Councilors face tough decisions about Housing Initiative By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor The six members of the Newton City Council have a lot of decisions to make between now and when it is asked to take up the Newton Housing Initiative at its Nov. 4 meeting. Monday’s marathon meeting, lasting two hours and 41 minutes, did so largely because of council discussions about the initiative. Councilors were divided on a number of aspects of the plan, although

there appeared to be a consensus that most were supportive of the initiative in general. City Administrator Bob Knabel gave a brief presentation on two major aspects of the initiative that he said required discussion before proceeding: funding and implementation. He asked the council to provide him with a consensus of whether or not city staff should continue to work on the project afterward. Following several lengthy discussions and open disagreements about various aspects of the proposal, councilor Noreen

Otto told Knabel she thought he should bring it to the council for action at the Nov. 4 meeting. Funding Discussion The price tag for the Housing Initiative, as currently proposed, is $3.65 million. There was discussion about whether or not certain components were necessary, whether or not certain components were COUNCIL See Page 5A

If you or someone you know has been a victim of domestic violence, tonight the Ottumwa Crisis Center will afford you the opportunity to pay tribute by hosting a candle light vigil in the parking lot of the United Way of Jasper County. The United Way of Jasper County is located at 312 First Ave. W. and the vigil will start at 6 p.m. Pamela Romaine, the OCC advocate for Jasper County, gave some more background on the event. “October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. During this time we try to have events that will help raise awareness to the problem of domestic violence,” Romaine said. “We anticipate it lasting 30 to 45 minutes. The United Way has graciously offered to host this event in their parking — Pamela Romaine, lot, weather perOttumwa Crisis Center mitting. Otheradvocate for wise, it will move Jasper County into the United Way’s conference room.” Romaine expects this event to stir up a lot of emotions for those who attend. “One of the real heartfelt parts of a domestic violence vigil is that we read small snippets about individual victims who have lost their lives to domestic violence right here in Iowa,” Romaine said. One such incident took place in Newton on Oct. 9, 2010. According to records, Jay Dee Mack, a Newton resident, was alleged to have shot his girlfriend Angela Ancer, also from Newton, to death. Mack was found guilty of the crime on July 20, 2011, and was sentenced to 50 years in prison on Aug. 8, 2011. This event is not the only thing OCC has done to help spread awareness on domestic violence issues. OCC helped spur Newton Mayor Mike Hansen to formally declare October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the city. “Having the mayor sign a declaration declaring October Domestic violence Month is awesome,” Romaine said. “I cannot express enough the importance of having this community work together to provide services that insure the safety of domestic violence victims. Domestic violence victims need advocates, law enforcement, legal services, service providers and medical care working together to fight this cause.” OCC covers 11 counties and Romaine not only represents Jasper County in the organization, but she is a Newton resident, as well. She said her job as an advocate is to provide victims one-on-one counseling, medical advocacy, man the 24 hour crisis line, make referrals, and provide information.

studies. “Maybe I can work for [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services], and I can help others get their citizenship,” Svitlana said. “I’m excited to vote too… I’ll vote in this election, but I’m looking forward to voting for the President.” Svitlana is part of the Young Professionals of Jasper County and serves on the board for the Organization Promoting Everlasting Neighbors, which helps to foster the relationships between Newton and its sister cities of Smila, Ukraine and Wu Chi, Taiwan. She has also been invited to Project AWAKE, a group that works with the Arboretum along with other natural improvements around the community. With her civic-minded attitude as well as her past and future in community service, Svitlana fits well into Thomas Jefferson’s vision: “A nation, as a society, forms a moral person, and every member of it is personally responsible for his society.”

No magic switch was flipped, and Svitlana Miller doesn’t really feel any different, aside from being excited and a little bit relieved, but after a four-year application and waiting period, she can finally call herself a citizen of the United States of America. Surrounded by her friends and family, as well as 31 other new citizens from 22 different countries, Svitlana swore to renounce her allegiance to Ukraine, support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States against all enemies, bear true faith and allegiance to the same and serve her new country as required by the law. As she was called forward to receive her Certificate of Citizenship, she was met with resounding applause and cheers from her family. “I’m really excited for her. It’s been a long process and we’re glad that this is finally it,” said her husband, Zach Miller. Svitlana moved to the

United States with her mother, Mariya Dovganyuk, eight years ago after her sister had a child. Mariya wanted to be closer so that she might help raise her grandchildren, so they moved to Iowa. Svitlana graduated from Pella Christian High School and enrolled in DMACC, where she met her husband. The pair were married in March of 2009. Soon afterward, Svitlana applied for her citizenship and has since been waiting through the process as well as conducting numerous interviews and tests. In that time she has finished her associates degree at DMACC as well as obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Central College. Now she works as an academic advisor for Buena Vista University while pursuing her master’s degree at Drake. One of the benefits of her new status is that she can now work in a government position, which she hopes to do after completing her

Jasper County Historical Society to meet Sunday The Jasper County Historical Society will have its annual meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Jasper County Museum. Members and the public are welcome to attend the free event. The museum is located at the intersection of Highway 14 and I-80.   Following a short business meeting, a reader’s theater group, the Jasper Anecdocents, will provide the program. Anecdotes are short and amusing or interesting stories about real incidents or people. Docents are people who act as guides, typically on a voluntary basis, in a museum, art gallery or zoo. The two words were combined to create the group’s name.  The mission of the Jasper Anecdocents is to tell Jasper County history through delightful stories found in letters, diaries, memoirs, scrapbooks, obituaries and newspaper articles. The hope is that the audience  will be inspired to pause to record the stories important to them in hopes that someday the stories may be passed on to families, friends and neighbors.

Enrollment in Quitline Iowa
offers eight weeks of free replacement therapy to help people quit smoking The Iowa Department of Public Health is expanding the free nicotine replacement program launched earlier this year for Iowans who enroll in Quitline Iowa. Any participant enrolling in the no-cost program could be eligible for twice as much nicotine replacement therapy — eight weeks instead of four weeks. “We believe this change offers Iowans who need help quitting smoking or using smokeless tobacco a greater incentive to enroll in Quitline Iowa,” IDPH Director, Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks

said. “The longer an individual has access to NRT, the more likely they are to stay tobacco free. It’s hoped that by expanding access to nicotine replacement patches, lozenges or gum, those struggling with withdrawal symptoms will be more likely to succeed in quitting for good.” Iowans can take advantage of the program by calling 1-800-7848669 or visiting www.quitnow.net/ iowa to enroll. The program offers access to a trained Quit Coach® who will help develop a quitting plan and determine which NRT

Write On

The time I spent two days with five farmers The past few weeks, I’ve been working on a project for our Central Iowa AG Magazine that comes out the first week of November. My assignment was to interview five area By Kate Malott farmers about the Daily News Staff Writer harvest, their expectations, this year’s growing season and how it compared to years past. I had put it off, which was a terrible idea, but I did. I’m not sure why I was hesitant, but it probably had to do with assuming it was going to be challenging. It wasn’t the greatest season for farmers, you know. In fact, I put it off so long, I forgot about it. What farmer would want to take the time to talk to a young city girl during harvest and have their photo taken? I had to find five, and I did. What I found out was that this year’s obscene weather, from snow in May to drought in August, caused for an unusual season, but that farmers are strong. They’re mentally and physically prepared to adapt and adjust to any situation without complaints. I also found this assignment to be the one of the most personally rewarding assignments this year. I went to five farms in two days and met with five accommodating, kind and generous hard working, intelligent men. The farms were north of Newton, south of Newton, south of Baxter, east of Kellogg and north of Sully, and they were gorgeous. I met relaxed farm dogs, road around in trucks and tractors and stood on a field being harvested. I felt like a kid on a field trip again, except this time I arranged the trip and I was alone. The travel alone had filled my soul with appreciation, pride and nostalgia. One of the farmers invited me into his truck because it was warm and we went on a land tour. We talked about the untimely passing of someone we both knew, which led us to open up about life and even more personal losses. I shared with him the passing of my father when I was four and he told me about the sudden death of his 18-yearold granddaughter, one who he didn’t get the chance to say goodbye to before being coma induced. While reflecting, he said something I’ll never forget. “Not being able to say goodbye is hard. That’s why we ought to be doing it every day.” Words like these are lessons that we can only learn through experience. It’s the outcome of a flood of pain and heartbreak. It was the truest, sincerest quote I heard from anyone in awhile. After the interview, I left that farm feeling so enriched and satisfied beyond any expectations. The other four farmers I met were just as insightful, interesting and open, and I thought to myself, ‘Why did I put this assignment off again?’ Sometimes, life surprises you, and if you’re lucky, it will be in ways that inspire you to learn more, live more and love more.

People who have survived the loss of a loved one to suicide have found help by turning to others who have been through the same experience. Every year, there is a conference on suicide grief and loss where you can find comfort and hope, learn how others have coped and discover you are not alone. This is an event for men and women and many young people join us each year, as well. The Central Iowa Survivors of Suicide Conference will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 at the Des Moines University Student Edu-

cation Center located at 3300 Grand Ave. in Des Moines. This is a free event, and a free lunch will be provided. Register at www. dmu.edu/event/survivor. For more information, call (515) 323-3205.

Common Sense

I’m sorry I think we can all agree that we all have the occasional “bad day” at work. For most folks, the impact of those bad days is relatively limited. I don’t have that luxury. When I have a bad day, you probably all see the end result, even if you don’t realize it’s my bad day to blame. But By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor they do happen, and they tend to happen more often than I would like (I mean, seriously, who wants to have a bad day?). Such was the case a little more than a week ago when former Daily News reporter Dave Hon came into my office to speak with me about something that bothered him about the previous Friday night football game in Newton. I freely admit I gave him the green light to look into those concerns and to write about them. That decision was based on very bad information. Had I done my own due diligence, I think I probably would have discovered the problem before it became a bigger one. But, I gave Dave wider lattitude than I should have. The beauty of hindsight is that it is almost always perfect, especially when you use your missteps as learning opportunities. In this case, I have. Had I known then what I know now, I can assure you Dave Hon’s column of Oct. 15 wouldn’t have appeared in the Daily News. It could be easy for some, I suppose, to try to deflect the blame and say, “Well, if the school officials we spoke to would’ve...” But, that’s not the kind of newsroom I think we should be operating at the Daily News. When we screw up, we should take responsibility for it. And, when it comes to the happenings of the newsroom, the buck stops right here.

Moreover, even if what I believed to be true at the time Dave’s column was published really was, that column still shouldn’t have run. The tone in which it was conveyed is not the tone we expect of others who write to the opinion page, and it frequently painted with a wide brush, based entirely on an isolated event. That column did run, though, and I can’t change that. All I can really say is that I’m sorry it did. All too often, people in places of public trust give their mea culpa when in fact they’re only sorry they got caught. That’s not the case here. No one told me to write my column on this subject. I do so freely because it’s the right thing to do. I’m not sorry because it offended people. I’m not sorry because it made people angry. I’m not sorry because it damaged our credibility in the eyes of many. I’m not sorry because of any of that. I am sorry all those things happened, but I’m saying “I’m sorry” because I failed to do my job. I failed to hold our staff to the same standards we try to hold everyone else up to. I failed to be an effective newsroom leader that day, and others suffered as a result. Bottom line: I’m sorry because I let all of you down. I don’t expect this column to make it “all better.” Not by a long shot. But my hope is that you will continue to observe that what I’ve written here today aren’t just words on a page. There is action behind them. You will not see a column of that sort appear in this paper or any other for which I am editor. You will see our staff conduct themselves in the same manner in which we expect others to conduct themselves. And if they have a problem with that, you can be assured I will deal with it swiftly. I won’t let you down like this again.

As has become a bit of tradition, I had a “friendly wager” going with former Des Moines Register “Iowa Boy” columnist — and my good friend — Chuck Offenburger. Chuck is a Shenandoah alumnus. I’m a former Clarinda resident. The wager: if Shenandoah wins, I write a guest column for Offenburger.com. If Clarinda wins, he will write a guest column for the Daily News. Clarinda won, 42-0. So, be on the lookout for Chuck’s guest column in the near future. I believe he’s trying to flesh out some topics that would be of interest to folks in Newton and Jasper County as we speak. ••• If you’re reading this, thank a teacher. if you’re reading it in English, thank a soldier, sailor, airman or Marine.

Council Continued from Page 1A appropriate, and whether or not certain components were properly funded in the proposal. Regardless of how the final Housing Initiative proposal looks before councilors vote on it Nov. 4, Knabel said there were three ways in which the city could pay for the program. They were: • Use of existing city revenue -- If they go with this funding option, councilors must find approximately $1.22 million per year for the next three years to divert from existing city functions, services and payroll to cover the cost of the Housing Initiative. To do this, 11 percent of existing city employees would have to be laid off. • Use of new city revenue -- If they go with this funding option, councilors would need to generate approximately $1.22 million per year through new taxes and fees. The bulk of it would come from a proposed 5-percent franchise fee Knabel said is hoped to be used for street improvements and existing staffing needs. • Use of the city’s existing debt capacity -- The City of Newton has a calculated debt capacity of $41.2 million, of which a little more than $19 million is currently being used. Taxpayers currently pay $1.04 per $1,000 valuation of their property to service that debt. General obligation bonds could be sold to cover the full amount of the proposed Housing Initiative cost. Knabel said he felt bonding for the cost of the program would be the most reasonable

Blotter Continued from Page 3A • James M. Johnson, 50, of Newton was charged with pubic intoxication after authorities responded at 5:19 p.m. Sunday to three complaints of a person sitting on the side of the road in the 300 block of West 10th Street North with a bicycle yelling at those passing by. Johnson showed signs of intoxication but stated he could not perform sobriety tests because he has a prosthetic leg. After learning he would placed under arrest, Johnson became belligerent and yelled profanities at the officer. He was taken to the Jasper County Jail. • Anthony E. Ortiz, 23, of Elgin, Ill., and Angel M. White, 31, of Woodstock, Ill., each were charged with possession of more than one-half ounce of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of more than 42.5 grams of marijuana without a drug tax stamp after authorities stopped them at 9:16 p.m. Sunday at the 166 mile marker on Interstate 80 for speeding. White, the driver, and Ortiz, the passenger, had conflicting stories about their travels. A Jasper County deputy

means of setting the program in motion. He recommended selling general obligation bonds with 10 year terms over the other options. “If $1,200,000 were to be taken from the current budget to be used for the housing initiative, approximately $1,000,000 would be needed from personnel. That translates to about 13 employees, or about 11 percent of the current staff,” he said. “It would be the hope of the staff that [franchise fee] funds could be used for major street maintenance and additional staffing capacity.” There are two ways in which the added debt could be serviced, which led to additional discussion and disagreement among councilors. One way would be to maintain a relatively flat debt service levy. Using this option, more interest likely would be paid, and the bulk of the bonds would be paid off as earlier bond issues were paid off. The second option would be to add the actual cost of the bonds to the debt service levy, and have the levy rise and fall as bond issues were added or paid off. This option would likely result in less interest paid, but would mean taxpayers must pay more up front out of pocket. The first option would result in a debt service levy rate of $1.07, unless more bonds are sold, until 2024. The second would result in a debt service levy rate of $1.46, unless more bonds are sold, that would fall over time as earlier bond issues were paid off. The rate would drop to 42 cents in 2020 and fall to zero in 2024. Implementation Discussion As with the funding for the

Housing Initiative, councilors must choose between an array of options for implementation. Those options are: • use existing staff • hire additional city staff • contract for the services In this discussion, the council appeared to have much greater consensus that it was having difficulty agreeing to hire a new city staff member to implement the program. “If you decide to have existing staff handle these duties, I’m going to tell you now you’re going to have to tell them what you want them to stop doing to make room for it,” Mayor Mike Hansen said. “I’m in here frequently, and there isn’t a time that I see them without something to do.” As the Housing Initiative is currently proposed, the following functions would need to be fulfilled: • Coordinating the Housing Initiative overall • Administering the Dangerous & Dilapidated Housing Program • Administering the Abandoned & Dilapidated Housing Program • Administering the Lowto-Moderate Income Housing Program • Administering the Grants for Grads Program • Developing guidelines for buyer, builder and property owner incentives • Facilitating property subrogation for owners and builders • Marketing the Housing Intiative programs • Assisting with property acquisition needs • Serving as director for the Newton Housing Development Corporation

later ran a K-9 unit around the vehicle and indicated narcotics were present. Authorities located marijuana, and Ortiz and White were arrested and taken to the Jasper County Jail. White also was cited for speeding. • Dezmond L. Rogers, 17, of Newton was charged with public intoxication, interference with official acts and minor in possession of tobacco (second offense) after authorities observed two men — one without a shirt in 42-degree weather — walking and smoking at 10:52 p.m. Saturday in the 100 block of North Second Avenue West. One did not appear to be the legal age, and officers stopped to investigate. Rogers stated he was 18 years old, refused to provide any other information and began causing a scene, according to police reports. He also smelled of alcohol and was taken to the police department, but he refused chemical testing. Authorities determined Rogers had a valid juvenile detention order, and he was transported to Eldora by a Jasper County deputy. • Jordan M. Sexton, 17, and Byron A. Sharp, 17, both of Newton, were charged with fifth-degree theft after authorities responded to a shoplifting

Disadvantages included: • The city will be paying the “profit margin” for the company. Businesses will be covering its costs, plus charging an amount for profit. • The selection of the employee serving the city may not be made by the city council. The city may have little say over who that employee will be. The employee may be assigned to the city as an account by the company such that the city has no choice in the matter. • Initially there may be some concern about loyalty and commitment to the City of Newton, especially if the company is working for other communities and they know this contract is for a short duration. Newton may end up playing “second fiddle” to other clients. • Control and timeliness ofthe work product can be an issue. • The unit costs for the contracted service may be higher than the hourly cost of the employee. Because the companies have to cover not only all personnel costs and all operating costs, it also has to cover its profit margin. Knabel also demonstrated how, based on the unit costs, the city would either pay more or receive fewer hours if contracting for the services. Councilors noted they have had a number of requests for additional staffing from several departments. Most said they were troubled by the notion of hiring a full-time city employee for what may be a short-term position.

Roush, all 16 and residents of Newton, were charged for allegedly stealing 10 bottles of alcohol with a total value of $32. They were referred to juvenile court services. • Three men — 32-year-old Jayson R. King and 23-year-old Joshua D. Jiron, both of Newton, and 21-year-old James A.P. Freerks III of Laurel — all were charged with public intoxication after authorities were dispatched at 12:48 a.m. Sunday to 7 Cardinal Court for a fight in progress. The men appeared to be intoxicated and were taken to jail. A chemical test indicated at .162 BAC for King. Jiron passed out and vomited at the jail and was unable to request or waive a chemical test. Freerks banged his head on the inside of the squad car several times while being taken to the jail and kicked an officer. He was not offered a chemical test and was additionally charged with interference with official acts causing injury.

Knabel said guidelines and procedures need to be developed for each of the programs and forms and documentation created. He said the programs will need to be advertised and promoted and safeguards put in place in order to ensure guidelines are met and the Housing Initiative is achieving its goals. He said it was his hope the program administrator could also address the implementation needs of the Retail Initiative and the Buxton Report. He strongly recommended hiring a full-time staff member with a salary of between $44,572 to $65,074. Knabel was able to find ways within the current budget to fund the position as early as December. He also outlined the advantages and disadvantages of contracting out for the services. Advantages included: • Extended employee benefits costs are not assumed by the city. The city will be paying for benefits through the contract, but the employee will not be on the city’s payroll. • If not satisfied with the services, the contract is easier to terminate than an employee. • The city may not have to cover overhead costs or office space for the employee. The contracted amount may include costs for utilities, copiers, telephone, etc. • The depth and breadth of the organization that has the contract may be of value. As with Brick & Gentry, the company may have multiple staff that can work on a city issue, thus bringing greater experience to the solution. And, their expertise may be greater initially.

Divorcee longs for fair-tale proposal on bended knee DEAR ABBY: I am a divorcee in my 40s who is in a committed relationship with a man who is also divorced. Neither of our marriages were happy ones. We stayed in them for all the wrong reasons. We have been together for three years, live together, love each other unconditionally and have talked extensively about getting married. My question is, am I wrong to expect a traditional proposal with an engagement ring? It is important to me that he would think enough of me to plan one. I feel if he did it for his first wife, he should do the same — or more — for me. Would it be in bad taste to mention this? — ASKING TOO MUCH? IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR ASKING TOO MUCH?: Unless one of your companion’s attributes is clairvoyance, express your feelings. He may not be aware that you would feel somehow cheated if he doesn’t come forth with a gesture that is “equal or better” than what his ex received. Consider carefully what resulted from that first fancy proposal. An essential ingredient in a successful relationship is the ability to express one’s wants and needs to the other partner. I would only suggest that when you do, your thoughts are couched as a request and not a demand. DEAR ABBY: Enlighten me, please. A friend told me her daughter is expecting. She has not said one word about a boyfriend or marriage. How do I diplomatically ask, “Who is the father?” People in my generation already knew the answer. Marriage came first. Is this now “none of my business”? The grandma-to-be has offered no clue. Can you help me out? — OUT OF THE LOOP OUT WEST DEAR OUT OF THE LOOP: If Grandma-to-be is keeping mum, you can bet there’s a reason. If the father was Prince Harry, she would be trumpeting it from the rooftops. Your friend may not know who the father is or have some

other reason for not disclosing it. Unless you want to tiptoe through a minefield, my advice is DON’T GO THERE. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 13-year-old girl who suffers from what I’m afraid is obsessive-compulsive disorder. I have known for four years, but I never told my parents. I finally opened up to them a few days ago, and I thought they wanted to help. But later I heard them mock my condition and laugh about it. Abby, I thought my parents wanted to help me, but it’s becoming clear that they don’t. They have offered me therapy, but I’m scared they will mock me for that, too. Now I’m afraid to go. Should I? — O.C.D. DAUGHTER DEAR DAUGHTER: When people don’t understand something, unfortunately they sometimes laugh at it. However, are you absolutely certain that what your parents were laughing about concerned you and not something else? I find it hard to believe that loving parents would laugh at their child’s discomfort. You should by all means take them up on their offer of talking to a therapist. It is the surest way to find a solution for your problem. And when you do, tell the therapist you think you heard your parents laugh about your problem, because if it’s true and they are not aware of how serious the problem may be, the therapist can explain it to them.

ously, maybe we can get some local momentum for more by folks sending in their photos,” she said. “If they’d like to send the Newton CVB their photos electronically, we’d be happy to make sure they are in the correct format when submitted and act as a contact, as well, if desired.” IDCA spokesman Jeff Morgan said the state is looking for Iowans who have a home or a property that could be featured in a movie, or a scenic view or a vista that might be appropriate for a film production. The photos submitted will be placed into a Media Production Directory at its website, www.produceiowa.com. There is no cost to submit photos. “This is actually to build an online media directory that can be available to production companies from California and all around the world 24 hours a day for them to see what Iowa has to offer in terms of site locations,” Morgan said. He said producers aren’t looking only for

farmsteads, but may be attracted to any Iowa homes, unique buildings or entire main streets or downtowns that can be featured. He also provided the following tips for submitting photos: • use a digital camera, • each photo should be no larger than 1 megabyte, • title each photo, • no more than 10 images per property, • include distinct features, and • use a wide-angle lens or landscape view. Additionally, Morgan said, Produce Iowa is requesting submissions about Iowa’s media production workforce and support service companies. He said local talent, production crews and hospitality businesses like hotels, restaurants and caterers should register their services to help round out the directory.

Mission Foundation CEO announces retirement Special to the Daily News ASHEVILLE. N.C. — Former Newton resident Bruce D. Thorsen, president and CEO of Mission Foundation for the past 23 years, has announced his pending retirement. Thorsen, a native of Newton and a 1965 graduate of Newton Senior High School, joined Memorial Mission Foundation in September 1990 after serving hospitals in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids for over 20 years. Mr. Thorsen has been in the healthcare philanthropy field for nearly 45 years. He is a graduate of Drake University, Des Moines. During his tenure at Mission, the Foundation has raised and given to Mission Hospital more than $150 million dollars according to John Kimberly, current chair of the Foundation Board of Trustees. “Bruce has been a tremendous asset not only to Mission but to our broader community as well,” said Kimberly. “He was a leading advocate for creating the WNC NonProfit Pathways organization that today serves all nonprofits in our region, and he was a founding member of the local Association for Fundraising Executives (AFP) chapter in Asheville in the early ‘90’s.” Thorsen was named Outstanding Fund Raising Executive in 2001 by the AFP chapter. “Bruce’s leadership at Mission has resulted in a number of key programs and facilities being directly linked to philanthropic support,” said Ronald A. Paulus, MD, president and CEO of Mission Health. “As just one example, without Bruce’s vision and perseverance there would be no ToothBus program – a service that has helped more than 20,000 Western North Carolina children receive necessary dental care without cost at their home schools.” Paulus continued saying: “the Foundation has sent hundreds of Mission bedside nurses to national continuing education conferences so that they could return with stateof-the-art care plans that have

touched the lives of thousands of patients.” “Bruce lead the effort to build the Reuter Children’s Outpatient Center in 2002 and raised the necessary resources such that the 70,000 square foot building was entirely funded by charitable gifts and grants, opening debt-free in 2006,” said Paulus. Thorsen’s recent projects include guiding the Foundation’s successful $15 million campaign for the new SECU Cancer Center and working to secure funding to upgrade and expand the MAMA air ambulance program. “His legacy at Mission will be visible for many years to come,” indicated Kimberly. “His work and dedication have helped Mission gain its national status as a Top 15 Health System and a Top 100 hospital.” A search committee of Foundation trustees, hospital management and community representatives are already at work to identify his successor. There will be an overlap of several months with Thorsen likely stepping down in early 2014 according to Kimberly and Dr. Paulus. The Mission Foundation has solicited and received more than $150 million in gifts and grants from all parts of Western North Carolina, the state and the Southeast as well as nationally.

Healthy and happy Halloween fun Emily Ring Dietitian, Newton Hy-Vee

tles, if you are going to offer healthier treats, make up for the lost sugar by upping the fun factor! Here are a few suggestions for a frightfully delicious (and nutritious) Halloween-themed meal that kids and adults can agree upon. To help the kids fill half their plate with fruits and vegetables, let them dunk a few fresh vegetables in Critter Crostini. Research shows that when kids are offered vegetables with an accompaniment (like cheese, dip or salad dressing), they enjoy the vegetables more and will consume a greater quantity and variety of vegetables. Go ahead and give in to their sweet tooth by making Frozen Banana Ghosts. Fruit .......makes a great side dish, dessert or snack, as the natural sweetness can satisfy sweet cravings while also providing important nutrients, like potassium, vitamin C and fiber. With such a healthy menu, there certainly is room to round out the meal with dessert. This is the perfect opportunity to explain that when the majority of our food choices are healthy, there is room in a balanced and healthy diet for a yummy choco-

With Halloween just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get the kids together for some spooky, fright-filled baking and cooking. Of course, Halloween is known to be a sugar-laden candy fest, and this is a perfect opportunity to talk to your kids about moderation and healthy eating. Halloween, and all its fabulous chocolaty, gooey, rot-your-teeth sweetness is a once-a-year occasion. Use this opportunity to talk to your kids and explain to them that candy, like many of our other favorite treats, is a “sometimes” food. “Sometimes” foods aren’t foods we eat every day because they don’t give our bodies the nutrients we need to grow and stay healthy. We enjoy “sometimes” foods on occasion, and because we enjoy them only once in a while, it makes them that much more special. Now, nobody wants to rain on any kid’s candy parade but not all Halloween treats have to be extremely sugar-laden. To keep things kidfriendly and ward off any candy bat-

late treat, like spooky Halloween cupcakes! Don’t be afraid this Halloween season to let the kids “be kids” and enjoy the sweet holiday. Teach them a few things about moderation and a balanced diet and get them involved in Halloween treat-making. Research shows that kids are more likely to try foods they helped to make, so get their hands involved in something Halloween-themed and fun, but also something nutritious and delicious! For the full version of the recipes mentioned above, please go to Hy-Vee.com. Candy Corn Parfaits Serves 4.

Lead Poisoning Prevention Week Oct. 20 - 26 Stephanie Alexander Skiff Medical Center, Director of PR and Marketing

vention, Jasper County Public Health Nursing, along with CDC, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, is participating in National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) Oct. 20-26. This year’s NLPPW theme, “Lead-Free Kids for a Healthy Future,” underscores the importance of testing your home, testing your child, and learning how to prevent lead poisoning’s serious health effects. In observance of NLPPW, events such as state proclamations, lead-awareness community events, and educational campaigns will be conducted nationwide. The Jasper County Lead Poisoning Prevention Program plans to distribute coloring books about lead poisoning prevention to child care centers throughout the county. Healthy homes booklets are being distributed to child care providers. Parents can reduce a child’s exposure to lead in many ways. Here are some simple things you can do to help protect your family: • Get your home test. Before you buy an older home, ask for a lead inspection. • Get your child tested. Even if your young children seem healthy, ask your doctor to test them for lead. • Get the facts! Your local health department can provide you with helpful information about preventing childhood lead poisoning. Contact Public Health at Skiff Medical Center at (641) 792-5086 or call 1-800-424-LEAD.

Nearly half a million children living in the United States have elevated blood lead levels that may cause significant damage to their health, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Major sources of lead exposure to U.S. children include lead-based paint and lead-contaminated dust in deteriorating buildings. Children can also be exposed to lead from contaminated drinking water, take-home exposures from a workplace, lead in soil, and other sources. Lead poisoning can severely affect mental and physical development. At very high levels, lead poisoning can cause death. Despite the continued presence of lead in the environment, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. In Iowa, the prevalence of lead poisoning among children younger than age six years is 7 percent. This is more than four times the national average of 1.6 percent. The state recommends that all children have lead levels done at 1 year of age and again at 2 years of age; a higher frequency is recommended in high-risk children. It is important to make sure that these lead levels are being done, so that the source of the poisoning can be found and removed before the child’s lead level gets higher. To increase awareness of childhood lead poisoning pre-

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

Applications will be accepted until 4pm on November 8th, 2013. Due to the logistics of the process, no applications will be accepted after that.

Pregame Outlook —

Newton battles Ballard for playoff berth By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

NEWTON — Newton’s Cardinals know what’s at stake Friday night. They win and they are in the Class 3A football playoffs. They lose and the 2013 season is done. Newton hosts Ballard’s Bombers in Class 3A, District 4 play Friday at H.A. Lynn Stadium. Both teams are 4-4 overall and 2-3 in district play. It is Senior Night for the Cardinals. It is the regular-season finale for both teams. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. “Our kids know what’s at stake. We’re playing our best football of the season right now and that is what you want to be doing,” said Ed Ergenbright, Newton head coach. “Our kids are excepting the challenge of stopping a good Ballard team and getting the win to play on.” Ergenbright said the Bombers don’t do anything fancy. “They line it up and run the ball right at you. They score on the ground and try to shut teams down with their physical defensive play. Every coach I’ve talked to pointed to their very

good defense,” he said. Offensively, senior running back Jacob Nethers leads the Bombers. Nethers has rushed for 1,166 yards on 227 carries and scored 10 touchdowns. Isaiah Johnson, a junior, had 418 yards on 70 carries and five touchdowns. Ballard’s quarterback, senior Coy Baker, has passed for 609 yards, going 34-of-100 passing. Baker has seven touchdown passes and four interceptions. Ergenbright said the Bombers have one receiver, who is dangerous. That would be senior Mason Edwards, who averages 29 yards a catch. Edwards had eight catches for 235 yards. “We have to bring that same intensity we’ve had the past two games and sustain it. We’re as healthy as we’ve been. Our kids with injuries have found a way to play through the injuries,” Ergenbright said. Ergenbright said Ballard will be a big test to the Cardinal defense led by seniors Will Brock, Nick Glotfelty, Daquan Allen, Colton Hansen, Levi Michener, Ray Schroeder, Ryan Thompson, Troy Exley, Brandon

Fisher and Dillon Constant. Offensively, the Cardinals are a run-first team, but have found a pretty good balance led by junior quarterback Tyler Wood. Newton has generated 1,695 yards on the ground as a team and 956 yards through the air. Anchoring the offensive line play for the Cardinals are seniors Jake

Huizenga, Derek Wrage, Brock and Thompson. Constant and Jake Smith are seniors who play tight end and defensive end for the Cardinals. Other seniors on the NHS squad are Isaiah Dickey, Earl Kimmel, Joey Wright, Alec Morgan, Mac Icenbice and Devon Wolf. Some play on the special teams units for the Cardinals.

Newton youth punt, pass, kick is Friday Newton’s own version of Punt, Pass & Kick competition for boys and girls in grades 4-6 is Friday before the varsity football game at H.A. Lynn Stadium. The competition begins at 5 p.m. on the east practice field located behind the visitor bleachers at the stadium. Registration forms were handed out at the Newton elementary schools and are available at Newton’s Culver’s and at the Newton Senior High School office. Each participant gets two attempts at each skill — punting, passing and kicking. The participant in each age group with the highest combined scores will be recognized during halftime of the Newton-Ballard game Friday night. The age groups are Grade 4 girls, Grade 4 boys, Grade 5 girls, Grade 5 boys, Grade 6 girls, Grade 6 boys. This competition is sponsored by Culver’s and Newton YSF and is not affiliated with the NFL’s Punt, Pass & Kick Contest.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Ray Schroder (33) rocks Saydel running back Dylan Coffin (25), forcing a fumble in last week’s district game at Saydel. Schroeder and the rest of the Cardinal defense need to bring that type of intensity against a hard-running Ballard Bomber team this Friday. It’s all on the line — win and they are in the playoffs, lose and they are done.

NHS harriers compete in 4A state qualifier today By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor MARSHALLTOWN — Newton’s cross country athletes are at Marshalltown going after Class 4A state cross country meet spots. The Class 4A state qualifying meet is at 4 p.m. today at Marshalltown Community College. Sophomore Grace Coen is attempting to qualify for back-toback state meets. Juniors Hailey Coy, Autumn Hunt, Anna Barr and Amber Knight along with freshmen Ellie Horn and Jordyn Soule have been improving all season. “It looks to be a fun meet. We have great competition in our district to really push and challenge the team and I’m ex-

cited to see how they respond,” said Rachelle Tipton, Newton girls’ head coach. “Grace has had an outstanding season and is looking to finish it with a repeat trip to state. She has the right competition and mind set to make it happen.” Newton’s bouys are led by juniors Christian Laube and Jacob Thomas. Thomas and Laube finished in the top seven at last week’s Little Hawkeye Conference meet. Sophomore Chase Dykstra and juniors Justin Simms, Grant Osborn and Jacob Arrowood along with freshman Justin Fischer have produced good times this season. “The boys are warmed up and ready to run at the district meet. As a team the competition is going to be tough to qual-

ify, but it’s the state meet and we can’t expect anyone to hand us an invitation,” said Tom Bartello, Newton boys’ head coach. “We have been working on, focusing, and preparing for this meet all season. We are looking forward to showing other teams how much we have grown. The coaching staff took some time the last few weeks to discuss with the each athlete what it is going to take to qualify both as individuals and as a team. “At this point in the season it is really time for the coaches to sit back and let the athletes take the lead. It it going to take a lot of heart and determination to qualify this year, and that is exactly what we have prepared to bring to the district meet,” Bartello added.

Lester, Red Sox rout sloppy Cardinals in Series opener BOSTON (AP) — Nearly a decade ago, the Boston Red Sox reversed The Curse. Now they’re even getting key calls turned around in the World Series, leaving them on the verge of an opening Fenway Park sweep for the third time in 10 seasons. And not even a need for instant replay. The umpires overturned this blown call on their own. After Dustin Pedroia was called out on a phantom force play in the first inning of Wednesday night’s World Series opener, second base um-

pire Dana DeMuth was overruled by the other five members of his crew. Three pitches later, Mike Napoli lined a cutter to the gap in left-center field for a go-ahead, threerun double, and the Red Sox coasted to an 8-1 rout of the St. Louis Cardinals. “You rarely see that,” Napoli said before adding, “especially on a stage like this.” WORLD SERIES See Page 2B

Iowa finds success with tight ends IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa is as deep at tight end as any other position group on its roster. The Hawkeyes exploited that advantage quite a bit against Ohio State — and wound up with one of their best passing efforts of the season. Jake Rudock threw for 245 yards and a career-high three TDs, including one each to tight ends C.J. Fiedorowicz and Jake Duzey, in a 3424 road loss to the fourth-ranked Buckeyes. The Hawkeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) used a significant number of sets against Ohio State that featured three tight ends, and 11 of Rudock’s 19 completions went to Fiedorowicz, Duzey and George Kittle. That’s a trend that could continue when Iowa hosts Northwestern (4-3, 0-3) on Saturday. “We’ll keep it in our repertoire,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “It’s a group that we feel comfortable with. It’s no big secret. Certainly in the spring, we felt pretty good about our tight ends and they continue to work hard and improve. So, we’ll utilize that group if it fits.” Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Iowa’s push toward using multiple tight ends was the emergence of Duzey. Duzey nearly caught as many passes against the Buckeyes as he had in his entire career to that point. Duzey, a sophomore from Troy, Mich., had a team-high six receptions, including an 85-yard touchdown off a short pass from Rudock that

tied it at 24 late in the third quarter. Duzey finished with 138 yards, the most for an Iowa tight end in 15 seasons under Ferentz. That’s quite a milestone considering that current NFL players Dallas Clark, Scott Chandler and Brandon Myers never had that many yards for the Hawkeyes. The next NFL tight end from the Hawkeyes is Fiedorowicz, a 6-foot-7 senior. And though Fiedorowicz probably won’t live up to the enormous hype that accompanied his arrival, he has emerged as a valuable safety valve for Rudock. Fiedorowicz caught four passes against Ohio State, including a 2-yard TD reception. He’s now second on the Hawkeyes with 15 catches and first with three touchdowns grabs, all from inside the 11-yard line. “He’s a big body. Fiedorowicz He can go up and get it,” Rudock said. “The speed helps too. C.J. can run.” It’s a good thing Iowa is so stacked at tight end — a group that also includes junior Ray Hamilton and Kittle, a versatile redshirt freshman — because the Hawkeyes are rather thin at wideout. Iowa has yet to develop a consistent threat beyond Kevonte Martin-Manley, who has 27 catches and a pair of touchdowns.

World Series: Reversed call boosts Boston to 8-1 win Continued from Page 1B Jon Lester made the early lead stand up, allowing five hits in 7 2/3 scoreless innings with eight strikeouts and a walk. David Ortiz hit a two-run homer for the Red Sox after Carlos Beltran robbed him of a grand slam on a second-inning catch that sent the star right fielder to a hospital with bruised ribs. “We had a wakeup call. That is not the kind of team that we’ve been all season,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “And they’re frustrated. I’m sure embarrassed to a point.” Game 2 is Thursday night, with 22-year-old rookie sensation Michael Wacha starting for St. Louis against John Lackey. Wacha is 3-0 with a 0.43 ERA this postseason. As the World Series returned to 101-yearold Fenway Park, the oldest big league stadium, fans still basked in the memory of the 2004 sweep of the Cardinals, which ended an 86-year title drought. After that championship, then Gov. Mitt Romney helped take a blowtorch to the “Reverse the Curse” sign on Storrow Drive — which originally read “Reverse Curve” until it was edited by fans with spray paint. This time they reversed the out. Jacoby Ellsbury walked leading off the first, and Pedroia singled with one out. Ortiz followed with a slow bouncer to second baseman Matt Carpenter that had an outside chance of being turned into an inning-ending double play. Carpenter made a routine 30-foot backhand flip to Kozma in plenty of time for the out. But as the shortstop approached second base, the ball bounced off the edge of his glove’s webbing and fell to the ground. DeMuth called Pedroia out on a force, indicating the ball was dropped by Kozma while

making the transfer to his throwing hand. Red Sox manager John Farrell jogged out from the dugout out to argue. All six umpires huddled near shortstop for 30 seconds to discuss the play as Farrell looked on from the infield grass. And then crew chief Farrell John Hirschbeck then walked toward the Cardinals dugout on the third-base side, motioning with his left hand for Matheny to come out. He told him that Pedroia was being called safe, and Matheny spent 1½ minutes arguing to no avail, repeatedly jabbing his right index finger in the air. “That’s not a play I’ve ever seen before,” Matheny said. “And I’m pretty sure there were six umpires on the field that had never seen that play before either. It’s a pretty tough time to debut that overruled call in the World Series. Now, I get that trying to get the right call. I get that. Tough one to swallow.” DeMuth admitted he got it wrong. “I stayed with the foot too long. That’s how I ended up getting in trouble,” he said. “And when I was coming up, all I could see was a hand coming out and the ball on the ground. All right? So I was assuming.” Under rules changes likely to be approved for next season, video will be used for virtually every call other than balls and strikes. Managers would be allowed one challenge over the first six innings and two from the seventh inning on. Officials in New York City would make the final ruling.

Iowa State to stick with Richardson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State once believed that Sam Richardson would solve their long-standing issues at quarterback. Halfway through a disappointing season, Richardson finds himself fighting simply to remain the starter. Richardson will keep the job for another week, though. I o w a State Richardson coach P a u l Rhoads has named him the No. 1 quarterback ahead of Grant Rohach for Saturday’s game against No. 19 Oklahoma State (5-1, 2-1 Big 12). He and Rohach, a redshirt freshman, were listed as costarters on a depth chart released Monday. But Rhoads announced Tuesday that Richardson will get the nod against the Cowboys. “The number one reason is just the knowledge that he has overall, of pre-snap and postsnap,” Rhoads said of Richardson. “Sam’s knowledge is just far

ahead, quite simply, of where Grant’s knowledge is. That’s just time and experience.” Richardson, a redshirt sophomore, has started all six games for the Cyclones (15, 0-3) and thrown for 1,255 yards and 10 touchdowns. But Richardson has also played with an injured ankle since the season opener — and his play has declined over the past few weeks.. Richardson was just 15 of 38 passing in a loss at Texas Tech. Last week, Richardson was 7 of 14 for 68 yards and an interception as the Cyclones were trounced by Baylor 71-7. It got so bad in Waco that Rhoads went to Rohach for the first time. Rohach was 8 of 13 passing for 65 yards, with a touchdown pass and an interception against Baylor’s reserves. But Richardson was able to keep from further exacerbating his ankle injury, which helped him hold onto the job for another week. “We plan on him playing at a higher level with his physical health. He’s got to make smarter decisions and quicker judgments,” Rhoads said.

Astrograph Friday, October 25, 2013

Tonight and tomorrow night are the optimum Halloween party opportunities, and each evening has a distinctly different tone. Tonight is ruled by the Cancer moon and features uncanny coincidences that bring people together for mutual nurturing. Tomorrow night, the Leo moon promises theatrical frights and delights

the phoenix. The thing they all have in common is an aggressive instinct. Today you’ll use that well.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 25). You identify with the misfits, and this very same group will help you rule the mainstream. November shows you running things. December and July are financial highs. February highlights your tie with an affectionate someone. Trying to do things the easy way will lead to mistakes. Go for integrity in all things. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 11, 27 and 15.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). If you lead with your strong, competitive nature, you may intimidate those around you or inspire a kind of fight in them that you’ll later wish wasn’t there. Approach gingerly. Feel things out. Be tender.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are three symbols most prominently associated with your sign: the scorpion, the eagle and

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Self-discipline doesn’t usually come easily to you, but you are able to muster more than usual today as you work toward constructively channeling your considerable power.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your air-sign energy will be amplified now. One could call you the Lord of the Winds and Breezes, as you seem to be able to will the winds of fate to blow in the direction that most pleases you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What looked mighty fine from far away will re-

veal itself to be otherwise close up. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying a beautiful view. Just keep it all at a lovely distance. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Courage is contagious. When you take a stand, much good will come of it. That which you stand for will be fortified, and others will be emboldened to stand beside you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone with more maturity and experience has a lot to teach you. Don’t discount all that you might teach this person in return. There’s a chance you could come up with an extremely beneficial barter. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll have great affection for each of the roles you play throughout the day. The real you is the one adaptive enough to wear this many hats and juggle them, too! CANCER (June 22-July 22). Much is riding on your ideas. You don’t have to be

a genius to be the smartest one in the room. You just have to have the answer that no one else does. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s hard to experience your own uniqueness as an individual because you’re with yourself all of the time. That’s why it’s easy to fall in love with the person who helps you see it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel resistant to the changes you didn’t instigate. You’re not being stubborn, just cautious. Someone has to be the one to question authority, and right now it’s you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If others lose patience and stamina, it doesn’t matter to you. You’ll keep on keeping on with or without them. You’ll see results because you believe enough to stick with it until the end. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
