School district rejects early retirement for 2016-17

Mailbox set on fire at Newton home

Arson suspected; incident under investigation By Jason W. Brooks Newton Daily News It only took Newton firefighters a few minutes to extinguish a mailbox that was lit on fire Monday night. However, determining who destroyed the mailbox, and why, might take much longer. Firefighters were called to a home on a residential block of East 17th Street North after someone discovered the plastic mailbox was on fire. It only

took a water can to put out the fire, which destroyed the mailbox. Rex Heisdorffer, of the Newton Fire Department, said the remnants of a plastic Gatorade container was found at the scene, and the smell of gasoline was present. The metal post inside the mailbox was not charred, according to a report. Arson is suspected, but the cause is under ARSON | 3A

The district voted unanimously at Monday’s meeting to not offer an early retirement program for 2016-17. A board policy requires an annual board vote on whether to offer a program.

NCSD would need to tax one year in advance By Jason W. Brooks Newton Daily News The Newton Community School District won’t have much of a cushion in the district’s management levy fund at the end of Fiscal 2017, according to Business Director Gayle Isaac. Largely on the strength of Isaac’s recommendation made at Monday’s meeting, the NCSD voted unanimously to not offer an early retirement program for 2016-17, despite at least one

request from an eligible faculty member that the district offer such a program. The board is required, per policy 410.1, to decide before each December on offering early retirement for that year. “We do not have sufficient management levy funds to support early retirement this year,” Isaac told the board. “I budgeted just enough money to cover our insurance, which comes to about $500,000. Our balance will be between $520,000 and $530,000.

So it’s a matter of timing. I won’t have much of a cushion until property taxes start rolling in during August.” Superintendent Bob Callaghan said the budget submitted to the state for approval by each year’s April 15 deadline in recent years has not included a management levy increase specifically put in to fund early retirement.

City looking to foster a high-quality of life for citizens in this purpose.

By Jamee A. Pierson Newton Daily News Fostering a high-quality of life is an important purpose in the city’s plan to move Newton into the future in a positive way.

St. Luke’s presents ‘The Redemption of Scrooge’ Holiday program runs through Christmas Day service

Angel Tree program at The Way The Newton Church of the Way is sponsoring children in Jasper County through the Angel Tree program. The program is through Prison Fellowship and for children who have parents that are incarcerated. If interested in helping the program this Christmas, a Pick an Angel tree is located in the north entryway on the lower level. Gifts between $15 to $25 are suggested from the wish list and are to be wrapped and returned to the church by Dec. 11.

By Jamee A. Pierson Newton Daily News To celebrate the Christmas season, St. Luke United Methodist Church is holding a six part series based on the book “The Redemption of Scrooge.” For the Advent season, the church, located at 501 E. 19th St. N., will follow the series at both the 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services, until the final two parts conclude on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. “The Redemption of Scrooge” is based on the classic tale “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens and the character transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge throughout the story. “Ebenezer Scrooge, a cold and miserly businessman, encounters a series of revelations about his own life through the appearances of three ghostly spirits: the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future,” St. Luke Pastor Audrey Young said. “Scrooge decides to change his life and release himself from the shackles of spiritual bondage. This redemption story is the inspiration for Matt Rawle’s new book, ‘The Redemption of Scrooge’ and the basis for this worship series.” Young said the church chose the series because it is far from a surface treatment of the popular

secular story. The book uses the correlation of Scrooge’s transformation to the one people are invited to through the birth of Jesus. The series walks participants through six messages including Peace in the Midst of Conflict, Hope in the Midst of Hopelessness, Love in the Midst of Rejection, Joy in the Midst of Despair, Awe and

Presence in the Midst of Loneliness. Described as a series that will proclaim that living in God’s grace is the antithesis of addiction to money, success, exclusion and looking out for only ourselves, “The Redemption of Scrooge” fits into a common rhetoric often heard in this day and age. Young also invites children to participate in the program through

the message “A blessing of the children.” “Time with children in worship is not just a blessing for the children, but a blessing of the children in all of us,” Young said. “Indeed, a child has the last word in Dicken’s tale – ‘God bless us every one.’” Contact Jamee A.

They couldn’t find a way to save the old Ottumwa church OTTUMWA (AP) — Pat Osteen isn’t sure if there was a way to save East End Presbyterian Church. The toll taken by the years was simply too much. The closure of the Morrell plant, whose employees once made up a large part of the congregation, hurt. Kids who grew up in the church moved away. Then their parents followed as they retired and aged. “It just seemed like there was no way to save the church. Everything we tried,

nothing worked,” Osteen told the Ottumwa Courier. “The church ended up with, I don’t know, three people under age 70.” The church has been a fixture in Ottumwa for more than a century. It hit 150 years a little while back. The decline was slow. Pews were taken out. Then the organ. That split the church between those who wanted it repaired and those who couldn’t see spending the money, Osteen said, taking more families away.

Thank You

The families of Danny “Bud” Bishop would like to say THANK YOU for the outpouring of love shown to us during this difficult time! The Bishop’s have the best family and friends ever! Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts!

Sunday school classes ended. Finances slid downward. The church had a part-time pastor. The final decision to close came Nov. 6, with the final services Sunday. It wasn’t always that way, of course. Osteen joined the church in 1947 and had been in Sunday school there since age 4. Joining was a landmark moment. “You’re 12 or 13 years old,” said Osteen. “To be asked to join a church is a big honor.”


As with any organization, it’s the people who seem to be the focus for most of the memories. Sure, folks remember the feel of a service of how the sanctuary looked on a particular day. But it’s the people who stand out all those years later. And it’s not always who you might think. “My memory is this elderly gentleman when I was a kid. He always came to church and always sat in the same place. I always sat up with him because I knew he

It’s too raw right now. There are the what ifs to work through. What if Morrell’s had stayed put? What if the congregation hadn’t become divided? “I don’t know if there was ever any way to save it or not,” said Osteen.

station north of Newton and having it close will cause an inconvenience to those who live nearby. “The reason I was told (it is closing) is because remodeling would cost too much,” Van Baale said. “Lots of trucks stop and use the store, and it is like a mom and pop store in Newton. I would hate to see it go.” Casey’s corporate office did not respond to a request for comment about the reasons behind closing the store.

way to do that is to tax one year ahead of offering the program. If the district intends to offer early retirement for 201718, for example, it would work best if the board builds in funding by increasing the management fund levy when it submits its budget in April of next year. For 2016-17, the management levy was raised by about 3.5 cents per $1,000 of property valuation — part of the district’s overall 24cent property tax levy increase from 2015-16.

Newton Police Chief Rob Burdess said police were never on scene during the brief moments when NFD was there. No report has been filed. Newton Fire Marshal Mike Knoll is in charge of investigating all fires in the city. He said it is a federal offense to harm or interfere with the operation of a mailbox or any U.S. mail. Burdess and Heisdorffer both said they are not aware of similar incidents occurring and do not know why the house would be targeted. There was no other damage to the house and the owners weren’t home at the time. The house is advertised for sale.

tirement benefits intact, while also allowing the organization to either eliminate a position, reduce staffing levels or hire a less-experienced replacement at a lower pay rate. Many other Iowa school districts are discussing similar programs. At last week’s Colfax-Mingo Board of Education meeting, board members discussed how a recent budget work session had come up with very limited ways to cut expenses, including early retirement. Prairie City-Monroe offered early retirement in 2014-15. The Newton board seemed torn on whether to use early retirement as a cost-cutting measure. Board member Don-

na Cook expressed concern about losing teaching experience; Board President Travis Padget said ending up with a budget deficit anyway means the district would have used a mixed-reviewed tool and still not solved its deficit. Board member Andy Elbert said the year-to-year tediousness makes early retirement an added source of contention in what are already intense annual budget discussions. “In my mind, we should either offer it every year, or take it off the table altogether,” he said.

Friedman asked if the management levy, since it is used to support a variety of expenses, could be approved in April, with the board deciding the following November to not offer an early retirement program that year. Callaghan and Isaac both said that is an option. Newton Schools last extended early retirement incentives to faculty in the 2013-14 school year. Early retirement, if any teachers or other longtime faculty decide to utilize it, is generally a cost-cutting measure for a company or organization. It allows some of the longest-tenured employees the freedom to leave with full re-

Continued from Page 1A Newton High School to offer “Tech Times with Teens” on a monthly basis to help users. It will also begin the process of offering 30 technology classes that focus on new and upcoming technology trends and devices. Additional areas the library will focus on include providing education on the new library catalog, offering programming to help parents understand the importance of reading to their children, increase the enrollment of adults in the summer reading program and begin work with the parks department to offer library events around the city. The parks department has two main areas of focus designated in the action plan. First, is to make improvements to the skate park at Aurora Park. The Newton Parks Board has been working on a plan to construct a new skate park with design plans currently underway. The second objective of the parks department is to construct a new clubhouse/community center at Westwood Golf Course. Initial designs have been presented for the building with further work, including a funding source, needed for the project to move forward. To encourage a vibrant sense of community, the city plans to create an annual cohesive summer calendar of events featuring parks, the library and other city events and collaborate with a minimum of 10 existing or emerging community events

that align with the city’s vision statement to expand the event’s marketing efforts locally and in the region. Another way the city will promote positive information is to engage residents through quarterly magazines, local marketing and social media. It plans to publish eight quarterly magazines and a minimum of 20 social media posts per month. A high priority for Newton is improving accessibility by focusing on sidewalks. In the next two years, the city will continue work on the “Sidewalk Inventory of High Priority Areas” map to bridge areas with no or segmented sidewalks and improve sidewalks in highly traveled parts of town. Along with foot traffic, bike and vehicle traffic will be addressed through the future route of the Hike and Bike Trail

and continuing to implement the 5-Year Street Maintenance Program. The city will work to develop a plan to connect Newton to one of the regional trail systems and determine the appropriate route to complete the city’s hike and bike trail loop. Streets including West 10th Street North, East Seventh Street North, East Third Street South, East 10th Street South, North Fifth Avenue West, North Sixth Avenue East, South Fifth Avenue West and South Fifth Avenue East will be a part of a future mill and asphalt overlay project to be completed by public works. The last goal to foster a high-quality of life is to support environmental sustainability. To do so, the city will work to implement energy efficiency improvements at city facilities including lighting projects at the

landfill, city hall, public work and the pool pavilion. The city also will work to increase recycling through the community by visit all multi-family residential owners to promote recycling, along with gaining compliance with 80 percent of multi-family complexes. To educate the community at least eight varied classes on sustainability will be provided at the library. The library will also be included in a project to promote monarch butterflies and other pollinator habitat development. In the coming years, the city will work to crease a new landscape at the library to include an Iowa native, natural aesthetic that increases pollination. Contact Jamee A.

Newton Police Department to host Coffee with a Cop Dec. 10 Newton Daily News Coffee with a Cop program offers opportunity to meet officers and discuss community issues. The next meeting will be Dec. 10 where officers from Newton Police Department will come together with community mem-

bers in an informal setting to discuss issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. The public is invited to attend. The event begins at 10 a.m. on Dec. 10 at Midtown Cafe, 120 First St. N. in Newton Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more

about their law enforcement agency. The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel

that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, oneon-one interaction. “We look forward to having discussions with community members and forging lasting relationships,” Breckenridge said. “These interactions are the foundation of community

partnerships.” The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between law enforcement and community members one cup of coffee at a time. Contact Lt. Wes Breckenridge with questions at 641791-0850.

Get out, see your country W

Babbling Brooks Jason W. Brooks

hen John Cougar Mellencamp recorded his 1980s music videos in the southern half of his home state of Indiana, he was showing off a unique section of America. On a 2012 trip to visit my father and various friends and relatives, I drove through those towns — along with many cities that form the backbone of our nation — and it gave me with a renewed sense of hope. That trip is somewhat a sad memory, as it turned out to be the last time I would hear my dad’s voice and see his smile, as he passed away about two years later. However, that trip also provided a measure of reassurance that with all the vast human and natural resource available to America, every daunting problem can be solved and every seemingly unprecedented crisis can be survived or

averted. From the blues clubs of Memphis to the farmers and ranchers of western Kansas, the U.S. has a central section and coastal plains that has distinctly different peoples, working in unison to keep us fed, clothed and in relative luxury. Taking such a trip on the ground allows you to see America from a grass-roots level, and it was a unique, mind-opening experience. I’d assume many of our readers have seen the rolling hills or crop-filled plains of Iowa and surrounding states and might have been to a large, urban, coastal city. But what about the Blue Ridge, the broad expanses of the American West or the forests of the Pacific Northwest or the far Northeast? There is much to see and explore, as we still only occu-

py a small percentage of our land. My journey from New Mexico to southwestern Virginia took me to Oklahoma City, Memphis and Beale Street and the Smoky Mountains. Once in Virginia, my father and I took in the Booker T. Washington birthplace, a Class A Carolina League baseball game and some easy walks around a lake. Visits with childhood friends in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. showed me gridlock and the post-9/11 excess of police routing traffic around the D.C. monuments. It’s so tough to enjoy that city anymore. In Baltimore, I smelled the air of the Chesapeake Bay, saw my beloved Baltimore Orioles’ Camden Yards digs for the first time and visited my aunt in Harrisburg, Pa. A climb of the steep interstates across Pennsylvania and West Virginia took me to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio and to singing New Edition’s “Mr. Telephone Man” at a Columbus, Ohio karaoke club, all in the one day. More baseball, in Cincinnati, was fol-

lowed by a drive across Indiana’s Mellencamp towns, then Illinois, and saw St. Louis from the top of the Gateway Arch. I survived a nasty hailstorm that claimed lives on I-70 in Denver, met deaf Coloradans that allowed me to finally use my long-dormant sign language skills, and saw the Rocky Mountain slopes of Colorado Springs just weeks before they were ablaze in wildfires. After returning by way of the majestic Raton Pass (another first for me), I realized the country isn’t really that big. My destinations and fun on the trip were sort of urban but there was plenty of rural greatness to pass along the way. And it’s filled with people, landforms and plentiful water and sunshine for us to harness and use for prosperity — as long as we can get past the squabbles that have long hindered us from communicating. We have a spectacular nation — we just need to learn more about the people and places in it. Contact Jason W. Brooks at

American Conservative Ben Shapiro

Will conservatives stand up to Trump if they must? Here’s an alternate-reality scenario. It’s 2016, and the president-elect of the United States is ready to take office. Her chief advisor pledges a trillion-dollar stimulus package directed at infrastructure. The advisor explains: “It’s everything related to jobs. The conservatives are going to go crazy. I’m the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. ... It’s the greatest opportunity to rebuild everything. Shipyards, iron works, get them all jacked up. We’re just going to throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. It will be as exciting as the 1930s. ... We’ll govern for 50 years.” Meanwhile, President-elect Hillary Clinton allegedly meets with foreign business interests working to enrich her. She deploys her allies to inform ambassadors that if they patronize the Clinton Foundation, she’d appreciate it. She says that she’ll divest herself of all connections to the Clinton Foundation but refuses to hand it off to any third party to handle, insisting instead that Chelsea Clinton run the place. Meanwhile, she brings Clinton into top-level diplomatic meetings without informing the press. When Vice President-elect Tim Kaine is met with protests at a public event, she takes to Twitter to castigate the attendees, demanding an apology. She goes on to criticize talk radio and Fox News for unfairness. “Equal time for us?” she asks. This is an alternate reality. But each and every statement and event mentioned above has already happened to President-elect Donald Trump. Trump’s top advisor, Stephen Bannon, is pushing economic statism, grinning at the destruction of conservative economists. Trump met off the record with property developers Sagar and Atul Chordia, the builders of the first Trump-brand property in India, as well as developer Kalpesh Mehta, whose firm claims to be the “exclusive India representative of the Trump Organization.” He sneaked Ivanka Trump into a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He tweeted his thoughts on the cast of “Hamilton” and the one-sided comedy of “Saturday Night Live,” asking, “Equal time for us?” The point of this exercise isn’t to rip Trump. It’s to point out that conservatives who rightly tore Hillary Clinton apart for pay-for-play corruption and hardcore big government leftism shouldn’t grant Trump a free hand just because he leads the Republican Party. In fact, that’s the biggest mistake Republicans can make. Trump has already challenged traditional conservative standards. He’s made Republicans back off their “character matters” arguments. He’s forced Republicans to swallow anti-conservative heresies on economics (free trade is a negative; entitlements should be left alone), social issues (he thinks same-sex marriage should be enshrined by the Supreme Court and praises Planned Parenthood) and foreign policy (his coziness with Russia used to be taboo). Republicans did all of this to stop Hillary Clinton. But now, Clinton has been dispatched. That means it’s time for conservatives to hold Trump accountable. There’s no longer any “better than Hillary” excuse making. It’s time for Trump to perform. It’s too early to tell whether Trump will become a decent president. But conservatives ought to fight for something better than “not Hillary” — or else, they can simply acknowledge that they had no real objective standards for those who seek to govern other than political convenience.



Native Americans condemn the Dakota Pipeline, the law doesn’t According to environmental activists, the Dakota Access Pipeline Project crushed Native American rights, heritage -- and objections. But the federal judge presiding over the case says the pipeline company and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have been diligent and respectful in their efforts to address Native American concerns. I’m with the judge on this one. The pipeline will transport 470,000 barrels of domestically-produced crude oil daily 1,200 miles from the Bakken shale formation in northwest North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa, to Illinois refineries. The majority of the almost-complete pipeline is on private land and needs no federal permits. But it needs Corps permits where it crosses a number of waterways and sits near culturally sensitive areas. Enter the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe -- trying to scuttle the pipeline -- aided and abetted by outside activists, including Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who defaced private property for a photo-op and subsequently earned an arrest warrant. The tribe claims the Corps didn’t consult it, but U.S. District Judge James Boasberg wrote in his September opinion that the Corps reached out to the tribe multiple times with little to no response. “The Tribe largely refused to engage in consultations,” the judge said. Eventually, the tribe

Institute for Policy Innovation Merrill Matthews responded, but at the last-minute effort to stop all progress. The tribe also claims the pipeline ignores Indian heritage lands. The judge disagreed, noting the company used “past cultural surveys” to avoid historic sites, and it “mostly chose to reroute” where “unidentified cultural resources… might be affected.” The judge concluded, “the pipeline route had been modified 140 times in North Dakota alone to avoid potential cultural resources.” That’s accommodation, not exploitation. The Dakota Access Pipeline also intentionally parallels a natural gas pipeline that’s been around for years.  According to Judge Boasberg, “Dakota Access chose this route because it had ‘been disturbed in the past -- both above and below ground level’” making it less likely that “new ground disturbances would harm intact cultural or tribal features.” In short, the judge rejected the tribe’s claims with well-documented reasons. If the tribe really wanted safety, it’d embrace pipelines. Scientific American points out that 2.5 million miles of U.S. “pipelines are

roughly 70 times safer than trucks when it comes to transporting fuel.” The article notes that many of those pipelines are aging. That’s exactly why you want companies building new pipelines with the latest technology and environmental protections.  But the issue was never about safety of the protesters. Raising concerns about endangered Indian historic sites is a tactic the left is using to achieve its larger goal: ending fossil fuels.  President Obama asked the pipeline company, Energy Transfer Partners, to delay construction, but an appeals court cleared the way for continuation in limited areas -and the company decided it would.  Regardless of who wins in the Dakota Access pipeline battle, this won’t be the last of the anti-pipeline demonstrations. The media have widely and favorably covered the protests, so protesters are targeting other pipelines. Celebrities are flying in on their private jets so they can get involved -- and photographed.  Those who believe we need fossil fuels -- at least for the foreseeable future -- to power our economy and protect us from foreign threats need to resist these radical efforts.  We’re already protecting our cultural heritage. This fight is about protecting our way of life. Merrill Matthews is a resident scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation in Dallas, Texas.

Police Blotter Newton Police Department • Terry L. Wilfawn, 27, of Newton, is charged with second-degree theft, interference with official acts and possession of drug paraphernalia after police were called at 4:35 p.m. on Sunday to the parking lot of the American Legion in reference to a stolen vehicle. Wilfawn was sleeping inside of the vehicle. He told officers he borrowed the vehicle, and the keys were inside of it. The owner of the vehicle told police he didn’t loan it to anyone. Wilfawn was reportedly swearing and mak-

FAMILY CIRCUS | Wednesday | Nov. 30, 2016

Self-made entrepreneur enjoys new-found popularity in bed DEAR ABBY: I recently started seeing a self-made entrepreneur. He’s intelligent, and basically the most amazing man I have ever been with. Because of his position and stature, many beautiful and sophisticated women throw themselves at him. A friend of his told me that in the months that I’ve known him, he has had sex with at least five other women, several on the first date. I’m not angry about it since we never formally agreed to be exclusive, but I’m in love with him and want him all to myself. When I confronted him, he said that because he never had success with women previously, he is prone to seduction. He said they didn’t mean anything to him and that he wants to be with me. I have dropped the matter for now, but I’m still concerned. I have tried to step up my game in the bedroom, and I’m willing to do anything to stop him from looking elsewhere. How do I make him give up his harem? — WILLING TO DO ANYTHING DEAR WILLING TO DO ANYTHING: I wish you had more clearly defined what “prone to seduction” means. Was he saying that because years ago he had little success with women he is enjoying the attention? While you may be willing to “do anything” to have him all to yourself, if this man craves variety and is trying to make up for lost time, there’s nothing you can do to dissuade him. The two of you appear to be at very different places in your lives. If you want a man who is willing to have an exclusive relationship, you’re going to have to look elsewhere. DEAR ABBY: I was just offered a HUGE promotion at my company. It will mean more than a 40 percent increase in pay, which is unheard of in my company, which has more than 10,000 employees. People in my department

are not taking it well. Even my director did not congratulate me. Taking on this new endeavor kind of scares me. I have had a tough year in my current position, and this new job is seriously tailored to me. My current manager — who is new to the department — feels this job was meant for me. She says I need a fresh start, and she has faith in me. What’s awkward is, the position involves working with some of the same people I worked with previously, although in a different capacity. Am I taking on too much? I know the team I will be working with, and I have a feeling I will love it. I’m just scared of setting myself up for failure. My boss and new manager are giving me a great opportunity, and I don’t want to let anyone down. — UNSURE IN THE MIDWEST DEAR UNSURE: If your boss and new manager didn’t feel you were capable of taking on the new assignment, they could have offered the job to the numerous other people at the company. Your former director may not have congratulated you because he/she was jealous, so do not take the silence to heart. As to your fear that you won’t succeed, all you can do is give it your best and keep moving forward. If you do that, you won’t let anybody down — including yourself.

Father charged with murder after child dies


ANKENY — An Ankeny father has been charged with first-degree murder after the death of a toddler he is accused of injuring earlier this year. Michael Anthony Lourens, 29, was arrested Monday on the murder charge and a count of child endangerment causing death. Police say the 9-month-old baby suffered a traumatic brain injury while in Lourens’ care on Jan. 20. Officials say the girl later died, leading to the new charges against Lourens.

Jackpot rigging scandal grows in scope as trials near DES MOINES (AP) — A prosecutor says two brothers accused of conspiring to fix lottery games in five states had rigged another drawing for which they claimed a jackpot and planted software on additional computers that would have enabled them to fix more games if they hadn’t been caught. Trials are scheduled in Iowa early next year for Eddie Tipton, a former lottery computer technology official, and his brother Tommy Tipton, a former deputy sheriff and justice of the peace in Texas. They’ll be tried separately on a charge of ongoing criminal conduct. Eddie Tipton, who was previously convicted of a separate lottery fraud, faces an additional charge of money laundering. The trial for Tommy Tipton, 52, is scheduled for Jan. 23 and the trial for Eddie Tipton, 53, is set for Feb. 13. A third man charged in the conspiracy, Texas businessman Rob-

ert Clark Rhodes II, has reached a plea agreement and is expected to testify against the Tipton brothers. Rhodes is a long-time friend of Eddie Tipton. Prosecutors allege Eddie Tipton took advantage of a false random number generating program he designed and placed in lottery computers that allowed him to predict winning numbers on specific

days of the year. Tipton’s job at the Urbandale, Iowa-based Multi-State Lottery Association was to write software designed to randomly pick numbers for lottery computers used for various games by 37 state and territorial lotteries. In documents filed Monday, Assistant Iowa Attorney General Rob

Sand revealed for the first time that the random number generating program allegedly used in the scheme was found on an Indiana lottery computer and another at the MUSL headquarters in Iowa. A computer expert will testify that the software had not been activated and no additional lottery games in the states are believed to have been compromised.

Debate sparked over Iowa public pensions DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has sparked a pension discussion about whether a switch to a defined contribution plan would meet public employee needs and better protect taxpayers. Democratic State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald said public employees in the state should be concerned about the potential to do away with the Iowa Public Employees’ Retirement System, also known as IPERS. The system has 350,000 members. Fitzgerald said the problem with defined contribution plans, similar to 401(k) plans, proposed by some lawmakers and organizations is that they place the financial risk on employees who are stuck with high fees for investments. “We want our second grade English teachers to work on being second grade English teachers,” Fitzgerald said. “They

don’t have any skills in managing asset allocation and all those kinds of things.” The contribution program is considered less risky for employers because there’s no promise of a specific benefit when a worker retires. In 2015, an actuarial study by Cavanaugh MacDonald Consulting LLC found that IPERS had long-term unfunded liabilities of almost $5.5 billion. The Iowa Chapter of Americans for Prosperity, Iowans for Tax Relief and the Public Interest Institute in Mount Pleasant have endorsed shifting IPERS to a defined contribution plan. “For us, it’s one way that we can protect taxpayers,” ICAP state director Drew Klein said. “This is even more important because there seems to be differing opinions on what kind of interest we can expect on those IPERS’ investments.”

Pipeline protest arrests strain North Dakota’s court system BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The hundreds of arrests during the months of protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota have created an unprecedented burden for the state’s court system, which faces huge cost overruns and doesn’t have enough judges, lawyers and clerks to handle the workload. Police have made nearly 575 arrests since August during clashes at the protesters’ main camp along the pipeline route

in southern North Dakota and at protests in and around the state capital, Bismarck, about 50 miles to the north. That’s far more arrests than these areas typically deal with and it could lead to delays in bringing cases to trial, experts say. “We don’t have sufficient judges to get all of those cases heard in a timely fashion,” said Sally Holewa, North Dakota’s state court administrator. The state judicial system will ask the Legislature next year for

an additional $1.5 million to cover protest-related costs. That amounts to about 1.5 percent of its current two-year budget. “This is a first,” Holewa said. “The judicial branch has never had to ask for a deficiency appropriation in its history,” which dates back more than a century. The protest-related cases also are putting a pinch on the organization that provides public defenders in North Dakota. The Commission on Legal

Counsel for Indigents might seek an additional $670,000 from the Legislature, which amounts to about 3 ½ percent of its current two-year budget, according to its executive director, H. Jean Delaney. “It is highly unusual,” Delaney said. “We did make a (similar) request once before, during the oil boom, in the 2013-15 biennium. It’s kind of interesting — it was kind of a similar situation, where court cases really grew.”

The commission has accepted more than 225 protest-related cases. They are being handled by 65 defense attorneys, and the commission is seeking seven more. South Central District Court, where the cases are being handled, didn’t immediately have data on the total number of cases or any backlogs. However, Holewa said the sheer volume of cases raises concerns about the defendants’ right to a speedy trial and due process.

Iowa’s 2016 shotgun deer season preview Newton Daily News The first of Iowa’s popular shotgun deer seasons is Saturday to Dec. 7 when an expected 75,000 orange clad hunters head to the timber. That group will be followed by 50,000 hunters who prefer the Dec. 10-18 second gun season. Each contingent will also pack along thousands of antlerless tags, to extend their time in the field. Fans of cold weather purchase about 40,000 tags for the Dec. 19 through Jan. 10 late muzzleloader season. Iowa’s shotgun seasons al-

low for group drives; drivers pushing deer toward blockers. Anyone in the group may tag a downed deer — with their own tag. That stands in contrast to other states — and even Iowa’s more solitary muzzleloader and bow seasons. However, it has proven to be an efficient method for taking deer, since modern deer hunting was introduced here in the early 1950s. Whatever the season, any deer must be tagged before it is moved or within 15 minutes — whichever comes first. It also holds the potential for danger, as drivers move

closer to, or across, their friends on a drive. That’s why wearing solid blaze orange is mandatory. The minimum amount covers a hunter’s torso. But more is better. For several years now, deer hunters have noticed fewer whitetails than in the early 2000s. That is by design. A decade ago, state lawmakers instructed the DNR to reduce the deer population, after steady growth through the previous few decades. With the addition of county and season specific antlerless tags, generous quotas

and a couple extra seasons, near Thanksgiving and during January, hunters responded. Adaptive regulation changes have lowered the deer herd to mid-1990s target levels, in all but a handful of counties. Hunters in 27 north central and northwest counties have no county antlerless tags and may take only antlered deer during the first shotgun season. Iowa’s overall deer harvest across all seasons last year was 105,401, down 30 percent from the 2006 peak and the 2016 harvest should be similar. The 2014 harvest was esti-

mated at 101,595. “Now is a good time for the DNR to work with hunters and landowners to help develop a better understanding of proper deer management; including the benefits of harvesting does and keeping deer numbers at ecologically acceptable levels,” said Andrew Norton, state deer biologist for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. “Hunters working with landowners at the local level are the best and most efficient way to keep deer numbers acceptable and provide a high quality deer herd.”

IOWA CITY (AP) — It’s called “Project Lio-rama.” The University of Iowa Museum of Natural History is appealing directly to the public to fund a new diorama exhibit for its lion and lioness — two of the most popular denizens of the museum’s Mammal Hall. And these aren’t just any two anonymous specimens of Panthera leo. They are Harry and Josephine, a pair of lion cubs brought to Iowa City from South Africa in the late 1920s who spent years living together in the small zoo in City Park. The Iowa City Council voted to close the zoo in 1976. Harry, aka “King Leo,” died in 1931 and was added to the museum’s exhibit. Josephine, aka “Pet,” joined him after she died in 1939. The pair was not always displayed together over the next eight decades, but during renovations in the 1980s they were placed for storage in a spare, unfinished exhibit booth. They have remained there, unchanged, ever since. Many of their mammalian class members, in the meantime, have since been featured in three-dimensional reconstructions of their habitats. “So it’s overdue,” said Trina Roberts, director of the Pentacrest Museums, which include the UI Museum of Natural History and the Old Capitol Museum. Given how often museum patrons over the years have asked why Harry and Josephine weren’t featured in their own diorama, museum officials thought a crowdfunding appeal might be a way to combine a slice of Iowa City history with a chance to tell a broader global story about lions, zoos and conservation efforts. “That’s one reason this is such a great project to take on,” Roberts said. “It’s both a natural history story as well as a local story that some

people in the area already know. We’ve had patrons who came to see the lions as kids and now are telling the story as they bring their grandkids.” The Press-Citizen reports the resulting $10,000 campaign is one of three projects chosen to kick off the university’s new GOLDrush site, a new online crowdsourcing platform developed by the UI Foundation and the Office for the Vice President of Research and Economic Development. The other $10,000 campaigns on the site are “Health for All: Improve Health Access for Congolese Refugees,” which aims to improve access to health care for women and children in Johnson County’s Congolese community, and “Distraction in Action: Helping Kids in Pain,” which supports the development and availability of a digital app that can help distract children who are undergoing painful medical procedures. Every campaign has a 30-day window to raise the money. UI officials are quick to point out that the new platform is meant to augment, not replace, the university’s larger-scale funding efforts through the UI Foundation, state appropriations and research grants. “Those efforts involve raising hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars,” said Dan Reed, UI’s vice president for research and economic development. “(The GOLDrush site) involves projects designed to appeal to the donor who says, ‘I can’t send you a thousand dollars, but I can send you a $50 check.’” The projects featured on the site will have a maximum budget of $10,000 — which Reed described as a “realistic target” based on the history of other successful crowdfunding efforts on platforms like or

Iowa schools and communities are reminded that free seedlings will be available to them again this spring through the DNR’s Trees for Kids program. Each school building and community may order one free packet consisting of 200 bare-root seedlings, 50 each of four selected species. The seedlings are delivered in April or May and are generally used as part of Earth Day/Week celebrations. Many are distributed to students, family,

staff and community residents. Others are planted on school grounds and in parks, or use as part of educational programs. Orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis until 200 packets are requested. “Most people probably aren’t thinking about planting right now,” Laura Wagner, DNR Trees for Kids Coordinator said. “But because this program and our packets are so popular, we encourage folks to order early to get the best selections.” Interested schools and communities need

to complete a simple application form and those receiving packets will be asked to email at least one photo of the trees being planted and a short paragraph indicating where and why they were planted. No other requirements are necessary to receive the free trees. The application deadline is April 1, 2017 and the application form, packet sheets with species photos and information, and instructions can be found at www.iowadnr. gov/urbanforestry by clicking on Trees For Kids Earth Month Celebration.

Official: Ohio attacker was angry about treatment of Muslims COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Somali-born student who went on a car-and-knife rampage at Ohio State University railed on Facebook against U.S. interference in Muslim lands and warned, “If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace” with the Islamic State group, a law enforcement official said Tuesday. The posts from Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s account came to light after Monday’s violence, which left 11 people injured. Investigators are looking into

whether it was a terrorist attack. “America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that,” he wrote, using the Arabic term for the world’s Muslim community. The posts were recounted by a law enforcement official who was briefed on the investigation but wasn’t authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. “Every single Muslim who disap-

Dozens arrested during protests for higher minimum wages CHICAGO (AP) — Dozens of people were arrested Monday as they participated in protests nationwide for a $15 per hour minimum wage. Fast-food restaurant workers and home and child-care workers rallied in cities including Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and New York on Tuesday morning. In many cities the protesters blocked busy intersections. In Chicago, hundreds of protesters at O’Hare International Airport were outside terminals chanting “What do we want? $15! When do we want it? Now!” Police gated an area to allow travelers room to walk. As many as 500 workers at the

airport planned to strike. More protests were expected nationwide later in the day. Thousands plan to walk off the job at McDonald’s restaurants. The efforts are part of the National Day of Action to Fight for $15. About 25 of the 350 protesters in New York City were arrested. One protester, Flavia Cabral, 55, struggles to make ends meet with two part-time jobs. “All these people don’t have savings because we’re working check to check,” Cabral said. “We have to decide what we are going to get: We’re going to pay rent or we’re going to put food on the table or we’re going to send my child to school.”

proves of my actions is a sleeper cell, waiting for a signal. I am warning you Oh America!” Artan also said. Dozens of FBI agents began searching Artan’s apartment for clues to what set off the rampage. Artan drove a car up onto a sidewalk and plowed into a group of pedestrians shortly before 10 a.m. He then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife before he was shot to death by a campus police officer. Most of the victims were hurt by the car, and two had been stabbed, officials

said. One had a fractured skull. Four remained hospitalized Tuesday. Artan was born in Somalia and was a legal permanent U.S. resident, according to a U.S. official who was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity. A law enforcement official said Artan came to the United States in 2014 as the child of a refugee. He had been living in Pakistan from 2007 to 2014. It is not uncommon for refugees to go to a third-party country before being permanently resettled.

Trump rollback of Obama climate agenda may prove challenging WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump plans to dismantle President Barack Obama’s efforts to reduce planet-warming carbon emissions. But delivering on his campaign pledges to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency and bring back tens of thousands of long-gone coal mining jobs could prove far more difficult. Internal documents from the president-elect’s transition team reviewed by The Associated Press show the new administration plans to stop defending the Clean Power Plan and other recent Obama-era environmental regulations that have been the subject of long-running legal challenges filed by Republican-led states and the fossil fuel industry. Against that potential opposition, environmental groups are gearing up to defend Obama’s environmental legacy in court. “We anticipate challenging every single attempt to roll back regulations on air, water and climate,” said Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, who added that his group is already hiring additional lawyers. Fundraising for environmental causes also has spiked

But delivering on campaign pledges to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency and bring back long-gone coal mining jobs will likely prove difficult.

since Trump’s victory. Though Republicans have for years blamed environmental regulations for the decline of coal, data from the U.S. Department of Energy shows the primary cause is the emergence of cheaper, more abundant natural gas from hydraulic fracturing. Another factor is the plummeting cost of solar panels and wind turbines, which now can


produce emissions-free electricity cheaper than burning coal. Leading Trump’s transition team on the EPA is Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a libertarian think tank that gets financial support from the fossil fuel industry and that opposes “global-warming alarmism.”

Cardinal wrestlers pin down Toreadors By Jocelyn Sheets Newton Daily News

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Crunch time — Newton High’s Reece Caves has Boone’s Norbert Riyazimana bent over in an attempt to take him down during their varsity 138-pound match in Tuesday’s season opener at Newton. Caves won 7-4, helping Newton to a 49-20 dual win over visiting Boone.

When former Newton High teammates Reece Caves and Norbert Riyazimana came on the wrestling mat Tuesday, Newton’s Cardinals led visiting Boone, 12-6. The two sophomores faced off in the varsity 138-pound match in the 2016-17 season opener. Caves, who is on the Newton team, built a 6-2 lead over Boone’s Riyazimana by the end of the first two-minute period. Riyazimana used a reverse to open the second period, but Caves got an escape to take a 7-4 lead into the third period. Caves won 7-4. Newton’s Cardinals opened the season as part of the Newton Winter Classic featuring wrestling and boys’ basketball action against the teams from Boone. The Cardinal wrestling team won six of nine matches contested on the mat against

Newton boys outlast Boone in basketball season opener By Jocelyn Sheets Newton Daily News Newton High’s Cardinals had showed they could put points up on the board. They owned an eight-point lead with 39 seconds left in their 201617 season opener Tuesday at home. It was the Cardinal defense which sealed the win. That eight-point lead melted to three as Boone’s Ethan Lewis stepped to the free-throw line. Lewis was fouled with 28.8 seconds on the clock by Newton’s Morgan Maher. The foul came on a 3-point field goal attempt then a technical foul was assessed against Maher, who had fouled out of the game. Lewis sank both technical foul shots and downed three more free throws to make it 73-70. Boone had the ball and an opportunity to tie the game. The Toreadors had already triggered in eight 3-pointers in the game. “Our guys did a nice job switching out on the screens and making it tough for them to get those shots off. We secured a rebound at the end and the game,” Newton head coach Bill Liley said of the 75-70 win. “I feel bad for Morgan, but it is something he is going to learn can’t happen again. We had some adversity and the guys found a way to persevere.” Boone took a timeout with 12.7 seconds on the clock. The Toreadors did get two shots off, but not good ones. Newton junior guard Garrett Sturtz pulled the final defensive rebound, was fouled and sank two free throws for the final margin. CARDINALS | 4B

the Toreadors. The Cardinals claimed four victories on forfeits on their way to a 49-20 win over Boone. “It’s always good to build on a win,” Newton head coach Andy Swedenhjelm said. “We had good things and some disappointing things tonight which is to be expected with the first match of the season. We have areas to work on such as conditioning.” Sophomore Blake Iske won by forfeit at 120 followed by a victory by pin from junior Ross Hull over Boone’s Parker Reiff at 126 pounds. Hull had a first-period takedown. He came off the bottom for a reversal in the second period and put Rieff ’s back to the mat with 1 minute, 12 seconds left in the period. “I went in feeling pretty confident for the first match of the season,” Hull said.

NCMP boys split home opening meet By Jocelyn Sheets Newton Daily News

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Newton High junior guard Garrett Sturtz drives to the basket for two points past Boone’s Dresden Wilson (24) in the first half of Tuesday’s game in Newton. Sturtz had a game-high 33 points leading Newton to a 75-70 win in the season opener.

Swimming at home for the first time this season, NCMP’s boys pushed past Oskaloosa, 68-25. They chased Des Moines Lincoln all night, losing 56-38. “It was a great meet. The guys were pretty excited to compete at home. Lincoln just had more depth than we did,” NCMP head coach Sarah Patterson said. “Oskaloosa is a really small team with some strong swimmers.” NCMP opened strong in front of a home crowd, winning the first event — the Gaylor 200-meter medley relay. The winning team of Jacob Nedder, Carter Briggs, Caleb Gaylor and Clay Trotter combined for a season best time. Full results with times were not available at presstime. Patterson said they ran into a computer problem Tuesday night and didn’t have electronic copies of the results available. Trotter NCMP also took third in the medley relay race with the team of Clay Meyer, Paul Maharry, Mason Lee and Logan Heisdorffer. Patterson said the foursome beat Lincoln’s B relay team in an exciting race. Gaylor won two varsity events — the 200 individual medley and the 400 freestyle. He was only a second off the NCMP record in the 400. “He will swim the 400 freestyle again on Saturday in our home invitational meet. He is stoked to take down the record,” Patterson said.

It’s been a while since we started the season 2-0 here,” Colfax-Mingo coach Erin Hume said. “It’s our first meet. We are young and made some mistakes. We saw some fight and some guys stepped up, but we have a lot of learning to do still.” Teed’s 7-5 win at 138 C-M | 2B

CMB gets split against Greene County By Troy Hyde Newton Daily News BAXTER — Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s girls basketball team needed only three games to match last year’s win total. The Raiders broke open a halftime tie with a big second half and won their second game of the season after a 4024 home triumph over Greene County during Heart of Iowa Conference play. CMB and Greene County were tied at 14-all at the break, but the Raiders dominated the second half at both ends. CMB outscored the Rams 26-10 in the final two quarters. Junior Brianda Bane led the Raiders with 14 points and three rebounds, while senior Emily Coughenour added 10 points and four steals. Junior Mikayla Eslinger scored eight points and grabbed 12 boards, while senior Kathleen Baldwin had eight points and eight boards. CMB (2-1 overall, 1-1 in the HOIC) hit 6-of-14 from 3-point range and was 14-of24 from the foul line. Greene

County (0-3, 0-2) did not make a trey and only hit six free throws in the loss. The Raiders turned it over only 12 times. The Raiders went 2-19 last year. They did not win their first game until Dec. 5 and the second and final win came on Jan. 19. BOYS Greene County 94, CMB 47 Trey Tucker scored 25 points and Wade Adcock finished with 22 points as Greene County improved to 2-0 on the season with a road win over the Raiders on Tuesday night. CMB trailed its season opener 66-27 at halftime. Statistics for CMB were not available at press time.

Mustangs sweep rival Roland-Story at home By Troy Hyde Newton Daily News MONROE — Prairie City-Monroe’s girls basketball team showed off its depth on Tuesday night against Roland-Story. In the first two wins of the season, the Mustangs were led at the offensive end of the floor by guards Kayla Jennings and Regan Freland. So when Roland-Story decided to take away those two options, other Mustangs had to step up. Fortunately for PCM, that’s exactly what happened as senior Katie Vande Wall scored a season-high 17 points, and seniors Kaylee Townsend and Rachel Stafford scored 11 and 10, respectively, during a 52-30 home win. The Mustangs scored the first nine points of the game, led 15-3 after the first quarter

and a 28-7 halftime lead held up in the second half. “We look for matchup troubles,” PCM coach Jeff Lindsay said. “They wanted to limit Kayla (Jennings) and Regan (Freland), and the other girls stepped and found the mismatches.” Jennings was held to a season-low five points, but she also had four rebounds, four assists and three steals. Freland scored seven points, dished out three assists and had three steals, while Stafford


Van Ryswyk

and Townsend each had four boards and Vande Wall and Townsend each had two steals. Stafford finished with two assists. The Mustangs (3-0 overall, 2-0 in the HOIC) finished with 14 steals and won the game despite turning it over 16 times. Roland-Story dropped to 1-1 overall and 0-2 in the HOIC. BOYS PCM 59, Roland-Story 49 Junior Jackson Thomas scored a career-high 20 points,

the Mustangs buried six 3-pointers and rallied past a Norse team that led 14-11 after one quarter. Thomas hit three 3-pointers in the victory, while junior Elijah Sperfslage drained two treys and scored 10 points. The Mustangs were balanced offensively as sophomore Andrew Van Ryswyk and freshman Derek Brown each scored six points, while senior Mark Bruxvoort and junior Noah Lanphier each put in five points. PCM (1-0 overall, 1-0 in the HOIC) led 25-20 at halftime and then outscored the Norse (1-1, 0-1) 34-29 in the second half.

C-M Continued from Page 1B pounds put Colfax-Mingo up 15-12 early against Woodward-Granger. The Tigerhawks rallied two different times in the dual to win by eight points. Colfax-Mingo trailed 22-15 before a win by fall by senior Cameron Warner and an injury default win by John Bowman put the Tigerhawks up 2722. Trailing 34-27, Colfax-Mingo needed wins in two of the final three matches to win its opener. The Tigerhawks did one better when junior Colton Lourens, senior Ben Mead and Barnes all won. “A lot of people pulled through when we needed them and everyone worked hard tonight,” Teed said. Lourens won his match at 220 pounds by fall within the first minute of the bout, Mead rallied from an early deficit to win by fall in the third period at 285 and then Barnes won a 6-4 decision at 106 after falling behind early, too. “I pride our team on conditioning. We work hard. I knew we had six minutes in us,” Hume said. “We just had to show it. We were lucky enough to get some wins that maybe on paper we shouldn’t have won, but that’s wrestling. That’s how it goes sometimes.” Warner trailed his match 7-2 at 160 before rallying for a key pin. “That was a huge win for us,” Teed said. “There were a lot of matches like that tonight. Even if we got down, we didn’t quit and staying in the match paid off.” The Tigerhawks did not match up well with Pleasantville, which start the season with four ranked wrestlers. The Trojans won seven of the nine contested matches but handed the Tigerhawks five forfeit wins. The key match for Colfax-Mingo (2-0) ended in a loss, but Lourens

went the distance against Class 1A No. 8 Chaz Clark (195) at 220. The end result for Lourens was a 7-1 loss, but the Trojans needed bonus points to have a chance to win the dual. “Colton did a very good job. He helped us win the dual by going six minutes against a ranked state placewinner,” Hume said. “He made a few mistakes but was in that match the entire time.” Against Pleasantville, Teed claimed

a 14-1 major decision win at 138 and sophomore Jordan Lescaleet won his match at 152 by fall. The rest of the wins were by forfeit, including Cauy Fitch (113), Barnes (106), Nathan Evans (145), Mollie Greve (120) and Kyla Lampman (126). It was the first career varsity wins for Evans, Greve and Lampman. “Pleasantville is a very good team. We didn’t match up well with them,” Hume said. “It paid to have a full lineup. They beat us on the mat, but you

can’t fault us for having more guys.” Bowman and Cyden Fitch earned their first career varsity wins in the triumph over Woodward-Granger.

NEW SHARON — The Colfax-Mingo girls basketball team got off to a slow start against North Mahaska on Tuesday night and never recovered. Sophomore Payton Rhone hit four 3-pointers and scored a season-high 14 points, and senior Dakota Hostetter grabbed 13 rebounds, but the Tigerhawks lost to North Mahaska 49-32 in South Iowa Cedar League action. Hostetter scored five points and had three steals, while senior Amy Russell scored three points, grabbed six rebounds and finished with three steals. The Tigerhawks trailed 14-7 after one quarter and the deficit grew to 12 at halftime. North Mahaska held Colfax-Mingo to three points in the third quarter. The Tigerhawks (0-2 overall, 0-1 in SICL action) outscored the Warhawks 15-11 in the fourth quarter, but it was too little too late. Kassidi Steel led North Mahaska (2-1, 2-0) with 15 points, while Cheyenne Shaw scored seven. Three other Warhawk players tallied six points apiece.

BOYS North Mahaska 63, Colfax-Mingo 52 Twelve first-half turnovers put the Tigerhawks behind the eight ball in their season opener against North Mahaska on Tuesday night. Colfax-Mingo trailed by as many as 15 points in the third quarter, rallied back to get within single digits two different times before the Warhawks hit several late free throws to put the game away in the final minutes. Junior Jarod Nichols got off to a fast start before an ankle injury forced him to leave the game in the second quarter. Nichols finished with six points and five rebounds in about 10 minutes of game time but did not return after the injury. His status in the near future is still unknown, according to Col-

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Ethan Happ had 24 points and 13 rebounds, zone-busting guard Bronson Koenig scored 20 points and No. 17 Wisconsin beat No. 22 Syracuse, 77-60, in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Koenig, the seasoned senior guard, was 6-of-9 from 3-point range, and the Badgers (6-2) shot 48 percent overall (11of-23) from behind the arc against the Orange’s 2-3 zone. Wisconsin led by as much as 17 in the second half before Syracuse (4-2) went on a 6-0 run capped by John Gillon’s layup with 11:25 left. Two Wisconsin turnovers in that span with Koenig on the bench gave Syracuse the opening. Coach Greg Gard inserted Koenig back in the game and the Badgers went on a 7-2 run to retake a 16-point lead with 9:24 left.

No. 5 Duke 78, Michigan State 69 DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Grayson Allen scored 24 points, Luke Kennard added 20 and Duke beat Michigan State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Amile Jefferson had 17 points and 13 rebounds while freshman Frank Jackson finished with 11 points and keyed a timely 11-0 run for the Blue Devils (7-1). Penn State 67, Georgia Tech 60

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Shep Garner’s confident if he’s not making shots, one of his teammates will. It’s why Penn State’s forward had no qualms — despite having the hot hand himself in the Nittany Lions’ 67-60 win over Georgia Tech on Tuesday — swinging the ball to Josh Reaves, who’s still working off some rust after a preseason leg injury forced him to miss the first five games. Reaves made good on Garner’s pass with Georgia Tech threatening. He pulled up on his sore left leg and sank his first 3-pointer of the season along with any hopes the Yellow Jackets had for a comeback. Garner didn’t let them down. He scored 17 points and Mike Watkins added 12 and grabbed 12 rebounds to help secure the win in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge game. Pittsburgh 73, Maryland 59 COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Pittsburgh was so darn good in the first half, coach Kevin Stallings found it easy to forgive his players’ misdeeds over the final 20 minutes. Jamel Artis scored 15 of his 22 points before halftime, and the Panthers held off previously unbeaten Maryland 7359 Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Colson’s 24 points lead unbeaten Notre Dame to win over Iowa SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame couldn’t pass, couldn’t hang on to the ball, couldn’t hold on to a 15-point lead and just about couldn’t miss from the free-throw line. The Fighting Irish were 30 of 33 in foul shooting with Bonzie Colson making all 12 of his attempts, Steve Vasturia made all seven of his and Notre Dame beat Iowa 92-78 Tuesday night in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. “The foul line is an unbelievable weapon for us,” Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. “We get there and then we capitalize when we get there.” Colson finished with a season-high 24 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for his fourth straight double-double and Vasturia tied a career high with 22 points and grabbed a career-high nine rebounds to pace the Irish (7-0). Colson said he focused on rebounding. “I just try to play the game and just play like it’s my last game and just continue to battle with the bigs and continue to rebound and if I see the scoring opportunity just go to work in that department,” he said. Iowa (3-4) had its largest lead of the second half at 52-50 when Notre Dame hit four straight shots and Iowa missed four straight during a 10-0 run capped by Vasturia driving through the lane for a layup to give Notre Dame a 60-52 lead. The Irish extended the lead to 79-63 on a jumper by Farrell. Freshman Jordan Bohanon, whose previous season-high was six points, finished with a team-high 23 points in his first start. Jok, coming off a career-high 42 points against

Memphis, struggled throughout, making 4 of 20 shots for 15 points. “They were really locked into him,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. “Those ones he missed tonight were the same ones he made against Memphis. I give Notre Dame credit for that.” Jok blamed himself, saying he didn’t do his part. “There’s no way I should go 4-20 on a given night against anybody. But like I said it was one of those games. I’ve still got to find a way to make shots, and I didn’t do it tonight.”

Big Picture Iowa: The Hawkeyes were without freshman forward Tyler Cook, their second-leading scorer at 13.7 points game, who underwent surgery earlier Tuesday because of a fractured his right index finger and is expected to be out about three weeks. After two straight losses the Hawkeyes tried to shake things up with three new starters but continued to struggle against Power Five opponents. Notre Dame: The Fighting Irish, who entered the game averaging 7.5 turnovers and

18.5 assists, had four turnovers in less than six minutes, 11 in the first half. The Irish finished with 14 turnovers and just 11 assists, but won comfortably to improve to 7-0 for the third time in 17 seasons under Mike Brey. The Irish also won their first seven in 2001 and got off to their best start at 8-0 in 2010. Poll Implications The Irish, who were two spots outside the poll on Monday, should have a chance of becoming ranked after their third win against a Power Five opponent.

Lynnville-Sully teams power past visiting BGM squads By Jocelyn Sheets Newton Daily News SULLY — Lynnville-Sully’s girls and boys posted overpowering victories at home Tuesday against South Iowa Cedar League opponent BGM. The Hawk girls used a 21-2 first-quarter run to overwhelm the BGM Bear girls, 57-13, to go 2-0 on the season. Lynnville-Sully boys opened their 2016-17 season with a commanding 66-20 victory against the Bear boys. “It was a good start to the season,” Hawk boys’ head coach Nick Harthoorn said. “The guys played real hard defensively. The boys did a nice job of sharing the ball offensively. We have to do a better job on the boards, but there were a lot of positives about tonight.” The Hawk boys shot 52 percent, 27-of-52, from the field overall. Lynnville-Sully dished out 22 assists as a team. Lynnville-Sully led only by



six points, 17-11, at the end of the first quarter. The Hawk defense clamped down allowing four points to the Bears in the second quarter while pouring in 22 points at the offensive end. Leading 39-15 at halftime, the Hawk boys extended their lead on a 12-5 surge in the third quarter. Lynnville-Sully shutout the Bears in the final eight minutes in a 15-0 run to the end. Junior Brevin Hansen fired in 15 points to lead the Hawks. Senior Tyler Van Zante and sophomore Tyson Vander Linden each added 10 points. Junior Jesse Van Wyk

led the Hawks in assists with eight and rebounds with six. Junior Corey McCoy made five of the Hawks’ 13 steals in the game. McCoy, senior John Trettin and sophomore Rylan James grabbed five rebounds apiece. Defensively, the Hawk boys held the Bear boys to a cold 22.5 percent, 9-of-40, from the field. The Bears had 19 turnovers, and they went 2-of-10 at the free-throw line. Eric Weiss scored 13 points for BGM. Lynnville-Sully’s girls had the strong start to put them on the road to their big win. The Hawks were up 37-9 by halftime and their lead ballooned to 52-13 by the end of the third quarter. “I really like the girls defensive efforts tonight.” Hawk girls’ head coach Jerry Hulsing said. “I thought we frustrated BGM by having a hand in the passing lanes. We did a good job of rebounding tonight.” The Hawk girls helped force


Continued from Page 1B Sturtz was 10-of-10 at the free-throw line as he scored a game-high 33 points for the Cardinals. Sturtz is tied for fifth on the Newton single-game scoring list with his performance in Tuesday’s game, which concluded Newton Winter Classic. The Winter Classic night of action began with Newton taking on Boone in wrestling. All three levels of boys’ basketball played with freshman and junior varsity games in the lower gym at NHS. “It was a grinder for us. We had foul trouble early which got Grayson (Graham) and Grant (Garvis) in the game early without much varsity experience. It was a feeling-out period for them, but we came together to do what we had to do to win,” Newton senior guard Connor Gholson said. Gholson fired in 26 points, hitting four 3-pointers for the Cardinals. One of the biggest shots he made in the game came at the end of the first half. Newton had jumped out to an 8-0 lead, but Boone rallied to trail 16-13 after one quarter of play. The game became an ebband-flow affair with Newton staying just ahead of Boone. Gholson and Ventling had

back-to-back baskets to make it 27-20 with 2:13 left in the second quarter. Lewis and 6-foot-10 Gabriel Krafcisin had back-to-back 3-point plays for Boone to make it 27-26. Krafcisin hit one of two free throws tying the game with 25 seconds on the clock. Newton struggled from the line in the first half, downing 3-of-8 free throw attempts. Ventling missed two foul shots, but the Cardinals came up with the ball for a final shot. Gholson stepped back and drained a 33-foot shot at the buzzer to put Newton up 30-27 at the break. “Isn’t it fun having seniors who have been through this and

hit big shots like that?” Liley said. “Boone is a good basketball team, which only lost one game during its summer action. They are big and will do a lot of damage in Class 3A. The Krafcisin kid was impressive and caused some problems for us.” Gholson said at halftime the Cardinals talked about hitting free throws and staying out of foul trouble. He said he thought they rebounded the ball better in the second half. Taking the bounce they got at halftime from Gholson’s trey, the Cardinals came out and scored the first four points of the third quarter. Maher had a putback bucket and Gholson hit two free throws.


Continued from Page 1B “I just let my mind clear, and went out and did what I do best. This was a good step one for us as a team. We did what we were supposed to do — win. We have things we need to improve on, but I think we’ll get better as the season progresses,” Hull said. Boone’s first team points came when Jame Runestad pinned Newton freshman Noah Cook in the 132-pound match. After Caves’ win, Boone had back-to-back victories to make it a one-point Cardinal lead, 15-14. Junior Mason Hulse, who is ranked No. 9 in the preseason Class 3A 145-pound poll, posted a 17-1 technical fall in the second period over Newton sophomore Coltin Whitten. At 152, Newton senior Jon Lawton lost 3-0 to Boone’s Jimmy Boustead. Wrestling up a weight class at 160, Newton senior Logan Zibert pushed out to a 14-0 lead after two periods. Boone’s Anthony Keller did not fold. “It was the first match and I was trying to figure out where I stood. He wasn’t doing much so, I got offensive and scored points,” Zibert said after winning 197. “Then he caught me in

the third quarter, and I was fighting for my life. Once I got back on top, I slowed down and got the win.” Keller used a takedown to score his first points of the match in the third period. He had Zibert on his back twice, scoring five points with near falls. Zibert bridged out and off his back. Zibert reversed Keller and earned three more points with a near fall. “I’m pretty excited to see where this season goes,” Zibert said. “I feel I’m a better wrestler than I used to be and I’ve put on some muscle.” Newton junior Blayden Rhone needed a little more than a minute to pin Boone’s Vince Castillo in the 182-pound match. New-

ton had a 37-14 lead when Boone’s Jacob Melton threw Newton senior Caleb Kite to his back with a headlock to get a pin in 24 seconds. Newton had forfeit wins at 170 and 195 by seniors Tanner Petro and Brady Smith, respectively. Senior Alex Miller took on Boone’s Jordan Angle in the 285-pound bout. The two heavyweights were active with the score tied 6-6 after one quarter. Angle took an 8-6 lead in the second period, but Miller made the switch again to tie it up. Miller scored two points on a near fall. With 36 seconds remaining in the second period. Miller finished the match with a pin of An-

30 Bear turnovers and scored 19 points off turnovers. BGM shot 22 percent, 6-of-27, from the field. Lynnville-Sully connected on 24-of-53 from the field for 45 percent and had 10 turnovers. “On offense, we passed the ball well being able to get the ball into the middle of their zone, and then finding the open girls,” Hulsing said. Senior Brenna Lanser scored 14 points, handed out six assists, grabbed six rebounds and made four steals for Lynnville-Sully. Sophomore Carson Fisk tossed in 12 points, came up with five steals and handled five rebounds. Junior Jataya Meyer hit two of the teams four 3-pt field goals on her way to 10 points. The Hawks had 29 rebounds with junior Mariah Voss and senior Jelissa Rozendaal each had five rebounds. Aimee Hochstellar led the Bears with five points. Lyla Kriegel had four points. The Lynnville-Sully girls

are 2-0 overall and in SICL action. The Lynnville-Sully boys are 1-0 in both. The Hawk teams have a SICL doubleheader against HLV starting at 6 p.m. Friday in Sully.

In between 3-pointers by Boone’s Trevor Van Pelt and Lewis, Sturtz buried a 3-pointer. Newton went on a six-point run for a 43-33 lead with 4:17 on the third-quarter clock. Boone wasn’t going away as the Toreadors hit three 3-pointers and had two baskets inside by Krafcisin in a surge to make it a two-point game. Sturtz drove the lane to score with 4.4 seconds left in the third quarter to put Newton up 54-50. Gholson drilled a three to open the fourth quarter then downed two foul shots, lifting the Cardinals to a 59-52 lead with 6:09 left. Sturtz would score the final 16 points of the game for the Cardinals. Newton led 69-60 at the 2:11 mark. Down the stretch, senior Trey Vanderlaan, Gholson and Sturtz pulled key defensive rebounds. “This was Game 1 and you’re going to make mistakes in Game 1. We’ve got some things we can see on video, critique and get better. We’re getting a chance to learn through a win instead of a loss,” Liley said. Newton ended up cashing in on 17-of-23 free throw attempts while Boone went 16of-20 at the line. Boone shot 46 percent, 23-of-50, from the field for the game. Newton finished at 41 percent, 26-of-64. The Cardinals held a 2926 rebounding edge over the

Toreadors. Newton had one turnover to Boone’s eight. Lewis led the Toreadors with 19 points followed by Krafcisin with 18 points. Van Pelt added 15 points. Gholson pulled down eight rebounds and had two of the team’s three steals. Ventling had seven rebounds while Sturtz and Maher each had six rebounds. Maher dished out four assists.

gle to put Newton up 43-20. Boone forfeited the final match of the dual with Newton sophomore Blake Cockerton getting the win at 113. Both teams were open at the 106-pound division. “Logan Zibert and Ross Hull wrestled good matches. Alex Miller did as well. It was good seeing the offensive output Alex had tonight compared to last year,” Swedenhjelm said. “It shows the work he has done in the wrestling room.” Newton won two of the three junior varsity matches against Boone. Sophomore Joe Carolus pinned Wade Penick at 126 pounds and senior Skyler Tool earned an 8-4 decision over Wyatt Oppedahl at 132. At 138, Newton sophomore Ethan Braaksma lost 7-4 to Boone’s Kaden Zanoni. Swedenhjelm said he told the Cardinal wrestlers they would have to wrestle a lot better come district time so they have work to do. Newton wrestles against Albia in non-conference action and Little Hawkeye Conference Indianola at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in Indianola. On Saturday, Newton hosts the Cardinal Classic starting at 10 a.m. at NHS.

Briggs finished second and Maharry was fourth in the 100 breaststroke. Adam Hunter placed third in the 200 free style race. Nedder place third in the 100 freestyle and the 100 backstroke events. “Both Carter and Paul had solid races. We need to work on turns and race execution,” Patterson said. Izaak Miller and Parker Sherwood, both freshmen, swam their first high school 200 individual medley races Tuesday. Meyer, another freshman, won the junior varsity 50 freestyle, while senior Clay Trotter won the varsity 50 freestyle.   “Clay Trotter is a super competitor, and it’s fun to watch that fierce desire to win come out at the meets,” Patterson said. Patterson said all of the guys on the team want to swim even faster, which is what she likes to see. “Right now, it’s a matter of understanding how being fierce in practice and working hard translates into the type of meet performance they want. We can’t have mediocre practice efforts and swim big at the meets. It just doesn’t happen that way. We will get there,” Patterson said. NCMP hosts its annual invitational at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Newton YMCA.

Don’t be in a rush to categorize where you’re at with people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Keeping yourself safe from harm includes controlling the distance between you

and people you love or could possibly love. It might help to think of yourself as a scientist, collecting data. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re willing to fall in love with an idea, and you’re just as willing to step back and say, “This is not the right choice for me.” From this position you’ll make stellar decisions that favor your long-term happiness. CANCER (June 22-July 22). To make an emotional investment today will be riskier than other kinds of investing. It will also be more difficult to recover from if it doesn’t go right.
