Funnel Cake Days!
June 14, 2018 PAGE 7
Visit Winthrop Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16 for family fun Last year, Winthrop Days received a new name for its yearly celebration. The C&C Club felt the town celebration was missing a brand that most towns have. Because Winthrop was celebrating its 160th birthday and it was a GREAT time to add an official name. “Winthrop Funnel Cake Days” was chosen because after all the years of changes, there has always been funnel cakes, thanks Kay Norman and her family’s 30+ years of dedication. On Friday night, be sure to stop in to the Winthrop Historical Center to check out their “New Space in an Old Place” on the first floor of the old bank building downtown. The open house will be from 5-7 PM Friday night, and again from 1-5 PM on Saturday. This is the 8th year for the 5k run/walk Friday night; registration begins at 6:30 PM. Chip timing will enhance participant experience so they have instant race results. There is also a kids fun run. Register online at www.getmeregistered. com/WinthropRun or Friday night at 6:30 at the park pavilion.
Also on Friday night, stop by the Winthrop Library at 7:30 for a Taiko Japanese Drum Interactive Experience! And end the evening with a delightful family movie in the park. On Saturday, stop by the Historical Center to check things out and go on a tour. Enjoy the big parade at 5 PM and be sure to get the kids registered for the youth pedal pull at 5:30 PM. After the parade, head to the park for a wide variety of great family fun events. -Inflatables for Kids -Local Petting Zoo -Popular Barrel Train for the kiddos -Face Painting -Funnel Cakes (always delicious!) -Food trucks -Buchanan Co. Dairy Producers -Free local beer tasting AND, new this year ... the Winthrop Fire Department’s Foam Slip and Slide! The kids are gonna love that! To round out the night in the park, there will be the always popular Fabulous Fireworks!
Celebrating 55 Years of Service . Always striving to serve you better ... New Wireless Internet Technology and now installing high speed fiber drops in rural Stanley. Test customers receiving 45 - 50 MEG EACH!

Tour the Historical Center!
During Funnel Cake Days, be sure to stop by the Winthrop Historical Center to explore the new space recently purchased for the center and rediscover Winthrop’s past in the upstairs display area. The former People’s State Bank building, an instantly recognizable landmark on Madison Street recalling Winthrop’s past, was the home of a variety of businesses, from bank to barbershop, from restaurant to Masonic Lodge. As people toured there were recollections of the building’s past and ideas shared for its future. Volunteers are invited to share their time and expertise by serving on committees to help with Phase 3 of the restoration project. Visit “New Spaces in an Old Place” during Winthrop Funnel Cake Days 5-7 PM Friday, June 15 and 1-5 PM Saturday, June 16.

Winthrop Multi-Sport Courts to premiere during Funnel Cake Days! With weather permitting and newly painted lines dried, the new Winthrop Multi-Sport Courts will be open for viewing and playing tennis, pickleball, and basketball during Winthrop Funnel Cake Days this weekend! Many people are not familiar with pickleball, so a short demonstration will be provided following the Winthrop Days parade. (To learn more about the sport, go to website USAPA.org). Watch upcoming editions of THE NEWS for sign-up information regarding free pickleball lessons that are being planned. Pickleball is fun for everyone â€Ś you are never too old to take up the sport. A special thank you to all the generous donors for making the Multi-Sport Court possible. It is another sign of commitment to this great community. All donors will soon be receiving personal invitations to a donor recognition party in the park to include treats and demonstrations. Pictured: Workers are busy finishing the new multi-sport courts in Winthrop. Below left: Lauren Donlea makes the first basket!

Bi-partisan opioid legislation becomes law ment of patients without fear of contributing to a patientâ€™s abuse of or dependence on addictive drugs or diversion to illegal drugs. The bill, House File 2377, also mandates that prescribing practitioners and first responders utilize the PMP. Practitioners are to use the PMP when they prescribe controlled substances and first responders when they administer opioid antagonists, like naloxone, to patients. It also directs the Board of Pharmacy to issue a report to each prescribing practitioner that includes a sum
mary of the practitionerâ€™s history of prescribing controlled substances; a comparison to other practitionerâ€™s prescribing activities, and educational updates. Finally, the bill includes language that provides certain protections to those
who seek treatment for a ! ! drug-related overdose or a ! person who seeks treatment for another person who is " experiencing a drug-related overdose.
In an effort to combat the national opioid crisis hitting Iowa, a bill relating to opioid abuse was signed into law this month. With opioid related overdose deaths reaching all time high this year, the bill expands the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), which allows authorized prescribers and pharmacists to view information about their patientsâ€™ use of controlled substances. This is a tool used in determining appropriate prescribing and treat-

New flag pole is telecommunications tower in disguise
A new 80-foot-tall flag pole was recently installed next to the Sheehan-Tidball American Legion Post 30 building in Independence. The pole, which replaces a 78-foot pole installed in 2015, will serve as a telecommunications tower. The project, which took five weeks, will culminate with a flag-raising ceremony on Saturday, June 23 (time to be announced). (Donna Jensen Photo)

The warm weather is here which means loads of fun activity in the hot sun. It is a great time of year to enjoy the outdoors. However, when the weather gets hotter and you become more active, your body loses more water. Be sure to stay hydrated and consume additional water each day to compensate for this loss. How do I increase my daily water intake? Try one or all of these simple tips to improve your hydration levels: •Start your day by drinking a glass of cold water. •Have a glass of water with every meal. •When eating out, make it routine to always order water versus another beverage. •Keep a water bottle in your car and at your desk so you have it readily available throughout the day. Do I have to drink WATER to meet my daily hydration needs? No. However, drinking water is a low-cost, caloriefree way of increasing your hydration levels so it is the ultimate option. You can also increase your water intake from the food that you eat and other drinks you consume. Fruit and vegetables are a particularly good source of water. Stay away from alcoholic and caffeinated beverages such as beer, coffee and soda. Stay hydrated! Do not rely on thirst as your body’s signal that it needs fluid. By the time you are thirsty, you are already mildly dehydrated! It is important to stay hydrated throughout your day, especially during these hot spring and summer months.

State’s largest river cleanup adventure set for July
It’s not every day that hundreds of strangers from across the country converge on one stretch of river with a simple, yet shared goal of picking up garbage. That, however, is exactly what will happen every day from July 8-13, when over 350 volunteers will spend their vacations cleaning up, learning about, and exploring 63 Maquoketa River miles between Manchester and Canton in Delaware, Jones, and Jackson counties. “Iowa Project AWARE is an event that demonstrates the public’s drive to maintain and improve Iowa’s river systems. Jones County is honored to have this organization mobilize its tremendous volunteer following to further enhance the health of the Maquoketa River,” says Brad Mormann, Jones County Conservation Director Iowa Project AWARE, which stands for A Watershed Awareness River Expedition, is the state’s largest volunteer river cleanup event. In addition to muscling trash out of the river, participants learn about watersheds, geology, archaeology, recycling and other natural resource topics. This year’s expedition not only provides an opportunity for Maquoketa River residents to showcase their communities, but it also offers an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to connect with the river and enrich their sense of place. “The City of Manchester is very excited and honored to have Iowa Project AWARE in our community and on our river. With the addition of the Whitewater Park, the focus on the river and water quality has become increasingly important as we continue to promote water recreation. The Maquoketa River is the biggest natural resource in our community and having Iowa Project AWARE in our community is a great way for us to partner with an outstanding group of volunteers and focus on making Iowa a better place to live, work and play,” explained Doug Foley, Director of Parks & Recreation for the city of Manchester. Volunteers can officially join the river cleanup by paddling the river or by assisting with land-based recycling initiatives, but there are opportunities for others to experience Project AWARE as well. “Infotainment” programs, for example, are

I wanted to take a moment to commend one of our counties greatest assets, Larson Construction. We recently closed out the â€œBuilding for youâ€? project at BCHC. This project was a 27-month endeavor that required a huge amount of work. While it was â€œBuilt for you,â€? in many ways, it was also built by you with our local company, Larson Construction, having performed the work. The project came in on time and ultimately under budget, and the leadership at BCHC could not be happier with the result. Special kudos to Josh Schwartz who led the project as the construction superintendent and did a terriďŹ c job not only in the outcome, but how he carried himself in our organization. We have a lot of momentum in Buchanan County, and Larson Construction has played a major role in these new developments time and time again.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig commented on the Iowa Crop Progress and Condition report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through November. “For the most part the crop is in the ground and in good condition, with 81 percent of corn and 78 percent of soybeans rated good to excellent. However, it is important to recognize that some farmers have faced significant weather challenges as well, with dry conditions a concern in southern Iowa and severe flooding in northern Iowa,” Naig said. While hot and dry conditions allowed many farmers to get caught up on fieldwork, others could do nothing but watch it rain during the week ending June 10, 2018, according to the USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service. Statewide there were 5.1 days suitable for fieldwork. Activities for the week included hay harvest, wrapping up planting for the year and post-emergent weed and fertilizer applications. Topsoil moisture levels rated 4 percent very short, 15 percent short, 71 percent adequate and 10 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture levels rated 5 percent very short, 17 percent short, 69 percent adequate and 9 percent surplus. Drought concerns continue in south central and southeast Iowa as subsoil moisture ratings of very short to short reached 70 percent or more. Ninety-seven percent of the corn crop has emerged with 81 percent rated in good to excellent condition. Soybean growers have 98 percent of the expected crop planted, 2 weeks ahead of the 5-year average. Eighty-nine percent of soybeans have emerged, 5 days ahead of last year. Seventy-eight percent of the soybean crop was rated in good to excellent condition. Nearly all of the oat crop has emerged, with 38 percent headed. Eighty-one percent of the oat crop was rated in good to excellent condition. Hay condition was rated 69 percent good to excellent. Pasture conditions rated 60 percent good to excellent. High temperatures have strained pastures in areas lacking rainfall. Cattle continued to experience heat stress.

Winthrop Historical Center organizer Ann Slattery stands at the door to welcome visitors. Many toured the Winthrop Historical Center during its Open House on Saturday, exploring the new space recently purchased for the center and rediscovering Winthropâ€™s past in the upstairs display area. The former Peopleâ€™s State Bank building, an instantly recognizable landmark on Madison Street recalling Winthropâ€™s past, was the home of a variety of businesses, from bank to barbershop, from restaurant
to Masonic Lodge. As people toured there were recollections of the buildingâ€™s past and ideas shared for its future. Volunteers are invited to share their time and expertise by serving on committees to help with Phase 3 of the restoration project. Help is also needed to prepare the building for Winthrop Funnel Cake Days; bring brooms and shop-vacs 8:30-11:30 AM Friday and
Saturday, June 8-9 (other supplies will be provided). There will be another opportunity to visit Âł1HZ6SDFHVLQDQ2OG3ODFHÂ´GXULQJ:LQthrop Funnel Cake Days. The Historical Center will host an open house and special tours 5-7 PM Friday, June 15 and 1-5 PM Saturday, June 16. (Christine Dale Photos)
