Rockhold opened the scoring with a 40-yard run. “It wasn’t our sharpest game of the year, but we ran the ball well and the victory kept us in position to capture second place in the district,” said coach Keith Shields. Thane Simmons mixed in 64 yards passing on 6-of-11 with no interceptions. Leading the defensive charge was Barber with 14 total tackles, including seven for losses and a quarterback sack. Nerness had two tackles for losses with a fumble recovery, and Rockhold had nine tackles with an interception. “Other than one long run in the first quarter, our defense did a great job of stopping the Colo-Nesco offense in the first half,” Shields said. “They had one 58-yard run, but only had 54 yards of offense on 25 plays the rest of the half. Our run defense played well in the second half, giving up 38 yards on 21 carries.” The Mustangs play at East Union (2-6, 1-4) this week.

him.” Frain finished with 67 yards rushing on seven carries. While the Panthers relied mostly on a running attack and special teams plays, Phipps finished 6-of8 passing for 48 yards and one TD.

Ram catalyst Quarterback Corey Bertini was the catalyst for the Rams, compiling 160 yards rushing and two touchdowns and also passing for 155 yards and a TD. But, right after his second TD cut the Panther lead to

28-14 in the third quarter, Bryce Briley fielded the Glenwood kickoff and raced 95 yards up the left side for a touchdown to make it Briley 35-14. “There was a seam up the left side,” Briley said. “I didn’t look back or anything. I didn’t want anyone to catch me.” Later in the third quarter, Tayler Pettit pressured Bertini on two consecutive


Linebacker Gavin Leith (8) of Creston/O-M returns an interception in the second half of Creston/O-M’s 49-21 victory Friday. The Rams had 393 yards of total offense, but suffered from two interceptions and a lost fumble. Leith also had 10 total tackles and a fumble recovery.

plays, followed by an interception by Gavin Leith. On the very next play from scrimmage, Baker raced 66 yards to make it 42-14. Baker’s 24-yard TD scamper in the f o u r t h Baker quarter accounted for the final score at 49-21 after Bertini had thrown to Gage Shatava for a touchdown. Briley also had an interception and 22-yard return in the game. Frain had 17 total tackles and Levi Eblen, switching from outside linebacker to inside linebacker in the absence of Eblen Seth Maitlen from injury, accounted for 15 total tackles. Head coach Brian Morrison said Eblen was a quick study at the new position, as Seth Maitlen was held out with an ankle injury. It was a tough task, as this Ram offense posted 38 points against ADM and 24 against district leader Harlan. “We had a kid who had an hour and a half to learn how to play inside linebacker, and I thought he did a heck of a job,” Mor-

rison said. “Especially against that run game. Every game they’ve played has a been a track meet. They’re explosive. Our job was to keep the ball in front of us, and I thought we did a good job of that.” Conner Pals was 7-of-7 on extra points to successfully cap all of the Panther scoring drives. Morrison said it was a good night for the offense, as well. “Our offensive game plan was right on,” he said. “Our assistants did a heck of a job throughout the week, coaching our kids up, and the kids executed tonight. Our kids played smart and played hard.”

No letdown After each of the scores while building a 28-0 lead during the first half, the coaches stepped up their intensity to remind the players to maintain their focus, saying “(play like) it’s 0-0!” “We’re trying to not change the mindset of our players,” Morrison said. “We tell them not to relax, because when you relax bad things happen. That’s a mentality we’re trying to teach.” On the other side of the field, Glenwood coach Cory Faust was disappointed. The 1997 graduate of Nodaway Valley, a highly successful coach at AHST before taking over the Rams, said everyone in the program has to get better.

“You have to credit Creston,” Faust said. “They have a good team and they do a nice job. On offense, we had some breakdowns in pass protection and we put the ball on the ground a lot. We’re really struggling to stop



the run on defense. We’re just not playing very well right now, and we have to coach better. Have to play better.” Glenwood finishes with home games against Lewis Central and Atlantic.

CONSEQUENCES: Continued from page 5A

“It means everything to us,” Walters said. “This team is family. We knew the consequences if we lost. There were heart-to-heart talks in the locker room. We said, play for us, but play for yourselves, too. You’re never going to get this back.” Phipps said the seniors have talked for years about making a playoff run. The program’s postseason appearances the past two years have ended in open-

ing-round defeats. “We’ve all had this dream of being state champions,” quarterback Brandon Phipps said, “and one step is making the playoffs. We’ve had a couple of tough games. Last week (34-7 loss at Harlan) kind of lit a fire under us, really. It motivated us to come out and show that we’re not a bad team. We’re a dang good team when we play together, and that’s what we did.” Coach Brian Morrison said the team is overcom-

Spartans 3-1 at DMACC Invite BOONE — Southwestern’s volleyball team continued its winning ways with a 3-1 mark at the DMACC Invitational over the weekend. On Friday the Spartans defeated Highland (Kan.) 25-18, 25-8, 25-21 before sweeping Kishwaukee (Ill.) 25-21, 25-11, 25-11. No. 2-ranked Parkland (Ill.) Community College defeated SWCC Saturday, 25-18, 25-13, 23-25, 25-18. The Spartans finished the event victorious over North Dakota School of Science 25-15, 25-20, 25-17. The Spartans take a 23-9 season record against Grand View JV tonight here. Coach Melissa Blessington said her team played good volleyball over the weekend. “This was a very good weekend for us,” Blessington said. “Playing Parkland was a great experience for our girls, to see that we can ply with teams like that. This tournament was a good measuring stick for us.

Last year we went 0-4 against many of the same teams. Our girls felt good about their play and I know we are going to keep fighting to get better.”

ing some midseason injuries. But, players like Alex Nielsen and Seth Maitlen are on the mend, preparing to play in the district finale against Lewis Central, if not earlier in the last regular season home game against Winterset. “We had a great week of practice and we practiced without pads,” Morrison said. “That helped. We were fresh tonight. We were dinged up across the board. I told the kids, at this point last year we were losing kids to season-ending

injuries. This year we’re going to get kids back. We’re 5-2 and we couldn’t be happier with this win tonight.” Walters called the 4921 win “a total confidence booster.” Phipps said there are still accomplishments to shoot for in the upcoming two weeks. “The LC game is huge for us,” Phipps said. “We just need to go out (this week) and keep getting better. We want to get the number two seed and play at home in the playoffs.”
