Coming

OST news editor • ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

A last call is being issued for old pictures of Osceola’s downtown area. Osceola Historic Preservation Commission is needing the pictures for an intensive survey and evaluation. “We’re finishing up our research work,” said Ann Diehl with Osceola Historic Preservation Commission. “I’ve had 10 or 12 people … researching old newspapers for businesses that might have moved in and out of the downtown buildings. It’s an intensive study of the downtown business district.” Grant money Last year, Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) awarded $91,051 to 12 Iowa cities and counties to support historic preservation programs. Osceola received $11,702 in grant funding. The grant awards are from DCA’s certified local government program, a partnership between local, state and national governments focused on promoting historic preservation at the local level. Osceola Historic Preservation Commission will undertake an intensive survey of its downtown, documenting historical and architectural significance of local buildings. The project will also determine whether Osceola’s downtown area is eligible for the National Register

Work progresses on Casey’s General Store in Murray By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

MURRAY — The building is up at Murray’s new Casey’s General Store. Craig Justice, chairman for Murray Development, said construction work is currently being done on the inside of the new Casey’s. “I’d say they’ve got about 20 percent of the concrete work to do outside,” Justice said. “They’ve got to set Justice the pumps yet. Of course, they’ve got to finish the dirt work next spring because the weather went against them this time of year.” Work in progress After the town’s convenience store left in February 2012, there was a

need for another one. In March 2013, it was announced Murray would be receiving a Casey’s General Store. “The nice thing with Casey’s coming in, they listed it out as $1.3 million investment for them, for the town,” said Murray City Councilman Greg Clark. Justice said Nik Werner, former mayor of Murray, was instrumental in bringing a Casey’s to Murray. The building’s location is directly south of Murray School District. “They (Casey’s) had to do their preliminaries and they made their initial downpayment on it then. They had to do some engineer work,” Justice said. “I was told at the time that they were really busy because they were putting new stores in Wisconsin. So, they were going to have to outsource a lot of the stuff they usually do in house.” Clark said he has been in conver-

sation with the regional manager for Murray’s Casey’s. An opening date is scheduled for mid-April because of construction and weather delays. Amenities The store will sell pizza, but it won’t have a deli. Justice said the store is set up to have four gas pumps. There will be a diesel gas pump, two super unleaded gas pumps and a regular unleaded gas pump. Clark said Casey’s is looking to hire approximately 20 employees for the new store. Hiring advertisements should be in Osceola Sentinel-Tribune and Creston News Advertiser within the next month. “It’s got to be the best thing that’s happened to the town for years,” Justice said. “There’s not been any company that’s come to the town to put this type of capital expenditure as long I’ve been there.”

Pictures must be turned in to Osceola Historic Preservation Commission by Monday. of Historic Places. Many of the buildings in the town’s square are from the 1870s to the 20th century. “To be on the historic register, you can’t just be a grand old building or a beautiful, beautiful old house,” Diehl said. “There has to be something important — either somebody important was in there, somebody did something important for the town or an important act (happened).” There has been more than 450 hours of research donated by volunteers for this project, so far. Still needed Diehl said many old pictures, snapshots or other images are still needed for the project. The survey area goes around the square and a half-block from each corner of the square. Pictures should be taken from the 1960s and older. “We have a lot of Main Street (but) that doesn’t mean we don’t want anymore,” Diehl said. “We have Please see PHOTOS, Page 4

Nationwide recognition Lampe named SBO magazine’s Iowa director who makes a difference ​By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

When Brad Lampe, Clarke High School band director, first found out he had been named in School Band and Orchestra (SBO) magazine for 2013’s 50 Directors Who Make a Difference, it was actually through Facebook. “A bunch of my band director friends on Facebook started to congratulate me … I looked online, and sure enough it was in there,” Lampe said. Since the magazine was sent out during winter break, Lampe hadn’t seen the results since his edition was in his school mailbox. SBO is a nationwide magazine published for band directors. Every year, the magazine publishes a section on 50 band directors who make a difference. Nominations come into the magazine, and a list is compiled of band directors with one chosen from each state. Honor This year, Lampe was chosen to represent Iowa. He said he has no idea who originally nominated him for the honor. “It just came, which is kind of cool,” Lampe said. “I don’t know. It wasn’t any of my family members or anything like that. So, I know it’s not too closely related to me. That’s kind of a neat recognition.” SINGLE COPY PRICE: 75¢

According to Lampe, the honor also showcases the support Clarke gives to instrumental music. “It’s a group effort. It’s not just mine,” he said. “I mean, the school has been really supportive of what we do.” Personal experience One of the reasons Lampe decided to become a band teacher is his own high-school experience. In 1980, Lampe graduated from high school in Geneseo, Ill. When he first entered high school, Lampe was small in stature — just 4 feet, 10 inches. Lampe said his high school was driven by a lot of athletic programs, especially football. However, Lampe said he found his “niche” in band, and then expanded into other extracurricular activities. “That’s kind of why I got into teaching in the first place,” Lampe said. “I love music, but I got into it because I had a great highschool experience when I was a high-school kid. Part of the reason I had such a great experience was through band and choir and drama and speech. That was my thing.” Music education In 1984, Lampe graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island, Ill., with a Please see LAMPE, Page 4

Eye diseases may go unnoticed in individuals with diabetes (BPT) — With more than 8 percent of the American population having been diagnosed with diabetes, regular dilated eye exams are critical to prevent vision loss. Diabetes is a disease that interferes with the body’s ability to use and store sugar, which can cause many health problems. Too much sugar in the blood can cause damage throughout the body, including the eyes.

Over time, diabetes affects the circulation system of the retina, the light-sensitive lining at the back of the eye. Only 32 percent of respondents are aware that diabetic eye disease often has no visual signs or symptoms, according to

the AOA’s 2013 American Eye-Q consumer survey. Additionally, only 39 percent know that diabetes can be detected through a comprehensive eye examination. People with diabetes at greater risk for eye and vi-

sion disorders People with diabetes are at a significantly higher risk for developing eye diseases including glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy, one of the most serious sight-threatening complications of diabetes.

a lot of them because there tends to be a lot of postcards taken.” Diehl said she wanted to remind people to check old scrapbooks. Pictures don’t necessarily need to have the building be the main focus of the image. Diehl said old pictures

could be of a parade or a relative with a building in the background. Osceola Historic Preservation Commission needs the pictures in by Monday. They can be turned into Diehl or Ed Stoll. “We’d rather have too many pictures than not enough,” Diehl said.

LAMPE: Continued from Page 1

bachelor’s degree in music education. Lampe’s first job teaching was at a small school district called Shelby-Tennant. In 1987, Lampe became band director at Clarke. In 1991, Lampe graduated from Drake University with a master’s degree in music education. His main instrument is the clarinet, and for his master’s recital he did a performance with it. Achievements Now that Lampe is in his 30th year of teaching overall, there are many career achievements he has helped to accomplish. When he first started teaching at Clarke, there were only 37 students in band. In Lampe’s magazine biography, it states there are now 102 instrumental-music students. “I used that vehicle to help kids have a great experience in high school. I teach them how to be adults through music,” Lampe said. “That’s kind of my mantra — teach kids how to be adults

through music or teach them character through music.” Lampe is the current president of Iowa Bandmaster’s Association, which means he has to organize Iowa Bandmaster’s Convention in May at the downtown Marriott Hotel in Des Moines. Out of 23 years, Clarke’s marching band has received 22 “I-superior” ratings at state marching contests. When Clarke’s band did receive a “II” rating one year, Lampe said it reinforced the importance of teaching his students to work hard and not take anything for granted. Clarke’s program Lampe said he’s been offered other jobs throughout the years, however, it would be hard to leave a program he has helped to create. “What we’ve created here at Clarke was something I’m proud of,” he said. “I worked hard to get this where it is — the new bandroom, the new auditorium, the level of musicianship, the performances — it’s all something that was created, and it’s kind of our little family.”

Healthy happy family travel (BPT) — Looking to take a road trip but dread hearing the infamous “Are we there yet?” or “Can we please, please stop for fast food?” questions. Never fear, Registered Dietitian, author and mother, Pamela Nisevich Bede, offers creative ways to keep your family (and you) satisfied and entertained while traveling. • Who cares if we’re there yet? Avoid hearing “Are we there yet?” by packing plenty of entertaining options for little travelers. In addition to today’s technological offerings, think back to what kept you occupied while sitting in the backseat. Equip your pint-sized passengers with books and travel board games, and play no-equipment-needed games, such as license plate bingo, I spy, or 20 questions. • Energy to burn. You’ve got their minds exercised now, but what about their bodies? Do a little research ahead of time and plot your stops at rest areas that have green space.

nitely make the car ride more peaceful. • Plan ahead. There’s nothing worse than being buckled in the car for hours with nothing healthy to snack on. For your next trip, avoid feeling trapped by packing all-natural, healthful snacks such as those from Gourmet Nut. They combine great flavor and healthy ingredients in a line of Gourmet On the Go snack mixes, such as Mega Omega and Almond Cranberry Crunch. They are full of protein-containing nuts and antioxidant-packed, fiber-filled dried fruits sure to please the pickiest passenger. • Drink up. Make sure you and your family stay hydrated during road trips by packing refillable water bottles for the long ride. Visit your local dollar store to stock up on different colored water bottles to assign to each person. If you’re feeling crafty, have your kids decorate their own bottles with markers, stickers, puffy paint and anything creative from the craft store. Your family will not only enjoy drinking water from their own personalized bottle, but everyone will be proud of their handiwork.

(BPT) — It’s common knowledge that children should eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, consuming all the nutrients needed to grow up strong. Many adults don’t know that it’s just as crucial to continue those healthy habits throughout adulthood and well into the “golden years.” Regardless of age, we should all make nutritious and sensible choices to promote peak physical and mental performance. Build strong bones Experts say the human body begins to lose bone mass at about age 30. That’s why it’s important to get plenty of calcium to keep bones strong, along with vitamin D, to help your body absorb calcium. Good sources of calcium include green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, okra and collard greens. A convenient and delicious way to take in more calcium is to incorporate an Emerald Smoothie into your daily routine. Simply blend pine-

apple, celery and spinach with soy milk and ice in a Vitamix 7500. This quick and easy concoction will give your diet an extra boost of essential nutrients. Sharpen the mind Making wholesome choices helps keep your brain fit. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in oily fish like sardines and salmon, as well as flaxseed and walnuts, have been linked to improved cognitive function and reduced risk for certain diseases. Eating fish regularly is one way to get enough omega3s. If you’re not a seafood fan, numerous types of fish oil capsules are available at drug stores. Avocados also boast omega-3s, as well as monounsaturated fat, which can help lower cholesterol and improve circulation. Avocado provides a rich flavor and texture perfect for nearly any sandwich, as well as dips, smoothies and even desserts. Antioxidant-rich blueberries are another mindboosting addition to any

diet. Considered a “super food,” these berries contain properties that have been linked to better brain health, improved motor skills and a sharper memory. To increase your berry intake, try a fruit salad for lunch or whip up a fresh berry sorbet for dessert. Nourish your nervous system Vitamin B12 is vital to your well-being. It can aid your body in producing red blood cells, properly developing nerve cells and preventing anemia. This vitamin can be found naturally in animal products, such as fish, meat and eggs. Steamed clams and lean beef are some of the best sources of Vitamin B12. Those maintaining a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle should consider a supplement or foods specially fortified with B12, including certain breakfast cereals or soy products. Stay hydrated Water is essential for your body. It keeps you hydrated, regulates body tempera-

ture and flushes waste. As we age, our sense of thirst may not be as effective, causing some older adults to be dehydrated but not feel thirsty. The average adult requires six to eight glasses of water each day, so a good rule of thumb is to have one glass at each meal and at least one glass in between meals. Almond milk, soy milk and whole-food juices, made by blending whole fruits and vegetables in a high-performance blender like a Vitamix, can also keep you hydrated and satiated. When reaching for a thirst quencher, try to avoid sugary drinks such as soda and processed fruit juice, which add calories without much nutritional value. Aging is inevitable, however, you can build a stronger body, mind and soul at any phase in life. All it takes is knowledge, motivation and follow-through to keep yourself healthy and full of energy for years to come.

The nation’s most deadly disease (BPT) — Few people understand just how much a threat cardiovascular disease (CVD), or heart disease, can be. Consider this: heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world. Cardiovascular disease claims more lives each year than cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease and accidents combined. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 71 million American adults (33.5 percent)have high LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol and only one out of every three adults with high LDL cholesterol has the condition under control. While heart disease is truly dangerous, in many instances the disease is preventable. You may have heard concerns over high cholesterol levels. Elevated cholesterol is among the

leading risk factors for CVD. Living a healthy lifestyle that incorporates good nutrition, weight management and getting plenty of physical activity can play an important role in lowering your risk of CVD, according to the American Heart Association. If you’re interested in reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease, these tips can help. • Move your body. Exercise not only reduces your bad cholesterol levels, it can also increase your HDL, or good cholesterol, levels. The exercise need not be strenuous to enjoy the benefit either. Get a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps a day. A 45-minute walk can help you reach your goal. • Cut the saturated fats. Saturated fats have long been linked to high choles-

terol levels. As you prepare your next meal, use canola oil or olive oil instead of vegetable oil, butter, shortening or lard. • Opt for fish. You don’t have to become a vegetarian to achieve a healthy cholesterol level; you just have to make smarter meat selections. Fish and fish oil are loaded with cholesterol-lowering omega-3 acids. The American Heart Association recommends fish as your source for omega-3s and eating fish two or three times a week is a great way to lower your cholesterol. • Avoid smoking. Smoking has been linked to many health concerns and research shows that smoking has a negative impact on good cholesterol levels and is also a risk factor for heart disease. Heart disease accounts

for one in three deaths in the United States and many cases of the disease are preventable through healthy choices. There is a clinical research study being conducted to try to help with this disease. The Fourier Study, sponsored by Amgen, is a clinical research study to find out if an investigational medication may reduce the risk of future heart attacks, strokes, related cardiovascular events and death in individuals with a prior history of heart disease. The study is investigating a different approach to reducing LDL cholesterol or “bad” cholesterol. To learn more about how you can take part in The Fourier Study, call 855-61-STUDY or visit HeartClinicalStudy.com.

Financially fit: Steps to get a handle on your credit (BPT) — After countless hours spent holiday shopping, you finally finished. Now, you’re faced with the credit card payments as you roll into the new year. While it may have been difficult to keep your finances - particularly your credit cards - top of mind amid the dash from store to store, those payments aren’t going anywhere. Managing your credit can seem like a daunting task - but it doesn’t have to be. Even if you’ve blown your budget and maxed out your cards, you can still take control of your credit and become financially fit in 2014. Here are five things you

should do right now to help get your credit back on track and sustain your financial reputation all year long: • Review your credit report. Start with taking a comprehensive look at what’s there, good and bad. Make sure you thoroughly review your report for any errors or mistakes, especially after the holidays. Tools like AnnualCreditReport. com let you check your report annually for free. It’s also a good idea to check your credit score to see if it’s dropped and to give you a basis for comparison moving forward. Resources such as Credit.com allow you to

easily pull your score. • Know what you owe. Tally up those balances and determine your debt to credit ratio - that is, the amount of money you owe on your cards versus your available credit, which accounts for approximately 30 percent of your credit score. If you’re using more than half of your available credit, this will likely lower your credit score. This means that if you have three credit cards with a combined limit of $10,000, your total balance should be below $5,000. • Be sure to pay your bills on time and at more than the monthly minimum. Sure,

it’s intuitive, but simply paying your bills on time accounts for about 35 percent of your credit score. Start with your holiday shopping bills and make sure that at least the minimum required balance is paid - even if you can’t pay them in full.- Also, pay more than the minimum payment every month to pay down your balance faster and decrease interest charges. • Pay off the card with the highest interest rate first. These are the cards that are costing you the most, so paying them off ahead of a card with a lower interest rate will save you more money in the long run.

5 NEWS Five simple steps to being a great pet owner OSCEOLA SENTINEL-TRIBUNE

(BPT) — Brushing your teeth and getting dressed in the morning are among the daily routines that are second nature to humans. But you may not always remember that your pets need regular care too - like avoiding potentially harmful table scraps, being protected from pesky fleas and ticks, keeping the sensitive pads of their paws safe from ever-changing weather conditions, and getting regular veterinary care. The following are five, simple steps to help keep your pets healthy and happy from Cristiano von Simson, DVM, MBA, director of Veterinary Technical Services, Bayer HealthCare, Animal Health Division, and proud dog owner. 1. No table scraps What can be better than a gathering with family and friends around good food

- whether a barbecue, the cornucopia of a Thanksgiving feast, or all the wings and nachos that accompany a big Sunday football game? According to Dr. von Simson, although you may be tempted - and your dog or cat may beg - remember to stop yourself before giving your pet a table scrap, leftover or bone. “You may make him happy for the moment, but it could create serious digestive problems for him in the long run,” he says. “So instead of sharing human food, give him an appropriate pet treat.” 2. Pest prevention You don’t like to be bitten by pesky bugs - well, neither does your fourlegged friend. While you may know that fleas and ticks may cause misery and disease for your pets, you may not know that these parasites can be active year-

round, waiting for their chance to attack and feed on your dog or cat. Continuous protection against fleas and ticks is, therefore, an essential part of pet ownership. But it’s not always easy to remember to use a flea and tick preventive each month. See what several pet owners think about trying to remember to keep their pets protected at www.youtube.com/ watch?v=7rNCvUgQprQ. “Now, you can avoid the hassle of remembering to apply a monthly flea and tick topical by using Seresto, a convenient flea and tick collar that offers the performance you expect from a monthly topical, but in an easy-to-use form that kills fleas and repels and kills ticks on cats or dogs for eight months,” said Dr. von Simson. You can learn more about Seresto at

www.Seresto.com. 3. Protect their paws Do you wear shoes when jogging on hot asphalt - a no-brainer, right? What about boots when it snows? But did you ever stop to think that your pet’s feet need protection from the elements, too? It is important to keep the pads of their feet cool in sweltering weather, which is why walks in the evening or early morning are best. And during winter, be sure to protect their feet from snow; sled dogs wear protective booties for a reason. 4. Don’t forget the water A summer run on the beach, a fall trek through the woods and blazing your own snow trail are all activities that not only make you thirsty, but your pet, as well. So when you pack a water bottle for the day, don’t forget to bring your pet’s water

Four simple tips for designing an on-trend home for 2014 (BPT) — The new year will usher in a new era of home decor by welcoming an “anything goes” attitude as designers mix old with new; DIY and high-end; as well as rustic and sleek to create eclectic, one-of-a-kind looks that are just as personal to the homeowner as they are unique. “We’re seeing a lot of flexibility in the way people approach design throughout their homes; a trend we think will continue to grow in the coming year,” said Judd Lord, lead industrial designer for Delta Faucet Company. “People are learning that high-end design doesn’t always equate to perfectly matched pieces. In fact, many well-appointed homes achieve a seamless look by employing a variety of design principles and influences.” While achieving this aesthetic may seem incredibly simple, it can be easy to go overboard when blending multiple patterns, accents and colors all under one roof. Follow these simple tips to create a well-appointed home. Incorporate the “new” neutral

Tranquil tones - especially white - offer a timeless backdrop against pops of vibrant colors and eclectic furnishings to create a space that’s visually interesting without being overwhelming. In the kitchen, glass front appliances in a cool white finish are especially prevalent in niche, high-end markets, but you can also achieve this look by having walls and cabinets painted or refinished in a variation of this hue. Installing creamy white fixtures can also help bring this aesthetic home in a different way. The contemporary Brizo Solna kitchen faucet is offered in a soothing matte white finish and also incorporates SmartTouch Technology, allowing the faucet to be turned on and off with a simple tap of the hand, wrist or forearm, to better assist you in the kitchen while also helping to keep your faucet looking clean. Keep your technology incheck Speaking of technology, innovation has infiltrated nearly every area of the home. Add smart features in areas that work best for your family, while being

sure to keep things simple in parts of the home where technology may not always be desired. An electronic thermostat, like the Nest thermostat, which can be operated remotely outside of the home and gets to know your family’s unique heating and cooling preferences, can help increase your home’s overall efficiency. Conversely, other high-tech gadgets, such as an umbrella dryer, may not be as practical for everyone. Be selective in what you choose to bring into your home and focus on investing in tools/appliances that will benefit the whole family to help keep your space from feeling too cluttered or messy. Punctuate your space sparingly With neutrals expected to dominate the color landscape, there’s a growing interest in incorporating bold patterns throughout the home, whether isolated on an area rug or highlighted in the tiles on your kitchen backsplash. Bold accent colors, such as skydiver blue, lemon zest and even stark black are also becoming more prominent and will

add intrigue to muted palettes. Be selective in what elements you want to stand out and incorporate patterns and bright colors sparingly to add visual interest and depth. A beautiful herringbone pattern in your wood floor, for example, could be lost if you choose to cover it with an extremely lively area rug. Add timeless glamor with metallic accents While pulling inspiration for your home from the pages of today’s magazines will help ensure your decor is on trend, also consider building in some timeless accents to help ensure your space is designed to last. Unlike specific fabrics, colors or wood stains, metallic fixtures and accents will remain stylish through multiple generations. Chrome is currently the most popular finish, however, brass and gold can help enhance a home’s warmth. Experiment with a variety of brushed, polished and distressed finishes to find the style you like best, and remember, it’s OK - and even desired - -to mix and match metals within the same room.

Keep your hair shiny and bright this year (BPT) — Holiday festivities may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can slack on hair care. Starting each day with a great ‘do can help you face winter challenges looking your best. Mark Townsend, Dove celebrity stylist, offers these tips to help you create fabulous hair styles that last day and night. Moisturized hair is the foundation for every style - During the cold winter months, hair tends to become dry, dull and limp. Moisturizing your hair is crucial to getting any beautiful style. “I am a firm believer that using the right shampoo and conditioner to start your beauty routine is overlooked by many women,” said Townsend, whose clients include many of

today’s leading Hollywood stars. Townsend recommends you start your hair care routine with a product like Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. Make your hair sparkle — Adding a sparkly headband to your hairstyle - whether you have short or long hair, wear it up or down - is an easy and affordable way to dress up your look. “I love when women become a little more daring during winter,” Townsend said. “One way they do this is by trying new hair accessories.” Adding a sparkly hair pin, barrette or headband can complement a range of styles, dressing up even the most traditional looks. Using a hair pin or barrette is a perfect way to add extra glamour to your

bowl, too. “Your pet will be grateful for a drink of clean water, not to mention properly hydrated,” said Dr. von Simson. 5. Get an annual checkup Just as annual check-ups are essential for keeping us healthy, regular visits to the veterinarian are vital to the health and well-being of your pet. You may think, “My pet looks fine, and has no symptoms, so why should I take her to the vet?” But since your pet can’t really talk, she can’t tell you when she is ill, especially if the “she” is a cat. In fact, according to the Bayer Veterinary Care Usage Study III: Feline Findings, a nation-

ally representative study of feline owners, 52 percent of cat owners indicated they had not taken their cats to the veterinarian in the past year. “Because cats age differently than humans - with the first two years of a cat’s life equal to 24 years of a human’s life, and each successive year equivalent to four human years - annual examinations are essential to helping keep cats healthy and preventing potentially serious disease,” said Dr. von Simson. Remember, pets need us, just as much as we need them. For more tips on pet care, visit www.petparents. com.

She hit two 3-pointers right away and a nice little jump shot to get her going. We shot 50 percent in the first half, which was something we haven’t done this year. All of a sudden, we knock a couple shots down and we’ve got some confidence and we’re able to play a complete game.” Clarke led 25-13 at halftime.

We’ll take 10 defensive rebounds out of her every night.” One of the keys in the game, Zoske said, was limiting Martensdale-St. Marys to one shot per possession, which helped allow the Lady Indians to get out into transition. “We did the best job we have all year of getting points in transition,” he said. “I think we had eight or 10 in transition. We held Martensdale-St. Marys 13 points in the first half. That’s probably the best defensive half we’ve had all year.”

NEW VIRGINIA

Stepping out By Pastor Tom Murr

Woodburn Methodist Church

There have been some great football bowl games. I enjoyed watching some of the fast action and never knowing what was going to happen next. But I am about “football-ed out.” One clear fact that stands out in these games is you better keep your focus on every moment. You leave the game for a moment, something happens and you hear the loud cheering and the exciting voice of the announcers. You rush back to see what you missed. There was an exciting moment after Jesus fed the 5,000. He sent his disciples to cross the lake in boat. Then, Jesus goes to a quiet place to pray and receive help from His Father. Them we have exciting moment: Matthew 14: 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. 27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” While we may not be out on Lake Superior with 17-feet high waves, there are times that storms arrive in life crashing into our normal moments. When the quarterback says, “hike”, there is violent storm that takes place as players go across the line hitting each other. You need courage to take a hit when you weigh just 175 pounds. It takes real courage to across the line on “hike.” In the midst of this storm the disciples saw something on the waves coming toward the boat. In that storm, there appeared to be something coming at them on the waves. Talk about fear. But, Jesus immediately said to them, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Jesus is saying, take courage because it is I, God in the flesh. There is no reason to be afraid when you trust in me. If you are a 175-pound wide receiver in the middle of the football field about catch a pass and be hit as hard as possible, well, it takes courage to catch the ball. You need courage. You say, “I am not courageous.” It is not courage in yourself that you need. You need the courage from knowing who God is. He is good, He loves you and He sacrificed greatly for you. If you know these things in the midst of the storms in this, the journey of life will help you to have the courage to take the next step. The next step in this storm was for the disciple Peter. “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” Jesus said. Then, Peter got down out of the Elders & Deacons meeting. OSCEOLA FULL GOSPEL CHURCH, 700 Colorado, Osceola, IA. Pastor James R. Sheesley.

boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. This was like a someone daring you to do something without thinking. Peter got out of the boat and started walking toward Jesus. All was good, until Peter thought about the waves and the wind blowing. He knew where he was at — people don’t walk on water! With those thoughts in his mind, he took his focus off of Jesus and thought about what was going to happen. It was then he started to sink in the lake. Think back a moment to that 175-pound wide receiver in the middle of the football field. He was going to get hit in a moment. His total focus was watching the football get into his hands. If he looked over shoulder at the 225-pound corner back running to hit him, he lost focus as the football went through his hands. Yeah, he still gets hit anyway! We know in our life that storms will come. We need to grow with faith and courage so we can take the next step of faith with the Lord. We remain focused on Him. Oh, the storm will come, but we will need faith to face the storm with Him. Elizabeth Gilbert wrote, “Faith is belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark.” In reality, this will be hard. There is a story of a man who was rockclimbing and slipped, but was able to grab on to a branch that was sticking out of the side of the cliff. It is 100 feet up and 100 feet below him, and there seems to be no way out. He cries out for help, “Is there anyone who can help me?” All of the sudden a great voice from heaven cries out, “I’ll help. Let go, I’ve got you.” The man looks down and then up and doesn’t see anything. Then he cries out, “Is there anybody else?” It is hard to take that step out of the boat or be the wide receiver in the middle of the football and catch the ball. Why is it so hard? It is hard because dependence on Jesus appears risky. Slide. We like to see what we are depending on. We are a people who live in visible society and not by faith. This is our “comfort zone,” but Jesus asked Peter and us to take step out of our boat. It takes courage and faith to let go and take a step forward with Jesus on the “water.” I invite you to consider your focus in the new year. We are all the wide receiver in the middle of the football, and we are going to get “hit” by something that is not in “comfort zone” this year. Will we catch the storm with courage and faith in the words of Jesus, “Come?” Are you stepping out in 2014? de Cultos: Domingo - 10:30 a.m., Escuela Dominical. 11:30 a.m., Servicio.

On September 4, 2013, the leak was traced to the property at 120 South Jackson Street's service line. Communication with the homeowner was held and the repairs were made by Bud Jones Construction.

Discussion was held regarding funding options for the solar bees and assistance that is available within the community including the Clarke County Development Corporation Pillars Granting Program which is a 50/50 match. After further discussion, it was determined that the Pillars Grant would be the best source of funding and the community including county customers would benefit from the solar bees. Board member Crawford motioned to authorize staff to move forward with applying for the Clarke County Development Corporation Pillars Granting Program for the purchase of two solar bees to be placed in West Lake and O'Hair seconded the motion.
