Amana First Responders’
seek volunteers
The Amana First Responders’ are currently
looking for volunteers in the community that
are interested in helping others. Over the recent
years, the Amana First Responders have lost a
tremendous amount of volunteers, which has resulted in a great stress load for the current team.
In fact, the year of 2014 brought a record low response rate of 37%!
Being a first responder team, our goal is to
maintain the quality and efficiency of basic life
support until a responding ambulance arrives on
scene. Opportunities for getting a certification
paid for are available for those who are interested! If you feel like you are an individual who
would like to help make a difference in improving our response rate, please contact Josh Bern
at 319-530-9393.
The Amana First Responders need you…the
Community needs you!

Amana’s First Responders Need Volunteers
The Amana First Responders are looking for a
few good men and women to serve others.
Using Facebook to help get the word out, the
Amana First Responders posted a plea for volunteers. The posting reports that the group has lost
volunteers in recent years and that has resulted
in a “great stress load for the current team” as
well as a diminished response rate. The Amana
First Responders want to improve the quality
and efficiency of their vitally important service,
so the team is seeking new volunteers to train.
In 2014 the group received 95 pages from Iowa
County 911 and were able to respond to less than
40 of these calls. The lower response rate is due
to a combination of factors including proximity
and availability of volunteers at the time of a call,
as well as the number of responders on the team.
At one point the Amana First Responders had
as many as 15 members, today the groups stands
at 7 volunteers, reports Josh Bern, director of the
Amana First Responders. “Some of our responders don’t work in Amana so they aren’t available
during their work hours. Others work different
shifts and aren’t available at certain times. Having more trained volunteers is very important,”
he said.
When Bern joined the group in 2013 there were
10 involved, but recent retirements have diminished that number. “Some of our members had
been First Responders for over 20 years. They’ve
served well for years and want to step back . . .
But we have to get the word out. We want to get
the younger generation of the Amanas involved
so we are reaching out. . . Amana isn’t the only
community in Iowa facing this. It’s all across
Iowa. Lots of communities need more volunteer
responders.”
The Amana First Responders are trained and
under the direction of Iowa County Emergency
Services. First Responders are either certified
EMTs (emergency medical technicians) or EMRs
(emergency medical responders.) EMTs receive
120 hours of training, while EMRs receive 40 to
60 hours of training. The cost of that training may
be a reason why volunteers hesitate, but Bern
reports that the Iowa County EMS has funding
available to pay the cost of training classes. “We
can get you trained,” he added.
Once trained and certified being an EMR or
EMS may open doors career-wise or make you a
better candidate for jobs, so potential volunteers
should weigh the benefits. First Responders are
not paid.
“This is a volunteer position but there are real
benefits in terms of what you are doing for your
community and the service you are providing,”
Bern said.
To learn more contact Bern at 319-530-9393.

during the day, be part of the action at this indoor mega-sale.
While last year Tom Johnson and Meg Merckens announced their retirement from producing a
full season of shows at the theatre and performing arts center they opened in the former Barn
Restaurant seven years ago, the couple is planning to continue to do special projects and workshops in the coming year, as well as presenting
musical concerts and other events at the center.
The building is also available for rent for graduation parties, receptions and other special events.
This year they hope to increase the already
popular Garage Sale-AMANia. “Each year it just
gets better and better,” said Meg Merckens. They
hope to break the 500 people through the door
mark this year. The admission at the door and
the table rent benefit ITAC’s efforts to support
the performing arts in the Colonies.

Feathers in the wind
Awhile back someone called me sobbing that
he/she did not have any friends. I guess I was
not very kind because I thought, “if you have no
friends, then who am I?”
The world spun around a few times and I woke
up one morning telling my beloved husband I
also did not have any friends. I looked at him and
saw the love he always has in his for me, even
when I embarrass him, and realized what a fool
I had been.
A few months ago one of my dearest friends
died. As she lay there it finally made sense to me.
She had a loving husband who had been there
through all kinds of illnesses, financial and family problems and was looking at her with such
love in his eyes that we both wept.
We decided that the love we had, here on earth,
was often shown us via people, animals, sunsets,
all sorts of beauty in nature, but none could compare to the love God shows us.
Today I was doing my Bible study and it hit
me that I have just not been paying attention. I
have been making an idol of myself...how I appear, speak, write, whatever and do not realize
that in actuality I am breaking that commandment about not having any idols.
ME an IDOL! Of course, why I had I not been
thinking this all along? I even have the nerve to
sing and prey to God, but in the back of my mind
I am always thinking to myself... if only this pain
would go away, if only people would like me, if
only I was a super model, if only...
Years ago there was a slogan that said, “God
does not make junk.” Hmm! If that is true (which
we all know it is) then why do others and I always want more? Is it because we think only of
ourselves too much?
I will never be perfect, but I can try and ask
God to help me say the right things to people instead of platitudes. Though I don’t have worldly
wealth, I do have the wealth of knowing that
there are people who love me and especially that
I have a man I prayed for who walks with me
though all our problems and still holds my hand
even when it is wet with the sweat of fear.
Most of all I have a REAL FRIEND.
Remember that song we sang in Sunday
School, “What a friend we have in Jesus, All our
sins and grieves to bear.”
Remember also that story about how Jesus and
the man who walked in the sand? When the man
looked back he would sometimes see two sets of
footprints and then only one set. He asked Jesus
what happen and Jesus replied, “I was carrying
you then.”
Perhaps instead of looking for “earthly” friends
I should look toward the Creator who will walk
with me through all the problems I have faced
and will face. Maybe I should just wise up.

Note from the print shop
We are progressing with our efforts to repair
the Print Shop’s Southeastern wall. The entire
inner course of the wall, which was collapsing because of the rotted wood built into the brick that
held the wainscoting in place, has been removed
from the floor up to the windows, from the East
corner to the door. Rebuilding that wall is next. When weather permits, work will move outside. The side walk will be removed and the foundation exposed for repair and waterproofing. The
upper portion of the South wall will be exposed to
inspect for damage inside the building.
Hopefully, we won’t find much damage and our
efforts will be focused on preventative measures
instead of critical repairs.
In the future (as soon as one of the kids downloads the camera) we will be posting photos of the
work on the website.

ISU extension news
Iowa Learning Farms, along with the Iowa
Cover Crop Working Group and Washington
County Farm Bureau, will host a field day
Wednesday, March 25, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the
Steve and Dennis Berger farm, rural Wellman.
Speaking at the field day is host farmer Steve
Berger, who will talk about his experiences using cereal rye cover crop with his no-till system. Also speaking are Iowa State University
Extension and Outreach agricultural engineers
Mark Hanna and Greg Brenneman. Hanna will
review equipment needs for using cover crops
with no-till. Brenneman will discuss manure
management for this system. Following the
speakers, attendees can view the equipment on
display, enjoy a complimentary meal, and go to
the fields to see the cover crops, weather permitting.
The field day will be at the machine shed on
the Bergers’ farm: 1267 Elm Ave., rural Wellman. From Wellman, take Highway 22 west for
one mile, turn north onto 128th Place. Follow
for a quarter-mile and turn north onto Elm Ave.
The machine shed will be immediately on the
right side of the road.
The field day is free and open to the public,
but an RSVP is requested. Contact Iowa Learning Farms to reserve a place for the meal: phone
515-294-8912, or email: [email protected]
As part of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy, cover crops added to a corn-soybean rotation reduces soil erosion, reduces nitrogen and
phosphorus loads, and increases soil organic
matter. Research has shown that cover crops
can reduce nitrogen and phosphorus losses by
approximately 30 percent. These crops, used in
combination with other best management practices, will reduce point and nonpoint source pollution significantly in Iowa waters and downstream.

Farms, visit the website: http://www.extension.
