Aurora Heights sixth graders helped support classmate honor his mother with tree purchase By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer Sixth grader Ian Peterson wore his brown Keith Urban T-shirt, his mom’s favorite artist, to Thursday morning’s tree planting ceremony at Aurora Heights Elementary School. It was only appropriate that he wore the shirt since the ceremony was to honor his mom, Julie, who passed away in March. Last summer, Julie was told by doctors that she had three weeks to live after being diagnosed with cancer. Facing impossible odds, the mother of two — Ian has an older sister, Valerie — survived for nearly a year before succumbing to the cancer in March. Nicky Lampe, Ian’s teacher, came up with the idea of “Pennies for Peterson,” as a way Ian’s fellow students could show him support during his time of need. Aurora Heights sixth graders collected pennies and used those funds to have a tree purchased and planted at

the school. “I was really shocked because I had never had like that much attention before,” Ian said. “I was shocked and excited at the same time and thought that it was really nice that they would do that for us. It just really helps to know that they care.” Although he’s not even a teenager yet, Ian seems to be handling the situation in a very mature manner. He’s still smiling and genuinely seemed at peace as he ran around and exchanged jokes with his classmates on the playground. The tree Ian chose was a swampy white oak tree that he had picked out with Lampe. He wanted to plant it behind a bench near the track at Aurora Heights, as Julie used to walk that track for recreation. His grandmother, and Julie’s mother, Jean Burchell was in attendance at the ceremony. She had high praise for Lampe for all she had done and revealed the teacher had visited Ian

and Julie at the hospital and had even been present the night Julie passed. When the crew from Garden Gate Landscaping arrived, they let Ian help dig the hole. Later on, he got to shovel dirt to fill in the hole, and they posed him in their Bobcat utility vehicle — even allowing him to work the controls. To close out the ceremony, Lampe read a poem titled “Love Lives On,” which encourages people to remember the good times with lost loved ones, and Ian’s classmates continued to show him support in his time of need. After the tree was planted, Ian said he hoped it would last forever and explained why. “Then I could always have it there,” Ian said looking in the direction of his mom’s tree and her former favorite track.

Skiff Medical Center President and CEO Steve Long has announced he has accepted the position of president and CEO of Hancock Regional Hospital in Greenfield, Ind., located about 20 miles east of Indianapolis. Long will begin his leadership position at Hancock Regional Hospital on July 30. “This is a wonderful career o p p o r t u n i t y, ” said Long, who has been at Skiff since January 2010.  “Mr. Keen, the Hancock Board of Trustees, and all the Long members of the Hancock team have created an exceptional organization that is particularly well-suited to weather the dramatic changes in health care that are currently underway.” Long will be replacing Bobby Keen, the retiring CEO of Hancock Regional Hospital. The hospital is a county-owned 89-bed acute care hospital that has been providing care for residents of Hancock County since 1951. With 3,100 inpatient admissions and 160,000 outpatient visits, the nearly 700 employees and 100plus active members of the medical staff help the hospital earn more than $100 million in net revenues annually. While providing traditional inpatient and outpatient services, including emergency, medical and surgical care, the hospital also operates centers of excellence in cardiology, oncology, stroke, orthopedics, women’s health and wound care. In addition to hospital-based services, Hancock Regional Hospital operates a professional building and ambulatory surgical center on the main campus, as well as a wellness center off-campus in Greenfield, and several outpatient clinics throughout the county, including a large practice in the Indianapolis suburb of McCordsville. The hospital has plans to break ground on a new cancer center in 2014. The hospital is also a co-owner, with St. Vincent’s Health in Indianapolis, of Hancock Physician Network, a multi-specialty group practice consisting of more than 30 physicians. Hancock Regional Hospital has been named one of the best places to work in Indiana for five years in a row by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and for four years in a row by Modern SKIFF See Page 5A

The classic comedy “The Odd Couple” — opening tonight at the Newton Community Theatre — begins with a group of guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison (portrayed by Chris Johnson). And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder his wife left him.  Late to arrive is Felix Unger (Kelly Peavey) who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the cleanfreak and the slob ulti-

mately decide to room together with hilarious results. Oscar and Felix are best friends. What are friends for but to help each other? It doesn’t always work that way. Chris and Kelly have that relationship down well. The card-playing team of Speed (Mike McKenna), Murray (Andy Malsom), Roy ( John Dougan) and Vinnie (Mark Monroe) have quick witty comebacks for each other. Their timing is spot on. We meet the Pigeon sisters from upstairs, Gwendolyn (Lynette Newbauer Baker) and Cecily (Cara McCulley). They are flirtatious and looking for fun, and they find themselves showing compassion to

Club Notes Kellogg Lions Club The Kellogg Lions Club ended its 20132014 program year with a potluck dinner on Monday, May 12, at the Kellogg United Methodist Church with 17 Lions and four guests in attendance. A highlight of the evening was the presentation of “Lions of the Year” and the “Citizens of the Year” recognitions. Receiving “Lions of the Year” honors were Barry and Mary Flint. Residing in Ottumwa, Barry and Mary have been “long distance” members of the Kellogg Club. Barry is retired from the Kellogg Bank, and Mary is a retired nurse. In their retirement, they have found active volunteer involvement, including helping with Kellogg Lions projects. They have been known, several times, to leave home before 4 a.m. in order to arrive in Kellogg before 6 a.m. to help with the monthly pancake breakfasts. Their willingness to help is always accompanied by a pleasant smile and an infectious laugh. The Kellogg United Methodist Women were recognized as “Citizens of the Year” for their commitment to service. They have prepared monthly suppers for Lions for a number of years, in addition to their work to promote and serve their church and community. Present to receive the award on behalf of the women of the church were Doris

Katiedid Vs.

Baby Cat Crawl

They say, “Do what you love, and love what you do.” I have always been a believer of that concept. It’s been my marching order, a goal to work toward. It’s a quality I hope to instill in my son. As a new parent, I’ve often found myself thinking about my son’s future employment, his every newly discovered skill serving as a jumping-off point for my fantasy. When he first rolled over, I thought he By Katiedid might become a gymLangrock nast. When he became Creators Syndicate infatuated with eating twigs, I knew he’d become a conservationist. And when he erased all the apps from my phone, it became unmistakably evident that this little savant was the next Steve Jobs. As his mother, I have made the unwavering commitment to support and encourage any activity he falls in love with and lead him toward a career of doing what he loves with steadfast dedication. A commitment I may regret. My baby boy wants to be a stripper. Early Saturday morning, my son and I were watching reruns of a show I used to watch during my childhood. The commercials aired were for weight-loss pills and diet shakes, clearly aimed at moms like me, nostalgic for our own childhoods, sitting on the couch, crying into cereal bowls precariously balancing on the baby-weight bulge we have yet to lose. Or so hope the folks behind these commercials. Attempting to play into our postpartum psyche, a commercial popped up for pole dancing lessons, an opportunity to get our sexy back. And it was at this point that my 21-month-old son scooted his bottom off the couch, walked over to the TV and stared at the gyrating woman in her underwear. The stripper slid off her pole and began scantily cat crawling across the floor, and that is how my son came to find his newest obsession: the striptease. Following the stripper’s every move, my son got down on all fours, arched his back and flipped his hair back and forth. I was both horrified and disappointed that I didn’t have my camera. The 30-second commercial ended, but my son was hooked. He would toss his hair and laugh. Shake his booty and giggle. Sure, this move wasn’t entirely new. My kid would occasionally head-bang on all fours when a particularly rockin’ song came on, but now that he had seen stripping as a viable career option, his dance moves seemed tainted. Now every time he took off his clothes and ran around the house, it was as if he were screaming, “Hey, Ma, I found my calling! And I found $1 bills in my diaper!” My son the stripper. Where had I gone wrong? He was going to be a conservationist, not a cast member in “Thunder From Down Under”! Did I dress him in too many layers during the winter months, giving a subconscious need to rip them all off? In my excitement to give him his toy fire station, had I neglected to assess the irrevocable damage caused by the shiny pole in the center? I wondered whether I would have to stick to my previous commitment of supporting my son in any life path he chooses. In order to be a good mother, would I have to bedazzle G-strings and hem pants that can be ripped off? The concept behind doing what you love and loving what you do is rooted in the desire for happiness — the only thing we parents tout as our desire for our children. But is that real? I don’t only want happiness for my child; I want a million things. I want for him education and adventure and love and self-confidence and courage and humor and comfort in his own skin. And if showing off that skin is what makes him happy, I hope I can lead him in the direction of streaking on the football field during the homecoming game instead of streaking for a living and guide him toward following the career path of a different love. And, my boy, when you are college-bound and choose to relive your first childhood love by mooning the parents at your high-school graduation, I promise to applaud that bare bum, bragging that I made those cheeks. Now that’s a commitment I can keep.

Routine discrimination needs to stop To the editor: In the 1954 Brown vs Board of Education decision, the Supreme Court (unanimously) said: “Today, education is perhaps the most important function of state and local governments. Compulsory school attendance laws and the great expenditures for education both demonstrate our recognition of the importance of education to our democratic society. It is required in the performance of our most basic public responsibilities, even service in the armed forces. It is the very foundation of good citizenship. Today it is a principal instrument in awakening the child to cultural values, in preparing him for later professional training, and in helping him to adjust normally to his environment. In these days, it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportu-

nity of an education. Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it, is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms.” U.S. public schools routinely ignore these words through their rationalization that some demographic groups of students have problems learning and are making the schools look bad. This is taught in teacher training programs, and creates lowered expectations for students falling into those targeted groups, resulting in achievement gaps that have no bearing on capacity to learn but are products of discrimination. Using this discrimination as an excuse, proper assessment of curriculum content and teacher training programs has failed all other students for the past 50 to 60 years. In 2001, Congress attempted to put a stop to the discrimination by disallowing the practice of eliminating all low test scores through the labeling of students, but the system refused to stop

its discrimination. In 2004, the Manhattan Institute issued its teachability report, demonstrating how achievement gaps disappeared when the discrimination stopped, but public schools continued. This year, an international report from the Organization of Community and Economic Development (writers of the PISA exams), issued a report, “A USA and International Perspective on 2012 PISA Results”, pointing out that the countries out-educating us are doing so with the very demographic groups of students U.S. public school educators discriminate against. This school year is over, so during the summer teachers, administrators, and school board members need to read these reports and decide if they can stop their routine discrimination of children (which amounts to child abuse). If they cannot, then they need to get out of education. Sue Atkinson, PhD Baxter

Academic Achievements NHS senior receives full tuition scholarship Newton Senior High School senior John Miller of Newton recently received an award and full tuition scholarship from the Des Moines Area Community College and the Product Development Partners for technical training. PDP Business Founder Don Fisher presented Miller’s scholarship at the NHS Award Ceremony. The scholarship covers tuition for technical training at DMACC and offers part-time work at PDP to “earn while you learn.” DMACC’s Tool and Die Making program prepares students in either the conventionally controlled or computer numerically controlled tooling industry. Between classroom work, Miller will be gaining valuable industry experience at PDP as a part-time employee assisting with design consultations and working with rapid injection molds to meet the needs of the business’ customers. Miller was selected for the scholarship based on academic merit and interest in the field. He is enrolled in the DMACC Tool & Die program this summer.

Skiff Continued from Page 1A Healthcare magazine. In addition, the hospital has been recognized with a National Excellence in Healthcare award for patient perception by a national patient satisfaction measurement company. Long said leaving Newton and Skiff will be difficult for him and his family. “We will treasure the relationships we have built in this community,” he said, “but we are confident that this move is a good one for our family and that we leave Skiff in excellent hands.”   During Long’s tenure at Skiff Medical Center, the hospital was admitted into a Medicare Demonstration Program, which provided significant additional operating revenue, created a strategic partnership with the Philips Corporation resulting in a stateof-the-art imaging center, and, most recently, partnered with Health Enterprises of Iowa to open a regional medical laboratory on the campus previously used as the Maytag Corporation headquarters in Newton. Long came to Skiff Medical Center from Aurora Medical Center in Two Rivers, Wis. He had previously served at hospitals in Iowa and Texas. The Skiff Medical Center Board of Trustees will make an announcement in the next few weeks regarding filling the CEO position at Skiff.

The current Board of Supervisors has managed Jasper County Government by conservative principles, and it has worked, and the records will show that.

During FY2013, Jasper County trimmed its operational expenses by 9% from FY 2012; the County also collected 4% less in tax revenue in 2013 than it had in the previous fiscal year. 212 First St. N.

FAMILY CIRCUS

Family wishes woman would give tanning beds a rest DEAR ABBY: I love my daughterin-law and I am afraid she is harming herself because of her addiction to tanning. Her boys are in high school and cannot remember their mother without a really dark tan. One son told his classmates in grade school that his mother was African-American when they were doing African-American studies. (She’s Caucasian.) My son says he cannot convince her to “lighten up” a bit. I don’t know what to do. I am ... SO CONCERNED FOR HER IN ILLINOIS DEAR SO CONCERNED: You are right to be concerned for your daughter-in-law. For years, dermatologists have cautioned the public about the dangers of exposure to the sun. With the invention of tanning beds, the rates of melanoma among young people have soared. For anyone who isn’t aware, melanoma is an aggressive type of skin cancer that can be fatal. Tanning can be addictive, and you should urge your daughter-in-law to discuss this with a dermatologist. Because tanning also causes premature aging of the skin, she should explore “sunless tanning,” which is much safer. DEAR ABBY: I’m 18. My boyfriend, “Matt,” and I have been together for a year and a half, and I’m leaving for college this fall. Matt will be attending community college nearby. I have been told that the next four years are the best years of life, and I want to live them to the fullest. In order to do that, I want to be single so I can have a good time and be a little reckless without worrying about him. I love Matt and would one day like to marry him, but since he’s only my third boyfriend, I want to find out what other fish are in the sea before I settle down. What should I do? — WANTS THE BEST OF BOTH

WORLDS DEAR WANTS THE BEST: The kindest thing to do would be to tell Matt that while you care deeply for him, because you are going to be separated for the next four years, you feel both of you should be free to date others. That’s a lot more tactful than saying you’ll still be there if there aren’t any bigger fish in the sea, and I’m sure it will get the idea across. Whether or not the next four years will be the best years of your life — one would hope you have more than four — they will be an important growth period for both you and Matt, and each of you should explore them to the fullest without being encumbered. DEAR ABBY: We play softball at school a lot, and I can’t play well. I don’t know what to do, and the others laugh at me. What should I do? — ANXIOUS FOR ADVICE DEAR ANXIOUS: I know of no athlete, amateur or professional, who can become proficient at a sport without lots of practice. Talk to your coach about what you need to do to improve, and see if another adult would be willing to play catch and pitch to you. If you keep trying, you will improve. If not, there may be another sport you will like better.

DKG sponsors READING ROCKS!

Iowans may fish free June 6-8 Special to the Daily News Iowa residents may fish without a license on June 6, 7 and 8 as part of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources free fishing weekend.  Free fishing weekend allows Iowans an opportunity to try fishing without purchasing a license. All other regulations remain in place.  “We are experiencing some excellent fishing across the state right now at Green Valley Lake, Little River Lake, Hawthorne Lake and our trout streams and our fisheries at Rice Lake, Silver Lake and Lake Miami are being improved to provide better fishing in the future,” said Joe Larscheid, chief of the Iowa DNR’s Fisheries Bureau.  “We hope that someone who gives fishing a try during free fishing weekend will enjoy the experience and want to go fishing more often and become a license holder,” Larscheid said.   Anyone catching their first fish is encouraged to take a photo of it and send it in to receive the DNR’s first fish award. The DNR will commemorate the event with a certificate suitable for framing and the submitted photo.  Information on the first fish program is available in the Iowa Fishing Regulations and online at www.iowadnr.gov/Fishing/ MasterAnglerFirstFish.aspx,

DES MOINES — LifeServe Blood Center has announced 274 students from 56 counties in the tri-state region of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota have qualified to be recognized as Gallon Grads this year. The Gallon Grad program encourages high school students, ages 16 and older, to donate one gallon of blood before graduating from high school. The following local high school students are being recognized as Gallon Grads: • Newton Senior High School — Amy C. Roberts, Chas E. Antle, Evan M. Shimon, Jacob B. Smith, Jacob J. Huizenga, Jared R. Burton. • Colfax Mingo High School — Michaela L. Van Dusseldorp. • Prairie City-Monroe High School — Dani S. Tool and Lucas J. Rains. • Krystal D. Pendroy. In order to become a Gallon Grad, students had to make eight whole blood or four double red cell blood donations before graduation. Achieving the milestone required a large commitment from the students, who took time from their busy schedules to make blood donations at their local high school blood drives and at blood drives that took place within the community.  For more information about blood donation or to donate, call (800) 287-4903 or visit www.lifeservebloodcenter.org.

NHS students teach Aurora Heights students about science By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer Aurora Height Elementary School students got a taste of what’s to come when they become students at Newton Senior High School. On Wednesday, NHS students Quinten King, Jarom Williams, Trevor Miller, David Perrin, Jeff Stanton and Drake Rhone, along with NHS science teacher Jodi Morgan-Peters, gave a brief presentation at Aurora Heights on robotics, coding, flight and the aerospace engineering class at the high school. Quinten gave a demonstration of a remote controlled robot he built, Drake showcased how he used coding to make a windmill and explained to the younger students how coding is used to make everything from video games to remote control cars. “What this is that you are seeing on the screen. It’s showing that I’m

Ty Rushing/Daily News Newton Senior High School student Drake Rhone was one of several NHS students who gave a presentation on the aerospace engineering program at the high school to Aurora Heights Elementary School students on Wednesday. Drake showcased a windmill he built and how he operates it by coding.

writing code. So, ‘start motor’ is showing me what to start for the fan motor,” Drake said as he demode the windmill. In addition to showcasing their work, the students, along with Morgan-Peters, interacted with the elementary students by asking them questions and challenging their knowledge on

various scientific practices. As he was demonstrating his model gliders, Jarom helped the kids learn the physical aspects of flight, gravity’s influence on flight and how size and weight distribution control speed and stability for flying objects. Once all of the NHS

students finished their indoor presentations, they took the elementary students outside to give them a demo on launching rockets. AH teacher Jack Crandle said his class was going to take what they learned at the assembly to conduct their own rocket project later this week.

Kids Say... The Newton Daily News recently visited sixth-graders in Mrs. Vanderlaan’s classroom at Aurora Heights Elementary and asked the following question:

What have you learned about World War I and World War II? “Mostly how people used gases, like mustard gas. It would affect the face and body.”

Constance Grigsby

“I’m doing a paper on gases. They had gas masks for horses, babies and dogs and other animals.”

Lillian Busch

- American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Jasper County

“A lot of gases were invented during World War I.”

Jillian Waits

Seth Adams

Five of the six golfers played on the Ames Country Club golf course a year ago during the state tournament, when the team finished sixth. “They’re excited,” Enyart said. “They know the golf course and they know what to expect at the state tournament.” The Cardinals traveled to Ames Wednesday for a practice round. Enyart said being there helped refresh the girls’ memories of the course. “This has been a goal for everyone — get back to state. The golfers and the coaches. We won our regional, which adds to the confidence level of our girls,” he said. Seniors Carrie Cunningham, Madigan Hillyard and Madeline Wellik, junior Shelbey Cochran and sophomores Jessica Reynolds and Cydney Hillyard head to Ames on Monday. The state tournament is a 36hole, two-day event. Reynolds leads Newton in combined average over nine-hole and 18-hole tournaments with a 48. Cochran, who won the individual 4A regional championship on Tuesday at

Carroll, averages 48. Cunningham and Madigan Hillyard each have an average of 49. Wellik and Cydney Hillyard average 50 per nine holes. “Our girls’ best games are still ahead of them,” Enyart said. “One thing we’ve stressed is to go and play our game. It’s about doing what each one does best. We’re not going to go there and try to be somebody else. We need to play like we’ve played all season.” Five of eight teams from last year’s state tournament return. Along with Newton, Cedar Rapids Xavier, Charles City, Mount Pleasant and Western Dubuque are back. Washington, Adel-DeSoto-Minburn and Dubuque Wahlert are new contenders this year. Cedar Rapids Xavier has the best scoring average as a team, 183 for nine holes. Enyart said there is a cluster of teams including Newton that fall in the 190-195 scoring average range. “Depth has been big for us this season. We’ve had different girls step up in different meets to lead us or give us that score we needed to win,” Enyart said. “They looked comfortable on the Ames course this week and that’s a good sign.” Tee time for both days of the tournament is 9 a.m. Both the Class 4A and Class 3A state tournaments are being held at Ames Country Club.

NHS softball loses opener to Marshalltown By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor MARSHALLTOWN — A five-run fourth inning propelled Newton’s Cardinals to a 6-3 lead over host Marshalltown Thursday night. Unfortunately, the Bobcats scratched out an 8-7 win spoiling the NHS softball team’s season opener. “We out hit Marshalltown seven to five. We gave up five unearned runs tonight. You take those out and we win a ballgame,” said Ashley Ryan, Cardinal head coach. “We had some positives for the first game out, but we have to treat every out as a gift. We can’t make one error and turn it into two errors.” Senior Lizzie Stock turned in a strong pitching outing for the Cardinals. A year ago, Stock broke her hand in the first game of the season and was out the whole season. Stock Stock pitched six innings, allowed eight runs on five hits, two walks and one hit batter. She struck out two. Newton’s top of the batting order produced six hits and scored five times in the game. Ryan said the Cardinals

had great base running in the game. Marshalltown scored three runs in the first inning. Newton got on the scoreboard in the third inning. Leadoff hitter Sydney Jenkins connected for a one-out double and moved to third on a single by Kari Adams. Jenkins scored on a passed ball. Newton stranded two baserunners. Down 3-1, the Cardinals had a two-out rally in the fourth inning. Jaci Twaddle reached on a Bobcat error followed by an RBI double by Katie Chisholm. Jenkins and Adams drew backto-back walks and Stock drove home runs on a single. Another run scored when Madison Bagnall reached on an error. Marshalltown got two runs back in the bottom of the fourth, then tied the game at 6-all with a run in the fifth. Jenkins speed on the base paths paid off for the Cardinals in the sixth inning. She singled with one gone then stole second and third. Adams’ sacrifice drove in the go-ahead run. The Bobcats scored twice in their half of the sixth to gain an 8-7 lead. Marshalltown retired Newton in order in the seventh to claim the victory. Jenkins had two singles and a double for Newton. Stock tagged the ball for two base hits. Chisholm doubled and Adams singles. Newton (0-1) has its home opener tonight at 7 p.m., playing West Marshall at Berg Middle School.

Cardinals come up empty in nine-inning game against Chargers By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor CHARITON — Finding a way to produce runs is a priority for Newton’s baseball team. The Cardinals stranded six baserunners Thursday night, losing 1-0 in extra innings to host Chariton. Another priority for the Cardinals is cutting down on fielding errors. After playing scoreless baseball for seven innings, the Cardinals and Chargers went to extra innings to decide the non-conference contest. Newton catcher Evan Shimon wiped out an error by the Cardinals in the bottom of the eighth. Shimon picked off a Chariton runner on third base, throwing to Michael Barr for the tag. The Charger up at bat delivered a triple, which would have driven in the winning run. The Cardinals got out of the eighth, forging on to a ninth inning. With two gone, Derek Wrage singled to left field and ended up at second on an error. Grant Nook went in as a courtesy runner for Wrage. Chariton’s Kobey Riechman, who pitched a complete game for the Chargers, struck out Newton’s next batter to end the threat. A walk, a single, an error by the Cardinals and a fielder’s choice produced the winning run for the Chargers in the bottom of the ninth. Wrage, Jeff Stanton, Barr and Connor Gholson each had a single for the Cardinals.

Wrage pitched four no-hit, shutout innings, walking one and striking out two. Jordan Travis worked four innings, giving up two hits, walking two and striking out four. Barr took the pitching

loss, taking the mound in the ninth and giving up one run on one hit and one walk. The Cardinals (0-3) are on the road again tonight. They play West Marshall at State Center.

Tireless Russell leads C-M to shutout win By Ben Schuff Daily News Sports Writer

Ben Schuff/Daily News Colfax-Mingo freshman Amy Russell winds up to throw a pitch in the fourth inning against Grandview Park Baptist Thursday night. Russell threw a one-hitter and struck out nine in her third complete-game performance in as many nights.

COLFAX — Having sent Amy Russell to the circle each of the previous two nights, Colfax-Mingo softball coach Bryan Poulter wondered prior to Thursday’s game against Grandview Park Baptist if it was time to give his ace pitcher some well deserved rest. The right-hander pitched every inning of her team’s games on Tuesday and Wednesday, including an eight-inning affair against North Polk. Poulter’s concerns never seemed to come to fruition, though. Instead, Russell’s third straight complete game was her best yet. The freshman held Grandview Park Baptist hitless through five innings and guided Colfax-Mingo to a 2-0 victory at home. Tigerhawk junior Rylee Thompson helped break a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fifth with a double off the right field fence, scoring Alivia Haley from first base. That little bit of run support proved more than enough for Russell, who finished the game with a one-hitter to show for her efforts. “I don’t like to think that two [runs] is enough,” Poulter said, “but I felt really confident after we got those two.” Poulter thought Russell’s control was as good as it’s been in the season’s first three games. The results proved him right. Russell struckout out nine, a season high, and walked none, a season low. Russell explained after the game she felt confident heading to the rubber in the first inning following her warm-up session. “Usually when I’m warming up, by the first pitch I throw, I can tell if it’s a good game or a bad game,” she said. “Most of my pitches when I was warming

up, they were great.” Colfax-Mingo (2-1) had several opportunities to give its often-used pitcher some breathing room. The Tigerhawks left the bases loaded in the third inning and then stranded a runner on third base to end the fourth. Those scoreless outcomes quickly changed in the fifth when Haley led off with a walk. Thompson then came to the plate and hit a ball that appeared to have a chance of clearing the fence for a home run, but fell just short. After breaking her stride near third base, Haley darted home underneath a relay throw that sailed several feet over the catcher’s head for the game’s first run. “I was just trying to get a hit, just trying to do whatever I could there,” Thompson said. Russell, who was on-deck during Thompson’s atbat, admitted she felt “relieved” when Haley scored. Her teammates gave her more cushion with a twoout RBI single to make it 2-0. “It took some slack off me so I didn’t have all the pressure on me,” she said. Grandview Park Baptist’s lone hit of night came in the next half inning when Reiley Rodman led off with a single. Russell calmly retired the next three batters, and ended the game by striking out three of the final six Defenders she faced. Poulter stated he “didn’t know what to expect” from Russell in “her third game in a row of the first week.” He considered throwing one of his two eighth grade pitchers, but opted against that plan until they gain more confidence in junior varsity games. That left the 15th-year head coach with his only other option, who did just fine. “Her control was the best tonight that it’s been all week,” he said. “The spot that she wanted to throw it to, she threw it to and it went there.”

Newton’s Strayer wins big race and $1,200 prize at Quad City Speedway Special to Daily News EAST MOLINE, Ill. — Jake Strayer made the two-hour haul from Newton worth his while last Sunday night at the Quad City Speedway. In his first-ever trip to the Quad City Speedway, Strayer won the

$1,200 top prize in the 21st Annual Gary Reinhart Memorial. The race is sponsored by Leffler Construction, Gade Race Engines, The Truck Doctor, Fikes Truck Line of the Quad Cities, A. Fry Construction, C&W Trucking, and Chuck Hanna. A solid field of Topper Services

IMCA modifieds battled through three heat races and two consolation races to determine the 22-car starting field. Strayer started 10th and navigated his way through traffic like he raced at QCS every Sunday night. He held off a late challenge from 2013 IMCA Modified Track Champion

Agreement reached for Clippers sale LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has agreed to buy the Los Angeles Clippers for a record-breaking $2 billion. Now it’s up to others whether the deal goes through. Shelly Sterling said in a statement issued late Thursday that she’d signed a binding contract for a sale of the Clippers by The Sterling Family Trust to Ballmer in what would be a record deal if approved by the NBA. Ballmer “will be a terrific owner,” Sterling said, “We have worked for 33 years to build the Clippers into a premier NBA franchise. I am confident that Steve will take the team to new levels of success.” Sterling negotiated the sale after her husband, Donald Sterling, made racist remarks that were made public. The remarks included Sterling telling girlfriend V. Stiviano not to bring blacks to Clippers games, specifically mentioning Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. Shelly Sterling’s statement noted that she made the deal “under her authority as the sole trustee of The Sterling Family Trust, which owns the Clippers.” Donald Sterling’s attorneys contend that he is a co-owner and therefore must give his assent for the deal to go through. They also say he won’t be giving it. “Sterling is not selling the team,” said his attorney, Bobby Samini. “That’s his position. He’s not going to sell.” Ballmer beat out bids by Guggenheim Partners and a group including former NBA All-Star Grant Hill after presenting an “all-around superior bid,” according to an individual with knowledge of the negotiations. The individual, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said Ballmer made more than an hour-long personal visit to Shelly Sterling’s Malibu home Sunday and laid out his plan. “He knocked their socks off, they bonded, had a good connection,” the individual said. The amount was also the largest of the offers, and Ballmer was one potential buyer to deal with rather than numerous members of a group. Ballmer said in a statement that he is honored to have his name submitted to the NBA for approval and thanked the league for working collaboratively with him throughout the process. “I love basketball. And I intend to do everything in my power to ensure that the Clippers continue to win — and win big — in Los Angeles,” Ballmer said. “LA is one of the world’s great

cities — a city that embraces inclusiveness, in exactly the same way that the NBA and I embrace inclusiveness.” Though Donald Sterling’s attorneys now say he won’t agree to sell the team, a May 22 letter obtained by The Associated Press and written by another of Sterling’s attorneys that says that “Donald T. Sterling authorizes Rochelle Sterling to negotiate with the National Basketball Association regarding all issues in connection with a sale of the Los Angeles Clippers team.” It includes the line “read and approved” and Donald Sterling’s signature. Samini said Sterling has had a change of heart primarily because of “the conduct of the NBA.” He said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s decision to ban Sterling for life and fine him $2.5 million as well as to try to oust him as an owner was him acting as “judge, jury and executioner.” “They’re telling me he should stand back and let them take his team because his opinion on that particular day was not good, was not popular?” Samini said. “It doesn’t make sense. He’s going to fight.” It’s unclear how the agreement will affect a special hearing of NBA owners planned for Tuesday in New York to consider the charge against Donald Sterling for damaging the league with his comments. A three-quarters vote of the 30 owners to support the charge would have resulted in the termination of both Sterlings’ ownership of the franchise. The deal is expected to be presented to the league before Tuesday, according to the individual. Silver has said his preference would be for the franchise to be sold rather than seized — and that means sold in its entirety, with neither Sterling retaining a stake. Though according to the deal’s terms, Ballmer will own 100 percent of the team, and Shelly Sterling may continue to be involved under conditions worked out privately with Ballmer, the individual said. This is not Ballmer’s first foray into potential NBA ownership. Ballmer and investor Chris Hansen headed a group that agreed to a deal to buy the Kings from the Maloof family in January 2013 with the intention of moving the team to Seattle, where the SuperSonics played until 2008. But Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson lobbied the NBA for time to put together a bid to keep the team in California, and though the Ballmer-Hansen group later increased its offer, owners voted to deny the bid for relocation.

Greg Durbin, who started 18th. Jim Sandusky, who came of out retirement for this race, finished third followed by Leland Bushong and Jason Buss. Heat race winners were Ray Cox Jr., Strayer, and Matt Werner. Consolation winners were Justin Veloz and Chris Lawrence.

A 28E agreement between the city and the PCM school district has been approved by both entities, and now the design process will move forward on a joint wastewater management project between the entities. The hope is that the project, a new filtration and drainage system being put in alongside the athletic complex in Prairie City, will help drain

the water out of the area more efficiently than in the past while also filtering the water through natural vegetation.

Despite harsh storms and adverse weather conditions, more than 300 voters turned out during a Tuesday election in the Prairie City-Monroe School District to vote on the adoption of a new revenue purpose statement. The statement was passed by wide margin, with 249 voting in favor of its adoption while 56 voted against. Check next week’s Prairie City News for additional information on the election, and what its results will mean for the district.

Astrograph Friday, May 30, 2014

Venus changed signs on Wednesday under the new moon. Yesterday, Mercury countered with a move into Cancer. This morning, the moon enters Cancer, as well, forming an alliance with the minister of communication. These changes increase the need for nurturing, reassuring words. The language of love is encouragement and optimism. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 30). This year will grab your attention with a fantastic start, and you’ll know an adventure is underway. Your friends will bring color and excitement to your world in June. There will be a carrot dangling before you in July. Get down to business and make deals — do not let things stay in an undefined arrangement. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 33, 9, 13, 20 and 18. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The opportunities that arise may not seem so different from one another, but one thing that is noticeably different is the level of excitement

you feel for each of them. Act on these feelings, and they’ll guide you well. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are skilled in the art of making the right people look good. For instance, when the boss looks good, it’s a plus for the entire team. Think and plan to this end. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll bounce between being the creative mind on a project and the technical expert. You’ll be both the social strategist and the research team. How many roles can you possibly fill? All of them! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Nature is an integral and necessary part of feeling whole. The time you spend with other species, in the elements, feeling the weather, looking up at the sky instead of the ceiling — it all restores you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The day has an episodic feel, and you will go from scene to scene, chasing after something. Honor your need to process what you are learning. Seize opportunities to stop

along the way to discuss what just happened. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just as moments of sunlight make you feel bright and alive but hours of sunlight deplete you, everything powerful needs to be taken in moderation today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). An environment that is less than pleasing is dragging you down more than you realize. It’s more than you can finish in a day. Make a plan to get it done over the next three weeks. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Even though you are very professional in your dealings, you also give the human touch. Each person has unique needs. You can’t address them all, but you can shed a little warmth on the matter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re not trying to make a memory, but you’ll make one anyway. Knowing that the person you’re spending time with might remember your

interaction for decades to come, how do you want to design it? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Every problem is a growth opportunity, though some problems are hard to feel that optimistic about. That’s why you should focus on one thing you can fix at a time; it’s a strategy that will have miraculous results. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Most of those you’ll be interacting with will have an attention span of about seven minutes, give or take a few. Your effort to keep it brief but vivid will be well received. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may find that you are hyper-aware of a certain someone and tuned in to this person’s every move. This level of attention could come off as flattering or scary. You’d better play it cool. COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM
