trial slated jan. 2014
hall of fame inductions
Kenyon comes back to his roots Scadden
pleads not guilty to sexual abuse charge
By LARRY PETERSON
CNA staff writer firstname.lastname@example.org
EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first in a three-part series on 2013 inductees into the Creston Community Schools Hall of Fame at 12:15 p.m. Friday in the CHS auditorium. Today’s feature on Tim Kenyon will be followed by Curt Olson Wednesday and Thelda Bender Williams Thursday.
Evin Lawrence Scadden — who allegedly sexually abused a female in July — has entered a plea of not guilty for the third-degree sexual abuse charge against him. According to a Creston Police report, evidence collected does indicate the 20-year-old Scadden of Creston did engage in a sex act with the female July 16, which was by force or against her will. A pretrial conference in Scadden Scadden’s case is scheduled 10 a.m. Nov. 22 at the Union County Courthouse. A trial is slated for 9:30 a.m. Jan. 13. Meanwhile, 25-year-old Stoney Avery Stuart of Creston — who allegedly sexually abused a 17-year-old female in July on the same day Scadden allegedly did — has also entered a plea of not guilty. Stuart’s trial is slated for 9:30 a.m. Jan. 27.
im Kenyon is the third member of his immediate family to serve as Union County Attorney, having worked in the office as a criminal prosecutor for 30 years. He follows his father, the late Arnold O. Kenyon II, county attorney from 1953 to 1956; and older brother Arnold O. “Skip” Kenyon III, county attorney from 1978 to 1983. In fact Skip, who now shares duties as Creston city attorney with Todd Nielsen, worked together with Tim in the office for a time in the early 1980s. When Skip became city attorney, Tim was elected county attorney in 1986. It became a full-time position by the Union County CURT Board of Supervisors in 1990. OLSON, With the onan inducted set of additional drug cases and into the other CHS Hall of various crimes, the ofFame, will be fice under Kenyon’s direction featured in prosecuted Wednesday’s has more cases (6,100) than in CNA. 80 years of records before he joined the office (4,000). That amount of public service is notable in itself, but when Kenyon is inducted in the Creston Hall of Fame Friday in the Distinguished Alumni category, it will be as much for his countless volunteer hours to the school district in his hometown.
In a nutshell, these are the three areas in which Kenyon has made significant contributions over a
span of many years: • He received the Governor’s Volunteer Award from Gov. Terry E. Branstad in 1998 for his work with local middle school students in mock trial competition. • He is past president of Creston Activities Booster Club, having been especially active on the CHS band parents committee. He was involved in obtaining the marching band’s first travel trailer, and served as chaperone for the band’s first two performances in Florida at Disney World in the early 2000s. • Many Creston High School students have taken classes he has taught as an adjunct instructor at Southwestern Community College. With a deep background in psychology as an undergraduate student at the University of Iowa, Kenyon has taught psychology along with business law and, more recently, criminal justice classes. He has also appeared frequently as a guest speaker in high school and middle school social studies classes. Nobody appreciates Kenyon’s support more than Mike Peters, CHS director of bands. “Tim has always been an active member of our band department,” Peters said. “First as a student, then as one of the strongest band parents I have ever had. We used to joke that he was still gaining band letter Please see KENYON, Page 2

Man seriously injured after accident at Ferrara Candy Co. A male employee at Ferrara Candy Company in Creston was seriously injured Monday morning when he got tangled in material handling equipment. Creston Fire Department extricated the victim. He was then immediately flown by air ambulance to a Des Moines hospital. Neither his name nor condition report are being released at this time. “It was a time-critical injury that needed immediate care at a level 1 trauma center,” said Creston Assstant Fire Chief Mick Landers. “It was a challenging rescue for us because he was so tangled in the machine. We couldn’t lift the machine off him. We couldn’t cut him out. We had to carefully untangle him without causing further injuries to the patient.” Creston News Advertiser will update this story when details become available.

Alice Mae Bridgeman Grout, daughter of Etha Pauline (Ogburn) and Glenn Shearburn, was born Aug. 2, 1931, in Corning. Alice grew up on the family farm south of Corning. Alice attended country school and continued on to Corning High School. Alice worked as a waitress throughout her high school years and graduated in 1948. After graduation, Alice went to work at the battery factory in Red Oak. On Aug. 9, 1949, Alice married John Bridgeman, and the couple made their home in Corning. Alice and John purchased
her father’s farm in 1960. Alice and John also opened Bridgeman Plumbing and Heating Company. Later, Alice went to work for Corning Nursing and Rehab, after it was built, and worked there many years. John died in 1989. On Sept. 21, 1991, Alice married Harry Grout. Alice and Harry made their home in Loveland, Colo., before moving back to Corning. Alice and Harry were treasurers of the senior citizens center and also helped in starting Senior Day at Adams County Fair. Alice was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church, Catholic Daughters of America, Altar Society, Friendship Meals and Meals on Wheels and helped with bingo at the nursing home. Harry died in 2010.

points as an alum, because he continued to play with the pep band all the years that his children were members of the CHS band program.” Peters also mentioned Kenyon and other “Band Dads” for establishing the tradition of being on the band trailer crew. “Tim has always been an amazing friend of not only the CHS band program, but to the entire Creston instrumental music family,” Peters said. For Kenyon, a professed “Type A workaholic,” it’s been a labor of love. After graduating from Creston High School in 1976, he continued playing trumpet in college with the University of Iowa jazz band, and later with the University of Iowa Medical School jazz band, for which he took some razzing from his law school classmates. Kenyon has also regularly played “Taps” at local Memorial Day programs with either his brother, Skip, or son, Alex. Tim and wife Barbara Kenyon were honored, along with a group of other CHS parents, with “Friends of Fine Arts” awards in 2007 for their volunteer service while their children were students. Daughter Elizabeth has followed her father’s footsteps. She is a recent graduate of the UI Law School and this summer passed the bar exam. “Rick Shelton spearheaded the job of fundraising for our first band trailer,” Kenyon said. “Until then they had rented a U-Haul truck. We got it done. It was a gift to the school, all through donations. As soon as we

got it, everybody realized how wonderful it was.” Kenyon became a “roadie” for the band, helping to load and unload the band’s equipment for weekend contests in the fall. “It would last from 6 in the morning until midnight maybe, especially at (West Des Moines) Valleyfest,” Kenyon said. “But we all had a lot of fun with it.” The original trailer, along with so many memento photographs inside, was blown away in the April 2012 tornado, but insurance allowed for a replacement trailer. Mock trial Kenyon first got involved in helping middle school TAG (Talented and Gifted) students prepare for mocktrial competition in the late 1980s, well before his own children were in school. “Working with Lauris Heinzel to help the kids for mock trial was very near and dear to my heart,” Kenyon said. “I did it for at least 10 years. They felt like they wanted to do something for me, but I can’t accept gifts as an elected official. So, lo and behold, I find out in 1998 that I was going to receive a Governor’s Volunteer Award for my work in mock trial. That still means a lot to me.” His work at Southwestern Community College began as an emergency “fill-
in” for a local attorney who moved to another community, in the middle of a semester of teaching business law at SWCC. He got a call from a longtime friend from his Creston High School days, Dr. Barb Crittenden, SWCC president. “I finished that semester, and I realized that I liked it,” Kenyon said. “I taught some psychology courses, taught for a time for Buena Vista classes, and now I’m teaching business law and a new criminal-law class. I was on the curriculum committee for that.” Meanwhile, he remains busy prosecuting Union County criminal cases, as well as representing all Union County offices and elected officials. He has also served other counties as a special prosecutor, and is past president (2010) of the Iowa County Attorney Association. He said it’s not always easy to prosecute cases in his hometown, a small enough community that it’s not unusual to be familiar with the parties involved. Since the office is full time — he has no duties representing anyone in private practice — he’s able to avoid conflicts of interest in most cases. “I try to deal with the behaviors, I don’t judge people,” Kenyon said. “You deal with it objectively. I
have this overriding sense of fairness and justice, but I also like to help people.” Helping them, he said, in some cases means serving time in jail, or in a rehabilitation facility. It also means helping victims of crime. “I like to help the community deal with these situations,” Kenyon said, “by working with the police, to right the wrong, and sometimes it means getting their stuff back. I’ve been blessed to work with some really good people to accomplish those things.” His only assistant in the office that handles 200 prosecutions a year is Teri Siddens, legal secretary and office manager. The work remains a passion, and he has no regrets about building the career in his hometown. “I was very fortunate in high school. I had the benefit of great people helping me,” he said. “(Principal and baseball coach) Ron Levine, (instructors) Chuck Eilers, Dave Rissler and Dick Bauman, just to name a few. And the neat thing is, I still get to work with great people.” Wednesday: The late Curt Olson, longtime assistant principal and activities director, inducted as Distinguished Faculty.

Understanding the difference between Medicare and the marketplaces By Ron Pollack, executive director, Families USA
If you have Medicare, you may be confused by the buzz surrounding the launch of the new health insurance marketplaces, which are part of the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare). What do these marketplaces mean for you? It’s important to understand that Medicare and the marketplaces are entirely separate. If you have Medicare, you should make the same kinds of decisions about your Medicare coverage that you make every year during open enrollment. You should not sign up for a marketplace plan. But if you know people who don’t have insurance, they should look into this new option. Here are some frequently
asked questions about Medicare and the marketplaces: Q: If I have Medicare, should I look for insurance in my state’s marketplace? A: No. The marketplaces are intended to help people who don’t have health insurance. If you have Medicare, you already have health insurance. You should make the same kinds of decisions about your Medicare coverage that you make ever year. Q: If I have Medicare, do I need to worry about the new requirement to have health insurance? A: No. If you have Medicare, you already meet the requirement that people have insurance starting in 2014. This is true even if you have only Medicare Part A. You do not need to buy any supplemental coverage to comply with anything in the Affordable Care Act.
Q: So what should I do about my Medicare coverage? A: Similar to last year’s schedule, Medicare’s open enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. During Medicare open enrollment, you can decide whether to change plans, join a new plan, or keep the same Medicare coverage you have. If you have a Medicare Advantage or Part D prescription drug plan, you should check to see if your plan will be changing in 2014, and you should assess whether your medication needs have changed. If you have traditional Medicare, you can think about whether you want to join a Medicare Advantage plan. And thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Part D drug coverage will continue to improve in 2014, and Medicare will continue to cover most preventive benefits with no copayments.
You can learn about your Medicare choices by going to the Medicare website at www.medicare.gov or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE. For personalized counseling, ask for a referral to your local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). Q: What if I have Medicare and someone tells me I need to get a new plan because of Obamacare? A: This is not true. Watch out! Dishonest people may try to take advantage of consumers by telling them they need to buy a plan when they don’t need to. In fact, it is against the law for anyone to sell you a marketplace plan if he or she knows you have Medicare. Also, remember that Medicare supplemental (“Medigap”) plans are not sold through the marketplaces. Never give your Medicare number or Medicare card to some-
one you don’t know. You can report suspected Medicare fraud at www.StopMedicareFraud.gov. Q: What about people I know who do not have Medicare or other health insurance? A: There is good news for these folks! People who do not have insurance will be able to buy health plans through the marketplaces, or they may qualify for expanded Medicaid. Coverage starts Jan. 1. Many people will also be eligible for financial assistance to help pay their premiums. These folks include early retirees who are waiting for Medicare coverage, or they could be your adult children or grandchildren. Help your friends and loved ones by letting them know they have new options. They can learn what’s available by going to www.healthcare.gov or calling 1-800-318-2596.
Pope Francis said he’ll review priest celibacy rules HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? President Obama vowed Friday to veto a government funding bill that defunds ObamaCare. We’re out of money in six days. The most embarrassing part is, by next week, our government could be shut down and Bashar al-Assad’s government could still be working. Alabama’s Nick Saban’s agent reportedly talked to Texas about taking the Texas job next year. What a war that’d start. Oklahoma State might stop denying they provided sex for freshman recruits and start advertising that they provide sex for freshman recruits. Miley Cyrus’s fiance broke up with her due to her number at the MTV Awards when she twerked with her tongue hanging out. To save her career, she needs a disease to overcome. We’d all have to tone down our Miley Cyrus jokes if it turns out she has epilepsy. Grand Theft Auto’s new video game made eight hundred million dollars Friday. You steal a car and begin a road trip through car crashes, shootings, boat sinkings, and burning buildings. If you play Grand Theft Auto backwards, it’s called Insurance Company. The Powerball Lottery numbers were drawn and one person in South Carolina won the four hundred million dollar grand prize Friday. There’s more. To keep up with the changing times, the Pow-
Topical humor Argus Hamilton
erball will give participation trophies to everyone who played. Pope Francis said he’ll review priest celibacy rules and urged the church to ease up on gay issues and abortion. He added that atheists may get into heaven. With each passing day this pope sounds less like a Bishop of Rome and more like your old pot dealer. GOP former House leader Tom DeLay’s money laundering conviction was overturned in Texas Friday. The ordeal made him a better man. He remained free on bail during four years of appeal, time which he spent in Austin crusading for laws against prison rape. Russia’s president Vladimir Putin announced Friday he may run for a fourth term as president of Russia. He said he will listen to the people. In Russia’s last election, it’s widely believed that Vladimir Putin won over sixty percent of the vote, but who’s counting. Chicago reported another round of shootings Friday that put the Windy City number one statistically in homicides nationally. They replaced New York as America’s murder capital. That’s surprising because New York has twice the number of NFL teams as Chicago.

Bedridden person can ring the bell Dear Heloise: My sisterin-law was BEDRIDDEN, and my brother-in-law had just retired and had lots to do around the house. Every time he would go outside, she would call him. Sometimes he couldn’t hear her, so he couldn’t go out to the garage. We bought them a batterypowered doorbell and had him put the doorbell ringer on her headboard. One bell was in the back family room, and the other in the garage. When she needed him, she just pushed the doorbell ringer, and he could come running. It was such a blessing to both of them. — Marianne D. in Kansas This is a good hint for anyone who is a nurse to someone who’s sick at home. With cold and flu season coming up, I’d say it’s time to buy a cheap doorbell! — Heloise VINEGAR SPRAY Dear Heloise: I love cleaning with vinegar, and I keep a spray bottle of one-third white vinegar and two-thirds water by my kitchen sink for cleaning raw vegetables. I even spray it on the outside of melons before slicing them. — Cathie in Amarillo, Texas Cathie, vinegar is a good cleaner for many things.

— Caroline D. in Iowa EASY FIX Dear Heloise: I have French doors that separate my den from the rest of the house. The other day, I tried to close the doors to keep the dogs in the den for a while, but the doors wouldn’t stay completely closed. I grabbed a rubber band and wrapped it around both doorknobs. This kept the doors closed tightly enough that the dogs were contained. — K.E. in Mississippi Glad it worked for you. Some dogs and many cats can figure out how to open and close doors, so keep an eye on them. — Heloise RUBBER PLACE MAT Dear Heloise: Rubber shelf lining makes great place mats when cut into pieces.

Take action, be prepared, with CodeRED emergency notification system It is time to enroll to receive CodeRED emergency messages from Adair, Guthrie and Union counties during September’s National Preparedness Month. Emergency management officials will send out CodeRED alerts related to any potential storm activity, evacuations and shelter locations. Those who have already enrolled to receive CodeRED alerts, but have recently moved or changed telephone numbers, are encouraged to visit Adair and Guthrie county’s website at www.adaircountyiowa.org or Union County’s website www.unioncountyiowa to update their contact information. “We need to be able to reach our communities in case of an emergency,” said Robert Kempf, Adair and Guthrie counties emergency management coordinator. “Be proactive and make sure we have your contact information in the CodeRED database so you can keep yourself, your family and your property protected in case of an emergency or disaster situation.” During enrollment, citizens may customize if they would also like to receive general alerts in addition to emergency alerts and how they would like to receive them. Citizens are encouraged to save the telephone number 866-419-5000 in their telephone’s contacts to easily identify when a CodeRED emergency alert is being delivered. Residents without Inter-
net access may call Adair and Guthrie Emergency Management at 641-3323030 or Union County Emergency Management at 641-782-1622 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday) to subscribe by supplying their information over the phone. “Sometimes it takes a nationally-recognized campaign like National Preparedness Month to get the word out about CodeRED,” said Jo Duckworth, Union County Emergency Management coordinator. “Our number one priority is to keep our citizens safe. The only way to do that is to get them better prepared, and the best way to be prepared is to be informed using the CodeRED system.” Notifications are provided at no cost to all residents. The system in Adair and Guthrie counties is paid for by the following sponsors Adair County EMA, Guthrie County EMA and Farmers National Bank of Fontanelle and Greenfield. If your business or organization would like to help sponsor the system, contact the emergency management office. Citizens are also encouraged to download the CodeRED mobile alert app to receive free locationspecific emergency, general and missing person notifications sent by public safety officials as they travel to other CodeRED communities that represent all 50 states and Canada. Visit iTunes or Google Play to download the app.

Adair-Guthrie Prepares created as health care coalition The coalition was formalized in June and includes Adair County Memorial Hospital, Adair County Home Care, Guthrie County Public Health and Nursing Services and Guthrie County Hospital with Adair/Guthrie Emergency Management as founding partner. Adair County Board of Supervisors will serve as fiscal agent for grants awarded to the coalition. The grant contract was finalized Sept. 18. The hospital and public health members of the coalition will be able to receive reimbursement for time and supplies used to improve their disaster capabilities and training. The members of the coalition have worked together on several events and projects over the years. Some of the more recent projects have included an
exercise with Iowa Disaster Medical Assistance Team during the 2013 Guthrie River Ruckus, the purchase and training on volunteer management and credentialing equipment, assisted in sponsoring an emergency operations/incident command post interface class for local responders and elected officials in August and education/awareness for the Adair/Guthrie emergency notification system. Stephanie Claussen of Adair County Home Care is serving as the coalition chairman, and Lisa Chiodo of Guthrie County Public Health and Nursing Services is the vice chairman. The coalition is looking for county and community contacts to help work on program and planning requirements. If interested, contact Claussen at 641-743-6173 or Chiodo at 641-747-3972.

GREENFIELD — Beginning fiscal year 2013, the Centers for Disease Control preparedness grants made available to hospitals and county public health agencies through the Iowa Department of Public Health became a competitive grant for the first time. Instead of allocating an amount to each entity individually, only a formalized “health-care coalition” was able to apply for funds. Adair-Guthrie Prepares coalition applied for a hospital and public health preparedness grant in July and was notified of an award totaling $51,567. The coalition was formed, in part, because Adair and Guthrie counties share an emergency management coordinator, Robert Kempf, and had already been working together on different projects.

B&B Cabaret Singers to perform Oct. 4 CORNING — B&B Cabaret Singers will perform an eclectic show of Broadway musical numbers from more than forty Broadway shows 7 p.m. Oct. 4 at Corning Opera House Cultural Center, 800 Davis Ave., Corning. The program includes hits from standards like “Oklahoma” and “My Fair Lady” to current popular shows, such as “Jersey Boys” and “Wicked.” B&B Cabaret Singers began 10 years ago when they were invited to perform at the Iowa State Fair. Brenda McConahay, accompanist and founder of the group, gathered six performers from her experiences at the Ingersoll Dinner Theatre in Des Moines. Though the theatre closed in 2004, the group has continued their performances and friendships since their formation. The group
includes Preshia Paulding, Anita Smith, Erin McNallyPoché, Robert Poché, Larry Mahlstedt and Kevin Spire. McConahay continues to organize the group and accompany them. The six actors represent 14 area Des Moines theatres and hundreds of productions. Their performances have embodied drama, children’s theatre, Shakespeare, impersonations, comedy, improv and musical theatre. Currently Contributed photo Paulding is playing Golde in B&B Cabaret Singers, pictured here, will perform Oct. 4 the Des Moines Playhouse at Corning Opera House Cultural Center, 800 Davis Ave., production of “Fiddler on the Corning.

CROP Walk set for Oct. 6 The 2013 CROP Walk for World Hunger will be held 3 p.m. Oct. 6. Participants will meet at the gazebo south of the Greater Regional Medical Arts Plaza at 2:30 p.m. for registration. The walk will take place in and around McKinley Park with participants choosing a two-, four- or six-mile route. The CROP Hunger Walk is an annual fall event sponsored by Union County Ministerial Alliance. Twenty-five percent of the money raised from the CROP Walk will remain in Union County to help the needy. The Ministerial Alliance will distribute Union County’s portion of the walk to individuals in need of food. Thrivent Financial has pledged $600 in matching funds for the project. “This year we are adding a canned food drive in addition to collecting monetary donations,” said Lynne Schlaht, who along with her husband John, are coordinators of this year’s walk. “Many people have told us that they wanted to do more locally, so we thought a canned food drive for MATURA was a good idea.”
Canned goods may be brought to Hy-Vee or Fareway Oct. 5 and left with CROP Walk volunteers who will be collecting cash donations from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Last year, $533.83 was collected on the Saturday before the CROP Walk. Those not participating in the walk may drop off canned goods at the gazebo from 2:30 to 5 p.m. Oct. 6. “If you can’t make it to the CROP Walk on October 6, you can still collect pledges and walk on a different day,” said Schlaht. “If you can only walk a mile or less, that’s OK. The point is to walk however long you can. We walk because so many people around the world have to walk miles to get food, water and medical supplies.” Healthy snacks and bottled water will be provided before and after the walk by Fareway and Hy-Vee. In case of rain, walkers may use the walking track at the YMCA. To obtain a pledge envelope and more information, contact John and Lynne at 782-2400 or local churches. A record total of $7,058.84 was raised in 2012. This year’s goal is to surpass last year’s total.

Jackman leaves lasting impact on Iowa Falls IOWA FALLS — Residents, particularly those involved with bringing actor Hugh Jackman to town, are basking in the afterglow of Saturday night’s red carpet event. Jackman offered a premiere of his most recent film, “Prisoners,” and a screening of another, “The Wolverine,” in the historic Metropolitan Theatre. About 300 ticket holders got in, generating about $20,850 for the Ellsworth Municipal Hospital Foundation. Even before the Hollywood searchlights on Washington Avenue stopped sweeping the sky, though, at least a few folks in the crowd were already wondering what might come next now that Hollywood knows how to find Iowa Falls. It’s a legitimate question considering Patrick Whitesell, a native of Iowa Falls, is Jackman’s agent. Whitesell and his father, Jack, recently pulled the historic building out of bankruptcy, investing about $500,000 in a renovation project. Whitesell’s day job, however, is co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor, a leading firm in the entertainment industry. The megafirm started in 2009 with the merger of the William Morris Agency and Endeavor Agency. Besides Jackman, the new venture and Whitesell also represent plenty of other A-list actors. They reportedly include Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jennifer Garner, Denzel Washington, Kevin Costner, Jude Law and Jake Gyllenhaal, according to the International Entertainment Buyers Association, a nonprofit trade organization. Whitesell only smiled as he walked Saturday night from Estes Park to downtown Iowa Falls, declining comment on what, if any, other events are on the horizon. At his side, besides Jackman, were his 85-year-old father, Jack; wife, Lauren Sanchez; and 24-year-old son, Schuyler.
Jackman, though, threw out a couple of intriguing possibilities. “I might buy a place here,” he told one television news crew. “I’m a bit of a country boy at heart,” Jackman said earlier. “I’ve never felt so welcome in any town.” Jackman traveled with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, and their children, Oscar, 13, and Ava, 8, to the event -- a rarity, he said. They arrived in Iowa Falls about 2 p.m. and spent part of the day fishing. Jackman caught a catfish, though it was nothing to brag about, he said. “It was definitely a throw-back situation,” Jackman added. The power family seemed to enjoy what small-town Iowa offered, according to City Manager Jody Anderson. So much so, Oscar Jackman apparently opted out of seeing Dad’s movies and walking the red carpet. The young man kept fishing. “He hates this stuff,” Jackman said. Buying property in Franklin County was perhaps primarily a bit of endearing wit. Jackman’s other suggestion may prove more plausible: an annual film festival at the Metropolitan Theatre. Jackman dropped the idea during another interview on the red carpet, elaborating on the evening’s theme of preserving the movie-going experience. Multiple times he endorsed the Metropolitan as a shining example. “It’s a beautiful building and a beautiful theater. It should be celebrated and it should be saved,” Jackman said. —————— ©2013 Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (Waterloo, Iowa) Visit Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (Waterloo, Iowa) at www.wcfcourier. com Distributed by MCT Information Services

Small town, big opportunity Mount Ayr’s Sobotka draws interest from D-I schools By SCOTT VICKER
CNA sports editor • email@example.com
Mount Ayr senior • Height — 6-2 • Weight — 220 pounds • 40 yard dash — 4.52 seconds • Bench press — 250 pounds • Squat — 485 pounds • Hang clean — 315 pounds • Schools interested — Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, University of Northern Iowa, Northwest Missouri State
MOUNT AYR — Mount Ayr senior Jacob Sobotka dreamed of being a football player as a young child. His dream is coming true, as he’s helped lead Mount Ayr to 13 consecutive regular season wins. Last year, he was named to the INA Class 1A All-State first team as a utility player after leading the state in total yards and touchdowns for the Raiders, who bowed out in the state quarterfi- Sobotka nals, just before reaching the UNI-Dome. But, Sobotka’s dream isn’t quite totally fulfilled yet. He still has bigger dreams for after the conclusion to his senior season as a Raider. Sobotka dreams of playing at the next level, in college. And, it seems, that dream will come true. “I’ve always dreamed of playing college football, so it’s great to know I might have an opportunity to do that,” Sobotka said. “Ever since I’ve been a little kid, I’ve wanted to be a football player. Almost every little kid does, dreams of playing with the big boys.”
Big opportunity But, Sobotka said he never imagined he’d have an opportunity to play at the Division I level in college since he’s from a small town and plays for a small school. After his freshman year of high school, he attended a three-day football camp at Iowa State. That’s when the Cyclone coaching staff began to take notice of Sobotka, and when he realized maybe his dream could come true. “After the testing day, when we ran 40s and shuttle and broad jump

is when I was first contacted by a coach, just because of the times I ran,” Sobotka said. “Then they watched me the rest of the camp, and liked what they saw.” Iowa State was the first school to
show interest in Sobotka. But after Sobotka attended a camp at the University of Iowa the following year, the Hawkeyes were quick to jump on the Sobotka bandwagon. “That’s one of the most amazing
parts, is that was one of the reasons I never imagined I would even get an opportunity, because I was from such a small school and a small town,” Sobotka said. “To go up to these recruiting things and see all
these kids from the Des Moines area schools, and then I also have seen kids from Eight-Man schools, but I think it really shocked me that I even got a chance and that they even look at these small schools. I was just appreciative of being given that chance, given what kind of school I’m from.” Mount Ayr co-head football coach Delwyn Showalter said it’s been a new experience for one of his players to be recruited by Division I teams. “We’re not in a situation where this happens to us all the time,” Showalter said. “If you’re at a bigger school where you have the D-I coaches coming through all the time, you might get tired of it. We all take a lot of pride in what Jacob has accomplished. We’re excited for him and we’re sort of living vicariously through his experience.” As far as Showalter can remember, the most recent Mount Ayr graduates to play at the Division I level are Clint Riggs (Iowa State) and Scott Solliday (Kansas), who both graduated in 1985, and Ronnie Landphair (Iowa State), who graduated in 1992.
Showalter said it’s easy to see why Please see SOBOTKA, page 4S

CORNING — One hundred and ten drivers from four states made the haul to the Adams County Speedway to vie for their share of over $27,000 in prize money posted for the 16th annual NAPA Tradition. Brett Heeter from Kansas City, Kan., was the feature division stock car winner, leading all 30 laps after having the good fortune of drawing the pole starting position for both his heat race and the feature event. Heeter held off a hard charging ACS regular, Corning’s own Clay Mercer, to get the win by a margin of only .026 seconds. Mercer had started 11th in the field and had worked his way up to second place with 10 laps remaining, but was never able to make the pass for the win. Brad Derry, another ACS regular from Bedford came in third, followed by 2012 Tradition winner Lance Deal of Fort Dodge in fourth. ACS track champion (2011) Jason Rold was fifth and five-time IMCA national champion Jeff Anderson of Atlantic finished sixth. The 25 lap modified feature event was interrupted on lap number 12 when then leader Russell Stewart of Mount Ayr ended his night with his car cartwheeling down the front stretch, landing upsidedown on Ben Wolverton’s machine, and finally coming to rest just shy of the flagstand. Six cars left the race due to damages sustained in the incident, but luckily none of the drivers suffered serious injury. When the racing resumed it was Conception Junction, Missouri’s Kirby
Stiens and Altoona’s John Davis running one and two for the lead. Just after taking the white flag, their cars touched, slowing them just enough that 2013 class champion Brian Foote, who had started 13th in the field of 22, was able to motor around them on the high Foote side and streak to the win. Corning’s Jesse Dennis was able to tail Foote around and finish second while Davis and Stiens finished third and fourth. Harlan’s Brandon Monson rounded out the top five. The 24 lap hobby stock feature event was the marathon race of the evening, being slowed by no less than 12 caution flags, including one red flag period. Kiel Brittain, a young driver from Clarinda, had his race come to an early end on lap number two when a broken wheel in turn two let the car dig in and barrel roll several times. While Brittain walked away unharmed, the race car wasn’t so lucky. On track it was two-time IMCA national champion Shannon Anderson leading from flag to flag after starting outside in the front row. Being up front, Anderson was able to avoid the multiple spins, oil spills, and on-track debris items which brought flagman Daniel Duranceau’s yellow flag out of its holster on a regular basis. The IMCA hobby stocks from around Iowa brought their A-game to Adams County, claiming four of the top five spots in the race. Second through fifth were Jason Fusselman
(Shelby), Devin Smith (Lake City), Andy Davison (Clarinda), and Cody Nielsen (Fort Dodge). Davison was the only ACS regular in the top five. Reigning ACS class champion Jeremy Purdy of Bedford ended with a very respectable sixth-place finish after being shuffled to the back early and battling his way through the mayhem. In the B-mod feature it was Red Oak’s Jerod Weston holding off Essex’s Blain Petersen for the win. Twenty-five b-mods started the feature on a smooth, dry-slick race track and handled the conditions like true professionals with only two cautions slowing the 20 lap event. Weston came from outside row number three to take the lead away from Atlantic’s Ed Hamilton on lap number four and then had to hold off 2013 class champion Jon Plowman until a lap 12 flat tire ended his hopes for victory. Plowman’s exit and a great restart on lap 13 let Petersen move into second place, but he was never able to make it past Weston for the win. At the checkers it was Weston, Petersen, Don Doebelin (Council Bluffs), Josh Cooper (Prescott), and Josh Sink (Stanton). The next action at the Adams County Speedway will be a swap show/ vendor fair to be held on Sunday, Oct. 20. Race car parts and supplies, along with a multitude of other items, will be on hand for the event. Then the 2013 awards banquet will be held at the Cass County Community Center in Atlantic on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014. Then the 31st consecutive year of NASCAR sanctioned dirt track racing will return to the track next April.

Public notice Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain Publication Date: 9-24-2013 This is to give notice that The City of Creston has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management, to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain will have on the human environment for a Sanitary Sewer Project under Potential Community Development Block Grant Funding. The proposed project will consist of cured in place pipe lining.(slip-lining) and spot repairs of approximately 1,595 Linear Feet of 12 pipe and 2,780 Linear Feet of 21 pipe. There will also be approximately 17 manhole rehabilitations. This trunk sewer line infrastructure is experiencing inflow and infiltration, which is affecting the city s ability to meet NPDES Permit limits. The project area will be in less than 1 acre (estimated) of 100 and 500year floodplain area. The proposed project(s) is located at Irving Street (including some open area), bound between Lincoln Street and Oak Street, North on Oak Street, Northeast from the corner of Spencer Street and Oak Street through the 700 block of North Oak and North Elm Streets to Elm Street, and then east through the 700 block of North Elm and North Maple Streets to Maple Street in The City of Creston, Union County. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Written comments must be received by The City of Creston at the following address on or before October 9th, 2013: City of Creston City Hall, 116 West Adams Street, P.O. Box 449, Creston, IA 50801 and 641.782.2000, Attention: Warren Woods, Mayor. Comments may also be submitted or further information can be requested via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Creston City Hall, 116 West Adams Street, Creston, Iowa, 50801.

The Panthers were fresh off a strong outing against defending district champion Council Bluffs St. Albert, while Nodaway Valley was coming off its first win of the season. “Our defense played great and gave us chances to be in the game,” Nodaway Valley head coach Steve Shantz said. “They had two big plays that led to their two scores. Our defense had many three-andouts, and held Panorama to a field goal after they had first and goal at our 5.” Gavin Richey hit Chase Hennen for a 44-yard touchdown in the first quarter and Jonas Possner hit a 26-yard

SOBOTKA: Continued from page 1S
Sobotka is being recruited by collegiate programs. “He’s got the complete package,” Showalter said. “He’s got the size, he’s got the speed, he’s got the strength. He’s intelligent. He’s f o o t b a l l Showalter intelligent, but he’s also a tremendous classroom student. “His work ethic is second to none,” he continued. “In our size school, it’s not unusual to have a kid with a couple of those attributes. It’s pretty rare to have a kid with all of those attributes. We’ve maybe had a kid with the speed or strength to play Division I football, but didn’t have the size. Jacob is a kid that seems to have what it takes in all those areas.” And that’s been the feedback Sobotka has gotten from the coaches who have recruited him. Sobotka said coaches also feel like he fits the mold of the other in-state kids they’ve recruited — kids who weren’t highly recruited, but go in and work hard and are developed into strong, collegiate players.
It’s those type of players that gives Sobotka hope. Players like Iowa’s James Morris, who played high school football at Solon, Kansas State’s Jake Waters of Council Bluffs St. Albert and former Iowa tight end Brandon Myers of PCM, Monroe, who currently plays for the New York Giants. “It shows me that it can be done, that it’s not impossible,” Sobotka said. “There’s no reason to doubt myself that it can be done.” “I think both Iowa and Iowa State do a great job of taking kids with a strong work ethic and kids who want to play, and do a good job of developing those guys,” Showalter said. “He reminds me quite a bit of Brandon Myers, who played at PCM. I can see him developing into that type of a player, which wouldn’t be too bad.
“I think in the discussions I’ve had with these coaches, they really feel like he’s got a lot of untapped potential on the defensive side,” Showalter said. “We have to have him focus on offense for us. He plays defense, but we don’t play him there full time. He really hasn’t had an opportunity to focus his energies on defense. They look at what he’s done on offense and his size and speed, and once he has the ability to focus on defense, he’ll really blossom on that side.” And, Showalter believes Sobotka’s best days of playing football are still ahead of him. “He’s got a lot of room to grow,” he said. “He gets into college and is working in their weight program and eating at their table, he’s going to get bigger. When he’s playing on one side of the ball and not having to play offense and defense, his technique’s going to get better. As good as he is now, his best football is ahead of him.”
Defense Currently, Sobotka might be best known for running over defenders as Mount Ayr’s dual-threat quarterback. But, he’s also an outstanding defensive player at linebacker for the Raiders, and that’s where it appears he’ll likely end up in college. Sobotka said Iowa, Iowa State and Kansas State are looking at him to play linebacker, while Northern Iowa and Northwest Missouri State have said they will be flexible with him.
Highlight For Sobotka, the highlight of his recruiting process came just a few short weeks ago, when Iowa State head coach Paul Roads visited Mount Ayr Community High School. Rhoads visited three weeks ago, before Mount Ayr’s home game against Bedford. He visited with Sobotka and the Mount Ayr coaching staff.
Panther JV falls to ADM
Defensive coordinator Wally Burnham then attended the first half of the football game. “That was really exciting just to have him here and get to talk to him one-on-one,” Sobotka said. “It was really a high point. It was a highlight of the whole recruiting process, to see him walking in the halls we walk in every day.” “When Paul Roads shows up and is standing in our weight room watching kids work out, that’s exciting for everybody,” Showalter said. “We’re all kind of sharing the excitement of what Jacob’s going through.” Sobotka doesn’t have any plans to make a decision in the near future. If he is offered a scholarship by a program, he has until February to sign a National Letter of Intent. For now, he plans to continue focusing on the 2013 Mount Ayr Raiders’ season, because he still has two more dreams to fulfill during his high school career. “We want to win a district championship,” he said. “That’s the first and foremost thing we want to take care of. And then we want to make a deep playoff run. if we can get to the Dome, that would be amazing. That’s a dream we’ve all had. We have a picture of it above our weight room and we hit it every day before we go in there.”

ADM scored 26 unanswered points in the second half to overtake the Creston/O-M junior varsity football team Monday, 26-14. The Panthers had taken a 14-0 halftime lead on touchdown passes by Alex Nielsen to Brandon Jones for 25 yards, and Josh Reed to Sam Hartsock for 30 yards. The Panther freshmen, meanwhile, capitalized on a late ADM turnover to snare a 14-12 victory at Adel Friday night, scoring with 1:09 remaining. In the JV game, ADM scored its second touchdown with 7:28 remaining, but Panther defensive back Chris Foster knocked down a two-point pass to preserve a 14-13 lead over the Tigers. It was short-lived, however, as ADM quarterback Francis Weiland scored with 2:23 remaining as the visitors gained the lead, 19-14, and the Panthers fumbled on the ensuing possession. In the final minute, ADM
defensive lineman Christian Swiler intercepted a pass as Nielsen was being sacked, and he returned it for the final touchdown in the 26-14 game. “I felt like we played a very good first half of football,” said Creston/O-M coach Kevin Cooper. “We went into halftime with a 14-0 lead and I felt like we played good in all three phases of the game. In the second half we really struggled on both offense and defense. We started the half with the ball and just couldn’t get anything going. They scored a TD late to put the game out of reach. We had our chances, but couldn’t convert.” Creston/O-M (1-2) plays at Perry next Monday.
