By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer Today, citizens of Jasper County can get a preview of what’s to come. The Jasper County Conservation Office will host a “walk and talk” tour on the grounds of its future Environmental Education Center at 5 p.m. The Jasper County Environmental Education Center will be located across from the former county care facility, which is also where the walk will take place. JCC Director Keri Van Zante talked about the project. “In May 2009, we announced our intention to seek a location for a new nature and conservation education center in Jasper County,” she said. “The facility has been a longtime dream of numerous conservation board members dating back 25 years in our board minutes.” Van Zante views the project as not just another county park but as something bigger that will benefit all of Jasper County. “(We hope to) reach more than 20,000 people annually by providing outdoor learning experiences to students of all ages,” she said. “The Center will be a significant tourism attraction and welcome center for Jasper County, as well as a hub for promoting the use of all Jasper County Conservation areas.” In addition to promoting the county, she sees the building as a way to showcase the benefits of a green lifestyle. “Jasper County has defined itself though the production of renewable resources, from wind energy to biodiesel,” Van Zante

Newton Masonic Lodge honored said. “This education center demonstrates conservation and sustainable design through the use of photovoltaic cells, passive solar energy, geothermal and a living roof.” Van Zante said the conservation board has just started fundraising for the project this summer and spent the last two years working on the design of the building, which boasts some impressive specs. “The Environmental Education Center will be a stateof-the-art facility that will provide an extraordinary location for research, education, and family enjoyment,” she said. “The building is approximately 12,640 square feet and features flexible spaces, including a display area, laboratory, classrooms, storage, kitchen, outdoor viewing platform and offices. The facility will also serve as a community venue, capable of holding events for 400 people utilizing the main and lower levels.”

There also will be various attractions around the facility, including a sculpture park, amphitheater and community garden. The current estimated cost to complete the project $2.9 million. Van Zante is hoping the walk will inspire donors to be a part of the project. “This project has been discussed for more than 25 years by past and present conservation community leaders. Now is the time,” Van Zante said. Staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@newtondailynews.com.

Four fun October activities for you With the arrival of October, we are ever so reminding of the nearing winter and how much more we could have done during the delightful summer. I’m not sure about you, but fall is my By Kate Malott favorite h o l i d a y Daily News Staff Writer because of the weather and the changing environment. This month, if you get the opportunity, here are a variety of activities you can do to get into the lovely fall spirit. Seasonal Cooking Whether it’s pumpkin bread or apple cookies, everyone enjoys a treat now and then and what better time to experiment with pumpkin and apple. There are endless options when it comes to cooking with pumpkin and apple, but no matter what you try, you can’t go wrong with the spice of the season. Make some treats for your neighbors, co-workers or family and to make it even more fall like, add a little decor. It’s a great way to liven up someone’s day. Pumpking Carving It doesn’t matter how old you are, you’re never too old to carve a pumpkin with a loved one. You start out with a pumpkin and a knife, and then you make a fantastic mess and let your creative side show. Whether it’s with your husband, grandaughter or a group of friends, carving pumpkins can be an event if you add treats like cider and snacks. This is a fairly inexpensive activity too. Don’t forget the newspaper. Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad Just an hour to the northwest of Newton is a wonder opportunity to experience the beauty of fall. The Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad and Museum offers multiple types of rides and one wonderful view of rolling hills and river valleys. There are a variety of ride lengths, prices and views to consider, but one of my favorite is the picnic train because you can bring your own meal with you. If you want inexpensive, go with the basic ride because it will not disappoint, but if you’re willing to splurge, then the dinner train is absolutely the way to go. Legends State Park Another place in the same general vicinity of Boone is quaint and colorful Legends State Park. The park is carved by a large sandstone gorge that provides a variety of hiking experiences, but nothing extreme. In fact, the trails are not intensive. You can have lunch with your family in the valley bottom and enjoy the scenery, or you can climb to the top to concur an excellent river view. Another bonus to this stop is that it’s free. One of my most beloved memories while at Iowa State was a autumn afternoon at Legends because of the remarable colors, views and other happy people enjoying the great outdoors.

Usual Eccentric

Love tastes like freezer burn For the last year the most heinous of all wedding anniversary traditions has rested dormant in the back of our freezer next to frozen stir fry and chili. This sugary concoction of confectionary has been locked in solitary confinement in the cramped confines of a white cardBy Will E Sanders board box that Creators Syndicate takes up more than a quarter of our freezer space. This sugary, diabetic-shock-inducing dessert has been the sole reason why our freezer never seems to have enough space for extra bags of pizza rolls. Contained within this special box was the top tier of our wedding cake. The two-leveled cake was strawberry with white floral icing and edible beads just edible enough not to be considered a choking hazard to small children (and grown adults). And we both planned on eating some of it. After one year of marriage there is only one downside as far as I am concerned — now I have to remember another day of the year. Memory is not my strong suit. Being forgetful, specifically as it relates to important dates that need remembering, that’s my strong suit. I excel spectacularly in

the field of; wait, what was I talking about again? There are several wedding anniversary traditions that don’t make a lick of sense to me. Usually I am a huge fan of seemingly pointless traditions, especially a tradition for tradition’s sake. Traditions don’t actually mean anything, and most of them are illogical. Every year we actually believe a dirty rodent in Pennsylvania can predict the weather with more accuracy than the moronic morning meteorologist on television. So I stuck with tradition and turned to the wedding anniversary gift chart. The first year of marriage is a paper present. Paper. What am I suppose to do? Buy Christine a legal notebook and a pack of paper plates and say, “Happy first anniversary!” I don’t think it works like that. Or worse, just give her a hundred bucks. “But honey, it is made of paper. Can’t you see I’m trying to stick with tradition here?” But by far the worst, most illogical marital tradition has got to be eating a piece of your wedding cake on your first anniversary. Let’s look at this on a purely nutritional and, more importantly, biological level here: Attempting to digest year-old cake is not a smart activity to engage in. In the course of my daily endeavors, I try to avoid eating food that has celebrated at least one birthday.

Extracting the cake box from the freezer created an avalanche of frozen food. Light items, like a bag of frozen peas, fell harmlessly to the floor, while heavier items, like cylinder canisters of frozen juice concentrate, fell directly on my unprotected toes. Once the frozen food ceased attacking me, we delicately transported the cake box to the counter and, with the grace of someone handling unstable uranium rods, opened the box cautiously. A dense and dramatic amount of ice vapor rolled out of the box’s top like dry ice. We tried using a knife to cut the cake, which was practically frozen solid. When that didn’t work we chiseled away at the cake like it was a granite block. After several tries we had managed to carve out a piece of the cake. So we tried eating one-year-old, completely frozen cake because that’s what tradition dictates, right? Why else perform foolish activities, such as purposefully ingesting old food and tempting fate with a wicked case of severe food poisoning? Who knew that love tasted so much like freezer burn? When the time came to discuss the cake’s future we were sad to make a decision. In the end we decided to save a small scrap of cake in the freezer for next year when we felt like taking a stroll down sentimental street — and the next time we wanted to experience a severe case of heartburn.

‘The Dixie Swim Club’ to open at NCT By Terry & Rachel Faidley Special to the Daily News “The faster we swim, the sooner we win” is the rallying cry of the five champion teammates of a Georgia college swim team. The curtain opens on the former teammates gathering at their summer weekend retreat on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Still the team leader at age 44, Sheree, played by Skye Westendorf , is the organized and efficient captain, planning their annual weekends to the hilt.  Dinah, played by Stephanie Moran, is the career driven, hard hitting (and drinking) attorney. Lexi, realized by Andrea Smith, is a chronic divorcee, completely absorbed in her own self image. Vernadette, played by Julie Schaeffer, is best described by a teammate as, “Your life is just one endless country song.” Completing the team we meet, Jeri Neal, brought to the stage by Amy Prime, as a nun who at age 44 is turning over a new leaf. “The Dixie Swim Club” lets us glimpse the women as they meet annually to share their trials and tribulations, joys and sorrows. The dynamics of their relationships begun in the

Halferty completes 104th session of National Sheriffs’ Institute Special to the Daily News Jasper County Sheriff John R. Halferty participated in the 104th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute on Sept. 8-14 in Aurora, Colo. The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs. This no-cost program is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections and the National Sheriffs’ Association. Halferty joined 26 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing America’s sheriffs today. In light of those challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations and organization effectiveness and efficiency.

“Sheriff Halferty is a leader with vision for the Jasper County Sheriff ’s Office,” said Fred G. Wilson, NSA director of operations. “It is an honor to have Sheriff Halferty join the more than 2,500 graduates of the NSI since 1973.” The NIC is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons. It is the primary federal source of technical assistance, training, and information services for state and local corrections. NIC provides a wide variety of services to the nation’s jails, most of which are the responsibility of sheriffs. The NSA is a nonprofit professional association located in Alexandria, Va. NSA represents the nearly 3,100 elected sheriffs across the nation and has more than 18,000 members, including law enforcement professionals, state and federal government employees, concerned citizens, students, and others.

There is the potential for a few tornadoes, especially over North-Central Iowa, Friday afternoon and across Central Iowa late Friday afternoon and evening.” Storms began impacting Jasper County this morning, producing brief periods of heavy rain and wind. As of press time, those storms were expected to taper off by midafternoon. Storm spotter activation is anticipated for Friday afternoon and evening in Jasper County. All Jasper County-area high school football teams, regardless of whether they are playing at home or on the road, will be in the NSPC’s warned area. The storms are expected to impact Ames, where Iowa State University will play against the University of Texas tomorrow night, as well.

Iowa senator quits after report on Bachmann money IOWA CITY (AP) — An Iowa state senator resigned Wednesday after a special investigator found it likely he violated ethics rules by taking money from political entities connected to former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and then denying he’d done so. Sen. Kent Sorenson told The Associated Press that he had already decided he would not run for re-election, and that his resignation was best for his family. He said his decision was “absolutely not” an admission of wrongdoing. “I’ve spent money fighting this that I shouldn’t have. I’m just not going to do that to my family anymore,” he said in a telephone interview. His resignation came after attorney Mark Weinhardt said in a report released earlier in the day that it was “manifestly clear” Sorenson negotiated payments in 2011 that eventually reached $7,500 monthly in exchange for his work as Bachmann’s Iowa campaign chair. The money flowed from Bachmann’s political action committee, MichelePAC, and her presidential campaign to a Colorado consulting firm, which in turn paid Sorenson’s Iowa-based firm, Weinhardt wrote in the report filed with the Iowa Senate. Sorenson’s compensation from MichelePAC is a violation of a Senate rule that bars senators from being paid by political action committees, Weinhardt wrote. Senators will have to decide whether the payments from

her presidential campaign also violate the rule since it is unclear, he wrote. Sorenson knew that accepting the compensation was improper, and later made false statements when he denied that he had taken money tied to Bachmann entities, Weinhardt wrote. Those statements might amount to misconduct in office, a felony that would also be a violation of the ethics rules, the investigator added. Weinhardt was appointed to investigate an ethics complaint filed against Sorenson by a former Bachmann aide. Weinhardt’s report went to the Senate Ethics Committee, which is expected to meet to consider the report and what to do about it. Before announcing his resignation, Sorenson said he disagreed with the report’s conclusions that he made false statements or that he had accepted compensation from Bachmann’s camp. “I was never employed by Michele Bachmann. I was never employed by Bachmann for Pres-

ident. I was never employed by the PAC,” he said. “I had a corporation that worked for a corporation that worked for Michele Bachmann.” Washington-based lawyer William McGinley, who’s representing Bachmann’s campaign, did not immediately return phone and email messages left by the AP. The report contains the most detailed findings yet in a scandal that has swirled around Sorensen since he defected from the Bachmann campaign days before the 2012 Iowa caucuses to support Ron Paul. Bachmann, a Minnesota congresswoman, alleged then that Sorenson was switching allegiances due to payments from Paul’s campaign. Weinhardt’s report said that Sorenson had received a $25,000 check from a Paul backer that Sorenson did not cash. Sorenson also received $73,000 in “deeply suspicious” wire transfers, but Weinhardt said he was unable to connect them directly to Paul’s campaign. Sorenson declined comment on the wire transfers Wednesday. Peter Waldron, the former Bachmann aide who filed the complaint against Sorenson, said the case cried out for stronger ethics rules barring direct and indirect payments to state lawmakers from presidential candidates. “I am pleased to be vindicated but naturally regret that the Iowa first-in-the-nation caucus position has been soiled by the events uncovered by the Special Counsel,” Waldron said in a statement.

Husband’s anxiety threatens to push wife over the edge DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my best friend, “Blake,” for two years. A year ago he started having panic attacks, so I made an appointment for him with his doctor. After checking him for everything, including heart failure, the doctor diagnosed him with anxiety. Since his diagnosis, Blake is scared to leave the house. I have been working two jobs to make ends meet because he says he “can’t work.” This has taken a toll on our marriage. We have three kids and a lot of bills. Blake is on medication and has tried many different ones, but they aren’t working. All he talks about is his anxiety and every little ache or pain. He thinks he’s going to have a heart attack. I am fed up with it, while he says I just “don’t understand anxiety.” Sometimes I think he’s making his anxiety worse. I don’t know what to believe or what to do. Any suggestions? — STRESSED IN VIRGINIA DEAR STRESSED: Yes, I do have one. Your husband should be seen by a licensed mental health professional (psychologist) who works with a psychiatrist. He may need more than medication to help him conquer his anxiety disorder. He might do better with a combination of talk therapy in addition to his meds. Please urge your husband to do this because the aches, pains and anxiety he’s experiencing may seem like they’re all in his head to you, but they’re real to him. It could save your marriage. DEAR ABBY: My husband and daughters and I enjoy a beach trip every year. With our busy lives, it’s the one time in the year we are able to be together and relax. Although we have invited friends and family over the years to join us, I have never invited my sister. She keeps bringing it up and portrays me as the snobby sister. The truth is she has two undisciplined children whom I can’t stand to be around. I suspect she just wants to join us so she can pawn her kids off on me while she and her husband relax. My mother is now telling me I’m self-

ish and not being a good sister. Must I sacrifice my one week a year at the beach to make my sister feel better? Please advise. — IT’S MY VACATION DEAR MY VACATION: Considering that you have invited friends and family to join you, but not your sister, I can see how she might feel snubbed. Has no one told her your reason for not inviting her and her family to join you? If not, someone should, because it might motivate her to assert more control over her children. If she takes offense, however, you will be off the hook because SHE will no longer want to socialize with YOU. DEAR ABBY: We have a housecleaner once a month. Last month, I offered her some grapefruit from our tree and she took six. This month, she helped herself to all of the fruit that was left on the tree! She didn’t ask permission, and she didn’t tell me she had done it. I happened to see her put it into her car. I consider this to be stealing, but my husband does not. Because she took the fruit without permission and without telling me, do you consider it stealing? — “ANITA” IN FLORIDA DEAR “ANITA”: The woman may have assumed you wouldn’t mind if she took the fruit because you had offered it to her the month before. (Did you say she could take only six?) Rather than call this stealing, I would call it a misunderstanding. Clear it up by telling your housecleaner that you want nothing removed from your premises unless you have SPECIFICALLY told her she may have it.

Pet overpopulation affects every community in Iowa. All animal welfare organizations agree that spaying and neutering of animals is the answer to this problem. However, some families just cannot afford these procedures. In honor of National Feral Cat Day on Wednesday, Oct. 16, the Animal Protection and Education Charity and the Animal Protection Society of Iowa are working together at the Great Iowa Pet Expo to provide central Iowa with low-cost neuter packages for male cats and kittens as part of its “Neuter-a-Tom” opportunity. The Great Iowa Pet Expo is being held in the 4-H Building of the State Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct. 19, and Sunday, Oct. 20. A.P.E. is encouraging Iowans to help prevent unwanted litters of kittens by having cats and kittens altered. The “Neuter-a-Tom” event is being endorsed by the Jasper County Animal Rescue League and Humane Society, which also strongly encourages the altering of pets to help minimize the local overpopulation challenge. During the Great Iowa Pet Expo, A.P.E. is teaming up with local veterinarians to offer this once-a-year event that is open to anyone needing a male cat altered. No income or resident restrictions are required. The special grant-based cost of $20 is limited to 125 tomcats on a firstcome, first-served basis. Pet owners can register their cat for this event online at www.ape.checkappointments.com. For more information, contact A.P.E. at (515) 4607729 or via email at united4ape@hotmail.com. What’s included: • Neuter Surgery* ​• Distemper and rabies vaccinations** ​• Microchip ID ​• Revolution treatment for fleas, ear mites, roundworms and hookworms ** Cats must be older than 12 weeks to receive the rabies vaccine. * Kittens as young as eight weeks and three pounds can safely be neutered.

Eating with the Season: Apples Jenny Thompson RD, LD, CDE Diabetes Education, Outpatient Dietitian Skiff Medical Center Fruits and vegetables taste best and cost less when they are in season. There is also less storage and transport time involved therefore nutrient content of the produce remains high. Check this ISU Extension site for Find a Farm: www.visitiowafarms.org/find_a_farm/. This site includes information on U Pick, Specialty Products or Crops and Farmer’s Markets in Iowa. October is apple picking time in Iowa. You’ve heard, “An apple a day will keep the doctor away.” While it will certainly take more than a daily apple to keep you healthy, it is a step in the right direction. Apples are delicious, easy to carry for snacking, low in calories, locally available and inexpensive. A medium apple contains approximately 80 calories and 5 grams of fiber. Apples contain soluble fiber, which helps to prevent cholesterol buildup in the lining of blood vessel walls, thus reducing the incident of atherosclerosis and heart disease. This fiber also provides bulk in the intestinal tract, holding water to cleanse and move food quickly through the digestive system. Studies show that high intakes of quercetin, a nutrient found in apples, is associated not only with a reduction in lung cancer risk but also with a reduction in the risk of asthma and diabetes. It is best to eat the skin! Many of the nutrients are located in and just underneath the skin. There are hundreds of varieties of apples available. Apples can be sweet, tart, soft and smooth or crisp and crunchy, depending on the one you choose. Have an apple today!

Store apples in a cool, dark place such as the fruit crisper drawer, basement or garage. Fresh picked apples will keep for several months if stored properly. Preserving Apples Apples may be preserved by canning or freezing. Enzymes in fruits such as apples and pears can cause oxidative browning as soon as the fruit is peeled or cut. Chemical compounds are used to control enzymes in these fruits. The most common treatment is ascorbic acid (vitamin C) such as Fruit Fresh. Browning can also be halted by placing fruit in citric acid or lemon juice solutions or in sugar syrup. Apples, as well as other fruits, retain better texture and flavor if packed in sugar or sugar syrup. However, sugar is not necessary to preserve fruit. Check Iowa State Extension for more information on preserving apples: www. extension.iastate.edu.

Global study: World not ready for aging population The world is aging so fast that most countries are not prepared to support their swelling numbers of elderly people, according to a global study being issued Tuesday by the United Nations. The report ranks the social and economic well-being of elders in 91 countries, with Sweden coming out on top and Afghanistan at the bottom. It reflects what advocates for the old have been warning, with increasing urgency, for years: Nations are simply not working quickly enough to cope with a population graying faster than ever before. By the year 2050, for the first time in history, seniors older than 60 will outnumber children younger than 15. Truong Tien Thao, who runs a small tea shop on the sidewalk near his home in Hanoi, Vietnam, is 65 and acutely aware that he, like millions of others, is plunging into old age without a safety net. He wishes he could retire, but he and his 61-yearold wife depend on the $50 a month they earn from the shop. “People at my age should have a rest, but I still have to work to make our ends meet,” he says, while waiting for customers at the shop, which sells green tea, cigarettes and chewing gum. “My wife and I have no pension, no health insurance. I’m scared of

thinking of being sick — I don’t know how I can pay for the medical care.” Thao’s story reflects a key point in the report, which was released early to The Associated Press: Aging is an issue across the world. Perhaps surprisingly, the report shows that the fastest aging countries are developing ones, such as Jordan, Laos, Mongolia, Nicaragua and Vietnam, where the number of older people will more than triple by 2050. All ranked in the bottom half of the index. The Global AgeWatch Index was created by elder advocacy group HelpAge International and the U.N. Population Fund in part to address a lack of international data on the extent and impact of global aging. The index and analyzes income, health, education, employment and agefriendly environment in each country. The report fits into an increasingly complex picture of aging and what it means to the world. On the one hand, the fact that people are living longer is a testament to advances in health care and nutrition, and advocates emphasize that the elderly should be seen not as a burden but as a resource. On the other, many countries still lack a basic social protection floor that provides income, health care and housing for their senior citizens.

Afghanistan, for example, offers no pension to those not in the government. Life expectancy is 59 years for men and 61 for women, compared to a global average of 68 for men and 72 for women, according to U.N. data. Many governments have resisted tackling the issue partly because it is viewed as hugely complicated, negative and costly — which is not necessarily true, says Silvia Stefanoni, chief executive of HelpAge International. Japan and Germany, she says, have among the highest proportions of elders in the world, but also boast steady economies. Prosperity in itself does not guarantee protection for the old. The world’s rising economic powers — the so-called BRICS nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — rank lower in the index than some poorer countries such as Uruguay and Panama. The report found, wealthy nations are in general better prepared for aging than poorer ones. Sweden, where the pension system is now 100 years old, makes the top of the list because of its social support, education and health coverage, followed by Norway, Germany, the Netherlands and Canada. The United States comes in eighth.

Pregame Outlook —

Cards work to put together complete game against DCG By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Friday night, Newton’s Cardinals face its third top-15 Class 3A football team this season. The Cardinals go west to take on Dallas Center-Grimes’ Mustangs in Class 3A, District 4 play. “It is time for us to play a complete game. I told the players, if we play a complete game, we’d be tough to handle,” said Ed Ergenbright, Cardinal head coach. “Last week against Grinnell, we played an outstanding first half, especially defensively, then we didn’t play that well in the second half.” Consistency in play is the focus for Newton on both sides of the football. The Cardinals’ head coach pointed out to beat teams like Grinnell, Boone, and now, Dallas CenterGrimes, “we have to play four quarters of consistent football. We’ve been hot or cold. When we’re hot, we’re pretty good, but when we go cold, we’re not very good.” The Mustangs are ranked 15th in Class 3A. Offensively, DCG is led by senior quarterback Andrew Kramer, who is a dual threat to throw the football and run it. Kramer is 64-of-112 passing for 715 yards with nine touchdown passes and five interceptions. He has rushed for 221 yards on 54 carries. Chaz Chambers is the top rusher for the Mustangs this season with 370 yards on 72 carries. Noah Weeks has 178 yards on 44 carries. Kramer’s top target has been Dakota Clausen, who has 18 receptions — four for touchdowns — for 304 yards. “Dallas Center-Grimes is much improved from a year ago. They are very

Service academy games will go on By The Associated Press U.S. military academy football teams will play this weekend, despite the government shutdown. A senior defense official said Wednesday the decision affects this weekend’s games only, and future games will be evaluated as events unfold. The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly so spoke on condition of anonymity. Navy later confirmed its home game against Air Force in Annapolis, Md., would be played as scheduled Saturday. The game is sold out and is the most notable one on the Midshipmen’s home schedule. The Army-Navy game at the end of the season is played at a neutral site. The Navy-AFA game and Army’s game at Boston College were in jeopardy after the Defense Department temporarily suspended sports competition at the service academies as a result of the budget impasse in Congress. Email messages left with spokesmen for Army and Air Force were not immediately returned.

Mini cheerleaders kicking it Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Mini cheerleaders performed before a home crowd last Friday between the Newton freshman and varsity football games at H.A. Lynn Stadium. More than 90 youngsters from grades kindergarten through sixth particiapated in the Newton Senior High cheerleading clinic Sept. 21, then performed at the games. Each age group learned a cheer and a dance to perform in front of the crowd, and were led by the NHS cheer squad.

athletic and play very well defensively. They held Grinnell to 14 points, and came back from a 14-0 deficit to win 21-14,” Ergenbright said. “We’re going to have to play well.” Ergenbright said the Mustangs run the football well out of a spread offense. He said everything goes through Kramer. Ergenbright said the Cardinals continue to work on the running game — using the quickness of running backs Deonne Harris, J.T. Thongvanh,

Tristan Peters and Joseph Banfield along with quarterback Tyler Wood to get to the edge on teams. Newton had 890 yards on 219 carries, which is just over four yards a carry as a team. Harris leads the rushing game with 249 yards on 40 carries. Wood is a dual threat as quarterback, rushing for 208 yards and going 49-of-84 passing for 684 yards. “Grinnell did not do anything different defensively in the second half against us. The film bears that out. We

Hawk girls run third at Knoxville; nine area runners earn medals By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor KNOXVILLE — Mixing it up on the cross country course with larger school competition, Lynnville-Sully’s girls continue to land in the top three team places. The Hawk girls placed third at Tuesday’s Knoxville Invitational. Pella, a Class 3A school, won both the girls’ and boys’ team titles. Another 3A school, Oskaloosa, took second in both the varsity races. Lynnville-Sully, one of two Class 1A teams competing in the girls’ varsity race, scored 89 points for third. Pella was first with 28 points. Two area Class 2A girls’ teams — Prairie City-Monroe and Pella Christian — finished seventh and eighth, respectively. On the boys’ side, Pella Christian was sixth, and Lynnville-Sully placed eighth. PCM’s boys were 12th. “We, again, faced mostly big school competition on a course that has some challenging hills,” said Darin Arkema, Lynnville-

Sully head coach. “With our homecoming week taking place and all of the activities that are going on, I was happy that our meet was early in the week and kids weren’t too distracted.” Arkema said the Hawk varsity girls had another strong finish against the level of competition they need to be going against entering October and preparing for the conference and state qualifying meets. The varsity boys got a good lesson on why all seven guys who start the race make an impact on the team score and not just the first five across the finish line, he said. “Our guys finished in a threeway tie for eighth but our sixth runner was ahead of the other two teams. Eighth out of fourteen sounds a whole lot better than tenth and only five points out of seventh,” Arkema said. Nine area runners earned medal in the varsity races. RUNNERS See Page 2B

just didn’t execute as well on offense. We score on three successive series then go four or five possessions without a first down against the same defense,” Ergenbright said. “The plays were there just like they were in the first half. “Defensively, we have to make the plays. We missed tackles allowing them to have big plays.” Newton is 2-3 overall. The Cardinals are 1-2 in district play. Dallas Center-Grimes is 2-0 in district play and 4-1 overall.

Former players sue NCAA INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two more former college football players have filed a lawsuit against the NCAA stemming from concussions and brain injuries. John DuRocher, a quarterback at Washington and Oregon, and Darin Harris, a safety at Washington, are seeking more than $5 million in damages. Both say they sustained repeated head injuries, despite promises that they would be competing in a protected college environment. The class-action suit was filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court of Southern Indiana. Helmet-manufacturer Riddell and its parent company, Easton-Bell Sports, are also named in the complaint.

Runners: Hawks have four girls medal; Mustangs continue to make strides Continued from Page 1B Lynnville-Sully’s girls placed four in the top 20, claiming medals. Alexa Vander Leest led the way, running the 4K in 17 minutes, 27 seconds for sixth. Cori Rice placed 16th in 18:19, folVander Leest lowed by Karli Roozeboom in 18th in 18:35, and Tara Vos in 20th at 18:46. Elizabeth Van Manen and Line Ascanius each finished the race in 20 minutes to take 34th and 35th, respectively. Kasiah Ehresman was 44th in 21:07. PCM’s Rachel Stafford earned the 14th-place medal in 18:11, and teammate Rachel Peter was 17th in 18:31. Kayla Schakel placed 49th in 21:27. Shelby Palm finished in 55th in 22:34, and Amber Beener was 70th in 25:13. “Kayla, Shelby, and Amber Beener all improved by over a minute compared to last week in Monroe,” said Eric Karr, PCM head coach. Pella Christian’s girls were paced by Chloe Dembski, who placed 31st in 19:37. Morgan Anderson was 37th in 20:12, followed by Andrea Carballo in 43rd at 20:53, Darmaris Worthington in 47th at 21:21, Abby Van Soelen in 52nd at 21:58, and Marina Shannon in 54th at 22:22. Pella Christian’s Jacob Lensing claimed the 10th-place medal in the varsity boys’ race. He ran the 5K course in 18:17. Grant Dunsbergen was 26th in 12:44, Jonathan Beltman placed 36th

in 19:55, Scott Haveman was 46th in 20:49, and Samuel Dahm finished 52nd in 21:07. “This was against tough competition. We had very good places,” said Jocelyn Meinders, Pella Christian head coach. “I was very impressed with our athletes’ performances on the hills. Everyone looked very strong. We also had very solid finishes.” Canyon Kuhlmann, Lynnville-Sully, earned a medal for 14th, running the race in 18:43. Talon Woods was 53rd in 21:08, followed by Jake Brand in 55th at 21:13, Ben Trettin in 58th at 21:29, and Luke Jones in 67th at 22:00. Nic Lirio placed 70th in 22:21, and Jim Trettin was 73rd in 22:31. PCM’s Mustang boys were led by Matt Chizek, taking 18th in 19:08.

Mark Bruxvoort finished 83rd in 24:07, ConChizek nor Brey was 91st in 25:13, and Lucas Rains was 93rd in 28:01. “The level of competition was intense. We faced some really big schools and some really fast runners,” Karr said about the PCM teams. “I think we competed well on a tough course and the times showed. I keep reminding my runners to compete for place finishes, not time. The place you finish gets you to state, not your time. With one month from the state meet, it’s time to turn it up at practice for a couple of weeks. Ef-

fort and mental toughness are going to have to be the top priority at practices.” Here are the junior varsity results for two of the area teams: Pella Christian: girls-55.

Red Wings open season with win over Sabres Associated Press DETROIT (AP) — Pavel Datsyuk and Mikael Samuelsson scored 36 seconds apart midway through the first period and the Detroit Red Wings held on to beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 Wednesday night in the season-opener for both teams. Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard turned the puck over, allowing Zemgus Girgensons to score in his NHL debut with 7:24 left in the game. Howard tried to clear the Howard puck from behind his net, but it hit Buffalo’s Brian Flynn and popped over the net to set up Girgensons’ backhander that pulled the Sabres within a goal. Howard made 19 saves in Detroit’s debut in the Eastern Conference, playing an Atlantic Division game against the young Sabres. Buffalo had a two-man power play for 1:31 early in the first period and for 51 seconds late in the second, but couldn’t take advantage. In between

Cobb, Rays roll 4-0 over Indians in AL wild card CLEVELAND (AP) — They shut off the lights, cranked up the music and turned their clubhouse into a nightclub. As Pitbull’s “Don’t Stop The Party” boomed off walls covered by plastic sheets, the Tampa Bay Rays sprayed each other with Silly String and emptied bottles of champagne as quickly as they could open them. This road trip isn’t ending anytime soon. “Nobody wants to go home,” pitcher Alex Cobb said. Next stop: Boston. Dodging trouble for nearly seven innings, Cobb and the Rays pitched their way to another must-have win on the road, beating the Cleveland Indians 4-0 Wednesday night in the AL wild-card game. Cobb, who missed a chunk of the regular season after he was hit in the head by a line drive, quieted a thundering Cleveland crowd and ended the Indians’ unexpected season just one game into October. Delmon Young homered in the third inning off Cobb rookie Danny Salazar as the Rays, playing in their third city over four days, advanced to face the AL East champion Red Sox in the best-of-five division series starting Friday.

those 5-on-3 opportunities, the Sabres were held scoreless on three power plays. Ryan Miller gave up goals on the fifth and sixth shots he faced and finished with 32 saves. Maple Leafs 3, Flyers 1 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dave Bolland scored twice and Phil Kessel added a goal to lead Toronto over Philadelphia. The Maple Leafs, off to a 2-0 start, spoiled Philadelphia’s season opener one night after ruining Montreal’s. Jonathan Bernier stopped 31 shots for the Maple Leafs. Toronto acquired Bolland and Bernier in the offseason to bolster their bid to get out of the first round and make a run in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Kessel, on his 26th birthday, scored one day after he signed a $64 million, eight-year extension. Brayden Schenn had the lone goal for the host Flyers. Bolland scored the go-ahead goal from the slot early in the third period. It was his first goal since the Game 6 clincher for the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals. He sealed this win with a power-play goal with 22.5 seconds left.

The Flyers wasted a fantastic chance to go ahead when Wayne Simmonds was easily stopped on a penalty shot by Bernier with 3.1 seconds left in the second period. Avalanche 6, Ducks 1 DENVER (AP) — Semyon Varlamov was sharp in making 35 saves, and Jamie McGinn scored two goals, leading Colorado over Anaheim in Patrick Roy’s successful coaching debut with the Avalanche. Ryan O’Reilly, John Mitchell, Matt Duchene and Steve Downie added goals for the Avalanche, who improved to 19-8-7 on opening night. Top pick Nathan MacKinnon set up both of McGinn’s goals with no-look passes. Alex Tanguay, back with Colorado for the first time since the 2005-06 season, had three assists. Varlamov stuffed the Ducks all evening but lost his bid for a shutout in the closing seconds when Jakob Silfverberg slipped a shot by him. Viktor Fasth struggled for Anaheim, allowing three goals in the second period. Things got heated after the final horn, with some players getting into a skirmish near the benches. Even Roy got into the act as he jawed from behind the glass.

Wimberly juices ISU running game AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State’s running back-bycommittee experiment looks to be over. The Cyclones have found their man. Junior Aaron Wimberly established himself as the go-to back with a breakout performance in Iowa State’s 38-21 victory at Tulsa last week. Carrying 19 times for 137 yards — an impressive 7.2yard average — the transfer from Iowa Western Community College gave the running game some much-needed juice as the CyWimberly clones (1-2) prepare for Thursday night’s visit from Texas (2-2). “We certainly have packages that will work that will involve other backs,” coach Paul Rhoads said Monday. “But yeah, he’s our guy.” Wimberly shared time with James White and Shontrelle Johnson in Iowa State’s first two games and was given just 10 carries. Iowa State averaged only 3.3 yards per carry in those contests and managed just 59 yards on the ground in a 27-21 loss to Iowa. Rhoads decided in the days leading up to the Tulsa game to make Wimberly the primary ball carrier. The 5-foot-9, 173-pounder promptly produced the first 100yard rushing game by an Iowa State tailback since Johnson did it in the 2012 season opener. Wimberly’s performance, which included a 35-yard run and a 31-yard pass reception, wasn’t lost on Texas coach Mack Brown. “In our league right now, speed is everything and he’s just got tremendous speed,” Brown said. “Every time he touches the ball, he’s got a chance to score. He makes them a different team at tailback.”

Friday, October 4, 2013

It’s been estimated that watching television commercials can triple a person’s desire for more possessions. As the moon disappears and renews itself in the highly aesthetic sign of Libra, many will have the opposite desire: to start new in creating a beautiful environment by getting rid of unnecessary things that clutter it up. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 4). Your needs are many, and you don’t expect one person to fulfill all of them. That’s why the broadening of your social, professional and spiritual life that happens between now and the end of the year will serve you well. January shows you helping a friend. February brings an improved domestic environment. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 2, 22, 24 and 12. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are unusually powerful today. Not only can you visualize what needs to be done, but you also can see

yet you’ll still do what’s right. You believe in karma, and you also believe as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus stated, that a man’s character is his fate.

you are dancing on the fine line between diplomacy and lying. Your social acuity allows you to know the difference. As for yourself, you’d rather just tell the truth.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Is it nobler to get things done or leave things undone? That is the philosophical question of the day. When answered correctly, life suddenly becomes much easier.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will avoid trouble by correctly judging a person’s nature. The honest have innocent eyes. The guilty seem to be repenting for sins that haven’t been committed yet.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Out with the old, and plant a few seeds for the new. If you can’t manage to get rid of all the old, don’t worry. As it is in most kinds of planting, the rotten past provides nutrient-rich soil.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Social opinion matters to you, but your purpose goes way beyond dressing well and looking good. As you pursue what really matters, appearances begin to mean less to you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You’ve shielded your mind from certain information, appropriately so. But now you want to see things as they really are. You’ll take the blinders off and accept this as your new starting place.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re coming into your own at work. The results you’re getting will turn a few heads and net you more eyeball time than some of your peers. Take it in stride so as not to arouse jealousies.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are times when it’s better to accomplish something without worrying about who gets the credit, but this is not one of them. It’s essential to your future that you publicly own what you do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one is looking, and

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It seems that some around

how to do it. Write your plans down, as they will come in a rush of divine inspiration that may be hard to recapture later. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Approval-seeking is the death of charisma. Figure out what you want out of a situation other than the acceptance of others, and focus there. That’s the only way to win it now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). A relationship will improve through communication that connects you. But if you don’t know what to say, trust that you can communicate just by being together. Words come and go. Silence is eternal.
