Trouble on the ice

Miller encourages enthusiasts to head to the northern parts of the state, and even then, to keep a watchful eye on conditions. “That good, clear, early ice is best,” said Miller, noting how dangerous thawing and refreezing can be. “Top water on top of the ice starts chewing its way in. You might have ice, but it’s not good ice.” Miller also had tips for

Two men got on the ice at West Lake Friday morning. Only one safely made it back to his truck. If help hadn’t been close at hand, it’s doubtful the other would have made it home. “Your local conservation officer is the hero of the day,” said Osceola Police Officer Gary Potter. “Michael Miller saved his life. No doubt.” Police Chief Marty Duffus said he wasn’t sure Osceola rescue services would have reached the man in time. “I’m not sure how he even got out there,” said Duffus, as the ice had already receded back 15 to 20 feet from the shoreline. Miller, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conservation officer for Clarke and Decatur counties was driving by West Lake when he saw the

two men setting up on the lake. “I was surprised that people were out there. I was also surprised at how far they were out,” said Miller.

“People here hadn’t been out ice fishing for at least five days.” The young men, who had Polk County plates, said they had gone out over the

dam. Miller told them to get off the ice, and about 10 feet from shore, one of them fell through into frigid water. “It was an intense five minutes,” said Miller. “He

surviving a fall through the ice. “Number one, wearing a flotation device is important. Having ice picks is important,” he said. “Once you fall in the ice, you don’t have anything to grab on Miller to.” Buddy systems are essential but so is safety gear. New styles of flotation vests and retractable ice picks make it easy to stay protected. Finally, said Miller, who is also an experienced ice fisherman from up north by Lake View, if you fall through the ice, once you get out, exit using the same path you used to get on the water. “You always want to try to get out the direction you came,” said Miller. “That other direction might be worse.”

Making a mark with alt art By HILARY FERRAND OST news editor hferrand@osceolaiowa. com

Local artist Mike Montgomery has discovered a new passion in erosolgrafia, or spray paint art. The style has experienced surprising growth in the last five years, thanks largely to YouTube, where Montgomery said he’s picked up most of his instruction. “I started watching how they do it in New York and Las Vegas,” said Montgomery. “I watched for about two weeks before I decided to do it.” He’s been practicing steadily for a year and already his creations are causing a stir. From pop icons to surreal nature scenes, Montgomery’s work has popped up in homes and businesses across Osceola and Clarke County. “It takes a lot of work, a lot of patience,” said Mont-

gomery. Key to aerosolgrafia is the ability to adapt and a reliance on common materials. “There’s some that I go

ahead and draw out, and then paint,” said Montgomery. “I’ll use sponges, newspaper, pen, round plates, pie plates. I’ll even use a putty knife.”

Stencils have also become a cornerstone of the style, which starts with the creation of a focal point. ART | 5

Grassley bill targeting perpetrators of crimes against seniors sails through Judiciary Committee WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee last week approved Senator Chuck Grassley’s bipartisan legislation to step up penalties against perpetrators of crimes against vulnerable senior citizens. The Elder Abuse Prevention and Prosecution Act of 2017 cleared the committee by voice vote with no opposition.

crack down on those who would cowardly seek to exploit the vulnerabilities of America’s seniors. Families across America, including in my home state of in Iowa, have been victimized by such crimes, and as the population ages, we can expect more and more victims if we don’t act. The Elder Abuse Prevention and Prosecution Act takes meaningful steps to deter criminals seeking to exploit seniors and hold accountable those who do,” Grassley said. An estimated six million Americans over the age of 60 fall victim to abuse or

exploitation each year, and many of those crimes go unreported. Financial crimes targeting seniors rob them of at least $2.9 billion annually. The legislation (S. 178) expands data collection and information sharing to better prevent and respond to all forms of elder abuse and exploitation, including financial crimes against seniors. Last year, the bipartisan 3,000-member Elder Justice Coalition called the bill, “one of the most comprehensive and meaningful bills ever developed to address the rapidly increasing prob-

New bike rental program kicks off this spring in Osceola

Clarke County Public Health recently received a $10,000 grant from the Wellmark Foundation to develop and implement a new Bike Share program in the city of Osceola. The program, set to launch in the spring of 2017, will give residents access to bicycles to rent for exercise and activities throughout town. With the City’s recent efforts in improving and developing a more robust trail system and ongoing sidewalk improvements, the bike share program adds to health and wellness activities available to the community. In the most recent community health needs assessment, performed in the Summer of 2015, Clarke County public health discovered that inactivity and overweight citizens plagued Osceola and the surrounding communities. According to www. countyhealthrankings. org, 30 percent of Clarke County’s population is obese with 28 percent physically inactive. These statistics inspired Mackenzie Hickenbottom, Clarke County Public Health Administrator, and health educator Stephanie Shields to meet with city leadership, the Parks and Recreation Board, the Board of Health, Clarke County

Development Corporation (CCDC), as well as the Clarke County Supervisors to propose the bike share program and build support. In order to receive the grant, an application was submitted to the Wellmark Foundation answering multiple questions on how the bike share program would benefit the community. The Wellmark Foundation then put the grant application and information on their website for a public vote. It was open for review for months and through votes submitted by the community as well as shares and connections made through social media, the award was won. The grant notification was received in December of 2016. Once the Wellmark Foundation grant was received and the materials for the bike share were onhand, the group realized they were $1,570 short for the final equipment and implementation costs. So, at the Feb. 8 CCDC Board meeting, a grant to cover the remaining costs was approved. This allowed the program to move forward to hit their target date of an April or May launch for the program. “It was a lot of hard

work and collaboration, but we’re pleased to have received the grant and excited to get the program rolling this spring,” said Stephanie Shields, health educator at Clarke County Public Health. In early Spring, citizens can watch for the bikes and installation of the program at the Clarke County Courthouse on the Osceola square. The courthouse area was chosen because of its central location as well as existing security cameras and ample lighting. Membership models for

the program will range from monthly fee rates to annual options, giving members 24-hour access to the bikes. While waivers will need to be signed by members, insurance for the bikes and equipment will be handled through Clarke County Public Health. For more information about Clarke County Public Health or the Bike Share Program, contact Mackenzie Hickenbottom, Clarke County Public Health Administrator at 144 W Jefferson Street, Osceola, Iowa 50213, or call (641) 342-3724.

BACK IN TIME ON THE SQUARE By Marie White OST photo by HILARY FERRAND

Changing scenery: New art works by Karen

Johnson can be seen in the Clarke Area Arts Council’s exhibit area at Lakeside Hotel and Casino throughout February.

Art museums of the Midwest Art enthusiasts don’t have to head to New York, Chicago or L.A. to see some of the finest art in the country — or in the world. Residents of Osceola only have a few hours to drive to visit some of the top galleries in the country. For instance: Nelson-Atkins Museum — Kansas City, Missouri Not only does the Nelson-Atkins rank high in terms of cultural importance of its some 34,000 works of art, it’s also completely free. With Kansas City just

under two hours away, this museum is a must for any art lover. Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden — Minneapolis, Minnesota Hailed as the first major art museum in the Midwest, the Walker Art Center is flush against the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, known worldwide for Spoonbridge and Cherry. The garden renovation currently in place is set to wrap up in summer 2017, so enthusiasts should be sure and put a stop on their bucket list.

At the Movies

Clarke County Historical Society

Restaurants and other businesses have taken up shop in the Dague block on south side of the square. Hyde’s grocery store (name later changed to Hy-Vee) was located here before moving to its present location. The Dague building was razed in September 1972. In 1990, Nancy Patterson constructed Triple T Dance Studio building in its place. Clarke County Public Health moved into the building, now owned by Clarke County, in 2016. The building to the east is a 21 by 100 foot building with a pressed-brick front and a blacony with two rooms in the upper story. Built in 1900, the rear part was fitted for a photograph gallery and the front for a suite

of rooms for private offices. This was also the location of the Pool Hall. Today, it’s the home of The Grassroots Home. Next door, the Osceola Sentinel newspaper run by Miss Mary Osmond and Frank Guches, began publishing in 1895. Cafes, grocery markets and bakeries occupied the building from 1903 to mid-1940s. Today this building houses the American Legion. Next, built in the 1890s and occupied by meat markets, restaurants, utility companies and Winter the Tailor over the years. C.H. Winter, merchant tailor and designer advertised, “If you don’t believe clothes makes a differences in a man, try walking down the street without them.” It’s the site of Earth Angels, 2017. In 1895, John W Boden, a maker of harnesses, saddles, bri-

‘A Dog’s Purpose,’ Rated PG By HILARY FERRAND

OST news editor hferrand@osceolaiowa.com

Based on the novel by W. Bruce Cameron, “A Dog’s Purpose” takes audiences on a journey through several lives – and owners – of a reincarnated canine soul. It’s important to mention that in January, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) released a video they say depicted animal abuse on set. While the dog involved in filming was stressed, independent reviews of conditions and a longer, unedited video of the session, concluded the video was intentionally modified to make the dog appear in more danger and under more stress than really happened. Add to that, several of the people involved in the making of the film are notable animal activists, including celebrated Swedish film director Lasse Hallström. The stunt seems designed to cut the profits of the project, and hurt the reputations of those involved, because they chose to work on a film using live animals for actors instead of

computer-generated imagery. Hallström’s background includes the groundbreaking “Hachi: A Dog’s Story” and the Academy Award-winning “My Life as a Dog.” The director’s ability to explore depressing topics without sending the audience overboard is finely tuned in “A Dog’s Purpose.” Audiences view life through the eyes of a single canine soul, reincarnated from one dog to the next, experiencing the joys — and horrors — of human nature from one life to the next. Human actors took backseat to the fourlegged friends the audience follows. Still, casting was decent all the way around. KJ Apa plays a convincing teen, faced with real difficulties. Dennis Quaid does farmers justice, as well. While the movie doesn’t delve much into violence, there is death, and young children might struggle with a few of the scenes. As heart wrenching as it is heartwarming, dog lovers and sensitive types should stock up on plenty of tissue on their way to the theater.

dles and whips, built a two-story brick building. It was 18 by 90 feet with a high and elegant steel ceiling and bay window in the front, with the entire lower floor of the building used in harness buisiness. Photography, medical offices, barber and beauty shops, a branch bank and other businesses occupied the location. Today, this is Mayberry’s. In 1895, Mike Beashor burned a kiln of brick to build a two-story brick building he occupied as Beachor’s Meat Market, complete with an ice house and bologna oven. Utilities and appliance businesses occupied the location. Today, it is Nelson Fry Appliance. In the late 1800s, the building next door was constructed with a balcony window. Over the years, it has been a jewelry store, beauty shop on second floor, law

offices, grocery and variety stores. Built in 1900, the building next door had a room with a very narrow frontage occupied by shoemaker. Later attorney, abstract, savings and loan and insurance businesses. Today, the sites house Booth Law Firm. In 1900, Frank Edwards bought Dibble block and moved his grocery business there in 1902. Groceries were delivered by a wagon drawn by famous and indestructible mules that wore straw hats in the summertime. Cafes, medical doctors and an Iowa state liquor store were at this location. In 1868, the first banking house in Osceola orginated at this location, closing in 1895. A shoe and harness shop, barber shop, medical and dental offices and a beauty shop second floor once occupied what is now

known as the location of Richard Murphy Law. In 1882, on the southeast corner of the sqare, was a goldsmith’s building fronting 108 feet on West Jefferson Street and 86 feet on South Main Street with a stone basement, metal roof, large plate glass front windows and steam heat. The second story was used for offices and a courtroom. Many businesses were located there. On November 22, 1917, a major fire destroyed the building and a night marshal and firemen were crushed to death by a falling wall. A large hole was left after the fire and grew up in weeds for 30 years. In 1947, a service station was built at the site. Today, the building houses a laundromat.

Pontiers visit Sen. Grassley during D.C. trip By HILARY FERRAND OST news editor hferrand@osceolaiowa.com

Sen. Chuck Grassley got a surprise visit last week from Jamie Pontier and her two children, Audrey and Cole Pontier, of Osceola. “After the election happened, [the children] were really interested in the public education debate and Betsy DeVos,” said Pontier. “They really wanted a chance to express their feelings about rural public educations and wanted to keep it well funded. They wanted

to talk to their senator about it.” Over a period of four days, the family walked the city, saw the sights and eventually stopped off at Capitol Hill to meet with their legislators. “There were a lot of votes going on in the Senate, so our time was short,” said Pontier. The children met with Grassley and, among other things, explained how influential their teachers — Mr. Mack and Mayor Kedley — have been in getting students interested in government this year.

“You have to cut out every little detail,” said Montgomery, noting that some of the stencils for his paintings have taken hours to complete. It’s a complicated process because, in many ways, artists work backward in comparison to how they’d create a traditional painting. Smudges and smearing also happen more easily with spray paint because of the air generated by the spray cans. “You have to be very careful. You can’t put a large amount [of paint] on,” said Montgomery. “It’ll blow all over your paper and ruin it.” Street artists use open flame to help dry layers, but stuck inside during an Iowa winter, Montgomery has found the careful application of a hair dryer to work just as well. A final coating of clear gloss protects the paint and

helps make colors pop. The art style traces its roots back to Mexican artist and poet Ruben Sadot in the late ‘80s. Sadot rejected traditional painting materials and methods and chose to create outdoors while speaking to passersby, mainly about politics. While his garden quickly became a popular spot among young, local artists, the professional scene in Mexico City also took note, incorporating elements of his method into their own works of art. “I love doing it,” said Montgomery. “I like how it stands out.” Montgomery is no stranger to the art world. One of the buildings in his hometown of State Center still sports a design he created as a student. He’s spent a lifetime drawing in his spare time. “It’s almost like a stress release,” said Montgomery. “My family is very supportive.”

TRURO — A tough first half shooting and hot shooting on the part of Woodward Academy’s Ammari Johnson was too much for the Clarke boys basketball team to overcome in Monday’s Class 2A District 13 opener. The Indians saw the 201617 season come to a conclusion with a 56-53 loss. Clarke had an opportunity in the waning seconds. The Indians had a good look at a 3-point shot, but it fell short. Woodward Academy corralled the rebound to secure the win. The Indians couldn’t overcome poor shooting in the first half that helped lead to a 31-22 halftime deficit. “The first half really hurt us,” said Clarke coach James Larson. Woodward Academy’s pressure flustered Clarke’s guards. “They used their athleticism,” Larson said “It was a nice game plan. They pressured our guards. They made it tough on our posts.” Meanwhile, Johnson caught fire, scoring 16 of his game-high 27 points in the opening 16 minutes.

OSCEOLA — Clarke senior bowler LeeAnn Helgevold came up with a creative way to throw her final shots as a Lady Indian bowler during Thursday’s home meet with Lamoni/Central Decatur. She and classmate Andy McKnight threw their shots at the same time. Each enjoyed the moment in their final throws at Alley Lanes competing for Clarke. Clarke’s girls and boys enjoyed a wildly successful senior night as the Indians and Lady Indians each cruised to easy wins. Clarke’s boys won with a school-record 2,844 to Lamoni/Central Decatur’s 1,704. The Lady Indians rolled a 2,509 to 1,451 for the visitors. “I thought it would be fun to throw our last three shots in this house as a regular season bowler,” Helgevold said. “We’ve bowled together a lot. It would be fun.”

Helgevold approached McKnight with the idea. “It was fun,” McKnight said. Both enjoyed the moment. “It was nice for their regular season final home meet,” said Clarke coach Dale Helgevold. “It was a nice little tribute to each other.” McKnight rolled a 413 individual series, one of three plus-400 two-game series. Michael Berryhill led with a 416 series, while Brock Bucy also had a 413. The Indian boys’ lowest total in Bakers was a 149. The Lady Indians were equally on fire. LeeAnn Helgevold led the girls with a 345 series, one of three 300-plus series. Landi Helgevold had a 338, while Kacie Shieler added a 329 The Lady Indians had a 921 in Bakers. “It was a great night for both teams,” Helgevold said. “They’re really jelling at this point going into regionals (held on Tuesday). “It was a great way to finish.” OST photo by RYAN KRONBERG

CLASS 2A WRESTLING

Mustangs end season with pair of solid victories By RYAN KRONBERG OST sports editor rkronberg@osceolaiowa. com

Murray’s boys basketball team capped the regular season with a pair of impressive wins. On Friday, the Mustangs sent an early statement to a potential district final opponent. Murray made a late basket to hold on for a 57-55 win at Martensdale-St. Marys. Kenny Boles had the game-winning shot for the

Mustangs. The Mustangs also came away with a key steal from Dustin Teas inside the final 10 seconds to hold on for the win. Martensdale-St. Marys led 17-12 after one quarter, but Murray rallied to tie it at 30-30 at halftime. The Blue Devils edged ahead 45-43 after three quarters, but the Mustangs had enough in the fourth quarter for the win. Bryce Keller had a big night, leading the Mustangs with 20 points along with eight rebounds. Teas had 14 points on 5-of-7 shoot-

ing, including four 3-point baskets and four steals. Jack Jones stepped up with 13 points, five rebounds and five assists. Boles struggled through a rough night shooting, but still came away with 10 rebounds and four assists. On Tuesday, Feb. 7, the Mustangs routed Mormon Trail 61-20. Murray jumped out to a 20-5 lead after one quarter and 34-10 at halftime, then pushed it to 53-16 after three quarters. Boles singlehandedly outscored Mormon Trail, pouring in a game-high 25 points

on 9-of-13 shooting and going 6-of-6 at the free throw line, along with grabbing five steals. Keller added 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting, along with grabbing nine rebounds. Murray closes out the regular season 19-2. The Mustangs open Class 1A District 12 play Thursday hosting Southeast Warren at 8 p.m. at Jerry Brown Gym. If the Mustangs win, they would face the winner of Mormon Trail and Moravia on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at Wayne High School in Corydon.

MURRAY GIRLS BASKETBALL Offense picks up for Mustangs in tournament win By RYAN KRONBERG OST sports editor rkronberg@osceolaiowa. com

MURRAY — It was easy for Murray sophomore point guard Kayla Wookey and her teammates to become flustered early in Thursday’s Class 1A Region 7 tournament opener against East Union.

Wookey was giving her teammates the ball in positions to score, but the shots simply were not dropping for approximately the first 12 minutes. Wookey kept giving her teammates the ball. Eventually the shots started dropping consistently as the Lady Mustangs rolled to a 52-33 win. Murray (18-5) hosted

Bluegrass Conference rival Lamoni Tuesday in a quarterfinal round matchup. Murray’s missed opportunities cost it an opportunity to take control early. The score was tied at 9-9 after one quarter. “It’s very frustrating, especially if you’re the one passing them the ball and then you’re trying to

rebound,” Wookey said. “Things don’t work your way.” Murray was 13-of-20 at the line in the opening half. Wookey and the Murray offense steadily picked apart East Union’s defense in the second half. Backdoor cuts to the basket led to numerous open looks the Lady Mustangs were able to capitalize on.

Nathan Bair’s dream of state wrestling falls short By RYAN KRONBERG OST sports editor rkronberg@osceolaiowa. com

KNOXVILLE — Clarke senior Nathan Bair had dreams of reaching the State Wrestling Tournament. Those dreams fell heartbreakingly short at Saturday’s Class 2A District 5 Tournament. Bair placed third to see his senior campaign come to a close. Bair was pinned by South Tama County’s Dalton Rosenburg in 3 minutes, 36 seconds in the match for true second. Bair’s day started with a 6-5 decision loss to Saydel’s Trevor Sprauge. Bair bounced back with an 11-2 major decision win over Albia’s Ben Mason in the match for third. Bair finishes his senior season at 33-8. Jonathan Bair fell in both matches to place fourth. He was pinned by South

Tama County’s Isaac Judge in the semifinal in 1:07. Bair then lost to Knoxville’s Riley Spaur by a 10-5 decision in the third-place match. Central Decatur advanced three to the state tournament. Trace Carson won both matches at 220 pounds to claim the title. Carson topped Knoxville’s Chase Bellon 5-0 in the semifinal. He then downed South Tama County’s Kyle Kucera 3-1 in the final. The Cardinals added a pair of second-place finishes from Wyatt Dale and Kade Kelso. Dale pinned Bondurant-Farrar’s Austin Nash in 2:53 in the semifinal at 113 pounds. He lost by a 20-4 technical fall to Albia’s Aden Reeves in the final, but did not require a wrestleback. Kelso won in the semifinal at 152 with a 9-0 major decision over Spaur, but fell to South Tama County’s Isaac Judge in the final.

Clarke issues statement Murray files financials on immigration By HILARY FERRAND

OST news editor hferrand@osceolaiowa.com

The School Board President and Superintendent for Clarke Community Schools released the following joint statement regarding immigration at Monday night’s school board meeting: “Clarke Community Schools supports the inclusiveness, educational diversity, and benefits of all students. Our school district will continue to support

and educate all students who come through Clarke’s doors to the fullest extent allowed by law.” Superintendent Steve Seid wanted to ease community concerns in the distict. “It’s a good statement, but is there a political motive behind it?” asked school board member Gerard Linskens. “Not from us,” said Seid. “We just want our families to know we will educate everyone who comes through our door.”

Betsy was so excited to get home from school that she bounced up and down all the way in the front door of her house. “I had such a GOOD day at school, mom. It was amazing!” Before her mother had time to ask Betsy about her day, quite another scene unfolded in the living room. Little brother Mikie pushed Betsy out of his way, and Betsy retaliated in the blink of an eye. She pinched him, and he began to wail loudly. “OK, young lady. That’s it. Go to your room NOW. Right NOW!” Mom wondered, How could things change from great to awful in a matter of seconds? Betsy stomped her foot in defiance. “But Mo-o-o-oom! My TEACHER said I was a GOOD girl. He even gave me a great big gold sticker to PROVE it. Mikie’s the bad one. Send HIM to HIS room!” Mikie continued to cry loudly, now clutching his arm where his sister had pinched him. Mom gathered Mike in her arms and turned to face Betsy. “GO to your ROOM. We’ll talk about this in a minute.” Seeing Betsy hesitate once more, mom pointed down the hall. “NOW!” Betsy went, shaking her head and stomping all the way, muttering “It’s not fair” under her breath (just loudly enough to be heard). A few minutes later, mom arrived in Betsy’s

room. Betsy sat (sulking) on her bed, hugging her teddy bear. “OK, honey, let’s talk about what ‘good’ REALLY means, OK?” Mom told Betsy how proud she was that she’d earned that big gold star. Then she lifted Betsy’s chin so she could look her right in the eye. “Here’s the thing: ‘Good’ is as ‘good’ does. Do you know what that means?” Mom took her finger from under Betsy’s chin and waited for her words to sink in. “I think I get it, Mom. Does it mean that I have to ACT like a gold star kid?” “Exactly. Betsy, we can say we’re good. We can even wave our gold stars around all over the place. But it’s what we do and say that matters most. Honey, do you know any good kids in your class who didn’t get gold stars today?” Betsy thought a minute, then nodded her head. “Sure. Bobby sits right behind me. He always looks for kids who’re new or don’t have any friends. Then he plays with them and sits by them at lunch and everything. I think that’s REAL good. He has a real neat sticker on his book bag. Wanta know what it says? It says ‘I do because God does’. Cool, huh?” “Sounds like he’s on to something, doesn’t it? What do you think your next step is, Betsy?” “Well, OK. I know what Bobby would do, and I guess if I want to be REALLY good I need to go say sorry to Mikie.” With that, she went down the

the most important (and eternal) recognition comes not from human beings, but from God. God created us in His image, and the applause of heaven rings out when we shine from the inside out with the light of God’s Holy Spirit. Each of our days is full of “next steps” like the one young Betsy took that day. Each step we take should be that which makes us ever stronger disciples of the One who gave His life for us – Jesus, the Christ. What “next steps” do you need to take in your life so your thoughts, words, and actions all demonstrate your discipleship to Christ more fully?

Romans 2:28 tells us, “It’s the mark of God on your heart,….. recognition comes from God,…” (The Message version) Betsy learned an important lesson that day. What we say (and the “gold stars” we earn) are important. But what’s even more important is the way we live our lives. Our thoughts, words, and actions must all demonstrate the “mark of God on our hearts” which we receive when we commit our lives in discipleship to Christ. Human recognition is great; it makes us feel valued and appreciated. But

Teachers march on the capitol By HILARY FERRAND

OST news editor hferrand@osceolaiowa.com

Sunday, Feb. 12, teachers and their supporters from all around Iowa met at the Iowa State Capitol. Hundreds of men, women and plenty of children marched to show legislators how important public school quality is to citizens of the state. “I wanted lawmakers to understand that teachers are a powerful force in their communities. Teachers have many allies. I hope lawmakers understand that collaborating with communities is a better way to find the best solutions for everyone,” said Margo Frizzell, third-grade teacher at Clarke Community Elementary School. Teachers marched in response to a state Senate File 213 and House File 291. The identically worded bills seek to change Chapter 20, collective bargaining policy, for certain public workers. The changes, aimed mostly at those working in education, would change the way employees negotiate con-

tract details, such as salary, health care and hiring and firing practices. “I am not an advocate for the basic gutting of the current Chapter 20 – and the process used bothers me greatly,” said Interstate 35 Community School Dis-

trict Superintendent Kevin Fiene. The expediency with which the lengthy bills soared through committees has raised eyebrows across the country. More worrisome is the feeling that Chapter 20 is just one piece

Clarke Talent Show recap “Counting Stars” was the title of the Clarke High School Chorus Talent Show held 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7 in the Clarke Auditorium. The Concert Choir and Chamber Choir were under the direction of Ms. Ann March and student teacher Andrew Kecy of Simpson College. The concert included music by Taylor Swift, Journey, America, Bruno Mars, One Republic, Justin Beiber, Coldplay, Green Day, Ed Sheeran, and from the Broadway show “Wicked”. Soloists included: MacKenzie Slyhuis, Samantha

Belden, Riley Elben, Cristian Valadez, Lee Ann Helgevold, Dana Pearson, Remington Cook, Brandon Chavez, Erin Gay, Jasmine Rebol, Izzy Buddenhagen, and Parker Smith. Brittany Beckett debuted her own solo composition “Stupid Questions,” while accompanying herself on the ukulele. Emcees were seniors Samantha Farlow, LeeAnn Helgevold and Cristian Valadez. Remington Cook and Dakota Newburg ran lights and Izzy Buddenhagen ran sound. A reception was held in the cafeteria following the

only so much one can give without the proper support.” Administrators intend to make that happen. “I do believe some of the proposed changes will provide a positive forum for discussion and potential savings to districts. With that said, we pride ourselves on promoting a family atmosphere with our staff at I-35,” said Fiene. “We will continue to do that by including our folks in discussions, albeit not negotiations, in finding ways to save money but still honor and respect our employees.” In Clarke, a good deal of work was put into negotiations last week to ensure the wording of education staff contracts wouldn’t change, regardless of the potential new laws on their way. “Even if this bill gets signed, we’re still going to treat our people with the utmost respect. These are our colleagues and friends,” said Seid. “We’re all in this together.”

might be.” That isn’t to say administrators are completely against all the changes. The rules established by Chapter 20 are now 43 years old. Adjusting the terms might benefit teachers and their districts. It is the way the changes are being made that are putting educators on edge. “The versions in the House and Senate were introduced with exactly the same language/verbiage,” said Fiene. “That indicates to me the decision, because of [Republicans] being the majority party in both the Senate and House, was already made behind closed doors.” Scores of Iowans agree, and regardless of party status, have flooded the capitol to air their concerns and their criticisms. “Teachers have always given more in order to help children be successful. Now it’s an expectation. Teachers will just give a little more to make it all work,” said Frizzell. “The problem is, there really is
