After the original Building Excellent Schools Today grant construction in 2012, there was about $216,000 remaining. However, due to the successful award of a second BEST grant, the district needed to hold back $44,000 for the cash match. Miles explained that about $172,000 was remaining for other projects. The district budget and facilities committee prioritized other projects to be completed, and those are now almost finished. Actual cost of those projects is $140,885.

He detailed the specific procedures he used for conducting the audit and concluded that policies and procedures for the random drug testing program are being followed in the building with every random sample selected for review. He added that all samples had accurate numbers and appropriate paperwork. There was no discrepancy between the tested numbers collected by the school and by the testing vendor, Centennial Mental Health.

Ardie Besse is pictured with samples of her 51 years of memories as she prepares for retirement from her local beauty salon business. It is the plan that Ruth McMurdy, Besse’s first customer in 1963, will be her last customer at noon Friday, Jan. 24. The community will have a chance to join Ardie for cake and reminiscing from 2-6 p.m. Friday. —Enterprise photo Ardie Besse looks to retirement as a chance to learn how to relax By Brenda Johnson Brandt Ardie Besse has juggled hair appointments, community involvement, family life and more with much finesse for 51 years. But life will take on a new look as of Friday, Jan. 24, when Besse retires her scissors. As with everything she does, Besse’s final day in business will be marked with her flair for fun and memory making. Ruth McMurdy, Besse’s first customer in 1963, will be her last client at noon on Friday as McMurdy travels from Corpus Christi, Texas, to add an extra touch to Ardie’s last day. Forty-six employees have worked for Ardie, and any who can are invited to be part of a picture with her at 4 p.m. From 2-6 p.m. has been set aside for all members of the community to stop by her shop at 235 S. Campbell to enjoy refreshments and reminisce with the soon-to-be retiree. A windfall phone call from Channel 9News out of Denver Monday, Jan. 20, left Besse breathless as they said they would be making the trip to Holyoke to cover her story Friday. SunSet View gets a clean start with the new laundry facility With all SunSet View Home tenant laundry traffic previously confined to a 90-squarefoot room at the community center entrance, it became clear that a new laundry facility was going to be necessary at some point. Ten years after identifying the need for a larger facility, SunSet View Homes moved all three washing and drying machines out of the cramped room due east into a recently completed 940-square-foot building. Along with the additional space, the building houses twice as many machines and a lounge room. “So far all of the tenants have really liked it,” Holyoke Housing Authority director Corey Zeiler said. “It’s much better than being crammed into a tiny room.” (Cont. on Page 3) Business begins in 1963 After graduation from Holyoke High School in 1962, Ardie Peterson started school at McCook Beauty Academy in McCook, Neb., graduating in May of 1963. A young go-getter, Ardie worked for three months for Delores McPherson in Holyoke before opening her own shop in late August of 1963 at the age of 19. The original Ardie’s opened as a one-station shop at 142 S. Interocean Ave. That building was razed and is now part of the First Pioneer National Bank parking lot north of the bank. Ardie’s quickly expanded to include two stations and two hair dryers. In 1970 it was remodeled inside and out as the business grew to include three shampoo units and one combout unit. A few years later, Ardie started selling clothes for Edie’s of Imperial, Neb., and the original Ardie’s building was simply inadequate for the needs of the expanding shop. Ardie and her family decided to build a new structure, and it was erected at 235 S. Campbell Ave., the store’s current location. Ardie’s Beauty Barr and Boutique moved there in May of 1976. In 2003, Besse sold the building, closed the boutique and continued to run Ardie’s Beauty Barr with other operators. Over her 51-year history in business, Besse employed 46 people, some short-term and others for a long time. Both Velma Wettstein and Debby Banaka worked more than 30 years at Ardie’s. Of course one of her favorites was her mom, Frieda Peterson. After Ardie’s parents sold the Rainbow Cafe, Frieda attended McCook Beauty Academy to receive her training. She started at Ardie’s in December of 1965, working as a hairstylist for 20 years and for a number of years after that in the boutique. “There were several times that my mother guided me into the right direction during work situations/employee situations,” said Besse. “I don’t know how I could have made it without her.” Prices, styles and even regulations have seen extensive change in Besse’s 51-year career. In the beginning, her prices were $2.50 for a shampoo and set and $1.75 for a haircut. While prices have certainly increased, they’ve not kept up with inflation, according to Besse’s calculations. When Besse first started, she gave lots of permanents to young and old alike. Now many have stopped getting perms as styles have changed. All haircuts were done with scissors in Besse’s early days of beauty school. Razor cuts were added about halfway through school, and when she started in business, Ardie said, she did more razor than scissor cuts.

He died Jan. 16, 2014, at North Colo rado Medi cal Center in Greeley at age 94. Harold’s parents, August and Elizabeth (Rothmann) Schroetlin, along with broth ers, Richard and Marvin, and sister, Lorene, lived and farmed where McKee Medi cal Center in Loveland now stands. Farming was a lifelong heritage that Harold learned, lived and passed on to his chil dren from past generations. The Schroetlins were pioneers in the new sugar beet industry along the Front Range. Harold g raduated from Loveland High School in 1937. It was at an ice skating party that he met “one of those Senn kids coming in from east of town,” Mildred Senn. Interest ingly enough, Mildred knew Rich and Lorene (Harold’s brother and sister), and Harold knew Bob and Art (Mildred’s brothers) before they ever met each other. On May 11, 1941, Harold and Mildred were married in Mildred’s grandfather’s house east of Loveland. The couple settled on a farm southeast of Loveland. Four sons, Fred, John, Jim and Mark, and a daughter, Peggy, were born as the family farmed, raised cattle, pigs and sheep, and started a dairy in the Love land, Berthoud and Welling ton area. In 1972 the whole family moved to Yuma and set up a farming operation close to Clarkville. Although they were busy raising crops, animals and five kids, Harold still found time to serve on many boards (Farm Bureau, Big Thompson Water District), as a school board member for Mt. Hope School, on church committees, as a Sunday school teacher and played on the church softball team. He was a member of Great Western Beet Growers Associ ation and was a representative on the board for local growers. Harold enjoyed playing golf, traveling and the morning and afternoon coffee gather ings at the Beacon. For several years after retirement he was thrilled to help out the farming sons however he could. Harold was always eager to talk about all topics and amazed his visitors how he kept up with current events and farming practices. His life could be summed up in these words: “faith, family and farm ing,” in that order. He was preceded in death by his parents, August and Eliza beth; his two brothers, Rich and Marv; daughter-in-law, Pat; and granddaughter-in-law, Shasta. Survivors include his wife of almost 73 years, Mildred; sister, Lorene Senn of Kla math Falls, Ore.; sons, Fred and wife Sue, John and wife Deb, Jim and wife Linda, all of Yuma, and Mark and wife Laura of Holyoke; and daughter, Peggy and hus band Dave Lillich of Yuma; grandchildren, Keith and wife Jean, Julie and husband Chad Ewing, Jerry and wife Holly Boese, Jamie and hus band Nick Ratterman, Kyle and wife Kris, Kevin, Jacquie McCall, Josh and wife Amber, Curt and wife Laura Beth, Tara and husband Ricky Edelen and Mason Lillich; great-grandchildren, Amber, T.J. and husband Owen Wash burn, Wendy Wood, Sarah Haley, Ashley Ewing, Anna Boese, Aislynn Boese, Gracyn Ratterman, Caleb, Elizabeth, Rebekah, Sherayah, Jessica, Kyrie, Lydia, Kourtney, Ja kob, Justin, Ashley McCall, Marc McCall, Miranda, Joe, Brett, Daniel, Andrew and one more expected in May; greatgreat-grandchildren, Trinity Bradley, Azrielle Washburn, Faythe Parsons, Skylar Wood, Cayden Wood, Malikye Wood and Kaysen Wood. Harold knew the saving grace of Jesus and leaves his family and friends with the peaceful knowledge of his salvation. “Lord, now You let Your servant go in peace, ac cording to Your word” (Luke 2:29). The funeral service was held Jan. 21 at First Presbyterian Church in Yuma with Donna Herman officiating. Interment was held Jan. 22 at Rest Haven Cemetery in Loveland. Baucke Funeral Home di rected the service. Mary Matson Mary Audrey Matson was born April 4, 1909, near Val paraiso, Neb. She died Jan. 12, 2014. She had reached the remarkable age of 104. She was the third of eight children born to Carl and Mary Creathbaum Schulz. When Mary was an infant, the family moved to a farm southeast of Ogallala, Neb. When she was 5 years old, the family moved to Brule, Neb. Mary attended elemen tary school at the East Vail District #19 and attended high school in Ogallala. She graduated with the Class of 1929. After high school, Mary worked for different neighbors doing housework and later worked in Ogallala and North Platte, Neb. On July 3, 1934, she was married to Milton Bertram in Lexington, Neb. One son, Mil ton Fredrick, was born to this union, but he died in infancy. In 1939, Mary was at a dance in Ogallala when she met Earl Matson. They later married on Aug. 21, 1943, at the Meth odist parsonage in Grant, Neb. Two children were born to this union. They made their home on a farm near Grant until 1954 when they moved to Holyoke. In 1969 they returned to Grant. Mary continued to maintain her home in Grant after Earl died in 1992. She eventually moved to Park Ridge Assisted Living and in 2006 moved to the Golden Ours Convalescent Home where she lived until her death. Mary had been an active member of Eastern Star and the United Methodist Church in Grant. She was recognized by the church with the unsung saint award for her tireless devotion of calling people for volunteer jobs in the church. She also called for Eastern Star and the Grant Bloodmobile. She was always enjoyable to talk to. In addition to her husband and infant son Freddie, Mary was preceded in death by her seven siblings. She is survived by one son, Leslie and wife Susan Matson of Greeley; one daughter, Donna and husband Jerry Taylor of Colorado Springs; three grandchildren, Dean Taylor and Lindsey and Ben jamin Matson; two sisters-inlaw, Alma Schulz of Ogallala and Jean Schulz of Fort Col lins; and other relatives and friends.

This quintessential story brings together an engag ing mix of human passions, supernatural forces and the transcendent power of selfsacrificing love. The role of Giselle provides a dancer with many technical and dramatic challenges, from the charac ter’s early love to her poignant descent into madness and final gesture of forgiveness from beyond the grave. The first act of the ballet is filled with historical detail and rustic color. By contrast, the second act plunges the audience into an eerie moonlit forest haunted by the ethe real Wilis—vengeful spirits of young brides who died before their wedding day. With its combination of memorable story and exqui site choreography, “Giselle” is the perfect way to discover classical ballet. The production by Sir Peter Wright catches the atmo sphere of this great roman tic ballet, especially in the perfection of its White Act, with ghostly maidens drifting through the forest in spectacu lar patterns—one of the most famous of any scenes for the corps de ballet. Giselle dances with lightness and fragility, giving the impression of float ing through the mist. This is one of The Royal Bal let’s most loved and admired productions, faithful to the spirit of the 1841 original, yet always fresh at each revival. Saving Mr. Banks—Twot i m e A c a d e my Aw a rd ® – winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen. When Walt Disney’s daugh ters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompro mising writer who has abso lutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop sell ing and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Dis ney’s plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an allout onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge. He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immov able and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp. It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Pop pins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

The Holyoke Enterprise, Holyoke, Colo. 80734, Thurs., Jan. 23, 2014—Page 3 Besse looks back on 50 years of hair styling. . . (Cont. from Page 1) Coloring has changed, as well, said Besse, as the service has moved from frosting caps to foiling. In her early years of hairdressing, Besse said, it was against the law to cut men’s hair in a licensed beauty shop unless one had a barber license. Hairstylist regulations disallowed open-toe shoes and required that socks be worn. Besse said all hairdressers wore uniforms when she first started. Surprise inspections from the state department were conducted every year. Besse said she knew it was an inspector when a lady walked in dressed in a suit, wearing a hat, carrying a clipboard and sporting a nice handbag. Inspectors were looking to make sure there was no hair in the sinks, floors were clean, sterilizers were in place, rollers were free of hair, operator licenses were posted, bathrooms were spotless and more. Besse said shops had a second chance to remedy their citations, but ultimately, the inspectors could shut them down. Adding fun to the day-to-day routine is something Besse does naturally. She said recently, “I have a little bit of my mom in me. I like to clown it up and have fun.” A long-standing tradition at Ardie’s, starting in the early 1970s, was to dress up for Halloween—not just Ardie, but the whole staff. Once her crew dressed as clowns, went into a local bank with their sacks and said it was a stick-up, not realizing that bank examiners were there. Oops! During the time of cattle mutilations, Besse remembers dressing as aliens. This was at her former location on Interocean Avenue. The store had a shop ledge out front, and she recalls her green alien self sitting in the ledge. A man walked by one way and stared and stared. He turned around and came back and stared again at her. The next time, she winked at him and he didn’t return. She still shares a good laugh when telling that story. Besse organized men’s night at holiday time, and clothes from her boutique were modeled in a style show to help the attendees select gifts for their wives or friends. She used her expertise in this field to organize style shows for various organizations. One of her biggest ventures was organizing Holyoke’s Centennial Style Show in 1988. It included clothes from all eras, models of all ages, some featured clothes lent by the museum, music from each time period and even entertainment such as a Charleston routine from the 1920s. Twenty-five years later, she served as an organizer for Holyoke’s quasquicentennial celebration this past June and even wore her early-day hairdresser uniform on her float in the parade. Always quick to lend a community hand to help with programs such as this, Besse has become well-known for her Lily May show. Lily May stars specifically at events of the Melissa Memorial Hospital Foundation, on which Besse serves as a member. Lily May has provided much laughter and, according to Besse, has one more go-around. Last time she appeared, Lily May made jokes about getting old and said she was going to find the fountain of youth. Only Besse knows what surprise Lily May will bring to the MMHF Legacy of Thanks this spring. Recognizing something new was needed for the Holyoke Chamber of Commerce’s annual Christmas opening night, Besse organized the first Parade of Lights. That event just keeps getting bigger and was a huge success last month at the Chamber’s Country Christmas. Besse was the first to sign up for the Chamber’s Homecoming band back in the 1980s when she donned her high school twirling outfit and spun her baton down main street. She enjoyed teaching dance classes—basic dance and line dancing—and choreographed the school musicals for about 10 years when Clark Ginapp served as director. Besse’s community involvement was never-ending. She taught Sunday school at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Amherst. For about 10 years she served on the Phillips County Fair Board. Besse was an assistant 4-H leader for the Amherst 4-H club and served on the Fair Queen committee as well. She donated belt buckles for the Phillips County fair queens for more than 25 years. The Montana Silversmiths jewelry dealership that Besse continued to maintain after she closed her boutique has now been taken over by Jake’s Feed in Holyoke in anticipation of Besse’s retirement. Her 19 standing appointment gals have been encouraged by Besse to go different places, and she’s appreciative of the local hairstylists who are taking care of her customers. It’s been an emotional time the past few weeks as her standings have their “last” with Ardie. “I will really miss taking care of my special ladies and making them feel and look pretty,” Besse admitted. “That smile on their face when I get done fixing their hair is worth millions,” she added. “I just knew I was ready— both mentally and physically,” said Besse of her upcoming retirement. She said she wasn’t ready five years ago, but she is now. Reminiscing on her career, Besse recalls a low time one year after she took the big bite to build a new building. She fell while roller skating and broke five bones (two in her arm and three in her Follow Us on Facebook The Holyoke Enterprise We are where you are Open House Ardie’s Retirement Party Friday, Jan. 24 — 2-6 p.m. Join us for cake and reminiscing!

She was in the hospital for two weeks and used a wheelchair for a couple of months. The accident happened the first part of April, and Besse wasn’t even able to walk on crutches until July, while she worried constantly about losing her shop. It was a big moment in her life, and her employees and family helped out in a huge way. But Besse said she still struggles from the after-effects of her injuries. If it weren’t for that accident, she would probably still work a few more years, she said. On the lighter side, Besse is looking forward to attending grandkids’ activities. Children and grandchildren include Brent and Tina Vieselmeyer and sons Austin and Alex in Amherst, Charla Leighton and daughters Sierra and Sidney in Loveland, Derrick and Stacey Besse and daughter Taryn in Delaware, and Bridgette Kaslon and sons Kaleb and Garrett in St. Paul, Neb. Besse said she also hopes to spend more time learning her husband Fred Besse’s trucking business and helping him. She might even go with him once in a while. Her store always had flowers blooming in the front yard, and she looks forward to spending lots of time in her yard at home. Her first plan is to redo a flower bed for a memorial garden for her brother Don in her backyard. She’ll continue to work a couple of nights a week at Cobblestone Lounge to help transition to retirement. And she said she plans to exercise and get into shape. One thing Besse is most looking forward to is being able to sit outside in the mornings and have breakfast or coffee on the deck and patio and just sit back and relax. Maybe she’ll do some reading too. She said she’s had the nice things in life, but this is much different and she’s going to love it. She is extremely appreciative of those who have been a part of her life. Admitting she doesn’t even know how to relax, Besse will be on a learning curve for a while. “But I am going to learn,” she pledges, adding that she’s looking forward to it very much. Centrally located within the SunSet View Homes property, a new laundry facility was recently completed for tenants. —Enterprise photo New laundry, lounge a welcome addition at SunSet View. . . (Cont. from Page 1) With the additional machines, Zeiler said there hasn’t been nearly as many tenants waiting in line to use the laundry services. Aside from the limited space of the previous room, another driving factor for the new facility was to make the laundry area handicap accessible. In the new area, two of the six dryers are handicap accessible as they are front-loading. All dryers are also front-loading. A handicap accessible bathroom was also constructed. The new building includes a lounge room where tenants can fold clothes, play cards or rest while they wait for their laundry. A new 55-inch television was another welcomed addition to the facility. Construction on the building was handled by Mike Smith Construction of Holyoke, beginning in July. The project SunSet View tenants are able to enjoy a new lounge room while they wait for their laundry to finish. —Enterprise photo was completed in November prior to Thanksgiving. With the facility strictly for tenant use only, tenants will be able to access the building 24 hours a day with an identification card. Don’t forget to include us on your next trip!

Studies show visitation improves quality of life for patients and residents. Regular visits prevent residents from feeling depressed and isolated and often enhance their initiative to rehabilitate aggressively to return home sooner. In addition, regular visitation tends to improve the quality and level of care the resident receives. Facilities tend to give more staff time to residents who have regular visitors to observe whether the care being provided is sufficient. The elderly have a wealth of knowledge that all of us may benefit from. In sharing their wisdom and knowledge, seniors might feel a renewed purpose, freedom from boredom or increased vitality. These positive feelings might be increased when a senior shares an interest or passion, such as fishing or a craft like sewing. Things to remember when visiting seniors in a nursing home: —Keep your promises. If you promise to visit your loved one, make sure you do, otherwise the nursing home resident will be disappointed. If you need to reschedule your visit, be sure to call the nursing home. —Knock before you enter the room. Your aging loved one’s room in a nursing home is considered his or her individual home. It is important that you respect their privacy and living space. Be sure to knock and ask permission before you enter. If the nursing home resident is unable to respond, be sure to announce your name before you open the door. —Be affectionate. Physical contact is important to seniors in nursing homes. Hug, kiss or hold the hand of your aging relative if possible to let them know and feel that you love them and that they are not forgotten. —Be a good listener. When visiting your aging loved one in a nursing home, it is important that you listen to him or her attentively. Let your loved one do the talking so he or she does not feel rushed when sharing their stories and feelings. Try not to dominate the conversation. Be a good listener, even if you’ve heard the story or topic several times. Listening attentively to your aging loved one’s story lets him or her enjoy the moment with you. —Bond with your elderly loved one. You want to make your aging parent or relative happy and feel loved. But what you can you do together during your visit to the nursing home? Think of things that you used to do together like playing board games, watching movies, singing or doing arts and crafts. If you cannot think of any activities, you can always contact the nursing home’s activity director for ideas and suggestions for seniors. Remember, doing things together will make your visit fun and memorable! —Bring family pictures and videos. If you have recent family pictures or videos, be sure to bring it. This will definitely put a smile on your aging loved one’s face. Keeping the nursing home resident up to date about family events and activities they’ve missed will make your elderly loved one happy. —Bring the family. If you have children or grandchildren, bring them when you go to the nursing home to encourage a relationship between the kids and your elderly loved one. Kids are so much fun, they will definitely help brighten up your aging loved one’s day! —Plan a day trip. If you plan to take your seniors or elderly loved one out of the nursing home facility, be sure to call the nursing home in advance. Talk to your aging parent or relative about it to find out how he or she feels about your plan. You will also have to talk to the nursing home staff or administrator to make special arrangements for medicines, special equipment or other things that your aging loved one might need. —Thank the caregivers. Take time to talk to the caregivers and staff members in the nursing home. Be sure to thank them and show your appreciation for taking care of your aging relative. Do not hesitate to compliment the caregiver for a job well done with the seniors. —SeniorCareHomes.com recommends you should enjoy your time and do not rush. Spending quality time with your elderly loved one in the nursing home is something that will forever be cherished by the nursing home resident, so make it a memorable one. When visiting seniors in a long-term care facility, it may also be necessary to come back another time. Residents have the right to refuse any visitors as well, as we do in our own homes. We can make that choice to answer our front doors, or not. Be respectful of their time. Long-term care facilities are always looking for volunteers; if you have the time and ability to be involved in an activity or simply visit with a resident, give the activities coordinator a call at your local nursing home or assisted living. Thinking About Health—By Trudy Lieberman How much should we pay for medicines? At the tail end of last year, the Food and Drug Administration approved a drug that may cure some 3 million Americans who have hepatitis C, a disease that interferes with liver function and can eventually lead to liver cancer. It’s a serious illness; many people don’t know they have it until the first symptoms show up years later, and those who do have it undergo grueling and sometimes ineffective treatments. So when Gilead Sciences, the manufacturer of sofosbuvir, which goes by the brand name Sovaldi, announced its new drug was ready for prime time, doctors who treat patients with the disease cheered. Results of clinical trials showed side effects appeared to be mild compared to those from conventional treatment, and cure rates seemed to be high. A hepatitis expert at Johns Hopkins said, “This is about as hot as I’ve ever seen.” Extension Corner—By Brian Talamantes Glyphosate resistance Glyphosate resistance has been a growing concern for a number of years and for good reason. Glyphosate is the most important herbicide in use today and has been said to be as important to food production as penicillin is to medicine. Glyphosate kills plants because it inhibits an enzyme called 5-enolpyruyl-shikimate3-phosphate synthase—can you say that? Me neither. This enzyme is referred to as EPSPS commonly and is essential to the creation of aromatic amino acids. Much research has been done to identify what it is that makes a plant resistant to glyphosate, and to my knowledge, there are basically three ways that have been identified. They either have a mutation of the EPSPS gene, have a trait that bars glyphosate from ever reaching EPSPS at levels that are toxic to the plant, and more recently discovered is a method called gene amplification. Gene amplification is a wellknown part of plant evolution but was only identified as a method of glyphosate resistance in 2010 (in this case in the plant palmer amaranth). Gene amplification works by making an overabundance of the same gene, and in the case of EPSPS, creates a plant that is resistant to glyphosate. What was identified in palmer amaranth (a member of the pigweed family) is that the EPSPS gene was amplified in resistant plants by 40 to as much as 100 times higher than what is found in a glyphosate susceptible plant. These extra genes act as a “molecular sponge,” so while the application of glyphosate will block some of the EPSPS, there is still enough there to allow for the plant to continue its metabolic processes and not be killed by the herbicide. The continuation of this trait from the parent plant to its progeny is still uncertain. In the same article that identified gene amplification as a method of resistance, they discussed that “EPSPS copy number in progeny can vary substantially from parental copy number, and EPSPS gene amplification and glyphosate resistance can be transferred to related Amaranthus species through cross-pollination.” The presence of these resistant weeds is certainly daunting, but researchers in the United States and abroad are working very hard to better identify and mitigate the causes and impacts of glyphosate-resistant weeds in cropping systems. Five Years Ago Jan. 22, 2009 Boy Scout Dustin Wieland earned his Eagle Scout rank at a special Court of Honor on Jan. 18. Kurt Hatteberg has been installed as the new pastor at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Amherst and Venango, Neb. Nearly a year after construction began, the remodeling of the Phillips County Communications Center is finished. To commemorate the occasion, the county is holding an open house on Jan. 27 for the public to view the new upgrades and changes. Ten Years Ago Jan. 22, 2004 Phillips County may soon have a new bio-composting site if the county commissioners accept a recommendation from the Board of Adjustments to approve a conditional use permit for Ace Compost, LLC of Yuma. After an initial drop in the cattle market resulting from the discovery of Mad Cow Disease in Washington, the local market seems to be on the rebound as action resumes at livestock auctions in the area. Angie Clayton and Lindsey Neitzel, both 2000 HHS graduates, have returned to Holyoke to student teach. Twenty-Five Years Ago Jan. 26, 1989 Phillips County’s “Emergency Plan of Action for Toxic Spills and Releases” was finalized by the county emergency planning committee at its Jan. 16 meeting. Tim Anderson, vocational agriculture teacher in Holyoke School District Re-1J, resigned from his position last week. He stated that his resignation was necessary for career advancement opportunities for himself and his wife. Forty Years Ago Jan. 24, 1974 The Holyoke Alumni Association is trying something new this year. Instead of holding the annual alumni banquet at Homecoming, usually in October, plans are to hold the 1974 alumni banquet during Memorial weekend. Total assets of the three banks in Phillips County totaled $23,187,469.29 at the close of business on Dec. 31, 1973. The Holyoke Future Business Leaders of America chapter installed the new FBLA chapter at Caliche High School on Jan. 16. Fifty Years Ago Jan. 23, 1964 William Pollard, business manager of the Logan County Hospital at Sterling since 1956, assumed new duties as administrator of the East Phillips County Hospital in Holyoke on Jan. 1. He succeeds Ethel Hagemann, who had served as administrator of the local hospital since 1951. A unique communications setup will be used at a meeting of the Phillips County Education Association Monday evening, Jan. 27 to permit two-way conversation between those present and an educator in Denver. Five stations, each with a microphone and a speaker, will be set up, and those present will be divided into five groups. The board of education of School District Re-1J met Tuesday evening and completed plans for the proposed addition to the Holyoke Grade School. Stock analysts were ecstatic. One told the New York Times global sales—about 170 million people worldwide are infected—could surpass the sales record of $13 billion set by Lipitor, the statin used to treat high cholesterol. The press touted the good news, too, as it customarily does when a new wonder drug hits the market. And as it too often does, it gave short shrift to the price. Sovaldi has one major drawback—its budget-busting price tag. Gilead says it will cost $84,000 for the three-month treatment regime. That’s $1,000 a pill. The debut of sofosbuvir offers a clear example of how expensive technology enters the medical marketplace even before all the evidence comes in that the drug works. In Sovaldi’s case, not all the new drug combinations have been extensively tested. “We may be in for surprises, still,” said Charles Rice, a hepatitis C expert at Rockefeller University in New York City, N.Y. It also raises important questions about who should pay for the drug. Should it be Medicare? Medicaid? Commercial insurers? Or should it be the patients whose insurance policies increasingly come with high amounts of cost-sharing in the form of deductibles and coinsurance? And what con- tribution does Sovaldi make to the overall high price of medical care in the U.S., the highest in the world? Indeed these questions can be asked about any new drug or medical device. But they aren’t. Other countries have agencies that deliberate such trade-offs. We don’t. To raise them conjures up unpleasant images of rationing—patients deprived of life-saving treatments. Asking them also conflicts with a deeply held American belief that the medicine man sits at the right hand of God, and we’re willing to spend anything for cures and treatments even if they are extraordinarily pricey. The entry of Sovaldi also invites serious questioning about why the price of new medical technology doesn’t seem to decrease as prices for other technological advances do—computers, for example. There’s no downward pressure on prices. The patent system for new drugs—protection from competition for seven to 12 years—leaves drug makers in the driver’s seat. Payers pretty much have to cough up what drug makers charge. And federal rules prevent Medicare, one of the largest buyers of drugs, from negotiating with drug makers over prices. Basically, what’s left is negative publicity, and the press doesn’t provide much of that. A recent NPR segment did, however, probing the high price of sofosbuvir. It questioned why the drug maker needed to make its prices so high especially given the large potential market for the drug. One hepatitis expert wanted to know why once Gilead recovered its costs it couldn’t reduce the price. “I don’t want to say it’s unfair, but it does start feeling more exploitative,” she told NPR listeners. A Gilead vice president responded, “That’s very unlikely that we would do that.” Right now they don’t have to. Instead Gilead said it would help patients pay for the drug. You know, one of those patient assistance programs that no doubt helps those who have no money for such expensive treatment. (These programs do means test; that is, help is available only for those with the lowest incomes.) But does that gesture do much to bring down the cost of the drug and thus the country’s health care tab that feeds into the insurance premiums and cost of care we pay out of pocket? No, say many experts. Such programs may serve to keep drug prices high. All this is something to ponder as we move into an election year with health care and its cost promising to dominate the campaign. Extension Corner—By Kindra Plumb 4-H instills life skills I’ve written numerous columns about 4-H teaching life skills to youth. Often, the term “life skills” may be used a little loosely. However, 4-H has done a large amount of research and spent a great deal of time defining just how 4-H participation instills life skills into the 4-H member at various developmental stages of their youth. 4-H defines life skills as “competencies that assist people in functioning well in the environments in which they live,” (Targeting Life Skills in 4-H). Adults who work directly with 4-H youth want to help youth become competent in the life skills they will need in adulthood. Life skills are best learned through practices and different experiences that reinforce the skills. The beauty of 4-H is that kids get to practice and experience these skills, and even make mistakes, in the safe confines of an organization with caring adults to mentor them. Mastery of these skills requires various opportunities to try, make mistakes and try again. 4-H focuses on using your Head, Heart, Hands and Health to the best of your ability. In order to teach life skills, the Head, Heart, Hands and Health model is utilized. Under 4-H’s category of “Head,” life skills that involve thinking and managing are addressed. Examples of these skills are: decision making, problem solving, critical thinking, goal setting, planning and record keeping. “Heart” life skills have to do with relating to and caring for others. Some examples of these skills are: communication, cooperation, conflict resolution, empathy, sharing and concern for others. The Holyoke Enterprise Published every Thurs. at 130 N.

Kids will gain experience with community service/volunteering, leadership, teamwork and selfmotivation. The final category, “Health,” focuses on living and being. Examples of these life skills include: healthy life choices, stress management, personal safety, self esteem, character and self discipline. 4-H youth probably don’t understand the life skills they are experiencing while participating in 4-H. Oftentimes, it may be months or years after a member’s 4-H career ends when they discover the life skills instilled in them through 4-H participation.

Program provides valuable training for farm accidents By Darci Tomky Since agriculture is one of the most dangerous industries in America, local agencies learned valuable training techniques at the Farmedic Program at the Wauneta Fire Hall last weekend. Instructors from AgriSafe in Goodland, Kan., gave classroom training Saturday, Jan. 18 and handson demonstrations Sunday, Jan. 19. The program, hosted by the Wages and Wauneta fire departments, had a total of seven agencies with the addition of fire departments from Holyoke, Amherst and Lamar, Neb., and am- Volunteers from Wages, Holyoke and Lamar, Neb., fire departments are involved in a training scenario at the Wauneta Fire Hall south of Holyoke. They are learning how to handle a situation in which a farmer’s arm was entangled in an auger.

Wages firefighter Damon Struckmeyer said there were 27 people at the training session—some who had been in the program multiple times and others who were learning new information for the first time. “Everybody learned something,” he said. The program covered things like extrication from grain augers, trucks, combines, cars and other machinery. Struckmeyer said agencies don’t always have experience with big farm equipment, which adds a whole different set of challenges. The program is a way they can do training and learn how to handle agriculture situations, he said. (Cont. from Page 1) During the semester, there were three positive THC (marijuana) tests and one positive for ETG (alcohol). Ortner said this involved two students. One student tested positive for THC and ETG. The other tested positive for THC and then on the mandatory retest tested positive again. Additionally, there were two dilute tests. The “dilute” result is determined by checking the creatinine in the urine. A level less than 20 mg is most likely due to increased water or li quid intake. Normal creatinine ranges for females are 37-250 mg, and for males, 40-300 mg. The random drug testing policy says that if the sample is dilute, the student is to be retested on the next testing day. As of Dec. 18, there are 231 students in grades 7-12 enrolled in the random drug testing program, which is required for those participating in extracurricular activities. Seventy-five tests were completed in the Aug. 21-Dec. 18 time frame. Forty-two students were tested once, 12 were tested twice and three were tested three times. Ortner said interest about this program has been expressed from three different school districts. Committee work reviewed Holyoke School District’s shared leadership model includes several focused committees with representation from staff, parents and community to provide input and feedback on a wide variety of topics. At last week’s school board meeting, Miles gave a brief report on the committee progress during the first half of the year. Leadership team has had discussion and ongoing input on the curriculum collaborative project, has done much to update procedures for the gifted and talented identification and has had follow-up conversations about the new teacher evaluation instrument. Standard of excellence team has been planning for the district perception survey and making changes to the format which will be given electronically this year. They heard a pre- measure for the 2014 election that would in effect allow local governments the authority to ban fracking. The constitutional amendment would prevent for-profit companies from acting in a way that would conflict “with the fundamental rights of people, their communities and the natural environment.” Cliff Willmeng of Lafayette, who spearheaded the effort last November to ban fracking in Lafayette, heads the group. In other news at the Capitol, the Senate’s “kill committee” (State, Veterans and Military Affairs) made short work of several Republican-sponsored bills in the past week, including Sen. Greg Brophy’s (RWray) Senate Bill 14-040. Brophy’s bill sought to allow Colorado individuals and small-business owners the opportunity to buy health insurance from companies that offer less expensive plans in other states. The health insurance provider would have to be authorized to conduct business in Colorado and meet actuarial standards issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The bill drew strong opposition from a number of consumer health organizations, who claimed that such a provision would be confusing to consumers. The bill also would put Colorado carriers at risk and at a significant competitive disadvantage, according to Marc Reece of the Colorado Association of Health Plans, the trade association for Colorado health insurance providers. The out-of-state companies would not be fully subject to the state’s consumer protection regulations, he explained. SB 40 died on a party-line 3-2 vote, with the committee’s three Democrats against and the two Republicans in favor. The State Affairs Committee also put to an end SB 35, which would have substantially repealed the 2013 bill that increased the renewable energy standard for rural electric co-ops. But Republicans have several more bills in the works to repeal or tweak SB 13-252. SB 252 was a “terribly written piece of legislation that would be hard to accommodate in the real world of business,” with substantial impacts on consumers and rate-payers, according to SB 35 sponsor Sen. Ted Harvey (R-Highlands Ranch). Harvey noted that Gov. John Hickenlooper had concerns about the bill when he signed it, but instead of rejecting it he appointed a 12-member advisory committee to see if the bill was feasible and if any legislative changes were necessary. That committee, under the Governor’s Energy Office, met during the fall but made no formal recommendations. That was largely due to a decision that any recommendation had to be made by consensus rather than by a majority vote. The committee was made up of representatives from TriState Generation and Transmission, the Intermountain Rural Electric Association, agricultural and business interests, and environmental groups that supported SB 252. The committee did agree that meeting the 20 percent standard by 2020 outlined in the bill was feasible. However, in order to do so, the co-ops and Tri-State would meet the goal only by buying surplus renewable energy credits. According to the committee, that plan would work only short-term and would not meet the spirit of the law, which intended that the goal be met through new renewable energy projects. The hearing on SB 35 drew in many of the same groups that fought over SB 252 last year, except for Tri-State and IREA. “That tells me they’re done fighting and ready to move on,” said committee member Sen. Matt Jones (D-Louisville), one of SB 252’s sponsors. Sen. Irene Aguilar (D-Denver) noted the consensus requirement for the advisory committee and opined that the committee should go back to work with a requirement for a majority vote on recommendations. Several members of that advisory group told this reporter last fall that requiring a consensus doomed the committee’s work to failure. Harvey said that if Aguilar were to run such a bill, he would sponsor it with her. The State Affairs Committee again voted along party lines to kill the bill. Two other bills, both sponsored by House Republicans, would change the SB 252 law. One would reduce the standard from 20 percent to 15 percent. Another would extend the timeline for reaching the 20 percent standard to 2025. A bill to grant eminent domain rights to oil pipeline companies has surfaced at the Capitol. SB 93 is virtually identical to the 2013 legislation that passed the Senate but failed to get out of the House. SB 93 is sponsored by Sen. Cheri Jahn (D-Wheat Ridge) and has been assigned to the Senate Agriculture, Natural Resources & Energy Committee. A hearing date has not yet been announced. Last year’s bill was sponsored by Sen. Mary Hodge (D-Brighton).

Health and fitness program offered Jan. 29 in Akron Need some help with New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get in shape? Would some professional advice on Fracking battle moves to state Capitol By Marianne Goodland The battle over fracking moves to the state Capitol this week when the House Local Government Committee takes up a bill that could punish communities that ban fracking. Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg (RSterling) sponsors House Bill 14-1064, which seeks to take away funds from those communities that ban hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, the process of extracting oil and natural gas by injecting water and chemicals into rock formations. The Local Government Committee will review the bill Jan. 22. HB 1064 will make sure local governments that ban fracking no longer get new revenues from oil and gas, Sonnenberg said this week. “If they aren’t going to help produce oil and gas, they shouldn’t get the severance taxes” from those industries, he explained. Currently, communities that are impacted by energy development, processing or conversion of mineral and mineral fuels get grants and loans from the state’s Local Government Severance Tax Fund. Under the bill, communities that ban fracking would see those funds frozen at the level they received at the time of the decision to ban fracking. Any new revenues would be distributed to communities that already receive severance tax monies but do not ban fracking. Sonnenberg’s bill is yet another salvo in the battle over fracking. In November, four communities voted to ban fracking: Boulder, Lafayette, Fort Collins and Broomfield. Earlier this month, a group called the Colorado Community Rights Network announced its intention to sponsor a ballot sentation from Kim Griffith of Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence and have done a review of student achievement data and district goals. Budget facilities committee members have monitored Phase 2 construction, reviewed information about 2013 and 2014 school finance acts and began discussions leading to district budget priorities. The wellness committee launched a new youth weight room program, shifted discussions on community use of the weight room to the coaches group and are planning a staff wellness program. Ongoing discussion on the website has been conducted by the technology committee who has recommended to stay with the SchoolFusion contract for now. They are also researching 1-to-1 device programs for recommendation this spring. The district accountability advisory committee has reviewed student achievement results and uniform improvement plan designations, is building awareness about statewide graduation requirements and is analyzing the need for a mill levy override. The superintendent’s advisory committee has ongoing discussions on questions from employees. ver Business Journal recently called her “the gatekeeper,” a senator who may “decide key issues” in the 2014 session. In November, the Senate changed from a 20-15 Democratic majority to 18-17 after two senators were recalled, including Senate President John Morse, and another resigned to avoid a recall vote. Jahn told the DBJ that she looks at every bill from the perspective of how it will allow her to do business and how it will impact small business. In the House, SB 93 is sponsored by Rep. Jenise May (DAurora) and Sonnenberg. Two bills that are headed to committee hearings this week deal with the aftermath of the 2013 floods and wildfires. SB 7 was to be heard by the Senate Local Government Committee on Tuesday, Jan. 21. Members of an interim flood disaster study committee, appointed by Hickenlooper, sponsor the bill, which would allow county governments to use general funds for road and bridge projects in the event of a natural disaster. Sonnenberg was appointed to that fall committee. Current law prohibits county governments from using general funds for road and bridge projects. SB 7 would remove that prohibition for a period of four years. Thursday, Jan. 23, the House Local Government Committee is scheduled to take up HB 1007, sponsored by Rep. Millie Hamner (D-Frisco). Hamner’s bill, which came from the interim Wildfire Matters Review Committee, would allow county governments to ban fireworks during the summer and agricultural burning during high fire danger, such as a red flag warning or fire weather watch issued by the National Weather Service. nutrition, exercise and problem-solving the metabolism be beneficial?

Many locals and others with ties to Holyoke got involved in this year’s stock show Jan. 11-26. 2014 Phillips County Fair Queen Josilyn Lutze kicked the festivities off early with the Stock Show parade in downtown Denver Thursday, Jan. 9. Right before setting off in their six-horse-drawn carriage, Lutze and other fair queens walked around the parade route to invite people to the Stock Show. That same day, Lutze met other royalty as they visited the historical Rockmount Ranch Wear, known as the first ones to put snaps on western shirts. A highlight for her was getting a picture with the 2014 Miss Rodeo Colorado and the 2014 Miss Rodeo America. Lutze had the opportunity to return to the Stock Show to volunteer. The royalty met with groups of elementary kids who had the chance to ask questions and take pictures with the queens. Several of the girls also got to help with a pedal tractor race and stick horse race. They showed the kids which way the track went for both races and helped push the pedal tractors during the race. That night, Lutze helped with the Gold Buckle seats at the Professional Bull Riders event, checking tickets and showing people to their seats. “I had a great time representing Phillips County at the National Western Stock Show and look forward to going to many other events,” said Lutze. This sophomore at Holyoke High School is the daughter of Mark and Mendi Lutze of Holyoke. Locals set to compete at Stock Show On the upcoming schedule, the Camblins will be competing in the prospect show Saturday, Jan. 25. Tyler and Kaylee Camblin will each show one steer. Austin and Alex Vieselmeyer have also been busy preparing for and competing with livestock at this year’s Stock Show. Results will be reported in an upcoming Enterprise. Fifteen members of the Holyoke FFA chapter will be attending the Stock Show Thursday, Jan. 23 for FFA day. Adviser Clay Christensen said he’s excited to show the students the different aspects of the agriculture industry.

Chase County’s Emma Ferguson a catch-a-calf grand champion For more than 75 years, the Denver Stock Show’s catch-acalf contest has drawn youths from Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming and Kansas. And this year, the program’s Grand Champion hails from Imperial, Neb. Emma Ferguson, 13, who is the granddaughter of Larry and Jeanette Poos of Holyoke, an eighth grader at Chase County Schools and a Chase County Stockmen 4-H member, was crowned the 2014 grand champion on Sunday, Jan. 12 in the Stock Show’s Stadium Arena. As one of the youngest competitors in the yearly event for 12-18-year-olds, it was quite the win, but it didn’t come without some nerves. While saying she felt comfortable, she admitted to some nerves as she led “O’Boy” into the market class competition that day. “I was nervous to actually go in and show,” she said. But, those nerves, and a lot of work, started much sooner than this year’s Jan. 12 catcha-calf finale. A year ago, she was in the ring with a lot of other anxious youths attempting to “catch a calf ” at the Stock Show, and was one of the lucky 40 youngsters throughout the week to do so. In her group, about 18 youths vied for the eight calves in the ring at that time. She earned the chance last year to “catch a calf ” after completing an application, that later was picked in a random drawing with 39 others to take part. She returned to Denver in May 2013 with her parents, Mark and Julie Ferguson of Imperial, to pick up her calf. That began eight months of feeding and caring for the animal, keeping records and communicating with her sponsor, John Brown of Wilcoxson & Brown in Oberlin, Kan., a far ming/ranching operation. During the ensuing eight months, she kept in touch monthly with her sponsor, which is one of the require- Congratulations Emma Ferguson ments of the competition, and is worth 40 points in the tallying for grand champion. The most important aspect, point-wise, of the catch-a-calf competition is the record book, with a maximum of 50 points awarded. Expenses, feed costs, supplies and O’Boy’s weekly weight gain were among the records included in Emma’s multi-paged entry. Her showmanship performance last week was worth a maximum of 20 points, O’Boy’s market class placing and his production performance (cost of gain, etc.) each could also net a maximum of 10 points. O’Boy, an Angus-Hereford cross, finished second in his market class, while Emma placed second in junior showmanship. Contest rules require that the animal finish in the top four of his market division to compete for overall Grand Champion honors, no matter what the youth’s point totals are. O’Boy’s final weight was 1,325 pounds, gaining 685 pounds from the 640 pounds he weighed when they picked him up last May. Another big category, worth as much as 25 points, was the interview process Jan. 11 with a panel of three judges. It also included a two-minute speech on what she learned and how she will promote the beef industry. Of the 155 maximum catcha-calf points, Ferguson’s total was 139.88 points, finishing six points ahead of reserve champion Riley Eisenhauer of Farnam, Neb. Emma will have to say goodbye to O’Boy later this week when he’ll sell at the Stock Show’s junior livestock sale on Friday. Overmiller family wins distinguished Triple Crown The American Gelbvieh Association sponsored the National Gelbvieh and Balancers Show at the Stock Show Jan. 13. Judge Brandon Callis of Yukon, Okla., evaluated the cattle, and the Overmillers of Smith Center, Kan., took away several awards. Two former Holyoke girls are involved in the Overmiller Gelbvieh and Red Angus operation. Risa (Rumold) Overmiller, the daughter of Erick Rumold and Benita Bock, is married to Kelly Overmiller, and Brittany (Young) Overmiller, the daughter of Steve and Kim Young, is married to Kelly’s brother, Brent Overmiller. The two brothers’ parents, Roger and Norma; their two older sisters and their families; and some of Risa and Brittany’s families were all in Denver for the Stock Show with the Overmillers’ six bulls. SAS Ace of Spades 082A, shown by Kelly and Brent’s nephew Kyle Sasse, found its way to second place in the Class 40 Balancer bulls. Class 49 Balancer bulls saw Over miller Gelbvieh with 3G EZ Money 209Z at the top of the class in first place. EZ Money was then named junior bull division champion. Judge Callis then selected EZ Money as the reserve grand champion bull of the Balancer show. The grand finale show was the purebred Gelbvieh bulls. Entering the ring in Class 53 bulls, Overmiller Gelbvieh finished in first place with 3G Archimedes 353A. Archimedes was then selected spring bull calf division champion. Overmiller Gelbvieh entered the ring in Class 55 bulls with OGSG Army Man 514A, who was selected class champion. Class 57 saw Overmillers again with 3G Aristotle 320A, who was selected first place in this class. When the class champions and reserve champions entered the ring in the winter bull calf division, Callis then selected Overmillers’ entry 3G Aristotle 320A as division champion and Overmillers’ other entry OGSG Army Man 514A as reserve division champion. The last class the Overmiller family was represented in was Class 63 bulls. First place went to Overmiller’s entry 3G Zipline 266Z.

Action that evening will begin with junior high matmen at 5 p.m., followed by the high school dual at 6 p.m. under the spotlight. Brown coached for five seasons of wrestling in Holyoke. He coached junior high his first year, both JH and HS the next three years and high school only the last year. His last season was in 1997-98 when Tyler Chappell won Holyoke’s first state championship since 1957. A couple of weeks after that state tournament, Brown was on his way to Yuma to watch the Holyoke JH wrestlers when he was killed in a country road auto accident March 12, 1998, at the age of 28. Stroh was a two-time state placer at 98 lbs. for HHS in the early 1980s. He was assisting his brother, Duane, in coaching the HHS wrestling program when he was killed in a farm accident Dec. 5, 2006. It occurred one week before he turned 43. Stroh’s nephew, Chad, who ended up a three-time state champion, was just a freshman when his uncle died. Four days after Larry’s death, the Dragons went ahead to host their annual tournament, labeling it the Larry Stroh Memorial Torn a d o To u r n a m e n t . T h at year, nephew Chad earned outstanding wrestler honors. Wrestling families tend to become one big family through their time spent at all-day tournaments. Fond memories of both Brown and Stroh are recalled often by the wrestling community, and the Thursday night memorial dual is one way of honoring their service. Dragons battle to a 3-point dual loss By Brenda Johnson Brandt Holyoke came up on the short end of a 33-30 wrestling dual when the Dragons hosted Merino under the spotlight Thursday, Jan. 16. Dylon Lousberg at 132 lbs., Luke Stewart at 160 and Fernando Rojo at 195 all won their matches for HHS, and all three won by pins. Issac Brandt led throughout his 126-lb. match that ended in a controversial 4-5 loss. Nick Ortner was back on the mats for the Dragons from the injured list. He and Javy Rojo both suffered two-point losses on the night. Holyoke’s Eric Rojo and Marques Harvey won by forfeit as Merino didn’t have wrestlers in their weight divisions.

Skyline won the competition with 134 points, followed by Holyoke with 85 and Valley with 83. Coach Adria Colver said the Holyoke team goes into some meets behind by 6-15 points because there’s no diver on the team. But the girls make up for it and swim well. She emphasized they can’t do it without the entire team. There are the workhorses who get it done every week. And there are the newcomers who are improving each week and definitely impact the team, as well. The meet moves the Dragon swimmers close to the end of their season. They swam in a triangular with Eaton and Windsor at Eaton Tuesday, Jan. 21. Colver received word early this week that the girls will be swimming at Myers Pool in Arvada for the conference meet Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7 and 8. It is a 10-lane pool, while most others are eight lanes. Holyoke will not receive any points, but if any of the HHS swimmers rank in the top 16 in prelims, they will be able to swim in one of the outside lanes the next day in finals, along with 16 other girls. At Valley last week, Dani Brandt finished first in the 100-yd. backstroke and third in the 100-yd. butterfly, Jayden Durbin grabbed two seconds in the 200-yd. individual medley and the 500-yd. freestyle, and Emily Krogmeier took second in the 100-yd. freestyle and third in the 200-yd. freestyle.

Page 8—The Holyoke Enterprise, Holyoke, Colo. 80734, Thurs., Jan. 23, 2014 Lady Dragons lose to Merino, defeat Wray By Kyle Arnoldy Lady Dragon basketball players bounced back from a close loss at home to Merino Friday, Jan. 17 by beating Wray by double-digits on the road Saturday, Jan. 18. Holyoke girls remain even at 5-5 on the season after splitting last week’s games. “This week was truly a tale of two teams. How could we play so poorly on Friday night and then come out on Saturday and play so well?” coach Arlan Scholl asked. “I guess it proves that any team can struggle and have an off night.” Holyoke 41, Merino 44 For the first matchup counting toward league seeding come the postseason, Holyoke fell by just three points to Merino Friday night. HHS at times struggled with the Merino press, leading to 31 total turnovers for the Lady Dragons on the night. “We could not seem to negotiate their press and that showed by us starting out with eight turnovers on our first 10 possessions of the game,” Scholl said. “It is pretty difficult to win under those conditions.” After falling behind 9-2 in the opening minutes, Holyoke closed out the final 90 seconds of the first quarter with a fivepoint run to cut the Merino lead to 15-11. With Holyoke in a zone defense, Merino was able to get open looks from close to the hoop through penetrating the paint and crisp interior ball movement. Megan Vieselmeyer led the way for another strong finish to a period, dropping in a pair of buckets in the final minute as each team scored 10 points in the second quarter. The two teams remained evenly paced throughout the second half, trading baskets throughout the third quarter. With Merino outscoring the Lady Dragons 12-11 in the third period, Holyoke entered the final eight minutes trailing 3237. HHS forced turnovers to pull within two points with close to 2:30 left in the match, but was unable to complete the comeback as shots just wouldn’t fall. The Lady Dragons missed a few open looks in the lane that would have tied the two teams late in the match. Neither team had success in the closing two minutes, with Holyoke scoring just one point on one of five from the free-throw line. Merino failed to put the game out of reach, converting on just two of six attempts at the line in the same timespan. Despite the offensive woes in the closing minutes, Holyoke still had a shot on the final possession of the game with seven seconds remaining. A potentially game-tying 3-pointer bounced off the front of the rim at the buzzer, giving the Lady Rams the 44-41 victory. Maddie King finished with her fourth straight doubledouble by scoring 12 points and picking up 11 rebounds. Vieselmeyer also scored 12 points in the match. Zuri Lopez led the team with seven assists and eight steals on the night.

Wray made a little run to close out the half, but Holyoke maintained a 32-24 lead at the break. Aggressive play was the key to success for the Holyoke team in the third quarter as the Wray squad was forced to foul HHS girls to slow them down. The Lady Dragons made seven trips to the line, successfully sinking five of 11 attempts to take a 47-36 lead heading into the fourth quarter. HHS stayed consistent in the fourth period, scoring 15 points in a quarter for the third time in the game. Wray trailed by double-digits for most of the second half as they were defeated by the Holyoke girls 49-62.

With the wins, HHS improves to 7-3 for the season. Holyoke 81, Merino 79 It truly was a game of runs Friday night as the Dragon basketball team hosted the Merino Rams. Holyoke earned a 1-0 conference record with the win, outlasting Merino 81-79 Holyoke started the game hot, stunning Merino with a 12-0 spree out of the gate. Merino responded with a 19-6 run to take the lead near the halfway point of the first quarter. Tito Fierro came up big in the period, scoring 15 points as the two teams ended the first knotted at 23. “I felt like they were really ready to play,” coach Scott Dille said of his team. “I am proud of how they came out focused and got out to a 12-0 start.” The fast-paced play continued in the second quarter as each team exploited shot opportunities early in possessions. Zach Roll led the Dragons with seven points in the quarter as HHS outscored Merino 21-14 for a 44-37 advantage at half. Fierro once again handled scoring duties for the Dragons to begin the second half, scoring eight of Holyoke’s first 12 points. Logan Tharp scored eight of the final 10 points for HHS as the Dragons boasted a 66-58 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Merino began to heat up from deep four minutes into the third quarter, hitting seven 3s in the second half to stay within striking distance of the Dragons. An offensive surge to open the fourth for Merino had the two teams tied for the first time since early in the second quarter. Holyoke took control of the lead with under three minutes remaining in the game and never let up. An open shot from close and a good look at a game-winning 3 rattled off the rim for Merino as HHS kept the scrappy Rams at bay for the 81-79 victory. Fierro finished with 31 points, Tharp added 17 and Trevor Dalton 12 in the highscoring game. Dille noted that with a tough league this year, any conference win is huge.

Dille noted that Saturday’s game with Wray was the polar opposite of the style of Friday’s game. While Merino played man and looked to get quick shots Friday night, Wray played a zone defense and looked to slow the game down. Once again, HHS had a lot of success at the offensive end of the court, scoring with relative ease from the getgo. At the conclusion of the first quarter, Holyoke led the home team 2213. Holyoke’s defense suffocated the Wray team in the second quarter, allowing just two points on free throws while the Dragon offense poured in 25 points for a 47-15 halftime lead. Scoring simmered a bit in the second half, but Holyoke never gave up control of the game. After finishing out the third quarter with a 63-29 lead, Holyoke began to rotate in more players to pick up some varsity experience. Dille praised the HHS team for their defense in the second half, pointing out that their aggressive play led to transition and more opportunities on the offensive end of the court. HHS extended their winning streak to six with the 76-39 win. In the victory, 12 different Dragons made contributions to the scoring column. Dalton did a great job attacking the basket all night to pick up 17 points and Fierro and Tharp each ended the night with 13 points.

Bush, the final pieces of the light bulb provisions went into effect at the beginning of January. With the changes, shoppers can expect a bit of stickershock as prices for bulbs have gotten considerably more expensive. The new, more expensive bulbs are supposed to help reduce the price of electricity bills, however. According to the Department of Energy, replacing 15 traditional incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient light bulbs will save about $50 yearly in energy costs. Energy-efficient light bulbs include compact fluorescent lamps and light emitting diodes. Typically, CFLs and LEDs use about 25-80 percent less energy and can last 3-25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Contrary to popular belief, the incandescent light bulb is not dead. While the manufacturing of the 40 and 60-watt incandescent light bulbs will cease, other incandescent bulbs are still options. The new mandates did not ban incandescent light bulbs, but called for them to be roughly 25 percent more efficient. New 43-watt incandescent bulbs can generate the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent does. These 43-watt bulbs are known as halogen incandescent bulbs. Based on two hours of usage per day at an electricity rate of 11 cents per kilowatt-hour, the Department of Energy estimates that a 60-watt incandescent bulb has an annual energy cost of $4.80 and a life of 1,000 hours. The 43-watt energy-saving incandescent bulb uses 25 percent less energy, has an annual cost of $3.50 and a lifespan of 1,000-3,000 hours. A 15-watt CFL uses roughly 75 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, Alexa Marie Lock and Kevin Louis Keathley were married in an intimate family ceremony on June 1, 2013, at James Arthur Vineyards in Raymond, Neb. The bride is the daughter of Ron and Cindy Lock of Holyoke. She is the granddaughter of Evelyn Lock of Holyoke. The groom is the son of Jim and Kathy Keathley of Scranton, Ark. He is the grandson of Gilbert Weisenfels of Scranton. The bride was escorted by her father to the music “Marry You.” She wore a champaign strapless fitted gown. The corseted bodice had a sweetheart neckline accented in beads and crystals. The chiffon A-line skirt had matching bead and crystal accents at the hem and bustled train. She carried a blue and champaign button bouquet made by special friend Brittney Ferguson. Vocal music was provided by family members Gentry Lock, Charity Lock and Novi Lock. They sang “The Day Before You” a cappella. Pastor Gordon Penfold of the First Baptist Church in Holyoke officiated over the outdoor, sunny morning ceremony. The couple exchanged vows near a clear running stream with the vineyards in the background. Near the end of the ceremony, the couple poured soil into a glass decanter mixed from Colorado and Arkansas to symbolize their unity. Maid of honor was Jes-c Brandt, childhood friend. Bridesmaid was Rachel Stratton, college friend. Each wore a navy knee-length V-neck empire waist summer dress. Each carried a similar smaller version of the bride’s button bouquet. The groom wore a dark gray tuxedo with a navy vest and tie. His boutonniere was a smaller version of blue and champaign buttons. The best man was Gary Weisenfels, uncle of the groom.

A 12-watt LED bulb uses 75-80 percent less energy than traditional bulbs, has an annual energy cost of $1 and a life expectancy of 25,000 hours. Production of 100-watt incandescent bulbs was halted in 2012 and 75-watt incandescent bulb production stopped in 2013. While 40- and 60-watt incandescent bulbs are no longer in production, retailers are still allowed to sell them until they are out of stock.

Mercy Meals is currently recruiting volunteers to help package meals during the “Feed the Philippines” event. “This is a very ambitious goal, and we are looking forward to seeing the community rise to the challenge,” Wellman expressed. “Mercy Meals is an organization that is dedicated to providing life-sustaining subsistence meals to hungry and starving people around the world,” explained Michael Widhalm with Orphan Grain Train. “If you are able to raise a fork to your mouth, you can pack a meal,” Wellman said. Organizers said they will accommodate volunteers of all ages. Stools can be provided for those who have difficulty standing for a two-hour shift. Wellman added young and strong teenagers are also need- Mercy Meals of Southwest Nebraska needs to fill 540 volunteer slots at “Feed the Philippines” in Imperial, Neb., Feb. 21-23. Volunteers will work to pack 160,000 meals over the three-day event.

The event will include a total of 10 two-hour shifts where groups or individual volunteers can package meals. A total of 540 volunteers are needed, roughly 50 volunteers each shift. At the end of the weekend, volunteers will have packed 160,000 meals for starving children and families impacted by the typhoon that hit the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013. According to the LCMS website, “The storm displaced 4 million people, killed nearly 6,000 and destroyed everything in its path. Emergency food provisions and rebuilding homes and churches on the island of Leyte are part of the ongoing relief efforts by the LCMS and the Lutheran Church in the Philippines.” The meals—which consist of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, chicken flavored vitamin and mineral powder—are designed to be gentle on the digestive system of individu- als who may be malnourished or starving. These raw food products are packaged together in sealed plastic pouches. Recipients can eat the food after it has been boiled for 20 minutes. Widhalm noted the cooking process has the added benefit of making cooking water sanitary. He said this is a benefit because in many places where Mercy Meals are shipped there is no access to clean water for cooking or drinking. “Feed the Philippines” has a goal of packaging one million meals total. In addition to the Imperial event, “Feed the Philippines” events will be completed in Sioux City, Iowa, as well as Lincoln, Hastings, Norfolk and Wauneta in Nebraska. The target completion date for packaging all 1 million meals is April 30. The events were made possible by a grant from LCMS to purchase the raw food supplies needed for the packing event. Transportation and distribution of the packaged meals is provided by Orphan Grain Train at no charge. Mercy Meals has ordered the raw food products to package the meals at the Imperial packing event, which will be delivered to the Zion Lutheran Evangelical Church in Imperial on Feb. 21. The Orphan Grain Train truck will stay on site to get the meals started on their voyage to the Philippines.
