OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

A former Clarke Community School cheerleading coach plead guilty to the charge of second-degree theft, a class D felony. According to Clarke County District Court documents, Jacqulynn “Jaci” Baumfalk entered the guilty plea Dec. 5 at Clarke County Courthouse. Court documents state, “During the time period of August 2008

through June 2011, (Baumfalk) did take possession of money belonging to others with the intent to deprive its owners thereof, and/ or did misappropriate property exceeding $1,000 in value by disposing of money belonging to others in a manner inconsistent with the owner’s rights.” Previous articles A Feb. 9, 2012, Osceola Sentinel-Tribune article stated a state audit found Baumfalk at fault for mismanagement of funds raised for a cheerleaders’ trip to Florida

in December 2010. The cheerleaders traveled to Florida to perform at the Champs Sports Bowl. According to the audit report, a special investigation of the district’s cheerleading account from Aug. 19, 2008, to June 30, 2011, identified $10,136.42 of undeposited collections, improper disbursements and a loss incurred by the district related to the account. The article states the undeposited collections totaled $8,674.14, and included $5,723.14 from fundraisers and $2,585 of payment

Chicken scratch OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

The city of Osceola has a rough draft of an urban-chicken ordinance proposal, but right now, it’s still a lot of chicken scratch. During a previous Osceola City Council meeting, the council directed Ty Wheeler, city administrator/clerk, and other city staff to create a draft of an urban-chicken ordinance proposal for the city of Osceola. Wheeler An urban-chicken ordinance would allow people to keep chickens on their city property. Wheeler presented the draft proposal at a Dec. 3 meeting. “Specifically, there were several — seven— different criteria ... a draft ordinance cover,” he said. “And, the packet in your folders tonight does just that.” What it might contain Provisions in the draft proposal covered the maximum number of birds, not allowing roosters, having a permit fee, requiring

unemployment benefits to Baumfalk, a former Clarke County Animal Shelter manager, after she appealed the initial denial. Baumfalk was fired from the shelter in March 2012 for misconduct. Baumfalk was discharged from the shelter after discrepancies were found in the shelter’s finances. Court documents released Dec. 5 state Baumfalk’s judgment and sentence will be 9:30 a.m. Feb. 4 in the district courtroom at Clarke County Courthouse.

from parents. According to the audit report, the payments from parents included cash and three checks, which should have been issued to the district but were issued to Baumfalk instead. The three checks were then endorsed by Baumfalk. Animal shelter An Aug. 2, 2012, Osceola Sentinel-Tribune article stated an administrative law judge for Iowa Workforce Development’s unemployment insurance department affirmed a decision to not issue

an enclosure for the chickens, citing nuisances from odor, noise, predators, waste, storage and removal and what happens if a chicken gets loose in the neighborhood. “Also, which I never thought of until looking through some of these, if your chicken gets out and the neighbor’s dog or cat kills it, you cannot come back on the city and cite a dangerous animal claim against the dog,” Wheeler said. Work session Councilman Glenn Schaff said he would like to have a work session on the urbanchicken ordinance proposal before any action is taken on the issue. Councilman Dr. George Fotiadis agreed with Schaff. A work session was scheduled 7 p.m. today. “We need to get all the dos and don’ts together. Then, we will have no backlash on it,” Schaff said. Councilman Dave Walkup said he thought Wheeler had done a wonderful job working to create an urban-chicken ordinance proposal. “I think it’s something that we can take a pencil to and we can cross out and add on,” Walkup said. “It gives us some guidance and a format to look at.”

OSCEOLA SENTINEL-TRIBUNE

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Know your insurance By TOM MURR Osceola

Most of us get up every morning without a thought about our health until we are sick. Then, we realize how important our health becomes to our well-being. Over the years, our family hase purchased health insurance that we could afford. Yes, we want more coverage, but with a family of four, we could not pay for it. We made selections with our insurance person — what was the best “bets” and selected them. I do the same thing with car insurance. Yes, there are certain requirements that I must have by state law. However, the real expense of car insurance is on coverage that I select and the deducts that I can afford to pay. Like everyone, I would love to have 1,000 percent coverage at a very, very cheap rate. It does not work that way. I have to know what the coverage that I can afford. Last year, our insurance company reviewed all of our coverage with us. We cut some coverage, and we added some coverage. We thank the insurance agent for the time and advice. Over the years, we have had some claims. The insurance companies that had our coverage have always been fair and straight forward in paying our claim. Yes, I know it is popular to complain about insurance companies. It

was the “small print” or “they didn’t tell me” when the insurance company does not pay the claim is our common-heard excuse. I was taught in school to ask questions. If you ask questions, there is “no small print” or “they didn’t tell me.” When our children became young adults, I discovered from phone calls they had not been taught even about car insurance. SOME IN OUR WORLD TODAY WOULD HAVE US THINK THAT PROFIT IS A BAD WORD. Well, profit is not a bad word. In Waterloo I worked part time Contributed photo for Dan Deery car sales. Dan had a Toys for Christmas: Cub Scout Pack No. 101 displays coats they collected during the month of statement he made often, “I want a November. The new or gently-used coats were donated to Clarke County Toys For Christmas Program for famireason to be here tomorrow and turn lies in need this holiday season. on the lights.” Let’s not make the insurance companies out to be the “fall guys” in this huge debate going on right now. They are in business to make a profit. Some lines of insurance do not make profit, and other lines do make a profit. It is like basketball; in a game the team may be shooting poorly, but the team can always play good defense that may give your chance for victory. Frankly, the insurance companies are here to cover losses we feel we cannot risk for ourselves. Some people will never have a claim, and others will have a lot of claims. The insurance companies are hoping it will all balance out, and there will be a profit at the end of the year.

To tip or not to tip: That is the holiday question (BPT) - When the holiday season arrives, so too does the enigma of holiday tipping. Make a list: The key to holiday tipping is to plan ahead so nobody gets overlooked. Scale appropriately: The general rule of thumb for holiday tipping is up to the cost of one instance of service.

Leverage technology: The holiday season is a hectic time of year for many people, so leverage technology to make life easier. Express gratitude: It’s important to remember that above all else, holiday tipping is really holiday thanking, extending a courteous gesture as a result of service throughout the year.

Local caregivers make national accomplishment JOPLIN, Mo. — Southern Hills Specialty Care Center’s certified nursing assistants (CNA) Jessica Parmer and George Michelman have recently graduated from the National Association of Health Care Assistants’ (NAHCA) eight-module certified preceptor course. The multimedia program, written and delivered by NAHCA, provides instruction and coaching to ensure CNA students understand how to effectively mentor and train new nursing assistants entering the profession of caregiving to the frail and elderly. By completing the course, each participant demonstrated the knowledge and tools needed to reduce CNA turnover, integrating them into

their training process and building the most consistent and stable team of professional caregivers at Southern Hills Specialty Care Center. “We are always very pleased that CNAs invest the time to learn how they can positively influence new nursing assistants and help them succeed,” said NAHCA Senior Vice-President of Membership Services Jeff Carter. “It also demonstrates the desire of the long-term care provider Southern Hills Specialty Care Center of Care Initiatives to invest in their staff to provide the best care possible. Ultimately, the frail and elderly benefit greatly with a consistent and skilled team of CNAs to provide what is often life sustaining care.”

First Lego League regional challenge to be held at Clarke Creativity and science will come together 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, for the First® Lego® League (FLL®) regional challenge at Clarke Community High School where 18 teams of nine- to 14 year-old youths and coaches will demonstrate their problem-solving skills, creative thinking, teamwork, competitive play, sportsmanship and sense of community. This year’s “Nature’s Furyism” Challenge calls for teams to research and present their own creative solutions to one of today’s most relevant topics: natural disasters. Teams will discover what can be done when intense natural events meet the places people live, work and play. With missions such as positioning an evacuation sign, clearing an airplane’s runway from debris and delivering supplies, teams will have to program their Lego Mindstorms® robots to solve a set of missions on an obstacle course set on a thematic-playing surface. For the challenge, FLL collaborated with organizations such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Red Cross, National Weather Service and other specialists to create a theme and challenge missions that reflect real-world issues. The FLL competition is judged in four areas: project presentation; robot performance; technical design and programming of the robot; and teamwork, with a consideration of the FLL core values. The highest honor will go to the team

Star emerges for Clarke

OSCEOLA SENTINEL-TRIBUNE

Central Decatur runs past Lady Indians

Indians fall at Central Decatur By SCOTT VICKER

OST sports editor • svicker@osceolaiowa.com

LEON — Central Decatur escaped with a 73-68 win in a wild, back-andforth contest here on Dec. 3 against Clarke in a game that saw nine lead changes. But, even in the loss, a star emerged for Clarke. Senior Colin Morris went off for 41 points on 16-of-33 shooting from the floor to ignite the Indians after Clarke fell behind 2010 early. Morris stepped up and hit big shot after big shot to bring the Indians back into the game. “I knew Colin would step up,” Clarke head coach James Larson said. “If you would have seen all the effort and hard work he put in over the summer, you’d

know what to expect this year. I wasn’t surprised. “Colin really put it on his shoulders this year to take over the team, because with the loss of (Dylan) Diveney, we needed that leader to step up,” Larson said. “He’s doing it vocally and on the floor. He did a lot of attacking. He’s a tough guy to guard. He’s quick, he’s strong. He can take it to the hoop, but he can shoot it, too.” Central Decatur head coach Zach Clark said before the game he was worried about Morris hitting shots. Clark’s fear was realized, but his team hit enough clutch shots down the stretch to hold on for the win. “For us to escape with a guy getting 41 is lucky,” he said. “He was a good player last year — now he’s a

great player. He made every big shot for them, and we were able to just make a couple more shots at the end. A performance like that, 41 is the most that’s ever been scored against me in 11 years of coaching. You can only say great things about that kid. He’s a competitor and he’s a great sport. I hope he has a great season.” Many of the starters in the game found themselves in foul trouble, which tested the depth of each team’s bench. Both teams received solid contributions from the bench. Larson said he was particularly proud of 6-6 freshman Grant Wishon’s play off the bench. Wishon Please see BOYS, page 8

LEON — Clarke head girls basketball coach Eric Zoske was glad his team faced a tough challenge here on Dec. 3 against a tough Central Decatur team. “I’m glad we got pressed,” he said. “With this being a non-conference game, it’s good to run into Earlham, good to run into Central Decatur — two very good teams. Now it’s time to start working toward our goal.” That goal is a fourthstraight South Central Conference championship. The Lady Indians got off to a good start toward that goal by picking up a 53-41 win at Centerville on Dec. 5, but a pair of season-opening losses showed the Lady Indians what they need to work

on in order to achieve that goal. “We knew we’re going to get pressed until we can prove that we can handle the press,” Zoske said after his team struggled with Central Decatur’s fullcourt pressure in a 6437 loss. “Now, we didn’t make bad passes — we had six travels in the first half and zero in the second half. “Ten turnovers in the first half and four in the second. Fourteen is fine, but our guards just need a little more confidence. It’s just that we’re young and inexperienced at that position.” Central Decatur took advantage of that inexperience, as the Cardinals raced to a 34-14 halftime lead on the strength of their defense.

The Lady Indians managed just one field goal in the first quarter. “What do you say? We’re missing wide open shot after wide open shot,” Zoske said. “We got wide open shots, they just weren’t going in. Any player loses confidence when you’ve missed four or five in a row.

Murray survives scare from No. 9 Murray cruises past Diagonal shorthanded Diagonal By SCOTT VICKER

OST sports editor • svicker@osceolaiowa.com

By SCOTT VICKER

OST sports editor • svicker@osceolaiowa.com

MURRAY — All Diagonal head boys basketball coach Matt Warren could do was shake his head following his team’s 62-60 loss to Murray here Friday. “I’ll remember this game for the rest of my life,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it, finishing a game with only three people. I couldn’t be more proud of the guys, the way they battled, and against a good, good team. We were just so close. I don’t know how to put it into words.” The Maroons were playing without two of their post players as senior Ryan Parrott is out with mononucleosis and sophomore Kade Means tore his meniscus, leaving Diagonal with just seven available players for Friday’s Bluegrass Conference game. Still, the undermanned Maroons appeared to be in good shape, tied at 29-29 with the Mustangs at halftime on the strength of sophomore Jacob Taylor’s 17 first-half points. At that point, Murray found itself in serious foul trouble, as starters Andrew Rider, Trey McHenry and Sam Rockhold all entered halftime with three fouls.

Reversed fortunes But, Murray head coach Darin Wookey switched to a 2-3 zone to start the second half of the game in order to protect his players from getting into further foul trouble. Meanwhile, within the first four minutes of the second half, Diagonal had two players with four fouls and two others with three fouls, trailing 44-40. Colter Pickering hit 1-of-2 free throws and then Taylor took over again, hitting a floater in the lane, followed by a pullup 3-pointer, leading to a Murray timeout with 1:22 to go in the third with Diagonal leading 46-44. Pickering fouled out shortly after the timeout, and Levi Jarred picked up his fourth foul. But Taylor hit another 3-pointer just before the buzzer to give Diagonal a 4944 lead heading to the fourth quarter. Rider banked in a 3-pointer to tie the game at 49-49 and then Diagonal sophomore Gerad Naill, who hit two big 3-pointers in the third quarter, fouled out with 6:41 to go, leaving the Maroons with just five players.

Man down Jarred fouled out with 3:17 left in the game, giving Diagonal just four players. Rockhold knocked down both free throws for Murray, giving the Mustangs a 57-51 lead. Rockhold led Murray with 14 points, including 12-of-14 shooting at the free throw line,

and 15 rebounds. Pat Kilmer added 12 points and 10 rebounds. McHenry pitched in 13 points with eight boards. But being down a man didn’t stop Diagonal. Blake Butler hit a pullup jumper and after Rider went 1-of-2 at the line, Taylor knocked down two free throws to close the game to 58-55. Butler drove baseline for another bucket, making it a one-point game with 1:49 to go. After a Murray timeout, McHenry hit a jumper to make it 60-57 in favor of Murray. But Taylor stepped up one more time, dribbling to his left, the southpaw pulled up on a dime and knocked down a 3-pointer fading away from the basket to tie the game at 60-60 with his 30th point of the game. After Fisher Decker went 1-of-2 at the free throw line, Taylor fouled out with :48.8 left in the game, leaving Diagonal with just three players on the floor. Pat Kilmer went to the line, where he made 1-of2 attempts, making the score 62-60. Diagonal inbounded the ball, and with about :34 remaining in the game, foreign-exchange student Ismail Omar, who had never played basketball before this year, let loose a 3-point attempt from

the right wing. Omar’s shot was on a perfect line for the hoop, but sailed just long, as Murray corralled the rebound. Diagonal wasn’t able to foul in the final :30 and Murray held on for a wild 62-60 win. Wookey said he’s never been a part of a game quite like this, but said it was unfortunate the game ended the way it did. “The worst thing about it is with Taylor on the floor, they have a chance to win it no matter what, because he can beat one guy, two guys off the dribble,” Wookey said. “I know it wasn’t much fun for their kids to have to step off to the side and foul out, but I was glad our guys stepped up and got it done.” Diagonal falls to 1-2 for the season and 0-1 in Bluegrass Conference play with the loss, while Murray improves to 1-1 and 1-0.

MURRAY — The ninthranked Murray Lady Mustangs outscored Diagonal 37-14 in the second half to pull away from the Maroonettes here Friday in a 61-26 win. Diagonal, featuring a starting lineup with four freshmen and just two freshmen coming off the bench, stayed within striking distance at the half, down 2412 despite scoring just two points in the opening quarter. “Murray is well-balanced,” Diagonal head coach Gina Knox said. “They have experience versus us not having a team last year, starting four freshmen and bringing two freshmen in off the bench. It’s going to be a challenge either way. Our goal was to rebound, make them foul us and make them shoot that outside shot.” In the end, though, Murray’s depth and size proved to be too much for Diagonal. Junior post player Madison

Gonseth, at 5-11, grabbed 10 rebounds and scored 19 points, posting game-highs in both categories. Many of Gonseth’s points came on second-chances after grabbing an offensive rebound. “Our height made a big difference for us,” Murray head coach Jerry Shields said. “Madison Gonseth and Megan Oswald did a good job for us on the inside. We still have to make some bunny shots.” Oswald pitched in eight points with four rebounds. Deena Snyder added six points with eight rebounds. Senior Courtney Siefkas scored 10 points off the bench in her best shooting performance of the season. Senior point guard Kate Patton was held to just three points on 1-of-9 shooting from the floor in the win. Kaitlyn Klommhaus and Cassidy Becker each scored eight points for Diagonal, which fell to 0-4 for the season. Kasydi Klommhaus netted six points and Megan Davenport chipped in four. “At times, I thought we gave them a little bit too

much of the second chances on offensive rebounds,” Knox said. “I thought our penetration was good. Kaitlyn has struggled to want to drive, and I felt like tonight she picked that up. That was good to see.” Shields said he felt it was important to work all 11 of his players into the game, giving the younger players a chance to gain valuable experience. “That’s a big thing for us, because we’ve got four seniors that do a lot of our playing for us,” Shields said. “It’s important to get those kids in and get some experience. Hopefully we can do that in a couple more games before the new year starts here for us. That’ll be big for us to go seven, eight, nine deep.” Murray improved to 3-0 for the season and 1-0 in the Blugrass Conference with the win. The Lady Mustangs host Mormon Trail in a boys and girls doubleheader on Tuesday, while Diagonal hosts Orient-Macksburg in a boys and girls doubleheader Tuesday.

finished with just two rebounds, but made his prese n c e known on defense by altering shots. He Wishon recorded two blocked shots. “He stepped up big,” Larson said. “He gave us some big minutes, because I knew our post players

were going to foul out. He stepped up, did his job. He didn’t score any points, but he was a presence down low. That was nice to have.” After slow starts to the game, Clark saw two of his starters get into a rhythm in the second half, helping the Cardinals pull out the victory. Dalton Rhum finished with a team-high 24 points and 13 rebounds, making two big baskets down the final stretch. Noah Simon also provided a spark in

the second half, scoring 16 points for the game with seven boards. Peyton Pedersen netted 16 points for the Cardinals. Jared Jamison added 11 points for Clarke, and also dished out six assists. Carlos Tamayo and freshman Troy Morgan each scored seven points for the Indians.

Chariton Clarke fell to 0-2 for the season and 0-1 in the South Central Conference with an 83-69 home loss to

Chariton on Monday. Morris once again led the Indians, this time scoring 32 points on 12-of-28 shooting to go with seven rebounds. Jamison added 11 points, while Matt Blanchard scored nine points with four rebounds. Brin Evins grabbed eight rebounds.

to these girls, if you’re 0-for-5, your goal is to go 1-for-6. If you’re wide open, shoot the ball. You have the green light.” Clarke eventually got some shots to fall, scoring 23 points in the second half, but it was too little too late. Foul trouble also hampered the Lady Indians early in the game, as both Libby Bemis and Baylie Balcaen fell into foul trouble. “That’s all the difference in the world,” Zoske said.

Technology integration into curriculum at Clarke Elementary School With the recent arrival of iPads at Clarke Community Elementary School, all students have increased opportunities to use technology as a learning tool in mastering the objectives of the curriculum. The school’s teachers are busy finding and sharing new ways to use technology to teach skills once taught only with paper and

pencil. Both students and teachers are using this new opportunity for learning in education. In the Learning Enrichment and Acceleration Program (LEAP) at the elementary school, students in kindergarten through sixth grade use various types of technology to help them use higher-order thinking skills to cre-

Students can read the beginning of a story and finish the story by creatively adding their own words and pictures.

Fifth-graders learn to compare and contrast similar topics and present their findings using a Google presentation, which is similar to a slideshow. Students use a variety of sources of information to find facts and then choose three subtopics to consider, presenting their findings on their Google presentation.

They can add pictures and transitions to make their presentations appealing. The finished presentation can be projected on a screen for large groups to view.

Spirit of Christmas By Pastor TOM C. MURR

Woodburn/Norwood United Methodist Church

When my brother and I were around 10 years old, our parents were gone awhile on Dec. 24. Now, we had some doubts about the Santa coming down the chimney. We went looking in the spare bedroom and found some packages in the closet. Well, we decided to open up “one.” You remember the Potatoes chips add? We would open several. When our parents came home and saw that we had been in the spare bedroom; they were very upset with us. I remember my mother saying, “Those are your Christmas gifts and there are no others!” On Christmas morning, we went into spare bedroom and got our gifts. You know those gifts never meant as much as I remember from other Christmases. In the Christmas season that was started with “pre-Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving,” we can miss the most important package because we are caught up in all the activities of “material gifts and parties.” Oh, I like those like everyone else, but one memory does stand out about Christmas for me. It is the lighted candles and the sharing the Christmas Story from Luke 2: 3 - 15 “And everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, Sunday, 10 a.m. IMMANUEL LUTHERAN CHURCH, 101 E.

the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.’ Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.’ When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” (RSV Bible) In our family, we took turns reading this story of “love” God sent to us in that little town of Bethlehem. In the years since then, I am more inspired about the God’s gift from Isaiah prophecy of the Christ child. One gift of “love” that has been made clear to me comes from Isaiah 53: 4 – 6 “Surely he has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have all turned to our own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” For me, clarity comes from the prophecy of Isaiah about the gift that is given to us by God at Christmas. You and I are blessed by a love so great that His son has taken our brokenness. You and I shall “rejoice” always for this love gift from God. May each of us find time amidst all the activities of this season to stop and give “praise” and “rejoice” for the immense love that God has offered to us at Christmas. May this love encompass all of us on Christmas and lift us to take a step forward with God’s love in our hearts rejoicing. Servicio. Martes - 6:00 p.m., Oracion. Jueves - 6:00 p.m., Misioneros.

SICOG receives grant from Iowa Finance Authority DES MOINES – Iowa Finance Authority Board of Directors approved a total of more than $7.5 million in grants to 26 local housing trust funds to support local, affordable housing initiatives, which will assist more than 2,000 Iowa families. The funding is provided from the state housing trust fund’s local housing trust fund program. “The Iowa Finance Authority is proud to partner with local housing trust funds to efficiently fulfill unique local affordable housing needs throughout the state,” said Iowa Finance Authority Executive Director Dave Jamison. “The grants announced today not only provide more than $7.5 million in direct funding, but they leverage an additional $6.4 million in local contributions, which is a testament to the shared dedication of meeting these vital needs.” The grant funds will be used for initiatives such as preserving aging housing stock, subsidizing local down payment assistance

programs, providing lowinterest loans or grants to assist Iowans in home rehabilitation, financing construction of new singlefamily housing for low-income Iowans and supporting transitional housing and homeless assistance programs. Southern Iowa Council of Governments (SICOG) housing trust fund received $295,951. For SICOG, the grant will focus efforts on seven affordable housing activities to assist an estimated 35 households: owneroccupied rehabilitation in support of homeownership, first-time home buyer assistance, transitional/special needs housing (including assisted living), infrastructure for new development/ infill housing, lead-based paint remediation, demolition and lot clearance for new construction and rental projects. SICOG serves Adair, Adams, Clarke, Decatur, Madison, Ringgold, Taylor and Union counties. The state housing trust

fund was created by the Iowa Legislature in 2003. Since its inception, the program has provided $42 million in affordable-housing assistance that has benefited more than 12,600 Iowa families. This funding has leveraged another $147.5 million in other funds or $3.51 for every dollar of state housing trust fund investment. The state housing trust fund helps ensure decent, safe and affordable housing for Iowans through two programs. The local housing trust fund Program receives at least 60 percent of the SHTF allocation to provide grants for organizations certified by the Iowa Finance Authority as a local housing trust fund. The remaining funding goes to the project-based housing program, which aids in the development of affordable single-family and multifamily housing. Iowa Finance Authority administers both programs and provides technical assistance to housing-related organizations.

Boyer participates in prestigious World Food Prize Global Youth Institute Kaitlyn Boyer of Clarke High School was among the top students in the country selected to attend the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute Oct. 17-19 in Des Moines during the Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium, which drew 1,500 people from more than 65 countries to discuss the world’s hunger and food security issues. The World Food Prize was founded by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dr. Norman Borlaug in order to recognize and inspire great achievements in improving the quality, quantity and availability of food in the world. This year’s World Food Prize events kicked off the beginning of a yearlong anniversary celebration in honor of Dr. Borlaug’s 100th birthday that will culminate in fall 2014. Students from across the United States and abroad researched global food security issues in the country of their choice, and then submitted papers on those critical topics, which they also presented to renowned experts and scientists. At the three-day World Food Prize Global Youth Institute, Boyer and 150 other high-school students had the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of internationally renowned World Food Prize Laureates and leaders in food, agriculture and international development. Global Youth Institute attendees participated in symposium sessions featuring: • Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, president of Iceland • His Eminence Cardinal Peter K.A. Turkson of Ghana, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Holy See, The Vatican

• Akinwumi A. Adesina, honorable minister of agriculture and rural development, Nigeria • Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Howard G. Buffett and Howard W. Buffett, who announced the creation of the 40 Chances Fellows program, a partnership of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Tony Blair’s Africa Governance Initiative and The World Food Prize • The chief-executive officers of many of the world’s major agribusiness companies — DuPont, Elanco, Kemin Industries, Monsanto, Novus International and Syngenta • Researchers, non-profit leaders and smallholder farmers from around the globe. Boyer presented a paper on the theme “Ending Hunger In Our Lifetime: A Call to Action” and participated in roundtable discussions with experts in industry, science, academia and policy. Research for the paper focused on major issues in global agriculture, development and food security in developing countries. Participants also helped with a hands-on service project packaging meals for Outreach International, a hunger-fighting organization that serves people in Iowa and abroad, toured an Iowa farm and took part in an Oxfam Hunger Banquet to experience the realities of global hunger and poverty. Created by Dr. Borlaug and Iowa businessman John Ruan in 1994, the Global Youth Institute today receives major support from Clay Mathile and the Mathile Institute for the Advancement of Human Nutrition. The program was developed to challenge

and inspire participating student-teacher teams to identify ways of alleviating hunger, and to expose the students to opportunities and careers in food, agriculture and natural resource disciplines. At the Global Youth Institute, Boyer interacted with students and teachers from Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as Bangladesh, China, Mexico, Nigeria, Turkey, and South Africa. Participants also viewed the 2013 World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony that honored three individuals – Marc Van Montagu of Belgium, Mary-Dell Chilton and Robert Fraley of the United States – for their independent, individual breakthrough achievements in founding, developing, and applying modern agricultural biotechnology. Their research is making it possible for farmers to grow crops with improved yields, resistance to insects and disease and the ability to tolerate extreme variations in climate. Coverage of the 2013 Laureate Award Ceremony is available at www.worldfoodprize.org. High-school educators and students interested in participating should visit www.worldfoodprize.org/ youth and select their state on the U.S. map, or other country link if living abroad, for information on the 2014 Global Youth Institute.
