Hy-Vee recalls several candy products due to possible health risk Newton store didn’t sell products By Jamee A. Pierson Newton Daily News Candy trays distributed by Hy-Vee grocery stores are be-

ing voluntarily recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination. The trays were available between Oct. 20 and Dec. 9, 2016 and distributed across the grocery chains eightstate region of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Twenty trays were recalled after potential contamination

was brought to Hy-Vee’s attention, after Palmer Candy Company announced a limited recall of certain chocolate products after it was informed by its supplier, Valley Milk Products LLC, that a milk powder ingredient used in a compound chocolate coating has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the products. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and other with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of Salmonella include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

“Hy-Vee is extremely cautious in these situations and we take every precaution necessary,” Newton Hy-Vee Store Manager Scott Pearson said. “While we did not have these candy trays in Newton, anyone who might be returning them can bring them to customer service.” RECALL | 3A

Newton woman charged for false statements of kidnapping, assault By Kayla Langmaid Newton Daily News

Jamee A. Pierson/Daily News Jasper County Health Department Administrator Becky Pryor tells the Jasper County Board of Health her concerns about the current office situation and what she would like to see for the department in the future.

New location priority for Board of Health By Jamee A. Pierson Newton Daily News

The location of the Jasper County Health Department was discussed in detail this week during the Jasper County Board of Health meeting. The board, along with JCHD Administrator Becky Pryor, went through the challenges the department is having in its current location and steps that need to take place for a possible relocation. “In February when we took over Jasper County Health Department, we knew there would be some grow-

ing pains and we know that there is some issues with this building,” Pryor said. “I just really recommend we continue to explore our options for looking at building space and knowing where we are going and what we are doing.” Pryor spoke about wants and needs for the department including a space with public restroom accessibility, a conference room, additional spaces to conduct more clinics and better handicapped accessibility among other needs. “Parking is also an issue at this building. It is hard for

parking for us and our clients because you are not allowed to park a lot of places,” Pryor said. “More than that, it is just having a good work flow.” Board chair Margot Voshell discussed the recent change with the board of supervisors following the recent election as a good time to engage the supervisors about this need in the county. “We will be working with them to come up with a solution that best meets our needs as well as needs of the HEALTH | 3A

Three months after a Grinnell man was accused of kidnapping and strangling a Newton woman at a local hotel, the victim told police her statements were false. The woman who made accusations of being kidnapped and assaulted in September, Stephanie L. Yoakum, 43, of Newton, is now facing a charge for false report of indictable offense, a serious misdemeanor. Michael A. Darrow, 38, was charged Sept. 5 after police were called at about 1:30 a.m. to the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites, 1405 W. 19th St. S. Yoakum told police on the day of the incident that Darrow held her against her will in the motel room, strangled her twice and physically restricted



her from leaving when she attempted to escape. According to a police report, Yoakum told police that Darrow said to her, “Scream one more time, and I’ll kill you.” Yoakum told police that Darrow took her cell phone and the motel room phone, according to police. Yoakum also told police she was eventually able to leave the motel room, and she ran YOAKUM | 3A

Out of state men accused of identity theft, forgery Newton Daily News An identity theft incident Wednesday led to the arrest of two out of state men who now face charges for identity theft and forgery in Newton. The victim called police at 1:04 p.m. to report their credit card had been used without permission at the Super 8 Motel located at 1635 S.12th Ave. W.

Newton police found two men, Najee D. James, 24, of Richton, Ill., and Tyler N. Wilson, 21, of Michigan City, Ind., had checked in to room 218. The men were arrested and taken to the Jasper County Jail. James and Wilson were charged with identity theft, an aggravated misdemeanor, and three counts of forgery, using a magnetic stripe re-encoder, a Class D felony.

Jasper County Democrats look back on Obama’s legacy Newton Daily News Following President Barack Obama’s farewell address on Tuesday, Newton Daily News asked Jasper County Democrats to reflect on the speech and the president’s legacy. Rep. Wes Breckenridge said Obama did an outstanding job with his farewell address by highlighting accomplishments and acknowledging things that still need to be done. “President Obama gave an impassioned speech reaching out to all Americans to stand up for what they believe in while still being respectful and accepting of one another,”

Breckenridge said. “I believe President Obama’s legacy is one of equality, where every person is treated equal and given the same opportunities to achieve their dreams.” Sen. Chaz Allen said history will determine Obama’s legacy and noted the president’s presence in Jasper County. The president toured Trinity Structural Towers in Newton in April of 2009, in addition to visiting the city during his first presidential campaign. “He was the first (sitting) President of the United States to be in Newton since I believe Truman,” Allen said. “That was exciting for our

community, for him to be here. W e ’ l l miss him from that standpoint.”

“The Obamas, not being born into wealth and privilege and connections, accomplished what they have through education and sheer hard work. It should be admired by everyone,” Brock said. “I think Obama’s calm and intelligence and boundless optimism will be missed.” Jasper County Recorder Denise Allan said Obama was an excellent president who thought things through carefully. She said the president walked into a OBAMA | 3A

In Brief

Mount Mercy fall dean’s list The following students are named to Mount Mercy University’s Fall 2016 dean’s list. Students with a semester grade point average of 3.60 or better, and who are graded (letter grade, not pass/fail) for six or more semester hours, are eligible for inclusion on the dean’s list. Those who made the list are Samantha Manatt, Nursing AP of Lynnville, Marisa Modlin, nursing of Newton, Stephanie Burkett, nursing AP of Prairie City and Kristen Van Der Wilt, nursing of Sully. Justin Jagler/Daily News Berg Middle School student Lydia Biondi stands with NCSD Board President Travis Padget to present a check of $120.45 to Ina Heidemann’s science class.

By Justin Jagler Newton Daily News The season of giving is still in full swing for Berg Middle School sixth-grader Lydia Biondi. Biondi presented the Newton Community School Board with a check for $120.45 that she helped raise for her teacher Ina Heidemann. The money will be used for Heidemann’s science class. Heidemann was unable to attend the school board meeting Monday evening. In addition to the

school board presentation, Biondi presented the check to her teacher at school. “I did the fundraiser for Mrs. Heidemann because she told my homeroom class that she has a budget for science class,” Biondi said. “I thought I’d like to help Mrs. Heidemann by giving her money to purchase items for science.” Biondi, who was joined by her mother Nicole at the school board meeting, raised the money by putting out a jar that described what the fundraiser was for.

Morningside fall dean’s list

Superintendent of Schools Bob Callaghan said Biondi is a “young lady who’s very ambitious and very thoughtful.” To make the presentation more impactful, Biondi featured an over-sized check written out to Heideman. The memo line read “science class.” Science is a subject that often requires expensive equipment, so Biondi’s donation will not go unnoticed at the school.

Morningside College Provost William C. Deeds recently announced the students who were named to the dean’s list for the fall semester of the 20162017 academic year. The Dean’s List recognizes students who achieve a 3.67 grade point average or better and complete at least 12 credits of coursework with no grade below a “C-.” Natalie J. Lambert, a sophomore majoring in nursing from Paton made the fall Dean’s list.

Iowa preparing for looming teacher shortage DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa education officials expect the state to face a teacher shortage, and leaders are preparing to address the issue. The Des Moines Register reports that Iowa universities are graduating 400 fewer teach-

ers, counselors and administrators annually than in 2013. The Iowa Department of Education says about 2,100 graduates are earning education degrees a year. Education leaders are hosting round-table discussions and in-

creasing recruiting efforts, especially for jobs in special-education. The looming problem is also compounded by the number of teachers nearing retirement. Some education officials are increasing incentives to lure applicants. Des Moines Pub-


One hundred seventy-one students were named to the Fall 2016 (August to December) dean’s list at Marshalltown Community College. To be eligible for the Dean’s List, students must have taken 12 or more credit hours during the semester (a full-time class load) and have earned at least a 3.5 grade point average while attending MCC classes in Marshalltown, at Iowa Valley Community College Grinnell or online. Those who made the list are Joel Grimm, Katelyn Nehring and Brieanna Simpson, of Newton.

lic Schools is offering a $3,000 signing bonus to special education teachers. Anne Sullivan, chief of human resources in Des Moines schools, says another incentive for teachers beginning their careers is a free master’s program.

county,” Voshell said. “It is the No. 1 priority to research a new space. People need to have a place they can go to that they can count on when they are looking for health needs.” The board is also looking to the future growth of the department and finding the current space hinders any new programs or services that can be offered by the county. “We can’t do anything else here, we are pretty limited. It is really not set up to be a clinic, we all know that, and we really can’t do anything else in the space we are in,” Pryor said. “I think it comes down to that, we are stagnant with what we can do within the walls of the building.” Pryor compared Jasper County to Marion County, which re-purposed a former box store building to hold its county health department, and the programs it can now offer in the larger space. “You see all of the great programs they bring to Marion County because of the building and the space,” Pryor said. “It makes me a little sad for Jasper County that we aren’t there yet.” Voshell said she feels very confident in the board of supervisors and its commitment to the health of Jasper County. “They are equally committed to venture we are on and feel very supported by them and really feel there is going to be a resolution,” Voshell said.

Iowa anglers have until Jan. 31 to buy their 2017 paddlefish license for the Missouri and Big Sioux rivers. The special paddlefish season runs from March 1 to April 15. Anglers must buy the paddlefish license on the DNR website at or by calling 800-367-1188. A resident paddlefish license sells for $22. Anglers must have a valid Iowa fishing license to buy the special license. “Iowa anglers rarely get the chance to harvest a fish of this size,” said Ryan Hupfeld, fisheries management biologist. “The average length of fish harvested in 2016 was about 33 inches, but paddlefish have the potential to reach lengths of over 50 inches and weigh over 50 pounds.”

Trivia night at the Fore Seasons D | Friday | Jan. 13, 2017

In the Neighborhood Pam Rodgers

uring the cold of winter, it is sometimes difficult to find things to keep yourself busy or entertained. Most outdoor activities work best in warmer weather, so life becomes mundane with little to do but stay inside and watch TV. I have found another option, and who could have guessed it would come at a golf establishment. Team Trivia night at the Fore Seasons in Newton has quickly become one of my favorite ways to spend a Thursday night. DJ Cubbie from Select Entertainment runs the show, and he never fails to have fun, interesting trivia questions that tease the mind. Here’s how it works. You show up a

little before 7 p.m. to grab a table, order some supper and/or refreshments and assemble your team members. Teams can be as small as two to three people. Cubbie will bring you the answer sheets and you pick a name for your trivia team. There are six rounds: 1) general knowledge, 2) photo round, 3) name that tune, 4) general knowledge (usually with some sort of theme), 5) audio clip and 6) another round of general knowledge. Best of all, the trivia contest costs you nothing but time. The general knowledge rounds really mean what it implies. It’s questions about anything from geography to business to sports to celebrities, etc. I’ve learned many fun facts just from these questions alone, and feel pretty

good when I know the answer. The photo round is fun. You are given a sheet of paper with 10 photos on it. Cubbie will tell you what you need to write down on your answer card. Photos have ranged from celebrity jack-o-lanterns to recurring characters on television shows. It’s a fun round and challenging round for sure. The name that tune round is one that can be the hardest, unless you have memorized a playlist from all eras and genres of music. Cubbie plays each song twice to give you a good listen. I feel great when I know the song, but there have been more than a few clips where I wasn’t even sure it was something that was actually played on the radio. The audio clip round is slightly different than the name that tune round. Cubbie will read a question about the clip and will play it only once. The most common questions are name the person speaking, name what television show or movie this is from, when

did this news event take place, etc. Every team has what is called a joker, and when you use it, your score will be doubled for that round. My team tries to pick the round we feel the best about trying to double a score of 8, 9 or 10 to a 16, 18 or 20. Fore Seasons provides a really nice set of prizes. Each round has a winner, and they get to draw a prize from the bucket. No team can win twice, so there are six guaranteed winners. Then at the end of all six rounds, Cubbie will announce the teams with the top three overall scores who each earn gifts cards good for use at the Fore Seasons. So the next time you are looking for something to do, especially on a Thursday night, you might consider coming out to the Fore Season for trivia night. Maybe the place is aptly named as they provide entertainment throughout all four seasons in Iowa. Contact Pam Rodgers at

So Anyway Dana King

Customer service etiquette 101 I may not be perfect (I mean, anything is possible), but when I do my job, I try my best to do my best. I spend a lot of my time doing my work quietly on my own on the computer, but I also handle phone calls and help our customers as they come in to the office. I would hope each person I deal with that enters my office, leaves feeling I’ve done my best to serve them in a professional manner, if not down right friendly. The same thing goes for those I deal with on the phone. After all, if it weren’t for our customers, where would we be? So, how do some people get away with being so rude? It goes without saying, you should greet your customers. I was at the store the other day, and the woman working as the cashier didn’t utter a word to me. Not a single word. No “how are you?” No “did you find everything you needed?” Nothing but a nasty grimace on her face. Really? As I stood there, a million things ran through my mind I should say to her about her attitude. I wanted to so badly, but it’s not in my nature. Instead, I just allowed the ill-mannered treatment and left. Needless to say, the only “thank you” uttered at the end of the transaction was mine. But what was I thanking HER for? It wasn’t the first time I’ve witnessed poor behavior from employees at businesses I’ve patronized. What got to me was the fact that this particular woman had lived enough years to have experienced curb-side delivery from a horse-pulled ice wagon. In otherwords, old enough to know better. There was another time I was getting groceries and as they were bagging up my items while I was paying at the check-out, the employees were discussing a few of their co-workers in a derogatory manner. Seriously, I’m a customer in the store you represent, so it might be a good idea to try to keep your comments and behavior professional. Don’t bellyache about your colleagues in my presence. I’d hate to think employees seriously believe either of those behaviors would be deemed acceptable by their managers. Generally I find most people working at places I shop very cordial. They have obviously heard the golden rule “Do unto  others as you would have them do unto you.” However, it’s not necessarily the good experiences we remember and relay to others. More often it’s the bad ones. Contact Dana King at


YPJC welcomes newcomers to first 2017 social Whenever I talk with people about Young Professionals of Jasper County, I often times hear the same questions: What is a Young Professional? How do you define a professional? And why should I join YPJC?

ical Center, a salesman at Beck’s Hybrids, a teacher at Baxter Elementary School or a tool and die maker at Co-Line, you are welcome in our organization. We do not check your degree, your title or your income when you attend a YPJC event. Finally, to answer why you should join YPJC, I would like to share how it has personally impacted me.

Grinnell College’s Faulconer Gallery to open two exhibitions Jan. 27 GRINNELL — Grinnell College’s Faulconer Gallery will open two separate, concurrent exhibitions at the start of second semester: “Crossing the Line,” featuring recent, visually stimulating acquisitions from the Grinnell College Art Collection, and “Joan Linder: Operation Sunshine,” with drawings of environmental significance. Open Jan. 27 through March 19, both exhibitions promise to “ask questions and investigate topics of our time,” says Daniel Strong, associate director of Faulconer Gallery and curator of exhibitions. “These exhibitions will provide a colorful, visually intense experience. We invite the public to come and expect to spend some time, not only looking but contemplating.” Selections from the Grinnell College Art Collection “Crossing the Line” features more than 50 works from the college’s art collection — prints, paintings, drawings, maps, books, photographs and objects d’art, which connect to current issues of global discourse and reveal lines crossed and repercussions dealt. “This exhibition is intended to bring up current global issues that are identified by works in the collection,” Strong said. “’Crossing the Line’ is widely varied in media and visually very stimulating, illustrating issues such as migration and immigration, incarceration

and revolution, and how these issues reshape identities. “These are issues in the news, and the collection relates to them. The art collection is here to be instructive and to make people think, not just look at or soothe, but to edify and question.” Grinnell College faculty, students and staff will write some of the texts that will accompany works in the exhibition, lending their expertise and personal experience to an understanding of the art. They will be on hand for an open conversation event on Thursday, Feb. 23, to interact with the public offering information and points of view about each work. Director of Faulconer Gallery Lesley Wright says many of the works in “Crossing the Line” are recent acquisitions, some as recent as December, purchased from the college’s endowed funds. “The Grinnell College Art Collection houses historically and culturally rich works of social and political commentary from many periods and media,” she adds. “The collection in general deals with social issues, and we can build different exhibitions in different contexts. ‘Crossing the Line,’ for example, is offered in conjunction with ‘Rethinking Global Cultures,’ a yearlong project sponsored by the college’s Center for the Humanities.” “Operation Sunshine”

Grinnell College graduate Joan Linder, class of 1992, investigates the environmental history of brownfields and toxic waste sites near Niagara Falls by making meticulous drawings of the empty fields, chain link fences and the files stored away in archives. She uses drawing to consider how history can get buried: as artifacts and chemicals in the ground, and as documents in the archive. The act of drawing becomes a way to slow down and pay attention anew to the damage that has become hidden in plain sight. “Operation Sunshine” includes more than 80 drawings of actual sites and documents, which she recreates by hand to tell a story such as 1950s research about the impact of radioactive fallout. On March 7 and 8, visitors will have the opportunity to observe Linder’s work-in-progress, “Toxic Archive,” as she draws in the gallery (see below for details). “Operation Sunshine” is offered in conjunction with the college’s Rosenfield Symposium on Technology and Human Rights, March 7-9. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week and admission is free. The Faulconer Gallery is in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell.

High school friend turned enemy continues her attacks DEAR ABBY: I need your help in dealing with an old “frenemy.” “Jenny” and I were friends in high school, but she constantly berated me and accused me of taking advantage of her. She would make herself feel better by putting me down. After she went away to college, she got pregnant by a non-boyfriend. When she had an abortion, she swore me to secrecy because she didn’t tell the father. Shortly thereafter, he came to me and tricked me into telling him. To this day, Jenny still blames me and says I was out to get her and ruin her life. Jenny spread rumors about me around our group of friends, on the internet, and told my mom horrible lies about me. She even threatened a lawsuit. Ten years later, she still pops up out of the blue to attack me. A year ago, she sent me a message saying she wished I had died in a tornado that struck my area. She sends taunts about an old boyfriend of mine who got married and had a kid. I never respond because that’s what she wants. She pops up at the worst times and makes me feel worse. How should I deal with her? — AT A BOILING POINT IN TENNESSEE DEAR BOILING: Continue to ignore this troubled woman. Block her anywhere you can, and delete any messages that leak through so you won’t have to see them. If you have mutual friends who don’t know the whole story, you should have enlightened them years ago — and the same goes for your mother. Jenny appears to have serious issues. She isn’t a “frenemy.” She is strictly bad news, so recognize it and move on. DEAR ABBY: While preparing a letter at work, I noticed that it was going to be mailed to a married lesbian couple. Typically, the correct way to address an envelope to a woman would be to Ms., Miss or Mrs. and to a male it’s either Mr. or Master, depending upon his age. What’s the proper way to address a

gay couple? Is M/M still used in place of Mr. and Mr. and Mrs. and Mrs.? — PROPER IN ILLINOIS DEAR PROPER: According to Steven Petrow’s “Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners,” the correct way to address the envelopes of married gay and lesbian couples should be (in alphabetical order): Mr. Bradley Burch and Mr. Mark Foster Ms. Cecelia Carter and Ms. Diane Grant Or, if the couple shares the same last name: Mr. Bradley and Mr. Mark Burch Ms. Cecelia and Ms. Diane Carter DEAR ABBY: Now that I’m older, I often find it hard to remember all the names and amounts of my prescriptions when I visit my various doctors. To help myself, I now carry in my wallet a small copy of a spreadsheet listing all my medication information. That way, I can give accurate details to the physician. I’d like to pass my solution on to other readers who may have the same need to be precise and up-todate when visiting the doctor. — IN GOOD HEALTH IN AUSTIN DEAR IN GOOD HEALTH: That’s a suggestion worth sharing. And while you are at it, you should also list for your doctor any vitamins, supplements and over-the-counter meds you take on a regular basis. This information can also be stored in your smartphone, if you have one.

Changes to parks department on tap for city council By Jamee A. Pierson Newton Daily News The restructuring of positions in the parks department will go before the Newton city council during its regular meeting on Monday. The potential changes in the department will align it with the other divisions in public works. The proposed resolution eliminates the portions of park administration superintendent, parks operations superintendent and cemetery superintendent. It also creates two new positions, parks superintendent and parks assistant superintendent. The changes are proposed to improve the organizational structure of the division where there is a need for less supervisors and more worker positions. With the recent retirement of two park superintendents, city staff found this to be an optimal time to make organization changes. Currently, the superintendent positions in the department is working supervisors who spend a large amount of

time working alongside supervised workers. The change will have the superintendent positions spending more time directing work, scheduling projects, meeting recreational program needs and corroding improvements in the parks. The council will also look to continue the job of addressing uncontrolled intersections in the city. In an area bound on the west by First Street North, on the east and north by the city limits and on the south by First Avenue East, the traffic safety committee found eight uncontrolled intersections. It is recommended by the committee to place stop signs at the intersections. Two public hearings are also scheduled to amend the North Central Urban Renewal Area Plan and the Southwest Economic Development Area Urban Renewal Plan. The actions are a preliminary step in the renewal process. Contact Jamee A. Pierson at 641-792-3121 ext. 6534 or

Native American site in Iowa gets historic designation WESTFIELD (AP) — A site in northwest Iowa inhabited by Native Americans roughly 800 years ago is now designated a National Historic Landmark. The designation for the 1.9-acre Kimball Village Site near Westfield was announced Wednesday by the U.S. Department of the Interior highlights the location’s significance and offers some protection against development. Historians believe the site was inhabited between 1100 and 1250 by Prairie-Plains tribes living along the Big Sioux River. Since its discovery in the late 1930s, the site remains about 97 percent untouched despite several archaeological field investigations. State archaeologist John Doershuk said the exact location of the site, which is in the middle of a farm field, will be kept confidential under the new designation due to private proper-

ty rights. The site is marked by a mound that rises several feet above ground, which Doershuk said sits atop at least 20 closely-spaced housing structures, a fortification ditch and a palisade wall. “It’s essentially a complete village — an intact village,� he said. Sioux City Public Museum’s curator of history, Matt Anderson, said that while no one knows exactly which modern tribes may have descended from the original inhabitants, he knows that the group stayed there year-round. “They hunted buffalo and deer and things like that, but they were also agriculturalists,� An-

derson said. “They grew a primitive version of corn and other grasses.� A historical account from the National Park Service says that archeologists in the 1930s excavated the site and found more than 9,000 artifacts, including tools made from bone, matting needles and animal-shaped ceramic pottery handles. Anderson said many of those artifacts are currently at the museum. “There are sites here in the Sioux City area, but the Kimball Village is the best-preserved,� he said. The site is the first National Historic Landmark in Plymouth County.

Guitarist who avoided Buddy Holly plane crash dies HOUSTON (AP) — Tommy Allsup, a guitarist best known for losing a coin toss that kept him off a plane that later crashed and killed rock ‘n’ roll stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. “Big Bopper� Richardson, has died. He was 85. Allsup, died Wednesday at a hospital in Springfield, Missouri, due to complications from a hernia operation, said his son Austin Allsup, a singer and musician, on Thursday. He had been hospitalized since early this month. Tommy Allsup was part of Holly’s band when the Lubbock, Texas, singer died in the Feb. 3, 1959, plane crash near Clear Lake. Allsup flipped a coin to see

who between him and Valens would get a seat on the plane and who would have to take the bus to the next stop on the tour. Holly, Valens and Richardson died with 21-year-old pilot Roger Peterson when the plane crashed in the Iowa countryside in snowy conditions. The three rockers’ deaths were immortalized in Don McLean’s 1971 song “American Pie,� and became known as “the day the music died.� Austin Allsup, 32, said that his father took losing the coin toss as “a blessing� and that he was humbled to be connected to “such a monumental moment in music history.� “I know my dad has talked

about that many times and knew that he was very lucky to be here. It could have been the other way around,� Austin Allsup told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday. In a 1987 interview with the AP, Tommy Allsup, who was born in Owasso, Okla., recalled flipping the coin backstage after playing a concert. “A couple of people were standing there,� he said. “I flipped it. (Valens) called ‘heads.’ He got his stuff off the bus.� Another entertainer who was left off the plane was country music star Waylon Jennings, who was also playing with Holly’s band at the time. Jennings died in 2002. | Friday | Jan. 13, 2017 Local & State News Library celebrates 25 years, hosts next DIY program Monday 8A |

Tony-nominated ‘Mamma Mia!’ to make stop in Des Moines during farewell tour By Jessica Lowe Special to Newton Daily News


ust off the old bellbottoms, grab a “Dancing Queen” and boogie on down to the Des Moines Civic Center for the upcoming production of “Mamma Mia!” The Tony-nominated musical, which is on its farewell tour, begins its six-day run in Iowa on Tuesday. “Mamma Mia!” follows the story of Donna, a hotelier on a Greek island and former singer in a girl group, who is preparing for her daughter Sophie’s wedding. Unbeknownst to Donna, the brideto-be has a plan of her own to learn the identity of her father. Sophie contacts three men she believes could be her dad — Sam, Bill and Harry — and invites them to her wedding where hilarity, mishaps, love and lots of singing ensues. “The show has so much heart and comes to life right before the audiences’ eyes every night,” said Betsy Padamonsk, who plays Donna. “The part I love about the show is that it is so relatable. They truly can relate to the show with the stories of love found, love lost, mother-daughter, friendship. There’s all these relatable stories and they come with us on this journey every night and that is my favorite part.” Not only is the story relatable, the music is well-known coming from the songbook of Swedish pop group ABBA. The hit jukebox musical features ABBA hits like “Super Trouper,” “Lay All Your Love on Me,” “Take a Chance on Me” and the ever popular

Submitted Photo by Kevin Thomas Garcia “Mamma Mia!” will be making a six-day stop in Des Moines beginning Jan. 17. Tickets are still available for the Tony-nominated show at the Des Moines Civic Center. Pictured from left are cast members Cashelle Butler, Betsy Padamonsky and Sarah Smith.

“Dancing Queen.” “I love all of the show. The show is great and I’m a huge ABBA fan,” Padamonsky said. “I really love singing ‘SOS.’ I love all the songs really because I was a massive ABBA fan long before the show.” “Mamma Mia!” is the longest running jukebox musical in history and the eighth-longest running show in Broadway history. Padamonsky said the show has taken its place in Broadway history sparking the popularity of many other musicals using famous song

books. “(As far as jukebox musicals) there is ‘Jersey Boys’, there was ‘All Shook Up’ the Elvis one, ‘American Idiot,’ there’s a bunch of them that have kind of come along and some have been more successful than others but this one has stuck around and has been a huge part of musical theater culture for 16 years.” The familiarity of the show’s music has helped make “Mamma Mia!” a draw for huge audiences around the world including for some

audience members who may not have otherwise attended a musical. “I think that it brings people who are not traditional musical theater lovers and they get into the audience and see the show and think ‘Oh my gosh! Why I have not come to a musical before?’ and they love it,” she said. The familiar ABBA tunes will be performed by cast of “Mamma Mia!” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21, and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Jan. 22. Tickets for the

latest installment of the Willis Broadway series are available starting at $30 each at DesMoinesPerformingArts. org, the Civic Center Ticket office or by calling 800-7453000. Padamonsky said she hopes people will come, take a break from the cold Iowa winter and enjoy a few hours of entertainment. “I feel people come expecting to be entertained and I think they leave feeling the love and joy we’ve tried to portray on stage.”

Mustangs dominate on Senior Night By Troy Hyde Newton Daily News MONROE — Prairie City-Monroe senior Leevi Telfer was half joking when he listed his favorite wrestling memory as being the best looking manager last season. Telfer suffered a shoulder injury in the opening meet of the season and did not return, wiping away his entire junior campaign. This season, Telfer is back and better than ever, and he was able to celebrate Senior Night with his teammates during the Mustangs’ Heart of Iowa Conference sweep of Greene County and South Hamilton on Thursday. Telfer went 2-0 on the night, recording a pin during the 55-24 victory over the Rams. He improved to 16-7 on the season when he took one of six forfeits in an 81-0 triumph over the Hawks. “I have had a shoulder problem my entire life,” Telfer said. “The doctors said I probably wouldn’t be able to wrestle again after I got injured last year. That was their recommendation. But my rehab went well, and I had a great physical therapist. He worked me back to almost full strength. “I wasn’t sure after the injury last year that I would be able to play football or wrestle, so to be able to make it to Senior Night of wrestling after a good football season and so far a good wrestling season is nice.” The two wins for PCM improves the Mustangs to 11-7

Troy Hyde/Daily News Prairie City-Monroe senior Clayton Welch, top, finished off a win by pin against South Hamilton’s Zach Larson during the Mustangs’ 81-0 win on Thursday. PCM defeated Greene County earlier in the night and is now 6-0 in the Heart of Iowa Conference this season.

overall and keeps them undefeated in HOIC action at 6-0. Saydel improved to 6-0 on the season with two HOIC wins Thursday, too. The HOIC dual title will be decided in a triangular Jan. 19 at Collins-Maxwell/Baxter. “We want the outright title. The conference title is the first step,” PCM coach Cory Waddell said. “We can get our first goal done next week, and then

that should set us up for the conference meet which then sets us up for the postseason. It’s just a stepping stone in meeting our goals.” Five senior wrestlers, senior manager Brooke Nicholson and senior cheerleaders Sierra Littrell, Kayla Schakel and Emmalea Findlow were honored before the duals kicked off. Telfer was one of three se-

niors who went 2-0 on the night. Jakeb Fenton won both of his matches by fall at 120, while Xavier Miller earned a win by fall against South Hamilton and an 18-1 technical fall win against Greene County (7-11 overall, 3-3 in the HOIC) at 145. Miller, who is ranked No. 4 in Class 2A at 145 pounds, improved to 22-2 on the season and is now 130-22 in his

Peter Jok scored 29 points with eight assists and six rebounds and Iowa rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit to beat No. 17 Purdue 83-78 on Thursday night. “When you go through what we went through down there, you have to learn from it,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said of his young team’s 89-67 loss on Dec. 28. “You grow, and you figure it out.” Freshman Tyler Cook had 16 points for the

Hawkeyes (11-7, 3-2), who beat a ranked team at home for the second time this season — this time by outrebounding the bigger Boilermakers 35-28 and shooting 67 percent in the second half. “(Jok) made some tough shots. Maybe not for him, but tough for everyone else,” Purdue coach Matt Painter said of Jok, who was 11-of-19 from the field. “I thought we executed. We just didn’t finish.” Caleb Swanigan, who led Purdue (14-4, 3-2) with 17 points, missed a layup in front of the rim with 13.8 seconds left and the Boilermakers down 79-78.

Friday the 13th: lucky or unlucky


hen Friday the 13th rolls around, do you dread it or is it just another day? Jan. 13 is the first of only two Friday the 13ths in 2017. The year 2016 had just one — in May — and 2015 had three. The other Friday the 13th of 2017 is in October. Athletes and sports fans are some of the most superstitious or ritualistic people in the world. There are plenty of stories of athletes with lucky clothing or routines they have to do before competing. It’s about the power of the mind — whatever helps them become focused and prepared is good for the mental part of athletics. Me? I tend to wear the same shirt if my team — Kansas State, Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals or whatev-

The Pressbox Jocelyn Sheets er high school team I’m covering — is winning. I have several other rituals as a fan. I had a brother born on April 13. I’m sure it fell on a Friday from time to time. He was a very good person with a great big heart. Over the years, I can’t recall anything really bad happening in my life on a Friday the 13th. Newton High’s basketball teams play on this Friday the 13th. The Cardinal squads are on the road taking on the ranked Pella Christian teams in Pella. To the few players and coaches I talked to, it’s just another Friday game night. Earlier this week I posed the following question to several Newton High athletes, coaches and administrators: Is Friday the 13th good

luck or bad luck for you? I found out we don’t have a lot of superstitious people among those answering the question. “I like to think it is a good luck day. My favorite number is 13 and Friday is the end of the school week, so I love it. Before every football game, we prayed as a team then I’d go off on my own and say a prayer to get ready.” — Newton football player Reagan Maple. “I’m not really superstitious so it’s just another day.” — Newton basketball player Courtney Jacobsen. “Yeah, it’s just another day.” — Newton basketball and volleyball player Taylor Shipley. “My father was born on a Friday the 13th. My dad was the greatest guy I ever knew, so to me, it’s a good day.” — Newton basketball and football assistant coach Tom Weeks. “It’s a good day for me any time. It’ll be a good day for basketball.” — Newton basketball and football player Garrett Sturtz. “I haven’t had bad luck on a Friday the 13th, however, I don’t want to test my luck.

Iowa loses pair of assistants on offense IOWA CITY (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says two offensive assistant coaches won’t return next season. Ferentz announced Thursday that wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy and running backs/special teams coach Chris White will be leaving the program. Hawkeyes receivers struggled mightily in 2016, leaving Iowa with one of the worst passing attacks in the country. Though the Hawkeyes ran the ball well last season, the moves allow new offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz to handpick who he’ll be working with. Iowa has three vacancies to fill on offense following Greg Davis’ retirement last week. The Hawkeyes could fill one of those openings with a quarterbacks coach. Kennedy and White both joined the program in 2013. ways wear the same pair of socks for a team I’m on and I don’t change my basketball shoes from season to season.” — Newton basketball player Ali Bestell. “I don’t even pay attention. As an athlete, I always wore the same T-shirt under my football pads throughout high school and college.” — Newton Athletic Director Scott Garvis. “I’m not a wildly superstitious person. If I had Friday the 13th to worry about, I’d miss out on other things. I have a routine I follow to feel good on game day.” — Newton head boys’ basketball coach Bill Liley. “I don’t believe in it. As a coach, I wear basketball socks and keep the same water bottle. We’ll get out and play basketball and compete with them.” — Newton head girls’ basketball coach Brandon Sharp. “You make your own luck.” — Newton girls’ tennis and assistant girls’ basketball coach Erick Zehr.

Packers may be better equipped if Nelson can’t go GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers offense appears to be in better shape than last season to be successful without Jordy Nelson. They struggled to hit big plays when Nelson missed the 2015 season with a knee injury. Now, Nelson’s status is in question again for Green Bay’s divisional round playoff game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, this time because of injured ribs. But the win over the New York Giants in the wild-card game last week showed that they can withstand the potential loss of quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ top receiver. Nelson, who had an NFL-best 14 touchdown catches in the regular season, left with about 11 minutes left in the second quarter with the Packers trailing 3-0 to New York. Green Bay ended up winning 38-13 , an impressive output against a Giants defense that had been playing well going into the playoffs. “Compared to a year PACKERS | 3B

Broncos hire Vance Joseph as their head coach ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — A runner-up two years ago, Vance Joseph is John Elway’s pick this time around. The 44-year-old ex-Colorado quarterback built a reputation as one of the league’s best secondary coaches as he worked his way through the ranks in San Francisco, Houston and Cincinnati before serving as Dolphins defensive

coordinator last season and helping Miami end an eightyear playoff drought. Joseph, who will be formally introduced as the team’s 16th head coach Thursday, impressed Elway in 2015 when Gary Kubiak got the job and the Broncos even tried to hire him as their defensive coordinator, a move the Bengals blocked. So, he stayed in Cin-

cinnati for another year as secondary coach before joining Adam Gase’s staff in Miami. Kubiak, 55, stepped down over health concerns last week, capping a tumultuous season by the Broncos (9-7), who missed the playoffs a year after winning the Super Bowl. Elway also interviewed Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub and Falcons offen-

sive coordinator Kyle Shanahan over the weekend. Joseph flew to Denver on Tuesday following Miami’s wild-card loss at Pittsburgh. Joseph also had interviews lined up with the Chargers on Wednesday, the 49ers on Thursday and the Rams on Friday. But he canceled his California trip after his meeting with Elway.

All four NFL divisional games are rematches By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press There will be a familiar feel to the NFL playoffs next weekend: Every divisional-round game will be a rematch from the regular season, the first time that’s happened in six years. In the NFC, it’s the Green Bay Packers at the Dallas Cowboys, and the Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta. In the AFC, it’s the Houston Texans playing as huge underdogs at New England, and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City. The first times around, Dallas beat Green Bay 30-16 in Week 6 , Seattle beat Atlanta 26-24 in Week 6 , New England beat Houston 27-0 in Week 3 with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, and Pittsburgh beat Kansas City 43-14 in Week 4 . Not that those results necessarily mean much now, especially because none was more recent than October. The Steelers know how much things can change. After all, they lost to the Dolphins by 15 points during the regular season, then advanced Sunday with a 30-12 victory over Miami in the wild-card round, their eighth victory in a row. “We’re not trying to settle vendettas and things of that nature. They beat us fair and square in Week 6. You tip your cap to them for that performance,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. “Today was today. And it’s going to be the same going forward. What happened during the regular season is of little importance.” Here’s a closer look at next weekend, when each game features one starting QB who has won the Super Bowl (Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers,

Seattle’s Russell Wilson, New England’s Tom Brady, Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger): PACKERS at COWBOYS Sunday, 3:40 p.m. CST, Fox That loss to Dallas nearly three months ago was part of Green Bay’s 4-6 start. But ever since Rodgers spoke about trying to “run the table,” NFC North champion Green Bay has won seven consecutive games, including 38-13 over the New York Giants in the wild-card round. Rodgers has 19 TD passes and zero interceptions during the unbeaten run, but one question now is whether favorite target Jordy Nelson, hurt against New York, will be

available. Green Bay’s pass defense, shaky and beset by injuries, might not have an easy time against Dallas QB Dak Prescott, a preternaturally poised rookie who threw for three TDs in the October matchup. The No. 1-seeded Cowboys’ other first-year sensation, Ezekiel Elliott, gained 157 yards in his first game against the NFL’s eighth-best run defense.

L.A. Rams make Sean McVay youngest coach in NFL history

Hawkeyes Continued from Page 1B throw, but Iowa got the ball back after a lengthy review and Jordan Bohannon hit two from the line. Dakota Mathias missed a contested 3-pointer with 4 seconds left for Purdue, which lost for the first time this season to a team not in this week’s Top 25. “We got good looks. We didn’t execute, and we put ourselves in a tough position,” Painter said of the Boilermakers down the stretch. Isaac Haas scored 13 points with six rebounds for the Boilermakers. Swanigan, the nation’s leading rebounder entering play, had eight — five below his average. “They wanted a little bit of revenge on their home court,” Haas said. “They got it.” The Big Picture Purdue: The Boilermakers hit 21-of-25 free throws. But they lost because they let Iowa shoot 57 percent from the field and score 40 points in the paint. This one might come back to hurt Purdue if the Big Ten race gets tight, as it usually does, down the stretch. Iowa: The Hawkeyes showed they can hang with anyone in the Big Ten if they play well, despite starting four freshmen. Iowa likely won’t push the leaders in the league race, but .500 is now a possibility. Poll Implications Purdue will likely drop a few spots. But the Hawkeyes are 10-2 at home — including wins over Michigan and Iowa State — and were still smarting from that

against NFC West champion Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” defense, which is missing injured safety Earl Thomas but still features Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor. In the first meeting, Ryan threw for three TDs, while Jones finished with seven catches for 139 yards and a score. But most memorable was an incompletion on fourth down with 90 seconds left, when Sherman grabbed Jones’ arm on a deep pass. Definitely a 1-on-1 matchup to keep an eye on this time. Also worth monitoring: How Atlanta’s so-so defense deals with Seattle’s offense, which seemed reborn as

Thomas Rawls ran for 161 yards in a 26-6 win over Detroit in the wild-card round. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn used to be Seattle’s defensive coordinator. “Such a hard-nosed, tough coach, and his team embodies him out there,” Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said. “It’s like playing ourselves.” TEXANS at PATRIOTS Saturday, 7:15 p.m., CBS New England is one of the biggest betting favorites in a playoff game, and here’s why: Bill Belichick’s Patriots have outscored protege Bill O’Brien’s Texans by a combined 54-6 in their past two head-to-head games. As good as Houston’s topranked defense has been — Jadeveon Clowney’s interception set the tone for a 27-14 win over Oakland in the wildcard round — there is a world of difference between facing a rookie QB making his first NFL start (Oakland’s Connor Cook) and a three-time Super Bowl MVP (Brady). And Belichick will surely dream up some schemes to bedevil Texans QB Brock Osweiler. STEELERS at CHIEFS Sunday, 12:05 p.m., NBC What might matter and might not: Steelers QB Roethlisberger needed a walking boot after hurting his right foot against Miami. If he’s fine next week, it will be fun to watch him, WR Antonio Brown and RB Le’Veon Bell take on Marcus Peters, Eric Berry and the rest of Kansas City’s formidable defense. On the other side of the ball, Steelers LB James Harrison and Co. should be able to handle Chiefs QB Alex Smith, but the question is how Pittsburgh’s defense and special teams will corral rookie speedster Tyreek Hill.

blowout at Purdue two weeks ago. A Tussle with Muscle Pemsl got into a loose ball tussle with Hass, who is 7-foot-2, which sent both players tumbling to the court. But when Pemsl got up, he got a standing ovation from a crowd happy to see him fight so hard for the ball. Haas took another Hawkeye, Ryan Kriener, to the ground in the second half — and it was Pemsl who helped Haas up. Balling Out One of the most entertaining sequences of this entertaining matchup came midway

through the second half. Bohannon hit a 3-pointer to give Iowa the lead. Ryan Cline answered with a trey — and Bohannon went right down the court and buried another one. Cline answered back with another 3-pointer, the fourth between the two in just 62 seconds. That was indicative of a game with 20 lead changes. He Said It “You can’t put yourself in a tough spot on the road. You’ve got to separate yourself and not (have it) come down to those situations,” Painter said. Iowa was 0-of-5 from the line in the first half.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have made Sean McVay the youngest head coach in modern NFL history, and he appears to be getting some experienced help. The Rams on Thursday hired McVay, who turns 31 on Jan. 24. Several hours later, reported the Rams have finalized a deal with 69-year-old Wade Phillips to be their defensive coordinator, although the team declined to confirm it. McVay has been the Washington Redskins’ offensive coordinator since 2014. He will replace Jeff Fisher, who was fired 13 games into the Rams’ homecoming season in Los Angeles, and interim head coach John Fassel, who led the Rams to a 4-12 finish in their 13th consecutive non-winning season. “The accomplishments and success that he has had in less than a decade in our league are impressive,”

Rams owner Stan Kroenke said in a statement. “We are confident in his vision to make this team a consistent winner and we will all continue to work together to achieve our ultimate goal, bringing a Rams Super Bowl championship to Los Angeles.” McVay spent the past three seasons as Jay Gruden’s offensive coordinator with the Redskins. He has been an assistant since 2010 in Washington, where he worked with Gruden and Bill Callahan to build a prolific offense led by quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Rams made the eye-catching move on the same day that the Chargers announced their relocation to Los Angeles to share the Rams’ $2.6 billion stadium. The Chargers are still without a coach, and the Rams grabbed some of their headlines by snagging one of the most interesting names on the coaching market.


ankle injury. Allison, who had eight catches for 157 yards and a score while Cobb was out, has added depth to the receiving corps. Davante Adams has emerged as a go-to option after catching 12 touchdown passes in a breakout regular season. Cobb provides energy and postseason experience. The Packers can also create matchup problems with athletic tight end Jared Cook , and receiver-turned-running back Ty Montgomery out of the backfield. “We’re a different offense, though,” Rodgers said. “We’re doing a lot of different things than we were last year, a lot of things better. I think our offensive line is playing better. Our scheme has advanced, and we’re getting more contributions from the tight end at this point. “Davante is a legit receiver in this league, and obviously Randall Cobb, who is established as well.” Cobb, who said he was still playing through pain, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Another receiver, Jeff Janis, missed practice with a quadriceps injury.

Continued from Page 2B ago a lot of things are different,” coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday. “Obviously our production is a lot higher than where we were a year ago. The development of a number of our younger players is higher than a year ago. I would say we’re definitely better prepared than we were a year ago.” As expected, Nelson missed practice to focus on rehab, a plan to continue on Thursday. McCarthy has said that Nelson might have a chance to play against the Cowboys if the receiver can take part in the team’s final practice on Saturday. “It would be very tough,” receiver Geronimo Allison said Wednesday night when asked what it might feel like to play with broken ribs. “Those ribs down there where you’re breathing at, it would be tough, especially if you take a shot in there again.” Allison, an undrafted rookie free agent, might be one of those backups asked to step up, just as he did when Randall Cobb missed the final two games of the regular season with an

opportunities that don’t really seem like they are. Those are the ones to catch. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The current problems are not interrupting your joy; in fact, they are a nice big slice of your joy. Somewhere in you, you know that you can overcome this, and overcome it you will. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You might know what the expectation would typically be in a given situation, but since there are individuals involved whose minds you can’t read, you don’t know what the expectation actually is. So, you may as well suit yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The one with the biggest picture

wins every time. Today’s win: The side benefits will outweigh the real ones. This will happen because you’re playing a larger game than the one at the table you’re sitting around. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone on the earth’s face wants to feel better, but each will go about it in different ways. Today, your tolerance for another person’s methods will make both of your lives easier. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as there are spaces in your home that you don’t use, there are spaces in your psyche that go untouched -- that is, until certain people come along. You’ll enjoy how the related emotional dynamic plays out

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Remember when you went from one serious relationship straight into another and missed out on all that fun? What you learned from that will inform your weekend.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Bottom line: If you are worried about rejection, then your fear is stronger than your desire. It’s not a good place to come from in business, and it’s a disastrous position if pleasure is your aim. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mind can be crueler to you than any person has ever been. Do not let negative thinking keep you from taking an exciting risk. If you desire it, you can break your mental

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People like the idea of winging things spontaneously, because that feels fun in the mind. But when it translates to real life, well, it could go a lot of ways. And it will. It can’t hurt to also have a plan in your back pocket. COPYRIGHT 2016 CREATORS.COM
