County supervisors to vote on I-Green contract By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer During Tuesday’s meeting, the Jasper County Board of Supervisors will take the final steps to close out the previous deal it had struck with the I-Green Learning Center. County Attorney Mike Jacobsen will present two action items to the board with regard to I-Green. The first is a vote on accepting a quit deed from the center versus a contract forfeiture. The second is a vote on paying the property taxes on the land the center was at.

In June, I-Green Director Phil Stender came to the board to inform them the project no longer had enough funding to continue operations. “At this time, we have no funds and our intention is to dissolve the corporation,” Stender said in the June 25 meeting. “I apologize for the late timing in coming to you with this. We didn’t know we weren’t going to have funds until late last week. My request this time is that the county release us from our contractual obligation.” The I-Green facility was located at the site of the former Jasper County Care Fa-

cility. In 2010, Stender proposed to the board that I-Green would pay $550,000 in annual payments of $33,328 for the next four years. When payments reached $200,000, the county will forgive the remainder, $350,000, as part of a grant to facilitate the construction and operation of the facility. All three board members expressed disappointment in the facility’s closure at the time and will likely approve both of Jacobsen’s requests. I-GREEN See Page 3A

activity that we could tie together with our topic of the week,” Neal said. Not all the people of service were able to pick apples, but that didn’t stop them from having fun. In the orchard, the Zmoleks set up chairs so people could sit and enjoy the six apple trees. “It’s not just going out for the apples,” Neal said. “They like going out to just sit in the yard and enjoy the space.”

Lin Chape knew there would be a time when she would run for City Council. The current vice president for human resources and organizational development at Vermeer Corporation said if she is elected to the council she would see it as a way of paying back the community. “Iowa and the City of Newton have just been welcoming to me,” said the California native. “This city means something to me in terms of personal caring for. I know that if I had an issue. I could go to the police department. I can go to the hospital and feel safe. I can go to any of those places. I’m home.” In 2004, Chape began working at Maytag as its director of training and staffing. In 2006, Chape took a contract with Whirlpool. During her contract, she worked with the city to transition the community for Maytag’s closing. “I did that because I thought the city deserved it,” Chape said. “I could have gone on and gone elsewhere. I chose not to do that.” After their departure, Chape received several offers, but didn’t take them and instead elected to open her own business when she was offered a job at Vermeer.

Whether ‘government shutdown’ happens or not, key piece of healthcare act will begin Tuesday By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hours before a threatened government shutdown, the Senate has the next move Monday on must-do budget legislation that has fueled a bitter congressional dispute over President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. But the Senate won’t be riding to the rescue, at least not immediately. When it convenes at midday, the Democratic-led chamber is expected to reject the latest effort

Regardless of the outcome of today’s frenetic action in the halls of the U.S. Capitol, the Health Insurance Marketplace, a key component of the Affordable Care Act, will go into effect beginning at midnight. That’s when the open enrollment period will begin for new policies that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2014, the current deadline for all Americans to have health insurance. “The Marketplace,” also referred to as the “health insurance exchange,” is intended to provide health insurance coverage to those who don’t currently have it, or for those who are looking to decrease the cost of their existing coverage. In Iowa, The Marketplace is administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Those seeking insurance plans through The

DES MOINES (AP) — After years of debate and preparation, the launch day of the biggest new social welfare program in a generation has arrived. Starting Tuesday, uninsured Iowa residents will be able to use the new online marketplaces created under President Barack Obama’s health care law to compare and buy health insurance plans. About 264,000 Iowa residents under 65 without insurance could benefit from the law, but just how many people will immediately participate is hard to know.

Those who don’t buy insurance will pay a penalty next year.

Scams Continued from Page 1A Posing as insurance agents or representatives of the federal government, these scam artists try to sell fraudulent policies or obtain sensitive information like Social Security and bank account numbers. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners and the Iowa Insurance Division are warning consumers about common red flags and providing tips on how to avoid being the victim of a scam. Health Insurance Marketplaces One of the largest components of the ACA is the creation of new health insurance marketplaces, or exchanges. These online portals ask consumers to enter information about themselves and select the level of coverage they desire to receive a list of plans they can purchase. Iowa is partnering with the federal government, which is running the Iowa Health Insurance Marketplace. Open enrollment in the new marketplaces begins October 1. However, bogus websites that purport to be part of the exchanges have been appearing online for more than a year. Do not enter any personal or financial information into a website that says you can purchase a policy before the open enrollment period. You can find a link to the Iowa Marketplace at

zheimer’s Association or to the Good Samaritan Fund at Park Centre may be left at the funeral home. Memorials also may be mailed to the funeral home; add, Attn: Gearhart Family on the envelope.     

Medicare Cards Another common ploy involves unsolicited calls from scammers who claim to have your new “Obamacare” insurance card — they just need to get some information before they can send it to you. The caller then asks for credit card numbers, bank account information or your Social Security number. A variation of this trick specifically targets seniors on Medicare; the caller claims that in order for them to get their new Medicare card and continue receiving their benefits, they must verify their bank account and routing numbers. Some callers ask for their Medicare numbers, which are identical to Social Security numbers. “You are not required to obtain a new insurance or Medicare card under the ACA,” said Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart. “Also, anyone who is a legitimate representative of the federal government will already have your personal and financial information and should not ask you to provide it.” Don’t Be Misled Here are some other important “red flags” to watch out for: • The salesperson says the premium offer is only good for a limited time. Enrollment in the exchanges will be open from Oct. 1 to March 31, and rates for plans in the exchanges will have been approved for the entire enrollment period. Be skeptical of someone who is trying to pressure you into buying a policy because the rate is only good for a short time. Remember: if the offer

Survivors include her children, Dr. Lenly (Lynn) Gearhart of Wilsonville, Ore., and Merryll Van Weelden of Newton; nine grandchildren; 24 greatgrandchildren; and 23 great-great-grandchildren.

sounds too good to be true, it probably is. • The salesperson says you could go to jail for not having health insurance. Starting in 2014, all Americans will be required to have health insurance. You will not face jail time if you do not purchase health insurance. However, those who remain uninsured and do not qualify for any exemptions will face a penalty of $95 (for each adult) or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater. In 2015, the penalty will increase to $325 per adult or 2 percent of family income, and in 2016 and beyond, the penalty will be $695 per adult or 2.5 percent of family income. • You receive an unsolicited phone call or email from someone trying to sell insurance. The federal government and Iowa regulators will not be contacting individual consumers to sell them insurance. Do not give any sensitive information to anyone who claims to be with the federal government, the Iowa Insurance Division or a navigator for Iowa’s exchange. Protect Yourself The best way to protect yourself from insurance fraud is to research the agent and company you’re considering. Always stop before writing a check, signing a contract or giving out personal information. Call the Iowa Insurance Department at 1-877-9551212 or visit the state website at www.iid.state. and confirm the agent and company are licensed to write insurance in Iowa.

In Iowa’s Interest

Harkin: What government shutdown means for Iowans Editor’s Note: the following is a letter submitted to the Daily News over the weekend on the subject of the federal budget and the current disagreement between the Republican-led House of Representatives and the Democrat-controlled Senate on a concurrent resolution to continue funding government. To the editor: This fall Congress faces a number of decisions the outcome of which will have significant ramifications for the middle class and the economy. I’d like to take this opportunity to provide you with an update about the decisions and the impact they will have on Iowans. September 30, barring action by

Congress, funding for the Federal Government will lapse and many critical functions performed by the federal government will cease. That’s why earlier (Friday), with my support, the United States Senate passed legislation to keep the government open through mid-November. This legislation was passed without attaching any extraneous or controversial provisions. A government shutdown would have a real, negative impact on Iowa businesses, consumers, seniors and veterans. Not only would a shutdown unnecessarily cost taxpayers billions of dollars, but it would also deny many critical services to Iowans.

Among other things, federally supported early childhood centers will cease operation, Social Security staff will not be available to answer questions or accept new applications, national parks and monuments will close, small business loan applications will not be reviewed, and services for veterans and pay for the military will be delayed. In addition, America’s standing and reputation as a country that can govern and face its challenges head on will be impaired. In the five years since the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, Iowa communities have led our nation’s economic recovery. A government shutdown will be a

I’m a pest too! Perhaps some tire of my frequent articles on the Emerald Ash Borer that is bearing down on Central Iowa. My cause is simply to make all aware of what we are facing.  Check the species of trees in your yard, or along your street or throughout your community and rural area.  If they’re black, white or green ash trees, their years are numbered.  Remember, there is no known cure for an in- Sen. Dennis Black fected tree, for once the Iowa Senate District 15 exotic insect pest has entered the tree through the bark, the cambium will be encroached by the larvae, and girdling and irreversible damage with death to the tree is inevitable. On Monday I drove to Fairfield and Burlington to observe the onset of eventual devastation of these three species of trees, which tend to make up the majority of shade trees that were planted following the Dutch Elm disaster of forty years ago.  In Fairfield, I could pick out the ones where vitality was compromised and advanced color change in the upper canopy foliage was evident.  It was fairly easy to discern the healthy ash trees from the infected.  In Burlington, it was an advanced story.  The city has already been declared “infested,” and in certain parts of the community ash trees had been removed, or were marked for removal, and foliage vitality was such that the insect pest had already done its job on many I observed.  No ash tree in the nation is immune from this scourge that probably made its way to America from Asia inside the wood of shipping crates. If you have ash trees, be proactive in their replacement.  Unless a biological or chemical cure miraculously occurs, the trees are most likely doomed.  The best that can be done is to enjoy the ash while it remains healthy, but start planning and planting replacements as soon as possible.  Why not yet this fall?  Or, no later than next spring.  A plethora of shade tree species exist that you can plant now, and have a head start when the Emerald Ash Borer hits your yard.  Encourage the city to do the same.  I will not suggest who you purchase your trees from, but there are many private nurseries where you can obtain quality specimens in plastic containers or “balled and burlapped.”  Key to the survival of new plantings is to dig a hole at least twice the size of the contained root system.  Fill the hole with water to the surface, allowing it to entirely seep into the soil.  Do that a couple of times to thoroughly saturate the site, and only then remove the tree from the canister, untangle the compacted and cramped root system for aeration, and then spread the roots evenly throughout the hole while having someone back-fill with the granulated soil.  Your nursery person will be a valuable help in species suggestion and planting methods.  But, above all else, no more monoculture!  Select a variety of shade species, giving diversity to your yard and reducing the chance of another single-specie planting being wiped out by some yet unforeseen insect or pathogen.    Any questions or comments, e-mail me at, or call (515) 9758608.

setback to these communities and to the economy as a whole. Such a situation is not only unfortunate, it is wholly preventable. It is the obligation of Congress to build on that work and to simply keep the government open. I am hopeful that Congress can reach an agreement this weekend. Know that I will do all that I can to keep Congress focused on keeping our economy and our middle class moving forward. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact any of my offices in Iowa or in Washington, D.C. Tom Harkin United States Senator

Empty Nest

The mystery of the missing dog collar Buddy loves his walks. He visits neighborhood dogs Shay, Chloe, Rosie, and Teddy, making sure he leaves his scent just on the other side of their fence where they can’t get at it.  He chases cicadas and By Curt Swarm toads and, Guest Columnist if he should spot a rabbit or squirrel, tugs at his leash, stands on his back legs, and yips in a high-pitched squeal.  Buddy is not a barker.  Too cute with his black and white markings, and curled tail, he is a treat to be with.  He actually smiles on these two-a-day walks.  The neighbors get a kick out of Buddy, bending down to give him a pat and a behind-theear scratch.  Rolling on his back for a tummy rub, Buddy is everybody’s buddy. When we got back to the house, as I took off Buddy’s leash, I noticed his collar was missing. “What the …? Was he not wearing his collar when I put his leash on? Did he slip out of his collar while on our walk, and I didn’t notice?”  I keep his collar pretty loose

so if he gets hung up, he can slip out of it. “Buddy, where is your pretty, purple collar?” He cocked his head and looked at me with his eyes sparkling. If Buddy could only talk. The purple collar was Holly’s collar, and I’m sentimentally attached to it. Buddy has slipped out of his collar before, but it was readily found in the house. Mary and I searched the house over. No collar. Buddy seemed content to run around collarless, naked as a jay bird. We retraced our steps through the neighborhood. We asked the neighbors, “Have you seen a purple collar?” No one had. I have a 10-by-10-foot pen outside of a window, with steps on each side, so that Buddy (and previously, Holly) can go in and out. Holly is buried in the pen, and I have her grave covered with bricks and stones. Of course, Buddy is quite curious about the grave, and tries to dig around the stones. “That must be where the collar is!” The revelation was like a shot in the dark. I searched the pen thoroughly, praying to St. Anthony, the Saint of lost objects. Still, no collar. This went on for four days. I was about to call the vet to get a duplicate rabies tag made. The law requires all dogs to wear this

tag. The collar I could replace. It wouldn’t be as pretty as Holly’s purple collar, but any port in a storm. I heard Mary holler, “The collar!” She had just let Buddy in from his trip to the pen. I rushed to the window. There it was, all covered with dirt, the purple barely distinguishable.  I had searched that pen quite thoroughly. Apparently, Ole Buddy Boy had buried his collar (he’s quite the digger), and then dug it back up. He looked at us, with his tongue lolling out, real pleased with himself. St. Anthony always comes through. Mary scrubbed the collar with hand soap, and the bright purple reappeared. There would be no “third-time-is-a-charm” with Buddy’s collar. It was obviously too loose. I tightened the collar down a notch and held it in front of Buddy. He extended his nose for me to slip it on, his tail wagging. He likes Holly’s collar. I checked the tightness. I can still put two fingers easily between the collar and Buddy’s neck, so he can squeeze out of it if necessary. I often wonder what Holly Dog would think of Buddy. Their personalities are as different as night and day. Their “link” is the purple collar and, of course, me. Thank God for dogs.

Those plans each cover the same core set of benefits, called “essential health ben-

Shut-down Continued from Page 1A from House Republicans to use a normally routine measure to attack “Obamacare.” If no compromise can be reached by midnight, Americans would soon see the impact of a government shutdown. National parks would close. Many lowto-moderate incomes borrowers and first-time homebuyers seeking government-backed mortgages could face delays. About 800,000 federal workers would be forced off the job without pay. Some critical services such as patrolling the borders, inspecting meat and controlling air traffic would continue. Social Security benefits would be sent, and the Medicare and Medicaid health care programs for the elderly and poor would continue to pay doctors and hospitals. Senate rejection would send the measure back to the House, where conservative Republicans want to delay by a year key parts of the new health care law and repeal a tax on medical devices as the price for avoiding a shutdown. A House GOP leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, said the House would rebuff the Senate’s efforts to advance the short-term funding bill as a simple, “clean” measure shorn of antiheath care reform provisions. Since the last government shutdown 17 years ago, temporary funding bills

known as continuing resolutions have been noncontroversial, with neither party willing to chance a shutdown to achieve legislative goals it couldn’t otherwise win. But with health insurance exchanges set to open Tuesday, tea party Republicans are willing to take the risk in their drive to kill the law, so-called “Obamacare.” “You’re going to shut down the government if you can’t prevent millions of Americans from getting affordable care,” said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. A leader of the tea party Republicans, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, insisted the blame rests with Senate Democrats. “The House has twice now voted to keep the government open. And if we have a shutdown, it will only be because when the Senate comes back, (Senate Majority Leader) Harry Reid says, ‘I refuse even to talk,’” said Cruz, who led a 21-hour broadside against allowing the temporary funding bill to advance if stripped clean of a tea party-backed provision to derail Obamacare. The effort failed. The battle started with a House vote to pass the short-term funding bill with a provision that would have eliminated the federal dollars needed to put Obama’s health care overhaul into place. The Senate voted along party lines to strip that out and sent the measure back to the House. The latest House bill, passed early Sunday by a near party-line vote of 231-

192, sent back to the Senate two major changes: a one-year delay of key provisions of the health insurance law and repeal of a new tax on medical devices that partially funds it. The steps still go too far for the White House and its Democratic allies. Senate rules often make it difficult to move quickly, but the chamber can act on the House’s latest proposals by simply calling them up and killing them. A senior leader vowed the House would not simply give in to Democrats’ demands to pass the Senate’s “clean” funding bill. “The House will get back together in enough time, send another provision not to shut the government down, but to fund it, and it will have a few other options in there for the Senate to look at again,” said McCarthy, the No. 3 House Republican leader. He suggested that House Republicans would try blocking a mandate that individuals buy health insurance or face a tax penalty, saying there might be some Democratic support in the Senate for that. On the other hand, Democrats said the GOP’s bravado may fade as the deadline to avert a shutdown nears. Asked whether he could vote for a “clean” temporary funding bill, Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, said he couldn’t. But Labrador added, “I think there’s enough people in the Republican Party who are willing to do that. And I think that’s what you’re going to see.”

Information about prices and benefits will be written in simple language, providing a clear picture of what premiums must be paid, and what benefits and protections are provided by each plan. Through the application process, participants may also learn if they are eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

A leading Senate GOP moderate called on her fellow Republicans to back down. “I disagree with the strategy of linking Obamacare with the continuing functioning of government — a strategy that cannot possibly work,” said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. McCarthy wouldn’t say what changes Republicans might make. He appeared to suggest that a very short-term measure might pass at the last minute, but GOP aides said that was unlikely. Republicans argued that they had already made compromises; for instance, their latest measure would leave intact most parts of the health care law that have taken effect, including requiring insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions and to let families’ plans cover children up to age 26. They also would allow insurers to deny contraception coverage based on religious or moral objections. Tea party lawmakers in the House — egged on by Cruz — forced GOP leaders to abandon an earlier plan to deliver a “clean” stopgap spending bill to the Senate and move the fight to another must-do measure looming in mid-October: a bill to increase the government’s borrowing cap to avert a market-rattling, first-ever default on U.S. obligations. McCarthy appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” while Cruz and Labrador were on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Van Hollen appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

I also think there’s really strong collaboration between economic development group and the group under Frank Liebl.” Chape said those properties hurt the image of Newton and those wanting to reside in town or open a business could be turned away by the conditions of those properties. She said she supports Newton’s housing ini-

tiative which was introduced to the council at their last meeting. “I’m one of those people that wants to step up and join the team and continue the journey,” Chape said. Chape and all other candidates for City Council, including Evelyn George and Steve Mullan, are running unopposed. Mayor Mike Hansen is also making a bid for his seat and is unopposed.

Family won’t pay deadbeat dad’s cremation expenses DEAR ABBY: I was divorced 14 years ago. Afterward, my ex, “Tom,” hid from me because he was afraid I’d have him arrested for not paying child support. Our son is a Marine, and the Red Cross notified him that his father was dying in a hospital on the East Coast. My ex’s aunt had contacted them to notify my son as next of kin. Tom had remarried, divorced again and had a girlfriend. He died a few days later. Nobody is willing to pay for his cremation. I asked his sister and aunt if we could split the bill three ways, even though I realize I’m not obligated. They refused, even after being told the remains would be deemed “unclaimed.” The county would dispose of him as an indigent drifter. Their excuse was they hadn’t heard from him in several years. I told them they were preaching to the choir, since I was the one he hid from. I do not resent my ex because I realize his death was as unpredictable as his life. But I do feel bitterly taken advantage of. When I accused his relatives of false concern, they got angry at me. How can I demonstrate honor to my son by dishonoring his father that way? — ON THE SPOT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR ON THE SPOT: You are not the next of kin; your son is. Ask him what he thinks would be the appropriate way to handle his deadbeat dad’s remains. You made the effort to have the family pay for the burial, and that should show your son that you tried to honor his father. I don’t know how long it has been since your ex passed, but this is a case where the body could have been donated to a medical school. There is nothing dishonorable about that. DEAR ABBY: A friend who lives out of town asked me if she can stay with me for a few days. We often host each other. However, she also mentioned that she has a bedbug infestation. I could take precautions, but some friends have said it was nervy of her to even ask because it put me in an awkward position. I honestly would prefer she not come, but I feel guilty. Any advice? — POSSIBLE HOST IN NEW YORK

DEAR POSSIBLE HOST: Yes. Tell your friend you would love to see her, but in light of her revelation, you think it would be better if she stays in a hotel during this visit. And unless you are absolutely sure that her home and clothing are insect-free, entertain her away from your dwelling. Bedbugs can cling to EVERYTHING — suitcases, clothing, you name it. Hostess, protect thyself. DEAR ABBY: My husband died three years ago and I’m still grieving deeply. Time hasn’t made it easier; in fact, it’s getting more difficult. No one around me understands or even cares, for that matter. How do I find a good therapist? I don’t know what questions to ask to see if I can trust him or her with my thoughts, and if we would get along. Any suggestions? — DYING OF A BROKEN HEART DEAR DYING: A way to find a good therapist would be to ask friends and/or your doctor for referrals and explain that since your husband’s death your grief hasn’t lessened. Your state psychological association can also provide the names of members who specialize in grief counseling. Interview several prospective therapists. A question you should ask is how many patients with your problem he or she has successfully treated. However, the bottom line is whether you feel the therapist listens well and has the compassion to help you, which is as important as any diploma hanging on the wall. You’ll know when you meet someone you are comfortable with.

Airfares down at Des Moines airport with Southwest Airlines DES MOINES — One year after Southwest Airlines began flying out of Des Moines, airfares at the airport are cheaper. The Des Moines Register reports Airport Director Don Smithey credits Southwest for the lower fares because other airlines adjusted prices to compete. The U.S. Transportation Department says Des Moines’ airfare fell 6.9 percent between the first quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013. That was the third-largest drop in the U.S. at a time when airfares were increasing in most places. Southwest began offering twice-a-day flights from Des Moines to Chicago last September. The discount airline added a daily flight to Las Vegas on Sunday.

Dave Hon/Daily News Choices, a Christian bookstore located on the downtown Newton square, has been open since 2004. One of the owners, Julie Jones, said it’s not just a store for Christians.

Local Christian bookstore isn’t just for Christians By Dave Hon Daily News Staff Writer For Larry and Julie Jones, who work full time elsewhere, owning Choices seems like it’s always been part of their plan. Choices is a Christian bookstore that’s been open since 2004. Even though Choices is a Christian store, Julie said it’s not a store solely for Christians. She said people from any walk of life can find something for themselves in the store. “We do sell non-Christian items as well,” Julie said. “We have some fair-trade merchandise. We have monthly specials that have really good discounts.” Jones and her husband, Larry, got the idea to open Choices in 2004 after talking with a counselor about another business.

Government nears shutdown, stocks drop NEW YORK — The U.S. stock market dropped early Monday as it became all but certain that the federal government would partially shut down for the first time in 17 years. In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 142 points, or 0.9 percent, to 15,124. The Standard & Poor’s 500 slid lost 12 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,680 and the Nasdaq composite dropped 34 points, or 0.9 percent, to 3,748. Selling was broad in early trading as all 30 companies in the Dow fell. Wall Street’s attention is on Washington. Congress and the White House have not reached an agreement to pass what’s known as a continuing resolution to fund the government, with only hours before the midnight deadline. If the government does partially close, it would be the first time since the 21-day government shutdown under President Bill Clinton from late December 1995 to January 1996.

The Zmolek’s are pictured below in front of one the trees in their apple orchard. The Zmoleks invited the people of service at Progress Industries to their orchard to pick apples.

Orchard Continued from Page 1A The trees had low enough hanging fruit to where some could simply reach and grab an apple. Others had fun using the apple picker, with assistance. One man, Bob Tedrow, quickly climbed up the ladder and began passing apples down to other people. “The ones that do get up on the ladder are pretty courageous,” Lee said. Catherine said Lee, whose son Stewart is a person of service at Progress Industries, spends a considerable amount of time during the year taking care of the orchard. She

said they require a lot of pruning. When the buses from Progress Industries arrived, Catherine quickly showed everyone where the ripest apples were. “It’s just a joy to see the happy faces on the people,” Catherine said. Even though caring for the orchard takes time, Lee said his work on the orchard is more a labor of love. “I like serving. That’s what this whole thing is about,” Lee said. “I love the joy that’s in here,” Catherine added, motioning to her heart.

Cardinals secure third at Nevada Invitational By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

NEVADA — Newton’s Cardinals haven’t played at home much yet this season. They were on the road again over the weekend, taking third at the Nevada Invitational. This coming Saturday it will be Go Red. Newton hosts its NHS Invitational with several Little Hawkeye Conference foes coming in as well as others to the Cardinal court. Matches begin at 8:30 a.m. The Cardinals extended their winning streak to nine matches early Saturday at Nevada. They won all three pool play matches. They dealt out a 215, 21-8 loss to Madrid to begin the day. A warm-up to Tuesday’s Little Hawkeye showdown, the Cardinals knocked off Dallas Center-Grimes 21-10, 21-8. Newton, which is 3-0 in conference play, travels to DCG Tuesday. The varsity match is at 7:15 p.m. Finishing pool play, the Cardinals defeated Atlantic 21-19, 21-11. They advanced into the championship round of the tournament. It took two ranked opponents to halt the Cardinal run. Newton lost to Class 3A sixth-ranked Nevada 25-17, 25-19 and to 3A’s 13th-ranked Iowa Falls-Alden 25-23, 25-12. After going 3-2 in the Nevada tournament, the Cardinals are 16-6 — nine match wins away from a team goal of breaking the NHS season match-victory record. That record is

Hawks dominate for first win By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor LIBERTY CITY — Two 0-4 football teams met Friday night in Class A, District 6 action. The Hawks were much better than the Warhawks. Lynnville-Sully’s Hawks doubled their offensive scoring output for the first four games of the 2013 season. They rolled up a 77-14 win over host Southeast Warren. The Hawks were dominant on both sides of the football. Senior running back Melieck Meyer had a breakout game. Meyer scored three touchdowns for the Hawks. He rushed for 128 yards on eight carries. One of his touchdowns came on a 54yard run. Eleven players carried the football for the Hawks. They amassed 412 yards rushing in the game. Sophomore Sage Ehresman was 3-of-3 passing for HAWKS See Page 2B

to play ahead more, and not have to come from behind to win sets. When we play ahead we can relax, and play stress free. We are not doing that enough for my liking.”

Raiders spoil Cubs’ homecoming, win 49-20 By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer NEVADA — It happens all the time. Two teams are locked in a close game until one big play happens, and everything snowballs. That’s exactly what happened for the CollinsMaxwell/Baxter Raiders in their 49-20 drubbing of Nevada’s Cubs on Friday night. The Raiders were ahead 21-7 following two strikes down the field from quarterback Zach Samson, — one to Austin Moorman and a touchdown pass to Bryce Kemp — but the Cubs were driving on the back of a strong running game and had the ball deep into Raider territory. That’s when the game was broken wide open. “The way our offense

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Will Brock (50), Nick Glotfelty (44) and Zakk Weatherly (45) combine to bring down Grinnell quarterback Eli Dunne in the first half of Friday’s game. Dunne led the Tigers to a 60-35 win over the Cardinals at H.A. Lynn Stadiuim.

passes. It all shifted in the second half. Newton lost 60-35. T h e Cardinals used a Wood five-play, 56-yard drive to tie the game at 14-14 at the 1:12 mark of the second quarter. The 38-yard touchdown pass from junior Tyler Wood to junior Nick Easley allowed Wood to tie the NHS career touchdown-pass record. A minute later, Wood had the record. Colton Henson intercepted a Dunne pass on a fourth-down play, returning it 23 yards to the Tiger 38-yard line. Wood put the ball in the air. Easley went up and snatched away from two defenders for the touchdown. “We had them right where we wanted them at the end of the first half. We made the big play to put us up. We had all the momentum,” said Ed Ergenbright, Cardinal head coach. “They (Grinnell) didn’t really make any adjustments against us in the second half. “The same plays were working but we got stagnent. We lose our edge in games. It’s perplexing why it happens. We have to figure that

out.” Unfortunately, Dunne and the Tigers came roaring out of halftime. By the midway point of the third quarter, Grinnell had scored twice. On the first drive of the second half, Dunne hooked up with Christian Graham on a 65-yard scoring strike then he threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Lucas Honold. On both plays, Cardinal defensive players missed tackles and the Tiger receivers broke loose Three plays and out for Newton’s offense, plus the defense giving up big plays and factor in punts against a stiff southern wind, the Cardinals found themselves in a hole quickly in the second half. All the things they did not want to do against the high-flying Tiger offense in Class 3A, District 4 play, happened. Grinnell scored 26 points in the third quarter. Newton didn’t score. A 70-yard touchdown run by Bryce Lidtka opened the fourth period, putting the Tigers up 47-21. Newton responded with a nine-play, 88-yard march to the end zone. Tristan Peters’ run got the drive started with only the second first down of the half for the Cardinals. NEWTON See Page 3B

Aquagirls take third at Valley Invitational By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor WEST DES MOINES — Setting goals and reaching those goals are part of competition. “Our team goal going into Saturday’s meet was to place third. We did that,” said Sarah Patterson, head coach, after the NCMP Aquagirls competed in the West Des Moines Valley High Invitational swim meet. “Almost everyone on the team scored points, and there were many good swims by our girls. Some of the top relays and swimmers in the state were at at this meet, so it provided good competition.” Waukee edged out host Valley for first place, 514 points to 512. Newton/ColfaxMingo/Pella scored 330 points for third place. Lewis Central was fourth with 266, followed by Sioux City Metro with 188 points and Cedar Rapids Washington with 75. “Overall, it was a good meet for the middle of the season. We take on Marshalltown Monday night,” Patterson said. “Then we head to Ankeny Thursday, where I told the girls, we had better pack our bags with every intangible they can think of because it’s going to take a team effort to take down the Aquahawks.” Tonight, the Aquagirls swim against Marshalltown starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Newton YMCA. At the Valley Invitational, Sydney Jenkins, Sierra Griffith, Hannah Scotton and

Sara Martin combined for third place in the medley relay race, making the podium for medals. The NCMP B relay was seventh with the foursome of Rachel Prendergast, Hannah Rhoads, Emily Miller and Emily Forsyth. That gave the Aquagirls a solid start in the meet. The 100-yard butterfly was NCMP’s strongest race, according to Patterson. Samantha Hedrick paced the Aquagirls in the race, winning it just ahead of teammate Scotton. Carly Colville placed fifth. Patterson said freshman Emily Miller dropped two seconds off her seed-time in the 100-yard butterfly. Jenkins captured the second-place medal in the 100-yard backstroke. “The winner of the event was initially disqualified for staying under too long on her streamline, but then the official reversed his decision after the coach from Lewis Central complained,” Patterson said. “We all thought it was a clear case of violating the rules, but the official’s decision was final. At any rate, this was Sydney’s season-best swim, and she looked strong.” Martin climbed on the podium by placing third in the 100-yard breaststroke. She was joined by Griffith in fifth place. Patterson said it is great to have multiple girls on the awards stand in the same event. Miller, again, turned in a best time in an event, placing 10th in the breaststroke. Carly Colville stepped on the podium for fifth place in the 200-yard freestyle. Sarah Prendergast posted a personal-best time of

2 minutes, 11.97 seconds and placed 12th. In the individual medley, Martin was fourth followed by Rhoads and Sierra Griffith in eighth and 13th, respectively. Abby Jolivette dropped two seconds and won her individual medley heat to place 15th, earning team points. “Sarah Prendergast led the way for NCMP in the 500 placing ninth with a season-best 5:55.02,” Patterson said. “She keeps dropping a little more time every time she swims the event. I’m enjoying watching her get out after this race and want to own it.” The 400-yard freestyle relay ended the meet. The relay team of Rachel Prendergast, Carly Colville, Jenkins and Herick claimed fourth-place medals. The B relay team of Sarah Prendergast, Kira Hanson, Elizabeth Myers and Rhoads placed ninth. “We didn’t back down from the last event, in which multiple girls had season-best splits,” Patterson said. “First of all, I want to mention the split and mental toughness of Rachel Prendergast. She made some stroke adjustments from her individual 100 freestyle, and dropped almost two seconds on her relay split. I could coach this girl all day long. “Her relay placed fourth behind three of the fastest relays in the state right now. Our B relay team turned in a time of 4:05.44. This is a very fast time for a B relay. Hannah Rhoads went a 59.5 split, dropping under that magic-minute mark. She is a very hard worker, and this is a result of that work ethic and tenacity.”

Senior Zack Kaldenberg led the Hawk defense with four solo tackles and four assisted tackles. LynnvilleSully’s defense held the Warhawks scoreless for three quarters. The Hawks led 57-0 at halftime and 63-0 after three quarters. In a 42-point first quarter, Lynnville-Sully scored at will, including two punt returns for touchdowns by Bailee Samson and Caden Dunsbergen. “We got through that four-game stretch. The kids kept working and had the right mind set. They never quit,” said Mike Parkinson, Lynnville-Sully head coach. “We saw Friday night what we can do — how explosive we can be on offense. I love the attitude our guys bring to the field, both at practice and in games.” Parkinson said he expects those attitudes to be buoyed by the big win, as the Hawks prepare for this Friday’s Lynnville-Sully homecoming game against Pleasantville in Sully. The Hawks are 1-2 in Class A,

District 6 play, 1-4 overall. “The Pleasantville game is a big one for us. It’s homecoming and it’s another district game,” Parkinson said. The Hawks moved Ehresman to quarterback and senior Brandon Dunsbergen to receiver. Meyer used his speed and quickness as a changeof-pace running back to fellow seniors Samson and Caden Doll out of

the Hawk backfield. Doll finished with 66 yards on six carries and Samson had 49 yards on three carries. Doll scored two rushing touchdowns. Samson caught two touchdown passes, plus had the punt return for a score. Ehresman rushed for a touchdown as did Caden Dunsbergen. T.J. Cunningham, a senior, had one catch for six yards. “Our first unit defense was only in together for a couple of series. We were able to play a lot of younger guys in Friday’s game. They stepped up and did a solid job on both sides of the football,” Parkinson said. Doll, Samson, and Daniel Zimmerman each scored a two-point conversion for the Hawks. Noah Engle kicked five extra points. Doll recorded three solo tackles and three assisted tackles, while Payton Scandridge made three solo stops and five assisted tackles. Caden Dunsbergen had three solo stops and six assisted tackles, and Noah Zylstra had two solo tackles and four assisted tackles. Blake Wehrle set up a touchdown with a fumble recovery and return.

PCM moves to 2-0 in district with win at I-35 By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer TRURO — Fresh off a big win to open district play against Collins-Maxwell/Baxter on Sept. 20, Prairie City-Monroe head coach Greg Bonnett said the team needed to treat the long ride down to Truro to face Interstate 35 as a “business trip”. His team seemed to get the message, effectively taking care of business with a 35-6 victory. The win moves the Mustangs to the top of the Class 2A, District 6 standings in a tie with Albia, which sits at 3-0. Senior Blake McWilliams shouldered the brunt of the yardage burden for the Mustangs with 150 rushing on 18 carries, but the scores were well spread out, with four different Mustangs scoring touchdowns. Zach Uhlenhopp continued to impress in his senior campaign with the versatility he exhibited. He ran the ball twice for 31 yards, caught two balls for 27 yards and a touchdown, and he returned a punt 47 yards for a score. Uhlenhopp also had a kickoff return that nearly went the distance, returning one 70 yards. Quarterback Logan Gilman threw the ball eight times, completing five passes for 84 yards and a touchdown. Jade Coleman rushed six times for 36 yards and a touchdown. Ronnie Marshall ran seven times for 43 yards and a touchdown. The Mustangs picked off three passes on the night. Clay Cooper, Ricky Reeve and McWilliams had those turnovers. Marshall and Ryan Jennings each recovered fumbles, as well. McWilliams led the team with 12 tackles, followed by Luke Pendroy with 11. Coleman had 10 tackles. Marshall recorded nine. Brandon Charls had eight tackles, and Luke Cummings had five.

Newton: Wood, Easley set TD pass records Continued from Page 1B Wood, who was 9-of-16 for 220 yards on the night, had back-to-back passes to Peters and Deonne Harris to move Newton into Tiger territory. J.T. Thongvanh ripped off a 13-yard run followed by an 11-yard dash by Wood. Thongvanh pushed ahead five yards from the 10-yard line, and Joseph Banfield had the five-yard touchdown run at the 6:40 mark. Grinnell chewed up the next three minutes on a drive, capped by a one-yard scoring run by Lidtka. Lidtka finished with 223 yards on 20 carries. Dunne fired up 29 passes, completing 13 for 276 yards and three touchdowns. Wood’s school record for career touchdown passes went to 15, when he found Peters for a 25-yard scoring strike with 1:01 on the game clock. Grant Davidson kicked his fifth extra point of the night and it was 54-35. Wood eclipsed the previous holders of the NHS career mark, Doug Dietrich and Adam Rens, who both had 13 touchdown passes in their Cardinal careers. Wood tied a NHS record for most touchdown passes in a game at three. There are six players, who share the record. Easley also tied a school record with two touchdown catches in a game. He shares this honor with numerous former Cardinals. Newton had struck first in the district contest. On their second possession, the Cardinals needed just two plays to go 80 yards. Wood found a wide open Peters, who raced to the Grinnell 19-yard line. Wood scored on a 19-yard quarterback keep. The Tigers’ second possession was much like the first, three plays and punt. Ray Schroder had the first sack of Dunne in the opening possession then Jordan Travis pulled down the Tiger quarterback. Daquan Allen got the next one. With under three minutes remaining the first quarter, Grinnell had to punt for the third time. Peters muffed the

punt and Grinnell’s Griffin Reding recovered the football at the Newton seven-yard line. Dunne had a one-yard dive up the middle on third down for the touchdown. It was 7-7 with 1:14 on the first-quarter clock. A short pass to Garrett Jay, a missed tackle by the Cardinals, and the Tigers were at the Newton 45-yard line a minute into the second quarter. Lidtka took it from there to the end zone on the run. Newton began the tying touchdown march with 3:27 on the clock at its own 44-yard line. Wood hit Peters on a roll-out pass that got the Cardinals on Grinnell’s side of midfield. On a fourth-and-five play, Wood and Easley hooked up for the touchdown. It was another fourthdown play that gave the Cardinals the lead. Dunne and the Tigers went for it on fourth-and-two at the Newton 40. Hansen tipped the pass up in the air and hauled in the football, returning it to the Tiger 38 with 23 seconds before halftime. Wood found Easley in a jump-ball situation in the end zone, putting Newton in front 21-14 at the break. Thongvanh led the Cardinals in rushing, 52 yards on nine carries, followed by Wood with 49 yards on 16 carries. Peters caught four passes for 107 uyards and Easley had two for 76 yards. Harris made one catch for 32 yards. “We were really close to getting to him (Dunne) on pass plays in the second half like we did in the first half. You have to give them credit because they came out and made some plays,” Ergenbright said. “I probably shouldn’t have given them the wind in the third quarter, but I thought we could run the ball against them and get some stops.. I wanted the wind in the fourth quarter, expecting to have a lead or in a close. It didn’t turn out that way,” he added. Ergenbright said the wind

effected the kicking game (punts) “but it doesn’t effect run blocking and tackling.” Allen, senior defensive back, led the team with seven solo tackles and two assisted tackles. Senior linebackers Nick Glotfelty — four solos and six assists — and Will Brock — three solos and three assists — were next on the defensive list. Senior Levi Michener and sophomore Bryce Tish each had three unassisted tackles. Newton is 2-3 overall and 1-2 in Class 3A, District 4 play.

By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor SIGOURNEY — Dillon Branderhorst scored twice for Pella Christian’s Eagles in Friday night’s 40-21 loss to host Sigourney/Keota. Mason Howerzyl had the other touchdown for the Eagles. “I’m not discouraged. The guys are playing hard. We did a lot of good things tonight,” said Rich Kacmarynski, Eagle head coach. “Sigourney/Keota has a good team and run the single-wing offense, which was tough to stop.” The Savages took a 7-0 lead, but the Eagles responded with a 10-play drive, capped by a two-yard touchdown run by Branderhorst with 9:58 left in the second quarter. Sigourney/ Keota was up 13-7 and Pella Christian was on the march. “We had a strong drive going, and it was first down on their 20 but a holding penalty threw us out of our flow. We never got it back,” Kacmarynski said. “We also had a key interception in the second quarter.” The Savages took full advantage of the Eagle miscues, scoring another touchdown before halftime to lead 27-7. They took the second-half kickoff and scored the lone touchdown of the third quarter. Brandenhorst ran 14 yards to paydirt for the Eagles at the 7:52 mark of the fourth quarter, making it 33-14. Sigourney/Keota answered back with its final touchdown three minutes later. The Eagles mounded a fiveplay, 55-yard drive for a touchdown. Howerzyl plowed over the goal

line from four yards out for the score. Jacob Brouwer kicked his third extra point of the game for Pella ChrisVan Zee tian. Howerzyl rushed for 98 yards on 24 carries, and Miles Wichhart had 63 yards on 12 carries. Colten Collins threw for 51 yards, going 5-of-12 passing. Carson Dugger caught two passes for 16 yards, while Howerzyl had a 20-yard catch, and Jake De Ruiter had one reception for 15 yards. Zach Van Zee racked up 10 solo tackles and two assisted tackles for the Eagles’ defense. David Kacmarynski had eight solo stops. Howerzyl had four solos and two assisted tackles. Cooner Milligan had four unassisted tackles. The loss dropped the Eagles to 3-2. Earlier this week, Pella Christian was awarded a 1-0 win because of a forfeit ruling by the Iowa High School Athletic Association. Prairie City-Monore had beaten Pella Christian on Sept. 7, but found out it allowed an ineligible player participate in that game, and reported it to the IHSAA. Pella Christian returns to Class 1A, District 7 play this Friday at home in Pella against Ogden.

Hawk volleyball team loses at home By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor SULLY — Home court was not kind to Lynnville-Sully’s Hawks last Thursday.

Bulldogs hammer Tigerhawks in Ogden By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer OGDEN — Colfax-Mingo’s football team suffered its third consecutive loss on Friday at the hands of the Ogden Bulldogs, 61-0. Despite starting the year with two big wins, the Tigerhawks have sputtered on both ends of the ball in district play, with each of their three losses coming by more than 40 points. Both sides of the ball have been struggling, but it has been the defense finding it difficult to keep opposing teams out of the end zone. The Tigerhawks have given up 67, 61 and 61 points in their last three games, respectively. Nate Smith was perhaps the most productive of the Tigerhawk players against the Bulldogs. He led the team with 41 receiving yards, while also making six tackles and recovering a fumble on the defensive end. Sophomore quarterback Jared Myers picked up 81 yards on 10-for-21 throwing the

football. He also ran the ball seven times for eight yards and recorded eight tackles from his defensive back position on defense. Jake Lietz, a sophomore running back and linebacker, rushed the ball seven times for 27 yards and caught five passes for 16 more yards. He was also second on the team in tackles with 10, including a sack. Alan Wheeler led the Tigerhawks with 11 tackles, nine of them solo. Also chipping in on the defensive effort was Jake Buehrer with eight. Blake Summy and Colin Lourens had four tackles apiece. Marcus Tmolonovic, Cameron Warner and Michal Deal each had three tackles. Senior Juan Gonzales had one rush for 25 yards, and he caught two passes for 12 more. Gonzales also recorded one solo tackle.

Astrograph Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Before you go to bed tonight, command yourself to remember your dreams. They are not neural babble; rather, their significance crosses many layers of consciousness weaving netlike from the collective to the individual and back again. Dreams get more interesting as Mercury and Neptune align to infuse imagination with new fuel. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 1). Your birthday brings confidence and clarity. A dry spell will end this month, and you’ll feel a fresh flow of excitement visit your realm of personal relationships. November pleasantly changes the direction of your work. Sell something of high value and reinvest in January. You’ll give an acceptance speech in March. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 48, 17, 41 and 39. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You could worry about things not under your control, or you could channel that energy into the things

you can do something about. More than likely, you’ll do a little of both. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A person doesn’t have to be lying to be totally wrong. There is a lot of misinformation in the world. Try not to read too much into the exchange of bad information. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). The work you did last week is only now starting to be recognized by those whose opinions matter to your future. More than compliments, you want advancement -- and that’s just what you’ll get. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People present the side of themselves that they want you to see and believe. You’re too keen to take that as the whole truth. You’ll see through the cracks of the fa‡ade and address the reality. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be concerned with the larger implications of your activities. If a practice makes you skillful,

blameless and happy, it’s something worth pursuing. If it brings a lot of garbage and politics into play, it’s not worth pursuing.

ramifications. Learning more effective coping skills could actually help you live longer and will certainly help you live better.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Seize the moment of silent reverence offered you. “No more words. In the name of this place we drink in with our breathing, stay quiet like a flower, so the nightbirds will start singing.” -- Rumi

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re in a different place in your life than some of the people who are around you today, which is precisely why you have a lot to offer one another. The gift of a different perspective cannot be underestimated now.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A person who doesn’t know what good is cannot be happy. Your conscience may keep you from following a hedonistic path, but ultimately joy is better than pleasure. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Call the expert, Google the question on your mind, ask your mom. Do your research first, before you decide on a plan of action. Research will tell you what is not even worth pursuing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stress may be a fleeting reaction to the moment, but it also has long-term health

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like that people younger than you have things that weren’t available to you growing up. But sometimes younger people teaching the older ones can bring an unsettling dynamic. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are things that are richer than power and privilege, but sadly some people lack the ability to experience them or even believe they exist. That’s why your compassion is a muchneeded force in the world. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
