Public health won’t provide services reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

As of Jan. 1, Clarke County Public Health will not provide skilled home-care services reimbursed by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. The decision was made by Clarke County Board of Health in

late October. According to Sandy Eddy, administrator at Clarke County Public Health, there are already 10 Medicare-certified agencies with a service area that includes Clarke County. Clarke County Public Health was one of those 10 agencies. Another reason is Unity Point Health (formerly Iowa Health

System) is opening an office in Clarke County Jan. 1. “This is a small county,” Eddy said. “It’s not a gap-filling service that we need to put public funds into. We need to work on other things that nobody else is really doing.” ‘Smooth transition’ Clarke County Public Health sent out a letter to its patients in

early November with a list of other agencies that serve the county so they could pick a new provider. “Per their guidelines, we need to make sure they have a smooth transition — the current clients we have,” Eddy said. A public notice regarding Please see PUBLIC HEALTH, Page 4

School board debates allowing Crossroads services on campuses By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor • ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

Should mental-health services be provided on campus at Clarke Community School District? That was the topic debated during a Nov. 26 Clarke Community School Board meeting. Clarke Superintendent Benita Gonzales said Joyce Westphal with Crossroads Behavioral Health Services talked to her about providing behavioral-health services at Clarke Community School District. Westphal was not at the school board meeting. “It would also provide an opportunity for Crossroads to work with our teachers

— with our faculty and staff — in regards to talking to our teachers a b o u t Gonzales mentalhealth issues, talking about ways to work with kids that have some of these issues,” Gonzales said. What is Crossroads? Crossroads serves Adams, Clarke, Taylor, Madison, Adair and Union counties. Its main office is based in Creston, but it also has many satellite offices within its service-provider area. Crossroads was established to provide support,

counseling and therapeutic services to individuals, children, couples and families. The satellite office in Osceola is located at 820 N. Main St. Providing space Gonzales said the school district would have to provide the building space on the school campuses, and services could be provided one day a week. “I don’t have any other schools to even compare this to because this is new,” she said. Gonzales said the service would be free to the school district, but the space provided needs to be “uninterrupted” and “confidential”

Iowa Department of Revenue’s Julie Roisen explains business property tax credit By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor • ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

Property-tax reform is coming to Iowa, and one of the main components of the reform is the business property tax credit.

“For your purposes, it’s a credit. It’s a rollback. It’s a local payment for that rollback,” said Julie Roisen, property-tax division administrator with Iowa Department of Revenue during a commercial property tax reform luncheon Nov.

The credit According to Iowa Department of Revenue, the business property-tax credit is part of the overall 2013 property-tax reform bill that was enacted by the Iowa Legislature and signed by Gov. Terry Branstad. The credit is applied toward property taxes due on the 2013 property assessment and payable fall 2014 and spring 2015. The credit is available for certain commercial, industrial and railroad properties. The credit is applicable to individual parcels, as well as “property units.” One credit is available for each qualified parcel or property unit.

Have you ever been frustrated when you have to make an emergency stop at the doctor’s office? That’s what happens in the film “CoPay” by Paul Berge of Butter Cow Films in Indianola. “CoPay” focuses on a middle-aged man named Bosworth who discovers he has kidney stones and has to deal with inept hospital doctors and medical staff. The scenes were shot in Clarke County. “Essentially, (it’s) a sitcom, where each week p o o r B o s worth sets out for a normal day and somet h i n g Berge gets in his way. It won’t be medical each time, don’t worry about that,” said Berge during a private screening of the film Nov. 19 at the Lyric Theater. During the private screening, three short films and a theatrical trailer were shown. What was shown Berge said the first film was a public-service announcement commis-

sioned by the Iowa Aviation Promotion Group to get people interested in aviation. It was shot in Boone. More information is available at the website www.abovetheordinary. org. The second film was a short film on Iowa Aviation Museum and Iowa Aviation Hall of Fame in Greenfield. Next shown was a theatrical trailer for a short film by Brad Smyser of Des Moines called “The Wake-Up Call.” Smyser coproduces Berge’s films. “The Wake-Up Call” stars Liz Klinge, a morning anchor for KCCI Channel 8 news of Des Moines. The finale of the private screening was “CoPay.” Berge said part of the purpose of making the film was educational. The film was also shot in association with Infinipix. It is a pilot for a web series titled “Bosworth.” Meet Bosworth The actor Greg Anderson starred in the film in the title role. After the film was shown, Anderson was asked if he’d ever had a kidney stone. His answer was no. “I had several people say, ‘Have you had a kidney stone?’ I said, ‘No.’ They said, ‘Well, oh no, you won’t be able to do this,’” he said.

Anderson added, he was nervous about the project because he wanted to “nail it.” The next episode for “Bosworth” will be shot in the spring, and the third will be shot in the summer. Berge said “CoPay” will be put on Vimeo, which is similar to YouTube. YouTube is a video-sharing website. Wild Rose “CoPay” was shown in the Wild Rose Independent Film Festival in Des Moines. The film received the Best Iowa Short Film award. It also received awards for Anderson’s performance and screenplay. “The main thing about Wild Rose is, you get it up there on the screen, people see it, you meet other filmmakers,” Berge said. The next film festival for “CoPay” will be in the spring at the Snake Alley Film Festival in Burlington. “Our main thrust with ‘Co-Pay’ is to get it on Vimeo, get the package together and get out raising money through whatever sources we can,” Berge said. Butter Cow Films is always looking for help when making films, Berge said.

He was a 1942 graduate of Osceola High School and then attended Osceola Junior College for one year. He enlisted in the Army Air Force in 1943 at age 17. After graduating as a Second Lieutenant, he served as a pilot instructor in Texas until the end of the war. Because of the G.I. Bill, he

After his graduation he took his first teaching job as an agricultural instructor in Donnelson, IA. In June 1951, the Perdues returned to Ames where Charles continued his education, receiving his Master’s degree in 1952. Charles then took a position as vocational agricultural instructor with Oskaloosa High School. Charles taught for 36 years at Oskaloosa High School. He particularly enjoyed teaching farm shop skills such as welding and small equipment construction. He was involved in many extracurricular activities as well, serving as the F.F.A. advisor and teaching Adult Farmer Classes. Charles and Dorothy got into the rental and home renovation business in the late 70’s and following his retirement in 1989, this side business turned into a full-time job. He took great pride in his properties, always wanting them to reflect positively on his community. He also found time to serve as a bus driver for the Oskaloosa Schools. Charles was awarded the O.E.A. “Friend of Education” award for his service to the district. Over the years, Charles enjoyed calling for square

dancing, motorcycling, traveling, family camping trips, and spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks where he and Dorothy built a vacation home. He was an avid tree planter – he believed that trees span the generations and they were his gift to future generations. Following Dorothy’s death in 2007, Charles married Phyllis Blom Childers on February 2, 2008, in Oskaloosa.

Addressing the tension By COUNCILMAN GLENN SCHAFF Osceola

First of all, I would like to thank you for your continued support in the past election. I look forward to serving you another four years as your councilman. I have always tried to do what I feel was in the best interest of the citizens of Osceola. I believe Osceola is a great place to live and I am truly happy to call Osceola my home. I will continue to fight and do what I feel is best for the community. My opinion is, we are lacking good leadership right now, and feel we are just spending money and spinning our wheels. It has been stated by a fellow council member that I don’t want things to change for this community. That is simply not true. I want to see this community survive more than anyone. I simply want us to take care of what we have now, before we move forward with more. I do not like how we have a small group of staff running our town. Instead of hiring more staff, we need to teach the staff we have to become more efficient. We need to do better with our parks and maintaining streets. We need to concentrate on the new sewer plant being built and paid for. We need to look for savings through being more efficient and try to slow these rate increases. Because of these reasons, I’m not favored among city staff. I feel we need to be open and honest with the public, after all, that is who we work for. After reading an article in the Osceola Sentinel-Tribune, I feel it’s necessary for me to let the public know what really led up to the tensions escalating at the Nov. 19 council meeting. In a letter dated Nov. 8, 2013, I received from the city administrator, it states: “Council wards — with the low overall voter turnout, several of you have independently inquired of me about reviewing the representation structure of the council. Rather than the three wards, two at-large seats, the question has been raised about changing all five seats to atlarge. I was surprised to learn when looking into the issues that a change can be done by simply amending the ordinance. It would not require a ballot issue because we are not technically changing the form of government; we’d still be mayor-council.” Not knowing anything about why our administrator was looking into this, I called three other council members on Nov. 8 and asked each of

venting illness, promoting health and providing care to the population as a whole.” Clarke County Public Health will continue to provide public-health services, including immunizations, health-promotion activities, homemaker services and Parents as Teachers for children from birth to age 5. Parents as Teachers is a service that offers parents support and tools to help their child learn as they grow. Home visits are made by parent educators. Eddy said Clarke County Public Health will still remain an “elderly-waiver provider” because it will still offer homemaker services. Homemaker services are available for general

them if they asked the administrator to look into changing the wards to all at-large. The answer from each of them was no. This only leaves one other council member left, so I’m not sure what council members the administrator was referring to in his letter that asked him to look into this. Since this letter, our administrator has found out he can’t do this change without a valid petition from the people and special election. Now, he is looking into keeping the three ward, two at-large system, but changing the voting so everybody could vote for each ward. This research by our administrator was brought up after our current council member in Ward 2 was defeated in the last election. I feel they are wanting to make this change in our council representation so they could continue to stack the council with their friends. The voters spoke at the last election and voted to elect who they wanted representing them. This frustrates me because I feel our administrator should not be spending time looking into these issues without the council directing him to do so. At bare minimum, the full council should be aware before he does, and we should be discussing these issues at an open meeting with the public involvement. I tried to address this by asking our city administrator questions at the Nov. 19, 2013, council meeting. I simply asked him who asked him to look into changing our current structure. Instead of making him answer the question, I was cut off an called out of order by our mayor, and I was told after the meeting that I was only one council member, and to not forget it. Seems to me, bringing up the issue of changing the council structure wasn’t something they wanted to discuss in an open public meeting. Hopefully, in January, when our new council member starts, I will have some help correcting our broken system. The next day after the meeting, I was called by another council member and was told they would like things placed on the agenda that I would like to talk about, instead of asking questions in my report at the end of the meeting. I feel this is an attempt to know what I’m going to ask ahead of time, so they will have time to come up with an answer. I feel like I’m doing what’s right, and will continue to fight.

Clarke County Public Health ran in the Osceola Sentinel-Tribune Nov. 28. The notice stated current Clarke County Public Health clients receiving skilled services will be given referrals to other Medicarecertified agencies serving Clarke County residents. “The services are still being provided,” Eddy said. “They’re just being provided by a different entity. The services are more than available in our community. That’s why we’re dropping out.” Still open The notice stated, “Clarke County Public Health will continue to operate, focusing on the mission of pre-

Fees are based on a sliding-fee scale. Eddy said Veterans Affairs (VA) pays for homemaker services, and Medicaid pays for homemaker services if people are on an elderly-waiver provider.

Eddy said she wanted to remind the public, Clarke County Public Health’s office isn’t closing, however, it will concentrate on having a more “public-health focus.” “There’s no point in us using county funds to duplicate service for people,” she said.

Gonzales said Crossroads staff could be able to provide on-site training services to teachers and administrative staff. She said it could also be beneficial to not pull students out of class for a-half day of school if they have an appointment off campus. The students could continue to be in class until they have an appointment in the school building. “We do have students who are currently … leaving for the afternoon if they’ve got a one o’clock appointment and not returning to school,” Gonzales said. Another question was, could the school be responsible for liability if Crossroad staff was in the district’s

buildings? Gonzales said Crossroads could take on all liability or billing issues when working with children. There are currently many organizations that provide services within the school district, such as the organization Life-Line Resources in Osceola. Still to come No action was taken on the issue. The board had some concerns and questions that still needed to be addressed. “I’m wondering, are kids going to get picked on, or a stigma attached being seen walking in there?” said board member Larry O’Tool. “I think we ought to be careful with this.”

CROSSROADS: work in the building on a trial basis for a semester. However, Clarke High School Principal Kim Antisdel was not in favor of it. Gonzales said Antisdel already has concerns that highschool students are being pulled out of class too much already. School board members also discussed the problem of finding a space for Crossroads staff, since there already is a problem of not having enough building space for students. Why Clarke? As discussion on the subject progressed, a question was asked, if mental-health services are already offered in town, why should they be in the school buildings?

space. This could be an office for one-to-one or smallgroup counseling. Crossroads staff could provide their own technology and keep all of their documents off campus. “They will take care of all of the financing, all of the work with the parents, sending out letters and communication with parents,” Gonzales said. “Basically, all we’re doing is providing a spot one time a week.” Administrative interest Gonzales said she talked with Clarke Elementary Principal Jill Kiger and Clarke Middle School Principal Jeff Sogard, who would both be willing to let Crossroads staff

FFA students attend national convention ley farms, below a commemorative headstone. After Darley Farms, students toured Buffalo Trace Distillery to learn how the industry is important to agriculture. They bring truck loads of corn everyday, which comes from states in the Midwest like Iowa. After the distillery is done using the mash to make their bourbon, they put it into giant dryers to make distillers grain for livestock. The distillery also supports the lumber and logging industry, as all of the bourbon is stored in wooden barrels, the main source of unique flavor. Each bottle made at the distillery can be traced back to the storage barrel it was contained in, and how long it was aged before being marketed. Once students arrived at national convention at Freedom Hall, they attended a lot of agenda-based sessions, as well as listened to many motivational speakers. One of the highlights of the convention was listening to Josh Sundquist. Sundquist is an amputee who stresses how important it is to overcome adversity. Students also attended many focused workshops where they learned about leadership opportunities and how to make an impact in the agricultural industry.

On Oct. 29, Osceola Big Chief FFA chapter boarded a charter bus, along with students from five other schools. The bus left for Peoria, Ill., to stop at Caterpillar to take a tour through the facility that assembles bulldozers. As students were guided through the facility, they got to see the assembly line belts move as workers installed parts of each bulldozer. They arrived in Louisville, Ky., and took a tour at Darley Thoroughbred farms in Lexington. Darley Farms, also known as Jonabell Farm, is owned by Sheikh Mohammed, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and Crown Prince of Dubai. He bought out the farms in 2001, and currently stands 13 stallions that are well known in the racing industry. Students got to tour two of the stall barns and the breeding facility.

Colorblind care: improving health literacy among minority populations (BPT) — Achieving consistent quality of care regardless of a person’s race or ethnicity remains a critical goal for anyone with a stake in America’s health care system for improving health literacy - the ability to use and understand health information. “In the United States, life expectancy and other health status measures vary dramatically depending on factors such as race, gender, educational attainment, and ZIP code,” according to an August 2013 report in Health Affairs. Here are some sobering statistics: • Asian-American adults have much higher rates of stomach and liver cancer than non-Hispanic whites; • African Americans are 40 percent more likely to have high blood pressure than nonHispanic whites; and • Hispanics have higher rates of asthma compared with other populations. One of the solutions to eliminating these disparities is more effective communication about health care and health care treatment options, according to Tom Paul, chief consumer officer, United Healthcare. It is all the more important given the nearly 16 million minority individuals expected to enter the health

care system as a result of the Affordable Care Act. More than 77 million adults in the United States experience what is known as “low health literacy,” which - especially among minorities - often leads to more frequent medical errors and avoidable hospitalizations, longer hospital stays, and over-- and underutilization of medical procedures, according to Paul. For example, 65 percent of Spanish-speaking adults in the United States experience some limitation understanding and using health communications, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This is an issue, however, that affects all racial and ethnic groups. A University of Connecticut School of Business study estimates the cost of low health literacy to the U.S. economy in the range of $106 billion to $238 billion annually. There are many things health care companies can do to help mitigate these disparities and close the great communication divide. For example, culturally sensitive health resources and wellness tools, such as UnitedHealthcare’s Generations of Wellness - created to help AfricanAmerican communities live healthier - offer lifestyle and

wellness tips that can help improve health outcomes. UnitedHealth Group’s Just Plain Clear English-Spanish Glossary provides easier-tounderstand, Spanish-translated definitions of some 2,200 insurance, dental, medical and legal terms. Also, encouraging young minority students to pursue careers in health care to increase the number of multicultural health care professionals is vital. For example, United Health Foundation recently awarded $2 million in scholarships to 175 students to help increase diversity in the health care workforce. A number of universities and medical schools offer cultural competency training work to improve disparities in the health care fields. The National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health also offer a range of cultural competency tools. Addressing health disparities is a two-way street, one that will entail new, tailored tools and educational services that boost health literacy, greater cultural competence among health care professionals and diverse communities taking a more active role in their own health.

Diabetes and Diet – Debunking the Myth Diet plays a major role in diabetes management, but the lifestyle changes are not drastic. In fact, small changes can make a big impact. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) shows that losing seven percent (or 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds) can considerably lower your blood sugar, making diabetes management easier and reducing the risk of developing diabetes. The myth of needing special diabetic meals is not true. In fact, you can still enjoy most foods, but careful meal planning is essential. Diabetes occurs when the body cannot effectively regulate high amounts of sugar in the blood. Carbohydrates in food tend to increase blood sugar. Therefore, avoiding foods high in sugar and empty calories, such as processed “junk” foods, regular soda and enriched pasta, significantly help with diabetes management. However, you should not focus on what you cannot eat, but the whole array of foods you can eat! Meals should be balanced and contain appropriate portions of each food group, including carbohydrates. In fact, most people with diabetes need to consistently eat three to four carbohydrate choices per meal. Healthy eating is not just for people with diabetes. Everyone benefits from an improved diet, but making better choices requires a lot of practice. My secret for success is to make small changes to your diet and stick with them until it becomes part of your dietary lifestyle. For example, start with one small goal, such as switching from 2 percent milk to 1 percent. Another is to cut soft drinks. One study in the

Kristi Oksendahl, RD, LD, Dietary Manager and Clinical Dietitian

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that people lost an average of 5 percent or more of their body weight in six months without exercising, simply by drinking water over soft drinks. No matter the goal, you should try to be successful for six weeks before adding a new goal. Don’t be too harsh on yourself if you slip up once in a while; tomorrow is a new day. People with diabetes do need to evaluate and modify their diet in order to better manage blood sugar, but these adjustments are often small and progressive. With a physician’s order, I provide personal counseling and guidance through the Clarke County Hospital Diabetes Education Center. Call (641) 342-5348 for more information on nutrition therapy services for diabetes. Kristi Oksendahl, RD, LD, is the Dietary Manager and Clinical Dietitian at Clarke County Hospital. She graduated from Iowa State University and completed her dietetic internship through ARAMARK in Kansas City. At Clarke County Hospital, she provides a variety of inpatient and outpatient nutrition counseling and assessments for diabetic and cardiac patients, weight loss, weight gain, high fiber diets and other nutrition-related needs.

Not-so-sweet memories Willie Nelson crooned the love tune “Sweet Memories.” But the truth is that sweets and memories don’t go together. For the 105 million North Americans who have too-high blood sugar levels, memories are more likely to be swept away than sweet. And, according to the journal Neurology, even for people who have normal blood sugar levels (70-100 mg/dL fasting), high-normal levels dampen verbal recall more than lower-normal levels do. What does this mean for you? Your ability to learn and consolidate memories is affected by your diet, physical activity and stress-management choices. (Soon we expect a smartphone app and attachment that gives minute - to - minute blood sugar readings — you’ll know which foods and activities are protecting or damaging your memory!) So, to reduce your risk of memory problems, here’s a simple plan that’ll have you singing “Thanks for the Memories”! 1. Guard against midsection belly fat, which is linked to dementia, by eliminating the Five Food Felons (added sugars and sugar syrups, any grain that isn’t 100 percent whole, and saturated and trans fats). 2. Get up and moving — sitting down too many hours a day raises triglyceride levels, lowers good HDL cholesterol and triggers insulin insensitivity (a hallmark of Type 2 diabetes). Dr. Mike’s treadmill desk is one smart solution; so is walking for 10 minutes after every 90 minutes of sitting. And start a daily walking routine, heading for 10,000 steps a day. 3. Reduce your stress with 10-20 minutes of meditation using progressive relaxation,

mindfulness or breathing routines. Go to sharecare. com for more how-to information. FOODS BANNED THERE, BUT NOT HERE In 1972, George Carlin’s “Seven words you can never say on television” routine spelled out what wasn’t acceptable for the media diet of American consumers. Too bad Carlin isn’t around to cook up a routine on “Three food additives other countries ban but the Food and Drug Administration says are acceptable for American consumers!” 1. Ractopamine: This beta-agonist is used to increase meatiness in 30 percent to 50 percent of cows, hogs and turkeys raised in North America. Russia stopped imports of North American meats because of ractopamine residue, and 160 countries ban its use in livestock. Why? Beta-agonists in pork sickened hundreds in China and long-term consumption may trigger ADHD and chromosomal changes. Solution: Always opt for ractopamine-free organic turkey — and nix red meat; it boosts risk of heart disease, diabetes and premature death. 2. Brominated vegetable oil (BVO): Used to help sodas and fruit-flavored drinks retain their artificial coloring, brominate (a flame retardant) may cause neurological problems, changes in thyroid hormones and earlyonset puberty. It’s banned by 100 countries. Solution? Read beverage labels, and don’t buy ones with BVO — and stick with no-sugar-add-

ed natural beverages, water and black coffee or even caffeinated water. 3. Olestra: A fat-blocker added to snacks like chips inhibits absorption of fatsoluble vitamins E, D, A and K and may cause dangerous declines in beta-carotene and lycopene levels. Canada and the U.K. say no. Solution: Reduce your fat absorption by eliminating saturated and trans fats from your plate; choose heart-friendly olive oil, walnuts, almonds and omega-3 fatty acids in salmon and sea trout. CAN YOU POSTPONE TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT (AND SHOULD YOU?) Many of the 27 million people in North America with osteoarthritis of the knee probably agree with Rod Stewart: “If God had meant for us to do yoga, he would have put our heads behind our knees.” But fortunately for old rockers and others who want to keep rolling along, you don’t have to accept the pain or physical limitations of knee osteoarthritis. Since 1997, the initial go-to treatment for knee OA has been injections into the joint of hyaluronic acid. Recently, however, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons declared that there isn’t proof of significant benefits. But a major new arthritis study found that hyaluronic acid injections improved comfort and function significantly, helping people postpone total knee replacement up to three years! So what’s the

smart step for you? We bet the injections’ effectiveness depends on a few factors, including your weight, fitness level and nutrition. We suggest: Lose weight if needed (10 fewer pounds takes 30 or more pounds of pressure off each knee with each step). Eat an anti-inflammatory diet of lean proteins — especially salmon or ocean trout; if you can’t eat them frequently, take 900 mg DHA omega-3. And go for nine servings of veggies and fruit daily, only 100 percent whole grains, and no added sugars or sugar syrups. Start walking; add a few steps daily, heading for 10,000. Plus: 10 minutes of upper and lower leg muscle strength-building sessions three times a week. Then ask your doc about trying hyaluronic acid injections to see if they keep you singing Rod’s hit “Can’t Stop Me Now.” AVOIDING ZORRO’S (MRSA) MARK What daily risk do competitive high-school fencers face? It’s “touche” that’s perilous — but not because their opponent scores a point. Turns out contact with unsterilized equipment carries a serious risk of infection with MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a nasty bacteria that can thrive on an unsanitized sensor wire worn underneath a fencer’s protective gear and passed around from team member to team member. Fencing isn’t the only sport where there’s this risk; MRSA is common in wrestling and football teams. It’s ended many NFL careers. Currently Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ guard Carl Nicks and kicker Lawrence Tynes are off the field because of MRSA.

Anytime there is a chance of skin abrasions, physical contact and shared equipment and facilities, there’s a threat of MRSA contamination. The first sign may be a painful boil that requires draining; but unchecked, it can cause life-threatening infections in bones, blood, heart valves and lungs. So here are tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on how to make all locker rooms more MRSA-resistant and protect athletes from an opponent who doesn’t ever play by the rules: —Make sure adequate soap and hot water is always available. —Do not share towels, soap, clothes or jewelry. —Establish routine cleaning schedules for shared equipment. —Encourage athletes to report skin lesions to coaches. Ask coaches to assess athletes regularly for skin lesions. —Train athletes and coaches in first aid for cuts and abrasions, and recognition of areas/lesions that could become infected. TAKING THE PRESSURE OFF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) may think his alter ego’s job-related physical exploits can protect him from high blood pressure. Think again, Ironman! A new study points out it’s leisure-time exercise, not physical activity at work, that helps lower your risk of HBP. Four hours of leisure-time exercise a week cuts your risk of HBP by 19 percent compared with folks who don’t get any (that’s about

25 percent of North American adults). So even if you do physical work, put on your walking shoes (this will relieve a lot of stress) and stride at 100 steps per minute for 10-15 minutes; then increase your pace to 130 steps per minute for 2.5 minutes. Your goal is 10,000 steps daily. But to protect yourself even more (105 million people in North American with diabetes or prediabetes are at increased risk of HBP), here are four foods that’ll move you toward, or keep you at, our recommended BP level of 115/75. Eat two ounces of walnuts daily: After eight weeks you’ll relax blood vessels and reduce blood pressure. Sip beet-root juice: One cup of beet-root juice can drop your systolic BP (the top number) by around five points six hours after sipping the niacin-rich drink. Grab some raisins: A handful of 60 raisins contains 1 gram of fiber and 212 mg of potassium; both help control blood pressure. Flax your muscles: Study participants eating 30 g of milled flaxseed daily for six months saw systolic blood pressure fall by around 10 points and diastolic (the lower number) by around 7. *** Mehmet Oz, M.D. is host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” and Mike Roizen, M.D. is Chief Wellness Officer and Chair of Wellness Institute at Cleveland Clinic.

Murray’s Barber third-team all-state By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor • svicker@crestonnews.com

The Iowa Girls Coaches Association announced its all-state volleyball teams today, and the lone area representative on this year’s all-state teams hails from Murray. Junior Hannah Barber earned a third-team nod in Class 1A after a recordbreaking season for the Lady Mustangs. “That’s a nice honor for her and a nice way for us to finish off the season to be able to get somebody on allstate,” Murray head coach Jerry Shields said. “I think she deserved it. That’s a nice honor for her as a junior.” Barber helped lead the Lady Mustangs to a school record 27 wins in a 27-4 season, topping the previous mark of 22 wins in a season. She also ranked sixth in Class 1A this season in kills with 366. That, too, was a school record, breaking the previous mark of 342 by Stephanie Kirk. “That’s a big individual honor and a big team honor, too, for her to be recognized,” Shields said. “We had 27 wins this season, which shattered the old record of 22 wins. She had 366 kills, and broke the old school record by Stephanie Kirk set back in 2003.” Barber averaged 4.31 kills per set and hit at a .313 rate. While the Murray attack be-

Murray junior Hannah Barber (12) tips the ball over the net against East Union during regional play this year. Barber was named to the Iowa Girls Coaches Association Class 1A all-state third team. Barber had a school-record 366 kills in leading the Lady Mustangs to a 27-4 season.

hind her was balanced, Barber was the go-to player for the Lady Mustangs. “We had a lot of balance this year,” Shields said. “Nobody was able to key on her a lot. That made it nice when we did need a point, she was able to get it for us. Grandview Park Baptist was probably the team we struggled with the most as far as her, because they followed

her all night long and double teamed her the whole time.”

All-around game But it wasn’t just Barber’s attacking at the net that earned her all-state recognition. She was a leader for the Lady Mustangs in just about every category. Please see BARBER, page 8

Success isn’t always measured in wins and losses. The Clarke football team proved that this year. If you look past the 1-9 record for the season, you’ll see the Indians had a successful year. Second-year head coach Michael K l i n e set three goals for his team entering the 2013 season — 1. make Kline the playoffs, 2. have a team GPA of 3.10 or higher and 3. to raise $600 for charity by scoring touchdowns at home games. While the Indians didn’t make the playoffs, they did accomplish their other two goals, embodying the term “student-athlete.” “Student-athletes — that’s what I tried to tell our guys,” Kline said. “There’s state rules and

rules that our district has. But we don’t want to be just the minimum. We want to exceed that.” Last year, the Clarke football team had a team GPA of 3.09, so Kline set this year’s goal at 3.10. The Indians easily surpassed that goal with a team GPA of 3.30, placing 14 athletes on the Class 2A District 6 academic all-district team. “Very proud of the young men,” Kline said, “in the effort they give on the field and the time they donate off the field.” Sophomore Rich Wilkins said meeting that team goal was a big accomplishment for the team. “That was a great thing for the team,” he said. “Before coach Kline got here, we didn’t have as good of an academic team. Then when he got here, he set high expectations, which was a great thing.”

Fundraising The other goal the Indians met this year was raising $600 for a charity by scoring touchdowns at

home games. For every touchdown scored, a local business donated money to the charity the team chose. This year, the team elected to give that money to the That Others May Live Foundation, which provides support to service men and women injured in the line of duty and to the families of those who have lost their lives in battle. “One of our assistant coaches, Craig Wisniewski, his brother died serving in Afghanistan,” Kline said. “He kind of brought up the idea and the guys jumped on board. The organization was excited we were giving to them.” The Indians entered the final home game of the season still short of the $600 goal, but reached that total in a 48-7 loss to PCM, Monroe. Wilkins connected with Dustan Van Loon on an 8-yard touchdown to reach the $600 mark. It was a special moment Please see CLARKE, page 8

ealthier holidays are appier holidays!

For happy, healthy holiday baking, experiment with simple substitutions and tasty festive and flavorful food. Seasonal sweets become delightful dishes with small changes to traditional recipes. This year, enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of the season – the smart and sensible way!

5/1/12 3:22 PM for trade-ups

Be Ready with Recipe Reductions

For a healthier holiday twist on traditional recipes, consider reducing the fat, calories, and sodium in your festive favorites. • To reduce fat, cut the amount in half and for the other half, substitute unsweetened applesauce, mashed bananas or pureed prunes. Use egg substitute in place of whole eggs. Use non-fat or light dairy products rather than the original version. • To reduce sugar, cut one-third to one-half of the amount in the recipe. Consider alternative sweeteners such as Splenda, Delecta or stevia for sweet treats without spoonfuls of sugar. • To reduce sodium, cut the amount by half or eliminate completely (except in recipes that include yeast). Substitute salt with festive flavors of onion salt, garlic salt, celery salt and seasoning salt with onion flakes, garlic powder and herbs. • Be practical about portions. Limit the number of options available to limit the number of temptations. Serve smaller portions of dessert items by cutting into bite-sized pieces.

Enjoy the Extra Nutrients

Focus on fiber and pack in protein to make holiday baking scrumptious and satisfying. • Add flax seed, chia seed or oatmeal to your recipes. • Use whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour in breads, bars, muffins, pie crusts, and cookies to turn tasty treats into satisfying sweets. • Dried fruits add fiber and flavor to recipe favorites. • Nuts are packed with nutrients, including heart-healthy fats, fiber and protein.

Nutritional Trade-ups with NuVal

Use NuVal, the nutritional scoring system, to help make your holidays happier and healthier! Try the following simple substitutions. • Use plain non-fat Greek yogurt (NuVal 94) instead of sour cream (NuVal 26). • For better baking, use canola oil (NuVal 24) instead of corn oil (NuVal 11). • Substitute fat-free evaporated milk (NuVal 100) for evaporated milk (NuVal 35). • Try Campbell’s Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup (NuVal 31) instead of Campbell’s 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup (NuVal 26).

for Wilkins, who has an uncle serving in Iraq. “All the money went to an organization that helps out the troops, which is an awesome thing,” Wilkins said. “My uncle is actually in Iraq, which is important to me. We had one home game left and we had Wilkins one touchdown left to make, and I was throwing the pass, so it felt great. It was a great experience.” In another fundraising effort, members of the Clarke football team formed a Relay for Life team at the firstever Relay for Life event in Clarke County this past summer. Kline was approached about forming a team, and recruited 25 players to participate. “I didn’t ask them to do too much,” he said. “I said our goal is for each guy to raise $20, which was $500. When it was all said and done, we had $1,004.83 that

The Clarke football team also worked on a service project this year through the Clarke County Development Corporation’s (CCDC) Neighbors Helping Neighbors program. One Saturday after a film study session, the team painted a community member’s house, and also did some touch-up work at the Osceola Historical Society’s school house. “We spent probably about five to six hours working,” Kline said. “But, when you’ve got a lot of young, able-bodied young men at your disposal, they can do a lot of work in a short amount of time.” Sophomore Hunter Simpson said doing the service work helped the team grow together. “While you’re out there doing that, you learn a lot of team-bonding and building skills together,” Simpson said. “Also, through Neighbors Helping Neighbors, it’s great Simpson to see ev-

eryone’s face afterward when their houses just got fixed for free.” Being able to help the community was a great experience, Simpson said. “My dad’s a minister and I was always raised to treat people with respect,” he said. “This is my way of showing people my respect for them by helping out with community service. I really enjoyed it.” Kline said he hopes his student-athletes are able to learn a few life lessons along the way. “I think high school sports is a great teaching tool for life,” he said. “You only get to play high school sports for four years, but fortunately, many of these young men will live well into their 90s. They have a long life ahead of them, and I want them to build character traits, and be people that look to give back to their community.” Kline said just like his football team has to work together as a team, he considers the community a team. “This whole community is really a team,” he said. “Our slogan this year was ‘ALL INdians,’ and we wanted to emphasize that we were all committed, but that we were all Indians, that we’re all from the same community here.”

Area girls basketball Interstate 35 The Interstate 35 girls basketball team started its season 0-2 on a tough road trip that saw the Roadrunners take on two state qualifiers from last year. The Roadrunners fell 5039 at Winterset on Nov. 25 to open the season. Freshman Gracey Griglione netted 19 points and pulled down a team-high six rebounds to go with four blocks, leading Interstate 35. Nicole Bowden, the team’s leading returning scorer scored five points with two steals. Brooke Brommel added five points, as did freshman Slye Richardson, who also contributed a team-high four assists off the bench. Charlie Rupp scored four points with five rebounds. Interstate 35 then suffered a 56-45 loss at Earlham on Nov. 26. Griglione once again led the team, this time recording a double-double with 23 points and 10 boards. She finished just two blocked shots short of a triple-double, as she finished

with eight blocks. Richardson netted 12 points and dished out four assists. Caylin Brommel scored four points, as did freshman Riley Morris. Rupp netted two points with four rebounds and four assists.

Murray 57, SEW 50 LIBERTY CENTER — Murray overcame a 14-point halftime deficit to pick up a seven-point win in its season opener over Southeast Warren here on Nov. 26, 57-50. “First game jitters or just a lot of poor defense in the first half,” head coach Jerry Shields said. Murray outscored the Warhawks 34-13 in the second half. Kate Patton led the way for the Lady Mustangs with 20 points, seven steals, four rebounds and three assists. Madison Gonseth and Megan Oswald each recorded double-doubles for Murray. Gonseth finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Oswald netted 11 points with 11 rebounds. Cheyanne Ash-

BARBER: Continued from page 7

Barber led the team with 81 ace serves this season and served at a 93 percent clip. She recorded a team high 181 digs, as Barber well. “She did a really nice job serving for us this year, too,” Shields said. “She’s not just a hitter, but a good all-around player. She does a good job. A well-rounded athlete for volleyball.” Following a regional final loss to Stanton, Viqueen head coach Jody Druivenga noted how her team tried to avoid serving the ball to Barber and wanted to keep from sending free balls over the net toward her, given her defensive prowess. Shields said the reason for her success on the volleyball court is simple — she puts in the work. “Volleyball is her only sport,” he said. “She puts in a lot of work. She plays a lot of club ball. The team did more this summer than in the past. She does a lot of practicing at home. As much as she’s put in, it’s a well-deserved award for her.” Shields said Barber, along with several other volleyball players, spent many hard

hours working in the weight room and in conditioning. “They’re willing to go in there and put the work in first thing in the morning,” he said. “She did a lot of cardiovascular training, too. I think that was a key for our team, for that matter. We didn’t really go five games that often, but when we did go deep in matches, we always had the feeling we’d be able to outlast the other team, because we thought we were in better shape than them.” Barber, at 6-0, will return next year to form a formidable front row for the Lady Mustangs with Madison Gonseth and Jade Lecy, both sophomores this year, giving Murray three players taller than 5-11 in the front row. “We’ll have a good formidable front line,” Shields said. “We’ll bring back two of our better defensive players. Our biggest thing we’ll have to find is a setter to take Kate’s (Patton) spot.”

All-district Barber was also named to the all-district team for Class 1A’s South Central

District. Joining her on the South Central all-district team are senior teammates Patton and Megan Oswald. Patton had a successful season setting for the Lady Mustangs, shattering the school single-season record for assists. The quick senior finished the season with 666 assists, breaking the old mark set by Holly Crain with 410 in Patton 2001. Patton also recorded 70 ace serve and served 97 percent for the season. Oswald, meanwhile, ranked second on the team with 170 kills. She added 24 aces, while serving 96 p e r c e n t . Oswald Oswald ranked third on the team with 55 total blocks and recorded 60 digs.

‘Buying’ into Christmas By The Rev. Dr. Al Adams

First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

The scene: Starbucks Café, evening, three days before Christmas. The characters: Two young people, sipping and wondering, wondering and sipping. It was Wednesday evening, and I was in our local Starbucks, just “hanging out,” sitting at a small round table in the middle of a just-before-Christmas last-minute shopping frenzy for some folks combined with a glad-the-shopping’sover-with celebration time for others. One of the “frenzy” group spotted one of the “glad it’s over” group she knew and they settled at the table next to mine. The conversation went something like this: “Why do we do this to ourselves?” “What?” “All this going crazy. I don’t even want to see my credit card bills!” “Why not?” “Why? Where have YOU been? Don’t you have your shopping done yet? “Yea, why?” “Whatever. What’re you doing for Christmas? I’m going home to my folks’ place. Flying. Hope all the presents fit in my suitcase. On second thought, I hope all the stuff I’m gonna bring back fits in it. What’re you doing?” “Oh, I’m going to church Christmas Eve night, then...” “Oh, I used to do that. Mom and Dad used to take us when we were kids.” “Well, anyway, then Christmas morning I’m going to my brother’s and we’ll open presents and have breakfast together.” “You really still do the church thing?” “Yep – reminds me what it’s really all about, you know, like you asked why we do this…?

Osceola Fareway

American Cancer Society honors Clarke County In honor of outstanding contributions in the fight against cancer, American Cancer Society (ACS) recently presented the volunteers of Relay For Life of Clarke County a Midwest Division Community of Hope Award at the 2013 Southeast Iowa Leadership Conference held in Oskaloosa. The Community of Hope Award is presented annually to a Relay For Life community that demonstrates leadership, initiative and creativity to successfully implement mission related activities in order to positively impact the cancer burden and increase American Cancer Society awareness in their community. “The American Cancer Society recognizes and appreciates when volunteers understand the importance of showing others how the society is active in their community, helping friends and families every day,” said Cathy Struecker, ACS Relay For Life specialist. “The volunteers of the Relay For Life of Clarke County did just that this year.” The communities in Clarke County increased awareness of the American Cancer Society and its mission to fight back against cancer with a determination to start a Relay event in their community.

Pictured, from left, are Denise Conrad, Relay For Life (RFL) senior manager, Karen Irwin, RFL of Clarke County event chair, and Cathy Struecker, RFL event specialist.

Through the leadership of Karen Irwin, Clarke County successfully recruited committed volunteers to plan an event that most in the community had never heard of or experienced before. These volunteers recruited 24 teams and more than 200 individuals to be a part of the event, raising nearly $22,000 as a first-year event. This overnight event was not deterred by the thunderstorm it faced just before the luminaria ceremony; teams moved indoors and continued to celebrate the night through. The support the committee received from the school district, local businesses and organizations, local newspaper and community

members was evident by the sheer number of people who showed up at the event to participate. The date for this year’s event is 6 p.m. Friday, June 13, to 6 a.m. Saturday, June 14. The committee is currently seeking volunteers to help plan this year’s event. To be a part of helping this event succeed again this year or to start a team, visit www.RelayForLife.org/ ClarkeCountyIA or call 641572-0100. Relay For Life is the world’s largest movement to end cancer, where each year more than 4 million people in more than 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.
