Two dead after drowning in Adams County pond More details will be available after a press conference slated 10:30 a.m. today at Corning Fire Station. ■

Two St. Malachy School elementary students died after falling through ice on a farm pond and drowning near their home late Saturday afternoon. According to an Adams Coun-

ty Sheriff press release, the sheriff’s office and fire department responded at 5:34 p.m. to 1623 Vanilla Ave., about eight miles northeast of Prescott. Nathan and T.J. Frey, 9 and 11 years old respectively, were located under the ice. Both boys were taken by air ambulance to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. St. Malachy held a short prayer service at 9:15 a.m. this morning that was open to the public.

SWCC accepts excavation, footings bids for new dorm By BAILEY POOLMAN

CNA staff reporter

Southwestern Community College Board of Directors passed motions to hire Seamus Excavating and Jensen Builders to start dirt work and footings for the college’s new dorm to be finished in 2014. Board members Vicki Sickels and Carol Saxton were absent from the special meeting Tuesday. The board voted unanimously to hire Seamus Excavating of Urbandale to do site development for the new dorm with a bid of $721,680. The competitor was Elder Corporation of Des Moines with a bid of $768,239.85. The estimated cost of the dirt work was $615,100. “They’re looking at making sure they have winterization costs covered in there,” said Tom Lesan, SWCC vice president of economic development. “Probably shouldn’t be that surprising to us. Didn’t like it, Lesan but shouldn’t be that sur- ■ Dirt work has begun. prised.” The completion date See photo for dirt work is expected on page 2A. to be Jan. 4. Jensen Builders of Des Moines was voted unanimously to put in the concrete foundations for the new residence hall. The company had a bid of $143,400, which was comparative to its competitive bid of $193,840 by Jordison Construction of Urbandale. The estimated cost of the concrete foundations was $165,900. Alternative costs were included in each bid, which covers a certain type of building process. Instead of building straight from the foundation, according to Lesan, the contractors would build starting one level up to prevent any problems during winter construction. “This allows them to basically trench out the footings and fill it full of concrete instead of forming it all up and having to backfill to protect it,” said Ken Rech, president of SWCC board. “That way it eliminates any fear of having frozen soil along the site during the curing process.” In other SWCC news: • The board of directors will hold a hearing and meeting Tuesday to vote on bids for things such as trusses and elevators.

The Adams County Sheriff department held a press conference at 10:30 a.m. at the Corning Fire Department. The Creston News Advertiser will have more information as it becomes available online at Funeral services for Nathan and T.J. are pending at Powers Funeral Home, junction of highways 34 and 25, Creston. St. Malachy will dismiss school for all or part of the day so fac-

ulty, staff, students and parents can attend the funeral. “Please help your child understand that it is normal to experience strong Walsh physical and emotional reactions following the death of someone close to them, and that it is OK to talk to someone else about how they are

feeling,” said St. Malachy Principal John Walsh. “Please let the classroom teacher know if your child is in need of extra support.” A grief counseling team from the Area Education Agency (AEA) will be at the school today to work with individuals and classrooms. Counselors will meet specifically with fourth- and fifth-grade classes. The grief counsel team will be available the remainder of the week.

OPENING DAY Deer shotgun season starts Saturday in Iowa. 100,000 hunters statewide expected to participate. ■


CNA asst. managing editor

This Saturday, Creston native Kyle Heatherington will awake long before the sun rises to illuminate the woodlands of southwest Iowa. Saturday is one of — if not — the most exciting days for Heatherington. It’s opening day for deer shotgun season and Heatherington and a group of about eight friends have high hopes of harvesting the biggest buck in the area. “I’ll be up early,” H e a t h e r - Heatherington ington said, “and I won’t get much sleep the night before. That’s just the way it’s been for me since I started going deer hunting with my dad and brother when I was 12 years old. Everyone has a passion. Mine’s hunting.” Heatherington will be one of more than an estimated 100,000 hunters tromping through Iowa timber during Saturday’s opening day for first shotgun season. Iowa’s shotgun deer seasons are the most popular among hunters and account for more than half of all deer harvested. Chad Paup, DNR biologist for south-central Iowa, said hunters will see plenty of deer this shotgun s e a s o n Paup with deer population locally comparable to 2012. Paup said hunters will benefit from the recent cold snap as deer have

moved away from open areas and into the woodlands. “The woods are concentrated with deer right now. Hunters should see plenty of deer,” Paup said. Paup said last year southwest Iowa hunting was impacted by Epizootic Hemorrhaging Disease (EHD) — a virus that killed deer across central, west central and southwest Iowa. However, Paup said the disease will not be a concern this shotgun season as cold weather has killed off the insect that carries the disease.

Forecast First shotgun season is only five days long — from Saturday through Dec. 11. Second season runs from Dec. 14-22. That’s a relatively short time frame to harvest a deer and often times, hunters have to adapt to weather conditions. That said, the forecast for Saturday looks chilly. No precipitation is expected in the Creston area Saturday, but temperatures at sunrise will be in the single digits with an afternoon high of 20 degrees. “Hunters are looking at 5 degrees at sunrise,” said Harry Hillaker, state climatologist. “That’s below normal for this time of year. The only good news, however, is


This photo by Tom Danilovich of a buck was taken in Union County. Hunters will have a chance to harvest bucks like this one when deer shotgun season opens Saturday.

the very wind conditions expected Wednesday will die down by Saturday.” Hunting hours during first and second shotgun season begins 30 minutes before sunrise and ends 30 minutes after sunset. Shotgun season is followed by late muzzleloader slated Dec. 23-Jan. 10.


Corey Carlton, game warden for Union and Ringgold counties, reminds all hunters to be safe this shotgun season. Carlton’s top safety tips include always wearing blaze orange while hunting Please see SHOTGUN, Page 2

and always keeping firearms unloaded while inside your vehicle. “Keep your blaze orange on,� Carlton said. “Guys will sometimes get hot while walking and will take off some layers of clothing. They’ll then forget to put the blaze orange back on. Don’t do that.� Carlton said statistics show the greatest source for death or injury during shotgun season is when hunters are so focused on the target that they forget to look beyond the target before firing. “They see that big buck and get tunnel vision,� Carlton said. “They get excited and don’t pay attention to their surroundings.� Other helpful safety tips include:

Don’t check out so close to me Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, about courtesy while standing in line at the grocery store: “If you are in line, please don’t leave your cart and stand next to me while I am swiping my credit card. I have resorted to leaving my cart between us to protect my privacy. “Please don’t pile your items so close to mine on the conveyor belt. I don’t want to pay for your stuff. (Heloise here: This is what the dividers are for.) “Please don’t pile all your items on the counter before I’m done with my transaction. — A Reader, Sugar Land, Texas” This can be a little annoying, but most folks don’t mean to bug you. Comments, readers? — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Here are other uses for contact-lens cases: • Use for small amounts of creams or lotions. • Store earrings in one for travel. • If it can be done safely, use as a pillbox. • Put lip gloss in one. • Keep extra buttons or small pins in one.

Horoscope Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Conversations about travel, politics, religion, history and philosophical ideas will really grab you today, because you have definite ideas — ideas you identify with. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’ll have no trouble defending your own best interests about shared property, taxes, debt, loans or anything you share with someone else. In fact, you might have a vigorous debate with someone. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a good day to put your cards on the table regarding close friendships and partnerships. Discussions will be invigorating, but they also might be aggressive and pushy (on both sides). CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re willing to work hard today, and you’re just as willing to persuade others to agree with you. You have lots of mental energy, which means you likely will get your way. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful, fun-loving day. Enjoy puzzles, movies, entertaining diversions, especially things that stimulate you mentally. Sports will be especially competitive. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good day to tackle repairs. Family discussions will be dynamic and vibrant. (Let’s face it: You want your way!) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today you can sell snow to the Eskimos. This is a strong day for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, writing, acting and public speaking. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Act on your moneymaking ideas, because your enthusiasm and energy will carry the day. Look for the edge that will help to boost your earnings. (It’s there.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Conversations with others will be exciting and vibrant today. You have lots of mental energy, and you’re keen to share your ideas with everyone. Yada yada yada. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Any kind of research that you want to do today will go well. You have the mental energy to delve deep to find what you’re looking for. You’re also obsessed with secrets today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Meetings with others will go well today, because you are enthusiastic and commanding in your speech. You’re full of bright ideas, and you know how to rally your troops. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs will be impressed with your clever ideas. And even you are surprised at how assertive you are in expressing yourself. YOU BORN TODAY You are a dreamer and a planner. You

have big ideas, and many of you have the technical expertise to back them up. You are private and, at times, secretive. In part, this is because you want to focus on your projects and you need time and space to do this. In the next year, you will work to build or construct something important to you.

Over 2000 Outstanding Calves & Yearlings!! With Special Feature of Nichols Sired Calves

National Zoo’s baby panda gets a name The National Zoo’s baby giant panda cub got an appropriate name Sunday. The 100-day-old female cub was dubbed “Bao Bao,” which means “precious” or “treasure” in Mandarin Chinese. Bao Bao is the second surviving panda cub to be born in the U.S. since China gave two pandas to the National Zoo as a state gift in 1972 after a visit

by President Richard Nixon. More than 123,000 votes were cast in an online contest to choose the panda’s name. The competing names — Ling Hua, Long Yun, Mulan and Zhen Bao — were contributed by Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai, U.S. ambassador to China Gary Locke, the China Conservation and Research Center, the National Zoo.

We’re easy to reach!

The winning name Bao Bao was submitted by Friends of the National Zoo, a fundraising group for the zoo. Bao Bao has yet to be shown to the public, except in photographs. Her mother, Mei Xiang, has been nursing her since her birth on Aug. 23. Bao Bao will be introduced next month. —————— ©2013 The Baltimore Sun MCT Information Services

Panther wrestling transitions to ‘new look’ Lineup lost six senior mainstays By LARRY PETERSON


National Digest

Hawks win AMES — Iowa won seven of 10 matches and beat host Iowa State 23-9 Sunday in their annual wrestling dual meet. The fourth-ranked Hawkeyes (4-0) beat the rival Cyclones for the 10th straight time and claimed the Dan Gable Traveling Trophy for the fourth time in as many tries. Top-ranked Derek St. John beat Iowa State’s John Nicholson 5-1 to clinch the meet for Iowa, which scored a pair of major decisions. Kyven Gadson, Quean Smith and Luke Goettl posted wins for the Cyclones (5-1). Iowa’s Cory Clark, ranked fourth nationally at 125 pounds, survived a furious rally by Earl Hall to win 8-7 on riding time and put the Hawkeyes up 10-6 at intermission. Topranked Tony Ramos then opened things up with another dominant performance. Ramos crushed redshirt freshman Dakota Bauer 16-5, which included 3:43 of riding time. Nick Moore’s third-period takedown of Moreno capped the win for the Hawkeyes, who can now look ahead to its highlyanticipated home meet with Penn State on Dec. 21.

Chiefs fall KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Peyton Manning threw for 403 yards and five touchdowns, four of them to Eric Decker, and the Denver Broncos held off a rally to beat the Chiefs 35-28 and seize control of the AFC West. Decker had eight catches for a career-high 174 yards for the Broncos (10-2), who moved a game clear of the Chiefs (9-3) in the division. With four games left, Denver also holds the tiebreaker by virtue two wins over Kansas City in the past three weeks. The Broncos have the AFC’s best record. Manning has 41 TD passes, breaking his franchise record of 37 set last season.

Marlin is the all-time Creston leading winner at 204-6, and Hulett stands fourth at 178-31. Marlin also became Iowa’s all-time leading pinner (147). The Panthers were 16-3 in duals (13-1 regular season) while pacing fifth at the traditional state tournament and sixth in their four straight appearance at the State Dual Meet Tournament. The Panthers also dealt with the death of teammate Dalton Hribal in a Nov. 23, 2012, auto accident.

The loss of half of the starting lineup — including fourtime state champion Jake Marlin and state champ Keaton Hulett — would seemingly create a massive rebuilding effort in Creston/O-M wrestling. But, coach Darrell Frain says there’s enough talent on hand to call it a “transition” year instead, as the 2013-14 team is unveiled at home Tuesday against Interstate 35 and Nodaway Valley, starting at 5:30 p.m. The cupboard is not bare as Frain, recently inducted into the Riverside High School Wrestling Hall of Fame, begins his 14th year at the Panther helm. He is assisted by Cody Downing and Matt Long. “I think your goals inside the room are the same, but you have to change expectations a little bit,” Frain said. “Those were five or six kids who were in our lineup for four years. It’s going to be a little bit of a transition year.” Instead of dominating meets with a run of pins and technical falls, it may be more of a case of grinding out some wins to come out on top. “We got a lot of pins last year, a lot of bonus points,” Frain said. “We might have more close matches. We just find ways to win, hopefully.” Last year’s collection of elite talent culminated in Marlin joining current Iowa teammate Brandon Sorensen as the 22nd and 23rd four-

Victory slips away from Spartan women Spartan lead evaporates in second half By SCOTT VICKER

BCS leaders Florida State and Ohio State are in position to play for the BCS national championship, though Auburn and Missouri are close enough behind in the BCS standings to put pressure on the Buckeyes. The Seminoles grabbed the top spot in the BCS standings released Sunday after Alabama relinquished it for the first time this season. The Crimson Tide’s wild 34-28 loss at Auburn dropped Alabama to fourth. Ohio State is second and Auburn is third. Missouri is fifth. Auburn and Missouri play in the Southeastern Conference championship game Saturday in Atlanta. The winner should get a boost in the standings, but it might not be enough to catch the unbeaten Buckeyes. Ohio State (12-0) faces Michigan State, 10th in the latest standings, in the Big Ten championship game Saturday in Indianapolis. Florida State is first in both the USA Today coaches’ poll and Harris poll, and rated No. 1 in the compilation of six computer rankings used in the BCS standings.

Panther team that won the Hawkeye 10 Tournament and finished second behind Glenwood in dual competition were state-qualifying heavyweight Nate Robinson, career 106-match winner Gage Cheers, Jacob Johnston, Cole Tanner and Katie Stevens.

This year’s team returns 15 lettermen and could again rank among the top squads in southwest Iowa, and contend in the Hawkeye 10 Conference. “Clarinda will have more kids back than anybody,” Frain said. “They were very young last year. Atlantic has some kids back. Glenwood graduated some good kids. We’re in a pretty similar situation.” Frain was asked about the expected conference favorite. “It’s probably a tossup,” he said. “It’s probably looked at as Clarinda, Glenwood and us, then LC and Atlantic.” Not all of the “star power” is gone from last year’s Panther team. The leading returnee is two-time state qualifier Trevor Frain, who placed fourth at 160 pounds last year as a junior. He was 54-5 with 29 pins, and already ranks 14th

Southeast Nebraska women outscored Southwestern 45-27 in the second half to overtake the Spartans for a 73-63 victory Saturday afternoon. Southwestern (2-7) held a 36-28 lead at halftime. Midway through the second half, the game was tied 45-45. With some quick baskets converted off of fullcourt pressure, the Storm moved in front by 10 points (57-47) with 6:42 left. Playing shorthanded with eight available players — freshmen J’myrehea Douglas and Rhecie Lee of Port Allen, La. were held out for violation of team rules — the Spartans again fell behind by double digits (69-59) with just under two minutes remaining. Coach Addae Houston said it was another case of a victory that might have been. “We gave up 45 points in

the second half,” he said. “We have to find a way to correct that problem. It’s the little things, executing down the stretch. For instance they were pressing us, and we had multiple passes that weren’t the right pass, or when it was, we were not coming to meet the pass and it was stolen.” The Spartans also had unfortunate timing when point guard Morgan Knorr suffered a leg cramp and had to leave temporarily late in the game. “That was a crucial moment for us. Unfortunate, when they were pressing us,” Houston said. Sophomore post player Darian Polson led Southwestern with 20 points. Jill Vanderhoof, freshman from Villisca, c h i p p e d Polson in 16 and Knorr

finished with 12. Southwestern was 19-of-22 at the free throw line. The teams play again Feb. 17 at Beatrice, Neb. “That is definitely a team we could beat,” Houston said. “We play them again at their place, and it will be tougher over there, but we played a consistent first half today and showed what we can do.” The Spartans jump right back into action tonight with a 7 p.m. matchup at home against Simpson College JV.

The Southwestern men’s basketball team had an 11-1 Southeast Nebraska team on the ropes here Saturday, but saw a seven-point halftime lead slip away in a 65-60 loss. Southwestern head coach Mike Holmes said his team played solid basketball in the first half, as the Spartans built a 36-29 lead. “We took pretty good care of the ball,” he said. “Making shots obviously helps a little bit. We found open guys, made some plays. Defensively, we were pretty good — moving with our hands off, taking away the rim. First half, we basically played about as well as we can play.” It was an entirely different story in the second half, however. Holmes estimated his team turned the ball over only twice in the first half, but probably 10 times in the second half. Many of those turnovers came at crucial times. “We had a gap from about the 13-minute mark to the

8-minute mark where we didn’t rotate very well,” he said. “They got to the rim, which should never happen. But the biggest thing was just careless with the ball. We can’t survive that way.” The Spartans appeared to be in a position to go down the floor and tie the game late, as Southeast Nebraska was inbounding the ball with :01 left on the shot clock and just :10 remaining in the game. But, Jarod Gamble found himself open on the wing near the end of the five-second window to inbound the ball, and knocked down an uncontested jumper to bury Southwestern’s hopes by making the score 65-60. “Last possession, we don’t communicate very well, and we let a guy slip to the wing and have a chance at a good shot versus a contested shot,” Holmes said. “Can’t win doing that stuff.” Mataika Koyamainavure led the Spartans with 20 points, while Larry Mason and Tanner Kellogg both Please see SPARTANS, page 8A

on the program’s all-time victory list at 127-35. He may wrestle up a weight class or two early in the season, but could end up at 170 at tournament time. Another state returnee is sophomore Wyatt Thompson, who may start out at 126. But, he could drop to last year’s 120 spot if senior Kruz Adamson, a two-time district qualifier, settles in at 113 pounds. There are 31 100-victory wrestlers in Creston history, and five were on last year’s team, including Adamson getting to 105 with last year’s 37-15 campaign. Several other letterwinners are in the lineup, and may be shuffled around from meet to meet depending on projected matchups. A newcomer will take over at 106 pounds this year, as junior Stone Hammons has grown to the 120 range. Freshmen Jacob Goodson, Trevor Marlin and Carson

Wheat are competing. Another freshman, Brody Frain, is certified at 106 but expected to see some time at 113 or 120 as needed. Adamson and Thompson figure to get the most work at 120. Juniors Alex Fargo and Spencer Wray, who missed much of last season with thumb surgery, are vying at 126, although Wray could be a regular at 132. Junior Bryce Briley is another candidate at 132.

Stocked in middle There is a logjam of veterans in the middle weights of 138, 145, 152 and 160. Frain could use several combinations, depending on the strengths of the opponent. They include 132-pound returnee Joey Huntington; seniors Garret Taylor and Zack Peppmeier, who have been JV standouts; and younger wrestlers Cameron Leith, Jackson Mikkelsen and Chase Shiltz. Senior Gavin Leith, a two-time district qualifier, enters the picture at 152 or higher.

“We have so many middles who could help us on any given night,” Frain said. “It’s a nice problem to have.” Shiltz is a five-time state AAU tournament champion, claiming last year’s title at 140 pounds, and has extensive national experience. “Chase probably has the most credentials of any freshman we’ve ever had coming in,” Frain said. “But he may wrestle up to 152. That’s asking a lot of a freshman. He’ll compete well for us in our schedule. As for the state picture, we don’t know yet. He’ll see some elite kids in Kansas City and get an idea where he’s at.” Gavin Leith and junior Tayler Pettit figure to handle most of the duty at 170, until wrestlers begin to move down in the lineup and Frain settles in at 170. Early in the season, Frain and senior Adam Baker could take the 182 spot, with either capable of filling in at 195. Sophomore returnee Seth Maitlen could be the 195-pounder at tournament

time, but is likely at 220 to start the season. Others in the mix are freshmen Kadon Hulett and Cody Tanner and sophomore Zach Hoffman. Senior baseball standout Trevor Luther, in his first year of wrestling, helps provide depth anywhere from 170 to 220, Frain said, with junior Chad Lamb also at 170. The only true heavyweight is junior Jake Gutschenritter, who joined the team at midseason last year in preparation for succeeding Robinson this season. The roster of 38 is slightly larger than last year, including 11 freshmen. “There are a lot of little brothers of wrestlers in that class,” Frain said. “In wrestling, you can lose a lot and still have a chance the next year. From first to last in experience, this is the hardestworking group. I can’t explain it, but they’re just all really good workers.” After Tuesday, the Panthers enter their first tournament of the season Saturday at Dallas Center-Grimes,

starting at 10:30 a.m.

Postseason This year the Panthers head west for postseason, with sectionals at Shenandoah Feb. 8 and districts at Atlantic Feb. 15. Top Hawkeye 10 teams and Albia appear to be the toughest competition for a state dual berth, Frain said, depending on the regional dual assignment.

Sports briefs Bearcats advance MARYVILLE, Mo. — Northwest Missouri State used a big third quarter to pull away from Minnesota-Duluth and won 45-21 in a second round game of the Division II playoffs. The Bearcats led 10-0 at the half and then extended the lead to 31-0 on three Trevor Adams’ third quarter touchdown passes. Duluth came back to score the first 21 points of the fourth quarter and pulled within 10, but the Bearcats iced the game on two short Brady Bolles touchdown runs. Bearcat defensive lineman Collin Bevins of Creston had one tackle before leaving the game with a knee injury in the first half. An MRI for possible MCL tear was expected to be conducted today. The top-seeded 12-0

Bearcats will host No. 6 seed St. Cloud State (12-1), who upset Minnesota-Mankato, 54-48. Game time is noon Saturday.

Intrastate matchup BALDWIN CITY, Kan. — Junior Ryan Kasdorf threw for five touchdowns, lifting fifth-ranked Morningside to an NAIA quarterfinal win over Baker, 36-28, at Liston Stadium Saturday. Joel McCabe caught three touchdown passes to help Morningside (11-1) lead 2821 at halftime. Baker ended at 11-2. Alan Smith of Creston is a sophomore wide receiver for the Mustangs. Morningside now travels to Des Moines Saturday for a 1 p.m. semifinal matchup against second-ranked Grand View (12-0) at Williams Stadium near Des Moines East

Congress lawmakers want ‘insurance policy’ for Iran deal

Orient-Macksburg 3-on-3 tournament

WASHINGTON — Key lawmakers said Sunday they expect to press forward with an Iran sanctions package that can be imposed quickly if the interim accord to freeze Tehran’s nuclear program fails to lead to a long-term deal. No action is likely in Congress for at least another week, as the Senate shelved debate for a Thanksgiving recess. The White House had cautioned against adding sanctions as high-level talks led by Secretary of State John F. Kerry were conducted in Geneva last month. Iran denies that it intends to develop nuclear weapons, and insists that its enrichment program is intended for energy and other peaceful purposes. The Obama administration believes Iran is inching closer to a nuclear weapons capability but has not decided to build a bomb. Under the interim deal, Iran agreed to freeze most of its nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief while negotiators try to hammer out a more sweeping agreement to prevent Iran from building a nuclear device. Any sanctions package from Congress probably would

be delayed to give those talks a chance. Republican hawks and key Democrats remain uneasy about the deal, which would allow Iran access to an estimated $7 billion in sanctions relief over the next six months. Tehran would continue to lose about $30 billion from sanctions during that period, however. Critics say Iran already is close to bomb-making capability, and the agreement does not force it to dismantle any nuclear facilities. Proponents of the deal say it grants United Nations nuclear inspectors unprecedented daily access into Iran’s enrichment and reactor facilities, and forces Iran to neutralize its entire stockpile of mediumenriched uranium, material that conceivably could be converted into bomb fuel. The senators have considered attaching a sanctions package to a mustpass defense bill being debated in the Senate. The Senate does not resume until Dec. 9. —————— ©2013 Tribune Co.
