Both parties withdraw new motions in Lakeside lawsuit hearing By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa. com

During a Friday hearing at Clarke County Courthouse, Judge John D. Lloyd granted the withdrawal of two pending motions in the ongoing lawsuit of Wilson v. Lakeside Hotel and Casino. The lawsuit was filed by Gail Ann Wilson, a former guest service manager at Lakeside, against Bob

Thursby, the general manager of Lakeside, C a r o l Eckels, the human resources Thursby manager, Lakeside Hotel and Casino and Affinity Gaming, the parent company of Lakeside. According to court documents, there was a joint

motion from both parties to withdraw Lakeside’s request for a special protective order and Wilson’s request to reconsider the orders to file under seal and to challenge Lakeside’s confidentiality designations. The lawsuit filed in Clarke County alleges Thursby made inappropriate sexual comments to employees and patrons, and Eckels had inappropriate sexual relationships with her subordinates and gave them more favor-

able treatment. The lawsuit states Wilson, a Native American, was fired in November 2011 “because of her race, national origin, sex and because she complained about what she believed to be unlawful employment practices.” Thursby and Eckels have denied all of Wilson’s allegations in a legal response to the lawsuit. Friday findings Court documents released Friday state the

Lakeside defendants filed a motion for a special protective order in the lawsuit Oct. 7. Along with the special protective order, the defendants filed a motion to “file it under seal,” which was granted by the court later in October. On Oct. 21, Wilson resisted Lakeside’s motion for a special protective order and also filed a motion to reconsider the orders to file under seal and to challenge Lakeside’s confidentiality

designations. A court hearing was set for Friday for all of the motions to be heard. Lakeside requested the hearing be closed, and Wilson resisted that request. A letter was sent to Iowa Newspaper Association by Frank Harty, attorney for Wilson, from the office of Nyemaster Goode, P.C., in Des Moines. Please see LAWSUIT, Page 4

Reason for the season Clarke County Toys for Christmas program to help families in need By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor

During the holiday season, it’s more important to give than to receive. Clarke County Toys for Christmas program is giving to those in need. “We try to have a coordinated program for this county,” said Dianne Riley, the program’s treasurer. How it began Clarke County Toys for Christmas first began in 1969 by Larry Van Werden, a local attorney who realized there were children who would not be having any Christmas presents. Since then, volunteers have organized and made the program an annual activity. Families who might need help with Christmas are identified by local organizations working together to have one program countywide. The program has no administrative costs. Riley said letters with applications were sent out to families that might

be in need this holiday season. Families may decide if they wish to participate. Children in the family need to be less than 16 years old. Each child will receive two items of clothing and two toys. Each family will receive a ham from Osceola Foods. There will also be food vouchers for families. Donating Churches, organizations and individuals donate cash or new toys and clothes for the program. They also adopt families and purchase the gifts for the children. If people want to donate to Toys for Christmas, they may donate cash, new toys and new items of clothing. Donations may be brought to the community center, which is located in Osceola Senior Center on the north side of the building. The donation period goes throughout December. “If they come in toward the end of December, then, of course, those would be used for the next year,” Riley said.

The urban-chicken issue will just have to roost for a little bit longer. The subject of people keeping chickens within city limits was on the agenda during a Nov. 19 Osceola City Council meeting, but the council decided to table the subject, for now. “If we approve this, somebody else is going to come in and bring donkeys to town, or whatever,” said Councilman Glenn Schaff. Original request During an Oct. 3 council meeting, there was a request

The Walmart Foundation has made a donation of $4,000 this year. “That’s wonderful,” Riley said. “We made an application this past summer for that.” Volunteering The program encourages volunteers to help wrap gifts. Wrapping will take place after Thanksgiving. Please see TOYS FOR CHRISTMAS, Page 4

to keep chickens at 306 N. Fillmore St. There is a city code regarding livestock. Part of the code says it is unlawful for a person to keep livestock, which includes chickens, within the city limits, except by written consent of the council. The council has debated the urban-chicken issue for the past couple of months. During the Nov. 19 council meeting, Ty Wheeler, city administrator/clerk, brought information on urban-chicken ordinances from cities across the country. Please see CHICKENS, Page 4

Tensions escalate during council meeting, mayor has to tell council they are out of order By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor •

Election season can be tense, but, sometimes, tensions spill over into postelection season. That happened during a Nov. 19 Osceola City Council meeting. During an interview with the Osceola Sentinel-Tribune, Ty Wheeler, city administrator/clerk, said there was concern with low-voter turnout in the Nov. 5 Osceola City Council and mayoral elections. Only 16 percent of the registered Osceola population voted in the election. Wheeler said he receives inquiries as to whether having two at-large and three ward seats on the city council is hindering voter turnout, and would it be better to have all at-large seats for SINGLE COPY PRICE: 75¢

the entire city to vote on? “I deal with questions all the time ... I have heard this Wheeler after every election since I’ve been back,” Wheeler said. Answering the question Since the inquiries directly related to city affairs, Wheeler said he looked up the rules in the Iowa Code and found council members can’t take it upon themselves to change at-large and ward seats. It has to be done by a petition and voted on by the public in a special or general election. Wheeler said an example of a petition and special election is Clarke County’s May special election held in Osceola, Woodburn and

Murray about whether to repeal the local option sales tax, which helps fund Clarke County Reservoir Commission’s lake project. Once Wheeler found the information, he sent out a follow-up to council members to brief them on his findings and how to answer the question in case any of their constituents ask. “It was more of a FYI,” Wheeler said. What happened next However, tensions escalated over the issue during the council meeting. During council reports, Councilman Glenn Schaff questioned Wheeler about who asked him to look into the issue. Wheeler said he had several inquiries, and has gotten many inquiries throughout

Carissa Jacobsen pins a sergeant badge on her husband Curtus Jacobsen during an Osceola City Council meeting Nov. 19. Osceola Police Chief Marty Duffus said the police department recently started the process of promotion for an officer to become a sergeant. During the meeting, Duffus presented newly-promoted Jacobsen, who has been with the department for nine years and was the department’s drug-recognition expert. Jacobsen’s family attended the council meeting to see him get recognized. Many members of the police department also attended the meeting. Duffus said there’s a tradition in law enforcement where spouses pin badges on a graduating police officer at the law enforcement academy. It’s the same tradition during a promotion pinning.

Your zzz’s count this holiday season (BPT) — Between squeezing extra activities into your schedule, finding time to bake holiday treats for your children’s classrooms and organizing a mini family reunion, the holiday season might be causing you a bit of stress. And, if that stress is affecting your sleep, you could be caught up in the vicious cycle of exhaustion causing stress and stress causing more exhaustion. By improving your quality and quantity of sleep, you are able to better handle all the stresses of the holiday season, and instead share in the fun activities at this time of year. You may be surprised at how many people experience issues sleeping. The Better Sleep Council reports that 66 percent of people 18 to 34 claim that they have trouble falling and staying asleep. That number drops to 53 percent of people ages 35 to 54, and just less than half of people 55 and older. If you fall into the portion of the population experiencing sleep troubles, consider these tips from the Better Sleep Council: • Build a good sleep environment — A good sleep environment is imperative when it comes to counting zzz’s each night. Start off with a quality mattress. “A mattress is an investment, not only financially but for

your health,â€? said Karin Mahoney, director of communications for the Better Sleep Council. “To help improve your sleep — and your quality of life — it’s a good idea to compare the mattress you are sleeping on to new models every five years and to consider replacing your mattress if it is more than seven years old.â€? • Sleep in your ideal bedroom — Light, noise and even temperature can disrupt sleep or make it difficult to fall asleep. Purchase lightblocking shades and install them in windows to keep the sun, streetlights and passing car headlights from shining in. Consider finding a source of white noise — such as a fan or sound machine producing soft ocean sounds — to cover up other noises happening in the house like the heater kicking in, or someone getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Finally, you should consider turning the temperature in the bedroom down a degree or two — or getting it as close as possible to the ideal bedroom temperature of 65 F. A cooler temperature can help the body relax and fall into sleep much more easily. Learn more about how to give yourself the gift of a better sleep this holiday season at BetterSleepCouncilOrg.

Footwear tips for older Americans (BPT) — Good physical balance can help older people avoid the debilitating and potentially life-threatening complications of a fall. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries among older people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. When selecting a shoe to improve balance, keep these guidelines in mind: • Put shoes to the test — the APMA’s 1-2-3 test. Step 1 — Press on both sides of the heel area to ensure the heel is stiff and won’t collapse. Step 2 — Bend the shoe to check for toe flexibility. The shoe shouldn’t bend too much in the toe box area, but it shouldn’t be too stiff and inflexible either. Step

3 — Try twisting the shoe; it shouldn’t twist in the middle. • Have your feet professionally measured every time you shoe shop. Natural aging and health changes can cause the size of your feet to change. Measure both feet — late in the day - and shop for the larger foot. • Bring the type of socks you plan to wear with the shoes and walk around the store in the shoes before you purchase them. • If you don’t feel comfortable or steady in the store, don’t buy them. Shoes should feel comfortable and supportive right away; if they don’t feel good right away, breaking them in won’t improve things.

LAWSUIT: Continued from Page 1

Harty wrote, “I thought the association would be interested in an attempt by Lakeside Casino to seal records in an employment litigation matter. What is especially troubling to me is that Lakeside has asked the court not just to seal all the records, but to close the hearing.” However, Friday’s hearing was open to the public and media. Joint motion Court documents state both parties “have reached an agreement and resolved the above-listed issues that had been presented to the court, with the exception of the issue regarding confidentiality designations, which the parties have agreed to continue to attempt resolution without the need

CHICKENS: for the court’s intervention at this time, and therefore, seek to withdraw certain motions.” According to court documents, Lakeside and Wilson jointly asked the court to maintain under seal any and all filings, regardless of who submitted the filings, only be available to be viewed, used and copied by the parties, counsel, court and authorized court personnel. Court documents state, “The continued sealing of these findings is not to be understood as an agreement or concession by either party as to the designation of such materials as ‘confidential’ under the protective order that has previously been entered in this matter.” A jury trial in the case has been scheduled March 3 in Osceola.

The distribution of gifts is Dec. 18 and 19. “Everything really, we hope, will be wrapped and ready to go by that Monday before the Wednesday,


Thursday distribution,” Riley said. Last year, 152 families with 399 children were helped through the program. Throughout the years, the program has helped as many as 180 families in a single year. “I suppose the goal, really, is always to help less, if you could, because, then, that means people are doing better. … We are happy to have anybody who wants to help us,” Riley said.

“If we’re going to have a problem, or think we’re going to have a problem, I think we need to change the ordinance,” said Councilman Dave Walkup. Walkup added, he is open to changing the ordinance, but thinks it’s a good idea to have neighbors “sign-off” with a person keeping chickens in their urban neighborhoods. Food movement Councilwoman Sarah Truitt read an excerpt from the information Wheeler presented to the council. She discussed how there is a growing local-food movement, and the importance of municipalities needing to take action on keeping chickens within city limits. “To me, it’s just a matter of do we want to deal with it and set the precedent, or are we going to deal with it on an individual basis?” Truitt said. “One of the

things I have heard over and over is we can’t make exceptions for some, and some rules for some people, and not for others. In my mind, I see an ordinance making the rules very clear for whoever’s interested in having chickens or not, and I don’t think it’s impossible to regulate it. I don’t think that’s above what our city can do.” Truitt said there are a lot more young people looking into being self-sufficient with their living and diets. “I think this is going to be a no-brainer in the future,” she said. “It’s just a matter of when we get on board in Osceola.” Mayor Fred Diehl clarified, if the council is going to do something about chickens, the livestock ordinance needs to be changed. Truitt said she doesn’t think 600 people are going to come to city hall with urban-chicken

requests. However, it could become more popular in the future. Staying relevant “I think that, as a community, our goal is to stay relevant with what people are doing and trending. I think it’s important,” she said. The council decided to have city staff put together an urbanchicken ordinance proposal and bring it back to a later council meeting for further discussion. Truitt said the city should look into having an animal-control position in the future. “I think there are quality-oflife issues that are being compromised because of the fact that we don’t have an animal-control person … but I don’t know that that’s within the budget in our future,” she said. “But, I think it’s something to consider if we expect to continue to grow and be a place where people enjoy living.”

the years with different elections, even dating back to when former Councilwoman Peggy Mateer was holding office. “Our last meeting, we had a concern that we only had 16 percent of our people who voted,” said Councilman Dave Walkup. “I guess, we could look at different ways to get them out to vote.” Again, Schaff asked Wheeler who authorized him to look the information up. Mayor Fred Diehl said he didn’t think it was an appropriate question to ask. Schaff replied that it was an appropriate question. “He (Wheeler) brought up a subject that should be discussed,” Diehl said. “It doesn’t mean he took any action. It doesn’t mean you took any action, and, so, therefore, if you discuss it, it doesn’t have any kind of authority one way or the other.” “Apparently, I don’t have any time, folks, to speak, so I’ll just shut up,” Schaff said. Diehl said Schaff could speak, but not dictate what could be discussed. “You already said it,” Schaff said.

Councilwoman Sarah Truitt said 84 percent of the population didn’t vote in the election, and she would like to think at least part of the 84 percent would have voted for her if she had been at-large. “If there is a petition in the future to have that changed, you will see me again, and I will be the one asking for it,” Truitt said. “So, I asked for him to get the information, along with other council people.” Schaff turned in his seat and addressed Truitt, “Are you the majority of this council?” Truitt, who sits directly next to Schaff, responded, “Oh no, I’m not Glenn, but it doesn’t take the majority to ask a question. Nothing is changing.” Out of order Throughout the discussion, the voices of council members were escalating, and Diehl had to step in and tell the council members they were out of order. Discussion on the issue ended there. However, as the meeting adjourned, Schaff said, “Thank you all for coming, next time I will have my piece to say.”

Three tips to prepare your car for winter (BPT) — As temperatures dip, it’s important to prepare your car for harsh winter weather. Not only can the elements be hard on your vehicle, but the chemicals that are used to fight the elements such as road salt and chemical compounds to melt ice are as well. Step 1: Check your windshield wipers Rule of thumb is that you should change your wiper blades every six months. This will ensure you have the necessary vision on the road to drive safely even in less than ideal weather conditions. Step 2: Protect your engine You may not think about what’s under the hood of your vehicle during

the winter months, but protecting your engine and the components that make your vehicle run is important. Premium synthetic lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple recommends using Purple Ice, a year-round radiator conditioner that will provide corrosion protection and is fully compatible with antifreeze. Step 3: Emergency road kit Take the time to pack an emergency kit that you can keep stored in your truck. It could be a lifesaver if you have to put it in use. Include a: flashlight, batteries, blanket, snacks, water, gloves, boots, first aid kit, ice scraper/ snow brush, jumper cables, road flares, white towel or window sign to indicate you need help.

4-H awards banquet held More than 150 4-Hers, family, friends and guests spent Sunday, Nov. 3, at the third annual 4-H awards banquet held at Clarke County Fairgrounds. Youths in 4-H spend their time volunteering in the community, working on projects to showcase at the county fair. The evening began with a meal prepared by Clarke County Cattlemen and 4-H and Youth Committee. Hannah Al-Mazroa, the state 4-H Youth Council representative, talked with members about getting involved in many areas of 4-H and encouraged them to participate in out of county opportunities. The 4-H Youth Council organized and presented all the awards throughout the evening. They started by introducing all the 4-H leaders and project volunteers. Each of these volunteers received a gift for their support to the 4-H program. The 4-H and Youth Committee was recognized for their help in implementing a balanced 4-H program for Clarke County that supports the mission of the Iowa 4-H Youth Development Program and serves in an advisory capacity to the ISU Extension and Outreach 4-H staff. They also introduced the Extension Council. This past year, the organization had 38 first-year members. This included all fourth-grade

students and any older youths whocompleted their first year as a member. Each member received a certificate, their firstyear member pin and a gift. Clover Kids, who are youths in grades kindergarten through third, were recognized. This program gives them the opportunity to belong to a 4-H club and participate in activities, as well as prepare them for joining a community club once they’re in the fourth grade. There were had 95 Clover Kids this past year. This year, there were seven 4-Hers who completed their 4-H record books. These individuals included Kaitlyn Boyer, Devin DeVore, Andrew Barnard, Adam Barnard, Nicole Barnard, Colton Hiatt and Rileigh Hiatt. Last year, 4-H was awarded one of the two $2,500 Monsanto Grants for Clarke County. The 4-H and Youth Committee had the responsibility of deciding how to spend the award. They decided to create what is called a Project Scholarship. This gives 4-Hers the opportunity to receive up to $100 to go toward a project the member must showcase at the Clarke County Fair. Applications may be filled out after the 2014 Clarke County Fair and will be awarded at next year’s banquet, giving the 4-Her a full year to plan and create their project. They will be

awarding up to $100 to a junior, intermediate and senior each year. Each year, a person or business is recognized who has given extended service to the 4-H program through leadership, citizenship and service. This year the “Friend of 4-H Award” went to Lynch Livestock. Clarke County 4-H Volunteers of the Year were awarded to Nancy Crabtree and Ronda Schrodt who organize and facilitate a dog obedience program each year. There 20 4-Hers who had perfect attendance at their club meetings. Clarke County has added two new special-interest clubs to its list — Robotics and Horse and Rider. There are five senior 4-Hers — Paul Queck, Dakota Matlage, Jarrod Coe, Jesi Johnson and Maci Snell. The group that made the 4-H Awards Banquet possible, the 4-H Youth Council, was also recognized. The evening ended with some prizes and a special quote selected by the Youth Council, “4-H is about more than just ribbons and awards. It’s about the people, the experience, the lifelong skills, the memories, and the county fair. It’s about being a role model, giving back and making the best better.”

Three Mustang seniors on INA all-state By LARRY PETERSON OST sports writer •

Coming off an 8-3 season, and 39-9 run over the past four years with two appearances in the EightMan final four at the UNIDome, the Murray football team this week boasts three all-staters. Three key seniors who were part of those four straight playoff seasons — including a runner-up finish in 2011 and semifinals a year ago — were named to the Iowa Newspaper Association selections announced today by a panel of sportswriters, assisted by members of the Iowa Football Coaches Association. The versatile Andrew Rider, who set or matched national records for touchdowns on punt returns and interceptions in addition to rushing for 1,557 yards, was named to the first team offense as the utility selection. The first team has a second Murray player in defensive lineman George Barber, who also started in the offensive line at center for the Mustangs. Named to the all-state second team defense is linebacker Sam Rockhold, who also played a key role offensively at tight end the past three seasons. Murray’s Rider, who suffered a broken arm late last year and played in the state semifinals with a cast, had a record-breaking senior season. The 5-10, 170-pound speedster scored a school-record 262 points on 43 touchdowns and two two-point conversions, averaging 14.2 yards every time he touched the

ball. Rider, unanimous alldistrict and special teams player of the year in the district, returned five punts for touchdowns this season (24.3-yard average), giving him 12 for his career for a national Eight-Man record. He also returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, tying a national record with seven career kick return TDs. Of his seven interceptions on defense, Rider returned four for touchdowns. He also ran for 29 touchdowns while compiling 1,557 yards on 155 carries. He finished his Murray career with 3,723 yards rushing (8.7 average) and 64 touchdowns. He had 98 touchdowns as a Mustang and 12 two-point conversions. “Andrew is the most complete football player I’ve coached in 15 years,” Murray coach Keith Shields said, “and our hardest worker in the weight room. All three of these (all-state) guys are among the best workers we’ve had in the weight room.” Shields said being selected the first-team offensive utility player fits Rider’s versatility. “Realistically, there really isn’t anything on the football field he doesn’t do well,” Shields said. “He does a little bit of everything offensively, running the ball, catching the ball, putting the ball in his hands on special teams.” Barber was dominant in the interior line throughout his senior season. The 6-3, 205-pounder collected 87 tackles in the interior defensive line, with nine quarterback sacks and 27 tackles for loss. He was

He’s played tight end and fullback on offense, second to former all-stater Cody Scroggie on many of the receiving records. Defensively he has played end and linebacker, filling the middle linebacker role this year. He’s also been the kickoff man and punter. This year the 6-1, 185-pounder had 111 tackles, including 16 for losses, with three interceptions. He also had 23 catches for 358 yards and nine TDs.

Indians searching for improvement Clarke girls fall in opener By SCOTT VICKER

OST sports editor •

Clarke head boys basketball coach James Larson wants to see improvement this year from his basketball team. But, he’s not going to throw out a number of games he’d like to see his team win. “Our goal is to be competitive in every game that we play, and become the best team that we can,” he said. “I’m not going to say we’re g o i n g to try to win this m a n y games. I Larson feel like that gives us a ceiling. I’m just going to say we’re going to become the best possible team.” After a summer of hard work, Larson expects his team to improve on last year’s 3-17 mark. The Indians return four starters from last year’s team in Colin Morris, Jared Jamison, Matt Blanchard and Brin Evins. “Colin, he averaged, I think, the most points for us last year,” Larson s a i d . “Took a lot of Morris s h o t s to do it, but he’s put in a tremendous summer

and I think he’s a different player. He’s going to come out and surprise people, I think. Jared Jamison comes back as a starting point guard. Him and Colin are probably going to have to do a lot of the ballhandling.” Senior Drew Wishon and junior Carlos Tamayo also return this year after seeing varsity playing time a year ago. The Indians will have to replace Dylan Diveney, who moved to Marshalltown after last season. Diveney netted 13.9 points per game last year and ranked second on the team in assists, while leading the Indians in steals, blocked shots and rebounding. “I think guys are willing to step up and take a challenge, because we’re going to have a new assists leader, a new rebound leader, a new blocks leader,” Larson said. “I think they’re kind of excited to step up and take that role.”

Fresh faces Larson said he expects to see a few new faces make an impact for the Indians this year. “We actually have a very strong freshman class,” he said. Troy Morgan will provide the Indians with a shooter, while Brandyne Olin and Grant Wishon bring strength and size. “Troy Morgan can shoot the ball better than anyone on our team, i think,” Larson said. “Brandyne Olin is probably 6-1, 6-2 and

170 — a solid kid — and he can push me around, so he’s got some muscle on him. Grant Wishon is 6-6 as a freshman. His height alone can help.”

Improvement But most of all, Larson is counting on his returning players to be improved after the hard work they put in over the summer. Larson said even though Morris was one of the team’s top players last year, he’s also shown some of the most improvement since last season ended. “Carlos Tamayo, he’s had a really good summer,” Larson said. “It’s really going to benefit him. Justin Adams has gotten better over the summer. Grant Wishon, he was an eighth grader last year, so we didn’t see much of him, but he’s gotten better over the summer, too. “I think we’ll be a surprise team this year,” he continued. “I hope people don’t count us out, or if they do, good for them, because I think we’re going to surprise a few people.” Larson also has a new assistant coach this year in former Clarke player Aaron O’Tool. “He has a good background,” Larson said. “He set a school record when he was here. His teams were very successful. I think coach O’Tool is going to add this extra intensity that keeps the kids going during practices.” Clarke opens the season Dec. 3 at Central Decatur.

Sports briefs College tennis A number of former Clarke tennis players are currently competing in college. Kelli Ehrhardt is currently a sophomore at Simpson College. During the spring 2013 season, Ehrhardt set a new school record for doubles wins with 16. In the fall

2013 season, she went 8-5 in singles play and 9-4 in doubles play, and was named the team MVP. Kylar McCann is a freshman at Grand View College. McCann went 4-2 in singles play and 5-1 in doubles play in the fall 2013 season. Breana Sitzman is a

sophomore on the Grand View College team. She finished with a record of 2-3 in singles and 0-4 in doubles in the fall 2013 season. Jason Ehrhardt is a senior at Buena Vista University. He is a team captain for the 2013-14 season. Buena Vista’s main season is in the spring.

Already playing without one of his starters because of injury, Clarke head coach Eric Zoske was dealt another blow just before his team opened the season Friday with a 56-42 loss to Earlham. Senior Devon Carson was already out while nursing a knee injury when sophomore Amanda Kindred tore her ACL during the junior varsity game prior to the varsity game. “I feel bad for Amanda,” Zoske said. “That’s always the worst thing in sports is seeing a kid get hurt. You can get over an elbow or a wrist or something, but when they grab that knee, you hope it isn’t the ACL, and it seems like it almost always is. She tore it and she’ll be out somewhere around six months.” Needing to add depth for the varsity game, Zoske turned to freshmen Vanessa Bakley and Sydnee Redman, who performed well in their time on the court. Redman scored six points and had two steals, while Bakley finished with two

points and one assist. “We kind of had to dig deep into our bench and recruit a couple of freshmen in Vanessa and Sydnee,” Zoske said. “When both Vanessa and Sydnee went in there, they did a good job. Not having Devon, that’s losing a lot of firepower.” Senior Libby Bemis stepped up and finished with a doubledouble to lead the Lady Indians in the loss. Bemis Bemis scored 11 points and grabbed 12 rebounds while dishing out four assists. Sophomore Baylie Balcaen also recorded a doubledouble in the loss with 10 points and Balcaen 11 boards, but got into foul trouble early. “She didn’t come out one second,” Zoske said about

Bemis. “I need to get her to shoot the ball a couple more times. She’s such a good player, and she’s so unselfish. It’s hard for her to have the mindset to shoot more. “Baylie did a decent job when she was in the game,” he continued. “She got in foul trouble. We just need to play a little smarter. Hopefully we can learn from this.” Carley Robins chipped in nine points and grabbed six rebounds. Senior Mackenzi Otto, playing basketball for the first time in three years, netted four points and had two assists. Clarke has a break until Dec. 3, when the Lady Indians travel to Central Decatur. Zoske said he hopes his team will have shed its jitters by that time. “First of all, Earlham is a pretty good team. They made it to state for a good reason,” he said. “It’s always good to play somebody else. We had jitters. These seniors we have now, they’re kind of used to being under the spotlight of Kylar (McCann), Kacey (Klemesrud) and Sarah (Pate). Now it’s theirs. It’s good to get going and see some of these girls step up.”

Experts warn of cyber threats during peak online shopping season (BPT) — Consumers often associate holiday shopping with long lines, crowded stores and overpriced goods. In recent years, many have turned to e-commerce as an easier alternative — holiday shopping without the headache. This year e-commerce sales are projected to reach $262 billion, a 13-percent increase over 2012. This growth is due, in part, to the rising popularity of online “shopping holidays” like Cyber Monday, which

is celebrated annually the Monday after Thanksgiving and accounts for more online sales than any other day of the year. Last year, Cyber Monday sales reached $1.46 billion — a record for online spending in one day. Despite the aforementioned dangers, many online shoppers are unaware of the risks associated with online shopping and don’t believe they’ll become one of the 556 million annual victims. Forty-eight percent

of smartphone and tablet users do not take even the basic precautions such as using passwords, installing security software or backing up files from their mobile devices. “As the popularity of online shopping continues to skyrocket, so do the opportunities for hackers to steal personal information,” says Bob Bunge, professor in the College of Engineering and Information Sciences at DeVry University and

consultant at the William Factory Small Business Incubator in Tacoma, Wash. “Online shoppers need to be aware of the risks associated with e-commerce and take proactive steps to protect themselves.” Bunge offers the following tips for consumers to protect themselves from cyber attacks: • Boost password strength: Weak and ineffective passwords enable identity theft. The first rule

of password construction is to go long. Short passwords can be uncovered by high-speed programs built to steal password combinations. • Ditch the debit cards: Debit cards are the least secure option for e-commerce purchases. PayPal and credit cards offer much better consumer protections including dispute resolution and fraud prevention. • Use the most secure network possible: Wired net-

works are always preferable to wireless. If a wired network is not an option, make sure to use a secure wireless network that requires an encryption key. Be especially wary of accessing public WiFi services at places like airports and coffee shops. • Don’t store personal finance information: Don’t store credit card details online. Storing any payment information online exponentially increases the probability of a cyber attack.

Woodburn Christian Church receives Pillar grant WOODBURN — Woodburn Christian Church received a Pillar grant this spring from Clarke County Development Corporation. The money from the Pillar grant was used for 50 percent of the cost of new windows and siding, with Woodburn Christian Church paying the other 50 percent and all of the installation cost. Woodburn Christian Church was established in the 1890’s. In 1970, the

church was rebuilt after burning down from a lightning strike. The new building included a full basement, which today serves as storm shelter for the area when needed. Woodburn Christian Church members extend gratitude for the cost sharing to Clarke County Development Corporation. The church has a 6 p.m. Christmas Eve service Dec. 24, which is located at 710 Pictured are members of Woodburn Christian Church. Maple St. in Woodburn.

God is the fix By Chuck DeVos

Lead pastor LifePoint Church

Cosmetic surgery has been popular for some time. People go to cosmetic surgeons wanting to look younger, older, wiser or like their favorite movie stars. Sadly, they sometimes come out looking like an altogether different person. We all like the idea of changing, of becoming something different than what we presently are. Starting over again. Reinventing ourselves. Experiencing a new beginning. Certainly, our culture is obsessed with change and selfimprovement. I heard about a woman named Shirley who was from Beverly Hills. One day, she had a heart attack and was taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital. While on the operating table, she had a near-death experience. She saw God and asked, “Is this it? Is my life over?” God said, “No, don’t worry. You have another 40 years to live.” Shirley figured that since she had another 40 years, she might as well make the most of it. Upon her recovery, she decided to stay in the hospital and have collagen shots, cheek implants, a facelift and liposuction — the works. She then had someone dye her hair. When she walked out of the lobby at Cedars Sinai, however, an ambulance speeding up to the hospital killed her. She arrived in front of God and said, “I thought you said I had another 40 years?” God replied, “Shirley! I’m so sorry, but I didn’t recognize you!” N. Dewey Osceola.

Here’s the problem: We recognize the need for change, but we work on the wrong part. We want to change the outside when the problem that needs changed exists on the inside. Plastic surgery, new hair styles and clothing might make us feel good for awhile, but it doesn’t last. So, what we really need to do is figure out what needs fixed, and fix that. If history has taught us anything, it’s taught us that it isn’t our hair that needs fixed, it’s our hearts. In fact, God has been saying the same thing for centuries. He tells us, “The human heart is most deceitful and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?” (Jeremiah 17:9) That sounds pretty bleak — a deceitful heart, a wicked heart. New clothes, hair, makeup, jewelry, toys or surgery isn’t going to fix the heart. Only God can do that. But here’s the great news: That’s exactly what He wants to do. Check out what the Bible says in Ezekiel 36:26, “I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you.” The best part is this: God wants to do this for you and it won’t cost you a thing. All you need to do is ask. So, the next time you’re thinking of updating your wardrobe style or your hairstyle, take a moment to consider changing your heart. That’s what needs it most. Oracion.

In the year of 1620 On a cold December day A hundred and two pilgrims Sailed into Plymouth Bay. Still wary from their voyage. Still facing winter's chill. They kept their sights on freedom With courage, work, and will. Pilgrims did not stop to think Of riches, fame, or glory While bravely playing starring roles In our new nation's story

Food safety for Thanksgiving – avoid the turkey trots Whether you’re the go-to grandma who always hosts Thanksgiving dinner or the first-time novice, preparing a holiday meal is an undertaking that requires planning, skill, patience, and most importantly, attention to food safety. Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) reminds Iowans to take special care when preparing foods for Thanksgiving. “When large gatherings like holiday-related meals happen, we typically hear about people getting ill with diarrhea and vomiting from foodborne illnesses,” said IDPH Medical Director Dr. Patricia Quinlisk. “Most of these illnesses are caused by foods that are improperly cooked or stored.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), foodborne illness affects 48 million Americans, causes 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths annually. Anyone, regardless of race, age, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status is at risk. People at the highest risk of becoming very sick from a foodborne illness are the elderly, children, individuals with a weakened immune system, and pregnant women. Fortunately, most people recover from foodborne illnesses without complications, but symptoms can last anywhere from hours to weeks. When preparing a turkey, be aware of four main safety issues: thawing, preparing,

stuffing and cooking to adequate temperature. Thawing: There are three safe ways to thaw a turkey - in the refrigerator, in cold water, or in a microwave oven. When thawing in the refrigerator, allow 24 hours of thawing time for every five pounds of turkey. Place the turkey in a container to prevent the juices from dripping on other foods. A thawed turkey can remain in the refrigerator for one or two days before cooking. When using a microwave, check the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of minutes per pound and the appropriate power level to use for thawing. Plan to cook the turkey immediately after thawing since some areas of the bird may become warm and begin to cook during microwaving. When thawing in cold water, allow 30 minutes per pound of turkey and change the water every 30 minutes. Be sure the turkey is in a leakproof plastic bag to prevent cross-contamination and to prevent the turkey from absorbing water, resulting in a watery product. A turkey thawed by the cold water method should be cooked immediately. Preparing: After working with raw poultry, always wash your hands, utensils, and work surfaces before they touch other foods. Stuffing: For optimal safety, cook the stuffing outside the turkey in a casserole dish; however, if you place

stuffing inside the turkey, do so just before cooking and use a food thermometer. Make sure the center of the stuffing reaches a safe minimum internal temperature of 165°F. Cooking: Set the oven temperature no lower than 325°F and be sure the turkey is completely thawed. Place turkey breast-side up on a flat wire rack in a shallow roasting pan 2 to 2-1/2 inches deep. Check the internal temperature at the center of the stuffing and meaty portion of the breast, thigh, and wing joint using a food thermometer. Cooking times will vary. The food thermometer must reach a safe minimum internal temperature of 165°F. Let the turkey stand 20 minutes before removing all stuffing from the cavity and carving the meat. Remember to refrigerate food promptly after the meal. Discard any food left out more than two hours. Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water when preparing food and serving. Always wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils and countertops with hot, soapy water after preparing each food item and before going on to the next.
