75 cents

Newton, Iowa

Bond issue has yet to be fully proposed to council

OBITUARIES Roy ‘Sonny’ Hawkins, 73

Dave Hon Daily News Staff Writer The City of Newton has a lot of visions for the future, but funding those visions will most likely require a new bond issue. In a City Administrator’s memo to the City Council, Chip Schultz of Ruan Securities, who is the city’s financial advisor, estimated that to cover the costs, a new $.07 debt service levy increase would be required. This increase, which hasn’t even been

proposed to the council yet, would last for 10 years. The property tax valuation would stay at $1.11 per $1,000 of assessed property value for 10 years after it is passed. After that time, the levy would begin decreasing, only if other bond issues have not been passed in that 10-year period. “It should be noted that there are other long-term needs that remain unfunded and the city administrator will bring back further proposals and some of those could be well suited for a bond issue,” Director of Finance and Development Bryan Fried-

man said. Friedman said in the initial proposal stage, the cost of the housing initiative could be one part of a part issue. Friedman said the final decision and fate of any bond issue lies in the discussions and actions of the city council. “The city administrator put forth this as one preliminary option as to how this could potentially be funded,” Friedman said. “It’s COUNCIL See Page 5A

Submitted Photo The “Edna Project” — a six-foot sculpture being created by artist Herman Deaton — was open for public viewing last week and will be again during an art show from 2 to 4 Sunday at the Centre for Arts and Artists in Newton. The sculpture then will be transported to a fine arts foundry in Colorado. The CAA and Iowa Sculpture Festival raised funds to acquire resources for Deaton, CAA resident artist, to create the lifesize bronze sculpture of his mother, Edna, hanging a towel on the clothesline in the 1930s.

A federal judge will decide Friday morning if the federal trial of a Newton man charged with the production of child pornography will be delayed. James Wiley Brock, 72, is currently set to stand trial Oct. 28 on three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor in the production of child pornography and possession of child pornography. He was initially arrested and charged by Newton police with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of invasion of privacy. A hearing to determine if evidence seized by Newton police — including more than 1,000 VHS and DVD recordings of video and images of nude minor females, video monitors, hidden video cameras, VCRs, DVD players and computers — may be admitted in court. His attorney in that Brock case alleges the search warrant was obtained as the result of information provided following an unlawful entry into Brock’s home. That hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 4 in Jasper County District Court. A federal grand jury handed down a four-count indictment against Brock in late August. On the first count of sexual exploitation, he is accused of knowingly inducing a 13-year-old girl into producing a “lascivious exhibition.” The alleged incident was said to have happened in a tanning bed in his home in June of 2011. The second count involves a similar charge with a 14-year-old girl that is alleged to have happened in April. The third count involves another similar charge with a 13-year-old girl that is alleged to have happened in May. It is unclear based on the grand jury indictment how many individual girls are alleged to have been victims in the case. The fourth count alleges Brock was in possession of at least one piece of child pornography. Brock’s federal public defender asked for a continuance of the trial to allow more time to look into the case, and possibly to conduct plea negotiations with federal prosecutors.

Halferty and board agree to delay vote on county EOC upgrade

Jasper County Sheriff John Halferty asked the Jasper County Board of Supervisors to table a vote concerning the Jasper County Emergency Operations Command Centers that he deemed to be vital to the county. “What we are trying to do there with the new armory, as our emergency operations center/emergency management site, it’s critical that we get some ability out of that building to communicate and have communications, including a backup dispatch,” Halferty told the board. “If for some reason we went down at the Sheriff ’s Office or there is a major event such as a flood — such as the flood we had in Colfax and Reasnor areas or major disaster — the

emergency operation center would be open and it would be critical to have some form of comHalferty munication coming out of there. So we can be consistent and efficient in handling whatever that disaster is,” he continued. Perry-based Spring Valley Wireless had submitted a quote of $16,595 to take on the project. Some of the items included in the quote were removing and reinstalling a console at the EOC, eight hours of crane rental, placing eight PolyPhasers and grounding for lightening protection, and placing an-

tennas around the facility. Halferty said he wanted to see what other bids were out there and see what additional measures would be needed for the project. “We are going to resubmit to a couple of vendors to see if we can get some more interest,” Halferty said. “Not only that, I think there is (no) question we need to include the amateur radio association, the HAM operators. They are pretty vital in the case of large incidents in being able to communicate. We would also like to have them have the ability to communicate out of the armory as well.” Halferty went on to explain how the Newton Amateur Radio Association, Inc. has the ability communicate from his office, but would need the proposed upgrades to be able use their HAM radios to relay

emergency information from the EOC. Halferty also gave the board an update on the progress of the bulletproof wall that is being constructed at his office, which he said is going well. The board previously approved the project during the Aug. 6 meeting. Halferty’s quarterly report also was approved. His office had $145,563.96 in receipts and $154,338.60 in disbursements. His office started the quarter with a balance of $24,497.27 and ended with balance of $15,722.63. Jasper County Maintenance Supervisor Adam Sparks received approval from the board to receive consulting work for the courthouse elevator project. North Liberty-based A&J Associates won the contract and its services would cost around $5,300.

Four dead after boat capsizes off coast of south Florida MIAMI (AP) — Four women died and 10 other people were taken into custody after a boat with more than a dozen people aboard — including Haitian and Jamaican nationals — capsized early Wednesday in the waters off south Florida. The U.S. Coast Guard responded around 1 a.m. after a 911 call alerted authorities to an overturned recreational vessel seven miles east of Miami. Nine people were found clinging to the hull, said Petty Officer Mark Barney. A 10th person was taken by boat to Miami Beach, where he was treated at a hospital and released, Barney said. The group was taken into custody and authorities were investigating whether the victims and survivors were part of a human smuggling operation. The nine people found clinging to the hull were Haitian and Jamaican nationals, but the nationalities of the rest of the group were not immediately known, Barney said. The bodies of four women were recovered from the water. The Coast Guard was no longer searching for more possible survivors, Cmdr. Darren Caprara said later Wednesday

morning. The survivors rescued from the water were still on a Coast Guard vessel at sea and it was unclear whether they would be brought to the U.S. or repatriated. All the survivors were in good condition, Caprara said. Images of the vessel show a small white boat with its center console missing. It was overloaded and lacked lifejackets, Caprara said. Migrants from Haiti, Cuba and other Caribbean countries routinely attempt to illegally enter the U.S. by reaching Florida’s coast in overloaded or unseaworthy vessels. In the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, the Coast Guard picked up 508 Haitians and 1,357 Cubans at sea. Since the new fiscal year began Oct. 1, the Coast Guard has reported picking up 93 Haitians and 117 Cubans. The number of migrants who die in the crossing or disappear into the community after successfully reaching shore is unknown. Cubans who arrive in the U.S. are generally allowed to stay under the “Wet-foot, Dry-foot” policy, while those stopped at sea are usually returned home. Other immigrants do not receive the same treatment.

18-foot-long sea creature found off California coast LOS ANGELES (AP) — A marine science instructor snorkeling off the Southern California coast spotted something out of a fantasy novel: the silvery carcass of an 18-foot-long, serpent-like oarfish. Jasmine Santana of the Catalina Island Marine Institute needed more than 15 helpers to drag the giant sea creature with eyes the size of half dollars to shore Sunday. Staffers at the institute are calling it the discovery of a lifetime. “We’ve never seen a fish this big,” said Mark Waddington, senior captain of the Tole Mour, CIMI’s sail training ship. “The last oarfish we saw was three feet long.” Because oarfish dive more than 3,000 feet deep, sightings of the creatures are rare and they are largely unstudied, according to CIMI. The obscure fish apparently died of natural causes. Tissue samples and video footage were sent to

be studied by biologists at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Santana spotted something shimmering about 30 feet deep while snorkeling during a staff trip in Toyon Bay at Santa Catalina Island, about two dozen miles from the mainland. “She said, ‘I have to drag this thing out of here or nobody will believe me,’” Waddington said. After she dragged the carcass by the tail for more than 75 feet, staffers waded in and helped her bring it to shore. The carcass was on display Tuesday for 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students studying at CIMI. It will be buried in the sand until it decomposes and then its skeleton will be reconstituted for display, Waddington said. The oarfish, which can grow to more than 50 feet, is a deep-water pelagic fish — the longest bony fish in the world, according to CIMI. They are likely responsible for sea serpent legends throughout history.

ISU research foundation hold a variety of patents AMES (AP) — Iowa State University holds the patent for the process that led to making the world-famous Maytag blue cheese. The university’s research foundation also holds patents for lead-free solder used in most of today’s electronics, and the algorithm that made a faster fax machine. The Iowa State University Research Foundation is observing its 75th anniversary as the organization that receives, protects, and licenses inventions resulting university research. The blue cheese patent awarded in 1938 was one of the first issued to the university. Since then other ISU scientists have created a vaccination for kennel cough and developed Allsweet hybrid watermelon varieties. Over the last 10 years, the foundation has returned over $55 million to inventors, colleges and research centers.

Letter to the Editor

The truth about Thunder Nites in Newton To the editor: Thunder Nites in Newton has wrapped up its second year of successful bike nights on the Newton Town Square. Due to hard work and dedication by a group of volunteers, we are looking forward to continuing the tradition of gaining the notoriety of becoming the 2nd largest bike night in the State of Iowa behind Indianola who has been hosting bike nights for the past 10 years. Thunder Nites is a nonprofit reorganization of the Weekend Pit Stop charter. There was much research in a short amount of time that originally went in to the preparations of Thunder Nites for our inaugural season of 2012.  We modeled ourselves after the success of Indianola and were told by their organization not to be discouraged if we only had 50 to 100 bikes show up for a couple of years. Imagine our surprise when on May 11, 2012, approximately 600 motorcycles showed up to support us. Since that time we

have continued to grow. Please allow me to let you in on some facts about motorcycle enthusiasts who attend bike nights. The average age of a motorcyclist who attends a bike night is approximately 50 years old. These are working class white- and bluecollar workers. Whether they are lawyers, doctors, teachers, factory workers, construction workers and/or Veterans, they share the love of motorcycles and meeting new people. Many a motorcycle man will tell you his first love is his bike and the second is the woman on the back. Motorcycle women understand this philosophy and smile if their man puts it like that.  Many women ride their own bikes and love the open road as much as the men do. The camaraderie and mutual respect between these motorcycle enthusiasts is second to none. When a town hosts a bike night, it is open to the public. Micah Cope’s letter to the editor raised some question as to exactly what Thun-

der Nites is promoting. First and foremost Mr. Cope, we do not advocate drinking and driving. We provide the music and vendors supply the food and beverages for the enjoyment of those who attend bike night.  The true motorcyclist traveling to a bike night is not a heavy drinker and would never think of putting themselves and others at risk by being drunk on their bike.  It was unfortunate that he stated he witnessed a 14 year old smoke their first cigarette and we can only wonder; where were this child’s parents? I can also guarantee two Newton police officers are present at every single bike night as I personally speak to them.    What we do promote is a two-fold mission. First, to bring people in to Newton to experience what Newton and Jasper County has to offer. Each bike night it is announced on stage what the happenings are around the town and county. Second, is to be able to give back to the com-

munity through the events. This year we are pleased to say, we were able to aid and/or donate to the AKTION club of Progress Industries, Poweshiek Animal League Service and Historic Route 6 for the benefit of Jasper County. The estimation of revenue into the city and county throughout the course of the bike night season is approximately $500,000. This could be through gasoline sales, food sales, hotel stays or grocery stores. Many nonprofit groups have taken advantage of promoting their organization on the town square during bike nights. We have welcomed the Jasper County Animal Rescue League, the Veterans Administration, the Patriot Guard Riders and the Newton American Legion Riders just to name a few. We welcome any nonprofit to set up a table at bike night to promote their organization.   Thunder Nites In Newton committee would like to thank the Jasper County Board of Supervisors, Jasper County Sheriff Office,

Jasper County Attorneys Officer, Newton City Council, The Mayor’s Office, Newton Police Department, Newton City Attorney Office, Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Newton Chamber of Commerce for their continued support.

Ty’s Take

Hanging in ‘The Nest’ with the ‘Horsemen’ of NHS Last Friday, I accomplished something I have wanted to do ever since I went to my first Cardinal football game, I hung out in “The Nest.” The Nest is the student section of H.A. Lynn Stadium and once I saw how energetic they were, I wanted to experience that. I love By Ty Rushing seeing kids doing positive things Daily News Staff Writer and I was more than happy to take part and help support “The Pink Out.” Although, I got to experience why The Nest is the best seat in the house for myself, I asked NHS senior Haleigh Lamb, who is also one of the “Horsewomen,” to elaborate on this. “Cause were the ‘Horsemen’ and the ‘Horsewomen,’ that’s why it’s the best section,” Haleigh yelled over the cheers of her excited classmates. The Horsemen and Horsewomen are the leaders of the students section and essentially act as cheerleaders for The Nest. These kids are awesome! They do pushups for however many points the Cardinals’ have, they are usually adorned with red and black paint (Friday they were painted pink), and they lead a series of unique cheers.

Dan Goetz Publisher Mandi Lamb Associate Editor

“Each year we make up new ones (cheers), because they have to work out with last names,” Haleigh said. “A lot of them are handed down, it depends on if we like them or not.” She also gave an example of some of the cheers they’ve developed for the players. “Caught that Easley,” is the cheer for Nick Easley. “We’ve got Wood” is the cheer for Tyler Wood, Tristian Peters’ cheer is “We like Peters” and Deonne Harris’ cheer is “Throwing Up the Deuces,” because his jersey number is 22. Haleigh also explained the history of The Nest to me. “The Nest just started this year, but this has always been the student’s

section. This is where everybody sits,” Haleigh said. I hung out in The Nest for a few series and tried to learn a few of the synchronized dances with the kids (which I failed at miserably). I also saw the traditional “Kissing of The Leg.” The Leg is an old manikin leg, that is painted red and has a white ‘N’ on it. Legend has it a group of Horsemen stole the leg from an actual manikin a long, long time ago. Hanging out with those kids was pretty refreshing. Here it is a Friday night, and they could be out doing a million other things, most of them not good mind you, but instead they were out supporting their school and

classmates. Moments like that are what Red Pride is all about. I asked Haleigh if she thought they had the best student section in the state and she gave me a kind of cocky smile before she answered. “Pretty close, we are up there,” she said. “Even last week, there was like 10 people in the crowd, but we still had fun.” I agree with Haleigh and the fact Newton dominated ADM 45-28, made my foray into The Nest even better. Saydel better get ready Friday, for not only the Cardinals, but the best student section in the state led by the Horsemen and Horsewomen.

Iowa trial moved for man charged with killing wife BOONE (AP) — The trial of a man charged with killing his wife in Boone has been moved to a different county. A judge ruled last week that 39-year-old Alexander Fazzino’s trial will happen in Buchanan County instead of Boone County. Defense attorneys had filed a motion for the move because of media coverage in the area. Fazzino is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Emily Fazzino. She was found dead on a bathroom floor at the couple’s home in January 2012. The Des Moines Register reported attorneys also noted in their motion that the status of Emily Fazzino’s family in Boone County would affect the trial. Buchanan County is more than 130 miles from Boone County. The trial is scheduled to begin in June next year. Des Moines;Brookwood Incorporated;E65090;3.22x7.5 (b1)

IOWA CITY (AP) — Officials are proposing a nearly $8,000 cut in annual nonresident tuition so they can attract more students to the University of Iowa College of Law. The Des Moines Register reported the proposal disclosed on

Tuesday is aimed at reversing a decline in applicants and class size. If approved by the Board of Regents in December, the tuition reduction would take effect in fall 2014. Law schools around the country have cut tuition in recent

years as enrollment has declined. Under the proposal, tuition for nonresidents pursuing a law degree at the school would drop to $39,500 from nearly $47,300. Resident tuition would increase nearly $500, to nearly $26,750 a year.

Sexually active teens must be responsible for birth control DEAR ABBY: My 17-year-old daughter confided that she has become sexually involved with her boyfriend and asked if I would buy condoms for her. I agreed that she should protect herself and bought her a box of 12. A week later, she informed me that she needed another 12-pack. When I asked why she had run out so quickly, she confessed that she has been supplying them to her girlfriends. Apparently they can’t confide in their moms the way she can with me. My dilemma is that condoms are expensive and, on one hand, I don’t want to be the one supplying a group of kids. On the other hand, if I can help to prevent an unwanted pregnancy, maybe it’s worth it. What do you think I should do? — SAFE SEX ADVOCATE IN ILLINOIS DEAR SAFE SEX ADVOCATE: If your daughter’s friends are old enough to be sexually active, they and their boyfriends should also be responsible enough to provide their own birth control. Generally, teens do not need the permission of their parents to receive information about it. Because you want to help them avoid unwanted pregnancies (as well as STDs), direct them to the nearest Planned Parenthood Center for low-cost or no-cost birth control and instruction on how to use it. There are 18 of these health centers in Illinois. To find the one closest to you, visit DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of three wonderful girls. The problem is my husband thinks the way to make them love him is by allowing them everything I don’t. I’ll give you some examples: I don’t let the girls eat anywhere except at the table, so my husband brings treats into the family room. I try to limit high-sugar/fat items like chips and candy, which he buys for them on a regular basis. I also try to adhere to a regular bedtime schedule, while he thinks nothing of stretching lights-out to an hour or more later. Then he complains that the girls won’t listen to him, so I must be in charge of

the discipline. While this makes him Fun Daddy in our house, it makes me ... MEAN MOMMY IN OHIO DEAR MOMMY: It appears you’re not just raising three wonderful girls, but also coping with an immature, overgrown boy. Parenthood is supposed to be a united, consistent partnership, a team effort. Your husband is sabotaging you and ignoring that one of the responsibilities of parenthood is establishing rules and limits that children should live with. Your husband needs parenting classes, and if that’s not possible, some sessions with a child behavior expert who can explain the consequences of what he’s doing to his daughters in the name of being “Fun Daddy.” From my perspective, there isn’t anything funny about it. You have my sympathy. DEAR ABBY: I work at a senior retirement community, and the residents have a Halloween party each year. In the past, there were prizes for the three best costumes. However, last year they stopped giving prizes because one of the residents is a professional artist and costume maker, and the association felt it would be unfair to the others to have him compete. This year it was decided not to hold the contest at all. The residents are disappointed. How can they continue to have the costume contest and include the professional? — DRESSED UP IN LOUISIANA DEAR DRESSED UP: Ask the artist/costume designer to be the judge.

Military museum at Camp Dodge will remain open JOHNSTON (AP) — The Iowa Gold Star Military Museum at Camp Dodge in Johnston will remain open thanks to volunteers and support from the state. The Iowa National Guard announced Tuesday the museum, which had been set to close beginning Sunday due to the federal shutdown, would instead remain open. In a news release, the Guard credited Newton Daily News

museum volunteers and the backing of Gov. Terry Branstad, who said at a Monday news conference that he would keep the museum open. Col. Greg Hapgood says the state will pay a part-time staffer and volunteers will fill in as needed. The museum is open Mondays through Saturdays. The museum was established in 1985 and is the only federally recognized repository for military artifacts in Iowa.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Time growing desperately short, Senate leaders took command of efforts to avert a Treasury default and end the partial government shutdown Tuesday night after a last big attempt by House Republicans abruptly collapsed. Aides to both Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, expressed revived optimism about chances for a swift agreement — by Wednesday at the latest — that could pass both houses. Their efforts toward a bipartisan resolution had seemed likely to bear fruit a day earlier before House conservative were given a last-minute chance for their version. As hours ticked down toward Thursday’s Treasury deadline, the likeliest compromise included renewed authority for the Treasury to borrow through early February and the government to reopen at least until mid-January. While a day of secret meetings and frenzied maneuvering unfolded in all corners of the Capitol, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., stood on the Senate floor at midafternoon and declared, “We are 33 hours away from becoming a deadbeat nation, not paying its bills to its own people and other creditors.” In New York, the stock market dropped and the Fitch rating agency warned that it was reviewing the government’s AAA credit rating for a possible downgrade, though no action was near. The firm, one of the three leading U.S. credit-ratings agencies, said that “the political brinkmanship and reduced financing flexibility could increase the risk of a U.S. default.” According to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, unless Congress acts by Thursday, the government will lose its ability to borrow and will be required to meet its obligations relying only on cash on hand and incoming tax receipts. President Barack Obama and numerous other

officials in government and finance have warned of severe economic consequences if federal obligations come due that can’t be paid. By all accounts, though, an end seems near for the impasse that has once again exposed a government so divided that it sometimes borders on dysfunction. Though the House failed to muster sufficient support for a conservatives-only bill in the GOP-majority chamber on Tuesday, enough Republicans there seem likely to join House Democrats to approve a bipartisan version if it can be approved by the Senate and sent to them. Politically, neither party is faring well, but polls indicate Republicans are bearing the brunt of public unhappiness as survey after survey shows their approval ratings plunging. There was no indication Tuesday night of the terms of a possible deal under discussion by Reid and McConnell, although the contours of an agreement had already come into shape on Monday, before what amounted to a daylong detour to give Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans time to craft their solution. As it stood previously, the bipartisan Senate talks were focused on a plan to allow the Treasury to borrow freely through Feb. 7 and reopen the government with enough funds to carry over to mid-January. Congressional negotiators would be appointed to seek a long-term deficit reduction plan, and in the meantime federal agencies would receive increased flexibility to deal with the impact of across-the-board spending cuts due to take effect on about Jan. 15. With Republicans opposed, the likelihood faded for including an earlier proposal to delay a $63-per-person fee that the nation’s health care overhaul would impose on companies for all who receive coverage under an employer-provided plan.

Praise Band drummer credits God for his talent By Dave Hon Daily News Staff Writer Not many people can praise God by savagely beating sticks on tanned animal hide, but Layton Elscott isn’t your typical drummer. Elscott recently competed in the Guitar Center Drum Off and made it to the store finals with four other drummers. “I was playing up against some pretty talented guys and unfortunately I didn’t make it past that,” Elscott said. “The top two guys had gone up to the regionals, which is just one step down from the nationals. So it was a pretty tough competition.” Elscott is also the drummer in the praise band Vertical Soul. He said the name of the band comes from the idea that God loves everyone and everyone has the ability to grow, spiritually. “Obviously I’m a very modern day Christian,” Elscott said. “Everybody has room to grow in their faith and religion. You’re never too far or too close.” Elscott said he’s been playing the drums since he was 3 years old and fell into it when he started listening to his dad,

up. Taking on the drums has been a natural thing for me so it just kind of progressed over the years.” Elscott said it’s not all just talent and experience. He said he spends a lot of time evaluating his style and incorporating new things into

his style. Aside from growing up and having drumming ingrained in his genetics, Elscott believes his skill on the sticks is a gift from God and is a way he can give back. “There’s certain things that people do that’s an acquired skill and go have lessons, and you practice your tail end off. You might turn out great, you might not,” Elscott said. “People have watched me play. They’ve said it’s not necessary a skill or a talent, but it’s more of a gift.” Elscott currently isn’t in college because he’s pursuing his musical abilities.

Cards handle Oskaloosa, stay in hunt for LHC title By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor OSKALOOSA — Newton’s Cardinals have what they wanted. They will play for the Little Hawkeye Conference championship at home next Tuesday. The Cardinals swept host Oskaloosa in a three-set conference match Tuesday night. The 25-21, 27-25, 25-9 win put Newton at 5-1 in LHC play and 21-9 overall. Pella defeated Norwalk, 20-25, 25-17, 25-21, 25-19, to go 6-0 in the conference and 20-14 overall. “We knew going into this match that because it was Okaloosa’s Se-

nior Night, they would be fired up and ready to play,” said Kim Florke, Newton head coach. “They didn’t disappoint. They really battled us for the first two sets. “We knew if we could maintain our composure, they would run out of gas. We saw that in the third set with an easy win.” So, on Senior Night next Tuesday, Class 4A 15th-ranked Cardinals host the 4A 12th- ranked Pella Little Dutch in a Little Hawkeye Conference showdown. The varsity match is at 7:15 p.m. in the NHS gym. Before they get there, the Cardinals have to focus on Saturday’s tournament at Johnston.

“We look forward to going to Johnston Saturday and playing and competing in a very tough tournament,” Florke said. “We play Dowling Catholic, West Des Moines Valley and Green County in pool play. We want to use this tournament to continue to get better as a team. Against Oskaloosa, Florke said in the second set Newton lost a really long rally for Oskloosa to go up 1815. She said she called her final timeout at 20-15. “The kids really battled and fought back to 27-25. That was a nice win for the kids,” she said. The Cardinals didn’t disappoint, either.

Boston holds off Tigers

DETROIT (AP) — Once again this October, one run was enough. John Lackey edged Justin Verlander in the latest duel of these pitching-rich playoffs, and Boston’s bullpen shut down Detroit’s big boppers with the game on the line to lift the Red Sox over the Tigers 1-0 Tuesday for a 2-1 lead in the AL championship series. Mike Napoli homered off Verlander in the seventh inning, and Detroit’s best chance to rally fell short in the eighth when Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder struck out with runners at the corners. Despite three straight gems by their starters, the Tigers suddenly trail in a best-of-seven series they seemed to control just two days ago. Game 4 is Wednesday night at Comerica Park, with Jake Peavy scheduled to start for the Red Sox against Doug Fister. Lackey allowed four hits in 6 2/3 innings, striking out eight without a walk in a game that was delayed 17 minutes in the second inning because lights on the stadium towers went out.

Dowling Catholic edges out Aquagirls By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News NCMP’s Sierra Griffith competes in the varsity breaststroke race at last week’s home swim meet. The Aquagirls had their dual winning streak snapped Tuesday, losing at Dowling Catholic by three points.

WEST DES MOINES — NCMP’s Aquagirls fell three points short Tuesday. They went into the dual with host Dowling Catholic with a spotless dual record for 2013. Their goal was to avenge their only dual loss of last year. “We knew we would have a battle on our hands, and that is exactly what it was,” said Sarah Patterson, NCMP’s head coach. “The meet went back and forth the whole time. Unfortunately, we had to spot them 13 points because we do not have a diving team due to having no facilities for diving. “We lost by three points, but we are holding our heads high because we give it everything

we had and left everything in the pool. Coach (Chris) Forsyth and I are very proud of these girls and of the seniors for the leadership they have shown.” Patterson said the meet came down to the last relay and “we just didn’t have the depth that they did.” NCMP won the 400-yard freestyle relay in 3 minutes, 46.11 seconds the group of Carly Colville, Rachel Prendergast, Sydney Jenkins, and Samantha Hedrick. “Samantha’s final split of 53.92 brought down the house as she dominated Dowling’s last swimmer in the homestretch.

Comets take out Raiders in straight sets By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer ALLEMAN — Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s Raiders had been on a roll since some early season struggles, but the Raiders reverted to some of their old ways in a loss to North Polk on Tuesday. CMB lost in straight sets — 2516, 25-15, 25-6 — to a North Polk team that has won six matches in a row. A b b i e Haupert led the team in kills with four. Bridget Hruley and Payge Jurgens were second among Raiders with three apiece. Haupert Hannah McW hir ter, Bekah Pearson, Katie Ziesman and Abbey Applegate each recorded one kill. Haupert had five blocks to lead the Raiders. Alex Hiavacek blocked one. Mackenzie Schmitz’ four assists were tops for the team. Applegate had three assists. Applegate served up a perfect 10-for-10 from the back line. Jurgens was 8-for-8 with an ace serve. Schmitz landed all seven of her serves with one assist. “We really struggled tonight,” CMB coach Scott Ranck said. “We had little energy, didn’t move our feet or talk, and we didn’t pass well. “Right there is pretty much the recipe for a rough night, and that it was. On a bright note, we only missed one served and served 97.4 percent. We are disappointed in the performance, and need to come back, refocus, and get back after it as we have one more match at South Hamilton on Thursday before tournament play begins next Tuesday.”

Mustangs overcome feisty Tigerhawks at home By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer MONROE — Despite a tough weekend in Pella, where the Mustangs lost all five of their games at the Little Dutch-hosted tournament, Prairie City-Monroe’s volleyball team stayed focused and aggressive on Tuesday night, taking a four-set victory over conference rival Colfax-Mingo, 25-14, 26-24, 23-25, 25-18. “I think our hitters stayed aggressive, and they stayed smart,” PCM coach Mollie Keitges said. “Our service and passing looked good, which starts it all. We served aggressive.” PCM took care of the first set, handily beating the Tigerhawks by 11 points. The Mustangs struggled to start the second set, and they found themselves behind 18-16 late, but key kills by Abbi Gilson and Lexi Kain fueled a furious comeback. PCM ended up charging all the way back, and it only needed one extra point to take the second set. C-M made things interesting again early in the third set, taking a 6-2 advantage. PCM fought back, but a block by Kayla Van Dusseldorp put the Tigerhawks up 7-4. Amy Russell landed an ace serve on the next point to put C-M up by four. PCM’s Ashlee Kain answered with an ace to bring PCM within two at 9-7. Lexi Kain’s spike pulled PCM within one, and the Mustangs tied the set on the next point. A side out gave the lead and the ball back to the Tigerhawks. C-M rallied for four straight points to take an 18-14 lead. A double tap ended the rally, but Van Dusseldorp blocked the next kill attempt to retake the four-point lead. Gilson led a PCM rally to pull within two at 21-19. C-M made it set-point at 24-20, and it struggled to close out the set, but PCM eventually hit one into the net to make it 25-23. Courtney Van Houweling kicked off the fourth set with an ace to give PCM the edge. C-M pulled ahead 3-2, but a kill by Van Houweling later on tied things up at five. Van Dusseldorp gave C-M a 6-5 lead with a kill. Lexi Kain answered with a one-armed strike with her back to the net to tie the set at six. PCM retook the lead when C-M went into the net. Lexi Kain served up an

ace to make it 9-7, but the Tigerhawks rallied from behind to tie it at 10. Van Houweling spiked one to the floor to make it 11-10. Jade Lewis scored a kill later on to give C-M a 13-12 lead. Gilson answered with a tip to tie it at 15. Lexi Kain had a spike to make it 16-15. One of the C-M front-line players crossed the midcourt line on the next point, giving the Mustangs a twopoint lead. Lexi Kain then had a kill followed by a finesse tip that landed softly to the floor to take a 2117 edge. Van Houweling ended the match on a tip. “We just did the little things,” Keitges said. “We had that one-set lapse in there where our communication broke down, but then they were able to pick that back up.” Colfax-Mingo coach Brian Warrick declined to comment on the match. Lexi Kain and Gilson led the team with 13 kills apiece, followed by Van Houweling with 12. Lexi Kain’s four aces also led the squad. Van Houwel-

ing and Emma Williams had three ace serves. Ashlee Kain, Gilson and Kayla Jennings each had one ace. Cassidy Van Veen’s 13 set assists were tops for the Mustangs. Williams’ nine were second. Jayci Vos had eight. Lexi Kain had the only solo block for the Mustangs. PCM hosts Roland-Story on Thursday night, which will be a different test for the Mustangs. The Norse will be the last matchup at home for the Mustangs before they head to Fairfield on Saturday to participate in a tournament. “Any win at this point is good for our morale and confidence,” Keitges said. “We’re playing hard, and we’re doing some really good things. We just have to learn how to put things together and not have the valley. We talked about having more peaks and less valleys. Any victory is going to be great for our mental health. The girls are still working hard, and they’re making progress. We just want to keep working hard through the finish.”

Pressbox: Daily News wants to hear your story ideas Continued from Page 1B Triple Crown run. I know what’s going to happen in each of those races in the film but I love it. I watched on my television as the Miracle on Ice unfolded but I’m still enthralled with the stories the movie tells of the coaches and players on that team. One of the great stories I’ve read recently is the book “Our Boys: A Perfect Season on the Plains with the Smith Center Redmen.” The best seller by New York Times sportswriter Joe Drape chronicles a quest by Smith Center, Kan., High School’s football team for a fifth consecutive state title in 2008. The Redmen had won 56 straight games going into that season and held the nation’s longest highschool winning streak. The story is about the players, a philosophy of life taught by Smith Center’s legendary coach, Roger Barta, the community and the heartland of America. “Our Boys” was a citywide read for Iola, Kan., the community I lived in before coming to Newton, and is a tremendous book to sit and read. I read about Don Haskins and Texas Western University, now University of Texas-El-Paso, when I was in college. It

was part of my sports journalism history course. So when “Glory Road,” came out, I wanted to own the movie. The historic significance of the Miners’ run with “the best players on the court” to an NCAA national basketball championship. The Miners beat powerhouse Kentucky in the title game with the first-ever all-African-American lineup. I could go on and on. My point is, I love a good story. I’ve been fortunate over the past 30-plus years to relate the stories of the local variety. I have some others, such as the 1985 World Series in Kansas City. Yeah, the one St. Louis fans can’t let go of much like the Boston fans keep ahold of the Bill Buckner story, etc. The thing is both of those “mishaps” happened in Game 6 of their respective World Series. Sure, it prevented the Cardinals and Red Sox from winning that night but they had opportunities to win the World Series in Game 7. St. Louis did not show up in Game 7 — I was there at the stadium, sitting up behind home plate covering the game. The Red Sox led in their Game 7 of the 1986 World Series against the Mets. No, my stories are about a high school girls’ basketball team, down by seven with just over a minute to play

in the state tournament’s third-place game. One of its “Twin Towers” — 6-4 twin sisters — had fouled out of the game. They rallied to win. Or, about a high school football team breaking a three-year losing streak. Or, about a young girl who competed in the NFL Punt, Pass & Kick contest, making it to the national finals three times. The story of an unbeaten, topranked Class 1A boys’ basketball team seemingly on its way to a state championship, derailed in a first-round upset and the heartbreak of it all to the players, their coaches and fans. A group of older men still playing and competing at a high level in softball or co-ed pool teams winning a trip to national tournaments, or the athletes competing in Special Olympics are all stories that are compelling. There are similar stories here in Newton and the surrounding area. I, and the Newton Daily News, look for such stories every day. Some we find, but we also need help discovering them. So, please, if you have a story let us know!

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Cardinals have been this close to the World Series before, and they don’t want to blow it this time. St. Louis got home runs from Matt Holliday and pinch-hitter Shane Robinson — the first of the NL championship series — and beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 Tuesday night for a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven playoff. The Cardinals have lost the NLCS both times they owned such a commanding lead, most recently last season when they dropped three in a row to San Francisco, the eventual World Series winner. “That’s something that we thought last year — up 3-1 and all we have to do is win one more and we’re there,” closer Trevor Rosenthal said. “But that

didn’t work out, so we’ve just got to keep the same approach.” Joe Kelly will start Game 5 for the Cardinals, looking to clinch their 19th pennant. The Dodgers will turn to Zack Greinke, and if he can help deliver a win, they’ll call on ace Clayton Kershaw for a potential Game 6 back in St. Louis. “I’ve got one of the best pitchers in baseball pitching tomorrow,” manager Don Mattingly said. “If we come out here and play well tomorrow and get a win, I’ve probably got the best pitcher in baseball pitching the next day.” Seeking a second World Series title in three years, St. Louis turned three important double plays and picked off a runner at second base in the seventh. Defensive standout Pete Kozma, in-

serted at shortstop in the sixth, started a difficult double play and darted in to complete the pickoff. Second baseman Matt Carpenter also keyed St. Louis’ sharp work with the gloves, one night after some sloppy play was costly in a 3-0 defeat. Carpenter had an RBI double in the third that scored Descalso, who hit a leadoff single. Carpenter came around on Holliday’s homer after there were none in the first three games for the first time in NLCS history. Martinez pitched two scoreless innings to help nail down the win for starter Lance Lynn, who allowed two runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out five and walked three. Trevor Rosenthal got three outs for his second save in the series.

No big changes in 2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — There were no surprises Tuesday when NASCAR revealed the 2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule because a date swap between Darlington and Kansas had already been announced by the respective tracks. NASCAR did confirm that its track drying system Air Titan will be at all Sprint Cup events next season. If any major changes are coming, it won’t happen until 2015. That’s when NBC takes over the final 20 races of the Cup schedule and NASCAR could have some flexibility with race dates. The 2014 schedule has only two changes: Darlington and Kansas swapped spring dates, and Texas’ spring race went from a Saturday night event to Sunday to avoid a conflict with the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four in Dallas that weekend.

NCMP: Aquagirl varsity wins 200-yard medley, 400-yard freestyle relays Continued from Page 1B swam a great leg, I’m excited for this relay as we head into the end of the season. Our “B” relay fought a great fight to grab that 3rd spot, but just fell short. On paper, their B should have beaten ours by four seconds, but our swimmers drove hard and only lost by 1.78 seconds. Like I said, the whole meet was a tremendous team effort,” Patterson said. The Aquagirls have little time to worry about the loss to Dowling. They turn around and travel to Southeast Polk Thursday. The Aquagirls went first and third in the 200-yard medley relay to open the meet. The team of Jenkins, Sara Martin, Hannah Scotton and Hannah Rhoads won the race with the foursome of Rachel Prendergast, Sierra Griffith, Sarah Prendergast and Emily Miller finishing third. Hedrick and Carly Colville posted personal and season best times in the 200-yard freestyle, placing second and third, respectively. Patterson said both girls swam a smart race and used a strong kick in the final 50 yards. She said the race is an eight-pool lengths sprint and was proud with the way Hedrick and Carly Colville finished the race. Martin and Rhoads clocked personal-best times in the 200-yard individual medley race. Martin finished second and Rhoads was third. “They train so hard for this multistroke event. I really push them during our stroke practices,” Patterson said. Scotton won the 50-yard freestyle in 25.87 seconds. Patterson said the rest of the field battled for second. NCMP’s Jenkins placed fourth in 26.78 seconds. After the 50-yard freestyle race, NCMP led Dowling 32-30. Scotton continued her strong run in the 100-yard butterfly, winning the event with Carly Colville in second place. “All our butterflyers this year have had a workhorse mentality, and are so much fun to coach. They put tons of

meters in butterfly in the pool, and anyone who has ever done this stroke knows that it’s a tough one,” Patterson said. Hedrick powered her way to first place in the 100-yard freestyle race. Rachel Prendergast placed third and “refused to give up and edged out the fourth-place girl by five 100ths of a second,” Patterson said. Patterson said in the 500-yard freestyle, Dowling had a half a dozen girls with times faster than the NCMP girls’ times, but the Aquagirls swam well on the night. Sarah Prendergast was the top finisher for NCMP in fourth with a time of 5 minutes, 54.68 seconds. The Aquagirl quartet of Carly Colville, Rhoads, Scotton and Hedrick won the 200-yard freestyle real in 1:43.57. Miller, Elizabeth Myers, Emily Forsyth and Sarah Prendergast combined for fourth in 1:50.60. NCMP went 2-4-6 in the 100-yard backstroke, led by Jenkins. Rachel Prendergast was fourth, edging out a Dowling swimmer by three 100th’s of

a second. Kaelle Knoll posted a personal-best time of 1:11.51 for sixth. Martin, Rhoads and Griffith swept the top three spots in the 100-yard breaststroke race. “All three of these girls dominated and fired up the crowd and all of our swimmers. Sara has had an unbelievable year, dropping time and showing such poise as a competitor. This group scored a whopping 13 points in this event alone,” Patterson said. “I want to emphasize every single girl on our team gave it her absolute all. There was not one event or one swim that caused this meet to go either way. Every girl left her heart in the pool and I couldn’t be prouder,” Patterson said there were many outstanding junior varsity swims on the night as well. Freshman Willa Colville is having a great season and went a personal-best time of 2:20.70 in the 200-yard freestyle. Brianna Fuller went a personalbest time in the 500-yard freestyle

with a time of 6:35.02. Grace Perrin won her third 100-yard butterfly race and Olivia Maharry keeps winning the junior varsity 100-yard breaststroke no matter the team NCMP faces, Patterson said. Patterson said senior Paige Reed had an outstanding split in the 200yard medley relay freestyle leg with a 28.60. Sophomore and newcomer to the team, Beckah Henry keeps dropping time in the 50-yard freestyle and went a 31. 78 for fifth place. Patterson said all of the junior varsity relay swimmers “put their hearts into their races and there were many good splits.” “We define ourselves way more than our wins and losses — this meet will make us stronger as we head into the home stretch of the season,” Patterson said.

Iowa kicks off tough stretch in Big 10 at Ohio State IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An accommodating schedule and perfectly placed bye week put Iowa in position for a good start. It’s about to become more difficult for the Hawkeyes. Iowa (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) will finish 2013 against opponents who are a combined 25-11, with nearly half of those losses coming from Purdue. The Hawkeyes lost every game they played in the second half of 2012, but they’re confident that the strides they’ve made will help them avoid another collapse. They kick off a grueling stretch on Saturday at No. 4 Ohio State (6-0, 2-0). “We’re just a better defensive team that we were a year ago, and I’d say the same thing about our offense,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “Everything is more cohesive today than it was a

year ago.” Injuries were one of the biggest reasons Iowa finished last season on a six- game losing streak, and the Hawkeyes saw a number of players go down in a 26-14 loss to Michigan State on Oct. 5. This time, it appears as if last week’s bye gave everyone enough time to get healthy. Running back Mark Weisman was among a half-dozen starters who missed time in the loss to the Spartans with various bumps and bruises. Weisman, who is third in the Big Ten with 104 yards rushing per game, was limited to just 9 yards against Michigan State because of a foot injury. Weisman is one of Iowa’s most important players, and he is expected to start on Saturday. He ranks seventh nationally with 126 carries. “Another good defense, another

good test,” Weisman said of the Buckeyes. “We have to worry about us. That’s all we can worry about now.” Wide receiver Kevonte MartinManley, defensive linemen Dominic Alvis and Carl Davis, linebacker Christian Kirksey and offensive tackle Brandon Scherff also have been listed as starters this week after missing snaps during the Michigan State game. Ferentz indicated Tuesday that all those key contributors should play against Ohio State. “We would have been in a little bit of trouble if we would have played (last) Saturday,” Ferentz said. “Fortunately we didn’t.” Iowa might have trouble scoring against the Buckeyes no matter who plays. The offense that hung 59 points on Western Michigan and racked up

nearly three times as many yards as Minnesota was essentially non-existent in the loss to the Spartans. Michigan State’s top-ranked rushing defense took away Iowa’s ability to do anything on the ground, forcing the run-heavy Hawkeyes to throw the ball 46 times. Though Jake Rudock did throw a pair of touchdown passes for a brief 14-10 lead, Michigan State made Iowa’s offense one dimensional and shut it out in the second half. Ohio State is nearly as strong on defense as the Spartans. The Buckeyes are 24th in the country at 19.2 points allowed per game despite a secondary that’s been leaky at times. “You always want to have a good balance,” Rudock said. “It’s good just to mix it up and keep the defense guessing.”

Astrograph Thursday, October 17, 2013

Tomorrow’s full Aries moon and eclipse promise to release some pent-up energy, and with a little planning, you can use that to your advantage. Somewhere in your life is a limit that needs lifting or a wall you’d like to tear down so that you can have more freedom to do as you wish. Come up with a plan to knock away at that limitation tomorrow. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 17). You are swimming in an abundance of easygoing energy for the next five weeks. If you need help, it’s offered. People you encounter have goals that fall right in line with your own. December brings a mutually beneficial business arrangement. January whisks you into someone else’s world. March brings a payoff. Leo and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 1, 3 and 7. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are getting comfortable with your imperfections, so comfortable that

you refuse to see them as imperfect at all. Rather, they are just intriguing quirks that cooperate to make up the whole of who you are. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ve done an excellent job, and yet you’re not getting the recognition you should be getting. If you’re very sly, you can bring attention to your work without making it look like you are blowing your own horn. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You behave differently around certain people. It’s as though you have to tap dance around these people to keep them entertained. Seek the company of people you can relax around. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). The action that feels right to you is right for others, too. The good will you spread quite by accident will bring a giver’s high that inspires your future and more intentional generosity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you are to compete with the best and brightest in your realm, you’re going to need better tools. This is the right time to invest in yourself and in your game.

21). Avoid doing anything to impress that person you admire. This person already finds you interesting and attractive, so doing too much will only ruin the effect.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t want to establish a solid emotional commitment only to discover a few days from now that you’ve changed your mind. That’s why it’s important now to take things slowly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s strange how working on a problem sometimes makes it worse. Don’t stress yourself. Focus on what’s going well, and leave the problem alone for a while. It could disappear of neglect.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes you take the “que sera sera” route and resign yourself to a “what will be will be” attitude -- not today. What will be is what you decide to make happen.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll crack a code of sorts. This likely has to do with a relationship. You’ll figure out what you can give another person in order to get what you need from him or her.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Keep your talk small and happy, and avoid getting overly involved. It’s better to show your support and then carry on with your business than to stick around and risk being dragged into a drama.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s an exciting change in your near future. It’s still unclear how all the parts have to move in order to make this happen, but one thing is clear: Move they will!
