QUICK NEWS Reminder: Daylight saving time starts Sunday Don’t forget to set the clocks back one hour for daylight saving time (DST) 2 a.m. Sunday. Most Americans will gain an hour of sleep with the “fall back,” and have an extra hour of sunlight to work with through the end of fall and winter. DST was first suggested by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, but modern DST did not take hold until 1895. The United States set a law in 1918 to standardize the beginning and end of DST, but federal government does not require states or territories to make the change. Most of Arizona and Hawaii will not adjust its clocks this weekend.

Afton Mexican restaurant using fresh ingredients and friendly service to increase customer base ■


CNA asst. managing editor

AFTON — Word continues to spread about a small restaurant in Afton. That restaurant — El Ranchito — is owned by brothers Alex Mandujano and Roger Lopez. They’ve been in business since January, but it wasn’t until recently that word really has begun to circulate about their tasty Mexican and Italian cuisines. “It just takes a while when Lopez you’re a new restaurant to get your name out there,” Mandujano said. “But, we are getting busier now. People are coming in, trying our food, liking it and telling their friends. We hope to keep that going.” One of the more regular customers is Joe Waigand of Afton who highly recommends El Ranchito’s triple

combo fajitas that includes seasoned shrimp, beef and chicken fajitas. “That’s one of my favorites,” Waigand said. “But you can’t go wrong with really anything on their menu.” Mandujano said they are primarily a Mexican restaurant serving traditional dishes like fajitas, enchiladas, chimichangas and tacos. Mandujano said they take pride in making made-to-order dishes with fresh ingredients. “You will taste the difference compared to the compe-

Free Veterans lunch at El Ranchito El Ranchito — owned by Alex Mandujano and Roger Lopez — will honor veterans by hosting a free lunch Nov. 10 at their restaurant on 183 E. Kansas St. in Afton. Hours that day are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will be serving

chicken alfredo, chimichangas and enchiladas. “This is a chance for us to give appreciation to our veterans,” Mandujano said, “but also it is helpful to us because we will have people coming in to try our food.”

tition,” Mandujano said. However, Mexican dishes aren’t the only staples of the El Ranchito menu. P r i o r to coming to Afton, Mandujano worked at an upscale Italian restaurant in Chicago. Lopez was Mandujano in charge of cooking and ordering for the restaurant. “You won’t be disappointed with our fettuccine alfredo,” Mandujano said. “I use simple ingredients. It has great flavor and, if you try it once, you will want to order it a second time.” Shannon Harper of Afton highly recommends the Italian menu. “When they first opened, I stuck with food just on the Mexican menu,” Harper said, “but now I order both. I’d

even say now I like their Italian menu better. It’s authentic food that’s freshly prepared.” Still, both Harper and Waigand noted their favorite part about El Ranchito is the friendliness of the owners and staff. “The owners almost always come out and talk to you after cooking your meal,” Harper said. “They are polite,” Waigand added. “It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, the service is good and they are going to come out and talk with you.” El Ranchito does have a liquor license and offers margaritas and domestic and imported beers. The restaurant is located at 183 E. Kansas St. in Afton on the southeast side of the square. Hours at El Ranchito are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.

WATERLOO (MCT) — Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller fears people uninformed about the Affordable Care Act could wind up with substandard insurance, added costs or money lost to fraud. Miller believes confusion over the federal health care law has created an open door for con artists willing to make false claims to garner more business. “Whenever there’s complexity, there’s opportunity for fraud,” Miller said Wednesday in Waterloo. He said some companies or individuals fraudulently represent themselves as part of the government. They may seek personal information or offer health insurance policies that do not meet standards in the ACA. Other companies sell products they claim to be qualified plans that are not. A consumer could wind up buying a health insurance policy that offers limited coverage that doesn’t meet the individual mandate in the ACA. That could lead to a tax penalty for the victim. Miller said his office is investigating a case in which an out-of-state company aired a radio advertisement that made dubious claims about its health care product. Both

the Consumer Protection Division of the Iowa Attorney General’s office and the Iowa Insurance Division are looking into the case. Miller is out speaking around the state to try to head off fraud before it happens. “If you can prevent fraud, it’s so much better than trying to get money back later. At this point, fortunately, this is a prevention effort,” Miller said. Miller and Iowan Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart warned people not to give out personal information over the phone. If you suspect a scam, hang up or ask the caller for information to verify their legitimacy. “Anyone who is legitimately connected with the Affordable Care Act enrollment process will not have any problem with giving you their contact information,” Gerhart said. Anyone who suspects insurance fraud can contact the Iowa Insurance Division at (877) 955-1212 or the Consumer Protection Division at (888) 777-4590. —————— ©2013 Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier Distributed by MCT Information Services

Urban wetlands can help curb pollution IOWA CITY (MCT) — Constructed wetlands can help Iowa cities and towns manage storm runoff from both farm fields and new development sites, according to researchers who looked at the opportunities offered by urban wetland projects. Constructed wetlands can reduce nutrients, collect sediment, slow flood water and improve biodiversity, said coauthor J. Elizabeth Maas of Iowa City, a landscape consultant and restoration ecologist. In a report for the nonpartisan Iowa Policy Project, Maas and co-author E. Arthur Bettis, associate professor of soils geomorphology at the University of Iowa, said constructed wetlands in urban settings

can also improve esthetics and expand recreational opportunities. “They are a great way to add beauty and biodiversity.” Maas said Wednesday morning in a telephone news conference to announce the study, “Managing Water Pollution with urban Wetlands.” Maas, who teaches biology at Kirkwood Community College, said her own consulting work during the past 11 years impressed upon her the need for the 35-page report. The report, offers a “Howto Guide” for local officials and developers to consider wetland options and funding possibilities, the authors said. The reports are available to the public at www.iowapolicy- —————— ©2013 The Gazette Visit The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) at thegazette. com Distributed by MCT Information Services

WASHINGTON (MCT) — Sen. Chuck Grassley plans to “drive a hard bargain on behalf of the taxpaying public” in meetings of a new group created by the deal to lift the debt ceiling and reopen the federal government. The 29-member committee began meeting Wednesday to find an agreement between the House and Senate approaches to the nation’s fiscal challenges, growing the economy and addressing the nation’s growing debt. The committee of House and Senate members hand-picked by their leaders has a Dec. 13 deadline to reach an agreement so appropriations committees can draft spending

bills to avert another government shutdown Jan. 15 when it’s expected to run out of money. The Iowa Republican said he will deliver a “simple, straight-forward message that Washington can’t tax, spend, borrow its way to prosperity.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said he can’t accept a deal that does not include revenues. Majority Democrats have put forward

a plan calling for an additional $1 trillion in taxes. “I disagree with those who believe raising taxes is the solution to reducing deficits and paying down America’s $17 trillion debt,” Grassley told Iowa reporters Wednesday morning after the first meeting of the panel. ———— —— ©2013 The Gazette Distributed by MCT Information Services

Motion commotion Dear Readers: Many of you wrote sharing your hints about how to REDUCE MOTION SICKNESS. Here is what some of you had to say: Agnes in West Sacramento, Calif.: “I used the herb ginger root to calm the stomach: two capsules a half-hour to an hour before the trip started. Then another capsule every hour or whenever I started to feel queasy.” Dave, via email: “My cure for motion sickness: Suck on a lemon. It worked for me as a child while riding miles in a car. It now works for my grandchildren.” Grandma J., via email: “Did you forget ginger snaps? They taste so good. Kids love them, and they do help relieve the symptoms of motion sickness.” Robert Beyer, M.D., in California: “As an ophthalmologist, I sometimes have patients with this problem. Some of them obtain relief if they close or cover one of their eyes. It seems that in some individuals, motion sickness is a three-dimension motional perception problem. Restricting vision to one eye while the difficulty is occurring seems to benefit these individuals.” Thank you all for writing.

FAMILY CIRCUS® by Bill Keane

Hints from Heloise Most people know about ginger (in any form) to help settle a queasy stomach, but I sure never thought about closing one eye! — Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: We recently got back from a trip, and I wanted to share some travel tips. Bring a “jersey” dress that you can accent with great accessories and wear out to dinner your first night, then let it become your beach cover-up/ bathrobe for the rest of the trip. On our trip, I bought some earrings that were delicate, and I was afraid they’d get squished out of shape. For the flight home, I put them in the empty boxes of my pillbox. I was so impressed with the idea, I moved all my earrings into that container! — Lisa C., Colorado Springs, Colo. WINDSHIELD CLEANING Dear Heloise: Cleaning the inside of the windshield is a contortionist’s dream. I just

learned that by wearing latex gloves, I have a better and easier grip on paper towels. — Garry in Huber Heights, Ohio LEAF BLOWER Dear Heloise: I cringe every fall, seeing my neighbors blow or rake their leaves into the gutters, which clogs the drain systems. Almost worse are the many plastic bags full of leaves left for trucks to take to the landfills. Hasn’t everyone gotten the memo by now about plastic bags? If your disposal company will not accept loose leaves in a garbage can, one large bag can be filled, then the leaves inside crushed and condensed and used for compost in flower beds. Leaves (and grass clippings) make excellent mulches and fertilizers. BEETLE BAILEY® by Greg & Mort Walker — Lynn in Colorado Springs, Colo. MICROWAVE TURNTABLE Dear Heloise: Here is another use for microwave turntables: Find a place mat that matches your decor. Trim it to fit under the turntable, and place it on the floor to hold your pet’s dishes. The rim will contain crumbs and spills. — G. Tullio in Kansas (c)2013 by King Features Syndicate Inc.

Horoscope Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You ruler, Mars, is positioned beautifully to help you work. Get as much done as possible, because it won’t always be this easy. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You don’t want to postpone self-gratification for duties and obligations. Quite the opposite. You want to play and have fun! You want to do what you want to do. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Increased chaos and activity on the home front require your attention. Perhaps this is due to visiting guests, residential moves or renovations. Roll up your sleeves and dig in. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) All your communication with others will be direct, persuasive and to the point because fiery Mars is affecting your style of talking. (This is why everyone is agreeing with you.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You’re ready to work hard to earn money now, in part because you’re also spending it. You feel confident about being more in control of your scene. (This is good.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) With Mars in your sign now, you are pumped and raring to go. Get extra physical exercise to blow off some of this pentup steam and energy. (“It’s my way or the highway!”) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Some of you are involved in secret love affairs or behindthe-scenes activities. You prefer to work alone or do things privately right now. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Expect competition with others, especially in sports, group activities and professional gatherings. You intend to win. (And you probably will.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your ambition is aroused now, which gives you the energy, focus and followthrough to achieve what you want to get done. When somebody knows where they’re going, others get out of their way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Make plans to travel or expand your world through higher education. You want more out of life, and you want to feel stimulated, not bored. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Disputes about inheritanc-

es, shared property and anything you own jointly with others might exist now. You will win these encounters because you know what you want and you know where to draw the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because Mars is opposite your sign, you feel impatient with others. Naturally, to you, these people are annoying. And perhaps they are. Patience is your best ally. YOU BORN TODAY You are influential to the people around

you as well as to any situation in which you find yourself immersed. You seem to be a catalyst for change. Naturally, in your own life, change and transformation are a major theme. This year something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new.

Voting NO may end up costing you more than voting YES . . .

Iowa Code 903.4 requires every county to provide a place of confinement, which would include a holding facility (a secure acrea to hold prisoners prior to their initial appearance before a judge), or transport prisoners within 2 hours of arrest. Since the jail has been closed, the County is currently required to transport prisoners within 2 hours of their arrest. This is already happening. The County has already spent approximately $60,000 to house prisoners in other counties since March. In addition to the cost of boarding, there will be annual costs to transport prisoners to another county’s jail and county-wide law enforcement will be reduced as Sheriff’s Deputies chauffeur prisoners. While rates to board prisoners at other counties’ jails may seem reasonable now, the boarding rate could increase dramatically, based upon decisions made in other counties. By committing to housing prisoners in other counties, we wager our financial future on factors outside of our control.

Living with diabetes and maintaining healthy vision (BPT) — In 2012, diabetes health costs in the U.S. were $245 billion, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that by 2020, one in every three health care dollars in the U.S. will be spent on diabetes-related care. Diabetes is now the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults aged 20-74 years, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Maintaining healthy blood vessels is essential for preserving healthy vision, especially those located in the retina in the back of the eye that are particularly susceptible to damage. The need to preserve blood vessel health is supported by the projected rise of diabetes in the U.S. population. In the U.S. today, diabetes affects approximately 25 million people, or 8 percent of the population. The most common form of diabetes, type 2, accounts for 90 percent of diagnosed cases. Another 79 million people are at risk for developing diabetes, and nearly 2 million new cases are reported each year. It is estimated that 7 million people have undi-

agnosed diabetes, and that by the year 2030, more than 500 million people worldwide will have diabetes. Being proactive about your eye health The National Eye Institute states that more than 40 percent of people with diabetes have diabetic eye disease. The most common form is diabetic retinopathy, which usually affects both eyes. However, many patients with diabetic retinopathy may experience no symptoms at all until the condition progresses. There are two forms of diabetic retinopathy: nonproliferative retinopathy and proliferative retinopathy. Nonproliferative retinopathy occurs when blood vessels in the retina become weak, resulting in tiny bulges within retinal capillaries that may allow leakage of fluid and blood. If the central part of the retina that is responsible for good detail and color vision, the macula, is affected, vision loss may occur (a condition called diabetic macular edema or DME). Proliferative retinopathy is when abnormally fragile new blood vessels that grow

on the surface of the retina in an effort to improve circulation may bleed profusely and cause growth of fibrotic scar tissue that detaches the retina from the back wall of the eye (tractional retinal detachment), resulting in severe vision loss or even blindness. The longer a patient has diabetes, the more likely they are to develop some level of diabetic retinopathy. Of the approximately

25 million people with diabetes in the U.S., 9.6 million have some level of diabetic retinopathy, while another 3 million have sight-threatening retinopathy (STR). Most diabetes patients will eventually develop nonproliferative retinopathy and a significant number will develop DME, but the more serious, proliferative retinopathy, is less common. As diabetic retinopathy progresses, patients may

experience spots or floaters, red veils or streaks, blurred vision, a dark or empty spot in the center of their vision, and difficulty seeing well at night. Significant damage to the retina occurs long before patients develop any of these symptoms. Several factors influence if and when a patient develops diabetic retinopathy, including blood sugar control, blood pressure levels, how long the patient has had dia-

betes, poor nutritional habits, cigarette smoking, and inherited genes. All of these factors can lead to blood vessel breakdown in the retina, but keeping blood sugar levels closer to normal reduces the risk and severity of diabetic retinopathy. Patients with diabetes or those at-risk should always engage in healthy nutrition, exercise, and consult with a physician as well as a diabetes educator. To preserve healthy vision, patients with diabetes should get an annual dilated eye exam from an eye doctor experienced with diabetes. They should also see a retina specialist if STR is detected during an eye exam. Finally, science-based nutritional supplements for the eye, like EyePromise, may support retinal health by helping to maintain healthy blood vessels in the eye. The adverse effects on eye health and vision caused by diabetes can be debilitating, but patients with diabetes can significantly reduce their risk of vision loss by proactively managing their health.

other tasks or have downtime themselves, naptime is part of a young child’s learning process. It’s when their super-active brains consolidate newly acquired info and store it in memory. What’s the typical “need to nap” for young children? Most kids take a morning and afternoon nap till around age 2; then they just want an afternoon snooze. By age 3, a quarter of kids have stopped napping altogether; from ages 3 to 4, about half will stop. And a final quarter of kids will nap until they are 5 to 6. Unfortunately, some preschool program administrators want to eliminate naps for 3- to 5-year-olds. But skipping naps won’t make kids healthy, happy — or smart! (Perhaps those administrators didn’t get their naps, since they don’t seem to have learned much since then!) So ask your child’s preschool about its napping policy. No nap? Find another facility, or convince yours of the importance of naptime. And make sure that if your child is 4 or older and still naps, your chosen facility will accommodate his or her schedule. AN OUNCE OF GINGER PREVENTION In 17th-century England, a pound of ginger could be traded for one healthy sheep! In fact, this gnarled, tangy spice has been valued as a seasoning and a medicine for thousands of years — it has even been Dr. Oz’s Herb of the Month. Currently, scientists are investigating whether it can help prevent colon and ovarian cancer. Plus it’s a must-have as you head into cold and

flu season. Its other powers include: Calming nausea. As a tea or cooked into a congee (a therapeutic rice porridge) it can ease morning sickness, motion sickness and sluggish digestion. To make the tea: Cut 2 inches of cleaned and peeled ginger root into small pieces or thin slices; put in a pan with a few cups of water; boil for at least 10 minutes. Stir in lemon, mint or lime juice — add 1 teaspoon of honey if your taste buds require! Soothing sore joints and muscles. Ginger contains anti-inflammatories called gingerols that can ease the discomfort of osteo- or rheumatoid arthritis, sore muscles and even headaches. You can drink it as a tea or grate the root, wrap it in cheesecloth, place in hot water for 30 seconds, and when cool enough, apply directly to your achy areas for 20 minutes. Keeping your immune system strong. For a sore throat, sniffles or the flu, try a powdered ginger supplement; ask your doctor about taking 250 mg daily (it’s not for anyone on blood thinners). The max, according to the American Cancer Society, is 5 grams a day. *** Mehmet Oz, M.D. is host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” and Mike Roizen, M.D. is Chief Wellness Officer and Chair of Wellness Institute at Cleveland Clinic.

Fecal transplant pills None of the gravity-defying balancing acts Ed Sullivan featured on his show (there were The Baronton Sisters, for example, who lay on their backs while spinning full-size tables with their feet) come close to the astounding balancing act that goes on 24/7 in your gut. There, trillions of bacteria work together to keep your immune and organs systems up and running. But when those bacteria get out of balance, well, running is a good word to describe what may come next. One deadly infection associated with a disrupted gut biome is Clostridium difficile or C. diff. Every year, half a million Americans suffer from the severe diarrhea it triggers, and about 14,000 die. Recently, fecal transplants from a person with a healthy gut biome to the intestines of someone with C. diff have proved effective in controlling the disease. But there’s a huge ick factor for many folks. Well, now there may be a way around that — a side-effect-free gel capsule containing a huge variety of bacteria extracted from a healthy fecal sample. Thirty-one of 32 folks who’d had repeated bouts of C. diff saw it go away after taking one round of pills containing fecal microbes. Interestingly, C. diff wasn’t eradicated; the balance of bacteria in their guts was restored so that the good guys controlled the bad. If you have chronic intestinal distress, ask your doc about bacterial replenishment. And everyone can keep his or her guts wellbalanced with a daily sup-

CONTROLLING MING FROM MONGO Flash Gordon ignited the screen in the 1936 serial about overcoming evil forces from the planet Mongo. But when guys get Hot Flashes, they can be harder to vanquish than that scifi planet’s Emperor Ming. That’s because it’s almost always due to permanent or temporary androgen deprivation (testosterone suppression) that is part of prostate cancer therapy. Around 80 percent of guys undergoing that therapy say the onslaught of flushing and sweating reduces their quality of life and makes it hard to sleep through the night. The discomfort usually stops a few months after ending the treatment, but for about 40 percent of guys who are on a permanent regimen of androgen deprivation, the sweats continue. So how can you ice the problem? While female hormones, estradiol (an estrogen) and some forms of progesterone are effective (up to 90 percent), they can trigger breast tenderness and swelling, and in some, can elevate PSA levels and cardiovascular problems. The neuropathic pain medication gabapentin cools down some men’s hot flashes. Antidepressants may provide relief, especially

selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), but some studies show soy protein provides a better boost to quality of life than serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) such as venlafaxine. If you aren’t undergoing androgen deprivation therapy and you have hot flashes, get your testosterone level checked and eliminate monosodium glutamate from your diet (bye-bye Chinese take-out). Then ask your doctor and pharmacist if any of your medications could be the cause — and if you can change meds or dosage to avoid this disruptive side effect. RAISING CPR STANDARDS When 51-year-old James (Tony Soprano) Gandolfini suffered a heart attack while visiting Rome last summer, his chances for survival might have increased if it had happened on a movie set, where there’s often a medical staff trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. But unfortunately for millions of people around the globe and more than 360,000 North Americans every year who have “outof-hospital cardiac arrests” or OHCA’s, your average bystander isn’t prepared to administer CPR, and the chances of pulling through an on-the-street heart attack are not great. In Detroit, OHCA’s have a 0.2 percent survival rate. In Seattle (the

U.S. gold standard), survival rates still hit only 16 percent. What improves survival rates, according to a Danish study, is a public education push that teaches how and when to do CPR, along with smarter medical-response procedures. Danish efforts have elevated their OHCA survival rate to an impressive 44 percent. For you to help improve OHCA survival rates in North America, here are CPR basics: —First, call 911; then start chest compressions. No need to do mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. It turns out hands-only CPR is the most effective technique for saving lives in real-life OHCA situations. —Place one flat hand over the center of the victim’s chest and your other open hand on top of that. Press down hard (chest should depress 2 inches) for 100 beats a minute. If someone’s available, have that person count with you. —Stick with it until help arrives, and ask someone else to relieve you if you get worn out.

No. 11 Titans sweep Panthers in semifinal By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer •

COUNCIL BLUFFS — Creston was unable to duplicate the performance of Monday’s regional win at Glenwood in falling 3-0 to 11th-ranked Lewis Central in the Class 4A Region 2 semifinal here Thursday. But, this time the opponent was much richer in talent. Junior Reghan Coyle smacked nine kills and senior Megan Driver and junior Abby Bergsten each provided eight in a 25-15, 25-22, 25-21 victory over the Panthers. Lewis Central’s aggressive serving accounted for 15 aces, but also 11 errors in three sets. “The shame of it is they have to play Harlan,” said Creston coach Polly Luther. “LC could beat many teams at the state tournament, I’m sure of it. All four 4A teams from our conference were put in the

same region.” Lewis Central (18-15) plays top-ranked Harlan (34-4) Tuesday. The match is scheduled at Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln, although with AL’s win Thursday night, that match may be moved. Creston ends one game below .500 (13-14) for the second straight year, but showed improvement throughout the season, according to coaches of both teams Thursday. “Oh my gosh yes,” said LC coach Dennis South. “They are serving more aggressive, passing better. It’s a quick defense. It’s wonderful to see the Hawkeye 10 grow the way it’s growing. Creston was 2-8 (in the Hawkeye 10) this season, but they beat a Glenwood team that went 4-6 and beat them in the regular season. So, yes, Creston made tremendous strides.” After falling behind 17-6 in the first set, Creston

played competitively the rest of the night against the state-rated Titans, who pushed No. 1 Harlan to a third set in a best-of-three match in the LC tournament. Creston was serving, trailing 22-21, in the second set before LC finished off the set on a 3-1 run. In the final set, Creston rallied from seven down to pull within one (11-10) on Nicole Haley’s kill and an ace serve by Brenna Baker. Later in that set, It was 23-21 on two strong serves by Sydney Dunphy. But, again, LC captured the final two points to clinch the victory. Luther said she hopes her players realize how close they are to getting over the hump against state-elite teams. “I hope they are convinced. It’s a mental

Raiders return to Van Meter By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

VAN METER — Back on Oct. 4, standing at midfield of Van Meter’s football field, Mount Ayr co-head coach Delwyn Showalter said he hoped maybe he and his team would be fortunate enough to get a rematch with Van Meter in the playoffs. The Raiders had just suffered their first loss of the season that night, a 14-0 battle with Van Meter, in a

matchup of teams that entered with undefeated records. Mount Ayr earned that rematch with the Bulldogs with a 30-7 win over Panorama in the first round of the Class 1A playoffs Wednesday night in Panora, while Van Meter advanced with a 41-0 win over Treynor. The Raiders constantly battled poor field position and turned the ball over five times in the loss to Van Meter on Oct. 4. “We’re excited about the opportunity to play them

again,” Showalter said. “We left the field up there that night, that was the thing we said, we wanted to get another shot at them. We get to go up there and see what we can do with them this time. We’re looking forward to the challenge.”

Harriers ready for State Cross Country Meet By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

FORT DODGE — Saturday morning, the best cross country runners in the state of Iowa will convene here at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course for the State Cross Country Meet. A total of 14 area harriers will be among the best cross country runners in the state, as nine area individuals qualified and five more are a part of the first Creston boys cross country team to qualify for state since 1988.

Class 3A Besides having the first boys team to qualify in 25 years, Creston cross country also set a new benchmark with three individual qualifiers — the most in a

single year in school history. Juniors Maria Mostek and Jay Wolfe, along with sophomore Cooper McDermott all qualified individually. It’s the third trip to state for Mostek, who is the only girl in Creston cross country history to qualify three times. It’s McDermott’s second trip to state after qualifying in Class 4A last year for Newton. Wolfe is making his first appearance at the state meet. Mostek finished 24th as a freshman and 27th last year, while McDermott was 71st in Class 4A. The other members of the Creston boys team are Ben Irr, Garret Taylor, Kruz Adamson, Brant Hudson and Zack Peppmeier. “We’re looking to im-

prove,” Creston head coach Pat Schlapia said. “We still haven’t hit our best yet, and each time we’ve been moving up. Especially in October, we’ve been hitting our stride. These are the times we talk about wanting to peak.” Schlapia said last Thursday’s State Qualifying Meet in Winterset was close to a total team race for the boys, but he’s still looking for a bit more out of the boys team. “Our engine is seven cylinders,” Schlapia said, referencing the seven varsity runners. “Putting it all together, that’s something we expect to happen.

Mount Ayr junior Riley Weehler tackles Panorama running back Alex Llanes during Mount Ayr’s 30-7 win over the Panthers Wednesday in the first round of the Class 1A playoffs. Weehler led the Raiders with 12 total tackles, including a sack and three tackles for loss.

The State Cross Country Meet is held at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course north of Fort Dodge. Fans driving to the meet can take Henry A. Wallace Road and Highway 92 to Stuart Road, through Stuart, where Stuart Road eventually turns into Highway 4 at Panora. Continue on Highway 4, which eventually turns into N Avenue and then Baxter Avenue. Turn right onto County Road D36 and then after 6 miles, turn right onto 230th Street, which will eventually turn into County Road D20 and then Kenyon Road. Make a slight left turn onto US-169 North and after 4.4 miles, turn right onto 170th Street. After 2.5 miles, turn left onto Nelson Avenue and continue for 2.8 miles to reach Lakeside Municipal Golf Course. Paid parking is available at the golf course and in the surrounding fields. The round trip from Creston is 236 miles. An alternate route would be to take Interstate 80 East to exit 110 for US-169. Turn left onto US-169 North and take it through Fort Dodge until reaching 170th Street. Turn right onto 170th Street and after 2.5 miles, turn left onto Nelson Avenue. Drive 2.8 miles until reaching Lakeside Municipal Golf Course.

Images of emotional moments show ‘essence’ of sports participation During our coverage of fall sports postseason action this week, I came upon two photographs that, to me, captured the essence of “why we play sports.” One was taken in the Glenwood gym at the conclusion of Creston’s upset victory over Glenwood in the quarterfinals of regional tournament play. The Rams had won the earlier meeting, 3-1, on the Panthers’ home court. This time, Creston came out with total dominance in a 3-0 sweep, when it counted. Glenwood’s only lead of the night was 1-0 in game two. I trained the camera on the players on the court just as the final point was being played out, with the other Creston players shown on the bench in the background. It played out better than I even hoped, as the Panther players — particularly middle hitter Natalie Mostek — showed a rush of emotion as her team scored the clinching point of the match. Everyone in the photo was showing pure joy and elation. A program that has taken its lumps for years had just done something unexpected by outsiders. But it was something they had worked

for, and knew they had in them. That moment is what you think about on that seventh set of sprints at the end of practice, or the 6:30 a.m. weightlifting session. Or the mid-morning skills work in a hot gym in June. It’s when you come together as a team and achieve something you’ve worked toward. A moment of proving something, to the community, and to yourselves. ••• Yes, both the volleyball team and the football team lost to highly-ranked teams with superior talent the past two nights. The Creston/O-M Panthers fell 45-7 to No. 1-ranked Sioux City Bishop Heelan Wednesday night on the Morningside field where former Panthers Alan Smith and Briar Evans now play; and the Panther volleyball team was defeated by 17th-ranked Lewis Central Thursday night. But no matter what the circum-

stances, when that “final” moment comes, and you’re a senior, it hits you hard. Contributing photographer Terry Freeman captured the essence of seniors and coach sharing one last huddle at midfield Wednesday night, after coach Morrison had met with the full squad. It was an emotional scene. Tears were flowing. These guys had all gone through a lot together. Three playoff runs. Beating Harlan twice in a row for the first time in Creston history. A district championship their sophomore year. Summer weights. Summer 7-on7 sessions. Camp week in brutal heat. Playoff practices in wet, cold conditions. It’s hard to let go when you’ve become family with a group of people working for the same goals. This group really wanted to lead Creston’s first team to the UNIDome. But, you have no control over the quality of your opponent, and Bishop Heelan is a cut above. State runner-up last year, perhaps state champions this year. I felt guilty having to do my postgame interview with coach Morrison right after that embrace

with the seniors, because it was as emotional for him as for the kids. But, deadline duty trumped sympathy, and I plodded on. Coach Morrison was gracious with his time, and thoughtful answers, as always. ••• It was fun to bump into Morningside’s Smith, the former Panther.

He’s pumped for his own team’s title quest, as the No. 1-ranked Mustangs could be headed for a showdown against No. 3-ranked Grand View come playoff time. I also spoke briefly with former Panther standout Luke Neitzel, Please see SHOTS, page 8A

who had begun a college basketball career with former Creston teammate Trey Thomsen at Simpson College. Neitzel, a two-time allstate football player and believed to be the program’s all-time leading rusher with 3,104 yards, is changing schools, and sports. Neitzel said he is transferring to Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs at the semester break to join the Reivers’ football team. He’s projected as a safety. It’s a two-year school, and Neitzel will still have four years of eligibility. Neitzel told me he likes school at Simpson, but he admitted he missed football. He seems very eager to get the pads back on. ••• Former Panther football assistant John Rose had some interesting, and poignant comments about the Iowa playoff system after con- Rose gratulating the Panthers for their successful season on Facebook. “I am happy that the Panthers were in the playoffs,” he said. “But I cannot help but think that the athletic association is not acting

in the best interests of the sport, or the athletes, when they devise a system that puts the fourth-place finisher in a seven-team district on a bus on a school night to travel a great distance to face the first-place finisher. “The Panthers at least had a winning record, but look at the lopsided scores and the records of many playoff contenders. (Two 4A playoff teams finished 2-8.) In my opinion, we have too many classes of 11-man football, and the playoff system is a joke. It’s all about money. “When we have to go to seven teams in 3A districts, it is time to acknowledge demographic trends in this state. We should go back to four classes of 11-man football, and allow those who cannot compete

to play eight-man, or better yet, nine-man, which is a much better game than eight-man.” Rose went on to explain that he’s seen his nephew in Minnesota play the nine-man version, and with two running backs and a wide receiver, or a running back and two wide receivers, it’s a lot more like real football than eight-man. I’m intrigued by that proposal, but not holding my breath that the state association will reduce classes and tweak the system, and by that I mean disrupt the revenue stream. Fans still travel to watch a 2-7 4A playoff team, and that cash buys trophies and pays bills. Contact the writer: Twitter: @larrypeterson Email:

The Southwestern Community College volleyball team rolled to yet another sweep, and in doing so, picked up its 30th win of the season. The Spartans defeated Iowa Lakes 25-14, 25-15, 2510 here on Wednesday, improving to 30-9 for the season and 8-2 in the ICCAC. “This was our 30th win tonight,” head coach Melissa Blessington said. “Our team played really well and I am very happy that we executed the whole match. We had great contribution off of our bench with Sydney Whitmarsh and Kirsten Anderson. It is great to know

that we are able to bring in players and have them make a difference.” Janaya Fox finished with a team-high 11 kills, as Shelby Sullivan added five and Allyson Kocour, Alex Duffy and Cassidy Yong each recorded four kills. Yong set 24 assists for the Spartans in the winning effort and finished with two blocks and seven digs. Molly Schimp Yong led the team with 11 digs and served 6-of-7 with two aces. Alex Duffy had a team-high three blocks.

dual threat quarterback. Brittain completed 12-of19 passes for 136 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the first meeting between the two teams. He also carried the ball 18 times for 49 yards. For the season, he averages 130 yards passing and 85 yards rushing per game. “Brittain makes everything go,” Showalter said. “He’s a good runner and obviously an outstanding passer. To me, the thing that makes him so effective is the threat of him being able to run. You can’t commit too many people to the pass, because he’s going to pull it down and run it.” Junior running back Cody Blackwell provides another solid running threat for the Bulldogs. Blackwell carried 18 times for 89 yards against Mount Ayr and averages 121 yards per game this season. “He’s a strong runner with a good burst of speed,” Showalter said. “Does a nice job for them both inside and outside.”

The Van Meter passing attack mostly revolves around three main targets — seniors Logan Crawford, Ben Flaherty and Grant Hoppes. Crawford leads the team with 30 catches for 489 yards and six touchdowns. Flaherty has 23 receptions and Hoppes 15. Crawford caught four passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting and Hoppes caught the other touchdown, finishing with two catches for 23 yards. Flaherty had one catch for 38 yards. Defensively, Crawford is the leading tackler with 76 tackles. Chase Wyant ranks second with 68. Senior Spencer Benton has seven solo sacks this year, while Parker Suckow has five.

Raider football After Mount Ayr’s past two wins, a 35-7 win over Pella Christian in the regular season finale and the 30-7 win over Panorama, Showalter has said he feels like Mount Ayr has gotten back to “Raider football.” The Raiders are playing with a more smashmouth

approach over the past week. “Our guys have really bought into being a power football team right now,” co-head coach Derek Lambert said after the win over Panorama. “Even thought we’ve got all this athleticism and speed, we’ve still got size and strength as well. We were able to handle the line of scrimmage well on both sides of the ball.” After turning the ball over five times against Van Meter in the first contest and only losing 14-0, Showalter said he feels like his team is very competitive with Van Meter, especially if it plays Raider football. “We left Van Meter that night feeling like we had played well below our capabilities,” Showalter said. “It was one of those games where every bounce of the ball seemed to go their way. We certainly feel like we’re very competitive with them.” Lambert said the players are ready for Monday’s rematch. “I think our kids are hungry for this rematch,” he

said. “Our guys are playing awful well right now, with a lot of confidence. “We’re trying to go to Van Meter and give them everything we’ve got.”

Health report Several players came out of the Panorama game banged up, but Showalter expects them to be ready to go for Monday. Cody Stackhouse injured an ankle in the first half and did not play the second half. Casey Paxson dislocated a finger and had it “relocated” in time to return to the game Wednesday. Meanwhile, Kyle Dolecheck bruised his hip late in the game. According to Showalter, none of the injuries seem serious enough for the players to miss Monday’s game, however. Junior Lincoln Martin, on the other hand, suffered a torn ACL in the win over Pella Christian and will have surgery to repair the torn ligament today. Mount Ayr (8-2) and Van Meter (10-0) will meet for the second time this season at 7 p.m. in Van Meter.

about leaving it out there on the course. We want to go up there and compete and beat some of these teams and individuals.” Mostek will toe the line in the Class 3A girls race at noon, while the Class 3A boys race is scheduled to go off at 12:30 p.m.

Class 1A The competitions in Class 1A will feature six area runners — Nodaway Valley youngsters Destiny Scar, Shane Breheny, Heath

Downing and Brayten Funke, East Union freshman Emma Harper and Mount Ayr senior Noah Larsen. With the exception of Scar, the other five runners will be making their first appearances at the state meet. Scar finished 16th as a freshman in last year’s competition. She is seen as one of the top contenders in Class 1A. Scar is currently ranked 26th in the state, while East Union’s Harper is ranked 29th. The Class 1A girls race

starts at 2 p.m. In his first season as a fulltime cross country athlete, Larsen has quickly risen in the Class 1A boys rankings, and enters the state meet ranked fifth. He is seen as one of the top contenders in the individual race. Breheny and Downing are also ranked individually for the Wolverines at 12th and 20th, respectively. Nodaway Valley’s Funke and East Union’s Harper are cousins, and will both be making their first state meet appearances together

as freshmen. The Class 1A boys race starts at 2:30 p.m.

Our blockers started getting more touches.” Natalie Mostek led the Panthers at the net Thursday with s e v e n kills and s e v e n blocks. A n g i e Mostek Sorensen had seven kills and three blocks. Sydney Dunphy was 12-of13 serving with a team high three aces. Like Monday, it was a battle of young teams. Lewis Central had the only two senior starters in the match. Luther praised the contributions of her only two seniors, Olivia Nielsen and Audrey Fyock.
