Water superintendent explains odd taste, odor coming from drinking water By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor


ave you noticed there’s been an odd taste and odor coming from the drinking water in Osceola lately? Apparently, you aren’t the only one. Osceola Water Superintendent Brandon Patterson addressed Osceola City Council during a Sept. 3 meeting to discuss the water issues. First off, Patterson reported West Lake, the water source for Osceola and Clarke County, is 17 inches below the spillway. The rainfall that occurred in late August didn’t even change the water level at West Lake. “Considering the weather we’ve had, I think we’re sitting pretty good, really,” Patterson said. Unusual Then, Patterson addressed the public’s concern about the unusual taste and odor of the water that has been experienced off and on during the past couple of

An Osceola chiropractor isn’t going to have his license reinstated — for now. In documents released Monday from the Iowa Board of Chiropractic, the board denied reinstating the license of Dr. StuHoven art Hoven, with Clarke County Chiropractic and Winterset Family Chiropractic. According to the Iowa Board of Chiropractic, Hoven engaged in unethical conduct or practiced harmful or detrimental to the public. It was determined Hoven had improp-

months. He reminded the council there was a severe drought last summer, and by March, West Lake was 63.5 inches below the spillway. By April, the rains came, and continued to come for the next few months. “Part of the problem with that was, whenever you have a lot of runoff, it fills the lake with nutrients — phosphorous, nitrogen,” Patterson said. “And, then, the algae feed off of that … with a lot of rainfall, we’ve had a lot of algae bloom.” Patterson said the process of “changing carbon out” of the lake occurs every two years. However, the process didn’t seem to be working and needed to be changed after a year. “It expired before the two years, so it kind of nipped us in the rear, and then we had severe taste and odor issues,” Patterson said.

er sexual conduct with, or made suggestive, lewd, lascivious or improper remarks or advances to a patient numerous times in 2005, 2009 and 2012. Hoven isn’t allowed to file for reinstatement again until he has met all of the board’s conditions concerning the future safety and welfare of patients. First complaint Hoven was issued a license to practice as a chiropractor in the state of Iowa in 2001. According to court documents, in April 2005, the board found Hoven had engaged in unethical conduct when he improperly touched the breasts of two female patients and made suggestive remarks to them. According to the board, before Hoven’s current

he color is going from green to brown. That’s the new color the garbage and single-stream recycling receptacles residents of Osceola are going to be receiving by the end of the month. Waste Management will do their final collection pickup and haul its receptacles away the week of Sept. 23. During this time period, Jim’s Sanitation will be delivering and distributing new receptacles for its waste-collection contract with the city. “The change is coming, and we just want everybody to be ready for that, and be prepared, especially when the receptacle changeout occurs,” said Osceola City Administrator/Clerk Ty Wheeler. Bins — plural Jim’s Sanitation has brown bins. The brown bin with a brown top will be for garbage, and the brown bill with a yellow top will be for recyclables. Wheeler said Waste Management will most likely follow its regular waste-pickup route during its last contract week, and then, quickly follow that up with the pickup of the receptacles. “There might be a possibility where folks have a new set of receptacles from Jim’s and the old stuff from Waste Management, but it will be just for the week,” Wheeler said. If problems should arise with the changes, Wheeler said for people to contact city hall. The contract for Jim’s Sanitation begins the first week of October.

Staying the same The waste pickup days will remain the same for everybody, even with the change of different providers. Everything regarding bulk item pickups, garbage tags for additional garbage and appliance-sticker program will remain the same. “It’s just really going to be with a different color bin,” Wheeler said. Recycling pickup will occur every other week. All the single-stream recycling information will be shown on top of the brown bin with the yellow lid. “It’s everything that we’ve been able to recycle before, plus cardboard and glass bottles, and then, of course, the aluminums and paper and plastics.” The first week of recycling pickup will be the week of Oct. 7-11. Wheeler said it would make more sense to give people time to fill up their recyclables bin. One size There will only be one size of garbage and recycling bins — 95 gallons. This is comparable to Waste Management’s large-size bin. For the garbage and recycling bins, there will be only one rate — $16.78 per month. This also includes a semi-annual, clean-up day add on.

Here we go again! By Tom Murr Osceola

I’ve heard this song before, “We have conclusive evidence.” In the last 63 years, I have heard this song twice or more from the White House. Gulf of Tonkin Resolution Forty years ago, the White House and President Johnson submitted the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution to Congress. Congress passed the resolution used to justify the Vietnam Conflict. The Aug. 4, 1964, facts are clear that the attack did not happen. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara admitted this in his book and interviews the Aug. 4 attack never happened. In an article “40th Anniversary of the 
Gulf of Tonkin Incident” by Dr. John Prados, who heads the Archive’s Vietnam and Intelligence Documentation Projects, co-directs its Iraq Documentation Project and is a Senior Research Fellow on national security affairs, including foreign affairs, intelligence and military subjects found no evidence of this attack on Aug. 4, 1964. Further evidence concerning the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution was written by Martin Fletcher on Nov. 7, 2001. The LBJ tape “confirms Vietnam war error.” In the book, President Johnson admitted in a secret tape recording that

Continued from Page 1

the incident he used to win congressional approval for the Vietnam War probably never happened. Congress approved a resolution authorizing the President to take “all necessary steps, including the use of force” to help America’s southeast Asian allies. Johnson used the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution to drag America ever deeper into the Vietnam War and death of more 57,000 American lives. Second Song “WMD’S in Iraq” The song was the same in 21st century. The White House, President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair charged that Iraqi had WMD’S. On March 19, 2003, it resulted in the military campaign of Operation Iraqi Freedom. This occurred after a prolonged United Nations inspection in Iraq. The United Nations Security Council members consisting of the United States, Britain, France, Russia and other members demanded a search for WMD’S in Iraq. After lengthy period of time, in which the U.N. looked for WMDs in Iraq, they found no evidence. However, the White House and Prime Minister Blair would not accept the report. In Time Magazine, Mark Thompson wrote this headline story on Sept. 6, 2012, “Iraq: How the CIA Says It Blew It on Saddam’s

WMD.” He wrote: “Now that we’re out of Iraq, the CIA has come clean on how it came to be bamboozled about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) ferrets over at the National Security Archive (NSA) petitioned for, and got, the CIA’s equivalent of the dogate-my-homework.” Bottom line, from the CIA’s point of view, Saddam used to lie about possessing WMDs, so we believed he still was. Unfortunately, the U.S. went to war based largely on that false intelligence. And 4,486 U.S. troops, 318 allies and untold thousands of Iraqis died in the ensuing conflict. So Americans hear the same old song about Syria. The question will be are we going to make it No. 1 hit again. Does the White House have the voice recording or email from President Bashar al Assad to use the chemical weapon? I believe this White House should follow the leadership of President Kennedy. The White House and President Kennedy showed the world the map of Cuba and where the missiles sites were being built. Will this White House show America people the truth of the Syria attack upon its citizens?

stream recycling will be such a success that the different size of garbage bins will become more easily available for usage. “This is so much easier now than it has been to recycle,” Wheeler said. “You just throw it in. There’s no sorting. It’s just almost like throwing something in the garbage — just with the recyclable material.”

Wheeler said he wanted to emphasize the city’s desire to “up” the recycling utilization. “With the curbside bins that we have now, we weren’t recycling close to half of what Corning was recycling, or what we’d been told Corning recycles using the single-stream bins. And, they’re not even half our size,” he said.

Disinfecting The water department “feeds” chlorine dioxide as a disinfectant at West Lake, Patterson said. The department also monitors the byproduct of the disinfectant. Filters help remove the byproduct. Patterson said the carbon was “worn out” and it couldn’t “feed enough chemical” to take care of the taste and odor of the water. In July, the water depart-

“Administratively, it’s far easier to track and maintain one size of bin versus three. We had had several issues with the three sizes where folks were being charged either for a large and they didn’t have one or vice versa,” Wheeler said. Utilize recycling He added, there is the hope, someday, single-

ment implemented new carbon to help treat the water supply. “We thought we were going to sail through the winter, and everything was going to be good,” Patterson said. “Well, then we hit record temperatures the last week, week and a-half. So, once again, our algae in the lake is extremely not normal with the amount that we have.” Finding a solution Chlorine dioxide is still the water department’s primary disinfectant, but the

department is maxed out on the chemicals that help treat the water’s taste and odor. Another part of the problem, Patterson said, is there are different strains of algae not usually seen at the lake. Patterson said the department is working with its engineer to find a solution. There are various solutions, including building a basin below the plant to help with additional treatment. “It all boils down to contact time with the chemical, and we just don’t have a lot,” Patterson said.

not apply for reinstatement until he completed a comprehensive assessment regarding professional sexual misconduct. It was further ordered that not until Hoven has completed the provisions of his suspension will the board consider any application for reinstatement. The assessment took place at the Behavioral Medicine Institute (BMI) of Atlanta, Ga. Hearing A licensure reinstatement hearing was held July 10 in Des Moines. BMI found Hoven was unsafe to practice, and he followed up by attending treatment at Acumen, one of the providers recommended by BMI. Hoven filed an application for reinstatement March 1, which was only four days into his treatment at Acumen, even though he had completed less than a week of his three-week session with Acumen. During testimony, Hoven admitted he filed the application early so he could get on the board’s March agenda. In an analysis from the board, it states, “the troubling aspect of (Hoven’s) application is how closely it tracks his application for reinstatement after the board suspended his license in 2005. ... The board suspend-

ed respondent’s license on April 27, 2005. From that point, respondent started a race to reinstatement.” Acumen recommended Hoven return to practice so that it could monitor and assess compliance in future sessions. However, Acumen recognized the board ultimately decides whether to reinstate a license. Final follow-up The final follow-up for Hoven at Acumen is scheduled March 12-14, 2014. If Acumen issues a report stating Hoven is safe to return to practice after the session, he could return to BMI for a comprehensive in-person evaluation. If BMI finds Hoven is safe to return to practice, he may file an application for reinstatement with the board. Hoven may not file until all of the conditions are met. From the July 10 hearing, Hoven is ordered to pay $75 for fees associated with conducting the disciplinary hearing and $68.75 for the court reporter. He is ordered to remit $143.75 for these expenses within 30 days of receipt of the bill. Mondays board documents states, “The board is not willing to risk returning (Hoven) to practice before he can prove to the board that he is not a danger to the public welfare. He has yet to do that.”

suspension, he was still allowed to practice but must have had a female, nonfamily member chaperon at all times when providing treatment to female patients. Hoven was not allowed to perform any soft-tissue chiropractic treatment to female clients on or around the breast. His license was then returned to full privileges in July 2010. Most recent complaints The most recent allegations arose from a complaint by a female patient who said Hoven had touched her breasts during a chiropractic visit Feb. 14, 2012. According to the board, on May 11, 2012, another female patient reported she went to Hoven for chiropractic treatment in 2009 and claimed he “cupped her breast during one session and rubbed against her during a second.” The woman didn’t make a complaint in 2009 because she was “embarrassed.” However, in May 2012, the woman’s husband saw a television newscast about Hoven and a complaint was filed against him. The board decided to suspend Hoven’s license. Court documents further state, Hoven’s current suspension meant he could

Essential tools for parents to navigate teen health issues

(BPT) — Parents of teenagers face a delicate balancing act between taking care of their teens and allowing them freedom to make their own decisions. Teens themselves seem to understand the importance of good health; in a survey by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) two out of three surveyed teens said they worry a lot or a great deal about staying healthy. However, when it comes to handling health issues, parents need to remain in the driver’s seat. “Parents need to know that it’s going to be okay,” says internationally recognized author and parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba, Ed.D. “Even though the teen years are a difficult time, we can’t let the kids take the lead, especially with their health. Now more than ever parents must be vigilant and involved. There are actually some simple ways to help guide them - and not try to control them.”While teens face many health-related issues, experts recommend that parents focus on three key teen health issues and consider some simple approaches to instill good habits solutions: 1. Oral Health Parents and teens both know that brushing and flossing are essential for good oral health. But

they may be unaware that crooked teeth (also called malocclusion), if left untreated, can lead to periodontal disease and premature wearing of the teeth. Crooked teeth can put abnormal stress on teeth and jaws and cause difficulty with effectively biting, chewing and speaking. While straight, attractive teeth can certainly boost a teen’s mental health and self esteem, teeth straightening is clearly much more than just a cosmetic issue. It’s easier than ever to straighten teeth, with choices like Invisalign Teen (www. that eliminate many of the negatives associated with traditional braces. Because the plastic, removable appliances are nearly invisible, teens no longer have to worry about having the conspicuous look of metal braces. Plus, removing the aligners allows wearers easier access to brushing and flossing, which reduces the risk of tooth decay. As the mouth is truly the health gateway to the body, experts suggest a complete oral health routine including brushing, flossing and regular visits to the dentist

and orthodontist. 2. Stress Extreme stress isn’t good for anyone, and today’s teens have more on their plates than ever before from academic and extracurricular commitments and college preparation to family obligations, friendships and even working outside the home. Doctors polled in the NFID study reported stress-related conditions were among the topics teens and parents were most likely to bring up at their annual checkups. In addition to short-term physical symptoms like

increased heart rate and breathing, headache, neck stiffness and pain, and stomach upset, stress can create long-term problems, too. Over time, stress can affect the immune system, heart, blood pressure, lungs, reproductive organs and stomach. In teens, it can make existing acne even worse. One simple solution is more exercise. Getting off the couch or away from the computer screen and engaging in physical activity is a great stress buster. Exercise releases tension and excess energy, and provides physical and cosmetic benefits, too. 3. Diet and weight More than a third of American children and teens are obese or overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Health experts agree, however, that weight is only one reason to emphasize a healthy diet for teens. Good nutrition is just as important for teens as it is for young children, since teenagers’ bodies go through stressful development and mentally they are creating eating habits that can follow them throughout life. The single most important way parents can teach teens about health, diet and lifestyle habits is to model those habits themselves, ex-

perts agree. Involve teens in meal-planning and preparation, demonstrating good nutrition and healthful choices. Encourage physical activity by engaging the entire family in fun, healthful exercise such as cycling, hiking or playing sports together. Just talking about weight, diet and appearance is not only not enough, it can actually be detrimental to teens’ health. A study by the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis found that when parents focus on weight, size and appearance when talking to teens, they may actually increase a teen’s risk of engaging in unhealthy weight-control measures - such as fad diets or binge eating. Even though they’re approaching adulthood, teens still need parental guidance and support when it comes to health, but not interference. The NFID study found that 60 percent of teens could come up with at least one reason to ditch their annual checkup, with a third thinking they only need to see a doctor when sick. But of those who did get a checkup, 84 percent of doctors surveyed said exams went better when parents took a supportive stance outside the exam room.

Getting hipper all the time Replacement hipsters, says the Urban Dictionary, are older folks who dress in vintage duds that 20-somethings try to find in thrift shops so they can look just as not cool. And hip replacements? Well, they’re the get-you-up-anddancing-again joint repair procedure that’s done more than 230,000 times a year in the U.S., usually the result of osteoarthritis — the erosion of cartilage between joint bones and of the bones themselves. Sometimes it’s done to repair a hip fracture, after a fall. And although 80 percent of replacements last a lifetime without revision, not needing one would be even better. So get hip to our recommendations: —The higher your red blood cells’ level of omega-3 fatty acids, the less likely you are to have a hip fracture. Getting enough from food and supplements also reduces bodywide inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, and that eases joint pain. We like DHA omega-3 in salmon and ocean trout and in algal oil supplements (go for 4 ounces of fish three times a week, or a 900 mg supplement daily). —Practice tai chi; the Chinese martial art promotes balance and protects against falls. —Do weight training. Light, repetitive exercises using hand weights or stretch bands help protect your bones. —Eat a diet rich in dark leafy greens and canned salmon and sardines with bones. They’re loaded with bone-building calcium, especially when you team them with magnesium-rich foods (almonds, spinach

Weekly healthy tips Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Dr. Michael Roizen, M.D.

and soy beans) and vitamin D-3. Take 1,000 IU daily until you get your blood level checked; then take the amount you need. SWEATING OUT TOXINS Recent studies indicate that with a minor name change, the band Blood, Sweat & Tears could have toured as the cleanest rock ‘n’ roll group ever! You see, Blood, Sweat and Urine are three major vehicles for moving potentially harmful toxins out of the body (tears do clear out toxins, though just a small amount). Your blood carries impurities to the lungs, where some are exhaled; urine washes impurities out through the kidneys; and sweat — it pours out of two to four million sweat glands all over your body and helps to clear out some of the most dangerous toxins you ingest. New studies reveal that hormone-disruptors in plastics called BPA and phthalates in everything from shampoos to soaps and detergents appear to be preferentially excreted through sweat. And you’re lucky to get rid of them: They’re linked to everything from abnormal testicular development to obesity, ADHD and cancer. To get the cleansing benefits of sweat: —Enjoy a sauna, steam bath and/or a hot bath. You’ll detoxify while you de-stress — another great

boost to your health. —Go aerobic. Aim for at least 10,000 steps a day; some at an intense, sweaty pace; take a spin class or play tennis. Any activity (almost every day, please!) that makes you perspire for at least 20 minutes is beneficial. —Get passionate! You can lower your risk for heart disease, improve your mood, fuel your muscles and break a sweat with regular tumbles in the hay (try for 20 minutes here, too). BREAKFAST BONANZA There was a study in the news not long ago that suggested if you skip breakfast you’re 27 percent more likely to have a fatal heart attack. But it was just an attention-grabbing headline. The actual write-in survey (not even a controlled study) said that men who report skipping breakfast are generally younger than those who do eat breakfast, are more likely to be smokers, unmarried, less physically active and drink more alcohol. Sounds like they surveyed the frat boys from “Animal House.” But for nonsmokers, moderate drinkers and regular exercisers of both genders, breakfast IS a smart — even essential — part of a healthy lifestyle. If you eat healthful foods and your timing is good, breakfast can help you burn fat and protect or help build muscles. And you stabilize your

blood sugar levels after the all-night fast (no late-night eating; it’s also not smart for heart health, weight control or blood sugar stability). Steady blood sugar levels may reduce your risk for cancer or reduce the fuel supply that makes cancers, such as prostate and breast, become more aggressive. Unfortunately, about 34 percent of adults never eat breakfast, and 50 percent of middle-schoolers and 64 percent of high-school-age kids don’t either. When you do, according to the USDA, you eat breads and bagels (22 percent); cold cereal (17 percent); and pastries (15 percent). The smarter choices are: high-fiber whole grains, fresh fruit, high-quality protein such as egg whites and low-fat dairy. Skip processed cereals loaded with added sugar and made from grain that isn’t 100 percent whole. STAY AWAY FROM HYPOGLYCEMIA What do Patti LaBelle and Drew Carey have in common? They both have type 2 diabetes and have gotten their blood sugar under control by exercising, eating right and taking their diabetes medications as prescribed. If you have type 2 diabetes and lower your blood sugar to near normal levels, the benefits are huge. You slash the risk of diabetes complications such as heart disease and nerve damage, and also protect yourself from an increased risk for brain dysfunction and even cancer. But going too low (that is, below 70mg/dL) is also risky; severe hypoglycemia (dizziness, nausea, fuzzy think-

ing, even coma) happens to around 10 percent of folks with type 2. Insulin therapy is more often associated with the problem, but oral meds also can trigger it. Exercise without adjusting your meds or diet, not taking your medication properly or failing to eat regularly can also cause your blood sugar levels to fall. Both severe bouts of hypoglycemia and consistently having blood sugar levels that are just a bit low may double your risk for heart disease. So how do you hit the right balance of blood sugar control? Frequent blood sugar monitoring lets you keep tabs on how your meds and food are affecting you. Following a low glycemic index diet (see sharecare. com) also helps, as does taking your medications as prescribed. Aim for glucose levels of 70-100, and check with your doctor regularly to make sure your A1Cs (an average of your blood sugar level over three months) are in a healthy range. OF ALL THE NERVE: FIBROMYALGIA UNMASKED When the Atlanta Falcons’ Tim Green retired in 1994, he wrote (in his book “The Dark Side of the Game”) about all the burners and stingers he’d had to deal with — that’s searing nerve pain in the shoulders, neck and arms. But we don’t think he’s any tougher than the 5 million North Americans with fibromyalgia — an often-devastating condition that triggers a variety of symptoms, including chronic pain, tingling in fingers and toes and fatigue

— who go out every day to make sure their nerve pain doesn’t keep them sidelined from life. No one is sure what causes fibromyalgia, and effective ways to ease symptoms have been hard to come by — until now. A small but carefully done study recently revealed that almost half of folks diagnosed with fibromyalgia actually may have something called small fiber polyneuropathy — that is, damage to peripheral nerves. And unlike fibromyalgia, SFPN has a clear pathology, can be diagnosed with a biopsy and is caused by specific medical conditions, many of which can be treated and even cured. The causes of SFPN can include: prediabetes and diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, elevated blood lipids (including cholesterol and triglycerides), celiac disease, hepatitis, HIV, lupus and thyroid dysfunction. That means if you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you may be able to identify what’s triggering your chronic pain and treat it effectively. So talk to your doctor about seeing a neurologist to rule SFPN in or out. It could be a gamechanger. *** 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.

Cardinals control second half in win over I-35 By SCOTT VICKER

OST sports editor •

LEON — Central Decatur overcame an 18-6 halftime deficit, controlling the second half of play in a 33-26 win over Interstate 35 here on Friday. The Cardinals improved to 2-0 for the season, while Interstate 35 drops to 0-2. Interstate 35 took advantage of five Central Decatur turnovers in the first half in mounting the 18-6 lead. “We probably feel pretty lucky we were that close,” Central Decatur head coach Jon Pedersen said. “We gave them the ball two or three times in the red zone. They came out really aggressive and played well. I was impressed with how well they played. We made some adjustments at halftime and our energy got up. We played real well

after that.” The Cardinals scored 27 unanswered points in the second half to build a 3318 lead. Senior Wyman Reed did the bulk of the damage for Central Decatur’s potent rushing attack, accumulating 176 yards on 26 carries. He averaged nearly seven yards per carry. “Wyman Reed had a heck of a night,” Pedersen said. “What made everything flow for us was Wyman’s running. He’s a good, balanced kid. He carried 26 times, so obviously we were going to him and he was getting stronger and stronger as the game went on.” Reed never found the end zone in the game, but Trenton Wells crossed the goal line a total of five times — four times running the ball and once on a punt return.

“Trenton Wells made big plays for us,” Pedersen said. “Maybe the biggest play of the game was a punt they had, it was a short punt and everyone got out of the way. Trenton ran up and got it on the run and scored a touchdown. That got our momentum going.” Wells carried the ball 15 times for 80 yards. For Central Decatur, the defensive game plan started with containing Interstate 35 quarterback Briar Vogel. But, Pedersen also knew the Roadrunners had other players who could change the game. “We knew they had three gamebreakers between Jaylan White, Briar Vogel and Alex Middleton,” he said. “We knew we were going to have our hands full with that. They’re able to hit you in a lot of different spots in

the run game. Where they hit us a couple of times was on deep passes. The whole idea is to keep Briar under control. He’s a really good athlete.” Vogel was held in check throwing the ball, finishing 4-of-21 passing for 85 yards and one touchdown before leaving the game with an injury in the fourth quarter. He ran the ball 14 times for 58 yards prior to leaving. Jaylan White replaced Vogel at quarterback and finished 3-of-6 for 25 yards and one score. White picked up 56 yards rushing on six carries with one score. Middleton carried the ball 20 times for 61 yards and one score. Zach Goering led the team in receiving with three catches for

Murrary throttles Ankeny Christian in 60-point victory Second half sinks Clarke By KYLE WILSON

OST sports editor kwilson@crestonnews. com

MURRAY — The Murray Mustangs scored seven touchdowns in the opening quarter Friday evening en route to a dominant 68-7 victory over Ankeny Christian Academy at Mustang Field. “We couldn’t stop them,” said ACA head coach Fred Buell. “It was obvious early on we were not going to be able to compete with them physically.” Nothing showed that physical disparity better than a first-quarter punt block by Murray’s Seth Nerness. The 6-foot, 4-inch Nerness powered right past the offensive lineman and blocked the punt with his big right hand. “I just used speed and power and went right through (the lineman),” Nerness said.

“I got close enough to jump, and when I did the ball hit my arm and it was just an Easter egg hunt for the ball after that.” Nerness hunted the football down, scooped it into his arms and sped 23 yards for the touchdown to give Murray an early 26-0 lead. That was just one of several big plays in the opening quarter for Murray. Murray’s quick-footed running back and return man Andrew Rider had several big plays in first quarter, scoring three touchdowns including two on punt returns. One return went for 37 yards, the other for 39 yards. Those were his eighth and ninth punt returns for TD of his career — which moves him into first place all time in Iowa football history (8-player or 11 player). (See related story on Rider’s recordbreaking year)

Murray led 47-0 after the first quarter — something Murray head coach Keith Shields was pleased with after the game. “Getting a good start was something we emphasized all week in practice,” Shields said. “The first quarters the past two weeks have been sluggish. We didn’t play poorly in those first quarters — we just made self-inflicting mistakes. Tonight was a much better start.” Murray tacked on two more touchdowns in the second quarter including a 57yard scamper by Nerness and 60-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Rider. Murray led 62-0 at halftime and had run only eight offensive plays. Murray’s reserves played the entire second half under continuous clock. Ankeny Christian Academy did manage to score a touchdown

late when running back Luke Alessio punched it in from 1-yard out. Dominant performance The stat book best reveals Murray’s dominance Friday evening as Ankeny Christian Academy had negative seven yards on 32 carries. Their offense never crossed midfield against Murray’s starters. Offensively, Nerness led the Mustangs on the ground — rushing twice for 77 yards and two touchdowns. Murray’s Jack Jones had eight carries for 45 yards. Murray’s Sam Rockhold also took a fake punt 51 yards for touchdown, springing himself free on a powerful stiff arm. Defensively, Murray had 16 tackles for loss. George Barber led the Mustangs defensive attack with four solo tackles and one assist. Murray (2-1, 2-0) travels to Grandview Park Baptist 7 p.m. Friday.

Murray’s Rider having record-breaking year By KYLE WILSON

OST sports writer kwilson@crestonnews. com

MURRAY — Murray’s Andrew Rider is breaking so many records, frankly, it’s hard to keep track of them all. The quick-footed senior could not be stopped Friday evening in Murray’s dominating 68-7 victory

over Ankeny Christian Academy. Rider scored four touchdowns in the contest. Two came on punt returns for TDs — one for 37, another for 39 yards. Those were his eighth and ninth punt returns for TD of his career — which moves him into first place all time in Iowa football history (8-player or 11

player). “The big reason he’s such a good return man is his vision,” Murray head coach Keith Shields said. “He has the ability to make a cut, and then re-accelerate as good as

anyone we have ever had at Murray. And of course, Andrew would give credit to his teammates for the blocking he’s had. Knowing Please see RIDER, page 8A

The Clarke Indians built a 21-6 lead, before seeing that lead shrink to 21-19 at halftime over Saydel here on Friday. And then Saydel took over in the second half, as the Eagles went on to hand the Indians their second straight loss in a 47-26 game. “Overall, I thought we played more disciplined than the first two weeks, we just didn’t play a complete game,” Clarke head coach Michael Kline said. “We played well the first half, and did not play well in the second half.” In building the early lead, Clarke took advantage of several Saydel turnovers. The Eagles fumbled on the first play of the game, and Clarke took advantage with a touchdown. After the kickoff, Saydel fumbled on the third play, which led to another Clarke touchdown. But Saydel took advantage of a Clarke turnover and penalties to get right back into the game. Eagle quarterback Clayton Sommers proved difficult to stop, putting up 226

yards rushing on 20 carries with two touchdowns. He only complete 2-of-7 passes, but both completions went for touchdowns. “Their quarterback, they ran a dive play and we did a great job of tackling the dive man, and then he’d pull it and run behind,” Kline said. “We did not do a good job of tackling the quarterback. He’s a quick kid, shifty, but we didn’t make enough plays in the second half.” The Indians dealt with bad field position the entire third quarter, but still had an opportunity to drive down the field with 8:00 left in the fourth quarter, trailing just 32-27. But, Saydel picked off a Dalton Sweeney pass on the first play of the drive, and took control of the ball at the Clarke 10-yard line. Saydel eventually punched the ball into the end zone and later added another insurance touchdown. The Indians picked up 237 yards on the ground in the game, led by Sweeney’s 119 yards. But Clarke only accounted for 43 yards through the

tackles. Goering, Vogel and White each recorded one interception. Central Decatur was led by Peyton Gilbert’s eight tackles, while Monty Dowell finished with six. “I thought our defensive line played well, and our

One of them, he literally just ripped the ball out of the kid’s hands.”

Clarke, now 1-2 for the season, opens Class 2A District 6 play Friday at home against Class 2A No. 4-ranked Albia (2-0). “I think it’s a great opportunity for us,” Kline said. “No one expects anything out of us in this game. They don’t expect us to come out and beat Albia, but having them on our home field, that’s why you play the game. Weirder things have happened in sports. Hopefully we can improve on things we’re working on in practice this week and have a good show.”

Poor substitute for marriage Pastor Sheldon Lorenson

As a pastor, I am finding more young couples choosing to live together before marriage. It seems so logical: live together, see if it works, and then get married. Except things just don’t work out that way. Twelve years ago, half of the twenty-somethings surveyed by the National Marriage Project agreed with the statement, “You would only marry someone if he or she agreed to live together with you first, so that you could find out whether you really get along.” Their reasoning was simple: “Moving in together before marriage was a good way to avoid divorce.” Since then, the percentage agreeing with the statement has probably increased. But, what has not increased is the correctness of that justification for cohabitation. Because it was wrong then, and it is just as wrong now, as a New York Times opinion piece points out. You heard me correctly: the New York Times. In a piece entitled “The Downside of Cohabitating Before Marriage,” psychologist Meg Jay of the University of Virginia describes what is known as the “cohabitation effect:” “Couples who cohabit before marriage ... tend to be less satisfied with their marriages — and more likely to divorce — than couples who do not.” There are many possible explanations for the cohabitation effect. For instance, “cohabiters [are] less conventional about marriage and thus more open to divorce.” Or, it may be related to religious factors. But as Jay tells us, “at least some of the risks may lie in cohabitation itself.” The reason why this is the case comes down to one word: commitment. Most cohabiting couples, when asked why they moved in together, reply “it just happened.” According to Jay, “Moving from dating to sleeping over to sleeping over a lot to cohabitation can be a gradual slope, one not marked by rings or ceremonies or sometimes

even a conversation. Couples bypass talking about why they want to live together and what it will mean.” Even setting aside questions about the morality of cohabitation, the differences between this “process” and the decision to get married are obvious — so obvious that it’s hard to see how cohabitation can prepare anyone for marriage. And that’s before you take into account the “different, unspoken — even unconscious — agendas” of the cohabiting partners. While “women are more likely to view cohabitation as a step toward marriage ... men are more likely to see it as a way to test a relationship or to postpone commitment.” One of Jay’s clients told her that she “felt like [she] was on this multiyear, never-ending audition to be his wife.” They got married once they hit their thirties, not because of a newfound commitment on his part but because at that point “We had all this furniture. We had our dogs and all the same friends.” Breaking up seemed more difficult than getting married. But a year later, the same client was looking for a divorce lawyer. Nonetheless, most Americans see cohabitation as a “step toward marriage,” despite ample evidence that cohabitation is a poor substitute, and even worse preparation, for marriage. If there’s a young person in your life considering cohabitation, point him or her to Jay’s article. As Jay writes, she’s all “for young adults knowing that ... moving in with someone can increase your chances of making a mistake.” Follow God’s pattern laid out in the Scriptures. You will be glad you did.

Recognition week scheduled this week The week beginning Sept. 8 has been designated as National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week to acknowledge the dedication and vital role of direct support professionals. Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the primary providers of publiclyfunded, long-term support for millions of people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Mosaic in South Central Iowa will be recognizing our DSPs with cards of appreciation along with chamber bucks to spend locally. We encourage others to recognize National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week by thanking a DSP you know or see out in the community. “The Direct Support Professionals at Mosaic are the core of our mission to promote inclusion, independence and involvement of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities among the community,”
