balloon days in creston kicks off friday

City council highlights

Creston Fire Chief Todd Jackson reported Tuesday evening his department has not yet sold the 1988 Ford fire truck that went out of service last month. Jackson said the truck was advertised locally, but no bids were received. The scrap value of the fire truck is $3,000, but Jackson said, “It’s way more valuable than that.” Jackson suggested advertising the fire Jackson truck at a fixed price of $15,000. The council voted unanimously to allow Jackson $500 in advertising to get the best value for the old fire truck. In other city council news, this year’s trick-or-treat night will be Oct. 31.

GEARING UP FOR LIFT OFF Creston prepares for the 36th annual Southwest Iowa Hot Air Balloon Days ■


CNA staff reporter

Balloonists and spectators hope to continue 2012’s streak of four perfect flight conditions at the 36th annual Southwest Iowa Hot Air Balloon Days in Creston this weekend. The main events of the upcoming weekend — a fun flight Friday night, two flights on Saturday and Sunday morning — are totally dependent on the area weather conditions. The National Weather Service forecast is predicting clear, sunny skies for the Creston area all weekend with temperatures in the low 70s. “Weather controls whether or not they are able to go up,” said Creston Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ellen Gerharz. Wind speed may be the biggest fac-

Fewest tornadoes record

Iowa is closing in on a record-low 15 tornadoes for 2013. The previous record was set in 2012 at 16. A cold, wet spring was not conducive for tornado activity, and recent drought conditions have limited thunderstorm activity capable of producing a tornado. State Climatologist Harry Hillaker said 19 of the past 34 years have had tornadoes after Sept. 1. The average for the state is 47 tornadoes each year. Hillaker “The main ingredient we need is warm and humid air, but it gets to be less and less frequent this late in the year,” Hillaker said. The first tornado of the season hit May 19 and the most recent one was June 26. The 38-day span would be the shortest season on record. Hillaker said Iowa has had tornadoes every month of the year, but it would be unusual to get a tornado this late. “It is hard to see that coming,” Hillaker said. “It depends so much on timing, you have to get everything just right.”

tor. Roger Lanning, Balloon Days event coordinator, said the forecast is encouraging for another successful year. He said the windspeed typically needs to be below 10 mph Lanning at ground level for the balloons to take off. Before each flight, the pilots meet to determine if conditions are safe to fly. Gerharz said 44 balloonists are scheduled to participate this year. About 40 of the pilots are planning on attending the fun flight on Friday evening to help kick off the event. “I look forward to seeing the people on the street on Friday night,” Gerharz said. “It really is a community event, that’s how it has lasted so many years.”

Other events The city of Creston has a list of activities to compliment the ballooning no matter what Mother Nature decides for the weekend. Please see BALLOONS, Page 2

Supervisor highlights

Union County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted yes on a contract with Cost Advisory Services (CAS) for Union County’s cost allocation plan. Each year, Union County indirectly funds state entities like the Department of Human Resources. CAS helps the county earn a partial refund from the state for those expenses. CAS representative Jeff Lorenz offered a one-year contract of $3,600 for its services. Union County was the 91st county to join CAS. Clarke County is also considering making the switch to CAS. Supervisors also unanimously voted to join Union County Public Health in a coalition to determine how to delegate grant money. Union County Supervisors join Greater Regional Medical Center, Union County Health, Union County Emergency Management, Union County Sheriff, city of Creston, city of Afton, Creston Fire, Creston Police, and city of Cromwell on the coalition. In the past, grant money has been spent on new equipment like a radio upgrade at Greater Regional Medical Center and to fund training exercises to prepare for emergencies that occur under the realm of public health.


ACTIVITIES: Spectators have a full list of activities at the Creston Municipal Airport. The pet show at 2 p.m. is open to anyone through the age of 12, but animals must be on a leash or in a cage. The kid’s pedal pull is after at 2:30 p.m. Another balloon race* and a night glow* — balloonist light up their balloons to contrast the night sky — are slated for 4:30 p.m. and dusk, respectively.

Saturday’s flea market and craft tables that usually run down both sides of Maple Street have been moved to the west parking lot at the restored depot. The parade is scheduled to start 10:30 a.m. through uptown Creston. Area high school marching bands will be competing for trophies and some of the balloon pilots will have their gondolas in the parade. At the airport, children can participate in the pet show and pedal pull. A night glow is scheduled after sunset. Night glow is a chance for balloonists to show of their colorful balloons and contrast the night sky, putting on a visual show for spectators. “We don’t often get the night glow in,” Lanning said. “It is a great event for families.” Similar to past years, viewing locations for spectators and food vendors will be toward the north side of the airport. “The balloonists realize it’s a community event,” Gerharz said. “In the past, they have allowed locals to crew for them and visited

with members of the community.” For a full schedule of events, see the Creston News Advertiser’s special section Thursday. History Since 2000, the balloons have been grounded five times. In 2001, the Federal

Aviation Administration restricted flight because of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Cold temperatures, win and rain kept the balloons from taking off in 2004, 2006, 2010 and 2011. 2012 was the first time since 2009 that all four scheduled flights were able

to take off. Grant Pfeifer won the event in 2012. Brad Craig and Scott Armstrong finished second and third respectively. Jim Thompson is the only repeat victor since 1987. He has won the event three times: 1987, 1992 and 1999.

Running shorts: efficient and attention-grabbing for safety If you have seen a male scantily clad in high-split running shorts racing around the streets of Creston, down the trails and along the shoulder of surrounding county roads, chances are pretty high it was me. While the attire may seem excessive — in a minimal sense — to those of you who are new or have no knowledge of the sport, take a quick glance at any serious runner at the local, college or professional level. Not a single American running track and field at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England, in any of the running events wore shorts hanging below their knees during competition. Some middle- and long-distance

Miles of trials Jake Waddingham staff writer

runners are even switching to compression shorts. Don’t worry Crestonians, I don’t own any compression material, yet. Wearing running shorts isn’t a fashion statement; it is simply the most effective combination of light, comfortable workout clothing to help runners perform at a high level. A 16-mile long run is already a physically- and mentally-daunting challenge, but carrying another 1

or 2 pounds of baggy shorts and a cotton T-shirt soaked with sweat is inefficient. Now, I don’t mind the honks, laughter and quizzical looks that come while I am running. I typically just use it as motivation to run a little faster and continue to make myself a little better. And if you are going to jeer an attempted insult, be a little more creative than “Run Forrest, run.” It’s my favorite movie, so it has no effect on my psyche. I’m hoping that my attire has an additional benefit of keeping bikers, runners and walkers a little safer while sharing the roads. According to RoadID, an average of 122,000 runners, walkers and cyclists are injured by vehicles

every year in the United States. RoadID is a company that specializes in creating identification for active people to wear in case of an accident. The RoadID is great for runners, hikers, bikers and children who do not carry identification on them during workouts or adventures. I am not putting the blame solely on drivers, but there is a simple truth to all pedestrian/vehicle accidents — the person inside the vehicle has a significantly higher chance of leaving the accident physically unharmed. Exercise enthusiasts need to take the lead in practicing proper roadsharing techniques on all roads. Bicyclists should ride with traffic and runners/walkers should move

against traffic flow. When fatigue, enthusiasm or lack of judgment occurs, drivers should be on the lookout for individuals working out and adjust their speed or travel to avoid an incident. Texting and driving is especially hazardous for anyone sharing the roadway with traffic. According to the Iowa DOT, the average text message takes five seconds to send. At 55 mph, the driver would have his or her eyes off the road for the length of a football field. It will take a team effort to keep everyone safe and encourage Creston to be fit. I hope to see some new faces on the roads and trails soon. Happy training.

Miss New York Nina Davulurli was crowned Miss America HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? Tim Tebow was offered a million dollars by Russia to play for Moscow’s Black Storm football team. What nerve. Vladimir Putin already headed off the U.S. attack on Syria’s chemical weapons, now he’s trying to steal our only weapon against sex, drugs and alcohol. Miss New York Nina Davulurli was crowned Miss America Sunday becoming the first Indo American to ever win. She had to overcome cultural obstacles. In India’s version of the TV show How I Met Your Mother, there’s just one episode and it’s about the wedding. California struck a deal with Nevada to take some prisoners to comply with a Supreme Court order Friday. The court ordered fifty thousand prisoners released due to prison overcrowding. The good news is that the sale of Oakland Raiders season tickets is soaring. The Discovery Channel reports that Brazilian explorers just discovered a lost tribe on the Amazon River living deep in Brazil’s jungle They have never had any outside contacts. This tribe is so primitive that it lives in huts and hangs out at Blockbuster Video. New Hampshire cops arrested a man in Manchester Friday who walked up to a bank teller and robbed the bank while wearing a President Obama mask. The guy made one error. He sent a man wearing a John Kerry mask into the bank ahead of time to warn them. Michelle Obama’s school lunch program was dropped by some schools because kids weren’t eating it. They should try her husband’s diet, he stays thin. You have a big breakfast and a full dinner but nothing in between because Vladimir Putin eats your

lunch. President Obama acknowledged in an interview on Sunday he had difficulty putting together an international coalition who’d join us in an attack on Syria. The U.S. never acts alone on any major foreign policy decision. The people of Mexico are with us, literally. John Kerry warned Syria’s Bashar al Assad that force is still a U.S. option. It’s easy to gin up a case for war. Last week, advisors had to physically restrain President Obama from trying to convince Amercans that Bashar al Assad is trying to cut your Social security President Obama’s nomination to head the Federal Reserve Bank, Lawrence Summers, withdrew. Democrats vowed to block him. Five years ago during the financial panic. Larry Summers was the only banker optimstic enough to iron five shirts on a Sunday night. The White House canceled an event which honors Latin music and Hispanic Heritage Monday. It’s part of a September long vigil. However, in keeping with an old Mexican tradition, President Obama will light a candle on the day of the Powerball Lottery drawing. The N.Y. Post found the Obama Care questionaire will ask you how many sex partners you have plus your past drug use. This is healthy? Once you tell the U.S. all your sex and drug secrets, it’s a slippery slope to your own reality TV show, and death by overexposure.

School is in full swing The school year is in full swing, homecoming is fast approaching, and our students are settling into their learning routines. As always, many things are happening at school and I hope to keep folks informed through this column. Of course our primary focus is student learning. Our mantra remains Creston CARES — Cultivating Achievement and Responsibility while Educating all Students. As that statement implies, student achievement is extremely important. We must all realize that caring for children includes wanting the best for them and for their futures. In the Creston Schools, the motivation for improved learning and student achievement stems from a genuine concern for our local kids. Sometimes people interpret a push for improved student achievement as somewhat cold or uncaring in general and that is not the case here. We realize that every test score has a face, a mind and personality attached to it. With that in mind, our annual scores from No Child Left Behind were recently reported. While these scores and associated repercussions are enough material for several articles, a couple trends are evident. First, our student attendance and graduation rates have improved and are above average. Second, our students’ scores in math and reading have improved in third grade through fifth grade and

From the desk of Steve McDermott Creston Superintendent

at the 11th grade level. Our sixth-grade through eighthgrade scores have not improved satisfactorily, but that is not a direct reflection on only the instruction and learning at the middle school. Performance levels on the standardized tests represent an accumulation of everything a student has learned in school over the years to that point. Of course several factors impact test scores, including actual knowledge, test-taking abilities, effort, attitude and all the many circumstances in each individual child’s life the day of the test. We have seen a terrific boost in scores by our 11th-graders, and we believe their improved efforts tied to student-developed incentives have made the difference. Our High Lakes Campus — Creston High School has evolved into a highly successful alternative learning environment. Twenty-four students currently attend including 13 who are on track to graduate next spring and several who have returned to school after previously dropping out. We are so proud of this set of students and of their efforts. Tracey Carlson-Lauer, lead instructor, along with Brenda Dillenburg, Rachel

Foth, and Larry McNutt serve our students in this program. As Tracey mentioned at Monday night’s board meeting, much of the success of the students in this program can be credited to the collaborative relationships that exist among students, parents and staff. The sharing agreement between Creston and Prescott Schools continues as the districts share a teacher, business manager and the superintendent. Our preschool programs work together, also. So far, the arrangement is functioning well, even though the needs of the two districts are very different at times. The two boards hope to build on the success attained to this point. Regarding facilities, hand rails are on their way for the CHS gym. We hope to have these installed before the winter season. Also, construction on the new transportation building, bus barn, should begin next month. The district will be advertising for bids soon. Progress on the two safe rooms has moved along briskly. The safe room at the elementary/ middle school will be a gym space, and the high school safe room will be classrooms. Finally, planning continues for dug-outs at the high school baseball field. These will be completed before they are needed next spring. Look for future updates in the months to come. Creston Cares!

ENTERTAINMENT From cake mix come brownies Dear Heloise: A recipe for CHOCOLATE BROWNIES appeared in your column years ago. Unfortunately, I misplaced it. Could you please reprint it? — Brenda H., via email Absolutely! Here is the recipe for Heloise’s brownies from a cake mix. These are more cakelike brownies, but they will do in a pinch and with things you usually have on hand. Grab the following ingredients: 1 egg 3/4 cup water plus more as needed 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional) 1 (18.25 ounces) box devil’sfood cake mix Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 13-by-9-inch pan. In a large bowl, mix together the egg, water and nuts (if using). Add the cake mix and STIR WELL. The batter will be thick; however, if it is too thick, add only a teaspoonful of water at a time to help thin it. Just be sure NOT to overmix. Pour into the greased pan and smooth the top. Bake for about 20-25 minutes for chewy brownies. If you like them more of a cake consistency, then bake them for a few minutes longer. You

Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Think twice before you make promises to partners and close friends today, because you’re tempted to go overboard or promise more than you can deliver. Today’s Full Moon can actually aggravate this. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You are confident about issues at work today, which is why you want others to agree with you. Nevertheless, today’s Full Moon might create opposition against you. Tread carefully. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Parents should be vigilant about children today, because this is a Full Moon day and people’s judgment might be off. Nevertheless, it’s a playful, fun-loving day. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t bite off more than you can chew in family discussions today. Just stay within your comfort level. And don’t exaggerate things. (Easy does it.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If you’re at odds with others about financial matters today (which is likely because of today’s Full Moon), be careful what you say. You’re tempted to go overboard or promise too much. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful about financial matters today. If shopping, you might be extravagant. Or you might overestimate a financial or business decision. Be aware of this. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today’s Full Moon might create underlying stress for something. Nevertheless, you are optimistic and full of hope! (Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Disagreements with others might arise because of today’s Full Moon. However, your own personal optimism about something probably will carry the day. Look for a win/ win solution. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Difficulties with parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and people in authority are likely today because of the Full Moon. On top of this, you might be expecting too much of others. Oops. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a mildly accidentprone day because of the Full Moon’s energy. Therefore, pay

Hints from Heloise need to watch them and test for how “done” you like them.

Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Be sure to let the brownies cool before cutting, and use a plastic knife to cut them with little or no sticking! — Heloise NO EGGSHELLS Dear Heloise: Some time ago, I think you wrote NOT to put eggshells down the garbage disposal. Please tell me why, and don’t say, “Because I said so!” — John in Colorado Springs, Colo. Well, John, some experts suggest that a lot of eggshells can damage a disposal, but I personally don’t see how. The real point is that in large amounts, they also can clog the drains further down in the pipes! This is why you must run A LOT of water before,

during and after a food item is put in the disposal. Instead of putting these shells down the sink, try using them as compost. — Heloise OATMEAL OPTIONS Dear Heloise: When making cookies that call for oatmeal, what kind is the best to bake cookies with — the oneminute oatmeal, or the oldfashioned kind? I read your column every day and thank you for all the hints and advice. — Sharon C. in Houston You can use the one-minute oatmeal or regular when baking. Both have the same flavor; the only difference is in the appearance of the cookies. The quicker-cooking oatmeal has a finer texture, so the oatmeal will be blended into the cookie. When using regular BEETLE BAILEY® by Greg & Mort Walker oatmeal, you will be able to see the oats in the cookie. — Heloise PREPARING CALAMARI Dear Heloise: When making calamari, an easy solution for removing the tough inner membrane of a squid involves the use of tweezers. Easy to grab onto the membrane and then remove it. — Araceli in San Antonio (c)2013 by King Features Syndicate Inc. BLONDIE® by Dean Young

Horoscope attention to everything you say and do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Do be careful with financial decisions, especially related to debt, taxes, inheritances and shared property. Your judgment might be off. Don’t give away the farm. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because of difficulties with someone today, you might be tempted to acquiesce, give in or give away your fair share of something. Don’t do this to yourself.

YOU BORN TODAY You are organized. You also have an appreciation for beauty, which is why many of you have excellent taste. In fact, the appearance of things fascinates you and gives you pleasure — the appearance of your surroundings, your home, your image and whatever you handle. This year, you might set aside time to study or learn something valuable. (Your rewards soon will follow.) (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

reen beans are no longer a plain side dish for dinner. Here are some fun, kid-friendly recipes to try at home to help encourage your kids to eat a healthy serving of green beans. “Florida green beans are great with a dip. Try them with hummus, ranch or any of your favorite dressings,” suggested Justin Timineri, Executive Chef and Culinary Ambassador, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. You can find more delicious recipes for Florida green beans at

Chef Justin Timineri

The Power of Green Green beans are a flavorful way to eat healthy all year around. ■ They are a good source of dietary fiber. ■ Green beans contain vitamin C and folic acid. ■ They are also an important source of potassium and many micronutrients. ■ One cup of cooked, fresh green beans has only 30 calories and no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

When choosing beans, look for plump, crisp beans that are reasonably well shaped. The beans should have even color with fresh blossom ends and snap readily when broken. Many people prefer smaller beans, which are usually more tender.

Green Bean Poufs Yield: 4 servings 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed 1 can prepared crescent roll dough Fill large sized stock pot 3/4 of the way full and lightly salt water. Bring lightly salted water to rolling boil over mediumhigh heat. Fill medium-sized mixing bowl halfway with ice and water. Add trimmed and cut green beans to boiling water and let cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Using hand strainer, remove green beans from boiling water and place them into ice water to stop cooking. The green beans should be crisp-tender and vibrant green. After green beans have cooled down, remove from ice water and set aside. Dry blanched green beans with paper towel. Open tube of prepared crescent roll dough. Cut each dough roll into strips. Wrap bunches of 3 green beans in spiral manner and place on cookie sheet. Continue process until all dough and green beans are used. Bake wrapped green beans until the dough is cooked and golden brown. Let cool and serve. Kids Can: Wrap dough around the green beans.

Green Bean Stir-Fry Yield: 4 servings 1 tablespoon olive oil 3 cups fresh green beans, ends trimmed 2 cups sweet bell peppers, sliced 2 cups zucchini, sliced thin 1 cup carrot, sliced thin 2 tablespoons honey 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon black and white sesame seeds Preheat large sauté pan or wok over medium high heat. Add olive oil to preheated pan. Carefully add all vegetables to preheated pan. Cook vegetables for 4 to 7 minutes or until desired doneness. Add honey and soy sauce to pan and stir to combine. Serve stir-fry with rice and garnish with sesame seeds. Chef’s Tip: Add favorite vegetables in place of the ones listed in recipe. Kids Can: Snap green beans and help measure honey and soy.

Green Bean and Potato Salad with Yogurt Dressing Yield: 8 to 10 servings 1/2 pound fresh green beans, washed, ends trimmed and cut into thirds 2 pounds potatoes, washed, peeled and diced large 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt 2 lemons, juiced 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped fine 1/4 cup olive oil Sea salt to taste Fresh ground pepper to taste Fill large sized stock pot 3/4 of the way full and lightly salt water. Bring lightly salted water to rolling boil over mediumhigh heat. Fill medium-sized mixing bowl halfway with ice and water. Add trimmed and cut green beans to boiling water and let cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Using hand strainer, remove green beans from boiling water and place them into ice water to stop cooking. The green beans should be crisp-tender and vibrant green. After green beans have cooled down, remove from ice water and set aside. Carefully add cut potatoes to same boiling water greens beans were cooked in. Cook potatoes in boiling water for around 15 minutes depending on size. The potatoes should be slightly firm, yet tender to the bite. Using colander placed in the sink, drain potatoes and run cold water over them to cool off and stop cooking. In large mixing bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, parsley and olive oil. Stir yogurt mixture to combine. Taste potato salad and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Keep potato salad cold in refrigerator and stir before serving. Kids Can: Help combine ingredients for dressing.

The Numbers Game


Losses by the Astros for the third straight season, the first such streak since the 2004-2006 Royals.

National Digest

Judge steps down LAS VEGAS — Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat Canelo Alvarez in the megafight on Saturday -on every scorecard except one. CJ Ross, the boxing judge who scored the Mayweather-Alvarez fight as a draw, confirmed that she is stepping down indefinitely, according to Las Vegas TV station 8 News NOW. Ross has been involved in two controversial decisions in the last 15 months. She also judged the Timothy Bradley-Manny Pacquiao fight last year, and was one of two judges to score the bout in Bradley’s favor, despite overwhelming opinion that Pacquiao had earned the win. Ross sent an email to the Nevada Athletic Commission that read: “I will be taking some time off from boxing but will keep in touch,” according to a tweet from The Las Vegas Journal. Ross has been a judge since 1989.

PGA changes? ATLANTA -- Commissioner Tim Finchem said Tuesday that spectators in the gallery or television viewers alerting officials to possible rules issues is “difficult and awkward’’ and that the PGA Tour is studying the matter. Finchem, speaking at East Lake Golf Club, site of the season-ending Tour Championship, said specifically that the tour would look into whether it is fair for a player to be disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard when spectator or video information comes to light after the fact. Presently, if information becomes known prior to the conclusion of a tournament but after a player signed his scorecard -- thereby not adding penalty strokes -- he is disqualified. The issue is prominent again after the rules issue faced by Tiger Woods on Friday at the BMW Championship, where he was assessed a twostroke penalty only after enhanced slow-motion video footage showed that his ball moved while he attempted to remove debris. That calls for a twostroke penalty if the ball is not replaced, but Woods argued the ball only “oscillated’’ which would have meant no penalty. He would have been penalized one stroke had he replaced the ball. “It feels awkward when it happens,’’ said Finchem about the Woods incident, which only came to light because a PGA Tour camera crew was filming the golfer. “On the other hand, I hate to say it’s part of the tradition of the game because actually you can’t really argue that because it’s changed with the degree of television we have. I think we need to do some more thinking about it. I think people in the game need to think about it.’’ Woods has been involved in three high-profile rules situations this year, two of which came to light due to video. The one that occurred at the Masters would have seen him disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard.


Saintes debut in Creston with sweep By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

Class 2A fourth-ranked Council Bluffs St. Albert put on a clinic in its first trip to Creston for a Hawkeye 10 Conference contest in any sport here Tuesday, as the Saintes swept the Panthers in three games. St. Albert rolled to a 25-6 win in game one, picked up a 25-15 win in game two and survived a tough test in game three, 26-24. “We kind of showed in game three what we’re capable of doing,” Creston head coach Polly Luther said. “That didn’t really do us any good in games one and two.” The Panthers jumped out to a 13-9 lead in game three when Angie Sorensen tipped the ball over the net, forcing St. Albert head coach Angie Lantz to call a timeout. The Saintes quickly regained the lead at 14-13 and then 18-16, but Creston continued to fight back, trying to force a fourth game. “I know that we’re capable of battling like that in sets one and two,” Luther said. “The girls just have

to know that and we have to come out and play hard from the start.” Later in the game, Sydney Dunphy terminated a point to tie the match at 23-23, but Grace Wettengel responded with a kill of her own to give the Saintes match point. Sorensen tied the match at 24-24 with one of her team-high eight kills, but St. Albert won the next two points to win the match on a Kylie Ferguson kill from the middle. “We kind of relaxed a little too much for my liking, and they know that,” Lantz said about the third game. “We tried to play everybody tonight and get them experience for our next matches coming up. That’s not always the best decision, but it’s a learning experience.” Ferguson gave the Panthers fits hitting from the middle of the floor, while Emily Rindone and Allison Wettengel also proved to be strong weapons. After the Panthers looked overwhelmed at times during the first two games, Creston played like Luther knows it can in game three.

Middle school football 7th grade CHARITON — The Creston/O-M seventh grade football team got off to a good start for the 2013 season with a 43-6 victory Thursday over Chariton. The Panthers also won the B game, 14-6. “Our ground game and play action passes were devastating,” said Panther coach Dick Clark. “The defense could have pitched a shutout, but our boys showed great sportsmanship.” Dale Boyer scored on a 40-yard run and two 20-yard passes from Hunter Simpson and a two-point run. Kylan Smallwood scored on runs of 45, 50 and 58 yards, and a twopoint run. Bryce Fitzgerald caught a two-point conversion pass from Simpson, and Boyer added a PAT kick. Opening holes up front were Dean Mongar, Kendall Crawford, Trevor Kinyon, James McDonald, Jacob Davis and Zac Hague. “We have a lot more team speed than past years and holding down the edges on ‘D’ are Matt Borha, Tristan Travis, Christen Gist and Walker Patterson,” Clark said. The B squad had an exciting come-from-behind victory. The Perry twins had solid performances, as Chris had a crafty 8-yard TD run and Tony filled in at center for Trenton Stull, who suffered a broken arm in his first game.

Beau Barncastle had a 10-yard touchdown run and Austin Schnormeier added the two-point run. Isaac Davis had four tackles and Jeff Dillenburg had three.

8th grade The Creston/O-M eighth graders topped Chariton in their opener, 35-14. Kolby Tomas had five carries for 62 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Panthers. Kolten Phelps added a rushing TD while running for 47 yards on six carries. Jaden Driskell was 1-of-2 passing for a 45-yard touchdown pass to Cole Higgins. Defensively, Dalten Bierle was in on seven tackles and returned a fumble recovery 40 yards for a touchdown. Evan Jacobson had two tackles, a fumble recovery and returned an interception for a TD. Treyg Webb had a 40-yard kick return. Other leading tacklers (solo-assists) were Trevor Downing 3-7, Dustin Merritt 2-6, Blake Sevier 2-4 and Higgins 1-5. “This was a great start to our season,” said Creston/OM coach Kristopher “Kritter” Hayes. “Our defense was on the field most of the game, which made it tough to get into an offensive rhythm. But we were opportunistic defensively due to numerous Chariton mistakes. We will continue getting better and look forward to Red Oak this week.”

South Central Iowa Regional E911 Minutes August 28, 2013 The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Paul Welch, Chair. Other members present were Denny Denton, Phyllis Mullen, Karen Benson, Jo Duckworth, Steve Shelley, Dani Gray, Nate Bucher, Angela Henry, Ronda Rus-sell, and Stephen Patterson. Also present were Lyn Hansen (Hansen s M & M Services), Steve Holmes (Racom), and Joni Walston (SCI Administrator). The minutes of the July meeting were reviewed. Motion by Mullen to approve the July minutes as presented. Second by Shelley. All ayes. The Board reviewed the activities and financial reports. Motion by Henry to approve the activities and financial reports as presented. Second by Russell. All ayes. The bills were then reviewed. The Chair asked for review of the Sleuth and Racom bills. Holmes reviewed the CLIPS presentation of last month. The single license originally suggested, but not feasible, can be converted to individual licenses for any PSAP wanting the program. Training would be at no cost to SCI. The bill reflects 90% of the CLIPS project with 10% left upon satisfactory performance. Welch indicated the bill is for seven counties and several don't want CLIPS. In fact, only Adams and Madison are interested. At the last meeting Comsis indicated it would provide cost/maintenance per site information to Walston within a few days. That has not been provided and Welch indicated SCI would not pay this bill with only two interested and not knowing the maintenance costs. Motion by Duckworth to not pay the Racom bill presented. Second by Benton. All ayes. The Sleuth bill is the annual maintenance cost for the CAD software for the five counties interested in that program. Adair and Union are not interested at this time. Walston recommended paying this bill. Motion by Duckworth to pay the

The Sleuth bill is the annual maintenance cost for the CAD software for the five counties interested in that program. Adair and Union are not interested at this time. Walston recommended paying this bill. Motion by Duckworth to pay the Sleuth bill as presented. Second by Russell. All ayes. Motion by Duckworth to pay all the remaining bills as presented. Second by Mullen. All ayes. Hansen presented her written report. There are issues with the Arc GIS10.1 and certain locaters not working. GeoCom is working on this and Hansen is also working with Ezri to correct problems. Updates have been placed on GeoLink 2 server but can t be transferred to server one until the problems are fixed. There has been no further reports of any grey-out areas on the mapping so that appears solved. Benson reported on problems with dispatch getting onto mapping. It required Racom to reset the server and has happened several times. This will be checked. Walston reported she is training the new assistant, Danielle Henry, from the high school program. She is learning very quickly. The assistant last year was paid $8.00/hour with evaluation and possibly to $10.00 after three months. Motion by Mullen to pay Henry $8.00/hour with a three-month evaluation with a possible increase to $10.00/hour. Second by Shelley. All ayes. Walston will have her come to meet the Board next meeting. Welch reported that at the last meeting Sorum indicated that after SCI has paid the project costs that any new issues will go to individual vendors. Welch stressed that the RFP requires that Racom remain as the one-point contact for problems. Holmes assured the Board that he will relay that to staff. Welch then asked Holmes to address the Board. He indicated that the State is working with the four major providers of wireless and will be providing text 911 by May, 2014. His concern is many fold in that he believes there is too much code to write, there is no planned guidelines and training, etc. He indicated that there is a transfer problem in Clarke Co. Century Link has been contacted to make appropriate changes after it was learned that calls were improperly routed. This should be done on the 29th. Racom will check with Clarke Co. to be sure it is completed. Holmes indicated that the State dispatch will no longer accept wire line transfers. The State Patrol indicates it is due to cost issues. The wireless calls still all go to Johnston and will be transferred. Holmes recommended Racom be okayed to remove the transfer option to State Patrol. The Board concurred with this suggestion. There will be a new release of MaxDispatch soon. He is unsure of all the items to be addressed but they will all be designed to support NextGen 911. There are always going to be glitches as this process moves along but Racom intends to make it as painless as possible. He feels putting text and TDD together will be one challenge. In response to a question Walston indicated that circuit charges for Windstream are $1300/month and MediaCom are $2810/month. Holmes has been approached by a provider that might save circuit costs for SCI. He will research this. He views as open issues for further work: a) Adair Co. monitor issues, b) subsystem failure warning in Clarke and Adams Counties, and c) phone compatibility issues to eliminate the number of phones in use. Bucher asked how long it takes for a 911 unanswered call to roll to another PSAP? Holmes indicated it only rolls if both 911 lines and the designated administration line are all busy. Otherwise, it doesn't. Patterson asked how the new $.35 wireless surcharge will affect SCI revenue. Duckworth said that wireless companies get some costs reimbursed first. Then the $.35 will be distributed to PSAPs based on the report that will have to be completed showing costs, service areas, call volume, etc. That form has not been developed yet and will be a joint effort by Walston and the data each PSAP provides annually.
