Work begins on $43,000 Creston city pound expansion

CNA asst. managing editor

A $43,000 expansion at Creston city pound began last month and is expected to help solve the longstanding overcrowding problems at the facility. This expansion is exciting news for Janel McLain and Marion Wagner of Creston who began lobbying for improvements at the facility in August 2010. “I’m elated,” McLain said. “It’s a good feeling to know there will be better conditions for the animals and for the volunteers who work at the city pound. I wasn’t going to give up on this project. I’m thankful the city saw the same McLain problems I did and we were able to work together to find solutions.” The city of Creston is paying for most of the project. They’ve allotted $35,000 toward the project. McLain and Wagner raised another $8,000 via fundraising.

Inadequate space After approving funding for the expansion, the city contacted Mycale Downey — director of Creston Animal Rescue— about the project because Downey spends the most volunteer time at the facility. Upon consulting her, McLain, Wagner and other committee members for the project — the city discovered the biggest problem at the facility in the past has been lack of

space to house the impounded animals. The current city pound — located southwest of McKinley Lake — is “about the size of a one-car garage” estimated at 400 square feet. That lack of space has caused overcrowding problems whereby animals had to double up in kennels or were forced to be caged outside — sometimes in extreme weather conditions. “That caused a lot of unneeded stress on the animals,” Downey said. The new expansion will help solve the overcrowding problem. The expansion includes a pole building constructed over the top of the existing building which will increase the total square footage inside from 400 to 850 square feet.

The new space will allow for two new dog kennels, storage closet for food and medications and office space for volunteer workers. “This project is a long-term solution for the pound,” Wagner said. “One of the best improvements in this expansion — in my opinion — is now we will be able to Wagner separate the cats from the dogs.” Other improvements in the new expansion include a new, bigger hot water heater, improved heating and cooling system, updated electric “so fuses

won’t blow” and extra space in the yard for the animals to run. Also, a concrete pad will be poured outside the facility where a kennel — with a sloped hard top roof — will be placed so dogs can be housed outside when weather allows.

What’s done? The contractor for this expansion project is Matt O’Riley Construction of Creston. O’Riley and his crew are in the beginning stages of construction. The posts for the pole building have been set in concrete and trusses are ready to be placed. O’Riley said he will work on the project as weather allows this winter and the project should be completed in the spring. “This is a fantastic project,” Downey said. “The space we have now is tiny. Right now, we do adoptions in the doorway on a TV tray. I’m thankful for this project. It will make it better for everyone involved — for the animals, volunteers and animal control workers.”

The Creston Panther coed and allmale dance teams — known as the Salts and Peppers — won first place in the state drill-team competition last week at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. Also, the female team captured their fifth-consecutive state championship in the large school lights division. “I have a great bunch of kids,” said coach Meg Haines. “Our success at state continues to bring in kids to our program and each year we try do find something new that sets us apart. I’m so proud of both the girls and boys teams.” The public will have a chance to see the dance teams perform at Creston High School gymnasium throughout basketball season. The dance teams will conclude their season in March when they host Jam the Gym.

Massive planet is breaking the rules, researchers say (MCT) — A massive planet found orbiting a star at a staggeringly great distance is smashing some long-held theories of planetary formation, researchers say. The planet, according to a study published online last week in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, is unlike anything in our solar system. Eleven times more massive than Jupiter, HD 106906 b orbits a sun-like star at a distance of 60 billion miles — about 650 times Earth’s distance from our sun. “This system is especially fascinating because no model of either planet or star formation fully explains what we see,” said study co-author Vanessa Bailey, an astronomy graduate student at the University of Arizona. Researchers estimate the planet is very young, just 13 million years old, and the residual heat from its formation can be seen from Earth as infrared energy. Researchers used infrared cameras and the Magellan telescope in Chile to capture images of the planet. (Until recently, astronomers relied on orbiting spacecraft to capture clear images of exoplanets. Now, Earth-based telescopes employ technology to com-

pensate for atmospheric distortion.) Astronomers are puzzled by the planet’s existence. Scientists believe that planets that orbit close to stars are formed from the gas, dust and asteroid-like debris that encircle a young star. They believe also that this process is too slow for extremely large planets to form so far from a star. Authors of the paper speculate that HD 106906 b and its sun might have begun forming at the same time, in the manner that binary stars form. In this case, however, the massive planet never quite became a star. Binary star systems are formed when two nearby clumps of gas collapse and form separate stars. Because they are so close, they orbit one another. “It is possible that in the case of the HD 106906 system the star and planet collapsed independently from clumps of gas, but for some reason the planet’s progenitor clump was starved for material and never grew large enough to ignite and become a star,” Bailey said. ——— ©2013 Los Angeles Times Visit the Los Angeles Times at Distributed by MCT Information Services

Panthers beat Rams in overtime Wolfe scores 26 in season-opener

By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer •

The gym was nearly empty, about 15 minutes after Creston’s season-opening game against Glenwood here Friday night. Jay Wolfe reached in a Tupperware container for a homemade cookie that teammate Cooper McDermott was passing around. Wolfe earned his cookie. The 6-foot4 junior poured in 21 points after halftime — 26 for the game — along with a team- Wolfe high 11 rebounds in the Panthers’ 62-53 overtime victory. “Early I had a little pregame jitters,” said Wolfe, after his first varsity start. “In the second half we all started

getting in a better rhythm. Glenwood is a solid Hawkeye 10 team, so it’s a good start for us.” It was the unveiling of a new Panther team, after graduating nine seniors last year. Only Wolfe and shooting guard Brandon Phipps had extensive varsity experience, while point guard Cole Thompson had been a parttime player. On Friday, 6-5 senior Trey Benson and 6-4 Alex Nielsen started in the post. Phipps and Wolfe were on the perimeter with Thompson at the point. Nielsen finished with 12 points and five rebounds, while Phipps and Thompson netted nine and eight points, respectively. Junior guard McClain Haines was a spark off the bench with seven points. As a team, Creston outscored Glenwood 20-11 at the free throw line, finishing 20of-30 for 67 percent. Glenwood was one of the top projected teams in the

Hawkeye 10 this season, returning 6-4 forward Corey Bertini and 5-11 guard Braden Wheeler to the starting lineup, and senior guard Gage Shatava with extensive varsity experience. Add 6-7 center Drew Konfrst and 6-8 Jacob Lewis inside, and the Rams displayed a physical presence against the inexperienced Panthers. “They had a really good JV team last year and then you have those 6-7 and 6-8 guys,” said Creston coach Billy Hiatt. “So, yeah, this is a great win for our guys. The workouts we’ve done in the weight room have paid off. Coach (Anthony) Donahoo has done a great job of getting us ready, physically.”

Interior defense Hiatt also praised the likes of Benson, Nielsen, Wolfe and reserve Jake Miller for their consistent inside defense, limiting the Rams’ opportunities around the basket.

“Coach (Michael) West is in charge of our posts, and that’s the best post defense I’ve seen us play in a while,” Hiatt said. “We were fronting and moving around on them. Briar Evans was really good at that last year, and our guys tonight just carried that through.” Glenwood coach Curt Schulte said his team went away from its physical advantage, which especially proved to be a problem when Bertini fouled out with a team-high 15 points with 2:30 left in overtime. “He’s kind of our go-to man, so that hurt,” Schulte said. “I think Creston played well down in the post, but in the second half we got some better looks and we kind of went away from that. We were hoping to stick with it.” Creston held a 22-16 halfCNA photo by LARRY PETERSON time lead in a rugged, physical Creston senior center Trey Benson puts up a shot in the

Creston/O-M comes from behind for DCG title

By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer •

GRIMES —The Creston/O-M wrestling team surged past Webster City in the final round to claim the championship of the Dallas Center-Grimes Invitational Saturday. The Lynx, with 13 returning starters from last year’s North Central Conference runnerup team, trailed Creston/O-M 132-126 after the quarterfinal round. Then Webster City went 2-1 in head-to-head semifinal matches while placing seven wrestlers in the finals, pushing into first place by a 10.5-point margin over the Panthers. The final round was a different story. Webster City went 1-6 in championship matches — including 1-1 against the Panthers — while the Panthers went 4-1 in title bouts. That was enough to give

the championship trophy to Creston/O-M with 214.5 points, while Webster City finished second with 207.5 points. Host Dallas CenterGrimes matched Creston/OM with four champions and took third with 187.5. The Panthers also won last year’s title in their first appearance in the tournament. “We had a really good last round,” said Creston/O-M coach Darrell Frain. “The four (champions) we got, I thought most of them would have a shot, but we had some tough brackets. I didn’t know if some of the moves were right in moving up as far as we did in some cases, but they found a way to win.” Panther champions were Wyatt Thompson (126 pounds), Spencer Wray (138), freshman Chase Shiltz (152) and Trevor Fran at 195 pounds to win a rugged field of rated wrestlers. Frain, rated third at 170 and weighing in at 178, took

on fifth-ranked 195-pounder Dylan Fielder of Webster City, a two-time state placewinner. Fielder reached the

finals by knocking off Class 3A top-ranked John Ware of Ankeny Centennial, 7-5. Frain then decisioned

Fielder in the finals, 6-2. “It was 0-0 after one, then Trevor got an escape in the second,” coach Frain said.

“He got a takedown and tilted him once. (Fielder’s) points were on two escapes. He slowed down the match and frustrated him.” Frain said Thompson wrestled in control in some tight matches, including 2-1 in the finals and 4-0 in the semifinals. Wray fought from behind in some matches, topping a returning district qualifier in the finals. Shiltz had a strong day, taking a 9-5 semifinal decision over Webster City’s Tanner Hild, who was 18-5 a year ago. In the finals, Shiltz won by a fall in 3:37 over Grinnell junior Garrett Jay, brother of former Panther wrestler Brody Jay. “Chase had a real good day,” Frain said. “There was a faster pace to his matches than the other night. He beat the number one seed in the semifinals.” Please see WRESTLING, page 6A

Shorthanded Diagonal falls to Murray Cold shooting night By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

MURRAY — All Diagonal head boys basketball coach Matt Warren could do was shake his head following his team’s 62-60 loss to Murray here Friday. “I’ll remember this game for the rest of my life,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it, finishing a game with only three people. I couldn’t be more proud of the guys, the way they battled, and against a good, good team. We were just so close. I don’t know how to put it into words.”

The Maroons were playing without two of their post players as senior Ryan Parrott is out with mononucleosis and sophomore Kade Means tore his meniscus, leaving Diagonal with just seven available players for Friday’s Bluegrass Conference game. Still, the undermanned Maroons appeared to be in good shape, tied at 29-29 with the Mustangs at halftime on the strength of sophomore Jacob Taylor’s 17 first-half points. At that point, Murray found itself in serious foul trouble, as starters Andrew Rider, Trey McHenry and Sam Rockhold all entered

halftime with three fouls.

Reversed fortunes But, Murray head coach Darin Wookey switched to a 2-3 zone to start the second half of the game in order to protect his players from getting into further foul trouble. Meanwhile, within the first four minutes of the second half, Diagonal had two players with four fouls and two others with three fouls, trailing 44-40. Colter Pickering hit 1-of-2 free throws and then Taylor took over again, hitting a floater in the lane, followed by a pullup 3-pointer, leading to a Murray timeout with 1:22 to go in the third with Diagonal leading 46-44. Pickering fouled out shortly after the timeout, and Levi Jarred picked up his fourth foul. But Taylor hit another 3-pointer just before the buzzer to give Diagonal a 4944 lead heading to the fourth quarter. Rider banked in a 3-pointer to tie the game at 49-49 and then Diagonal sophomore Gerad Naill, who hit two big 3-pointers in the third quarter, fouled out with 6:41 to go, leaving the Maroons with just five players.

Man down


Diagonal sophomore Jacob Taylor (13) drives toward the basket past Murray junior Trey McHenry (10) during a 62-60 loss to the Mustangs on Friday. Taylor finished with a game-high 30 points, knocking down five 3-pointers in the loss. McHenry scored 13 points with eight rebounds for Murray.

Jarred fouled out with 3:17 left in the game, giving Diagonal just four players. Rockhold knocked d o w n both free throws for Murray, giving the Rockhold

Mustangs a 57-51 lead. Rockhold led Murray with 14 points, including 12of-14 shooting at the free throw line, and 15 rebounds. Pat Kilmer added 12 points and 10 rebounds. McHenry pitched in 13 points with eight boards. But being down a man didn’t stop Diagonal. Blake Butler hit a pullup jumper and after Rider went 1-of-2 at the line, Taylor knocked down two free throws to close the game to 58-55. Butler drove baseline for another bucket, making it a one-point game with 1:49 to go. After a Murray timeout, McHenry hit a jumper to make it 60-57 in favor of Murray. But Taylor stepped up one more time, dribbling to his left, the southpaw pulled up on a dime and knocked down a 3-pointer fading away from the basket to tie the game at 60-60 with his 30th point of the game. After Fisher Decker went 1-of-2 at the free throw line, Taylor fouled out with :48.8 left in the game, leaving Diagonal with just three players on the floor. Pat Kilmer went to the line, where he made 1-of2 attempts, making the score 62-60. Diagonal inbounded the ball, and with about :34 remaining in the game, foreignexchange student Ismail Omar, who had never played basketball before this year, let loose a 3-point attempt from the right wing.

sinks Creston girls By SCOTT VICKER

GLENWOOD — The Creston girls basketball team played close for one half, but couldn’t overcome a cold shooting night from the floor in a 58-35 loss to Glenwood here Friday. The Panthers fall to 2-2 for the season with the loss and 0-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference. Glenwood improved to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in the conference. “For the game, we just didn’t shoot very well,” head coach Larry McNutt said. “We missed a lot of 10 to 12-footers. Second half, they double teamed Jenna (Taylor) a lot, and we just didn’t do a very good job of making 10 to 12-foot shots. Those are shots we have to make and are capable of making.” The Panthers shot just 12of-51 from the field (23 percent) in the loss, including just 26 percent shooting from inside the 3-point arc. In comparison, Glenwood shot 54 percent from the field. Sophomore Jenna Taylor continued her strong start to the season with 18 points and nine rebounds. Taylor shot 6-of- Taylor 10 from the field and 6-of-6 from the free throw line.

“A lot of those points came in the first half,” McNutt said. “She was 6-of-6 from the line. That’s basically three baskets, because every time she gets fouled, they’re trying to keep her from scoring.” The Panthers trailed just 11-8 after the first quarter and 25-20 at the end of the first half, but with Taylor not getting as many good looks in the second half, and Glenwood’s defensive pressure, the Rams outscored Creston 33-15 in the second half. “We beat the press several times, but we couldn’t convert it to easy layups,” McNutt said. “The game was a lot closer than the score indicated. It started to get away from us in the fourth quarter. We feel like we can beat them at home if we play well. We just didn’t shoot the ball very well on Friday night.” Junior Natalie Mostek returned to the Panther lineup Friday night, coming off the bench to score two points and grab five rebounds. McNutt said she only played a few minutes each quarter, while she tries to build her stamina back up and get back into basketball shape. “I thought we played hard,” McNutt said. “We did a lot of good things defensively. We just didn’t find a way to make a few open shots. I think if we can do that, we can be Please see CRESTON, page 7A

defensive battle. “Nothing was coming easy,” Schulte said. “This was two teams just getting after each other, defensively.” The margin was similar (32-27) entering the fourth quarter, but the Rams went on a run to take a 39-37 lead with four minutes to play. During the next minute Wolfe sank a field goal and 3-pointer to push the Panthers in front 44-40. But, again, that lead didn’t hold up. Lewis scored inside to tie it 46-46 with 35 seconds left. Nielsen’s shot was off the mark at 2.7 seconds. Glenwood rebounded, but Phipps stole the pass near midcourt. A desperate attempt for a timeout by Hiatt went unheeded, sending the game into overtime.

Overtime edge Aggressive drives to the basket paid off for the Panthers in the extra four-minute session, as Wolfe’s two free throws and a drive in

the lane lifted the hosts to a 56-50 lead with just over a minute to play. Thompson, Wolfe and Phipps finished the scoring at the free throw line as Glenwood fouled to stop the clock and gain possession. “We were being strong with the ball and getting to the free throw line, which is a big emphasis with coach Hiatt this year,” Wolfe said. “On defense our backside help and rotations were good. We’re trying to help each other out and play good team basketball.” Glenwood falls to 0-2, having opened with a 5957 overtime loss to Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson. Creston starts a busy week Tuesday at Shenandoah, followed by a road trip to Atlantic Friday and game at 5 p.m. Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena against ADM (Adel) preceding an Iowa Energy NBA ‘D’ League game. Tickets are available at the high school activities office.

JUNIOR VARSITY Creston led 12-11 after one quarter, but the Glenwood JV pulled away in the second half to a 57-43 victory over Creston. Christian Groumoutis scored 14 ponts for the Panthers and Connor Weist led the Rams with 15. “It was a good first game to see our guys in a competitive situation,” Creston coach Michael West said. “We need to box out a little better, and they were getting some fast break points on us.” Creston plays at Shenandoah on Tuesday.

Creston (43) — Christian Groumoutis 14, Sam Hartsock 9, Cooper McDermott 9, Jake Miller 6, Brandon Jones 4, Nick Walsh 3, McClain Haines 2, Chris Foster 2. 3-point goals — Hartsock 1, McDermott 1.

Free throws — 10-19.

FRESHMEN Glenwood got out to a 22-8 lead on the way to defeating Creston freshmen Friday, 46-24. “They got in the (free throw) penalty too quick,” said Creston coach Anthony Donahoo. “In the fourth quarter we started playing better and moving the ball downcourt, running our lanes.” Creston freshmen are idle until playing at Atlantic on Friday.

Creston (24) — Cody Crawford 9, Seth Thompson 6, Gavin Woods 3, Deaven Reese 2, Brenden McDowell 2, Ben Irr 2. 3-point goals — Crawford 1. Halftime score — Glenwood 22, Creston 8. Glenwood (46) — Mavrick Decker 8, Dalian Melgoza 8, Jake Clark 6.

DIAGONAL: Continued from page 5A

Omar’s shot was on a perfect line for the hoop, but sailed just long, as Murray corralled the rebound. Diagonal wasn’t able to foul in the final :30 and Murray held on for a wild 62-60 win. “I didn’t know what to tell them, playing four on five and they’re trying to waste time,” Warren said. “What do you do? But, they found a way to do it (climb back into the game) and it was awesome. To have a chance to win a game like that with

three people on the court ... if one bounce goes our way at the end, we’ve got it.” Wookey said he’s never been a part of a game quite like this, but said it was unfortunate the game ended the way it did. “The worst thing about it is with Taylor on the floor, they have a chance to win it no matter what, because he can beat one guy, two guys off the dribble,” Wookey said. “I know it wasn’t much fun for their kids to have to step off to the side and foul

out, but I was glad our guys stepped up and got it done.” Diagonal falls to 1-2 for the season and 0-1 in Bluegrass Conference play with the loss, while Murray improves to 1-1 and 1-0. The Maroons host OrientMacksburg on Tuesday in a boys and girls doubleheader, while Murray hosts Mormon Trail in a boys and girls doubleheader.

DIAGONAL (60) — Jacob Taylor 9 7-12 30, Blake Butler 3 4-4 10, Levi Jarred 3 0-0 8, Gerad Naill 2 0-0 6, Kenneth Weaselhead 0 5-9 5, Colter Pickering 0 1-2. Totals — 17 17-27 60. 3-point goals — 9 (Taylor 5,
