Newton, Iowa

Edwards motion to suppress urine sample overruled

OBITUARIES Lisa Ellen Carter, 49

By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor


Late last month, a Jasper County District Court judge overruled a defense motion regarding a Newton man’s urine sample taken after Iowa’s implied consent law was invoked following a traffic incident that claimed the life of a Newton teenager. In her written ruling, issued Monday, March 24, District Court Judge Martha Mertz ruled Newton police officers had reasonable grounds to invoke Iowa’s im-

plied consent laws and to request the urine sample, even though two breath tests indicated he had not been drinking and an Iowa State Trooper conducting a drug recognition exam said he did not appear to be intoxicated. According to the evidence considered in her ruling, Mertz said that on April 21, 2013, Daniel Edwards, 42, was delivering pizzas in his 2001 Chevy Blazer when he struck 14-year-old Brendan O’Brien, who had been walking in the street with a group of friends. After the teen was struck, he

was thrown onto the hood of Edwards’ vehicle and was carried for several feet before the Blazer came to a stop. O’Brien then fell to the ground; he was breathing, but motionless, at that time. One of O’Brien’s friends used a cell phone to call 911 and summon medical assistance. When first responders arrived, Mertz said, the evidence suggested they knew this was a serious — if not fatal — incident. EDWARDS See Page 5A

A Newton man charged with seven counts stemming from an alleged child pornography operation found in his home last summer has pleaded guilty to two felony sex offenses against children. James W. Brock, 72, was charged with second-degree sexual abuse, a Class B felony; three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a Class C felony; and three counts of invasion of privacy involving nudity, a serious misdemeanor. Tuesday, Jasper County Attorney Mike Jacobsen filed amended trial information, reducing the sexual abuse count to lascivious acts with a child, a Class C felony.


Francis R. Moore has always felt he had a string of luck with his time of the service during World War II. “I was only injured once during my three years of service, so I have always considered myself lucky,” Moore said. In 1943, Moore was part of the first crew to be on the USS Oakland, which was an Anti-Aircraft Cruiser used during the war. He was active on the 20 mm machine gun gunnery crew on the ship. Moore, a Seaman 1st Class, served in

the Gunnery Division. “The ship spent most of the time in Tokyo Bay during the signing of the peace treaty of World War II,” Moore said. After Moore’s tour of duty, he remembers his brother-in-law offering to take him on a cruise. “I told him that I

have seen enough water in my day,” Moore said with a laugh. Moore was born in Metz but his family moved to Newton when he was just a toddler. Moore was employed with Maytag for 37 years before he retired. “Metz truly isn’t what it used to be back in my time,” Moore said. “I went to Woodrow Wilson Elementary School and attended Newton Senior High School when it was located where the library is currently. I remember when the washing machines MOORE See Page 5A

Newton Public Library to participate in DASH for the Stash to win $1,000 Special to the Daily News The Newton Public Library is participating in the DASH for the Stash, a new contest during Money Smart Week in Iowa, April 5-12. The statewide winner will be awarded $1,000 to open or add to a retirement investment account, thanks to the MSW partner, the Investor Protection Trust. The DASH for the Stash will be played at nearly 100 libraries and other locations across the state. The contest is played much like a scavenger hunt. But instead of collecting objects, players will collect information and leave answers to quiz questions. “Our goal is to impart some financial knowledge — in a fun way — on how to save, invest, and protect your nest egg. Everyone will learn something,” said Newton Public Library Public Services Librarian Nicole Lindstrom. To play, participants go to the library to find four posters. They read each poster, access the quiz question and choose an answer. The posters cover topics of importance to savers and investors — such as understanding investment fees,

finding financial advisors, avoiding fraud, and learning about investment products. The easiest way to play DASH for the Stash is to use a smart phone or mobile device to scan each poster’s QR code, but you can also use a computer, said Lindstrom. “Getting people to focus on investing for retirement is not a game, but DASH for the Stash is a great way to engage participants who might not otherwise pay attention to this crucial part of their overall financial picture,” said Don Blandin, president and CEO of the Investor Protection Trust. “We are partnering with Iowa libraries for the DASH for the Stash contest because they are open to finding innovative ways to meet our mission: providing consumers the knowledge they need to become informed investors and help them avoid pitfalls.” Craig Goettsch, education director for the Iowa Insurance Division, said, “DASH for the Stash shows that Iowa libraries are open to finding new ways to connect with the public. Here, they are working with Money Smart Week Iowa partners to make the

Notary Services

library a place to learn about investing, which is not difficult but can involve complex products. The key is to understand the investment and the associated risk and reward before you invest, not after you part with your money.” Money Smart Week is a week of free, educational events — with no sales pitches — designed to help consumers better manage their money. It was created and is managed by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. In Iowa, more than 200 banks, credit unions, libraries, businesses, nonprofits and government organizations partner with the Chicago Fed to host more than 160 events for MSW, which is April 5-12. Thousands of Iowans will be reached through these events. Find events near you at www.MoneySmartWeek. org, under Iowa, or download a handy list at www. MoneySmartConference. com.

Legislature closer to adjournment We moved a few steps closer to adjournment this week when we passed three of the eleven budget bills we need to finish this year. It’s a step in the right direction, but we’ve still got quite a bit of work to do. There was wide, bi-partisan agreement on plans to build our By Dan Kelley skilled workforce and continue our Iowa House District 29 job creation efforts.  In addition to continuing the Skilled Worker Job Creation initiatives launched last year, I’m also pleased we’re expanding apprenticeship training to help more Iowans boost their skills and land a good job. The House also passed the budgets for agriculture, natural resources, and public safety.  While it ultimately wasn’t included in the bill this week, I was proud to support an expansion of REAP which helps protect and improve our natural resources.  We also gave another $2 million boost to our water quality efforts and plan to put more troopers on the road next year. On Wednesday, Governor Branstad signed the Iowa Speedway bill into law.  I was excited to be part of the signing-ceremony held at Newton Manufacturing.  This bill adds 10 years to a tax rebate that was legislated in 2006, when the Iowa Speedway was first established.  It does not increase the amount of the capped rebate.   This is a significant step to ensure NASCAR’s long-term vision for the Iowa Speedway becomes reality. This rebate 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 owners generated.  The recently-signed law provides for a rebate of 5% of the sales tax on goods and services sold at the Iowa Speedway, the remaining 2% will stay with the schools and local government up to $12.5 million.  Currently just over $3 million has been collected. The rebate is a low cost, low risk performance incentive for Iowa Speedway and a win for Iowans. An Iowa State University study indicated that the Iowa Speedway generates $50 million in annual statewide economic activity.  It fills hotels, restaurants, and generates sales in Jasper County and across the state.  With NASCAR ownership, this legislation, and a recovering economy, we should expect this amount to increase.  Also, NASCAR will begin paying $1.4 million in local property taxes and payments as the tax abatement expires. ••• I am proud to represent Newton, Baxter, Colfax, Kellogg, Lambs Grove, Mingo, Ira, Prairie City, and Valeria.  Feel free to contact me anytime via phone at 641-521-9260 or by email at Please visit my website at  ‘Friend’ me on Facebook and ‘follow’ me on Twitter.

Time to fix government In 1965, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, Wilbur Mills, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House. That was my first year in Congress, and I remember vividly the moment when By Lee H. Hamilton Center on Congress Mills came to the Democratic caucus to explain his plans. Many of us had been swept into office in the 1964 Democratic wave that accompanied Lyndon Johnson’s election, and we had an overwhelming majority in Congress. We could pass any bill we wanted. But Mills argued forcefully that we shouldn’t. It was crucial, he said, that we get bipartisan support for the measure: passing the law was one thing, but what really counted was its implementation. With bipartisan support, the odds were much higher that the highly controversial measure could be rolled out effectively. Despite grumbling from some caucus members, Mills made significant accommodations to find common ground with Republicans, and eventually 70 of them — half their caucus — joined us to pass the bill. Mills was playing a very smart game. What he understood was that in the end, Americans’ lives would be affected not by what happened in Congress, but by what the federal government did with the law it was handed. There are times these days when a story like that, about someone in Washington caring about the gov-

unless those under them are competent and high-performing. We have to rethink and transform how government does its business — not just on a one-shot basis, but constantly. Light has probably thought harder about these issues than anyone else inside or outside government, and there are a number of recommendations he and others make: • We have to cut the number of political appointees. In the federal government alone, they number roughly 3,000, and often don’t win their positions by merit. • We have to reduce the layers of management, and reduce the sheer number of people employed by government. • Outsourcing has gotten out of hand. In theory, private-sector contractors save taxpayers money. In reality, Light’s research shows, they can cost us twice as much. • Current civil service rules make it almost impossible to hire, promote, and fire based on merit. That has to change. Government today is highly pressured and deals with tough, complicated problems. It needs to be able to recruit and retain first-rate talent; you don’t want a second-rate lawyer negotiating a nuclear arms treaty. Unless we deal with these problems, failure is baked into the system. The American people have to demand that the President and the Congress not just enact legislation, but also implement and manage government programs effectively and efficiently. ••• Lee Hamilton is Director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

ernment’s effectiveness, feels as quaint as a tale about knights and dragons. Plenty of good, competent people serve both in Congress and within the ranks of the executive branch, but after years of abject failure — from the response to Hurricane Katrina to the initial rollout of the Affordable Care Act to the cost overruns, delays, and mismanagement that too often characterize federal programs — it’s hard to argue that the government is filled with people who know how to make it a model of efficiency and effectiveness. Some are too busy just trying to carry out policy. Others think government’s too big; they’re not interested in improving it, just in cutting it. Some use government to help their friends and allies. And some in Congress will be darned if they’ll let a drive for efficiency close a military base or federal office complex in their district. I’m reminded, though, of a famous quote by Alexander Hamilton: “A government ill-executed, whatever may be the theory, in practice is poor government.” Our government has become so big, complex, and riddled with competing agendas that its performance — its ability to execute faithfully the law — is terribly compromised. As NYU Professor Paul Light points out, there are too many decisionmakers, too many bases to touch, too many layers of management, too many managers in each layer, and too little accountability. These are crucial matters to fix. Not only do Americans want to see better performance from their government, but federal executives — including the President — cannot achieve their policy objectives

tests before taking him to the Newton Police Department for further interviews. While at the station, Hanson invoked Iowa’s implied consent laws. Edwards failed two of the three field sobriety tests, but the breath test read zero. A second breath test, using the Newton Police Department’s Datamaster unit, also registered zero blood alcohol content. Iowa State Trooper Eric Van Zee, an expert in drug recognition examinations, was called in to conduct an exam on Edwards. Although Van Zee noted some “clues” that Edwards had recently used or been under the influence of a controlled substance or drug. The decision to request a urine test was left up to Hanson. While Van Zee was conducting his exam, however, Britton reported back to Hanson regarding her inventory of Edwards’ vehicle.

Continued from Page 1A O’Brien was rushed to Skiff Medical Center and then airlifted to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, where he would die two days later as a result of his injuries. At the scene, Newton Police Officer Julie Britton spoke briefly with Edwards while conducting traffic control. She said she observed that he seemed to be “unemotional.” She was responsible for moving Edwards’ Blazer to a nearby parking lot to reopen the street for traffic, to call for a tow truck and to inventory the contents of the vehicle before it was towed away. The investigation of the incident was led by Newton Police Officer Andrew Hanson, who interviewed Edwards and conducted field sobriety and preliminary breath

Brock Continued from Page 1A Wednesday morning, District Court Judge Richard Clogg accepted a plea agreement between the County Attorney’s Office and Brock’s attorney in which Brock pleaded guilty to the lascivious acts charge and one of the sexual exploitation charges. Clogg also ordered a pre-sentencing investigation and set a sentencing date of Monday, June 9. In the meantime, Brock will remain in the Polk County Jail. Police conducted a search of Brock’s home July 2, 2013, during which 1,648 VHS tapes, 25 DVDs, two computers and 12 cameras were discovered, all of them containing or used to produce child pornography. According to police, they were contacted three days earlier by the mother of a teenage boy who had been shown several photos of the inside of Brock’s house. The boy allegedly had been shown the photos by a then-15-year-old girl who had frequented Brock’s home in the past two years, using a tanning bed

Museum Continued from Page 1A exemplifies the power of volunteerism, determination and the process of interpretation. What started out as a project to get rid of an eyesore, quickly turned into a restoration of two windmills,” Gierman said. “During a board meeting discussion of scrapping the old metal windmill and disposing of the headless wooden windmill, someone mentioned how the museum was referred to as ‘that place with the windmill on I-80.’ This gave the same volunteer, who wanted to scrap them, an idea — wouldn’t it be cool to see the windmill again?” Perrenoud was the volunteer who spoke up at that meeting, and soon, she recruited Iske and Butler to aid her in the task of repairing the windmill

During her inventory, Britton noticed the center console was not secured to the floorboard. Lifting it up, she found a “pot pipe” inside, as well as wrappers with the name “Psycho Herbal Potpourri” — a commercial name for synthetic cannibis, or K2 — as well as material in the pipe, which had not been smoked, that later tested positive as K2. Hanson, based on the failed field sobriety tests, Van Zee’s clues of previous drug use, and the discovery of the pipe and K2 in the vehicle, invoked the implied consent and requested the urine sample. The urine sample, evaluated by an independent lab, indicated K2 in Edwards’ system. Mertz identified a number of factors that supported her ruling: • Edwards had been in a serious accident and, according to at least two witnesses, had appeared to be distracted; • Britton’s testimony that

Edwards appeared to be unemotional, despite having been involved in an incident that seriously injured a young pedestrian a few minutes prior; • Edwards failed two field sobriety tests, so it was reasonable to conclude he may have injested a controlled substance or drug other than alcohol; • 321J.2 of the Code of Iowa prohibits driving with any amount of controlled substance in the body, so it is unneccessary to determine the level of intoxication before requesting a urine sample; • 321J.6 of the Code of Iowa states that requesting a urine of blood sample is allowed if an officer has reasonable grounds to request it; • K2 and the unsmoked pot pipe were found in Edwards’ vehicle; and • Van Zee discovered clues to prior drug use when exam-

and swimming pool there. Newton Police Detective Rob Burdess interviewed the mother and her 15- and 16-year-old daughters on July 2. During the interview, the daughters stated they had been either partially or fully nude in the house while changing to use the tanning beds, the pool or showers. The 16-year-old she had recently forgot some items at Brock’s house and when she went to retrieve them, he led her to a room where she saw several TV screens and a large number of VHS tapes. The 16-year-old told Burdess she entered Brock’s home on June 20, while Brock was outside of the residence, and took photos of the VHS tapes and video monitors. She showed these photos to Burdess and explained what they were of and where they were taken in the house. Brock’s attorney had filed a motion to suppress the evidence in the search. A ruling on the motion had not yet been made, according to online court documents. Brock had already pleaded guilty Feb. 19 to federal child pornography charges related to the search. In that

case, he admitted to knowingly possessing child pornography he had produced in his home. He faces up to eight years in federal prison. Sentencing on those convictions will take place Wednesday, June 25.

and acquiring the funding to do so. The trio wound up applying for, and receiving, a grant through a SSNHA program. Once the funding was acquired, the windmill was repaired, thanks to the help of an additional volunteer, Gale Harsha, and the museum later launched a new exhibit and program entitled “Winderful Tales of Jasper County.” This new exhibit chronicles everything from the early days of wind energy powering farms in rural Jasper County up to Newton being home to current wind energy conglomerates Trinity Structural Towers and TPI Composites. Gierman said this story was a key reason the museum was able to win that award. “The impact of this relatively untold story has been significant for Newton,

Jasper County and the Heritage Area,” she said. “This project is a model of how of a historical society can create relevant programs by connecting their heritage to the modern day story.” The museum was also nominated for the SSNHA, but lost out to Vesterheim Norwegian — American Museum in Decorah. This, however, did not put a damper on the Golden Silo win and in a post on its Facebook page, the good news was shared: “Our team worked two years to bring their interpretation of the harnessing of wind power in Jasper County to fruition. Join us in congratulating Linda, Dee and Mary Ann for their inspiration, as well as their hard work.” The museum will open for the season May 1, and on June 29, it will hold an open house to celebrate its awardwinning Winderful Tales program.

Other Court Developments In other court activity this week: • Jena Wright, 25, of Prairie City was released from the Jasper County Jail on $50,000 bond. She was previously out on the same amount of bond, awaiting trial on a charge of child endangerment resulting in death, neglect of abandonment, assault on a peace officer and interference with official acts. Wright was charged after a child in her care, 4-year-old Jordyn Arndt, was attacked by her family’s American Staffordshire dog. The child later died of her injuries. Wright is scheduled to go trial May 14 in that case. March 15, she was arrested following a domestic incident at her home in which she is accused of domestic abuse assault, interference with official acts and obstructing emergency communications. She was arrested again March 20 for possession of marijuana

ining Edwards. Mertz said the defense’s argument was not persuasive. She said an officer is not required to prove a violation, only reasonable grounds that a violation exists, before requesting a urine sample — a “significant difference,” she said. While she noted a “different conclusion could be drawn from the facts,” that possibility did not negate Hanson’s reasonable belief that Edwards had violated Iowa’s OWI laws. For that reason, she overruled the defense motion to suppress. A follow-up pretrial conference has been scheduled for April 14, although no trial date has been set. The deadline for discovery in the case was extended to June 2. Daily News Editor Bob Eschliman may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 423, or at

Romantic night out comes at a cost for relationship DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been together for two years. We recently spent a romantic night at a hotel, complete with dinner, drinks — the whole shebang — that he organized. I know he was a little stressed about money because he mentioned it. He asked if I could shell out some money, which I did, and when the bill came, he asked me if I could shell out some more. I was a little upset because I wasn’t planning on spending that much. He says he is going to pay me back some of it, and now I just feel bad. I told him I didn’t enjoy being put in that situation and things got awkward quickly. Now I am the one apologizing, and I feel like I ruined our night. Am I being a brat? — NEW YORK READER DEAR N.Y. READER: I don’t think so. If your boyfriend couldn’t afford to pay for the romantic evening, he should have discussed it with you beforehand so you wouldn’t be put on the spot. DEAR ABBY: I work at an elementary school, and I help out during lunch, keeping order and making sure the kids are not too loud. Two of their moms work here. The kids are bullies and have no respect for adults whatsoever. When I try to discipline them or give them a time out, they go to their moms and accuse me of targeting them because they are black. Then the moms come to me and complain and ask me why I’m “targeting” them. This is causing me a lot of stress. I can’t allow them to bully other kids, but at the same time I don’t want trouble with the parents. How can I approach this situation without it getting more complicated? — SCHOOLYARD MOM IN

FLORIDA DEAR SCHOOLYARD MOM: Because these women are preventing you from effectively supervising the children, which is your job, you should address this problem with the principal of the school. DEAR ABBY: My mother-inlaw watches my four kids so I can work outside the home. On the off chance that she can’t, she tells me my brother-in-law will watch them. While I appreciate her gesture of trying to “cover her shift,” my brother-in-law is irresponsible, suffers from severe depression and smokes pot. I don’t want to be rude, but I don’t like her leaving my kids with him. Is there an OK way to tell her that, or do I need to stop being “overprotective” and suck it up? — MOMMY OF FOUR DEAR MOMMY: It would not be rude to tell your mother-in-law that while you appreciate her watching your children, if for any reason she cannot do it, you would prefer to make your own arrangements for who will supervise them. If she asks you why, then be frank with her about your concerns — all of which are valid. That is not being overprotective; it is being conscientious.

Education Continued from Page 8A Despite all of the hassles, Banin has acclimated to Newton and her foster family very well. She attends classes at Pella Christian High School, where she has become very involved. She’s a part of the International Club, the student council and in her spare time, she even takes piano lessons. Banin is also a big fan of her foster grandmother’s homemade mashed potatoes and has loved some of the new experiences and opportunities America has given her. “My favorite part … I was in the Iowa State Capitol (Building) and I did my internship in the capitol. It was amazing for me,” Banin said. “The traditions are also completely different from Afghanistan. I like the traditions here like Thanksgiving, Christmas — they are cool.” Once she graduates form Pella Christian next year, Banin plans on going to a U.S. college to major in political science and minor in business. She talked about why she wants to finish her education in the states. “I like my school and I like education in the U.S. because you have more opportunity to improve and you have different things to learn than in Afghanistan,” Banin said. “Compare my school with Pella Christian High School, it’s a big difference.

I want to learn more and more about everything, which is why I want to continue my education here.” Another factor in Banin wanting to finish her secondary education in America is the persecution she says her school back home faces from the Afghanistan Minister of Education. “They told our school, ‘After this (year) you should not teach this.’ We have a subject by the name of humanism and they said, ‘You have to stop the humanism. You don’t have the right to teach this subject,’” Banin said. Banin plans to use her American education to bring about change in her country’s politics once she returns home after college. “I think my country needs a (quality) politician,” Banin said. “Now, those who are the top politicians are not good people and they do many corrupt (things) in Afghanistan and they don’t respect pupils over there. There is no relationship between the government and public pupils. “I’d like to go back to Afghanistan and work with those who want to bring change in Afghanistan and to do something different. We should not be the same as the people that are in power now in Afghanistan, we should be different and bring about change.” Senior staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@newtondailynews. com.

Education provides Afghanistan-native opportunities By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer Drew Schumann remembers vividly the day he met his future foster daughter — Omolbanin Rezaie, 18, who goes by Banin in the states ­— five years ago in her native county of Afghanistan.

Drew was there to do research on the country’s culture and economic development for multiple government agencies when he and his research team visited her school in Western Kabul. Banin’s school was a private school with about 3,000 students that taught what he called “a secular humanist curriculum,” which intrigued Drew. “This was very unusual in Afghanistan, because all schools in Afghanistan are run by the government and are religiously based.” Drew explained. During the visit, Drew and his team gave a presentation to a classroom at the school and when they finished, the school’s headmaster asked if anyone had any questions?

Submitted Photo Omolbanin Rezaie is a native of Afghanistan, but now lives in Newton and attends classes at Pella Christian High School. She is enjoying her experiences here in America and hopes to finish her education here.

“The rest of the students got low behind the desk — not her. At the time, she was 13 and she jumped up out of her seat and she asked us a very hard question,” Drew said. “What do you think will happen with women in Afghanistan after the U.S. Army leaves Afghanistan in 2014?” Banin asked them. “We didn’t know how to answer that question,” Drew said while

laughing. “We expected things like, ‘What’s it like to be you?’ … you don’t expect that, especially from the littlest person in the room. I think you were the youngest and smallest.” After that initial meeting, Drew and one of his research partners kept tabs on her throughout the years. When she was finally eligible to participate in a student foreign exchange program, Drew

and his wife, Ellen, worked to bring her to Iowa. Drew said it took them 10 months of going back and forth with the U.S. State Department to get her here. “September 27, I came here and I started (school) after one week,” Banin said. “She came five weeks late, but was able to quickly catch up,” Drew added.

Cardinal boys reload for 2014 soccer season By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Gone are the scorers from last year and the goalkeepers from last year, but don’t count 2014 Newton Cardinal boys out of challenging teams on the soccer field. The Cardinals are under a new head coach. Sackda Viravong is a veteran soccer coach, who moved over from a fiveyear stint as the NHS girls’ soccer head coach. Viravong’s girls’ teams were 58-27 at Newton. Viravong coached at Grinnell High School and Grinnell College. Newton came up just short of qualifying for the state tournament, losing 1-0 to Norwalk in overtime in the substate championship game in 2013. The Cardinals scored 30 goals a year ago and most came from players who graduated. They also lost their starting goalkeeper to graduation. “We have seven returning players in seniors Dillon Constant, Colton Hansen, Nathen Moorman and Chandler Sturtz, juniors Mike McCormick and Tristan Peters and sophomore Griffin Engle,” Viravong said. “We have about 45 players out this

season. Our varsity will be organized around mostly new and younger players who do not have varsity game experience.” Sturtz earned Little Hawkeye Conference honorable mention as a defender. The Cardinals finished 8-6 overall a year ago and were third in the Little Hawkeye Conference. Viravong and assistant coaches Tyler Kramer and Chad Hollenbeck are building the Cardinal varsity, junior varsity and firstyear/freshman teams on teamwork at all levels. “It will be a big chal-

lenge and the team will face huge adversity because of our inexperience. However, I look forward to the new players stepping up and taking on the speed and physical nature of varsity competition.,” Viravong said. “We will have to be organized in our offensive attacks and defensive positions. We will need to play together as a team by passing and moving the soccer ball around. Also, we will have to learn how to get everyone involved in the game and make good decisions on the field.” Working in the net

for the varsity team are senior Ryan Thompson and Engel. The Cardinals are looking for the players who can attack the net and score out front in the forward and mid-fielder spots. Viravong said competition for varsity spots is good during practices. He said the team might struggle early as the players work into roles on the field. The Cardinals see how well they’ve progressed in practices on Saturday. They host a four-team tournament at H.A. Lynn Stadium. Newton plays Benton Community of Van

Horne at 10 a.m. followed by Prairie CityMonroe taking on MidPrairie of Wellman. The losing teams of the two games play a 1 p.m. followed by the winners at 2:30 p.m. The Cardinal varsity plays at Norwalk Tuesday to kick off Little Hawkeye Conference play. Other members of the team are seniors Damian Anderson, Isaiah Dickey, Mac Icenbice, and Alec Morgan; juniors Jesse Cochran, Grant Davidson, Jackson Forck, Colby Lawson, Harrison McCarey, Patrick Murphy, Brock

Southern, Jeff Stanton, and Chris Thorpe; and sophomores Chet Adams, Grayson Bookbinder, Chase Dykstra, Nick Geerlings, Maison Grey, Jonah Keeton, Cragar Klingensmith, Duncan Lee, Michael McKinney, Dalton Nevels, Logan Norcross, and Celeb Van Baale. Freshmen on the soccer team are Spencer Elbert, Justin Fischer, Josh Gulling, Logan Heisdorffer, Reagan Maple, Jordan Norvell, Brenden Phillips, Reese Rosenquist, Tyler Stanton, Seamus VandeMore, Trey Vanderlaan, and Josh Ventling.

Cardinal girls set for another run under new coaches By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Experience, quickness, new coaches and an infusion of young players have Newton girls’ soccer moving forward in 2014. The Cardinals are coming off of a 14-4-0 season in which they came up one game shy of going to the state tournament. “We have 13 varsity players back from that team and a big freshman class coming in,” said Cathy Reiter, who takes over the NHS girls’ program this season. “We have an entirely new coaching staff, and we’re really excited and ener-

getic going into this season.” Reiter and her assistant coaches Mallory Sturtz and Hannah Davy are all new to Newton. Reiter played soccer for four years at Wartburg College in Waverly and graduated last May. Sturtz is a Newton native and a first-year teacher and coach at Newton. Davy is currently a senior at Central College in Pella and has played soccer for Central. The Cardinals open the 2014 season Thursday, April 10, at Ballard followed by a tournament at Southeast Polk on Saturday, April 12. The girls’ home opener is a tournament April 19 at H.A. Lynn

Stadium. Newton went 5-2 in Little Hawkeye Conference play a year ago. The Cardinals open conference play at home against Knoxville on April 22. The Cardinals return their top scorer and three-year starting goalkeeper in seniors Amber Karsten and Emily Forsyth, respectively. Newton scored 60 goals and only gave up 10 goals in the regular season in 2013. Karsten earned first-team All-Little Hawkeye Conference honors as a forward last year. She led the Cardinals with 13 goals and six assists. Her 13 goals was fifth in the conference. Forsyth allowed 11 goals

while minding the net for the Cardinals last year. She had 63 saves for a .851 save percentage. Forsyth was named to the LHC second team. Sophomore Victoria Jordan scored eight goals and had three assists as a forward for the Cardinals. She also earned second-team conference honors. Defensively, Newton returns LHC second-team selections Michaela Jacobsen and Rylie Udelhoven, both juniors, and sophomore Hannah Rhoads, who earned honorable mention. Also back on the field for the Cardinals are seniors Bailey Beader-

You may feel momentarily helpless to change what needs changing, but this, too, will pass as your perspective shifts. Venus in Aquarius helps with a public service announcement: You may be spinning on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam, but everyone you know, love, admire, despise or strive to be like is on the same ride. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 4). It doesn’t matter how many times you have conquered your fear before, when you do it this time, it will be a truly special experience that elevates you in every sense. An exciting relationship brings unpredictable fun to the next five weeks. In June, a stellar referral leads to work and money. Invest in July. Pisces and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 23, 21, 48 and 30. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re engaged in solving a real problem, and you’re not doing it for your health. There’s something you want, so ask for it. Be forthright. Be the one to set the next appointment or ask for a commitment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll produce something interesting. While this definitely has merit, you’ll have to take it one step further if you want to get somewhere with this. Answer the hard question: “Why should anyone care?” GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your instincts will give you an edge in all of your dealings, even the extremely logical ones. You see past how much things cost and effectively factor the intangibles into an assessment of true value. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Not everyone is as happy and well adjusted as you. People will adopt a more serious tone than you think they need. Your response is what will escalate or deflate the intensity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Work that was going fine yesterday suddenly hits a wonky patch. Start with you, not the problem you are having. How are you being affected? Chances are the dynamic is messing with your perceived status or role.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Unless you write down what you do today, you’re likely to lose track of it, and that would be a shame. The long list of (seemingly easy or at least easy for you) tasks you burn through is a testament to a life you can be proud of. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not out to do anything groundbreaking, but you do feel a strong sense of responsibility and a driving desire to do your very best. By following those two imperatives, you could accidentally break ground despite your intentions. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you get the feeling that someone is running a script on you, you immediately are turned off. You’re an individual who deserves, gives and receives custom-catered treatment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). The middle section of a long-term project is somewhat frustrating. Even though you’ve done quite a bit of work, gained a great deal of skill and shown impressive forti-

tude, there is still a long road ahead. Take heart! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). What is routine for you will be brand-new to the other person. Empathize and go slowly enough through each step that the other person can keep up. Check in often to make sure you’re both on the same page. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you hear the word “no,” be bold enough to ask whether you made a mistake of some kind. If you really want to hear the answer, you’ll learn something that will lead to the “yes” you seek. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Before you discount the complainers in your midst, consider that these types actually may be making a gesture of good faith. Inside that (rather annoying) concern will be some valuable information. COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM
