Newton resident to appear on Season 13 of American Idol Heikkila’s tryout in Omaha to air later in a few weeks By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor Season 13 of arguably one of the most successful reality television singing contests debuts tonight with a two-hour special. But those hoping to see Newton’s own Dani Heikkila perform on “American Idol” may have to wait awhile to see her audition. The two-hour season premiere of AI airs tonight beginning at 7 p.m. Dani, 16, auditioned last fall in Omaha, which will air on the Thursday,

Jan. 30, episode. The show airs each Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. on KDSM-TV Channel 17.1, the Des Moines FOX affiliate. The Newton native can’t talk about how the audition went — spoilers — but some AI bloggers are suggesting she did quite well. Dani has performed as part of the Worship Team at The Newton Church of the Way. According to her Facebook page, she said she was mentored by “an amazing team of leadership within the church.” IDOL See Page 5A

Des Moines teenagers smash window, escape house fire DES MOINES (AP) — Two Des Moines teenagers escaped a fire in their home by smashing a window and scrambling to safety. KCCI-TV reports a smoke alarm sounded Tuesday morning in the home of Butch Grimm. The alarm roused Grimm’s 13-year-old son, who rushed to wake up his 15-year-old sister. They tried to get out, but the small house was filling quickly with smoke, so the girl wrapped her hand with a cloth and smashed the bottom part of a window. They removed the shards of glass and climbed out. Grimm’s two other children were at school when the fire broke out. Most of the family’s possessions were destroyed in the fire, but Grimm says he’s relieved his family is safe. NewtoN

He began working for Travelers Insurance Company as a claims adjuster and worked his way up to management positions. His work took him to several states, and after 42 years with the company, he retired and continued to live in Florida. For many years, he enjoyed working with wood, antiques and was a skilled craftsman. Retirement gave him time to travel the world with his wife Rebecca. In addition to pleasure trips to the seven continents, his passion of serving

others took him on 28 missions. He provided reading glasses to the less fortunate in countries such as South Sudan, Peru, Cuba, Namibia and villages of the Amazon. His love of God influenced all aspects of his life including love for his family and friends. As his health declined because of pulmonary fibrosis, he continued to feel blessed, was at peace and ready to meet Jesus. He was preceded in

Ty’s Take

Messick, Julius right to not support Newton Housing Initiative To the editor: I believe Dennis Messick and former Councilman D.J. Julius expressed wisdom by not being supportive of the Newton Housing Initiative bond for $3,650,000 to build a large number of $225,000 homes when taxes are high and will continue to be so for 10 years. I do not see guaranteed high taxes for 10 years as an incentive for the average homebuyer. If high salaried workers in Des Moines buy into it, they may have a deal, but the average homeowner in Newton will not, and this

could prove a hardship for retirees who did not fare so well and those who have had to settle for lower-paying jobs. If taxes go up, rent frequently goes up. That may prove a hardship for those saving to buy a home or stay in Newton. I repeat, considering to maintain high taxes for 10 years is not a happy thought. I believe a suggestion was made to try it over a shorter period of time. Perhaps that could be reconsidered. Joyce Moen Newton

Trivia time As the emcee at Fore Seasons Golf Practice Center played an audio clip, a small debate broke out at my table and fellow staff writer Zach Johnson provided our team’s answer. “Al Pacino. Yeah that sounded like him,” Zach said with the utmost confidence. He was wrong and By Ty Rushing it turned out the answer to, “Name the Daily News Staff Writer actor or the television character’s name from this audio clip?” was David Hyde-Pierce or Niles Crane. Good hustle out there Zach. With my normal Thursday night tradition, karaoke at The Scoreboard on hiatus, I had to figure out how I was going to celebrate my 27th birthday last Thursday? Thankfully, I’ve found a new Thursday night activity that is sure to take Newton by storm: Trivia Night at Fore Seasons. My team “The Hobbit Squad,” wound up winning second-place after six rounds of do-or-die, hardcore and intense trivia action. Questions ranged from “who was the only First Lady to be subpoenaed?” to “what is the name of Jay Z’s clothing line?” This is what made trivia night awesome. Literally any team could win any round at any given moment. Unlike my favorite game show of all time, “Jeopardy,” you didn’t need to be a whiz at classic British literature or known the capitols of European countries to win. If you have ever watched old TV shows, listened to any type of music from the last four decades or are obsessed with how awesome Jay Z is, you and your team stand a chance of winning. As a team, we only managed to win one round, where you identified the famous actors by name after looking at a card with their pictures on them in numerical order. We were so confident, that in fact, we used our “Joker,” which means you get double points if you win. Our roll of the dice paid off and we did in fact win that round. Unfortunately, so did several other teams, which resulted in the first tie-breaker of the night. To resolve this tie-breaker, each team picked one person to go up and answer a bonus question. It was my birthday and I decided to call my own number.

As I made my way up there to represent the Hobbit Squad, I begin to feel the pressure mounting on me. Finally, the question was asked, “What percentage of party guests look through the host’s medicine cabinet?” The rules for answering the question were “Price is Right” style and if you went over the amount, your answer was wrong. I guessed 60 percent and yeah, I was pretty wrong. The actual answer was 40 percent. I call shenanigans and I think the people who were surveyed for this question didn’t provide honest answers. I mean come on, even if you don’t do it on the regular, plenty of people have looked in someone’s cabinet during a party (yes, I’m guilty of this, don’t judge me). Once I was back in my seat, the two hours that it takes to complete all six rounds seemed to fly by as I was enjoying a $4 pork tenderloin sandwich and $3 bacon cheese fries as my team and I took turns bashing the teammate who gave a wrong answer. Another reason it flew was Andy, the aforementioned emcee. He does a great job of finding questions that are fun, yet challenging, providing sweet prizes and having great interactions with the crowd. It was our first trivia night and he was there to guide us through it and he made sure we had a good time. But it wasn’t just us he kept an eye on; he was creating inside jokes with just about every table, whether they were regulars or “newbies” like us. This was a pretty impressive feat considering last week there a was standing room only crowd. In fact, last week’s success prompted them to move tomorrow evenings trivia into the “big room” at Fore Seasons. All week people kept asking me, “What are you going to do for your birthday?” and when I told them, “Go to trivia?” I would often get puzzled looks followed by, “Really?” Well, I’m glad I stuck to my guns, because I had a great time at trivia and it was way more fun than getting stood up like I did on my 26th birthday or working an overnight at the warehouse like I did for my 21st birthday. So thanks Newton for helping me ring in 27 and look “fore” me tomorrow at trivia. And this week I’m going for first place. ••• Staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at,

Adoption Continued from Page 1A Lancaster will then speak at the 8:15 and 10:30 a.m. services at Community Heights Alliance in Newton. She also will present during the Sunday School hour, which begins at 9:30 a.m. “I will also bring my book, ‘Souls on Ice.’ Mike Huckabee wrote the forward,” Lancaster said. “It includes 11 other stories about families who have had babies as a result of embryo adoption.” The Lancasters had struggled with infertility for years when, about 11 years ago, Maria’s husband Jeff heard an interview about embryo adoption during Dr. James Dobson’s “Focus on the Family” radio program. Dobson was discussing the process of adopting frozen embryos with Marlene Strege, the first woman to ever do so, who now has a little girl named Hannah. Maria had endured several painful miscarriages in the past, but the message she and her husband got from Dobson’s interview with Strege gave them renewed hope. They contacted Dobson, who referred them to the adoption agency Strege had used, and became the first family in Washington to adopt embryos

from another family. “We’re now the proud parents of a beautiful daughter, Elisha,” Lancaster said. “She is a reminder to us all that life is precious and that life does begin at conception and should be cherished.” Elisha had been frozen when developed to just two cells, and had been in storage at minus-200 F in a medical freezer for four years when she was adopted. She will be coming to Newton with her mother, as well. She will speak about her own experience. “If people haven’t heard about, they probably know someone who has been impacted by infertility,” Lancaster said. “One in four families struggle with infertility, so almost everyone knows someone impacted by it.” Having overcome their own battle with infertility and miscarriage, Maria and Jeff partnered with Pastor Joe Fuiten of Cedar Park Church in Bothell, Wash. Together, they established Embryo Adoption Services of Cedar Park, the first church-based embryo adoption ministry. Since it began in 2008, the agency has connected dozens of families from the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom with the still-new and affordable adoption option. Many have given birth to their own “miracle” children,

Process Continued from Page 1A These are the basic steps; individual specific steps may vary for some families. For the donor family, having remaining embryos stored in a freezer can pose a dilemma, however, embryo adoption is an alternative to discarding the embryos and donating them for embryonic stem cell research.

Legislature Continued from Page 1A The governor also proposed a Fiscal Year 2015 budget that spends only 91 percent of the state’s authorized capacity. His recommendation is eight percentage points less than is required by law. State Rep. Dan Kelley (DNewton) had said Monday his top priority this legislative session will be job creation to

Embryos may be donated to another family anonymously. Or, they can be made available to a family for adoption where the family could be known on some level of contact. The kind of contact between the families is decided by the donor family and includes: • Closed adoption. You would know the first names of the family. You can still have a birth announcement. You can still find out if there was a born child, if you want to know.

help grow Iowa’s middle class. He said that could be done by championing initiatives such as raising the minimum wage, freezing tuition, and expanding job training efforts. Following the governor’s address, he said lawmakers are ready to work together and build a strong middle class. “If we keep focused on the middle class, we can approve some common sense solutions and give Iowans more economic security,” he said. “I was


like Elisha. “It’s very rare that women can’t carry a child, once they’re pregnant,” Lancaster said. “Once they’re pregnant, it’s usually not a problem. We can do a lot of help with embryo adoption — it’s a real message of hope, but it’s an avenue not a lot of people know about.” Embryo Adoption Services of Cedar Park’s mission is designed to bring the millions of couples who struggle with infertility together with the families who have thousands of human embryos held in suspended animation in medical freezers to help them connect so that those embryos have “a chance to be born into a loving family.” “Every embryo is a precious gift of matchless value, a human being at its earliest stages,” Lancaster said. “Our goal is to bring families together, and offer embryos a chance to be born, for the sake of their own lives, and for the infinite number of future generations.” A Waukee family has a similar story to tell. Luke and Joni Timm had been married for 12 years, with three children — 9-year-old Isaac, 6-yearold Mattea and 4-year-old Phoebe — when they decided they wanted to grow their family through adoption. “From the beginning of our marriage, Joni and I knew that

adoption would be part of our lives. It is more than a nagging feeling or a passing idea; it is a calling,” Luke said. “That calling has been confirmed time and time again by close friends who have adopted or who are adopted and hearing the blessing it has been in their lives. At every turn, God seems to have prompted us, never allowing the passion for adoption to fade too much.” Just recently, the Timms came to the conclusion that a regular adoption would take quite a bit of time, until Phoebe was anywhere from 5 to 7 years old. They soon heard about embryo adoption. “If the biological parents are unable to implant all of their embryos, they are able to remain in a frozen state for a long period of time. For some, this creates a personal point of angst,” Luke said. “Some biological parents wish to have their embryos given a chance at life but are unable to provide it themselves. Often times the reason is physical or health related. Sometimes it is more personal and complicated than that. Simply donating them is an option, but for some parents they desire more input into the process.” Embryo adoption is similar to a traditional adoption in that the adoptive family must go through home studies, background checks and

When the donating family finds an adopting family it is comfortable with, the agency will initiate contact in line with the level of contact the donating family has specified.

And through adoption, the genetic parents have much more say about who adopts their embryos than if they were simply to donate them. “They also have the peace of mind to know that we have been fully scrutinized as a family so that their embryos have the best chance of becoming happy, healthy children physically and emotionally,” Luke added. Ultimately, the Timms were connected with a couple from Alaska, from whom they arranged to adopt some embryos. A few days later, a FedEx truck arrived with the package of frozen embryos, which had been shipped cross-continent to Waukee. After the embryos were implanted, the Timms returned to the doctor’s office for an ultrasound. “It worked — really worked,” Luke said. They saw one heartbeat, then another heartbeat and then a third.” The Timms’ triplets, Malachi, Ezekiel and Evangeline, were born last month at a Des Moines hospital. Although there was a longer hospital stay — related to the fact they were multiples, not the invitro fertilization process — all three were healthy and are now at home with the rest of their family.

Angry dad wants to learn how to control his emotions DEAR ABBY: I’m a dad in my 30s and I have a problem. I have been battling anger issues since I was a kid. I have been finding myself getting more and more worked up with my kids. When they misbehave, I lose it and yell at them. It is the way I was raised; however, I feel even worse afterward. I really want to break this habit. I don’t want the only memories my children have of me to be images of my red face and bugged-out eyes hollering at them. Do you have any guidelines I can follow to get a better handle on my anger? — LOUD DAD IN WEST VIRGINIA DEAR LOUD DAD: Yes, I do. And I’m glad you asked me because it’s important that you find other ways of relieving your frustration than taking it out on your children. It is not only counterproductive, it is extremely destructive. When a bigger person yells at a smaller person, the message is often lost because the smaller person (in your case, your children) simply shuts down out of fear that physical violence might follow. You should not ignore your feelings when your children act up. Rather, you need to find another manner for expressing your emotions. My booklet “The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It” offers suggestions on redirecting angry feelings in a healthy way. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby — Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Dealing with anger calmly and with reason is more effective than lashing out. Expressing your feelings is healthy when it’s done with a few well-chosen words that make your point. As you have already learned,

exploding in anger serves no constructive purpose and only makes you feel worse afterward. Sometimes when people are angry or frustrated about other things, they can lose control of their temper. In situations like these, it is important to evaluate the source of what might really be irritating you before misdirecting your anger at someone who is blameless. There are healthy ways of dealing with anger and frustration. Developing the control to express emotions verbally without being abusive or calling names is one of them. Another is to say a prayer (“Please Lord, don’t let me lose my temper!”) before opening your mouth. Leaving the room, going for a walk or short run can be helpful. Unhealthy ways that should be avoided include getting into your car when you are angry, or using alcohol or drugs to calm you. My booklet offers many other suggestions for dealing with anger and frustration, and I hope it will be helpful to you. However, if it isn’t, then you should discuss your problem with a mental health professional. It’s important to get a handle on your feelings so your children won’t grow up thinking that verbal abuse is a normal way to handle their emotions.

Sacred Heart to host information sessions

Ask About Community Heights Church By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer Members of the Community Heights Alliance Church want the community to “Ask me about Community Heights church.” Before Thanksgiving, Community Heights Alliance Church began a sign campaign asking the community to ask them about the church. Community Heights had yard signs made for all the church members to put in their yards. “This has been an amazing campaign for our church in multiple ways,” Community Heights Alliance Associate Pastor John Patterson said. “It has be-

came a way many of our church members have got to know each other, who attend different services.” The campaign was created by Community Heights members Paul Goodman and his wife, Marilyn, who presented an idea on how the church could connect and let people know it was a part of the Newton Community. “The campaign has increased awareness of the number of members of Community Heights and has created encouragement as it gives our members a chance to identify other members of the congregation,” Patterson said. Community Heights

focuses on the connection within its church, but also among surrounding churches in Newton. “We have seen more of a connection amongst those who have recognized the signs across town,” Patterson said. “In the end, it’s still about spreading the love of Jesus Christ across the community of Newton.” Community Heights offers many programs and has started a few new campaigns, but recognizes the main endgoal of its ministry. “The one thing more important than anyone attending Community Heights, is that people get in touch with the

Pope names 19 new cardinals, focusing on the poor VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis named his first batch of cardinals Sunday, choosing 19 men from around the world, including the developing nations of Haiti and Burkina Faso, in line with his belief the church must pay more attention to the poor. Francis read out the 19 names to a crowd of tens of thousands in St. Peter’s Square. Since his election in March as the first pontiff

from Latin America, the pope has broken tradition after tradition in terms of protocol and style at the Vatican. But in Sunday’s list, Francis stuck to the church’s rule of having no more than 120 cardinals eligible to elect the next pontiff. The College of Cardinals is 13 shy of that 120mark among eligible-to-vote members. In addition, three cardinals will turn 80 by May. Not counting the four picks from the curia

who no longer represent the church in their homelands, the other new voting cardinals include two from Europe, three from North and Central America, three from South America, and two apiece from Africa and Asia. Francis has stressed that the church hierarchy mustn’t view itself as an elite aloof from its flock, but instead serve its flock, especially the poor.

Newton’s boys ride fast start to win over Oskaloosa By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer NEWTON — Fast starts and big finishes haven’t been commonplace so far this season for Newton’s boys basketball team, but they got a little bit of both in a big win on Tuesday night against the visiting Oskaloosa Indians. Junior Tyler Wood came out in a flurry, scoring 13 points in the first quarter to the Indians’ 12. He had 21 at halftime and finished with 28 in the 78-59 victory for the Cardinals. Wood started things, but they were finished with a total team effort of scoring and rebounding by Chandler Sturtz, Devin Shores and Joe Banfield, all of which had buckets during a big second-half stretch that allowed Newton to pull away. “With Tyler, that’s pretty standard,” Newton coach Nick Wilkins said. “We can’t get used to him scoring that

many a night, but the fact is he’s that good of a player. He’s going to score, and he doesn’t take a lot of shots to do it. He shoots a good percentage all the way around. It gets the other kids going too. Everybody else started to hit shots, and we got going from there.” The Indians had trimmed Newton’s lead down to four points with 3:17 to go in the third quarter, but coming out of a timeout, Newton’s press forced a turnover, which led to a 3-pointer by Sturtz. Sturtz rebounded an Osky miss and found Connor Gholson at the top of the circle for another long-range shot. Gholson and Wood both hit 3-pointers midway through the final quarter, and with two minutes left and a 17-point lead, Wilkins was able to rest his starters the remainder of the game.

Newton girls hold off Oskaloosa for win By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer NEWTON — Sydney Jenkins and Michaela Jacobsen’s outside shooting combined for nearly half of Newton’s points, and some inside scoring from Shelby Gray provided the punch the Cardinals needed to snap a four-game losing streak with a 45-37 victory over Oskaloosa on Tuesday. The Indians led early, taking a small 8-7 edge into the second quarter. Early on, the Cards struggled to penetrate the Indians’ 2-3 zone, but a 3-pointer in the opening seconds of the second quarter by Jenkins opened things up. Jessica Reynolds got into the post for a score, but the Indians kept answering by driving baseline and getting to the hoop. With 3:40 left in the quarter, sophomore Hannah Rhoads knocked down a shot from the elbow. Jenkins followed with a floater in the lane to tie the game at 15-all. Rhoads then took a charge, which got the momentum swinging even more in Newton’s favor. Jacobsen found Rhoads for a layup, and the Cards began to press. After forcing a turnover that led to another Newton bucket, Osky was forced to call timeout. As time ran down in the quarter, Jacobsen stepped to the line for two free throws. She knocked down the first, and although she missed the second, she got her own rebound and put it back up for the score. The Cards took a

Raiders win shootout with Eagles By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Zach Samson, Collins-Maxwell/Baxter, slips in behind three Saydel defenders for a basket in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Heart of Iowa Conference contest at Baxter. Samson and the Raiders edged out the visiting Eagles, 63-62.

BAXTER — With 2.1 seconds on the game clock, all they had to do is inbound the basketball successfully. Three timeouts later, Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s Raiders had to hold their breath as a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Saydel’s Alex Gustafson bounced up and off the rim. The Eagles had swooped up a steal on the inbounds-play by the Raiders. Gustafson’s shot was on target but a little long. The bounce off the rim gave the Raiders a 6362 victory. CMB won its second straight down-to-the-wire contest in Heart of Iowa Conference play. The Raiders improved to 9-3 on the season. “I missed some early ones but when it came down to it, I knew the team counted on me so I had to pull through,” said Austin Moorman, senior guard. who went 5-of9 from the free-throw line. Moorman sank two charities with eight seconds left in the game to put the margin at four, 63-59. “We came into the game with a bit of revenge on our mind. We had gone there (Saydel) to open the season and lost. We didn’t want to lose to them here at home,” Moor-

man added. Moorman had a game-hight 18 points for CMB. He knocked down four free throws in the final minute of the game, plus came up with a long defensive rebound late. Moorman responded to a drive to the basket by Saydel’s Kyle Walter with one of his own at the 19-second mark. “We didn’t get the ball in at the end but got a fortunate bounce on that final shot by them,” said Scott Brummel, CMB head coach. “How that play went was disappointing, but I was pleased with the way our guys battled in another close game. Playing and winning a close one Friday helped us tonight.” Brummel pointed to the fact that up and down the roster, CMB had players contribute in many ways to the win. Moorman also dished out four assists and got six rebounds. Tommy Galloway made two steals. Bryce Kemp, who had a dunk that turned into a three-point play early in the game to put the Raiders up 7-2, had a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Kemp also handed out three assists. Seth Balke came up with six defensive rebounds among his nine for the game. RAIDERS See Page 3B

GILBERT — Prairie CityMonroe’s basketball teams left Gilbert with a clean sweep on Tuesday night. The Mustang boys took out their Tiger counterparts, 62-51, to move to 10-0, while the Lady Mustangs had an easy, 54-27, win to move to 7-5. For the boys, sophomore Logan Gilman and senior Zach Uhlenhopp shouldered most of the scoring load. Gilman racked up 16 points on 8-for-15 shooting and had 11 rebound for a double-double. Uhlenhopp scored 15 points, going 6-for-10 from the field and added five assists. Seniors Devon Woody, Ryan Jennings and Dillon Bruxvoort each contributed to the win, as well. Woody had 11 points, nailing

three 3-point shots. Jennings scored nine points, and Bruxvoort had five points to go along with six rebounds. PCM shot 25-of-50 from the field, grabbed 28 rebounds and dished out 16 assists. For the girls, they made quck work of the Tigers. PCM got out to a 12-8 lead after the first quarter, and a second-quarter surge gave the Mustangs a 28-14 lead at the half. Another strong quarter allowed PCM to pull away even further, and the Mustangs earned just their second road victory on the season. Junior Courtney Van Houweling led the way for PCM with 14 points. Rachel Freland added 13. Abbi Gilson and Rachel Gulling each scored eight points for the Mustangs. PCM travels to Jeffereson on Friday to take on Greene County in a girl-boy doubleheader.

Newton JV and frosh sweep Indians By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer NEWTON — Newton’s Cardinal boys JV and freshmen basketball teams took out their Oskaloosa counterparts on Monday. The JV came away with a 53-33 win over the Indians, while the freshman secured a 53-32 victory. Jwan Roush led the Cardinal JV squad with 11 points to go along with four steals and five assists. Jordan Travis was second

among Cardinal scorers with 10. Travis also added five rebounds to lead the team. The win moved the JV team to 5-5, with a 2-3 record in LHC play. Morgan Maher had 15 points to lead the freshmen team. Josh Ventling was second among Cardinal scorers with 12. Newton’s ninth graders moved to 7-3 on the year, with a 4-1 record in the conference. Both team will take on Pella in Newton on Thursday.

Tigerhawk girls drop 10th straight By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer ALLEMAN — ColfaxMingo’s girls basketball team continues its search for the elusive first victory after taking a loss to North Polk’s Comets, 57-21, in Alleman on Tuesday. North Polk’s first-half scoring overwhelmed the Tigerhawks, and C-M was unable to eclipse in four quarters what the Comets accomplished in one. C-M trailed 22-3 after the first quarter and 47-13 at halftime. The Tigerhawks were able to subdue the scoring in the second half, but by then, the game was out of reach. McKenzie Cogley led the Tigerhawk girls with nine points. Jena Teed was second on the team with eight, and Breawna Schroder had four points. For the Comets, Megan Murphy put up 16 shots, sinking 10 of them for 23 points. Miranda Murphy had 14, and Macy Gill was third among North Polk scorers wtih 12. C-M heads to Nevada on Friday to take on the Cubs.

Girls: Four-game loss streak snapped Continued from Page 1B Jacobsen got things going in the fourth, hitting a shot from the free-throw line. Jenkins attacked the hoop on the next possession. She missed, but Gray was there to clean it up and give the Cards a 38-27 lead. Newton fought off any attempts Osky could muster of a rally by hitting free throws and rode the lead out until the final buzzer sounded. Jenkins led all scorers with 14. Jacobsen added 10 points, and Gray had

eight. For the Indians, Alexis Westercamp had a team-high 13 points. Taylor Richardson was second among Osky girls with nine. Newton heads to Pella on Friday as the team continues Little Hawkeye Conference play against the Little Dutch, who have won three straight games. Oskaloosa 8-9-10-10 — 37 Newton 7-17-10-11 — 45 Newton — Jenkins 14, Jacobsen 10, Grayn 8, Rhoads 5, Reynolds 4 Oskaloosa — Westercamp 13, Richardson 9, Asia Laudermilch 5, Brittany McQueen 4

Dustin Turner/Daily News Sophomore Hannah Rhoads pushes the pace for the Cards on the fast break. Rhoads picked up five points in the win over Oskaloosa on Tuesday.

Boys: Conference showdown with Little Dutch set for Friday Continued from Page 1B we kind of dug in a little bit defensively,” Wilkins said. “They hung around in that first half and hit some shots. We didn’t get out quite as much as we wanted to on some shooters, but we also wanted to keep it out of (Ryan Reiter’s) hands. He’s their best player, and we wanted to make sure he

wasn’t the one to beat us. We were going to make the rest of the team try to beat us, and I think we did a good job of that in the second half. Our offense got going again tonight, which is something we haven’t had recently, so that was nice to see.” Wood’s 28 led the Cards. Sturtz had 14 points. Shores was third among Cardinal scorers with 13. Gholson

had nine. Ryan Reiter gave the Cards trouble inside, but he was visibly exhausted by the end of the game and was unable to overcome the lack of production from the rest of the Indians squad. He finished with 18 points. Junior Ki-Jana DeJong had 15 for Osky. Newton came out in a 3-2 zone defense, looking to sag off the perimeter

and for Osky to take outside shots, which they were able to knock down early. The Cards got out to a 12-1 lead when Reiter and Carter Caden knocked down 3-pointers for the Indians. Wood’s hot streak fended off an Osky rally, and Newton led 20-12 after one. “We were trying to sag off and make them shoot threes. If they were going to try to go inside, we were going to be there on the catch and double and try to get it out right away. If they were going to beat us, they were going to have to do it by shooting outside shots. We didn’t want them to take advantage of their height,” Wilkins said. Osky began to get the ball inside and went on a 7-0 run to start the second quarter. Sturtz got out on the fastbreak and found Shores for a reverse layup to stop the rally. Shores picked off a pass on the next Osky trip down and found Wood in transition. Newton led 30-19 with 5:21 to go in the quarter when Wood picked off an attempted entry pass. He found Banfield in transition, but he was already too far under the basket to score. Banfield, without hesitation, whipped the ball around to Shores for the layup. Osky put together another run of inside scoring to end the half trailing by just six. Curtis Ryder attempted to jumpstart the Indians with some driving layups, which closed the Newton lead early in the third, but that’s when Newton went on its run and didn’t look back. Newton tries to keep its momentum going when the team heads to Pella on Friday.

Saydel rolls past CMB girls By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor BAXTER — Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s girls probably wished halftime hadn’t come in Tuesday’s home game against Saydel. The Raiders were in the game — led it early — against the Eagles, trailing by five points at the break. Nothing went the Raiders’ way in the third quarter. Saydel reeled off 14 unanswered points to blow the game wide open. That 18-3 run in the third quarter put the Eagles in control and on their way to a 49-29 win. “It is difficult to win ballgames when your top three scorers are in foul trouble and have to sit for extended periods of time,” said Jamie Zabel, CMB head coach. “If you take out the last three minutes of the second quarter and the first five (minutes) of the third, we played them even up.” CMB got off to a great start in front of the home crowd. Lexi Breon scored the first five points — three coming on a 3-pointer — to put the Raiders up 5-1. Abbie Haupert, who drew double and triple teams all night inside, sank one of two free throws and CMB led 6-1 with 3:53 left in the first period.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News At left, battling for a rebound is Mikayla Eslinger (42) of Collins-Maxwell/Baxter and Saydel’s Cassie Chubb (31) in Tuesday’s Heart of Iowa Conference game in Baxter. Saydel used a 24-0 run spanning the end of the second quarter and first six minutes of the third quarter to push past CMB for a 49-29 victory.

A three-point play by Breon with 24.5 seconds on the clock produced a 10-8 lead for the Raiders. CMB stayed on top through the first half of the second quarter. Haupert scored on back-to-back baskets and CMB’s lead was 17-12 at the halfway mark. Saydel closed out the first half with 10 straight points to lead 22-17 at the break. Then came the big third quarter by the Eagles. Haupert and point guard Mackenzie Schmitz sat on the bench with Zabel for a long time in the third quarter. Both players had four fouls. “I really thought we struggled with their defensive pressure, something that is uncharacteristic of this team. We will be working hard to change the way we prepare for teams and focus on the remaining games on the schedule,” Zabel said. “We are also looking to make improvements to make a deep district run in February.” The Raiders shot just 28.5 percent, 10of-35, from the field on the night. Breon led all scorers with 12 points. Haupert had nine points and nine rebounds. Mikayla Eslinger pulled down seven rebounds and Bridget Hurley had six rebounds. Breon had three assists. Saydel was led by Brooklyn Allgood with 11 points. Cassie Chubb added 10 and Lizzy Miklus had nine points. The Raiders dropped to 4-10 on the season. They go to Gilbert Friday.

Raiders: CMB boys get the job done in close Heart of Iowa contest with Eagles Continued from Page 1B Balke’s 3-pointer at the 4:30 mark of the fourth quarter tied the game at 5353. Balke hit three treys in the game on his way to 15 points. Patrick Girard came off the bench and got several deflections and scored four points. “I didn’t like giving up a 10-point lead several times in the game. I was proud that our guys kept working when we did get behind late. Both teams did a good job staying in the game, which made for a close game,” Brummel said. The Raiders bolted to an early lead, but the Eagles came back to tie the game at 13-13. Samson’s basket broke the tie as the teams went back-andforth. It was Girard’s buzzer-beating long field goal to give CMB a 21-19 lead at the end of the first quarter. Gustafson nailed a 3-pointer to open the second period. Gustafson and Walter each finished with 14 points for the Eagles. Gustafson hit four 3-pointers in the game and Walter had two shots from beyond the arc. A steal by Kemp led to a bucket by Samson to trigger an 11-0 run by the Raiders. They led 32-22 with 3:52 left in the first half. The Eagles closed the gap to three, 34-31, by the break. Saydel went on a 9-5 surge to take a 40-39 lead by he 4:52 mark of the third quarter. The Eagles outscored the Raiders 19-13 in the period to gain a 50-47 advantage heading into the fourth quarter. Kemp’s three-point play with 7:07 left in the game knotted the score, 5050. A nice dump pass down low from

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News CMB’s Austin Moorman (2) drives between Saydel’s Clayton Sommers and Alex Gustafson (13) late in the game and was fouled. Moorman sank free throws down the stretch to help the Raiders beat the visiting Eagles 63-62 Tuesday night in Baxter.

Kemp to Samson produced two free throws by Samson to put the Raiders up 57-55 with 1:55 on the clock. “We’ve been very good with the high-low plays this season. Bryce is able to take the ball up from either side of the basket and he made a nice pass to Zach on that play,” Brummel said. Then came the flurry of scoring

down the stretch with the Raiders coming out with the victory. CMB shot 46 percent, 22-of-47, from the field but Saydel hit 24-of-46 for 52 percent. The Raiders cashed in on 15-of-22 free throw attempts to the Eagles’ 9-of-15. The Eagles got another 14 points from Mattingly Stone.

NFL: Four teams battle this weekend for the two Super Bowl spots Continued from Page 1B and New England, which beat Indianapolis 43-22 on Saturday night. The Broncos (14-3) opened as 6 1⁄2- point favorites for the game at Denver. “That’s two of the greats,” Denver wide receiver Eric Decker said. “It’s going to be talked about a lot throughout the week.” Manning and Brady have squared off 14 times throughout their careers, with the Patriots quarterback holding a 10-4 edge in the head-to-head matchup, including a 34-31 overtime victory in November. They each have a win against the other in the AFC championship game: Brady in the 2003 playoffs and Manning in the 2006 postseason with Indianapolis. And the winner went on to win the Super Bowl each time. But, it’s not necessarily the same old story this time around. Both the Broncos and Patriots have been winning with balanced offenses, relying not only on the strong arms of their record-breaking quarterbacks but also on their running games. Manning was 25 of 36 for 230

yards and two TDs, but the Broncos controlled the clock on the ground. After gaining just 18 yards against San Diego last month, the Broncos ran for 133 yards, including 82 by Knowshon Moreno, whose 3-yard TD run put them ahead 24-7 with 8:12 left. The Chargers rallied to get within a score late, but Manning completed a pair of key third-down passes in the final minutes to prevent San Diego from getting a final chance. “They’re a great team, they had a big win (Saturday) night,” Manning said of the Patriots. “We’re going to enjoy this one tonight, start to work on them tomorrow and I know it’ll be a heck of a game.” At Foxborough, Mass., LeGarrette Blount carried the Patriots (13-4) to their third straight AFC title game with four touchdown runs against the Colts. Stevan Ridley added two rushing scores, giving New England six TDs — and none by Brady. “The way our defense is getting the ball for us and, really, what we’ve done the last three or four weeks (with) the running game has just been awesome,”

Brady said. “Hopefully, we can do it next week, too.” In the NFC, the 49ers and Seahawks are all set to play in the latest chapter in one of the NFL’s budding — and bitter — rivalries. The Seahawks (14-3) opened as 3-point favorites for the game at Seattle against the 49ers (14-4), who defeated the Carolina Panthers 23-10 on Sunday. On Saturday, Marshawn Lynch ran for a franchise playoff-record 140 yards and two touchdowns and Seattle’s defense flustered Drew Brees and New Orleans in a 23-15 victory. The top-seeded Seahawks advanced to the NFC title game for the second time, and first since the 2005 playoffs. “We haven’t done anything yet,” quarterback Russell Wilson said. “That’s our goal. We have 60 minutes of football left.” San Francisco, which lost last year to Baltimore, is looking for a return trip to the Super Bowl. And lots of hard hits and plenty of jawing might be expected in this latest matchup with the Seahawks. “I think we’re the two teams everyone was looking at from the be-

ginning,” 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said. “It’s going to be a knockdown, drag-out game.” Count on it. The previous few games between the NFC West rivals have been full of contempt, with shoving, pushing and arguing spicing things up. Even the coaches don’t care for each other. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh have been rivals dating to their days as opponents in the old Pac-10. In 2009, after Harbaugh’s Stanford team ran up the score on Carroll’s Southern California squad in a 55-21 rout, the two met at midfield and an annoyed Carroll barked, “What’s your deal?” That’s carried over to the NFL — and it might get ramped up again during the week. “We’re healthy, we’re a great team and we’re willing to do whatever it takes to get that ring,” 49ers running back Frank Gore said. “We’re playing great ball.” Good thing, since the 49ers have committed seven turnovers and been outscored 71-16 in their past two trips to Seattle, including a 29-3 Week 2 loss in September.

There’s no place like home under the full Cancer moon. Where do you feel safe enough to relax and be totally yourself? Interactions will resonate with maternal dynamics, having the feeling of a reunion of mother and child. For some, it’s a cathartic moon and the emotions run freely. Offer and accept comfort.

best work. When it all comes down to the wire, you’ll be in excellent form.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 15). You’ll circulate in a high-powered group. In the first quarter of the year, you could participate in a battle of sorts, but you likely will show your strength by avoiding fighting. May brings a big decision and the glorious fallout: Your life is your creation. In August, the focus is on home and the people who make it joyful. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 3, 22, 40 and 16.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes it can be challenging to maintain enthusiasm for your daily responsibilities and routines, but today a funny new force in your life will shed some sunshine on it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You like those last minutes of a project, right before the bell rings. The quickening of your pulse makes you do your

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t have to have an answer for everyone the moment they ask something of you. Making them wait is an excellent strategy. Your typical thoughtfulness plays well in this strategy.

will be a bit of a blur. Long, languorous evening hours will help you unwind from the madness. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Only time can tell whether an unwelcome development will be extremely lucky for you in the end. You have every reason to stay upbeat and hopeful for the best possible outcome. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a talent for creating illusions that will enhance your image. Everybody does this to some degree, but you openly admit it. That’s what makes you relatable. People drop their pretenses around you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Watch out. When you say “I am,” whatever follows is a declaration with staying power. Perhaps the safest route is not to claim anything at all. Let them figure it out for themselves.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re a problem-solving machine today. Some problems are solved through bold, swift action and others through sensitivity and awareness. You can change your style on a dime.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As it is with moving vehicles, the faster you’re going the longer it’s going to take to stop. The day

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is normal to encounter inner resistance when taking on a job that requires a great deal of will-

power. Distractions seem shinier. Goals go soft. You feel tired. Fight on. This is how you develop muscle tone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Since friends have some mighty strange ideas about what you need to do to stay healthy, wealthy and wise. The best rule to follow is: Don’t listen to friends. Stick with the professionals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re moving fast and handling what’s in front of you. To the innocent bystander, you look like a person making it up in the moment. What they don’t know is that it’s all part of your grand plan. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Safe talk leads nowhere. Dangerous talk also leads nowhere, as it causes people to feel defensive and closed. The best conversations will combine the tame with the wild unpredictably. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
