By KELSEY HAUGEN MOUNT AYR – Craig Winemiller lowers hay into a field for cow-calf pairs Tuesday afternoon using his pickup with Annie, Australian shepherd mix, riding shotgun. Atop an all-terrain vehicle, Suz Winemiller watches on, smiling, as cows and calves run toward the food. “It’s a way of life,” Suz said. Essentially first-generation farmers, the couple launched a cattle operation from scratch – and later a trucking operation, too, with the purpose of diversifying. Since, the operations have grown, but the majority of the work stays within the immediate

The Southwestern Community College agricultural department will hold a firsttime event Thursday to raise funds for students to compete in the National Western Stock Show in January. The ag club will host a dinner and live auction starting at 5 p.m. at the SWCC Ag Site, 1545 Green Valley Road, in Creston. Dinner will be served

from 5 to 6 p.m., with the live auction at 6:30 p.m. A meal ticket, available at the door, is $15 and includes pulled pork or smoked brisket, green beans, potatoes and dinner roll. Auction items will include home and agriculture-related items. “We’re raising funds for leadership events that our students are planning to attend and some field trips,” said Susannah Miller, SWCC agricultural instructor. “The students are planning a trip to the national stock show in Denver, Colorado. It’s a large livestock show and sale. Our students will also go out there and compete in livestock-judging contests, as well. The money will go toward their trip expenses.” It’s been a couple of years SWCC | 2A

Escaping wildfires meant fleeing through hell-like landscape GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) — With flames dripping from tree branches and the air filled with embers, thousands of people raced through a hellish landscape as they fled wildfires that killed three people and destroyed hundreds of homes and a resort in the Great Smoky Mountains. Fanned by hurricane-force winds, the flames reached the doorstep of Dollywood, the theme park named after country music legend and

local hero Dolly Parton. But the attraction was spared significant damage. The fires spread quickly on Monday night, when winds topping 87 mph whipped up the flames, catching residents and tourists in the Gatlinburg area by surprise. Police banged on front doors and told people to get out immediately. Some trekked 20 minutes to catch lifesaving rides on trolleys usually reserved for FIRES | 2A

Dow reaches records again as energy companies surge NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow Jones industrial average is trading at a record high Wednesday as energy companies and banks surge. Oil stocks gained as countries in OPEC, which collectively produce more than onethird of the world’s oil, moved closer to completing an agreement that would trim production. Banks are also rising sharply as bond yields and interest rates increase. Other U.S. indexes are little changed as big dividend-paying stocks like utility companies trade lower and technology and health care companies take losses. Keeping score: The Dow rose 65 points, or 0.3 percent, to 19,186 as of 10:45 a.m. Eastern time. Earlier it touched an all-time high of 19,225. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index edged up 3 points, or 0.2 percent, to 2,207 and also set a record of 2,214 shortly after the start of trading. The Nasdaq composite lost 18 points, or 0.3 percent, to 5,361. Oil watch: The price of U.S. crude surged $3.28, or 7.3 percent, to $48.51 a barrel in New York. Brent crude, the international benchmark, gained $3.63, or 7.7 percent, to $50.95 a barrel in London. At a meeting in Vienna, ministers from OPEC nations seemed to focus less on whether there would be a cut and more on how it would be shared among members. OPEC agreed to the preliminary terms of a deal in September, which sent oil prices sharply higher. But crude dropped almost 4 percent Tuesday as investors felt a deal was becoming less likely. Energy companies: Higher oil prices mean more revenue for companies that extract or sell oil, and energy companies made big gains Wednesday morning. Exxon Mobil picked up $1.59, or 1.9 percent, to $87.49 and Chevron rose $2.38, or 2.2 percent, to $111.72. Marathon Oil climbed $2.37, or 15.9 percent, to $17.32. Banks: Banks rose as members of President-elect Donald Trump’s economic team discussed ways to make it easier for banks to lend more money, which could lead to larger profits for financial institutions. Steven Mnuchin, Trump’s proposed nominee for Treasury secretary,

said the administration wants to make changes to the 2010 Dodd-Frank law because it makes it harder for banks to lend. The law was passed to prevent another financial crisis, but critics say it went too far and stopped banks from making loans that people and businesses need to spend and hire. JPMorgan Chase added 95 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $79.87. Goldman Sachs rose $8.22, or 3.9 percent, to $219.97 and Fifth Third Bancorp gained 56 cents, or 2.2 percent, to $25.95. Bonds: Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note jumped to 2.37 percent from 2.29 percent, its highest level since mid-2015. Bond yields are linked to higher interest rates. High-dividend stocks slumped. Investors who want income tend to buy those stocks when bond yields are low and then sell them again when bond yields rise. Utilities, real estate investment trusts and phone companies took the largest losses on the market. Duke Energy lost $1.67, or 2.2 percent, to $74.70. Mall operator Simon Property Group gave up $1.54 to $180.76. Health scare: Losses for medical device companies pulled health care companies lower. Baxter International lost $1.20, or 2.7 percent, to $43.43 and Becton Dickinson slid $2.94, or 1.7 percent, to $169.79 while Medtronic fell 70 cents to $72.72. Tech tripped up: Technology companies were in decline as well. Design software company Autodesk dropped $3.4, or 4.8 percent, to $71.62 after it gave a weak revenue outlook for the current quarter. Credit card companies fell, too. Visa dipped 93 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $78.22 and MasterCard skidded $1.20, or 1.2 percent, to $102.62. Currencies: The dollar rose. It climbed to 113.71 yen from 112.33 yen. The euro fell to $1.0600 from $1.0647. Overseas: France’s CAC 40 was up 0.7 percent and the FTSE 100 in Britain picked up 0.6 percent. Germany’s DAX gained 0.2 percent. Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 was flat and the Kospi of South Korea gained 0.3 percent. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng gained 0.2 percent.

since SWCC students have competed in the national stock show, Miller said. “The importance is to introduce them to a nationwide show, and they can really see the diversity in livestock,” she said. “It’s a new opportunity Miller for travel outside the state of Iowa for


tours and wedding parties. “There was fire everywhere. It was like we were in hell,” said Linda Monholland, who was working at Park View Inn in Gatlinburg when she and five other people fled on foot. “Walking through hell, that’s what it was. I can’t believe it. I never want to see something like that again in my life, ever.” “Hell opened up,” her co-worker Sissy Stinnett said. In all, more than 14,000 residents and tourists were forced to evacuate the tourist city in the mountains, where some hotspots persisted and a curfew in place Tuesday night. No details on the deaths were immediately available. More than a dozen people were injured. The extent of the damage began to emerge even as smoke from the wildfires lingered late Tuesday afternoon. The Castle, perhaps the largest and most iconic home in Gatlinburg, was destroyed. So was Cupid’s Chapel of Love, a wedding venue. Entire churches were gone. Scorched cars parked outside set on their rims after their tires had melted away. The only sound came from the eerie screech of hotel fire alarms echoing through the empty streets. Some Christmas decorations on lampposts and utility poles were on fire. Marci Claude, a spokeswoman for both the city and

some students and see how the larger shows are run and see what the cattle and other livestock industries are doing at a national level.” SWCC Ag Club President Whitney Baylef, a second-year student studying ag business and livestock production, has been helping plan the event Thursday and will compete in the upcoming national show. Planning the event has been about “getting involved in the community and learning how to put on a big fundraiser,” Baylef said. She and other second-year students will compete in team livestock judging, which involves

classifying livestock and deciding whether to keep the livestock for market and breeding purposes based on physical characteristics and records. “The importance of it is getting to experience a big show and the privilege of going up and judging the livestock. And, it’s just another educational adventure,” Baylef said. “There will be a lot of booths up there that we can visit.” Ag students who will compete have been meeting several times per week to learn more about team livestock judging, watch videos and practice what they will have to perform in January,

Baylef said. The auction Thursday will include products donated from local businesses, such as Akin Building Center, Farm and Home, AgriVision Equipment, Kelly’s Flowers, Red Star Feed in Corning, NAPA Auto Parts and Taygold Co-Op in Clearfield. Some students’ families have donated items, as well. Auction items include oil changes, car jacks, a grill, coveralls, home decor, dog food and more. There will also be meat-bundle raffle tickets for sale for $20 each, and the meat will be from Fareway.

the Gatlinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, choked up as she surveyed the damage for the first time on a media tour. “I’m just astonished this is my town,” she said. On an aerial and driving tour of the damage in and around Gatlinburg, Gov. Bill Haslam said he was struck by the seemingly random nature of the fire that destroyed some structures and left others untouched. Noting that much of the downtown entertainment district was undamaged, Haslam said “it just could have been so much worse.” As darkness fell on the area near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, open flames could still be seen burning near razed homes. A line of strong to marginally severe storms was expected in east Tennessee on Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning, with damaging straight-line winds of up to 60 mph and lightning possible. Gatlinburg Fire Chief Greg Miller said officials were still conducting searchand-rescue missions. “We have not been able to get in all of the areas,” Miller said. “We pray that we don’t experience any more fatalities, but there are still areas that we are trying to get to” because of downed trees and power lines. Though wildfires have been burning for several weeks across the drought-stricken South, with rainfall 10 to 15 inches below normal over the past three months in many parts, Monday marked the

first time any homes and businesses were destroyed on a large scale. The fire that roared through Gatlinburg actually began last week in the national park, and fierce winds carried burning embers into the city, park officials said. That original fire is believed to have been caused by people, national fire managers said in a report. Whether it was intentionally set or an accident hasn’t been explained by authorities. After the fire escaped the park, flames spread further when winds blew trees onto power lines, sparking new fires and shooting embers over long distances. Hundreds of homes and other buildings, including a 16-story hotel, were damaged or destroyed. Emergency officials ordered evacuations in downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and in other areas of Sevier County near the Great Smoky Mountains. About 1,200 people took shelter at the Gatlinburg Community Center and the Rocky Top Sports Park, an 80-acre sports facility-turned-shelter. Tammy Dillon had just come home from work when police banged on her door about 9:30 p.m. Monday. She said she drove through a fiery scene to get to Rocky Top Sports World, where she spent the night in a car. “We drove through flames, over hot embers in the road. It was awful,” Dillon said. In downtown Gatlinburg, workers at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies left behind more than 10,000 fish

“THERE was fire everywhere. It was like we were in hell.”

and other animals. Police escorted a team of marine biologists and life support experts back into the aquarium Tuesday, and the animals were doing fine, Ripley’s said in a news release. Based on preliminary surveys, the Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort & Spa in Gatlinburg “is likely entirely gone,” the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency announced. Although Dollywood was not damaged, more than a dozen cabins operated by the park were. Dollywood suspended operations through at least Wednesday. Its DreamMore resort will be open on a limited basis as a shelter and for registered guests. Parton said in a statement Tuesday that she was heartbroken. “I am praying for all the families affected by the fire and the firefighters who are working so hard to keep everyone safe,” Parton said. Patrick Sours, who lived with his family in a Gatlinburg motel that was probably destroyed, said he doesn’t think reality has set in for most people. “It hasn’t fully kicked in that, hey, we’re homeless,” he said. “We have no job. We have nothing.”

Going to college Wow what a surprise the Electoral College was! Who knew that a candidate could win the race for the presidency even though he didn’t get a majority of the actual national vote, like Donald Trump did? Somehow, that possibility evaded all the advisers buzzing around Hillary Clinton, who constantly and smugly assured everyone that they were the modern experts with the superior grasp of data, so worry not about Trump defeating Clinton. They are the same ones who are now bitterly complaining about the unfairness of the Electoral College. Never mind that it’s been around since the nation’s day one. Shouldn’t Hillary’s campaign leaders, with all their confidence, have figured out that they have to construct a strategy by factoring in the Electoral College? Now they are reduced to participating in a three-state recount led by the

King Features commentary Bob Franken

Green Party. Donny tweets that it’s a scam, and he’s right. Of course, he undercuts his complaint by tweeting that he lost the popular vote because there were millions of illegal voters. So our president-elect is still a fool. As for the Clinton people, they are the same sharpies who are too busy sipping their soy lattes to waste any time thinking about the Maxwell House and Folgers drinkers. But then we witnessed the revenge of the riffraff who had had it with being looked down upon, so tired of being ripped off by the not-so-elite elitists that they were willing to buy into Trump’s lying, racist, misogynistic, xenophobic cru-

elty. At least he pretended that he wanted to radically change things, although one can argue that by supporting such a demagogue, they became racists, misogynists and xenophobes by association, those who were not blatantly out-and-out bigots, but it doesn’t matter. All the Clintonistas were astonished to find that these people needed to be reached, their grievances addressed in language they could relate to. Blame Hillary for not grasping that wonkishness doesn’t get anyone’s juices flowing. In fact, blame her for not once, but twice – in 2008 and this year – assembling a campaign staff that failed miserably, ripped apart by the self-serving twerps who promoted themselves as much as her. Blame those of us in media for forgetting that our relationship with them is supposed to be adversarial. When Donald

Trump or Hillary Clinton or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama holds us in contempt, that’s a good thing. But when we try to cozy up to their underlings in order to grovel for the crumbs of news they toss our way, we are making a big mistake and forgetting our reason for being. Now we’re begging the Trumpsters to allow us access, through protective pools and the like. There are good reasons for mainstream media having such proximity, but there is no good reason for the begging. If Trump decides he will continue to shut out the press, then we journalists need to restructure our operation and do our reporting without him, independently, or as The New York Times guy said, “without fear or favor.” The Trumpster won’t like it; he will demonize us and he will use all of social media to distort his record, but we cannot be intimidated by any of that. And we should make it a point to shed

the stuffed shirt politicos whose hubris has resulted in the election of a dangerous demagogue who was appealing because he promised to blow up the system, but may blow up the world in the process. As for the Electoral College, it was one of the processes put in place by the founders to make sure there was some way to cool down the passions of the moment, to combat what many have called “the tyranny of the majority.” It would take a constitutional amendment to change it. Once you start tampering with the Constitution, it inevitably unravels, along with the entire nation. It doesn’t change the fact that Donald Trump has been chosen. The recount won’t change anything, either. He didn’t win as much as his opponents lost, by refusing to see beyond their own sense of entitlement.

Presents for people we care about Jane Shantz Creston

“Presents For People We Care About” is back for its 14th year at Creston Community Schools. This is a project that involves all children pre-kindergarten through eighth. Each child is given the opportunity to go shopping for people in their family at no cost, and will take place the week of Dec. 12. It will run from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We are looking for donations of gently used or new items that would make great gifts such as crafts, decorations, jewelry, presents for dads and grandfathers, candles and

lotions are just a few suggestions. Donations over the years have been very creative and the saying, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure,” definitely applies. We are also looking for gift bags, wrapping paper, gift tags and tape. Each year we have a number of volunteers who come be a part of the joy, and we would love to have you come as well. If you have any questions about donations or volunteering, call Jane Shantz at 641782-1155.

The battle for Secretary of State HOLLYWOOD – God bless America, and how’s everybody? Fidel Castro’s death Friday set off jubilation in Miami’s Little Havana district lasting into the morning. The eulogies were predictable. President Obama offered the Cuban people our prayers after Castro’s death, Trump called Castro a brutal dictator, and Bill Clinton said this calls for a cigar. Donald Trump was urged by Kellyanne Conway and Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee not to name Mitt Romney Secretary of State. They said in the campaign, Mitt was disloyal, backstabbing, critical and treasonous. No Mormon has been chewed up and spit out like this since the Donner Party. General David Petraeus was mentioned by Fox News as a possible Secretary of State nominee Monday in leaked reports from Trump Tower. Petraeus has already been investigated for sexual misconduct and mishandling classified information. So it would be like having two Clintons in one cabinet. Donald Trump named Amway heiress Betsy DeVos as his Secretary of Education. You cannot make it up. Only in America could a man who paid a $25 million fine for operating a fraudulent university one week be responsible for selecting the Secretary of Education the next week. The Secret Service may rent two unrented floors of Trump Tower for $3 million per year to protect the First Family. At last it

all makes sense. Donald Trump may go down in history as the only man who ever ran for president in order to get his forty-seventh and forty-eight floors rented out. ABC’s “The View” panel of women ripped Donald Trump last week for what they called his 40-year pattern of pursuing beautiful women at the expense of settling down. The sexes are different. Women want one man to satisfy their every need and men want every woman to satisfy their one need. Florida newspapers reported Sunday that Fidel Castro left an estate worth over $900 million. He probably saw his bank balance and ordered himself executed. What a waste of talent, think of how much more money Castro would have been worth if he’d have been a capitalist. The Cuban government lowered their flags to half-staff as the nation went into mourning over Fidel Castro’s loss. They’re going to make a national shrine and a tourist attraction out of Castro’s grave. The Cuban government thinks that they can pay off their debt if they charge 50 cents a dance. Miami Dolphins fans booed San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick for the entire game Sunday for defending Fidel Cas-

tro and communism at a pre-game press conference. The Dolphins beat the 49ers by seven points. Jill Stein has already raised $6 million for the recount. The Green Party’s Jill Stein filed for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania to draw donations and annoy Trump. The left is desperate to de-legitimize the man who defeated them. Democrats are nostalgic for the good old days when the worst thing about Donald Trump was his hair. NPR reported on Monday that the California Bar Association is considering passing a ban on lawyers having sex with their clients. It’s the legal profession’s oldest form of double-billing. If it’s not banned, it’s only a matter of time before attorneys start charging clients in two-minute increments. Donald Trump was ripped by loyalists for considering Mitt Romney as Secretary of State. He’s in a tough spot. If Trump refuses to appoint anybody who attacked him during the presidential campaign, the Trump administration’s going to consist of his wife, his kids and the Fox News Panel. Ohio State students were attacked by young Muslim Abdul Ali Artan from Somalia Monday with a knife. He was inspired by an ISIS call for knife attacks on Americans. It’s more proof that we can’t allow Syrian refugees into the U.S. for security reasons, it’s just too dangerous for them here.

Dragoon Trace Nature Center is coming to life MOUNT AYR – Ringgold County Conservation Board is excited to see the Dragoon Trace Nature Center coming to life. This project includes unique natural resources and creative funding alliances that will enhance the cultural, recreational and educational assets in southern Iowa. According to the National Wildlife Federation, “In the last two decades, childhood has moved indoors. The average American child spends less than 30 minutes in outdoor play each day, and more than 7 hours in front of an electronic screen. Childhood obesity rates have more than doubled the last 20 years, United States has become the largest consumer of ADHD medications in the world and pediatric prescriptions for antidepressants have risen precipitously. Our kids are out of shape, tuned out and stressed out, because they’re missing something essential to their health and development: a connection to the natural world.”

Pro-Ag Outlook and Management meeting scheduled Dec. 5 GREENFIELD – Plan to attend the Pro Ag Outlook and Management meeting Monday, Dec. 5, at the Warren Cultural Center Auditorium, 154 Public Square, in Greenfield to find out what 2017 has in store for area grain and livestock farmers and agri-business professionals. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the program runs from 9 a.m. to noon. This program is designed to provide participants with a concise evaluation of current market conditions, expected trends in crop and livestock income potential and management implications. The following ISU Extension and Outreach economists will be speaking that

Ringgold County is one of the smallest and poorest counties in the state of Iowa. The conservation board works on a very limited budget and even more restricted staff, employing only one fulltime staff. The environmental education budget stands at an extremely low $5,000, making large projects unattainable. This project is being funded by multiple grants, memorials, businesses and personal donations. The conservation board thanks organizations, businesses and individuals who contributed by donating or pledging funding to the nature center project and made it possible.  The nature center project will provide a diverse pro-

gram selection to the public that will cater to all ages. Live animal displays, habitat displays, outdoor education classrooms and more will make this a must-visit destination in southern Iowa. Along with displays, environmental education programming will be held at the center, making year-round programming possible. This project will improve the quality of life, health and wellness of Iowans. All contributions $250 or more will be permanently displayed inside the Dragoon Trace Nature Center. The board is still seeking donations. Call the Ringgold County Conservation Board at 641-464-2787 to contribute or for more details.

nization forward to ensure quality patient care and safety,” Neitzel said. “The DNV GL accreditation program involves annual hospital surveys – instead of every five years by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals – and encourages our team to share information and work together across departments to discover improvements in clinical workflows and safety protocols. Every department contributes to our success and our survey validated that. This is a win for GRMC, our patients and our community.” Accreditation directly impacts the quality of care because during the accreditation process, the survey addresses how the hospital treats diseases, stores medications, allocates nursing and other staff and conducts billing. “We found the surveyor’s interactions with our staff more educational and less confrontational,” said Amanda Mohr, chief nursing officer. “The sur-

day: • Chad Hart, associate professor in economics and extension grain markets specialist with Iowa State University (ISU), will discuss past, current and future prices. “Farmers know today’s price,” Hart said. “What I ask is how much did it cost to produce it? To make marketing decisions, farmers need to know their production costs.” •  Lee Schulz, livestock economist with ISU Extension and Outreach, will discuss profit potential in beef, pork and dairy, and global economic factors – exports, herd size and feed costs. • Alejandro Plastina, ISU assistant professor and ex-

tension economist, will address how to manage a farm business with low to negative crop margins. “It is important for producers and ag-business professionals to have a clear understanding of the profitability analysis for corn and soybeans in the state of Iowa, as well as on their own operations,” Plastina said. “Profit analysis, as well as being aware of possible strategies to cope with low- to negative-profit margins, are key to managing in 2017.” The session is free and open to the public; however, pre-registration is requested by Friday, Dec. 2. To RSVP, contact Adair County Extension at 641-743-8412.

Greater Regional receives accreditation from DNV Healthcare Greater Regional Medical Center (GRMC) announced the successful completion of its new accreditation process from DNV GL-Healthcare. By earning accreditation, GRMC has demonstrated it meets or exceeds patient-safety standards and conditions of participation set forth by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. DNV GL’s accreditation program is the only one to integrate the ISO 9001 Quality Management System with the Medicare conditions of participation. “The DNV GL-Healthcare accreditation program reaffirms our long-term commitment and dedication to delivering high-quality care and service to our patients,” said Monte Neitzel, CEO. “GRMC will be working to integrate the ISO 9001 quality standards with our clinical and financial processes during the first three years of accreditation.” GRMC has three years from the date of its accreditation to achieve compliance with ISO 9001, the world’s most trusted quality management system used by performance-driven organizations around the world to advance their quality and sustainability objectives. “We have voluntarily chosen to join the DNV GL-Healthcare accreditation program to move our orga-

Dear Heloise: What causes the HAIRY STRINGS to grow on carrots, and what causes carrots to have cracks in them? Oh, and are they still safe to eat? – Ron T. in Pennsylvania The little white “hairs” are small roots growing that are looking for moisture. The cracks can be caused by too little moisture or by the carrot trying to grow around something in the soil (pebbles, rocks, etc.). The carrots are safe to eat as long as they are not in any way slimy and still feel firm to the touch. Use a vegetable brush to scrub the “hairs” off, and check the cracks/ splits to be sure there is no decay present before eating. – Heloise PARSLEY SUBSTITUTE Dear Heloise: I rarely keep fresh parsley, although many recipes call for it as an ingredient or garnish. I do, however, always have celery in my refrigerator. I have started using the leaves as a parsley substitute, and I love it! I add it to soups, salsa and many other dishes. – Heidi

W., Hickory, N.C. Celery leaves are a great substitute for parsley! They actually have a great flavor that enhances recipes. There are so many foods that can be substituted for other foods, and I have my Heloise’s Seasonings, Sauces and Substitutes pamphlet filled with recipes and substitution hints. To order one, go online to, or send $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (68 cents) envelope to: Heloise/SSS, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Making tuna or chicken salad and find you are out of celery? Add some chopped water chestnuts or coleslaw for that added crunch! – Heloise SNOWFLAKE Dear Heloise: When I make waffles for my daughter during the holidays, I pour half the usual amount of batter in the center of the waffle iron. A perfect snowflake waffle emerges every time. She loves them! – K.C., Fort Worth, Texas I can see them on the plate surrounded by powdered sugar “snow.” How cute! –

Heloise SPICE BAG Dear Heloise: I have enjoyed Hints From Heloise since your mother’s days of writing them. I was making a batch of pickled vegetables, and the recipe called for using cheesecloth to make a bag for the spices. I didn’t have any cheesecloth, so I hit upon the idea of using a tea bag. I emptied the tea from the family-size tea bag, and put my bay leaf and spices in the empty bag. I even could use the string on the bag to tie it up. It held up during the boiling process (it’s meant to be in boiling water). Not one to waste, I put the loose tea in my tea ball and brewed a nice cup of tea! – Sue P., Walhalla, S.C. CUPCAKE LINERS Dear Heloise: Cleaning out my kitchen cabinet, I found numerous cupcake liners loose on the shelf. I grabbed an empty frosting container, and they fit perfectly! – Linda T., via email (c)2016 by King Features Syndicate Inc.


went through the 1980s farm crisis and got out of farming. By the time Craig and Suz each graduated high school, there were no operations or land for their parents to pass down. So, for a while, the Winemillers worked in town. But often after work, they would go feed their neighbors’ cattle or help with calving. “That’s kind of how it got started was just helping other people,” Suz said. “From there, we knew raising cattle was kind of in our blood.”

Cattle operation It was then a gradual process of obtaining cattle and starting the operation, located north of Mount Ayr. “It has changed a lot over time,” Craig said. “We used to do row crop, and we didn’t used to have this many cows. In ‘08 or ‘09, we started the feed lot.” The Winemillers now have about 650 head in the feed lot and around 300 cow-calf pairs. “We also rent a farm south of Highway 2, and there’s about 400 acres there that we rent, and that’s all pasture and hay ground,” Suz said. “We have about 100 head of cattle there that we calve out.” The family also works 80 to 100 custom cows. “There are people who want to own cows, but they don’t want to take care of them, so we take care of their cows for

them,” Craig said. Earlier Tuesday, Craig and Suz watched on as Tucker worked and Annie herded cattle into one of the cattle sheds. Without professional training, Annie learned to herd primarily by watching the Winemillers’ previous dog herd. “She’s the real worker,” Suz said of Annie. Later, Tucker would mix feed for the cattle – a job done twice a day. Using a skid loader, Tucker dumped portions of hay, hominy, corn and distillers into a feed mixer and then distributed feed to the cattle. The cattle each eat about 40 pounds of feed per day. During the summer, the family makes about 2,500 bales of hay to last through the cold months. “We all just team up and do everything,” Craig said. “Sara, she rakes hay in between softball games and everything she does. And, she helps us work cattle on the weekends.” said. “Now, we have five fullTucker added: “Whatever time guys we keep busy every there is to do, we just do it.” day hauling feed to local cattle Trucking operation producers.” At first, the Winemillers Using their six semis, the ophired someone to haul their eration involves collecting feed feed, but it was suggested to from ethanol plants and haulthem to purchase their own ing it to feed lots throughout semi truck.

LEFT, Pictured is Australian shepherd mix Annie, the family dog and cattle herder, riding shotgun in a pickup with Craig Winemiller as he heads to feed cowcalf pairs Tuesday near Mount Ayr.

“Something’s broke every day on a truck, and the guys don’t get home till 5 or 6 o’clock, so you might spend half the night getting the truck ready,” Craig said. “We’re pretty much redneck mechanics, but when it gets deeper than we can handle, we have a kid that works in town who will come out and work on them. He’s really good, and he’ll stay here as long as it takes to fix them.”

Building the operations While Suz said running a

trucking operation is rather odd, as not many farmers run such an operation on the side, it’s one that has helped them financially through the trials and errors and the markets for the cattle operation. “The markets right now are terrible. It’s challenging,” Craig said. “When you’re a little guy, you’ve got to diversify, and we decided to try something else to bring in some income.” The Winemillers’ goal is to build up the operations and, eventually, have something to hand down to the next generation. As Tucker bought his first 35

head of cattle his senior year of high school and works cattle daily, he’s the one most interested. Sara, on the other hand, wants to study kinesiology. “We hope to build something for our kids,” Suz said. As a small family operation, some days go smoothly, while others are trying. With this in mind, when the Winemillers built the cattle sheds, they inscribed the exterior of each shed with pieces of Biblical encouragement: one reads “Phil. 4:13” and the other “Ps. 37:4.” “So, when we’re out here fighting the battle, it’s a little reminder,” Suz said.

Carrier says it has deal with Trump to keep jobs in Indiana WASHINGTON (AP) — Air conditioning company Carrier Corp. said Tuesday it had reached a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence planned to travel to the state Thursday to unveil the agreement alongside company officials. Trump confirmed the meeting on Twitter late Tuesday, promising a “Great deal for workers!” Trump spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas. His focus on manufacturing jobs contributed to his unexpected appeal with working-class voters in states like Michigan, which has long voted for Democrats in presidential elections. The details of the agreement were unclear. Carrier tweeted

that the company was “pleased to have reached a deal” with Trump and Pence to keep the jobs in Indianapolis. A transition official confirmed that the president-elect and Pence, who is ending his tenure as Indiana governor, would appear with Carrier officials Thursday. The official insisted on anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the trip ahead of an 15th, 2016 official November announcement.

nounced then that it planned to move its Huntington manufacturing operations to a new plant in Mexico, costing the northeastern Indiana city 700 jobs by 2018. Those workers make microprocessor-based controls for the HVAC and refrigeration industries. Carrier and UTEC are both

units of Hartford, Connecticut-based United Technologies Corp. — which also owns Pratt & Whitney, a big supplier of fighter jet engines that relies in part on U.S. military contracts. In a September debate against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, Trump railed

against Carrier’s plans. “So many hundreds and hundreds of companies are doing this,” Trump said. “We have to stop our jobs from being stolen from us. We have to stop our companies from leaving the United States.” Carrier wasn’t the only company Trump assailed

during the campaign. He pledged to give up Oreos after Nabisco’s parent, Mondelez International, said it would replace nine production lines in Chicago with four in Mexico. He criticized Ford after the company said it planned to invest $2.5 billion in engine and transmission plants in Mexico.

Cody Crawford’s third 3-pointer of the first quarter went off the glass and in from about 25 feet away to cap a 25-7 first quarter for the Creston Panthers boys basketball team in its 65-29 home win against Mount Ayr Tuesday. Crawford went on to hit six 3-pointers and finished the evening with 19 points to lead all scorers in Creston’s home opener. The Panthers hit 10 3-pointers, nine of them in the first half, to jump all over the Raiders and secure

a running clock early in the third quarter. The 2-3 matchup zone that Mount Ayr ran on defense did little to slow the Creston attack. “It’s hard to focus on just Smallwood and Jacobson. They expose you so much,” Mount Ayr coach Bret Ruggles said. “ In our matchup zone, we’re still young. We’re not getting that opposite wing to come all the way over and take that corner shot. They were getting that corner opening and that was killing us most of the night.” Planning for the zone enabled the Panthers to get the open looks they desired. “One of our big keys for the game was, we knew they were going to come out in

a zone, was to really make sure we’re sharing the ball, passing the ball, keep the ball moving and when it’s your turn to shoot be ready to shoot,” Creston coach Taylor Phipps said. “Cody got hot and we just kept feeding it to him. It was fun to see us sharing the ball like PANTHERS | 2S CNA photo by KALEB CARTER

Panther wrestling cruises to two victories

By RYAN KRONBERG CNA sports editor

TRURO — Creston/Orient-Macksburg wrestling coach Darrell Frain wasn’t exactly sure what to do at 145 and 152 pounds during the Panthers’ dual against Interstate 35. Frain chose to put Mitchel Swank at 145 and bump Rylan Luther up to 152. Frain’s decisions paid off handsomely. Swank and Luther both won their matches by pin as the Class 2A third-ranked Panthers cruised to a 58-15 win over the Roadrunners. Creston/Orient-Macksburg won the evening’s other dual handily 58-9 over Nodaway Valley. Winterset defeated CNA photo by RYAN KRONBERG Nodaway Valley 43-18. Creston/Orient-Macksburg freshman Rylan Luther moves in on a takedown attempt of Interstate 35’s Jacob Steinlage “We debated,” Frain said. during their match at 152 pounds Tuesdsay in Truro. Luther won by a pin in the first period. “I couldn’t make a decision on who I wanted to bump at 45 and 52. I considered having him (Luther) at 45 and Swank at 52. I don’t even know why I did what I did.” The Panthers have a bit of a log jam at 145 and 152, giving Frain options. “We’ve got five guys that can wrestle 45, 52,” Frain said. “Whoever I pick it’s going to be.” Frain’s decision led to two wins by pin and 12 team points. “I said we’re going to do this and it worked out for us,” Luther said. Luther won his match by pin in one minute, 33 seconds over Jacob Steinlage. Luther caught Steinlage out of position. “He left his arm up one CNA photo by SCOTT VICKER COM | 2S

that.” Mount Ayr had an early lead of 5-3, but that stopped when Creston mounted a 19-0 run that culminated with Crawford’s shot to end the first. “Offensively I thought early in the game we did a great job of finding our open shots. We actually were scoring fairly well,” Ruggles said. Over that 19-0 stretch, Evan Jacobson and Kylan Smallwood combined for 10 points. Smallwood contributed 14 points and Jacobson finished with 11. Of the 14 Panthers to play, 11 scored. Creston went deep into its bench about midway


too many times,” Luther said. The Panther freshman was victorious on opening night. “It feels pretty good helping out the team,” Luther said. “It felt good that it was a good team and we were getting big wins.” Luther’s win was one of four that gave the Panthers all of the momentum in the dual. “Coming in with I-35, I didn’t know if we’d win,” Frain said. “We won four toss up matches. That makes a really tight dual look bad and it really wasn’t.” Two-time state champion Chase Shiltz, top-ranked in Class 2A at 182, cruised past Dante Arzani, ranked fifth in Class 1A at 182, with a

through the second quarter. “That’s one thing that we’re hoping that we can build a deeper rotation,” Phipps said. “It was good that everybody got extended minutes tonight, everybody got chances to run.” Buckets from John Shields and Jacob McCreary late in the second quarter kept things from getting too out of hand for Mount Ayr, trimming the Creston lead from 39-11 to 39-15. A 6-0 run by Smallwood alone at the start third quarter helped spread the halftime lead from 44-15 to 5517. With the running clock, the Raiders were able to run some effective offensive sets and score a few buckets in transition.

Isaac Grose and Dawson Frost were the leading scorers for Mount Ayr with eight and six points respectively. Maintaining strong effort with consistency on the defensive end is something Phipps will continue to reiterate. “We challenged them before the game to try and go for single-digit quarter every quarter of this game,” Phipps said. “We accomplished that and held them to single digits each quarter. That’s one thing we’ve been harping on. Defensively we need to be focused on every possession and not taking any plays off.” The junior varsity defeated Mount Ayr 59-37. Michael Scherer was the leading scorer with 15 points.

first period pin. “We anticipated them moving him away from Chase,” Frain said. “That’s what’s going to happen a lot. He stayed down and Chase dominated like we thought.” Kadon Hulett, ranked second at 220 in Class 2A, won by major decision 15-4 at heavyweight. “We thought we would let him have a match,” Frain said. “He handled that kid pretty well.” Jacob Goodson closed out the dual for the Panthers with a solid 4-3 win over Class 1A fourth-ranked Nathan Phillips. Opening night was a good challenge for Interstate 35. “We got woke up at some weights, which we needed,” said Interstate 35 coach Ryan Snyder. “We needed to get in some hard-fought action.” The Roadrunners tested

themselves against the Panthers best. “We didn’t try to get away from anybody,” Snyder said. “We went straight at them. We feel pretty good about that.” Going up against a team like the Panthers builds up the Roadrunners for later in the season. “I like to wrestle schools like that,” Snyder said. “We want to see bigger and better schools. We want to see better competition.” The Roadrunners pushed the Panthers hard. “We know what we’re going to get from I-35,” Frain said. “They may have some holes, but they wrestle hard. They came after us. “They wrestle us as hard as anybody we’re going to see.” Interstate 35 won its other dual, downing Winterset 4233.

Iowa’s 2016 shotgun deer season preview (IOWA DNR) —The first of Iowa’s popular shotgun deer seasons is Dec. 3-7 when an expected 75,000 orange clad hunters head to the timber. That group will be followed by 50,000 hunters who prefer the Dec. 1018 second gun season. Each contingent will also pack along thousands of antlerless tags, to extend their time in the field. Fans of cold weather purchase about 40,000 tags for the December 19-January 10 late muzzleloader season. Iowa’s shotgun seasons allow for group drives; drivers pushing deer toward blockers. Anyone in the group may tag a downed deer—with their own tag. That stands in contrast to other states — and even Iowa’s more solitary muzzleloader and bow seasons. However, it has proven to be an efficient method for taking deer, since modern deer hunting was introduced here in the early 1950s. Whatever the season, any deer must be tagged before it is moved or within 15 minutes — whichever comes first. It also holds the potential for danger, as drivers move closer to, or across, their friends on a drive. That’s why wearing solid blaze orange is mandato-

ry. The minimum amount covers a hunter’s torso. But more is better. For several years now, deer hunters have noticed fewer whitetails than in the early 2000s. That is by design. A decade ago, state lawmakers instructed the DNR to reduce the deer population, after steady growth through the previous few decades. With addition of county and season specific antlerless tags, generous quotas, and a couple extra seasons, near Thanksgiving and during January, hunters responded. Adaptive regulation changes have lowered the deer herd to mid-1990s target levels, in all but a handful of counties. Hunters in 27 north central and northwest counties have no county antlerless tags and may take only antlered deer during the first shotgun season. Iowa’s overall deer harvest across all seasons last year was 105,401, down 30 percent from the 2006 peak and the 2016 harvest should be similar.  The 2014 harvest was estimated at 101,595. “Now is agood time for the DNR to work with hunters and landowners to help develop a better understanding of proper deer management; including the benefits of harvesting does

and keeping deer numbers at ecologically acceptable levels,” stresses Andrew Norton, state deer biologist for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. “Hunters working with landowners at the local level are the best and most efficient way to keep deer numbers acceptable and provide a highquality deer herd.”

Basic firearm rules are important for a safe hunt The first of Iowa’s two shotgun deer seasons opens on Dec. 3, and while optimismfor a successful hunt is the primary focus, hunters are encouraged to brush upon safe hunting practices. Basic firearm rules are pretty straight forward: treat every firearm as though itwere loaded; always point the muzzle in a safe direction; be sure of your target and what’s beyond it; keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot. “Our deer hunting tradition is shared with our friends and our family,” said Megan Wisecup, hunter education administrator for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. “Practicing safe hunting techniques is important to make sure we all get home at the end of the day.”

An estimated 125,000 hunters are expected to take to the timber during Iowa’s two shotgun deer seasons and Wisecup said self inflicted injuries and property damage continue to be prominent. “Those incidents could be avoided by simply following the basic rules of firearmsafety and ensuring there is a safe backdrop prior to taking a shot. Hunters need to remember that it is illegal to discharge a firearm within 200 yards ofa building inhabited by people or livestock or a feedlot unless the owner or tenant has given their consent. It is also illegal to discharge a shotgunshooting slugs or a pistol or revolver on or over a public roadway,” she said. “Hunters tend to get fixated on their target and when a deer is running, they forget about their surroundings. Look beyond your target and clearly identify the target before taking the shot,” Wisecup said. “You must be certain you have a clear, safe shot. Never point your firearm at anything you do not want to shoot.” That advice can help to prevent self inflicted wounds as well.  Wisecup encouraged hunters to wear plenty of blaze orange and to discuss the huntingplan with every-

one in the group. “You want to be seen from all sides in the woods,” she said. “It is also important to discuss the hunting plan that will outline the role for each person and where they will be during the hunt.  Plan your hunt and hunt yourplan.  It is crit-

ical to communicate with your hunting partners to ensure everyone knows where each other is at all times.” In 2015, there were six deer hunting related incidents in Iowa during the two shotgun seasons: five personal injuries and one property damage.
