Winterstien Construction of Creston offers borders, boulders to revamp landscape projects

By JAKE WADDINGHAM CNA staff reporter

F

or about 40 years Winterstien Construction has served the Creston area with a wide variety of construction services including concrete work from basements and sidewalks to poured walls and driveways. But when co-owner Bill Winterstien was diagnosed with bone cancer in his hip two years ago, he was unable to continue the heavy lifting associated with c o n c r e t e Winterstien work. Winterstien wanted to remain an active part of the company and continue to employ several workers who had dedicated several years of service. With the help of fellow co-owner and his daughter Melissa Driskell, they were able to transform the services Winterstien Construction offered with the help of Border Magic. “It was concrete related and it still gives us a chance to be creative and artistic and stay in a related business,” Winterstien said. “It was something I will be able to do for the next year or so and be more active than I am now.”

Drive 4UR School announcement

Creston Automotive officially announced Monday the Drive 4UR School program at Panther Field in Creston in September successfully raised $6,000 for Creston High School Booster Club. “It was a cold, rainy day,” said Terry Freeman with Creston Automotive, “but Freeman over 300 people still came out and supported Creston High School and helped raise funds for the Activities Booster Club.” An official check presentation is slated Dec. 6 at the Creston boys basketball game against Glenwood.

Veterans Day events

Several Veterans Day events are planned over the next week. Thursday, the public is invited to a Freedom Rock placement and flag raising ceremony at Creston Visitor’s Center located at 626 New York Ave. That event begins at 9 a.m. Friday, a Veterans Appreciation Breakfast is slated 7 to 8:30 a.m. at the mealsite inside the restored Creston Depot.

Winterstien Construction LLC offers Boulder Designs, a completely custom way to color, shape and design boulders for landscape projects.

Leading edge Border Magic — a continuous concrete border — is meant to replace plastic, wooden railroad ties and individual bricks for landscaping edging. The border can run along flower beds and gardends, help hold mulch around a tree or improve the looks of a sidewalk or driveway. “No job is the same, no rocks are the same, no borders are the same,” Winterstien said. “There is a lot of on-hand work ... It’s not a formed process, it is a freehand design.” Winterstien Construction offers free onsite estimates for Border Magic and can usually give customers the quote on the same day. “A Border Magic job normally takes a day, maybe two days,” Winterstien said. “Having been in the concrete business, we are used to moving a lot rather than staying in one place for weeks or months at a time.” The maintenance is also minimal. Border Magic comes with a 10-year limited warranty that covers cracking, fading and peeling. The

only upkeep is scheduling a reapplication of clear sealant every two to three years. Driskell said it is also convenient because it is easy to mow close to without worrying about bumping it out of place like individual bricks or cutting up plastic borders. “You’re not messing with the long-term maintenance of different kinds of landscape edging,” Driskell said. “It also gives a nice surface on the back to hold your river rock, mulch or dirt.”

Boulder designs Another product Winterstien Construction offers to help revitalize a residential or business landscape is Boulder Designs. “We can make boulders look anyway you want, but I doubt that I can make two to look exactly alike,” Winterstien said. Winterstien, Driskell and their crew make the custom boulders in-house from start to finish. The size of the boulder and the amount of detail in the design dictate how long it takes to finish and overall price of the boulder. A smaller boulder can be completed in a couple of hours while a large boulder

with a lot of detail can take more than 10 hours to complete. “They give us the information they are wanting on the rock and then we help determine the size,” Driskell said. “We use a 3D program that shows the size of the rock, and we can change the shape of it, color of it, all on the computer and basically sell the rock based on what it Driskell looks like on the computer.” Using Google Earth, Driskell can pull up a specific yard and virtually place a boulder in the perspective spot so customers can see what they are buying up front. Once the boulder is complete, Winterstien has a customer trailer to transport boulders safely to their final destination. If the boulder is extremely large, Winterstien Construction owns a crane that can be used to help set the rock in place. “We know that (if a crane is needed) ahead of time so we price that in,” Driskell said. One of the more popular Boulder Designs is smaller boulders with school mascots graphics. Winterstien and Driskell have access to hundreds of logos including the permission to use area school mascots. Winterstien said he wants to work with local schools to create a mascot boulder to sell at fundraisers. The first Southwestern Spartan boulder will be auctioned off at its athletic fundraiser on Nov. 16. Boulder Designs also allows Winterstien to design headstone memorials, mailboxes, pillars for fences and benches.

Union County hit with unexpected worker’s comp By JAKE WADDINGHAM

CNA staff reporter jwaddingham@crestonnews.com

During the 2013 fiscal year, Union County tackled two major bridge projects — 210th Street east of Cherry Street and 230th Street southeast of Thayer. When Union County set its spending projections for worker’s compensation, it did not budget enough money to cover the amount of hours set under the employment code associated with bridge work. A worker’s compensation audit revealed Union County is respon-

sible for about $25,000 more in worker’s compensation fees than originally projected. “I never would have is the amount g u e s s e d the county is the impact responsible would have for in worker’s been like that,” said compensation Phil Tyler fees. of Tyler Insurance at the Union County Board of Supervisors meeting Monday. “It’s a $25,000 lesson.” Based on the National Council on Compensation Insurance

$25,000

(NCCI), each job is given a fourdigit code to delegate the amount of risk that goes with each job. For example, the code for a secretary is rated much lower because of the lack of risk of injury on the job compared to the code of a bridge worker. Tyler added that companies have no say in the rates, it is set by NCCI, and Iowa has some of the most generous and expensive compensation rates. “We didn’t have any accident history,” said Union County Engineer Steve Akes said. “It’s too bad to get charged for something you didn’t encounter.”

Union County Auditor Sandy Hysell said the $25,000 will come out of the county’s liability insurance and there is enough to cover the amount.

Future plans While most fiscal years Union County does not do two major bridge projects, Akes and the Union County Supervisors are taking precautions to limit future worker’s compensation expenses. “We have codes for labor, materials and maintenance (just to name a few),” Akes said. “We might be able to be cutting, welding or modifying beams (for bridg-

es while in the shop) and we can code it for materials.” He said while building bridges in Union County is still potentially dangerous Akes work, it is not as dangerous as bridge work on an interstate highway. “We don’t have a lot of traffic or height,” Akes said. “Our jobs are much safer, but I see how they (NCCI) has to have some base for the codes.”

OPINION The value of going the extra mile

A dinner date two weeks ago with Stormy Lee reminded me the value of going the extra mile. Stormy and I don’t get out much these days, so we try to take advantage when the opportunity arises for a dinner, movie or social outing. Two Fridays ago, we gambled on a small Mexican restaurant in Afton called El Ranchito. I’d heard good reviews — and knowing Stormy’s love for Casa De Oro in Creston and other Mexican restaurants — we decided to make the 10-minute commute to Afton. The gamble paid off. Stormy’s fish tacos were perfectly seasoned with fresh vegetables

In Transit Kyle Wilson staff writer

and sour cream. My steak enchilada ritos — sliced in half for easier handling — had layers and layers of flavor. The atmosphere and food were great, but where the owners — Alex Mandujano and Roger Lopez — and staff go the extra mile is with their friendly service. Mandujano comes out and talks one-onone with almost every group that orders at the restaurant.

One by one, these owners are rightfully gaining business in the Afton and surrounding areas. They’ve earned my support. Now, that doesn’t mean that’s the only restaurant in southwest Iowa we support or will be supporting in the future. So restaurant owners, please don’t call me in outrage about this column. Stormy Lee and I are equal-opportunity consumers. I have one other going-theextra-mile example. Recently, we needed a home inspection done, and we had a rather aggressive timeline for its completion. Dave Moore of Secured Residential Inspections LLC in Creston came to the rescue, fitting our inspection in

on a Sunday afternoon. What these two businesses reminded me was going the extra mile really makes the person on the receiving end feel good. Give it some thought. What could you do to go the extra mile in your personal or professional life? ——————— Tonight, I will have full coverage on the Creston city election. I’ll be going to the polling locations around 7 p.m. to take photos. Polls close at 8 p.m. today. At that time, I’ll head to the Union County Courthouse to collect absentee voting information. You can track voting totals by following me on Twitter, @k_wilson85. There are four open Creston

City Council seats in tonight’s city election, including one contested race for councilperson at-large. Candidates in that contested race are Kevin Downey, Gary Lybarger, Paul Vandevender and Courtney Wilson. Meanwhile, running unopposed are Randy White (Ward 1), Ann Levine (Ward 3) and Dave Koets (Ward 5). Also, John Kawa (Park and Recreation Board) is running unopposed. As they come in, I will post voting totals on Twitter from each precinct and report the winner in each race when they are determined. See www.crestonnews.com later this evening for complete results.

Letter to the editor

Still remembering Bill Bowen From Lynette ShuteWaters Creston

When I first moved to Creston from Council Bluffs nine years ago, people weren’t very friendly. One day, while I was in my yard, Bill Bowen came by and started talking to me. Though his appearance was un-

conventional, I no longer noticed it because his kind heart was what was out of the ordinary. The Gospel says to be kindhearted and he certainly was that. A righteous man will be remembered forever. I have no doubts, Bill will be standing on the far side banks of Jordan someday, to give me another welcome.

John Kerry admitted the NSA monitors phone calls

HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? The Washington D.C. City Council ordered the police to set up prostitution-free zones in ten city blocks during major U.S. government events and protest rallies. You can’t make it up. Washington is so corrupt we just rope off areas where people actually follow the law. Rap star Chris Brown made news Sunday when he was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C . The singer punched a man in the face for trying to get into a cellphone photo with him. Out of habit, Rihanna drove herself to the emergency room in Los Angeles. The U.S. said four million Americans went on the ObamaCare website on the first day and six people bought policies. That’s six sales in four million sales pitches to the private sector. Jehovah’s Witnesses just sent a telegram to Uncle Sam saying welcome to our world. John Kerry admitted the NSA monitors phone calls of Allied leaders Friday. It harms relationships. When President Obama promised the Allied leaders that if they like their phone sex partners they could keep their phone sex partners, they all said their goodbyes. The White House insisted Friday President Obama didn’t know about the health care website mess or the NSA spying on allies. He

Topical humor Argus Hamilton

also didn’t know about Benghazi or the IRS targeting the Tea Party. It just proves the truth in the saying that ignorance is re-election. The White House was serenaded by its first group of Christmas carolers Friday. They were testy. No one wants to say people are mad about losing their health plans despite presidential promises but the carolers were singing It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Nixon. The White House admitted Thursday that ObamaCare will be more expensive than it was originally projected. Also, patients won’t be given much time for their medical examination. If you want a second opinion, the doctor goes out the door and comes in again. The Boston Red Sox enjoyed a huge victory parade Saturday along Boyleston Street to the Charles River. The ballplayers were still wearing the long beards they grew this summer. During a three-run double in the final game, the runners stopped to raise a barn. Lance Armstrong lost a court ruling Friday to halt a company from recouping the twelve million dollar bonus they gave him for winning the Tour de France. What

a mess. It just validates the motto printed on the Cheesecake Factory menu, that exercise just leads to prosecution, Huffington Post said Friday there are seventy thousand Americans over one hundred years old. Many of the men were lawyers, stockbrokers and government officials. It’s clear that golf needlessly prolongs the lives of some of our country’s most useless citizens. Immigration reform activists said Friday illegal aliens were only after the American Dream. It’s inspiring. The American Dream is that with hard work, a little luck and some scrupulous bookkeeping, anybody can die owing the government a huge amount of money. The U.N. declared Syria’s chemical weapons sites inoperable Thursday, preventing an U.S. attack on Syria. The cooperation was rare. The U.S. believes in the U.N. Charter the same way Roman Catholics believe in the rhythm method, it’s a great idea that it rarely practices. The NSA chief told Congress Thursday that NSA wiretaps are done only on terrorist suspects. That’s true to a point. If you call the NSA, the telephone recording tells you to press one to listen to the French leaders, press two to listen to Germany’s leaders, and if you have any dirt on the Republicans, please hold and the president will be right with you.

The stamps are in the mail Dear Heloise: I read your column in the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News and do so enjoy it. I have misplaced the address for sending away CANCELED STAMPS.

Horoscope Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You won’t mind rolling up your sleeves and plowing through red-tape details related to insurance matters, inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property. Just get it done. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Discussions about partnerships and marriage will be serious today. Talk about the division of labor and how to share expenses and cut costs. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Today you want to focus on your duties and obligations because you feel serious about life, not frivolous. Something from the past requires your attention once more. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel that children are an increased responsibility today. Indeed, this might be the case. (It goes with the territory.) Discussions with romantic partners will be serious. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Someone older or more experienced will give you the benefit of their advice today. Listen to this person, because after all, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Why not learn from others’ mistakes? VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Because you’re in a serious frame of mind today, you have the mental focus to tackle routine, boring tasks. You won’t overlook details. You just want to finish what you start. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Look for ways to cut costs to improve your finances. Business textbooks claim that cutting costs by 6 percent is the equivalent of increasing sales by 22 percent. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You feel subdued, conservative and cautious today. Therefore, rein in your spending. Keep your receipts. Ask for a doggie bag after lunch or dinner. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is an excellent day to do research because you are serious about wanting results and answers. Plus, you have the stamina, endurance and focus of attention to find what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Someone older or more experienced might offer you advice today. In fact, what this person offers could affect your future goals. Listen carefully. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.

18) This is a time where you see clearly what is working in your life and what is not. For most, it’s a time of harvest, because you are reaping the seeds you planted in the past seven years. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Discussions about politics and religion will be serious today. People want to know what their responsibilities are and what is expected of them. YOU BORN TODAY Your optimism and enthusiasm for life energize those around you.

This is why people like to be in your presence. You are selfassured and confident. You know how to entertain others in a delightful way, although, at times, you can overwhelm some people. This year a major change will take place, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2004-05.

Van Meter pulls away from Raiders By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

VAN METER — One month to the day that Van Meter defeated Mount Ayr 14-0 in a battle of unbeatens, the Bulldogs repeated the feat, sending the Raiders home for good this time with a 34-14 win in the second round of the Class 1A playoffs. “There’s nothing we can really say to make the kids feel better about ending a season,” Mount Ayr cohead coach Derek Lambert said. “It doesn’t matter when that time comes. It’s always going to hurt. Our kids are hurting tonight, and they ought to.” The first quarter quickly passed with Van Meter building a 7-0 lead on a 13yard touchdown pass from Brandon Brittain to Grant Hoppes. Mount Ayr sophomore Kyle Dolecheck picked off his ninth pass of the season in the opening quarter, adding to his school record total Dolecheck for a single season.

Second quarter The Raiders opened the second quarter by punting the ball away, but forced a three-and-out, taking over at their own 41-yard line. After a pair of Jacob Sobotka runs, senior Erik Freed took a counter play after a fake pitch, and bounced outside off the left of the offensive line, running away from Freed the Van Meter defense for a 42-yard touch-

down run to even the score at 7-7. It didn’t take long for Van Meter to answer, however, as Brittain connected with Logan Crawford on third and 15, and Crawford ran down the right sideline, for a 63-yard touchdown to put Van Meter back on top with 6:07 to go in the half. The Raiders methodically moved the ball down the field on the ensuing possession, converting on a pair of fourth-and-1 plays. With :26 remaining in the half, Mount Ayr called its final timeout of the half, facing second and goal from the 4. Coming out of the timeout, Sobotka was picked off by Zach Forret, who ran down the left sideline 96 yards for a touchdown with :12 left in the half, putting the Bulldogs up 20-7. “If they score there, it’s tied or they take the lead by one and they get the ball to start the second half,” Van Meter head coach Eric Trudo said. “That’s a drastically different scenario than being up two scores. We made a play and got a little bit, just enough of a block to get in that last 20 to 30 yards.” “You look back at that as a coach and think, ‘why in the world did I call that?’” Lambert said. “Four yards to go, but we had no timeouts and we were worried about the time running out. Hindsight is 20/20. You want to go back and change some things, but you can’t. You try to overcome adversity, and the thing our guys did all night long was they continued to battle and to fight. Really proud of our guys for how hard they fought.”

Second half Mount Ayr had an opportunity to strike back in the second half, but after moving the ball into Van Meter territory, was called for a false start on third-and-1, backing the ball up. “I thought we did seem to

come out and move the ball,” Mount Ayr co-head coach Delwyn Showalter said. “It looked like we had a little spark there. If we can take that one in and score, it kind of negates what they did right before halftime. But, the penalty put us off course and then we couldn’t recover from that and had to give the ball up. From that point on, we had a tough time stopping them.” Neither team changed the scoreboard in the third quarter, but on the first play of the fourth quarter, Brittain scored on a 5-yard touchdown run. Five minutes later, Brittain again scored a rushing touchdown to push the lead to 34-7. Mount Ayr sophomore Jacob Taylor capped off the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run set up by a 96-yard kickoff return by Freed. “We couldn’t sustain a drive, we couldn’t hold a block long enough,” Lambert said. “It just seemed like some of the little things that we weren’t able to do to get us over that hump. We needed

one of those long drives that took the time off the clock, kept our defense off the field, and we just couldn’t do that. Credit Van Meter for being a tremendous football team.” The Raiders end the season with an 8-3 mark, while Van Meter improves to 11-0. Twelve Raider players wore a Mount Ayr uniform for the final time Monday night. Seniors for Mount Ayr were Sobotka, Dawson Knapp, Jacob Beamgard, Quency Vos, Cody Stackhouse, Matt Poore, Ryan Parrott, Mason Mercer, Hagan Willis, Zach Vanderflught, Casey Paxson and Freed. “It’s a nice group, a big group,” Showalter said. “A group that’s been a big part of what we’ve accomplished over the last four years. We’ve got more guys in this group that have played varsity, several of them for four years. Quite a few of them have been three-year starters and probably two who have been four-year starters. I don’t think we’ve ever had a group to go through quite like

Bakerink, Taylor start season in Knapp Center By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

DES MOINES — Former Creston High School basketball players Spencer Bakerink and Colby Taylor played for Central College here Sunday in an exhibition game against the Drake Bulldogs in the Knapp Center. Bakerink is a senior starting post player for the Dutch, while Taylor saw time off the bench as a freshman. “I feel like this was a great test for us, a great opportunity,” Bakerink said. “I feel like after this game, it showed us a lot of what we need to work on and what we’ve been doing well. Our first game isn’t until two weeks from now, so we have an oppor-

tunity to get better, and we can use those two weeks and it will help us tremendously.” The Dutch open the regular season Nov. 15 at Monmouth (Ill.). Bakerink and Taylor agreed one of the biggest challenges in facing Division I Drake was the size difference that favored the Bulldogs. Bakerink, listed at 6-6 and 225, spent the entire game in foul trouble while trying to guard 6-11, 275-pound Seth VanDeest. “We don’t see anybody in the conference like that, and we don’t see anybody in practice like that,” Bakerink said. “So I guess the last time I saw someone like that was in high school with Brandon Scherff (of Denison-Schleswig, now a starting offensive lineman

three rebounds and one assist. The opportunity for Bakerink and Taylor to play together at the collegiate level is something they’re both excited about. “I think it’s awesome,” Bakerink said. “I got to play with him in high school when he was a freshman and now he’s here. I think it’s even more special that he’s out on the court with me.” “I love it, because we didn’t get to play that much together — only the last couple of games in high school,” Taylor said. “It’s a little taste of practice back in high school when I get to play with him now. I love it.”

for the Iowa Hawkeyes). I wasn’t accustomed to it, so it was kind of tough to get back into it.” “I’d say that’s the biggest difference between Division I and Division III, is the size,” Taylor said. “I doubt we’ll see anyone like that in the IIAC this year. A good test, though; in case we do.” Bakerink finished the game with one point before fouling out in nine minutes of on-court action. Taylor finished with two points on a pair of free throws, and also recorded a block and an assist in 12 minutes of play.

that.” “I can’t say enough good things about this group of seniors,” Lambert said. “All the hard work those kids put in, those are the memories they’re going to have and those are the memories I have of them. I’m really proud of the effort they put in to get to this point.” Van Meter advances to yet another District 7 rematch, this time hosting Ogden, which defeated Council Bluffs St. Albert 12-10 Monday night. Van Meter topped Ogden 35-28 in the first meeting between the two teams. “They’re a team that believes they can win, obviously, to go into a place like Council Bluffs St. Albert, and so we’re going to have to come ready to play,” Trudo said. “We’re going to have to regroup. Yes, this was a big win, but we’ve got to regroup and come right back at it Friday night.”

GREENFIELD — Des Moines Christian knocked Southwest Valley out of postseason play with a 2520, 25-20, 25-17 sweep here Friday night in Class 2A regional semifinal action. Des Moines Christian (28-9) meets EddyvilleBlakesburg in the regional final Wednesday at Pella Christian. Southwest Valley bows out at 21-10. “I thought the girls played well,” said SW Valley coach Lindsay Wetzel. “We just made some unforced, mental mistakes at critical points in the match. Des Moines Christian had a very big, good middle hitter that got quite a few blocks on us. And they had a good outside hitter. We didn’t do a great job getting some touches on her hits.” Junior Brynn Reichardt

had 16 kills and three ace serves for the Lions, and sophomore Ebby Prewitt added 10. Erika Veurink had seven total blocks. Marie Palmer led Southwest Valley with 13 kills and three solo blocks. Sydney Maines had seven kills and three blocks. The Timberwolves kept fighting, rallying from a 9-3 deficit in set three to tie it 12-12. Wetzel said the first season of Southwest Valley athletics was a smooth transition for the merger of Corning and Villisca schools. “These girls have a lot to be proud of,” Wetzel said.

QUICK NEWS: Continued from Page 1

Commerce, Walmart and IowaWORKS — is for all veterans and their spouses. Monday, Creston Middle School students will host a veterans program 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in the middle school commons. Creston senior Maxx Walters has created a veterans video for the program. Also, free “Freedom is not free” mag-

nets will be given out at the program. ISU campus shooting AMES (MCT) — The driver of a pickup truck who was shot Monday after leading police on a chase onto the Iowa State University campus is dead. Ames police say an officer fired at least six rounds at the pickup truck. KCCI reports the driver — 19-yearold Tyler Comstock of

Boone — was struck at least once. Police say the truck the man was driving had been reported stolen and the chase began after officers tried to stop the truck near Beach Avenue in Ames about 10:20 a.m. The chase ended a short time later near the ISU Campanile after the driver was shot.

Iowa Attorney General wants e-cigarettes banned for Iowa minors DES MOINES (MCT) — Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller is urging state lawmakers to ban sales of electronic cigarettes Miller to minors. During a Monday news conference, Miller also called for adding e-cigarettes to products covered by the state’s Smokefree Air Act and to tax them higher than the standard state sales tax rate. “Over the past several years, e-cigarettes have developed technologically, and they have grown quickly in popularity,” Miller said of the battery-operated products that heat liquid nicotine — derived from tobacco plants — into a vapor that the user inhales. “Our state laws, regulations and policies don’t address these products, and I think it’s time for the legislature to begin the con-

versation.” Miller said he was not proposing to ban e-cigarette products, but he does want state legislators to halt their sales to minors under the age of 18 who currently cannot legally purchase tobacco products in Iowa. Unlike traditional tobacco products, the attorney general said there are no state or federal age restrictions that prevent children from buying or using e-cigarettes. Miller said Iowa’s smokefree air act, enacted in 2008, does not address the new technology. He said officials in Arkansas, New Jersey, North Dakota and Utah have included e-cigarettes in their indoor smoking bans. Also, he noted that sales of e-cigarettes are subject to the state’s sales tax, while a pack of 20 traditional cigarettes is taxed at $1.36, a package of 25 at $1.70 and tobacco products are taxed at 50 percent of wholesale. “The Legislature first needs to define e-cigarettes,

and then determine whether the current six percent sales tax rate is appropriate,” Miller said. In 2010, Minnesota changed its definition of tobacco products to include e-cigarettes and subjected them to the state’s tobacco products tax. The Iowa attorney generally previously called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to prohibit the sales of electronic cigarettes to minors and to restrict their ingredients and advertising. —————— ©2013 The Gazette thegazette.com Distributed by MCT Information Services
