seen anything to consider him a very serious candidate.” “I do intend to debate the general election opponent, but I think it’s pretty doubtful that we’re going to have time to debate the primary because we have the legislative session to accomplish, and we have many other things to get done.” Hoefling’s debate proposal includes four smaller events hosted and organized by willing county

GOP organizations within the four congressional districts, and would culminate in a large venue debate hosted by the state party. Any proceeds would be split proportionally between the various party organizations participating, for use in electing local Republicans in November. Moderation would be provided by the state and county party chairmen. BRANSTAD See Page 5A

Accident leaves car on utility pole By Colin Hansen Daily News Intern At approximately 5:11 p.m. Wednesday at 1432 N. Ninth Ave. Place E., Amber Wielard, 18, of Newton was backing her car out of her driveway when suddenly her foot stuck on the gas pedal, sending her vehicle over the guide wires and up a utility pole owned by Alliant Energy. Police reports suggest she was not intoxicated at the time of the accident. The estimated amount of damage was $600 for the vehicle and $700 for the utility pole. No one was injured in the accident. Wielard was cited with failure to maintain control.

Voshell was also fined $1,750, all of which was suspended by the court.

At 10:47 a.m. April 13, 2013, two residents of a rural home southwest of Newton returned to their home to discover a burglary was already in progress.

The daughter of Dirk and Emma (Dieleman) Van Zomeren, Bertha was the youngest of three children. She was born at home on Jan. 28, 1921, in Marion County. Bertha completed the eighth grade and at an early age began working with families in the area. She stayed in their home, cared for their children, and did light house work. On Nov. 5, 1939, she was united in marriage to Willis R. Van Wyk and

begin her lifetime career as a farmer’s wife and mother. In March 1, 1940, they moved to their farm west of Monroe where she lived until being hospitalized on March 9, 2014. She had lived on the farm for 74 years, working side by side with her husband for sixty-three and one half years. At a young age, she accepted Christ as her personal Savior. She was a member of the Monroe First Baptist Church where she enjoyed serving her Lord and Savior. Bertha taught Sunday school for many years, served in the AWANA program, played in the bell choir, served on many committees and assisted in the planning of the new church building in 1966.

Woman pays $200 bill with coins, town says no more ERIE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania township is asking residents to keep the change. Officials in Millcreek Township, along with its water and sewer authorities, have adopted a policy limiting how much change they’ll accept from residents paying sewer bills and other fees. David Sterrett, executive director of the authorities, tells the Erie Times-News that officials came up with the policy after a woman showed up last month with a shoebox full of nickels, dimes and quarters to pay a $200 sewer bill. Sterrett says it took four employees an hour to count, sort and put the money into paper sleeves. The new policy limits residents to using $10 in unrolled coins or $20 in rolled coins when paying bills.

coffee time. There was always plenty of food in the house and of course Gold ‘N’ Nugit ice cream bars in the freezer for her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren’s delight. Throughout her life, Bertha was faithful in reading her Bible and devotions, Our Daily Bread. When she began to have difficulty reading her Bible, Bertha insisted that her caretakers read her Bible and devotions to her each evening. In fact, her Bible was being read to her when she left this life and went to be with her Savior. Those left to honor her memory include her children, Dr. Kenneth (Pat) Van Wyk of Pella, Janice (Hugh) Elrod of Prairie City, and Roy (Claudia) Van Wyk of Monroe; 10 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her parents; her brother, Wilbur Van Zomeren; her sister, Jeannette Templer; her beloved husband, Willis in 2003; a grandson, Hugh Scott Elrod in 1966; and a granddaughter, Jacquelyn Van Wyk Gosnell in 2011.

Hurto thankful for selection of poem for OPEN contest

Don’t pull the plug: Wind energy empowers U.S.

To the editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tori Reynolds of OPEN and the members of the judges’ panel for selecting my poem, “The Land of Terrible Beauty,” as the winning entry in the poetry contest connected with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Taras Shevchenko, the national poet/ artist of Ukraine. As a former member of the OPEN Board of Directors and a frequent visitor to Ukraine, I have learned to appreciate Shevchenko’s contribution to Ukrainian history by documenting a difficult time during its period of serfdom under warring factions for power in the early to mid-1800s. I urge your readers to read more about Shevchenko online and to check out his wealth of artwork reflecting culture, the difficulty of life for the peasant class, and imprisonment for speaking out against injustice.  His book, “Kobzar” (which is a musical instrument), is respected all over the world and has been translated into many languages. Statues honoring Shevchenko have been erected throughout Ukraine and Russia, and his writings, sketches and paintings have been prominently featured in numerous museums in both countries. Shevchenko died young in 1861. Again, thank you for this prestigious honor. I am very moved. Barry Hurton Newton

Concerned that long-time business left out of Get to Know Newton campaign To the editor: I just wanted to thank Ty Rushing for being such a nice breath of fresh air to the Newton Daily News. I very much enjoyed his piece today “Diary of a Caffeine Addict.” I am a “real” coffee drinker with the tell-tale withdrawal signs following my lack of caffeinating first thing in the morning, yet I somehow manage to keep it to one cup per day. I also enjoy my one cup from my Keurig via the more sustainable and economically friendly “my k-cup”. That aside, I think it is incredibly important to note his fun piece better brought to light the often overlooked Newton charmer: Uncle Nancy’s. Lately, with the “Get to Know Newton” media blitz, it appears this staple in our community has been overlooked. The first Get to Know Newton booklet greatly concerned me as a long-time Newton resident. It chose to focus on the year-old coffee place vs. the one that has been a part of our community for more than 10 years. I’m not sure if this was an oversight or ignorance, but either way, I would not blame those responsible for making Uncle Nancy’s successful for feeling slighted. Uncle Nancy’s has continuously been on the forefront of making sure Newton’s residents, causes and missions were presented to the public. It has always graciously allowed local artists, musicians, speakers, politicians and everything in between needing a platform to have a venue or forum to let their voices be heard and their work seen. I’m all for friendly competition and that might come in a newer and trendier package, but as anyone with business acumen might know, a new business rarely makes it past five years. I encourage the newer location to step up their game to meet the community’s needs, but right now I believe we owe it to Uncle Nancy’s to continue to give it our patronage as it has always shown faith in the community and residents it serves.

By Sens. Chuck Grassley & Mark Udall and Reps. Dave Loebsack & Steve King Momentum is building to extend expired tax provisions that lapsed Dec. 31. Of the 55 expired tax breaks on the table, wind energy incentives are among those left hanging. The industry faces instability and uncertainty caused by the expiration of the investment and production tax credits. We’re working to build bipartisan, bicameral and regional alliances to secure a victory for America’s 21st century clean energy policy. So far, 144 lawmakers have stood with us and hard-working families in our effort to support onshore and offshore wind energy developments in the tax extenders package. Specifically, we are pressing leaders in the House and Senate to prioritize extensions of the job-creating investment and production tax credits for wind energy. This federal tax policy has helped to launch a carbon-free energy source and diversify America’s portfolio of homegrown, alternative sources of energy. The tax credits have helped to support 85,000 U.S. jobs; trigger $105 billion in private sector investment; reduce the carbon footprint by displacing carbon-emitting energy with clean generation wind energy (U.S. wind power capacity of more than 60,000 megawatts avoids 100 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, the equivalent of taking 17 million cars off the road); and, harness an inexhaustible source of affordable, domestic electricity for consumers.

In fact, at 27.4 percent, Iowa leads the nation, powering the equivalent of 1.3 million homes - Colorado is not far behind, powering roughly a million homes. Critics looking for additional proof that wind energy tax incentives make good policy and good politics need to consider that wind energy is good for consumers, constituents and taxpayers. Wind energy projects operate in 70 percent of congressional districts. They require no oil spill liability fund to clean up environmental disasters. The U.S. taxpayer doesn’t have to pay for catastrophic insurance as with nuclear power. But despite its successes in the last two decades, the still-emerging wind industry is working to rebound after setbacks from the uncertainty of expiring tax policy. It suffered 4,500 job losses in 2012 within its manufacturing sector as orders and investment dwindled. Investment dropped from $25 billion to $2 billion. And this debate is not taking place within a vacuum. A failure to renew wind energy tax credits not only jeopardizes U.S. manufacturing and our pursuit of energy security, but it also threatens U.S. leadership in the global energy race. If Congress pulls the rug out from under wind energy firms, other places like China are more than willing to step into the breach. The United States can’t afford to pull the plug on wind energy tax incentives that foster responsible environmental stewardship, encourage entrepreneurs to innovate clean-energy technologies and investors to finance the job-creating infrastructure that delivers clean electricity to America’s homes and businesses.

The Hometown Kid

My ‘God’s Not Dead’ journey The past three days have been filled with emotion and faith, and now I find myself in the office at midnight on Thursday writing my column. A great man once said, “The way I know your my son is that you love with everything you have and By Zach Johnson that I can feel Staff Writer your heart and know you’ve done good.” I remember hearing those words coming from my father’s voice and it still brings tears to my eyes. The journey over the past three days has found me with millions of emotions looking at the world today and wondering if this is truly real. Monday, while checking the newsfeed on Facebook, I noticed it was trending that the Christian Community was outraged by “Noah.” The proof was shown through the many blogs and website comments filled with Christians screaming about how that the film was outlandish and no one should go see it. The marketing behind “Noah” has shown it was how the studio saw the story of Noah. I believe they took it to an extreme, turning four pages of the Bible into a three-hour movie. But, simply put, it wasn’t just that the Christian community focused its energy on “Noah,” but that most of those same comments were urging others to see “God’s Not Dead” instead.

I wondered why couldn’t the Christian community just let “Noah” be and use all its pent-up energy to just promote the topfive box office powerhouse, “God’s Not Dead.” And then, while having dinner with friends that night, I discovered several local churches banded together to bring “God’s Not Dead” to Newton — my faith was re-affirmed. I thought it was story Newton needed to see on th Daily News religion page. So, the next stage of my journey began on Tuesday, as I visited different churches to find out about “God’s Not Dead.” By the end of the day, I had multiple churches and community members tell me about their own “God’s Not Dead” journeys. For me, the journey took me back to my high school days when I was able to talk with one of my football coaches, Randy Ervin, about his faith and experiences with the film. Wednesday, I found myself hopping off the wild ride of faith, heading back to “reality.” I was getting set to round out the day, but found myself in conversation with Daily News Editor Bob Eschliman about column writing and video work. I found myself locking the door, thinking about the conversation and thinking about what I originally wrote in my column before. It’s an everyday occurrence to have those questions that aren’t impossible to answer, but that everyone has to answer for themselves. I found myself debating the questions, “What is truth?” and “What is love?” neither of which, standing

alone, have a definitive answer. In the end, through the past three days, I have seen my faith truly shaken and then set on fire. People, whether they’re Christian or not, will have their negative comments filled with energy ready to unload, but I urge you to take the time to think if you could be using your energy toward something productive. Newton loves its movie theaters, both the Valle Drive-In and Capitol II Theatre. Over the past few years, I have learned a lot about studios and how they decide which theaters will feature their films. It’s purely economical and based on numbers. The movie studios, like any business, have to make money. If a studio sees one movie doesn’t do so well at a particular theater, it makes it tougher for that theater to get another movie with a similar theme to it. I know most would say “good,” but what if a movie is set to come out just like “Noah,” but without biblical story tied to it? It wasn’t until the last 15 minutes of Wednesday that my “God’s Not Dead” journey made sense. It was about coming home and being able to kick back and relax, or knowing when to punch the clock and sit down to enjoy a Marvel-ous movie and remembering to stay until the very end. The Valle Drive-In will kick off their season and the Capitol II will have a special showing Thursday night of “Captain America: Winter Solider.” Capitol II start time is 9:15 p.m. And the gates at Valle Drive-In opens at 6:30.

Opponents of wind energy tax incentives argue the industry doesn’t need any government support, yet there are plenty of tax policies for various industries that have been on the books for decades longer than those for wind. If one measure is on the table for potential removal, all of them should be on the table. Everything deserves consideration on its merits, and wind energy stands up to scrutiny. Technology, tax incentives and private investment work to strengthen the renewable energy sector’s position in the free marketplace and power America’s carbon-free energy policies forward. Consider that 72 percent of a wind turbine’s value today is made in the United States, compared to 25 percent in 2005. Over the past few decades, wind energy in the United States has changed the economic and energy landscape with nearly 900 utilityscale wind projects on the nation’s electricity grid and more than 550 wind-related manufacturing facilities. Wind farms and/or factories have cropped up in all 50 states, putting people to work in goodpaying jobs, diversifying farm and ranch income with an organic, drought- and weed-resistant cash crop, revitalizing rural communities and creating pollution-free electricity for millions of homes and businesses across the country. Under one estimate, if the United States reaches 20 percent of windgenerated electricity, carbon emissions by the electricity sector would fall by up to 25 percent. That’s the equivalent of taking 140 million vehicles off the road.

Zach Johnson/Daily News The Valle Drive-In opens tonight with “Captain America: Winter Soldier.”

Valle Continued from Page 1A “It’s going to be strange with the new technology, but we will have it down,” Mertz said. “I have been through two era changes in the movie theater industry.” Mertz started managing a theater in 1954 in Perry. “The theater business has been good to me through the years,” Mertz said. Valle Drive-In received social media attention by participating in “Honda’s Project Drive-In.” Despite not winning the competition,

Valle made the investment in a digital projector. “I’m sure happy the competition got our name out to other com-

munities,” Mertz said. “The bulk of our business comes from outside of Jasper county and sometimes outside of Iowa. I have heard of people from Omaha, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.” The Valle Drive-In has become an iconic venue, not only for Newton, but throughout Iowa. “Our customers come from all over and many of them head into the town to eat at restaurants and stay in the hotels, so we’re bringing money to the community,” Mertz said. Valle will add “Need For Speed” as the second feature for the opening weekend of the season.

According to Halferty, Voshell refused to cooperate with investigators from the U.S. Marshal Service and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation when they asked him about the incident. The Jasper County Sheriff ’s Office filed formal first-degree burglary charges against

Voshell in September, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Pleasant Hill Police located and arrested him Oct. 29; he was subsequently transferred to the Jasper County Jail. Daily News Editor Bob Eschliman may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 423, or at beschliman@newtondailynews.com.

BBBS receives grant from restaurant chain By Daily News Staff Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa announced Wednesday it had received a $3,000 grant from the company that owned Red Lobster, Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants, among others, across the U.S. Darden Restaurants Foundation, the charitable arm of Darden Restaurants, is providing the funding through its three-year-old Restaurant Community Grants program. The donation will provide additional funding for BBBSCI’s Com-

After the bill-signing ceremony, Reynolds began the town hall meeting, noting the unemployment rate of Jasper County has dropped from 9.5 percent to 6 percent, one of the many facts presented during the town hall meeting. “We’re doing great, but without a doubt we’re not satisfied with the results,” Reynolds said. “The governor and myself are very competitive to show people can live out their dreams, the ‘Iowa Dream.’” Branstad and Reynolds see their idea of the “Iowa Dream” for Iowans through the prism of their experiences. “First of all, you have the friendliest and nicest people you could ever meet here in Iowa,” Branstad said. “The vice-president of China Xi Jinping came here in 1985, it was his first trip to America from our sister state, Heibi. He was from what we called ‘Communist China’ in those days, and yet he was in my office, while I was governor at that time on April 29, 1985.” Branstad continued on about Jinping’s experience while traveling throughout the state. “He was so impressed with the friendliness and hospitality. He went to birthday parties, picnics and went out on the Mississippi River,” Branstad said. “When I

Matches

in this program spend a minimum of four hours a month together, where they attend outings that expose children to new cultural and educational experiences. The funding from the Darden Foundation will also be used to sponsor some of those activities, helping to offset the cost for the volunteer mentors. “With this grant, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa will be able to provide more mentors to children in need of a positive role model, instilling a greater vision of the future to those who need it most,” says BBBSCI CEO Kit Curran.

I usually met with friends from Heibi, our sister state, but I got to meet with Jinping, and he told me of how much he remembers of our trip to Iowa.” “When he thinks of America, he thinks of Iowa and the wonderful people he met while on his trip here,” Branstad continued. “It’s not just our friendly nature, but we have a great work ethic. We’re trying to revitalize our education system. I think we have a lot going for us.” Reynolds shared her thoughts on the “Iowa Dream” to those in attendance at the town hall meeting. “The unique thing is that we get to see this as we travel through all 99 counties to see these great people,” Reynolds said. “It’s those people that are working hard to make their communities vibrant and successful, whether its the farmers or a small business owner. They pull together and believe in what they’re doing and they love Iowa.” Reynolds believes that getting people to Iowa sets the “Iowa Dream” for those moving to Iowa. “Once they get here — at times they’re hesitant about moving here — but after time, they don’t want to leave,” she said.

FAMILY CIRCUS

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Readers weigh in on pros and cons of only childhood DEAR ABBY: “Maybe Only One in Georgia” (Jan. 7), who asked whether she should have a second child, needs to understand there are no guarantees. Her 5-yearold could end up hating her younger sibling, or adoring her. Parents create a child because they want to share their union with a new life. Each child is unique and represents a life commitment, not just 18 years of hard work. I am the youngest of four, the “surprise” baby boy when my parents were in their 40s. I loved them and they never made me feel unwanted. I adore my older sister. We were always close despite the eight-year age difference. My two brothers are very different than I am, and we don’t have much to do with one another. “Maybe” should not produce another child to be a playmate to the one they have. It should be done only if they’re financially, emotionally and spiritually willing and capable of rearing another person. If not, they should enjoy the extra time, money and energy they’ll have, and perhaps give a needy dog or cat a home. — YOUNGEST CHILD IN SAVANNAH DEAR YOUNGEST CHILD: I told “Maybe” I couldn’t decide this for her, but would open up the question to my readers. And they sure had some comments! Here are a few: DEAR ABBY: My advice is DON’T! I have two sons, 27 and 31. They hardly know each other and have no interest in what the other is doing. It breaks my heart, as they are the only close blood relatives they have. I didn’t have the younger one so the older would have company. I wanted another baby. I was 29, but wouldn’t consider it at “Maybe’s” age (38). How long does she think she can run that fast? — MITZI IN DAYTON DEAR ABBY: Most only children I know are spoiled and used to getting their own way, largely because they haven’t had to share. My husband is from a large family and they are all close, even with a 20-year age span. We recently dealt with issues related to elderly parents, and trust me, I was so thankful to have the help of my siblings. I feel it is unfair to raise a child alone if you’re able to add to the family unit. — GRATEFUL MOM DEAR ABBY: I am a happy only child. I was raised by kind people. I have a positive self-image, was a self-reliant kid and am a

confident, productive adult. As a parent, I had a lot to learn. My husband, one of four siblings, reassured me that the quarreling and jealousy among our three was normal. They learned to fight and stick up for themselves — something I had to master later. As a child, I wondered what it would be like to have a brother or sister, but my imaginary friends were good company. When my aging parents were ailing, it might have been nice to have a sibling to share that with, but my husband was ample support. “Onlies” can be very peaceful people. Most of us prefer to cooperate rather than compete. As kids, we’re the center of the universe and responsible for everything. That sense of responsibility carries over into adulthood. — ANNE IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: Have that second child if fate wills it. Your life will be richer for it. Your daughter will appreciate having a sibling, and you will wonder how you ever imagined life without him/her. I was 6 when my sister was born. Yes, we went to different schools and had different friends. But we shared a bedroom as we matured and had many memorable times we still talk about today. There is no age barrier as time passes, and really, that gap closes earlier than you would think. — BIG SIS IN FLORIDA DEAR ABBY: Many kids, such as a classmate of your child, need a second temporary home — if only for a play date away from their own house. Open your home to these opportunities. Expose your child to those less fortunate than she. On travels, visit a school (or community), so she can see how it differs from her own circumstances. Create independence in her, but also teach her the INTERDEPENDENCE she’ll need for a balanced life. — WYOMING TEACHER

Submitted Photos Eating filling foods like hot cereal, snacking on low calorie vegetables or an occasional square of chocolate are ways to help sustain food cravings and create a successful spring weight-loss plan.

Time for a spring diet makeover Nancy Schive, R.D., L.D. Outpatient Education Dietitian Skiff Medical Center Spring is here — finally — and are you ready to put away those bulky winter clothes? It isn’t uncommon for us to let our attention to healthy eating lapse a bit during the winter months. But with spring upon us, it’s time to make a few small changes in your everyday diet that can add up to a healthier, fitter springtime you. Here are four simple tips to get you going. Practice vegging out Fill up on foods that give you the most satiety for the least amount of calories. Eating a large lowercalorie salad as a first course may help lower the amount of calories eaten at the rest of the meal. This lower-calorie salad can include greens of any kind (the greener the better), carrots, tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, peppers and/or any other colorful vegetable, low-fat or fat-free dressing (1-2 Tablespoons)

s

and light mozzarella cheese (1 Tablespoon). Large portions of foods make you feel like you have eaten a lot, even if you are eating lowercalorie items. Start with something hot Hot cooked cereal such as oatmeal has more calorie density of dry cereal. Hot cereals are more filling. Therefore, they may keep you fueled into the late morning and help you avoid the mid-morning munchies. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend at least three (1 ounce) servings of whole-grain foods daily. Including those high-fiber foods regularly may help reduce risk of diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Think green Green tea is a healthier alternative to soda. One can of regular soda has approximately 140 calories, which equals about 9 teaspoons of sugar. Green tea, in comparison, has 0 calories (if you choose the unsweetened variety). Studies have shown that green

The Deal is on!

tea is a source of antioxidants that may have anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting properties. Look for different varieties of green tea, such as my new favorite, prickly pear green tea. Served over ice, this makes a tasty and refreshing drink. Take a chocolate break One small square of dark chocolate may be just enough to satisfy that craving and provide you with health benefits. Not only does the stronger flavor provide more satisfaction for every bite, but the antioxidant properties may help reduce heart disease risk, lower blood pressure and diabetes risk. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans focus on balancing calories with physical activity, and encourage Americans to consume more healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products, and seafood, and to consume less sodium, saturated and transfats, added sugars, and refined grains. Use these guidelines to help you get your spring off to a healthy start.

Newton girls’ track team ready to go outside By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Three indoor track meets in March allowed Newton girls’ head coach Rachel Tomas a glimpse of the potential the Cardinal girls have for the 2014 outdoor track season. Mid-distance and distance races, and throwing events have been strong suits for Newton in the past and should be again this season. “Our indoor season opened the door for many different options to try for the outdoor season to maximize our success,” Tomas said. “We had a successful start to sprint events this year in the indoor meets. It is a great problem to have as a coach to have several different athletes that can step up and play key roles.” The Cardinals open the outdoor season today at Boone. Newton has 23 returning letterwinners and 10 of those have state track meet experience. Leading the way are senior Michaela Bleeker, junior Sarah Kalkhoff and senior Madison Bagnall in the throwing events. Kalkhoff has the NHS record in the discus with a throw of 133 feet, 1 inch. She was second at the 4A state meet a year ago with Bleeker finishing 24th. Bleeker qualified for state in the shot put, taking 13th with a throw of 35’8”. Kalkhoff placed sixth in the discus , 130’7”, at the 2013 Drake Relays. “All three were extremely reliable and important to team success. They had a good start in the indoor shot put this year,” Tomas said. The Cardinals’ sophomore Grace Coen qualified for state in the 800 meters and 1,500 meters plus on the 4x800-meter and distance medley relays last year. Coen claimed fourth in the 1,500 in 4 minutes,

44.28 seconds and was 13th in the 800. Coen set the school record, 4:40.25, in the 1,500 at the 2013 Drake Relays, taking fourth. She was 12th in the 800 meters at the Drake Relays. Coming back with Coen from the state-qualifying 4x800 relay team are senior Amber Karsten and junior Hailey Coy. The full distance medley relay team of Karsten, Coen, junior Taylor Fisher and sophomore Leela Spencer return. Sophomore Sydney Jenkins leads the sprint race returners. Jenkins qualified for the state meet in the 200-meter and 400-meter dashes. Jenkins, Fisher and Karsten were

on the 4x400-meter relay that qualified for state. Junior Anna Barr and seniors Taylor Graff and Bailey Zaruba are back from the shuttle hurdle relay team which qualified for state. Other returning athletes are seniors Kacy Cazett, Halie Doland, Brooke Henning, Brooklynn Maddison and Marianna Ulrey; sophomores Elise Axtell, Kaelee Knoll, Fran Lucas and Kelly Klingensmith. “I foresee us being more successful across all events this year. We have had many girls step up for the indoor season,” Tomas said. “Our freshmen class has done a nice job of showcasing their talents and potential. Newcomer

Alex Hutchinson has provided some additional sprint talent to the team while Brenna Schwenker has added some hurdling talent.” Tomas, who is in her fifth year as head coach for Newton, said last year’s season was rough with many meets cancelled because of inclement weather. The Cardinals finished third at the Little Hawkeye Conference track meet. Rachelle Tipton, who was the girls’ cross country head coach, and John Patterson are the assistant coaches. “It will be a very competitive season for varsity spots, and I foresee a lot of movement in the line-up to determine what our best options will be for

post-season,” Tomas said. “I cannot say enough about this senior class. This is the largest group of seniors I have had as a coach. This speaks volumes to their talents and contributions to the team through their talent and leadership. They have been impactful to our success since their freshmen year. It is exciting to see how their fouryear campaign finishes.” Other members of the team are juniors Autumn Hunt and Brenna Schwenker, sophomore Alex Hutchinson, and freshmen Kayla Botterbrodt, Bridget Carson, Michaella Cope, Molly Davros, Emma Meyer, Sarah Prendergast and Hannah Yeager.

peted, and it seems to be a partial factor in athlete turnover this year,” Bartello said. “As with any seasons, we are working on battling the elements, although this year we were more prepared for bad weather and took advantage of diversifying our workouts indoors to better prepare for the indoor and outdoor seasons.” The Cardinals had three solid indoor meets in March to get things kick-started. They head to Southeast Polk today for the first outdoor

meet of the season. Newton qualified in seven events for the Class 4A state track meet a year ago. They have four returning athletes who qualified for the state and/or the 2013 Drake Relays. Junior Deonne Harris is back in form running the hurdles for the Cardinals. Harris had a top time of 14.86 seconds in the 110-meter high hurdles a year ago. He finished 17th at the state meet and qualified for the Drake Relays. Junior Jarom Williams has

already jumped a foot further in competition this season in the long jump. His best last year was 18 feet, 11 3/4 inches. Williams qualified for the state and Drake meets in the 4x400-meter relay and was on the 4x100-meter relay that ran at the Drake Relays. Senior Brandon Fisher and sophomore Jake Bennett were on the state qualifying shuttle hurdle relay team “We have a number of returners for sprints and distance athletes, including 2013 team captain Collin Jacobsen.

We are excited to see the full potential of some of our seasoned veterans and younger returners including Jeffery Thongvanh, Earl Kimmel, Jacob Thomas, Sean Cook, Justin Simms, Devon Wolf and Zach Theis,” Bartello said. New from last year are Levi Mechener, Reese Rosenquist, Jason Wu and Noah Kimmel. Mechener, a senior, returns after taking a year off and is expected to fill a spot on the shuttle hurdle relay. Senior Jacob Walker came back to Newton this year and gives the Cardinals depth in the sprints and relays. Newton graduated its top thrower, Derek Hurt, from last year. The Cardinals will be relying on a younger group in the throwing events this season. Senior Ray Schroder leads the way. Others competing in the throws are Mason Bowes, Zakk Weatherly, Collin Daniels, Antonio Tellez-Jordan, and Lucas Montgomery. “Our numbers are down quite a bit from last year, 25 compared to last year’s near 40. We also have a very small freshman representation this year. This is going to be an interesting year for boys track in Newton,” Bartello said. “We are hopeful to qualify the shuttle hurdle relay into Drake and state again this year as well as a number of potential individuals.” Assisting Bartello are Mike Castings and John Patterson.

CMB Raider thinclads start outdoor season strong By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor JEFFERSON — Capturing first place in seven individual events, Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s boys and girls got a solid start to the 2014 outdoor track season Monday. Mother Nature cut the Greene County Early Bird meet short because of high winds and cold temperatures. “This had to be one of the windiest meets that I’ve ever been at. So, for our girls to have competed the way that they did, I am very satisfied with our performances,” CMB girls’ head coach Jerry Meinerts said. Raider boys’ head coach Neil Seales echoed those words. “I felt like we performed well, given the conditions. The winds and cold made it about as inclement as possible as the meet went on, but I felt like our guys showed good toughness and focus and put forth good efforts. Even with the weather, it was good to get outside and compete,” Seales said. For the Raider girls, Mackenzie Schmitz won the 100-meter dash in 13.54 seconds with Toni Spencer in

fourth at 14.13. Spencer claimed the top spot in the long jump with a personalbest leap of 15 feet, 6 1/2 inches. Megan Ritter placed fourth in the event at 14’3”. Payge Jurgens won the shot put with a throw of 34 feet. Bekah Pearson was sixth at 30’ 1/2” and Nichole Davies placed eighth at 29’6 1/2”. “I thought our field events went really well. We placed two girls in the high jump, long jump and discus, with some really good performances as well,” Meinerts said. “Mackenzie and Toni ran some great times into a strong cross wind, and our 4x200 ran a great time. I can’t wait to see how those times improve in better conditions.” Field events were a mainstay for the Raider boys. They won three of the four field events. Hunter Gunderson cleared the high jump bar at 5’10” to win with Jordan Coughenour in fourth at 5’6”. Zach Samson won the shot put with a toss of 54’1 1/2”. Patrick Girard placed second at 48’10 1/2” and Clayton Weltha was ninth at 37 feet. Weltha was second in the discus with a throw of 137’7” and Samson was fourth at 124’1”. Bryce Kemp was a double winner

— one on the track and one in field events. Kemp claimed first in the long jump with a leap of 20’ 1/2” with Zach Huffaker in fourth at 18’5” and Brady Stover in sixth at 17 feet. Kemp won the 110-meter high hurdle race in 15.67 seconds. Joey Nissen ran fourth in 17.81 seconds. Kemp placed second in the 100-meter dash in 11.79 seconds and Zach Schafer was ninth in 12.85.

Clowney makes case for top NFL draft pick COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Jadeveon Clowney believes he’s the NFL’s No. 1 draft pick and says he took a big step toward that goal during South Carolina’s pro day workouts. The 6-foot-5, 266-pound defensive end did position drills in front of dozens of NFL personnel, including Houston head coach

Bill O’Brien and Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley. “Yes, I do feel like I should be the first pick,” Clowney said after the session. Clowney did not lift weights or run the 40-yard dash, standing on his combine showings when he did 21 reps at 225 pounds and clocked 4.53 seconds.

Astrograph Thursday, April 3, 2014

The sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn argue over our notions of fate. The sun insists that fate is largely a matter of self-determination, while Pluto makes a sound case for the influence of mysterious, unseen forces. Whatever your beliefs, it’s a time to work with everything you have and invite help from benevolent forces. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 3). You’ll take on projects that reflect your beauty, taste and general aesthetic, and this attracts new people. Be careful not to let social fun lead to overindulgence! Spending time with healthy types inspires you to be at your best, too. By your next birthday, you’ll look even younger than you do now. Your financial highs come in May and August. Scorpio and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 20, 13 and 44. ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you find yourself counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own, you’re not doing anyone any favors. But by keeping track of all of

the good things you have going, you’ll create more blessings for another.

line of conversation. Why you? Because you’re the boldest one.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A careful assessment of recent activities will point to many correct moves and one error. To move forward, you will have to go back and fix the thing that didn’t quite line up right the first time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Aware of how small things can add up like strands of straw piled onto the proverbial camel’s back, you’ll avoid being the camel — and you’ll also try not to be the straw “piler-oner.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The saying goes, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” Of course, asking requires that you overcome any hang-ups you have about wanting to be pursued or risking rejection. But if they say yes, isn’t it worth it?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll come across an item of symbolic meaning and be momentarily awestruck. This artifact or scene gives your life a bit of context, and you’ll suddenly see how you fit into the bigger picture.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Time will defy your attempts to regulate it. Things seem to happen slowly and then, quite suddenly and overwhelmingly, all at once. Take several breaks along the way to catch your breath.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are not afraid of ending things that aren’t working out, but you still like to approach the cutoff with grace. In fact, you pride yourself on being able to part with things, people and situations on a sweet note.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because everyone really wants to talk about the elephant in the room, it only takes one comment from you to open that whole

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You like to be in the driver’s seat, but not all the time. The one in the driver’s seat typically has a destination in mind,

and sometimes it’s more fun when you don’t know exactly where things are going. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). When you know what you want, you have a laser-like focus. It won’t matter what else is going on around you — it could be total chaos and cacophony — you’ll ignore it all and move toward your goal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Be suspicious of anyone who wants to discus the money before asking you what you need. Those who are on the up-and-up will talk about the money somewhere toward the end of their pitch. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Is it possible to be visited by a person’s essence while that person inhabits a distant place? Today you will sense the presence of a loved one while you are engaged in an activity you associate with that person. COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM
