Friday, May 23

Starting this Friday, Park Centre is embarking on a five month wellness program for its residents and members of the Newton community who would like to partake. The program, “Journey to Well-Being: Discover the Path to Longevity,” is being led by Park Centre’s Lifestyles Director Lori Griffin and is based on the popular “The Blue Zone” book by Dan Buettner, which teaches the secrets to living a longer life. “‘The Blue Zone’ is a concept that is gaining a lot of national attention right now,” Griffin said. “There is a big push — especially in Iowa, with Iowa’s initiative to become the healthiest state — to find ways and develop ways to make this movement community-based.” Park Centre’s first step toward making “Journey” community-based, is by holding a Well-Being Expo this Friday, May 30, in its front parking lot from 9 to 11 a.m. There will be nine stations set up, each representing one of the “Blue Zone’s Power 9 Principles,” where participants can taste healthy recipes, get a chair massage and see other “Blue Zone” concepts in action. The expo is just the beginning for Park Centre. From June until October, Park Centre will be organizing activities based on the five cities Buettner identified as where people live the longest and healthiest lives. June will be based on Ikaria, Greece, and will include the following activities: • A community walk at 9:30 a.m. on June 4. • For $5, you can participate in healthy tea tasting on June 12 at 4 p.m. • Sample and see how healthy Greek dishes are prepared on June 20 at 2 p.m. • The month will close with an informational presentation on Greece at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 26. Activities for the following four months are still being worked out, but Griffin said her residents have already started to get excited about the entire journey and hopes members of the community also participate. “We’ve been talking about it since the beginning of the year, so they know that something has been in the works and is coming,” Griffin said. “And now, we got some concrete details that we can give them and I think they’re excited about some programming based on healthy living.”

NHS Class of 2014 Sharing the memories, preparing for the future

Agriculture Clean Water Act proposal

The Newton Senior High School Class of 2014 was honored Sunday in the 139th annual NHS commencement. The ceremony was held inside the high school upper gym due to the weather conditions over the Memorial Day weekend. After the traditional introductions of the ceremony, class commencement speaker Ryan Rosenquist delivered a speech on the class motto and how it would affect himself and his classmates for the rest of their lives. The class motto was a quote by C.S. Lewis: “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” “It means to be encouraged by a brighter future rather than to be discouraged by an imperfect past,” Rosenquist said. “It means to

move on in hope and faith that things are going to turn out well in the end in life. In our case, seniors, it means to move on in life with joy.” Rosenquist said many people look at the past to find their imperfections when they should be looking at their individual achievements and successes. He noted it is the memories of the past that the future will be built, and he was met with applause after he closed his speech with “Thank you and God bless.” Class president Sydney Bergman also spoke during commencement. “It’s a speech that is her all the time,” NHS Principal Bill Peters said. “She is a perfect Cardinal, always involved, wanting the best not just for her but her peers most of all.” During her speech, Bergman shared the many different ways she

could have delivered her speech, from her spoton Barack Obama impression to talking from a chair, but — in her words — she decided to speak from her heart. She discussed the struggles her class has faced as citizens of the United States, members of the Newton community and as high school students. She also spoke about the struggles she and her classmates may face in the future. Her advice was put simply, “Never give up.” After the commencement speeches, Peters spoke and compared the class to “diamonds in the rough.” “This class is filled with hidden treasures. They go quietly and humbly amongst their business and succeed. They do more than succeed. They shine,” Peters said. GRADUATION See Page 8A

Usual Eccentric

And the community survey says ... I got this parcel of mail called the American Community Survey from the Census Bureau the other day. On the envelope, in big bold letters, were the words “Your response is required by law.” In other words mandatory, and should my compliance not be complete some stint in a federal prison awaited me in the near future. I knew almost immediately I wasn’t filling out the survey. I don’t respond well to threatening articles of mail. I can’t say that’s a good approach to capturing my cooperation. Do this — or else. The only thing I have to do in this country is die and pay taxes. I am not wasting my time By Will E. Sanders Creators Syndicate with this administration’s equivalent of a girly survey you would find in the back of a copy of Seventeen. I filled the Census paperwork out four years ago, and that’s all the government needs to know about little old me for one decade. I gave the Census folks a ring, because that’s my deal. When I am having a bad day I like to take it out on the government where I can. I got a hold of this glad-handing government hack, Patty. I asked her three times in a row how “mandatory” filling out the survey was. She could never give me a direct response, but stressed, again, how I was required by law to fill out the survey. There would not be an America today if people did everything their government told them to do. Our inherent reluctance to roll over like trained dogs when Grandpa Government barks orders at us is one of the reasons our ancestors fled here. In fact, I believe a survey was the straw that broke the camel’s back and started the American Revolution, though I could be wrong. The pamphlet that came with the survey stated, and I quote, “We estimate this survey will take about 40 minutes to complete.” Really? Forty minutes is entirely too much time to waste on the adult equivalent of the Iowa test. I can watch an entire episode of “MythBusters” in that time if I fast forward through the commercials. Patty wasn’t impressed. She said my participation was mandatory and required by law under Title 13 of the U.S. Code, Sections 141 and 193. Huh? That’s rich, Patty. Am I supposed to know what in the world that even means? I asked for an explanation and was not given one. Title such and such of Section blah blah blah could be a law against anything. It could be a law prohibiting an American from showering in just their underwear or a ban on owning unicorns, but I wouldn’t know. She tried putting a guilt trip on me. She said the survey will assist the government with data that can be used to decide where to locate new highways and the expenditure of money for government programs like welfare. That’s just what I want, a highway running through my backyard and doling out even more welfare money to the entitled and dependent masses. My favorite line in the frequently asked questions portion of the survey’s pamphlet was if the Census Bureau would keep my information confidential. The answer read yes, and by that it meant no. I can think of countless instances where some department of the federal government leaked very serious personal information. This country has a hard time keeping confidential information confidential — isn’t that right, Edward Snowden? — so I seriously doubt my personal information will actually be safe from Third World computer hackers. No thanks. There is only one way to keep my personal information confidential and that’s by throwing the survey away. And quite frankly, I don’t care if the Census Bureau finds out about my blatantly defiant act of refusal. What are they going to do about it? Well actually, nothing. The Census Bureau hasn’t prosecuted a survey refusal case since 1970. If they come after me, I’ll just say my survey must have been lost in the mail. Next time, maybe the government can ask me a little nicer.

Empty Nest

Dan Holt runs his own path In the last three years, 46-year old Dan Holt of Mt. Pleasant has ridden his bike to work everyday (5.2 miles round trip), with the exception of three — even in subzero weather. The three days he didn’t ride were his birthdays. One week, when his bike was in the shop, he ran to work. I received an early morning email from Dan: “It’s -11 degrees ... I was riding my bike to work and the rear sprocket stopped engaging ... so I ran with my bike the last two miles. Gotta run.” Bizarre? Not really. You have to know Dan. Dan Holt has qualified for and ran two Boston Marathons (26.2 miles). He especially wanted to run this year’s Boston Marathon because of last year’s tragic bombings. Training for the spring marathon was a real challenge this winter because of the weather. Only two of his training runs were above 30 degrees, which only fueled his determination. Like the Boston Marathon, Dan Holt is Boston strong, resilient, and never gives up. But running the Boston Marathon this year wasn’t enough. With his wife, Amy (number one supporter), after completing the Boston Marathon, they hopped another airplane, and flew to Spokane, Washington, so that Dan could run the Bloomsday 12K (7.5 miles). This was the tenth anniversary of Dan running the Bloomsday 12K, where it all started. Dan and Amy are formerly from Ft. Madison. However, 10 years ago, they lived in Spokane. Dan was overweight, out of shape, and beginning to shows signs of health problems. He

By Curt Swarm Guest Columnist wanted to do something about that. The Bloomsday 12K drew him like a magnet. He tried running (slowly) two miles. The next week he ran three. He began running three days a week. The weight peeled off him, and he entered and completed the Bloomsday 12K. Other races followed. He registered for a marathon. The cut off time was five hours. Gulp. He didn’t know if he could run a marathon (26.2 miles) in five hours. But he did, in four hours, 24 minutes. At his next marathon, he ran it in three hours, 26 minutes, knocking off nearly an hour from his previous time. He was ecstatic. His friends were amazed. At one half-marathon (13.1 miles), his time, if extended to a full marathon, would qualify him for the Boston Marathon. The Boston Marathon, the Mt. Everest of marathons, is the only marathon in the United States that requires entrants to qualify. At this point, Dan had lost nearly 100 pounds. But he doesn’t like to dwell on the weight loss. He wants to be known as the person he is now, not what he used to be. The important thing for Dan was targeting an event, setting a goal to complete it, and then doing it. The weight loss was a side benefit. For many of

his early races, his only goal was to complete the race without walking. He entered a marathon with the intention of qualifying for Boston, but failed. He entered another marathon, just to enjoy himself, and qualified! Shows to go you. All total, he’s run 19 marathons, and completed nine triathlons (swim, bike, run). His goal is to run and complete a marathon a year. One year, during his annual marathon, he had to drop out because of leg cramps. In order to get his marathon in that year, he had to run one on New Year’s Eve. Dan also swims three times a week. Is he a high-mileage runner? No. His goal is to get in 20 miles a week.

Never suffering from a prolonged injury, he intends to enjoy a lifetime of running. Living in Mt. Pleasant now, close to his hometown of Ft. Madison, Dan has completed his first RAGBRAI. This year will be his third year of participating in Relay Iowa, a relay run across the state. Soft spoken, Dan sighs, “Crazy and determined look similar.” He doesn’t like to talk about himself.

Woman’s HIV status casts shadow on budding romance DEAR ABBY: I’m a 32-year-old woman who is HIV-positive. My colleague — who is unaware of my status — recently introduced me to a relative of hers who is also lonely and looking for someone to settle down with. We “clicked” and seem to complement each other in every way, although we haven’t had any sexual encounter. My fear is, how do I disclose my status without being rejected? He seems to have big plans for us, which include settling down and having kids in the future. I am also worried that he might be angry with my colleague and not believe that she is unaware of my status. Please help me get out of this dilemma. — IN A SPOT IN SOUTH AFRICA DEAR IN A SPOT: I’ll try, but there are no guarantees. Much depends upon the strength of this man’s feelings for you. It is very important that you have a frank discussion with him before the relationship goes any further. The fact that you are HIV-positive may be problematic, but it does not mean you cannot have a family together if you wish in the future. Medications and other medical interventions can help keep the virus from being transmitted to your children, and condoms can protect your partner. If you are upfront about your status, the chances are better that he will believe you when you tell him his relative was not aware that you have HIV when you were introduced. In a case like this, honesty is the best policy. DEAR ABBY: I have three grown sons, all educated, married and successful. Their wives are the daughters I never had, and I treasure them and their children. I’m blessed with three perfect grandchildren under the age of 5. The problem is my sons. Although I raised them carefully with love, they are like teenagers. They constantly denigrate and fight with each other, and measure my time with them on a competitive scale. I no longer want to be involved

with their bickering. Their dad, from whom I am separated, is not involved. This has created a sad cloud in my otherwise sunny life. I need some advice. — TIED IN KNOTS IN INDIANAPOLIS DEAR TIED IN KNOTS: Have you told your sons how uncomfortable their sibling quibbling makes you? If you haven’t, you should. And if that doesn’t improve the situation, I suggest you see them separately. And if that causes problems, please don’t make it YOUR problem. DEAR ABBY: Over the past 10 years or so, I have noticed a vast increase in people who talk while they are yawning. These “yawn-talkers” are not only rude, but also almost impossible to understand. I wouldn’t normally care, except that a lot of people do it where I work. Is it OK to tell them to stop yawntalking? Or would I be the rude one in the scenario? — WIDE AWAKE IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR WIDE AWAKE: It wouldn’t be rude to ask someone to repeat the statement because you were unable to understand what the person was trying to say. And, by the way, polite folks cover their mouths when they yawn to avoid spraying saliva on the person in front of them.

AFBF and EPA at odds over Clean Water Act By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer One of the biggest names in the agriculture industry — the American Farm Bureau Federation — has put its foot down on a rule that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have proposed to add to the Clean Water Act. On March 25, the EPA announced the proposed rule change and posted a summary of it, which reads: “The purposes of the proposed rule are to ensure protection of our nation’s aquatic resources and make the process of identifying   ‘waters of the United States’ less complicated and more efficient. The rule achieves these goals by increasing CWA program transparency, predictability and consistency. “This rule will result in more effective and efficient CWA permit evaluations with increased certainty and less litigation. This rule provides increased clarity regarding the CWA regulatory definition of ‘waters of the United States’ and associated definitions and concepts.” The EPA definition of “waters of the United States” is: “traditional navigable waters; interstate waters, including interstate wetlands; the territorial seas; impoundments of traditional navigable waters, interstate waters, including interstate wetlands, the territorial seas, and tributaries, as defined, of such waters; tributaries, as defined, of tradi-

tional navigable waters, interstate waters, or the territorial seas; and adjacent waters, including adjacent wetlands. Waters in these categories would be jurisdictional ‘waters of the United States’ by rule — no additional analysis would be required.” After careful analysis of the proposal, AFBF President Bob Stallman released his official statement on the matter on April 1. One of his, and many others’, biggest complaint is the EPA’s definition of waters of the United States. “The EPA proposal poses a serious threat to farmers, ranchers and other landowners,” Stallman said. “Under EPA’s proposed new rule, waters — even ditches — are regulated even if they are miles from the nearest ‘navigable’ waters. Indeed, socalled ‘waters’ are regulated even if they aren’t wet most of the time. EPA says its new rule will reduce uncertainty, and that much seems to be true: there isn’t much uncertainty if most every feature where water flows or stands after a rainfall is federally regulated.” “… (AFBF) will dedicate itself to opposing this attempted end run around the limits set by Congress and the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has ruled repeatedly that Congress meant what it said: ‘navigable waters’ does not mean all waters. This proposed rule shows that EPA refuses to accept those limits.” Other  tactics AFBF has implored in its fight against the proposal, included developing

Metro Creative Connection

a new website, http:// ditchther, and creating the social media hashtag terms of “#DitchTheRule” and “#WOTUS.” Some individual AFBF branches have even taken to releasing videos on Youtube. The most popular of the videos parodies the hit song “Let it Go” from the Disney movie “Frozen” to create the song “That’s Enough,” which includes lyrics such as: “Once more the EPA is Knocking at our door/ With a brand new rule “They want to regulate us more/They’ve tried before and we said ‘no’ “Why should they control what doesn’t flow?/Agriculture is safe, that’s what they say” In addition, AFBF, a number other national and state agencies have rallied against this rule, among them are the Iowa Pork Producers

Association, National Cattleman’s Beef Association and National Corn Growers Association. The EPA hasn’t released any new statements on the matter since its initial release, however, according to its website, the proposed change “does not broaden coverage of the CWA jurisdiction” because “the proposed rule is consistent with the Supreme Court’s more narrow reading of Clean Water Act jurisdiction.” The website also says that the EPA has spent the last three years developing this new rule and that it “listened to important input from the agriculture community. Using the input from those discussions, the agencies then worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure that concerns raised by farmers and the agricultural industry were addressed.”

USDA’s Farm Service Agency has announced fruit, vegetable and wild rice provisions that affect producers who intend to participate in certain programs authorized by the Agricultural Act of 2014.   “Similar to previous programs that we’ve administered, planting fruits, vegetables or wild rice on base acres on a farm can result in a payment reduction for program participants,” said John Whitaker, State Executive Director for the Iowa FSA.   Producers who intend to participate in the Agriculture Risk Coverage or Price Loss Coverage programs are subject to an acrefor-acre payment reduction when fruits and nuts, vegetables or wild rice are planted on the payment acres of a farm.  Payment reductions do not apply to mung beans, dry peas, lentils or chickpeas.  Planting fruits, vegetables or wild rice on acres that are not considered payment acres will not result in a payment reduction.  Farms that are eligible to participate in ARC/PLC but are not enrolled for a particular year may plant unlimited fruits, vegetables and wild rice for that year but will not receive ARC/PLC payments for that year.  Eligibility for succeeding years is not affected. Planting and harvesting fruits, vegetables and wild rice on ARC/PLC acreage is subject to the acre-for-acre payment reduction when those crops are planted on either more than 15 percent of the base acres of a farm enrolled in ARC using the county coverage or PLC, or more than 35 percent of the base acres of a farm enrolled in ARC using the individual coverage. For additional information on fruit, vegetable and wild rice rules, visit www.fsa.usda. gov or contact your local USDA Service Center.

Farmers urged to fight Palmer Amaranth Farmers still have a fighting chance to stop Palmer Amaranth, a tough yield-robbing weed, from spreading in Iowa. The Iowa Soybean Association and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach are working together to provide information to keep the weed at bay. Native to the southwestern United States, Palmer was first officially identified in Iowa last September. “We’re at a point that we can really restrict how quickly it spreads,” said Mike Owen, ISU weed specialist. Experts say Palmer outbreaks in the South have caused complete crop failures. A mild to moderate infestation can result in soybean yield losses of up to 30 percent, with a potential revenue hit of more than $200 per acre. Early identification and action is paramount to mitigate the spread of Palmer, which resembles waterhemp, in the state. ISU weed specialists are available to help identify Palmer Amaranth, which is vital for appropriate planning. Late May is the time to start scouting for Palmer, but it will germinate throughout the growing season. For more take-action tips, visit

Graduation Continued from Page 1A Peters said the NHS Class of 2014 took every opportunity and was truly ready for the world. The class earned $2.1 million dollars in scholarship money and earned more than 1,000 college credit hours, which was all free. “Many of the students who graduate here today will enter college or tech schools as sophomores, and others will be well on their way toward completing their freshman year,” Peters said. During his speech, Peters said he recently was asked why he is proud to be a Cardinal. “When a super star athlete forgoes their physical education

class so they can help a wheelchair-bound classmate, when I see the class pack tens of thousands of meals for the hungry or raise money for the homeless or another charity, when our student body packs the gym for our specialneeds students so they are stars for a day on the basketball court or when our disabled students dance with our Pacesetters, I am proud to be a Cardinal,” he said. In the midst of the pride and excitement of the graduation ceremony, something was left out. Class vice president Emily Forsyth didn’t get the chance to deliver her poem for graduation. “She is a great student-athlete and an amazing student,” Peters said. “I feel abso-

lutely horrible that the error was made because it was a great poem for the class.” The anonymous poem is titled “Look Well to This Day” and was written around 50 BC. It is printed below: “Look well to this day, For it and it alone is life.  In its brief course  Lie all the essence of your existence:  The Glory of Growth  The Satisfaction of Achievement  The Splendor of Beauty  For yesterday is but a dream,  And tomorrow is but a vision.  But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,  And every tomorrow a vision of hope.”

Bleeker, Harris, Coen, distance medley relay take sixths By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor DES MOINES — Sixth-place medals equaled smiles for Newton Senior High athletes Friday and Saturday at the 2014 Iowa State Track and Field Championships. Drake Stadium was drenched in sunshine all day Friday while Saturday was overcast and cooler in the morning then the sun came out, heating things up overall and on the Blue Oval.

“They’re fast, They’re fast,” were the first words out of junior Deonne Harris’ mouth following a sixth-place finish in the Class 4A 110-meter high hurdle final Saturday. A final he missed by an eyelash a year ago. “Last year I was so nervous here and I hit that hurdle and it threw me off. I was neck-and-neck with first place in the preliminaries. This year I came here just with qualify, qualify on my mind,” Harris said. “I feel really good about placing sixth today. My start was really good.

They’re fast. I was the only junior in the final so next year is mine,” Harris added with a smile. Harris posted a time of 14.75 seconds in the hurdle final. Senior Sydne Davis of Des Moines Roosevelt won the gold in 14.21 seconds. There are eight medals awarded at the state meet. Newton senior Michaela Bleeker had a “great experience” finishing her career in Class 4A state track meet competition. Bleeker, who had finished 16th in the 4A discus event on

Thursday, competed in her best event Friday — the shot put. “Last year I didn’t place here and my goal for this year was to qualify again and place in the top eight,” Bleeker said following Friday’s shot put event. “She beat me by a half-inch for fifth place, but I’m really happy about placing my final year.” Bleeker made a strong throw of 37 feet, 9 1/2 inches on her final throw in NEWTON See Page 3B

Hawks’ Meyer is 1A 100-meter champion; Hawk boys win 4x100-meter state title By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor DES MOINES — Determination and desire are powerful tools in athletics. Mix in speed and talent, championships come. Finishing second two straight years in the Class 1A 100-meter dash motivated LynnvilleSully’s Meliek Meyer. The senior was not going to be denied at the 2014 Iowa State Track and Field Championships. “I just wanted it. Two years in a row it was second, second. This year I finally buckled down and did some hard work and I won it,” Meyer said after his state championship run down the straightaway on Drake Stadium’s Blue Oval Saturday. Meyer showed he was serious in the preliminary races, posting the fastest qualifying time in the 1A 100-meter dash. In Saturday’s final, Meyer won the first individual state championship for Lynnville-Sully since 2004 in a blazing time of 11.13 seconds. Senior Bailee Samson was in that final sprint also, claiming third place in 11.56 seconds. “I had a pretty good start and finished strong. Taking third at state, I can’t complain about that,” Samson said. Back up one day, Meyer and Samson were LYNNVILLE-SULLY See Page 3B

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Emotion came out when Lynnville-Sully senior Meliek Meyer crossed the finish line anchoring the Hawks to a Class 1A state championship in the 4x100-meter relay race Saturday.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News CMB’s Bryce Kemp is ahead of all the other hurdlers in a Class 2A preliminary race of the 110-meter high hurdles at the state track meet in Des Moines. Kemp came up just short of defending his 2A title, taking second in Saturday’s finals at Drake Stadium.

DES MOINES — Bryce Kemp ran faster in the 2014 finals than he did in the 2013 finals of the Class 2A 110-meter high hurdles. The CollinsMaxwell/Baxter junior couldn’t defend his Class 2A state title in the high hurdles Saturday at Drake Stadium. Kemp had the fastest time going into the state meet and posted the fastest time in qualifying

heats Friday. On Saturday, Kemp posted a 14.72-second timing in the finals to take second to Woodard Academy’s Darius ScottCrayton, 14.51. Kemp earned the second-place medal as the only junior in the Class 2A 110-meter hurdle final at the 2014 Iowa State Track and Field Championships.

PCM begins play tonight with new coach By Ben Schuff Daily News Sports Writer Prarire City-Monroe’s softball team has a little extra work to do at the start of this softball season. The Mustangs open their season tonight against Nevada under the direction of first-year head coach Whitney Plein, who was officially made the new head coach on May 20. Plein and PCM play three games in four days beginning today, which will give the team plenty of time together to form a bond the new coach is hoping to form as quickly as possible. “I feel like I’ve gotten to know them, in the three days that I’ve seen them, I’ve gotten to know them as well as I can,” Plein said on May 23. “Just trying to make connections and build relationships with them and them with me. I feel like for the situation, I feel pretty confident in what I know so far. There’s still more to learn. “It’s been a very quick turnaround. Got a lot of things to do on the checklist, but just kind of taking it day by day and getting done the things that need to get done and worrying about everything else as it comes.” Plein graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in December of 2012 after playing as an infielder for the Panthers. She also spent some of her time in Cedar Falls as an assistant high school coach. Most recently, Plein has been the head coach for a traveling fall softball team based out of Des Moines. Plein said while she’s confident in the talent the team has, one of her biggest concerns heading into play is the short amount of time she’s had with her new squad.

“I haven’t had much time with them and I won’t have much time with them and I’m worried how we’ll respond to each other,” she said. “From what I saw the first practice, a lot of these girls have a great fundamental base and what I came into is … a set of girls who are ready to play. It just takes some fine tuning and getting used to things that I do or my expectations.” PCM returns the majority of its team that finished last season with a record of 21-15. The Mustangs loss one of their biggest contributors in 2013 senior Payge Edwards, a thirdteam all-state selection last summer who batted .384 and finished 12-12 pitching record. Helping replace Edwards in the circle will be freshman Kayla Jennings, who pitched 77 innings as an eighth grader and won nine games. Jennings also provided major contributions offensively, driving in 22 runs and hitting .325. Abigail Gibson also returns after an impressive junior season in which she batted .389 and led the Mustangs with 10 home runs and 38 RBIs. “Offensively, we’ll really be aggressive,” Plein said. “We’re working to put the ball in play, whether that means a line drive single or double or a ball over the fence, or a roll-over ground ball that we beat out – just get on base and move people around is my philosophy. “We’re going out to get better as a team and individually and to win games and get to state and win state. We’re going to take it day by day and that’s the ultimate goal for us. I have high expectations for these girls. I think they can do very well.”

Johnson ends drought at Coca-Cola 600 CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Defending Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson passed Matt Kenseth with nine laps to go and won the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night for his first victory of the season. Johnson was dominant at Charlotte Motor Speedway, winning the pole Thursday night and leading 165 of 400 laps in NASCAR’s longest race. Kevin Harvick was second, followed by Kenseth and Carl Edwards. Jamie McMurray, the All-Star race winner last weekend at the track, was fifth. Johnson broke a tie with Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison for Cup victories at the track with seven. It was Johnson’s fourth triumph in the 600 and his 67th overall victory. Whenever Johnson fell behind it wasn’t long before he got back on top, leading 10 times during the race. The final push came when he swept past Kenseth in Turn 4 and was never pressured the rest of the way. Johnson broke a 13-race winless streak that seemed more of a concern for others than for the six-time champion. Still, he was happy to celebrate in Victory Lane once again — and give competitors something to think about. “They know we are awake,” Johnson said. “Hopefully, the 48 is heading that way and we can give other people something to think about.” Harvick had won two of the past three 600s and led 100 laps this time. He fell back in the latter stages as he dealt with car problems and could not get back to the front. “We needed a 700-mile race to get back to where we needed to be,” Harvick said.

Brad Keselowski held the lead and appeared to have out-pitted Johnson’s No. 48 group with a final stop 55 laps from the end. But a vibration in the Penske machine sent Keselowski back to the pits and a lap down. Much of the pre-race attention was centered on whether Kurt Busch or points leader Jeff Gordon would make it to the starting line. Busch because of his 850-mile trek South from Indiana and Gordon because of back spasms that cropped up Thursday after qualifying and were still severe enough Saturday for him to leave the track early after just a few laps of practice. But both were there when the green flag dropped, although Busch’s arrival was far more dramatic with the helicopter circling the track and landing on the infield close to the start-finish line about an hour before the race began. He received loud cheers and plenty of high-fives from fans and took a seat on the bench where driver introductions were made. As colleagues and competitors made their way up the steps, most made sure to chat up Busch or shake his hand on a job well done. Busch had a bit of luck to stay on the lead lap, twice earning a lucky dog bid after going a lap down to return among the leaders. He eventually reached the top 10 and was running 16th when smoke started pouring out of his Stewart-Haas Chevrolet and sent him behind the wall and to a 40th-place finish. “Kind of a shame, kind of symbolizes how it’s been for the Haas Automation team,” Busch said. “We gave it our all with the way we were clawing our way up there.”

PANORA — Prairie CityMonroe’s Mustangs advance to the Iowa Class 2A State Boys’ Golf Tournament. The Mustangs turned in a third-place finish last Friday’s Class 2A District tournament at Lake Panorama National Golf Course. The Mustangs finished one stroke out of second place. Panorama won the district title with a 313 followed by Carroll Kuemper with a 333 and PCM at 334. Pella Christian’s Eagles combined for a 346, which was fourth among the seven-team field. The top three teams advance to the state tournament. Seniors Justin Beener and Devon Woody led the Mustangs with

an 80 and an 81, respectively, for the 18-hole district tournament. Junior Wade Hill shot an 85 followed by sophomore Reid Jenkins with an 88 and senior Ryan Jennings with an 89. Freshman Ryan Hill shot a 102. PCM travels to Livermore for the Class 2A state tournament this Friday and Saturday. The tournament will be played at Spring Valley Golf Course starting at 8 a.m. Friday. Pella Christian ended its season at the district tournament. Graham Howerzyl carded an 84 and Justin Stravers had an 85. Mason Howerzyl shot an 88 and Mitch Fopma finished at 89. Other scores for the Eagles were: Jordan Pleima, 91 and Josh Posthuma, 95.

Ben Schuff/Daily News Macy Leonard kicks the ball during Newton’s 5-0 win over Boone on May 23.

Newton shuts out Boone By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Newton’s Cardinals recorded another shutout Friday night In front of a home crowd, the Class 2A 13th-ranked Newton girls powered past visiting Boone, 5-0. The Cardinals improved to 11-3. Newton finishes the regular season tonight at home against Norwalk in a Little Hawkeye Conference game.

Senior Amber Karsten’s hat trick — three goals — led the Cardinals. Michaela Jacobson, a defender for the Cardinals, scored a goal on a corner kick and Ryanne Rausch added the other goal. Emily Forsyth, senior goalkeeper, had one save on the night. Newton head coach Cathy Reiter said Forsyth only had one other touch of the ball the rest of the time “as we just played a lot of offense.” Newton was able to play everyone suited up for the game.

Hunter-Reay wins Indy 500 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ryan Hunter-Reay has become the first American to win the Indianapolis 500 since 2006, making a dramatic pass of Helio Castroneves on the final lap to win Sunday’s race in the second-closest finish in history. Hunter-Reay was passed for the lead with three laps remaining a year ago and went on to finish third.

But after swapping the lead with Castroneves following a restart with six laps to go, it was the Andretti Autosport driver who made the final and decisive pass. Castroneves finished second in his bid for his fourth Indy 500 victory. Marco Andretti was third and Carlos Munoz was fourth.

Dodgers’ Becket throws no-hitter PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Josh Beckett pitched the first no-hitter of his decorated career and the first in the majors this season, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Philadelphia Phillies 6-0 on Sunday. Beckett struck out six, walked three and didn’t come close to allowing a hit against a lineup that included two former NL MVPs and four former All-Stars. The 34-year-old right-hander, who needed surgery last year after a nerve condition left him unable to feel his fingertips, threw 128 pitches. He fanned Chase Utley on a called strike three to end the game. Beckett (3-1) pitched the Dodg-

ers’ first no-hitter since Hideo Nomo beat Colorado at Coors Field in 1996, and the 21st in franchise history. Sandy Koufax threw four. It was first no-hitter in the majors since Miami’s Henderson Alvarez did it against Detroit on the final day of the 2013 season. Beckett became the first visiting pitcher to throw a no-hitter in Philadelphia since Montreal’s Bill Stoneman in 1969 at Connie Mack Stadium. A three-time All-Star, Beckett was the MVP of the 2003 World Series. A.J. Burnett (3-4) lost in a matchup against his former Marlins teammate.

Newton: Cardinal girls’ set new school mark in distance medley relay state race Continued from Page 1B the preliminaries, solidifying a spot in the finals. Her first throw of the finals was two inches further. Caroline Slaughter of Waukee moved ahead of Bleeker on a 38’1” throw on her first attempt in the finals. Bleeker stepped into the throwing ring for the final time of her career, launching a 38’ 1/2” throw. Bleeker collected the sixth-place medal in the 4A shot put. She holds the NHS school mark of 40’1/2”, which she set earlier this season. “It’s a great privilege to qualify for state, You have to work hard to achieve what you want,” Bleeker said. “I set my goals really high this year. I’m happy going out the way I am. In the discus, I did so much better than I did last year. I went out on a throw of 100 feet and that’s good for me.” Bleeker was one of three Newton seniors to conclude their career competing at the three-day state track meet. Levi Michener ran his final race on Thursday with the Cardinal boys’ 4x110-meter shuttle hurdle relay team, which did not make the finals. On Friday, senior Amber Karsten ran three relay races for the Newton girls. The first one was the best and netted her a sixth-place medal with her teammates

in the distance medley relay finals. Distance medley relay teams were on the Blue Oval first on Friday morning. Karsten led off for the Cardinals and handed the baton off to sophomore Leela Spencer. Spencer handed it off to sophomore Sydney Jenkins, then sophomore Grace Coen ran the anchor leg. “We were just going for the school record,” Coen said. “When we looked up and saw our placement, it was tremendous. We were happy to be a team

together.” The Cardinal foursome did establish a new school record — 4 minutes, 9.09 seconds. Also on Friday, Karsten combined with sophomore Alex Hutchinson, Spencer and Fisher for a season’s-best time of 1:46.88 in the 4x200-meter relay, taking 15th. She combined with juniors Taylor Fisher and Hailey Coy and Jenkins in the 4x400-meter relay preliminaries for a season’s-best 4:07.54, finishing 13th and not ad-

vancing to the finals. Karsten ran her personal best, 26.03 seconds, in Thursday’s 200-meter dash preliminaries. She did not advance to the finals. Junior Anna Barr ran in the 400-meter hurdle finals Friday. Barr placed 20th in 1:11.13. Coen picked up one state medal, sixth, Thursday in a school-record performance in the 3,000-meter race. The sophomore came back Saturday to compete in the 800-meter and 1,500-meter finals. Coen ended up 18th in the 800 Saturday morning in 2:22.07. She came back under warmer weather conditions on the track to run the 1,500 meters in the afternoon. “I was super light-headed and dizzy after the 800. I couldn’t walk without falling over my own feet, so the fact I could pull through this race, I’m happy with my placement and my time,” Coen said after the 1,500 meter race. Coen battled on the track to claim the sixth-place medal in 4:42.50. “It’s taxing to run all three distance races. Right, now I can hardly feel my legs,” Coen said. “I was ecstatic about the 3,000. I did not expect a good time that but that’s my personal record by 14 seconds. Running the the 3,000 is a mental thing.”

Class 2A: Colfax-Mingo girls, CMB boys, PCM girls claim state track medals Continued from Page 1B group ran their fastest race of the season and broke a 33-year old school record in 4:19.02,” said Zach Tomas, Tigerhawk girls’ head coach. “They were six seconds faster than at the state qualifying meet and delivered a very special performance.” Tomas said he thought it helped that Albright and Tjaden had competed in the state meet a year ago. “I was nervous because we had all underclassmen and I wasn’t sure if I had done enough to prepare them the week of state. It is really exciting to think these girls will all return next year with state experience,” he said. The previous Colfax-Mingo distance medley relay record was 4:20.25 set in 1981 by Martina Flattery, Teri Dagnillo, Marlene Berg, and Megan Cogley. In that same distance medley relay race finals, PCM’s junior Mackenzie Clark, sophomore Emily Hugen, sophomore Ashley Van Gorp and junior Rachel Peter turned in a 19thplace finish. They ran the race in 4 minutes, 25.46 seconds. Later on Friday, senior Lexi Kain anchored the PCM girls’ 4x200-meter relay team to a second-place finish and a new school record. Freshman Jayci Vos combined with Clark and

Van Gorp and Kain to run the race in 1:45.60 seconds, earning a state meet medal. Vos captured the fourth-place medal in the 2A 400-meter hurdles in 1:06.44, which was a personal best and a new PCM record, on Friday. Kain returned to the track Saturday to claim the eighth-place medal in the 100-meter high hurdles in 16.79 seconds. Peter was edged out of the medals in the 1,500-meter run. She placed ninth in a personal-best time of 4:58.82 just behind Erika Douma of Western Christian of Hull, 4:58.59. PCM’s 4x400-meter relay team of Vos, freshman Katie Vande Wall, Van

Gorp and freshman Rachel Stafford ran ninth — 4:11.04 — in Friday’s preliminaries. Fastest eight move to the finals. In Saturday’s 800-meter sprint medley relay timed finals, the team of Clark, Hugen, Kain and Vos won its heat in 1:54.34, but had to sit and watch two more heats run. Pella Christian and CMB had teams running the sprint medley relay finals Saturday morning also. The Eagles’ freshman Kathryn Van Tuyl, sophomore Sarah Meyer, senior Leah Breon and junior Christa Veenstra turned in a heat-winning 1:53.17 with CMB’s team of junior Maddy Poage, sophomore Toni Spencer, junior Mackenzie Schmitz and sophomore

Bridget Hurley placing third in that heat race in 1:54.25. It was hurry up and wait for the three area teams. Pella Christian celebrated, placing seventh overall and earning a state medal. The Mustangs placed 10th behind CMB, which was ninth. “This was our best time. We just wanted to so our best,” Van Tuyl said. “It takes all four of us to run a relay,” Breon said. “All three of these girls ran their hearts out today and that’s all we ask.” CMB’s 4x100-meter relay team of Poage, Spencer, Hurley and Schmitz finished 17th in the preliminaries Friday. CMB senior Abbie Haubert placed 19th in the 2A girls’ discus with a throw of 110 feet, 1 inch and freshman Mikayla Eslinger was 22nd at 100’8”. The CMB boys’ 4x110-meter relay team of junior Joey Nissen, seniors Austin Moorman and Jordan Coughenour and Kemp captured the seventh-place medal Saturday morning in 1:00.49. Moorman finished 23rd in 800-meter run in 2:04.79. On Friday, Coughenour placed 12th in the 400-meter hurdle finals in 56.15 seconds. Senior Zach Samson finished 14th in the discus with a throw of 140 feet, 7 inches.

Lynnville-Sully: Freshman girl takes medal in 1A discus as Hawk athletes do well Continued from Page 1B part of a senior quartet which set a new school record in claiming second in the 1A 4x200-meter relay race at state. Payton Haack and Brandon Dunsbergen provided the other two fast legs to the relay, finishing in 1 minute, 32 seconds. “We can’t be disappointed in second. We all had good handoffs and ran well. Madrid edged us out right at the finish,” Samson said. On Saturday, Samson and Meyer ran one more race individually but together. In the 200-meter dash, Meyer almost pulled off the double but got nipped at the end by Kyle Groeneweg of West Lyon at Inwood, who was second in the 100 meters to Meyer. Meyer gathered in the second-place medal in the 200 in 22.56 seconds behind Groeneweg’s 22.10. Samson finished fourth in 22.79 seconds. “Oh my gosh, I’m not fond of the 200,” Meyer said with a smile follow-

ing the race. “No, it was a fun race and real close right to the end.” “The 200 is too far for me too,” Samson said. “I had a clean start and happy to finish fourth overall.” Samson and Meyer then regrouped to end their careers for the LynnvilleSully’s Hawks in the best fashion. They combined with sophomore Sage Ehresman and senior Caden Doll to capture the 1A 4x100-meter relay state championship in school-record time, 43.92 seconds. That was the fastest time in Class 1A in the state all season. It was a great birthday gift for Doll. And it secured third place in the team standings for Lynnville-Sully, which ties the highest team finish by a Lynnville-Sully boys’ track team. “I’m glad I got to run with this awesome group of guys,” Doll said after the foursome won the relay race, “I got to experience not just making it to state but winning a state championship.” “I’m so blessed to have these three

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News State champions — Bailee Samson, Sage Ehresman, Caden Doll and Meliek Meyer of Lynnville-Sully captured the Class 1A 4x100-meter relay state championship Sat-

seniors to run with. They’ve showed me the way with their leadership and guided me all season,” Ehresman said. “I’m so happy to get this state championship.” Samson said he had a good start on the lead-off leg of the 4x100-meter relay race and had a good handoff to Ehresman. Ehresman passed the baton to Doll, who put it in the hands of Meyer on the anchor leg. “We said it all weekend that we were going to win it. We went out and did it,” Meyer said. “We all ran well and had good handoffs to give ourselves the chance to do it and we did.” Senior Darin Hofer collected a state medal also Saturday. Hofer finished seventh in the 1A 110-meter high hurdles in 15.65 seconds. Doll ran in Friday’s preliminaries, finishing

10th overall in 15.99. The top eight advanced to the finals. The Hawk 4x400-meter relay team of Haack, Hofer, B. Dunsbergen and Doll ran 19th in Friday’s preliminaries in 3:37. THE TOP PERFORMANCE for the Lynnville-Sully girls at the state meet was turned in by freshman Elizabeth Van Manen on Friday. Van Manen pulled duty on Friday morning, competing in the Class 1A discus event and running the lead-off leg of the Hawks’ distance medley relay team. Van Manen checked in at the discus then moved to the track for her 200-meter leg of the relay race. She handed off the baton to sophomore Kasiah Ehresman and went back to the throwing ring. Lynnville-Sully’s distance medley relay team of Van Manen, Ehresman, junior Cori Rice and senior Tara Vos finished 20th in 4:37.28. The Hawk 4x400-meter relay team of Ehresman, Vos, Rice and junior Madison Rasmusson placed 18th in the preliminaries on Friday in 4:18.33. Back to the discus ring, Van Manen had a great first throw — a personal best and school record distance of 111’9”. It was good enough to get her to the finals. On her last throw of the event, she pushed her school record to 113’11” and claimed the sixth-place medal. On Saturday, Rasmusson ran 12th in the 800-meter run in 2:27.48. Senior Alexa Vander Leest concluded her career with her fastest time in the 1,500-meter run. Vander Leest finished 17th in 5:18.31, but only three seconds separated her from 10th place in the race.

This is the final day of Venus in Aries in the current cycle, as tomorrow she sheds her Joan of Arc armor for flowing silk gowns. Venus will luxuriate in Taurus, the sign that she rules, and though the past weeks have been uncomfortable for the love goddess, important work has been accomplished. Hopefully we learned what’s worth fighting for.

No one gets a perfect code, but focusing on the positives puts you at an advantage.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 27). You know that you are not your physical self, and yet what you do for your body this year will make you feel more alive and confident.
