Community gathers in pride to ‘Get To Know Newton’ By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer “We have this thing called ‘Red Pride’ it runs rampant around Newton,” Ty Rushing said in the city’s new branding video. This classic sense of pride washed over the DMACC campus for the community rally for the new branding of “Get to Know Newton.” The new brand was introduced by Nick Westergaard, chief brand strategist and

founder of Brand Driven Digital. Westergaard has been the branding consultant behind the new marketing initiative for Newton. “I think that this is a real exciting message for the City of Newton,” Westergaard said. “It’s self explanatory, which is what works about it [the branding]. It is what we need to do to start conversations to invite people to learn all of these things that we know, but haven’t been able to share.” Brand Driven Digital has also been

hosting the Social Media Lunch and Learns, which will be held throughout the rest of the year. “The Social Media Lunch and Learns is a major part of this new branding launch because its a tool for local business owners to better tell their story for those coming to town get to know your business,” Westergaard said.

Ty Rushing/Daily News Doug Bishop and Keith Thorpe, members of the Jasper County Veterans Memorial Committee, take a look at the site that will host a portion of the upcoming Jasper County Veterans Memorial Complex on the south lawn of the courthouse. The committee is hosting a rib dinner on Saturday at the American Legion to raise additional funds.

For 10 bucks, you can stuff yourself with ribs and support a good cause. The Jasper County Veterans Memorial Fund Committee will be holding a memorial supper fundraiser and auction at Newton American Legion Post 111 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. All proceeds will go towards the construction of the upcoming Jasper County Veterans Memorial Complex on the courthouse lawn. Doug Bishop, who serves on the memorial committee, said this fundraiser and others they have scheduled later will ensure that the memorial is ready for show by its July 4 unveiling. “We’re dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s,” Bishop said. “This is an experience that hasn’t happened for 20 years for Jasper County veterans. The last memorial was dedicated on July 4, 1994. We’ve taken it a step further this time. We’ve made arrangements to have every veteran from Jasper County — who was killed in action — their names will be listed for free.” The new monuments will feature a giant rock, similar to “The Freedom Rock” on the east lawn of the courthouse. On the south lawn, just to the east of the current veteran memorial, a winged-style wall, with each wing being 16-feet long and containing memorial bricks and a black granite center, was originally planned. The design, however, may

be altered. “We had made plans for 350 bricks, we have 702,” Bishop said. “So we’ve had to regroup and reprocess the actual foundations of the wall. But that’s a good issue to have. We are going to have over 700 Jasper County veterans represented on the wall.” The supper, which Bishop described as county-style rib dinner and the auction are going to be key in keeping everything on track with the memorial. Some of the items going to auction include quilts donated by the Peacemakers Quilt Guild, a leather biking jacket donated by 2013 Freedom Flight honoree Don Etter, a Kyle Harvick wall tin, military signs, a new office chair from Forbes Office Solutions and a Minnesota Vikings sideline jacket. The committee will also team up with the American Legion Freedom Riders for a poker run in May, hold a second chance prom in April and will be accepting sponsorships for the memorial. Sponsorships cost $500 and donors will get their name or organizations name on a bronze plaque engraved in the memorial. “We would especially like to thank the volunteers who have given their time on this,” Bishop said. “Patriotism is alive and well in Jasper County and we are going to do our best to keep that going.”

IYC to host annual Synergy Concert The Iowa Youth Chorus will host its annual Synergy Concert on Sunday, March 2, at Central Presbyterian Church, 3829 Grand Ave. in Des Moines. The concert begins at 4 p.m. and features the Concert Choir, Chorale and Chamber Singers. The Synergy Concert is an annual collaboration between the chorus and another cultural organization from the greater Des Moines area. This year, the chorus is joining forces with the Ankeny Community Chorus, under the direction of Michael Gossen. Made up of 80-plus adult singers, the Ankeny Community Chorus is dedicated to sharing rich and diverse musical selections. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with the Ankeny chorus,” IYC Artistic/Executive Director Kristen Stanton said. “It is so valuable to our young singers to see that they are developing a skill that can last a lifetime. And the fact that two of our own choruses rehearse in Ankeny makes the synergistic relationship that much more special.” The theme of the concert is “Music of the Masters” and will include works by Bach, Mozart, Britten, Elgar and more. The concert will culminate with both choirs performing four movements of Antonio Vivaldi’s “Magnificat.” There is no admission charge to the concert; a free will offering will be taken to benefit Iowa Youth Chorus programming and scholarships. The nonprofit Iowa Youth Chorus was founded in 1981 to encourage and foster a life long love of music in children. As the premier youth choral organization of central Iowa, young singers come from every suburb and surrounding communities. Don’t get out of the car. Let us get it for you! Use our drive-up window.

Iowa House OKs ban on remote abortion pill system DES MOINES (AP) — Legislation banning the remote distribution of abortion pills to pregnant women in Iowa was backed by the Iowa House on Tuesday. In a 55-42 vote, the Republican-majority House endorsed the bill. It now moves to the Democratic-controlled Senate, where it is unlikely to advance further. The bill would prohibit the use of webcams or teleconferencing as a means of dispensing abortion-inducing drugs to pa-

tients in remote locations. Under the legislation, women seeking an abortion would have to be in the presence of a physician when receiving the pills. Republican Rep. Kevin Koester, of Ankeny, said the goal of the legislation was to block a health practice he described as unsafe. “The bill ensures that women have the best possible standard of care and we take one unsafe procedure off the table,” But Democratic Rep.

Wessel-Kroeschell, of Ames, argued that the bill is an attempt to restrict access to abortion in Iowa. She noted that no complaints have been filed with the Iowa Board of Medicine over this practice. “This bill has nothing to do with safety. This bill has everything to do with ending abortions in Iowa,” Wessel-Kroeschell said. She later added: “What I want for women in Iowa is choice and safety and this bill offers neither.”

nition as a sharpshooter. Upon his return from Europe he got a job with Western Electric, thus beginning a 40-year career in telecommunications. It was an exciting time to work in the communication field and Brad’s ability to install new technology made him highly sought after. For 15 years he traveled from coast to coast, receiving special military clearance for his talents, updating and replacing telephone office equipment. Along the way he also perfected his peerless cooking skills. In 1974, Brad ended up in Fairbanks, Alaska. It was here, working on the Alyeska oil pipeline, where his cooking and adventurous lifestyle won over the affections of Beverly Jo Malloy, who came over for dinner and never left – thus they wed in 1978. Two children soon followed: Chad and Brett. Like

their father, the boys enjoyed a life of travel and adventure. In 1989, the Smiths settled in Lebanon, Oregon, where Brad worked for Telephone Utilities (now Century Tel) until his retirement in 1999. Not one to suffer fools, Brad carried with him a take on life informed by experience, a mind that was always open and a wit that was always sharp. His polished Cessna 170B airplane was his best friend for 40 years and he was often seen cruising in his vintage VW camper or on one of his three motorcycles. Brad’s parents and a brother, Ronald Smith, preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife, Beverly, of Lebanon; sons, Chad and Brett Smith both of Portland; sister Judith and husband Alan Koch of Newton, Iowa; foster daughter Jennifer Oh and husband Jonathan Stone of London, England; two nieces and seven nephews.

Feb. 5, 2014 Bradford M. Smith, 76, of Lebanon, formerly of Newton, Iowa, passed away, succumbing to cancer on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014. Brad’s story began in Grinnell, Iowa, June 1, 1937. Born to Theodore Merle Smith and Agnes Oliva Ferneau and raised on the Midwest plains, he was taught to shoot, fish and live off the land at a young age. It was in the town of Newton, Iowa, where Brad, his brother Ronnie and his sister Judy spent their younger days. When Brad graduated from Newton High School in 1955, he, like most boys upon receiving independence, made his way to sunny southern California. There, Brad pursued a passion in aviation, securing licenses for both airplanes and helicopters. If it flew, he could fly it. He spent his California days cruising the streets in hot rods and motorcycles until he was drafted into the Army in 1959 and shipped to Europe where his rifle skills, passed down to him from his father, earned him wide recog-

She was a member of the First Christian Church in Newton and belonged to P.E.O.  James would precede Willie in death on March 13, 1982. On July 28, 1984, Willie was united in marriage with Marvin L.

Letters to the Editor

Turn off TV, computer; spend time with family To the editor: I watched a program on TV a short time ago about three generations of men working together in Texas. It was a tool shop started by their family more than 100 years ago. This is something we don’t see much of anymore. At 9:30 every day in this tool shop, it was Soda and Peanut Time. Nowadays, it’s all about cell phones, computers and going 100 miles per hour. Put down those cell phones. Shut off that computer. Grab a soda and a bag of peanuts and talk to a family member about your day, or life. I know I will. Leni VanWyk Newton

Say No to Big New World Order’s hidden agenda To the editor: Again we the taxpayers are being thrown under the bus. Call, write, email: vote “No” on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. No TPP. Large corporations are underwriting and giving away America. Like NAFTA was a huge mistake, and have they repealed that? Harry Reid stood alone against NAFTA and again alone against TPP. Please do not allow big business, at our expense, take what little we have left of the middle class. Do you really want the haves to become have-nots, or the rich to become the poor? Don’t whine later. You have a choice now. It’s speak-up-or-shut-up time. Say “No” to the hidden agenda of “Big” New World Order, which is trying to put deals together for the few rich at the top. No! No! No! Sherman & Susan Swank Newton

Ty’s Take

The return of Princess Ty It’s amazing the power little girls hold over grown men. As men, we are supposed to be these monosyllabic, ferocious, masculine machines made of excessive body hair and flesh. Yet, there I was on Saturday, for the second By Ty Rushing time since July, posing for pic- Daily News Staff Writer tures with a tiara on my head, a green wand in hand and having a good time at a princess-themed event. What can I say? Little girls are my kryptonite and I look good in a tiara. While some of you may laugh at this image or call me “Princess Tyra,” as staff writer Zach Johnson did, I have no regrets and would gladly do it again in a heartbeat. And p.s. Zach — my official princess name is not Princess Tyra, it’s just Princess Ty. Royal titles aside, I have to say this past weekend may have been the most fun I have ever had on weekend duty. Don’t forget, I’ve covered Thunder Nites, Iowa Speedway events and several fairs and festivals. The wholesomeness and innocence of everything is what sucked me in. Princess Ty made his return when I covered the Princess Workshop put on by the Fairy Godmothers of Newton and watched the transformations occur on the faces and in the demeanors of so many little girls. A few weeks ago, when I interviewed the Fairy Godmothers organization, they all told me that was their favorite part and I can see why. I saw so many little girls start off being so shy and apprehensive when they arrived at the nail station and then I watched them become more confident and self-assured as they started twirling their dresses grinning ear to ear and swinging their freshly styled hair around by the time the whole process was completed. They may not have actual pow-

ers, but the Fairy Godmothers really do some magical things. One of my favorite moments of the workshop occurred when Abby Chance, a certified D-I-V-A and local celebrity, informed me after she had her makeover done, that she and Princess Ty were taking a picture because “she is not the girl to be ignored.” Abby’s only about 7 years old, but this is her world and we just live in it, something I’m sure her parents Tammy and Jason would agree with. I cannot express much fun I had at that workshop and I’m sure anyone’s heart would’ve melted had they been there. However, the workshop was just the first part in my total immersion into the world of princesses on Saturday. The main course of the evening was the Princess and Papa’s Ball itself. I showed up around 6:30 and my jaw dropped when I got to the parking lot of Newton Senior High School. I’ve been to NHS for plays, community activities, beauty pageants, big volleyball and basketball games, but I have never seen it so packed. With an estimated crowd of

more than 600, I was blown away with how big it was. Seeing so many happy girls with their dads/escorts was a pretty cool, and brings home my earlier point about little girls having power over grown men. At this dance, it seems every guy had his guard down and was just trying to have fun with the girls. You had politicians doing the “ChaCha Slide,” county officials wearing pink ties and even the biggest guys in the room doing their best twostep and posing for pictures. Events like this are great ways to showcase how tight-knit our community is and how important it is that Newtonians help support Newton. Neither the workshop nor the ball would have been so successful without the people who came out to support them. I want to thank all of Fairy Godmothers who donated their time and efforts to make the workshop happen and I applaud the NHS Student Council for holding their great event. This was a Saturday I was more than happy to work. Like I said earlier, I look pretty good in a tiara.

Get to know Newton Checklist

Continued from Page 1A Mayor Mike Hansen drove the crowd into a frenzy to open the rally. Hansen challenged the citizens of Newton to find out what they didn’t know about their community. “I am delighted in the numbers that have shown up tonight to learn about the branding effort and what folks in the community have been working on along with Nick Westergaard and his staff at Brand Driven Digital, Cathy Rickers and her staff at Art A La Carte,” Hansen said. The branding rally launched several marketing tools, which are now available to the public. A new website was launched, www.gettoknownewton.com; a new quarterly magazine “Get to Know Newton” was released to the public; an assortment of novelty items are also available to help tell the story of Newton. At the end of the presentation, Hansen gave the citizens a task as it came to launching the new brand. “I charged everyone in attendance tonight as “Get To Know Newton” ambassadors, and I hope they, and everyone else, will go forth with that message and will not only spread it here in this community, having the conversations that now we’re going out of the community and let everyone know in the immediate Central Iowa and Iowa area what great things we have going on in our community.”

FAMILY CIRCUS

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Girlfriend staying as family’s guest deserves more respect DEAR ABBY: Last August my husband and I allowed our son’s 17-year-old girlfriend, “Lindsay,” to move into our home from out of state because she needs to live here for a year to establish residency for school. She’s a wonderful girl, mature, social and helpful. My problem is my other sons (ages 18 and 14) are very angry that we have allowed a “stranger” to move in. My 18-year-old is a college student who lives on campus an hour away, but comes home on weekends. He and his younger brother feel I show favoritism to Lindsay and make frequent comments about the non-family member. They worry that I’m spending money on her even though they know her mom sends her money. I’ll admit it has been nice to have a girl around. My boys sleep half the day away on weekends, but she gets up and is happy to run errands with me. I still include my sons in many activities without Lindsay, as I always have, and I did not anticipate this hostility. I feel bad for her because they make little attempt to hide it. My son loves his girlfriend, and I want her to feel comfortable and welcome without alienating my other sons. Help! — MOM OF THREE SONS DEAR MOM: You and your husband are the parents, which means you are supposed to be running this “asylum” — not the inmates. The decision about who should or should not be a guest in your home is not up to your jealous older and younger boys, who appear to be suffering from a form of “sibling” rivalry. As a guest in your home, Lindsay should be treated with respect, and it’s not happening. You should insist upon it, and if your wishes are not complied with, there should be consequences. DEAR ABBY: My husband of five years has three children from previous marriages. Earlier this year he learned some disturbing information about his youngest child. He opted not to share the information with me so as not to violate her privacy. I found out about it a few

weeks ago, and I am deeply hurt that I was excluded. I feel I have never been included as a true part of the family, and this is just another example. He feels his explanation justifies his actions and that should be the end of it. I am concerned that he will keep other things from me he feels are none of my business in the future. I am not at all comfortable with this situation. Do you think I am overreacting? — STEPMONSTER IN THE SOUTH DEAR STEPMONSTER: Yes, I do. Your husband decided not to discuss something with you that he felt would violate his daughter’s privacy. Much as you might like to, you can’t push your way into being accepted. If relationships are going to happen, they must evolve naturally. So calm down and stop personalizing this. It isn’t a threat to your marriage unless you make it so. DEAR ABBY: In this day and age, with computers and the ability to backspace, cut, paste and delete so easily, why do you still use a P.S.? Seems to me that P.S. needs to be used only with handwritten letters. — CANDICE IN PHOENIX DEAR CANDICE: Mmmm ... not so fast. The majority of my readers communicate with me via the Internet, as you did. They use P.S. to indicate that what they are saying is an afterthought and so do I in some of my responses.

Cardinals overpower Indians in LHC play By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

OSKALOOSA — Newton’s Cardinals made it rain threes Tuesday night. Oskaloosa’s Indians got caught in the downpour, losing 72-49. After finally gaining the lead in the second quarter, 20-16, Newton used its ability to hit the long outside shot to drown out any thoughts of a win by their hosts. Connor Gholson hit back-toback threes for the Cardinals to increase their advantage. Coming out of the break, the CardiJocelyn Sheets/Daily News Reaching out to snag a rebound is Newton’s Daquan Allen (22) in a home game last nals drained 5-of-6 week.

Tyler Wood connected from long range and Gholson’s third 3-pointer of the night, made it 49-30 with 2:49 on the clock. The Cardinals had 10 3-pointers in the game. They had a slow start offensively against the Indians, trailing 11-7, at the end of the first quarter. Newton picked up the pace in the second period. Wood scored in transition and a layup by Joseph Banfield tied the game at 11-11. Oskaloosa’s Ryan Reiter put his team back in front with a basket, but it didn’t last long. Nick Easley drove to the basket, scored and was fouled. Easley completed the three-

Cardinals fall to energized Oskaloosa girls By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor O S K A L O O S A — Teams hungry for a win, especially those on long losing streaks, are dangerous. Newton’s Cardinal girls found that out Tuesday night. The Cardinals were steamrolled, 52-38, by Oskaloosa’s Indians in Little Hawkeye Conference play on the Indians’ court. The Indians had won their season opener, but nothing else this season. They broke a 17-game losing streak and notched their first LHC win at the expense of the visiting Cardinals. “We struggled like we’ve never done before this season,” Newton head coach Brandon Sharp said. “It was a very sloppy game and they came out with energy and we didn’t.” Newton dropped to 5-8 in Little Hawkeye Conference play and 5-15 overall. The Cardinals come home for their season finale Friday. They host Pella, the team they play in the first round of Class 4A playoffs next week, in conference play. Shelby Gray scored to tie the game at 2-2 and Lizzie Stock netted a long two-point shot to put Newton up 4-2. After that it was all Oskaloosa led by Taylor Richardson.

Richardson became the thorn in Newton’s side. She swiped the basketball and scored to tie the game then scored the go-ahead basket with three minutes left in the first quarter. Oskaloosa never trailed again, but it wasn’t a pretty game. It was filled with turnovers by both teams. The teams combined to shoot 59 free throws. The Indians cashed in 18 attempts and the Cardinals downed 13. Newton could not find an offensive flow — not until the fourth quarter and by then the Cardinals trailed 28-16. The Cardinals scored just nine points in the first half. Oskaloosa went into halftime up by 10 points, 19-9. The Cardinals did not have a field goal in the second half until late in the third quarter. They scored five points from the freethrow line in the period. Alex Hutchinson’s basket as time was winding down in the third made it 28-16. Newton had the basketball to open the fourth quarter. It missed on a 3-pointer and Richardson went the other way for a three-point play. That’s Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News how the Cardinals’ night Newton’s Sydney Jenkins (10) gets fouled as she puts up a shot went. NEWTON See Page 8A

point play, giving the Cardinals a 14-13 lead. Banfield’s basket gave Newton a three-point cushion. Gholson’s treys pushed Newton to a 26-16 lead with a little more than two minutes remaining in the second quarter. A steal and layup by Jwan Roush just before halftime handed the Cardinals a 32-22 lead at the break. The Cardinals quickened their offensive pace again to begin the second half. They delivered the long-range shots early. Sturtz began the volley to push the lead to 35-24. Newton nailed CARDINALS See Page 8A

Tigerhawks come up short By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor GILBERT — It was within reach again for Colfax-Mingo’s Tigerhawks. Down by two points, the Tigerhawks had the basketball under their own basket with seven seconds remaining in Tuesday’s game. They missed a shot. Gilbert grabbed the rebound. “We fouled them on the rebound and they converted free throws,” said John Borts, Tigerhawk head coach, following a 5753 loss at Gilbert. “I was really proud of our guys’ effort, considering we played Monday night also.” Colfax-Mingo remains winless for the season. The Tigerhawks have one remaining regular-season game Thursday at Pleasantville. After trailing 35-23 at halftime, the Tigerhawks came out with more intensity in the second half. “We forced some turnovers and got out in transition for some easy baskets,” Borts said. “Our guys gave a tremendous effort in the second half. We did a nice job defending the three-point line in the second half.” The Tigerhawks trimmed the deficit to seven points, 44-37, heading into the final eight minutes of play. With two minutes remaining in the game, ColfaxMingo was down by just one point, 52-51. C-M See Page 8A

Lynnville-Sully squads sweep past Tri-County in SICL action By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor THORNBURG — LynnvilleSully’s Hawks played on the road in a South Iowa Cedar League doubleheader Tuesday. The Hawk girls produced a “bounce” for themselves as they head into playoffs next week and the boys won for the second time in two nights. Lynnville-Sully’s girls wasted little time in taking control of the league contest against host Tri-County. The Hawks led the Trojans 18-8 after one quarter of play, going on to post a 6735 win. Lynnville-Sully’s boys worked through fatigue to down Tri-County, 48-32. The Hawks used a 10-4 surge to open the game and never let up, leading 24-14 at halftime. The fifth-ranked Hawk girls finished the regular season at 18-3. They host a second-round game in Class 1A Region 5 next Tuesday . The Hawk girls play the winner of MelcherDallas and Tri-County, a game set for Thursday. “We played a much better second

half, as I thought we were sharper on offense,” L-S girls’ head coach Jerry Hulsing said. “In the second half, our pressure caused some turnovers that we were able to convert into easy baskets. It was good to get a chance to play all our kids.” Cullen Cassie Cullen had a game-high 27 points for the Hawk girls, plus controlled six rebounds. Rachel Van Wyk led the rebounding effort for Lynnville-Sully with nine boards and she scored 12 points. Lyndsay Terpstra chipped in with 10 points and five steals. Lynnville-Sully shot 44 percent, 25-of-57, from the field and downed 16-of-32 free throw attempts. TriCounty was 10-of-29 from the field for 34.5 percent and tossed in 15-of26 charity shots. Jade Van Rees and Madison Rasmusson each dished out four assists

for the Hawks. After having 32 turnovers in a loss to B-G-M Friday, the Hawks took care of the basketball much better against the Trojans. They only turned it over 11 times. Katlyn Little led the Trojans with 13 points. THE HAWK BOYS improved to 16-4 overall and 15-4 in league play with Tuesday’s win. They finish their regular season Friday at home against English Valleys. “This was our fourth game in six days. It wasn’t always pretty tonight, but the guys kept working,” Hawk boys’ head coach Nick Harthoorn. “We didn’t allow any of their players to get into double figures. We need to get some rest and come back with a little more energy Friday night.” The Hawks won all four games they’ve played over Hofer that span. They

played back-to-back nights this week. Darin Hofer poured in 14 points against Tri-County and Kyle Van Dyke had 10 points. Hofer grabbed seven rebounds and Van Dyke had six rebounds. Sage Ehresman Van Dyke dished out five assists and made three steals. Austin Blythe and Tyler Lally each had eight points for the Trojans.

NHS boys’ JV lose, frosh win By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Newton’s junior varsity boys thought they had won on a buzzer-beatting shot by Jwan Roush Monday night.

As Mercury backs out of Pisces and into Aquarius, his agenda changes. He’s no longer concerned with the actions that will build spiritual karma; instead he’s on a mission to help his fellow man (which in turn can’t help but affect the status of his soul). What’s next is a review of how we’ve helped people in the past and which actions bear repeating.

remedy for what ails you and afflicts others, too.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 12). You grow in awareness of your being. Your spiritual connections will be felt profoundly this year, and you’ll follow your intuition to financial opportunity, too. March changes your professional goals. Family successes are yours in May. You will streamline and beautify your life and possessions July through September. Aries and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 14, 38, 44 and 27.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who play it safe are technically still playing, but if you have anything to do with picking the team, they won’t be playing with you. You want to be in the game with fellow risk takers.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your laughter gets others laughing. It represents togetherness and a shared point of view. It will be the

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some ask for what they need. Others demand it or accuse those who aren’t giving accordingly of being selfish. The ones who are acting up aren’t necessarily doing so inappropriately. Unfortunately, asking is not always enough.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fixing an ailing relationship of your own might be difficult but is entirely within the realm of possibility. Fixing someone else’s ailing relationship is totally impossible, so don’t waste your time trying. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some elements of your domestic scene are not working well. You’ll

get the chance to revise, eliminate and improve. You are powerful, and there is more within your realm of control than there was before.

aesthetic sensors are so apparent that you have a hard time even looking at ugly things. You want everything to be as beautiful as it is inside your mind.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A fun secret will be revealed. This one will bring new information about someone you thought you knew well. It might have to do with a crush or a surprising study or interest.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not be highly motivated by the job before you, but the good news is that there is plenty of reason to take it anyway. For starters, it will free you up to do the thing you really want to be doing!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You feel it’s your responsibility to provide excitement, entertainment, warmth and electricity to a lackluster scene. Before you take over, consider whether you would be better off just starting a totally new scene from scratch.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No matter how fast you are, you can’t win the race if you don’t cross the finish line. The one who finishes a job will get full credit, whether finishing entailed 10 or 90 percent of the effort.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t confuse publicity with facts. Also, be careful not to mistake people for the roles they are playing. You’ll make the smartest decisions when you base them on the underlying truth of things.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your reality conflicts with another person’s, and that’s something simply to accept. No one is right, and no one is crazy, either. Each person is entitled to his or her own point of view.

First Baptist Church holds group for couples

McFate hopes his book can help churches solve financial, attendance issues By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer

UCC hosts documentary and discussion panel Kate Malott/Daily News Author and retired Pastor Warren McFate holds his book “A Formula For Your Church To Increase Its Financial Resources.”

bate for theology. Its intended to revitalize the local church,” McFate said. McFate turned 93 years old and has seen the best of times and the worst of times as it comes to local churches. “It’s been instrumental in my journey because I felt there was not just a need, but a growing need. I felt the need wasn’t being filled,” McFate said. McFate’s dream is for someone to take this book and continue developing it long after he is gone. “Forget who I am, try to figure out whether or not this has value for them. If it doesn’t glorify God and help people forget it because this is not an ego thing. I am too old to worry or even care about fame and fortune because it was never my purpose or intention,” McFate said. If McFate’s dream was to come true and someone was to develop his idea to gain fame and fortune, McFate said it would be a blessing in his eyes. “Praise the Lord and sing the doxology,” McFate said. “It’s not about me, or it’s not what I am going to do even, its about solving the problem. It would be a blessing for the kingdom, but also for the people who will be helped from it.”

Muslims flee Central African Republic’s capital BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) — Thousands of Muslims climbed aboard trucks protected by heavily armed Chadian soldiers in a mass exodus Friday from the capital of Central African Republic. Their flight follows months of escalating attacks on anyone perceived as supporting a now-defunct Muslim rebel government blamed for scores of atrocities during its rule of this predominantly Christian country. In The Hague, Netherlands, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court announced a preliminary investigation into potential war crimes or crimes against humanity in Central African Republic, saying the crisis has “gone from bad to worse” since September. Along the streets of Bangui, crowds of Christians gathered to cheer the convoy’s departure

for the neighboring country of Chad, which is mostly Muslim. It was an acrid farewell to their Muslim neighbors who had in some cases lived alongside Christians for generations here and have few ties to Chad. The dangers for those who stayed behind were clear: One man who tumbled from the precariously overloaded trucks was brutally slain, witnesses said. “He didn’t even have the time to fall — he landed into the hands of the angry mob who then lynched him at the scene,” said Armando Yanguendji, a resident of the Gobongo district who witnessed the horror. Another truck in the same neighborhood escaped attack from Christian militiamen only when Burundian peacekeepers fired into the air to disperse the crowd trying to assault the convoy, he said. Some trucks broke

Sacred Heart taking donations for El Salvador Sacred Heart Catholic Church is in need of supplies to aid the poor of El Salvador.

Anything is appreciated. Everything donated goes directly to help the very poor around Berlin, El Salvador. Any time anyone would like to hear more about this ongoing service, call Mangrich to set up a time to share.

“I am just a sinner saved by the grace of God,” retired pastor and author Warren McFate said.

McFate spent 20 years of his life working on a book titled “A Formula For Your Church to Increase Its Financial Resources.” The book started out as seven pages, but has evolved into 110-page book compiling the information from slightly more than 100 writers on stewardship. “It was retirement that gave me the leisure to do some exploration and a lot of reading,” McFate said. “My venture has lead me to read more than 100 books and visit three of the nation’s largest churches. From that I have developed this book.” Before McFate started writing the book, he struggled with financial and attendance situations in his church. “I have been a Methodist pastor for 43 years, and I observed from my own pastorate and others the need for serious improvement in finances and in attendance,” McFate said. “It was sort of a frustration for me to discover in my own ministry that was happening. So I said to myself, ‘There must be something truly better than that for churches.’” McFate finished the publication of the 12th edition of his book in 2011, and after the publication, he came to realize the full potential of the book. “It can honestly be said that it will help just about any church that desires some help in finances and attendance,” McFate said. “I know that sounds crazy to say, but its because of not any wisdom on my part, but it’s because I made the collection of wisdom of close to 100 people who have national known authority in the areas of stewardship and development.” While the nation, and Newton, have dealt with the recession and financial issues with businesses closing down, many churches have remained open through the “rough” economic times. “There’s many people working on that issue and I applaud them on their efforts. Finances and attendance in church is not a program issue because this deals with the whole gambit of church life believing it’s a system problem,” McFate said. “In the end, it’s an effort that if it’s not everyone working together to solve the problem it isn’t going to get solved.” “I feel that the central need of religion today is the revitalization of the local church and that some of these other arguments are taking the head of the stage. This manual addresses the needs of ‘mainline’ churches. It’s not intended to be a de-

down even before they could leave Bangui on Friday and had to be abandoned. The passengers jumped aboard other trucks, facing constant jeering, threats and stone-throwing from the spectators. “The Christians say the Muslims must go back where they came from — that’s why we are going home,” said Osmani Benui as she fled Bangui. “We couldn’t stay here because we had no protection.” The aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres, or Doctors Without Borders, said Friday that tens of thousands of Muslims have now fled to Chad and Cameroon. The U.N. refugee agency said that almost 9,000 people have fled to Cameroon in the last 10 days, bringing the number of refugees in Cameroon to 22,000 since current began.

Newton United Congregation Church is hosting a viewing of “The Grey Area” and a discussion to follow at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19. “The Grey Area” is a documentary that provides an intimate look at women’s issues in the criminal justice system and the unique experience of studying feminism behind bars, as we seek to grow in our understanding and ability to welcome all of God’s people.
