Its marching time for the Waukee Marching Invitational in the evening has not yet been announced. Daily News Editor Bob Eschliman may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 423, or at

The Newton Senior High School marching band will conclude one of its most successful seasons ever next weekend at State Marching Band Competition and the Waukee Marching Invitational, both to be held at Waukee Stadium. “The kids continue to put forth a good effort every rehearsal and we’re hoping for good weather and great performances to finish out the year,” second-year director Jim Beerends said. The Cardinal Regiment will perform Saturday at the prestigious ValleyFest/Showdown event at Valley Stadium in West Des Moines. The band performs at

1:30 p.m. as part of ValleyFest XXXIV. They return to the field at 7:15 p.m. to perform in Showdown XXXIV. The band is coming off a fifth-place finish in its class — 10th place overall — at Urbandale last weekend. It opened competition season Sept. 28 with an impressive showing in Pella. “We really have had some exciting moments this year including our second place finish at Pella the weekend of the 28th,” Beerends said. “According to the kids, that is the highest they have ever placed at that festival.” Typically, the Cardinal Regiment makes a return trip to Pella to complete its marching competition season.

Craig Thorson is unique in that he has two military families. The first military family he belongs to was started by his father, who is a U.S. Navy World War II veteran and continued by his son who currently serves in the Navy. His other family was the airmen who served at the Des Moines Air National Guard Base. “That unit was different than active duty; it’s like a big family. People don’t come and go. They stay there,” Craig said. “Unlike the Air Force, where everybody plays musical chairs every three years where you get a new assignment and everybody leaves and you never really have a chance to have longterm relationships. Ev-

erybody stays for their 20-year retirement. I got four or five guys I flew with whose sons became pilots.” When the Des Moines Air National Guard Base announced it was discontinuing the F-16 program, it hit Craig hard. “That was a sad day, I didn’t really expect that it would ever happen,” Craig said. “With the budget cuts and the economy the way it is, it didn’t come as a to-

tal shock, but it’s pretty sad.” What made the departure of the F-16s even more significant for Craig was that he was one of the few Newton natives to actually fly the F-16s. “I’ve done flybys for the Fourth of July Parade, (when they added) the new part of the airport at the dedication and I flew over a football game when Newton was in the finals,” Craig said. Craig absolutely loved flying and serving his country, which he did for a 38 combined years in the Iowa Air National Guard and the U.S. Air Force, and he described what flying a fighter jet was like. “It’s not anything at all like the airlines where you go from point A to point B,” Craig said. “It’s a totally awesome expe-

rience. In the F-16, they used to call it the ‘Magic Carpet Ride,’ because the canopy rails are very low and you have that bubble canopy, you feel like you’re sitting out on the end of a pencil.” Craig said while piloting the F-16s, you couldn’t see much due to the seat being titled back and the control stick not being in the traditional

position between your legs, but on an adjacent console. “You can’t see and you feel like you’re on a magic carpet. That thing had so much power,” he said. While working at the base, he flew multiple planes and took part in a number of missions. THORSON See Page 5A

Auditions next week for NCT’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ Auditions for the Newton Community Theatre’s production of “A Christmas Carol” — directed by Sue Beukema and Pam Ratliff — will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. Twenty-seven speaking parts are available plus extras (age 3 and older). The production is slated for Dec. 6-8 and 12-14. Adapted by Michael Young, the refreshing version of Charles Dickens’s classic Christmas tale is told from a

new perspective — a young boy’s grandfather. Thomas enjoys spending time at his grandfather’s prominent London business but has trouble understanding why his grandfather would give his hard-earned money to the poor. This gives Grandfather the perfect opportunity to tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge as he recalls it, and a traditional retelling of “A Christmas Carol” comes to life as a play-within-a-play. Read more in today’s paper.

All In

Communism works — in the 24th century Karl Marx was a genius. Most people that know my political leanings would find the former sentence very uncharacteristic. Anyone who knows how serious I am about “Star Trek” shouldn’t be surprised. By Dave Hon “Star Trek” as a universe Daily News Staff Writer is based in utopia. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” No one is judged for doing a certain job, because that’s the job they are suited for. Everyone is provided for. From a philosophical standpoint, I have a huge problem with the Affordable Care Act (Let’s stop calling it ObamaCare. It’s only feeding our President’s already large ego). We live in a society where individuals don’t live up to their potential.  We all know family members or friends who have certain abilities they don’t utilize. In the U.S., just because someone has a strength in something — say in mathematics — that doesn’t mean they have to go into mathematics. They aren’t compelled to work into their strengths, but instead their interests. I love “Star Trek,” but I realize it’s a fantasy word. A fantasy world I wouldn’t mind living in, but it’s still make-believe.  Everyone is given as much responsibility as they can handle, but they are all given as much resources. The problem with this, though, is that in the 21st century, we don’t have unlimited resources. Sure, I could drone on and on about CEOs who make millions

of dollars in bonuses, but that’s not my point. My point is, there is only so much silver in the world. (Silver is a major component in technology.) Without technology, a society can’t really advance. You want Third World countries to get it together? Give every child access to the Internet and see how quickly we advance as a human race. Food, water, shelter, clothing; all of these items are limited. “Star Trek” is a universe with unlimited energy and where they can turn energy into matter. We, as a species, aren’t ready for that. There are people in our world who choose not to contribute to society because they can. I’m not saying we shouldn’t feed or clothe these people (nor am I saying all the people we feed and clothe choose to be that way). I’m saying every person without a purpose is a person we have failed. Thus, we must give these people a purpose, before we give them utopia. ACA is a step toward utopia. Let’s face it, there are people in this country, on this world, who work only because they have to. I write — not only this column, but for a newspaper in general — because I enjoy it.  My salary, my benefits — all of the “stuff ” I’m given in return for my labor — I see as a resource to continue my labor. Sure, I use my salary to have fun and entertain myself, but that entertainment is really just so I keep my sanity so I can keep doing my job. I’m lucky. I do what I love to do. I’ve been writing for newspapers since I was 15 years old. Some people aren’t so lucky. I’d rather give people the joy that I get from writing this column than healthcare or food because the fact is, I might get hit by a bus and die on impact tomorrow. All the food and the health care in the world won’t help me there.

Common Sense

Let’s thank good ol’ Benjamin Franklin, too! I’m pretty sure you’ve noticed by now that I end each and every installment of Common Sense with the same phrase. If you haven’t, I encourage you to check it out at the end of this week’s installment. I’ve always felt the message it conveyed was one of importance to us all: By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor without teachers who educate us, and those to volunteer to protect our nation and our families at night, we’d be in pretty bad shape. But honestly — and particularly this week — there’s someone else we should be thanking. Were it not for Benjamin Franklin — yes, the guy on the $100 bill — you probably wouldn’t be reading this issue of the Daily News, much less my blatherings. Franklin, the guy who developed the first public library, who gave us the U.S. Postal Service, who invented the lightning rod and bifocal glasses, and who concocted the idea of daylightsaving time, was most proud of his profession as a printer. It was a career he began at the age of 12, when he was indentured to his older brother, James, for what was to be a nine-year apprenticeship. Young Benjamin soon proved to be quite adept at his new trade, and was soon making quite a name for himself — and by extension, his brother — in Boston. And when James began publishing The New England Courant, Benjamin was both the typesetter and the newsboy, selling copies on the street corner. But more than anything, Benjamin wanted to write for his brother’s newspaper. Newspapers of the day were little more than the equivalent of the trashy tabloids you see at supermarkets today. They contained very little real news with a whole lot of downright salacious lies about prominent people throughout. The Courant was different. It was timely. It was engaging. It even made people think about the world around them. And, with commentaries from members of the Hell-Fire Club, of which James was a leading member, there was a lot worth reading. It was truly the first must-have newspaper in Colonial America. That might have had something to

do with Benjamin’s desire to be contributing. But James would have nothing of it, particularly from someone as young as his brother. So, Benjamin found another way to get his thoughts printed in The Courant. He wrote letters to the editor, not as himself, but rather as the “widow of a country minister” named Silence Dogood. Over the course of six months, he penned 14 letters under Silence’s name, which were subsequently published in The Courant. The use of noms de plum was commonplace at the time, so it was readily evident that Silence was not the “country widow” she was portrayed to be. But James and the Hell-Fire Club never caught on that Benjamin was writing the letters. So, eventually, he told his brother what he had been doing. It resulted in a bitter squabble over the next few months that culminated with Benjamin running away from James and The Courant. He set off for Philadelphia, the largest city in the colonies, to make a new life for himself. He actually bounced around for a while, eventually leaving the colonies altogether to seek out a job in his trade in London. But, he eventually returned to Philadelphia, and at the ripe old age of 23, he purchased one of the city’s newspapers, Universal Instructor in all Arts and Sciences, and Pennsylvania Gazette, which he quickly shortened to The Pennsylvania Gazette. The Gazette was much like The Courant, but boasted a number of “innovations” — when wasn’t Ben Franklin shaking things up? — such as paid advertisements and a reduced newsstand price meant to make the publication open to a wider audience. His goal was to reach as many people as possible, which was an entirely new concept for newspaper publishers of the day. It was these innovations, as well as his desire to ensure every American was well-educated, that truly makes Benjamin Franklin the father of the American newspaper. Even if he really isn’t recognized with the distinction. So, during this very important week — National Newspaper Week — I hope you all are able to carve out a few moments to be thankful for his contributions to yet another aspect of your daily lives. ••• If you’re reading this, thank a teacher.

The Reading Link

Success, joy come from expressing anger appropriately By Christine Pauley Reading Specialist Control issues pop up whenever we deal with people, including ourselves. Humans need to control for various reasons and in relationships it is destructive. Everyone needs appropriate attention and when we don’t get it things happen. Sometimes we seek power or revenge or we may feel so inadequate that we strive to control the situation in obvious or hidden ways. In truth people often set up control issues and we react by feeling guilty and giving in; someone forgets to be the adult in the situation. Not enabling people to gain unhealthy control means not getting side-tracked and using techniques to keep focused. Nagging means someone else is in control. One way to help children learn to be responsible for their own choice is to start out by giving them two good choices even as young as six months. They can choose between toy one and toy two. Recognizing when someone seeks to control us and not letting it happen is important in all relationships. Adults don’t seek to control others. Too often we bite into the anger of others. Lifelong success and joy is

learning to express our anger appropriately without hurting our self or others. Giving children as much positive control as possible and stating the consequences of an act clearly solves many problems. Detractions from the issue are not understanding what we did wrong, the consequences of our misdeed and a lack of follow through. People speed excessively because they don’t get caught often enough. They know they are wrong and they know the consequences. One error in discipline that we often make is creating a requirement that wipes out three-fourths of the work done if they fail late in the game. Discipline that fits the error sets the boundaries so the child knows what he should do. Punishment simply relieves parents’ frustration, but doesn’t always help the child learn how to correct the wrong behavior. A journey of literacy builds relationships and knowledge. A guilty conscience means you feel lousy inside, but it doesn’t always change behavior. Children are no different than adults. They act well one day and lousy the next. Trust cannot develop properly if the child is seen as too, too good or too, too bad. Do you still throw a temper tan-

trum? At age 2, 5 or 6 tantrums may be normal, and once again at ages 1315. Hopefully, we stop throwing tantrums after that age even when there seems to be a great need — tantrums admit we have no control. Pouting is the other side of tantrums. Control issues may be enhanced by over-reacting or walking away from the person which means they are in charge. Throwing up red flags such as “or else” diminishes the lesson.    Some people learn to control through crazy behavior even vomiting or illness and these controls are harder to detect. Attachments to others are essential for healthy development. Some signs of a lack of attachment are poor eye contact, a lack of trust, pushing to the outmost limits, even overeating and many others.   Conscious attachment to a person is necessary and healthy. At ages 3-5 children have an innate fear that they will lose their parent or parents. Guilt appears as children grow, at first though they only do the right thing if an adult is around and this stage lasts until about eight.  By age 9 they can choose to do right when an adult is not around. It is important to not set up a child to lie or to “people please.” Lasting values come from inside and are expressed in

outward ways. I must have needed a lesson once about that age as granddad asked what I would do if I was alone with a pile of a thousand pennies. I don’t remember my answer, but I remember feeling proud when Granddad said, “You are old enough and I could leave the room with those pennies and trust you wouldn’t take even one.” Healthy attachment allows us to have less need for control. A child who goes to everyone equally says no one is special. Babies don’t love; they react. At first, love needs practice and our response sets the scene. In adoption, telling a child that birth parents gave them away because they loved them so much lets them assume that if you love them you will give them away.  Like adults, children often talk about doing something and then not doing it or act like a clown because they feel insecure and want to hide their feelings. Remember you deserve help if you feel uncontrollable rage, so don’t ignore the signs.  When you seek and apply new insight you can then create a conducive learning environment for your child and all your relationships profit. Until next week — Christine Pauley

Pageants Cont. from Page 1A “Over 100 young ladies from across the state will vie for the coveted titles of Miss Iowa USA 2014 and Miss Iowa Teen USA 2014,” Watkins said. “Each contestant will compete in three equally scored areas of competition including interview, swimwear, and evening gown. “We would encourage local residents to come and check out this exciting event that is happening in their back yards,” she continued. “Newtonians can take pride in watching the National Miss USA telecast and NBC and knowing that their state representative was crowned in their hometown.” The emcee for this year’s show will be Future Productions Co-Director Denise Wallace. Future is also the official state pageant producer for the Miss Universe Organization. Watkins wouldn’t reveal this year’s judging panel, however, she did give slight hints about them. “The six judges consist of key players in the business and entertainment industries,” Watkins said. “On this year’s panel, we have judges coming all the way from Nevada, Michigan, Minnesota and

South Dakota.” Watkins also explained what makes judging a pageant so unique. “Pageantry is subjective. The ladies are not competing in measurable tasks like how fast they run or how high they jump,” she said. “When you get six different people’s opinions on who they each believe to be the most beautiful and capable of representing an international brand, it is anyone’s game. There are no favorites. We wish all of the contestants the best of luck.” In addition to benefiting the local economy, Watkins spoke about how beneficial these competitions are to charities as well as the contestants. “We look forward to returning to Newton each year as local dignitaries and many movers and shakers in your community have been such supporters of this event that recognizes young women in your state,” she said. This year, over 1.3 million dollars in scholarships will be available at the pageant.” “Most importantly, the new Miss Iowa USA 2014 amd Miss Iowa Teen USA 2014 will forge alliances with charitable organizations and causes around the state to bring awareness,” she continued. “Miss Iowa USA 2014 will

advance to the nationally televised Miss USA pageant live on NBC television next year. If she wins that, she will compete in front of a worldwide television audience of over 1 billion people to become the next Miss Universe.” Watkins, NCVB, and the whole team at Future Productions highly recommend attending this year’s shows. “It’s a live show so anything can happen,” Watkins said. “We are looking forward to the crowning of two deserving young women who’s lives will be forever changed, but even more so we are thrilled to provide all of the contestants the opportunity to celebrate one another’s achievements and be each other’s biggest cheerleaders this weekend. “ “This is an event about women supporting other women,” she continued. “One thing in particular that is exciting is that the newly crowned Miss Iowa USA will head off to the Bahamas to represent the state and serve as a guest of the Atlantis Paradise Island for a celebrity appearance in November.” Staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@

Establishment GOPers assail tea party on shutdown DES MOINES (AP) — From county chairmen to national party luminaries, veteran Republicans across the country are accusing tea party lawmakers of staining the GOP with their refusal to bend in the budget impasse in Washington. The Republican establishment also is signaling a willingness to strike back at the tea party in next fall’s elections. “It’s time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process,” former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu argues, faulting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and

tea party Republicans in the House as much as President Barack Obama for taking an uncompromising stance. Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is just as pointed, saying this about the tea partyfueled refusal to support spending measures that include money for Obama’s health care law: “It never had a chance.” The anger emanating from Republicans like Sununu and Barbour comes just three years after the GOP embraced the insurgent political group and rode its wave

of new energy to return to power in the House. Now, they’re lashing out with polls showing Republicans bearing most of the blame for the federal shutdown, which entered its 11th day Friday. In some places, they’re laying the groundwork to take action against the tea party in the 2014 congressional elections. Iowa Republicans are recruiting a pro-business Republican to challenge six-term conservative Rep. Steve King, a leader in the push to defund the health care law.

Nice young men won’t get far in life without table manners DEAR ABBY: I have acquired two teenage stepsons. They are good young men, mature, responsible, active in community service and good in school and sports. My challenge is their table manners. They were never taught any! They use their utensils like shop tools, lifting food using fork and knife together to transfer huge bites from plate to mouth. They use a bread knife to cut a pancake as if it were a tough steak. They slouch over the table to get their faces as near the plate as possible, while leaning on the table with one or both elbows. They don’t know where to place cutlery when setting the table, and have their napkins in their lap only if a restaurant server discreetly places it there. Their mother shows no concern about their uncouth manners. I’m worried that when they eventually go out into the world, they’ll be perceived as having no class when they are actually nice young men. Their ignorance of table manners could cost them relationships, jobs and promotions. What to do? — SAN ANTONIO STEPDAD DEAR STEPDAD: Your wife may have felt she was teaching her sons more important lessons than table manners; things like character and responsibility. However, you have a point. People DO make negative judgments about people who have poor table manners — and it could be detrimental to them in the future. That’s why you should discuss this with their mother, if you haven’t already, and enlist her help in talking to the boys in a nonconfrontational way and explaining your concern. In the interest of your relationship with them, this must not seem like you are critical of them, nor should it turn into an adversarial situation or it could have a negative impact on your marriage. If it is to succeed, there must be cooperation from everyone. DEAR ABBY: I am almost 30, and

when we have family get-togethers several times a year, it seems like they make a point to leave me out of pictures. My mom and sister lost quite a bit of weight recently, and my brothers and cousin are attractive people. It seems like they’re trying to keep the “fat one” out of the photo, and it hurts my feelings. Recently, a cousin came into town and made copies of two excellent pictures of my mom and sister and posted them online. Again, I was not included. What should I do? I am depressive anyway, and these obvious oversights are upsetting me. — LEFT OUT IN TENNESSEE DEAR LEFT OUT: Talk with your mother and sister to confirm if what you suspect is happening is true. It’s possible your mother and sister are so proud of their weight loss they want to show it off. (There are ways to pose family members in photographs so their weight isn’t apparent.) As to the visiting cousin, there may be such a marked change in their appearance that he/she thought it was worth posting on the Internet. A problem with depression is that quietly brooding solves nothing, and it often causes people to overeat. Because your depression is chronic, please consider discussing it with your health care provider because interventions are available.

Corn harvest above expectations due to weather rain combined with cooler temperatures at the time corn pollinated, a welcome sight after last year’s dismal harvest due to the drought withering corn and soybean fields and burning up pastures. Record harvests are likely this year in many states, including Alabama, Georgia, Indiana and Ohio. All that corn will help refill bins that had been emptied after last year’s drought-reduced harvest of 10.7 billion bushels, the lowest since 2006, said Chad Hart, an agriculture economist with Iowa State University. “We now know how good it can get and how bad it can get in just two years,” said Jerry Gulke, who farms near Rockford, Ill., and runs a farm management and market advisory business based in Chicago. Gulke says

butes it to a combination of a cool summer and significantly more rainfall than average. It’s a similar story for southern Illinois farmer Steven Niedbalski, 36, who works with his parents and a brother. Last year, he cut down dying corn stalks to feed cattle because there was nothing to harvest; the best field delivered 40 bushels an acre. This year, he’s seeing 150 to 170 bushels an acre on his farm near Nashville, Ill. He chalks it up to new hybrids withstanding the dry weather better than expected and cooler weather during pollination helping fill the ears with kernels. But in the nation’s leading corn-producing state, Iowa farmers are seeing more inconsistent results because of

spring’s rain-delayed planting followed by a dry summer. Wayne Humphries, who raises hogs and grows corn and soybeans on about 1,000 acres 145 miles southeast of Des Moines, said some fields are producing as much as 200 bushels an acre while others with soil types that couldn’t hold moisture are at half that. “We’ve only had less than an inch of rain in the last two months. That wasn’t conducive to finishing our crop,” Humphries, of Columbus Junction, said. Just 60 miles to the northeast, farmers on both sides of the Mississippi River around Davenport, Iowa, and Moline, Ill., are reporting eye-popping results — as many as 260 bushels an acre.

this harvest, when finished, will be the best he’s ever had: More than 200 bushels per acre, twice last year’s result. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has estimated the 2013 corn harvest at 13.8 billion bushels, beating the 2009 record of 13.1 billion bushels. Updated harvest estimates were to be released Friday, but the partial federal government shutdown has caused the USDA to suspend reports. In northern Alabama, Jeff Webster, 50, farms 1,700 acres with a cousin. Those fields are producing between 160 and 200 bushels per acre, a significant improvement over the average of 130 to 140 bushels. “It’s an exceptional crop for most people,” said Webster, a farmer for 30 years.

DES MOINES (AP) — Harvest is in full swing across the country, and farmers in many states are surprised at the abundance of corn they’re getting from their fields. Dairy farmer Ben Steffen, who also grows corn, soybeans and wheat on 1,900 acres near the southeastern Nebraska town of Humboldt, said his first corn field brought in 168 bushels an acre, above the average of 140. “I’m surprised that what I’m hearing from my neighbors there are some really outstanding yields,” he said. “I don’t know if I would consider it a record crop at this point, but the numbers I’m hearing are going to be right up there.” The best crops in the U.S. are in areas that received adequate

By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer At the end of each semester, Berg Middle School hosts an academic excellence celebration that pits the seventh graders against the eighth graders and awards the classes with multiple trophies. In order to build more hype for those events, this year they launched monthly student award assemblies. Held the first week of each month, both grades hold their assemblies in Berg’s big and small gyms, and students can receive one of several designations. The eighth graders have students of the month for each homeroom, and one is selected from all of those as the overall student of the month. Anna Forsyth was selected for October and was very proud to receive the first student of the month award at BMS. She spoke on what she thought helped her achieve the distinction. “I thought I did good

Kids Say... The Newton Daily News recently visited Berg Middle School and asked the following question:

How would you solve the current government shutdown? “First, I would stop buying so much from China, most stuff says ‘Made in China’ and costs millions and billions of dollars to ship over here.” John Noble Newton

“I would interview people from Congress to see what would be a solution works with them.”

“Tell everybody to work together.”

The Jasper County Veterans Memorial Commission will be constructing two new veterans’ memorials which will be placed on the courthouse lawn. The first will serve as a memorial to all Jasper County vets and will be placed on the east side of the courthouse. It will be a ten ton stone on a 15x15 pedestal and will be painted with military themed murals. The second memorial will be located on the south side of the courthouse next to the current veteran’s memorial. It will hold over 350 bricks engraved with names in honor or memory of local veterans. Any Jasper County veteran who lived in the county when they joined, lives in the county currently, or is now serving active duty is eligible to have their name placed on a brick. A copy of your DD214 or honorable discharge papers will be required along with your application. The bricks will cost $100.00 each. The bricks will hold three lines with 15 letters/spaces on each line. (Inclusion in this project does not automatically qualify participants as veterans as defined under Iowa Code chapter 35)

Applications will be accepted until 4pm on November 8th, 2013. Due to the logistics of the process, no applications will be accepted after that. We plan to unveil the new monuments on July 4th, 2014.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News All business in the water is NCMP’s Hannah Scotton, who broke her own school record in the 100-meter butterfly during Thursday’s home swim meet against Boone. The NCMP Aquagirls dominated the meet, winning every race in the varsity and junior varsity competition.

Aquagirls dominate on Senior Night at the Y Scotton tags new NCMP butterfly record By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Hannah Scotton stole a little of the thunder from NCMP’s seniors Thursday on the Aquagirls’ Senior Night at the Newton YMCA. Her senior teammates will give her that anytime. In the first race off the break when the team honored its seniors and their parents, Scotton, a junior, went to work in the pool. She shaved almost two seconds off her own NCMP record, winning the 100-meter butterfly in 1 minute, 6.18 seconds. Scotton’s mark of 1:08.17 was set in 2012. “I just felt from the beginning tonight that I had it in me. I knew I had to take it out strong and keep pushing to the end,” Scotton said following the meet. “I was just pushing to see what came out tonight. I ended up almost two seconds faster. It felt great.” The Aquagirls overwhelmed visiting Boone, outnumbering the Toreadors from the start. Boone only swam

in two junior varsity races. NCMP’s varsity remains undefeated, dominating Thursday’s meet with Boone, 130-39. The NCMP junior varsity won 137-5. The Aquagirls won all races in both divisions. “First, we honored our seniors and the Sam Clark family, which was great. This was a solid meet for us,” said Sarah Patterson, NCMP head coach. “We really enjoy swimming against Boone, which has a nice team. Our girls had fun time, swam relaxed and got the win.” Karen Clark, wife of the late Sam Clark, represented the family of two former Aquagirls. Patterson said the Clark family was recognized for donating funds to the team in Sam Clark’s memory. Sam Clark died in April 2012 from cancer. Seniors swimming their final home meet for the Aquagirls were Carly Colville, Cassi Fitzgerald, Emily Forsyth, Brooke Hamand, Hannah Marston, Grace Perrin, Paige Reed, Ellie Rethmeier, Kaitlyn Sorensen, Mad-

Tigers win, advance OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Justin Verlander ripped off his jersey and rubbed Torii Hunter’s bald head. The Tigers pulled on goggles and popped bubbly, then waited for their straggling slugger. At last, Miguel Cabrera walked through the door to chants of “Miggy! Miggy! Miggy!” Detroit’s two biggest stars, Verlander and Cabrera, teamed up Thursday night to send the Tigers back to the AL championship series with a 3-0 winner-takeall victory over the Oakland Athletics in their division series. With the season on the line once more in Oakland, Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem by carrying a no-hit bid into the seventh inning. With his body aching, Cabrera contributed all the offense needed in one sweet swing — a two-run homer — as the Tigers eliminated the A’s again. Anibal Sanchez will start Game 1 in Boston on Saturday. The Tigers went 4-3 against the Red Sox this year, but they have never faced each other in the postseason.

eline Wellik, Jandi Westendorf and Maria Carcaba. “It was sad, but fun,” said Wellik about her final swim at home, after being on the team for three years. “I really like the team. It’s the best part of the sport.” Westendorf said the night was bittersweet for her.

“I love swimming here. We’re going to enjoy the rest of our season. Whatever pool we’re swimming in, it doesn’t matter, we still bring it home,” Westendorf said. NCMP See Page 3B

Keep the prep in prep sports Prep sports is supposed to be about a few distinct things: participation, teamwork, comraderie, hustle, loyalty and respect just to name a few. But I saw something on Tuesday night that doesn’t lump in with any of those words, and I wasn’t particularly happy about it. I walked into the Saydel High School gym with about 20 minutes to spare before the Eagles took on the PCM Mustangs in a volleyball match. I sat down where I typically do to take some action photos, chatted up some parents and awaited the start of the match. With about two minutes

remaining on the gym’s clock, player introductions began. The Mustang girls were By Dustin Turner introDaily News duced just Sports Writer like any other gym would do, but the introduction for the Eagle girls was let’s just say a bit over the top. The lights were lowered. Music was pumped up. A spot-

light shone on the court, and the gym announcer proceeded to do his best Space Jam announcer impression. Far be it from me to criticize some high school kids trying to have a little fun before a sporting event, and this says absolutely nothing about the effort of the girls on the court, but it was way over the top. All those things I mentioned before about the core values of prep sports are what is right Turner See Page 2B

Lynnville-Sully girls win Montezuma title Colfax-Mingo, Pella Christian runners medal at meet By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Cardinals climbed back into the Iowa high school rankings this week. The Cardinals are No. 15 in Class 4A. They are set for another run next week, going to Oskaloosa Tuesday in Little Hawkeye Conference play, then to the Johnston Invitational next Saturday. Megan Pressgrove (11) sets the volleyball for a teammate during recent home action by the Cardinals.

CMB, Colfax-Mingo square off in triangular By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer BAXTER — Collins-Maxwell/ Baxter hosted a volleyball triangular on Thursday afternoon, playing two of its Heart of Iowa Conference rivals — Gilbert and Colfax-Mingo. The Raiders didn’t get quite what they wanted out of their home cooking, but they did come away with a straight-set victory over the Tigerhawks 21-12, 21-16. CMB began the game on a run, and although the Tigerhawks fought back, CMB took a 9-7 lead when C-M coach Brain Warrick took a timeout. Following the timeout, the Tigerhawks responded well, tying the set up at 10-10. A kill by junior Alex Hiavacek gave CMB a 1210 advantage, but a later spike by Jade Lewis tied the set up at 12. The Raiders started a run from there to close out the set. They rallied for nine consecutive points. Some of the key contributors to the rally were Payge Jurgens, who had two aces, and Abbie Haupert with two kills. A side out by C-M gave the Raiders a firstset win. Lewis opened the second set with a ferocious spike to give the Tigerhawks a 1-0 lead. CMB tied things up, but an ace by Anna Baldwin made it 2-1 C-M. Both teams Lewis traded points until C-M rallied to take an 8-5 lead, prompting CMB coach Scott Ranck to take a timeout. After the

break, CMB found its game, rallying back to pull even at eight apiece. The teams went back and forth from there, until CMB’s Abbey Applegate stepped up to the service line and delivered three aces. CMB fought to close things out at 21-16. CMB did not fair well against the visiting Gilbert Tigers, though. Gilbert swept the Raiders in three sets that were almost identical 25-15, 25-15, 25-17. There were few highlights for the Raid-

ers in the match. apart from the solid serve performances by Jurgens, Applegate, Haupert and Mackenzie Schmitz. Jurgens and Haupert each had aces, but the Tigers returned almost everything the Raiders put over the net en route to the win. Gilbert made similar work of Colfax-Mingo, but the Tigerhawks were able to steal a thrilling third set after a crushing defeat in the second. C-M lost 25-13, 25-8, 26-24, 25-11. Bald-

win, Allison Teed and Lewis were big keys to the third-set win. Lewis had several big kills to rally the Tigerhawks, and the serving of Olivia Maggard allowed C-M to reset its defense several times in anticipation of some tough strikes from Gilbert. CMB heads to Alleman to take on North Polk in a match next Tuesday, while the Tigerhawks will head to Monroe to take on Prairie City-Monroe.

Turner: Ditch the showmanship

Hawks fall on the road

about it, but I had a serious problem with these player intros. Each player, when it was her turn to be announced, stepped up and threw a ball into the crowd. I was pretty stunned with what I saw. One thought in particular came to mind: how long will it take before this spreads to other schools. Obviously, professional sports play a big role here. Young high school athletes see theatrical introductions at their favorite teams’ sporting events, and perhaps they even lobby the school to put on such a production, but this is not professional sports. It’s supposed to be much purer than that. Don’t get me wrong, I love the NBA, but I don’t want to see the player intros trickle down to high school volleyball or any other sport for that matter. High school sports are supposed to be about a

NEW SHARON — Lynnville-Sully’s Hawks dropped a three-set match to host North Mahaska Thursday. “We missed some critical serves, which can’t happen,” said Heather James, Hawk head coach. “In set one, we were down 10-2 and came back steady. We played well. They just played better. It seemed we were always playing catch-up.” North Mahaska won 2522, 25-21, 25-15. Cassie Cullen had 16 kills for Lynnville-Sully. Jade Van Rees was credited with 28 set assists. Lysandra James downed six kills and Macy Lanser had

few core principles, not putting on a show for the masses or showing up the home team’s opponent. I would implore whichever schools that currently do something to this effect to please stop, and think about the message you are sending. This isn’t supposed to be a ticket-selling, flashy extravaganza. High school sports are meant to represent and teach humility and respect. How are the girls supposed to learn these things when they are built up like professional athletes? I might be overreacting on this, but I would have a real problem if my child were in a situation like this. I hope it doesn’t catch on, and I would prefer to see less showmanship and more of a celebration of the team in general.

Deegan hits hole-in-one

No. 20 Texas Tech could be without QB Mayfield

GRINNELL — John Deegan, Newton, aced the No. 17 hole at Oakland Arces Golf Course

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech could be bowl eligible at the earliest date in five years if it beats Iowa State on Saturday. In his first season as coach of the No. 20 Red Raiders, Kliff Kingsbury might equal what his former coach did in 2008. Mike Leach had Texas Tech at 6-0 three weeks before the Red Raiders rose to their highest ranking ever, No. 2, after toppling No. 1 Texas to reach 9-0. Kingsbury, who said he expects to win every game, sees beyond Texas Tech (5-0, 2-0) becoming bowl eligible should the Red Raiders come out on top of the Cyclones (1-3, 0-1). “Being bowl eligible means in December, you get to practice with those young guys and get them more reps,” he said. “I think that’s what all coaches look forward to.” Iowa State is eyeing its first Big 12 win after falling 31-30 to Texas on a final-minute score last week. The Cyclones’ loses have come by a combined 15 points. “I know this may surprise some of you, but we’re pretty emotional and passionate every football game,” said Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads, who launched into a fiery postgame tirade about what he believed was a bad call near the goal line in the closing minutes of the Texas loss. “Win or lose, 10 or 20, last second or a game that’s decided in the third quarter, one of the challenging things in athletics is overcoming both wins and losses.” Kingsbury also could become

Bears stop skid, beat winless Giants 27-21

CHICAGO (AP) — Jay Cutler had no trouble finding Brandon Marshall this time. Tim Jennings struck early and late, and the Chicago Bears got the win they needed against a team still searching for its first victory. Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Marshall, and Jennings had two of Chicago’s three interceptions against Eli Manning in a 27-21 victory over the New York Giants on Thursday night. The Bears (4-2) snapped a two-game slide following a 3-0 start. New York is 0-6 for the first time since the 1976 team dropped its first nine, a stunning turn for a franchise that won the Super Bowl two years ago. The Giants came in clinging to the idea that they could claw their way back into the NFC East race because every team in the division has a losing record. It’s hard to see that happening, the way they’re playing. Cutler and Marshall were in tune early on, connecting for two touchdowns, and Jennings returned an interception 48 yards for a score as Chicago built a 24-14 halftime lead. Cutler was 24 of 36 for 262 yards after throwing for 358 against New Orleans last week. Marshall played a huge role in this one after venting over a lack of catches against the Saints, finishing with nine receptions for 87 yards. Manning, the owner of two championship rings, completed 14 of 26 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown, but he ran his league-leading total to 15 interceptions while matching last season’s number.

the first Texas Tech coach to win his first six games in his first season. Rhoads thinks highly of the former Red Raiders quarterback, noting that Kingsbury’s team was down 10 points early at Kansas last week. “ Winning on the road is hard, especially in this league, and they did it with a great sense of poise, and I think that Rhoads comes from the very top,” Rhoads said. Here are five things to watch when Iowa State plays Texas Tech: QB QUESTION FOR RED RAIDERS: There is uncertainty about starter Baker Mayfield, who is 132 for 201 for 1,488 yards passing with five interceptions to rank 18th in the nation. His right knee, which was twisted on a tackle last week, has no structural damage but it might be too sore for the freshman sensation to start or play. Backup Davis Webb has had some playing time but has thrown four picks. Rhoads said Baker’s been “marvelous: but that it won’t matter who plays QB for the Red Raiders. F UMBLES_RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME: Iowa State is the only team in the nation with three players — DEs Nick Kron and Cory Morrissey

and DB Deon Broomfield — with two fumble recoveries each. The Cyclones have recovered seven fumbles to rank second in the Big 12. “It’s never an easy game, by any means,” said Texas Tech DE Kerry Hyder, who has 18 total tackles and two sacks. “They always come out ready to play. So I expect them to come out with a chip on their shoulders as usual.” PENALTY PROBLEM: Texas Tech is near the bottom (tied for 118th) in penalties per game. The Red Raiders have been penalized no fewer than eight times in each game. They’ve been penalized 45 times for 416 yards for a per-game average of 83.2 yards. Kingsbury has harped on reducing penalties all season. RED ZONE FACEOFF: Texas Tech is third in the nation in red zone defense, allowing opponents two touchdowns and four field goals in 11 penetrations inside the Red Raiders’ 20. Iowa State is one of four teams nationally that’s perfect once the Cyclones get inside the red zone, getting nine TDs and four FGs in 13 trips. DUAL THREAT RED RAIDERS: Texas Tech has three receivers in the top 10 in the receptions in the Big 12: Jace Amaro, Eric Ward and Jakeem Grant. The Red Raiders’ passing attack gets even better when their run game is humming. “They’ve got great players on the inside and the outside,” the Cyclones’ Broomfield said. “You can’t just concentrate on their passing game.”

The moon in Aquarius is very much in harmony with the Libra sun until she changes suit this evening, slipping into the more emotional realm of Pisces. From here, the moon understands that the “it’s all good” attitude of the early day won’t quite fit because it’s not “all good,” not really. Admitting that is the first step to healing.

doesn’t require you to persist isn’t worth doing.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 14). You’ll open your heart and make friends from all over the world -- you’re an ambassador for peace. The next three weeks increase the flow of love through your life. November features appreciation from strangers, new fans and applause. December brings unusual visitors. Things pick up financially in February. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 3, 33, 28 and 1.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Nothing would exist without the yellow radiance of sunshine. This applies to your relationships, too, which will thrive only when they get the warmth and energy they need.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Persistence is an important part of your success equation now. It’s so important, in fact, that any job that

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The simplest acts of self-care will lift your mood. What is it you’ve been missing lately? What would be a treat to experience? What would you do if you had a little extra time to spend on yourself? Do it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Though it does you no good to dwell on something negative, it also won’t do you any good to ignore it completely. Once you identify the thing that’s bothering you, you’ll immediately be lighter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may struggle with what you believe is a self-

discipline issue. In reality, what’s lacking is desire. You don’t want the outcome badly enough to do what it takes to achieve it.

problem from a place of scattered desperation. No good comes of grasping. Either hold tight or let go.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). How can you help another person get where they want to go? The one who comes up with the best answer to this question will win business and friendship too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). In order to get anywhere at all, you’ll need the agreement of other people. The easiest way to get this agreement is to offer what you know they need and want: a bit of entertainment.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s the very difficult things that are the most rewarding. These things shouldn’t be attempted every single day. In between efforts, you need to give yourself time to recover, relax and heal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not in the mood to think deeply about anything, and your timing couldn’t be better, by the way! Skim the surface, and you’ll go fast and far. You’ll land in a beautiful place.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Like a hot air balloon, you will be able to float to loftier altitudes once you release the sandbags of bitterness, resentment and guilt. Who do you need to forgive today?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll gravitate toward soft dynamics, but the way you express yourself will still make a bold impression. People may even be a little afraid or intimidated by your quiet reserve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Center your energy so you won’t approach any
