On a brisk and cold Veterans Day, students at Thomas Jefferson Elementary and Des Moines Area Community College-Newton, as well as Newton’s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1655 held commemorative events. At their event, Thomas Jefferson students performed a number of songs for the veterans of the community and their relatives who were in attendance. They also assembled a wall as a background for their assembly, which honored 65 veterans who were related to the students. A number of veterans were invited to take part in the ceremony by Julie Francisco, who coordinated the assembly. She said the students had been practicing the songs for weeks at morning announcements. “I was very impressed with how the assembly went and with the response from relatives, but as well as our community veterans,” she said. The VFW held its own celebration that included a presentation of colors and the laying of commemorative wreaths in honor of the veterans. U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack was the keynote speaker at the event. The congressman, who has not personally served, gave a heartfelt speech about why veterans affairs are still a personal matter to him. He is the brother and father of veterans. Loebsack’s brother served in Vietnam, and he has children who are currently serving. The theme of his speech was about doing more for our troops outside of Veterans Day. He urged the crowd to put pressure on not only him, but other politicians as well. He spoke of his journey with veterans and how he has always felt humbled by the response of veterans. The event closed with an outdoor gun salute to the vets. In the afternoon, many of the same veterans and family members attended a VETERANS See Page 5A

The Newton Board of Education praised the school district Monday night for its second district-wide focus learning effort. Superintendent Bob Callaghan expressed his impressions of the district-wide learning and celebration of Veterans Day, which was the second part of a focused learning project for schools. The project began with honoring the victims of 9/11 and will conclude with another learning event on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. “The school district did a fantastic job with the focused learning for Veterans Day,” Superintendent Bob Callaghan said. He made a special note of the celebration at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School. The school honored 65 veterans on a wall that was used as the background for the assembly. All the students joined in singing patriotic songs lead by teacher Julie Francisco. “The students have been preparing all month for this event. Since I’m not the music teacher, we practiced over the intercom,” Francisco said. Berg Middle School students wore red, white and blue to honor the veterans. The complete celebration used many forms of technology for the students to gain a better understanding to the true meaning of Veterans Day. At 11 a.m., the fifth and sixth grade students replicated the changing of the guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. The Board of Education was proud of the celebrations and the learning of the true meaning of Veterans Day.

IRS warns of scam Special to the Daily News The Internal Revenue Service is warning consumers about a sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, throughout the country. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and must pay it promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If victims refuse to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting. “This scam has hit taxpayers in nearly every state in the country. We want to educate taxpayers so they can help protect themselves. Rest assured, we do not and will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer,” said IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel. “If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and threatens police arrest, deportation or license revocation if you don’t pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn’t the IRS calling.”  Werfel noted that the first IRS contact with taxpayers on a tax issue is likely to occur via mail.   Anyone who has been targeted by this scam should contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their “FTC Complaint Assistant” at FTC. gov.  Add “IRS Telephone Scam” to the comments of the complaint. The Newton Police Department has not been made aware of anyone in Newton being targeted by the scam but wants to remind local citizens to always be suspicious of anybody who calls or texts asking for personal information. Never give credit card, bank or Social Security information over the phone unless you initiated the call in the first place. If the caller says that they are representing a local business or the IRS, as in this case, it is always best to contact that local business or the IRS to verify the validity of the request.

Authorities await testing in death of Iowa girl, 3 IOWA CITY (AP) — A prosecutor on Monday defended his decision to wait for additional testing before deciding whether to bring murder charges against a northwest Iowa day care provider who allegedly admitted to causing injuries that killed a 3-year-old girl in her care. Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister said he is waiting for the state medical examiner to rule on the manner and cause of death of Autumn Elgersma before deciding whether to charge Rochelle Sapp, 33, with murder or any other charges. The medical examiner’s office has requested additional testing on Autumn’s brain by pathologists at the University of Iowa, a process that could take two weeks or longer, investigators said. Investigators say that Sapp was watching Autumn on Oct. 29 at her home day care in Orange City when the girl was taken to the emergency room with serious head injuries. Doctors later discovered that she had a fractured skull and

serious brain trauma and asked for an investigation into possible child abuse. Autumn’s mother initially told authorities that the injuries happened when the child fell down a flight of stairs while being watched at Sapp’s home. But investigators say the injuries did not appear to be consistent with such a fall, and that Sapp admitted during questioning that she caused the injuries by throwing her to the floor after becoming angry with her. Sapp was arrested on a warrant charging her with willful injury and child endangerment resulting in serious injury on Oct. 31, the day the girl died. McAllister dismissed those charges last week, saying they were no longer appropriate after the death. He said the initial charges were based on a medical opinion given by emergency room doctors, and he wants to review the medical examiner’s conclusions before deciding how to proceed. “What we want to do is try to make sure that we have the evidence that we

need to make a good charging decision and ultimately make sure that we get justice for Autumn,” he said. “If that is going to be filing additional charges, reinitiating old charges, whatever that is, we need the evidence before we can move forward.” Orange City Police Chief Jim Pottebaum said the testing could rule out other potential causes of death in a case that has saddened the community. “We’re just doing everything we can here to make sure everything is done correctly,” he said. Mitch Mortvedt, special agent in charge with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said that charges could have been filed based on Sapp’s alleged confession, but that McAllister and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office agreed they needed more corroborating evidence before doing so. He noted that Sapp had been released on bail last week without restrictions on her movement.

Usual Eccentric

Joe Heller Cartoon

You should try reading between the lines It is very hard for me to resist the urge to body slam complete strangers from time to time. The temptation is at a fevered pitch whenever I am standing in the checkout line at the grocery or department store. I am not talking about any old line at the store. I am referencing the By Will E Sanders 12 items or less Creators Syndicate line. It is not that hard of a concept to grasp. Count your items. Does that number equal 12 or a lower number? If yes, this is the line for you. This would be the line for you because there is an actual sign hanging up above that reads — in English and Spanish — that this is the line for people with 12 items or less. Most people who can count to 12 without using their fingers and have some form of semblance toward mankind already understand the vast complexities of the 12 items or less line. Pop quiz, hotshot: You have 13 or more items in your cart, what do you do? What do you do! Answer: Get out of my line. There is a reason why it is called the 12 items or less line and not the two-dozen items or less line or the 33 items or less line. It’s not guesswork. A person should know going in to that line the exact number of items he or she has. Otherwise the whole sense of efficiency the line represents is tarnished. I think some people in a 12 items or less line live in a fantasy world. A fantasy world where the rule breakers think every customer behind them in line can’t clearly count the number of items in their shopping cart. Wake up! You’re not fooling anyone. The other day there was this rather portly woman in front of me who had a shopping cart filled with items that led me to believe she was a doomsday preparation enthusiast. She clearly had more than 12 items. I just wanted to perform the Walmart equivalent of a citizen’s arrest on the lady. I wanted to place every item from her cart on the rubber conveyor belt one by one and then hand her over to store authorities for what I imagine to be a severe flogging. But that’s the other problem I have with the 12 items or less line. There is no authority. Just once — and I mean just once — I would like to see some guys dressed like secret operatives swoop in on some unsuspecting customer with way more than 12 items and say, “Ma’am, you’re going to need to come with us.” And then they lead her away, never to be seen or heard from again. Coupons should be forbidden in the 12 items or less line. The line lives and dies on its effectiveness. Coupons grind store lines to a halt. All it takes is someone wanting to save 15 cents on a can of baked beans and before you know it the wait in line becomes an agonizing ordeal. The 12 items or less line can be deceiving. That’s my theory as to why so many people wind up there with more than 12 items. It’s always located at the very end of the store and appears like a mirage on the horizon. It’s usually a short line that moves quickly. I think that’s where all the envelope pushers come from. They think, “I have about 15 or so items, I should be all right.” Bam! Next thing they know I get behind them in line and intently begin thinking about body slamming them on the linoleum tile. Silly fools, it is not called the 15 items or less line. People who have more than 12 items are overdue for a good body slamming. I have found most people who can’t follow or fathom the rules of the 12 items or less line — and I should know because I stalk them out to the parking lot — are the same ones who refuse to place their carts in the cart corral. Most of them act like they have 12 brain cells or less.

Work Daze

Mindfulness for the mindless Who’d have thunk it? Your ability to turn off your brain the minute you arrive at work has become a skill that people everywhere are struggling to emulate. These are famous, successful people, too. They’re glittery overachievers By Bob Goldman who pay large Creators Syndicate sums of money to learn what you do instinctually — spend the workday as a zombie. Really! Forget the last 10 years of negative performance reports. As an employee who faces tight deadlines with zero consciousness, you are a workplace superstar. There is even a special name for your gift of being brain dead from 9 to 5; it’s called “mindfulness.” Or so I learned recently in The New York Times, where David Hochman reported on the phenomena in an article titled “Mindfulness: Getting its Share of Attention.” Apparently, in the face of all the wonderful distractions we have to help us escape from real life, like computer games, sexting and, of course, the awesome new season of “Scandal,” some people want to focus on what they are actually doing and who they are actually doing it with. Consider an event called “Disconnect to Connect,” an exclusive meet-up where the young and the technical got introduced to a nifty app called Get Some Headspace. “It’s a way to have a meditation practice without feeling weird about

it,” the speaker told attendees. “You don’t have to sit in a lotus position. You just press ‘play’ and chill out.” As someone who has enough “headspace” to house a mid-sized American city, you probably don’t understand why anyone requires a computer program to fill their head with nothing. And I’m sure you have achieved your advanced state of cerebral emptiness without having to resort to the lotus position. (What these geeks should be learning is how to achieve your yoga position — the decaying mushroom.) Meanwhile, at Internet goliath Google, Chade-Meng Tan, a veteran engineer, teaches an in-house course called “Search Inside Yourself,” which teaches a variety of techniques to achieve mindfulness, “a loose term that covers an array of attention-training practices.” The goal of shutting out the world and embracing the void “may mean spending 10 minutes with eyes closed on a gold-threaded pillow every morning,” the Googler teaches. That may come as a surprise to everyone at work who raises their eyebrows when you take out your pillow, prop it up on your keyboard, and doze away the morning. Your colleagues think you are a slacker, when really what you are is a guru. It’s not only high-tech strivers who are trying to take up residence in the void in which you live. Famous people like Candice Bergan, George Stephanopoulos, 50 Cent and Lena Dunham are “talking up” their meditation routines. Of course, these celebrities can afford to pay for a swami-type to provide them with a magic mantra. You didn’t pay a dime for your mantra:

“Is it time for lunch yet? Is it time to go home? Is it time for lunch yet? Is it time to go home? Is it time for lunch yet? Is it time to go home?” Ah! Inner peace! In addition to big stars, big corporations are also doing something to promote nothing. As reporter Hochman reports, “Nike, General Mills, Target and Aetna encourage employees to sit and do nothing, and with classes that show them how.” I say — get out your resume. These are not classes you should attend, but classes you should teach. Google’s Tan, whose official title is Jolly Good Fellow, has even been invited to Goldman Sachs to teach employees “techniques like pausing before sending important emails and silently wishing happiness upon difficult co-workers.” Again, these are skills you have already mastered. Before sending important emails, you’ve paused for months, and when, at company parties, you secretly record the sex antics of the difficult co-workers with whom you compete, you do silently wish them happiness before you send the videos off to HR. It’s why you have been given the official title of Jolly Annoying Fellow. My final thought on the mindfulness matter is that before you return to normal zombie state, consider monetizing your amazing ability to put up a permanent “No Vacancy” sign on your brain. When compared to the expense incurred by sportswear manufacturer Lululemon, to start a website “that encourages visitors to turn off the brain for 60 seconds by visualizing a dot,” a $25,000-a-day seminar from you would be a bargain. And you don’t need any darn dot.

Veterans Continued from Page 1A ceremony at DMACC. There, honors student Gary Barrett, a retired Army command sergeant major, spoke about his many interactions with soldiers and veterans. He admonished veterans to tell their stories to others. He also encouraged family members to share their veterans’ stories, so that future generations can know what sacrifices had been made to ensure the freedoms we enjoy today. “Tell your story. Tell it with pride. Tell it as often as you can,” he said. Among the veterans’ stories Barrett told was that of a World War II vet who had been a prisoner-of-war. Barrett said he told the man he was a hero, but the veteran stopped him. The vet said the heroes had either been buried in a grave in Europe or brought home in a casket. “Since that fateful day of Sept. 11, we have 14,000 new veterans in Iowa,” he said. “I went to nearly every deployment. It was not a duty I necessarily enjoyed, but one I felt I had to do.” Barrett also reminded the audience to be thankful for first responders, such as police officers, firefighters and EMTs. He said, much like the military, they are always on call, 24-7, to protect us. “Often, they are the only reason we live to fight another day,” he said. “We should thank them just as you would a veteran.” Barrett also thanked the families who often share in the burden Visit Hammer for your Mastectomy Products.

Longtime gay couple may be better off not marrying DEAR ABBY: I have been with my partner, “Harold,” for 11 years. After gay marriage passed here in Minnesota, Harold told me he didn’t want to marry me because of my credit rating. I find this insulting and humiliating. Worse, the day marriage equality passed, we were with some friends of mine, and he bluntly told them, “I don’t want to marry him because of his FICO score!” It was very embarrassing. I have also learned that Harold has been telling anyone he knows some of my private information. What can I say to him to get him to stop revealing things about me to people we don’t know well? I have asked him plenty of times not to mention my private life to others, but he still brings up information I’d prefer others not know. Should I end the relationship? I think in some way if I do, that I’ll be better off without him. But after 11 years and all that he’s done for me, I’d feel really sad. I’d appreciate any advice you give me. — FRUSTRATED IN MINNEAPOLIS DEAR FRUSTRATED: I agree that after all these years you have much time and emotion invested in your relationship with Harold. Although I’m sure he has many virtues, sensitivity and discretion do not appear to be among them. It would be interesting to know if Harold would be willing to marry you if your FICO score improved, or if he’s using it as an excuse because he doesn’t want a legal commitment. Even if the two of you did marry, you would still have a partner who lacks discretion about what should be private. If this is important to you, Harold may not be the spouse for you because he isn’t likely to change. Couples counseling could help you decide what to do next. Inquire at your nearest gay and lesbian community center about any seminars it offers for longtime couples on this important subject. Just because people CAN marry doesn’t necessarily mean they should. DEAR ABBY: Our son recently came to us and confessed that three years ago he’d had an affair with a married woman

who had two children. He ran into her recently, and she told him she now has three children, and the most recent one — age 3 — is his daughter. She’s still married to the man she cheated on, and our son says he’s still in love with her. We told our son that because she says the child is his doesn’t necessarily mean it is, and if her husband didn’t question the pregnancy, it’s possible the child is her husband’s. We advised our son to get a paternity test. Our son is now so angry with us for suggesting it that he won’t speak to us. He said if we can’t support him and the woman he loves, we should stay out of his life. He said she plans to leave her husband. (It has been three weeks and she’s still there.) I think she was just trying to get our son’s attention. Was our suggestion unreasonable? We don’t support this kind of behavior or their lack of morals. The woman’s husband is the only dad this little girl knows, and he thinks she’s his child. Our son needs to know if this is his daughter. What a mess! What do we do next? — ON THE OUTS IN CALIFORNIA DEAR ON THE OUTS: Your suggestion to your son was not only reasonable, it was the same clearheaded advice he would have received from an attorney. What you do next is ... nothing, except letting him know you’re there for him if he needs you. This is your son’s affair, literally, and he is going to have to deal with whatever consequences are the result.

Freshman Derrick Hurt starts for NW Red Raiders By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor ORANGE CITY — Derrick Hurt, former Newton Senior High School standout, has made an impact as a true f re s h m a n football player for Northwestern C o l l e g e ’s Red Raiders this Hurt fall. Hurt earned a starting spot as a nose tackle for the Red Raider defense. He had two assisted tackles in last Saturday’s upset win over NAIA topranked Morningside. Northwestern College is 19th-ranked and defeated Morningside, 3828, on senior day in a Great Plains Athletic Conference football contest at DeValois Stadium in Orange City. It was the fifth straight win for the Red Raiders as they improve to 6-2 in the GPAC, 7-2 overall. The loss snapped a 25game regular season win streak for the Mustangs, who fell to 7-1 in the GPAC, 8-1 overall. Hurt is a 6-1, 282-pound defensive lineman for the Red Raiders. In nine games in the 2013 season, Hurt has nine solo

tackles, 11 assisted tackles, and two tackles for loss. He made a fumble recovery for the Red Raiders to set up a touchdown in a 24-17 win over Briar Cliff on Oct. 12. Northwestern will head to Fremont, Neb. to play Midland this coming Saturday. Hurt is the son of Darren and Karen Hurt of Newton. He played three years for the NHS Cardinals. As a senior at NHS, he had 48 tackles, 15 for a loss and two quarterback sacks, earning second-team all-state honors. Hurt garnered all-district honors three straight years. Hurt drew mention by Red Raider head coach Kyle Achterhoff, who is in his fifth season as head coach, as part of the depth on the defensive front going into the season. “Derrick is a special football player and athlete,” Achterhoff said of Hurt when he was signed to a letter of intent in the spring. “He will be a difference maker on our football team, the track and field team and our campus. Derrick used his strength and quickness to disrupt offenses in high school and we think he will do the same for us as a Red Raider.” Hurt will also be competing in track and field for Northwestern College.

Jacob Hall/Special to the Daily News Newton Senior High School alumnus Derrick Hurt (95) gets in on a tackle of top-rated Morningside College’s sophomore running back Brandon Wehger, a former star for the University of Iowa, during Northwestern College’s 38-28 victory over the Mustangs. Hurt, a true freshman, is the Red Raiders’ starting nose tackle on defense.

Iowa State defeats North Dakota in opener AMES, Iowa (AP) — Hallie Christofferson scored a career-high 32 points to go along with 11 rebounds as No. 23 Iowa State beat North Dakota 8455 Sunday in the season opener for both teams.

Iowa comes back to beat Nebraska-Omaha IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Aaron White had 20 points and a career-high 15 rebounds as Iowa came from behind to beat Nebraska-Omaha 83-75 on Sunday. Iowa (2-0) sunk 38 free throws to overcome 18 turnovers and a rough shooting night from the outside. Devyn Marble added 15 points for the Hawkeyes. C.J. Carter scored 22 points for Omaha (1-1). The Mavericks led for

Bucs hold off Dolphins for first victory TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — No lead had been safe for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season. So it was up to the defense to help them get their first win of the season. Rookie Mike Glennon threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tackle Donald Penn and led a long fourth-quarter TD drive to put the Buccaneers ahead for good in a 2219 victory over the embattled Miami Dolphins on Monday night. Bobby Rainey’s 1-yard run capped an 80-yard drive, and the Bucs held on the final 10 minutes to become the last team in the league to win this season. Jacksonville beat Tennessee on Sunday, leaving Tampa Bay (1-8) as the league’s only winless team entering the game. The Bucs held fourth-quarter leads in four of their eight losses, losing each time in the final 89 seconds of regulation or overtime. “It had the same feeling going down the stretch,” coach Greg Schiano said after his team won for only the second time in 15 games dating to last season. “But our guys bowed up and made some plays.” “It was rough. It was scary, I’m not going to lie,” linebacker Adam Heyward said, recalling the Bucs blew a 21-point lead before losing at Seattle eight days earlier. “It looked like last week. The guys, like

their half- time lead to 47-35. North Dakota never threatened in the second half. Nicole Blaskowsky scored 14 points and added a career-high 10 rebounds while Nikki Moody added 10 points. Madi Buck led North Dakota with 16 points, and Megan Lauck scored 13. Mia Loyd led the team with 10 rebounds. North Dakota struggled from the field, shooting only 30 percent. The win brought Iowa State’s seasonopener record to a perfect 19-0 under head coach Bill Fennelly. Iowa State hosts South Dakota Wednesday.

Lavonte (David) and a bunch of us just said we’re tired of it,” Heyward added. “We can’t do it again, and everybody just started stepping up and making plays.” Playing for the first time since a bullying scandal broke in the Dolphins locker room, Miami (4-5) started slowly before overcoming an early 15-0 deficit to lead 19-15 heading into the fourth quarter. Ryan Tannehill threw touchdown passes of 6 and 19 yards to Rishard Matthews, but got no help from a running game that was limited to just 2 yards rushing. The Bucs sacked Tannehill twice on Miami’s final possession before Darrelle Revis intercepted Tannehill’s fourth-down desperation throw intended for Mike Wallace with 1:35 remaining. Glennon completed 11 of 21 for 139 yards in his sixth pro start. The thirdround draft pick threw his first interception in four games — a span of 159 attempts — to set up a third-quarter field goal that put the Dolphins up 19-15. Tannehill finished 27 of 42 for 229 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The Bucs saluted Hall of Famer Warren Sapp at halftime, retiring his No. 99 jersey and inducting the 1999 NFL defensive player of the year and 2002 Super Bowl champion into the team’s Ring of Honor.

most of the game before faltering down the stretch. The teams were tied at 66-66 with 6 1⁄2 minutes left when Iowa used a 12-2 spurt to finally pull away. Anthony Clemmons hit a rare 3-pointer to start the run — Iowa only shot 3 of 14 from behind the arc. Omaha went nearly five minutes without a field goal during that stretch. Iowa’s offense relied on its ability to attack

the rim and get to the foul line. The Hawkeyes shot 38 of 42 free throws. White and Marble combined to make 21 of 26. The Mavericks had 15 second- chance points in the half to lead 43-36 at halftime. The Hawkeyes bench had 35 points. Zach McCabe scored 12 points and Clemmons added 11. The Hawkeyes play at home Thursday against Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Florida State takes firm hold of second in BCS standings By Ralph D. Russo AP College Football Writer Florida State took firm hold of second place in the BCS standings behind top- ranked Alabama and grabbed the inside track to the national championship game. The Seminoles were second last week, but seemed likely to get passed by Oregon if the Ducks could have remained unbeaten. Stanford, however, handed Oregon its first loss of the season Thursday night and Florida State benefited. The Seminoles (.9619) are a solid second in the USA Today coaches’ poll and Harris poll, and second in the computer rankings that make up the final third of a BCS average. Ohio State (.8926) is third in the polls but fourth in the computers. The Buckeyes are closer to fourth-place Stanford (.8689) than Florida State. Unbeaten Baylor (.8618) is fifth, not far behind the Cardi-

nal (.8689). But Florida State and Alabama appear headed for a BCS championship game matchup if they can avoid being upset. Florida State’s 51-14 victory against Clemson in the middle of October sent the Seminoles surging past Ohio State in the polls. The Buckeyes haven’t had a chance to change the momentum because they haven’t played ranked opponents since beating Wisconsin and Northwestern in back-to-back weeks in late September and early October. Unbeaten Fresno State of the Mountain West moved up to No. 14. The Bulldogs need a top-12 finish to secure the so-called BCS buster bid as an automatic qualifier from a non-AQ conference. They also need to be the highest rated non-AQ champion. Undefeated Northern Illinois of the Mid-American Conference is 15th and trying to be a BCS Buster for the second straight season.

NASCAR’s Bayne says he has multiple sclerosis CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne said Tuesday that he has multiple sclerosis and he does not expect it to impact his racing career. Bayne, who in 2011 became the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history, will still compete as scheduled at Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series finales. Bayne’s younger sister, Sarah, also has multiple sclerosis. “There are currently no symptoms and I’m committed to continuing to take the best care of my body as possible,” Bayne said in a statement. “As for now, I want to close out the season strong this weekend at Homestead and then shift my focus on getting ready to compete for the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) Championship in 2014.” The 22-year-old Bayne was sidelined for five races in 2011 for an illness that led to hospitalization at the Mayo Clinic. Doctors ultimately called it an “inflammatory condition,” and it was never made clear if it was related to an insect bite he’d suffered weeks earlier.

He underwent a spinal tap during his hospitalization, and doctors ruled out Lyme disease at the time. Bayne was initially admitted to the Bayne Mayo Clinic in 2011 for nausea, fatigue and double vision. He’d been treated weeks earlier following a race at Texas after experiencing numbness in his arm while driving, and thought the condition was related to the insect bite. MS is a potentially disabling disease in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. Symptoms can be mild, such as fatigue, or severe, including paralysis or loss of vision. There is no cure, but treatment can help manage symptoms and reduce the progress of the disease. “I’ve never been more driven to compete,” Bayne said. “My goals are the same as they’ve been since I started racing. I want to compete

at the highest level and I want to win races and championships. I am in the best shape I’ve ever been in and I feel good.” Bayne was 20 when he won the Daytona 500 in 2011 driving for The Wood Brothers. It was his first Daytona 500 and briefly propelled him to national fame as the fresh new face of NASCAR. But he was only driving a partial Cup schedule that year, and he was out of his Nationwide car eight races later when he became ill. Bayne said he is still scheduled to drive for Roush-Fenway Racing full-time next season in the Nationwide Series, and a partial Cup schedule for The Wood Brothers. He goes into this weekend with one Nationwide Series win this year — at Iowa — and is ranked sixth in the points standings. “We are 100 percent supportive of Trevor and his ability to compete in a race car,” Roush Fenway team owner Jack Roush said. “As with all of our drivers, we look forward to standing behind Trevor and providing him with all of the tools he needs as he continues to develop in his young career.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Jose Fernandez arrived early. Wil Myers made it big after a blockbuster trade. Neither one needed much time to create a splash, and together they brought both Rookie of the Year awards back to Florida. Fernandez stood out in a very deep National League class this season, and the precocious Miami Marlins pitcher received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers’ Association of America panel in results announced Monday. Myers won the American League prize after the Tampa Bay slugger put up impressive offensive numbers in barely half a season. The right fielder was chosen first on 23 of 30 ballots, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer. “Honestly, when I was called up that didn’t even cross my mind. As the season went on I could see I would have a chance,” Myers said on a conference call from his North Carolina home. “To be able to win is just a huge honor and I’m very excited Myers about it.” The two announcements marked the beginning of awards week in baseball. NL and AL Manager of the Year will be revealed Tuesday, with the Cy Young winners Wednesday and MVPs on Thursday. Fernandez easily topped runner-up Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers as Cuban players ran 1-2 in the NL race. The only previous Rookie of the Year winFernandez ners from Cuba came in the AL: Jose Canseco in 1986 and Tony Oliva in 1964. “It means a lot just to be compared to those guys,” Fernandez said. “I’m not sure I was even born when those guys were playing. But for sure I heard the names before. ... All the kids in Cuba play baseball.” Puig received the other four firstplace votes and amassed 95 points to 142 for Fernandez, who made the All-Star team at age 20. He went 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA and 187 strikeouts for a last-place club that finished 62100. “I’m very happy that he won,” Puig told MLB.com in comments circulated by the Dodgers. “He worked really hard to achieve this and he pitched extremely well with Miami and he deserved this just as we deserved to be nominated. I am happy for him, that a Cuban won. I’m happy his grandmother arrived and I hope he enjoys his time with his grandmother and enjoys the prize he won.”

13 free agents turn down qualifying offers ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Baseball’s annual gathering of general managers began Monday when $14.1 million qualifying offers were turned down by all 13 free agents who received them from their former teams, a group that included Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox. Three New York Yankees also said no thanks: Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson and Hiroki Kuroda. The others turning down Cano the offers were Atlanta’s Brian McCann, Cincinnati’s Shin-Soo Choo, Cleveland’s Ubaldo Jimenez, Kansas City’s Ervin Santana, St. Louis’ Carlos Beltran, Seattle’s Kendrys Morales and Texas’ Nelson Cruz. “I don’t think it’s that particularly surprising that all the offers were turned down across baseball,” Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said. New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson interpreted the turndowns as an indicator a bull market is possible. “That ought to tell you a little bit about their expectations,” he said. If a player who turned down the offer signs with a new team, his former club would receive an extra amateur draft pick at the end of the first round next June. All 22 players given qualifying offers have said no during two offseasons under the new system. “When we made the qualifying of-

fers, we did not expect anyone to accept. We would have been happy if any of them did,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. Cashman was an early arrival at the sessions, with some GMs due to check in on Monday night. In addition to early talks with agents and trade feelers, GMs will hold rules discussions, such as whether there should be any limitations on bowling over catchers. Owners then arrive for their fall meeting on Thursday morning, with expanded instant replay on the agenda. A baseball official familiar with the deliberations, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said management probably would approve the additional video review by umpires in phases. The go-ahead to spend the funds probably will occur Thursday. Approval of the rules likely would be put off until the January owners’ meeting. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. For expanded replay to start next season, agreements with the World Umpires Association and Major League Baseball Players Association would have to be reached. “Both parties are working diligently to iron out every possible scenario that could occur with a replay,” WUA President Joe West said. These meetings usually are the spark for trades and signings later in the offseason. The pace figures to increase during the winter meetings, to be held in nearby Lake Buena Vista from Dec. 9-12. “These meetings will probably be mostly about just getting information,”

NBA Capsules INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Paul George scored 23 points and Lance Stephenson had the first triple-double of his career, leading the perfect Indiana Pacers to a 95-79 victory Monday night over the Memphis Grizzlies. Indiana became the NBA’s seventh team to open 8-0 since 2000 — two more wins than the franchise’s previous best start. And they followed a familiar script in the battle between last season’s conference runner-ups by dominating the glass, dominating the second half and divvying up top honors. Stephenson finished with 13 points, 11 rebounds and a careerhigh 12 assists. George Hill scored 13 points and Roy Hibbert added five more blocks to his NBA-leading total. Memphis was led by Marc Gasol with 15 points and Zach Randolph with 12. Bulls 96, Cavaliers 81 CHICAGO (AP) — Derrick Rose had 16 points before leaving in the fourth quarter with a right hamstring injury, and Chicago pulled away from Cleveland. Rose grimaced after he drove down the lane for a twisting layup with 3:39 left. He remained in the game for a short time before he was pulled for Kirk Hinrich, and a trainer then attended to the 2011 NBA MVP at the end of the

bench. Coach Tom Thibodeau said it looks like Rose has a “minor” hamstring injury. He said Rose will be reevaluated on Tuesday. Kyrie Irving had 16 points for Cleveland, but was 5 for 19 from the field in his first game against Rose. The Cavaliers committed 20 turnovers, leading to 29 points for the Bulls. Clippers 109, Timberwolves 107 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Griffin had 25 points and 10 rebounds, Chris Paul added 21 points and Los Angeles held off Minnesota after Kevin Love missed a tip-in at the buzzer. Kevin Martin missed a jumper that Nikola Pekovic rebounded, only to miss the layup. Love grabbed the ball and missed again to end the Wolves’ two-game winning streak. Paul had 11 assists, Jamal Crawford scored 18 points and DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 11 rebounds to help the Clippers improve to 3-0 at home. Martin scored 30 points for the Wolves, who lost their sixth straight against the Clippers. Pekovic added 25 points, and Love had 23 points and 19 rebounds. The Wolves ended a 22-game series losing streak against the Lakers on Sunday, and nearly stopped their skid against Staples Center’s other NBA team.

Cherington said. “I’d be surprised if anything actually happens in the next three days.” With many clubs seeking top starting pitching, Tampa Bay is expected at some point to trade 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner David Price, who is eligible for free agency after the 2015 season. Detroit’s Max Scherzer, Price favored to win a Cy Young on Wednesday, can be a free agent in 12 months and the Tigers may try to gauge what he would bring in return. Texas would consider offers for middle infielders Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus to clear a starting spot for Jurickson Profar. After cutting payroll by about 33 percent over two years, the Mets may be ready to spend. And they could be interested in some of the players who turned down qualifying offers, because they wouldn’t forfeit their first-round draft pick — the top 10 selections in the opening round are protected, and those clubs would lose their secondround slot. “The fact that we only have to give up a second-round pick may give us a little bit of an edge,” Alderson said. “We’ll see.” He even joked about his newfound financial flexibility. “I was upstairs stacking our money,” he said. “Don’t get excited. They were all fives.”

On the introspective last day of Neptune’s retrograde, consider the many ways in which you are buying into someone else’s idea of how things should be. When you think about everything that influences your decisions, you may wonder whether you made the choices or whether they were made for you by the hive-mind. New awareness will change future decisions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 12). You feel like an everyday person doing everyday things. And yet someone sees you as a saint, someone sees you as a master, and others see you as a superstar. December brings a reckoning you’ve been waiting for. You’ll get a job because of your originality. You’ll be in charge of family functions in the spring. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 23, 7, 19, 48 and 27. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The situation in your relationship gets more intense. How will this problem be solved? The obvious solutions were tried and didn’t work. Don’t

worry. The solution is still easy; it’s just not obvious.

around. There is truly value in this, though few will see it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). It’s not that they are not listening to you. It’s just that the people around you need to hear things several times before the meaning starts to sink in and they know what to do next.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s said that history is the story of the winning person’s side. Seek the alternate history today, because you’ll learn more from the mistakes of the losing side. The first lesson likely has something to do with maintaining a good defense.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Realize that some people have a different relationship with the truth than you do. Some people are married to the truth, and others consider the truth a casual friend. Don’t trust everything you hear today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Some people will try to make you believe you owe them something, when you actually owe them nothing. Your attention is your own to give, and no one automatically earns it just by being obnoxious. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you approach the day with your sense of whimsy in the driver’s seat, you’ll find the most creative ways to loaf

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The opposite of coexistence is co-nonexistence. People who work together will thrive together, while the fighters will perpetuate a cycle of destruction that can only end badly. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll create a timeline for your specific plans. Sometimes you’ll hit goals more quickly, and other times it will take you longer. But without the timeline, the goal wouldn’t be reached at all. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Doing to others as you would like done to you only works well when the “others” have tastes and preferences similar

to yours. That’s why you’ll take the time to find out what someone really wants before you make a move. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you overvalue what you do and contribute, the world will likely step in to knock down the price. If you undervalue your contribution, it’s possible but far less likely that the world will step in to compensate you appropriately. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may find yourself in an artistic conundrum. The people who urge you to “be creative” are being extremely uncreative in their suggestions. That’s because what they really want you to do is “be marketable.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Time and effort are being invested on your behalf, and the more input you give the better. Until they know what you want, they’ll do what they imagine you would want and will probably go far off base. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM

Central Iowa farmer shares his expertise Special to the Daily News

Submitted Photo Iowa farmers will harvest an estimated 415.4 million bushels of soybeans, slightly more than last year, according to the USDA crop production report. The average yield is estimated at 45 bushels per acre, up a half-bushel from last year. “I expected to see an increase in the soybean production forecast,” said ISA President Brian Kemp (pictured), who farms near Sibley.

USDA boosts Iowa soybean output estimate; farmers say technology helped yields Current soybean varieties seemed to handle stress well, says ISA president Special to the Daily News ANKENY — Despite record spring rains that delayed or prevented planting and extremely dry conditions for much of July and August, Iowa Soybean Association members are pleasantly surprised with harvest results. This week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture increased the state’s average yield by 2 bushels per acre and overall production by about 10 million bushels from September estimates. Iowa farmers will harvest an estimated 415.4 million bushels of soybeans, slightly more than last year, according to the USDA crop production report. The average yield is estimated at 45 bushels per acre, up a half-bushel from last year.   “I expected to see an increase in the soybean production forecast,” said ISA President Brian Kemp, who farms

near Sibley. “Yields in my area were a pleasant surprise compared to my pre-harvest expectations. Spotty, lateseason rainfall made a big difference in yields. Current soybean varieties seemed to handle stress well.” Government data show Iowa farmers will harvest more than 9.2 million acres of soybeans. A little more than 100,000 intended soybeans acres weren’t planted, according to the Farm Service Agency. As of Sunday, data indicates only 5 percent of the state’s soybean crop is still standing. After a second challenging growing season, ISA Farm and Food Ambassador Kyle Maas is looking forward to a “normal” year. The Duncombe-area farmer says this year’s harvest shows that Iowa farmers armed with good technology can deliver. “If we can raise 45-bushel soybeans under these challenging growing conditions … I would love to see the yield potential that’s out there,” Maas said. “Seed treatments helped us plant in wet ground and good genetics shined

late.” Nationwide, soybean production is forecast at 3.26 billion bushels, up 3 percent from the previous estimate and up 7 percent from last year and yields are estimated at 43 bushels per acre.  The latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates raised U.S. soybean export estimates. Grant Kimberley, ISA director of market development and a central Iowa farmer, said the USDA has underestimated soybean demand for seven out of the last 10 years. “In this report, the USDA acknowledged the exceptional pace of exports for soybeans and soybean meal. The USDA’s increase in soybean domestic crush and exports demonstrates that demand is very robust

at current prices,” said Kimberley. “Moving forward, I won’t be surprised if demand numbers are raised again in the January reports.” U.S. soybean exports for 2013-2014 were raised 80 million bushels to 1.45 billion bushels reflecting increased supplies and the record pace of sales through late October, according to the WASDE Report. Domestic soybean crush projections were increased 30 million bushels to 1.685 billion mostly due to increased soybean meal exports.  The report projects U.S. season-average soybean price to be $11.15 to $13.15 per bushel, down 35 cents on both ends.

Silver Lining

OGDEN — Driven by the desire to make the best out of every situation, central Iowa farmer Mark Muench used prevented planting acres for a demonstration of strip till and conventional tillage this fall. “I like to make the best out of a bad situation,” he remarked. “These prevented planting acres were a perfect place to demonstrate the strip till set up I use on my farm, showing others how I create an optimum seed bed.” Muench’s personal interest in improving the soil and preventing erosion while still achieving maximum yields led him to research and experiment to find the right tillage tools to do the job. “My goal is to create the best growing environment possible for the plant,” he explained. “The result is improving the soil and preventing erosion while still raising maximum yield.” Knowing soil is his greatest asset, Muench began looking for the best conservation tillage methods and settled on strip till as the best option. “It keeps your soil in your field and you keep your nutrients where they are available to the plant, out of streams, rivers, and eventually, the Gulf of Mexico,” he commented. “With our system, organic matter and health of soil increases which in turn frees up nutrients and the water holding capacity of soil which greatly benefits the growing plant.” Over a period of a few years, Muench tried different tillage equipment and set ups, fertilizer programs, and came to the conclusion the right configuration to achieve his strip till goals was not available. Most of the tillage tools he tried would plug in corn-on-corn residue, rendering them inefficient and ineffective. Additionally, the equipment needed to be heavy, solidly constructed, and customizable.  Muench and his staff began reconfiguring a Iowa-built Salford I-1100 to achieve their tillage goals and were successful. They were able to negotiate heavy residue and create the right environment for the seed. “We use this equipment on our farm. We do the experimenting so others don’t have to,” he stated. “Our focus is farmers who want to improve their practices and make more from their acres. I tell everyone, farm the way you want — don’t let the equipment determine what is possible. Make your equipment do what you want done.” The turnkey system Muench sells through Muench AgriSolutions includes the Salford I-1500, now sold in his strip-till configuration as a standard option, along with a Montag fertilizer cart. Both Salford and Montag build their equipment in Iowa.  Because he’s a farmer first and equipment dealer/strip till advisor second, Muench puts customer needs ahead of any other interests. “I structured the business to be able to help with all the details you need. We have a full-time mechanic on call along with parts and service. We help you get the machines operating on the first day,” he said. “We provide everything needed to keep you moving.” In addition to Muench AgriSolutions, LLC, Muench manages the family farm business as well as a trucking company. He has served on the board of directors of several successful biofuels plants as well as being a principal member of The Biodiesel Group which was established to help biofuels start-up companies. He and his wife, Holly, are parents of three children.
