Friends, family and colleagues in four states were in mourning over the weekend following the shooting death of Derek Moore, a Newton Senior High School graduate who was a col-

lege assistant football coach in Joplin, Mo. According to Joplin police, the 37-year-old Moore was shot at approximately 9:50 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of the Northstar 14 cineplex. A short time later, law enforcement apprehended 39-year-old Jeffery L. Bruner, also of Joplin, who is alleged to

have shot Moore. Moore died of his injuries at a Joplin hospital a short time after the shooting. He leaves behind a 7-year-old son, Elijah. Bruner was charged by Jasper County, Mo., prosecutors with Class A felony murder and armed criminal action. At last report, he was

being held without bond in the Joplin City Jail. Moore was in his first year at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, where he was the offensive line coach. The university canceled its remaining homecoming activities, and

When the Jasper County Board of Supervisors last met on Oct. 22, it approved a measure to allow the county to accept sealed bids for the county’s crop land located near the former county care facility, and on Tuesday, those bids will be read. Citizens interested in bidding on the county’s crop land have a deadline of until just before Tuesday’s meeting, which starts at 9:30 a.m., to submit their bids. The board also will have a vote on signing a 28E agreement to create the Mud Creek, Camp Creek and Spring Creek Watershed Management Authority. This new authority would include Jasper, Marion and Polk counties. In addition to those three counties, the cities of Altoona, Bondurant, Mitchellville, Pleasant Hill and Runnells would also be a part of the authority. According to the text of the 28E agreement, the new authority would assess flood risks and water quality in the watershed and weigh the options of how to reduce flood risk and how to improve the water quality. Some of the other duties of the management group would also include monitoring federal flood risk planning and activities, educating residents of the watershed on their flood risks and the water quality, seeking and allocating available funds for the purposes of water quality and flood control.

Those updates were long overdue, said Filer. “The Branstads love to have people visit here. They love to entertain,” she noted Friday, as the mansion was being put to rights after a Halloween bash the previous night. Some more esthetically pleasing improve-

ments include repairing plaster walls and repainting traditional stenciled wall art in the dining room and an upstairs hall. On deck for the future are new storm windows for the first floor and bathroom updates in the basement level. Filer said the fundraising dollars were essential because the state only budgets about $500,000 annually for upkeep and staffing at the mansion. Some additional funding goes to two household employees.

Bullying summit to address solutions DES MOINES (AP) — Educators, parents and students will gather for Gov. Terry Branstad’s second summit on bullying prevention. The event will be held today in Des Moines. This year’s theme is “Mission Possible: Stepping Up the Response,” and is a follow-up to last year’s summit, which drew about 1,100 people. The summit’s keynote speaker is Emily Bazelon, author of the book “Sticks and Stones: Defeating the

Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy.” During the summit, there will be sessions on how students and adults can make a difference. Participants will explore good legal policy and support schools may need to better deal with bullying. The governor’s push for antibullying legislation meant to help school districts combat harassment on social media sites failed during the last legislative session.

Police Blotter Newton Police Department • David A. Crow, 59, of Newton was charged with operating while intoxicated after authorities received a report at 5:49 p.m. Tuesday of a male subject who could barely walk leaving West End Sinclair with a case of beer and driving away. The suspect’s vehicle was located parked in the 700 block of South Fourth Avenue East, and Crow was in the driver’s seat. He refused sobriety tests but admitted to have beers at home and a bar. He was arrested and taken to the Jasper County Jail. • Chad E. Veach, 32, of Newton was charged with possession of marijuana (second offense), public intoxication, disorderly conduct, possession of drug paraphernalia and interference with official acts after authorities responded to a report of two males involved in a fight at 11:47 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Git N Go parking lot. Upon arrival, authorities found one of the males inside attempting to buy alcohol and other items. The male was identified as Veach and was taken outside because he appeared to be intoxicated. He failed sobriety maneuvers and was placed under arrest. During a search, authorities found a bag of 24.6 grams of marijuana, a marijuana pipe, a black scale and straw cut to a length of approximately two inches to snort prescription pills. Veach also admitted to being involved in a fight with another person before police arrived. He was taken to the Jasper County Jail. • Two 14-year-old Newton males were charged Monday with disorderly conduct after authorities responded to a report of a fight at 3:30 p.m. Oct. 9 on a school bus parked at the Newton Senior High School. They were charged following an investigation and referred to juvenile court services. A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. It is the policy of the Newton Daily News to release the names of individuals charged with a crime who are 16 and older.

Empty Nest

Morris Stamps the author With Veteran’s Day coming up, and all the baby boomers aging in, wondering what to do with themselves, I’d like to write about Morris Stamps of Seymour, in Southern Iowa’s Wayne County. Morris is 98 years young, a World War II veteran, was a By Curt Swarm teacher, football Guest Columnist coach, and principal of Seymour High School, was married 60 years to his WW II sweetheart, and has written five books.  As if this weren’t enough, I’d like to point out to all the baby boomers (war babies) out there, or otherwise retired people that find life in retirement rather humdrum, that Morris didn’t start writing these books until he was 92.  Yep.  His undergraduate degree from Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., was in English and History.  He had considered becoming a journalist, before the war came along and rearranged his plans, so it isn’t all that unusual that he would write books. But at 92?!  Most people his age feel lucky if they can hold a pen, or punch a keyboard, or remember events.  But Morris is rather sharp, and one of Seymour’s prized treasures.  Everyone knows him.  After all, he was the high school principal, teacher, and head football coach, with a couple of conference championships and undefeated teams under his belt. The five books he has written are available at the Seymour Herald newspaper office.  The first four books, “Shoal Creek Legends (1 through 4)” contain stories he remembers from his youth in post-World War I, Southern Iowa, up to his induction into the Army at the start of World War II. The fifth book, “SNAFUs and Love Letters: Memories of an Old GI” recount his experiences as a message center chief stationed in Hawaii, and his letter-writing courtship of his beloved Enid. These books were published by the Seymour Community Club with help from The Seymour Herald and the journalism class at the Seymour Community High School.  Proceeds go to a scholarship fund in his wife’s and his name. Morris was kind enough to lend me two of his books. I read both in one day, something I have never done before, they are that well written, entertaining, historical, and interesting. A couple of the “snafus” from the “SNAFUs and Love Letters” book:  Morris was about to have his first date with Enid. He was on hold at the induction center at Camp Dodge.  Enid was going to prepare him a homecooked meal. He was getting ready for the date, his mouth watering, when he was ordered to get on a train for California. Drat! “What might have been?” He wound up in Hawaii after a long, arduous trip aboard a troop transport. He was in the Army for some time, and was working in the message center, when it was realized that he’d had no basic training!  He and a buddy were given a half-day, two-week, crash course. At 98, Morris Stamps feels he has a couple more books left in him. Seymour hopes so. His last book is in major libraries across the country. Seymour is looking forward to celebrating Morris Stamp’s 100th birthday. But Morris has more important things on his mind. A friend recently gave him a CD player for his television, and a CD of his favorite movie of all times, “Random Harvest” with Greer Garson and Ronald Colman. He has watched it hundreds of times. Tonight will be no exception. ••• Have a good story?

Letter to the Editor

Civilized nation ought not tolerate willful destruction of unborn To the editor: Recent reports in the news from Central Iowa included the criminal offense of “abuse of a corpse.” Thankfully, this happens infrequently. If you break into a funeral home and dismember a corpse, you can get into serious legal trouble.

But if an abortionist dismembers a living human being in utero, the laws of this nation are fully supportive of that willful destruction of innocent human life. In this nation, a corpse enjoys greater protection under law than a living human being. A nation that hopes to be consid-

ered civilized ought not tolerate the willful destruction of its most innocent and vulnerable members — the unborn. Fr. William E. Reynolds Pastor Sacred Heart Catholic Church Newton

Work for twerps If you’re thinking you’re pretty darn lucky to have a job, you’re right. Considering your abilities, it is definitely a miracle that anyone hired you. Your employment proves that you are one lucky cat. Or it proves that By Bob Goldman the only person Creators Syndicate in the universe who is worse at their job than you is the person who made the decision to hire you in the first place. And the reason I bring up this nasty bit of reality? Because I want you to share my outrage over a group of people who are not satisfied with getting a paycheck; they also expect to get free beer, free massages, free housecleaning services, free laundry, free food, and — oh, yes — free access to on-site “napping stations.” Who are these people, you ask. Mostly, they are those annoying young people, and mostly, they work for those annoying Internet companies. According to a recent article in The San Francisco Chronicle by Kathleen Pender, “Tech, social media employers offer perks aplenty,” tech companies in the Bay Area are falling over themselves to offer their employees a bottomless cornucopia of perks. So many perks that it is amazing that these young whippersnappers have any time left in the day to do any work at all. Consider, for example, the abovementioned perk of the napping station. According to Pender, Social

Opinions expressed in letters and columns are those of the writers and do not represent the views of the Newton Daily News.

Print Studio of San Francisco offers its employees wood boxes into which they can crawl with their pillows, stuffed animals and blankies, before closing the lid and settling in for a peaceful workplace nap. All I can say is — what is wrong with young people today? You and I take our naps at our desks, not under them. And we have to do our napping while looking like we’re actually working. This is not a skill that comes easily. The ability to doze away the day without anyone noticing is the kind of accomplishment that makes workers like us prime examples of the American workforce at its best! When the newbies are not napping, chances are, they are eating. As Pender points out, “Benefits consultant Towers Watson surveyed 20 large tech companies about their perks this year and found that the most popular, and most valued by employees, was free or subsidized meals.” How typical and how sad. Could there be a better example of the decline of the American worker than the universal expectation of a free lunch. It’s a tragedy that these misguided tech companies don’t encourage their workers to take a page from your book. When you want a free lunch, you accomplish your goal in the traditional way — you steal someone else’s lunch from the break room refrigerator. It would be a difficult cultural change to implement, I will allow, but imagine how much better our economy would be if instead of a workforce that rushes to the company cafeteria for their lunchtime handout, we had a rabid pack of

predators busily plotting and planning to steal each other’s lunch and gobble it down before they were caught and throttled. Think of what the blood lust over a blood sausage on rye would do for our global competitiveness. Of course, the culprit behind this transition from our natural instincts as hunter-gathers into Chardonnay sipping, sushi-slurping softies is the tech giant, Google. As Pender writes, “flush with cash and needing hordes of people, it offered an enviable line of benefits that now includes gourmet food, 22 weeks of paid maternity leave, plus $500 in “baby bonding bucks” for new parents.” (Note to Google: As someone who has raised three children, I must inform you that $500 bucks is not enough to pay a baby to stop screaming and let you bond. Why not give every new baby a pony? Google can certainly afford it, and after the kid grows up, the parents can ride it to work.) Of all the panoply of perks available today, Social Print Studios has my favorite — a wall of exotic taxidermy animals for employees to enjoy whenever they crawl out of their napping stations. “Employees are encouraged, but not required,” Pender writes, “to choose one that best represents their spirit.” I’m sure the perk-laden punks who work here are totally inspired and motivated choosing from the stuffed moose, elk and water buffalo heads hanging on the wall, but it would never work for me or thee. In their entire display of dead animal heads with whom we might identify, I didn’t see one scared rabbit.

Moore: ‘Derek was a high-energy person who played with energy and passion’ Continued from Page 1A postponed its Saturday football game with Lindenwood. “We are stunned and deeply saddened by this tragic incident, and our prayers are with Derek’s family,” MSSU interim president Alan Marble said in the university’s official statement Saturday. “We are ensuring that our employees and students have the emotional support they need during this difficult time.” Grief counselors have been made available to students and staff. A candlelight vigil was planned for later tonight. “Derek was new to Missouri Southern, but he was

embraced by our campus and community,” Lions head coach Daryl Daye said. “He was a very likeable person who always had a smile on his face and made friends easily with our staff and players. This is an unspeakable loss for the MSSU athletics family.” Moore graduated from NHS in 1995. He was a standout on the offensive line for the Cardinals, earning Second Team All-State honors as a senior. “Derek was a high-energy person who played with energy and passion, which made him a tremendous player, and I’m sure he carried that into his coaching,”

NHS head coach Ed Ergenbright said. “This is a tragedy for his family and all of us who knew Derek.” Ergenbright said Moore had applied at Newton as an assistant coach a year ago “but the time frame didn’t work out. He had wanted to get out of coaching college and into high school coaching. When it didn’t work here, I was so glad he got the position at Missouri Southern.” “Derek, as a college coach, would stop in here when he was in our area recruiting players,” Ergenbright added. “It was fun for me as a coach to sit and talk to him as a former player but also as a

coach.” Moore went on to play collegiately at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls and then Morningside College in Sioux City. He came to MSSU after three seasons at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Ill., where had served as an offensive line and tight ends coach. He had a 14-year coaching career that included stops at Ames High School, the University of Northern Iowa, Upper Iowa University, Ellsworth Community College, Iowa Central Community College, St. Cloud State University and Lincoln University.

A memorial service was planned for this afternoon in Corley Auditorium at the university’s in Webster Hall. Marble, Daye and athletics director Jared Bruggeman will speak at the ceremony. “The Missouri Southern athletics community is deeply saddened by the events that have occurred,” athletics director Jared Bruggeman said. “In times like this, our priority is to make sure we are there for our studentathletes, coaches and support staff in whatever way necessary.” Additional reporting by The Associated Press.

Woman offering thanks to vets finds it’s not always welcome DEAR ABBY: Recently I took a cue from my sister and her career Navy husband. They always make it a point to thank anyone they see in military uniform for his/her service and sacrifice. I am somewhat shy by nature. But I am so thankful to these men and women who fight for our continued freedom that I stepped out of my comfort zone to verbalize my feelings and encourage those who cross my path. Abby, the first and second thankyous I offered did not go well. The first gentleman I spoke to gave me a scornful look and proceeded to tell me I should be thankful for ALL military personnel — not just him — and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. I felt 3 inches tall and very embarrassed, but I chalked it up to perhaps having said thanks the wrong way, so I tried again. This time I thanked a World War II veteran. I recognized him as a vet by the emblem on the bill of the cap he was wearing. His response was, “Didn’t have a choice — it was the draft or jail.” Maybe I’m not cut out for verbalizing my thankfulness, or maybe I’m doing it wrong. Now my shyness has taken over again. Should I silently offer a prayer of thanks instead? — TWICE BITTEN IN WASHINGTON DEAR TWICE BITTEN: The first person you spoke to may have lost some friends recently, which is why he spoke to you the way he did. Your response to the service member’s statement should have been: “Of course you are right. And I AM grateful. But you are here, which is why I’m expressing my thanks to YOU.” Period. As to the WWII vet who entered the service one jump ahead of the law — give him marks for honesty in admitting his reason for entering the military was less than patriotic. But please don’t stop offering thanks. What you

experienced was some bad beginner’s luck, but each time you express your gratitude, the odds will improve. DEAR ABBY: A little over a year ago, my husband and I were pulled over after a day on our boat. We had been drinking. My husband was charged with a DUI, went through everything that was required and decided to stop drinking. I am very proud of him. Going to AA meetings has kept him strong, and he has become a better person. I, on the other hand, like to relax with a beer once in a while, but if I do, I feel guilty. My husband says it’s OK, but I feel it might tempt him. Am I doomed not to be able to drink anymore to support his sobriety, or can I have a beer once in a while and hope he has learned to cope? Is having an occasional beer selfish? — NEEDS A DRINK IN NEW YORK DEAR NEEDS A DRINK: When someone describes not imbibing alcohol as being “doomed” and signs off as “needs a drink,” I suspect that the individual may be alcohol-dependent to some degree. If there is any chance that your sober husband might crave alcohol if he sees you having a beer, then do it when you’re not in his presence. I call that being considerate and “sacrificing” for the greater good.

Sen. Chuck Schumer endorses Clinton for president DES MOINES (AP) — Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York is urging his former Senate colleague, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to run for president. In fact, he’s already endorsing her. Schumer, the third-ranking Democratic member of the Senate, endorsed the former secretary of state during the

party’s annual Jefferson Jackson dinner, joining a chorus of Democrats calling on Clinton to run again. In remarks to the crowd of 750 Democratic supporters, he said that with Clinton, the party can “vanquish the Ted Cruz, tea party Republicans in 2016.” “It’s time for a woman to be president,” Schumer

With vegetable oil having close to a 1:1 conversion rate to biodiesel, and the most common biodiesel blend being 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent traditional diesel, that could enable Midwest Renewable Biofuels to assist in putting up to 5 million gallons of biodiesel into the market each year. “Midwest Renewable is striving to

mother. Hillary’s experience is unrivaled and her vision is unparalleled.” Clinton aides did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the remarks. Polls show that Clinton would be the leading contender for the Democratic nomination if she were to run. She told New York magazine

in an article published in September that she was wrestling with whether to run again and offered no timeline for an announcement. “I’m not in any hurry. I think it’s a serious decision, not to be made lightly, but it’s also not one that has to be made soon,” Clinton told the magazine.

Food banks: Federal cuts boosting food pantry need M U S C AT I N E (AP) — Workers running the Salvation Army food pantry in Muscatine worry that already thinly stocked shelves soon will become bare because the government is cutting back funds for a food program for low income residents. The USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cut the monthly check for a family of four by about $36 a month beginning Friday. The Salvation Army workers said they fear the cut will boost demand from food pantries. “I’m most worried about our seniors and our children,” said Sissy Rogers, a Salvation Army caseworker. “They’re going to be the most hurt by all this.” Muscatine residents and churches “continue to be very generous supplying us,” Rogers said. It’s just that certain types of food — boxes of macaroni and cheese and canned fruit — are flying off the

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

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

Community rallies for Newton’s Main Street Program planned for Thursday By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor To make the necessary improvements to turn Newton into a destination for new residents and economic development, community leaders know it will take an all-handson-deck approach. Thursday, the Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce invites the entire community to attend one of two rallies that will highlight its community-betterment initiative. At noon and 5:30 p.m., the Chamber’s Main Street Committee will present the benefits of making Newton into a Main Street Community. The mission of the Main Street Iowa Program is to improve the social and economic well-being of Iowa’s communities by assisting selected communities to capitalize on the unique identity, assets and character of their historic commercial district. This is highlighted by the Main Street Approach, which was developed by the National Main Street Center with the goal of economic development within the context of historic preservation. The following four points make up the Main Street Approach, which is meant to create a positive, identifiable image for downtown districts, like the Newton Downtown Area: Economic Restructuring — This

element involves diversifying the commercial district economy by identifying potential market niches, finding new uses for vacant or underused spaces and improving business practices. Design — Utilizing appropriate design concepts, the visual quality of the commercial district (buildings, signs, window displays, landscaping, and environment) is enhanced. Organization — Each community has many groups of people who are interested in and are willing to work toward the goal of a revitalized commercial district. The organizational element brings

together the public sector, private groups and individual citizens, with coordination by a paid program manager, to work more effectively in the commercial district. Promotion — By promoting the downtown in a positive manner, a community can begin to focus on the commercial district as a source of community pride, social activity and economic development potential The Chamber’s Main Street Committee is made up of representatives of the Chamber, the City of Newton Historical Preservation Commission, city development staff and local busi-

ness leaders. It issued a joint statement regarding the Main Street Project: “We are convinced that the Main Street Program will be good for our city, beneficial to the downtown business community, and of great value to property owners. Dozens of small towns and cities across Iowa and hundreds across the country have benefitted from this unique public/private partnership that brings life and economic vitality to aging, historic downtowns and retail districts like Downtown Newton. We are fortunate that Iowa has one of the premier Main Street Programs in the United States. “We want Downtown Newton to be a place we can all be proud of. When Jasper County residents conduct business at the Courthouse (which has already completed extensive renovations) we want them to see a vibrant downtown district. “We want to provide an enjoyable, appealing setting for downtown retail and businesses to succeed. When a new business considers moving to Newton, we want them to see a downtown that says, ‘We are proud of our community.’”  of the Each 30-minute rallies is open to the public free of charge at the Capitol II Theater. Free popcorn will be available, and drawings will be held for door prizes.

Dubuque proposes incentives for Hormel expansion DUBUQUE (AP) — The city of Dubuque is proposing an economic development package that could provide about $4 million in city and state benefits to Hormel Foods as an incentive to expand in Iowa. Hormel is considering Dubuque for a $31 million expansion that would create 100 jobs in two new production lines at its meat processing plant, economic development officials said. Competition for the project is global, eco-

nomic development officials told The Dubuque Telegraph Herald. “(Hormel) is extremely important to the community,” said Maurice Jones, Dubuque’s economic development director. “Going forward, I think it’s really important that we try to help them expand here as opposed to (somewhere) else. I think we have a lot to offer.”

Baltimore insurer to relocate to Des Moines DES MOINES (AP) — A Baltimore-based life insurance company is moving its corporate offices to Des Moines and it plans to employ 50 workers within the next three years, a company spokesman said. Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Co. already has a temporary location in downtown Des Moines, a presence that will grow as it makes the headquarters transition, The Des Moines Register reported Saturday. The company sells annuities and life insurance. It has 180 employees, with 150 of those in Baltimore and 30 in Lincoln, Neb., spokesman Paul Tyler said. The company intends to keep those offices and staff members, but channel its future growth to Des Moines, he said. “Iowa is attractive to us because it has a deep insurance talent pool, a sophisticated regulatory approach to indexed products, and strong business climate,” CEO Lee Launer said in a statement. The insurance industry employs about 24,000 people in the Des Moines area and the Iowa Insurance Division, the state’s insurance regulatory agency, said 212 insurance companies are based in Iowa. Fidelity & Guaranty’s announcement was likely good news for workers given layoff notices from Aviva USA this year. The insurance company most recently cut about 90 workers after it was bought by Athene Holding Ltd., a company owned by private equity fund Apollo Global Management. Fidelity Guaranty executives were aware of that pool of insurance professionals, Tyler said. “There’s a lot of good talent in the area and we respect what the people have done at Aviva the last 10 or 15 years,” he said. Tyler noted that Fidelity & Guaranty received no incentives from Iowa. Fidelity & Guaranty’s parent company is the New York City-based Harbinger Capital Partners hedge fund. Tyler indicated an initial public offering of shares by Fidelity & Guaranty is planned. If taken public, the company would join other publicly traded insurers based in Iowa, including Principal Financial Group, FBL Financial, American Equity Investment Life and EMC Insurance Group.

FAA eases rules on electronic devices on planes WASHINGTON (AP) — Airline passengers won’t have to “turn off all electronic devices” anymore — they’ll be able to read, work, play games, watch movies and listen to music from gate to gate under new guidelines from the Federal Aviation Administration. But they still can’t talk on their cellphones through the flight. Don’t expect the changes to happen immediately, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said Thursday at a news conference announcing new rules. How fast will vary by airline. Delta and JetBlue said they would quickly submit plans to implement the new policy. Airlines will have to show the FAA that their airplanes meet the new guidelines and that they’ve updated their flight-crew training manuals, safety announcements and rules for stowing devices to reflect the new guidelines.

Volunteers Live Longer, Healthier & Happier A new review suggests that volunteering may not only improve mental health but lengthen life as well. In the study, volunteers had a 22% lower mortality rate than non-volunteers. They also reported greater satisfaction with life and a heightened sense of well-being and were less likely to be depressed. Experts also found that older adults who volunteered at least 200 hours per year were 40% less likely to develop high blood pressure. It’s interesting to note that the research shows these benefits were only seen when the motivation for volunteering was to help others, not oneself.

NCMP’s medley relay, Scotton are regional champs Aquagirls qualify for state swim meet in five events By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor WEST DES MOINES — Swim regional 2013 began with a school-record and ended with a school-record for the NCMP Aquagirls Saturday. In between were four other school record swims, a 1-2-3 sweep in the 100-yard butterfly race, 10 individual regional medals and three relay-team medals. Newton/Colfax-Mingo/Pella qualified for the 2013 state swim meet in five events. The Aquagirls will take all three relay teams to the state meet this coming Saturday, Nov. 9, in Marshalltown. There will be three girls swimming in two individual events at state for the Aquagirls. “We’ve never had a meet like this,” said Sarah Patterson, NCMP head coach. “Every single girl swimming for us today either had a season’s best or personal-best time. The girls were relaxed and confident. We told them this past week that we’re not little fish in a big pond. We’ve had an awesome season so let’s go in and swim big at

regional. Man, did they swim big today.” Patterson and assistant coach Chris Forsyth were named 2013 Regional Meet Coaching Staff of the Year. The Aquagirls finished third as a team with 336 points. Meet host West Des Moines Valley High won the team championship with 476 points and Des Moines Roosevelt was second at 339. The Valley High swimming pool was a fast pool all day for all those in the regional meet. NCMP put that to the test in the opening event of the regional — the 200-yard medley relay. The Aquagirl foursome of junior Hannah Scotton and sophomores Sydney Jenkins, Hannah Rhoads and Samantha Hedrick was seeded No. 3 heading into the competition. Jenkins opened with the backstroke leg and NCMP was in third place in a close race with Valley and Des Moines SWIM See Page 2B

FORT DODGE — It wasn’t the ending Grace Coen wanted, but she gave it all she had. Newton’s sophomore and lone representative at the state cross country meet in Fort Dodge on Saturday crossed the finish line exhausted. Coen ran strong the entire race, jockeying for position in between the eighth and 11th spots in the field, but down the stretch she admittedly ran out of gas. The Class 4A race started with Coen shuffled back into about the 20th spot, but nearly halfway through the race, she had worked her way into the top-10. The last 1,000 meters were where Coen felt her race got away from her, with competitors swishing past her in the final staightaway. Coen took 27th place with a time of 15 minutes, 4.1 seconds. “I was pretty disappointed with the end of the race, but you live and learn,” Coen said. The sophomore has not had much adversity in her first year and a third as a Cardinal. She qualified for this state meet along with competing at the state track meet last spring. Coen understands her mistakes made in this race, and her perspective has shifted towards the future. “I’d rather have this happen now than later,” Coen said. “So, I will just have to regroup and work harder.” Coen’s coach, Rachelle Tipton, sympathized with Coen in her disappointment, but pointed out that her accomplishments this season should not go without some celebration.

Swim: Aquagirls set six school records at regional meet Continued from Page 1B Roosevelt. Rhoads’ breaststroke leg kept pace then Scotton went in for the butterfly leg. It was a dead-even between NCMP and Valley when the final swimmers dived in. “I was excited about how well we did and excited we’re going to state,” Jenkins said of the medley relay. Hedrick broke to the lead in the freestyle but at the turn it was still a three-way race. Hedrick pushed out again, and this time, touched ahead of Valley. The Aquagirls set a new school record for the 200yard medley relay in 1 minute, 50.45 seconds. Valley, which was seeded No. 1, took second in 1:51.29. As a freshman, Scotton combined with Sidney Griffith, Ellen Colville and Carly Colville for the previous 200-yard medley relay mark for NCMP, 1:54.10 in 2011. “This was the relay that woke me up last night thinking ‘those girls have a chance,’” Patterson said. “At one point, we were third and they brought it home. To break a school record by four seconds is unheard of in a 200 medley. That got us going. It was one swim after another.” The Aquagirl trio of Scotton, Hedrick and senior Carly Colville were seeded 1-2-3 in the 100-yard butterfly. Coming out of the first break of the regional meet, the NCMP three did not disappoint. Scotton took the lead with Hedrick and Colville right on her sides as the three worked the three middle lanes of the pool. Scotton defended her regional championship in NCMP-record time of 57.90, breaking her on mark of 58.98 set in 2012. “I wouldn’t have been able to have done it without Samantha and Carly. We’ve been practicing hard all season, pushing each other. Now, we’ll see how state goes,” Scotton said. Scotton placed fifth at state in the 100-yard butterfly a year ago. Hedrick also went under the old record time. She placed second in 58.61 seconds. Colville was third in 1:01.78. “It was just ‘go get it’ for us all,” Hedrick said of the butterfly race for her and her teammates. Colville made the medal podium in the 200-yard freestyle race with a NCMPrecord swim of 1:59.92 for fifth place. The previous 200-yard freestyle mark for NCMP was 2:00.36 set by Ellen Colville in 2009. In earlier heats of the 200-yard freestyle competition, NCMP’s freshman Sarah Prendergast, who won her heat, and junior Rachel Prendergast recorded times for 2:07.51 and 2:06.09, respectively. Rachel Prendergast finished 10th and Sarah Prendergast was 11th. Six medals are awarded at regionals.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News With their game faces on, NCMP’s 400-yard relay team readies in the block area. Senior Carly Colville has her goggles on to lead off the race then junior Rachel Prendergast, sophomore Sydney Jenkins and sophomore Samantha Hedrick (with head down). The foursome broke a school record, took second at the regional and qualified for the state swim meet. At right, NCMP coaches Sarah Patterson and Chris Forsyth work the side of the pool during a race. The two were named coaching staff of the year at the regional meet Saturday in West Des Moines.

Junior Sara Martin finished seventh in the 200-yard individual medley event. She finished the race in 2:20.57, and the sixthplace time was 2:20.15. Rhoads ended up ninth in 2:22 and sophomore Sierra Griffith placed 14th in 2:28.77. Scotton and Jenkins went fifth and sixth in the 50-yard freestyle. Scotton’s time was 25.45 seconds and Jenkins finished in 25.72 seconds. Sophomore Knoll was 16th in 26.82. Rachel Prendergast earned the regional fifth-place medal in the 100-yard freestyle race in 56.68 seconds. Freshman Emily Miller finished 12th in 59.35 seconds and junior Kira Hanson was 19th in 1:02.28. Senior Emily Forsyth swam her final race for NCMP at the regional meet. Forsyth placed 17th in the 500-yard freestyle race in 6:16.32. Sophomore Elizabeth Myers was 12th in the event in 5:45.88 and Sarah Prendergast was 14th in 5:48.84. Next in the pool for the Aquagirls Saturday was the 200-yard freestyle relay team of Colville, Martin, Hedrick and Scotton. Colville, Hedrick and Scotton were out to qualify for a second straight state meet in the event. Martin was there to help. “We were all excited to swim today plus we were trying to pump our team back up. Our energy level had gone down a bit,” Martin said. Colville led off the relay, putting the Aquagirls in second place, where they would stay most of the race. Martin hit the

water next followed by Hedrick and Scotton. Scotton out-touched Des Moines Roosevelt’s Mckenna Lynch for second place. Valley won the race in 1:38.57. “We really wanted to get the school record because it’s been one of our goals this season,” Colville said. “We were trying to get second in this race and we pushed it to the end. We touched them out by three one-hundredths of a second. I’ve very proud of the girls. They’ve been working so hard all season and I’m proud to call them my team.” NCMP’s new school mark in the 200yard freestyle relay is 1:40.26. Des Moines Roosevelt’s time was 1:40.29. The 200-yard freestyle relay record was one of the oldest on the NCMP board — 1:42.09 set in 2002 by the team of Molly Tomlonovic, Nicole Beyer, Amanda Wetter and Emily Bensink. “Just wanting to break the school record, we just went out and pushed each other,” Hedrick said. “We knew we had to take it out hard and swim just as hard at the end,” Scotton said. Scotton, Colville, Martin and Hedrick also own the NCMP 200-meter freestyle relay record. The fifth NCMP record to fall at the regional meet was in the 100-yard backstroke. Jenkins is NCMP’s top swimmer in the event and her top time in the event was 1:03.29. Saturday, the sophomore shaved almost two seconds off that, going 1:01.99 for the fourthplace medal. “I was so excited when I finished,

but I didn’t know what my time was. I couldn’t find it on the board at first then I saw it. I really worked hard to get the record,” Jenkins said. The old record was 1:02.49 set by Ellen Colville in 2011. Also in the backstroke event, Hanson placed ninth in 1:06.50 and Knoll was 12th in 1:09.51. Rhoads and Griffith earned regional medals in the 100-yard breaststroke. Rhoads finished fourth in 1:11.39 and Griffith, who won her heat, was sixth in 1:11.96. Martin placed seventh in the event in 1:12.09. That brought the meet to its final event — the 400-yard relay. The NCMP foursome of Colville, Rachel Prendergast, Jenkins and Hedrick was out to qualify for state for the second year in a row plus lower the school mark (3:43.31) they set in 2012. “We knew we had a chance at the school record and we went for it,” Jenkins said. “I’m always more relaxed in the relays.” The Aquagirls again touched right before Des Moines Roosevelt in the 400yard relay race. NCMP took second in 3:41.56, setting a new school record, and Roosevelt was third in 3:41.85. NCMP had to wait until all the regional results were in from across the state. Regional champions earn a state berth then it comes down to times. It was official Saturday evening — all three of the NCMP relays are headed to the state meet along with Scotton and Hedrick in the butterfly and Jenkins in the backstroke.

State: Hawk girls fifth in Class 1A; CMB’s Deutsch runs 85th Continued from Page 1B discussed some strategy that might help her overcome what could sometimes be an overwhelming experience for a freshman runner. “When we were talking race strategy we discussed the importance of starting the race fast,” Tomas said. “She put herself in a good position early and maintained that for the entire race.” “It was all about starting fast, just getting out to a really good start and maintaining it throughout,” Hostetter added. Hostetter admitted she was a tad intimidated by the girth of both the field and the crowd, but her whole team came up to provide support, something she said was both needed and appreciated. “It was scary, but fun,” she said. “I was happy to have my whole team come up with me. That was the most fun part, just to seem them all there for support.” Lynnville-Sully’s entire girls’ team got an opportunity to run, and the Hawks took advantage of their moment. L-S finished fifth overall with 145 points in Class 1A. Pekin won the state title with 81 points, followed by Pochontas Area (113), Elkader Central (126) and South Wineshiek (142). “The girls’ team has been one of the best teams in Class 1A over the last four years, having made it to the state meet in 2010, 2012 and now this year,” L-S coach Darin Arkema said. “In 2010, they finished 9th and were 10th last year. For them to finish in 5th place on Saturday and just 3 points from 4th was an absolutely awesome performance by all of them. It is the highest team finish at state for a Lynnville-Sully team since 1996 when the girls’ team was state champions.” Leading the charge for the Hawks was senior Tara Vos. Vos finished 31st with a time of 16:06. She was happy with her effort and even more pleased to have her whole team there to run with her. “I thought I did good,” Vos said. “It was hard, but having so many people to keep up with actually helped out. Having my whole team there definitely made it easier on me. I was proud of how the team finished, both

the seniors and the new runners as well.” Senior Alexa Vander Leest placed four spots behind Vos with a time of 16:11. That was her fastest time of the season by more than 20 seconds, according to Arkema. She has been on all three Hawk teams that went to state the past four years. “I felt like I did pretty good. It really was easier than I thought it was going to be,” Vander Leest said. “It was over so quick. There’s so many people, and the crowd is so charged up. It’s really excited. I was happy with how are team finished. We beat three teams that we really weren’t supposed to. That makes me really proud.” Cori Rice was four spots behind Vander Leest, running 16:15. She was followed by Karli Roozeboom in 44th at 16:22. Elizabeth Van Manen was 95th in 17:53. Kasiah Ehresman Rice ran 104th at 18:12, and Line Ascanius placed 116th at 18:42. Arkema had plenty to say about all of his girls’ runners following what was an exciting day for Lynnville-Sully cross country. “Cori improved on last year’s showing by seven seconds and I’m sure will be looking to get one more chance to race here next year,” Arkema said. “Karli had a tremendous improvement from last year’s race, dropping over 30 seconds. Elizabeth, Kasiah, and Line all got their first taste of what the state cross country meet was all about. They seemed relaxed and handled things very well prior to the race. They did a good job of getting off the starting line, but not getting caught up into a crazy fast start.” Another reason for Arkema’s excitement was sophomore Canyon Kuhlman — the lone Hawk boy at state. Kuhlman took 49th overall with a run of 17:52.9. He was surprisingly calm and confident, and it showed in his run. Kuhlman talked about his race afterwards. “I felt really proud of how I ran,” Kuhlman said. “I really didn’t think it was that

hard to be honest. The spectators really helped. I liked all the cheering and the noise. It’s a fun environment for me. I’m proud of how I ran, and I just want to keep improving from here.”’ “Canyon might have been one of the youngest if not the youngest to ever qualify individually for the state meet from Lynnville-Sully,” Arkema added. “Watching him, you wouldn’t have guessed him to be a sophomore or a first time qualifier. He was prepared and relaxed, had a goal and game plan, and raced tough. He improved a bunch from his freshman to sophomore year, and learned a lot over the course of this season to become a smarter runner. I believe he’ll put in the work and training to get stronger and improve.” For CMB, Raider senior Mark Deutsch was a lone wolf at the state meet. Deutsch finished off his career as a Raider distance runner with an 85th place run of 18:14. According to CMB Deutsch coach Jerry Meinerts, the overall result was a little bit disappointing, but he commented on the terrific experience it was to be at the meet. “What a great experience for Mark,” Meinerts said. “Mark had a great season, ran some great times this year, earning all conference honors in one of the best cross country conferences in the state, finishing top 10 at the state qualifying meet.” “Some meets you run well, and some meets you just don’t have it, and unfortunately today was one of those days,” Meinerts added. “I think that Mark went out a little fast running that first mile around 5:12, struggled that second mile, but really composed himself and ran a great last mile.” PCM had freshman Rachel Stafford compete in her first trip to stare. Stafford’s time of 16:49.2 placed her 61st overall. The time was a personal-best on the season for Stafford, according to the team’s statistics listed on

Coen: Best time ranked fourth in state Continued from Page 1B

Some of that pride should resonate in Coen after being Newton’s only state qualifier. In addition, she was an All-Conference runner in the Little Hawkeye Conference. Her personal pest time of 14:31 was the fourth fastest in the state this season. That ranking of No. 4 in the state is the highest of any Newton girls’ cross country runner. Coen is moving on from an exhausting day with a clearer head and more motivated than ever. She intends to be back on the track for the Cardinals this season, with Drake Relays and another state berth well within her sights.

Former catcher Ausmus named Tigers’ manager DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers hired Brad Ausmus as their new manager, turning to a 44-year-old former catcher with almost no managerial experience to replace Jim Leyland at the helm of the three-time defending AL Central champions. Ausmus, who worked most recently in the San Diego Padres’ front office as a special assistant to the general manager, emerged as Detroit’s pick less than two weeks after Leyland stepped down.

Do you feel new in some way? Yesterday’s new moon and total solar eclipse in Scorpio happened in darkness, but they flipped a light switch on in some area of life that needed to change. Ride the gathering momentum by planning, writing things down, talking with like minds and getting focused on your next steps.

later be happy with the outcome.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 4). You’ll enjoy a better quality of relationships in settling in with the kind of twosomes that meet the needs of both people. Your plans will change, but keep making them, adjusting and rewriting to get more of what you want out of life. Your work gets thunderous applause in January and March. May and August bring visitors. Capricorn and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 29, 2, 16, 10 and 38.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Procrastination is a trap. Remind yourself often throughout the day that by taking action now (even though it might feel unpleasant) you avoid getting into a bad position later.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are not always rational, and you are not always emotional. You’ll employ a perfect mix of the two in today’s decisions and

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to know whether you are doing something wrong, but a person who fears you, or respects you a great deal, may not offer a correction unless you ask directly for feedback.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone likes the idea of progress, but far fewer people like the idea of change. You’ll realize that progress without change is impossible and start wrapping your head around what’s to come. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). An interestingly imbalanced relationship will be a feature of the day. Maybe someone knows quite a lot

about you, while you know very little about him, or perhaps there’s a difference of attraction levels. ARIES (March 21-April 19). The quality of your day will depend on your ability to stay focused and persevere. The tantalizing distractions around you will cease to be such when you’re convinced that you have something better to do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One way to avoid indulging in short-term pleasures that are bad for you is not to give yourself the option. Rid your environment of temptations, and you won’t have to resist. You just won’t think about it at all. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Under stress, you are more likely to misbehave. Do the thing that will bring your stress level down or, better yet, the thing that will keep stress from entering your life. CANCER (June 22-July 22). By being willing to lis-

ten to everyone in a hierarchy -- those who rank both lower and higher than you -you will reduce the number of mistakes you make. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t like being told things gratuitously, especially things you already know. That’s why you are careful not to offer unwanted advice to others. Your motivation is to help, which you’ll do more by asking than by telling. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your life is the way it is in part because of the people you choose to put in it. The way today plays out will depend on with whom you decide to spend your hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are dependent on someone to accomplish a task, and so it is imperative that you build a relationship with this person that supports solid, task-related communication. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
