School board approves purchasing four new school buses By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

Four new school buses will soon be pulling up to Clarke Community School District. During a Clarke School Board meeting Sept. 9, the board unanimously approved purchasing four new in-stock school buses from Thomas Bus Sales for $80,911 each. “You have to do something. You have to do something,” said Clarke Transportation Director Rick Perin, who started in the position in July. “As a novice coming into this from the outside, I look at it and I say you’ve got to do something. It’s obvious. Anybody

can see that’s obvious … anything that you buy is going to be helpful.” A month ago, Perin recommended the board should purchase six new buses. His recommendation was based on the quality of the district’s six oldest buses. Clarke’s oldest bus, No. 19, is 25 years old. The bus doesn’t go on routes and is for emergency use only. Decision making The board discussed the district’s current projects and other projects in the works that will need to be paid for in the future. “I feel a little pushed and hurried on this, and I think I’m comfortable buying four buses,” said Board member Larry Gibbs. Board member James Bair said he was

Bad behavior repercussions Bad behavior by students on school buses has been discussed during Clarke School Board meetings. During a Sept. 9 board meeting, school-bus driver Tom Murr said Clarke Elementary Principal Jill Kiger has implemented bus-riding training during recess time. If students are reported to be a problem on a bus, they miss out on recess, because they have to learn about proper bus-riding behavior. “It is very effective. I want to tell you,” Murr said.

not comfortable with buying four buses. “I think we can get by with three buses,” Bair said. “I think we can be looking for good, used buses like we’ve done in the past through the years. I think three gets us where we need. That’s almost a-quarter of a

million dollars that we’re spending on something we haven’t spent in the past. I think we need to be more diligent about keeping our

CCRC receives later than expected court date By AMY HANSEN

OST news editor • ahansen@osceolaiowa.com

Clarke County Reservoir Commission (CCRC) is going to be waiting longer than expected to get its day in court. A court date in Clarke County was set March for 10 to determine if CCRC can authorize declaratory judgment in its watershed project. “That’s obviously later than we would like, but

that was what worked out with the court administrator’s schedule and the attorneys. That was the compromise, if you will,” said Dave Beck, the project’s coordinator, during a CCRC board meeting Sept. 12. Lake project There is an ongoing CCRC watershed project that will provide a water supply for Osceola and Southern Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) with an 816-acre lake in

Clarke County. The reservoir project could provide 2.2 million gallons of water per day. The total project cost for the reservoir is estimated at $37.6 million. Funding for the project includes many sources, especially funding from local option sales taxes (LOST). Right now, CCRC is going through the process of declaratory judgment with Please see COURT DATE, Page 4

High School Principal Kim Antisdel. “And, the data is proving that kids are staying here. They’re not dropping out.” Wake-up call For the 2009-10 school year, Clarke’s graduation rate was 76.19 percent. “That became a real concern,” Antisdel said. “It was a concern of the board. It was a concern of the

Clarke elementary students to participate in state’s health walk There has been a push the past few years to get Iowa to be a healthier state. This is coordinated by a yearly walk to help promote active lifestyles in community. Last year, Clarke Elementary School took part in the initiative by walking 1 kilometer.

If you are interested in signing up to walk with Clarke Elementary School, go to http://www.iowahealthieststate.com/healthiest-state-walk Their team name is “7 Habits Healthy Walk.” You may go to the above site and enter your own team, as well, whether it’s a business team, organization team or even the downtown businesses teaming up to do a walk.

Time for your flu vaccine Everyone ages six months and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as the vaccine is available, according to Clarke County Public Health. The 2013 flu vaccine will protect against three different flu viruses: A) H1N1, A)H3N2, and B. Clarke County Public Health, 134 W. Jefferson St., will be holding Walk-in Wednesday clinics during office hours 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. to give flu vaccines beginning Sept. 25. No appointment is needed. Kelly Bailey, RN, said, “both flu mist and flu shots are available for children and adults. The flu mist is for healthy people age 2-49, who are not pregnant or do not have health problems. The flu mist contains live but weakened influenza vaccine.” The flu shot is for everyone ages six months and older. Infants, the elderly, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions – such as heart, lung or kidney disease or a weakened immune system who

get the flu — can have a high fever and pneumonia. This can make existing medical conditions worse. It can cause diarrhea and seizures in children. Each year, thousands of people die from seasonal influenza and even more require hospitalization. By getting vaccinated, you can protect yourself from influenza and may also avoid spreading influenza to others. It takes up to two weeks for protection to develop after the shot. Protection lasts about a year. The cost is $28. There is no charge for individuals with their Medicare card and Medicare Part B coverage. Clarke County Public Health is able to offer children (six months to 18 years) no cost flu vaccine by appointment if they are eligible for the Vaccine for Children program while supplies last. Public Health will also bill Blue Cross/Blue Shield Health Insurance. Call Clarke County Public Health at 641-342-3724 for more information.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

NEW BUSES:

Information about USagain donation bins By The Rev. Philip Coe Osceola

Recently, our community has become a site for the placement of clothing-donation bins labeled as “USagain.” These bins are green and white in color and have doors for depositing used clothes and shoes. On the front, in small letters, it does disclose they are a “for-profit” organization. However, few people might even take notice while thinking they are donating to charity. On the Internet, USagain reports to be centered in the Chicago-area, and is

promoting its collecting of used clothing for the limiting of old clothing ending up in landfills, and for distribution of usable clothes abroad. However, they then proceed to bundle used clothes for sale to the highest bidder, who then resells them to impoverished countries and people at nominal costs. Little of it gets directed to humanitarian relief or charity. Our community has a nonprofit organization that already collects and makes available to people in need, clothes and other donations at charitable costs. Cross Ministries does a

fine job for the whole county, and the handling of leftover clothing and materials for recycling, while also providing some employment or opportunities to volunteer in assisting those in need. The organization behind USagain has reportedly been involved in a number of questionable involvements globally and in Denmark, where they originated, including tax evasion and money laundering through offshore accounts of lucrative profits. Please be aware and consider this when making donations of items to authentic and trusted charities.

eye on that busing situation out there.” Full usage According to Perin, school buses have a 12year “run” for usage. The last time the district bought a new school bus was in 2007. He said if the district purchases used buses, they already have

many miles and “wear and tear” on them. Used buses don’t have full warranty, either. However, four new buses will help the current situation and get the district “past a crunch,” Perin said. Throughout the board’s discussion, Bair came to support the idea of purchasing four new buses. Board members asked

Clarke Superintendent Benita Gonzales her opinion on the bus situation. “Four buses — I think it gets us in a great position this year … I think we need to get ourselves into a rotation that is not going to kill us in the future when these four come up. So, I think along the way we start adding on,” she said.

COURT DATE: Continued from Page 1

the watershed project. Declaratory judgment is a court review for acquiring land for a public project. It authorizes CCRC to purchase land from voluntary sellers and exercise eminent domain for involuntary sellers within the area of the watershed project. Court CCRC members were hoping to have the declaratory-judgment court date scheduled in October. However, it’s now going to be six months later than anticipated. Beck said to expect three days in court, and a decision from the judge on declaratory judgment could come in the middle of May.

“From there, we can start moving forward, assuming we get the decision that the commission is looking for,” he said. “So, that’s where we’re at.” Scheduled meetings With the court date scheduled in March, CCRC member and Director of SIRWA Dan McIntosh asked if there would be a lot going on with the project until then. Beck said there is still work to do, but that doesn’t mean the commission needs to meet every month. A decision was made for CCRC to meet every other month — for a period of time, at least. The next CCRC board meeting is scheduled Nov. 14. The meeting after that

will be held Jan. 9. However, if an issue arises within that time period, another board meeting could be scheduled. West Lake issues Commission members discussed the current drought in Iowa, and how it’s affecting West Lake, the current water source for Osceola and Clarke County. CCRC member Sandy Kale reported the water level at West Lake was 18 inches below the spillway. “Boy, when it’s down as low as it is, we just can’t get things accomplished,” said CCRC member Norm Lust. “Not that we’re not trying, it’s just the idea that Mother Nature’s got to help us. West Lake is in one of those areas, again, where it’s getting really touchy.”

GRADUATION RATE: Continued from Page 1

from certified staff members. Grades are also updated by staff every two weeks. The school’s advisory program informs students of their grades every week to let them know where their grades are standing at. The school also has a 20day summer school program in June that’s based on credit recovery. Major improvement In the 2010-11 school year, the graduation rate went from 76.19 percent during the previous school year to 90.5 percent.

Pictured is an airplane at the airport in Osceola.

“I think it’s the result of a lot of hard work from a lot of people,” Antisdel said. “When we first saw this graduation rate in ‘09, we started a half-time, at-risk program, which has moved into a full-time, at-risk program.” She added, the district’s juvenile court liaisons, counselors and staff have done a great job with counseling students to stay in school. In the 2011-12 school year, the graduation rate was 89 percent, which is an approximately one percent drop from the previous year. Antisdel said the slight

percentage drop could have been from a single student not completing the requirements. Highest year The most recently completed school year, 2012-13, had the best graduation rate Clarke has seen in years — 94.5 percent. “We’re trying to put some things in place, and I guess, all the hard work that we have done has had benefits,” Antisdel said. While Antisdel said she doesn’t know if the district will ever attain 100 percent graduation rate, she did add, “When we’re in the 90s, that’s just pretty darn good.”

A free concert by musical artist Rachel Holder is planned Tuesday, Sept. 24, at Lakeside Casino. Food will also be available.  Rachel Holder, a pro-

largest logbook, which can be accessed online. The Hiz Kidz program is offered to all Clarke students at the elementary school and meets from 3-6 p.m. Monday evenings during the school year. Hiz Kidz participants engage in activities and games, study basicmoral concepts, receive a meal and get help with their homework.

Main Street in Osceola. Cross Ministries was nominated by Jim and Mary Ellen Kimball who said that “If if were not for the generosity of Cross Ministries to let us use furniture, costumes, and construction materials, we could not have undertaken our two low-budget films.” The film used “a truckload of hospital equipment that Mike cheerfully loaded up, delivered to the film location, and unloaded... then a week later picked everything up.” A Shining Star Award is given every month.

Finding our faults By Chuck DeVos

Lead pastor LifePoint Church

I have a problem. Actually, you have it, too. Well, at least, I’m guessing you have this problem. Most people do. What problem? Well, it’s kind of embarrassing to tell you, but here it is: I have this tendency to see other people’s faults while ignoring my own. You too? That’s what I thought. We all have faults. I do. You do. We all do. But our tendency is to quickly see the faults in others while we conveniently ignore our own faults. Some people are quite gifted at this. A boss commented to his secretary about one of his men, “Harry has such a bad memory, it’s a wonder he remembers to breathe. I asked him to pick up a newspaper on his way back from lunch, but I’m not ever sure he’ll remember his way back to the office.” Just then, Harry burst in the door, brimming with enthusiasm. He exclaimed, “Guess what, boss! At lunch I ran into old man Jones who hasn’t given us an order in seven years. Before he left I talked him into a million-dollar contract!” The boss sighed and looked at his secretary, “What did I tell you? He forgot the newspaper.” Let’s see this from another perspective. A speaker held up a blank sheet of paper and asked, “What do you see?” The reply was, “A piece of paper.” He then placed the paper on the podium, made a tiny dot in the center and held it up again. “What do you see now?” “A dot,” was the unanimous reply from the audience. “Imagine this blank paper is a person,” the speaker said. “The small dot you saw is his/her biggest fault. The white surrounding the dot represents all of this person’s worthChurch Service. LIGHT OF GRACE, 400 E.

while qualities which we so easily fail to see. Often a fault seems bigger than it really is and we allow it to overshadow the many positive aspects of that person’s personality.” We all have different backgrounds and we’re all wired in a unique way. No two people are alike — not even identical twins. That’s why we need patience with one another. God created each of us with different shapes and assigning each of us a different mission in life. If anyone knows that we all have faults it’s God, and He gives some instruction to you and me on the subject. Here’s what He says: Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. (Ephesians 4:2b NLT) In Charles Schultz’s cartoon “Peanuts,” Lucy is seen saying that if she was in charge of the world, she’d change everything. Charlie Brown says, “That wouldn’t be easy. Where would you start?” Lucy looks directly at him, and without hesitation, points her finger at him and says, “I’d start with you!” I’d like to suggest that we take God’s view on this, and not Lucy’s. Sure, people have faults, but honestly, so do you. If we’re going to point out faults, let’s start with the person we see in the mirror each morning. Then, try and overlook the faults of others as easily as you overlook yours. No, it won’t be easy. After all, we’ve become pretty good at finding faults in others while overlooking our own. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Right? I’m getting started right now.

‘We Were Soldiers’ quilt to be raffled Valerie Funk of Osceola has designed, pieced and quilted a veterans-inspired quilt. The quilt was intended to evoke emotion from its viewers. It is made from a combination of military uniforms and traditional fabrics. The queen-size quilt features many colors that blend from lights, earth tones and browns. The cream colors at the top of the quilt represent the ray of hope the military gives to those they serve to protect. The browns and earth tones represent ground soldiers who have walked in their many endeavors. The camouflage is from authentic military uniforms and represents soldiers in the branches of the military. The centerpiece of the quilt features a silhouette of a soldier kneeling in the front of a field memorial of a fallen comrade. The soldier holds the dog tags of his friend, and represents the emotional scars surviving soldiers face when returning home. The quilt is made with a combination of freehand and computer-guided designs. There are approximately a-quarter of a million stitches throughout the entire quilt.

Seniors lead CD rally past Lenox, 3-2 By LARRY PETERSON

OST sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

LENOX — Up 2-1 after hammering Central Decatur 25-8 in game three, Lenox appeared to be on the verge of its first volleyball victory of the 2013 season here on Sept. 12. Central Decatur, one game in front of the Tigers in the Pride of Iowa Conference standings, rose up and captured game four, 25-15, to force a fifth set. Once again, Lenox was in a good position to finish off the victory, leading the shortened (15-point) fifth set early, 6-2. That’s when energized senior Caitlyn Saxton began to dominate some crucial points, finding holes in the Tiger defensive court as freshman Jentri Hullinger was reeling off four straight service points to give the Cardinals an 8-7 lead. Bethany Christensen served Lenox to a 12-10 lead, just three points from match victory. But there was one more Central Decatur resurgence. Two attack errors were untimely for Lenox, as the Cardinals moved in front, 14-13. Setter Jeals Elsberry served the next ball, and Hullinger powered the decisive kill shot for the 15-13 win, extinguishing Lenox’s hopes for good. The Cardinals improved to 2-6 overall and 2-3 in the Pride of Iowa. Lenox fell to 0-6 and 0-4. “We had some pretty strong heart out there from our three seniors (Saxton, Elsberry and Kate Havens),” CD coach Joni Readout said. “With one of our starters (Hallie Linhart) injured, a lot of the time we had our three seniors taking three freshmen under their wing tonight.”

OST sports editor • svicker@osceolaiowa.com

Central Decatur’s Jeals Elsberry (5) sets for teammate Kate Havens (6) during a Sept. 12, 3-2 victory at Lenox.

Readout said without Linhart, Saxton’s passing was even more crucial throughout the night. That allowed Ellsberry’s setting to be distributed for some key kills on long rallies. Havens, Hullinger and Saxton did most of the damage up front. For Dukes, whose team hadn’t won a set until a 3-1 loss to East Union on Sept. 10, it was a disappointing finish to an encouraging night. “We should have won it,” Dukes said. “We just found out our (best) rotation this week at East Union, and every time out now we’re getting a little better. We just lost ourselves for awhile in our attack tonight.”

Aurora Arevalo had 15 of Lenox’s 33 kills, and a team-high 22 digs. She also served 13-of-13 with an ace. Shantelle Brown had a big serving night, posting seven aces while going 22-25. When Lenox was rolling, such as a 15-5 lead in game one, and a 20-5 advantage in game three, the Tigers were dominant. But there wasn’t enough consistency to bury the Cardinals then they had the chance. “When we were playing well, we were communicating with each other and making plays,” Dukes said. “They were in it. Aurora Arevelo had an outstanding night tonight. We just beat ourselves for awhile, and it cost us.”

FOOTBALL: Continued from page 1S

“Players that stood out to me were Gordon Witt, who always gives us 100 percent effort and makes a lot of tackles,” head coach Michael Kline said. “Another defensive player that had a decent night was Lane Carson. Lane has not gotten a lot of time on defense and didn’t make as many plays as he could have, but as a coaching staff, we liked what we saw from him.” Clarke hits the road this week, traveling to Leon to take on 2-1 Central Decatur.

Pella Christian 31, Central Decatur 14 PELLA — Central Decatur struggled to get its running game established in a 31-14 loss to Pella Christian in the district opener here on Friday. The Cardinals fall to 2-1 for the season an 0-1 in Class 1A District 7. Wyman Reed, who had run wild in the Cardinals’ first two games of the season, was held in check to the tune of 45 yards on 16 carries. Trenton Wells, who had also run the ball effectively in the opening two weeks of the season, was held to 34 yards on four carries. Sophomore quarterback Peyton Pedersen completed 8-of-22 passes for 119 yards and one touchdown compared to two interceptions. Wells caught seven passes for 74 yards including the touchdown grab, while Noah Bishop caught one ball for 45 yards. Junior Peyton Gilbert scored the only other Cardinal touchdwon when he returned a punt 66 yards for a touchdown. Wells and Daniel Weir each recorded 13 total tackles to lead Central Decatur, while Gilbert racked up 11 tackles. Mason Howerzyl ran for 133 yards and one touchdown on 29 carries for Pella Christian, while Colten Collins add-

ed one touchdown run. The Pella Christian defense accounted for two touchdowns with an interception return for a score by Collins and a fumble recovery for a touchdown by Howerzyl. Central Decatur hosts Clarke on Friday.

Davis County 35, Interstate 35 28 TRURO — Briar Vogel threw for three touchdowns in a losing effort Friday at home against Davis County, as the Mustangs topped the Roadrunners 35-28. Vogel completed 12-of-21 passes for 133 yards and three touchdowns compared to just one interception. Zach Goering caught four passes for 39 yards and two scores, while freshman Brock Bush caught three passes for 36 yards and one touchdown. Senior Alex Middleton ran the ball 21 times for 115 yards and one touchdown. Jaylan White intercepted a pass for the Roadrunners. Spencer Bassett and Justin Utt did the majority of the damage for the Mustangs, as Bassett ran for 161 yards on 34 attempts with two touchdowns, while Utt picked up 87 rushing yards on 11 carries with three touchdowns. Interstate 35 now sits at 0-3 for the season and 0-1 in Class 2A District 6. The Roadrunners travel to Bondurant-Farrar on Friday.

Murray 52, GVPB 14 DES MOINES — Murray took control early again, holding a 30-7 halftime lead on the way to defeating Grand View Park Baptist, 52-14. Murray, 3-1 overall and 3-0 in district play, took a twoscore lead on Andrew Rider’s interception midway through the first quarter. It was his fourth straight game with an interception returned for a touchdown. It was also Rider’s sixth career interception for a touchdown, which sets an all-time

record in Iowa in that category. Eight-player does not have anyone with five career swipes, and the 11-player record is five. Rider ranks second alltime nationally, one behind the career record of seven set by Dick Maurer of Oregon in 1969. It also puts him second all-time nationally for interceptions returned for touchdowns in a season (four). The national record is five. Offensively, Rider ran for 104 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown, and added a 55yard touchdown on a pass reception. Seth Nerness rushed for 85 yards and a TD. Freshman Thane Simmons got his first start at quarterback and completed 10 of 16 passes for 138 yards and three TDs, with no interceptions. He also ran for a touchdown. Sam Rockhold had three catches for 40 yards and two TDs. Moving from quarterback, Matt Barnes contributed five catches for 43 yards. Rockhold had 17 total tackles including four for losses. George Barber had three tackles for losses among 10 stops. Barnes and Rider each had an interception. “Our defense played well again,” Mustang coach Keith Shields said. “Our rush defense allowed only 69 yards on 40 attempts, and that includes a 65-yard run. We got good pressure in their backfield with seven sacks and nine other tackles for loss.” Shields said Simmons had a strong debut in the team’s search for an improved passing attack. “Grand View Park Baptist did a great job of throwing a completely different attacking defense than we expected,” Shields said, “but our kids made some good adjustments and withstood GVPB’s most inspired effort of the season.” Murray hosts Wayne in a non-district homecoming game this week.
