Newton Park Board approves changes to fees and hours By Kate Malott Daily News Staff Writer The Newton Park Board met Wednesday to discuss and approve business on its agenda. The board approved a delay of the opening time of Maytag Pool during the week from noon to 1 p.m. The later start will help the pool staff move back morning pool parties, swim lessons and lap swim time, and the idea for the time change also was supported due to low pool attendance from noon to 1 p.m. Another motion that was proposed and approved by the park board involves fees at Westwood Golf Course. The staff is adding a Young Professional Member Fee to the 2014 year. A new membership fee will be available for individuals age 22 to 35, both solo and couple. The idea for a young professionals membership is to serve a group that is working to become established financially and to attract young golfers who have low memberships numbers. Also approved, a membership drive will take place from Jan. 1 to March 31 and golfers who purchase a membership during this time will receive a 10 percent discount for their early commitment.

Tuesday afternoon, in an interview with the Daily News, State Rep. Dan Kelley of Newton distanced himself from an online Credo Mobilize petition he said was posted in his name. “I agreed to have them put my name on it, but I didn’t know what it said,” he said. “After I saw what the petition said, I asked them to take it down.” The petition, which was still active as of this morning, is one of several on the Credo website, calling on major daily newspapers across the United States to stop publishing letters to the editor from “climate change deniers,” or those who do not sup-

These approvals will be taken to the Newton City Council meeting on Dec. 2 for final approval. Other items discussed at the Newton Park Board meeting: • A potential future Rotary event that could take place next holiday season was discussed. A holiday light show, similar to Jolly Holiday Lights in Des Moines, is in the initial planning stages at this time to take place at Maytag Park. The event will be planned by the Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce and Newton Rotary. • The park board voted and approved to support the formation of a nonprofit for the parks organization. This group would be similar to the Jasper County Conservation Connection in connection with the county parks. “The goal for this group would be to help in additional fundraising for park projects and it gives citizens an opportunity to volunteer in city park projects,” Newton Parks Department Administrative Superintendent Nathan Unsworth said. • Agnes Patterson will be the home to next summer’s Fourth of July fireworks show. The park board would like to add more events in the area that evening prior to the fireworks event.

Rep. Dan Kelley port the notion that humanity is responsible for climate change. The call to action on the petition reads: It is the job of newspapers to inform viewers of factual information, not promote lies about climate change. Implement a formal policy of refusing to publish any letters to the editor or other content

that denies climate change. Credo members were alerted to the petition via email Monday. Like the notices for petitions to other newspapers across the United States, it notes a recent announcement from the Los Angeles Times that it would no longer publish letters that “deny climate change.” The email included several quotations attributed to Kelley. Based on those quotations, it appears the petition was launched by Kelley himself, although he denies drafting the text. “As a state legislator, I’m proud to represent constituents who work at two major manufacturers of wind turbine KELLEY See Page 5A

The state of Iowa has seen its fair share of floods with record depths in 1993, 2008 and 2010. The flood damage that has occurred in recent years has made the community eligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency funds to build a berm to protect against any flooding that could possibly occur in the future. A berm is a level space, shelf or raised barrier separating two areas. It can serve as a border barrier. The berm will be created by dirt and concrete from the Newton Landfill, which will be purchased by the Water Treatment facility for $20,000. The contract for the project has not been signed as of yet, as it’s still in the bidding stage. The amount of dirt will consist of 1,500 full-size dump truck loads. The total cost — L.D. Palmer, Newton of the project WaterWorks manager is estimated at $865,000. FEMA will fund 75 percent of the project, which totals $648,750. Iowa Homeland Security will fund 10 percent of the project, which totals $86,500. The remaining 15 percent will be from the local treatment budget, totaling $129,750. At this point, it has yet to be determined if customers will see an increase in water bills. “It’s one of those big-money projects that will save us money in the long run,” manager of Newton Water Works L.D. Palmer said. The water treatment board is also doing a study on replacing the vertical pumps in the well field, as the wells date back to ’50s and ’60s. The pumps may be replaced by a radial collector well that could pump 2,000 to 3,000 gallons of water a minute. The vertical pumps currently are operational at a rate of 300 to 1,000 gallons per minute. The well replacement project is still in the study stage and is being conducted by Layne, is a global water management, construction and drilling company providing solutions for water, mineral and energy resources.. “The replacement will assure a plentiful water supply to the communities that we serve,” Palmer said.

Kia recalling about 80,000 vans DETROIT (AP) — Kia Motors Corp. is recalling nearly 80,000 minivans in the U.S. because a suspension part can break and cause drivers to lose control of the vehicles. The recall affects Sedona minivans from 2006 through 2012. They were sold or registered in 20 states and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to clear roads in the win-

ter. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the lower control arms near the wheels can rust and break due to salt exposure. Kia dealers will inspect the parts and rustproof or replace them for free starting next month. The recall includes vans in Iowa.

Florida bullying case, charges dropped ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Charges have been dropped against two teenage girls whom a sheriff had accused of bullying a Florida classmate who later committed suicide, the girls’ attorneys said Wednesday. Last month, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced the arrest of a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl as juveniles on stalking charges. He said then that the two were primarily responsible for bullying Rebecca Sedwick, a 12-year-old who jumped to her death at an abandoned concrete plant in September. Attorney Jose Baez held a news conference Wednesday to announce that the charge had been dropped against his 12-year-old client. The attorney for the 14-year-old, Ronald Toward, told The Associated Press in an email Wednesday evening that The State Attorney’s Office in Polk County charge also had dropped the charge against his client. Baez demanded an apology from Judd for arresting the 12-year-old, whom he described as a “troubled young girl” who had been bullied herself. The lawyer said it was “reckless” for Judd to have brought a juvenile count of third-degree felony aggravated stalking against the girl, and to name her and show her mug shot at a news conference last month announcing the arrests. “I found zero evidence having to do with my client that would rise to the level of a criminal act,” Baez told reporters. At a news conference in Winter Haven — just minutes after Baez’s news conference had ended — Judd said he didn’t regret anything he did. He said that he is happy with the outcome and that the girls will receive “the services they need.” “Our goal is that these kids never bully anyone again, never torment anyone again,” Judd said. Baez said his client hasn’t ruled out a lawsuit against the sheriff. At last month’s news conference announcing the arrests, Judd said the bullying began about a year ago after the 14-year-old girl started dating Rebecca’s ex-boyfriend. The older girl threatened to fight Rebecca while they were sixth-graders at a middle school in Lakeland, Fla., and told her “to drink bleach and die,” the sheriff had said. She also persuaded the younger girl to bully Rebecca, even though they had been best friends, the sheriff said.

Protective vests donated to 2 K-9s in Iowa CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) — A Massachusetts group has donated bullet- and stab-protective vests for two law enforcement dogs in eastern Iowa.

Vested Interest in K-9s Inc., a nonprofit organization in East Taunton, Mass., says the vests will help protect the dogs from blunt force trauma and stab wounds. Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reported Vested Interest has donated more than 435 protective vests since August 2009.

The Hometown Kid

Being The Man When I was told recently one of my stories was picked up by Andy Fales at WHO-HD Channel 13 News, I was literally shocked. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the community’s response has been ov e r w h e l m i n g. You’ve made all the late nights and early mornBy Zach Johnson ings worth it. Staff Writer I have to admit I’m starting to truly find a home in my hometown. It has been an amazing week per-

sonally, from getting a chance to chill with the guys playing NBA 2K14 on the big screen at Capitol II Theatre to getting the group back together for bowling. Then, there’s knowing the crew from my high school days will be coming home, and some great business opportunities. It’s been a great work week, too. I got to take part in a photo shoot with my good friend and coworker, Ty Rushing, at Bridal Suite, and I interviewed my first vet for the Called To Serve series. I can say I’ve found the kid who thrived off of coming into his own, starting to climb to the top of world in everything he does. I think back

to that kid who, without a doubt, was once arrogant, cocky, and fearless. Now, I think about that kid growing up to find his arrogance and cockiness turning into true confidence as those around him said, “You say you’re this guy, now show it.” Well, that’s what I have done in many aspects of my life. I was thinking about two guys I idolized when I was younger: Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels of the WWE. They always talked about “being The Man.” It’s something I always strived for, to show I am someone you may count out, but I will steal the show and even when I get to a point where everyone else says, “You’re too old,” I will do whatever it takes to

Newton paying too much for waste, recycling functions

Common Sense

An ‘accident’ not of my making We had to take our son, Jayden, to Iowa City to have some pediatric dentistr y done yesterday. T h e care we got for him there was topn o t c h . By Bob Eschliman Daily News Editor But, the one thing lacking at the College of Denistry at the University of Iowa is decent waiting rooms. We were waiting there for

more than three hours while they worked with Jayden — who, for 5 years old was a brave little soldier all by himself with a bunch of strangers poking and prodding around in his mouth — and the chairs left a lot to be desired. Actually, it left a lot more than anyone would ever desire. I wore khakis and a business-casual shirt for the day. At one point, I got up to stretch out my legs. A short time later, my daughter, Hannah, tugged on my shirt. “Dad, you’ve got something on your pants,” she said. “It’s really bad.”

show I’ve still got it. But through it all, I realized something was missing. I realized in everything that I have tried to teach those around me, I did the one thing I hate. It’s when you look at someone realizing that even though their still the same person that everything you know before that moment is gone and someone new is there. I am still a guy who will be seen as arrogant, cocky, and fearless, but without a doubt I have lived through the challenges set before me. It’s what makes me truly The Hometown Kid who will take on everything for the experience in hopes of making an impact.

I quickly went to the bathroom, where I discovered a brown stain. It wouldn’t have been so bad were it not for where the stain was located. When I returned to the lobby, with my shirt pulled out to cover my backside, the lady who had been sitting next to me smiled politely and said, “That was unfortunate.” Yes, it was quite a fun time. ••• If you’re reading this, thank a teacher. if you’re reading it in English, thank a soldier, sailor, airman or Marine.

To the editor: Do we the home owners of Newton pay too much for our solid waste and recycling? I for one feel we do so I sent an email to the mayor, council members and city administrator requesting that this function be made an enterprise fund so all revenues received for this function would have to be used only for solid waste & recycling. Do you agree we pay too much? Topic: Function 541: Solid waste and recycling As we are going into budget time for 2014/2015 I’m requesting that Function 541 be changed to an enterprise fund. Over the last five fiscal years the home owners of Newton have paid $171,378 more for this service than the expenses incurred by the city. That amounts to an av-

Daily News readers learned of Oswald four years before ’63 To the editor: As it’s now been 50 years since President Kennedy’s assassination, it was with interest that I discovered an item related thereto while reading microfilmed copies of the Daily News at the Newton Public Library recently.

erage of $34,275.60 per year. This money could have been used for spring cleanups two or three times, not just put into the general fund to be used as they wish. When a fee is collected for a specific service, that money should only be used for that service. As you can see that in the past this has not been the case. Making this enterprise fund, all fees collected must be used within that fund. Des Moines home owners pay $11 for a 64-gallon container or $12 for a 96-gallon container, while we pay $11.20 for a 35-gallon container. So if break that down to cost per gallon, Newton pays 82.8 percent more than Des Moines home owners on the 64 gallon container and 151 percent more on the 96 gallon. If we had these size containers at this cost, it would do a lot in helping keep Newton clean and cost the home owner less.

S. embassy in Moscow he had applied for Soviet citizenship.” The photo caption further stated that Oswald had been in Russia as a tourist since Oct. 13. So apparently the name of President Kennedy’s accused assassin was known to your readers four years prior to Nov. 22, 1963. Larry Hurto Newton

Usual Eccentric

Anatomy of a Chicken Nugget If I had to put my money where my mouth is I would have to say the best food of all time is the chicken nugget. If I was stranded on a deserted desert island and I could only bring one thing with me it would be chicken nuggets. This year the ultimate personification of the By Will E Sanders nugget — the Creators Syndicate McNugget — quietly celebrated its 30th anniversary amid little if any fanfare and mass media coverage. Normally this would be a wonderful birthday celebration to behold, but a bunch of pencil neck geeks from the University of Mississippi recently conducted research into the anatomy of the average drive-thru nugget. Normally I would have questions regarding why a nugget autopsy was conducted. Except I can’t wrap my head around why there were questions about a nugget’s anatomy to start with. What were they hoping to discov-

er? It’s a nugget. There is no other part of it. That’s what a nugget is. What more do you need to know? The findings were published in the American Journal of Medicine and mostly consisted of unappetizing propaganda by an anti-nugget majority. The study found fast food chicken nuggets are less than 50 percent chicken. Most nuggets are predominantly made from fat, blood vessels, nerves, skin that lines internal organs, cartilage and pieces of bone (presumably chicken). Obviously it seems like a public relations nightmare. But honestly, is anyone actually surprised? Nuggets are like hot dogs. I don’t know what is actually in a hot dog, and I don’t want to know. I don’t need to know. They taste delicious. That’s all I need to know. Plus, the chicken nugget is like the innocent little brother of the hot dog, if for no other reason than the nugget isn’t shaped like a large phallic symbol. Nuggets come in unassuming, nonthreatening shapes that are not found

anywhere else on the planet. One time I found a nugget that was shaped like Texas. I didn’t know whether to eat it or shove it in a formaldehyde jar. Maybe it’s because I am a spiteful individual, but I want to eat more chicken nuggets now than I ever have before. Boy howdy, I can wolf down some nuggets, let me tell you. I’m like a starved dog around chicken nuggets. I am the kind of guy you need to keep a close eye on if you are eating chicken nuggets around me. Animal activists were pleased with the study’s findings because they live in a world where they actually believe humans will stop eating chickens. How cute, huh? I don’t get why some people care so much about chickens. Chickens have the personality of an artichoke and are as dumb as a box of rocks. In fact, my scientific studies have concluded that most stalks of broccoli exhibit a vastly higher intellect than those bird brains. Chickens aren’t good at anything. The only thing a chicken excels at is being delicious in bite-size nugget form.

Chickens are worthless because nearly every animal on Earth has evaded humans from rounding them up and transmuting them into nugget form. That’s why you have never had a gorilla nugget before. Do you think things like sharks and scorpions would tolerate such nugget buffoonery? Of course not! Other animals have to look at the way we treat and eat chickens as a blessing. As long as we are gleefully consuming chicken — and more specifically, the nuggets they spawn — the less time we spend eating other wildlife. Because in a world with mass produced and easily accessible mystery meat, things like ground hogs, river otters and run-of-the-mill house cats sleep easier at night. So my taste buds will remain indiscriminate toward the contents of the average chicken nugget because I know there are many other fast food mainstays that are much, much worse. If you ask me, someone needs to dissect a chicken strip sometime. It’s hard telling what gross things are in those.

First surviving septuplets 16, enjoy ‘normal’ lives DES MOINES (AP) — The world’s first surviving septuplets have turned 16, and they don’t mind that they’re taking a lower profile these days. The McCaughey siblings, who live in Carlisle in central Iowa, gained international fame for their births in 1997. They were on the cover of national magazines and featured on network television shows. The seven children — Kenny, Kelsey, Natalie, Brandon, Alexis, Nathan and Joel — celebrated

their 16th birthday Tuesday, and the family told The Des Moines Register it’s nice to live a more normal life. “It was kinda cool, but in other ways I never liked it, all these cameras following you around everywhere,” said Nathan McCaughey, one of seven high school sophomores in the family. More important matters in the household — which includes older sister Mikayla, 18 — are driving privileges, track meets and band practice. “It’s quiet in some

ways. The kids are growing up right before your eyes,” said father Kenny McCaughey, who works at a metal coating plant. Budgeting is important in their sevenbedroom house, which was donated along with a huge van. Kenny McCaughey and his wife, Bobbi, are paying for Mikayla’s college education, as well as braces for several teens. They are also monitoring the medical needs of Alexis and Nathan, born with forms of cerebral palsy, though both are doing well.

Club Notes Olive Jane Lamb Chapter of Questers Olive Jane Lamb Chapter of Questers met in the home of Joanne Becker on Nov. 14. Ten members answered role and each told about their latest outings or family events. The minutes and the treasurer’s reports were approved. President Linda Kirchhoff gave an update of the chapters part in the Halloween Night at the Museum. The chapter will decorate the country school at the museum for the Christmas Open House on Dec. 7 and 8. A discussion was held on what community Christmas projects the club wished to support. It was voted to contribute to two local community projects.  The chapter will also do a personal project during the holiday season. Ms. Becker gave an informative program on the history of hankies. She started her collection by going to Goodwill and sales. The purpose of her collection was to make a butterfly handkerchief quilt for her granddaughter. She showed how the hankies were folded and stitched. She displayed her finished quilt so the members could see the wide variety of colors and fabric used. Hankies dated back to the 1600’s and were carried by English Royalty. The upper class carried hankies of silk. White hankies were also used as a sign of surrender.  One of the first uses was for removing make-up.  Hankies can be used for flirting or as a means of adding color to a man’s suit. She concluded her program by reading “Dad’s Red Hanky.” The evening concluded with refreshments served by the hostess.

Wife feels violated after being awakened by husband’s touch DEAR ABBY: I love my husband very much. Until the last few years there have never been any problems in our 20year marriage. I have depression and epilepsy, and I am on five different medications for them. Sometimes when I have come out of a seizure, I have found that my clothes have been removed and my husband is “touching” me. Also, because the medication puts me into a deep sleep at night, I have half-awakened to him having sex with me. I am so groggy I can’t respond. Is this right? I feel like I have been violated, but I haven’t said anything to him. This causes me to cringe most of the time when he touches me now. I’d like to get back to a normal love life, but I can’t get over what he does to me when I’m not fully aware. How do I tell him I know what he has been doing without ruining my marriage? — FEELING VIOLATED IN RIO RANCHO, N.M. DEAR FEELING VIOLATED: You feel violated because what your husband is doing is called spousal rape, and it’s a criminal offense. Having sex with someone who is so doped up she (or he) can’t give consent is a sexual assault. Tell your husband you know what he has been doing, how you feel about it and that you would prefer that the two of you make love while you are wide awake and able to fully enjoy it. This should be discussed with a marriage counselor and, if necessary, the police. DEAR ABBY: I’m a married father of two very young children (2 and 6 months). I have excessive student loan debt that is making my life extremely tough, and between that, day care and my mortgage, I’m on the brink of bankruptcy. My mother is extremely wealthy. She is very involved with my family and we both do things to help each other out. I mow the grass in her large yard every week. She sees me struggling, yet she makes no offer to help financially. I am becoming

resentful about it. If she helped, it would not change her lifestyle at all. My wife’s family is the opposite. Her parents aren’t wealthy, but they have done everything within their power to help their children. I know how I will treat MY kids. Am I wrong to feel resentment because my mother has decided differently? Or should I just “grow up”? — FRUSTRATED IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR FRUSTRATED: If you have discussed with your mother that you are under extreme financial pressure and she has refused to help, then I can see why you might feel some resentment. My question is, HAVE you talked to her about it? That would be the “grown-up” thing to do. The worst she can say is no. If she does, what you will need to do is take a part-time job to help with the bills — even if it means you mow your mother’s lawn less often. DEAR ABBY: Next month will be our 25th anniversary. My wife and I are permanently separated, but will not divorce because she would lose health coverage under my employer’s plan. How do I acknowledge this “landmark” — or should I just ignore it, since it isn’t really a celebratory event? — NOT QUITE AN EX IN THE SOUTH DEAR NOT QUITE AN EX: If you and your wife are on speaking terms, call her and say something nice. Or send her a card. If you’re not on friendly terms, then diplomatically ignore the landmark.

Florke finds coaching niche in volleyball

Iowa State rallies to beat BYU

By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Selfproclaimed gym rat Kim Florke concluded her 15year career as head coach for Newton Senior High School’s volleyball team this fall. But Florke will still be in gymnasiums as a physical education teacher at NHS and providing any help the Cardinal volleyball program needs from her. Florke’s run as Cardinal head coach came to an end on Halloween night in the NHS gym. The Cardinals, who had a school-record breaking season, lost in a regional semifinal match to Adel-DeSoto-Minburn. “The only regret I have is that I wasn’t able to lead a Newton volleyball team to the state tournament. That was always my ultimate goal and the ultimate goals of each team we coached here,” Florke said. “It has been a great time for me as a coach. I’m going to miss the interaction with the players and the coaches the most. I’ve gotten to work with the best kids in school, if you look at them academically and athletically over the years.” Florke finished with a 265-253-22 record at Newton. The 2013 Cardinal team established a new single-season match win record, going 26-13, and finished ranked 12th in Class 4A. They won Newton’s

first-ever Little Hawkeye Conference championship with a win over Pella in the final conference matches of the season. Newton was 6-1 in conference play. Florke came to volleyball late, in a manner of speak. Growing up and going to Colo High School, Florke played basketball and softball. She said they had volleyball her junior and senior years, “but the coach didn’t know a lot about the game.” Going to college, Florke continued to concentrate on basketball and softball, playing both sports at Waldorf

College in Forest City. She transferred to Iowa State, played one fall of softball before a shoulder injury forced her out to quit playing. “Coaching ... I developed that early I think. I was always a gym rat. My parents were custodians so I always had a key to the building,” she said with a smile. “One of my incentives when there was game or event at school was if I helped clean up, I could go and shoot baskets.” As a seventh-grader, she helped the Colo varsity softball coach, keeping statistics and helping him learn the

game of softball, Florke said. “When I got to play varsity, I was a pitcher and I helped the younger kids. That start developed into a career in coaching, eventually,” Florke said. “I’ve always been in the gym and in a school setting, so teaching and coaching were strong pulls toward a profession for me.” Florke did her student teaching and coaching at Ankeny. She was a student coach in basketball under Dick Rasmusson. Florke said one of the coaches on the basketball staff was the head volleyball coach. “They started volleyball that same year at Ankeny and the head coach said he needed coaches, ‘come learn the game,’ and I did,” Florke said. “I knew some of the fundamentals, but not much. I fell in love with volleyball. “What I love about it is that you never know what’s going to happen. I’ve coached basketball, softball and track as well. Softball is very predictable and basketball is somewhat predictable but volleyball, you don’t know which way the ball is going to bounce off a hand or where it’s going to go next.” COACH See Page 2B

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Melvin Ejim and DeAndre Kane each scored 21 points, leading No. 21 Iowa State to a 90-88 come-from-behind win over Brigham Young on Wednesday night. Kane, before being ejected for a flagrant 2 foul with 3:28 remaining, had a team-high 11 rebounds for the Cyclones. Georges Niang added 19 points, eight assists and five rebounds for Iowa State. Iowa State (4-0) took the lead for good with six minutes remaining on a 3-pointer by Matt Thomas. The Cyclones stayed in front with three clutch baskets down the stretch by Niang. The Cougars, who led for more than 26 straight minutes, got 20 points from Tyler Haws and 19 points and seven assists from Matt Carlino. Freshman Eric Mika scored 17 points and pulled down nine boards. The Cougars (4-1) had a chance to take the lead in the final seconds but Daniel Edozie blocked a foul-line jumper by Haws with 4 seconds remaining and then hit 1 of 2 free throws on the other end. An off-balance jumper by BYU’s Kyle Collinsworth that would have tied the game at the buzzer bounced long off the rim. After fighting back from a 12-point first-half deficit to take a five-point lead, the Cyclones let BYU back in the game when Kane, with 3:28 remaining, jammed his fingers into Mika’s face before the freshman center could go up for a shot in the paint. The officials assessed a flagrant foul that resulted in Kane’s ejection. With Mika out Haws hit two free throws, and then made two more free throws after being fouled on the ensuing inbounds play to cut the lead to 82-81. But back-to-back jumpers by Niang pushed Iowa State back in front by five. Niang hit another baseline jumper with 1:23 remaining after Haws had made two more free throws.

Central’s Samson named league football defensive MVP Special to the Daily News PELLA — Central College defensive lineman Danny Samson, senior from Baxter, was named Iowa Conference football defensive MVP and was joined by five teammates as first-team al l-conf erence, with three others earning secondteam honors and two more honorable mention. Samson Samson, a former standout for Collins-Maxwell/Baxter, is the 15th Dutch football player in school history to earn league MVP honors, dat-

ing back to Vern Den Herder in 1970. The MVP was a single award from 1968-2009, before being separated into offensive and defensive awards beginning in 2010. Samson is Central’s second defensive MVP (Shane Wong, 2010) since the additional designation “Danny had an exceptional year,” coach Jeff McMartin said. “Every year he’s been here he’s gotten better and the pinnacle was this season. I am very happy for his success and Danny would be the first to credit his teammates and the entire defense. You have to play well as a team and as a unit to have individual success and our defense played very well.” Samson, who is 5-11 and 255 pounds, led the conference with 11.5 sacks over 10 games (1.15 per game),

four more than the next closest competitor, for a total of 73 yards lost. He led the league in tackles for loss with 21.5 for 96 yards, 3.5 more than the runner-up. Samson was also tied for second in fumbles recovered with two. Additionally, he recorded three of Central’s 11 blocked kicks—the second most blocks by an NCAA team. Samson was twice named to the team of the week (Oct. 2, Oct. 23) and conference defensive player of the week (Sept. 29, Oct. 20). He was a 2012 first-team selection, as well. Joining Samson on the first team was running back Josh Osborn (junior, Burlington)—the only Dutch player on the offensive team—defensive back Eric Larson (junior, Waverly, Waverly-Shell Rock HS), linebacker

Mike Young (senior, Country Club Hills, Ill., Hillcrest HS), fellow defensive lineman Jack Shipley (senior, Tipton) and kicker Kevin Sheldon (junior, West Des Moines, Valley HS). Second-team honorees include offensive lineman Travis Hook (senior, Grundy Center), defensive back Jake Edleman (senior, Mechanicsville, North Cedar HS) and linebacker Keith Rush (senior, Griswold). Honorable mention distinction went to defensive lineman Spencer Matlock (senior, Naperville, Ill., Waubonsie Valley HS) and defensive back Jason Breon (senior, Anamosa). The Dutch finished the season with a 6-4 overall mark, the school’s 50th winning season since 1961. Central was 4-3 in league play, part of a four-way tie in third place.

Coach: Florke to miss working with athletes, coaches Continued from Page 7A Florke spent five years working at Ankeny as a study hall monitor, athletic department secretary as she worked on her masters degree in sport administration. She said she was also a CIML commissioner for three years while at Ankeny. “A sport administration position came open at Ankeny and I didn’t get it. But through my work with the CIML, I knew the Newton administrators. There was a physical education teaching position opening and an assistant basketball coaching spot. Actually I coached four sports that first year, and the second year I got the head volleyball coaching position,” Florke said. Looking back at the start of her guidance of the Newton volleyball program, Florke said she was proud of strong foundation the coaching staff and the teams have established. She said one of the first things she realized was the summer open gym program was important. Florke pointed to state allowing unlimited work with student-athletes over the summer, instead of a 10-day contact rule, as a starting point. She said the open gym summer program allowed the coaches to teach fundamentals and give players individual help on areas, plus Florke and her staff did ACL strength training to help prevent knee injuries. “I realized to compete at the level we needed to in the CIML at the time, we needed the open gym. The kids needed to commit to it and they did. Over the years, our kids have realized their level of commitment during the off-season as well as during the season determined how their season went.” Florke said. The tradition of coming in during the summer and working is an important for Florke’s teams. She said they’ve seen so many players improve their game from one year to another because of the summer work. “Using a recent player — Jen Ventling is a great example. She came in and worked and worked then boom the light went on. She developed into a high quality

player for us. I’m proud we set high expectations for these kids and never lowered them. That’s how I am with my teaching, my family and every place in my life. Some of the kids got there and some didn’t,” Florke said. There are a lot of memories from the past 15 seasons for Florke. She said there were good teams early in her run at Newton. She pointed out three strong memories. “We had gone to Ankeny and won there to open the regional tournament then beat Urbandale here at home.

million, nine-year contract with the Tigers before the 2012 season that includes a limited no-trade provision. Kinsler just finished the first season of a $75 million, five-year contract. It’s the first headline-grabbing move of baseball’s offseason, and it involves two of the American League’s top teams. Detroit has won three consecutive AL Central titles and reached the World Series in 2012, while Texas won the AL pennant in 2010 and 2011. But neither team was about to stand pat. With stars like Fielder, Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera and Anibal Sanchez in the fold, Detroit ’s payroll had become one of the game’s biggest. And although Fielder hit 55 home runs

over the last two years for the Tigers, his numbers dipped this season and he struggled in the playoffs when Detroit lost to Boston in the AL championship series. Fielder hit .279 with 25 homers this year, his lowest home run total over a full season. He did not have a single RBI in the 2013 postseason and hit .182 in the ALCS. Kinsler batted .277 with 13 homers this year. He was limited to 136 games because of injuries to his ribs and right side. The trade could give Detroit more financial flexibility, with Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer a year from free agency. Kinsler fills a need at second base for Detroit after Omar Infante became a free agent.

Vonn partially tears repaired right knee DENVER (AP) — Lindsey Vonn partially tore one of the reconstructed ligaments in her surgically repaired right knee in a training crash that at the very least puts her preparation for the Sochi Olympics on hold. What is less clear at the moment: When the four-time overall World Cup champion and 2010 Vancouver downhill gold medalist will be able to compete again and how her injuries might affect her Olympic hopes. Vonn has not competed since needing surgery to fix her ACL and MCL after the crash in Austria nine months ago.

The sun stretches his rays into Sagittarius, the realm of abundance, expansion and good fortune. The world will seem like a bigger place during this transit, and yet it will also seem more accessible to the brave souls who dare to adventure on. Cast a wide net for inspiration for what to do next. This transit blows out the limits.

you from the wide array of possibilities that comes with an open mind.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 21). Pleasing circumstances around your family, friends and love life send you into the new year with a smile. But don’t get too comfortable. A personal goal will require you to push yourself and make choices that are not always popular with your crew. February brings financial success that you can reinvest in your idea. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 33, 24, 39 and 50.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Be orderly. This probably means you’ll have to cut something out. You may have to cut out 80 percent of it. The remaining 20 percent should be much easier to organize.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). With buying comes risk, especially when you’re buying into a belief. Believing can provide comfort in the moment, and yet it can also block

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Many people are more concerned with living well than with living nobly. But you cannot feel satisfied with the trappings unless you know you’ve come by them through noble means.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a lot of fantasy going on in your personal life. You’re imagining, the other person is imagining... Those fantasies will connect at some points and be completely different at others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are usually so generous in your approach to groups, but what you are dealing with today is not a group effort.

You’re in charge, and the success or failure of this project has everything to do with your choices. ARIES (March 21-April 19). A gleaming prize gets you interested in learning, but once you’re in the process of education, you’ll realize that the end result isn’t even the best part. The gold is in the small steps that grow your skills and mind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). These gifts you were given are meant to be shared, not hoarded. It’s time to use your talent. Give it away, sell it, publicize it, adapt it, and use it again in different ways. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Powerful people can do more good in the world than people without power. The trouble is that most people don’t recognize just how powerful they really are. Do the good you can do, and you’ll start to see it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s not fun to go without when those around you have

plenty. And yet, you’re better for having done this in your lifetime. You trust your instincts, and your character is strong. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Changing one’s mind doesn’t automatically make a person a flip-flopper. It may instead be a sign of growth and intelligence. However, if the change was made to please another person, that’s not a good sign. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are not afraid to make an unusual choice. That’s because you accept yourself, and that’s more important to you than knowing that other people accept you. They come and go. You’re with yourself all of the time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t like to be flattered with words that are obviously not specific to you. But today someone will notice what you value and give you props for your choices, and that will feel terrific.

Pomegranate: seasonal jewel of the produce department By Jenny Thompson As the busyness of the holiday season kicks into high gear, it’s also the peak of the season for pomegranates from California. Pomegranates are the latest in-season jewels of the produce department — the perfect way to dress up any dish for the holiday season. This big, red fruit is full of crunchy juicy-filled seeds, called arils, which make any dish special with their jewellike appearance. The juicy, sweet cranberry-like juice with a crunchy seed is a treat, as long as you have a few tips in how to access the seeds in this large fruit. Start by cutting off the top, about a half-inch below the crown. Then score the fruit with a sharp knife. Open the fruit under a bowl of water, allowing the loose arils to sink to the bottom of the bowl. The underwater method prevents the bright red juice from getting on your clothes as you open the fruit. Discard the bitter, white membrane and strain away the water so you are left with a bowl full of ruby-red arils. Now you can enjoy these

beautiful seeds that contribute potassium, vitamin C and fiber simply on their own by the spoonful, as a garnish for any salad, or mixed into yogurt or your breakfast cereal. Pomegranate arils also add a festive appearance to any bubbly holiday beverage or sprinkled on top of any holiday candy or chocolate-covered pretzel treats you may be making this season. Arils will keep in the refrigerator for approximately five days or frozen for longer storage. With a NuValtm score of 91, pomegranates are a smart seasonal item to add to your shopping cart — and a great stuffer for any stocking — this holiday season. Chicken Pomegranate Salad This make-ahead salad is a great way to care for yourself during this busy holiday season. Pack a lunch while shopping or running errands and enjoy the pleasant crunch and sweet/tart flavor pomegranate adds to the salad. 1 cup canned pineapple tidbits, drained, reserving juice 3 cups diced cooked chicken 1 cup diced celery 1 cup diced red apple 1 cup diced red grapes

½ cup pomegranate arils 1 cup chopped walnuts ½ cup Hy-Vee light mayonnaise ½ cup light Hy-Vee yogurt, fruit flavor of your choice ¼ cup pineapple juice 1. Toss the pineapple in a large bowl with the chicken, celery, apple, grapes, pomegranate seeds and walnuts. 2. In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise, yogurt and reserved pineapple juice. 3. Toss dressing with chicken mixture in larger bowl. 4. Serve. Refrigerate unused portion promptly. Source: Pomegranate Spritzer Add jewel-like pomegranate arils to this drink for a unique presentation. 5 ounces sparkling wine or sparkling cider, chilled 3 ounces pomegranate juice, chilled 3 fresh pomegranate seeds Pour sparkling wine or cider slowly into a festive 8-ounce champagne flute. Slowly fill glass almost to the brim with pomegranate juice. Drop in pomegranate seeds and serve. For more recipes, go to www.

Boys more likely to be born early WASHINGTON (AP) — Boys are slightly more likely to be born premature than girls, and they tend to fare worse, too, says a new report on the health of the world’s newborns. “This is a double whammy for boys,” said Dr. Joy Lawn of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. “It’s a pattern that happens all over the world.” The gender difference isn’t large: About 55 percent of preterm births in 2010 were male, the report found. Nor is it clear exactly why it happens. The finding comes from a series of international studies being published Friday that examine newborn health and prematurity. About

15 million babies worldwide are born too soon, most of them in Africa and parts of Asia where survival is difficult for fragile newborns. Globally, about 1 million babies die as a direct result of preterm birth and another million die of conditions for which prematurity is an added risk, the researchers calculated. Moreover, the risk of impairment in middleincome countries is double that of wealthy countries like the U.S. Middle-income countries are missing out on a lesson the U.S. learned the hard way several decades ago, that giving these tiny babies too much oxygen can trigger a potentially blinding condition called retinopathy of prematurity.
