After 23 years, Pappy’s Antique Mall will be closing its doors this Sunday. Pappy’s manager Su-

sie Jones will be retiring. A previously reported potential sale of the antique mall fell through, which meant that after 23 years Jones will be closing the doors. “I loved the people here, from the customers to the vendors who have been a part of Pappy’s since we opened 23 years ago,” Jones said.

She has many memories of the store, but she will always remember meeting Ol’ Lonely, the Maytag repair man Gordon Jump, when he once visited the store. “He was so nice. I will also remember being the only one scheduled to PAPPY’S See Page 5A

A Newton man was killed in a crash on Interstate Highway 80 near Grinnell Friday, Dec. 6. According to the Iowa State Patrol, the incident is still under investigation. A 2003 Chrysler Sebring driven by Justin Vaske, 30, of Newton was traveling eastbound on I-80 near the 191-mile marker shortly before 7 a.m. when it drifted onto the right shoulder and into a semi-trailer that was legally parked on the shoulder after experiencing mechanical problems. The driver of the truck, owned by Brown Logistics of Des Moines, was Ronald Miller, 33, of Madrid. According to the initial incident report filed by Trooper Paul Nowak of the ISP, Vaske was not wearing a seatbelt. He was killed in the crash. Miller did not report any injuries. Vaske’s body was transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny for an autopsy. Nowak’s report indicates numerous agencies from the surrounding area responded to the crash scene.

If Monday night was any indication, there a number of youth in Newton who are proud to be Americans. Three fourth-grade students and three fifth-grade students from both Aurora Heights and Woodrow Wilson Elementary Schools were recently awarded with a certificate and cash prize for an essay contest put on Newton VFW Post 1655 Ladies’ Auxiliary. The theme for the fourth-grade students was “My favorite freedom is?” and the fifth-graders tackled the theme of “How do we show our pride in America?” Emily Russell, a fourth-grade student at Woodrow Wilson, won first place for her grade and her essay reads: “(My favorite freedom is) the Emancipation Proclamation because it set the slaves free. I was inspired by

the book ‘Henry’s Freedom Box.’ Henry went to work one day and when he came home his family, including the baby, had been taken. Henry shipped himself into a box to the north where he wouldn’t be a slave. “He was later freed by Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation. I’m thankful that I don’t live in world with slavery, because I wouldn’t be allowed to hang out with some of my best friends like Taliyah and Camille.” As the first place winner, Emily was rewarded with a $20, a certificate and her essay was entered into the district essay contest.

TPI employees to vote by secret ballot today, Wednesday on Union Organization By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer

“Their main concerns were in regards to safety, attendance policy, and how it was arbitrary that one individual determined employee raises,” IBEW Membership Development Coordinator TPI See Page 5A

Officials seek sanctuary for Iowa alligator WATERLOO (AP) — Animal control officials in the Iowa city of Waterloo are seeking a new home for a baby alligator named Chompey. A resident of the eastern Iowa city of about 68,000 people bought the alligator after spotting an online advertisement, but he later learned state law does not allow people to keep alligators or other exotic animals, The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported Monday. The resident turned the gator in to animal control officials, who kept the creature in an aquarium while figuring out what to do with it. Then the gator started snapping and making noises. “He was really kind of cute, but he was also kind of naughty,” said Maria Tiller, Waterloo’s code enforcement forewoman. “I didn’t

animal’s being held in quarantine while staff seek a sanctuary in a warmer climate for Chompey. Josh Colvin, who heads animal control for Animal Rescue of Iowa, said alligator reports have dropped since the state ban on exotic animals was approved in 2007. Still, he said, people occasionally drop off gators. “They just don’t realize they are going to grow up and get big,” Colvin said. “The unfortunate part is that people don’t think it through, and then animal control has to pick up the pieces.” Iowa law also bans residents from owning lions, tigers, cougars, leopards, ocelots, elephants, bears, monkeys, crocodiles and some snakes. Exceptions can be made for zoos, circuses, fairs, animal shelters, veterinarians and researchers.

Teen arrested for possession of burglary tools By Daily News Staff A Newton teen has been charged in connection with a reported attempted burglary Saturday at Newton Storage Center. Officer Chris Wing of the Newton Police Department states he was called to the storage facility shortly before 8:30 p.m. to investigate a possible break-in. Upon his arrival, he says he observed two individuals exit a camper in a fenced-in area that had been broken into. “They fled on foot to the west with one wearing a dark-colored backpack,” he stated in his affidavit. “The subjects were seen crossing East 12th Street and 10 minutes later, the defendant was seen coming from behind the residence at 1012 S. Fifth Ave. E., after knocking on the door and asking to use the phone.” The “defendant” was identified as Coady Allen Martin, 17, of Newton. Wing said Martin claimed his girlfriend

Page 3A

lived in the home, but the resident said she had no idea who he was. “A black backpack was found by the porch of the back door that the defendant came from, and contained rolled up copper wire and a flathead screwdriver that had a shiny edge on it consistent with prying,” Wing stated in his affidavit. “The defendant was also in possession of a silver LED flashlight, which was consistent with the initial report.” The original caller who observed the break-in at Newton Storage Center said he heard a fence rattling, saw two flashlights and heard something breaking. Martin was taken into custody and refused to answer any questions. He charged with possession of burglary tools, an aggravated misdemeanor, and released to his mother. The investigation is still ongoing. Those with information are encouraged to call the police department at (641) 791-0850 or the sheriff ’s office at (641) 791-0402.

Joe Heller Cartoon

Des Moines’ claims to Iowa Speedway are underhanded To the editor: Recently we have had great news about the Iowa Speedway. The new possibilities to enrich our community with visitors, jobs etc is very exciting. However in the past few weeks, I have seen several TV ads on the major networks, showing our Speedway advertized as a tourism attraction for the city  of Des Moines.   This upsets me, as this is our (Newton and Jasper county) attraction. Our community has been behind this speedway for a long time. It seems very unfair to have Des Moines feature this with no mention of it being in Newton on the ad. After all, Des Moines residents have many attractions in their own city and county. This seems underhanded to me. Ann White Newton

Capitol Commentary

Funding the nation’s common defense is Congress’ job Among the objectives named in the preamble of the Constitution, the Founders specified one of the primary responsibilities of governance for the newly formed republic is to provide for the nation’s common defense.  For more than two centuries, the United States of America has pro- By Chuck Grassley tected its borders, United States Senator people, international commerce and national security backed up by a civilian controlled military funded by the taxpaying public. Our system of checks and balances works to keep the military under civilian control.  The Constitution specifies the president serves as commander in chief.  The people’s branch appropriates and the executive branch spends money to provide for the Armed Services.  This dual authority works to ensure the military serves, not subverts, we the people. Since our nation’s founding, policymakers have debated the merits of the size, scope and strategy of the nation’s military. Between the White House and Congress, presidents and lawmakers have used the strength of the U.S. military to maintain peace, protect and defend the blessings of free-

dom and provide for national security. Generations of Americans owe a debt of gratitude to those who have served in the Armed Forces, putting their lives on the line and often separating from their families to serve, defend and protect. Although the U.S. military serves a critical role in upholding the nation’s common defense, lawmakers should not issue blank checks to the Department of Defense.  In fact, my longstanding crusade to protect the taxpaying public has exposed serious financial mismanagement at the Pentagon that undermines military readiness and exposes cultural, systemic flaws that weaken this critical institution of the federal government. Protecting the taxpaying public and providing for the nation’s common defense are not mutually exclusive.  Too many people in Washington think that throwing more money at something will solve the world’s problems.  Nothing could be further from the truth. As Congress works to dial back the spending spigot that has created a $17 trillion national debt, I am working to hold the line on overspending.  As keepers of the public purse, lawmakers need to demand more accountability for each tax dollar, including defense spending. Although no one thinks the across-the-board sequester was the smartest way to hold spending to the level Congress agreed to live under,

I reject the notion that there are no parts of the federal budget that can be cut and the only solution is to ditch the spending caps that have forced Uncle Sam to borrow and spend less of taxpayers’ money. For those who ballyhoo that the sky will fall if the Pentagon’s budget is trimmed further, I would direct their attention to the apparent shenanigans of the Defense Finance and Accounting Service.  What’s worse, the independent watchdog at the Pentagon may have schemed with DFAS and turned a blind eye to problems with the agency’s financial statements to snow policymakers and the public. One of my earliest crusades against government waste started at the Pentagon.  At that time, a Pentagon maverick reported serious fiscal mismanagement and an astonishing waste of tax dollars.  Remember the $500 hammers and $7,600 coffee pots?  It’s been a few years since I drove my orange Chevette to the Pentagon from Capitol Hill to track down answers about bloated defense budgets.  Thanks to the courage and pursuit of the truth from a civil servant at the Defense Department, we succeeded in exposing fantasy financials that front-loaded the budget with massive, unaffordable programs.  At the time, the Pentagon was flushing tax money down the drain with $700 toilet seats.  His testimony at a joint congressional hearing helped lead to a freeze on the

defense budget build-up at the height of the farm crisis in the mid-80s, sparing taxpayers billions of dollars.  Ever since, I’ve championed all means necessary through oversight and legislation to hold the Pentagon accountable for the money it spends to uphold the nation’s common defense. As Abe Lincoln discovered during the Civil War, there’s no shortage of profiteers who troll federal spending for financial gain.  Or in the case of the DFAS, allegedly fudging the numbers to mislead policymakers and protect its funding stream.  It takes a tireless commitment to prevent the taxpaying public from getting fleeced. Sometimes it feels like paddling upstream,especially as the federal government has a record of using antiquated systems to track spending and prevent fraud. Rooting out waste, fraud and abuse is hard enough even with proper auditing tools.  So if integrity at the auditing shop in the Inspector General’s office is up for grabs, policymakers would have better luck finding a needle in an Iowa haystack than getting accurate numbers to make the right spending decisions.  If this episode is a reflection of widespread “financial delusions” the DFAS conducts throughout the Pentagon, then Congress needs to tighten, not loosen, the purse strings until the Department of Defense can rightits fiscal ship.

Usual Eccentric

Dolphins aren’t mammal enough for me I’d like to share a sentiment with you that recently led to an argument between my wife and I. The argument occurred during a cinematic documentary depicting ocean life, as all petty spousal spats usually do. I know a lot of people love them, but I don’t like dolphins. That’s a By Will E Sanders pretty heavy cross Creators Syndicate to bear. It’s more than I just don’t like dolphins — I don’t trust dolphins. Don’t be fooled by a dolphin’s quirky, devil-may-care attitude. I assure you beyond all biological doubt that dolphins only act nice when cameras or people are around. Now most of humanity agrees that dolphins are smart, but I beg to differ. If dolphins are so smart why haven’t they grown legs, crawled out of the ocean and walked upright? Living in the ocean isn’t smart. Who wants to live in the ocean? What a terrible place to live. If you believe in evolution, then dolphins are quite literally the stupidest, so-called “mammal” there is. It’s a great thing that dolphins haven’t sprouted legs, you know.

Dan Goetz Publisher Mandi Lamb Associate Editor

The dolphins would have enslaved us by now. My major gripe about dolphins is their classification that they are mammals. I’m not here to say what is or is not a mammal. I’m not a maniac. But when I think of mammals I tend to think of certain qualifications. When I look around the world’s wildlife, various characteristics of mammals come to mind. Dolphins and humans have a good number of similarities, I’ll give you that. We give birth the same way, and dolphins and humans are the only pimps in all of the animal kingdom that have sex for pleasure. Humans and dolphins even share comparable social structures. Humans stupid enough to get caught are sent to prison. Dolphins stupid enough to get caught go to SeaWorld. But when I think of mammals — and I’ll tell you what I vehemently argued with my wife — dolphins don’t even come to mind, ditto whales. I think of dolphins as fish. Dolphins have less in common with mammals and more in common with fish. Don’t believe me? Water. Do you know of any fish that don’t live in water? Living in the ocean is unbecoming of mammals in my staunch opinion. All right now riddle me this: How

many humans do you know that have fins? That’s essentially the only prerequisites of a fish. Does it live in the water and does it have fins. When I think of mammals, I think of hair. A dolphin doesn’t have hair. A dolphin doesn’t need hair. What does a dolphin need with hair? Still don’t see it my way? Most mammals I know have nipples. Dolphins don’t have nipples, per se. The nipple of a dolphin is hidden underneath slits in the underbelly. This very moment dolphins are down in the briny deep swimming around with hidden nipples and people keep insisting they are mammals. Perhaps the most drastic difference is a dolphin has a blowhole it uses to breathe through. A blowhole, people! If I came across a human being with a gross, shotgun-slug-sized hole in their back I would burn it with fire for the sake of humanity and suffer the consequences. Pretend you had no idea what a dolphin was, and I explained one to you. You wouldn’t be led to believe the thing was a mammal. In fact, you would be liable to think I was describing an alien from outer space. “Well, a dolphin is devoid of all body hair, armed with inconspicuous nipples and has a large hole in the

middle of its back to breathe out of,” I would say. “Oh, and they use this weird sonar ability they inherently possess to find and kill their prey.” Sorry, that’s not mammal material in my mind. This is why I plan on starting a petition to get dolphins declassified as a member of the mammal species. At the end of the day, you really only have to ask yourself one question: If it looks like a fish, smells like a fish and swims like a fish, then isn’t it a fish?

Overwhelmed? It may be inevitable, considering we all emerge from nothingness into infinity, neither of which we can comprehend. As the moon leaves the spiritual realm of Pisces for highly motivated Aries, nothing good comes of dwelling on the infinite possibilities. Pick up a piece of work, finish it, and then pick up another. One thing at a time. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 10). This year marks your leap into even greater autonomy. You’ll bolster your resources and become well stocked with everything from money to emotional sustenance so that truly you will come to relationships from a place of generosity and abundance instead of need. January and July are your windfall months. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 14, 33, 28 and 1. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You usually find that tedious work is made bearable by good company, but today it’s made downright enjoyable.

Chalk it up to a shared sense of humor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Experiencing something radically new will have the effect of slowing down time. Each second will seem to require a heightened level of attention from you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Stop and fix your contact list. It’s easier to feel in control of your life if you feel in control of your time, and feeling in control of your time is closely related to the organization of your life systems.

Hold to your purpose while watching the conditions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Win or lose, you’re in the game to master it or at least to improve. If you learn from your mistakes, you eventually will come around to being glad you made them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Guided by the messenger planet, you know more than anyone that news travels fast -- and outrageous news, faster. Whether the news is true or false has no bearing on its traveling speed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A prize hangs in the balance. Who will go home with it? The one who wants it the most. Before you make your first effort, ask yourself how badly you really want it, and go from there.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). “Later” is a myth. There won’t be any more time later than there is now. So don’t wait for later to do the things that make you happy or to do the things that are necessary to make your dreams come true.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your purpose is like the rudder of a ship. It helps to steer you through calm seas, but in bad weather, you still may be at the mercy of the storm.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want home upgrades, and a better shower nozzle or new curtains isn’t going to cut it. You can focus on relationships, or you can focus

“I was real excited,” is how Emily said she felt after winning. She also has her sights set on entering the contest as a fifth-grader next year and plans on shopping with her winnings. Wyatt Hall, also from Woodrow Wilson, won second place, and Aurora Heights student Ben Roehler won third. The themes for the essays are created by the national branch of the Ladies’ Auxiliary and it changes every year. If a student wins his or her local contest, they move on to districts, and if they continue to win they move onto state and finally nationals. Woodrow Wilson student Meg Callaghan won the contest for fifth-graders and her essay reads: “There are many different ways to show our American pride. One way is singing the National Anthem. Whether at a sporting event or just celebrating a patriotic holiday we sing the National Anthem. From dusk until dawn, the only light allowed us to see the ‘broad stripes and bright stars’ were from the rockets and bombs. “Tears well up in my eyes when I hear the words ‘our flag was still there’ and I can’t hold back my American Pride as I envision the flag waving over the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave.’” Meg also won $20 and her contest will also be entered into the district finals. Garrett Nook, Woodrow Wilson, won second place and Aurora Heights student Olivia Van Fosson-Roelfs came in third. Chairwoman of Newton Post 1655 Ladies’ Auxiliary Elsie Graham said she has been part of this contest for the past 13 years and enjoys doing it year in and year out. “The children, they are just like sponges at this age,” Graham said. “They absorb all this information and they read and they seem to love doing this sort of thing. The ideas they come up with for each year it amazes me, it just blows me away … It really is quite an important event for these children.”

on the aesthetics. Either way, both will improve, as these parts of your life are related. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to increase your power, and it all starts with honing your presence. Note that powerful people don’t hurry or seem busy. Be deliberate, but don’t rush. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One way to get on your own side is to make a plan that has a chance of actually working. It’s a little much for you to expect yourself to accomplish a goal if there are no stakes involved and no one to hold you accountable. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In an attempt to make yourself feel better, you risk making yourself feel worse. Short-term pleasures are usually the culprit. Thinking long term will prevent you from making mistakes.

Single dad struggles to find more time to spend with son DEAR ABBY: I am a single 25-yearold man with a 15-month-old son. I didn’t plan on having any children, but my son is everything to me. His mother and I did not work out well living together. We had different priorities and personalities and could not comfortably coexist. I have no ill will toward “Andrea.” She’s a great person and a phenomenal mom. My dilemma is I constantly regret not working harder to stay with her. I see her new boyfriend with my son and it kills me. I see my son only on my two days off. I wish I could see him more than that, but the only way I could see it happening is if Andrea and I got back together. Everyone I know says we made the right choice for the three of us, but they may be biased toward my side of the situation. I’m afraid of not being there for my boy like my father wasn’t there for me when I was a kid. I don’t think 18 hours a week with my child will be enough to prevent him from feeling the same way I did. — TORN FATHER IN CONNECTICUT DEAR TORN: You have some serious thinking to do. Feeling as you do, that you didn’t try hard enough to save your relationship, discuss it with your ex and see how she feels about the possibility of a reconciliation. HOWEVER, while I admire your desire to be a good father, it would be unfair to Andrea to try to get back together only to spend more time with your son. Consider asking her how she’d feel about you having him one night during the week in addition to your days off. Because the breakup wasn’t acrimonious, she may welcome the idea and agree. DEAR ABBY: I live in a condo complex and am appalled at the disgusting mess some residents leave behind in the laundry room. It’s hard to fathom that people are unaware that they are expected to empty the lint screen after using the dryer. My husband says they just don’t care. Why should I have to empty it just so I can use the machine? People also leave the tops and insides of the machines dirty with lint, hair and what looks like mites. Don’t you agree that people should wipe the laundry area down if they’ve left a mess? — TIDY IN NORTHAMP-

TON, MASS. DEAR TIDY: Whether I agree is less important than whether the board of directors of your condominium association does. Bring this up at the next homeowners meeting and ask that some rules be set and a sign posted in the laundry room “reminding” those who use it to PLEASE be sure the machines are left clean when they are finished using them. I can’t guarantee this will eliminate the problem, but it may help. P.S. If you are correct about seeing mites in the laundry room, the manager should be informed so an exterminator can visit the complex and eradicate the infestation. DEAR ABBY: What’s the proper response when a woman tells you, “You’re a lucky woman to have such a good husband who loves you so much”? That phrase bothers me because I feel it is a slap in my face — like what am I, chopped liver? Am I not worthy of a wonderful marriage and family? It is usually said by women who are unfamiliar with our lives and the struggles we have both endured since we met each other. Do I say thank you? Smile? Ignore it? I would never tell another woman she is lucky to have her man because I feel it’s an insult. Am I overreacting? — HE’S LUCKY, TOO, IN COLORADO DEAR HE’S LUCKY, TOO: Yes. The women who acknowledge how lucky you are may be comparing the way your husband treats you in public to the way they are treated by their husbands. Instead of being defensive, smile and say, “I agree. We’re lucky to have EACH OTHER.”

Looking Back in Newton’s History From the files of the Daily News Compiled by the Newton Historic Preservation Commission 75 Years Ago This Week Dec. 9-15, 1938 The W. T. Petersen Hardware Store, for the past 15 years located at 106 First St. N., will move to the west side of the

square next year, going into the Robert McGregor building (113 W. Second St. N.).  Beginning Feb. 1, Woolworth’s will expand into Peterson’s east side location, thus doubling the size of their current store. A drive was under way in Newton to raise funds for Jewish refugees from Germany.  Business and community leaders in charge of Newton’s drive announced plans to ex-

pand the campaign to the other towns in the county. The Newton Women’s Club hosted a two week “slogan” campaign to encourage community activity and shopping in Newton.  The winning slogans for the week were:  “Home Trade Means Progress Made” (Clyde Cavitt, senior division) and “Stop, Shop, Save in Newton” ( James Wright, junior division).

World leaders, South Africans honor Mandela JOHANNESBURG (AP) — U.S. President Barack Obama exhorted the world today to embrace Nelson Mandela’s universal message of peace and justice, electrifying tens of thousands of rainlashed spectators and prompting a standing ovation by scores of heads of state in a South African stadium. In a speech that received thunderous applause, Obama urged people to apply the lessons of Mandela, who emerged from 27 years in prison under a racist regime, embraced his enemies when he finally walked to freedom and promoted forgiveness and reconciliation in South Africa. “We, too, must act on behalf of justice. We, too, must act on behalf of peace,” said Obama, who like Mandela became the first black president of his country. Obama said that when he was a student, Mandela “woke me up to my responsibilities — to others, and to myself — and set me on an improbable journey that finds me here today.” Police were expecting a crushing crowd at FNB stadium and had set up overflow points with big screen TVs, but the foul weather and public transportation problems kept many people away. The 95,000-capacity stadium was only twothirds full. Addressing the memorial service for Mandela, who died Thursday at age 95, Obama pointed out that “around the world today, men and women are still im-

prisoned for their political beliefs; and are still persecuted for what they look like, or how they worship, or who they love.” Among the nearly 100 heads of state and government were some from countries like Cuba that don’t hold fully democratic elections. On the way to the podium, Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro, underscoring a recent warming of relations between Cuba and the U.S. In contrast to the wild applause given to Obama, South African President Jacob Zuma was booed. Many South Africans are unhappy with Zuma because of state corruption scandals, though his ruling African National Congress, once led by Mandela, remains the front-runner ahead of elections next year. Some of the dozens of trains reserved to ferry people to the stadium in Soweto, a township which revolted in 1976 against white rule, were delayed due to a power failure. A Metrorail services spokeswoman, Lilian Mofokeng, said more than 30,000 mourners were successfully transported by train. The mood was celebratory. A dazzling mix of royalty, statesmen and celebrities was in attendance. “I would not have the life I have today if it was not for him,” said Matlhogonolo Mothoagae, a postgraduate marketing student who arrived hours before the stadium gates opened. “He was jailed so we could have our freedom.”

Monday, Auditor of State Mary Mosiman released a report on the City of Newton.  The city’s receipts totaled $20,988,028 for the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ended June 30, a 29.3-percent decrease from the prior year after adjusting for the exclusion of the Skiff Medical Center’s receipts. The significant decrease is due primarily to the $9,408,837 of bond proceeds received in the 2011-12 fiscal year.  The receipts included: • $6,809,388 in property tax, • $2,560,585

from tax increment financing, • $6,933,574 from charges for service, • $2,567,323 from operating grants, contributions and restricted interest, • $457,822 from capital grants, contributions and restricted interest, • $1,158,029 from local option sales tax, • $283,489 from hotel/motel tax, • $114,591 from franchise fees, • $62,847 from unrestricted interest on investments, and • $40,380 from other general receipts.  Disbursements for the year totaled $20,665,660, a

1.6-percent increase from the prior year after adjusting for the exclusion of the Skiff Medical Center’s disbursements. They included: • $6,353,118 for public safety, • $2,707,209 for public works, • $2,421,712 for community and economic development, and • $3,760,471 for business type activities.  A copy of the audit report is available for review in the Newton City Clerk’s Office, in the Office of Auditor of State and on the Auditor of State’s web site at http://auditor.iowa. gov/reports/13200469-B00F.pdf.

Iowan prayed while saving kids from fire DES MOINES (AP) — A northwest Iowa baby sitter who rescued seven children in her care from a van that filled with smoke and erupted into flames says God and a good Samaritan helped her through the ordeal. Tara Dekkers, 36, of Ireton, was driving the children, ages 1 through 6, in a 15-passenger van near Sioux Center on Friday. Dekkers runs a day care from her home and was on her way to pick up her own children from school. At some point, Dekkers heard a pop and the car began filling with smoke. “After I ran around the front of the van to open the door to the side to get the kids out, I saw flames” under the van, she said. “I just moved as fast I could to get everyone out.” “I give all the credit to God,”

she added. “He was the one who was with me. He was the one who made it all possible for me to get them all out.” Three older kids in booster seats were able to undo their seat belts. Dekkers said she helped them jump out of the van and she instructed them to run toward a nearby ditch. A good Samaritan in a pickup truck saw the commotion and pulled over to help. The three older kids were told to go to the pickup to stay warm. Dekkers said she then turned to the younger kids, who were still in car seats. “One at a time, I would untie them and get them out of the van and hand them off to the guy and he would run them to the truck,” she said. “I kept telling the kids, ‘We’re going to be OK,’” she added.

Newton REG general manager defends RFS to EPA at hearing in D.C.

Agriculture Briefs

USDA farm storage low-interest loans available

By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer Iowa’s politicians and members of the renewable fuel community are still fighting to change the EPA’s mind about its upcoming proposal on the Renewable Fuel Standard. Last Thursday, Bruce Lutes, general manager of Newton’s REG facility as well as REG’s Danville, Ill. plant, testified at an EPA hearing. REG produces biodiesel and its byproducts and employees 23 people at the Newton facility, which is capable of producing 30 million gallons of biodiesel annually. “In Newton, Iowa, the Maytag plant had just closed its doors and wiped out 2,500 direct jobs in a town of 14,000,” Lutes said at the hearing. “Most of the employees at REG Newton are former Maytag employees. Newton is starting to recover from this huge loss of jobs, but the ripple effects are still very present.” In addition to the 21 employees who work for REG that would be directly effected by a reduction in the RFS, Lutes explained how this would trickle down and effect other parts of the economy. He cited transportation companies — last year alone the Danville plant saw 14,000 truckers come through — suppliers of raw materials for production, chemical suppliers, welders, pipe-fitters, hose-makers, repair crews and numerous other positions. “These are real people, paying taxes, buying goods, sending their children to schools and buying houses,” Lutes said. Lutes went on to provide the EPA with an example that hit close to home for them, by comparing this situation to the recent federal government shutdown, which lasted more than two weeks in October. “With sequestration and the government shutdown, you and your government colleagues have gotten a small taste of what it means when your job isn’t there,” Lutes said. “You were told you couldn’t come to work, and some of you had to tell your colleagues that they would have to take days or weeks off without pay. “I have had to do that in my past and present careers,” he continued. “And, I have had to look people in the eye who had done their jobs well, and tell them they would no longer have a job to come back to.” Besides the substantial economic impact — according to Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds there more than 45,000 renewable fuel based jobs in Iowa alone — Lutes also spoke on what he felt were the positive benefits of biodiesel and other renewable fuels.

Submitted Photo Newton REG Plant General Manager Bruce Lutes testifying at a RFS hearing in Washington D.C. last Thursday. Lutes spoke about the positive impact biodiesel has on the economy and how much the proposed change would hurt the industry.

“Biodiesel has proven itself with increased production, increased efficiencies and increased environmental benefits,” Lutes said. “Biodiesel is not part of the problem. It is a part of the solution. So why would you want to slash these tremendous benefits, ignore the data, and ignore the facts?” Lutes also defended the current version of the RFS from its critics. “To those who say, ‘The RFS forces the government to pick winners and losers.’ I say, ‘This policy is a winner for jobs, for the economy, for energy security and most definitely for the environment.’” he said. “The only way you pick a loser here is by picking the numbers in this proposal. Let’s not take that step backward.” To close out his testimony, Lutes once again brought up the economic and environmental positives of biodiesel. “On behalf of the employees I have the honor of working with in Danville, Ill., and Newton, Iowa, and the tens of thousands of other Americans whose jobs are directly or indirectly supported by the biodiesel industry, I ask you to stick with a winner and increase the biomassbased diesel and overall advanced (Renewable Volume Obligation). Thank you for your time,” Lutes said.

DES MOINES (AP) — USDA Iowa Farm Service Agency Executive Director John R. Whitaker reminds farmers and ranchers that Farm Storage Facility Loans are available through FSA. The FSA offers low-interest loans to grain producers to build new or upgrade existing storage facilities and permanent drying and handling equipment. Loan opportunities include, but are not limited to: new conventional-type cribs or bins, oxygen-limiting and other upright silo-type structures, and flat-type storage structures designed for whole grain storage; perforated floors, safety equipment, quality improvement equipment, electrical equipment and concrete components considered essential for a fully functional storage facility; and remodeling existing storage facilities to increase storage capacity. Farm storage facility loans must be approved prior to site preparation, equipment purchase or construction and must be secured by a promissory note and security agreement. The new maximum principal loan amount is $500,000. Participants are required to provide a down payment of 15 percent, with CCC providing a loan for the remaining 85 percent of the net cost of the eligible storage facility and permanent drying and handling equipment. Additional security is required for poured-cement open-bunker silos, renewable biomass facilities, cold storage facilities, hay barns and for all loans exceeding $50,000. New loan terms of seven, 10 or 12 years are available depending on the amount of the loan. Interest rates for each term rate may be different and are based on the rate which CCC borrows from the Treasury Department. Contact your local FSA Office for more information on Farm Storage Facility Loans or visit the web at www.fsa.usda.gov/ia.

Tyson adds beef, chickens to animal welfare rules ALTOONA (AP) — Tyson has decided to expand its animal welfare requirements to its beef and chicken suppliers. The Des Moines Register says a Tyson manager told Iowa cattle producers on Monday that they must meet the requirements next year if they want to sell to Springdale, Ark.-based Tyson. In October 2012, Tyson announced it was requiring hog producers to humanely care for their animals and said at the time that it would expand the program to include chicken and cattle farms by January 2014. Tyson beef supply chain manager Lora Wright told about 50 cattle producers at the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association’s convention in Altoona that the treatment guidelines are being driven by Tyson customers that include McDonald’s and Whole Foods.

Just think about it — music is always going at athletic events, except maybe tennis and golf and the o c c a s i o n - By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News al croquet Sports Editor match. Also music is in us all. The first thing that happens for us as humans is our rhythm begins — our heart begins to beat. What we do with that rhythm is up to each one of us. Coaches and players always talk of playing with a rhythm. A team didn’t miss a beat when a player is injured and a reserve goes in to the game. The other night I closed my eyes and just listened during a basketball game. The music of the game came through — distinctive sounds of the squeaking of basketball shoes on the hardwood floor, basketballs bouncing and if you listen really hard, there are times you hear that snap when a ball goes through the nylon net. Sports and music have gone hand-and-hand for years. It has in my life. I was in the marching bands and basketball pep bands at high school and college. At Kansas State, those bands are more than music makers. They help lead the cheering for teams. COMING DEC. 20, is an opportunity for the area Big Brothers Big Sisters participants to enjoy basketball action at Newton Senior High School.

PCM outlasts Eagles at home By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer MONROE — Grit, toughness and a little bit of luck guided Prairie City-Monroe’s boys past Pella Christian on Monday night. At least that’s how PCM coach Fred Lorensen explained it. The Mustangs were seemingly on top the entire game, at one point stretching a lead out to 15 points. Pella Christian stayed tough at the end, but PCM made enough free throws to hold of the Eagles for a 6151 victory. “I loved our effort,” Lorensen said. “We could have played smarter at times, but we played hard and came out on top.” Dillon Bruxvoort led the way as usual for the Mustangs, scoring 20 points and pulling down seven rebounds, but there were three other Mustangs in double figures. Zach Uhlenhopp, Logan Gilman and Devon Woody scored 10, 11 and 12 points, respectively. For the Eagles, Coltin Collins gave Bruxvoort everything he could handle in the paint. Collins went 9-for-13 shooting, scoring 19 points and pulling down six rebounds.

Mustang girls win third straight By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer MONROE — Prairie City-Monroe’s girls went on a big run to end last regular season, and although this year’s Mustang basketball team has plenty of new faces, they are beginning to play like the Mustangs of old. PCM took down the visiting Pella Christian Eagles 53-49 for their third straight win of the season. The Eagles dropped their third game of the last four. PCM led 10-9 after a back-andforth opening quarter that saw multiple lead-changes. PC’s Lauren Jungling nailed a 3-pointer in the opening seconds, giving the Eagles a

12-10 lead. The Eagles got a stop, and the next time up the floor, Jungling went for another three but missed. Getting the rebound and the putback score was junior Hannah Beltman. PC continued to work the ball into the paint, and Beltman put two more post moves in for baskets to give PC a 18-10 edge when PCM coach Bret Grier took the team’s first timeout. Grier must have had the magic words for his girls, as they jumped right on the Eagles. Junior Courtney Van Houweling missed on a three, but Abbi Gilson was there to clean up the miss with a rebound and a subsequent score. Junior Rachel Gulling nailed a 3-pointer to bring PCM within a point at 18-17. Kayla Jen-

nings and Gulling picked off passes and had fastbreak layups on back-toback possessions to give PCM a 2120 lead, and this time it was PC coach Kevin Van Manen who tried to rally his team during a timeout. PCM passed through the 2-3 zone of the Eagles for scores on consecutive possessions, taking a 25-23 lead, but PC nailed a three right before the half to go into the break with the lead. PC’s Autumn Vos nailed a jumper coming out of the half. Van Houweling answered by finding Lexi Kain under the hoop for an easy score. The scoring stalled out for a couple of minutes until Beltman converted a three-point play to take a 33-29 lead. PC held the Mustangs without a bucket, but Van Houweling stepped into the passing lane and went the other way for the layup. Gulling added a bucket on the next time down to knot the game at 33. That’s when Van Houweling got hot. She nailed two 3-pointers and ended the quarter by drawing contact going to the bucket and banking in the shot to give PCM a 42-35 lead after three quarters. PC started the fourth off with a five-point run. Van Houweling put an end to it by finding Gilson under the bucket on an inbound pass for the score. Gulling nailed a three on the next trip up the floor to re-establish the seven-point edge. Kain swatted an attempt away, and Van Houweling found Katie Vande Wall on the fastbreak to give PCM a 49-40 lead. PC started to foul, but PCM made enough of its free throws to hold the Eagles off for the victory. PC heads to Oskaloosa tonight to kickoff a girls-boys doubleheader, while the Mustangs will take on South Hamilton at Jewell.

Hawk boys open at 1-1, girls win two Boys: Mustangs to By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor

SULLY — Lynnville-Sully’s Hawk basketball teams were on the road last Friday and Saturday. The Hawk girls are “veterans” in the young 2013-14 season but it was season-opening weekend for the Hawk boys. Lynnville-Sully’s boys came up short in their opener Friday night at Keota. The Eagles snagged a 54-51 victory over the visiting Hawks. Lynnville-Sully regrouped to mark one up in the win column, 64-35, over host Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Saturday. The Lynnville-Sully girls improved to 4-0 on the season with a 42-35 win at Keota Friday and pulled out a 51-50 victory over Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Saturday. Lynnville-Sully’s squads hit the road again tonight to play at H-L-V. Friday, the Hawk teams are at home in Sully against Belle Plaine. At Keota, the L-S boys were up 25-22 at halftime. The margin was two points, 37-35, with the Hawks still in front after three quarters. Keota’s Eagles outscored the Hawk boys 19-14 in the final eight minutes to win. “We were disappointed with the outcome but felt we did some positive things that we can build on,” said Nick Harthoorn, Hawk boys’ head coach. “The boys competed hard. We got into some foul trouble early on in the game. We have to play smarter and adjust to the way the game is being called.” Leading the way for the Hawks was T.J. Cunningham, who fired in 16 points followed by Darin Hofer with 13 points. Kyle Van Dyke scored 11 points for Lynnville-Sully.

Cunningham, Van Dyke and Hofer each had six rebounds. Ben Trettin dished out three assists and made three steals. Keota was paced by Nate Owens with 18 points. Kolton Greiner and Luke Lyle scored 16 points apiece. The Hawk boys gained the edge over the EBF Rockets in the middle quarters Saturday. They led 18-12 at the end of one quarter. Over the next two quarters, the Hawks outscored the Rockets 32-11 enroute to the 64-35 win. “Eddyville got off to a quick start offensively, but after we settled in, the guys played great defense. We did a nice job of attacking the basket offensively and we were able to hurt them on the boards,” Harthoorn said. Cunningham poured in 18 points. Van Dyke had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, plus blocked three shots. Hofer grabbed nine rebounds. Trettin and Jake Brand each had three assists. Brand had four of the team’s 16 steals. Peyton Walker and Trevor Swartz each scored nine points for the Rockets. Lynnville-Sully girls’  head coach Jerry Hulsing called the 42-35 victory over Keota Friday a good team win. He said every girl who played contributed in some way. The Hawk girls, who are ranked fourth in Class 1A, were up 19-16 at halftime but never could shake the Keota Eagles. Lynnville-Sully used a 13-8 run in the fourth quarter to stretch it to the final margin. Lyndsay Terpstra paced the Hawks with 10 points. Lysandra James added seven points and pulled down eight rebounds. Madison Rasmusson dished out three assists, stole the ball four times and scored five points.

Kelsi Sieren led Keota with 11 points and eight rebounds. “The girls did a good job of talking on defense and making Keota to have to work to get a good look. When they missed we did a good job of rebounding the ball. I was happy with how we handled Keota’s press we broke it will little trouble. Again the girls really showed some composer down the stretch,” Hulsing said. Against Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont, the Hawk girls appeared to have the game under control by halftime, leading 34-17. The Rockets zoomed right back in the contest with a 23-6 scoring edge in the third quarter. “This game was a tale of two halves,” Hulsing said. “The first half we played as well as we have played all season. Our defense was sharp not letting EB get anything going on offense. Our offense was sharp as we attacked when needed to but were patient when didn’t have numbers.  “In the third quarter we came out flat and didn’t match EB’s intensity. But the girls pulled it together and we made some key play to get back into the game, hit a couple big free throws on an otherwise poor free throw shooting night.” The teams combined for 64 free throw attempts in the game. LynnvilleSully cashed in 19-of-39 from the freethrow line while Eddyville-BlakesburgFremont went 16 -of-25. James scored 16 points and had six rebounds.

PCM nailed the two foul shots, taking its first double-digit lead. Gilman got a diving steal on the next possession and found Bruxvoort in transition. Bruxvoort kicked it in to a wide open Ryan Jennings, who converted the layup. Hessing called a timeout to regroup. Coming out of the timeout, PC’s Josh Posthuma nailed a turnaround jumper. Jason Holwerda hit a three on the next Eagle possession to trim the lead to seven, but Gilman answered with a three of his own. PCM took a 30-19 lead into halftime. Coming out of the half, GIlman took a shot from under the hoop, but it was rejected by Collins. Gilman recovered and put it in. PC’s Brant Vermeer got on the board with a three, but that was answered with a three by Bruxvoort. With two minutes left in the third, Holwerda chopped the lead to 12 with a three. Collins stripped the ball loose and found Sebastian Baugh for the easy score. Baugh hit a pull-up jumper before the buzzer sounded, and the Mustangs led by just nine going into the fourth. PC and PCM went back-and-forth for much of the quarter. Collins hit a postmove score, but Gilman penetrated and answered with a layup. Collins converted a three-point play, and Posthuma nailed two free throws to slim the lead to 47-41. Bruxvoort tossed a seed to Jennings for a score to answer back. With 1:16 left, the Eagles started to foul, and PCM free throws sealed the win for the Mustangs. “With them, every year it’s the same thing,” Lorensen said. “Both teams guard each other very well, and it’s whoever can suck out enough offense that comes away with the win. They take away the stuff we like to do, and vice versa. It’s a battle every time we play. We were just fortunate to make a few more shots than they did and came out on top.” PCM heads to Jewell tonight to take on South Hamilton. It will be the last game the Mustangs play before heading to Story City on Friday. “We haven’t had a lot of time to practice our defense, which is what we need the most work on,” Lorensen said. “With the gap between tomorrow’s game and Friday’s, we’ll have a little more time to work on what we need to.” PC is at Oskaloosa tonight and has a showdown at home on Friday against Newton.
