While “’ Tis the season to be giving,” the United Way of Jasper County’s has been having a difficult time garnering donations for this year’s annual fundraising campaign. “We are actually at 55.2 percent of our goal ($363,000), and you can see where we are lower from the last few years in comparison,” UWJC Executive Director Travis Padget said. Last December, the United Way was at 69.3 percent of its goal, and the year before, it was at 73.8 percent. Some factors that have played a role in this year’s campaign being so sluggish include less educational, public service and large business donations. Padget believes the economic downturn locally also has played a factor as well as raising the goal each of the last two years. “One of the big things is we changed our goal,” Padget said. “We raised it to $363,000, but we really need $450,000 to really match the need of the organizations in Jasper County. Organizations are not getting funded at 100 percent because we are not getting enough money.” Unlike most nonprofits, the United Way doesn’t just support itself. It currently provides funding to 26 different nonprofits in Jasper County. Padget said he has received applications from other nonprofits that wish to become a United Way Community Partner, which would force him to stretch thin funds even thinner. “I have relationships with all of these different agencies, and I think that’s what people miss about the United Way (is) we are not a direct-support organization,” Padget said. “We fundraise for the organizations that can’t fundraise for themselves or have less ability to fundraise at that significant level.” Padget thinks people being confused about the United Way’s purpose also hinders donations.

The weekend snowfall came right within the predicted 5 to 8 inches of snowfall for Jasper County, and it was enough to put some drivers off of the roads Saturday night and early Sunday morning. The National Weather Service put the county under a
Winter Storm Warning, which began at 3 p.m. Saturday and lasted for 27 hours until 6 p.m. Sunday. The snowfall was accompanied by strong northwest winds, which combined with the snowfall accumulation and the asyet un-cleared ice on some roads, provided dangerous conditions for Jasper County travelers.
United Way of Jasper County having hard time raising funds
Second-half rally sparks win
Ty Rushing/Daily News The giant thermometer sign outside of the United Way of Jasper County’s office sits at a little more than the halfway mark this year, which is almost 15 percent lower than it was in 2012. UWJC Executive Director Travis Padget said the organization are having a difficult time raising funds this year.
Ty Rushing/Daily News Jasper County Board of Supervisors Chairman Dennis Stevenson sits at his desk in room 203 of the Jasper County Courthouse. Stevenson has served on the board since 2008 and is known for his “Denny-isms.”
‘That’s a good deal’
Dennis Stevenson, chair of Jasper County Board of Supervisors, brings his own style to governing Part 1 of a series By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer If you have ever read or heard Dennis Stevenson using the phrases, “bang for your buck,” “well, this is a no-brainer” or “that’s a good deal,” then congratulations. You have been exposed to “Dennyisms.” Denny-isms are a collection of words and phrases that Stevenson, the Jasper County Board of Supervisors chairman, has been known to frequently say both in casual conversation and professionally. Since being elected to the board in 2008, Stevenson has taken to applying Dennyisms to his views on running the county government. “I think ‘bang for the buck’ is my big one, and it’s what I believe in,” Stevenson said. “Let’s try to spend our money wisely. We have to spend some money. You can’t not improve things or replace things — you have to do that. We try to do it in such a way that you get that, and I call it ‘bang for your buck.’” Some of the items Stevenson voted for that he believes deliver on the “bang” include the county’s new fiber Internet system, new phone system, the geothermal energy project at the courthouse and the Jasper County Annex/Armory, which houses the county’s Emergency Operation Command Center.
“I think we’ve done very well on the budget to keep it neutral and drop it a little bit,” Stevenson said. “We’ve looked at ways of saving money, and we won’t be able to do that forever, but we continue to look for ways to save money.” “I think we’ve cut the line on taxes pretty decent, and, again, we can’t do that forever,” he continued. “I just think the finances (look good) and that we have been getting some stuff done (for the county).” While most people think the supervisors just meet in room 203 at the courthouse on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. and call it a week, Stevenson and the other members have numerous other duties that go along with their positions. The 911 board, emergency management board and the Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center Board are just a few boards Stevenson serves on. Those three boards seem to fit Stevenson, a former Jasper County deputy, well. “We switch them around some, but the emergency management and 911 (boards) were just an interest of mine,” Stevenson said. “The other guys were fine with it. Juvenile detention, was, again, another interest of mine, and we have switched them up some.” Stevenson also described what he felt was a typical day as chairman of board. “The main duty is I
conduct the meetings,” Stevenson said. “If somebody calls in — we get a lot of phone calls — and wants to talk to a supervisor, they send them to me or whoever is the chair at that time. Also, (I do) housekeeping type of stuff, check the mail, sign the claim forms so they can be submitted for approval, just a lot of housekeeping type of stuff that the board has to do.” He estimates conservatively he puts in 30 hours a week and shows up at 8 a.m. five days a week. Other housekeeping items he listed included making rounds with the county’s various department heads, checking messages, overseeing projects and studying agenda items before Tuesday’s public meetings. Like all publicly elected officials, Stevenson has dealt with some criticism he felt was unwarranted, but his time on the Kellogg City Council prepared him for the challenges. And in his down time, he likes to take his mind off work by enjoying time with his wife, Jane, and their grandchildren. “My granddaughter, who is now 8, was about 3 and when she wanted something from her mother and her mother said ‘No.’ So my granddaughter told her, ‘You call my papa, him say yes.’ She’s a very smart little girl,” Stevenson said with a deep chuckle.

Newton woman wins $30,000 in Scratch game Special to the Daily News A mistake by a convenience store clerk paid off for a Newton woman. Angela Lacy, 37, said she received a “Let It Snow Crossword” scratch ticket instead of the one she requested. But instead of returning the ticket, Lacy decided to keep it and ended up winning a $30,000 top prize.
“It hasn’t sunk in at all,” Lacy said as she claimed her prize Wednesday at the Iowa Lottery’s headquarters in Des Moines. Her husband, Josiah, joined her. Lacy said she checked her winning ticket numerous times and had her husband look it over. She also took it back to the convenience store where she bought it — Casey’s at 3104 First Ave. E. in Newton — to
have it double checked. Lacy, who works at Love’s Travel Stop in Newton, said she and her husband plan to use the lottery winnings to pay off bills. Let It Snow Crossword is a $3 scratch game. Players win a prize by uncovering at least three complete words in the ticket’s puzzle. If a player uncovers 10 words, he/she wins $30,000. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are 1 in 3.82.

Wessels was one of several officers who helped apprehend a 31-year-old man who was accused of choking his girlfriend and attacking her with a hammer. When the assault happened in an east Des Moines parking lot, two men heard the victim screaming and intervened to pull her out of the
man’s truck. Police did not catch up to the suspect until he was spotted driving by the victim’s home two days later. The suspect refused to pull over and fled. Wessels arrived in the middle of the pursuit. As officers were trying to apprehend the suspect, he accelerated and Wessels shot out one of the rear tires of the sus-

Continued from Page 1A Stevenson said running for the board was something that had always interested him and thinks more citizens should give it a go. “More people should step up and take their shot at this too,” Stevenson said. “People should show an interest.” Being a supervisor is a demanding job, as the board oversees more than a dozen departments and either has a board member or delegate on more than 30 other boards or committees. Stevenson seems to understand these challenges and the responsibilities that go along with them. “We deal with such a wide-variety of topics,” Stevenson said. “I think the most difficult part, for me, is just worrying about if we are making the right decision, you know? We try to look at all aspects of it, and you make a decision, and you want to make sure we’re getting it right.” Staff writer Ty Rushing may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 426, or at trushing@newtondailynews. com.

A thank you note a day keeps the doctor away! Last week I wrote about a woman who has been writing to a pen pal in Australia for 77 years. Seems like letter writing runs in the family. One of her daughters, Cindy Rupe, took on the unique task/ pleasure of writing a thank you note a day for nine months. Yep.
Cindy teaches second grade at By Curt Swarm James ElementaGuest Columnist ry School in Ottumwa. She got the idea of the daily thank you notes from an article she read by John Kralik, “365 Days of Gratitude.” Cindy started her thank-you-a-day note writing on Thanksgiving two years ago. She made a list of 25 people she wanted to express thanks to and started in. These were friends, family members, acquaintances, people she worked with, church friends and lead-
ers — most anyone she had come in contact with. Cindy radiates positive feelings and receives them back. Sometimes, these thank-you notes were simply gratitude for being her friend, or a thankyou for services rendered, or gratitude for that person being part of the village that helped raise her three sons. And the results of this note writing were overwhelming — for the recipients and her personally. One lady was about to quit her job, when she received the “thankyou-for-what-you-do” note. It turned her whole outlook around, gave her strength to carry on, and made her realize that what she does is indeed needed and appreciated. Fr. Nick, a former well-known priest in Mt. Pleasant, was also a priest in Ottumwa. When he first came to Ottumwa, Andrew, Cindy’s oldest son, was Fr. Nick’s first baptism. In the note, Cindy thanked Fr. Nick for the positive influence he had
Letter to the Editor
been on Andrew, and relayed the good news that Andrew, now 24, was about to be married. Fr. Nick wrote back that he had never received a note like that and how grateful he was to receive it. He went on to thank Cindy and her family for all the work and support they provided to the parish. Cindy does most of her writing in the morning — she’s a morning person. When she writes to someone, that person is in her mind. She’s thinks about that person’s good qualities and tries to emulate them. Can you imagine the positive influence a teacher like Cindy would have on second-grade students? She encourages her students to write thankyou notes to guest readers, and student teachers. All three of her sons, and her mother, have been guest readers. One of her sons, Patrick, is a Navy copilot on an F-18. One of her students wrote him a thank-you note for being a reader, and
Patrick wrote back, “Listen to your teacher, she is very smart.” Cindy aspires to what newspaper columnist Jim Davidson describes as the three stages of life: learning, earning, and giving back. In the first 25 years of your life, you are learning. The second twenty-five is devoted to earning. The last twenty-five should be giving back. Cindy is in the “giving back” stage. New Year’s Day is approaching, the time of reflection and resolution. Cindy has decided she is going to fire up the daily note writing again, starting on New Year’s Day. This time she is shooting for the full year. Watch out world! ••• Have a good story? Call or text Curt Swarm in Mt.

Emerald ash borer has arrived This is my third column on this subject, and I’m beating the drum on this issue because the Emerald Ash Borer’s entrance and march across the state is absolutely inevitable. In simpler terms, if you have green, black or white Ash trees in your yard, or along your street, By Dennis Black the chances are fairly high they Iowa Senate District 15 will become infected and lost to this major tree pest that has hit America. Foresters surmise the borer entered the U. S. from Asia or Eastern Russia via wooden pallets. The result has been highly devastating where the beetle is starting to do its damage. The costs of infested tree removal, disposal of debris and reforestation are significant. And, although there are claims to the contrary, it appears the actual success of defeating this tsunami moving into Iowa are highly ineffective. Likewise, there has been little success in killing the beetle to the point where it will not be a threat. At the moment, we just do the best we can, and trust our state forestry department and arborists to provide leadership and guidance. Chemical treatment of individual trees is the best of the available poor options. Add to this the fact that few communities have an inventory of street-scape vegetation. And, if the city is able to financially commit to the treatment of trees between the street and sidewalk, there has to be a similar effort by the home owner to do
Dan Goetz Publisher Mandi Lamb Associate Editor
the same on their own property. Burlington is identified by state foresters as being fully infected; Fairfield will soon have that designation; Allamakee and Clayton counties both have pockets of infestation,; and, just this week, the Emerald Ash Borer was found in Creston, in southwest Iowa. You can rest absolutely assured that there are hundreds of other communities in the state where this forest tree insect pest is currently present, but yet to be discovered. It is small, yet deadly, and can kill a tree in two years by girdling the cambium, just inside the bark. When you notice a thinning canopy and dieback on your Ash trees, you can be certain it is too late to save them. There goes that beauty, a void in your property landscape, the need to replant a variety of new species, and the loss of shade until replaced by new plantings. For right now, it would be wise for communities and residents to Google “Emerald Ash Borer” and become knowledgeable about the facts of recognition, possible means of treatment, and recommended tree species to plant next spring to replace the Ash whose destiny is pretty well determined. In addition, the Forestry Department of DNR has guidance, along with Iowa State University Extension Services. Rest assured I shall be dealing with this issue more in the future, for the costs to citizens, communities and the state of Iowa will be substantial. ••• Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to readers.

In Iowa’s Interest
Our investment in early learning is paying off If we fail to invest in children early on, during the period of their most rapid development, those children are more likely to enter school behind. If the playing field is unleveled at the outset, how can we hope to remain a nation By Tom Harkin of promise and prosper- United States Senator ity for all? It is with that in mind that I have introduced the Strong Start for America’s Children Act, a bill that would greatly expand access to high-quality early learning experiences for children from birth to kindergarten entry. Something that we need to expunge from our lexicon is the term “pre-school.” There is no such thing as pre-school because we know that learning begins at birth and the preparation for learning begins before birth. My bill reinforces this idea by ensuring that our most vulnerable children have the support they need to be healthy, happy, and ready for school on the first day of kindergarten. We start by creating new early learning quality partnerships, so that Early Head Start grantees can partner with center-based and family child care providers to offer infants and toddlers full-day, fullyear, high-quality services. I also proposed a new federal-
state partnership to accelerate the work currently being done in states to support high-quality early learning for 3- and 4-year olds. To receive funding through the partnership, states must support programs that are of high-quality, meaning programs must have well-trained teachers, low class sizes, low child-to-staff ratios, curricula that are developmentally appropriate, and programs must provide other services that support the non-academic needs of kids, including nutritious foods, physical activity, and strong parent and family engagement. These are the kinds of common-sense, researchbased activities and services that any parent would want for their child, and they also reflect the type of support that many states and communities are currently providing in their early learning programs. I want to thank President Obama for calling for this deep investment in early learning during his State of the Union. This legislation follows through on that vision. But it will also face opposition from those who say we can’t afford it. The evidence and research around early learning is too strong to ignore and if we don’t invest now, we will pay for it later in the form of high school drop-outs and crowded prisons. Quite simply, failing to invest in high-quality early learning is against our moral and economic responsibility as a nation.

Commitment to relationship ends at computer keyboard DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in an exclusive, committed relationship with “Vince.” We have talked about a future together and getting married. My only issue is I can’t seem to keep him off of dating sites. Even when I catch Vince red-handed, he’ll deny it or blame it on his friend “using his ID.” I have asked him over and over to delete the sites, but he won’t. He continues to tell me he’s in love with me and wants only me. He says I’m the woman of his dreams. If that’s true, there should be no need for him to look anymore, right? Please help me understand his obsession, and if there are any tools I can use to be more effective to talk to Vince about this. — FUMING IN FLORIDA DEAR FUMING: Your communication tools are just fine. Your ability to recognize when someone is stringing you along is what needs improvement. You may feel you are in a committed relationship, but Vince appears to be less committed than you are. Worse, he also has a problem telling the truth. If Vince wanted only you and was ready to settle down, he wouldn’t compulsively look online to see who else is available. DEAR ABBY: I’m conflicted about my role in supporting my children through the death of my ex-wife. We divorced 25 years ago. There was no significant other in her life. I would like to support them emotionally, but I feel the burial, funeral, etc., are matters for their family and her relatives. My question is, am I right? And how soon should I go and be with my children? We have been in close touch, and I believe they know that I care and I’m here for them. They live across the country, so the distance and cost of transportation are concerns. — CONFLICTED IN TEXAS
DEAR CONFLICTED: I’m sure no one expects you to contribute financially to the funeral of someone from whom you have been divorced for a quarter of a century. However, you should ask your adult children if they would like you to attend for emotional support. Because they are all grown and presumably busy with their lives, if your presence isn’t needed at the funeral, you could schedule a family reunion at a time when it’s convenient for all of you. DEAR ABBY: What do I do about a friend who often interrupts a conversation to check his phone and look up the topic on the Internet? He then adds to — or corrects — the discussion we are having. It’s starting to ruin the friendship. Any advice? — OVERCORRECTED IN TEXAS DEAR OVERCORRECTED: Whether someone doing this is offensive or not depends upon the spirit in which it’s being done. Your friend may not be certain that what he — or you — is saying is correct and he wants to verify it. Often when people check information online, they find more information on the subject. Your friend may be doing it in the spirit of helpfulness. My husband and I do this with each other often, and neither of us is offended.

Second-half rally sparks Newton win over Panthers By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer NEWTON — Newton’s girls were off to a slow start against Knoxville on Friday. Trailing by eight points late in the third quarter, coach Brandon Sharp started to get animated. His suit jacket came off. His face turned bright red, and he was looking for some excitement out of the Cardinal girls. Along the way, one or all of those things may have had an effect on his team. Michaela Jacobsen started scoring at a furious pace, and the Cards ended up with a double-digit victory, 60-47. “We made a couple plays when we started playing with
some enthusiasm,” Sharp said. “It starts with the energy that we bring. Whether it’s us on the bench or teammates out on the court, we talked about getting more excited for what a teammate does than what you do. Once we hit that point, that was the difference.” Jacobsen provided a big difference, as well. She scored a majority of her 19 points toward the end of the third and in the fourth quarter, sparking a scoring rally in the final 10 minutes of the second half that more than doubled the team’s output from the first half. “This is the type of player Michaela can be,” Sharp said. “When things get going, she can do that. We haven’t seen
it for a couple games, because she has kind of struggled with her shooting. Tonight, in the second half, she took it to the basket and got herself going that way.” Newton led 13-7 after the first quarter, but the Cardinal offense halted in the second quarter. Both teams were in the penalty early on in the quarter, and it ended up favoring the Panthers, who climbed back into the game and tied the game briefly. Newton took a 23-22 lead at halftime. The Panthers got off to a hot start in the second half, getting inside the lane and scoring some easy buckets. With five minutes left in the quarter, Knoxville led 33-25
and had the basketball. Sophomore Sydney Jenkins got the Cards started by finishing a layup through contact. Jacobsen nailed a baseline jumper the next time down to cut the lead to four. Shelby Gray picked off an inbounds pass and hit Jacobsen cutting to the bucket to pull within two. Knoxville hit a free throw to end the quarter, still leading by three.

Newton boys split weekend games By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer NEWTON — Newton’s boys were stuck in a threegame rut after opening the season with two victories, but business picked up for the Cards with a 78-64 win over the visiting Knoxville Panthers Friday night. Unfortunately for the Cards, the game the following afternoon against Marshalltown was not as fruitful. Newton fell to the Bobcats, 85-70. Newton fell behind early, trailing by six points after the opening quarter. Marshalltown picked up its scoring to keep pace with the Cards the rest of the way, and Newton never got within striking distance in the second half. Newton struggled to defend the 3-point line with Marshalltown hitting 8-of-17 from behind the arc. The Bobcats shot 30for-49 overall, better than 61 percent. Marshalltown’s Aaron Hauser hit 11 out of 17 shots for 26 points, and four other Bobcat players scored in double figures. Against the Panthers, Junior Tyler Wood and senior Chandler Sturtz scored a combined 47 points for the Cards, much of them coming from beyond the 3-point arc. Wood’s four 3-pointers

in the third quarter helped the Cards offset a flurry of inside scoring from the Panthers. “I think we just kind of wore them out,” Newton coach Nick Wilkins said. “Tyler hit some big shots for us and played well. That’s what kind of pushed us out toward the lead is when he took over a little bit at the end of the third.” Wilkins was pleased to see shots falling for his
team, but he knows that lack of an inside presence will continue to trouble his team if things head the way they are trending. Knoxville’s junior center Nathan Winters scored 17 points, most of which were around the bucket. He bullied and bumped around Newton’s frontcourt without much resistance. “We’ve struggled with that all year. It’s not just this game,” Wilkins said of the team’s interior defense. “That’s our biggest challenge as we’re more of a finesse team. We’re not a physical team. We don’t have those bruisers inside. It really shows against a team like this that is really physical. We struggled, mostly because we don’t hold our ground, and we’re not ready to be physical.” Newton and the Panthers went back-and-forth in the opening quarter. Daquan Allen hit a floater shortly before the buzzer sounded to tie the game at 10 apiece. Wood nailed a dribble pull-up jumper to kickoff the second. Allen followed with putback off an offensive rebound. Wood nailed his first 3-pointer to give the Cards a 17-10 lead. Knoxville was able to draw some fouls on the Cards, giving the Panthers some early free throw op-

portunities. The Panthers took advantage and closed the gap. With the game tied 23-23, Sturtz knocked down a 3-pointer. Wood followed up with a baseline drive that led to a bucket. Junior Nick Easley hit two free throws before halftime, giving Newton a 34-26 lead. Knoxville’s Bryce Zoutte led the team back with two 3-pointers early in the third quarter to bring the Panthers within two. That is when Wood caught fire. He hit a 3-pointer from the corner. Winters answered with an inside bucket, but Wood hit another one from the same spot to give Newton a 48-42 lead. Sturtz knocked one down, and Wood hit another two 3-pointers to end the quarter with Newton up 10. Knoxville chopped the lead in half within the first two minutes of the fourth quarter, but Allen and Easley got the Cards back on top by double figures, and solid free throw shooting carried Newton to the finish. Interior defense will be the focus for Newton over the break. After about a week off, the Cards will head back into the gym for some work on physicality.
MARSHALLTOWN — Newton girls’ head coach Brandon Sharp has only one explanation for the Cardinals losing 44-30 Saturday afternoon to host Marshalltown. “We were physically and emotionally drained from a very intense game Friday night,” Sharp said. “It was the first time this year we’ve played back-to-back games like this. We won Friday night and it took a lot out of us.” Sharp said Saturday was a “strange” day for basketball all the way around. One of the contributing factors was that the junior varsity girls’ game was played at a different site and ran long. “We started the game with just seven players and we had three girls pick up two fouls each in the first quarter. Because we didn’t have the junior varsity girls there, Michaela ( Jacobsen) had to continue to play and she picked up her third foul in the first quarter,” Sharp said. Jacobsen, who is the team’s leading scorer, didn’t play at all in the second quarter. The Cardinals trailed 14-7 after one quarter and faced a 26-14 halftime deficit. Newton outscored Marshalltown’s Bobcats 8-4 in the third quarter, but the Bobcats maintained their

Newton, Pella Christian teams bowl at Oskaloosa By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor OSKALOOSA — Newton’s girls are burning up the bowling lanes no matter what bowling alley they are competing at this season. Home and away, the Cardinal girls are winning — convincingly. Saturday, the Cardinal girls rolled up a win at Oskaloosa’s triangular meet. Newton won with a team total of 2,277 followed by Oskaloosa at 2,098 and Pella Christian at 1,456. The Eagles did not have a full team for the girls’ competition. Newton’s boys finished second behind Oskaloosa. The Indians combined for a 2,686 pin count with the Cardinals coming in with a 2,332. Pella Christian finished at 2,009. “The girls worked extremely hard in practice this week on generating more hook and ball rotation on their strike ball,” said Seth Banwell, Newton bowling coach. “It really paid off today on this tough lane condition. The boys struggled a bit on the lanes this afternoon. They bowled really well considering the tough lane conditions.” Leading the way for the Newton girls was Madison Humphrey with a 363. Humphrey followed a 162 first game with a 201. Erica Bailey was next with a 334 (183-151). Mariah Gonzales bowled a 316 (124-137) followed by Melanie Stice at 261 (132-164), Kirsten Young at 258 (143-115) and Courtney Tabor (89-151). “Melanie Stice completely changed her approach and ball motion on the lanes. She used to stand on the far left side of the approach and throw a back up ball. We moved her to the right side of the lane and got her ball hooking in the right direction. She had some unbelievable shots and I expect her scores will continue to raise all season,” Banwell said. Banwell said Humphrey and Bailey are very dependable week after week for Newton. The Cardinals had a strong lead after the individual games with a team score of 1,512. Banwell said they extended

their lead after each game in the Baker round. Newton’s Baker games were 135, 146, 160, 156 and 172 for a team score of 769. “Our boys had a lot of ups and downs throughout the meet. This was very evident in our Baker scores. The boys went from a 200 to a 163 up to a 213 and only threw a 121 their last game,” Banwell said. “We need to learn from our mistakes and not dwell on them. Bowling is a very mental game and it’s hard to recover after a bad ball is thrown. Staying calm and being positive will really boost are scores in the future.” Alex Bare paced the Cardinal boys with a 371. He threw a 224 game after scoring a 141 in the first game. Payton Cox finished with a 323 (187-136) and Joe Stammeyer had a 270 (132-138).
Reid Miller bowled a 253 (114-139) and Bryan McMahon had a 251 (121-130). Nick VerSteeg rolled a 244 (125-119). The NHS boys’ Baker games were 167, 200, 163, 213, 121 for a total of 864. Jordan Pleima led Pella Christian with a 306. Max Shannon, who had the highest individual game for the Eagles — a 176, finished with a 296. “Our score was just a few pins less than last week, so we’ve still got some work to do. Spares seem to give us a lot of trouble yet,” Pella Christian head coach Rod Blunck said. The Newton teams are back in action Jan. 4 at home against Clarke. Pella Christian’s bowlers go to Norwalk Jan. 11.

Raider girls claim first win; boys win too By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor MAXWELL — What a Christmas present Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s girls gave themselves and the Raider fans. The Raider girls finally notched a game in the win column after an 0-8 start to the 2013-14 basketball season. CMB’s girls captured a 54-49 win over Grandview Park Baptist, which was 6-0 coming into the game, Saturday afternoon in front of a home crowd. The CMB boys followed with a 65-54 win over the Defender boys. The Raiders’ games on Friday night at Baxter against Heart of Iowa rival Prairie City-Monroe were postponed. Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s girls trailed Grandview Park 24-17 at halftime. The Raiders turned the tide in the second half. They outscored the visitors from Des Moines 18-13 to close the gap to two points, 37-35, by the end of the third quarter. The Raider girls surged to their first win of the season on a 19-12 run in the final eight minutes. CMB made the run with five players scoring four or more points in the game

while the Defenders had just three scoring points. Abbie Haupert led the way for CMB with 19 points. Lexi Breon fired in 14 points. The Raiders were 10-of-13 from the free-throw line. Katie Hall poured in 24 points for Grandview Park Baptist. Kayle Whittington added 16 points. IN THE BOYS’ contest, the
Raiders bolted to a 16-9 first-quarter lead, but only led by four points, 28-24, at halftime. They had stumbled a bit in the second quarter to trail the Defenders 24-18 with 3:22 left in the period. Seth Balke downed two free throws to tie the game at 24-24. Balke’s field goal at the 1:18 mark put the Raiders back in front, 26-24,

a 3-pointer to tie the game right off the bat in the fourth. She hit the next two buckets for the Cards to take a fourpoint lead. Alex Hutchinson got into the mix with a driving hoop. Hutchinson then nailed a 3-pointer from the corner, which effectively served as a dagger. Despite the second half surge, Sharp wants his girls to continue to improve with their intensity and shot selection in order to keep up this level of play on a nightly basis. “Short selection on offense was a big Achilles heel in the first half,” he said. “We started the game off really well, I thought and then we got a little complacent with our shot selection. We took way to many from the outside. At the beginning of the game, we got their post in foul trouble, and we got away from that. We went to our guards when we should’ve kept going inside toward the basket.”
lead with a 14-8 run in the final eight minutes. “We just didn’t play the type of basketball we’ve been playing most of the season. We had three girls foul out of the game. It was pretty rough with a lot of mental errors,” Sharp said. “We’ll use the break well to re-energize and get ready for the second part of the season.” Jacobsen finished with seven points for Newton. Hannah Rhoads and Sarah Kalkhoff each added five points. The Cardinals were 8-of-15 from the free-throw line. Kali Banks led the Bobcats with 13 points. Newton goes into the Christmas break at 2-6. The Cardinals are back in action Jan. 3 at home against Ballard.

Larry & Diana Ambroson Excess Salt May Weaken Bones A diet that is high in sodium may increase a woman’s post-menopausal risk of breaking a bone, according to a Japanese study. A high-salt diet may increase excretion of calcium in urine. This causes calcium to be leached from bone, which can contribute to bone loss and may increase risk of fracture. The study found that women who ate the most sodium had four times the risk of fracture at any site other than the spine. Protect your bones by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, and talk with your healthcare professional or pharmacist about getting enough calcium and vitamin D.

limitations and urgency that time imposes, a sense of relief and ease will settle in.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 23). You’ll spend thousands of hours doing what you love. You will visualize, create, build and repeat the process. Your favorite people create memories with you in January. You’ll invest in March and reap rewards for years. Travel in June and September. What you learn about another culture will help your business. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 22, 14, 3 and 19.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You don’t think you know more than anyone else about what it means to be human, and yet there are those who seek your counsel and will follow every bit of advice you offer.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Frustration, untended, could turn to anger. One way to defuse it is to take away the time frame. Without the
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). When you simplify your life, you make other people’s lives simpler, as well. This is a gift you can give the world: a beautiful, uncomplicated example.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe happiness isn’t merely about having a favorable ratio of positive to negative thoughts. Then again, it just might be that simple. Add a few more positive influences to see. ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a hard job ahead. Do as much as you can by yourself without asking for help. It will
feel good to know what you’re capable of, and the sense of accomplishment you get at the end of the day can’t be beat. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Be the first person to arrive on the scene if you can, because there will be many advantages for the early birds. Your options will be better, and you’ll wind up in a position of leadership, too. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you don’t know what your advantage over the competition is yet, now is a good time to figure it out. Yes, you do have one, though you might have some work to do in order to maintain it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because your mind is preoccupied with a loved one’s pressing needs, you may forget your own. Who is taking care of you? If no one else is asking you how you’re feeling, you need to tend more closely to yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone, but not everyone, will get your brand
of playfulness. What you say in good fun might be construed as seriousness and/or fact by someone with a different sense of humor or perhaps no sense of humor at all. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The way you approach the day’s tasks will defy conventional wisdom, which is why people watch you, fascinated and taking bets on what you’ll do next. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have no problem capturing people’s attention. Success depends on knowing what to do with it after that. Decide what will make the most favorable difference to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Ask quality questions. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself in boring, meaningless conversations — or worse, you won’t learn what you need to know to get to your next goal post.

Integrated Treatment Services to offer Drunk Driving School, OWI evaluation services By Zach Johnson Daily News Staff Writer Integrated Treatment Services LLC looks at the long-term success of not only its patients but its business as well. Terry and Karen Sallis will be offering both the official Drunk Driving School and OWI Evaluation at ITS. With more than 35 years of substance abuse and treatment services between them, Terry and Karen have recognized that many centers have a break in services, and they wanted to create a seamless path of services, allowing community members to complete both Drunk Driving School and have an OWI evaluation at the same location. “No other treatment facility in the state offers both classes at their individual facility,” Owner Terry Sallis said. “We believe here at Integrated Treatment Services that clients should get a seamless array of services, sort of a onestop shop.” The program for the Drunk Driving School and the evalu-
Zach Johnson/Daily News Terry Sallis, Terris Sallis and Karen Sallis go over the reading and workbook material for the Drunk Driving school that will be offered Integrated Treatment Services along with the OWI Evaluation Service.
ation is through Prime For Life, which is the official program not only for Iowa but for 47 other states as well. The second business move by the Sallis family is the addition of an intern, their son Terris Sallis. He is currently pursuing a degree in social work at Wartburg College. Terris wants to specialize in clinical psychology. For Terris to get certified in Iowa, he will have to do an addition 1,000 hour internship, which Terris is still undecided if he will do at ITS or at another agency.
“We want to give him a firsthand experience, not just in running a counseling session but in the running of an agency, which includes interacting with the community and major players that are included in running an agency,” Sallis said. “It’s an understanding, the business is only as good as the relationship that you have with all the players.” Terry still has more plans for the future of ITS with having a video treatment as a supplement

to the services, which will be programmed through Skype. “We still have some licensing and certifications with Iowa Board of Social Work and Iowa Board of Certification,” Terry said. “We wouldn’t be the first treatment center in the country to offer it but would be the first treatment center in the state to offer this supplement to its clients.” Staff writer Zach Johnson may be contacted at (641) 792-3121, ext. 425, or at zjohnson@ newtondailynews.com.

Sunday, after the storm’s conclusion, the agency had received nine calls for assistance. Six incidents were considered to be non-emergencies, with vehicles sliding off of the roadway without any injuries or damage. Two single-vehicle accidents occurred overnight, one involving a semi in which the driver did not need any medical assistance and another involving a car in which multiple passengers were surveyed for minor injuries. The final accident occurred around 9 a.m. Sunday, again involving a semi with no injuries reported. The current five-day forecast shows a 70 percent chance of light snow on Tuesday and flurries on Christmas day.

“People think of us as a Salvation Army or a Red Cross because the brand is similarly known,” Padget explained. “People miss that by giving to us, you’re giving to 26 different community programs. Instead of writing 26 different checks, you can write one. That’s a big piece that I run into, people not knowing.” During the United Way’s kickoff luncheon in September, Padget explained people don’t need “Donald Trump money” to make an impact and that just a dollar a week makes a difference, a fact he reiterated. Using 2010 Census figures from Jasper County, Padget estimated if everyone of the county’s 16,2856 households donated just $1 dollar a week for one year, the United Way would raise $846,872. This figure is almost three times the amount of the United Way’s goal and nearly twice of what it says it actually needs. “We are trying to increase the impact that we have without as much money,” Padget said. “It’s just difficult trying to provide more with less.” The United Way is accepting donations for this year’s campaign until March 31 and plans on starting the process of distributing checks to partner agencies in January. To make a contribution, contact the United Way of Jasper County at (641) 7921684.
