CAL looks to
reduce reserve
spending
Hands-on health care
BY NICK PEDLEY
A recent audit revealed the CAL
Community School District spent
more than it took in last year, but the
findings didn’t come as a surprise to
district officials.
An audit report released last week
showed operating expenses at CAL
totaled $4,656,772 in 2013-14. The
figure was $224,327 more than overall revenue, which forced the district
to pull from reserve funds to cover
increased costs that year.
School officials attributed the
reserve fund spending to declining
revenue due to shrinking enrollment. The findings were part of an
annual financial audit required by
state law.
“I don’t want to say the sky is
falling, but we have to watch things.
You always have to,” said Superintendent Dwight Widen. “The school
board knows they need to change
the course of spending a little bit if
they can.”
Widen said reserve fund spending was a relatively common practice among school districts during
lean years. CAL’s unspent balance
currently hovers around $1.3 million, which is comparable to other
north Iowa school districts. However, the cushion hasn’t stopped
district officials from investigating
cost saving methods to curb future
reserve spending.

From CPR certification to moving immobilized patients, a group of
Hampton-Dumont High School students have learned a lion’s share about
emergency medical care this semester.
A three-way partnership between the high school, NIACC and Franklin General Hospital (FGH) led to the creation of a new emergency medical
technician (EMT) course this spring. Erran Miller, FGH emergency medical
services director, has led 14 students through the ins and outs of the EMT
field during special training exercises and classroom workshops.
“It’s been a very good semester. They’re really good kids to work with,”
he said. “It’s been a lot of fun watching them learn.”
Students have spent the past four months learning how to read vitals,
measure blood pressure and deal with patients in extreme distress. Once the
course is complete, they will take a series of tests in hopes of becoming certified EMTs.

Bird flu has arrived in north central Iowa.
The Iowa Department of Agriculture announced Monday that a
Wright County commercial laying
operation with an estimated 2.8 million birds had experienced increased
mortality. According to the release,
initial testing came back positive for
H5 avian influenza.
The highly pathogenic avian influenza was first diagnosed in Buena Vista County on April 13. One
week later, a second case was confirmed in Osceola County, resulting
in the loss of 5.3 million hens. By
May 1, the number of probable cases had reached 19, resulting in Gov.
Terry Branstad declaring a state of
emergency in Iowa.
On Monday, four additional cases
of avian influenza were announced:
the seventh and eighth case in Buena Vista County, a second case in
Cherokee County and the first case
in Wright County.

The weather may be rainy this week, but last week’s
clear skies and mild temperatures were a boon for area
farmers eager to plant this year’s crops. All across the
area farmers stayed busy working to finish up their corn
planting.
“From what I can see, there’s a lot of corn going in the
ground this week,” said Steve Abbas, executive director
of the Franklin County Farm Service Agency on Friday
as he was planting in his own field.
Across both Cerro Gordo and Franklin counties, agriculture specialists were very satisfied with how productive this year’s planting season has been.
“We had a really good week,” said Charles Schafer,
general manager of North Iowa Cooperative in Thornton. “People are very happy with the way the soil is
working up.”
“For the most part, everybody was in the field on
Tuesday [April 28],” said Tanner Bohman, Crop Specialist for AgVantage FS. “A lot of corn has been put in the
ground this week.”
From Dougherty to Coulter it was estimated that
farmers were between 80 percent and 90 percent done
with their corn planting by the end of last week, with
hopes of finishing up before the weekend rains came in.

Sukup Manufacturing of Sheffield will acquire DanCorn, a Denmark-based world leader in grain drying,
storage and handling.
(Hwy 122 in front of Cinema West)
Sukup Manufacturing Company
of Sheffield expanded recently with
the acquisition of DanCorn, a Denmark-based dealer of grain drying,
storage and handling equipment.
DanCorn is the exclusive distributor of Sukup products in northern
Europe and is located in Hedensted,
Denmark. According to a news release, the company has experienced
increased success with the introduction of Sukup (American) style grain
drying and storage systems in its region, where the style is now considered the norm.
DanCorn hopes to expand its cus-

and plans to refocus on increasing
market growth throughout northern
Europe.
“As Sukup Manufacturing Company has been able to expand and
grow, our dealers have also grown
bigger and shared in our success,”
said Steve Sukup, CFO of Sukup
Manufacturing. “DanCorn is an example of the benefit of a mutually
strong and lasting partnership.”
Sukup Manufacturing has grown
more than eight times since 2002.
With DanCorn being one of the company’s largest international custom-
ers, management believed the acquisition would add a strategic platform
for future expansion.
“We are looking forward to continued growth with DanCorn and the
expanding opportunities in protecting grain and increasing profit for
farmers,” said Steve Sukup, president of Sukup Manufacturing.
Sukup products are sold throughout North America and in more than
80 foreign countries. In addition to a
variety of grain equipment, the company manufactures steel buildings,
bucket elevators, drag conveyors and
chain loop conveyors.

CBC’s agenda is the city’s ash tree
population. With the impending arrival of the destructive Emerald Ash

Coulter has roughly 150 ash trees

“One of the perks of a small town
is strong relationships, and we have a
lot of new relationships blossoming,”
said CBC president Pamela Warwick. “We’re seeing a resurgence of
community involvement and the belief that everybody has something to
contribute is starting to spread.”
The group has focused most of its
attention on three projects: improving amenities at the city park, promoting the Rolling Prairie Trail and
developing a strategy for the city’s
ash trees.
The park and athletic field have
been a top priority in early planning discussions. The athletic field
is used by both Little Leaguers and
soccer players, and the CBC would
like to see new lights installed to increase night use. The group expects
it to be a one or two-year project.
The Rolling Prairie Trial has also
garnered considerable discussion.
The CBC is investigating ways to
promote the trailhead and draw
riders into Coulter to check it out.
Eventually, the Franklin County
Freedom Rock will be located near
the shelterhouse, which will create
additional buzz.

PLANTING
“Not many guys can say they’ve
gotten all their corn done in April,”
said Bohman.
This year’s planting season has
been a refreshing change from recent years where springtime cold
snaps and heavy rains delayed the
farmers and shortened the growing season.
“The last couple years we had
to pick and choose where to go and
where all the wet spots were at,” said
Bohman. “This week has just been
excellent. The ground has just been
really nice. We couldn’t ask for any
better weather than what we’ve had
this week. I’ve been very pleased
and I think everybody else has, too.”
With thunderstorms coming in
on Sunday, last week’s window for
planting didn’t last very long. Fortunately, today’s planting machines
can get through the average farmer’s
field in a matter of days.
“If the weather holds out, it’ll
be over with by the middle of next
week,” said Rick Demory, sales
manager for Five Star Coop in
Dougherty. “These guys can plant
their crops in five days.”
Even before the planting was underway, farmers were able to get in
the fields and make their preparations. Fertilizer and liquid nitrogen
wanted out of life,” said Joyce. “His
main passion was Hampton and the
farm. He always wanted to protect
his little corner of the world.”
A memorial service for Blum will
be held at the First Congregational
Church in Hampton on Saturday,
May 16, at 10:30 a.m.
Miller wasn’t sure if any of the

introduction to basic patient care.
Many of them plan to study some
area of the medical field next fall

“Even if you’re not going to be

“We’ve been able to spray every

With the corn all but finished,
some farmers have already gotten a good start on their beans as
well. Soybeans can be planted until
the 10 th of June, but local experts
didn’t expected the deadline would
be of concern.
“We’ve just been very pleased with
everything,” said Bohman. “We’re
looking forward to getting beans in
the ground and getting done.”
With most of the corn finished and
beans well on their way, farmers are
hoping for a nice hot summer with a
touch of rain for their crops to grow.
“Rain probably wouldn’t hurt,”
said Abbas. “We don’t need a fiveinch rain, but half an inch would be
nice. Ideally, you’d have between 70
and 80 degree temperatures and an
inch or so of rain every week.”
W hile any thing can happen
between now and harvest, the early planting is a good sign for this
year’s crop.
“There’s the potential for a better
crop,” said Abbas. “Conditions seem
to be pretty good right now for early
growth.”
POLICY
“We will be revisiting our current policies to clarify and strengthen the definitions of curricular and
noncurricular clubs,” Lettow wrote
in a letter to parents on Friday. “We
recognize some of the language and
information could be improved. The
changes will allow us to apply the
policies to all clubs consistently.”
H-D senior Isabell Akers tried to
start a Students for Life club multiple times in 2013 and 2014. She
claims Madson denied her application for official club status because
the group was “too controversial,”
and because he didn’t want the
school picking sides on the abortion debate. However, Madson and
other district administrators assert
the principal was following policy
endorsed by the Iowa Association of
School Boards (IASB).
Akers’ group has been operating
as a “noncurriculum-related organization” since January 2014. The
designation gives members access to
meeting space and district facilities,
but not other privileges enjoyed by
official school clubs, known as curricular clubs.
Attor neys representing St udents for Life sent a demand letter
to Madson on April 16 urging the
principal to reverse his decision and
make the group official. It demanded a response by April 30, which the

Blum acquired more property
over time and grew his farmland
holdings to 400 acres throughout
Franklin County. He enlisted the
expertise of local farmer Doug Alert
and his wife Margaret Smith to oversee groundwork and upkeep at his
properties, and by the early 1990s
each one was certified organic.
Alert and Smith have continued
farming the land and plant a variety
of produce like barley, rye and corn
each year.
“Back when we started it in the
Nineties, they were screaming for
organic stuff in countries that wanted it,” said Joyce. “It’s typically a
smaller crop compared to modern
yields, but it brings a higher price.”
The special organic designation
brought with it a list of strict requirements. Each field needed a 30-foot
buffer zone between it and all neighboring properties, which led Blum
to plant trees and other vegetation to
help filter pollutants from the soil.
Last Saturday’s plantings were
part of a multi-year project that
saw thousands of trees and shrubs
planted on Blum’s land. However,
he never got to see his vision come
full circle. Blum died in April due to
complications with a broken hip at
age 97, but his children saw to it that
the planting project was completed.
“The farm and those trees kept
him alive. He talked about it almost
every day until the end,” said Joyce.
“He was very interested in where everything was going and other things
they could do this year.”
Blum’s family was greeted with
clear skies and great weather on
Saturday. They started early in the
morning and stayed busy digging,
planting and watering throughout the
day. It was like other projects from
year’s past, but with one exception.
“Dad would have loved being out
here watching us and supervising everything. He was looking forward to
this so much,” said Ginny Tunnicliff,
Blum’s daughter. “He was a lawyer by
trade, but he really enjoyed the farm.

remained confident the IASB’s policy was comprehensive and sound.
However, he felt the district needed to clarify how curricular and
non-curricular clubs are classified.
“I just think we have to look at
the process that goes into it,” he explained in an interview. “Is there a
chance some existing clubs could be
reclassified? I would say yes.”
We will be revisiting
our current policies to
clarify and strengthen
the deÀnitions.
- Todd Lettow, Superintendent
Any policy changes or club reclassifications would occur before
the start of the 2015-16 school year.
Lettow expected the school board to
review the situation soon and make a
decision after a thorough discussion.
“It’s important to be thoughtful
and go through the process to do it
right,” he said.
Students for Life declined to
comment on the H-D’s response until a later date.

“We will continue with our proactive approach on the preventative
side with all of the producers, but the
USDA and IDALS will be the lead

Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Lester in the release.
The county is taking proactive
measures to help prevent the spread
of the disease. The secondary roads
department has placed barricades
near several of the area poultry facilities in an attempt to limit traffic.
“It is important that residents
obey the traffic control devices that
are in place and we ask for their cooperation in limiting any unnecessary travel in or around these facilities,” said Wright County Sheriff
Jason Schluttenhofer.
The Wright County Board of Supervisors declared a state of emergency on April 30 in an effort to
take preventative action against the
spread of the virus.
“With the current widespread outbreak of the HPAI in northwest Iowa,
and the potential severe economic
impact such an outbreak could cause,
we felt it necessary, as a Board, to

Helgevold in a release.
With 15 million birds at more
than 20 locations across the county, Wright County’s poultry industry employs more than 600 people.
The potential economic damage the
county faces forced county officials
to act.
On Friday, May 1, the Wright
County Board of Supervisors passed
a resolution authorizing road closures
on the secondary roads around the
county’s poultry facilities. The resolution states that “the movement or
transport of any poultry or poultry
waste products is hereby prohibited
within 0.5 miles of any poultry facility,” naturally excluding a poultry
facility moving at their own location.
At the time, the declaration was
just a matter of precaution, as there
were no reports of the bird flu in the
county. As of Monday, the policies
remain in effect to combat the potential spread.
County officials stress the importance of protecting backyard
flock owners from wild water fowl
and other types of poultry and to report any sick birds or unusual deaths
to their local veterinarian. Sharing farm equipment between sites
should be avoided and visitors to
farms should be restricted.

Happy Mother’s Day
This weekend ushers in another installment of Mother’s
Day – a day in which we pay tribute to those special ladies
that put up with our guff and keep us in line no matter the
circumstance or situation.
Our mothers deserve more recognition than one measly
day. They brought us into this world after all, and that’s certainly no small feat. Over the years they put in thankless
hours raising us, feeding us and worrying about us. Their
guidance and support shaped us into the people we are today, and we owe them our most sincerest of thanks for their
unwavering faith and unconditional love.
Take the time to celebrate Mother’s Day with your mom
this weekend. She’s definitely worth it, and she deserves some
credit for all her hard work and dedication over the years.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Bird flu lands crippling
blow to ag industry
Iowa was dealt a bad hand recently following the discovery of the bird flu virus in commercial poultry facilities
across the state. Each day brings with it more bad news, and
the situation has reached near epidemic levels. It’s been a
devastating two weeks for our state’s agriculture sector and
any substantial relief seems a long ways out.
On Monday state officials announced a commercial laying operation in Wright County was infected with the virus.
That’s a little too close for comfort, and the bird flu is bound
to jump across the Franklin County border sooner than later
due to its aggressive nature. Though the poultry industry
has taken extreme measures to ensure bio-security at these
facilities, the virus has continued ravaging both turkeys and
chickens in multiple states throughout the Midwest. It appears the bird flu is going to run its course at an alarming
rate despite strengthened precautions.
It’s extremely unfortunate the bird Áu
made its way to our area and we can only
hope it’s a short-term inconvenience.
This situation promises to affect the local ag economy in
one way or another. Grain prices might slip, workers could
lose jobs and the price of poultry products could escalate.
The severity of the situation was pushed to the forefront last
week when the governor declared a state of emergency. The
proclamation activates resources and authorizes the use of
special supplies, equipment and personnel to deal with the
situation head on. We might not know how to stop the bird
flu, but at least we’re trying.
There’s not much opinion to levy on the situation. Around
20 million birds have been euthanized, and that number
only promises to grow. It’s extremely unfortunate the bird
flu made its way to our area and we can only hope it’s a
short-term inconvenience. However, it’s bound to create repercussions on the poultry industry, the local workforce and
grain producers. When a large sector of our economy gets
hit with a devastating epidemic like this, it’s going to have a
far-reaching effect on multiple areas of commerce.
The only positive takeaway from the situation is that humans can’t contract this strain of bird flu. It poses no threat
to poultry meat or egg products, which is good. The last
thing we need is a public health crisis on top of an already
severe situation.
For now, we’ll have to wait and see if the bird flu spreads
to Franklin County and elsewhere. Iowa is the largest egg
producing state in the country, and this outbreak will affect
both consumers and producers across the United States. It
seems it’s going to take a while to ride this one out.
When you think of measuring
worth, how do you measure yours?
Is it the vehicle you drive, the house
you live in or the money in your wallet?
We lost a wonderful woman in
our community on April 22 – Jennifer Healey. Jennifer was a simple
person who did not have a fancy
house, expensive vehicle or a ton of
money. So what was her worth?
Jennifer was a wife and mother of
two. She was constantly busy raising
her family and working a full-time
job, but she found time to put a lot of
energy into her community by volunteering. She believed in shopping
local, helping out the small business
owners and serving on committees
to help bring agriculture awareness
to Franklin County.
She was a former member of the
Greater Franklin County Chamber of
Commerce Board of Directors, served
on the Chamber Annual Dinner Committee and the Chamber Town &
Country Expo Committee. She did all
of this while battling cancer.
The chamber honored her in 2013
as the Chamber Ambassador of the
Year and Main Street Volunteer of
the Year. She knew her life was go-
ing to be shorter than her peers, but
this is how she spent her time. It
was worth it to her. Jennifer was an
amazing volunteer that gave without
asking for anything in return.
Jennifer was laid to rest on April
27. The many people who took time
to come to the visitation and funeral showed us her worth. She had
touched so many lives in all corners
of life. She was loved by many. Her
smile, laugh and caring personality
will be missed.
We saw her worth in all the people that she touched through the
tears that they shed for her. That is
her worth.
When you think of measuring your
worth, how will you measure it today?
R.I.P Jennifer Healey, 8/25/19734/22/2015.
A new way to pay
Well that didn’t last long.
Last week I wrote about Valve’s
spectacular failure to convince PC
gamers to pay for mod content. Between me writing the column and it
seeing print, Valve decided they had
enough, refunded everybody’s money, and shutdown the program.
It’s not that there shouldn’t be an
avenue for modders to get paid for
their work, but clearly this was the
wrong one.
Fortunately, the Internet has
come up with several other avenues,
which are rapidly becoming a larger
part of the overall economy.
In the case of modding, the virtual “tip jar” seems to be the preferred
option. Rather than pay up front for a
game mod that may or may not work,
you can have the mod for free and
make a donation directly to the modder’s PayPal account.
I’ve done this myself. Open
Broadcaster Software is a free program that I use in my video editing
hobby. It really is a great program,
and the developers working for free
offer better tech support than any
professional company I’ve ever seen.
My donation won’t buy them more
than a nice burrito, but hey, how
many people get a free lunch with
their hobby?
But that’s the kicker, isn’t it.
Turning hobbies into full time jobs.
I can’t imagine the developers of
Open Broadcast Software make
enough in donations to live on, but in
other cases that could be the case.
It seems that in the wake of the
economic recession and the loss of
low-skilled jobs, people are becoming more and more inclined to look
for ways to monetize their hobbies.
It’s the American Dream of the 21st
Century.
To that end, the “pay what you
want” model is gaining prominence,
particularly online where the whole
world can be your audience. It seems
contrary to the usual economic procedure of “I make this, set a price,
and sell it,” but it’s working. If you
sell something for $10 to 10 people,
AGE OF
THE GEEK
Travis
Fischer
you make $100. If you give it away to
100 people and 10 of them decide to
give you $10, 20 decide to give you
$1, and the rest just take it for free,
you’re still ahead.
That doesn’t seem like a realistic situation. After all, why would
anybody pay for something when
they don’t have to? And yet, reality
has proven time and time again that
they will.
Just look at all the “free” games
out there that generate millions of
dollars in revenue. Many people
play them without spending a single
dime. Others may throw in a dollar
or two before they get bored. Most
of the revenue, however, comes from
the “whales.” High spenders with
money to burn on extra turns in
“Candy Crush.”
Maybe it has something to do
with the ever increasing income gap.
Of course, even beyond “pay what
you want” is the Patreon method.
Patreon is a relatively new website looking to be the next step beyond Kickstarter when it comes to
the crowdfunding market. By signing up to Patreon, you can set up a
system where people will just give
you money for being you.
Lewis Lovhaug makes internet
videos where he reads and critiques
comic books. These videos are completely free. He produces them and
posts them for the whole world to
see. On top of whatever ad revenue
he makes from his videos, he has
a Patreon account that generates
$2,641 a month. There are 488 people willing to give him money every month just so he can keep doing
what he does.
And he’s far from alone. Many
online creators are using Patreon to
supplement their incomes or at least
make sure they break even on their
hobbies.
Personally, I donate $1 a month
to five Patreons of people or groups
whose work I like enough to buy them
a good burrito once a year. Yes, I operate on a burrito-based economy.
I am also apparently a cheapskate
because the average donor on these
accounts gives between $5 and $7.50
per month. I may be buying them
one burrito a year, but other people
out there are clearly making up the
difference.
Of course, all of this operates in
something of a legal gray area. Team
Four Star, for instance, is a group of
creators famous for their parody series, “DragonBall Z Abridged.”
“Dragonball Z Abridged” is, as is
said before every video, “a non-profit fan-based parody,” and that is true
to an extent. They do not sell their
videos, nor do they collect ad revenue on them. Doing so would quickly earn them the wrath of both Toei
Animation, who owns the Dragonball franchise, and Funimation, who
holds the license to distribute Dragonball in North America.
But while Team Four Star cannot
sell or collect ad revenue for “Dragonball Z Abridged,” they can collect
the $6,189 per month that fans donate to their Patreon account.
Just because you can’t sell something no longer means you can’t
make money off of it. (And kudos
to the guys at Patreon, who collect
a dime for every dollar that passes
through their website, for figuring
out how to make a living by facilitating online panhandling).
First the Internet changed how we
pay our bills. Now, for some at least,
it’s changing how they generate the
money to pay bills, too.
Travis Fischer is a news writer
for Mid-America Publishing and
may try setting up a Patreon of his
own, if only to supplement his burrito budget.
Keeping higher education affordable
Keeping higher education affordable allows more Iowans to get the
education and skills they need to
find good jobs. It creates a positive
cycle that helps our state attract even
more businesses and jobs – the types
that will strengthen Iowa’s middle
class and grow our economy.
Iowa’s community colleges train
a skilled workforce at a time when
nearly 34 percent of job openings
in Iowa require an education level equal to an associate’s degree or
higher. Despite the growing importance of community colleges to both
Iowa students and the Iowa economy, state funding has not kept up.
Even when accounting for inflation,
tuition has increased dramatically in
recent years.
According to the Iowa Department of Education’s annual report
on our community colleges, over
THE
RAGAN
REPORT
Amanda
Ragan
the past decade average tuition rose
from $97 per credit to more than
$145 per credit. That’s an increase
of about 4.6 percent per year. Add in
fees, and the total cost is even higher. A full-time student enrolled at
one of Iowa’s 15 community colleges
could expect to pay between $4,110
and $5,370 in an academic year.
Tuition and fees currently account for 56 percent of total community college revenues, compared
to 46 percent in 2004. State support
for community colleges hit a low in
2010 during the recession.
This year’s Senate Education
Budget includes an $8 million increase in general aid to our community colleges. We’re also providing
more than $40 million in ongoing
worker training funding. These dollars will help keep tuition rates down
and provide financial aid so that all
Iowans are able to learn, train and
grow at our community colleges.
The Senate Education Budget
also invests enough in Iowa State,
the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa to freeze
tuition for a record third-straight
year. With the state budget in good
condition, a strong investment in
education and job training will keep
our economy growing and expand
Iowa’s middle class.
We recently lost another good
friend. Violet could sing and play
the piano in such an uninhibited
way she belonged in a honky-tonk,
but she never touched a drop. When
she moved to the nursing home she
gave Dawn all her music and me a
wooden handled scraper made out of
a flattened garden hoe. We treasure
and use our gifts almost every day.
Thursday was a beautiful day,
with the violets blooming all over
where the ground needed cover and
color. They seemed to be taking Violet’s place as we attended her funeral. Like many of our old friends who
have left us in body, she will live on
in how we view and treat the world
around us.
Her memory will always
inspire me to get up and
do something as well.
But I’ll still take time
to be a movie fan, for
diversity’s sake.
I could have been spraying that
day and the tiresome evangelizing at
Violet’s funeral made me nervous as
her memory was treated like an afterthought. But the music and memories
and camaraderie of family and friends
lifted our spirits as we were grateful
for the end of Violet’s suffering.
With time very short and funerals
on my mind, I’ll revisit some funeral movies I reviewed in the past and
one we watched more recently, with
“Bernie” being the more recent.
These movies seem odd as entertainment but are uplifting in the way they
treat a bad situation as a positive.
“Bernie” (2012) stars Jack Black
as a funeral director in the south. He
is so compassionate in his treatment
of those left behind that it makes
me realize the invaluable role these
people play in helping us move on,
after what feels like unbearable loss.
The movie is done in a semi-documentary style. Jack Black is a genius
and Shirley McClain helps along the
way. I sat at the end and let Jack’s
rendition of “Love Lifted Me” play
over and over. Jack and the band
nailed this song. If it ever gets too
hot outside, sit in the air and go along
for the ride.
Another death movie to see is
“The Loved One” (1965). “Something to offend everyone,” is the
claim in the trailer. I think this is one
of the greatest movies of all time.
Starring Jonathan Winters, Rod
Steiger and Liberace, among other
recognizable stars, these people had
fun making this movie. It’s about the
funeral business, as is the next movie I’ll recommend. It is not rated but
the date indicates it’s harmless, just
offensive.
“Departures” (2008) is Japanese
with subtitles. Don’t be afraid, these
people talk slowly and it should be
a good place to start reading subtitles. If you venture forth, you enter
a whole new world of great movies.
This is one of them, winning the best
foreign film Oscar. The director is
skilled at manipulating the viewer’s
emotions and making his story yours.
This movie, on the surface, is
about the culture of dealing with
the deceased in Japan. But it is really about the world of the living and
doing what you love to do. It was
late, we were tired, yet we couldn’t
shut this one off. By the way, it was
recently discovered that hundreds of
thousands of people in Japan have
been dead for years; a result of an unmanageable Social Security bureaucracy. With grandma buried in the
backyard the checks keep coming.
Violet was no movie fan. She
came from a generation where people did things, rather than sit and
watch. She didn’t have a television.
Her memory will always inspire me
to get up and do something as well.
But I’ll still take time to be a movie
fan, for diversity’s sake.
I’ d like to hear from readers.

Upmeyer page thankful for legislative opportunity
Each legislative session we are
joined by high school juniors and seniors from across the state to serve
as pages in either the Iowa House,
Iowa Senate or the Legislative Services Agency. As the House Majority Leader, I am privileged to have a
page based in my office each year. I
selected Nicholas Lindberg to work
in my office in 2015 and have asked
him to provide some insight about
his time at the Capitol.
Hello, my name is Nicholas
Lindberg and I have been given the
honor of serving House Majority
Leader Upmeyer as her page this
legislative session. I am a senior at
the Adair-Casey High School, and I
live in the small western Iowa town
of Casey. After graduation, I plan on
pursuing a degree in either business
administration or political science.
My family has a long tradition of
being farmers or soldiers, and with
my interest in politics, my uncles often claim my father took the wrong
baby home from the hospital. As
I graduated from one grade to the
next, I became increasingly interested in helping others. It wasn’t until
my dad contacted our representative,
though, that my interest took a new
level of dedication.
Rep. Baudler invited us to the
Statehouse to learn more about our
state government. After meeting
with him and being introduced on

the House floor, he pulled me aside
to talk about the Legislative Page
Program. With his encouragement,
I was determined to do all I could to
get accepted.
After sending in the online application for m, three letters of
recommendation and a detailed
résumé, I was asked to attend an
interview. A few weeks later I received an email not only confirming my acceptance but also inviting
me to attend a meeting with the
other selectees. From there, we interviewed to work in the offices of
the Speaker of the House, Majority
Leader, Minority Leader and Chief
Clerk. Days later, I received a call
from the Chief Clerk asking if I’d
accept a position as the Majority
Leader’s Page. Needless to say, I
eagerly accepted.
Rep. Upmeyer is great to work
for. One of the most important jobs
I have is helping her keep in touch
with her constituents. Often, this
means helping her send congratula-
tory letters and recognitions for their
hard work. I also answer phone calls
from Iowans wishing to share their
ideas, concerns, questions or support
with the Majority Leader.
Additionally, I work closely with
the Speaker’s page, Aaron. We are
both tasked with learning how to
operate the soundboard used during
session, setting up the conference
room for press conferences and taking photos for representatives and
their constituents.
This experience has truly been
one of a kind and I highly recommend this program for any high
school student interested in government. Not only does it provide you
with a sense of belonging, respect
and dedication, it gives you a firsthand look at how our state government operates. I’d like to thank Rep.
Upmeyer for giving me this golden
opportunity.
The page program provides a
unique opportunity for young Iowans to learn about the state legislative process. If you know a current
high school sophomore or junior
that would enjoy this immersive experience, please contact me for additional information.
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or feedback, please
don’t hesitate to contact me at linda.

Entrepreneurial
competition launches at NIACC
John Pappajohn, Iowa’s premier
venture capitalist, has announced
the launch of the 2015 Pappajohn
Iowa Entrepreneurial Venture
Competition.
This is the 10th annual competition sponsored by Mr. Pappajohn.
Since 2006, more than $450,000
has been awarded to start-ups
across the state. This year, a total of $50,000 will be awarded to
the top three submitted business
opportunities: $25,000 for first
prize, $15,000 for second and
$10,000 for third.
The competition is designed to
stimulate business development and
provide support for entrepreneurial
ventures. The 2015 Pappajohn Iowa
Entrepreneurial Venture Competition is open to new and start-up
businesses (in business for less than
four years and located in Iowa).
The first round of the business
plan competition will take place between April 13 and June 8. During
this time, businesses are invited to
submit business information via a
secure online program called Gust.
A link to Gust is available at www.

BY KRISTI NIXON
SHEFFIELD – Even though the
conditions were the best yet for the
West Fork boys’ golf team, the Warhawks didn’t have their best of days,
finishing four strokes back of Nashua-Plainfield on Thursday, April 30.
Coach Doug Sheriff’s team shot
186, two days after recording a 169
at Ridge Stone Golf Course.
Preston Larson was the meet
medalist, carding a 42, and Gunnar
Myers tied for third with 45, but the
Huskies had all four of their golfers
in the 40s to earn the team win.
“It was a great night for golf, that
is for sure,” Sheriff said. “Preston
Larson had a great meet as he was
medalist with a 42.”
Rounding out team scoring for
the Warhawks were Kyle Schulz (49)
and Lucas Klang (50).
“Tournaments are fast approaching,” Sheriff said, “and we are looking for consistency throughout the
team. The conference meet will
be interesting as there are several
teams, including West Fork, which
will be battling for the title.”
Meanwhile, the West Fork girls
had only two competing with one
Tournaments are fast

playing in a meet for the first time
this season.
Grace Shreckengost improved
her score from two days’ previous by
several strokes, benefiting from the
better weather.
“I was happy to see Grace making
some nice progress and so glad to finally have Sarah golf her first meet,”
West Fork girls’ coach Mary Schulz
said. “The girls are inexperienced,
but I am so proud of their hard work
and dedication to get better.”
Two days after shooting one-under-par-35, one of the state’s best
golfers, Sarah McMichael of Nashua-Plainfield, did one stroke better
in leading the Huskies to a girl-boy
sweep at the meet. And, for the second straight meet, the girls’ N-P
team shot equal to the boys’ squad
(182).

In 2001, NASCAR and Indy
Racing League announced
that they would bring events
to the Kansas Speedway for
its inaugural racing season.
Kansas Speedway is a 1 1/2-mile track, stateof-the-art facility, which was a response to
the growing interest for motorsports in the
Midwest. The speedway is strategically located
at the intersection of I-435 and I-70 in Kansas
City, Kan., about 15 miles west of downtown
Kansas City. It seats nearly 72,000 spectators
in the grandstands, but will eventually expand to
150,000 upon completion of its final phase.

FORT DODGE – With only four
players, the Hampton-Dumont boys’
tennis team lost 7-2 at Fort Dodge St.
Edmond on Tuesday, April 28.
Spencer Clark won twice, taking
No. 1 singles 10-7 and then teaming
up with Augie Bollhagen at No. 2
doubles to win 10-1.
The Bulldogs were forced to forfeit Nos. 5 and 6 singles and No. 3
doubles with a couple of its players
competing for the CAL/H-D soccer
team on Tuesday.
“H-D only had four players available to play,” H-D coach Jim Davies
said. “FDSE held out their top two
players for this meet. Spencer Clark
was a double winner for H-D, teaming with Augie Bolhagen in their
doubles match.”
Clark improved to 4-3 in singles
at No. 1.
“Spencer’s patience and persistence paid off in his singles
match,” Davies said, “and was in
control of the net in the doubles
match.
“Jonny (Victor), Augie and Isaac
(Shelton) are improving every match
they play.”
HAMPTON – It was the closest
meet of the season by far for Hampton-Dumont’s boys’ tennis team, but
it wasn’t enough to top Webster City
in a 6-3 loss on Friday, May 1.
Spencer Clark won his fourth
straight singles match of the week,
defeating Dakon Bergquist, 8-5, after it was tied at 5-all and Isaac Shelton won 8-3 at No. 3 singles while
the No. 3 doubles team of Jesus DelValle and Augie Bollhagen won 8-3.
“Best meet of the season so far
for H-D,” Bulldogs’ coach Jim Davies said. “Many close matches. The
No. 1 doubles match was by far the
closest; both teams were hitting and
returning amazing shots.”
Heading into singles play, Webster City led 2-1.
“Isaac Shelton continues to improve with excellent serving and
forehands,” Davies said. “Nos. 4 and
6 singles were close matches, especially for Augie Bollhagen, who lost
a heartbreaker in a close tiebreaker.
“Edgar Romo’s match was close
all the way to the end. Both Jonny
Victor and Jesus DelValle played
very well, but their opponents were
too good for them today.”

to a fourth-place finish at the South
Hardin tennis invitational on Saturday, May 2.
Victor opened with an 8-4 win
over Grundy Center’s Grant Welden, lost in the second round to South
Tama’s Will Henson 8-5 and then
lost the third place match to South
Tama’s Bret Waldo, 8-4, in the double-elimination tourney.
“Jonny Victor played very well but
ran out of steam in his last match to
earn fourth place out of nine participants,” H-D coach Jim Davies said.
In doubles play, Spencer Clark
and Edgar Romo teamed up to finish
sixth after competing in five matches for the day.
Clark and Romo opened with a
preliminary win over the host team’s
Micah and Josiah Dorow, 8-5, went
on to lose a close match against
South Tama’s Rubin Garcia and
Shack Carillo, 8-6, before winning
the next two, 8-2 against another

over Grundy Center’s Garrett Weldon and Tjaden Meester.
They then lost the re-match for
fifth against the Dorow brothers,
9-7, to finish sixth out of 10 teams.
“All of the matches they lost were
extremely close,” Davies said, “and
could have gone either way.”
Also competing in singles was
Isaac Shelton, and in doubles, Augie Bollhagen and Trevor Craig. All
three lost twice.
“Isaac’s serve continues to improve,” Davies said. “Trevor Craig
played well in his first varsity
matches of the year and Augie Bollhagen showed his quickness today at
the net as well as playing back at the
baseline.”

BY KRISTI NIXON
HAMPTON – Survival of the fittest.
When Hampton-Dumont’s Edgar
Romo was warming up for his No.
3 singles tennis match against Ben
Stanish of South Hardin on Monday,
April 27, the two were comparing
notes on who was less fit.
Even though Edgar Romo is a
two-sport athlete this Spring, also
competing for coach Steve Winsor’s
CAL/H-D/B-K boys’ soccer team,
Romo insisted he was less in shape.
After by far the longest match of
the meet in which Romo had led 7-3
only to allow Stanish to rally and tie
it at 9, he could have been right; giving up the next two games to fall 11-9.
“Romo had a marathon match
that went back and forth,” Hampton-Dumont boys’ coach Jim Davies
said, “but fell short at the end.”
That whole match was full of long
rallies that could have gone either
way. At one point, Romo trailed 1540 on his own serve, only to come
back for deuce and win it and take
the 7-3 lead.
And Romo was serving to win it
at 9-8, but was unable to close it out,
losing a couple of key long rallies that
either went into the net or just long.
The Bulldogs were without a couple of players for the meet, forcing
forfeits at No. 6 singles and No. 3
doubles, already giving South Hardin a two-point advantage in the
eventual 7-2 loss to the Tigers.
Spencer Clark won both of his
matches, teaming with Romo at No.
1 doubles to win 10-7. He eventually won by an 8-1 score when his
opponent, Micah Dorow retired due
to injury.
“Spencer Clark was a double winner for H-D,” Davies said. “teaming
with Edgar Romo for doubles.”
The No. 2 doubles team of Jonny
Victor and Cade Parks had a close
match, eventually dropping the 10-7

HUMBOLDT – Hampton-Dumont’s girls’ golf team went to 5-5 on

had two golfers tie for runner-up
with 48.
The Bulldogs’ low score came
from Katelyn Baltes, who carded 50
as H-D shot 225 as a team. Fort Dodge
St. Edmond finished third at 236.
Completing team scoring for
coach Carlene Bergeson’s team were
Caitlin Dombrowski (51), Maria Abbas (61) and Morgan Sietsema (63).
“Katelyn Baltes and Caitlin Dombrowski have been very consistent for
us,” Bergeson said. “If they get some
extra chipping in before conference,
they both have a real good chance of
making all-conference this year.”

came out aggressive in an eventual
7-1 boys soccer win over the CAL/HD/B-K Cadets on Tuesday, April 28.
The Rebels scored five first-half
goals, three in the first 15 minutes
of play, and often left Cadet goalkeeper Juan Trinidad
ad sprawling on
the ground.
At one point in the match, time
was stopped by referees
ferees after Trinidad was visibly bleeding
leeding and had
to be attended to before
efore play could
resume.
In fact, GRNT was so aggressive,
it led to the Cadets’ only score.
Jerry Garcia was
as tackled in the
box late in the first half on one of the
first opportunitiess CAL/H-D had
against the Rebels. His penalty kick
was good at the 36
minute, 7 second
mark as the Cadets trailed 5-1 at
the half.

H-D 7th at Gilbert
GILBERT – Hampton-Dumont’s boys’ track team saved its best finish for
last, taking runner-up in the 4x400-meter relay at the 2015 Bengal Relays on
Monday, April 27.
The 4x400 team clocked in at 3 minutes, 37.44 seconds, less than a second
behind host school Gilbert as the Bulldogs finished seventh overall in the
team race with 26 team points.
Gilbert was later crowned the team champions over CMB after a scoring
error was fixed. Originally, the top eight places scored which announced CMB
as the winner, but the meet was meant to only score the top six places, giving
the win to the host school 143-136 over the Raiders at the eight-team meet.
And the Tigers won it despite going without elite distance specialist and
Iowa State commit Thomas Pollard.
Other place winners for coach Dan Aalbers’ squad
were thirds by the 4x200 and Bo Brass in the high
jump, a fourth for the shuttle hurdle relay and a pair
of sixth-place finishes by the 4x100 relay and Aiden
Carr in the discus.

Hard to believe
Track season
flying by for senior
performers
BY KRISTI NIXON
HAMPTON – Ask the seniors
taking part in Friday’s Co-Ed Bulldog Relays and they find it hard to
believe that state-qualifying is only
a few weeks away.
That will mark the end of their
school year, and for some, the end of
their athletic career.
That being said, personal marks
were recorded at Hampton as the
Hampton-Dumont girls were fourth
out of 10 teams with 74 points, West
Fork girls right behind (65); the Warhawk boys third in their portion of
the team race (74) while H-D boys
were eighth (47) out of 11 teams.
Among the PRs were Madison
Mason in the shot put, besting her
previous mark by more than a foot
and a half at 37-7.75.
“It’s been something I’ve been
working toward for the past two
years,” Mason said of reaching the
mark. “I haven’t been able to reach
the 37-marker, so it’s just kind of a
relief knowing that I can hit it and
it’s there for me this year. I’ve gotten
quicker across the ring and that has
helped tremendously.”
She won the event by more than
three feet with the runner-up throwing 34-10.25. And Mason was second in the discus at 117-3.
“The small things that I do (are the
difference),” Mason said, “like creating more height for me, getting more
leg power. Carlee (Bertram) and I
lift, we do plios, agility, we pretty
much do anything after our throwing
workouts to make us better and get
that extra inch or foot that we want.
“My discus stays consistent and
that is what I can ask for at a time
like this. The good time when I need
it is when conference and district
come around. Hopefully, that consistency stays there with me and gets
me where I want to go.”
The only other winner among
the girls for either H-D or West Fork
was the Bulldogs’ Cassy Miller in
the 100 hurdles, who also set a new
school mark in the event. It surpassed the previous school mark set
last week by Nadilee Eiklenborg in
16.16 seconds.
However, the H-D girls’ shuttle
hurdle relay recorded a second place

Local realty associations merge
The National Association
of Realtors in Chicago announced that it is has approved
the merger of the Fort Dodge
Board of Realtors, Heart of
Iowa Board of Realtors, Humboldt County Board of Realtors
and Wright-Hamilton Board of
Realtors. The new organization
will immediately begin to operate under the name Heart of

The members of the four separate associations each voted to

Together the new association
will have a combined membership of nearly 200 Realtors. The
Heart of Iowa Regional Board of Realtors will serve residents in Franklin, Webster, Humboldt, Wright, Hamilton, Hardin and Guthrie counties.
Kris Brend, Executive Officer for the Central Iowa
Board of Realtors is now also serving as Executive
Officer for the Heart of Iowa Regional Board of Realtors. A newly elected board of directors is in place,
comprised of representatives of each of the previous
boards.
The first president of the merged association will
be Troy Anderson, broker at Coldwell Banker, Fort
Dodge. Marlene Thompson with Thompson Real Es-

HUMBOLDT – CAL/H-D/BK’s boys’ soccer team dropped a 3-2
match against previously winless
Humboldt on Thursday, April 30 on
the road.
“We played very well,” Cadets’
coach Steve Winsor said. “We just had
mental lapses and couldn’t finish.”
According to Winsor, his team
out-shot the Wildcats by a 3-1 ratio,
but the shots weren’t on target.
“We just didn’t put it on goal,”
Winsor said of his team’s shot attempts. “It’s tough, we did everything right except shoot on goal.”
One of Humboldt’s scores came
on a corner kick.
“We weren’t marking up,” Winsor said of that goal. “Mistakes in the
backfield. When a team is 0-7, and on
their home field, they are dangerous.”

New Course Sparks Huge Interest
MERCY HOSPITAL, NIACC, AND HDHS TEAM UP TO OFFER AN
EMT COURSE
By Morgan Kalkwarf and Cole Miller
This year HamptonDumont High School
introduced a new, intriguing program; an offering
open to all HDHS students.
The class is a college level
emergency medical training
class that is taught by Erran Miller. Along the way,
several other experts have
joined Erran to instruct the
class. Some of those helpers include: Matt Retz,
Mark Morrison, Justin Hesnard, Wyatt Brown, Nancy
Retz, and Julie Baltes.
Miller says that some positives that come with work-
ing with high school students are that they are very
quick learners. He added,
“High school students are
used to classroom settings
and pick up the material
very quickly.” At the end
of the course, students will
have the option of taking

hopes for this group of

will go through with the

lot of effort and time have
been put forth by them,” he
says. “And it would be fun
for me to see them actually
become EMT’s.”
The course has been a
combination effort between
Hampton-Dumont High
School, NIACC, and Mercy
Hospital. Students are required to complete twenty
clinical hours at Mercy
Hospital. That’s one thing
they have found to incredibly helpful. Senior student
Charlie Flickinger explains,
“We get hands-on experience with patients.” Cole
Miller, also a senior, adds,
“It’s also been nice getting
to know the staff and seeing
what goes on behind the
scenes.”
When asked about some
of the limitations of the
course, Erran Miller explains, “Being at class
ready to learn at 7:00 each
morning is no doubt hard
for the students. They have
done a great job of showing
up and being ready to learn
each morning. I have been
impressed with their eagerness to learn!” Miller says
that his greatest enjoyment
has been working with
all fourteen students
and seeing the “lights
come on”. The hands-on
days are by far the most
fun for him. He was also
excited for the students
clinicals and ride time
rotations.
While Miller is unsure
about the future of the
class, he states, “I think
it would be nice to see
the class offered again in
the future.” Whether or
not it is offered again will
ultimately depend on the
demand for the class.

43 H-D students recognized
for financial literacy achievement
Students at Hampton-Dumont
Community High School received
financial literacy certification last
week after successfully completing
the Iowa Financial Literacy Program.
This program is made possible
by the financial support of Hampton State Bank and the Iowa College
Student Aid Commission (Iowa College Aid). Both organizations have
made a multiple-year commitment to
the school. A ceremony recognizing
the students’ achievement was held
on May 1.
“Hampton State Bank congratulates the students for the successful
completion of the financial literacy
curriculum,” said Hampton State
Bank President Ron Raney. “Hampton State Bank’s continued commitment to the financial literacy initiative is a top priority.”
To date from 2011 through spring
2015, Ha mpton-D u mont Hig h
School has recognized 388 financially literate high school students.
“In today’s society, credit cards
and other debt is a major concern,”
said Emileigh Eilderts, high school
social studies teacher. “Young adults
need to know how their spending
and savings habits affect their everyday lives. Financial literacy is
knowledge that students will use every day after graduation.”
In addition, students in Mrs. Eilderts’ economics class took a financial literacy test at UNI earlier in the
week. The test was given by Mike
Finley, the founder of UNI’s financial literacy club. He previously addressed Mrs. Eilderts’ classes about
the importance of financial literacy
in one’s life. This was an opportunity for students to test their knowledge and have a chance to win up to
$25,000 if they score the highest.
However, even if no one from Hampton-Dumont wins money, the students gained a financial education
that will benefit them throughout
their lives. Hampton State Bank was
pleased to help cover the cost of this
experience.
Hampton State Bank’s support
and financial commitment made it
possible to bring the Iowa Financial
Literacy Program to Hampton-Dumont Community Schools. The Iowa
College Student Aid Commission is
the statewide partner for the Iowa
Financial Literacy Program. The online platform, endorsed by the Iowa
Bankers Association and powered
by EverFi, is incorporated into the
school’s existing curricula.
The Iowa Financial Literacy Program uses the latest in new media
technologies – 3-D gaming, social
networking, online animations, video, and messaging tools – to bring
complex financial concepts to life.
Upon completion, students are certified in more than 600 core topics
in personal finance. The learning
modules meet the financial literacy
essential concepts and skills of the
Iowa Core, which ensures that students leave high school prepared to
face 21st century challenges.

Highway 3 Raceway dissolves, donates funds
Plagge 80th
Marvin Plagge will celebrate his
80th birthday on May 17. He is married to LaVonne. His children are
Julie Castillo and husband Elias,
Jennifer Cross and husband Tom,
John Plagge and wife Anne and Brian Pals. He has 9 grandchildren. His
siblings include a sister, Delores McDermott and husband Dennis.
Birthday wishes may be sent to
Marvin at 505 S. Akir St., Latimer,
IA 50452.
The Highway 3 Raceway in Allison voted in December to dissolve
the organization and distribute the
remaining funds to community
groups throughout Butler County.
Highway 3 Raceway recently
donated $2,000 apiece to five organizations: the Allison Ambulance
Depar tment (def ibulator, EMT
training), Allison Fire Department
(equipment for new trucks), Allison
AmVets (new furnace), Shell Rock
Emergency Services Building Fund
(new building) and Retrieving Freedom of Waverly (dog training). Retrieving Freedom is a non-profit organization training service dogs for
veterans, children with autism and
adults and children with diabetes.
The Butler County Speedway was
built in 1997. The first races were
held in 1998 and were promoted by
the Butler County Fair Association.
It was a NASCAR-sanctioned track.
The track had multiple promoters
from 1998-2001, however, no races
were held from 2002-04.
A group of volunteers organized
Highway 3 Raceway to promote races at the Butler County Fairgrounds
until a promoter could be found.
Highway 3 Raceway was organized
as a non-profit organization. Highway 3 Raceway leased the track
from the Butler County Fair Association and started promoting Races
at the Speedway in 2005. Highway 3
Raceway promoted six to eight special races a year from 2005-11.
In 2012, the organization hired
TTMM to promote 17 races at the
track. The first race was held on
April 21, but TTMM canceled all remaining races after July 11.
In 2013, only one race was scheduled on June 18 during the Butler
County Fair.
No races were scheduled last
year. All equipment was sold or donated prior to the organization’s dissolution.

care and support we received there; from the surgeon, nurses, receptionist
and techs. The wonderful help and support from our children, their spouses
and grandchildren. Having complications, we traveled by ambulance to Allan

FCAC awards
scholarships to
local students
T he Fr a n k l i n Cou nt y A r t s
Council (FCAC) recently awarded fine arts scholarships to Bailey
Condon and Christian Vallery, of
Hampton-Dumont High School,
and Micayla Schulz, of West Fork
High School. The scholarships help
young people in Franklin County
who are planning to major in an area
of fine arts.
Condon is the daughter of Melanie Condon, Hampton. She will
study music therapy at Wartburg
College next fall. Condon has been
interested in music since early childhood and was very successful in fine
arts endeavors in high school and
in the community, including band,
vocal music, drama and speech. Her
goal is to help people through music
therapy.
Schulz is the daughter of Teresa
Schulz, Sheffield. She will attend
Wartburg College, where she will
major in music therapy. Schulz has
been involved in many aspects of
instrumental and vocal music in her
school and community. Her goal is
to help people through music the
way music has helped in her own
personal life.
Vallery is the son of David and
Dawn Vallery, Hampton. He will
attend Lawrence University in Appleton, Wis., where he will major
in piano performance. Vallery has
been involved in instrumental music since an early age at his school
and community. He has earned numerous awards in both saxophone
and piano performance. Vallery’s
goals include performing piano at
every opportunity, managing a private piano studio or teaching piano
at a four-year college.
“Nothing interests me in the way
music does,” he said. “Music will be
my livelihood.”
FCAC awards the fine arts scholarships annually. Funds are raised
through sponsorships and ticket
sales for the Young Performing Artists Scholarship Concert held annually in March. All Franklin County
high school seniors who plan to attend college and pursue a career in
the fine arts are eligible to apply.

Tree
plantings
continue
throughout
Hampton
Arbor Day enjoyed an extended
celebration in Hampton last week.
Multiple tree plantings were held
througout the city in honor of the annual holiday, which was cut short the
previous week due to wet weather
and soggy ground.
On April 28, residents of Franklin Country View nursing facility
observed Arbor Day by planting
six maple trees and two evergreens
on the FGH campus. The trees were
provided by Rick and Julie Salvesen
and can be seen from the nursing
home’s dining room window.
The residents, many of whom
lived much of their lives outdoors
enjoying nature as farmers, are participants in a discussion group facilitated by the FCV activities coordinator. In that group they discussed
their interest in trees and expressed
a desire to plant a few on campus.
The plantings continued on April
30 at Waterworks Park in Hampton. First grade students from Katy
Speake and Shelly Aalbers’ classes
helped Hampton Tree Board members plant a bur oak, red oak and
American linden tree.
ABOVE: Teamwork always
makes things go faster.
First graders Jacob
Mahler, Liam Murray and
Keaton Gunderson helped
Randy Sanders plant this
tree during a special field

The students also learned how
to care for the trees after planting
them. The Hampton Tree Board in-
tends to plant more than 200 trees
at various locations throughout the
city this year.

Midwest Meter, Inc./MID:COM,
Hampton, announced recently the

on April 27. She will be trained in
all aspects of MID:COM production
from assembly of wire cables to soldering to board assembly.

H-D student participates in
World Food Prize Iowa Youth Institute
On April 27, The World Food
Prize Iowa Youth Institute at Iowa
State University brought together
over 250 high school students from
123 different high schools from
across Iowa to explore critical global issues and academic and career
paths in STEM fields.
Hampton-Dumont High School
participated this year. Student Caleigh Sutter attended the day’s
events, assisted by teacher/mentor
Sarah DeBour. The paper focused on
education in Ethiopia.
Gov. Terry Branstad provided
the afternoon keynote address to the
students and business leaders from
across the state. Honored guests at
the event included Congressman
David Young, State Sen. Rita Hart,
Rep. Abby Finkenauer, ISU President Steven Leath and former U.S.
Ambassador to Latvia Charles Larson. Students were able to interact
and learn from these professionals
during the luncheon.
Dr. Norman Borlaug, Iowa’s great
hero who is now enshrined in the
U.S. Capitol for his great agricultural and humanitarian achievements,
founded the World Food Prize and
also envisioned this and other World
Food Prize youth programs as the
way to inspire the next generation
of scientists and humanitarians to go
into critical fields and to help solve
the challenge ahead: Feeding the
9 billion people who will be on our
planet by the year 2050.
The Iowa Youth Institute connects students interested in science,
agriculture and related fields with
Iowa leaders and innovators on the
cutting edge of science and research.
Each participating high school student wrote a research paper on a key
issue that impacts hunger in another
a country, such as water scarcity or
gender inequality.
The students propose their own
solutions in small-group roundtable
discussions facilitated by academic and industry experts, and students and teachers also participate
in hands-on immersion activities in
research facilities and labs at Iowa
State University.
