Kathryn Koob routinely had to tell herself, “It could be worse.” For most people, it would be hard to imagine something worse than being held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran, for 444 days. “My captivity, so to speak, ended up being very public, and it was political in nature,” Koob said of being one of the 52 Americans held captive in the Iranian Hostage Crisis. “But what people have to do is look at their own lives. That’s one of the survival tricks that I used.” “For instance, when I really got to feeling sorry for myself, I thought about people that were worse off than I was,” she continued. “For example, I can’t imagine being the parent of a child with a terminal illness. That’s something you can’t

support,” which was something she didn’t have in Iran. She said her imagination and her faith were the keys to her survival. “In many respects, I was alone. Except, I knew that my friends and my family were praying for me and thinking about me,” she said. “I thought about the things they would be doing, their daily routine and that kind of stuff. I imagined them wondering about what I was doing and things like that.” — Kathryn Koob, one of 52 Americans held Koob, who taught at Newton Senior captive in the Iranian Hostage Crisis High School from 1964 to 1968, is returning to her old stomping grounds this change.

Jim Marconi figured one thing out during his two years in the U.S. Army: He doesn’t like the desert. When Marconi was 26, he was drafted into the Army, where he served as an engineer on a base in Texas. The base was in the desert and he said his bunk was often inhabited by critters. One night, he found a scorpion in his duffle bag, which he had been using as a pillow. Marconi got out his trench shovel to kill the scorpion. “I must have beat on that thing for five minutes,” he said. “But I got him taken care of.”

Marconi said copperheads and black widow spiders were also more prevalent and bolder in Texas. Aside from the ails of desert life, Marconi said he enjoyed his time in the service. “Really, I didn’t mind it at all,” Marconi said. “I was adaptable, more or less. It was not a bad duty at

all, as far as I’m concerned. The military is a lot different than it is back then.”

Marconi said some of the changes he’s seen over the years includes higher wages

and a lower tolerance for shenanigans. He said while he was stationed in Texas, some of the men decided to play a joke on another man who was afraid of snakes. They tricked him into thinking a snake had entered his tent and so he took off running, while in the tent, and ran into the field sergeant’s tent. The next day, the man didn’t show up for formation, but luckily some of the other men called his name for him. Marconi said what he liked most about his time in the service was the diversity among the men. MARCONI See Page 5A

New scholastic opportunity for DMACC students Submitted Photo DMACC’s new Honors Program is one of the many ways the college is continually developing new opportunities for its students. Dr. Sarah Waddle serves as the director of the second-year program and provided insight into it.

By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer DMACC is continually looking for ways to enhance the college experience for its more than 25,000 students spread across six campuses and five learning centers. The Honors Program, which is in its second-year, is doing just that. Dr. Sarah Waddle serves as the director of the Honors Program and talked about some of the benefits students can receive from joining. “Financially, academically, and socially, the program offers many benefits to students,” she said. “Honors students receive Honors Program scholarships of up to $1,000 toward their DMACC tuition, both their first and second semesters in the Honors Program. They receive up to $400 their third semester. They can reapply for these Honors Scholarships their second year. “ In addition to the financial savings, the pro-

gram has branched out to partner with one of Iowa’s major universities and is working on a connection with another. “We have developed articulations with the University of Iowa’s Honors Program so that DMACC Honors students can count up to six hours of DMACC Honors credit toward the Honors Program requirements at the University of Iowa,” Waddle said. “We are in the final drafts of a similar articulation with the ISU Honors Program.” The Honors Program was created as a way for DMACC to pay tribute to its high achieving students. This program is open to current and future DMACC students, but there are two distinct ways to sign up. “For currently enrolled DMACC students, we look for a GPA of 3.5 or above, completion of a 100-level math class and a 100-level English class, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member, and an essay,”

Waddle said. Waddle also explained the requirements for a student who wants to join the Honors Program but is enrolling from DMACC directly after high school. “For students enrolling in the program directly from high school, we look for a GPA of 3.5 or above, an ACT composite score of 26, and a letter of recommendation from an instructor,” she said. “We also ask them to write an essay that tells us about themselves and how they believe the Honors Program at DMACC will benefit them.” DMACC’s Honors Program also will benefit those students who don’t plan on pursuing a fouryear degree with additional education benefits directly from DMACC. “Honors Program students have the opportunity to work one-onone with our fantastic DMACC faculty, develop leadership skills that will help them stand out for jobs and graduate school, and are given opportuni-

ties to travel,” Waddle said. “They will also have opportunities to meet and collaborate with other DMACC Honors students from across the district,” she continued. “If students like to have fun, learn a lot, and have opportunities come their way, the Honors Program is a good fit for them.” While this program is still in its infancy, Waddle believes it will continue to prosper, and she and the rest of the DMACC staff are thankful they can offer it to students. “We are very happy to have the Honors Program at DMACC and very proud of what the Honors students and Honors faculty are doing inside and outside of the classroom,” Waddle said. “Every day, the Honors students are working hard to strengthen DMACC as an institution and the communities we serve.” Staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 7923121, ext. 426, or at trushing@

Sex offender was working at school in Cedar Falls CEDAR FALLS (AP) — A 40-year-old convicted sex offender has been found working as a night janitor at St. Patrick Catholic School in Cedar Falls. Investigators discovered the child sex offenses of Michelle Hinde as they looked into several thefts from the school in August. Hinde is being held in Black Hawk County Jail, pending a total of $45,000 on three charges: theft, probation violation and violation

of rules about working in exclusion zones. Online court records don’t list the name of her attorney. Court records say she’s barred from working at schools and childrelated businesses. Hinde was convicted in 1997 of soliciting sex from a minor and in 2004 of lascivious acts with a child. Hinde worked for a private company hired by St. Patrick to clean the building after hours.

So long, and thanks for all the fish When you’re young, you never see yourself as being alone. Until I arrived in Newton, I guess I never saw myself actually living alone. I’d lived with my By Dave Hon parents. I’d lived with Daily News Staff Writer my college buddies. Having my own place was nice, but it did get rather lonely sometimes. Cramming all of my stuff into a U-Haul four months ago seemed like a dream come true. I was finally moving out, away from my parents. What 22-year-old doesn’t want to prove to themselves that they can live on their own? Knowing what I know now, I’d definitely do a few things differently, though. I think there’s a stigma that people have to overcome. If you express that you need your parents, or want them in your life, it’s a sign of weakness when it shouldn’t be. Now I understand that’s not true. As a matter of fact, appreciating your parents as you get older is a sign of growing up. Most teenagers think their mom and dad are old farts who know nothing about nothing. They don’t understand that parents are human too. Everyone is human and as The Cure would say, humans need to be loved. There’s nothing wrong with accepting that love from your parents. Using it as a crutch, sure, but using it to bolster who you are and who you want to be, that’s called being a good child. When I get home the first thing I’m going to do tonight is watch a movie with my father. I’m going to buy a sixpack of beer and watch movies with him until midnight. Then, when we’ve decided that the main character in this bad movie was actually ripped off from a Scorsese film, we’ll move into the kitchen while we discuss our lives. No one discusses like my dad. The next morning I’ll wake up and hug my mom. Sunday, we might watch the Chiefs game. I only plan to live at home for a month, and when I move I’ll only be 30 minutes away, but I plan to make the best of the next month. Once I’m out of the house, I’ll have another apartment. I’ll meet people and become friends with them and I hope I’ll start a life. When it comes down to it, Newton was a cocoon. I had a lot to learn before I moved up here. Paying bills was an interesting lesson. Having a lease was pretty interesting too. Nothing is as interesting as the people I met. As a journalist, you have to appreciate and question people at all times. A little bit of love and paranoia. I can’t shout everyone out that made Newton awesome for me, so I’m just going to shout out the person at the top of the list. Ty Rushing; the biggest Newton celebrity. My editor said something in complete sarcasm the other day, “Cause it’s so horrible being Ty Rushing in Newton.” This town loves you, and you love it.

Cardinal volleyball team wants your support next week against Pella To the editor: Now that I sit here at the computer, I don’t know what to say, don’t know where to start. All I can say is as a parent I’m bursting with excitement and if you get me started talking about the NHS Volleyball team it will be hard to get me to stop. And I so badly want the community to be a part of the team’s accomplishment, to help the team succeed by their support and to experience their success. For those that don’t follow the sports section, the NHS Volleyball team is so close to being conference champions; they are one game away ... and it’s a game against Pella that happens to be held on NHS Senior Night. Pella is 6 - 0 in conference wins

Columnist should have taken Plato’s advice To the editor: In response to Dave Hon’s column Tuesday, Oct. 15, I will first refer to a “Quoteable” by Plato our paper published some time back, which remains on my refrigerator. It reads, “You are young, my son, and, as years go by, time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions. Refrain, therefore, awhile from setting yourself up as a judge of the highest matters.” NHS students’ rights were not violated, and I would have been disappointed — if not angered — had the athletic director and principal allowed then students wearing “BOOBZ” to

Letters to the Editor (ranked No. 12 in Class 4A); Newton is 5 - 1 (ranked No. 15 in Class 4A). If Newton wins Tuesday, the Cardinals become the conference champions. This would be a first for Newton volleyball as the highest they’ve placed is 2nd in the Little Hawkeye Conference. So the reason for this letter is an invitation. I’m inviting you to come out Tuesday night, Oct. 22, at 7:15 p.m. to support the girls ... to show RED PRIDE. At least for volleyball, Pella is known for bringing along a great fan base. I would like to see this for Newton as well. There is nothing more discouraging for a team, especially at a home game, than to see the stands filled with more people in the visitor section. For those that have been coming to the home games (we’ve only had two home conference games up to this point), the girls have noticed. They love it, so thank you. They

love hearing the crowd. It pumps them up; gives them the momentum to keep going if they’ve had a bad run. It’s amazing how the outcome of a game can change in an instant. The crowd is a big part of this; your presence does make a difference. If you haven’t been to or seen a volleyball game in years, you will see it has changed. The games go at a much faster pace. Tuesday night’s game will be a great match to watch. Even if you don’t know the girls personally or aren’t really into sports, come out and support them anyway as they are part of our community and they are great kids. Newton is such a great town to live in and to be a part of. Show them what community support is all about; what Newton is all about. Dawn Bleeker (proud parent and supporter of these girls since they were in elementary school) Newton

continue. Actually, “boob” is a slang term in the dictionary. Slang, meaning “nonstandard vocabulary of a given culture consisting of arbitrary and ephemeral figures of speech characterized by spontaneity and sometimes raciness.” Breast cancer is a very serious matter and whomever initially started the “I love boobies” wrist bands, etc. were taking advantage of a deadly cancer to make themselves a buck. Elementary and younger children, who are at the football games, hear the word “boob” and it is not their first instinct to think of breast cancer. It is “racy” slang word with, yes, sexual exploitation insinuated. Just as there are loopholes in laws regarding language in radio songs and

on TV, we are not winning healthy battles or setting better standards by finding ways to allow raciness and obscenity in public. There are issues of importance to use your skills at — and I do recognize writing skill in Dave’s articles — rather than encouraging young sons to argue their “rights.” I would also suggest our public school officials to refrain from promoting breast cancer awareness and fundraising at K-12 sporting events, as it is opening a whole ball of wax not related to our students’ education, or the sports themselves. How do you now justify turning down every fundraising awareness group out there? Stick to sports and education. Melinda Burgess Newton

The Reading Link

Pondering what ‘control’ really means By Christine Pauley Reading Specialist As I pondered what control means these past weeks I ran across three quotes that struck me about today’s situation. “The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor.” — Hubert H. Humphrey Literacy helps us to recognize that our neighbor is all the people on the earth. I also believe we need to redefine “helping hand.” Iowa farmers may have a better definition than is prevalent today.  When someone is in trouble, they help them get to their feet. They stop helping once they are on their feet. To me this illustrates what Dave Hon said in his October 11th column “Communism works — in the 24th Century.” “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.” Literacy is giving people purpose, mainly because it aids them to reason through their decisions and possibly create their own utopia. The third quote, “Indifferent people get corrupt government; concerned people get honest government; weak people get dictatorships; strong people control their government,” is from “Books of the Bible: A Survey of the Old and New Testaments.” That concept applies to literacy: indifferent people lead to ignorance; concerned people read, discuss and dwell on what they read; weak people need challenge; strong people mentor those who need challenge. Until we as caring parents and volunteers who love children are ready at times to put our own needs either on hold or at times give them up so that we can create first a safe and secure environment conductive to learning for

our children, no educational system or teacher can teach our child well. One thing that I admired about President Truman was his desk sign “The buck stops here.” None of us have all the things, looks, money, powers, or abilities that we want, but we can choose to do the best with what we have. If we are a parent, we have the potential of a child in our hands. No matter where we are in society we affect others and we choose whether we affect them positively or negatively. If a child uses his mental and emotional energies to survive, he has little time or energy to invest in learning. A rewarding part of parenting is that we can provide a successful learning environment whether we are rich, poor, or so-so financially. It does mean we can’t always dwell LINK See Page 5A

Spierenburg Continued from Page 1A She grew up on a farm in Sioux Center and met her husband at Northwestern College. They lived and worked in Teaneck, N.J., where they raised their four boys. Her hard work and compassion has been featured in Parents Magazine as, “A Doctor in the House: This pediatrician, mother and wife of a minister/businessman juggles life around her home office.” When one of Ruth’s sons was in seventh grade, his class was assigned to write a story for a second grade class. Although they chose a different tale, the idea of a children’s book written about the endearing story of Elian Gonsales stayed close to Ruth’s heart. She started following the story closely and the timeless story of love, family and freedom inspired her on a course to write and publish her first children’s book, “Little Lad — A Tale of Love and Liberty.” “I thought what a perfect story. A little 6-year-old who arrives here, clinging to life on a little inner tube and then is rescued on Thanksgiving Day,” Ruth said. “I never knew it was going to take this really sad turn, of course, so I just stopped the book where he’s safely here.” Ruth found the most challenging effort in producing a book was finding an illustrator. With the help of her son, Ruth was able to find an artist to do the illustrations for the book. Little Lad is full of wonderfully detailed and colorful paintings that came from a Spanish man named Dan Keylace who works for her son’s media company in New Jersey. Through many years in the church as a pastor’s wife, Ruth

felt that people respond best to a simple story. Telling the story of Elian’s journey in the format of a children’s book allowed her to get the message out without becoming lengthy. “It’s a story of such courage and bravery, of a boy out alone in the ocean, clinging for life and his mother giving her all to get him to a better land. It epitomizes the story of people in Cuba and all over the world just wanting to be free and wanting a better life for their children,” Ruth said. “I think it’s important for children to know that places like this exist.” Ruth continues to teach children through her work as a pediatrician. She has a tremendous spirit and love for creative writing, drama and humanitarian work. Part of the profits will go to the Lawton Foundation for Human Rights founded by Dr. Oscar Eliaz Biscet Gonzalez, a physician who has been imprisoned and still lives in Cuba continuing his struggle for human rights. The Lawton Foundation promotes the study, defense, and denunciation of human rights violations inside Cuba and wherever the rights and liberties of human beings are disregarded. On Saturday, Ruth will be doing a book signing at Mattingly’s Book Store from 10 a.m. to noon. The book will be available at the store as well. “Little Lad — A Tale of Love and Liberty” is also available for purchase in hard cover at Kid Care MD, 300 N. Fourth Ave. E., paperback at, or as an e-book through Apple. Staff writer Kate Malott may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 422, or at

Skiff Medical Center recognized by the American Diabetes Association Skiff Medical Center is proud to announce they have been awarded recognition from the American Diabetes Association. This distinction is made for programs which provide high-quality education services to patients. The ADA Education Recognition effort, which began in 1986, is a voluntary process which confirms that approved education programs have met the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs. Programs which gain recognition status have a staff of knowledgeable health professionals who can offer leading-edge information about dia-

betes management. Self-management education is a vital part of treating diabetes. Participants complying with the National Standards teach patients the self-care skills they need to best manage their condition and cover topics such as disease process, nutritional management, physical activity, medications, monitoring, preventing, problem-solving and more. Through the support of the health-care team and increased knowledge and awareness of diabetes, patients can assume a major part of the responsibility for their diabetes management. Unnecessary hospital admissions and some of the acute and chronic

Link Continued from Page 4A on what we want. My in-laws were migrant workers, but mom’s house of the moment was spotless and all six children valued work and literacy. The most loving parent can become abusive if he or she doesn’t take steps to avoid it. Some of these steps are: to know ourselves and our personal frustration limits; to deal with our anger and not take it out on others; to walk away if we know we are out of control; and to seek help when we pursued by destructive thoughts. Thought always comes before action. Self-control is when we think through our thoughts before acting, so that we act appropriately towards others. Slapping or hitting because someone acted mean is never appropriate. We are responsible to redirect our thoughts and we have the power to do so. Literacy is a tool that enables us to learn what we need to do and where to go for help. I just finished reading “The Orphan Train” by Christina Baker Kline, a novel about a disgraceful time of our history and how one person overcame the abuse. Abuse isn’t new and it isn’t always intentional. It usually results from a selfish attitude that hurts others and

complications of diabetes may be prevented through self-management education. “We are dedicating to working with our diabetic patients to ensure they become well-versed in their disease,” said Skiff dietitian Jenny Thompson, “and learn how they can best manage it, for both their physical health and their overall quality of life. We are so pleased with this ADA recognition and what it says about our dedication to this important service.” To learn more about the diabetes education services available at Skiff, including one-on-one counseling and support groups, call (641) 791-4303.

often that hurt lasts a lifetime and leads to long term unhappiness for the individual(s) affected and society in general. Almost every parent has felt the frustration when a child cries for hours, and we can’t understand why. Or, when children refuse to do what you ask even after several timely instructions. Or, those times when children act in a way that embarrasses us. No one likes these moments of parenthood, but it is important to realize that: discipline is not when you strike a child in anger — it is abuse; screeching at your child is not an appropriate release for your frustrations — it is abuse. You have the power to abuse your child or others; you also have the power not to abuse them. Power is in the hands of the most powerful. You are more powerful than a crying baby, an irritating toddler, a smart-aleck elementary student, or even a rebellious teenager. If you find yourself feeling uncontrollable rage, or see it in someone else seek help. You deserve help and your child deserves a conducive learning environment. The rewards of a fulfilling relationship with your child, not only benefits your child, it benefits you. Until next week — Christine Pauley

‘Argo’ Continued from Page 1A The film is loosely based on an incident that took place during the Iranian Hostage Crisis and Koob wants to clarify fact from fiction during this presentation. “One of the questions I’m often asked is, ‘How much of this (Argo) is real?’ Koob said. “So what I will talk about is my friends, who were depicted in the film, and their comments about what was going on. I will recommend for people who are more interested that they read Mendez’s book, and I will basi-

cally answer questions.” The book Koob is referring to is “Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled off the Most Audacious Rescue in History,” by former CIA Agent Tony Mendez, who was depicted by Ben Affleck in the film “Argo.” Koob said this presentation will be an open discussion versus a traditional sitting and listening type of speaking engagement. “(This) way, I’m talking about the things that people are interested in,” Koob said. “As a former speech teacher, you can understand, I can talk about anything, anytime, anyplace.

So maybe it should be billed as a conversation.” Koob said she is delighted the Capitol II is holding this conversation and thinks it will help people down the line when they view other historical films. “I think it’s important to talk about these things and what it means when it says that ‘A story is based on.’” Koob said.

the incredible speed and excitement of IndyCar racing back to Iowa Speedway for the next two years,” Iowa Speedway President Stan Clement said. “And we want to thank everyone at Iowa Corn, IndyCar, NASCAR and American Ethanol for making this sensational new event weekend possible.” NASCAR Hall of Famer and Iowa Speedway track designer Rusty Wallace was equally enthusiastic about the new Iowa Corn Indy 300 format. “This is by far the best IndyCar weekend we have ever put together,” Wallace said. “Our race fans will witness the best of both racing worlds with the Iowa Corn Indy 300 and American Ethanol 200 on July 11-12 and, frankly, I can’t wait to see it myself!”

coni was told he could go home but not to unpack because he might be called back in the event of a catastrophe. After his time in the service, Marconi married a woman from Texas and moved back to Newton. Marconi said he and his wife were divorced after a while, but it wasn’t a bad separation. He went

back to work in Newton as a mechanic, and worked for a while at Maytag. He finally settled on work at Manatts. “I really didn’t like the desert down there,” he said. “I really didn’t like the idea that you could be in your back yard and you might be approached by a rattle snake.”

Siblings are hurt by discovery that grandpa plays favorites DEAR ABBY: My sisters and I just realized after comparing notes that our grandfather, who has been giving us an allowance for many years, gives each of us a different amount. We don’t understand why he would do that unless he is playing favorites. Mom says it’s because he’s allowed to give each of us a certain amount per year for tax purposes, but it still doesn’t explain why the amounts are all different. We are a year apart in age, and the differences are substantial. Mom said Grandpa does this with her brothers and sisters, too. Why wouldn’t he give each of us the same amount so that it doesn’t cause hard feelings? I know it’s his money to do with as he pleases and we’re lucky to get any at all, but knowing this has caused hurt feelings. We don’t feel comfortable asking him, but we’d like to understand. What can we do? — LACKING “WHY” DEAR LACKING “WHY”: Having never met your grandfather, I can’t speculate about what his motives might be. While it’s not a good idea to look a gift-grandpa in the mouth, the only way you’re going to get the answers you and your sisters are looking for would be to ask him. However, if you do, make sure to phrase the question in a nonconfrontational way — and be prepared for whatever his answer might be.DEAR ABBY: I am the 49-year-old single dad of an incredible 7-year-old daughter. I have been separated from her mother for four years. Since that time my ex has had a few relationships, one of which produced another child. Three months ago she met a new man and has decided to get married, even though their courtship has been brief. I’m trying to minimize the impact on our daughter, but everything I say to my ex comes across as toxic. Any suggestions? — CONFLICTED FATHER IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA DEAR CONFLICTED FATHER: There is nothing you can do to control your ex’s behavior. But you are right to

try to minimize the impact on your little girl. Do not allow her to be caught in the crossfire of your anger and her mom’s defensiveness. While I, too, question your ex’s judgment in marrying someone she has known for only a short time, there is nothing to be gained by “spewing toxin.” In your interactions with your ex, think before you speak, count to 10 to mellow your tone and focus on the fact that YOU are the stabilizing force in your child’s life. It’s your job to remain strong and steady. DEAR ABBY: I recently broke up with a man I had dated for more than two years. While we were together he gave me many gifts of jewelry. Yesterday when I was dressing to go out, I started to put on a necklace that went with my outfit, then hesitated because it had been a gift from him. I knew I’d be seeing him that evening and that I would be meeting his new girlfriend. Would it have been OK to wear the necklace? Most of the things he gave me were animal-related because he knew I love animals. If someone asks me where I got it, as they often do, what should I say? I don’t want to jeopardize the friendship we have or my potential friendship with his girlfriend. — MIXED UP IN THE SOUTH DEAR MIXED UP: An appropriate answer would be, “It was given to me by a friend.” Your question implies that you decided against wearing the necklace that day, and I think you used good judgment.

Director Bay attacked in HK HONG KONG (AP) — Hollywood director Michael Bay was attacked and slightly injured Thursday on the set of the fourth installment of the “Transformers” movie series currently filming in Hong Kong, police said. A Hong Kong police spokeswoman said two brothers surnamed Mak who own a shop near the movie set approached Bay and demanded 100,000 Hong Kong dollars ($13,000). When Bay refused to pay, they assaulted him, she said. The brothers also allegedly assaulted three police officers who were called to the set. The spokeswoman said Bay suffered a minor injury to his face but declined medical treatment. She spoke on customary condition of anonymity. The two men, age 27 and 28, were arrested and face charges of blackmail, assault and assaulting police officers, she said. “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction” is partly set in Hong Kong. It stars Mark Wahlberg and is to be released next June.

‘Fifty Shades’ fiasco discussed LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC-Universal employees have been told the recasting of Christian Grey in the company’s film version of the erotic best-seller “Fifty Shades of Grey” will be finalized in the next few weeks. A company-wide “town hall” on Wednesday covered a variety of subjects but “Fifty Shades” was the inevitable hot topic in the wake of last weekend’s announcement that Charlie Hunnam was dropping out as Christian Grey, according to an NBC-Universal employee who attended the meeting. The source, who requested anonymity because the meeting was private, also said NBCU officials confirmed “Fifty Shades” will still be released next year and that costar Dakota Johnson remains committed to her role as Anastasia Steele. The meeting was held primarily to introduce Jeff Shell, who is taking over as Universal Pictures co-chairman.

Obama lashes Republicans as government reopens WASHINGTON (AP) — In withering day-after criticism, President Barack Obama declared Thursday that the 16-day partial government shutdown was a Republican-provoked spectacle that “encouraged our enemies” around the world. Elsewhere in Washington, and around the country, federal employees simply streamed back to their jobs. National parks reopened. The popular panda cam at the National Zoo came back online. But there was no letup in the political fight. Fresh from a defeat, tea party groups and their allies renewed fundraising efforts with a promise of future assaults on Obama’s health care overhaul — and a threat of more election primaries against Republican incumbents who don’t stand with them. Government spending was still front and center. Inside the Capitol, lawmakers charged with forging a post-shutdown deficitcutting agreement in the next 60 days met privately. “We believe there is common ground,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., chair of the Senate Budget Committee. Privately, however, officials in both parties said the prospects for a major breakthrough were dim, given differences over taxes and spending that have proven compromise-proof throughout the current three-year era of divided government. A few hours after Obama placed his post-midnight signature on legislation ending the long political showdown, Vice President Joe Biden was at the Environmental Protection Agency to greet returning employees. “I hope this is the end of this,” he said, but he acknowledged “There’s no guarantees.”

That was a reference to the last-minute legislation that will fund the government only until Jan 15 and give Treasury the ability to borrow above the $16.7 trillion limit until Feb. 7 or a few weeks longer. At the White House, Obama blended sharp criticism of Republicans with a plea for their cooperation over the remainder of the year and a call for less shrillness on both sides. “Some of the same folks who pushed for the shutdown and threatened default claimed their actions were needed to get America back on track,” he said in remarks in the State Dining Room. “But probably nothing has done more damage to America’s credibility to the world. ... It’s encouraged our enemies. It’s emboldened our competitors. And it’s depressed our friends who look to us for steady leadership,” he said. Obama said the public is “completely fed up with Washington” and he and Congress face hard work in regaining trust. It was a reference to public opinion polls that show the nation in a sour mood — though more inclined to blame Republicans than the president and his party for the first partial government shutdown caused by politics in 17 years. Hoping to jump-start his own stalled agenda, Obama urged lawmakers to concentrate on three items in the coming weeks: a balanced plan to reduce longterm deficits, legislation to overhaul the immigration system and passage of a farm bill. Polling aside, Obama’s party emerged from the three-week showdown in Congress united. All Democrats in Congress supported the legislation that passed Wednesday night to fund the government and raise the debt

limit. Not so of the Republicans. Eighteen GOP members in the Senate and 144 in the House opposed the legislation, while 27 in the Senate and 87 in the House supported it. The fault line separated tea party adherents from the balance of the rank and file. And there were clear signs the split was enduring, though not widening. In Mississippi, where GOP Sen. Thad Cochran has not yet announced if he will seek a new term in 2014, the Club for Growth and Senate Conservatives Fund were not waiting to find out. They endorsed a potential rival, Republican state Sen. Chris McDaniel, as he announced his candidacy. The groups are among several that have played an increasingly active role in Republican primary elections in recent years, several times supporting tea party-aligned challengers. In some cases — Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, for one — they went on to victory in the fall. In more, they lost seemingly winnable races to Democrats. One survivor of such a challenge, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said during the day that the Heritage Foundation is in danger of losing its clout as a reliable conservative think tank because of the actions of its political arm, Heritage Action. In an interview on MSNBC, he said, “There’s a real question in the minds of many Republicans now. ... Is Heritage going to go so political that it really doesn’t amount to anything anymore?” Heritage Action played an influential role in the two-week political showdown. In the days leading to the impasse, it was a strong backer of the campaign to demand that “Obamacare” be 2167 S. 24th Ave. W., Hwy. 14 S. & I-80 Newton

Hawk girls are SICL champions; boys finish third By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor LYNNVILLE — Racing on their home course at Lynnville’s Diamond Trail Golf Course, Lynnville-Sully’s cross country athletes had a strong finish to the regular season. The Hawks hosted the 2013 South Iowa Cedar League cross country meet Thursday. The Hawk girls were dominant at home. They placed seven runners in the top 12 spots and lifted the 2013 SICL championship trophy. Lynnville-Sully scored 26 points with North Mahaska finishing second with 46 points. English Valleys placed third with 107 points, followed by Belle Plaine with 140, BGM with 166, HLV with 168 and Keota with 216. Belle Plaine’s boys were just as dominant with a conference title win with 37 points. BGM edged out LynnvilleSully for second, 67 to 69 points. Sigourney was fourth with 98 points and Montezuma finished fifth with 151 points. “They added another accomplishment to their great season, and showing why they are one of the better teams in Class 1A,” said Darin Arkema, Hawk head coach. “It’s fun to know that championship trophy can just stay right here at Lynnville-Sully. I’d have to look back to be exact, but I know it’s been a number of years since we’ve been conference champions, either boys or girls.” Lynnville-Sully had seven athletes earn All-SICL honors for finishing in the top 10 in the races. Tara Vos led the Hawk girls, claiming second in 16 minutes, 37 seconds for the 4K race. Alexa Vander Leest came in after Vos in third at 16:49. Cori Rice, who was the defending individual league champion, finished fifth in 17:25 followed by Karli Roozeboom in sixth at 17:27. Elizabeth Van Manen led a 10-11-12 finish by the Hawk girls. Van Manen ran the

course in 18:36 then Kasiah Ehresman crossed the line in 18:50 and Line Ascanius was 12th in 19:01. Ehresman and Ascanius received all-league honorable mention. Megan Goemaat of North Mahaska is the individual champion, running the race in 16:14. Lynnville-Sully’s Alexis Hardenbrook was 18th in 19:46. Kristine Jaennette placed 22nd in 20:06, and Kristy Sevcik was 32nd in 20:54. “Our boys just narrowly missed beating BGM, who they had their sights set on after finishing behind them by 15 points last week at Montezuma,” Arkema said. “Belle Plaine has a strong group of boys and was the favorite coming in. We really thought if we raced well we could jump BGM for second place. It certainly wasn’t because of a lack of effort from our guys, and credit to BGM for also racing well. Lots of the guys ran seasonbest times tonight, which is a boost in confidence for them going into the state qualifying meet next week.” Canyon Kuhlmann paced the Hawk boys. Kuhlmann, who had the highest finish for Lynnville-Sully last year at 11th place, ran second Thursday at home. He made a strong bid for the league individual championship, battling Belle Plaine’s Orie Brown. Brown won the 5K race in 18:04. Kuhlmann was second in 18:09. Ben Trettin was the No. 2 runner on the day for Lynnville-Sully, finishing ninth in 19:33. Talon Woods placed 15th in 20:06, followed by Jake Brand in 20th at 20:32. Luke Jones ran 23rd in 20:32. Nic Lirio finished in 28th at 21:41, Jim Trettin was 35th in 22:46, and Bayley Morvant was 38th in 23:04. Lauri Ryyppo placed 48th in 31:11, Lucas Smith was 49th in 31:40, and Kordell Mueller was 50th in 32:36. HAWKS See Page 3B

Red Sox turn back Tiger rally, take 3-2 Cards move up in 4A rankings lead in ALCS DETROIT (AP) — Mike Napoli’s majestic homer began a rare early Boston breakthrough, Junichi Tazawa again bested Miguel Cabrera in a crucial spot and the Red Sox moved within one win of reaching the World Series by edging the Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Thursday night. Boston returns to Fenway Park with a 3-2 lead in the AL championship series. Game 6 is Saturday with the Tigers’ Max Scherzer facing the Red Sox’s Clay Buchholz. Cabrera was thrown out at the plate in the first inning, halting an early Detroit rally, and he hit into a double play against Tazawa with runners at the corners in the seventh. The Tigers scored a run on the grounder, but it was a trade-off the Red Sox were willing to make. Napoli led off a three-run second with a drive off Anibal Sanchez into the ivy beyond the wall in center field. Detroit’s starters had allowed only three runs in 27 innings through the first four games of the series. After pitching six no-hit innings in Game 1, Sanchez allowed four — three earned — in six innings Thursday. Jon Lester allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings Thursday. He walked three and struck out three, and the Boston bullpen held on to finish off the fourth game of the series to be decided by one run. Down 4-2 in the seventh, the Tigers put runners on first and third with nobody out when Jose Iglesias and Torii Hunter singled. Cabrera, who struck out with runners at the corners against Tazawa in the eighth inning of a 1-0 loss in Game 3, hit a soft grounder to second for a double play this time. Now Detroit turns to Scherzer, a 21-game winner, to try to extend the season. The Tigers will have Justin Verlander ready to pitch Game 7 if there is one.

Mustangs put up fight, fall to Norse By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer MONROE — NFL Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells famously said, “You are what your record says you are.” While that may be true in some or even most instances, records meant nothing on Thursday night, when Prairie City-Monroe’s volleyball team pushed Heart of Iowa Conference foes Roland-Story to the limit. PCM has had some tough luck losses this season, and although the Mustangs did not get a win over the Norse in their final home match of the season, their play was indicative of what they have been working towards, according to first-year coach Mollie Keitges. R-S won in straight sets 25-21, 25-15, 27-25. “I’m really proud of the girls,” Keitges said. “They

played with intensity through most of the match, and that’s a very good team. We played aggressive, which I think is a big, big step for us because sometimes we get timid and back down against those better teams. I’m very proud of them. They played very hard.” R-S opened the match with two straight points before a kill by Lexi Kain put the Mustangs on the board. A Norse kill attempt landed wide to tie things up at two. R-S fought to take a 5-3 lead, and the teams went back and forth for the next few points. Big kills by Abbi Gilson and Courtney Van Houweling kept the Mustangs within two. R-S rallied to take a 12-6 lean, but the Mustangs fought back, scoring four straight points highlighted by a Gilson tip at the net. The Norse put up four

CMB ends regular season with road loss By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer JEWELL — CollinsMaxwell/Baxter’s volleyball team ended its season on a bit of a sour note Thursday night. CMB fell at South Hamilton in straight sets 25-17, 2511, 25-22. The Raiders started off strongly with plenty of energy, according to coach Scott Ranck. CMB was moving and playing well until a few mistakes allowed SH to pull away in the first set. “That carried over into the second set as we never really recovered from that,” Ranck said. “The second set we were not moving, didn’t have good passes, nor have good hits.” Down 8-2 in the third set, Ranck called a timeout. After a side out, CMB scored the next nine points to take a 12-8 lead. Momentum swung to South Hamilton from there, though. CMB missed four of its next five serves, and even though the Raiders fought, they fell 25-22. “We kind of feel that if we hadn’t lost that momentum, we would have won that third set, and who knows what would have happened after that,” Ranck said. “Overall, I was fairly pleased with the performance as some things we hadn’t been doing lately in our matches started to show up again, and that is always a confidence booster heading into tournaments.” Abbie Haupert and Katie Ziesman tied for the team lead with five kills apiece. Alex Hiavacek had three kills. Payge Jurgens and Abbey Applegate had two apiece. Mackenzie Schmitz and Toni Spencer each recorded one kill. Schmitz assisted on 12 sets to lead the Raiders, followed by Applegate’s two. Haupert had two solo blocks. Jurgens went 8-for-8 on servces with three aces. Hannah McWhirter was 5-for-7 serving with two aces. Ziesman was 7-for-8 with two ace serves.

Dustin Turner/Daily News PCM’s Courtney Van Houweling spikes one over the net during the Mustangs’ three-set loss to Roland-Story on Thursday. It was the final home match of the season for PCM.

straight points right back, taking a 16-10 lead, and they carried that momentum to a 20-12 edge. A few tough rallies later, and the Norse had taken a 2213 lead. PCM continued to rally from behind. Cassidy Van Veen was serving when the Mustangs rolled off seven consecutive points to pull within 22-20, but R-S closed out the set, winning 25-21. Errors were the story for the Norse early in the second set. PCM took a 5-3 lead despite not getting a kill. Tied at five, Kayla Jennings logged the first kill for the Mustangs, putting them up one. PCM and R-S traded points with Kain adding a kill in the process to make it 9-8. The Mustangs got behind 17-13, and some strong Norse serves put them up 23-15. From there, they were able to close out the set with a 25-15 win. Set No. 3 had the PCM and the visiting R-S crowds rocking the gym in Monroe. The teams were locked up in a tight one early, and with Kain serving, PCM pulled within two points at 9-7. Down, 12-8 Emma Williams hit a kill followed by a strong serve by Van Veen to make it 12-10. Gilson and Van Houweling brought the team all the way back to tie at 13-13. R-S rallied for five straight, forcing Keitges to call a timeout. PCM came out with a renewed intensity after the break, rolling off four straight points and tying the set on an ace by Jennings. PCM took a 20-19 when R-S went into the net. The Norse tied it back up at 20 on the next point. When R-S took a 22-21 lead, Keitges called for another breather. R-S looked poised

to close out the set, serving up 24-21, but PCM’s crowd would not let the Mustangs quits, spurring on its team to four straight points, serving for the set. Roland-Story’s Anna Himan took over from there, scoring the match’s final three points. Despite the loss, PCM put up a great fight against one of the best teams in the conference, and that fact was not lost on Keitges. “That was a great way to end the conference. From start to finish, we definitely improved and made some big strides. I’m glad they played hard to finish off the conference season,” she said. PCM will end its regular season with a tournament on Saturday in Fairfield. Keitges will expect nothing less than the effort her squad put forth against the Norse. “I just told them to play with that kind of intensity that we played with tonight all day on Saturday,” Keitges said. “Last weekend at our tournament, we lacked that kind of intensity most of the day. So, I challenged them to play with the kind of intensity they played with tonight all day on Saturday.” After that, the Mustangs gear up for the regional match against BondurantFarrar on Oct. 28. “I am looking forward to the regional match. Their coach is actually a good friend of mine, and they’re going to be well coached,” Keitges said. “They’re good volleyball players. He’s got a good club program going. For this group of girls, they’re athletic, and we have certainly improved a lot from the beginning of the year. So, it will be fun to see how we look and how far we’ve come from beginning to end.”

Turner: Show some respect for your opponent Continued from Page 1B below expected levels at your job, you should expect to hear about it. None of that is an excuse to do it. It is still deplorable and wrong. The reason this is far from the same thing is that in one instance you have NFL fans — alcohol fueled, beer-muscle flexing, obnoxious fans. On the other hand you have a high school coach. This is a person whose job it is to teach first and win games second. He or she had an opening in that game to teach, and he or she failed, miserably.

Coaches that I grew up admiring would have been as appalled as I am at those words. High school sports are more fun when you win — everything is — but when you are in a situation where you have the opportunity to express a desire to win or a desire to teach, you should always opt for the latter. Sports bring out the best of emotions and actions in a lot of people: effort, teamwork, communication, unselfishness, drive, etc. It, unfortunately, can also reveal character deficiencies in others. My hope is not only that this coach knows who he or she is and

recognized his or her mistake, but that it also inspires athletes to show sportsmanship over dishonor. You knock someone down? Help them up. A player gets hurt? Take a knee. You lose a game? Shake their hand. Many things are okay between the lines of a competitive field that would be looked down upon otherwise, but human decency is always in-bounds.

Hawks: L-S runners shine on home course Continued from Page 1B “It was a great privilege for us to host the SICL meet this year, especially since our home invitational earlier in the season was cut short by bad weather.

It was a perfect night for running — nice, cool weather, no wind, on a beautiful course,” said Jocelyn Meinders, Eagle head coach. “The kids ran very well. They felt good, and they gave it their all. This is a great meet to end the regular season on before we move into the state qualifying meet.” The Eagle boys finished second with 49 points to Davis County with 23 points. Chariton was third with 99 points. Pella Christian’s girls were third, scoring 83 points. Davis County won the girls’ title also with 26 points, followed by Centervile with 77 points. Jacob Lensing captured the second-place medal in the boys’ varsity 5K race in 17 minutes, 12 seconds. Grant Dunsbergen was sixth in 18:09. Jonathan Beltman edged out teammate Scott Haveman at the finish line, going 10th and 11th in 18:36 and 18:37. Max Shannon placed 20th in 19:28. Samuel Dahm was 24th in 19:41. Jackson Schelhaas finished 25th in 19:55. Meinders said Shannon and Schelhaas ran in a race for the first time this season. Leading the Eagle girls was Marina Shannon, claiming the seventh-place medal in the 4K race with a time of 17:10. Morgan Anderson placed 12th in 17:59. Andrea Carballo finished 17th in 18:20, followed by Damaris Worthington in 20th at

19:16 and Abby Van Soelen in 27th at 20:19. Pella Christian’s girls were without Chloe Dembski for the second meet in a row because of an injury. Meinders said Dembski plans to run in next week’s state qualifier. Brianna Van Donselaar was 10th in 23:45 and Danielle Nardini was 12th in 23:59 in the girls’ junior varsity race. Gabriel Soler led the Pella Christian boys’ junior varsity to second place, finishing sixth in 20:10. Sam Lensing was 10th in 20:58, followed by Zach Shen in 13th at 22:05, Kelvin Ouyang in 14th at 22:25, David Dykstra in 15th in 22:46 and Alek Vink in 16th at 22:48. PELLA CHRISTIAN’S MIDDLE SCHOOL teams won their respective divisions. The middle school runners ran a 1.9-mile race. Lindsay Breon was the individual winner of the girls’ race in 15:21 with teammate Claire Milligan in second at 15:49. Jacque Lensing was fourth in 16:33, followed by Josie TeGrotenhuis in fifth at 16:35, Abby Te Grotenhuis in eighth at 18:38 and Hannah Dykstra in 18th at 28:07. Nathan VerMeer won by “a significant margin” in the boys’ race. He ran the course in 13:16. Noah Van Maanen was fourth in 14:22, followed by Lucas Bandstra in sixth at 14:32, Martin Landazurri in seventh at 14:45, Michael Munoz in 22nd at 17:01 and Sam Carmichael in 23rd at 17:49.

Brace yourself for the roller coaster of the last Mercury retrograde of the year. Sure, there will be ups and downs, but without them it wouldn’t be much of a ride now, would it? This retrograde happens in soulful Scorpio, and so any misadventures during next three weeks will come with the added bonus of bringing us closer to the truth. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 21). You will learn everything you can about your interest until you are an expert and expertly paid, too. Next month brings a personal breakthrough. New friends in December will be frequent companions in 2014. You’ll upgrade your lifestyle in July with a move. September brings a leisurely adventure. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 39, 2, 22 and 15. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How can you heal the spiritual and emotional wounds of the past? As it is with your body, healing happens naturally and can’t be

willed. But you do have to provide the circumstances that are most conducive to healing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your talent is that your honesty encourages others to be honest, too. Those who pretend to be something they are not are only stopping themselves from becoming who they were meant to be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). The people who don’t value your input shouldn’t be allowed to get it. You may have to withhold your efforts in order for the others to feel the loss. Only then will they understand your contribution. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Just because something doesn’t serve the function you want it to serve doesn’t mean it’s broken. Still, you have to move on to find what is going to work for you. Don’t wait. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re an excellent friend. You can help some-

one who is having trouble drumming up his or her own sense of high worth. You will point out what this person cannot see.

are just the kind of obstacles that bring people together. You’ll need a favor to clear the path and get where you want to go.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Must you always go out of your way to make a relationship work? Shouldn’t friendship be easy sometimes? Questions along these lines will run through your mind as you repeatedly serve a certain person.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). For things to go well with your team, each person must be well suited to the job they’ve been assigned. You may need to shift some of the responsibilities around. Experiment today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Have you ever considered a treadmill desk or a ball chair? All it takes is one slight adjustment to your working style to make a considerable difference in your health, well-being and productivity. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It would be dangerous to assume you’ve arrived at a correct conclusion. It’s better to stay aware and assume that no answer is 100 percent correct. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are a few bumps and blocks in the road, but these

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll get a surge of creative fuel midday that you can use to drum up some fun with another creative person. Let playfulness rule, and there will be practical applications for what you come up with, too. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You know whom you like and trust, but can you really call someone who does nothing to help you an ally? Put relationships to the test. People want to be useful to you. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
