CCRC wins right to use eminent domain in reservoir project By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

It’s been many years in the making, but Clarke County Reservoir Commission (CCRC) finally had its day in court. On April 8, Judge Sherman W. Phipps of the Fifth Judicial District of Iowa ruled CCRC’s ongoing Squaw Creek Watershed project is for a public use, public purpose or public improvement as

defined in the Iowa Code. Therefore, CCRC may use the power of declaratory judgment and eminent domain in the reservoir project. Declaratory judgment is a court review for acquiring land for a public project. It authorizes CCRC to purchase land from voluntary sellers and exercise eminent domain for involuntary sellers within the area of the watershed project. Eminent domain is the government’s power to take private property for

public use by a state. “I’m excited because it’s an indication that we can now proceed with our process,” said Osceola Mayor Fred Diehl, who also represents the city of Osceola on the CCRC. What is the project? CCRC’s ongoing reservoir project could provide a water supply for Osceola and Southern Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) with an 816-acre lake, which could provide 2.2 million gallons

of water per day. West Lake, the current water source, doesn’t meet the needs of Clarke County and SIRWA. The total project cost for the reservoir in the CCRC Squaw Creek Watershed is estimated at $37.6 million. Funding for the project includes many sources, especially funding from the localoption sales tax. Financially feasible According to court documents, Scott Stevenson, a public finance

banker and senior vice president with D.A. Davidson and Co., testified in the court proceedings. Stevenson’s job involves analysis of feasibility of proposed financing for public projects. Stevenson analyzed CCRC’s reservoir project financial plan and testified the commission shows funding sufficient to pay for the project. Please see EMINENT DOMAIN, Page 4

Sometimes, the healthier choice is easy to see. Fruits and vegetables instead of cookies and candy. Broiling food instead of deep frying it. Sometimes, people need a little more help with overall healthy living, and that is one reason American State Bank is taking an initiative with offering its employees a wellness program. “What I realized, in our bank, is we’re all getting older and we need to be

Workers with Solar Bees work on the installation of the two Solar Bee units at West Lake April 9.

What’s the buzz? Two Solar Bee units installed at West Lake By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

Solar Bees are buzzing at West Lake. On April 9 and 10, two Solar Bee units were installed into the lake. “They’re trying to concentrate up around the intake (areas) going into the plant,” said Osceola Water Superintendent Brandon Patterson. Solar Bees, which look like pumps or fountains that disperse water, are solar powered and placed in lakes to provide long distance circulation, which helps control harmful blue green algae blooms, reduces taste and odor issues, improves fish habitats and overall water quality.

Algae problem West Lake, the drinking water source for Clarke County and Southern Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) currently has algae problems, and they start with the annual spring rains. The months of drought from the past two years has intensified the algae situation. The water department has looked at different types of treatments, but with Clarke County Reservoir Commission’s ongoing Squaw Creek Watershed lake project, Patterson said something long term and costly for West Lake might not be the best option. Cost effective “Anytime we can attack water qual-

ity issues without the addition of more chemicals, it’s more cost effective for the water works and better for the environment,” Patterson said. The total cost of the Solar Bees project is $108,973. A Clarke Community Development Pillars Grant/Lakesido Casino and Resort funding will contribute $35,000. SIRWA will also cover 15.7 percent of the project’s cost. “Obviously, we’re covering the balance of it,” Patterson said. Up next?

Spaghetti dinner planned to raise funds for FCCLA students Clarke FCCLA chapter, along with more than 500 members from FCCLA chapters across the state, attended the Iowa FCCLA State Leadership Conference March 24-25. State leadership conference is an opportunity for Iowa FCCLA members to celebrate the past year of hard work on various projects, as well as develop their leadership skills with members from around the state. The 2013-2014 yearlong theme was “Treasure the Past, Transform the Future.” Outstanding leadership was demonstrated through participation in STAR events, national programs and peer education by students in grades seventh through 12th. STAR events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) are competitive events where members are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, career preparation and leadership. The members receiving the highest score in each event category qualify to move onto the National STAR event competition held at the 2014 National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Members from the Clarke chapter received the following medals in their respective categories: Samaria Parada received a silver in entrepreneurship Cassidy Bierbrodt received a gold in leadership

Sofia Contreras and Dania Echveste received a gold in illustrated talk. Bierbrodt, Contreras and Echveste not only received gold, but they earned the highest points in their categories, making them state champions. They will compete in San Antonio this July. To raise money to attend the conference, Clarke FCCLA chapter will be hosting a spaghetti dinner Thursday, April 24, in the high school cafeteria. Serving will begin at 5 p.m. and end at 6:45 p.m. before the middle school and high school band concert. Dinner will include spaghetti, sides, drink and a dessert for $5 per person. FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America), formerly FHA, teaches students financial literacy, health and nutrition, career preparation and early childhood development skills through Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA is a unique organization because its programs are planned and run by student members. It is the only student-led organization with the family as its central focus. FCCLA has more than 220,000 members and nearly 7,000 chapters in 50 state associations, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than 10 million youths since it was founded in 1945.

OBITUARIES

OSCEOLA SENTINEL-TRIBUNE

As a young boy, Eric loved to play outdoors; he was always the good guy, making sure the bad guys never won! He had toy guns that he used to pretend to “shoot the bad guys,” and sometimes he would use sticks as guns. He loved being outside so much, instead of coming inside to take a nap, he would stretch out on the hood of a car and sleep. Eric and his friends often recall the time when they would ride down the stairs in sleeping bags; they sometimes would put the dog, Noot, in the sleeping bag and slide him down the stairs. Noot would come out of the sleeping bag ready to play again and again. Eric joined the Cub Scouts in 1993 with his friends, and progressed from Tigers all the way through Webelos. Scouting gave Eric a chance to be outside, spend time with friends and with his dad. Raymond often recalled the time during Eric’s Winter Camping Badge trip when the boys and their fathers slept outside in sleep-

ing bags. Raymond woke up hot because Eric had uncovered himself during the night and thrown extra covers on his dad. Eric was cold, rolled up in a ball, so Raymond covered up his son. This story was indicative of Eric’s care for others, and his willingness to put his own needs aside for others. Eric had many talents and interests. He was an artist and drew many pictures of characters. He also liked to work on cars, and learned a lot by working alongside his dad and his friends. Eric was a fan of Mixed Martial Arts, too, and spent plenty of time over the years mock-fighting with his friends and his sister, Amanda. He even had an opportunity to compete in a cage match in Des Moines. Eric referred to himself as a ‘geek’ because of his interests in roleplaying characters from “Star Trek” and “Star Wars.” He loved roleplaying fantasy games with his friends, who say they’ll never forgot the night when one of his friends said loudly, “I have no useful skills.” It became an ongoing joke,

In his late teen years, Buck’s family moved to Weldon, where they had a mechanic shop at the Weldon Corner, which they later moved to town. Buck became a wellknown mechanic throughout the racing community, which lead him to welding jobs at Solars Aircraft and Massey Ferguson, both in Des Moines. He retired from manufacturing in 1980. This gave him time to reopen the mechanic shop in Weldon, where he continued for several years. In 1954, Buck married Mary Lou Hoffman. They lived in Weldon for many years. Later, in 1970, Buck married Kathryn Pearcy.

Buck was a member of Weldon First Christian Church, Weldon Masonic Lodge and supported St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

According to court documents, “While (Stevenson) acknowledged that actual construction costs, interests rates and sources of funding might change before the project was actually completed, he still expressed the opinion that the commission will be able to finance the total costs of the project and that it is a feasible plan.” Defendants offered no evidence to contradict Stevenson’s testimony, court documents state. In court proceedings, R. Dan Lovett, a licensed professional engineer, testified the Squaw Creek Watershed, which is located in northern Clarke County, is still the least costly alternative. Recreational purposes? A major issue in the reservoir project is the concern of a government agency taking private land for recreational use and purposes. Officials stated in court documents the Clarke County Water Supply Plan — Environmental Impact Study dated May 2011 recites the development of “a high quality public recreation area that will fill a portion of the area’s unmet demand for waterbased recreation” as a purpose for the project. However, Mark Duben, a licensed professional engineer, made “it clear that water-based recreational uses had been eliminated from and were

If the public notices any unusual activity in or around the lake because of the Solar Bees, they should call Osceola Water Works or Osceola Police Department.

Smile this Mother’s Day (BPT) — Did you know the act of smiling can impact both how you look and how you feel? Sets a positive example It’s important that mothers recognize the beauty in themselves in order to set positive examples for their daughters. All women can recapture the elation they felt when they looked at their reflection as a young girl and pass that feeling on to the next generation. Improves levels of happiness Studies show that smiling is effortless

and immediate. It has been proven that smiling can actually make you happier.

Not letting go By Chuck DeVos

Lead Pastor LifePoint Church

Some years ago, on a hot summer day in south Florida, a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house. In a hurry to dive into the cool water, he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks and a shirt as he went. He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore. His father, working in the yard, saw the two as they got closer and closer together. In utter fear, he ran toward the water, yelling to his son as loudly as he could. Hearing his voice, the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn to swim to his father. It was too late. Just as he reached his father, the alligator reached him. From the dock, the father grabbed his little boy by the arms just as the alligator snatched his legs. That began an incredible tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the father, but the father was much too passionate to let go. A farmer happened to drive by, heard his screams, raced from his truck, took aim and shot the alligator. Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the little boy survived. His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious attack of the animal and, on his arms, were deep scratches where his father’s fingernails dug into his flesh in an effort to hang onto the son he loved. The newspaper reporter who interviewed the boy after the trauma asked if he would show him his scars. The

boy lifted his pant legs, and with obvious pride, he said to the reporter, “But look at my arms. I have great scars on my arms, too. I have them because my Dad wouldn’t let go.” You and I can identify with that little boy. We have scars, too. No, not from an alligator, but the scars of a painful past. Some of those scars are unsightly and have caused us deep regret. But some wounds, my friend, are because God has refused to let you go. In the midst of your struggle, He’s been there holding on to you. The Scripture teaches that God loves you. He wants to protect you and provide for you in every way. But sometimes, we foolishly wade into dangerous situations, not knowing what lies ahead. The swimming hole of life is filled with peril — and we forget that the enemy is waiting to attack. That’s when the tug-of-war begins — and if you have the scars of His love on your arms, be very, very grateful. He did not and will not ever let you go. Here’s what God says: Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:10) Right now you may feel as though an alligator has you by the legs and is about to devour you. But never forget that God has your arms,and He’s not letting go.

Did you know that eating one egg a day does not affect your risk for heart disease? And, egg yolks provide essential nutrients such as choline, which helps with fetal brain development and brain function in adults. Eggs provide high-quality protein, both in the egg white and egg yolk. Eating them at breakfast can help keep you full and focused until lunchtime. There are several types of eggs on the market, which can be confusing. The table below outlines the various types of eggs to help you determine the best option for you. Types of Eggs Types of Eggs What does it mean? Eggs in Their Shell The most common are white-and brown-shelled eggs. White-shelled eggs typically are from hens with white feathers, while brown-shelled eggs are typically from hens with brown feathers. 1. Organic In order to qualify for USDA organic certification, the hens are fed a special feed having ingredients that were grown without pesticides, and persistent chemical and commercial fertilizer. 2. Vegetarian (no animal by-products) Hens are fed a special feed containing ingredients of plant origin only. 3. Omega-3-Enhanced These eggs are created by including 10-20% of flax in the hen’s diet, which in turn results in these eggs being higher in omega-3 fatty acids than conventional eggs. 4. Pasteurized whole egg in shell Safest Choice Eggs are pasteurized whole eggs in the shell. Helps eliminate the risk of salmonella. 5. Vitamin-Enhanced These eggs contain slightly higher amounts of nutrients, as a result of being fed nutritionally enhanced diets (some of their nutrition may include vitamin E, folate, vitamin B-6 and B-12). 6. Cage-Free Eggs These eggs are from birds that are not raised in cages, but rather in an open barn. The hens have bedding material such as pine shavings on the floor, and are allowed perches and nest boxes to lay their eggs. Depending on the farm, they may still be close to many other hens, just not in cages. 7. Enriched These eggs are from hens raised in “enriched” or “colony” cage housing systems, which provide more space both on the floor and in height in order for the hens to be able to have more room to move. Enrichments include nesting boxes, perches, scratch pads and dust baths. Eggs Not in Their Shell (Processed Eggs) These are eggs which are broken, then pasteurized, before being packaged into liquid, frozen or dried form. They can be sold for commercial, home use and/or foodservice. No matter which type of egg you choose, you will get budget-friendly protein that is versatile enough for any eating occasion.

Carson signs with Clarke University By SCOTT VICKER

OST sports editor • svicker@osceolaiowa.com

Clarke senior Devon Carson will continue playing for Clarke after graduating this summer. Only the school colors and school mascot will change. Carson signed her National Letter of Intent on Friday to play softball for Clarke University next year. She’ll trade in the maroon and white, along with the Indian mascot, for blue and yellow to be a Crusader. “I am really excited,” Clarke High School head softball coach Lindsay Diehl said. “This year I’ve got quite a few kids going on and I hope to make that a tradition that when they leave here, they’re looking to go on and continue their softball career. It is a little bit of a bittersweet moment with this group of kids that I have. Signing letter of intent means that I’m nearing the end of being able to coach

them in their high school career.” Carson hit .345 with team highs in home runs (10) and runs batted in (45) last year for the Class 3A runner-up Lady Indians. Her decision came down to Kirkwood and Clarke University. “I was looking at Kirkwood for a while, but Clarke was a better fit for me and that’s where I wanted to go,” she said. “They have a great medical program up there.” Carson, who wants to be an orthopedic surgeon, said a brand new science facility was a big selling point for her. “They just built a brand new $13 million science facility, so that was a bonus,” she said. “And they have a cadaver lab, which me wanting to go into the medical field, that’s a good opportunity for me.” Carson said she had the opportunity to practice with the team when she went on

her visit, and found the practice to be very similar to her high school practices. “I spoke with the coach that’s over there,” Diehl said. “He seems like a really good guy that coaches a very similar style as I do. I think she’s going to be able to jump right into that. “I know some kids when they go to college, it’s a culture shock of playing college softball. It’s kind of like a job. She’s already in that mode. She’s willing to come in late at night or early in the morning. He’s trying to rebuild a program and I think she’s going to be a kid that will be a foundation for that.” But, before trading her Clarke High School playing days for Clarke University, Carson still has a few things she wants to accomplish. “I definitely want to go to state again,” she said. “That was an experience I’ll never forget. And I want to get another conference title.”

The Clarke boys tennis team stayed undefeated with victories over Ballard and Centerville, while the girls team suffered a loss to Ballard before bouncing back with a win against Centerville. The Indians made quick work of both Ballard and Centerville, winning by 9-0 sweeps in both matches. Colin Morris won 8-3 over Joe Kruger at No. 1 singles against Ballard on April 15, while Jared

Jamison won 8-5 at No. 2 singles over Nathan Carlin. Yahia Aly picked up an 8-3 win at No. 3 singles over Bryce Hull and Jacob Redman won 8-2 over Devin Wargo at No. 4 singles. Ali Aly was an 8-1 winner over Anthony Lettow at No. 5 singles and Holden Hewitt won 8-3 over Jacob Herrin at No. 6 singles. Morris and Jamison picked up an 8-2 win at No. 1 doubles, followed by an 8-3 win by the No. 2 doubles team of Yahia Aly and Redman. Ali Aly and Hewitt won 8-5 at No. 3

doubles. Against Centerville, Morris won 8-3 over Devon Glosser at No. 1 singles and Jamison rolled 8-2 over Michael Starcevich at No. 2 singles. Yahia Aly picked up an 8-3 win over Stevie Cochran at No. 3 singles, followed by an 8-4 win by Redman at No. 4 singles. Ali Aly shut out Brady Sweet 8-0 at No. 5 singles and Hewitt won 8-5 at No. 6 singles over Spencer Varner. Please see TENNIS, page 2B

off meet wise, Holly’s been able to get in some good conditioning. We don’t always run her in all three distance events, but she is strong and ready this year.” McKinney won all three events at the Tigerette Relays. She clocked a time of 2:32.98 in the 800 meters, setting a new personal best by four seconds. That time also moves her within two seconds of the Interstate 35 school record from the early 1990s. “She told me that she’s feeling good,” Oakley said. “I told her that she is looking good. Her mindset is free and she is going for it. Destiny Scar from Nodaway Valley has been a big push for Holly this year. She is a great competitor.” McKinney started her

night with a win in the 3,000 meters, running 11:17.40 to win the race by 15 seconds. She capped off her night with a win in the 1,500 meters, running 5:13.64. “Holly’s preseason goals were to lower these records and break the 800 record,” Oakley said. “She’s got a good chance to do so. Holly will look to qualify for state in these three events later in the season.” As a team, Interstate 35 finished fifth in the 17-team field with 67 points. PCM won the meet with 140 points. “We have some youngsters starting to make some noise on our team,” Oakley said. “Our veterans continue to lead us in the right
