Coach Sloth scores new fans after visiting O-M By JAKE WADDINGHAM

CNA associate editor jwaddingham@crestonnews.com

ORIENT — Sammy the Sloth may have had a slow start to his career in sports in “Sammy Sloth Sports Superstar,” but the book’s author, Ryan Sloth, quickly became a new favorite among elementary students at Orient-Macksburg Monday. “I thought the kids enjoyed hearing from him, knowing that he had a local connection with his kids going to Nodaway Valley,” Orient-Macksburg Principal Teresa Thompson said. Sloth — a former Iowa State University and Iowa Barnstormers

football player — released his first book with Sammy the Sloth about six years ago. In addition to his writing success, Sloth has coached at ISU and for the Iowa Barnstormers and played as a football player in the movies “We are Marshall,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Amazing Spiderman.” “My first three books have a little message to each one for the kids,” Sloth said. In “Sammy Sloth Sports Superstar,” Sammy tries to find a sport that he can excel at, but most of the sports are too fast paced for a sloth. After failing to make the basketball, baseball and football teams, Sammy’s persistence pays off when he finally makes the golf team.

“When I read the stories I have certain voices that I do for the characters,” Sloth said. Sammy Sloth is the main character in Sloth’s next two books. Sammy learns about confidence while playing in a big tournament and has to develop patience while waiting to hook a big fishing on his first outdoor adventure. “The kids got excited with him being a former Iowa State and Iowa Barnstormers football player,” Thompson said. “They enjoyed the sports and jungle theme of his books.” Sloth said he always gets a kick CNA photo by JAKE WADDINGHAM

NWS explores tornado possibility in Ottumwa

Clearfield District closing in on the last day of school

OTTUMWA (MCT) — Tornado or not, the Wapello County area got slammed. “We’ve been pretty lucky compared to what other people have lost,” said Joyce Smith of rural Ottumwa. “We had a whirlwind come through, it took our grain bin, a 20,000-bushel grain bin, blew it down the hill.” Ottumwa emergency personnel, including Chief Tony Miller from the Ottumwa Fire Department, were out to take photographs of damage on Mary Street and at the Smith’s home off Bluegrass Road. The bin was empty at the time. An equipment storage building was not. “Our machine shed had the ... side torn out. It contained an auger, a tractor and a truck.” “It’s a mess now,” Smith said. But as for what specifically caused the damage, Ottumwans may not know until Tuesday: Was Wapello County hit by a tornado? The National Weather Service storm damage survey team was going to be in Ottumwa Monday morning, said Miller. He would be available to show them around. But by midafternoon, the team was just leaving Centerville for Ottumwa and would likely stop to investigate damage along the way. Everything was fine on the 300-acre Smith property when they left for town Sunday afternoon. As winds picked up, Smith said, local merchants seemed more concerned about public safety than product sales. “We were in Wal-Mart when it happened. They locked us all in; they wouldn’t let us out.” The Smiths, Joyce and Eudene, found their damaged property when they got back home from shopping in the late afternoon. “Our [neighbor] said it sounded like a freight train came through. He only lost one tree.”

Clearfield Community School endures a spring rain during its final month as a school before summer begins and the city of Clearfield takes ownership of the building. Clearfield School Board passed a motion in July 2013 to dissolve the district, and citizens voted to continue with the dissolution September 2013.

Staff sentiments

CNA staff reporter bpoolman@crestonnews.com

T

he rain splattered the windows and formed puddles in the gravel parking lot at Clearfield Elementary School during a Creston News Advertiser interview with Clearfield staff Wednesday. Part of the interview focused on the dissolution of the school district, while part focused on positive moments the staff remembered. “If we hadn’t worked as a team, we wouldn’t still be open now,” said Pam Nickell, school secretary. “The teachers buy their own stuff so the school wouldn’t have to. They made due with what they had. If they hadn’t, we would have been closed a long time ago.” Clearfield District has been in the process of dissolving since March 2013. During a July 2013 hearing, Clearfield School Board passed the dissolution during a meeting the day after the hearing. “I credit the management: the school board and the people who managed the building; because they managed the money really well,” said Jackie Hopkins, Clearfield principal and guidance coun-

Clearfield staff leave sentiments during their last month at Clearfield Community School. Lyndell Davis, teacher’s aide: “I have worked at Clearfield School for the past two years. With the approaching closing of our little school, it seems the school has come full circle in more ways than one. The children here inspire the teachers, and the teachers inspire the children day after day. It has been a safe, welcoming and learning environment that brings out the best in everyone. The staff and the children are all wonderful. It’s been a great experience.” Pam Nickell, secretary: “I think we get along well. We’ve worked together so long we can fill in for each other. I mean, we’ve helped serve food, we’ve swept floors. I mean, if somebody is gone, somebody else helps fill those gaps. ... We did good. We served our purpose, and I think the kids have learned, grown and they still like us.” selor. “We simply ran out of students, so we ran out of spending authority. And, at the state level, when you run out of spending authority, you’re done.” Clearfield District will close June 30. Positivity and sadness One thing Clearfield staff agreed on was how much of a family they were to each other. “It’s been wonderful. It’s more like a family and I’ve really enjoyed it,” said Jackie Hopkins, principal and guidance counselor. “I worked in a large met-

ropolitan school system around Des Moines for 35 years so I’m very familiar with school as usual and this has just been delightful.” Hopkins started working at Clearfield five and a-half years ago as a guidance counselor before taking on additional responsibilties as principal. She has been principal for five years. “It’s too busy right now to think

Deaths Rodney ‘Rod’ Cloud Mount Ayr

Rodney “Rod” Cloud, 74, of Mount Ayr died April 27, 2014, at Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Cloud Ayr. Funeral services will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday, May 1, at WatsonArmstrong Funeral Home, 205 W. Monroe St., Mount Ayr. The Rev. Ed Shields will officiate. Burial will be in Rose Hill Cemetery in Mount Ayr. Open visitation will be noon to 8 p.m. Wednesday with family present 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home. Memorials may be given in Rod’s name. Online condolences may be left at www.watsonarmstrong.com. Rodney “Rod” Harold Cloud, son of Mildred Irene (Stranberg) and Harold Ralph Cloud, was born June 25, 1939, in Galva. Rod was educated in Dayton and Storm Lake schools. Rod served in the National Guard from 1958 to 1964. Rod moved to Mount Ayr

in 1965, while working for Evans Construction putting in direct dial telephone lines. On July 29, 1967, Rod married Lois Marie Cannon in Mount Ayr. Rod worked for the telephone company in Mount Ayr for 28 years, until retiring. After retirement, Rod worked as a telephone line locator and drove a chemical truck for Helena Chemical Company. Rod was a member of American Legion Post No. 172 of Mount Ayr. Rod is survived by his wife Lois Cloud of Mount Ayr; daughter Rhonda (Khaled) Abdalla and children, Ibrahim, Moustafa, Samia and Layla Abdalla, all of West Des Moines; sons, Kenny Cloud of West Des Moines and Ryan Cloud (significant other Clara White) and children, Trenton Cloud and Darrin White, all of Des Moines; brothers, Gary (Julie) Cloud of Ankeny and Douglas (Leida) Cloud of Topeka, Kan.; brother-in-law Marvin (Verlene) Cannon of Bondurant; five grandchildren and one step-grandson. Rod was preceded in death by his parents, father in-law Wilbur Cannon and motherin-law Marie Cannon-Garner.

out of watching the students’ reaction when he reveals the big fish Sammy Sloth is able to reel in. “My fourth book I actually wrote with my son, Tucker, who is in second grade at Nodaway Valley,” Sloth said. “It was fun working with him and seeing the whole book come alive.” Sloth has visited more than 500 schools and 10 states promoting his children’s books. Most of the schools he visits are in Iowa. Sloth said he has several more books in the works, including a book he is going to co-author with his daughter. Thompson said teachers are planning to use the event as a motivation for the students to start their own writing projects.

about (the dissolution). I mean, we just need to do what we need to do right now. And, we’re not trying to focus on like it’s finished, but what we’ve accomplished,” said Nickell. “We are proud of what we’ve done and who we are and we don’t need to focus on the sad part of it, but that we can be proud.” Clearfield staff is hosting an open reunion to anyone who has attended or worked at Clearfield District. The event is May 23 at Clearfield School, starting at 5 p.m. There will be food, games, music and a bonfire. “It’s a death, so there’s been different opinions and a lot of strong feelings, and I think that’s normal. I think of this as getting together and remembering the good times and feeling sad that it’s closing,” Hopkins said. “But, when you have a death, the more you talk about it, the more you commune with other people, the better you get through it. This won’t be morbid, but it is an important part of letting go.” On the other end of the spectrum, tears were shed over the closing of the school. “I’m sad. I mean it is sad. We just finished a yearbook that was more a commemorative type yearbook, so I got to read and hear what the building has been like. It has a really proud history,” Hopkins said. “The district was started in 1882, and the town was started in 1882, so education was very important to Clearfield. And, they’ve had a very proud history, and have stayed open far longer than people thought they would.” Afterward Clearfield Elementary School building was purchased by the city of Clearfield for $1. Part of the building will be turned into a community center. “I’m thrilled. I’m happy because we were afraid they wouldn’t be able to come up with plans, and

the building was going to be deserted,” Hopkins said. “And, this building is such a nice building that it would be a shame, so I’m thrilled.” There is also the possibility of the other part of the building to be used as apartments. Items in the building, such as trophies and cheerleading outfits, will go to the local museum. Learning materials used for classes that Clearfield is in with other schools will go to those other schools. The rest of the items in Clearfield School will be sold. Dissolution Clearfield District discussed the process to dissolve during the July hearing. The process began as the money designated to the school district decreased over time. “The state gives us a spending authority. They give us the authority to spend based on the number of students that we have,” said Joe Drake, superintendent of Clearfield, Bedford and Mount Ayr school districts. “We don’t have enough students to generate enough income to keep the school open.” Clearfield School Board listened to voices from the public before making the decision to dissolve on their own terms, rather than opt for an involuntary dissolution, where the state of Iowa would take control. During a September

election, the decision to dissolve Clearfield District was passed. Students will go to Bedford, Diagonal, Lenox or

Mount Ayr, depending on where the families’ property falls on a colored map drawn up before the hearing.

More sentiments “We kind of get to feeling like a family. It kind of gets to be a family atmosphere. They (kids) watch out for each other, sometimes squabble like siblings. ... It’s kind of a sad time.” Nancy Brown kindergarten teacher —————— “When they (students) look at you and they say, ‘I get it! I did it!’ And, they’re so proud, and you’ve worked forever. It makes you proud of them that they finally actually can do it and get it. You know, I’ve worked with preschool through sixth grade. One little boy in particular, I remember, wrote his whole name and you could read. He said, ‘I did it!’ Same thing with sixth-grade math. It finally clicks and it makes all those frustrating hours rewarding. ... No matter how many hours you spent, it makes it worth it.” Jacquie Bennett teacher’s aide and clerical assistant —————— “I’ve enjoyed it very much. I’ve had a lot of different jobs in here, and I’ve enjoyed it very much. ... I like that our school has always let our children go to the nursing home and read

books to the older people. I think it’s neat that a small school would let our students go to a nursing home.” Pat Wilson teacher’s aide, assistant cook, custodian —————— “We went through a transition when reading first came in, and we were able to get a lot of new books, a lot of new materials. That was a fun time to teach, I thought. We got a lot of new resources we hadn’t been able to afford before then. We got a lot of new ideas, I think, of teaching reading, and working on different strategies. ... I think small classes has been an asset because you have so much more time to work with kids individually.” Martha Larson first- and second-grade teacher —————— “I like being around the little kids. Preschoolers like me to death. ... You get to know everybody, and it’s just like having a second family with all the preschoolers. I mean, I’m going to miss that part.” Dennis Brown bus driver and maintenance

straight-line winds accounted for most damage. The experts say similar roaring sounds can be created by other events: a continuous rumble of thunder, the pounding of hail and severe thunderstorm winds. National Weather Service meteorologists were conducting a storm survey over southeast Iowa Monday after what they called “severe thunderstorms” produced damage Sunday afternoon. The NWS survey team blamed straight-line winds for damage to a medical building in Oskaloosa, where 70-80 mph gusts tore a deck off. The preliminary survey also indi-

cated that the building was not built to avoid wind damage, and that allowed the wind to peel the roof off. The Lovilia area had reported a tornado. However, the damage survey team looks for evidence of tornadoes, like metal twisted around a tree. Instead, they found evidence of straight-line winds. Yet those powerful winds were enough to damage mobile homes and tear down a Lovilia outbuilding. —————— ©2014 the Ottumwa Courier (Ottumwa, Iowa) Distributed by MCT Information Services

OPINION

How long will these front teeth last? I busted out my front teeth — for the first time — when I was 2 years old running through my grandmother’s house with a dowel rod. I tripped on their fluffy, multicolored colored carpet and out came those baby teeth. I lost my adult front teeth in the annual Creston High School preseason football “towel” game played under the bright lights of Townline Field (now Panther Field). I remember this event clearly. I was about a 105-pound freshman wide receiver running a slant pattern when I collided with defensive back Matt Buck and linebacker Kevin Mellinger on a pass thrown my direction.

In Transit Kyle Wilson managing editor

I’m not completely sure how my teeth were dislodged, but best guess is my helmet fit too loosely and the mouthpiece — attached to my facemask — was ripped out during the collision. Dentist Dr. Dave Buck was there watching his son. About 60 football players from all levels and various member of the community spent about 15 minutes looking for my teeth on the field that evening because Dr. Buck said

my lost teeth could be put back in my mouth and may take. We never found those teeth. They’re still on the field somewhere south of the 50-yard-line buried in the dirt, probably soaking up fertilizer. For a couple years after that, I wore a “flipper” partial plate that had a single front tooth attached, but contact sports — especially basketball — were hard on that piece of equipment. The flipper bit the dust when I took an elbow to the face in a basketball game against Atlantic. Dr. Buck then sculpted a tooth for me my junior year of high school with the help of a blue light. I lost at least two of those sculpted

teeth during high school and into college. But, earlier this year, I became Dr. Michael Buck’s problem. We made plans to fix my teeth more permanently now that I’m a fully grown and spend less time on the basketball court. I’ll get a permanent bridge sometime this summer. How long do you think I can keep these front teeth? Any bets? In other news: • Our 16-page Crestubilee prom tab with about 80 photos of CHS prom is in today’s paper.

Silicon Valley is a new series on HBO HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody? Georgia’s governor signed a law Tuesday allowing Georgia residents to carry concealed handguns into bars. The law paid dividends immediately. The next day, three linemen, two linebackers and two wide receivers for the Dallas Cowboys defected to the Atlanta Falcons. Dallas Cowboy owners Jerry Jones said Friday he’d draft Johnny Manziel if he could. NFL team owners see themselves in the kid. At the NFL combine, Johnny scored a highest-ever thirty-two on the Wonderlic test, then he offered to sell the answers to the test for a nominal fee. Silicon Valley is a new series on HBO about six programmers who live together in Silicon Valley and try to strike it rich. Viewership has fallen steeply in three weeks.

Topical humor Argus Hamilton

Tuesday. The girls were fined if their hair wasn’t perfect and they had to pass a jiggle test when they bounce up and down. The team owner figured that what worked for Fox News might work for the Buffalo Bills. Northwestern football players voted on whether to unionize Friday but the results of the vote must be kept secret until an appeal is heard. It’s divisive. Many of the Northwestern players said they were going to fight for the union, which only stirred up war talk at Alabama. Vladimir Putin last week told a Russian TV audience he thinks President Obama would rescue him if he were drowning and Obama responded Friday saying he’d indeed rescue Putin if he were drowning. The world has just one question. Do you guys want to fight or kiss?

Make Lincoln School an art center From Larry Hicks Creston

Lynne Schlaht brought up an interesting concept, except she has it backwards. Leave the library where it is, and make the old Lincoln School an art center. Lincoln has multiple rooms for art displays, artists to give and take instruction, as well as work on artistic projects,

a stage for performing arts, room for administration, space for the genealogy society and even room for coffee and socializing. If moving the library is such a great idea, why do we not notice any significant rise on the fundraising thermometer on West Adams Street? By the time the projected funds are raised, if ever, the cost of renovating the building will be

markedly increased. Also, if moving is such a great idea, why is the library board trying to slide it past the public without a public vote? Leave the library where it is, and redirect your goal of making Lincoln School an art center, keeping in mind those who will need to financially support it in the future, as I suspect it will not be self-sustaining.

Response to Evonne Jennett From Jane Anchustegui Creston

You say your hog confinement is not a factory because you “produce and interact with living, breathing animals,” but yet these animals never experience the sun, fresh air or ever have their feet on the earth. They will spend their entire lives living above their own waste in close quarters breathing putrid air. This is not farming. This is animal cruelty. You don’t mention how your neighbors have been affected. You may have those “extra dollars to keep the businesses thriving,” but tell me how your fellow farmer neighbors feel or how they benefited from your hog confinement? Can they still sleep with their windows open or enjoy the outdoors on their own property? My neighbor is on a respirator and has COPD, and there are many days the air quality is so bad from the hog confinement (less than a mile down the road) that he cannot go outside.

I agree with you that land prices keep going up, but find us one example of someone building or buying a home next to a hog confinement. You say our water quality is improving, but fail to explain how millions of gallons of pig manure from over 8,500 hog confinements (over 21 million head) won’t affect our water quality or the fact that the DNR has reported 630 impaired waterways. It will be all of us taxpayers who will pay for cleaning up our water. You say you have been told by a business owner that “her business was supported by the farmers, not the town.” It takes EVERYONE to support our rural communities from teachers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, shopkeepers, policemen, waitresses, cooks, county employees and countless others to make a place worth living in. We can attract these people to live in our small towns by offering a quality of life — clean air and clean water. Will these people want to invest in an acreage outside of town knowing their investment could be de-

stroyed by a hog confinement going in down the road? You say you have a master matrix that makes you jump through “hoops,” but none of the criteria deals with how the site will impact your next door neighbors. Yes, I know each building needs to be so far from the nearest house, but bad smells and pollution do not obey distance. The DNR has a staff of less than 20 to enforce this matrix to these 8,500 confinements. A DNR representative said this equates to about one visit to a site every five years. The DNR does not know about many violations (manure spills) unless they are reported by citizens. ICCI has given the citizens of Iowa a platform to voice our concerns. I applaud those who are speaking up for the quality of life for ALL Iowans. Our county supervisors and state representatives must represent more than a few select owners and corporations who benefit financially from factory farms.

Opens July 25. —‘‘Think Like A Man Too’’ The various couples from the first ensemble comedy reunite for a big Las Vegas wedding. Then the bachelor and bachelorette parties spiral out of control, ending with most of the cast in jail. Sounds like a matrimonial “Hangover” movie: engagement ring, wedding ring, suffering.

A virtually safe credit card Dear Heloise: My creditcard bank offers its customers a “VIRTUAL CREDIT CARD” (VCC) for use in online purchases (for now, only online purchases are included in the setup). It virtually eliminates anyone hacking onto an online site and getting your credit-card information. It’s so simple. You can download the VCC software from the bank’s secure site right onto your computer. Then, when you go online to make a purchase, you can generate a VCC for that purchase only. The bank issues you a VCC for that specific purchase, and even if the VCC is hacked, it cannot be used for anything else. Your readers would be wise to check with their bank to see if this service is offered. — Len D. in New Hampshire A safe way to shop online. When I first started shopping on the Web, I got a separate credit card with a different variation of my name. I use this card ONLY for online shopping, so if something does happen, it is not tied to any other credit cards. — Heloise DETANGLED CHAIN Dear Heloise: After taking a trip with my daughter,

Hints from Heloise I pulled my jewelry from the bag it was in and found a tangled mess of chains. If I pulled, the chains became more tightly knotted. I had no way of separating them, until my daughter said I should try making the chains slide more easily by using baby powder. After a little loosening and pulling the chains apart with a pin, they were good as new! — Danielle in Utah GIFT GIVING Dear Heloise: This is my hint for gift giving for any occasion: I enclose the birthday, wedding card, etc., in the gift bag or wrapped box. On the back of the card, I list the gift, or gifts, and place my address label. This way, the card will not get lost, and the celebrant will have a record of the gift and an address for a thankyou card. — Carole in New Jersey EXTRA TOMATOES Dear Heloise: Don’t buy a lot of tomato plants at the beginning of the season.

They will make late tomatoes. — J.C. in Kentucky CORNY CARDS Dear Readers: Is your favorite deck of cards getting grimy?

Torn ligament NEW YORK — The Washington Nationals quest to get back to the postseason took a big hit on Monday as outfielder Bryce Harper will be out until at least early July with a torn ligament in his left thumb. Harper will undergo surgery to repair the ulnar callateral ligament on Tuesday. The injury occurred when he slid head-first into third base during the team’s win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Spurs win DALLAS — Manu Ginobili scored 23 points, Boris Diaw hit a go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute and theSan Antonio Spurs held off a second-half surge by Dallas to beat the Mavericks 93-89 on Monday night, pulling even in their firstround playoff series. The Spurs regained the home-court advantage by getting a split of two games in Dallas, matching what the eighth-seeded Mavericks did in San Antonio. The Spurs led by 20 points in the third quarter before the Mavericks pulled even midway through the fourth quarter of Game 4. The score was still tied when Diaw hit from long range over Dirk Nowitzki at the top of the key for a 90-87 lead. Monta Ellis led Dallas with 20 points but missed two potential tying shots after Diaw’s basket. Game 5 is Wednesday night in San Antonio.

Heat sweeps CHARLOTTE, N.C. — LeBron James scored 19 of his game-high 31 points after sustaining a thigh bruise early in the third quarter, helping the Miami Heat earn a first-round sweep of the Charlotte Bobcats with a 109-98 victory Monday night. He finished Game 4 10 of 19 from the field and had nine assists. The two-time defending NBA champions will await the winner of the Brooklyn-Toronto series, which is tied 2-2.

Panther golfers earn decisive victories over Glenwood By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

The Creston/OrientMacksburg golf teams picked up a sweep of Glenwood on Monday, with the boys posting a 158-188 win at home, while the girls won 216-274 at Glenwood. The Panther boys displayed their depth in the win, as the Creston/O-M JV team also posted a lower team score than Glenwood’s varsity with a score of 175. Senior Hunter Sickels won medalist honors for the Panthers, shooting a round of 1-under par 35. Sickels recorded a bogey on the par 3 second hole and recorded pars the rest of the way out until the ninth Sickels and final hole, where he recorded an eagle. “Hunter kept missing his birdie putts,” Creston/OM head coach Jan Lesan said. “On nine, he hit from 100 yards out, backspin and into the cup. What a finish!” Carson Whittington finished as runner-up after shooting a round of 1-over par 37. Whittington shot par on every hole except for the par-3 sixth hole. Sam Hartsock and Coleton Hoepker rounded out the team scoring for the Panthers, both shooting rounds of 43. Maxx Wal-

Girls The Panther girls also posted a decisive victory over Glenwood on Mon-

day, outshooting the Rams 216-274. Senior Sarah Waigand won medalist honors after carding a round of 51. Hannah Hagle, for the Waigand second straight meet, finished as runner-up with a score of

Shelby Palser recorded a round of 54, while Camryn Somers and Madison Hance each shot scores of 59, putting five Panthers in front of Glenwood’s top score. “Back to back wins for the girls is something we haven’t been able to say for some time here in Creston,” assistant coach Kristopher “Kritter” Hayes said. “The girls played

pretty consistent golf and are really having fun playing the game. We are still seeing the occasional eight or nine on the scorecards, and the girls want to eliminate those.” Glenwood was led by Bailey Mitchell’s score of 59.

Spartans rise to sixth with home sweep Panthers start big week By LARRY PETERSON

CNA sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

Southwestern’s softball team picked up an important conference sweep of last-place Iowa Lakes here Monday, 9-7 and 13-3 in six innings. The games were originally postponed Sunday in Iowa Lakes, and due to wet grounds, moved to SWCC’s field Monday. Ironically, it was the Spartans’ first doubleheader sweep since the March 30 matchup with the Lakers on the same field. The wins vault the Spartans past North Iowa Area Community College, after NIACC’s two walk-off wins Saturday had pushed the Trojans into sixth place

ahead of Southwestern. Now, Southwestern enters regional tournament play Thursday against third-place Iowa Central, a team the Spartans played two competitive games against at home last Thursday. “We finish sixth, so we open with Iowa Central and not DMACC, which makes me feel better about the whole thing,” said Southwestern coach Lindsay Stumpff. Southwestern ends the regular season at 8-20 in the conference and 17-26 overall. NIACC is seventh at 6-18 and 14-20 overall, and faces second-place DMACC in the regional opener. League champion Kirkwood opens against eighth-

place Iowa Lakes, which ends at 3-25 and 15-29. Iowa Central (19-7, 4013) and fourth-place Marshalltown (16-10, 30-16) make up their final doubleheader today after it was rained out Monday. Sam Strand picked up the victory and Emma Ferin hit a home run and double with two RBIs in the 9-7 opening game Monday. Danielle McIntosh, the game two winner, had two doubles and a single in the opener. Strand clubbed two doubles, Brooke Wolf had a double and single and Peyton Russell and Molly Schimp each collected two singles. Please see SPARTANS, page 8A

Boycott? OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson had a clear message as to how fans should react to the racist comments allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling: Boycott Game 5 at the Staples Center. “If it was me, I wouldn’t come to the game,” Jackson said Monday. “I believe as fans, the loudest statement they could make as far as fans is to not show up to the game.” Jackson was quick to point out that his advice doesn’t apply just to Clippers supporters but to Warriors fans as well. “As an African-American man that’s a fan of the game of basketball and knows its history and knows what’s right and what’s wrong, I would not come to the game tomorrow, whether I was a Clipper fan or a Warrior fan,” he said.

with 3-1 victory By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

ATLANTIC — The Creston boys soccer team started off a busy week with a 3-1 victory over Atlantic Monday night. The Panthers improved to 2-1 in the Hawkeye 10 and 8-1 overall, possibly headed toward its first state ranking of the season on Wednesday’s release by the Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association. Atlantic fell to 1-2 in league play and 4-6 overall. The victory started off an important three-match road swing for the Panthers in their quest to contend for a Hawkeye 10 championship. Creston travels to Lewis Central (1-1, 4-4) today before Thursday’s key contest

at league-leader Glenwood (3-0, 5-2). “Lewis Central graduated a big senior class last year, but we have four guys gone at state FFA, so we can’t take anything for granted,” said Creston coach Jesus Rodriguez. “I told the guys, if we beat Lewis Central, we’re pretty much playing for a shot at the conference against Glenwood.” Tonight’s contest is the 6:30 p.m. nightcap after the girls teams face off at 4:30. Gavin Leith, Kyle Jennett, Jake Miller and Zack Peppmeier have a conflict today with State FFA obilgations. Rodriguez said Miller and Jennett traveled back from the convention to Please see SOCCER, page 8A

Longabaugh had two doubles, a single and three runs batted in during the 13-3 victory to cap the doubleheader sweep.

GLENWOOD — The Creston/O-M girls tennis team is in a virtual tie for first place in the Hawkeye 10 dual standings after Monday’s 6-3 win at Glenwood. The Panthers won four of six singles matches and two of the three doubles contests to improve to 3-0 in the Hawkeye 10 and overall. Glenwood fell to 2-3 and 2-3. Red Oak is atop the league at 4-0, with a 5-0 overall mark. The boys dual at Creston was cancelled because of a shortage of players available for Creston/O-M with attendance at State FFA activities. The same convention left the Panther girls team slightly shorthanded. “Tonight was a big win for us at Glenwood,” Cres-

ton assistant coach Amanda Plymale said. “We were short a few girls due to conflicts, so we had some JV girls playing varsity for us tonight. Audrey Fyock held serve tonight to seal the win at No. 1. Jenna Taylor made a comeback to win 9-7. Fyock Our doubles teams always look strong and we can now rely on them to seal up the meet victory.” The girls travel to Shenandoah Thursday, while the boys teams will meet at the SWCC courts.

Iowa Lakes had seven hits in the second game against McIntosh, who allowed all three Laker runs in the fourth while tossing five shutout frames. “Danielle has gotten more control of her pitches and is building her confidence,” Stumpff said. Holding a 10-3 lead in the top of the sixth, Schimp powered a slap double to the center field fence after Strand drew a walk. Jordan Williamson followed with a two-run single and Amber Longabaugh of Corning drove in her third run of the game with a hit to make it region field.

After a leadoff single, McIntosh, the former Clarke and Murray pitcher, got three straight outs on a strikeout and two groundouts. McIntosh helped her c a u s e with four RBIs on a double and single. Hannah Murphy, Williamson and McIntosh Ferin each finished with three hits, including a double. Schimp doubled and singled. Longabaugh finished with two doubles and a single in a rare appearance in the line-

up as the designated player. “Amber is a sophomore who didn’t play last year, and I wanted to give her a shot in this game,” Stumpff said. “She came through.” Last week, Southwestern was tied 4-4 late in the game against Iowa Central before losing 9-6 in the nightcap. “We lost that game with our defense,” Stumpff said. “If we can play more consistent in the field, we should be able to compete. We’ll probably warm up both Sam Strand and Danielle McIntosh and make a game-time decision.” The tournament is double-elimination at Harlan Rogers Sports Complex in Fort Dodge.

The defense also gained the return of junior starter Tayler Pettit Monday, after missing several matches with an aggravated knee injury. “We had Tayler back in the middle for us on defense,” Rodriguez said. “We also had Trevor Fraink and Kaleb Cook back there, with Brant Hudson on the right side and Chase Shiltz on the left side. They did a nice job, and Alex Nielsen had a couple of nice saves. They only scored on a PK after a questionable call when Frain and their forward both fell into Alex.” Creston showed superior possession skills from the start, getting an early goal from Conner Pals. “Conner took a couple defenders and shot it outside the 18,” Rodriguez said. “It was a pretty hard shot. The keeper had no chance.” Then before the end of

the half came the call that led to Atlantic’s penalty kick goal byMatt Smith that put it at 1-1 going into intermission. “At half, I told them you guys are better than this team, and you have the wind in the second half,” Rodriguez said. “Our center mids (Levi Eblen and Ben Irr) did more combination stuff and got our forwards into more runs.” They worked a center through-ball to forward THE IOWAHaines DISTRICTearly COURT in McClain UNION COUNTY the IN secTHE MATTER OF OF o Darline n THE dF.

At the end it was Hardisty, Derry, Miller, Joe Zadina and Kevin Sharp. Corning’s Jesse Dennis’ third place finish on opening night assured him a starting position back in row five or six for week number two. Starting 10th, Dennis had his work cut out for him but he used the high side of the track to perfection taking the lead on lap number seven and holding on to a winning margin of just over one second ahead of Blain Petersen. Petersen, doing double duty in both a modified and a b-mod had a strong night with a second and a third place finish. Stanton’s Jeff James finished third with early race leader Jeff Wiggins in fourth and Brian Foote fifth.

CORNING — It’s been a number of years since both scheduled April race dates have happened without nature interfering, but 2014 is off to a strong start as five new faces made their way to Miller Lite Victory Lane on Saturday.

Hobby stocks Seventeen Chat Mobility hobby stockers made the call for their 15-lap main event, but it was a short night for Bedford’s Luke Ramsey when his drive shaft came off the car before he could even reach turn number one. On the restart it was polesitter Jeremy Ribbey off to the front, but Waukee’s Matt McAtee needed only two laps to charge from tenth to first. Three more caution flags slowed the race and by the checkers Clarinda’s Andy Davison was within a quarter of a second of the lead but had to settle for a second place finish after winning the prior week. Defending champ Jeremy Purdy finished third followed by Tom Myers, David Weeda, and Ribbey. With two weeks in the books just

B-mods Jon Plowman had to settle for a second place finish in his new number 17 Stalker Chevrolet b-mod last week, but there was no stopping him this week as he charged from tenth to take the win. Essex’s Blain Petersen led the first half of the race as Plowman worked his way forward. Using the bottom of the track Plowman took the lead on lap number nine and held on for the win. Creston’s Shawn Kralik came in second followed by Petersen, Darrin Hardisty, and Bret Sheppard.

There were no incidents and one lap later Lamoni’s Sterling Perkins, coming off a heat race win, charged to the lead from the outside of row one to pace the first three laps. Following a caution it was Fast Freddy Miller, a veteran racer from Avoca, who stole the lead and put a substantial margin between his 9F and the rest of the pack. Behind Miller was a war for second between two Omaha drivers, Leon Zeitner and Billy Leighton, and defending champion Jason O’Brien. Just after taking the white flag those three cars along with a lapped car, barreled into turn number one with O’Brien on the bottom and Zeitner alongside. Paint was exchanged with O’Brien emerging the victor and settling for second, Leighton in third, with Zeitner fading to fourth.

‘To the Rescue’ engineering workshop well attended Seventeen children, grades fourth through eighth, got together Saturday to learn the basics of package engineering. Haley Jones, Union County youth and outreach coordinator, hosted a workshop geared toward building and designing drop aid packages. The children had a chance to test out their own construction skills while building a tower out of only index cards and scotch tape that was at least 10-inches tall and could withstand the weight of a stuffed animal for 10 seconds. They also built, tested and rebuilt several different packages filled with pasta noodles and marbles that they

then dropped from certain heights to see what happened to the pasta. Steve Akes, Union County engineer, was the guest speaker for the afternoon, as he shared with the children the many different types of engineering. The workshop concluded with participants having the opportunity to design their own drop aid packages based on the things they had learned throughout the workshop. For more information on upcoming workshops and camps being put on by Union County Extension and ISU Extension and Outreach, contact Jones at 641-782-8426.
