Four vie for school board

Eagan

Flynn

Snodgrass

Tom Eagan has been a self-employed electrician for seven years. Before that, he worked at Central Iowa Power Cooperative for six years as a dispatcher, and as an electrician at Bunn-O-Matic for 12 years before that. Q: What will you do to make Creston School District better? A: “I’d like to see if there’s some way to maybe speed up the process,” Eagan said. “One example is how long it’s taking for the bus barn. There’s got to be a better way to maybe speed up, get information faster on the bus barn.” Q: How will you go about achieving that goal? A: “Hopefully, try to get the board to work together a little bit more,” said Eagan. “It seems they go off on tangents a little bit to me. As a person of the public, it’s hard to get the information if I’m not at every meeting. ... What I’d like to see them do is have a website, and record the meeting and have them put it on there for the public.” Q: Why do you think you’re the right one for the job? A: “As a parent, I’m more all about the kids, giving all the kids all the opportunities for them to succeed.”

Rich Flynn served on Creston School Board from 1999 to 2001. He then filled an empty position in 2003, and stayed on the board until 2006. Q: What will you do to make Creston School District better? A: “Continue working on the education of our students. We need to improve things for our younger children, not only in school, but at home, too. I wouldn’t have a problem with starting a student earlier. We’ve had the preschool grants. That helps with more class time with a teacher, which means you’d have to add either more hours to the day or days to the year. But then, you’ve got to be careful with that because that raises the cost to the taxpayer. And, half of my job is making sure the taxpayer gets their fair share.” Q: How will you go about achieving that goal? A: “We have to make the decision amongst our community that we are going to add more classroom time, maybe smaller classes, to get our students to have more time on task so that they can

Sharon Snodgrass, Creston School Board president, has been on the board since May 2012 when she replaced Kevin Scadden after he resigned from the board April 2012. Snodgrass was associate to the prekindergarten program at Creston Schools in 1970, and superintendent secretary in 1971-72. She then taught from 1972 to 2001. In 2001, she became curriculum director and school improvement coordinator 2001-2004 for Early Childhood Center, 20042011 principal kindergarten level, retired in 2011. Q: What will you do to make Creston School District better? A: “I think one of the things that we have to keep foremost in our minds is what is best for kids. All the while, we have to be cognizant of our fiscal responsibilties. I think improving student achievement is foremost among the priorities on our board, and for me, but we have a board that has that priority.” Q: How will you go about achieving that goal? A: “We have to keep communication lines open between administrators and the teachers

Galen Zumbach has been on Creston School Board for approximately two years. He replaced former board member Tammy Kavanaugh, who did not run for re-election. Zumbach graduated from Iowa State University with bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He retired after 33 years of teaching ag science and FFA advising in 2010. Q: What will you do to make Creston School District better? A: “It’s kind of like what Yogi Bear once said, ‘You’ve got to be very careful where you’re going because you might not get there.’ I think we have in place an administration group and teachers that are working well together in accepting our student needs. ... I want to continue forward with the direction our school district is heading. I want to be accessible to the public. I want to work extremely hard to make our school a safe and orderly environment.” Q: How will you go about achieving that goal? A: “It’s hard to say what will you do. We’ve done a lot of things. ...

Runaway tractor results in only minor injuries

DIAGONAL — A mechanical malfunction at the Diagonal tractor pull sent a runaway tractor and sled off the track and near spectators on Sunday afternoon. No one was seriously injured, but one spectator was taken to the hospital to check on minor injuries and was released. Jim Norris, a member of the Diagonal Lions Club, said the momentum of the weight box on the sled pushed the tractor up the embankment at the end of the 350-foot track. “The transmission under the weight box broke,” Norris said. “When they realized the sled malfunctioned, they were already a ways down the track. In the process of getting everything stopped, the box (on the sled) free rode, and the momentum of the box sent the tractor forward.” The malfunction ended the pulls for the day, but organizers were able to fix the transmission and finish the competition Monday afternoon. Norris said organizers have already discussed preliminary plans to make the event safer next year like extending the end of the track and putting up cement barriers. He said the details will be finalized at a future meeting. “You can’t control mechanical failures, but you can take precautions to make sure people are safe, and that’s what we are going to do,” Norris said.

We’re looking at a new technology plan. Whether it’s one on one, we want to make sure the technology is in place to support teacher instruction and student achievenemt in the 21st century. ... It’s interesting. Once you get on the board, there’s a reason the school board meetings last three hours or more. There are so many things going on, and it’s important teachers and administrators are working together, as well as with the support of the board.” Q: Why do you think

FLYNN: you’re the right one for the job? A: “I taught 33 years in the Creston school system. I worked with young people, not only in the classroom, but outside the classroom, to develop their academic ability. I think I bring a unique perspective to the board. ... I worked for several publishing companies for previewing and reviewing test books, and those are the types of things a lot of board members don’t have. There are a lot of good board members out there, but they don’t have that (experience).”

Hulett and Marlin later competed in bike races at the dirt track in Diagonal, earning a champion ribbon.

The Clowns were just part of the entertainment in the “mammoth” parade, which totaled more than 100 entries.

A: “I do believe that I have a good working knowledge of the things that happen at school, that make it a good opportunity for our students. I do have the best interest for students in my heart. I want them to have the best that they can from us, as part of the leadershep of the Creston School District.”

work better. The younger students need to be prepared ... so that they can get started. The more time that you spend in the classroom, more cost. We need to get everybody so that they are reading and comprehending at a younger age. We can add days to the year, we can add minutes to the days, we just have to have the minimum amount, but we have a great group of teachers that can provide a great education to the students. We need to get the parents involved at home. ... It’s just a cooperative effort amongst everybody to help educate our students.” Q: Why do you think

you’re the right one for the job? A: “I’ve got 10 and a-half years on the school board. I have seen a lot of things that none of the other members have seen. I think I have more time than all of them combined. Maybe it’s the experience that I can bring back to the board. We’ve started a lot of projects that I would like to see finished. ... Somebody needs to be able to see things from a different light, maybe not from the business world or the agriculture or education. Maybe someone who has spent more time with people, working with people, and not in one particular area, and that’s something I have done over the years.”

Divorces in Iowa lowest since 1968 DES MOINES (MCT) – Iowa’s economic downturn appears to be having an unexpected up side: fewer couples seeking to embark on costly divorce proceedings. Statewide, last year’s total of 6,715 marriage dissolutions that took place in Iowa was the lowest since 1968, when 6,511 couples terminated their marriages, according to data compiled by the state Department of Public Health. “What’s happening is the recession is keeping people from divorcing,” said Susan Stewart, an associate professor of sociology at Iowa State University whose area of expertise is family demography. Marriage dissolution spiked to a record 12,071 in 1981 – a rate of 4.2 per 1,000 Iowans — during a 20-year period of annual increases that encompassed Iowa’s decision to adopt a no-fault divorce law in 1970. They held relatively steady for the next 15 years before dropping below the 10,000 threshold in 1997 and post-

ing gradual declines until dropping below 7,000 last year for the first time in 44 years. Iowa’s divorce rate dipped to 2.2 per 1,000 residents in 2012 after hovering for three years at a 2.4 rate. That compares to a national divorce rate of 3.4 per 1,000 calculated by the Center for Disease Control’s National Survey of Family Growth – a threshold that has declined steadily since its peak in 1981. “I’m excited about that trend and I hope that trend continues,” said Adam Storey, director of marriage and family life for the Catholic Diocese of Des Moines Experts who deal with family-related issues say Iowa’s decline may or may not mean that spouses are getting along better. Couples in troubled relationships may be living separately but not pursuing divorces or they may be forgoing marriage so when their long-term relationship ends it does not show up in dissolution statistics, they note.

OPINION Gone with the Schwinn

The Wall Street Journal had one of its trademark front-page features the other day about how slow-bicycling sans spandex and road helmets is making a fast comeback. One man’s “Slow Bicycle Movement” Facebook group has 7,300 members, the article said. Has to do with Boomers, of course, the elephant in the python, and our yearnings for the leisurely biking we did as kids. Our bikes back then were as much portable seats as anything else, not unlike the shooting sticks used as stools by British sportsmen. We balanced atop our Schwinns, joking, talking and goofing off as much as we rode. Bikes often were helpful getting somewhere —to a friend’s house, the store, school, the YMCA’s overchlorinated swimming pool --but I don’t ever remember racing

King Features commentary Rheta Johnson

anyone or worrying about my individual time going up and down the twin hills that flanked our suburban home. The show-offs in our gang rode with “no hands” derring-do that often resulted in bloody knees. Our bikes looked different, too, from those owned by “serious” cyclists since gears and gear became the prevailing fad. Girls often had baskets or bells, boys had horns, and most of us had baseball cards attached to the spokes to make a satisfying click when the tires spun. When my late husband Don was a small child during World War II,

with its rationing and short supplies, you couldn’t buy a new bicycle. He was delighted when Santa delivered a “new” bike one Christmas with Donald Duck on the handlebars. He was delighted, that is, until a friend said the distinctive duck bike had previously been his. Bicyclists of my childhood wore more corduroy than Lycra. We wore to bike whatever we happened to be wearing —cut-off jeans, flip-flops, overalls or the occasional sundress. I think I gave up bicycling when those awful form-fitting britches became the norm. Even the most toned and dedicated cyclist looks all thighs in those. There was another reason I haven’t biked in years. I was scared. Every friend I knew who biked routinely eventually had an accident. Betty

got hit by a car while returning from work in D.C. John got creamed in New Orleans and was laid up for a time. Now my good friend Eddie in Iuka, Miss. — where there’s scarcely enough traffic to justify the town’s one stoplight --spun out of control to miss a belligerent dog. That said, this slow movement is much more appealing. A group called Boston Leisure Bicycling includes ice-cream stops in its outings. That surely sounds more like what I remember from childhood, when it was possible to eat a Popsicle and coast down the hill while singing and waving at school friends. When I think about it, walking used to be different, too. And running. We did a lot of both in childhood, but neither was something that required special shoes, shorts

or earphones. When an activity gets its own clothing line and related paraphernalia, the fun goes out the window. Ditto too much organization, as in marathons and meets. It’s probably not a good sign that The Wall Street Journal made much of so-called slow-biking and proclaimed it a fad with Facebook clubs. Next thing you know there will be slow-biking clothes, fancy footwear and $3,000 beaters for old bike bums like me. *** To find out more about Rheta Grimsley Johnson and her books, visit www.rhetagrimsleyjohnsonbooks.com.

Remember when Mr. Tom Mattison spoke to us on Nov. 17, 1997, at Creston High School? He spoke how large hog confinements were polluting the waters of his beautiful state of North Carolina. On Nov. 26, 1997, the Union County Soil and Water Conservation District, Creston City Water Works and Southwest Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) expressed concern about responsible management of waste and respon-

sible location of large confinement facilities. In 1998, Bishop Raymond Burke of the La Cross, Wis., diocese declared that a large scale animal confinement clearly does not serve the common good. It is geared at ever greater production and profit for a few at a lethal cost to the general population through destruction of the environment. Professor Stephen Mayer of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology rated all 50 states according to the strictness of their environmental protection policies and

found “...states with stronger environmental policies consistently outperformed the weaker environmental states on all the economic measures.” Industrialized agriculture makes decisions solely in the interest of profit. It takes no account of hidden costs borne by the community. It pollutes the physical environment that creates hazards to health, it pollutes the social environment that creates social chaos. “It’s every man for himself, cried the elephant, as he danced among the chickens.” – Charles Dickens

Support Southwestern Community College facilities levy From Dr. Tony Cass, board member

Southwestern Community College

I am writing this letter in support of Southwestern Community College’s facilities levy, which will be on the Sept. 10 voting ballot. Every 10 years the college has to take this issue to the voters. The levy has passed each time since 1966. Funds generated by this levy are used for repairs and renovations at the college’s main campus in Creston and the centers in Osceola and Red Oak. The college has an enrollment of approximately 1,700 students each year. In addition, the college’s

adult and continuing education programs serve more than 10,000 Area XIV residents annually. The college also assists in meeting the economic development needs of the region. Since 1983, the college’s 260E and 260F programs have assisted more than 175 companies in Area XIV, which equates to more than 10,000 employees. The levy makes up 100 percent of the college’s plant fund and is used on projects such as remodeling of existing buildings, lighting repairs, parking lot repair/expansion, sidewalk maintenance, interior/exterior painting, fire safety needs and required ADA/OSHA repairs. These funds cannot be used for salaries.

The college’s facilities levy amounts to 20 1/4 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation tax on property. For example, when rollback is considered on a residential property with an assessed valuation of $100,000, the annual cost would be $10.70. The cost of the levy is spread throughout Southwestern Community College’s service area. Southwestern’s merged area touches 13 Iowa counties – Adair, Adams, Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Madison, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie, Ringgold, Taylor, Union and Wayne. Please vote YES in support of Southwestern Community College on Sept. 10.

MIAMI — Diana Nyad’s No. 1 rule of marathon swimming prohibits support crew members from telling her how far she has to go to reach her destination. For the sake of her brain more than her body, it’s better not to know how many miles she must stroke before she sleeps. But on Monday morning, two days after jumping into the ocean in Havana, she knew she was getting close to Key West. She paused, treading water, to thank her crew. She was two miles from shore, and nothing would stop her. “This is a lifelong dream of mine and I’m very, very glad to be with you,” Nyad said, bobbing in the water, apologizing for the slurred speech emitting from her swollen lips. “So let’s get going so we can have a whopping party.” Just before 2 p.m. EDT, after 52 hours, 54 minutes 18.6 seconds and 110 miles, Nyad crawled out of the water and staggered onto Smathers Beach as hundreds of onlookers cheered and blew conch shells. Her face was puffy, her legs unsteady and her skin, marinated in saltwater, looked like sandpaper. Yet Nyad, who only stops talking when she’s not swimming, had the strength to share the inspiration of her record feat. “I got three messages,” she said. “One is, we should never ever give up. Two is, you’re never too old to chase your dreams. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport, but it’s a team.” She gave a fist pump and flashed a peace sign before paramedics lifted her onto a stretcher and hooked her up to IV bags. On her fifth and what she swore was her final attempt, Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the drafting aid of a shark cage. She did it 10 days after her 64th birthday, which makes her accomplishment even more incredible. Not just because she’s a woman who has been empowering women with her examples of endurance for decades. Not just

because she keeps proving that old is a state of mind and that she is, as she says, “in the middle of middle age.” But because she first tried this epic crossing in 1978, as a 28-year-old and refused to abandon her goal. Despite four aborted attempts, jellyfish stings that scarred her arms and chest, ferocious currents and unpredictable eddies that dragged her far off course, sharks, storms, hallucinations, nausea, hypothermia and the one thing no oceanographer, marine biologist or physician could address — doubt — Nyad could not let go of her dream. She could not erase her vision of her arrival in Key West, emerging from blue world into green world, symbolic of man’s evolution. After 35 years, her journey is complete. She made the trip by singing Beatles, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and Neil Young songs to herself in rhythm with her 2-mph, 50-strokes-per-minute, metronomic pace. She followed a white streamer by day, adorned with red lights at night, that was attached to a 25-foot boom off the starboard side of her support boat Voyager. Kayakers and shark-scouting divers kept an eye out for predators. Angel Yanagihara, a box jellyfish expert from the University of Hawaii, was on the lookout for venomous “boxies” that have ruined previous attempts. She administered “Sting Stopper” gel to Nyad’s face. On the first night, Nyad also wore a claustrophobic, abrasive but protective silicone mask that looked like something a lucha libre wrestler would wear. Ideal conditions kept the jellyfish from swarming. Nyad paused — never hanging onto the boat — every 90 minutes or so for

protein drinks, bananas, peanut butter or pasta except Sunday night, when she was vomiting constantly. A storm increased swells to three to five feet but the current remained favorable. Nyad got fatigued and disoriented at times but still remembered to stop Sunday morning to sing Happy Birthday to a crew member while floating on her back. The people who accompanied Nyad across the Florida Straits through two long black nights (best friend Bonnie Stoll has been on each swim) and the people who waded and paddled alongside her the last 200 yards were overcome with emotion. All saw a little of themselves in Nyad’s struggle. Nyad, who began swimming as a youngster at Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale while reading books about polar explorers, wrote in her memoir Other Shores that she seeks challenges in order to “dig deeper and deeper into your gut until you arrive at that same core of pride and dignity that survivors know.” She was sexually abused as a teen and swimming helped her cope. Later, International Swimming Hall of Fame chief Buck Dawson encouraged her to be an open water swimmer. She set records circumnavigating Manhattan Island in eight hours and go-

ing 102 miles from Bimini to Juno Beach in 27.5 hours. In 1979 she retired and stopped swimming for 30 years. As she neared 60, the Cuba-Florida swim taunted the exuberant, Type A Nyad like an unfinished finish line. She wanted the “high of a commitment.” In 1978, inside a shark cage, she swam 42 hours and 76 miles before currents defeated her. Australian Susie Maroney completed the swim in 1997 in less than 24 hours, but in a shark cage pulled behind a boat. Nyad, who lives in Los Angeles, tried again without a cage, twice in 2011, then in August 2012, going 51 hours and 100 miles before stings to her lips and powerful eddies forced her to exit. This time, Nyad would not be beaten by Mother Nature. The swim began Saturday morning at Havana’s Hemingway Marina, named after former resident Ernest Hemingway, whose novel The Old Man and the

Sea contained the Nyad elements of age and grit. Beforehand, Nyad prepared in Key West, where the first sign of good fortune occurred when Nyad met a stranger of Cuban descent who didn’t know who she was but gave her a $2 bill his grandmother had given him years earlier for good luck on his voyage from Cuba to the United States. She intends to pass it on. She stayed at a friend’s cottage, where a photo of a man contemplating the sea hangs on a wall, inscribed with a passage from Pablo Neruda’s “Ode to Salt.” No coincidence that Nyad hears subliminal poetry when she swims. “Yes, that’s it,” she said, comparing her ocean journey to mountain climbing or space travel. “It’s infinitude I’m tasting.” ——— ©2013 The Miami Herald Visit The Miami Herald at www.miamiherald.com Distributed by MCT Information Services

Check the collar! Dear Heloise: Owners of cats and dogs need to be sure to check their pet’s COLLAR every day, especially if they still are growing. An animal outside, if the collar is not checked at all, can have problems. There should be room for two adult fingers when putting on a collar, and it should be checked often for the pet’s comfort and safety. -- Sue S. in Alabama This is a great reminder, Sue! Our furry friends rely on us to keep them safe and healthy! Two fingers (side by side), slipped between the collar and the pet’s skin, is the recommended standard for a well-fitting collar. There also are breakaway collars, which are particularly good for outdoor pets. They fall off if they get caught on anything as the pet wanders around or tries to jump over things, especially a fence. -Heloise MASKING SCUFFS Dear Heloise: Whenever I vacuum, I always manage to turn my baseboards black from the rubber on the vacuum sliding against it.

Clemson became the first nonSEC team to defeat a top-10 SEC team in back-toback seasons with its win over Georgia Saturday.

National Digest

Noles roll PITTSBURGH — Redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston passed for 356 yards and four touchdowns in a spectacular debut and No. 11 Florida State dominated Pittsburgh 41-13 on Monday night. Winston was nearly flawless, completing 25 of 27 passes and running for 25 yards and a score as the Seminoles gave the Panthers a rude welcome to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 126 yards and a score and Nick O’Leary hauled in three touchdown passes for Florida State. The Panthers had been pointing to the opener from the moment the program announced the move from the Big East to the ACC nearly two years ago. Playing in front of a rare sell-out, Pitt simply couldn’t keep up with the defending league champions. Tom Savage passed for 201 yards and a touchdown for Pitt but also threw a pair of interceptions.

Seneca signs GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers on Monday signed veteran quarterback Seneca Wallace to be the backup to Aaron Rodgers. To make room for Wallace on the roster, the Packers released quarterback B.J. Coleman. Wallace was with the team for its practice Monday. TheSan Francisco 49ers released him last week after he reportedly informed coach Jim Harbaugh that he planned to retire. Wallace said Monday that San Francisco “wasn’t the right fit” and that he never said he was retiring. “No, no. It’s just miscommunication between me and Harbaugh. We talked about it. I called him to communicate that to him. It was just pretty much miscommunication between me and him,” he said.

Federer exit NEW YORK — Right from the start, Roger Federer looked very little like, well, Roger Federer. In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the US Open, the owner of 17 Grand Slam titles got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken. In the second game, the man who has spent more weeks ranked No. 1 than anyone else dumped a backhand into the net, then shanked two other backhands several feet wide. No longer the dominant presence he once was, Federer lost in the round of 16 at Flushing Meadows for the first time in a decade, surprisingly beaten 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-4 by 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain on Monday night. “I kind of self-destructed, which is very disappointing,” said Federer, who made 43 unforced errors and managed to convert only 2 of 16 break points. “It was a frustrating performance.”

Panthers dominate opener, 50-20 New tailback rushes for 159 yards; Phipps tosses three TDs

Players see many bright spots in opening win

By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

CHARITON — Creston/O-M successfully opened the 2013 season with a 50-20 victory over Chariton Friday night. After falling behind 7-0 in the first quarter on a 65yard punt return, the Panthers scored 40 unanswered points to take a 40-7 lead early in the fourth period. With liberal substituting in the fourth quarter, the Panthers allowed two long touchdown passes to allstate tight end candidate T.J. Hockenson. Creston/O-M’s second unit also scored, on a 59-yard pass play from Alex Nielsen to Gavin Leith, and Conner Pals finished a productive night with a 27-yard field goal. Pals also scored two TDs — one rushing and one on a pass reception from Brandon Phipps — and had a starting role in the defensive secondary. Nielsen also had a passing reception touchdown, in addition to a TD on his only throw, and started at defensive safety. Chariton coach Curt Smyser said the Panthers’ depth made a big difference on a sweltering night. It was 95 degrees with no wind at kickoff, after the Panther freshmen defeated Chariton 35-0 in triple-digit temperatures. Eight-minute quarters and frequent breaks were part of that contest. It was still 92 at halftime of the varsity game. Chariton had the early edge, driving into Creston/O-M territory on an 11-play ball-control drive before stalling on the opening possession, and then

Chariton controlled the ball for 11 plays and the first seven minutes of the game, but fell short of scoring on the drive. All-state linebacker Trevor Frain said the defense regrouped. “I think with the heat, on the first drive, everybody was sucking wind a little at the start,” Frain said. “We had a little group meeting, and we turned it around and got fired up, and start- Frain ed flying around. We just stepped it up.” In the third quarter, Chariton senior quarterback Christian Bengston was rolling out to his left, with Frain bearing down on him at full speed. Just as he released the pass, Frain leveled him. Bengston laid face down, motionless, after the hit. Trainers rushed to his side,

scoring first on a 65-yard punt return by Stephen McCurdy. The teams traded turnovers in successive possessions in the second period, which ended with the Panthers holding a 13-7 halftime lead. A 20-point third quarter stretched the advantage to 33-7. Hockenson, a 6-5, 185-pound sophomore, scored twice in the fourth period while finishing with 180 yards on six catches.

Mount Ayr rocks Nodaway Valley By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

GREENFIELD — The “Battle for the Rock II” got off to a sloppy start here Friday, as the first two plays from scrimmage both resulted in lost fumbles. But after those first two plays, it didn’t take long for Jacob Sobotka and the Mount Ayr offense to look like a well-oiled machine in a 43-0 win over Nodaway Valley in the second edition of the trophy game. On the fourth play of Mount Ayr’s second possession, Sobotka carried the ball up the middle, cut to the right sideline and ran 43 Sobotka yards for a touchdown. From that point forward, it was all Mount Ayr. After a Nodaway Valley three-and-out, Erik Freed returned a punt to the NV 26-yard line. Freed would cap off a nine-play drive with a 3-yard score to put the Raiders up 15-0 after a 2-point conversion. “We were pretty happy with the way we performed,” Mount Ayr cohead coach Derek Lambert said. “I thought we executed really well. I thought the kids fought through the adversity of the heat. We’ve worked on a few new plays this year, and we did a good job with those. There’s a few things we have to correct, but overall, I thought we really performed well.” Mount Ayr kept things

going when Lincoln Martin took a shovel pass from Sobotka on a third-and-seven play, and went 55 yards for a touchdown, closing out the first quarter. Riley Weehler then capped off a six-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run to make the score 30-0 Mount Ayr with 9:01 left in the second quarter. The Raiders scored three rushing touchdowns in the first half, scored by three different players.

“Our speed is a lot better this year than it’s been in the past,” Lambert said. “We’ve got a lot of threats from a lot of different positions. One of our biggest surprises is probably our fullback. Riley Weehler l o o k s m u c h faster than last year. With Erik Freed, Lincoln M a r t i n Weehler

and Cody Stackhouse, we’ve got a lot of threats. We have a lot of guys who can run the ball and catch the ball. We can really spread the ball around, and I think it’s going to make it hard for teams to prepare for us.” Mount Ayr took a commanding 37-0 lead into the half after Sobotka connected with sophomore Jacob Taylor for a 90-yard touchdown with 7:07 to go in the half. “Jacob (Sobotka) has

worked really hard on his passing game — throwing the ball, being able to roll out and throw on the run,” Lambert said. “The long pass to Jacob Taylor, that’s something Jacob’s been missing the past couple of years is the touch. And boy, he really showed the touch on that one.” Sobotka finished the game 7-of-13 passing for 194

Area football Southwest Valley 60, Stanton 12 CORNING — One week after amassing 515 rushing yards in a win over Tri-County, the Southwest Timberwolves featured a much more balanced attack in a 60-12 win over Stanton here Friday. The Timberwolves rushed for 289 yards this time around, but also accounted for 202 yards through the air. Southwest Valley broke open a 20-6 ballgame when Jordan Stuart returned a punt 66 yards for a touchdown midway through the second quarter, igniting the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves scored 36 points in the quarter to put the game out of reach. “That was probably the biggest spark for us Friday,” head coach Kent Bass said. “That was the best we’ve executed our punt return to this point. Everyone got on their responsibility and Jordan was basically smooth sailing from the time he caught it until he crossed the goal line. It was a big momentum builder and the kids really built on it for the rest of the second quarter.” Stuart had a big game for the Timberwolves with the punt return for a touchdown, an interception and Stuart passing 6-of-9 for 196 yards and three scores. Zach Barton led the Corning rushing attack with 125 yards on 11 carries and three touchdowns. Gunner McCuen added 72 yards on 12 carries with a touchdown. Southwest Valley, now 2-0, travels to defending district champion Sidney (2-0) on Friday. “Sidney is the defending district champ, so this will be a big test at their place,” Bass said. “We fought like crazy to make sure the kids weren’t looking ahead. This will be one to watch.” Southwest Valley 60, Stanton 12 Stanton 0 6 0 6 - 12 SW Valley 8 36 16 0 - 60 1st quarter SWV — Zach Barton 6 run (2-pt. conversion), 7:44 2nd quarter SWV — Kallan Schmelzer 40 pass from Jordan Stuart (2-pt. failed), 10:52 S — Trevor Wood 72 kickoff return (2-pt. failed), 10:40 SWV — Scott Vanderhoof 31

East Union 48, Moravia 6 MORAVIA — The East Union Eagles bounced back from a Zero Week loss to pick up a 48-6 win over Moravia here Friday. The Eagles came out with a different offensive formation and it paid dividends, as East Union rushed for 320 yards in the win. “We did a lot of things right down there,” head coach Steve Kinyon said. “We had a little bit different running going on. We didn’t come out in that spread. We came out in a smaller package and were able to run the ball. Ran it tight and ran.” Sophomore Mike Ward led the Eagle rushing attack, picking up 152 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries. Jonathan Weis made Ward it an effective one-two punch with 100 yards on 20 carries. “We had Brandon Wittstock in the backfield and used him as a blocking back and they’d follow him and break one here and there,” Kinyon said. “It worked out well for us.” East Union’s defense stepped up in the win, as well. Devon Anderson scored on an interception return just

before halftime, sending the Eagles into the break with momentum. Attention now turns to powerful Adair-Casey and Clayton Plowman as the Eagles will visit the Bombers on Friday. “They’re going to run on us,” Kinyon said. “They’re predictable, but they’ve got big kids up front and big kids in the backfield. We’ll just have to make good tackles and make good plays.”

Murray 64, Mormon Trail 28 MURRAY — Andrew Rider scored six rushing touchdowns and added another on a 52-yard interception return as Murray rolled to a 64-20 halftime lead Rider on the way to Friday’s 64-28 win over Mormon Trail. Sam Rockhold’s 57-yard TD pass reception from Matt Barnes started a Mustang scoring flurry after Mormon Trail had closed the gap to 2220 early in the second period. Murray outscored the visitors 54-6 in the second quarter. Rider carried 17 times for 244 yards (14.4 average per carry). Barnes completed 2-of-5 passes for 68 yards. Rockhold finished with eight total tackles and a fumble recovery to lead the defense. George Barber had two tackles for losses. “We got off to another slow start in the first quarter as we are still trying to build some continuity on offense,” Murray coach Keith Shields said. “Our offense moved the ball all night. We just shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times early with our centerquarterback exchange. Our

defense was solid again all night after giving up two kickoff returns for touchdowns early in the game.” Murray, 1-1, hosts Ankeny Christian Academy this week.

Labor Day Trash Collection City of Creston There will be no trash collection on Monday, September 2, 2013. Residential collection normally picked up on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be delayed one day this week.

Scott Coen, Vice President/Branch Manager of State Savings Bank presents Creston’s Zach Powers with the July Athlete of the Month certificate. He is the son of Kendall and Ann Marie Powers of Creston. Zach Powers wrapped up his career as Creston’s baseball catcher by getting two hits in an 8-5 district tournament loss to Greene County. Powers struck out only two times all season, duplicating a junior campaign, also with only two strikeouts. Both were called third strikes this year. Powers was named a second-team all-district catcher in Class 3A West District, and named to the All-Hawkeye 10 second team. As a senior he batted .429 with two home runs, along with an improved defensive season behind the plate. Powers was the starting catcher for the Panthers for three seasons, learning the new position as a sophomore. Last year he batted .398 with only two strikeouts and 25 runs batted in. Zach states, “I am thankful for my teammates and coaches and I am extremely honored to receive this award.” Zach also participated in basketball.

Congratulations Zach on an outstanding job! — sponsored by —

The Spartans topped conference rival Southeastern Community College in the championship match, 18-25, 25-19, 15-11. The Spartans, now 7-2 for the season, went 2-0 in pool play by beating two Graceland University teams. That advanced them to the tournament gold round, where they beat Wentworth Military Academy in the semifinals, 25-16, 25-10. “We had great serve receive all day from Ashley Strong, Molly Schimp and Serena Yong,” said Southwestern coach Melissa Blessington. “They were able to give passes that (setter) Cassidy Yong could deliver to our hitters. At times we struggled hitting, but relentless defense was a key for us today.” The Spartan coach said the tournament victory builds momentum for a challenging week, starting with a home league match against NIACC at 6:30 p.m. WednesNOTICE TOHighland BIDDERS AND day, and the TourNOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING nament CITY in OF Kansas CRESTONFriday PUBLIC and IMPROVEMENT PROJECT Saturday.

heat wave was a concern going into the game. Hydration was stressed all week, and player rotations were planned to give breaks. However, players like Baker, Trevor Frain, Seth Maitlen and Tayler Pettit toiled on both sides much of the night with few rests. “Our conditioning was good,” Morrison said. “We didn’t have kids cramp up. I wanted kids to play hard. We were rotating seven guys on the offensive line and six on the defensive line. You build depth with 74 kids out, and that helps.” The original offensive plan was to alternate Baker and Frain at fullback and tailback, with Pals working in at tailback. It soon became apparent that Baker was a force at the feature back position, with Frain as his lead blocker out of the backfield. “We were just trying to figure out who is better at where,” offensive coordi-

nator Darrell Frain said. “Right now we’re a little bit better with Trevor blocking at H back. If that works, we’ll just leave him there and let Baker and Pals switch off at F back and keep them fresh. We pound the ball and get some playaction (passing) out of it for big plays. We were able to do that tonight.”

Knockout hit Defensively, Jesse Rathe had an interception for the Panthers and Frain, the Panthers’ all-state linebacker, had 12 total tackles, including three solo stops. Senior quarterback Christian Bengston was knocked out of the game, literally, on a crunching hit by Frain in the third quarter as he rolled out and released a pass. Trainers said Bengston was completely knocked out for a time, and suffered obvious concussion symptoms upon regaining consciousness. He was taken off the field by a transport vehicle for observation at a local medical facility. Junior Quin Storm played quarterback

some very good competition this week,” Blessington said. “Our team is really working well together as a unit.”

Line advantage Chariton coach Curt Smyser, hopeful for an improved season after consecutive 1-8 campaigns, gave credit to the Panthers for their play after the Chargers’ success moving the ball in the opening minutes. “You know what, they

just played better than us up front,” Smyser said. “They had more kids to sub than we did, and the weather sucks tonight. They are a good football team up front. Losing our senior leader (Bengston) with nine minutes to go in the third quarter affected us the rest of the way. He’s a good two-way player for us.” Casey Tanner, former Panther lineman who now coaches the offensive and defensive lines on Morrison’s staff, likes the team’s power-running combination and its ability to open up passing opportunities for Phipps and a large corps of capable receivers. “Guys like Baker and Pettit never run out of gas,” Tanner said. “Baker never gives up when he’s running with the ball. Our guards get on their blocks enough that guys aren’t going to be able to reach out and arm-tackle Baker or Frain.” Nine different players carried the ball for Creston/OM in the game, and seven different receivers had at

the rest of the way for the Chargers, finishing with 224 passing yards. But on his first series, Storm fumbled and Panther cornerback Maxx Walters scooped up the ball for a 28yard return to make it 26-7. Morrison, also the team’s defensive coordinator, felt it was a solid debut, except for some big plays allowed in the fourth quarter. “On that punt return we had him three times, and I thought we got blocked in the back all three times, honestly,” Morrison said. “We played our basic defense tonight. Kids flew around and played hard. There were some early wrinkles by them we hadn’t seen, and we adjusted well on the fly.”

O’Brien late model ‘King of the Hill’ By BURTON HEATON

Adams Co. Speedway

CORNING — With just one week of NASCAR Whelen All-American series racing left at the Adams County Speedway three of the five classes have already determined their champions. Jeremy Purdy has locked up the Chat Mobility hobby stock crown and Jon Plowman has also clinched the Stalker Chevrolet b-mod crown. Tony Hardisty has the Northland Oil pro-stock crown in the bag too. But the race in the two remaining classes couldn’t be closer. Brian Foote claimed a dramatic win to get within one point of Poet Biorefining modified point leader Jesse Dennis. In the feature division Coors Light Silver Bullet late models JC Wyman got his second win in as many weeks closing his margin to just three points behind class point leader Jason O’Brien. With each position worth two points, and five bonus points for a win it will all come down to the final week for those two classes.

Hobby stocks Bedford’s Jeremy Purdy

came to the speedway needing only a mid-pack finish to lock up the hobby stock championship, but driving conservatively wasn’t on his mind. Starting outside in row six Purdy was in the lead by the time f l a g m a n Purdy Daniel Duranceau displayed the crossed flags for half-way. Tom Myers, Luke Ramsey, and Andy Davison were all there to pressure Purdy for the remainder of the race, but Purdy went on to get win number seven in fourteen starts and lock up the championship. Myers, Kurt Hansen, Ramsey, and Davison rounded out the top five. The win also puts Purdy in strong contention to be the national NASCAR dirt track division five champion.

B-mods Utica, Nebraska’s Tony Rost made it three wins in five starts this season at ACS. Rost raced most of the 2013 NASCAR season at Junction Motor Speedway

just 25 miles from his home, but has since been coming to ACS to face a larger field in his attempt to claim the national championship. So far it’s been either checkers or wreckers for Rost with three wins and two DNFs. This week it was Rost and Essex’s Blain Petersen waging a door to door battle for nearly a dozen laps as they fought for the lead. Rost went on for the win followed by Petersen, last week’s winner Jerod Weston, and Jon Plowman in fourth. Plowman was forced to race a borrowed car in the feature after a crash in his heat race sidelined his car. Starting in the back of the pack he made his way to fourth and locked in his first ACS class championship with an insurmountable lead with one week to go. Josh Cooper finished fifth in the feature.

Pro-stock Corning’s Joe Zadina got his first win of the 2013 season becoming the seventh different winner in 14 nights in what is undeniably the most competitive class at the speedway. Zadina started eighth in the field of fourteen and was chased to the front by Brad Derry

Schaffer suffered a flat tire that sent him to the pits for a quick tire change. On track it was Brian Foote and Jared Stiens side by side battling for the lead. Foote took the lead on lap 11 but Stiens charged to the lead in turns one and two on the white flag lap. Going into turn three for the final time Stiens went a bit too hard looping his car and relinquishing the win to Foote. John Davis inherited second followed by Jesse Dennis, Jeff Wiggins, and Kevin Parman. With one week left Dennis carries a scant three point lead over Foote as they battle for the championship. A win by either driver locks up the title, otherwise Foote would have to finish two positions ahead of Dennis to steal the crown.

one more lap to get to the lead and the high groove. Wyman stretched his lead putting all but the top five in the race a lap down. Trent Jackson, Chris Spieker, Paul Glendenning and Jason O’Brien finished second through fifth. The win closed the point margin between Wyman and class leader Jason O’Brien to just one point with one week left. Eight-time track champion Chris Spieker is just 17 points behind the leader and still has a shot at the crown should bad luck befall Wyman and O’Brien. Obviously, the late model feature race on Sept. 7 will be the biggest race of the year for all these drivers.

yards and two touchdowns, while also racking up 117 yards and two touchdowns on the ground on eight carries. He added a 50-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. “We wanted to throw it more than we did, but Nodaway Valley was really taking away that part of our game, and our perimeter game,” Lambert said. “They really forced us to run it between the tackles.” Facing a team as physical and deep as Mount Ayr is proved to be a daunting task for a Nodaway Valley team low on numbers to begin with and playing shorthanded for Friday’s game. The Wolverines feature inexperience at several positions. “The first play of the game, the kickoff, our starting offensive tackle (Colton Garside) went down and he didn’t play all game,” Nodaway Valley head coach Steve Shantz said. “Give it to Mount Ayr, they’ve got one heck of a ball club. We did some good things, we also struggled, too. The one great thing was, I thought we fought all the way to the end.” Sophomore quarterback Jackson Lamb finished the game 6-of-19 passing for 69 yards and led the team in rushing with 22 yards on five carries. “He did a great job,” Shantz said about Lamb.

and after several minutes he was able to sit up after regaining consciousness. He was taken for medical observation immediately. Frain describes the play. “I read my guard,” said the Panther senior. “When my guard pulls, I’m the contain blitzer for the pass rush. I was in a full sprint. My right forehead and shoulder hit right under his chin.” There was no penalty called on the play.

Adam Baker After playing guard last year, 5-11, 185-pound senior A d a m Baker returned to the backfield for his senior season. Baker

Nodaway Valley senior TJ Bower (14) looks for running room on a kickoff return during the first quarter of Mount Ayr’s 43-0 win over the Wolverines Friday.

“He’s a real competitor. We know he’s going to do some good things. We also know we have to take the good with the bad. I was really impressed with his first game out there as a sophomore.” Senior TJ Bower, out for football for the first time, was Lamb’s leading receiver with three catches for 36 yards. Zach Plymesser added 29 yards on two receptions. Nodaway Valley mounted drives on several occasions, but couldn’t come away with any points. “I think there’s some things we can take out of there as a success,” Shantz said. “We’re going to take

this week and make sure we really pride ourselves on finishing out. We did a lot of good things out there against a good team.” Mount Ayr hosts Bedford on Friday, while Nodaway Valley travels to Griswold.

After 18 carries for a net 159 yards (8.8 per carry), it appears to be a successful switch. “That was fun,” Baker said. “I love it. The linemen opened the holes, and Trevor got up there and knocked those linebackers out of the way.” Also toiling on the defensive line on a 95-degree night, Baker got few breaks. “It was a little tiring,” Baker said, “but you just have to fight through it. We’ve been practicing in it for the past three weeks. You just kind of get used to it.”

Brandon Phipps Last year, when senior Luke Neitzel suffered a hand injury prior to the final regular-season game, Brandon Phipps was pressed into starting quarterback duty.

Friday was his debut as the clear No. 1 starter behind center, and the senior had a good night. He was 8-for-12 passing for 102 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. “They protected me, my jersey is clean,” Phipps said, referring to the Panther offensive linemen. “I really didn’t get hit that Phipps much at all. Baker ran like a man tonight. I love passing, but if we can run the ball like that, it just opens up playaction opportunities.” The only interception, in the Chariton end zone to end a Panther scoring threat early in the second quarter, actually led to a Spring 201

Phipps said. “So me and coach Frain said, we will run that slant-and-go. They’re going to jump it and go over the top of it. We made them pay for it.” Bryce Briley ran the slant route, then cut upfield and was wide open for a 34-yard scoring play as the Panthers pulled within 7-6. Phipps followed with TD connections to Alex Nielsen and Conner Pals to make it a 19-7 Panther advantage. “Coach Frain saw the safety flying up, so we ran play action and Pals got wide open with the power flow,” said Phipps, who appeared to be running right, then stopped and fired to an open Pals in the end zone. “We read the end. I either run it, or throw it.”

ohn and Lynne Schlaht of Creston stand sideby-side at Graceland Cemetery nearly one decade ago. It is morning. The grass below their feet is freshly cut, a little wet, and in the stillness of the cemetery the most recognizeable sounds are American flags flapping in the wind. It’s Memorial Day. Like past years, the Schlahts are attending the Memorial Day program at Graceland Cemetery. A small group of people gather with them. The group says the Pledge of Allegiance together and listens to the keynote speaker. “We’ve always gone out to the cemetery on Memorial Day,” Lynne said. “We’re both retired now, but I was a

librarian and John is a longtime social studies teacher in Creston, so we’re both fascinated with history — especially American history — and cemeteries have so many life stories.” A trumpeter playing taps concluded the program at Graceland Cemetery. The group in attendance scattered in different directions to visit loved ones. “After the program, we always wander around the cemetery,” John said. “We don’t have any family in Graceland Cemetery, but we do have friends. As we wandered around, that particular year we began noticing many veterans didn’t have flowers on their graves.” Lynne recalls the feeling that gave them both. “It was really sad to see nothing on their graves,” she

said. “They probably don’t have any family that live in the Creston area anymore.” So, from that day forward, the Schlahts decided to honor at least some of those veterans each year by placing flowers next to their grave. “We just thought it would be a nice gesture to honor and thank them on Memorial Day,” John said. “All of them sacrificed something for this country. ... After we placed flowers the first year, we wanted and felt like we needed to do it again the next year.” So, that’s what they’ve done. Each year Lynne finds enough red, white and blue artificial flowers to make 35 to 40 bouquets. She finds the Please see SCHLAHTS, Page 2

DAYTON (MCT) — Investigators believe they found the blood of a missing teenager on the body of her kidnapper, on his truck and at a northern Iowa hog confinement facility where he took two girls Monday afternoon, officials said Thursday. Kathlynn Shepard, 15, of Dayton, was still missing Thursday evening after she and a friend were abducted Monday by Michael J. Klunder, a registered sex offender described by a retired police chief as a “pure sociopath.” Officials confirmed Thursday that Klunder, who was found dead around 8 p.m. Monday, had hanged himself. Blood was found on Klunder’s body, on the tailgate of his Toyota Tundra pickup and on two buildings at a hog confinement facility where Klunder worked, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Bill Kietzman said at a news conference Thursday afternoon. The blood had not yet been tested to determine if it is Kathlynn’s, he said. “We’re going to make a logical assumption that it is her blood,” Kietzman said. “There’s no reason to think it’s anyone else’s.” The search for Kathlynn will continue Friday, but each day that passes leaves less

John and Lynne Schlaht of Creston pose next to the headstone of Earl J. Hoar — a former corporal in the U.S. Army and veteran of World War I. For the past 10 years, the Schlahts have walked through Graceland Cemetery on Memorial Day and placed a bouquet of red, white and blue flowers on veteran’s graves that don’t have any flowers at all.

Learning center proposed for southwest Iowa Creston area leaders in the areas of education and economic development met Tuesday to discuss the viability for establishing a learning center in Southwest Iowa. The learning center would provide diagnostic and tutoring services to students with learning differences and disabilities and offer resources to families impacted by learning disabilities such as dyslexia, discalculia, dysgraphia, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and related issues. The purpose of the proposed learning center, which would work in partnership with local school districts, is to ease the logistical and financial burden of accessing necessary resources to improve the learning experience for students with learning differences. The proposed site has yet to be determined, but it would most likely be established in Creston. The proposed learning center will be based on the success of other similar nonprofit learning centers. Suzanne Johnston, who is an employee of Iowa State University and been involved with the planning from the start, said she has spent “hours and hours learning” about working memory issues, auditory delays and learning disabilities in an effort to help her own daughter. Johnston said, after families pay for gas, $250 in diagnostic fees and $50 per session,
