By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer During the 21st Annual Bowlful of Blues Festival last August, Terry Quiett said he would love to perform in Newton again, and tonight, he is fulfilling that promise. Beginning at 6 p.m. today at the Newton American Legion Post 111, the Terry Quiett band will be hosting a CD release party for the band’s latest effort “Taking Sides.” Admission is $5 for the general public and $4 for members of the Legion or South Skunk Blues Society. Terry himself said this album is “an interesting album.” The band wound up with more of a throwback vibe with this album, which essentially has two sides like old vinyl records. Side A is more a rootsy and raw blues-rock hybrid sound, while Side B gives off a soul and R&B vibe. “It really worked out well and was interesting how it kind of naturally evolved just out of

the songs and it’s kind of a unique thing how the record is split into two halves,” Terry said. “A lot of people were asking us, ‘Is it on vinyl?’ And I wish we could. We really wanted to put it out on vinyl; it’s the perfect kind of vinyl record since it has the Side A and Side B feel.” “Taking Sides” contains 13 tracks and the band will have it, along with Terry Quiett Band merchandise, for sale. The album won’t be available commercially for another few weeks. While most musicians strive to make sure no two shows are the same, Terry said Newtontians can definitely expect a different performance from the group than the two they gave last August— they led the official Bowlful of Blues after party jam session at the VFW — and both performances were very well-received. “They’ll here a bunch of new tracks, a bunch of the new stuff,” Terry said. “It’s the same three piece, we got Nathan Johnson play-

ing upright electric bass guitar and we have Rodney Baker playing drums and me and him have been playing together for a long time.” Terry said last year’s performances were a few of the earliest shows he and Rodney had played with Nathan, who joined the band earlier that summer. “He’s really settled in and he’s added a lot to the sound. It’s been a cool element having that upright bass sound. It’s big and it’s a little round and has this big warm burst sound to it and it’s a cool addition,” Terry said. Terry said they will be playing a lot of fan favorites as well at tonight’s show. “It’ll be a good time, a really good time,” he said. He also spoke very fondly of Maytag Park and the Maytag Bowl, which plays host to the Bowlful of Festival every year. BAND See Page 5A

“I just wanted to put a face with the name,” Meredith Conway of Venture Homes of West Des Moines said. The Newton City Council was able to put a face with the name Venture Homes before amending a resolution authorizing the sale of property located in Fountain Hills Estates. Venture Homes of West Des Moines proposal to start construction of two high-quality single-family homes this spring. The agreements between the city and Venture Homes is Venture would have the exclusive right to acquire any additional lots in Fountain Hills for a $1 a piece for new home construction through the end of 2016. “I was able to meet Bryan Friedman last fall,” Conway said. “We spent a good half a day going around doing a visual inspection on the type of house we build. I think he was very impressed with what he saw, which meant for us to continue to proceed with the idea of coming to Newton to build new construction.” Venture Homes plans to build two houses in Fountain Hills. The square footage of the homes will range from 1,400 to 1,700 square feet. The price range of the homes will be between $200,000 to $250,000. The two homes will each have a three-car garage. “I just met Craig Armstrong this evening,” Conway said. “We plan on taking advantage of Craig’s knowledge of Newton. We have gone around town to get an idea of the real estate companies to work with, which is a big part on selling the properties.”


By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer These days, pastor Steve Heerema leads between 450 to 500 souls to God during his services at Newton Church of The Way on Sundays. But a little more than two decades ago, he was leading citizens to shore as a member of the U.S. Coast Guard. Steve joined the Coast Guard as a way to help strengthen his resume and his original plan was to go into law enforcement. He said a lot of law enforcement personnel told him that having military service would be ideal if he wanted to make it higher up in the field. He joined the guard because one of its primary duties is law enforcement. “I joined the guard in 1991 right before the Gulf War,” Steve said. “I spent the whole Gulf War in boot camp. When I went in, in February of ‘91, is right

when it began, and by the time I graduated, in April of ‘91, it was over.” Like most people at the time, Steve said he and the other future guardsman at camp thought the war was going to turn into a major conflict. “We were in camp, thinking, ‘This is going to be significant,’ and then it was over,” he said with a laugh. Being in the guard provided Steve many opportunities he would have never been afforded simply because Iowa is a landlocked state. While he was stationed in Seattle, he talked about seeing marine wildlife,

providing maintenance to buoys in the Puget Sound and being able to discover various areas of the western U.S. coast. He also enjoyed the stability of the Coast Guard itself provided. “The Coast Guard is the only military service whose mission never changes. Whether the United States is at war, or not at war, the mission in the Coast Guard is always the same,” Steve said. “In other services, your mission might change based on the circumstance and in the Coast Guard, you are protecting the shores from invasion, you are doing law enforcement, you are doing everything — whether at peace or war.” Steve wound up spending almost seven years in the guard. He said the guard helped him in a multitude of ways and soon it became more than just something to help strengthen his resume, it became a guiding force.

Ty Rushing/Daily News Years after serving the U.S. Coast Guard, Steve Heerema said he received his calling and is currently the lead pastor at Newton Church of the Way, 2300 S. Third Ave. E.

“When I joined the military … I didn’t have a lot of focus in life and I didn’t know what I wanted to do,” Steve said. “I went to college to play football, I got injured and then my football career ended. After that, I didn’t known what I wanted to do once football was over. “What the Coast Guard did was it taught me discipline and gave me time to figure out what I wanted to do,” he continued. “Obviously

there is a lot of benefits to being in the service, it’s about teamwork and all these different things.” Some of the things he said he learned in the guard were leadership skills, how to commit to and honor an ideal and how to save people, all of which would work in his favor when he answered the call to become a pastor in the early 2000s.

Rep. Kelley signs NCEL letter to protect national parks Special to the Daily News DES MOINES — Rep. Dan Kelley of Newton signed the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators letter to President Obama about protecting national parks and public land. “The passion to enjoy the outdoors spurs America’s outdoor recreational economy, generating $646 billion in

consumer spending and 6.1 million jobs annually,” Kelley said. “We must act to ensure that these land areas are protected for many years to come.”   The letter calls on President Obama to protect public land in the United States. Many of these public lands are subject to claims by companies for the natural resources they con-

tain. The NCEL believes that these lands should remain open to the public in the condition they are currently in.    The NCEL is a caucus of state legislators across the country that aims to protect wildlife in the United States. It is a non-profit organized in 1996 that means to empower state legislators who care about the environment.

Sales tax rebate critical to speedway The opening of the Iowa Speedway came at a critical time for Newton and Jasper County. We’d taken a significant economic hit with the loss of a major employer.  With the inaugural race season in 2006, we were no longer defined by our loss, but as the home of the By Dan Kelley Iowa Speedway. Iowa House District 29 However, it is no secret that the Iowa Speedway has had financial challenges.  Its future success is critical for Jasper County. I’ve been working on legislation to help insure a solid future for the Iowa Speedway.  On Thursday, HSB 671 was voted on by the Ways and Means Committee.  The bill passed by a vote of 25-0.  It will likely be debated on the House Floor soon. HSB 671 provides for a rebate of 5 percent of the sales tax on goods and services sold at the Iowa Speedway, the remaining 2 percent will stay with the schools and local governments, up to a cap of $12.5 million or Jan. 1, 2026.  This is similar to a bill previously signed into law which is set to expire in 2016. Why is this proposal getting support from both sides of the aisle?  Because it is a performance-based incentive that only benefits Iowa Speedway if there is increased economic activity.  If there are no sales, there’s no sales tax.  In fact, in order to reach the cap, Iowa Speedway would need to generate three times the sales at the track that the previous ownership groups generated, which will require an enhanced entertainment experience to attract more fans in the stands.  The rebate is a low cost, low risk performance incentive for Iowa Speedway and a win for Iowans. NASCAR ownership is a gamechanger.  I’ve discussed NASCAR’s long-term vision for the Iowa Speedway with track president, Jimmy Small.  It is a vast departure from the status quo.  They plan to transform the underperforming speedway into a more popular regional attraction and a powerful economic engine for the area. NASCAR and the Iowa Speedway staff are committed to working in close collaboration with the community and state to maximize the economic potential of the Iowa Speedway. I’m hopeful we can continue to work in a bi-partisan manner and get HSB 671 to the governor’s desk this session.  It is a significant step to ensure NASCAR’s long-term vision becomes reality. Our top priority this year has been building a strong middle class from the ground up.  This week, two bills are moving through the Legislature that will help middle class families get ahead.  One proposal will make it easier for parents to work and go to the school at the same time to help them upgrade their workforce skills and land a goodpaying job.  Right now, the state offers child care assistance for working parents also going to school but the rigid requirements make it difficult for many families to qualify. I would like to expand the program statewide, but the majority party wants to expand child care assistance in just four of Iowa’s 99 counties.  If hard-working parents want to work and attend school to get a better job, we should do all we can to help them.  It shouldn’t matter where they live.   Another idea I support is expanding the child and dependent care tax credit.  By expanding the credit, it will put more money in the pockets of working families who have kids and are trying to make ends meet. Since Iowa has one of the highest rates of two-parent working families in the country, these ideas will help us grow Iowa’s middle class and build a highly-skilled workforce.

the speed limit with the foot on the gas — gave a raucous blast of the horn and blew past in front of me, going north.

Of course he did, but as I say plainly — he was a bully! Dean Sill Newton

Please pay it forward for Pete Hussmann To the editor: In November 2006, I had the opportunity to cover a story about a group of women lucky enough to go to Oprah and each receive $1,000 to do good deeds in their community. The whole intent of the talk show was to demonstrate the greatest gift we can give ourselves is helping others. At the time, Pete Hussmann was my editor at the Newton Daily News. I was so excited to 1) go to Chicago; 2) go see Oprah; and 3) share the story of how easily we can all have an impact on the world around us. When I called Pete to get permission to go with the group I am not sure who was more excited. It was evident he was excited for me and this opportunity. It is one of many fond memories I have from my time with Pete in the newsroom, and one I hold very near and dear for the lesson of how important it is

to pay it forward. Sadly, Pete left this world all too soon in January at just 55. I hate that. In fact I’m a little ticked that there are so many stories to be covered, so many life moments left to be shared with Julie and his boys, and so many lives left to be impacted with his warmth, humor, writing and giving heart. While his work may have been unfinished the example Pete set each and every Christmas stays with me. Oprah may have had a show about “pay it forward” but Pete lived it. He was one of the founding members of the St. Nick’s Christmas Club that served more than 600 children each Christmas. On March 28, a group of friends, colleagues and community members are putting together an event to help pay for medical bills and funeral costs left for the family after Pete’s passing. The event is an opportunity to not only say thank you for all Pete did for the community, it also serves as an opportunity to

Pay It Forward! The event is from 5 p.m. until we shut the place down on Friday, March 28, at the Elks Lodge in Newton. The event will feature food, music, auction items, prizes, and a time of fellowship and community for one of Newton’s finest.  I ask you to please, please, please come and support the Hussmann family and honor Pete’s memory. While he is probably most remembered as the editor of the Newton Daily News and Newton Independent, I think I will always remember Pete for being the Santa Claus to so many children who will never know his name, and for being a mentor and friend to so many aspiring reporters.  Pete Hussmann was a good boss, a heck of a newspaper man and a great community servant. Please come and honor his memory on March 28 by Paying It Forward For Pete. Jessica Lowe Newton

Does separation prove alliance? Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending the Big 12 Tournament Championship game in Kansas City where I went to support my alma mater, Iowa State. It was awesome. We use the adjective ‘awesome’ too often, but personally, this particular event deserved By Kate Malott to be classified Daily News Staff Writer under the ‘awesome’ column. It inspired awe and wonder unlike many other ordinary things. And for the first time, I was in true awe of the Iowa State Cyclones and the fan participation. I grew up an Iowa Hawkeye fan and started my collegiate career in Iowa City. For a large portion of my young adulthood, I was an obnoxious, proud and boastful Iowa fan, and like any

other loyal Iowa fan, I despised Iowa State. It was almost as if part of the duty of being an Iowa fan was to separate myself from all things Iowa State. But seasons came and went, and I eventually transferred because Iowa City is a difficult place for a teenager to focus. I moved to Ames, to the astonishment of my friends and family, to further my education and embrace a different experience. Iowa State was a wonderful place to go to school, and I enjoyed my time there, in a way, more than I did at the University of Iowa. Maybe I was more mature. Maybe I had better friends. Maybe it was a place I felt I could participate. Regardless, I had a blast. However, I wasn’t quite sold on the athletics department, and I felt a majority of students weren’t either. I never felt the Iowa State football games were as energetic as the Iowa games, and although, the basketball games were exciting, I was still in allegiance with Iowa. But the championship game on

Saturday whole-heartedly changed my mind. It was a work in progress, but I can now say that I’m a proud Iowa fan and a proud Iowa State fan. It’s possible — you can love both sides, you don’t have to choose. The attendance by Iowa State fans was overwhelming. It was called ‘Hilton South’ by many, and that it was. It was sold out and filled with cardinal and gold from top to bottom. I finally understood. On the way home from the game, I wondered if separation from a group proves alliance to another and is that a harmful norm to our societal wellbeing. Does it make us any better to be ‘sided’? What are the positives and negative to that ‘you’re either with us or against us’ way of thinking? It seems it’s the same superiority complex and division that embodies many state-school fans is the same philosophy many take towards politics. Competition is important, but in the end, we could all use a little empathy toward the other side.

CAA hosting Ladies’ Night Out class By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer The Centre for Arts & Artists has created a night just for ladies. Ladies’ Night Out, offered at 6 p.m. the second Friday of each month, features snacksm, wine and an art class led by a local artist. “It was an idea Stephanie Clark and myself had,” LNO instructor Karen King said. “We started to invite ladies to come, and it just grew from there. The class has been running for about a year and a half.” “I have loved meeting people through the classes,” King continued. “We make our lesson very easy, so all different skill levels can enjoy the class. We do multiple styles of creative art, which includes pottery and wreath making. We invite area artists to come to the class to teach and showcase their talents. We are always looking for new artists to teach the class. The cost of the class ranges from $15 and up. The cost goes up when we have to order different materials for the class.” The LNO class offers a creative concept for ladies who feel they don’t have time to be creative in their daily life. “I’m a first time participant

Continued from Page 1A “Playing out there in the park, that amphitheater, people up on the grass and hill, it was just a beautiful location. I just thought that whole set up was really, really cool,” Terry said. “I love playing that park. That was a really fun show. Such a perfect setting, a great setting. People were relaxing, the weather was gorgeous and it was cool, very cool.” Senior staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at

of Ladies’ Night Out at Centre for Arts & Artists,” Kim Meyer said. “It makes me feel creative, where in other areas of my life I don’t feel creative at all. A friend of mine told me about the class. I have been to another classes like this in Des Moines, so I knew what to expect. Karen does a very good job instructing the class. You don’t have to be creative to be successful in this class. Karen walks you through every step of the class and is always willing to help when you need it. She will help you blend your paints.” The class isn’t always about the art, but rather the interaction, for the participants, and it provides an opportunity to local women to experience the CAA.

“This is my first night at Ladies Night Out,” Chery Van Houweling said on March 14. “My daughter heard about the class. I knew that we were going to be doing bird silhouettes, and other than that, I didn’t really know what to expect nor did I have any expectations for the class. I have always wanted to see the inside of the Centre for Arts and Artists, so it was a great opportunity for me to do that. I do paintings at home, so it was a great opportunity. My favorite part of the class is just interacting with the other ladies in the class but also that there’s no expectations to the class in terms of skill level. I would tell ladies to come give it a try.”

Newton graduated 201 out of 213 students for a 94.37 percent graduation rate in 2013. In the Colfax-Mingo Community School District, 47 out of 49 students graduated and the district had a 95.92 graduation rate. IDE Director Brad Buck, in a release, said he is proud of the continued rise in graduation rates for Iowa’s student and said the next step would be to make sure that students are fully prepared for life after high school. “As a former Iowa superintendent and high school principal, I know the hard work that goes into getting every student across the finish line to complete high school,” Buck said. “Iowa’s increasing graduation rate is a testament to the commitment of everyone across the state, from parents to teachers to administrators to policy makers.” Senior staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@newtondailynews. com.

Maternity fashions reflect women’s pride in pregnancy DEAR ABBY: I am wondering why pregnant women these days don’t wear smocks like we all wore years ago. While I do think pregnant women are attractive, I really don’t want to see their swollen bellies. Wouldn’t it be better to just “imagine” what is under that smock or long skirt? Does anyone agree with me? — DOROTHY IN WASHINGTON DEAR DOROTHY: Some readers may agree, but I’m pretty sure most of them won’t. You are harking back to the days when people were embarrassed about the subject of sex, and used euphemisms like “in a family way” or “a bun in the oven” to describe pregnancy. Women today are proud to show off their silhouettes. In fact, I saw a woman recently sporting a T-shirt with an arrow pointing downward and the words “Baby on Board.” While this may seem to be somewhat “in your face,” I think it’s healthier than pretending there’s nothing going on when the expectant mother is in her seventh month and it’s obvious there is. DEAR ABBY: I’m 21 and a college student. My mother recently came to visit me and took my boyfriend and me out to dinner. After we were through eating, we sat across the table from my mother and engaged in post-dinner chatter. I draped my arm around his neck and began playing with his ear. It was absent-minded, and I thought nothing of it, but my mother stared from across the table shocked. She later told me that ear fondling is not appropriate in public. I was taken aback. Isn’t it OK to play with my boyfriend’s ear in public? Does it make people around us uncomfortable? — EAR SNUGGLES IN VERMONT DEAR EAR SNUGGLES: Playing with someone’s ear could be considered foreplay, and seeing it certainly made your mother uncomfortable. Perhaps among your contemporaries it would be acceptable, but as a general rule, it’s better to keep intimate gestures of affection

private. DEAR ABBY: I would like to offer a reminder so people won’t have to experience what I am right now. Please take a few minutes to go through your wallet and make photocopies of everything in there. Put the list somewhere you can easily find it. That way, if your wallet is lost or stolen, you’ll know what was in it. I did that years ago, but I didn’t keep it current and now I’m upset with myself. Some time over the weekend I misplaced my wallet. Luckily, I don’t keep my ID and debit cards there, so at least they are safe. But because I use my wallet so seldom, I’m unsure what was in there. If people make copies of everything in their wallets, it will be easier to report and replace the things should the need arise. I am so bummed out right now. While I lost only $30, I lost a treasured photograph of my daughter, and I can’t remember what other cards may have been in there. — FUMING IN LUTZ, FLA. DEAR FUMING: I know from personal experience how frustrating losing a wallet can be, so thank you for wanting to remind readers how important it is to copy documents or credit cards they carry with them. It takes only a few minutes, and the peace of mind it brings is worth the effort.

County graduation rates above average

Hall Monitor

By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer Last week, the Iowa Department of Education announced that, for the third consecutive year, graduation rates have increased statewide. In 2013, 89.68 percent of students graduated high school in Iowa, which is a 0.42 percent increase from 2012. Locally, all five districts in Jasper County averaged a combined 96.95 percent graduation rate based on the official figures from IDE. According to IDE, LynnvilleSully High School graduated 39 out of 40 students in 2013, which gave them a 97.5 percent graduation rate. However, L-S Community School District Superintendent Shane Ehresman said the figure will be amended to reflect that L-S had a 100 percent rate. “The one student who did not graduate from Lynnville-Sully in May 2013 has since completed the necessary coursework for a high school diploma,” Ehresman said. “As a result, next year’s Iowa Department of Education graduation five-year cohort graduation rate for the Class of 2013 will be 100 percent.” Ehresman also talked about how his district has managed to main-

When problems arise, we work together to support the students’ needs.” The Baxter Community School District also graduated 100 percent

It’s Madness

NCAA upsets mark first full day of NCAA tourney SAN DIEGO (AP) — The day started with a bracketcrushing blow. More upsets followed. Four overtime games, a record. A buzzer-beater, a pair of late-night scares. OK, now breathe. This was just one day. There are still 47 games left, 16 of those on Friday. After one of the wildest opening days in NCAA tournament history, one that cost millions their shot at $1 billion, it’s hard to imagine there won’t be more chaos to come. “I’ve heard this before where there really aren’t upsets anymore,” Harvard coach Tommy Amaker said after the Crimson pulled off one of Thursday’s biggest takedowns. “There may be some surprises, but I just think when you’re looking at seeds and if you’re playing this time of year, you’re probably a pretty good basketball team.” We’ll start with the billion. Warren Buffett offered the unprecedented prize to anyone who could come up with a perfect bracket. Forty minutes into the first full day of the tournament, roughly 83 percent of the would-be billionaires were done after Dayton, the No. 11 seed in the South Regional, toppled sixth-seeded Ohio

State 60-59 in Buffalo, N.Y. Just the beginning. No. 12 East seed Harvard started a how-can-that-be run of games in Spokane, Wash., by knocking off fifthseeded Cincinnati 60-59. Two upsets, and almost everyone shooting for perfection was eliminated before they got home from work, the number of blemished brackets up to about 95 percent. The day of dead pools continued in Spokane, where No. 12 West seed North Dakota outlasted fifth-seeded Oklahoma 80-75. Thanks for playing everyone. Less than 1 percent of you are still in it. It was a 9.2 quintillionto-1 pipe dream to begin with, and Buffett has to like his chances even more after a day like this. Bracketers in contests by ESPN and suffered similar fates, leaving less than 1 percent unblemished. “Being bounced from the billion THAT early definitely made me feel some type of way,” said Marcus Arman of Portland, Ore. “I can tell you this: I will not be supporting the city of Dayton in any shape, form or fashion so long as my foam finger still points upward.” And that wasn’t it.

Not at a point in the college hoops timeline where upsets, seedings and status have little bearing on the bracket. The opening day of the 64team bracket included four overtime games, a record. Connecticut had the first, beating Saint Joseph’s 89-81 in coach Kevin Ollie’s NCAA tournament debut. North Dakota’s win over Oklahoma came in overtime after Lawrence Alexander hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left in regulation. Saint Louis rallied late to force overtime and beat North Carolina State 83-80 in Orlando, Fla., and San Diego State needed an extra 5 minutes to outlast New Mexico 73-69. Including Tennessee’s win over Iowa in the First Four, that’s five overtimes in the opening 20 games. Now that’s madness in March.

“We didn’t want to end on that kind of note. We didn’t want to bow out of the tournament this early,” said Saint Louis’ Rob Loe, who had 22 points and 15 rebounds. “We’re here to win, and we’re here to put our mark on basketball.” Of course the day included a buzzer-beater. It came in Milwaukee, where Texas’ Cameron Ridley gathered an offensive rebound and put it up just out of the reach of Arizona State’s 7-foot-2 center Jordan Bachynski and into the basket, sending the Longhorns to an 87-85 victory over the Sun Devils. “We were fortunate,” Texas coach Rick Barnes. So many weren’t, especially those who had hoped to win some coin with a perfect bracket. With Dayton’s opening win, about 83 percent of the brackets in Yahoo’s Tourney Pick ‘Em game were one and done, perfection flushed in 40 minutes. The wins by Harvard and North Dakota State only figured to add to the number of disappointed billionairesin-waiting once the official numbers were released. “Yesssssssssss HARVARD!!!!!!! Messing up a lot of peoples chances at $1 billion

lol,” former Harvard and current Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin said on Twitter. At, Dayton took out 81 percent of the poolers in the bracket challenge. By the time the Bison roamed over the Sooners in the evening, 0.4 percent of the brackets were still perfect. Of the 11 million brackets in ESPN’s Tournament Challenge, over 80 percent had Ohio State advancing to the next round. That’s about 8.8 million brackets with a blemish after one game. And to the 2.2 percent that had the Buckeyes going all the way to the Final Four: Oops! Through 12 games, there were 41,315 perfect brackets out of the original 11 million — or about 0.3 percent. This, of course, is nothing new. A year ago, not a single person of the 11 million who entered on ESPN’s website was perfect after a first day filled with upsets. Just four got 15 out of 16 right. By now, we’ve learned that Cinderella’s carriage doesn’t turn into a pumpkin once the NCAA tournament starts. It becomes a Formula One car racing through the bracket — and it may be moving at an even faster pace this year.

Iowa, Iowa State open NCAA wrestling tourney OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Things weren’t perfect for Penn State on opening day at the NCAA wrestling championships, but the Nittany Lions still are in position to win their fourth straight national title. Penn State leads with 26.5 points after Thursday’s action at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Five Nittany Lions won their first two matches and advanced to Friday morning’s quarterfinals. All 10 of Penn State’s wrestlers are still alive to score points. Minnesota and Oklahoma State are tied for second with

21.5 points and Iowa and Oklahoma are tied for fourth with 20.5. Iowa took some hits in the morning session. In the 165 class, unseeded Josh Veltre of Bloomsburg (Pa.) knocked off Iowa’s No. 5 seed, Nick Moore, 15-7 in a major decision. In the 184 class, Iowa’s Ethen Lofthouse, seeded fifth, lost to Victor Avery of Edinboro 5-3. Only seven of Iowa’s 10 wrestlers escaped the early session with victories. Things nearly got worse for Iowa early in the evening session. Iowa’s Tony Ramos, the No. 3 seed at 133,


needed overtime to defeat No. 14 seed Zane Richards of Illinois. Iowa rallied and provided one of the highlights of the evening at 197. No. 11 seed Nathan Burak scored a twopoint takedown in the closing seconds of the third period to defeat No. 6 seed Richard Perry of Bloomsburg, 4-3. Six Iowa State wrestlers came to the championships, and all six remain standing as day one wrapped up. The Cyclones are sitting ninth in the team standings, thanks to a 10-3 record in matches and three wins by fall.

Indoor track meet results are delayed Area high school track teams competed in indoor track meets at Central College in Pella and Grinnell on Thursday, but no official results from the two meets were available by press time Friday. The Daily News plans to have all results for stories by Monday’s edition. Lynnville-Sully was in the South Iowa Cedar League indoor meet at Grinnell. Colfax-Mingo, CMB and PCM were at Central.

How was your first day of the new season? The passage of the sun into Aries represents new birth, so you may feel as though you’re going into the future with innocent eyes. The Pisces moon suggests that those eyes will take in what’s happening on a spiritual level first, and that information will color all following observations. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 21). You’ll add to your assets in an important way that will help your financial situation for years to come. The healing of a friendship happens in April, and this boost to your heart energy will attract more love to your life, too. You will travel with a sweet companion in June and September. July brings intriguing drama. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 23, 20, 50, 35 and 10. ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you’re aligned with your values, why change? Maybe it’s the cast of characters or the situation that needs to

change and not you. Seek new scenery and people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If the television or radio is on all of the time, it will drown out your thoughts. Right now your thoughts need conscious processing that is best accomplished in quiet and stillness. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Put love in its proper place: above everything else. Pettiness needs to be stopped in order to protect love’s bond. Let the small stuff go in favor of the big picture as seen by your heart. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You raise the bar repeatedly, and you and your loved ones often jump over it, even when it gets very high. No one can do this every time. Landing in the sand every once in a while is normal. Go easy on yourself and others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Unfortunately, selfish narcissists usually don’t see themselves as people who sorely need to give and empathize. The best

you can do is model the behavior you want to see in others. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Isolation isn’t good for humans. Whether your feelings are positive or negative, share them. When you share, you’ll feel supported and loved. Keep it to yourself, and you’ll soon believe that no one understands you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In your quest to do the best job you possibly can, you risk overdoing it. Tap into your inner wisdom and ask it to stop you from focusing too narrowly and obsessing over unimportant details. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Time is elastic. When you don’t have enough to do, it stretches out in front of you. When you have too much to do, it snaps back to enforce a very real limitation. Fill your schedule, but leave room around each item. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). New technology comes into your realm, asking you to quickly decide whether

it’s something you want or not. You will quickly update your frame of reference to keep your discernment current. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Once you adjust your expectations of people with consideration for their age, personality type and past performance, you will relate to all with ease and enjoyment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Amidst the hundreds of daily transactions your hands will execute today, one really deserves to be a sacred exchange. What will make it so? The sacred quality of attention you give it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just as there is an adjustment period in which you are getting used to a system update on your computer or phone, there will be an adjustment phase as you warm up to a loved one’s selfimprovement efforts.
