DALLAS (AP) — A half dozen Irish soldiers toting guns with brilliantly polished bayonets formed a guard of honor outside the U.S. Embassy in Dublin as the U.S. flag was lowered to half-staff in one of several solemn ceremonies planned Friday to mark 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas. More than a dozen retired Irish army officers who, as teenage cadets, had formed an honor guard at Kennedy’s graveside in November 1963, gathered in the front garden of the embassy in the heart of the Irish capital to remember the first Irish American to become leader of the free world. Together with Irish Foreign Minister Eamon Gilmore and embassy staff, they observed a minute’s silence and lay two wreaths from the Irish and American governments in memory of JFK. Similar events were

planned for Boston, Washington, and in Dallas. That city will mark the day with a solemn ceremony in Dealey Plaza, through which the president’s motorcade passed when shots rang out on Nov. 22, 1963. Shortly after sunrise, with the eternal flame flickering in the early morning light, Attorney General Eric Holder paid his respects at Kennedy’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va. In Dublin, an Irish army commander at the embassy drew a sword and held it aloft as a lone trumpeter played “The Last Post,” the traditional British salute to war dead. A bagpiper played laments including “Amazing Grace.” A U.S. Marine raised the flag again as the bugler sounded an upbeat “Reveille.” All the while, busy Dublin traffic continued to pass by outside the iron-fenced

embassy. The day was crisp, windless, with trees full of autumn leaves and a cloudless blue sky, the sun blindingly low on the horizon. The former Irish army cadets invited by Jacqueline Kennedy to serve as the graveside honor guard described the awe — and fear — they experienced as they traveled to the United States 50 years earlier. “We were young guys, all pretty much 18. We had no passports, no visas. None of us had flown before,” said Retired Col Brian O’Reilly, 68. “We were told on the Saturday night we were wanted for the funeral. The next day we were on the plane with our own president (Eamon de Valera) heading for Washington.” Retired Commandant Leo Quinlan said he had felt mixed emotions. JFK See Page 5A

Reverent memorials mark JFK 50th anniversary

Pharmacist Ron Hawk has announced his retirement for the end of the month after serving Hy-Vee for more than 40 years. In 1973, Ron began his career at the Ankeny Drugstore and transferred to Newton in 1974. He was promoted to pharmacy manager in 1979. Ron will retire from the Newton grocery store, where he has been since 2009 as a registered pharmacist. “It has been a great pleasure to have gotten to know Ron. He has been a huge asset in the success of the Newton pharmacy. He will be missed by his customers and pharmacy team,” Newton Hy-Vee Store Director Jason Crocker said. Ron and his wife, Susan, have two children, Ben and Gina. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, reading, traveling, and working on his farm. His retirement plans include enjoying his hobbies and interests, volunteering, and spending more time with his grandchildren. Ron has enjoyed his tenure as a pharmacist for Hy-Vee. He especially has enjoyed working with his interns and youth over the years and watching them grow and mature into caring employees. Cake will be served for his retirement party from 2 to 4 p.m. Monday at Hy-Vee.


“By his heroic initiative and complete disregard for personal safety, [Staff Sgt.] Briles was largely responsible for causing heavy enemy casualties, forcing the surrender of 55 Germans, making possible the salvage of our vehicles, and saving the lives of wounded comrades.” That is the final line in the official Medal of Honor citation for Herschel “Pete” Briles, Colfax’s renowned First Sergeant who served in the 899th Tank Destroyer Battalion in World War II. Pete earned the commendation leading a platoon of tank destroyers outside of Scherpenseel, Germany, on Nov. 20, 1944. One of his armored vehicles was struck by a direct artillery hit, taking the life of one man and wounding two others. Without hesitation,

Pete jumped from the safety of his own destroyer and navigated a field showered in smallarms fire and artillery. He lowered himself into the turret, removing the two wounded comrades before extinguishing the fire. The next morning, Pete observed German infantry approaching his position. The citation reads that he poured down such deadly fire with his machine gun into the enemy ranks, that an entire pocket of 55 Germans surrendered themselves, clearing the way for Ameri-

can reinforcements. On that same day, Pete repeated his previous exploit, leaving protection to give assistance to a destroyer that was struck by a concealed German tank. He evacuated two wounded soldiers with the help of

his comrade, and then returned to the burning vehicle to extinguish the flames. When he returned to Iowa, Pete didn’t talk often about his military exploits. “He was like a lot of the others that way,”

said Robert Briles, Pete’s nephew. “He always said that he didn’t deserve the honor, and that there were others who had done more than he had.” BRILES See Page 5A

JFK death news sent ‘wave of grief’ around world RUNNYMEDE, England (AP) — There is a quiet and somber feel to this small piece of America on an English hillside, near where the Magna Carta was signed eight centuries ago. Only a trickle of visitors come to the John F. Kennedy Memorial, located on about a halfhectare (an acre) of land given to the people of the United States by Queen Elizabeth II in an unprecedented act of British affection for the fallen president. Near the Thames River meadow where the founding charter of civil liberties was signed in 1215, the queen came to dedicate the austere monument to a president killed 1½ years previously. Accompanied by Kennedy’s widow, his two children and two surviving brothers, the queen spoke of “the unprecedented intensity of that wave of grief, mixed with something akin to despair, which swept over our people at the news of President Kennedy’s assassination.” She spoke for the multitudes. Much of the world learned of Kennedy’s death within minutes, and 50 years later it still feels the loss. ___ Across six continents, in sports grounds, statues, scholarships, streets, hospitals, bridges, parks and schools, the name of John F. Kennedy is preserved in perpetuity, nowhere more keenly than in the hearts and minds of the Irish. There he is widely recognized as the nation’s most famous son, whose great-grandfather Patrick emigrated to Boston in 1848 from

a 14-hectare (35-acre) farm near the River Barrow in Dunganstown, County Wexford. That farm in Ireland’s southeast corner has become a focal point for tens of thousands of JFK pilgrims annually since June 1963, when Kennedy visited his ancestral homeland. His four-day tour inspired unparalleled excitement in a then-impoverished land that had never before seen an American president. In the nearby town of New Ross, a bronze podium bearing microphones and the presidential seal marks the riverside spot where Kennedy spoke. A flame taken from his burial plot in Arlington Cemetery burns at the center of a globe-shaped sculpture dedicated to Ireland’s emigrants. Carmel Delaney, a New Ross native, was 11, singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” with a crowd of Catholic schoolgirls when JFK’s helicopter landed. “We wouldn’t have seen a helicopter before. That was something fabulous altogether,” she said. “We knew he was somebody extremely important. We knew he was a god.” The day after Kennedy’s funeral, Ireland observed a national day of mourning. Tens of thousands queued to sign the U.S. Embassy’s condolence book, and businesses closed so employees could attend Masses in JFK’smemory. Jacqueline Kennedy gave the president’s Irish relatives the rosary he had in his jacket when he died. It is on display at the Kennedy Homestead.

At the homestead, JFK’s closest living relative in Ireland, fourth cousin Patrick Grennan, says the family is planning no special occasion for the 50th anniversary. “We Kennedys choose to commemorate life, not death,” Grennan, 38, said while showing a visitor around the homestead. “We celebrate the triumph of his visit to Ireland, his inspirational words. We try not to dwell on the horror of what happened later.” __ “I put on the radio, and just at that moment there was a chilling report informing us that the president had been assassinated in Dallas,” Fidel Castro wrote in a recent newspaper column. The usually voluble former president of Cuba recalled being struck dumb. “For all intents and purposes there was nothing that we could talk about.” In Cuba, Kennedy was reviled for authorizing the Bay of Pigs invasion and perceived as bellicose during the missile crisis that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. “Every Cuban felt like that president was attacking us. You couldn’t have the slightest good will for him,” said Manuel Rodriguez, a 74-year-old former bank employee and militia member who was mobilized during the Bay of Pigs attack and the missile crisis. He remembers that Kennedy’s assassination shocked Cuba and provoked fears that new GRIEF See Page 5A

Katiedid Vs.

I’m not a fan of Daylight Saving Time changes “Is that a new look?” snorted my co-worker last month. “Is what a new look?” I asked. “Is this like wearing your hat askew or your pants too low?” “I have no idea what you’re talking about,” I said. “Your shirt. It’s on backward.” I looked down. By Katiedid The tag was Langrock sticking straight Creators Syndicate up from inside my blouse. A peephole, intended to show a tiny and respectable amount of back skin, was showcasing my cleavage. Totally work-appropriate — if I worked as a stripper. I hate the end of Daylight Saving Time. It’s bad enough that the days grow shorter, but the pitch-dark mornings kill me. Where’s that darn cheerful Jimmy Dean sun mascot man when I need him? Clearly, he must not think those breakfast sausage biscuits are delicious enough to rise an hour early for.

Mornings never have been my friend. And the moon-filled mornings that make up the final month of daylight saving time feel like a cruel joke — one that, as an adult, I feel as if I shouldn’t have to endure. Making these dreaded predawn mornings far worse are those lucky adults, ahem, who manage to successfully skirt them. Ahem! (Insert coughing the word “husband” here.) To avoid waking my husband as he slumbered through the darkened autumn mornings of daylight saving time, I got dressed for work by the light of my camping flashlight. It turned out — based on my backward apparel — triple-A batteries did not produce enough light to get a nonmorning person successfully clothed and out the door. I was getting really tired of the darkness. Tired of stubbing my toes every morning. Tired of tripping over toys I couldn’t see. Tired of the lamps stinging my eyes when I turned them on. Tired of needing three cups of coffee before I could function. And plain old tired. Because tired is what you feel when you have to wake up before the sun does! Why, oh, why do we have to endure

the last few weeks of daylight saving time? Can’t we move the time change up a little bit — back to how it was before 2007? Whom do I talk to about this? Hey, farmers, I’ve been told that blaming you for the biannual time shifts is bogus, but because I have no other group to lament to, hear my plea: I love ya. I really do. You have cows. That’s cool. I dig on some milk. Fruits and vegetables — I eat them. I always vote to support American farms with additional tax breaks. Farmstand Tropicana is my new favorite juice. I took square dancing in elementary school. And I’ve gone to Farm Aid concerts. Sure, I wanted to see Dave Matthews Band and Willie Nelson, but the philanthropic element was totally part of my ticket price justification. So why, dear farmer friends, must you hurt me so? I need my morning cup o’ vitamin D! There aren’t many things in life I need to rely on, but trusting that the sun will be up to greet me when I wake is one of them. You’re giving me trust issues, farmers. Like, therapy-level trust issues.

The First Amendment

Believe me; my alarm clock’s beeping before dawn had me on the brink of a mental breakdown. And simply providing the coffee beans and milk I would bathe in to function did not make us square! I needed standard time. I craved standard time. My sanity was resting on it. And worse, my wardrobe choices were resting on it. Alas, standard time brought no solace. After turning back my clock in early November, I learned something rather distressing: I had grown accustomed to my dreaded dark mornings! Now, rather than my alarm clock waking me before the sunrise, the sunrise wakes me before my alarm clock! I have gone from going mad from darkness to going mad from sleep deprivation. So much so that despite being able to see in my perfectly lit room, I came to work this morning wearing my shirt inside out. Next time my co-worker smugly asks whether I’m sporting a new look — be it backward clothes, inside-out clothes or my bra outside my shirt — I’m just going to say, “Yes.” Clearly disheveled is my new statement piece. It doesn’t even matter if I got dressed in the dark.

Greatest intellectual feat of your lifetime by age 5 By Christine Pauley Reading Specialist A linguist once said that by the time you are 5 years old, you have accomplished the greatest intellectual feat of your entire lifetime. Think about yourself. You learned your native language without already knowing a language of any kind. You constructed a grammar far more complex than any scientific theory, and used it instinctively for the rest of your life. Now that you have accomplished that magnificent feat, you can encourage others. Family, friends, volunteers and the printed word do it so much better than television. Television is also a teaching tool both for good and bad. It permeates your thinking presenting conflicts of: aggression and violence; unhealthy escape from real life; physical sex, excluding the emotional level; heroes who are mostly flamboyant and good looking; instant happiness derived mainly from material success; and instant solutions with little honest effort.  During those first 5 years we instill our values or non-values, our passions, our interests, etc. consciously and unconsciously into our young. All our resources: television, radio, printed materials, schools, churches, etc. are at our disposal to make a positive difference in the lives of the young. We don’t have to do it alone. One valuable way to strengthen literacy is reading aloud regularly which increases reading comprehension,

writing and speaking skills as well as expanding vocabulary. Reading aloud builds relationships providing security and it teaches respect. A child learns to sit quietly and actively listen to someone speaking instead of running around ignoring others. Jim Trelease, author of “The Read-Aloud Handbook,” states, “Few tasks present man with as monumental a challenge and few tasks are as farreaching in their consequences as the challenge of learning to read.” Why read aloud? Some other reasons are to reassure, to entertain, to inform, to explain, to arouse curiosity, to inspire, and most of all to share and enjoy. Other benefits are gaining letter and symbol recognition; absorbing a variety of sentence lengths; developing concepts; enjoying a variety of language patterns that wouldn’t be heard in their everyday world. If children only speak and play with children they are severely limited in growing in literacy. Reading aloud is a form of playing with a child constructively. There is no way I can over emphasize the need to develop children’s attitudes toward reading by modeling adult reading and reading aloud. My parents were not readers, but my grandparents were and often as they read while I played beside them, they would suddenly start reading aloud.  I treasured those times; I don’t know if I understood, but I felt important because they read to me. In fact, I don’t remember if my grandmother’s bedtime stories were even children’s books, but I do know they kept my at-

tention including when she read from the Bible. After my bed time story, I enjoyed that precious time to read a book before I went to sleep. I still read an hour before I turn out the lights. Reading experiences create or strengthen a positive attitude about reading. Attitude is the most important element in the ability to read. Most poor readers have poor attitudes.  Parents and the adults who surround the young child develop the reading attitudes of their children willingly or unwillingly. Literacy is not something we can run from. The English Language is one of the hardest languages to translate material into. One of its words may have fifty or more meanings. Various languages such as those of Native Americans aren’t even yet written down. When I think of that part of my heritage and as Thanksgiving approaches, I think of popcorn which grows on ears. But its kernels are very hard. Each kernel contains a tiny bit of moisture inside.  As it is heated, this water turns into steam. The kernel explodes and creates that distinctive popping sound. Just in this little tidbit you correctly interpret, at least in Iowa. You know popcorn is not sweet corn or feed corn. You know you don’t hold it up to your ear to pop it. You know this kernel is not a Colonel.  You also imagine its taste with or without butter. If you couldn’t read and interpret you couldn’t connect images.

The Native Americans were the first to grow and eat popcorn. They would throw the kernels into a hot fire and wait for the pop. Or they would put the seeds in clay pots filled with hot sand. These Natives did more than eat the corn. They made it into fancy necklaces. When the first pilgrims came, they shared with them this new food.  Today, people eat in excess of 450 million pounds of popcorn each year. Nearly all the world’s popcorn is grown in the United States. Language is essential and I believe that literature is also.  “...the very purpose of literature: to provide meaning in our lives... the purpose of all education,”  Trelease said in “The ReadAloud Handbook.” This statement reinforces my philosophy of literacy. Literacy is not “reading skills” or even “success skills.” Reading is even more essential. It helps us learn about ourselves and others. Richard Peck wrote a poem that strikes me. A few of the lines are: “A story is a doorway That opens on a wider place” “A story is a question You hadn’t thought to ponder” “A story is a window, A story is a key” Doorways, questions, windows, and keys are essential to our everyday life. These elements allow us to do great things. Let us not deny those opportunities to our children or to ourselves. Until next week — Christine

“I was teaching a junior English class and the principal came in my room and whispered it in my year. My initial reaction was I thought how stupid. It made no sense. I had to inform the kids and there was a lot of crying. It just took the air out of them. It was a dreary day, just like today.” — Steve Mullen of Newton

“Beside the grave I could see (Ethiopia Emperor) Haile Selassie, (French President) Charles de Gaulle, King Baudouin (of Belgium), (Britain’s) Prince Philip. So you had all that excitement on the one hand,” said Quinlan, 68. “And then on the other you had the sadness everywhere, people crying in the streets, and in the Washington shop windows they displayed shrines to Kennedy with candles burning. You could never forget any of that.” Gilmore paid tribute to JFK’s legacy and a fiddler, Frankie Gavin, who performed for Kennedy during his visit to the western Irish city of Galway on June 29, 1963, performed a lament and a jig. Gavin was just 6 when his family’s band performed as the Kennedy motorcade passed through Galway. Gavin, who is credited by Guinness as the world’s fastest fiddler, played only one verse of the “Lament for Oliver Goldsmith” because, he said, he could feel himself tearing up. “There’s a sense of his ( JFK’s) presence here today. . The moment was getting to me.”

Robert recalled that the few occasions when Pete would reminisce back to the days of his service, he would sometimes break down into tears as he recalled his fallen comrades and what they had gone through. State Senator Dennis Black, who published a book about Iowan Medal of Honor recipients, echoed that sentiment in an opinion piece he wrote for the Des Moines Register. “Briles downplayed his deeds when he was honored on Aug. 21, 1945, in a ceremony in the East Room of the White House,” Black wrote. “Briles looked directly into the president’s eyes and responded: ‘Mr. President, I am no hero. I only did what I had to do. The real heroes never made it home.” Robert Briles remembers his uncle for far more than his military accomplishments, recounting his days in Iowa upon his return, living the life of a farmer and a community man. He was dedicated to his wife, Wilma, and his three sons, James, Jerry and Randy. He also worked toward the best for the community of Colfax, becoming coowner of the Colfax Livestock Sales Co. to help keep the business afloat while also maintaining an active presence in the local American Legion post, Disabled American Veterans and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The AMVETS Post 50 in Colfax, upon opening in 2001, named their post after the famous soldier. Always, his thoughts remained with the men and women who continued to serve in the armed forces. In an article for the Des Moines Register, as the United States drew closer to the Gulf War, then-76 year old Pete said, “I’m as scared as the guys over there … They’re going to fight. I hope they don’t, but it’s just as sure as anything.”

Grief Continued from Page 3A tensions would roil the island. Once again he was called up for military duty. His view of Kennedy has softened somewhat over the years; today Rodriguez believes the hostile U.S. policy toward Cuba was set by Kennedy’s predecessor, Dwight Eisenhower, and that Kennedy had to “keep up the pace.” In Bogota, Colombia, Maria Cristina Reyes remembers exactly what she was doing when Kennedy was shot. He had touched her life. Reyes was 16 and newly married when JFK pulled up in a black limousine with his wife and Colombia’s president on Dec. 17, 1961. She and her husband were among people building simple one-story red brick houses financed by Kennedy’s “Alliance for Progress” initiative. One of the homes would be the Reyes family’s, in a district which would be named Barrio Kennedy. “We felt great joy to see someone who was not from our country come and give something to people who were really in need,” said Reyes. Neighbor Martha Garay, now 77, remembers Kennedy’s impact: “He was dashing, attractive, impeccable, and so was his wife.”

Mom’s wild lifestyle puts daughter’s well-being at risk DEAR ABBY: My 23-year-old daughter is out of control and has been since she was 16. She has a 2-year-old daughter, but she lives her life on the edge. She spends her days on the Internet meeting strange men and going out with them in private places. On the weekends, she drops her daughter here and takes off. She has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and prostitution, but swears she only drinks alcohol now. I get so worried and upset I find myself yelling at her and trying to prevent her from leaving with these strange men. She thinks I’m trying to control her life when I’m actually trying to save her. What should I do? I’m getting too old to be stressing out about what she’s doing and who she’s with. — STRESSED-OUT IN CALIFORNIA DEAR STRESSED-OUT: You can’t “save” your daughter. Until she realizes she needs help, and is willing to accept it and change her life, she is unreachable. You can, however, talk to an attorney about gaining legal custody of your grandchild. Terrible things can happen to women who do what your daughter is doing. That little girl needs safety, consistency and stability, and it appears you are the only relative she has who is capable of giving it to her. Please don’t wait. DEAR ABBY: I read the obituaries in our local newspaper every day to see if someone I know has died. But when I don’t see any familiar name, I feel let down and disappointed. Is that weird? — STILL ALIVE IN SAN DIEGO DEAR STILL ALIVE: People read the obituary section for various reasons, including the fact that some of the deceased have lived very interesting lives. Some do it hoping they won’t find their own name listed. If they see the name of an acquaintance, they may feel sadness at the loss or sympathy for the family, knowing each death leaves a hole in

someone’s heart. But to feel “let down” seems to me like a lack of empathy, and in my opinion, it IS weird. DEAR ABBY: PLEASE remind your readers that it is the job of retail workers to help customers. We are not “liars” or “stupid” because our store happens to be out of a toy that an angry parent “must” have this holiday season. It is amazing how this year’s hot toy item can turn parents into monsters. I had one parent ask me after finding out that we were out of stock on a certain toy, “What am I supposed to do now?” I suggested looking online, but what I really wanted to say was, “Take your kids to help out at a homeless shelter so they can count their blessings!” — SANTA’S HELPER IN IOWA CITY DEAR SANTA’S HELPER: I’ll remind them, but the parents you describe are under pressure because they don’t want to disappoint their kids. To the panicked parent who asks, “What am I supposed to do now?” you could respond by saying, “Now you go to Plan B.” Then suggest some other toy the child would like — even though it’s not his or her No. 1 choice. While I think the comment you would like to make (but keep suppressing) is an excellent suggestion, it would not be an appropriate one to make in a situation like this.

When several of Williams’ former fifth graders — now North High School students — wrote class essays about his positive influence on them, their teachers nominated Williams for the Excellence in Education Award. Holmes’ nomination came as a result of her willingness to give freely of her time to help her students, former students and

colleagues. “Lois Holmes is an exceptional teacher whom we are very lucky to have at Berg Elementary,” said Jolene Comer, Holmes’ principal. “She is a dedicated, caring teacher who goes above and beyond for her students. She keeps her young learners engaged through motivating, student-focused lessons and strives to meet each student’s needs on a daily basis. She is a highly regarded teacher by Berg students, staff and families.”

Thanksgiving Memories Thanksgiving — a time for friends, football, food and family. It’s that last “F-word” that is going to be absent from my Thanksgiving festivities this year, but to be fair, Thanksgiving has not felt the same to me for By Dustin Turner quite some Daily News time. Sports Writer G r o w ing up, my grandfather Auldus — to a large degree the patriarch of the family — made sure each major holiday was celebrated as a family. At least six of us and usually more would gather at his house and spend the day eating, telling jokes, discussing and more of the time arguing about sports. Thanksgiving was no different. We would pack the house early on in the day. I can still smell the tenderizing aroma of a moist turkey and celery stuffing. Auldus would do most of the cooking, although the older I got, the more I was able and willing to help out. It was a chore. He would rise before five to start on the bird and the stuffing, making sure everything was prepped for a fun day all together. As with most families, we had our traditions. We would play football in the street during halftime of the morning game. As far back as I can remember, it was usually a Cowboys’ game, and they were usually losing pretty badly by that point, which gave us more time to throw the pigskin around. We also had a game we invented called “roof ball” (patent pending). My grandfather had a fairly old house on the top of a hill in La Jolla, CA. The beauty of the house was in the backyard, it was contoured so there were two perpendicular section of room right at the entrance to the backyard. The roof was horrible shingled. All the shingles were sticking out, ill-fitting. It’s not the type of roof you would see in “Better Homes and Gardens”, but it made for the perfect “roof ball” roof. The bounces were unpredictable. Most of the rest of the day was spent on the couches watching the games while occasionally sneaking into the kitchen to steal a preliminary taste of the main event of the day — the meal. Around two or three in the afternoon, we would gather around the table for the event. It was definitely an event. SO. MUCH. FOOD. As I have mentioned before, as a younger man I was fairly girthy around the midsection, and I could pack it away. Evening naps followed the epic meal, and at some point, my mom would scrape my dad and I off the couch so that we could go home and devolve into a food-coma. Every year was essentially the same, with a little wrinkle thrown in here and there. Gotta keep the family life exciting. It may sound boring, but I miss the consistency. When I went away to college in 2008, I had no idea that none of the aforementioned events would ever happen again. I suppose I would have cherished the moments a little more. I would have savored the turkey, sunk in to the conversation and appreciated every second of it. My grandfather passed away in October of 2008. The meaning of the word “family” has diminished to me ever since. It’s sad to say, but he was the great organizer. He stayed in touch with all sorts of family from around the country in a way my father and uncle are incapable of keeping up with. He had a big heart, really the biggest heart I’ve ever seen. He would have and did give me everything I wanted, and while he TURNER See Page 2B

Royals reach a deal with Jason Vargas KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals agreed to a $32 million, four-year contract with left-hander Jason Vargas on Thursday, trying to fill the void in their rotation created by Ervin Santana’s free agency. Vargas was 9-8 with a 4.02 ERA in 24 starts for the Angels last season. He was 6-4 with a 3.65 ERA before going on the disabled list with a blood clot in his arm that required surgery. Kansas City was searching for a veteran to replace Santana, another former Angels pitcher who rediscovered himself in Kansas City. Santana went 9-10 with a 3.24 ERA last season, driving up his price in free agency to the point where the Royals are un-

Tigerhawks on the move again Dustin Turner/Daily News Working out the rust are the winter teams for Colfax-Mingo. The Tigerhawks wrestling along with the boys and girls basketball teams get back to work on the fundamentals of their sports as the regular season fast approaches in the following two weeks. C-M’s girls will kick off the winter sports season with a visit to Gilbert High on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The boys basketball team hosts North Polk, and the wrestling team hosts a triangular with Pleasantville and Woodward-Granger on Dec. 3.

Thursday’s NBA Capsules DENVER (AP) — Nate Robinson and Jordan Hamilton each hit back-to-back 3-pointers to start the fourth quarter, helping the Denver Nuggets pull away for a 97-87 victory against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. Hamilton finished with 17 points to lead the Nuggets, who won their seventh straight against the Bulls at the Pepsi Center. J.J. Hickson had 14 points, Kenneth Faried had 12 points and 11 rebounds, and Randy Foye also scored 12. Derrick Rose had 19 points for the Bulls, who snapped a five-game winning streak. Robinson, Rose who spent last season with the Bulls, started a 12-0 burst when he hit successive 3s opening the final period. Hamilton matched him by making 3s on consecutive possessions and the Nuggets’ lead ballooned to 82-62 with 9:40 left. Thunder 105, Clippers 91 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant had 28 points and eight assists, another Thunder fan hit a half-court heave and Oklahoma City beat Los Angeles. For the second straight game, a

Thunder rooter made a midcourt basket during a second-quarter promotion to win $20,000. High school business teacher Brad Brucker was congratulated by recording artists Beyonce and JayZ, who sat in courtside seats next to Durant’s family. Serge Ibaka scored 17 points and blocked three shots and Russell Westbrook added 12 points for Oklahoma City, which has won its first five home games of the season for the first time since 2004-05 in Seattle. Oklahoma City led all the way, taking a quick 10-point advantage and never leading by less than six after that in the matchup of Western Conference powers. Blake Griffin scored 27 points on 12-for-23 shooting and also had 10 rebounds for the Clippers. Los Angeles guard Chris Paul also extended his NBArecord streak while finishing with 17 points and 12 assists. He has opened the season with Paul 13 straight games of at least 10 points and 10 assists. Magic Johnson held the previous record of 11 to open the 1990-91 season.

Royals: Vargas brings experience to young rotation Continued from Page 1B “What excited me about the team is how I’ve seen the team grow and progress a lot over the last four or five years,” Vargas said. “Their defense is spectacular and I’m just hoping I can be a piece of the puzzle that helps move us forward.” Vargas isn’t the sort of splashy signing that will make Royals fans salivate, but he does solidify the back end of what’s expected to be a young rotation. James Shields returns next season as their clear-cut ace and Jeremy Guthrie provides a dependable No. 2 starter.

from Tommy John surgery this past season, leaving one more spot in the rotation up for grabs among a handful of in-house candidates. Among those who could land the fifth spot are Wade Davis, Luke Hochevar and Will Smith — all former starters who spent time last season in the bullpen — and hard-throwing right-hander Yordano Ventura, who made his big league debut last season and dazzled in three September starts. There’s also a chance that Kyle Zimmer, their former firstround pick, will be ready at some point next season. Zimmer finished last season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Vargas, who missed the 2008

season with a torn labrum in his hip, is 51-58 with a 4.30 ERA in parts of eight seasons spent with the Marlins, Mets, Mariners and Angels. His best season came two years ago, when he went 14-11 with a 3.85 ERA in 33 starts for Seattle. If nothing else, Vargas should be able to eat innings. He was limited to 150 by his surgery last season, but went over 200 innings each of his final two seasons with the Mariners. “You try to get 200 innings out of your starters and Jason has been able to do that,” Moore said. “He’s been one of the more consistent pitchers in all of baseball over the last few years, and we feel like he’s right in the prime of his career.”

Turner: Holidays will never be quite the same Continued from Page 1B would love tough at times, everything he did was out of love. I miss him every day, but especially around this time of year, when I’m away from home and cannot be with my immediate family. To be fair, even if I was home it still would not be the same, but the wound not be quite as gaping. All I ever wanted to do was to make him proud. He pushed me on a daily basis to be the best everything I can be — person, son, friend and worker. I continue to push myself in his memory, hoping that one day I can do for my future family what he did for us. I love you Papa. Happy Thanksgiving.

No. 22 Iowa State routs Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (AP) — Hallie Christofferson scored 25 points as No. 22 Iowa State used a dominant second half to rout Cincinnati 78-42 on Thursday night. Leading 40-32 with 14 minutes remaining, Iowa State (3-0) scored the game’s next 15 points to extend its lead to 55-32. The Cyclones outscored Cincinnati 44-17 in the second half and have now won their first three games by an average of 27 points apiece. Iowa State shot 52 percent from the field and was 12-of-24 on 3-pointers. Cincinnati (1-3) shot only 29.6 percent from the floor and just 4-of-20 from behind the 3-point line. Seanna Johnson added 13 points for the Cyclones and Jadda Bukley had 12. Christofferson, who entered the game as the Big 12 Conference’s leading scorer, also grabbed seven reJohnson bounds. Dayeesha Hollins led Cincinnati with 12 points.

Bishop Heelan, West Lyon, Don Bosco win state championships Three of the six Iowa high school state football championships were decided Thursday at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls. The other three class championship games are Friday. Here is a recap of Thursday’s the title contests. Class 3A Bishop Heelan routs Washington CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Philip Jacobson caught four of Trent Solsma’s six touchdown passes and Sioux City Bishop Heelan overwhelmed Washington 47-14 Thursday night to win the Class 3A state championship. Jacobson also ran for a touchdown and intercepted two passes, part of a record-setting performance that gave the top-ranked Crusaders their fourth state title. Solsma hit on 23 of 30 passes for 453 yards with no interceptions, setting a 3A championship game record for completions and all-class marks for yards and touchdowns. Solsma threw for 301 yards in helping Heelan build a 26-7 halftime lead, forcing No. 6 Washington’s groundoriented offense out of its comfort zone and ending an 11-game winning streak for the Demons (13-1). Solsma compiled his big numbers in basically 2 1/2 quarters. He threw only one pass after Jacobson’s second interception with 3:08 in the third quarter. Jacobson’s four TD catches set a 3A record and tied the all-class mark. He caught scoring passes of 6, 29, 22 and 44 yards and finished with seven receptions for 128 yards. Connor Niles, Heelan’s leading receiver for the season, ran past his defender to haul in an 80-yard pass from Solsma for the Crusaders’ first touchdown. Niles amassed 193 yards on nine catches, setting a 3A record for yardage and tying the mark for receptions. Solsma also threw a 56-yard scoring pass to Brett Buchmann to cap a

21-point spree in the first 7:30 of the second half, making it 47-7 and triggering a continuous clock until Washington’s Daryn Seibelius ran 15 yards for a TD late in the game. It started with Solsma’s 22-yard hookup with Jacobson on a seam route. The kickoff then glanced off a Washington player, Heelan recovered and Solsma hit Jacobson for a 44-yard touchdown on the next snap. Jacobson’s first interception gave Heelan the ball near midfield and two plays later, Solsma found Buchmann behind the defense for his sixth TD pass. Washington led 7-6 after Carl Sivels’ 36-yard touchdown run and Mason Quigley’s extra point kick. But it took Heelan a little more than a minute to regain the lead on Jacobson’s first TD and the rout was on. Class A West Lyon rolls over BGM CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Brandon Snyder scored two touchdowns and passed for another and No. 1 Inwood West Lyon routed No. 2 Brooklyn BGM 49-7 Thursday to win the Class A state championship. West Lyon (14-0) dominated on the ground, outrushing BGM 329-48. Snyder ran for 181 yards on just seven carries and completed 4 of 5 passes for another 110 yards. BGM (13-1), which had been averaging a class-best 53.9 points, was held without an offensive touchdown. The Bears played most of the game without star running back Jack Kline, who came in with 1,811 yards rushing and 49 TDs. After returning an interception 52 yards for the game’s first touchdown, Kline sprained an ankle making a tackle and did not return. With the BGM offense scuffling, West Lyon built a 42-7 halftime lead, setting the continuous clock in motion for the second half and coasting to its fourth state title. Snyder rushed for 172 yards in the first half alone, scoring on op-

tion keepers of 34 and 60 yards and setting up another touchdown with a 69-yard dash to the BGM 3. Bennett Feuchtenberger plowed into the end zone behind that big line on the next play. Snyder also threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Groeneweg, who was left uncovered, and his 49-yard completion to Cody Bauman led to the final touchdown, a 1-yard run by Kaleb Heyer. For good measure, the West Lyon quarterback set a Class A championship game record by kicking seven extra points. Groeneweg finished with two catches for 41 yards and also scored on a 3-yard run. Snyder’s first touchdown tied the score at the 5:48 mark in the first quarter. A minute later, the Wildcats led. With BGM in punt formation, the center snap sailed over punter Tony Viereck’s head and Reagen Meyer outhustled Viereck for the ball in the end zone for a West Lyon touchdown. West Lyon joined Fairbank Wapsie Valley and Emmetsburg as the only schools to win football championships in three different classes. The Wildcats won the Class 2A title in 1998 and 1999 and claimed the 1A championship in 2010. Kline’s pick-six gave him 13 touchdowns on returns this season. He set a national record with nine punt returns for TDs, scored twice on kickoff returns and returned a fumble for a touchdown. 8-Player Don Bosco beats Exira-EHK CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Do-it-all quarterback Jake Hogan scored on a 1-yard run with 1:13 left Thursday to give Gilbertville Don Bosco an 18-14 victory over Exira-EHK and the eight-player state championship. Hogan drove the Dons (14-0) 79 yards in 12 plays for the winning score

after their potent offense had been stymied for much of the game. Then he intercepted a pass with 9 seconds left to preserve the first state football title for a school long known for its wrestling program. Exira-EHK (12-1) took a 14-0 halftime lead on long scoring runs by Trey Sander and Drew Peppers. The Spartans shut down Hogan in the first two quarters while holding the Dons to 80 yards and two first downs. But Hogan got his team rolling in the second half and finished with 111 yards on 32 carries while adding 172 yards on 8 of 21 passing. Don Bosco began its decisive drive after being pinned at its own 1-yard line by Peppers’ punt. Hogan quickly completed two passes to Travis Havel for 38 yards and the Dons did the rest on the ground, with Hogan carrying on nine of the final 10 plays. The Dons needed a break to get their first touchdown. Mitchell Corkery fumbled after catching a pass and the ball rolled 15 yards to the end zone, where Marshall Svoboda recovered for the score. Hogan’s 4-yard run around right end drew the Dons to 14-12, but he overthrew Havel on a 2-point conversion try. The Dons, the state runnersup last year, did not kick a field goal in their first 13 games, so they were going to need a touchdown to win it and Hogan delivered. Both defenses dominated early in a game that matched teams who combined to average 110 points a game and shared the final No. 1 ranking. Exira-EHK had minus 10 yards rushing on its first three possessions before Sander burst up the middle and went 35 yards for a touchdown. Peppers then sprinted 40 yards for a score in the second quarter. Peppers carried 27 times for 100 yards and completed 9 of 23 passes for 106 yards.

Dolphins, when tested in a lab, have been known to choose the “I don’t know” option, proving that they are less stubborn and more aware than people who refuse to stop and ask for directions. This first full day of the Sagittarius sun has a way of opening up our minds to more options. It all starts with those three little words: “I don’t know.”

this social dynamic all about? You’ll investigate tonight.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 22). You’re not sure what to strive for, but things get clear in December. Favored activities in the early part of 2014 include: teaching, speaking and developing a creative, technical or mathematical idea. In January, someone who shares your feelings will make you money. Carefree fun is featured in March and June. Pisces and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 12, 33, 49 and 7.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Do not doubt the impact of your sense of humor. It’s important to the evolution of the planet. If you can make one person laugh uproariously, it is better than having the nodding approval of thousands.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Your friends miss you when you’re not there, and yet they don’t always show their love adequately when you are there. What’s

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Is it wrong to want the reward you can get with the smallest energy expenditure? No. It’s actually smart. Recognizing what’s within your reach and going for the low-hanging fruit is the order of the day.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your reputation may seem to have a life of its own. On the bright side, if people are talking about you, it’s as though you are participating in parties you haven’t even attended. That’s power! ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are versatile. You can be around people you don’t like at all and still find some way

to make it work. You will find a brilliant way this evening, which is a credit to your character.

high praise, and you should not take it lightly. It’s better to absorb the mild, positive and truthful response than to be blinded by glimmering false accolades.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are those who climb mountains and connect with their majesty, feeling gifted by the surrounding nature, winds and peaceful sunshine. Could you be one of those people? You’ll wonder about it and plan for it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Usually, what follows a gradual climb to the top is a long tenure in that lofty location. You’re learning what you need to know to join the upper echelon and stay there.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Act in a particular way over and over, and soon enough it becomes the way you are. If you want to become brave, act bravely again and again. If you want to become glamorous, act that way.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are missing something dramatic, but you’ll get over it. Your choice to refrain from further involvement is a good one. Out of sight, out of mind is the motto that will work well for you now.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The day brings a surge of animal energy, and this is only healthy. After all, your species is scientifically classified as such. An ancient part of your brain will lead the way this evening.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your conscience is clear, but you still may have trouble getting to sleep tonight. The insomnia can be cured by writing in a journal. Empty out the personal baggage that has built up this week.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Honest people will tell you that you’ve done well. This is
