Uptown Creston business to close its doors

One of Creston’s uptown businesses is closing its doors. Linda Hewitt, owner of Plentiful Harvest, said her store will officially close Dec. 21 after four years of operation in Creston. She is currently holding a goingout-of-business sale whereby fabric, sewing notions, patterns, yarn, hooks, needles, threads and more are all 40 percent off. “To be honest, we opened our store four years ago because Walmart quit selling fabric,” Hewitt said, “but this past year has been tough economically. This summer was horrific as far as sales for uptown businesses. People just aren’t buying. They are saving money.” Hewitt said she and her staff will continue machine quilting from their homes, and she will now seek other employment. Plentiful Harvest is located at 216 W. Montgomery St. in Creston.

Smallwood guilty of second-degree theft Danielle DeAnn Smallwood — former Creston Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) treasurer who used approximately $23,000 from the PTO account for personal use between October 2010 and April 2013 — pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree theft by misappropriation. Smallwood will be sentenced 9:30 a.m. Jan. 17 at the Union County Courthouse. “She pled guilty to a lesserincluded offense,” said Union County Attorney Tim Kenyon. “She was originally charged with

a class C felony and pled guilty Friday to a lesser class D felony. She’s facing up to five years imprisonment and/or a maximum $7,500 fine.”

Story background

The missing $23,000 was discovered by other PTO officers and school officials in May 2013 when PTO officers changed. Law enforcement was notified immediately. In early June, charges against Smallwood were filed with the Union County Clerk of Court. By August, the 40-year-old

Smallwood had repaid almost all of the $20,000 to the PTO account. “Because she’s repaid about $20,000 of the missing $23,000 to the PTO, there is a substantial likelihood that probation will be involved at

Smallwood ■ Sentencing in the case is slated Jan. 17

the sentencing,”

Kenyon said. “Still, that decision will be made by the sentencing committee.” Kenyon said the additional $3,000 indebted to the PTO will have to be paid by Smallwood. Currently the PTO is led by President Tanya Strong. School officials said Strong and the new officers have provided strong leadership and have put policies in place to make sure this never happens again and that all funds raised meet the mission of the organization.

Creston/O-M travels to No. 1 Heelan By LARRY PETERSON

CNA sports writer

For the second year in a row, the Creston/Orient-Macksburg Panthers face the challenge of a three-hour trip to take on one of the state’s elite football teams to open the Class 3A playoffs. Creston/O-M was defeated by Lewis Central Friday night, 38-10, dropping the Panthers to the No. 4 position in Class 3A District 1 with a record of 6-3 overall, and 4-3 in district play. As the No. 4 seed, Creston/OM was assigned to play at the

Creston/O-M (6-3) at Sioux City Heelan (9-0) at Sioux City, 7 p.m.

No. 1 team in District 2, topranked and undefeated Sioux City Heelan. History hasn’t been kind to the Panthers in making trips to Memorial Field to face the Crusaders in playoff openers. Heelan routed Creston/O-M 66-2 in 2009 in the final game of Dick Bergstrom’s 33-year career as head coach. Last year, an injury-riddled Panther team fell 47-20 to a Heelan squad that finished as state runner-up to Decorah. Heelan is a five-time state champion — 1961, 1971, 1975, 1982 and 2008. The Crusaders have amassed 32 playoff appearances since Iowa began its playoff system in 1972. This is Creston/O-M’s 13th playoff appearance, 10 under former coach Dick Bergstrom, and the third for fourth-year coach Brian Morrison. The Panthers are 0-2 in the first round the past two seasons. Please see PANTHERS, Page 7A


Conner Pals kicks a 27-yard field goal for Creston/O-M against Lewis Central. Christian Groumoutis is the holder. Pals was injured on the play as he was hit on the leg by a Lewis Central defender. Coach Brian Morrison said Pals, also a starting defensive back, will play in Wednesday’s playoff game at Sioux City Heelan.

Helen graduated from Arispe High School in 1943,

attended Creston Junior College for one year, and then taught at a rural school in Sand Creek Township. On June 22, 1946, Helen married Darrell Kingery. While raising her children, Helen taught in rural schools in Dodge and Highland Townships. She continued her education at Drake University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in 1968. She taught at Cromwell and Lincoln and Franklin Schools in Creston, until retiring in 1984. Helen is survived by her husband Darrell; children, Dennis (wife Karlene) of Omaha, Neb., Jean Ann Fregia (husband Ronnie) of Orange, Texas, and Scott (wife Cathy) of Jefferson; four grandchildren, two greatgrandchildren, sister Evelyn Mathes of Afton, brother Robert (wife Marilyn) of Murray and sister-in-law Catherine Fluckey of Creston. Helen was preceded in death by her parents, brother Joe; sisters, Frances Justice and Marie Hudson; and brothers-in-law, John Justice, Ralph Hudson and George Mathes.

CEDAR RAPIDS (MCT) — Iowa is looking to become among a handful of states that allow — on a statewide basis — live electronic reporting from the courtroom, including live blogging and “tweeting.” A proposal to revise the Iowa court rules for expanded media coverage also looks to broaden the court’s definition of news media. That means, for example, that someone who does not work for a news agency but regularly blogs about criminal cases could receive approval to post live updates during court proceedings. “The Supreme Court requested the review because judges and court staff are faced with bloggers, smart phones, and Twitter, among other forms of technology that are not specifically addressed in the current rules,” according to a news release from the Iowa Judicial Branch. If the Iowa Supreme Court approves the proposed rule revisions, Iowans could see more live electronic coverage of criminal cases on more platforms. It also would mean uniformity among Iowa court houses.

“It was inconsistent around the state,” said Steve Davis, court communications officer for the Iowa Judicial Branch. “It was allowed in some areas and not in others.” Iowa’s expanded media coverage rules first were approved in 1979, and they have been only slightly updated since. The proposed changes are the result of a 10-month review by an advisory committee, and they must now go through a 60day public comment period. The Supreme Court will have the ultimate say as to whether the rules are changed, according to Davis. The goal of the new rules, according to the committee’s final report, is to “allow transparency of the legal process while not disrupting court proceedings or interfering with individual rights.” The proposed expanded definition of “electronic devices” is broad enough to allow for the introduction of future technology, and the new definition of “live electronic reporting” would allow for tweeting, blogging and other methods of realtime reporting, according to the report.

The term “news media” was not defined under the old rules. The proposal gives that term a broad definition – “any person who regularly gathers, prepares, photographs, records, writes, edits, reports or publishes news or information about matters of public interest in any medium.” But it still requires that person to successfully apply to participate in news media coverage and to agree to comply with all court rules. “This will allow the judicial officer better control of the courtroom when there are several members of the news media covering a case,” according to the report. Because today’s reporters often use multiple electronic devices to report a story, the committee proposed increasing the number of people who are allowed to record or photograph in a courtroom. Existing rules allow two still cameras, two video cameras and an audio recorder. The amended rules do not limit the number of any particular device but rather allow for no more than five members of the media to be using still cam-

eras, video cameras, audio records or other electronic devices. Supreme Court Justice Bruce B. Zager said in a news release that the proposed rules are meant to address “modern news gathering practices in the courtroom while protecting the rights of parties to a fair trial, personal privacy and safety.” Only a handful of other states have rules allowing for electronic reporting in the courtroom statewide, according to the committee. “Iowa historically has been at the forefront of allowing open access to its court proceedings,” Iowa Freedom of Information Council Executive Director Kathleen Richardson said in a news release. “And the proposed revisions to the rules for expanded media coverage will prepare Iowa’s courts for the reality of modern digital newsgathering and publishing.” To submit comments about the proposed rule changes, visit the judiciary’s website. —————— ©2013 The Gazette Distributed by MCT Information Services

DES MOINES (MCT) — Off-road motorsports enthusiasts Monday pressed for uniform rules that would allow them to operate all-terrain vehicles on secondary roads across Iowa while opponents raised concerns about safety and injury costs that could offset any tourism gains. Rep. Brian Moore, R-Bellevue, said cities and counties already have the authority to designate highways or roads under their jurisdictions for operation of off-highway vehicles but supporters want a statewide system to establish uniformity and provide shared liability for local jurisdictions. Proponents of a law change said a uniform law would eliminate the potential for 99 different sets of rules that could make a legal activity on a local road illegal at the county line. They also said Iowa could reap benefits from registration fees and tourism spending from expanded outdoor recreation opportunities.

Naysayers worried Iowa would reverse a positive trend of lower highway fatalities and face growing costs associated with brain injuries by promoting expanded use of vehicles with narrow wheel bases and high centers of gravity designed for off-road activities. “I hope it won’t pass,” said Gerene Denning, a University of Iowa researcher and member of the ATV Injury Task Force. “It just doesn’t make common sense that you would pass laws that you know are going to promote unsafe behavior.” Iowa lawmakers considered a measure last session to allow “road-ready” ATVs to be driven up to 45 mph on some hard-surface or gravel roads once they were registered and licensed by the state. The

measure, which passed the House but stalled in the Senate, would allow all-terrain vehicles to be operated on secondary roads but not on primary highways — except to cross over a primary highway. Sen. Chris Brase, D-Muscatine, co-leader of a legislative interim committee studying the issue, said lawmakers are looking to balance concerns about individual rights, local home rule, public safety, training and licensing requirements. But he was optimistic a compromise version could be forged to get a bill to Gov. Terry Branstad’s desk during the 2014 session. —————— ©2013 The Gazette Distributed by MCT Information Services

Creston News Advertiser Tuesday, October 29, 2013


Police brutality, mental illness and ‘The Memphis Model’ Elsa Cruz filed a federal lawsuit in New York this week, months after police shot her husband dead. Last May, Cruz called 911 asking for help with her husband, Samuel. She feared he hadn’t taken his medication while she was on vacation in her native country, the Philippines. Eight months, almost to the day, before Cruz was killed, not far away in Harlem, Hawa Bah called 911 to ask for medical help for her son, Mohamed. Rather than getting medical help, Mohamed Bah was confronted by the New York City Police Department. Within hours, he, too, was shot dead by police, hit eight times, once in the head. Mohamed’s sister, Oumou Bah, is suing the City of New York and unnamed police officers. While neither lawsuit will bring back the dead, they may prevent future deaths by forcing the New Rochelle Police Department and the NYPD to adopt an increasingly mainstream police practice for dealing with emotionally distressed people, called “The Memphis Model.” In an exclusive interview Tuesday on the “Democracy Now!” news hour, I had the chance to interview Hawa Bah and Elsa Cruz.

King Features commentary Amy Goodman

They were meeting each other in our studios for the first time. Hawa Bah made annual visits to New York from the West African nation of Guinea to see her son, Mohamed. On her most recent visit, she was struck by Mohamed’s deteriorating condition. He had lost weight and had a cut above his eye. He was acting erratically. She suspected he was depressed, and wanted him to go to the hospital. Unable to convince him to go, she sought advice from friends, who suggested she call 911. She told me, “When I saw the police car, I see him, I say, ‘Hey, I don’t call police. I call an ambulance.’ He say, ‘No, ma’am, don’t worry. In New York here, when you call an ambulance, we will come first. We will look at the person and call an ambulance.’ He said, ‘Don’t worry, he will be OK.’” The NYPD never told Mohamed Bah that they were there at his mother’s request. Hawa Bah told

me, “He didn’t tell Mohamed, ‘Your mom say go to the hospital.’ He just say, ‘Mohamed, open the door. I came for you.’” She begged the police to let her talk to her son. Her attorney Randolph McLaughlin explained what happened next: “They broke the door down, tasered, beanbagged and shot him eight times. The last bullet went into his head and had stippling around the entry wound, which says that that shot, which probably took his life, was at close range.” On May 26, Samuel Cruz, like Mohamed Bah, was acting erratically. Elsa called 911. She recounted to me what she told the operator: “There’s something wrong with my husband. He needs help. Can you please send us somebody to help me to assisting him to go to the hospital?” She said, “Your husband is harming anybody?” And I said, “No, ma’am, no. He’s a very nice person. He never harm anybody. Could you please send us somebody, or whatever?” And then, “OK.” The New Rochelle police arrived, dressed, as Elsa recalls, “for war.” They forced their way into the apartment and shot her husband dead. Both the NYPD, in Bah’s case,

and the New Rochelle police, in Cruz’s case, claim that the distressed individual lunged at officers with a knife. As Bah and Cruz’s other attorney, Mayo Bartlett, noted: “The thing that’s striking in these cases is the fact that the police are not called in response to a crime. There’s no rush. There’s no need to take such immediate action.” This is where “The Memphis Model” comes in. Maj. Sam Cochran is a retired officer with the Memphis, Tenn., police. In 1987, police responded to a man who was harming himself, and threatening others, with a knife. The police killed the man. Community outcry prompted the mayor to call for a solution. They developed the Crisis Intervention Team. Sam Cochran explained to me, “It’s a community program [with] three main partnerships: law enforcement, local mental-health services providers and also advocacy.” CITs put a trained officer or mental-health professional on the scene, to de-escalate a situation. Since its inception in Memphis, it has been adopted in more than 2,500 communities in 40 states, as well as internationally. The Cruz and Bah families are

suing, demanding that the New Rochelle Police Department and the NYPD adopt CIT policies. As attorney Randolph McLaughlin summarized: “The police say the exact same thing in Bah and in Cruz: ‘He came at us with a knife, and we killed him.’ ... What was their plan? Did they have a plan when they broke in the door? Why did they break in the door? Why didn’t they slow things down? Why did they aggravate the situation? In fact, the officers in all of these cases have not been trained in crisis intervention. They’ve been trained in the use of force — deadly force. And if that’s all the officer has at his disposal, he will use it.” *** Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. *** Amy Goodman is the host of “Democracy Now!,” a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of “The Silenced Majority,” a New York Times best-seller. (c) 2013 Amy Goodman Distributed by King Features Syndicate

HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? JC Penney’s announced they will be open all day Thanksgiving Day to jump start the Christmas shopping season. Retailers have it laid out. The next day is Black Friday, followed by Small Business Saturday, followed by Online Monday, followed by Identity Theft Tuesday. The Daily Oklahoman reported that a man delivered his wife’s baby Thursday in the WalMart parking lot in Mustang. He took direction from the police operator on his cell phone. In all Southern states WalMart not only offers free layaway, they have free delivery. Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder was rumored considering the Washington Bravehearts for a team name. It raised concerns. The fact that Dan Snyder is Jewish and considering naming his team for a Mel Gibson movie is clinical evidence that he needs help. An Atlanta Falcons cheerleader made it into the Guinness Book of World Records last week when she performed forty-four consecutive back hand-springs. It wasn’t at the football game. She was celebrating finally getting a response from the ObamaCare website. President Obama spoke with the kids at Brooklyn’s Pathways in

Topical humor Argus Hamilton

Technology high-tech school Friday. They had a very productive exchange. President Obama taught the children a lesson in civics, and the children taught the president how to set up a website that works. The Labor Department said Friday that U.S. worker productivity remains stagnant. There is malaise in the air. Thirty percent of Americans polled say they’ve called in sick when they weren’t, while the other seventy percent are waiting for ObamaCare to make it legal. Forbes named Michael Jackson as the highest earning dead celebrity last year. Elvis was second again. The list didn’t include the ObamaCare website designer, who made six hundred million last year, because he won’t be dead until the president tracks him down. Kathleen Sibelius refused to resign Friday over the ObamaCare website fiasco. What a tough choice she faces. Kathy is a very proper Kansas lady who must either resign in disgrace or save her place in history and ask porn sites how they

handle this much volume. Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel slammed the U.S. for having the NSA monitor her phone calls. It says a lot about the NSA spies. When given the choice, they feel it’s less erotic to listen to Scarlett Johanson’s calls than it is to hear a woman give orders in German. Detroit filed for chapter nine bankruptcy protection Thursday following decades of decline for the once-richest city in America. It’s eighteen billion dollars in debt. The economy is so bad in Detroit that Motor City Casino was turned into an Indian reservation. The Counselor opened in theaters Friday starring Michael Fassbender and Penelope Cruz in a film-noir crime thriller. The plot has everybody in L.A. talking. It’s about a lawyer who gets involved in the drug trade, and as a result, the drug trade gets a really bad name. Malaysia University announced it’s giving a doctorate in economics to North Korea’s ruler Kim Jung Un. He succeeded his late father two years ago. North Korea still refuses to admit that his father Kim Jong-Il died, they’ll only say that he’s entered a sleeping contest.

Should shoppers zip up? Dear Readers: How many times have you gone shopping and, as you pay for the purchases, been ASKED FOR YOUR ZIP CODE? Did you ever wonder WHY the retailers are asking you for this information? Do you have to give it to them? Not really, unless using a credit card where the issuer requests a ZIP code for security purposes. It’s all about marketing and getting more information about you. Asking the ZIP code gives a retailer easy access to your address, which helps it mail you advertisements, coupons and other junk mail from that store and maybe others if the retailer “shares” or sells its data. However, at a gas station, you may be asked for your ZIP code to prevent fraud. A thief probably would not know your ZIP code (unless he or she stole your purse or wallet with other identifying information in there). If you don’t want to give your ZIP code, just say “No.” However, be aware that just by shopping with a credit card or rewards card, most of your buying habits already are being collected! — Heloise SELL-BY DATE Dear Heloise: How important is the “sell by” date? My

Hints from Heloise food-storage shelves have boxes of dry goods — cereal, crackers, etc. I buy these when they are on sale, more than we can consume before that date is up. The taste seems to be the same. — Claire A. in Maryland The sell-by date lets stores know when to take items off the shelves. You can eat the food safely beyond that date, but not years later! It all depends on the item. Crackers or cereal and other staples will be just fine after the sellby date. However, when in doubt, throw it out! — Heloise CONTAINING DUST Dear Heloise: A hint for keeping dust down while taking ashes (Heloise here: COLD ashes!) out of a woodburning stove is to cut a piece of plywood slightly larger than the top of the metal ash bucket. Wet one side of the plywood and use it to cover the bucket. Lift one side and quickly deposit shovelfuls of ashes in the bucket and then

LOCKHORNS® by Hoest & Reiner

lower the plywood. As dust whirls around in the bucket, it becomes lodged on the wet cover. This cuts down on the need to dust the room. — Jane K. in Pennsylvania Be absolutely sure that the ashes are COLD! Don’t take a chance of starting an accidental fire. — Heloise COMPUTER CLEANING Dear Heloise: Here is a hint that I have made part of my cleaning routine: When vacuuming, I use the attachment to clean my computer keyboard and tower. Keeping these areas free of dust keeps the computer running smoothly. — Tracey K., via email EASY STORING Dear Heloise: Whenever I go out, I store my earbuds in an old, hard-shelled eyeglass case to keep them safe. I even BEETLE BAILEY® by Greg & Mort Walker can get more than one set in a case when needed. — Tracy F., via email Send a money-saving or timesaving hint to Heloise, P.O. Box 795000, San Antonio, TX 78279-5000, or you can fax it to 1-210-HELOISE or email it to I can’t answer your letter personally but will use the best hints received in my column.

nized. You’re a doer. You listen to those around you and then act with confidence. Many of you are multitalented and versatile, and can excel in more than one field.

SPORTS PANTHERS: Continued from Page 1A

On paper, it’s a daunting task for a Panther squad saddled with some key injuries, with two of those available to play on a part-time basis (Alex Nielsen and Seth Maitlen). Two others nursing injuries last week, center Nate Haley and cornerback/kicker Conner Pals, are expected to start when Wednesday’s game kicks off at 7 p.m.

Positive mindset Morrison knows his team is a substantial underdog, but that doesn’t take away from an opportunity to continue playing more football in 2013. He said nothing is guaranteed before the game is played. “It’s high school football,” Morrison said. “You never know. Yes, they have elite kids across the board. Our expectation is to play hard for each other, and win the next play. Then, see what happens.” The primary objective, Morrison said, is to “not let the floodgates open.” Heelan averages 45.7 points per game, and can score in a hurry. “If the floodgates do open, we have to close them in a hurry,” Morrison said. “It comes down to special teams, field position, taking care of the football and eliminating penalties. When you’re playing really good teams, you have to be sound in those areas. If you are, you give yourself a chance to get the game into the second half and still be within reach.”

Last year The score in last year’s Heelan vs. Creston/O-M playoff opener got inflated in the final five minutes. It was competitive for 43 minutes. With an injured thumb prior to the regular-season finale against Lewis Central, Luke Neitzel moved from quarterback to running back, a position vacated two weeks earlier by all-district senior Bryce McIlravy’s broken ankle. Heelan took a 13-0 early lead on two touchdown passes from Trent Solsma to Conner Niles, the combination again leading this year’s Crusader offense. Trevor Frain had an 18yard touchdown catch to pull the Panthers within 13-7 in the first quarter. Then Neitzel made a TD catch in the second quarter to cut Heelan’s lead to 16-13. But, a squib kick

was recovered by the Crusaders on their own 45, and they were able to score on another Niles touchdown to make it 23-13 at halftime. Creston/O-M stayed close in the second half. Neitzel’s touchdown with 9:46 left made it a 26-20 game. The Panthers just needed a stop, and a possession with the chance to get the lead. Instead, Heelan put a drive together, and a pass interference penalty on the Panthers in the end zone set up a 9-yard touchdown run by Tony Tobin — this year’s leading rusher — for an insurance score with 5:23 left. In a desperation passing mode, Heelan’s defense forced turnovers and inflated the final margin with scores off short field position. In that game, Brandon Phipps was 9-of-27 passing for 181 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Frain had a team-leading 69 yards rushing and Neitzel was limited to 43 on 20 attempts, ending a 1,260-yard rushing season in addition to passing for 708.

District march This season, after a relatively close season-opening win over Class 4A Sioux City East (27-22) and victories of 48-13 and 40-0 over two other crosstown rivals (Sioux City North and West), the Crusaders swept through District 2 at 7-0. That included a 40-0 victory over stateranked Carroll on Oct. 11 and a 42-17 victory last week over a Spencer team that was ranked No. 2 in the state earlier in the season. “The wind was a huge factor in the Carroll game,” Morrison said. “You have one bad quarter against the

wind on a night like that, and it can have a snowball effect. Spencer is a good football team and was having some success last week.” A power running team, Spencer moved to a 17-7 lead in the second quarter over Heelan. Then the Crusaders scored the next 35 points, as Solsma passed for 306 yards, including a 75-yard scoring strike to Niles, who had 170 yards on five receptions. He is averaging 20.2 yards per catch on 42 receptions. Phil Jacobson is a big-play threat as a receiver, runner and kick returner. He has 13 total touchdowns, including three on kick returns. Tobin led the ground game Friday with 71 yards on 13 carries. He has 837 yards for the season, with 10 TDs. Defensive end Christian Brobst, a 6-3, 205-pound senior, is the star of the defense with 57 tackles (42 solo) including 10 quarterback sacks. “They have so many skill kids, I think that’s why they throw the ball a lot,” Morrison said. “It’s a pass-first philosophy, but they can run the ball, too. Their defense is a four-man front, but they blitz like crazy and play you man (on receivers). “We’re looking at this as a chance to get better as a football team, and that’s how we do it every week,” Morrison said. “We’re not getting tied up in who we are playing. We’ve played good teams all year. We’re just trying to put a plan together to put our kids in the right situations to be successful.” Wednesday’s winner will face either Spencer (7-2) or Lewis Central (4-5) Monday at the higher seed’s field.

Directions to Heelan Sioux City Heelan plays its home games at Memorial Field, 1617 W. 17th St. in Sioux City. Creston/O-M fans can find the stadium by driving north on I-29 into the north portion of the city, and take the Hamilton Blvd. exit (149). Stay right to merge onto Hamilton Blvd. The stadium is just off Hamilton Blvd. on the east side at 17th Street. The trip is 187.5 miles from Creston, taking I-80 West merging onto I-680 West via exit 27 toward North Omaha/Sioux City. After 16 miles on I-680, merge onto I-29 North toward Sioux City.

Murray hosts Wayne in rematch By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

MURRAY — Just because Murray defeated Wayne 4722 earlier this season, doesn’t mean the Mustangs will be taking the Falcons lightly in their Eight-Man first round playoff matchup here at 7 p.m. Wednesday. “Last year we didn’t see Wayne at all, and it was their first year as far as dropping down to Eight-Man,” Murray head coach Keith Shields said. “It was a good opportunity for us, having not seen their kids before. In some ways, it familiarized us with them. The one thing about our game coming up is they have a couple of kids back that didn’t play against us the first time, including their starting quarterback.” Dillon Lain is healthy and back in the Falcon starting lineup after missing that first matchup with Murray. Lain has completed 46 percent of his passes for 861 yards with 16 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions.

“We had prepared the first time around as if he would play,” Shields said. “He was their starting quarterback last year. I’m sure he brings stability to their team. He throws a decent ball and he looks like he’s a decent runner. He’ll bring a different dimension from the first time.” The Mustangs will also have to stop running back Clayton Kiefer, who ran for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting between the two teams. Kiefer has 1,071 rushing yards and 26 touchdowns for the season. Kiefer is also one of three different Wayne players who have more than 200 receiving yards for the season. “They’ve got good athletes at all the skill positions that can run and catch,” Shields said. “Their starting tailback is over a 1,000-yard rusher. He’s one of the toughest runners we’ve seen all year. We’ll have to be ready to tackle, and especially tackle low against him on Wednesday night.” For more on this matchup, visit

Teammates Natalie Mostek (left) and Hanna Luther (10) celebrate a kill by Sydney Dunphy (21) during the third game of Creston’s 3-0 regional tournament sweep at Glenwood Monday night. Dunphy’s nine kills was second only to Mostek’s 10 in the program’s first regional tourney win in four years.

By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer •

GLENWOOD — History repeated itself in the Glenwood gymnasium Monday night. The previous regional tournament victory by a Creston volleyball team came in 2009, the year Glenwood’s new high school opened. Two years earlier, Creston fell 3-2 to Harlan in the regional semifinals. Since then, postseason play has not netted the smiles abundant throughout the victorious Panther squad here Monday night, after a dominant 25-11, 25-19, 25-15 sweep of the Rams in a 4A Region 2 quarterfinal match. “I was proud of the girls and the heart they played with,” said a beaming coach Polly Luther afterward. “We’ve really been focusing on our mental aspects. I saw them playing with a little bit of confidence, which is huge for us.” From Haylee LaMasters’ 8-0 service run to start the match, Creston was in command. Glenwood’s only lead of the night was 1-0 in game two. The win vaults Creston into Thursday’s 7 p.m. semifinal match at 11th-ranked Lewis Central. Dallas CenterGrimes, a 3-2 winner over Winterset, advanced to the other semifinal against No. 1-ranked Harlan. The winners square off Tuesday at Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln. Glenwood coach Maria Ja-

cobus was almost at a loss for words Monday, just 18 days after watching her team defeat Creston 3-1. “We weren’t as quick tonight,” Jacobus said. “Our feet were not quick in any aspect of our game. We were slow and hesitating. Creston was quick on defense, did a great job from the service line and had its attack going.” Junior middle hitter Natalie Mostek again led Creston’s offense with 10 kills and nine blocks. But, a major contributor emerged from the outside hitting position.

Dunphy shines Sophomore Sydney Dunphy finished with nine kills, two blocks and a team-high four ace serves, including one on a five-serve run to finish out the match. With Glenwood’s defense concentrating on Mostek, Dunphy found openings for sharp cross-court attacks. “Hanna (Luther) put up some good sets and I just tried to read the block and go around it,” Dunphy said. “The sharp cross was open all night.” Luther, who finished with 28 setting assists in three sets, said the team’s overall game was sharp Monday. “We all had great energy and we were ready to play,” Luther said. “We had some great passes tonight.” Coach Luther said Hanna did a better job of getting her feet underneath her on “out of system” sets that she had to

make on the run. “She wasn’t reaching, so she could put the ball where it needed to be,” coach Luther said. The Panther coach said Dunphy showed improvement in recent practices to grab a position that was rotated among several players throughout the season. “She stepped up in practice with her attitude, her confidence, her transition and all-around play,” Luther said. “You have to have an all-around player in that position. Overall as a team, we were reacting quicker tonight. We just kept coming at them, which was a key.”

Looking ahead Now, the same approach will be necessary Thursday against the conference runnerup team that lost only to Harlan in league play. Lewis Central defeated Creston on Oct. 3, 25-11, 25-23, 19-25, 25-17. “They are good all the way around,” Luther said. “We will have to be at the top of our game. They run a lot of quick (sets). We just have to be ready for it.”

Creston statistics Serving (aces) — Haylee LaMasters 25-25 (1), Hanna Luther 15-15 (1), Sydney Dunphy 11-12 (4), Alli Thomsen 9-9 (1), Natalie Mostek 7-8 (1), Brenna Baker 3-5.

Raiders matched up with Panorama


CNA sports editor •

PANORA — When the Mount Ayr Raiders (7-2) meet up with the Panorama Panthers (7-2) here Friday in a Class 1A first round playoff game, something will have to give. The Raiders enter the contest having allowed just one rushing touchdown all season. The Panthers, meanwhile, have scored 31 rushing touchdowns this year. The Panthers average 232 rushing yards per contest, having run for over

2,000 yards as a team. Chase Hennen is the leading rusher, averaging 11.1 yards per carry for 580 yards and eight touchdowns, but the Panthers feature four running backs who have gained more than 200 yards. “Can’t key on any one player; they really spread the touches around,” Mount Ayr co-head coach Delwyn Showalter said. “They will run inside, outside and misdirection. The little running back gets behind the linemen and he is tough to see.” But, the Raiders also cannot

just key in on the run, as junior quarterback Gavin Richey is effective in the passing game. Richey has thrown for 1,309 yards this season with 10 touchdowns to three interceptions. “The passing attack is accurate and exploits the seams of the defense,” Showalter said. “The drag route is really effective. They also run a nice screen.” Hennen is also the leading receiver, averaging 23.8 yards per catch on 22 receptions with three touchdowns. For more on this matchup, visit

Battle of the Valleys Wolverines travel to Ogden By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

CORNING — In Southwest Valley’s first year as a school, the Timberwolves find themselves hosting a first round playoff game as the top seed from Eight-Man District 8. The Timberwolves play host to Boyer Valley at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Southwest Valley enters with a record of 7-2, while Boyer Valley stands at 6-3. Boyer Valley features a balanced offense, with more than 1,200 passing yards and more than 1,550 rushing yards for the season. “They’ve got three running backs that have split carries up this year,” Southwest Valley head coach Kent Bass said. “As far as keying on one guy in the backfield, we can’t do that. We just have to play assignment football. They really like to spread it around to their athletes and make plays. They have a big offensive line, and they’re a very good football team.” Nick Klein, Cody Thore-

son and Nathan Rudd each have rushed for 451, 447 and 446 yards, respectively. Klein and Thoreson have each scored eight rushing touchdowns, while Rudd has added five. Thoreson is also the quarterback, completing 49 percent of his passes with 16 touchdowns compared to six interceptions. Calvin Wood and Reed Block are the leading receivers, with each accumulating more than 450 receiving yards this year. For Bass, the key to victory against Boyer Valley is simple — eliminate mistakes and sustain offensive drives. “When playoffs and big games occur, it’s going to come down to who can make the fewest mistakes and executing in third down situations to keep a drive alive,” Bass said. “When you’ve got some evenly matched teams come playoff time, mistakes are magnified. When you have opportunities to score, you’ve got to have your playmakers make big plays in those situations.” For more on this matchup, visit

OGDEN — Nodaway Valley (5-4) hits the road Wednesday to take on Ogden’s powerful offense in the first round of the Class 1A playoffs here at 7 p.m. Ogden (8-1) features a balanced, yet high-powered offense. The Bulldogs have thrown the ball for 1,730 yards this season and have rushed for 1,783 yards “Obviously, they’re pretty good,” Nodaway Valley head coach Steve Shantz said. “They’ve beat some pretty good clubs. They kind of go to the pass first, and they’ll do some things with the run. They’ve got a good quarterback and a few good receivers, and they do like to throw the ball. It’s kind of scary, because the quarterback can also run.” Quarterback Caleb Frye has thrown 15 touchdowns this year compared to just three interceptions — two of which came against Mount Ayr. Frye is also the second leading rusher on the team with 377 yards.

His favorite targets are Luke and Jake West with 51 and 32 receptions for the year, but tight end Grant Heineman with 23 catches has also proven to be a dangerous receiving threat. Sophomore Austin Lentz is the leading rusher, averaging 7.7 yards per carry with 951 yards and nine touchdowns for the season. “We’re going to have to beat them up front,” Shantz said. “It’s going to start with our line, I don’t care which side of the ball. We’re going to have to get some pressure on the quarterback. We’re going to have to get better on pass defense. We’ve gotten better throughout the year, but we’re going to have to get better. If we can get big and physical up front and take care of the run, we’re going to be much better off.” On the other side, Nodaway Valley sophomore starting quarterback Jackson Lamb has done a good job of managing the offense and has improved as the season has gone on.
