City officials working to attract retailers to Newton

While people nationwide were watching the ESPN broadcast and learning about the city during the Get To Know Newton 250 race on May 18, a few local officials spent the weekend promoting the city in a different way. Newton Development Specialist Craig Armstrong, Newton Development Corporation Executive Director Frank Liebl and Newton Director of Finance and Development Bryan Friedman were networking with national brand retailers while attending “RECon the Global Retail Real Estate Convention” in Las Vegas.
Newton WaterWorks to increase water rates
With the national platform that ESPN provided, Armstrong said they used the exposure to help spark conversations with some of the retailers and kept track of how many times they saw the logo on television and how many times the race’s name was mentioned. “It was kind of an advantage for us, because although not everyone is a race fan, many people were aware of Iowa Speedway and the NASCAR Nationwide Series,” Armstrong said. “We pointed out on many occasions that the City of Newton was the title sponsor of the Get To Know Newton 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series Race, which was a conversation starter in four or five different conversations.”
The ultimate goal for the group was to drum up retail interest in Newton, and Armstrong said having the race named after the city helped establish credibility with some of the people they met with. “Did we come away with any definite hits with retailers signing up to come to Newton? No,” Armstrong said. “It wasn’t the objective; we knew for sure that we weren’t going to have a retailer sign up at the convention. Would we have turned them away, of course not, but there was no expectation of leaving the convention with a retailer in hand. RETAIL See Page 5A
Year ends with outdoor fun

During its May meeting, the Newton WaterWorks Board of Trustees voted to increase the retail water rate for customers. The rate adjustment went into effect on Sunday and will be reflected on the first billing cycle in July 2014. There were several factors that caused the board to vote on an increase, such as reduced water sale revenues and an increase in operating expenses that are attributed to energy, fuel, treatment chemicals, postage and benefits costs. WaterWorks recently had to borrow funds to facilitate construction on new water wells. Currently, nine of the wells that are in use were built prior to 1960. The projected revenue requirements, based on figures fiscal year 2103-2014 operating budget, indicate WaterWorks operating expenses will exceed its income by at least $150,000.

The Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has made the decision to hire an interim executive director in light of the departure of former executive director Darrell Sarmento. This decision was made after the board received a large response of qualified applicants for the position. “The board decided that they really wanted to take their time because it’s very important to choose the right person,” Sarmento said. “They have decided to hire Craig Light to be our interim Chamber executive director for however long it takes for them to go through the resumes and the interview process.

Tri-County Necessity and Pet Pantry of Melcher-Dallas is looking for a home in Newton. The pantry is run by the family of Lisa Storey Ransom of MelcherDallas, who made a presentation at the Monday Newton City Council meeting. “I’m here today to let the city council know that we’re looking at bringing a necessity pantry and a pet pantry to Newton,” Ransom said. “It’s a program that takes over where food stamps leave off as it provides necessity items that you can’t get on food

The company is funded purely on donations and grants.” “The pet pantry gets most of its product donations from sponsor Science Diet, which donates the pet food,” Ransom continued. “This concept makes it safer for the dogs to be at home with their companion than it is having to take them to the shelter.” There’s no eligibility requirements as it comes to the necessity pantry. Everyone is qualified for it. COUNCIL See Page 5A

On The Z-Train
How to tell a story Many times in life we’re asked to tell a story, which leaves us with many options, such as sugarcoating, letting people see our strengths and weaknesses, admitting we have fallen in love and seen it go up in oblivion. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes the biggest disasters have had stories that turned out pretty cool. I was given the idea of writing something in coordination with Newton Senior High School Alumni Week, and since the idea was given to me, inspiration has ran out the door. It wasn’t until the yearbooks came into the office and turned to the staff page of my senior yearbook to find a picture of me working to make the final deadline that helped give me the inspiration to do an alumni week column. The staff was truly stacked with experienced seniors and an unremarkable underclassman. The editorin-chief Shea Conner is currently working at the St. Joeseph News-Press, and managing editor CJ Strike does writing for COIN-OP TV on a part-time basis. NewBy Zach Johnson ton alumni Greg Woods Staff Writer was the lone freshman on that staff and is still doing work for Energy 106.7 on Iowa Speedway race weekends. I am going to slow down before I get off on too much of a tangent because, don’t get me wrong, I could write a book on the good things about that staff. My greatest strength in writing was having the chance to tell someone’s story. I’d have the opportunity to sit down with athletes for 45 minutes to an hour and then go back to the computer with one question on my mind: “What’s the most intriguing aspect of this person?” The amazing thing is that those series were truly the best things I have ever written. I looked back on the people that I had a chance to write about and the ones I learned about because of their willingness to sit down and have a conversation. I know, come next weekend, many more stories will be told, and sometimes even though I am in my hometown, I still wonder what will be on the other side of the barn door at Sugar Grove Winery. Will it be that glorious reunion we’re hoping for, or will it be just another cliché night in Newton? It still leaves the question — did you turn the handle to see what’s on the other side? It goes without saying that, for many people, it’s a step back into the person we were years ago, but for most it will be a step forward, as many people will now have a different story to tell. I find myself laughing at my desk thinking that once again, 10 years down the road, I am able to introduce the current readers of the Daily News to the Newton Senior High School Class of 2004. The greatest thing about having the chance to tell the story of the people that make up my high school class is that it’s never ending. As long as someone is willing to tell their story, it remains internal for the individuals simply willing to listen. In the end, don’t forget you have an amazing story to tell to the world. I urge the community of Newton to celebrate, as many people who represent the past of Newton Senior High School will be coming home. Take time to celebrate with them as our past has made Newton what it is today, and what Newton is today will make for what the future of Newton will be.

A recall letter from General Motors
I received a recall letter for my wife Christine’s vehicle, a 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt. The General Motors letter is printed below with slightly dramatic modifications: You have received this letter because we are conducting a mass recall on your vehicle and several vehicles like it that we have manufactured. Some By Will E. Sanders Creators Syndicate of these defective vehicles have killed people. How many people? That’s a tricky question. Thirteen that we will actually admit to. However, an independent consumer watchdog group claims we are responsible for as many as 303 motorist deaths. That might sound like a large number, but it isn’t. It’s barely enough for the federal government to force us to recall our faulty vehicles. These recalls replace ignition switches, ignition cylinders, keys and — you know what? It might actually be easier to list the things this recall isn’t replacing. Long story short, we are conducting this massive recall of 1.6 million vehicles — some tax-funded thanks to the auto bailout — because they kill people. Not a lot of people, just an incredibly small number of people. We would love to hear from
that small percentage of people, but unfortunately at least 13 to possibly 303 of them are dead. But hey, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet, right? We conducted 80 tests on these flawed automobiles after people started dying. At first we didn’t really seem to care. Recalls are expensive, though not as expensive as the billions and billions of dollars handed to us by the federal government for the automobile bailout. We tried our best to act like the vehicles weren’t defective, but more people kept dying. Well isn’t that a kick in the teeth? These recall tests we conducted involved driving our shoddy vehicles at high speeds on rough roads, across railroad crossings, river rocks, potholes, cobblestones and last but not least, the American middle class, figuratively speaking of course. Luckily during these tests, none of our stunt drivers died. The conclusion of these rigorous tests, mixed with bureaucratic pressures from Washington and crybaby relatives of dead family members, forced us to concede that our “defective death machines” are extremely, well how do I put this? We are terrible at admitting fault and providing apologetic sentiments. We are sorry our vehicles are extremely — hey, quick, look over there! This next part is tough. We acknowledge that our vehicles have faulty ignition switches that can disable our automobiles’ safety systems. Some of our vehicles just shut off while a motorist is driving; leav-
ing said motorists blissfully unaware they are about to either die or endure a near-death experience. Not to beat a dead horse (or a dead motorist), but yeah, some of our airbags don’t deploy correctly, or deploy at all. Let’s not make this a big deal. Oh, I should also mention that it’s also possible to remove the ignition key while the engine is running, making it probable for a vehicle to rollaway and careen into anything in its path, from itty-bitty dogs to bicycling children. In order to get your vehicle fixed as soon as possible, give your local GM dealership a call. Once connected, we will make it painfully difficult for you to speak to a live human being. Even when you do, one of our customer service representatives will politely ask for your patience because it will take months before we have enough parts to fix every car. So expect a long wait. In the meantime, just keep driving your automobile. There is a very good chance that you won’t die due to our defective murder-mobiles. We know these recalls may have worried and inconvenienced you. On behalf of everyone at GM, we are working to retain your trust after killing so many people. We are confident that, in the future, we can learn from this and become a better company. Sincerely, Alan Batey, president of General Motors, North America division To contact Will E. Sanders email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Privacy 2014: Is there a ‘right to be forgotten?’ By Thomas L. Knapp Everyone seems to like privacy — so much so that we often expand the term into the social concept of “privacy rights,” indicating that privacy isn’t just a good thing but something to which we are all entitled. This leaves unanswered an important question: “To what degree and in what respects?” Last month the European Court of Justice offered up an interesting answer to that question, positing a “right to be forgotten.” The court, pursuant to a lawsuit filed by Mario Gonzales of Spain, ordered Google to remove from its search results a 1998 newspaper article concerning the public auction of Gonzales’s repossessed home. Gonzales did not claim the article was untrue or inaccurate. Instead, he asserted that information pertaining to him (in particular, information which might disadvantage him, justifiably or not, if made easily available to others) should be placed under his exclusive control with respect to Internet search results. Thus was born the “right to be forgotten” — or forgotten by Google, at any rate. Google is cooperating: They’ve set up an online claim/application process for those who want specific pieces of information removed from their public search indices. The court’s criterion for evaluating these claims is that the information is question is “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant,” although that raises the further conundrum of who decides questions of adequacy and relevance. This case and its outcome touch on several issues with which civil and political libertarians, not to mention anarchists like myself, have wrestled for some time. While it seems incontestable that “privacy” is a valued thing, it’s not obvious just how market pro-
cesses might produce similar outcomes with respect to claims like Gonzales’s versus the way a powerful state with long-armed courts enforces such claims. In fact, for those who believe “privacy rights” extend as far as the court’s ruling seems to claim (or even farther), the ruling might itself constitute an argument against anti-statism or even “limited government” (a court in Luxembourg enforcing the demands of a plaintiff from Spain against a company in the United States with respect to the informational content of a global network doesn’t seem very “limited,” does it?). To me, the ruling is evidence of the opposite proposition. The fact that markets would probably not produce the same results as governments have produced means that governments are going too far and that “privacy rights,” if they exist at all, do not justly extend so far as this ruling implies. In this specific case, the claim seems to be less one of privacy and more one of “intellectual property.” Gonzales doesn’t claim that Google peeked through his window and saw him writing down notice of that 1998 auction. He acknowledges that it was, at the time, a publicly reported event. He’s just claiming that now, 16 years later, he “owns” knowledge of that event and is entitled to control it, while Google doesn’t and isn’t. We are at the point where efforts to protect privacy necessarily navigate between the perceived Scylla of “information wants to be free” and the Charybdis of state-created “intellectual property” monopolies. In my opinion, the idea of information freedom as Scylla is largely fantasy. The power of the state to compel “forgetfulness” is far more dangerous than any unintended or unwanted disclosure of truth could possibly be.

Retail Continued from Page 1A “The objective was to see as many of the retailers as we possibly could to present our case in a compelling and logical manner. (Afterwards), we would set up future conversations to be had and those are already taking place. The followup to the convention is as important or more so than the actual convention itself. In everything we hoped to accomplish, and to say I was more than pleased would be an understatement.” Taking this trip was another step in the city’s efforts to lure businesses. In September, the city council authorized $140,000 to have a comprehensive retail assessment report conducted by the Buxton Company based out of Forth-Worth, Texas. Buxton has worked with cities all over the U.S. and in Iowa the city of Indianola is listed as a client. “They do an incredibly detailed analysis of demographics and psychographics of the community and also the demographics and psychographics of retailers that match our demographics and psychographics,” Armstrong said about Buxton. “I couldn’t believe the incredible detail that is in
this analysis.” Armstrong said figures from the report showcased Newton had more potential matches than they had previously estimated. He said Newton had 100 matches and that the city chose about 20 of those matches to make contact with. Another concept of the study is finding the primary development areas for Newton, and the 164 and 168 exits for Interstate 80 were shown to be Newton’s primary development area. Armstrong said he knows many people consider the area by Iowa Speedway to be the “Golden Cow” for retail development, but he believes there’s room for development all over Newton. “I think there’s good property to develop right off of exit 164, downtown and particularly on the eastern edge of town,” Armstrong said. “In the core of downtown, there are many build-able lots especially on 12th street going east from the old Jiffy Lube and surrounding lots. “This isn’t just confined to the area just off the exits and if we look at more locations, some of it may happen a lot sooner. We may have potential retailers that could go into existing buildings in Newton
Council Continued from Page 1A “The pantry is based on a point system, where if you volunteer in your city or go to the doctor you get points per person in each family,” Ransom said. “If you’re handicapped or disabled, a veteran or elderly, you get points every month. The points go toward purchasing the items that you need. No money is ever exchanged between the client and the pantry itself.” Many of the items are worth 10 points each, which measure to be one point per penny of the item cost. “We have a deal with Dollar Tree, who will do free shipping for us to my residence in Melcher-Dallas,” Ransom said. “In doing the free shipping, it saves the pantry a lot of money. We can buy a lot of items through Dollar Tree that are used. I am also working on a project with Walmart to get a discount on some of the items that aren’t available at Dollar Tree.” The pantry started out in MelcherDallas as the prime location, but with the response from surrounding communities, Ransom expanded her operations. “We have expanded to Marion, Jasper, Lucas, Pomeroy counties,” Ransom said. “We have made all of these expansions
that can be remodeled or retrofitted for retailers.” As the city has been making pitches to retailers, Armstrong said they’ve had to educate a lot of them on the current things that are taking place in Newton and how the economy has stabilized after the initial down years postMaytag. He said they’ve been getting a lot of “Wow, I didn’t know that,” type of responses. “The retailers had more of a genuine interest in finding out more about Newton,” Armstrong said. The city’s attempts to lure more businesses to town isn’t just about giving Newtonians another place to shop, the city is hoping stop some of the massive retail leakage. “Retail leakage is the amount of money that our population isn’t spending in Newton,” Armstrong said. “Which means we’re not getting the sales tax dollars. Retailers aren’t able to sell the products or services that represents that area of retail leakage. What we want to do is to close that leakage gap by attracting new big box and moderate national brand retailers to town.” Staff writer Zach Johnson may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 425, or at zjohnson@newtondailynews. com.
since October of 2013, so we’re pretty proud of what we have done so far. We hope Newton would let us come in and try to help the residents in Newton with what they need, with either the necessity pantry or the pet pantry.” Ransom was asked by city councilor Lin Chape if she had a location in mind in Newton for the pantry. “I don’t have a spot in mind. I was hoping you guys would let me know if there’s an open location,” Ransom said. “We’re trying to get into bigger communities so that we can have a location to store items at, so we don’t have to carry it from Melcher to Newton because we don’t have the vehicles to transport the items. We look to do distributions twice a month in Newton.” Newton Mayor Mike Hansen advised Ransom to come to City Hall to find out the information that she would need to begin the pantries in Newton.

In addition, WaterWorks indicates that its cash reserves are “quite low” and it had to dip into its reserves in order to operate. WaterWorks said that it is imperative that these reserves be built back up to assure Newton’s future water supply. A small rate adjustment took place in 2012, but WaterWorks said it did not anticipate such a harsh winter which this previous winter season, which resulted in many water main breaks and loss of water.

DENNIS THE MENACE
THE BORN LOSER
Tuesday, June 3, 2014
Think twice before confronting drivers in handicapped spots DEAR ABBY: I suffered a serious accident at work and have endured numerous surgeries, with another on the horizon. Because the injuries are in the cervical and lumbar areas, they are not visible. Last week, I parked my car in a handicapped spot in the supermarket parking lot. Having a proper tag on my license plate, I didn’t think twice about it. As I entered the store, a woman who had parked nearby started shouting at me, saying I shouldn’t have parked where I did. I indicated she should read my plate, to which she then replied that I was “phony” for taking advantage of the system. I imagine she thought this because I was walking unaided that day. Abby, please inform your readers that not all injuries are visible and not to assume that someone is taking advantage because he or she doesn’t meet your expectations of how a disabled person “should” appear. — HURTING IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA DEAR HURTING: Gladly. This subject has appeared in my column before. You are correct that not all disabilities are visible. One that comes to mind would be a heart problem that prevents a patient from walking long distances. Another would be multiple sclerosis. Readers, if you are concerned that someone is gaming the system, rather than confront the person, write down the license number of the car with the handicap plate and inform the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are correct, the authorities will be interested in that information. And if you are not, you won’t have caused someone who already has problems additional distress. DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Gilbert” for more than 30 years. We have always managed to resolve our differences in a relatively short time, but this time I’m not too sure. Our son was married last weekend, and because we’re of Celtic heritage, I chose to wear a beautiful dress from Ireland.
Because it has short sleeves I brought a shawl to keep warm. When I asked my husband why he never said I looked nice, he replied he didn’t know whether I looked nice because he “couldn’t see me under that damned blanket!” I was stunned. I wore the shawl only when I was near the door because it was cold there. I danced with him and several others many times and didn’t have it on then. I must have told Gil at least 20 times how handsome he looked, and so did everyone else. The shawl may have been a little big on me because I am only 5 feet tall and weigh 95 pounds. But I didn’t think I looked hideous. I’m hurt over his remark, and we haven’t really spoken for several days. What can I do to get past this awful feeling that we’re going in opposite directions? — OFFENDED IN THE EAST DEAR OFFENDED: A good beginning would be to ask your husband why he made such a mean-spirited remark. He owes you an apology for his tactlessness. If he really hadn’t thought you were dressed appropriately for your son’s wedding, he should have mentioned it BEFORE you left the house so you could change if you wished. Slamming you afterward wasn’t helpful, and your hurt feelings are understandable. But unless you have other reasons for worrying that you might be headed “in opposite directions,” don’t let this be blown out of proportion.

Vernon takes action to prevent Emerald Ash Borer Special to the Daily News The Emerald Ash Borer beetle has made its way into Newton, and The Vernon Company is tackling the issue head-on with preemptive measures. About two months ago, it was confirmed that the Emerald Ash Borer, a green beetle native to Asia and Eastern Russia, had been identified in the northern section of Newton. Since its discovery in southeastern Michigan in 2002, the EAB has killed tens of millions of ash trees throughout the country. However, upon learning of the inevitable spread of the infestation, Vernon took immediate action. Working closely with the City of Newton, Vernon has contracted with Sumner Tree Service to utilize an innovative no-drill treatment system on the 29 trees located prominently on the Vernon campus, just 5 blocks north of the downtown area. “We thoroughly investigated a number of possible measures we

Craig is very familiar with the Newton area and has a lot of friends in the Newton community.” Sarmento has spent the week updating Light on the new procedures that have been implemented since Light left the Chamber in 2010. “It has been a great four years, and I just want to thank everyone for his or her support of the Chamber,” Sarmento said. “I am very excited to be helping to keep things moving forward. All Chamber events will move forward as planned. We have been meeting with Main Street Executive Director Andrew Bassman and making sure that all (city business) leaders know each other and are working well together.

could take to prevent having to remove the beautiful Ash trees on our property,” said Chris Vernon, MAS, the company’s president. “We quickly realized that the best prevention method would be via injection at the base of the tree, rather than ‘drenching’ the surrounding ground with chemicals. Other methods may cost less, but injection treatments handled by a professional have produced a 98
percent success rate and have proven to be safer for the environment.” Vernon will closely monitor the Ash trees on its campus, and has plans to report back to the city next year on the success rate of the injections. It is estimated that the injection treatment will cost the company approximately $100 per tree each year. Individuals with Ash trees on their property should consider treat-
ing their trees now, and should familiarize themselves with their options, particularly if they want to keep the trees alive and thriving. For more information about what the City of Newton is doing to address the EAB issue in the community, contact Nathan Unsworth, Newton Parks and Grounds Department, at (641) 792-1470 or email to email@example.com.
of our key city leaders, sat through a Chamber board meeting already, so the Chamber won’t miss a beat.” Light said his previous time in Newton made the decision to return an easy one. “It feels fabulous to return to Newton because in 2010, I had the opportunity to meet many new great citizens, Chamber members and business owners,” he said. “I was treated very kindly and I had a fabulous experience. When I was asked recently to come back again, I was very excited as it’s truly a testament to the experience Newton gave me in 2010. “Because if I hadn’t been treated well, the answer would have been ‘no,’’ but I was treated so well that I am honored, excited and looking forward to reacquainting myself with previous friends and businesses as well as being able to meet new friends and new businesses.” Although he has been away, Light has noticed some things that have happened in Newton since his departure. “I am very pleased with all of the changes
that have happened in Newton,” Light said. “I know all of the processes that were put into place before I left here in 2010. Being able to work with Darrell this week, he’s been able to show me all of his enhancements and all of the great work that he has done for the last four years. The Chamber itself was much better than it was four years ago because of Darrell’s efforts.” The Chamber Board of Directors will have another spot to fill due to Skiff Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Steve Long accepting the same position at Hancock Regional
Hospital in Greenfield, Ind. “Steve Long is our current past board chair,” Sarmento said. “Steve leaving is a big loss to our community, and I know I can say on be half of the board that we’re sorry to see Steve go. I know that they will work hard to fill Steve’s position for the balance of this year by possibly talking with some of our past board members, asking them if they could come in for a year and help to provide leadership in the transition as well. He has been a tremendous asset to the Chamber of Commerce and we will miss him.”

ISU host crop marking meeting in Newton
Ty Rushing/Daily News Dallas Cupples and Ethan Vander Pol are interning for the Jasper County Conservation Office this summer and are helping the office accomplish a few new things this year.
Conservation interns helping make changes By Ty Rushing Daily News Senior Staff Writer LYNNVILLE- Thanks to its internship study program, the Jasper County Conservation Office is going to be able to expand operation hours at the Wagaman Mill and give dove hunters a place to go within the county to hunt. From now until Aug. 8, Wagaman Mill, located in Lynnville, will have expanded summer operating hours. The mill will now be open on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Tuesdays from 1 to 4 p.m., Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The mill will remain open on Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. This idea was thought up by JCCO intern Dallas Cupples. Cupples, a first year intern, is a student at Iowa State University and is majoring in child, adult and family services. She said JCCO Director Keri Van Zante reached out to her for this internship opportunity and she spoke about why she accepted it. “They said that it would have to do with working in the community with people and gathering historical information and that just sparked an interest,” Cupples said. “I just love interacting with people in the community and just being in a position to always learn more.” While she’s only been interning there for a few weeks now, Cupples has been very eager to learn about the mills history and
significance. “I’ve learned like a lot of history about the mill, Teddy Roosevelt stayed here at the mill. That was interesting to learn,” she said. “The Wagaman Mill is one of 108 partner sites in the area designed to interpret and preserve different stories of American agriculture — ranging from dairy farms and museums to vineyards and tractor assembly plants.” Cupples said that she is hoping by expanding the operating hours, it gives more people an opportunity to check out what the mill has to offer and that during her time there, she wants to help make it more appealing to young people. “I’m getting ready to film a video with the current board members from the Lynnville Historical Society about the mill, and so, I wanted to be able to have that play as new people came in to view the mill,” Cupples said. “I also have a kayak and canoeing trip planned on July 1 from Kellogg to the mill.” She would also like to extend an invitation to Wagaman Mill 15th Anniversary Celebration taking place on Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Refreshments will be served and free-will donations will be accepted. Dove Hunting Ethan Vander Pol is entering his third year interning for JCCO and is helping the county develop its new dove hunting area. “My internship is called a ‘park technician’ so I go around to all the different parks in the county,

and do some of the maintenance, and this summer, we’re doing a couple of special things like the food plot for one,” Vander Pol said. The flood plot is going to be used to attract doves to the county’s Bell property south of Reasnor for dove hunting. “The dove plot is made up of sunflowers, millet and sorghum. We are going to plant about two to three acres, and hopefully we can get it in the next week,” Vander Pol said. “That’ll grow until about August, and then, I’ll go through with the mower and the disc and disc up some strips for the bare ground. “The doves like the bare ground in the fall and they also like seeds in the fall from the sunflowers and the millet and stuff. We’ll go through and disc it up, knock all that stuff down. It also gives the hunters a good place to hide with what’s left standing.” Vander Pol is entering its final year of college and attends ISU as well. He is majoring in animal ecology with a wildlife option and hopes his experience with the JCCO can lead to a career opportunity. “I would like to work for a county conservation (office) or the (Iowa Department of Natural Resources), I really like doing the maintenance and the hands on work,” Vander Pol said. “I’d really like to get a job doing that kind of stuff. It’s a great job for the summer, great experience and I really appreciate the job.”

Secretary comments on weekly crop report Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey commented Monday on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. “Farmers continued to make good progress between the scattered rain showers and thunderstorms,” Northey said. “Overall this has been a pretty good spring as farmers have gotten crops in the ground in a timely manner and periodic rainfall has helped replenish some needed soil moisture.” Topsoil moisture levels rated 2 percent very short, 14 percent short, 77 percent adequate and 7 percent surplus. With almost all of Iowa’s corn acreage planted, 89 percent of the crop has emerged, 19 percentage points ahead of last year but equal to the five year average. Soybean planting progress reached 94 percent complete, almost three weeks ahead of last year and over two weeks ahead of normal. Sixty-three percent of the soybean crop has emerged, 42 points above last year and 4 points above average.

Cardinals in fifth after day one of 4A state golf tournament By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor AMES — Newton’s girls are sitting fifth as a team after the first day of play at the 2014 Iowa Class 4A State Golf Tournament. Sophomore Jessica Reynolds is tied for eighth individually for the Cardinals. As expected, Cedar Rapids Xavier leads the 4A field with a 31shot lead over second-place Mount Pleasant. Xavier put up a 343 team
total after 18 holes at Ames Golf County Country Club course. Mount Pleasant finished at 374. The Cardinals are two shots out of fourth place, four out of third and seven back of second place. Newton combined for a 380 while Charles City is at 376 in third and AdelDeSoto-Minburn is fourth at 378. “There’s lots of golf to be played,” said Scott Enyart, Newton head coach. “We like where we are right now. We can control our attitude and our effort. The girls are excited
to get back out there Tuesday and they are determined to improve on their scores.” Tee time today was 9 a.m. There are 18 more holes to play in the state Reynolds tournament. Newton finished sixth as a team a year ago.
Reynolds had rounds of 46 and 44 for a 90 Monday. Enyart said she played a really competitive round. Senior Carrie Cunningham was “consistent” in her 94 on the first 18 holes, tied for 17th. Enyart said senior Madigan Hillyard had a slow start but turned it around to come in a 96, tied for 21st. Sophomore Cydney Hillyard is tied for 29th at 100 while senior Madeline Wellik shot a 103 and junior Shelbey Cochran carded a 105.

Area baseball/softball roundup Staff reports
Hawks thump Sigourney SULLY — Lynnville-Sully’s softball team strong-armed visiting Sigourney, 12-0, in four innings Monday night. The Hawk girls improved to 4-0 in South Iowa Cedar League play and 6-1 overall. Madison Rasmusson threw a onehit shutout for Lynnville-Sully. She also went 3-for-3 at the plate with two singles and a triple. The Hawks used a 13-hit attack to score three runs in the first inning, one in the second then four runs each in the third and fourth innings. Shelby Davis tripled and singled for Lynnville-Sully. Brenna Lanser and Shaylin Lukehart each had two singles. Hitting a double each were Kristin VanderWilt and Becca Vos while Kasiah Ehresman and Jade Van Rees had a single apiece.
PCM softball remains unbeaten JEWELL — The Mustangs finished Monday night where they did all of last week: in the win column. Prairie City-Monroe recorded its frouth straight win, and its largest margin of victory so far this year, in a 12-2 defeat of South Hamilton. Freshman pitcher Kayla Jennings picked up her second win of the season while striking out a season-high 12 batters. She also hit her first home run of the season in the sixth inning. Jennings’ solo home run was one of several offensive highlights for the Mustangs. Molly Vignovich scored every time she reached base and finished the night 4-for-5 at the plate with a RBI. MacKenna Van Veen went 2-for-4 with three RBIs and Rachael Freland collected three hits and one RBI.
C-M softball suffers 2nd loss of season Colfax-Mingo’s three-game winning streak came to an end Monday night against Greene County. The Rams beat the Tigerhawks, 4-0, Monday night, giving ColfaxMingo its first loss since its season opener. Defensive miscues cost the Tigerhawks in their second loss of the season. Colfax-Mingo committed four errors and three of the four runs Greene County scored were unearned. Greene County junior Marissa Promes kept Colfax-Mingo’s offense in check all night, allowing only two hits and striking out seven. Freshman Amy Russell again pitched a complete game for ColfaxMingo. Russell was effective with her pitches around the plate, throwing 57 strikes to only 16 balls, but allowed eight hits in her six innings in the circle.
Solid pitching from freshman leads CMB over Nevada NEVADA — A close game throughout saw Collins-Maxwell/ Baxter score a few insurance runs in the final innings to secure a 4-0 win over Nevada Monday night. The Raiders struck early in the second inning when Veronica Condon singled in Katie Camp from second base for a 1-0 lead. Camp pinch-ran for Abbey Appelgate, who walked to reach base. That lone run would’ve been enough for Heather Jessen, who pitched her second complete game shutout in as many games for

CMB. The freshman gave up four hits, one walk and struck out three. She benefitted from some solid defensive plays from her teammates in the first inning when Nevada loaded the bases but wasn’t able to score. Jessen helped her own cause in the sixth inning when she singled in Camp, who was again pinchrunning for Appelgate. Payge Jurgens doubled her team’s lead in the final inning when she capped off the night with a tworun home run, her first of the season. Appelgate and Mackenzie Schmitz both reached base four times. Abbie Haupert and Condon had two hits a piece.
Offensive outburst leads PCM to victory
JEWELL — Eight Mustangs drove in runs Monday night in Prairie City-Monroe’s 19-8 thumping of South Hamilton. Austin Brown led the Mustangs with a three-hit, five RBI-performance that included his first home run of the season. Sophomore Clay Cooper and senior Chase Keuning also drove in three runs a piece. PCM out-hit South Hamilton, 12-9, and benefitted from 12 walks handed out by South Hamilton pitchers. Brown also started the game on the mound for the Mustangs. He earned his second win of the season while pitching 4 1/3 innings, allowing one earned run and striking out three. He also walked two and hit two batters. PCM is now 3-1. The Mustangs next game is tonight in Prairie City at 7:30 against South Tama.

Heat locking in on Finals, not what summer brings MIAMI (AP) — For the Miami Heat, it’s all about June. July can wait. Four years ago, when LeBron James uttered that now-infamous phrase — “not two, not three, not four, not five ...” — about how many championships he hoped to win with the Heat, it was almost immediately turned into a punch line. It rings prophetic in some ways now, with the Heat back in the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive season. How the Heat fare in their NBA Finals rematch with the San Antonio Spurs might dictate what happens in July, when James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade can become free agents if they choose. A looming offseason of decisions has been a taboo subject for the Heat “Big 3” this season, and Wade insisted Monday that Miami’s stars have not said a word to each other about what may or may not happen. “I’m not lying,” Wade said. Still, as long as Miami keeps winning, it seems logical the “Big 3” will stay together. “I want to come back. That’s OK to say, I think,” Bosh said Monday after the Heat finished their first workout
in preparation for the NBA Finals, which begin Thursday in San Antonio. “I can’t speak for anything else and I don’t want to take away from the subject at hand, but I like it here. It’s Miami. Enough said. People are dying to get here.” Regardless of the outcome of this Heat-Spurs series, there will be changes to the Heat, which is an annual rite for just about every team. James, Wade and Bosh can all opt out of their current deals. Shane Battier is retiring, Ray Allen may think about doing the same, while Mario Chalmers, James Jones and Rashard Lewis are notable free-agents-in-waiting. It’s not just the “Big 3” who aren’t thinking too far ahead, yet. Allen said no one in the room is looking past anything but this series — especially with the Spurs’ Tim Duncan saying San Antonio will get it done this year after falling short against the Heat last season. But as James noted, both teams have their own motivation. “That’s the great thing about having veterans,” Allen said. “Nobody worries about what’s not here yet.” Winning a third straight title could make some of those stay-or-go
Honest track coach costs team state title NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The honesty of a Massachusetts high school’s track and field coach has cost his team a state championship. North Attleborough High was declared the winner of the state Division 2 meet Sunday, edging Central Catholic High of Lawrence by one point. But when coach Derek Herber combed through the results Monday, he found a scoring error. The Rocketeers had been awarded eight points for a second-place
finish in the 110-meter hurdles, when they should have received two points for a seventh-place finish. Herber told his athletic director, who informed the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association and Central Catholic officials. Minus the six points, North Attleborough finished third. Athletic director Kurt Kummer tells The Sun Chronicle the community is more proud of the team now than after they were anointed champions.
Milwaukee tops Twins MILWAUKEE (AP) — Matt Garza took a shutout into the seventh inning and Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer, sending Milwaukee past Minnesota. Garza (3-4) scattered six hits over 6 1-3 scoreless innings against the team that brought him to the big leagues in 2006. The righthander, signed to a $50 million,
four-year deal as a free agent in the offseason, struck out eight and walked two for his first win since May 5. Jonathan Lucroy homered and hit an RBI single. Kyle Gibson (4-5) allowed four runs and six hits in six innings. He has won just one of his last eight starts after winning his first three.
Royals shut out St Louis ST. LOUIS (AP) — Shelby Miller permitted just one runner to reach scoring position in the first six innings before faltering. The St. Louis hitters, meanwhile, remained stuck in a funk. Danny Duffy worked six innings of one-hit ball and Alex Gordon homered to start a breakout three-run seventh for the Kansas City Royals in a 6-0 victory over the suddenly punchless defending National League champions on Monday night. “We’ve got to find something,” manager Mike Matheny said after the Cardinals fell to 2-6 with one game to go in a nine-game home stand. “This isn’t working.” Matt Holliday had two singles and a walk for the Cardinals, who have been shut out in consecutive games at home and have singledigit hit totals the last four games. Yadier Molina, just 2 for 21 on the homestand, snapped at a few reporters and then apologized, saying, “I’m just frustrated.” Matt Adams went on the 15day disabled list during the weekend, but Matheny said there’s no common thread to the recent offensive woes. “It would be nice if we could just put our finger on it and fix it,” Matheny said. “It’s a lot of different things.” The Royals had just two singles off Miller (6-5) in a game that had been scoreless before they opened the seventh with four straight hits. Gordon’s fifth homer ended a 15-inning scoreless drought and Mike Moustakas capped the rally with a two-run double. “It was frustrating to let them have the game like that,” Miller
said. “It’s on me, for sure. Gave it all away.” Between Holliday’s single with two outs in the first and his single leading off the seventh, the Cardinals were 0 for 17 with a walk — also by Holliday in the fourth. Coming off an 8-0 loss to San Francisco on Sunday, the Cardinals were shut out two straight times at home for the first time since 1992 against Pittsburgh, and by six or more runs at home in two straight games since dropping a doubleheader to the Reds in 1937. “We’ve had lots of meetings, we’ve had the conversations we needed to have,” Matheny said. “What we’re doing right now isn’t going to work and they know that. We all do.” Duffy (3-5) struck out five and walked one, rebounding from consecutive losses in which he surrendered 10 earned runs in 10 innings. Three relievers completed a three-hitter. The Royals advanced one runner to second base before Gordon led off the seventh with his fifth homer, a drive over the Cardinals’ bullpen in right field. Lorenzo Cain beat out an infield hit unsuccessfully challenged by the Cardinals and Miller threw his second wild pitch of the inning after a visit from pitching coach Derek Lilliquist, setting up Moustakas’ double. Kansas City added three in the eighth. Cardinals rookie center fielder Randal Grichuk struck out three times and whiffed fielding the ball on the RBI single by Salvador Perez, allowing a second run to score.
decisions pretty simple. And Wade believes Miami’s legacy has been secured. “Whenever it’s all said and done, the legacy of this team, it’s going to be a great team,” Wade said. “It’s going to go down in history as an unbelievable team not only in South Florida but in NBA history.” Given that, it’s easy to see why so much attention gets paid to how long this team can stay together. Bosh, Wade and James all made it very clear in September that they were not going to let the summer of 2014 turn into the circus that the summer of 2010 was, when all three became free agents and decided to bring their talents together. Entering the season, James said that his teammates “understand where I stand” regarding the future. And on Monday, James said he wasn’t going to let himself be distracted by thinking about what impact the result of these NBA Finals will have on the legacy the Heat have created over the last four seasons. “No, because I live in the moment,” James said. “It’s almost the same with my individual accomplishments. I never really understand them. The
only time I’ll be able to appreciate it is when I’m done playing the game. I’m in the moment. I don’t even think about it.” Bosh was the last player off the practice floor Monday. And when the conversation turned to what happens after these finals, he was reluctant, he said, to think about anything beyond Game 1 on Thursday night. “It’s difficult enough concentrating on trying to get back to this point, let alone trying to win it,” Bosh said. “We’ve done that before. All of us made a lot of mistakes in 2010, which is going to happen because that was our first time being in it. But now, not only are we vets in the league, with playoff experience, we know what to expect.” What decisions to expect this summer, that’s another story. “We still don’t know,” Battier said. “It’s hard to explain with our group. We have a bunch of guys that sort of go with the flow. I think when the Big 3 signed here there was talk of legacy and there was talk of history. That’s all academic at that point. Once you put the uniform on it’s about competing your tail off and putting yourself in position to win, which we have.”
Former QB Marino suing NFL PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino is among the latest group of football players to file a concussion-related lawsuit against the National Football League. The 52-year-old former Miami Dolphins quarterback is one of 15 former players who filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia last week. Marino and the other 14 plaintiffs join more than 4,800 others who have alleged the NFL misled
players about the long-term dangers of concussions. The NFL has denied those claims. The lawsuit doesn’t specify any medical problems suffered by the plaintiffs including Marino, who retired in 1999. It seeks unspecified damages and medical monitoring. The NFL and the original group of players agreed on a $765 million settlement last August. But the settlement was rejected by a federal judge in January.

Astrograph Tuesday, June 3, 2014
The Gemini sun says, “Lighten up,” while the Leo moon says, “Stop telling me what to do.” The Leo moon can be intensely passionate one minute and silly and playful the next. This mix of energies is a free pass to experiment. Dare to attract sideways glances! Dull energy will be refreshed by novelty, surprise and laughter. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 3). You’ve been working on yourself inside and out. Improvements have you feeling good, and it will show in all you do. You’ll win a contest next month. August heals a relationship and begins a new adventure. You’ll get rid of something you’ve been carrying around with you and feel free in September. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 1, 36 and 40. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You do not want to do as your friend tells you. You feel you know better, even though you may have no practical experience in the matter.
Your resistance is there for a reason on this one. CANCER (June 22July 22). Think of your thoughts as a kind of worship, and every time you think of something, you are paying a kind of homage to that thing. So what are you worshipping that you don’t mean to be? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re inhabiting this thing you think is your personality, when really, if you take a step back from it, it is just a series of decisions you made. You can agree to them or change them at any point. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). As long as you’re doing this business of imagining what your life could be, you may as well imagine immensities. The people you admire certainly have! Look where it got them. You can do this, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The object of your attention and affection will run. Don’t chase. This requires the utmost discipline, but if you can
manage to stand still until the other person comes back around, you’ll both be in a better place. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re entitled to change lanes when it’s safe for you to do so. You may get a few looks — people don’t like change; it makes them nervous. No matter, you’re allowed and should claim your new direction. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you make a goal of proving yourself, you’ll have to do it over and over endlessly. Instead, make a goal of growing. That may also be endless, but you’ll unquestioningly be better for it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You are privileged in some way, and because of this privilege, you are obligated to those who are less so. Start as early as you can in this endeavor so you have longer to work on it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You’re quite simply not doing what you love often enough.
How could you get in more of it? Could you cut back on another activity — one that doesn’t make you nearly as happy? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Ignore the definitions others give you, and don’t define yourself, either. As for your potential, act on the premise that it is unknown and unknowable. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t like to be led down thought paths, and when you feel like someone is trying too hard to influence you, you resist. You’ll get the facts you need to reason out a problem for yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are on fire with the mystical forces, the same ones that made the stars and wild horses and Ferris wheels. Your sense that anything is possible is absolutely true.
