During Tuesday’s meeting of the Jasper County Board of Supervisors, Jasper County Community Services Director/Central Point Coordinator Jody Eaton will present her office’s annual report and one of the biggest topics, without a doubt, will be regionalization. On June 25, Jasper County signed a 28E Agreement to join Central Iowa Community Services Region. CICSR is a mental health service region that also includes Boone, Franklin, Hamilton, Hardin, Madison, Marshall, Story and Warren counties. Regions were created to meet state mandates that

NEVADA — Gov. Terry Branstad said the Environmental Protection Agency has “embarked in a war on corn” with its proposal of lowering the current Renewable Fuel Standard at an event on Friday at the Lincolnway Energy plant in Nevada. The message of “Don’t Mess with the RFS” was made loud and clear Friday by citizens and politicians from all over Iowa at the rally, which was put together by the state and the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association. In addition to Branstad, Sen. Chuck Grassley, Rep. Steve King, Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture and Land Stewardship Bill Northey, and several prominent members of the alternative fuel community spoke at the event.

“I know how important this is to not only all of you, but to the entire economy of our state,” Branstad told the fired up crowd of farmers, investors and concerned citizens. “The ethanol facilities in Iowa are significant as are the biodiesel facilities.” Iowa is the nation’s leader in renewable fuels. There are 42 ethanol plants, 12 biodiesel plants — including REG in Newton — and 185 E85 fuel stations. In addition, Iowa leads the nation in soybean and corn production, both of which are key components to producing renewable fuels. “We produce more ethanol than we consume in gasoline in this state,” Branstad told the crowd, which responded with raucous applause. “This is one of the reasons we have a strong economy in Iowa, much stronger than the rest of the county. You may have heard the unemployment numbers and it shot to 4.6 percent in Iowa.

counties must be in an operational region by the start of the 2014 fiscal year. This law was created to ensure that all Iowans have adequate mental health services and coverage. In addition, Eaton will give reports on each of the local mental health service providers Jasper County utilizes.  During the 2013 fiscal year, Eaton’s office aided 485 citizens and its expenditures totaled $937,417.65 County Engineer Russ Stutt will present a report to the board, but not for his duties within the Secondary Roads Department.  Stutt also serves as the Jasper County Weed Commissioner.

Tonight, the Newton Community School District Board of Education will conduct its second meeting of the month, which focuses on education. A discussion item on the agenda that is sure to garner a lot of attention, is the SINA plan for Berg Elementary School.   SINA stands for School In Need of Assistance. A SINA is a school that hasn’t met the trajectory for two consecutive years, and there are different levels of SINA. (For example, a SINA-1 school hasn’t met the trajectory in three years). As of the 2012-13 Adequate Yearly Progress reports, Berg is SINA-1 in reading and MET in math. Elementary Education Services Director Jim Gilbert and Berg Principal Jolene Comer have stressed the imComer portance of reading and improving the reading scores in past interviews. “In the area of reading, we are just starting that now,” Gilbert said in August interview. “It’s a brand new initiative, we’ve redefined our literacy blocks, we’ve studied the best practices associated with structures around reading and writing and we’ve adopted brand new materials.” The new initiative he referred to was the “Reading Wonder” program, which is tailored to teach students in a way that adheres to the Iowa Common Core Standards. “Our first goal will be to increase student achievement in reading,” Comer said also in August. “We are implementing a new program this year called ‘Reading Wonders.’ It takes a literacy (based) approach, but it is more rigorous and more challenging than anything we’ve ever done before. So it is really raising the expectations for students, and it will help them to reach those higher levels of expectations.” In other business: • Basics & Beyond Alternative School Principal Laura Selover will present the board with a report on her building. • There will be a discussion on building interventions. • Superintendent Bob Callaghan will talk about possible considerations for early-retirement and present the board with the certified seniority report. The report lists staff, by department, in descending order of tenure within the district. Staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@newtondailynews.com.

Looking Back in Newton’s History From the files of the Daily News Compiled by the Newton Historic Preservation Commission 100 Years Ago This Week Nov. 24-30, 1913 Eli Woody has sold his restaurant on the east side of the square to Jacob Rivers, a Grinnell man. Mr. Rivers is a man of considerable business experience, having been engaged in a mercantile business. He expects to serve Thanksgiving dinner as a way of getting acquainted with the people of Newton. Thanksgiving was announced to be a quiet holiday in Newton this year.  All of the factories in the city will be closed for the day without exception, the banks will not open, and the stores only in the morning. For the first time in several years no football game was scheduled. Only the movie theaters will be open for business. The question of establishing a county hospital will be put before the people at the Nov. 3, 1914 general election. A petition was presented some time ago but not enough signatures were secured to place the measure on the ballot. The present petition has 316 signers, 116 of them from Newton and 200 living outside of Newton.

Nov. 23, 2013, at her home in Park Centre. Funeral services are pending at the Wallace Family Funeral Home in Newton.

Video of the incident shows the woman, Marie Franks, cursing at jail staff and swinging her arms apparently to keep jail staff away. She was shocked four times in eight minutes during the Oct. 7 incident. Franks suffers from bipolar disorder but she was off her medication while in jail for repeatedly calling 911 but refusing to talk to dispatchers. Muscatine County Attorney Alan Ostergren said jail officials determined Franks needed to change clothing be-

cause she might have been wearing something she could have used to hurt herself or others. Authorities charged Franks with assaulting an officer three days earlier on Oct. 4. “It’s unfortunate she was tased, but it would also have been unfortunate if she had killed herself with something she had in her possession,” Ostergren said. “We’re not in the business of applying pain to people just to do it. We’re in the business of trying to safeguard the inmates from themselves.”

Nov. 22, 2013 Martha A. VerSteeg of Newton died Friday evening, Nov. 22, 2013, at her home in Newton under the care of Skiff Hospice.

Group criticizes repeat use of stun gun in jail MUSCATINE (AP) — Experts disagree about whether a Muscatine County jail inmate with a mental illness should have been shocked with a stun gun four times as officers tried to get her to change clothing. Muscatine County officials concluded that no laws were broken and jail policies were followed in the incident last month. But the Des Moines Register reported the mental health advocacy group Disability Rights Iowa is investigating.

Cover Crops Have you noticed a that few fields of corn and soybean stubble are turning green, like in the spring?  Have you also seen crop-dusting airplanes busy working like bees on non-harvested fields around the first of September?  What the heck is going on? While buying squirrel corn from my farmer friend, Roger Harrington, of Ollie, Iowa, I noticed these large, dark, plastic containers stacked neatly beside his driveway.  When I asked Roger what they were, he gave me a quizziBy Curt Swarm cal look.  “Cover Guest Columnist crop seed,” he said, like I should know. When I asked him what a cover crop was, he sighed, pushed his cap back on his forehead, leaned back against a stack of the containers, and proceeded to educate this one-timefarm-boy-turned-city-slicker about cover crops.  Roger farms about 1,200 acres of corn, soybeans, and alfalfa on the rolling farm ground of Keokuk County.  He has a degree in agronomy and ag ed from Iowa State University, taught Voc Ag for a couple of years, and is one of the most progressive farmers I know.  For example, he has been practicing no-till farming since the 1980s—that means no plowing, no disking, and no ripping.  In addition to crop farming, he is also a dealer in wild-bird seed, corn and soybean seed, and now, cover-crop seed.  On his home place is a beautiful pond full of ducks and geese.  The pond has an island where geese nest.  A herd of white goats dot the landscape, and beef cattle graze nearby. If there’s one thing Roger despises, it’s soil erosion.  A second thing is fertilizer runoff.  For the last five years, Roger has been aerial sowing covercrop seed onto standing corn and soybean fields.  He uses rye grass, cereal rye, crimson clover, Austrian winter peas, hairy vetch, sunn hemp, tillage radishes, turnip, and rape seed— sometimes by themselves, sometimes in mixtures (cocktails).  Roger often acts as a consultant or adviser to farmers interested in cover crops.  About 10 percent of farmers are now using cover crops, and interest is growing. After sowing, the cover crop begins to grow almost immediately, and continues to grow while the corn or soybeans are harvested, and on through the winter and spring.  The cover crop can actually be used for grazing.  Most importantly, what the cover crop is doing is preventing soil erosion through the cold, windy, winter months, and rainy spring weather.  Secondly, it is establishing a root base into what would otherwise be dead soil.  This root base helps break up hard-packed soil, reestablishes a culture where earthworms and other  organisms thrive, and provides decomposing matter that will feed the upcoming crop of corn or soybeans.  Thirdly, the cover crop is scavenging unused nutrients in the soil that might otherwise runoff into the groundwater.  Crops of corn or soybeans are much better prepared to survive a drought if a cover crop is used.  Also, and this is a big plus, less fertilizer is required in the spring. Some of the cover-crop plants are legumes, which fix nitrogen into the soil, therefore requiring less purchased nitrogen for fertilizer.  Also, some cover-crop plants have allelopathic qualities that inhibit germination and growth of weed seeds.  Cost? Aerial application runs about $13 an acre, and cover-crop seed about $18 an acre.  Compared to the cost of tilling, cover-crop technology is less expensive.  Throw in the benefits to the environment, and it’s a win-win situation — for the farmer and the future. As Roger points out, “Sometimes, it’s just about doing the right thing.” ••• Have a good story?  Call or text Curt Swarm in Mt.

When I was in grade school, I was to write a story about the moon, so I wrote about an imaginary trip to the moon.

Here’s (not) looking at you, kid Bad news. After all the effort you have put into becoming the perfect “low- profile” employee, who nobody knows or notices, it turns out the people you see getting ahead are the ones you see. Period. It’s true. While hiding behind a copy By Bob Goldman of The Wall Creators Syndicate Street Journal, I came across a Sue Shellenbarger article titled, “Is the Boss Looking at You? You’d Better Hope So.” According to the “Work & Family” columnist, “If the boss looks at you longer than at your co-workers, it may be a sign that your star is rising.” Citing scientific studies from Image and Vision Computing and the Journal of Nonverbal Behavior, Shellenbarger reports, “High-status people receive more visual attention from their conversation partners,” but “people who are seen lacking in influence, get less eye contact from influential participants in meetings.” This is not a pretty picture. While the important people are busy drinking deeply from each other’s eyes, unimportant drones like thee and I are left to stare at

the donut box. This is an advantage when it comes to nailing the last custard-filled crueler, but less of one when it comes to nailing a big fat promotion, or the raise that accompanies it. If you feel you are being underscrutinized, it may be time to stop gazing at your navel and start staring at the alpha males and females in your line of sight. The best venue for a stare fest is a meeting. Even if you do not have the floor, there is nothing to stop you from walking up to Mr. and Ms. Big, affixing your nose to their noses, and staring up a storm. Your superiors will think either you are an especially powerful human being, trying to hypnotize them or have gone completely coocoo. Regardless of what they think, you will get noticed. Once you do establish eye contact, don’t make the mistake of holding that laser gaze too long. Consultant Ben Decker says, “Holding eye contact for more than 10 seconds can seem aggressive, empty or unauthentic.” It can also seem pretty creepy, but that could work to your advantage if in your company, creepy people always rise to the top. Researchers also found that “high-status women use even more eye contact than men to establish their dominance during meetings,” if you think staring down your col-

leagues is a strategy more suitable to a macho movie star in a high-stakes showdown. Shellenbarger is really into this eyeball business, because eyeballing was also the subject of a second column, “Just Look Me in the Eye Already.” In this piece, she states that the average adult in the average conversation makes eye contact between 30 and 60 percent of the time they are speaking. The rest of the time, they are looking at their cellphones, their shoes or simply staring off into space. According to Quantified Impressions, a communication analytics company, people should be making eye contact 60 to 70 percent of the time “to create a sense of emotional connection.” Of course, if an emotional connection to your co-workers and your managers is the last thing in the world you want, continue to operate under the radar. You may not be able to see anyone when crouched under your desk, but nobody can see you either. On the other hand, if your goal is to attract attention, you certainly don’t have to become a more fascinating person. Coming to work wearing a big, red clown nose will certainly make you the apple of your manager’s eye. You’ll be a creepy, rotten apple, of course, but that’s a role you play so very well.

Protest Continued from Page 1A “We can’t let the EPA send it in the wrong direction,” he continued. “This industry provides good paying and vital jobs right here in communities all across the state. It supports our communities and our rural way of life and it provides American made renewable fuel and other byproducts.” Branstad gestured toward the evergrowing pile of dried distillers grain behind him to showcase one of the many byproducts from renewable fuels. “Why are we here today? We are here to stand up and stand strong for Iowa’s renewable fuel industry and the jobs that it has created in this state and the communities and the families that rely on it,” Branstad said. “The White House and the EPA, through recent administrations, through either party, have always supported renewable fuels and the RFS from the beginning and they need to get back on board and work with us,” he continued. Branstad said he personally called EPA Director Gina McCarthy, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and the White House once he heard the rumors of the RFS proposal. He also mentioned he and Reynolds spoke with McCarthy this summer at the Iowa State Fair about the RFS and she gave no indication of making drastic changes. “She gave us every indication that the EPA would continue to support a robust RFS,” Branstad said. “Despite these conversations and the warnings we gave, they still went ahead and proposed a bad rule. Unbelievably, the EPA has embarked in war on corn. A war on corn from our own EPA, it makes no sense.” Northey, who is a farmer in addition to his state duties, talked about how these regulations would hamper an industry which is continually expanding annually. “A lot of folks that help make the renewable fuels industry are in this room,” he said. “There’s a lot of folks that have made a lot jobs across this state and across this country and have made cheaper renewable fuels. Cheaper than gasoline out there and there are consumers that have benefited from all that you have done and we have a lot at stake and you know that. “One of my jobs is to remind us all of how far we have come,” Northey continued. “There are folks in this room who were a part of things back when we used to have to explain what ‘ethanol’ was, what ‘gasohol’ even was, and even what ‘biodiesel’ was ... never  imagining we would get to the place where we are talking about 10 percent of the gasoline supply in this country. “Huge amounts of imports that don’t have to happen because of the things that you all are doing and the things you’re doing to make this happen,” Northey said. “All that’s at stake. We are talking in excess of a billion, maybe 1.7 billion gallons of biodiesel. These are numbers that were inconceivable a decade ago.” REG Vice President of Sales & Marketing Gary Haer spoke about his personal experience in seeing biodiesel grow in the last 20 years, his shock at the EPA proposal and how this would slow down his industry’s growth. Haer said the state’s 12 biodiesel plants provide more than 5,000 jobs and the biodiesel industry nation-wide supports more than 62,000 jobs.  He also said he never dreamed REG would have eight

plants capable of producing a capacity of 250,000 million gallons annually and that the industry would be capable of producing at a rate of 2 billion gallons annually. “This is certainly a terrific story and we are still a very young industry with lots of growth potential and we are ready to grown” Haer said. “But this is not just terrific story about job creation, economics and a terrific story about those of us who work in the industry. It’s about increased energy security, increased food security increased environmental security for all Americans.” “With that being the case, why, why would the Environmental Protection Agency, of all the government agencies, do a 180-degree turn on this environmental progress, innovation and job creation?” he asked. “We simply cannot let this proposal stand. It would take our industry backward and not forward.” According to REG’s website, it employs 21 employees at the Newton plant. Reynolds speech focused on the economic impact the proposal would have on Iowa and the nation.  She said the ethanol industry currently supports more than 383,000 jobs nationwide and more than 62,000 biodiesel jobs. “That means that over 445,000 Americans depend on these good paying and essential jobs to support their families,” Reynolds said. “This one proposed rule, by the EPA, would directly jeopardize 37,400 ethanol jobs and 7,500 biodiesel jobs. Nearly 45,000 families could face financial hardship and stress based on this one proposal.” In an interview after the rally, Reynolds re-emphasized how much this would impact Iowa. “Forty-five thousand jobs, I mean that’s nationally. But 95 percent of the ethanol is produced here, so that’s the bulk of the jobs, right here in Iowa,” she said. “We are one of the bright spots in this nation; we are one of the states with a growing economy. This would have a direct impact on it.” While a lot of the speeches at the rally took aim at the EPA, both King and Grassley took shots at the White House for its inaction on the matter. “This flabbergasts me. This decision, this proposal by the EPA, its flabbergasting because after all, I remember Barack Obama coming all over Iowa,” King said. “He launched his campaign here and he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Iowa launching his campaign in the caucuses. “It was all about renewable energy, the green industry was going to be developed,” he continued. “How could you be all about green industry, when this kind of proposal comes out of the EPA?” King said he is in support of a fair marketplace for both renewable fuels and the petroleum-based counterparts and that he is “confident” the EPA doesn’t have the legal authority pass this measure. He also pointed out how this measure would decimate the corn market. “We are going to stand together on this and we are going to tell them keep their hands off of the RFS. That’s our ‘Holy Grail,’”King said. Grassley followed King and before he spoke on Obama, he pointed out he wished the Wall Street Journal could see the crowd in a t t e n d a n c e, so they could see “an army of farmers out here” who are

ready to fight for the RFS. “There’s one person who can make all the difference in the world right now,” Grassley said, “and I believe he can do it without (having) any political purposes or for any other reason, and that is because he said, ‘I am for all of the above. I’m for green energy. I’m for biofuels. I’m for all of these.’” “And the President of the United States, if he would whisper in the ear of the director of the EPA, ‘I don’t think you’re doing the right thing,’ this would come to a halt right now,” Grassley said. Grassley went on to say that the renewable fuels industry is “battling ignorance” about its products nationally and the political power of “Big Oil” at work. “I hope that we get back to the basics,” Grassley said. “Ethanol is good for agriculture, it’s good for farmers, it’s good for small business/Main Street, it’s good for the environment, it’s good for good paying jobs in rural America that we never thought we would have. It’s good for our national defense; it’s good for our balance of trade. “I’ve never dealt with a product, in my entire life, where everything you talk about it and all the explanation you gave it was all good, good, good,” he continued. “We shouldn’t have to compromise on that whatsoever.” He went on to point out that farmers were the ones to answer the nation’s needs for alternate fuel sources after the oil embargoes that took place in the ’70s and ’80s. “We responded to the national emergency and we need to keep growing and all we got to do is make our point.” Grassley said. Branstad would be the final speaker and compared this rally to the outcry that took place when the International Olympic Committee previously decided to eliminate wrestling from the Olympic Games. “We know how to fight when we are attacked,” he said. “The (IOC) backed down and kept wrestling. We can do it. If we can do that with the (IOC), we ought to be able to do the same thing to the EPA.” Branstad said the campaign against the EPA’s proposal will be a grassroots campaign and his office launched a website: www.protecttherfs.com to combat this. He and all the other speakers encouraged citizens to leave a comment on the EPA’s website and to visit Branstad’s website to sign the petition against the proposal. “As you can see real clearly, the EPA’s proposal would be extremely harmful to Iowa,” Branstad said. “To our communities, to our families, to our jobs, to our farmers, to the environment and as Iowans we want good jobs in our state.” He cited the benefits the renewable fuels industry has brought to the state and called for unity amongst all Iowans. “We can’t let them turn the clock back on us,” Branstad said. “Tell your family, tell your friends, tell even strangers you meet on the street, tell them to visit our website ... and let the EPA know this proposal is bad for Iowa. “Bad for our farmers, bad for our families, bad for our environment, bad for our communities and bad policy and they need to reverse it,”  he continued. “We’ve just begun to fight.”

According to the agenda packet, the county is expected to be reimbursed $106,765 during the 2015 fiscal year if the report is certified by the board. Jasper County GIS Director Laurie Jackson will be seeking the board’s approval to enter into a contract with St. Charles, Ill.-based The Sidwell Company to provide aerial photography, digital orthophotography, and GIS services for the county. Sidwell is saying its services would provide the county with a new accurate surface designed to support the development of a half-foot ground resolution orthophotography for 2014 and 2017. The project would cover the entire county. Orthophotography combines the image characteristics of a photograph with the geometric qualities of a map. If the county approved the measure, Sidwell would charge the county $125,680 for its services.

Jealous girlfiend must watch her step on the dance floor DEAR ABBY: I have been dating my boyfriend, “Jose,” for a year. Before that, we were friends for five years. Ever since I’ve known him, he and his half-sister, “Blanca,” have danced together at parties. We’re all in our mid-20s. They dance salsa, merengue and other styles of music together. I used to think it was cute, but now that Jose and I are a couple, I find it annoying and a little creepy. He says Blanca loves to dance and can’t always find good partners. She gets mad when he dances with me instead of her during her favorite songs. I told Jose he can dance only with me at the parties or only with her. Not both. I don’t want to share him, and honestly, people joke that it’s incestuous. How can I make him understand how much this bothers me? What can I say to his half-sister when she gives me the evil eye? My relationship with her is friendly, but it was better before I started dating her half-brother. — TAKES ONLY TWO TO TANGO DEAR TAKES ONLY TWO: If you want to hang onto Jose, simmer down and be less heavy-handed. Dictating who he can dance with only makes you appear to be jealous, insecure and controlling. Because he and Blanca have danced together for so long, it’s understandable that she expects to dance with him. My advice is to be gracious and hold onto your temper, because if you don’t, your relationship with Blanca will no longer be friendly, and it could cost you your boyfriend.DEAR ABBY: My mother-inlaw is a good person, but she never wants to be around us or our children. She lives only 30 minutes away, has only one child (my husband) and has been widowed for more than five years. She has never called our house, didn’t visit when the kids were born and usually mails gift cards at birthdays and Christmas. My own mother died a few months ago. Our kids are almost 13 and 10, so they’re not babies anymore. I try to reach out to her, but she is cold and not responsive. What else can I do? — NO GRANDMA IN AUSTIN, TEXAS DEAR NO GRANDMA: What

does your husband think about this? Has his mother always been this way? Could the problem be that she dislikes you or is disappointed in her son? There is no way to force a connection on someone who is unwilling, and I’m not sure you would even want to. It appears your mother-in-law isn’t maternal and prefers her independence. I’m sorry that your feelings are hurt, but if you crave closeness with an older woman, you will have to look elsewhere to find it.DEAR ABBY: My family is having a Thanksgiving conundrum. My uncle and his wife have offered to host the holiday. My uncle hesitated about having it because he recently lost his job. My grandmother decided that each couple should chip in $50 to pay for the dinner. (The total amount will be $300.) We will all make and bring dishes with us as well. Their children are not being asked to pay anything. My grandmother thinks this is a good idea because it would cost us more than $50 to go out to dinner for Thanksgiving, but some of us think it’s odd that we’re being charged to attend our family’s dinner. No one else in the family is able or willing to host, so the only other option would be going to a restaurant. Any thoughts? — TURKEY TROUBLES IN PHILADELPHIA DEAR TURKEY TROUBLES: Just this — pay up! And while you’re offering thanks at the dinner table, be grateful that the person in need of financial help this holiday season isn’t you.

CMB falls in opener to Woodward-Granger

By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor SULLY — Outscoring their visitors 12-9 in the second quarter gave Lynnville-Sully’s Hawks the edge they needed in the 201314 season opener Friday night. Lynnville-Sully, ranked fourth in Class 1A in the Iowa girls’ basketball preseason poll, beat English Valleys’ Bears 42-39. The Hawks broke away from a 12-12 tie with that secondquarter surge for a 24-21 halftime lead. In the second half it was nipand-tuck between the Hawks and Bears. Lynnville-Sully was able to maintain its advantage. “It was a great win,The girls did a good job on defense keeping EV from getting into an offensive rhythm,” said Lynnville-Sully head coach Jerry Hulsing. “Our offense was OK, but we have to work on our ball movement, which will help us find the open looks.” Lynnville-Sully shot 36 percent, 15-of-42, from the field while English Valleys went 15-of-54 for 30 percent. The Hawks hit five 3-pointers to the Bears’ four from outside the arc. At the free-throw line, the Hawks were 7-of 20 and the Bears hit 3-of-6. Senior Lyndsay Terpstra fired in 13 points, dished out four assists and made two steals to lead LynnvilleSully. Senior Cassie Cullen pulled down nine Terpstra rebounds and scored nine points. Jade Van Rees fired in nine points. Van Rees and sophomore Marissa Vos each had three steals. Rylee Voss paced the Bears with 17 points, 16 rebounds and six steals. “I was very please on how hard our girls played, and how they overcame a couple of rough spots during the game,” Hulsing said, “They showed a lot of character.” The Hawk junior varsity won 48-9 led by Brenna Lanser with 13 points. Jelissa Rozendaal collected 14 rebounds. Lynnville-Sully (1-0) hosts Sigourney Tuesday. English Valleys 12-9-10-8—39 Lynnville-Sully 12-12-11-7—42 Scoring English Valleys — Voss 17, Barnes 9, Parmenter 6, Steffen 4, Miller 3.

By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer MAXWELL — Collins-Maxwell/ Baxter’s senior center Abbie Haupert had one of the best game in school his-

Pella Christian girls win By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor PELLA — Opening the 2013-14 basketball season at home is always a strong incentive to play well. Pella Christian’s Eagles played a solid opening contest to notch a 59-48 win over visiting Martensdale-St. Marys, 59-48, Friday night. Martensdale-St. Marys was ranked No. 12th in Class 1A in the Iowa girls’ preseason basketball poll announced Friday afternoon. “The girls came out with good intensity and focus for our first game of the season,” said Kevin Van Maanen, Eagles’ head coach. “While there are areas we need to improve upon, I was pleased with the overall efforts

of the team.” Lauren Jungling, 5-10 senior guard, fired in 23 points to lead the Eagles. Junior point guard Tessa Howerzly added 11 points. Hannah Beltman, 6-2 junior center, Jungling recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. The Eagles built a 12-point halftime advantage, 32-20. They staved off a strong challenge by the Blue Devils in the back-andforth second half. Pella Christian (1-0) plays at home Tuesday against Albia

Haupert played the game of her life in the paint for the Raiders, grabbing rebounds, blocking shots and scoring nearly every time she positioned herself under the basket. CMB fell behind by more than five points on multiple occasions, but Haupert’s ability to answer with post scoring kept her team in it until the end. She ended up with a triple double — 24 points, 11 rebounds and 12 blocks. The Raiders started the game strong relative to the Hawks. It took a little while for either team to establish an offensive flow. CMB broke the Hawks’ press early, converting on some early buckets. Sophomore Larson Carter nailed a baseline jumper to take a 6-2 lead. CMB came out with a clear gameplan to work the ball inside, feeding the ball down to Haupert to set up the offense. Later in the first, W-G’s fullcourt pressure forced several traveling violations from the Raiders, which allowed the Hawks to fight back at 8-6 at the end of one quarter. W-G’s Dalaney Bice hit a 10-footer to open the second, tying the game. Haupert answered with two free throws followed by a 3-pointer, giving the Raiders a five-point edge. Bridget Hurley jumped the passing lane for a steal and was fouled going to the hoop. She made 1-of-2 free throws for a sixpoint lead. The Hawk’s continued to keep up the pressure in the full-court, and it paid off for them. W-G tied it up at 14 after forcing three straight CMB turnovers. Hurley nailed a three with less than a minute remaining in the half, but W-G’s Abby Musser converted on CMB See Page 8A

Patriots stun Broncos in OT By The Associated Press This latest version of Brady vs. Manning was a rout. And then it wasn’t, stretching deep into overtime before New England’s biggest winning rally in franchise history gave it a 34-31 victory over Denver. In a game of turnovers in frigid and windy conditions Sunday night, Tom Brady brought the Patriots back from a 24-0 halftime hole created mostly by three lost fumbles. But Peyton Manning and Denver got sloppy in the second half, then Tony Carter had a punt hit him late in OT. New England (8-3) recovered, leading to Stephen Gostkowski’s 31-yard field goal to win it with 1:56 remaining. “We had some of those plays in the first NFL See Page 8A

Cardinals finish fourth in own tournament By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Two games are in the book for Newton Senior High’s Cardinal girls to start the 2013-14 basketball season. Both were losses at home over the weekend in the Newton Cardinal Hy-Vee Holiday Girls Basketball Tournament. “We’re a process-driven team this year. That’s how we’ve approached this season as coaches and players. We saw improvement from Friday night to Saturday and that’s part of the process,” said Brandon Sharp, Cardinal head coach. No, he nor the Cardinals are happy about losing 51-33 to Carlisle and 54-50 to Des Moines Christian. Sharp was happy about the effort he saw from the Cardinals in both games along with other aspects of the game. “We played better in the second half on Friday night and we got better today,” Sharp said following Saturday afternoon’s consolation contest against Des Moines Christian. In Friday’s opening-round games, Bondurant-Farrar held off Des Moines Christian 47-45 and Newton lost to Carlisle. Bondurant-Farrar won the tournament championship with a 46-31 win over Carlisle on Saturday. Newton’s junior guard Michaela Jacobsen was named to the all-tournament team. Also on the team were

Cardinals: Turnovers, free throws hamper Newton efforts Continued from Page 7A Newton had trouble getting its offense kickstarted in Friday’s contest with Carlisle, trailing 16-5 by the end of the first quarter. The first basket of the 2013-14 season was scored by Jacobsen at the 5:39 mark of the period to make it 6-2. Midway through the second quarter, the Cardinals faced a 20-6 deficit. They were down 25-11 at the break. The Cardinals made a strong push in the second half. Jacobsen scored at the 6:21 mark to make it 29-15. On the next trip up the court, Sydney Jenkins drove down the lane and dumped off the basketball to Shelby Gray for a basket. Carlisle’s Mary-Grace Wachal, who had 21 points in the game, nailed a 3-pointer to trigger a 6-2 run that put the

Mustangs fall to Knoxville in opener By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer KNOXVILLE — Priairie City-Monroe’s Mustangs fell behind to the Knoxville Panthers early, and despite winning each of the last three quarters, it was not enough to mount a full comeback. PCM lost its road opener, 59-56. “We got pounded on the boards in the first quarter, and gave them second and third chance opportunities that gave them a 20-7 lead in the first quarter,” coach Bret Grier said. “We also shot just terrible from the field. Luckily, we were able to keep in the game from the free-throw line. Knoxville has a very athletic team, and made some big shots each time we made a comeback,” he added. “Hats off to them. We scored 56 points and have lots of room for improvement offensively. I also think we have a lot of areas to improve defensively. We can’t be giving up nearly 60 points per game.” Knoxville started the game with a big run, jumping out in front of the Mustangs 20-7 after one quarter. PCM fought back in the second and pulled the game to 31-24 at halftime. After a back-and-forth third quarter, PCM trailed by six going into the final period of play. Despite having oppotrunities to tie the game late, the Panthers held on for the three-point victory. PCM’s next game is Tuesday night in the conference opener against Nevada.

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton’s Hannah Rhoads (32) drives for a fastbreak layup against Carlisle in Friday’s opening-round game of the Newton tourenament. The Cardinals cut Carlisle’s lead to 10 with under six minutes to play but go no closer, losing 51-33.

13-of-51, from the field in the game. The Cardinals were 5-of15 from the line. They had 43 rebounds, 11 steals and 22 turnovers. “That three in the fourth quarter was a dagger,” Sharp said after the game. “We also missed free throws tonight. We understand we have a lot of things to work on and that’s the process.” Saturday, the Cardinals got off to a better start against Des Moines Christian’s Lions. Stock had the opening basket of the game, but the Lions tossed in the next five points using 62Elsa Anderson and 5-10 Sara Juhl on the inside. Newton responded with a basket by Jenkins. Ebby Prewitt connected for a 3 for the Lions to bump their lead to 8-4 at the 5:25 mark of the first quarter. Following a timeout, the Cardinals went on a 14-2 run. Jacobsen and DMC’s Anderson traded baskets when action resumed. Rhoads made it 10-8 then back-to-back 3-pointers by Hutchinson and Jacobsen put the Cardinals on top. Jenkins hit with 26 seconds for Newton. The Cardinal defense created a fastbreak opportunity for Jessica Reynolds before the buzzer. Newton led 18-10 after one quarter. “Turnovers in the second quarter and free-throw shooting hurt us today,” Sharp said. “We didn’t take care of the basketball well against their press in the second quarter and they took advantage of it.” The Lions outscored the Cardinals 21-9 in the second period to claim a 31-27 halftime lead. The Lions were 5-of-8 from the free-throw line in the second period. Newton battled back from a 10-point deficit midway through the third quarter. Jenkins and Hutchinson scored buckets and Hutchinson sank a free throw to make it 37-32. It became a backand-forth affair. Hutchinson swiped the ball with 15 seconds on the thirdquarter clock. The Cardinals scored in transition with a pass to Jacobson for the basket. Newton trailed 44-38 headed into the fourth quarter.

With 4:27 remaining in the game, Jacobson scored for Newton to keep the game in reach, 48-44. A Lion turnover allowed the Cardinals to cut the deficit to two, 48-46, on a field goal by Stock. Newton forced a tie-up and got the basketball with 3:24 on the clock. Jacobsen’s basket tied the game at 48-48. Prewitt gave the lead back to the Lions and Des Moines Christian gave up just two more points in the final three minutes of the game. “We have to shoot free throws better. With the way the officials have to call the game now, free throws are going to be even more important. We saw a lot of good things in these first two games. Turnovers — with our youth, we’re going to have them,” Sharp said. The Cardinals shot 39 percent, 20-of-51, from the field against DMC. They were 8-of12 from the free-throw line while the Lions were 12-of-18. Jacobsen paced the Cardinals with 14 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Hutchinson tossed in 10 points and had three steals. Rhoads also had three steals. Gray pulled down seven of Newton’s 36 rebounds. Des Moines Christian got 14 points from Anderson. Juhl and Prewitt each had 11 points and Brittany Zimmer scored 10.

CMB: Final quarter rally not enough Continued from Page 7A a three-point play to tie the game going into halftime. Haupert came out and scored the first bucket of the second half, but after that, the Hawks made a run. Forcing several turnovers that led to easy inside buckets, the Hawks took a 27-21 lead. Haupert scored off a good pass by Lexi Breon then swished a 3-pointer on the next time up the floor to pull within three. After three quarters, the Hawks held a 31-28 lead. Musser kicked off the fourth quarter with a steal that led to an easy layup. W-G eventually worked its way to a 37-30 lead when Haupert scored to close the gap to five. On the next possession, Breon found an open Hurley under the basket. Hurley nailed the layup and was fouled on the play. She missed the free throw, but Haupert picked up the rebound and converted on the putback. CMB made a stop, and Breon was fouled driving to the hoop. She converted on both free throws to give CMB its first lead since the second quarter at 38-37 with 4:51 left. Neither team scored for more than two minutes until W-G’s Tori Manning hit a runner to give the Hawks the lead. CMB had the ball with less than a minute remaining. The Raiders had several chances off loose balls and offensive rebounds, but they could not find the bottom of the net. CMB eventually was forced to foul, and the Raiders fell 43-39. CMB will have an opportunity to bounce back Tuesday night against Roland-Story. GAME LEADERS: Points — Haupert 24, Hurley 6, Breon 5, Carter 4.

Thinking too much is a problem. Don’t let the Mercury and Saturn conjunction lead you in an overly serious direction. Invite the energetic Sagittarius sun to come to the rescue. She can be something of a provocateur, prodding playfully and inappropriately just to make things interesting, and she’ll give you the best out: laugh it off. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 25). The next seven weeks bring a strong sense of fate, and you will know that you are doing what you were meant to do. You’ll cut the ties that were dragging you down and form more helpful alliances in January. You’ll invest in your career, and it starts to pay off in June. Family growth gives you more connections. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 50, 44 and 20. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You know the secret to winning with people. It’s not what you say; it’s that you really care. Those who go forward heart-first

will make strong connections where others fail to connect at all. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Popular things aren’t always quality things, but usually there’s a very good reason why one thing rises to the top of everyone’s list at once. You’re likely to fall in line with the group consensus today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll get what you put up with. Having to stand up for yourself over and over can get tiring, but as long as you’re consistent, you will win in the end. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can still get your way on the big things, but some of the details will be moved around. You’ll compromise on many points but not on your values. Those remain unchanged for now. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your thinking now is very different from the way you thought 10 years ago, and it’s reasonable to assume you’ll

keep changing. Growth is the natural way. It’s not always graceful, but it’s usually necessary. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Trouble has been known to begin with the person doing exactly as he or she wishes. Rules, roles and responsibilities, though tedious, often nurture the best parts of us. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Study is not always noble. Ask the parents of perpetual college students — sometimes study is downright frivolous. The application of knowledge is more important than the acquisition of knowledge. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a right to do what you please, and it pleases you to do it right. The way you live will make a point to the rest of the world. But you’re not trying to say anything. You’re just being you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re adaptable, and that’s what will keep the peace in your group. Someone has to

adjust, and you don’t mind that it’s you this time. Your ego isn’t oversized, and your identity doesn’t hinge on one way of doing things. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Mercy is heralded as a virtue, and yet it can embolden the worst behaviors. Drawing a hard line is sometimes necessary. You’ll be making a decision about what to forgive and what not to forgive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The fight of good against evil usually isn’t set in the world of superheroes and villains. Today’s events prove the point when good triumphs in a hundred humble tasks approached with great love. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Motivated by curiosity, you’ll drive full speed ahead into a juicy mystery. Certainty is a dead-end road. As long as you don’t know for sure, new possibilities will keep opening a path before you.

Business Briefs

Unemployment rate drops to 4.6 percent

Zach Johnson/Daily News Bob Pace and the Dangerous Band entertained the crowd at the First Avenue Speakeasy with a variety of songs. Pace pulled out all the stops with playing some bass and tickling the ivory on the piano inside Speakeasy.

First Avenue Speakeasy, a change of pace in Newton By Zach Johnson Daily Staff Writer The definition and culture of “speakeasy” has changed since it was developed in the 1920s. A speakeasy by definition is an establishment that sold alcohol during the prohibition era in the United States. In 93 years, the concept has changed to bars that are known mostly by word of mouth as they doesn’t advertise on a larger scale. Since November of 2010, the town square of Newton has played host to its own speakeasy with the First Avenue Speakeasy. “Speakeasy to Newton is about a change of pace with a different atmosphere in all concepts with drinks, food, and entertainment,” owner Kim Johnson said. “It’s about holding a higher standard to the quality of music variety, a quality mixed drink or martini, quality food, and quality customer service.” The First Avenue Speakeasy has seen vast changes in its third year of business, while making sure to give a quality product overall. This weekend was truly a representation of the quality of First Avenue Speakeasy. On Saturday, the bar played host to its most renowned artist Bob Pace and the Dangerous Band. Pace

put on a performance that was well-received, with some patrons saying that it was the best bar shows they seen him in for awhile. During the show, Kim came up on stage and performed with the band as she has with many of the acts that come through the Speakeasy. “The acceptance of the groups to let myself and other talented members of the community share their talents truly sets the live shows at the Speakeasy apart from other bars in the area along with having a continuous entertainment schedule filled with a different variety of bands,” Johnson said. The Speakeasy introduced three new concepts to the bar in 2013: Sunday brunch, NFL Sunday Ticket and a regular allbaked food menu with a specialty homestyle meal served daily. The regular menu has 15 items, which range from $4-$6 with a full pizza being $10. The bar also has four beers on tap, which include Busch Light, Budweiser, Bud Light and Samuel Adams Seasonal. “The specialty menu items come from my love of cooking and spending time with the customers asking them what they would like to eat,” Johnson said. “The tap beer has been a great addition with it being something

new to the bar and cheaper option for customers.” Speakeasy made a major remodeling change by bringing in four big screen televisions and one projector screen televisions to have DirecTv NFL Sunday Ticket at the bar. Along with Sunday Ticket, the Speakeasy features a Sunday brunch with two menu items, eggs benedict and biscuits and gravy served with mixed fruit and a sweet muffin. The feature drink of the brunch is a build it yourself bloody mary. “We have a professional wait and kitchen staff to ensure the quality throughout the brunch,” Johnson said. The niche to the business is the extensive knowledge of the staff on mixed drinks and martinis. The growth of technology has made even your most casual mixologist obsolete. The staff at the Speakeasy keeps updated with mobile apps, websites, magazines, and word of mouth. “You have to be a well-trained bartender to work here. We keep up with the trends coming from all over,” Johnson said. The Speakeasy is also hosting its first ever karaoke contest. The qualifying rounds have been

DES MOINES — Iowa’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped to 4.6 percent in October from 4.7 percent in September. The current rate is also much improved from the October 2012 rate of 5.1 percent. Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate rose to 7.3 percent in October from 7.2 percent in September. “Despite some of the adverse effects of the federal government shutdown, Iowa’s economic expansion remained on track in October,” said Teresa Wahlert, director of Iowa Workforce Development. “The state’s unemployment rate continued to decrease in October, while the labor force and total employment measures were at their highest levels for the year.” The statewide estimate of unemployed persons decreased to 75,900 in October from 78,700 in September and 82,600 in October 2012. The current count of unemployed is at its lowest point for the year. The total number of working Iowans reached a current-year peak of 1,583,300 in October. This figure is 3,000 higher than September and 35,700 higher than one year ago. Seasonally Adjusted Nonfarm Employment Total nonfarm employment in Iowa declined by 800 jobs in October, bringing employment to 1,524,100. After reaching an all-time high of 1,533,400 in July, nonfarm employment suffered job losses for the next three months. The October loss could be partially attributable to the federal government shutdown. Education and health services accounted for the largest job gain in October at 2,600. Gains in the sector were evenly divided between education and health care. This month’s increase also puts the sector at a record high for both education and health care services. Manufacturing rebounded this month (+1,600) following three consecutive months of losses. Both durable and nondurable goods factories added jobs this month. Although manufacturing led the recovery following the last recession, hiring in the sector began to cool during the second half of 2013. Leisure and hospitality added 600 jobs in October due to gains in the arts and entertainment industries.
