HHS musical sets sail this week
The Humboldt High
School Drama and Music
Departments proudly pres-
ent the Rodgers and Ham-
merstein Broadway musical
“South Pacific” this Thurs-
day, Friday and Saturday,
Nov. 1, 2, and 3, in the R.
W. Carlson auditorium.
“South Pacific” is a Rodgers
and Hammerstein classic,
which won a Pulitzer Prize
for Best Drama, as well as
10 Tonys when it debuted in
1949. Despite the passage of
60-plus years, it retains its
significance today, address-
ing themes of race, bigotry
and identity. Along with the
serious themes, many light-
hearted moments fill the
stage.
The Humboldt cast is led
by Jen Bentz as the hopeless-
ly romantic Nellie Forbush,
and Jake Helvick as French
planter Emile De Beque
singing the Richard Rodgers
classics “I’m Gonna Wash
That Man Right Outta My
Hair,” and “Some Enchanted
Evening.” James Sobkoweak
plays Lt. Joe Cable who falls
in love with islander, Liat
(Andra Niles), and delivers
the central message of the
show in “You’ve Got To Be
Carefully Taught.” Miranda
Pederson adds comic relief
with the character Bloody
Mary who tries to sell sou-
venirs to the sailors as well
as pair her daughter with
“saxy” Lt. Cable.
Most fun of all is watch-
ing the ensemble of sail-
ors and nurses, led by Sam
George as Luther Billis,
head of the base’s laundry
operation. Sam leads the
talented sailors in a rousing
version of “There Is Nothin’
Like A Dame,” and wiggles
around in a grass skirt and
coconut bra during “Honey
Bun.” The nurses are very
busy keeping track of Nel-
ly’s emotions in “I’m Gonna
Wash,” and “I’m In Love
With A Wonderful Guy.”
They also put on an unfor-
gettable “Thanksgiving Fol-
lies” show for the sailors of
the base.
Tickets for the show are
$6 adults and $3 students,
and are available in the high
school office. The curtain
will rise at 7:30 each eve-
ning. Don’t miss this grand
musical performance.
Supervisors
approve funds
for Ottosen
By Kent Thompson
Worried about setting
a precedent, the Humboldt
County Board of Supervisors
begrudgingly approved a pay-
ment of $1,000 to the city of
Ottosen for street repair on
Monday.
The payment are funds the
city contends is owed them,
because it believes the work
should have been done by the
county in the first place.
Ottosen Mayor Richard
Kinseth and Council member
Jason Fowler were at Mon-
day’s meeting, and explained
an issue with the intersection
with County Road C-20, the
main east/west thoroughfare
through town, and 2nd Street.
The city said there was 10
feet of the approach from 2nd
Street to C-20 that was not fin-
ished, leaving a large drop off.
According to county re-
cords, C-20 was resurfaced
through Ottosen in 2004. The
work included milling off four
inches of surface, replacing
with a four-inch cold and place
and three-inch asphalt overlay.
Kinseth said County Engi-
neer Paul Jacobson told them
that the approach was not
finished because 2nd Street
was not up to grade. Kinseth
explained that the town coun-
cil had received several com-
plaints from citizens about
the road and contracted with
Blacktop Service Company of
Humboldt to make the street
repairs and lay 10 feet of as-
phalt to connect C-20 and 2nd
Street. In a letter to the super-
visors, the council asked for
$1,200 to pay for the repairs
for road work that was com-
pleted that it believed should
have been the county’s respon-
sibility.
“Even in towns under 500
population, we (the county)
run the paving through the
town corporate limits with a
20-22-feet overlay with a five
foot fill on the side streets
and alleys,” Jacobson told the
board.
Jacobson said the issue is
not unique to Ottosen, as there
are a number of city streets in
smaller towns that are not up
to grade. “Look at K Road in
Livermore. Thor also had an

Planting a new seed: Humboldt business expands
There’s a new building
rapidly going up on High-
way 3 East.
It’s TRI County Agron-
omy, a Pioneer seed dealer-
ship owned by Joe Olson
and Dan Thompson. They
are constructing a 180’ by
60’ building, along with a
42’ by 36’ office area on the
south side of Highway 3 just
between John Deere and
John’s Ag Service.
The new building will
allow them to hold all their
seed and crop protection
products before spring. With
18’ high sidewalls, they’ll
be able to stack the Pioneer
Pro Boxes three high in the
warehouse.
“It was an opportunity
to increase our capacity and
take delivery of all our ship-
ments whenever they are
ready. Ultimately it makes
us a more reliable supplier
for our customers,” Olson
said.
With the purchase of the
lot, dirt work started in Au-
gust. They hope to fully be
in the new building by mid-
November and are planning
an Open House in Decem-
ber.
Both Olson and Thomp-
son agree this is an excit-
ing opportunity for them to
increase their services and
Pioneer footprint in the area.
Plans call for the instal-
lation of five bulk soybean

pace and they hope to be operating out of the new location by the middle of November. Submitted photo.

Humboldt County REC
earns million hour award
By Kent Thompson
In 1980, Ronald Reagan was energizing the electorate, Ab-
scam was uncovering public bribery, Pac-Man was gobbling
dots and ghosts and former Beatle John Lennon was assassi-
nated.
It was also the year that Humboldt County REC began a
streak that few organizations can equal, that is still going strong,
more than 32 years since it began.
On April 10, 1980, Humboldt County REC began day one of
not having a lost time accident.
Now, over one million employee work hours later, the elec-
tric cooperative celebrated with a recognition dinner Oct. 23,
honoring present and past employees for their accomplish-
ments.
The streak has enduring during the tenure of three general
managers, several board presidents and numerous employee
safety directors.
Henry Lenning was the general manager in 1980, succeeded
by Dennis Fuller in 1984, and Steve Long in 2000. Long’s ten-
ure will be coming to a close at the end of this year, as Hum-
boldt County Rural Electric Cooperative will cease operations
after 76 years, merging with Midland Power Cooperative of Jef-
ferson.
Through it all, one constant has been an emphasis on safety,
REC present and past officials, said at the celebration.
Long said the cooperative has built a culture of safety over
the years.
“The key elements are supervision, education and training,
along with work rules and proper equipment,” the general man-
ager said.
“A lot of what we do today was started back in 1980. We’re
still concerned about reliability, quality of service, commitment
to the members and commitment to safety.
“This cooperative has always had the attitude that safety is
everyone’s business and everyone has taken on that responsibil-
ity,” Long said.
Safety milestone is rare accomplishment

tric Insurance Exchange (left) presented Humboldt County REC with a unique one
million hour award last week at Rustix. To the right of Knutson are Luke Falke,
account executive with Federated; Humboldt County REC Board President Kevin
Rasmussen, current General Manager Steve Long and former General Manager
Dennis Fuller. The award signifies more than one million hours without a lost time
accident. The award has been achieved under Long’s leadership the past 12 years,
16 years under Fuller before that, and the first four years under Henry Lenning.

Humboldt County Rural Electric Cooperative employees, former employees and
spouses were on hand Oct. 23, for a special recognition dinner to celebrate more than
one million hours without a lost time accident. Federated Rural Electric Insurance
Exchange presented the REC with a plaque recognizing the milestone, beginning on
April 10, 1980, and continuing to the present day. Pictured from left to right are:
Merlin Graaf, a 38-year REC employee and former safety director; Todd Leemkuil,
current REC safety director; Operations Supervisor Doug Bueltel and Federated’s
Safety and Loss Prevention consultant Chad Knutson. Humboldt Independent pho-
to.
“Safety is something that
we emphasize every day. The
guys use their personal pro-
tective equipment, and so it’s
ingrained. It’s become a nor-
mal thing,” said Operations
Supervisor Doug Bueltel, who
along with his wife, Susan,
and Long, are the only current
Humboldt REC employees
who were part of the crew in
1980.
A rare occasion
Just how unique is one mil-
lion hours without a lost time
accident?
Pretty unique, according
to Chad Knutson, a safety
and loss prevention consultant
with Federated Rural Electric
Insurance Exchange.
His company insures about
760 electric cooperatives
throughout the nation. “We
don’t do worker’s compensa-
tion insurance for all of them,
but there are over 600 that are
eligible for the million hours
award. In the last 10 years we
have given out 16 of these na-
tionally, so it’s a pretty select
group,” Knutson said.
The award is based on self-
reporting by the cooperative
that no accident has caused a
day of lost time for a specified
period of time.
“I’ve been with Federated
for nine years and I cover 105
cooperatives in three states
(Iowa, Minnesota and Wiscon-
sin,) and this is only the third
one of these I have presented.
(Sac County REC received
a 1,000,000 hour award in
2006.)”
Knutson knows about safe-
ty and the hazards of working
with electricity. He worked
for the Iowa Lakes Electric
Cooperative in Estherville for
12 years as an engineer, before
taking the safety consultant
position with Federated. Iowa
Lakes Co-op earned the one
million hour award in 1994.
“Typically the well trained
and well qualified lineman is
aware of the hazards around
him. If they follow procedures
and use the proper equipment
to protect themselves they can
get through every single day
without injuries. But there are
those days when not every-
thing goes as you expect it to
and to be able to avoid those
for over 30 years…is quite an
achievement.
“Federated, along with the
National Rural Electric Coop-
erative Association, sponsor
the Rural Electric Safety Ac-
creditation (recently changed
to Achievement) program.
Humboldt has participated in
that program for many years.
“It’s not a get out of jail
free card, as we have many co-
operatives who participate in
the program and have loss time
accidents, but if you follow the
protocol within that program
and have some good fortune,
it can be done, and Humboldt
County REC and its employ-
ees are a testament to that,” he
said.
Humboldt County REC
recently received a three-year
achievement certificate for not
having a lost time accident,
something it has achieved 10
times during the course of its
one million hour milestone.
Only 11 of the 37 electrical
cooperatives in the state cur-
rently have this designation.
“Not every accident is
something that happens on a
power pole. It can be a vehi-
cle along the side of the road,
a traffic accident caused by
another driver, a weather or
storm-related injury, there are
plenty of ways to get hurt out
there and get hurt seriously,”
Knutson said.
“It’s very difficult to
achieve,” said Luke Falke, an
account executive with Feder-
ated.
“The cooperative is sharing
resources with other co-ops.
There are snow and ice storms
that can knock you out of pow-
er for a week, and these guys
are working around the clock
to get power restored, so yes,
it’s very special.”
3.8 million miles
The 1,000,173.5 hours
through the end of Septem-
ber is a remarkable milestone,
Long said.
“This is remarkable when
you consider the type of work,
the variety of equipment and
the extreme weather the crews
have worked in.
“We’ve had skirmishes
(storms where people have
been without power for one or
two days). One of the major
ones I remember was the ice
storm on Halloween 1991. I
think it started on a Friday and
we had everyone back on by
Tuesday.
“Another thing is the
crew’s driving record. Our
crews have traveled to New
Orleans, they’ve been to Il-
linois, Mississippi, Arkansas,
South Dakota and throughout
Iowa. There was not a major
accident or injury during their
time (over 32 years), in which
the crew’s drove 3.8 million
miles!”
Along with safety empha-
sis, expert training and top
of the line equipment, there
is also some good fortune in-
volved.
While the greatest expo-
sure for a loss time accident
is the people working in the
field, the award also covers the
office staff personnel.
“Any employee gets hurt
and can’t come back to work
the next day, that’s the end of
the string,” Knutson said.
“In the day and age when a
minor back injury can turn into
a pretty serious one, the inside
employees have to be recog-
nized as part of the achieve-
ment as well,” the insurance
safety consultant said.
Current Humboldt County
REC Board of Directors Presi-
dent Kevin Rassmussen said
the accomplish goes beyond
the cooperative and its em-
ployees.
“I think spouses under-
stand how important it is for
employees to do their job and
employees have also taught
their spouses and their families
how to be safe, and that has in
turn taught others in the com-
munity how to be safe.
“We’re a safer community
because of past and present
board members, directors, em-
ployees and others who have
created a safer culture.”
“We try to create that cul-
ture of safety in the board
room and through manage-
ment and down into the em-
ployee ranks,” Rasmussen
said.
Long said the supervisory
experience of longtime em-
ployees at the cooperative,
along with the state associa-
tion’s monthly training regi-
men, have contributed to the
stellar record.
“They observe our staff and
see how well they follow safe-
ty rules and procedures,” Long
said.
He also credited Federated
for providing up-to-date statis-
tics and documentation in re-
gard to safety and credited the
board of directors for making
sure that all OSHA standards
are met to provide for a safe
workplace.
Former General Manager
Dennis Fuller was directing
the operations for 16 of the 32
years, 1984 to 2000, after serv-
ing as line superintendent for
the previous 10 years.
“One of the biggest aides
has been advent of hydrau-
lic trucks. We used to have to
back the big boom trucks into
the ditches. Now with hydrau-
lics and the basket trucks, we
can do a lot of work without
climbing the poles (and that
has enhanced the safety of the
lineman). Rubber gloves have
also helped,” he said.
He recalled attending a
statewide meeting where they
asked REC foreme n’s what
their main responsibility was?
“Most said something like
getting the job done and get-
ting the material to the site.
But Nels Hendrickson said
‘worrying about the safety of
my employees,’ and that al-
ways stuck with me,” Fuller
related.
“REC employees have al-
ways maintained the buddy
system and worrying about
your fellow crew members. I
commend the employees from
my era and the employees
today for doing a great job,”
Fuller said.
Long read letters of con-
gratulations from former
board of director’s president
Marv Lindemann who under-
went heart surgery and was not
able to be at the meeting; Phil
Irwin, CEO of Federated Rural
Electric Insurance Exchange;
and Jay Nelson of Renwick,
retired safety director of the
Iowa State Association of Ru-
ral Electric Cooperatives.
“I’m very proud of all of
you. This is a goal that demon-
strates that Humboldt County
REC not only has great con-
cern for the safety of its em-
ployees, but also its members.
It has not come easy. You have
set the bar for others. For over
32 years, your system has set
an example to others that hard
work and prolonged hours in
the most extreme weather con-
ditions can still be done with
safety utmost in mind,” Nelson
said in his letter.
While the streak will end
when Humboldt County REC
merges operations with Mid-
land Power beginning in 2013,
what a run it has been.

issue with one of its streets,”
the engineer said.
He added that Livermore
and Rutland did add some as-
phalt to aid in the side street
approaches.
“To my knowledge,
Bradgate did not when we re-
surfaced through their town a
few years ago,” Jacobson said.
“Typically in the small
towns when we put in a new
surface (county road) through
town, it has a 5 percent slope
to accommodate places like
this. My concern is, if we do it
for you, and haven’t for other
towns, it’s not really fair,” Su-
pervisor Harley Hett said.
It was mentioned that the
county does provide some 28E
funds to help with improve-
ments and upkeep. Those
funds for the past fiscal year
included $2,082 to Ottosen,
$2,100 to Hardy, $2,900 to
Bradgate, $5,500 to Thor and
$7,900 to Livermore.
“It’s a problem because ev-
eryone’s dollars are stretched,”
Supervisor Carl Mattes of-
fered.
“It’s been a problem be-
cause nothing was done to the
approach. You could see the
two layers of asphalt and cars
would bounce, it was especial-
ly noticeable with smaller cars.
It would cause an arch in the
winter. The small amount we
have to repair streets doesn’t
go far,” Fowler said. He said it
would have been better to have
rectified the problem in 2004,
when asphalt prices were
cheaper.
“We’re trying to extend
roads (in the county) every
way we can,” Jacobson said.
“We’ve still got 204 miles out-
side the city limits to take care
of.”
Supervisor John “Mort”
Christianson believed the is-
sue wasn’t so much about the
budget as about priorities.
“We’ve given $20,000 to
the Humboldt Pool for seven
years and we give Livermore
$1,600 a year for insurance on
their pool. We gave the Boy
Scouts $10,000 for a skate
park that’s barely used,” Chris-
tianson said.
After much discussion,
Supervisor Jerry Haverly
suggested a compromise be
struck. Hett moved and the su-
pervisors unanimously agreed
to approve a $1,000 payment
to the city of Ottosen for the
work, from the county’s com-
munity betterment account
which come from local option
sales tax dollars.
$20K for bridges
In other secondary road
matters, the board approved
an expenditure of $19,970 for
bridge inspections with Shuck-
Britson Inc. of Des Moines.
There are 85 bridges in the
county, the 79 traditional span
bridges will cost $195 each to
inspect, or $15,405, Jacobson
told the board. The four high
truss bridges (Murray, Devine,
Berkhimer and Bormann) will
cost $380 each to inspect and
two pony truss bridges over
Prairie Creek will cost $260
each. There will also be load
rated bridge calculation work
that will amount to $2,525, for
the $19,970 total.
Jacobson said much of the
site work will be completed
this fall with the final report
delivered in the spring of 2013.
In addition to the hired
work, Jacobson said his of-
fice will be measuring chan-
nel cross slopes at washouts, a
new requirement that will take
some time to complete.
Jacobson said more de-
tailed inspection of truss
bridges is now required due
to the I-35 bridge collapse in
Minneapolis, over five years
ago.
The board also approved
work in the county right of
way from CenturyLink for
buried communications lines
near 2113 Penn Ave.
Elderbridge funding
The board heard from Mick
Tagesen, executive director
of the Elderbridge Agency on
Aging.
Tagesen took over as ex-
ecutive director this past year,
replacing Lahoma Counts,
who retired. Tagesen joins El-
derbridge after working four
years with elderly social ser-
vice agencies in South Dakota.
Tagesen provided figures
on use of Elderbridge services
by Humboldt County senior
citizens over 60.
While congregate and
homebound meals constitute
36 percent of the agency’s ex-
pense in the county, it is not
the largest outlay. That would
be case management, serv-
ing 31 consumers at a cost of
$60,477.
The senior citizen meal
service operated through the
Humboldt County Memorial
Hospital dietary department,
accounted for an expense
of $53,106.93. That was for
17,634 meals served during
the course of fiscal 2012.
The other largest expense
was $14,279.25 for homemak-
er services, totaling 528 hours.
Tagesen said many changes
are coming for the agency, in-
cluding the addition of several
counties in northwest Iowa for
fiscal 2014. Despite the added
territory, Elderbridge will be
facing a $288,000 cut in fund-
ing for the upcoming year.
Tagesen said it is very im-
portant to be also to maintain
funding levels at the present
rate in order to avoid cutting
services.
He said Elderbridge’s total
budget is $6.5 million.
He asked the county to con-
sider a $6,968.70 funding re-
quest for next year, an increase
of $103.24 from the present
budget.
The board will consider the
request when setting the bud-
get.
The board also heard from
Lindsay Prather, Humboldt
County Outreach specialist for
Upper Des Moines Opportu-
nity in Humboldt County.
Prather said UDMO’s of-
fice hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday-Friday, with the Food
Pantry open Mondays and
Wednesdays from 9:30-11:30
a.m.
Applications are now being
taken for the Christmas basket
distribution and will be taken
through Dec. 7.
The distribution day for
volunteers at the fairgrounds
will be Dec. 18.
Prather said the Food Pan-
try needs donations of cash and
food. She said that 25 turkeys
have been secured through the
Food Bank of Iowa, but more
are needed for the upcoming
holidays.
The board also approved
the hiring of Amber Maxson as
a clerk in the auditor’s office at
a starting wage of $14.27 per
hour. She will begin her duties
on Nov. 5. Janell Ayres will be
retiring from the auditor’s of-
fice at the end of the calendar
year.

Letters To The Editor
To The Editor:
I’m confused and
frustrated! WHO is the
REAL Mitt Romney? Is he
a “severely conservative”
Republican that ran during
the Republican primary or
a “moderate” Republican
that showed up during the
presidential debates?
He said, prior to the first
debate that he supported a 20
percent across the board tax
cut that would cost $5 trillion?
Then he flip-flopped, saying
that wasn’t true. Experts in
economics now say it doesn’t
pass the math test, no matter
which side he favors. The
rich would get richer and the
middle class and the poor
would suffer; much like the
trickle-down economics that
was popular with Presidents
Reagan and George W. Bush.
His opinion changed when
he showed support for those in
need of healthcare; even those
with pre-existing conditions.
Within hours, he reversed back
to his original position, which
would repeal the Affordable
Care Act. Tens of millions of
Americans who can’t afford
health insurance, those with
pre-existing conditions,
children and young adults
up to the age of 26 would be
left in the dust. He also has
proposed drastic Medicaid
cuts, which would affect
seniors, the disabled, the poor,
and the unemployed, simply to
accommodate tax cuts for the
wealthy. His healthcare plant;
go to the emergency room, the
most expensive healthcare?
This is serious.
Now I must address Mitt
Romney’s ever-changing
positions on women’s rights.
Recently, he was asked
whether he would roll back
abortion rights. His reply,
“No, it wasn’t on his agenda.”
Within a very short time,
he retracted his statement
and then doubled-down
on women’s health issues;
everything from wellness and
cancer screenings, Roe vs.
Wade, reproductive rights, and
cuts to Planned Parenthood
clinics, the main source of
healthcare for women in need.
And don’t forget equal pay for
equal work.
I see a presidential
candidate who is not
concerned about the least of
these because he can’t relate to
the average American.
In contrast, President
Obama wants the best for all
Americans. He and the First
Lady have lived the American
Dream. I see President Obama,
a man of integrity, empathy,
intelligence, and strength,
who took office during one of
the most trying times in our
history. Despite an obstructive
Congress, he was able to
prevent our country from
going into a depression. Isn’t it
time we, Americans, have his
back? Vote DEMOCRATIC!!
Vote for the Obama-Biden
ticket!

To The Editor:
Not in all my lifetime has
there been a more important
vote to save our republic than
Nov. 6, 2012.
I’ve always voted for whom
I thought our nation needed to
lead our Presidency. This time
it hasn’t taken much of my
time to decide. I’ve seriously
thought about every decision
our President Obama has made
and the only one I can think of
was allowing our Navy Seals
to perform the task of taking
out BinLaden. I can give him
credit for that, but every other
decision he’s made has been
because of a lack of experience
and judgment, especially from
a businessman’s viewpoint.
His plan to stimulate our
economy mostly went to save
government jobs, pensions,
and so called green industries
like Solyndra, ($500 million in
tax payer’s money which was a
total loss). His commitment to
create 4,000,000 jobs is laugh-
able. Also Obama Care has
been turned down by a major-
ity of U.S. citizens as well as
a number of doctors, hospitals,
and other caregivers. It is esti-
mated that our individual taxes
will go up by $2,000 per year
to pay for this government-
imposed tax.
For a president to claim
there will be no additional tax-
es on the middle class working
man during his term is a down-
right falsehood. Also, his so-
cialist philosophy of spreading
the income by taking it away
from the rich and giving it to
the poor is totally incompre-
hensible, wrong, and against
every long established belief
in free enterprise, which built
our nation and indeed the indi-
vidual incentive we cherish.
Probably the most wrongly
stated position that Obama
has ever spoken was to give
credit for government initi-
ated building of roads, airports

and other community projects
as the main reason for Ameri-
can success, instead of all the
individual entrepreneurs who
founded their companies and
invested their own money to
build their products.
It has been recorded in the
last 100 years that there have
been more inventions and pat-
ents than in all the history of
the world, (mostly from Amer-
icans). Committees and coun-
tries didn’t do that; individuals
believing in our free enterprise
system accomplished that.
President Obama’s handling
of the Benghazi situation not
only has cost the lives of our
ambassador and three other
men, but has brought America
down in prestige, trustworthi-
ness and support with other
nations for our ongoing fight
against the Al Qaeda and their
determined purpose to destroy
America, Israel and all other
Christians and our freedom
loving citizens other than
Muslims.
Finally America has an op-
portunity to save our republic,
our free enterprise way of life
and our individual opportunity
getting the government out of
our hair by voting Obama out
of office and electing Romney
and a majority of Republicans
and Independents to the con-
gress.

To The Editor:
One day a man was help-
ing his son to the car. While
his father was trying to help
him they stumbled across the
sidewalk. A lady came out and
said, “Look how drunk he is
and he’s got cancer.” It puts
you to tears when people say
things about people they know
nothing about. The man never
drank and the father was suf-
fering from cancer and the
son’s cancer of the brain was
starting to affect his mobil-
ity and between the two, they
were trying to get to another
doctor’s appointment.
Another case, a wife was
being basted about her lazi-
ness, and dresses not the best
and the man putting in long
hours. I personally know this
couple and after the man comes
home from his work, he’s done
for the day. She works as many
hours as he does and yet she
comes home and takes care of
kids, cleaning, laundry, cook-
ing and schoolwork to make
sure it’s done, which by the
way they are A students. She
tries to make it to all school
functions her kids are involved
in and there’s no end to her
giving heart to others. She is
just as involved with the out-
side work as the inside work.
Yet there is ill talk about her.
Another case, a gentle-
man I know who works a lot
of hours and if he’s not work-
ing loves staying home as time
allows. NEVER goes out but
has rumors spread about him
often and bad. He does his job
and because it involves people,
some involved in drugs and al-
coholic or just irresponsible,
putting other’s welfare and
fairness before him gets basted
all the time because he is only
doing his job. It’s funny when
people are in the wrong, like to
put themselves as the victim,
and the others as the endless
jerk.
Rumors went about of a
husband how cruel his wife
was even at a very late age
in life. I have been a personal
friend to these people and let
me tell you, we would all be
so lucky to have a great rela-
tionship and marriage like they
did. At her side as she was dy-
ing you could see just how
much she was loved by him.
They were two peas in a pod,
nothing decided without each
other. They were each other’s
right arm.
There’s a saying that is
so true. Rumors are carried
by haters and jealous people
spread by fools and accepted
by idiots.
So what am I saying, unless
it’s fact why do you choose to
hurt people? Rumors always
get back to the people you are
talking about! Think of whom
you’re hurting and yes rumors
run deep. Know that you are
not looked on as a very nice
person by others. If you think
it makes you involved and
cool, guess again!

To The Editor:
This is about the new
Republican Party. I spent some
time this past summer fishing
in Minnesota with my brother
and a good friend. They are
both astute political observers
and we talked politics several
times. Here are some of the
conclusions we reached about
the current Republican Party.
The GOP is no longer your
father’s Republican Party.
It has morphed into a party
controlled by the foaming
right. We all agreed with
Thomas Friedman’s recent
assessment that we have
always had partisan foamers
on the right and partisan
foamers on the left. Foamers
are partisans on the radical left
and radical right who foam at
the mouth. However, the huge
majorities of the people were
either on the center right or on
the center left and were able
to reach accommodation and
govern.
We now find the GOP
under the control of the
Tea Party Foaming Right. I
recently watched an episode
of Newsroom on HBO and
here is how the news anchor
described the positions now
being embraced by Republican
foamers.
“Ideological purity,
compromise is weakness, a
fundamental belief in scripture
literalism, a denial of science,
unmoved by facts, undeterred
by new information, hostile
foe of progress, demonization
of education, need to control
women’s bodies, severe
xenophobia, tribal mentality,
intolerant of dissent and a
pathological hatred of the
U.S. Government.” And his
final comment, “in effect, the
Republican Party has become
the American Taliban”
It is hard to imagine our
government controlled by the
Tea Party GOP. Where has the
party of Eisenhower, Nixon,
Ford, and Reagan gone?

Letters from 4A
The Humboldt County
Sheriff’s Office and Humboldt
County Attorney’s Office have
filed charges against a former
Iowa State University basket-
ball coach, who conducted a
by invitation basketball camp
in Humboldt last spring.
Humboldt County Sher-
iff Dean Kruger announced
Oct. 24, that Randall “Randy”
Brown, 55, of Ames, has been
charged with failure to comply
with the Iowa Sex Offender
Registry, an aggravated misde-
meanor.
According to the arrest
warrant, Brown participated
in a basketball camp and pro-
vided instruction to the minors
present in violation of Iowa
Code, Section 692A.113.
“The defendant is required
to register as a sex offender
and is subject to the exclusion
zones contained in the Iowa
Code,” the warrant states.
Brown was arrested in
Ames on Oct. 24, and posted
bond. He is scheduled to be
arraigned on the charge today
(Nov. 1) at 9 a.m., in Hum-
boldt County District Court.
Brown, a Fort Dodge na-
tive, pleaded guilty in 2003
to federal child pornography
charges and spent time in
federal prison. He admitted
to authorities that he had de-
stroyed computer disks with
depictions of minors involved
in sexual acts.
He also admitted to engag-
ing in Internet conversations of
a sexual nature with a person
believed to be 15 years of age.
Brown was an assistant coach
for the Iowa State men’s bas-
ketball team at the time the
charges were filed. Brown im-
mediately resigned from his
position.
According to exclusion
zones and prohibitions under
the Iowa Sex Offender Regis-
try law, a sex offender who has
been convicted of a sex offense
against a minor shall not loiter
or be within 300 feet of the
premises of any place intended
primarily for the use of mi-
nors, including a recreational
or sport-related activity when
in use by a minor.
Under article 3 of the act, a
sex offender who has been con-
victed of a sex offense against
a minor shall not “operate,
manage, be employed by, or
act as a contractor or volunteer
at any place intended primar-
ily for use by minors includ-
ing but not limited to a play-
ground, children’s play area,
recreational or sport-related
activity area, a swimming or
wading pool, or a beach.”

“SCARY” INVESTMENT MOVES TO AVOID
A presidential election is almost upon us. But if you have young
children or grandchildren, you know what’s really important this
week is Butterfingers, not ballots, and Pop Rocks, not the popular
vote. Yes, it’s Halloween time again, which means you’ll see plenty
of witches and vampires scurrying around. You’ll no doubt find
these characters more amusing than frightening, but you don’t
have to look far to find things that are a bit more alarming — such
as these scary investment moves:
• Paying too much attention to the headlines — Some headlines
may seem unnerving, but don’t abandon your investment
strategy just because the news of the day appears grim.
• Chasing “hot” investments — You can get “hot” investment tips
from the talking heads on television, your next-door neighbor
or just about anybody. But even if the tip was accurate at one
point, by the time you get to a “hot” investment, it may already be
cooling down. And, even more importantly, it simply may not be
appropriate for your individual risk tolerance and goals.
• Ignoring different types of investment risk — Most investors
are aware of the risk of losing principal when investing in
stocks. But if you shun stocks totally in favor of perceived
“risk-free” investments, you’d be making a mistake because all
investments carry some type of risk. For example, with fixed-
income investments, including CDs and bonds, one risk you will
encounter is inflation risk — the risk that your investment will
provide you with returns that won’t even keep up with inflation
and will, therefore, result in a loss of purchasing power over
time. Another risk you will incur is interest-rate risk — the risk
that new bonds will be issued at higher rates, driving down the
price of your bonds. Bonds also carry the risk of default, though
you can reduce this risk by sticking with bonds that receive the
highest ratings from independent rating agencies.
• Failing to diversify — If you only own one type of investment,
and a market downturn affects that particular asset class,
your portfolio could take a big hit. But by spreading your
dollars among an array of vehicles, such as stocks, bonds and
government securities, you can reduce the effects of volatility on
your holdings. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification cannot
guarantee profits or protect against loss.)
• Focusing on the short term — If you concentrate too much on
short-term results, you may react to a piece of bad news, or to a
period of extreme price gyrations, by making investment moves
that are counterproductive to your goals. Furthermore, if you’re
constantly seeking to instantaneously turn around losses, you’ll
likely rack up fees, commissions and possibly taxes. Avoid all
these hassles by keeping your eyes on the future and sticking to
a long-term, personalized strategy.
You can’t always make the perfect investment choices. But by
steering clear of the “scary” moves described above, you can
work toward your long-term goals and hopefully avoid some of
the more fearsome results.

Cook of the Week
This week’s cook, Kathy Nokleby, is not just sharing information about her family and some
recipes; she is also sharing information about an affliction that affects many Americans: celiac
disease.
Kathy and her husband, Brian, are both natives of Granite Falls, MN. They met in high school,
have been married for 27 years and are the parents of three children: Breanna, 22; Landon, 18;
and Chase, 16. The Noklebys moved to Humboldt 14 years ago. Kathy is an Alternative Health-
care Practitioner, which includes massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, supplemental care and
detoxification. Brian is a territory sales manager. The family attends St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
A favorite or preferred menu is the Mediterranean Diet.
What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease, which occurs when the body’s immune system
reacts abnormally to gluten and produces antibodies that attack its own tissue. This causes in-
flammation and damage to the lining of the small intestine, which reduces the body’s ability to
absorb nutrients, causing symptoms such as anemia, osteoporosis, weight loss or gain, painful
abdominal bloating, diarrhea or constipation, depression, severe tiredness and skin conditions.
A blood test and biopsy can diagnose celiac disease, and a dietitian will advise on a strict
gluten-free diet. Once foods containing gluten are removed from the diet, the damaged intestinal
lining can recover and function properly; however, celiac disease is a lifelong condition, so you
will need to restrict your diet permanently.
A wheat allergy or intolerance can cause varied symptoms including sinusitis, asthma, itchy
and sore eyes, earache, headache, migraines, muscle pain, stomach cramps, skin rashes, canker
sores, coughing, tiredness, depression, bloating and nausea. Diagnosis involves blood and skin
tests, and an exclusion diet is usually recommended.

KATHY NOKLEBY AND FAMILY
Pecan Crusted Chicken
4 boneless chicken breast
halves or thighs
2 egg whites
2 teaspoon cornstarch or
arrowroot powder
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground
black pepper
Minced zest of 1 lemon
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 de-
grees. All ingredients should
be at room temperature. Cut all
fat off the chicken pieces. With
a flat mallet, lightly pound the
chicken inside a heavy plastic
bag until it is about 1/2 inch
thick. In a wide shallow bowl
combine the egg whites, thick-
ening powder and the lemon
juice with a fork. In a second
wide shallow dish combine the
finely chopped pecans, salt,
pepper and lemon zest.
Dip both sides of each
chicken piece individually in
the wet mixture and then coat
with the dry mixture. Set on a
rack. Finish all pieces. If the
pecans don’t adhere very well,
heap the chicken pieces with
more pecans. Let the chicken
pieces dry for about 15 to 20
minutes. Heat the oil to medi-
um-high and sauté the chicken
on both sides until a golden
color. Transfer to a baking
pan and then into the oven.
Roast the chicken in the oven
for 8-10 minutes or until com-
pletely cooked through.
Smoked Salmon and
Spinach Lasagna
10 ounce package gluten free
lasagna noodles, no boil,
oven ready
5-6 ounces smoked salmon,
sliced
10 ounce package minced
frozen spinach, thawed
16 ounce package tofu, firm
1 cup chicken broth or
equivalent
1-1/2 teaspoons Greek
seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
Salt
2 packages shredded Italian
5-cheese mix or equivalent
Preheat oven to 350 de-
grees. Spray a 9”x9” baking
dish with olive oil spray. Place
the tofu in your food proces-
sor and process until smooth
and creamy. Add 1 cup broth
and continue processing, until
very smooth and “pourable.”
Season to taste. Squeeze the
excess water from the spinach.
Pour 1/4 of the tofu mixture in
the baking pan. Add a layer of
noodles. Pour 1/4 of the tofu
mixture on the noodles and a
layer of 1/2 the spinach and a
layer of smoked salmon.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup
cheese and add another layer
of noodles, 1/4 cup of tofu
and the remaining spinach and
salmon. Sprinkle with cheese;
add another layer of noodles,
the remaining tofu. Cover the
pan with foil. Bake for 65
minutes or until bubbling and
heated through. Remove the
foil and sprinkle with cheese.
Return to the oven for 10 min-
utes or until the cheese has
melted.
Rice with Fresh Herbs
(simple and quick)
1 cup brown rice
3 cups chicken broth or
equivalent
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup basil, fresh, chopped
1 cup chives, fresh, snipped
1/4 cup parsley
1 teaspoon lemon zest (grated
lemon peel)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bring the chicken broth and
turmeric to a boil. Meanwhile
rinse the rice 3 times. Add to
boiling broth, reduce heat to
low. Cover and simmer until
done, about 10-15 minutes.
Drain well, if needed, then re-
turn to empty pan and dry over
medium heat, stirring to keep
from sticking. In a large bowl,
whisk together the oil, basil,
chives, parsley, lemon zest and
salt. Add the rice, toss to com-
bine. Cover until serving time.

1 tablespoon chopped mint
Pistachios, to decorate
Preheat the oven to 350 de-

with parchment paper.
Place the pistachio nuts,
confectioners’ sugar, and rice
flour in a food processor and
process until finely ground.
Whisk the egg whites in a
clean, dry bowl until stiff then
gradually whisk in the super-
fine sugar. Fold in the pistachio
mixture, coconut and mint.
Spoon the mixture in small
rocky mounds onto the cookie
sheets and press a pistachio on
top of each. Bake for about 20
minutes, until firm and just be-
ginning to brown. Cool on the
cookie sheets and serve.
These are gluten, wheat,
and dairy free.
Caramel Apple in a Dish

Simply wash, dry, and slice
apples. Sprinkle on peanuts,
raisins and M&Ms then drizzle
with Walden Farm Caramel
Dip. Place in microwaveable
dish and microwave to soften
apples and voila!

Risotto
1-1/4 pounds butternut or
acorn squash, peeled and
cut into bite-sized pieces
(about 4 cups)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves
1 tablespoon dairy-free spread
2 onions, finely chopped
2-1/3 cups Arborio risotto rice
3/4 cup dry white wine
5 cups gluten-free vegetable
stock
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400
degrees. Put the squash into a
roasting pan. Mix 1 tablespoon
of the oil with the honey and
spoon over the squash. Turn
the squash to coat it in the mix-
ture. Roast in the preheated
oven for 30-35 minutes, or un-
til tender. Meanwhile, put the
basil and oregano into a food
processor with 2 tablespoons
of the remaining oil and pro-
cess until finely chopped and
blended. Set aside.
Heat the spread and re-
maining oil in a large, heavy
saucepan over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook, stir-
ring occasionally, for 8 min-
utes, or until soft and golden.
Add the rice and cook for 2
minutes, stirring to coat the
grains in the oil mixture.
Pour in the wine and bring
to a boil. Reduce the heat
slightly and cook until the
wine is almost absorbed. Add
the stock, a little at a time, and
cook over medium-low heat,
stirring constantly, for 20 min-
utes.
Gently stir in the herb oil
and squash until thoroughly
mixed into the rice and cook
for an additional 5 minutes,
or until the rice is creamy and
cooked but retaining a little
bit in the center of the grain.
Season with salt and pepper
before serving.

You want to do the right
thing by helping people in
your community, people in our
state, or maybe even people
who are far away. But what
you don’t want to do is help
those who prey upon generous
givers.
Most legitimate charities
solicit donations honestly and
use their donated resources
wisely. Many of these charities
solicit donations through their
own staff members or volun-
teers, and some use profes-
sional fundraisers.
Questionable charities and
questionable professional fun-
draisers may mislead donors,
divert funds from more effec-
tive charities, and shortchange
genuine charitable operations.
While there are legitimate pro-
fessional fundraisers that fill a
need, some questionable fund-
raisers may divert 80 percent
to 90 percent of your donations
through fundraising expenses,
and that’s at the expense of the
people you’re trying to help.
Follow these tips to protect
yourself from fundraising and
charity abuses:
• Don’t be fooled by a sym-
pathetic name. Some opera-
tions use names that promise
more than they deliver. Many
causes clearly deserve gener-
ous public support, including
veterans, law enforcement and
firefighters, but some marginal
operations claim connections
with such groups yet provide
them with very little support.
Contact your local sheriff
or police or fire department
or veterans’ organization to
check out claims that a dona-
tion “will be used locally.” If a
charity’s name sounds similar,
but not identical, to a charity
you’re familiar with, contact
the charity you know to check
it out.
• Ask questions. Be wary of
claims that the caller is a char-
ity worker or volunteer, that
most of your donation goes to
the cause, or that your dona-
tion will be used locally. Some
charities hire professional fun-
draisers that collect fundrais-
ing fees from donations. Ask
the caller if he or she is a vol-
unteer or a professional fun-
draiser. If it’s a professional
fundraiser, ask how much of
your donation actually goes
to the charity. If you’re deal-
ing with the charity directly,
ask how much of your dona-
tion goes toward administra-
tive expenses. If you don’t get
straight answers, don’t give.
• Ask phone solicitors to
send written information.
Check out the charity before
you make a decision. Be suspi-
cious if they insist on a pledge
before they’ll send you infor-
mation. Check them out at the
national Better Business Bu-
reau “Wise Giving Alliance”
site – www.give.org or check
with www.charitynavigator.
org.
• Say no to high-pressure
solicitors. They’re likely not
working on behalf of a legiti-
mate charity or professional
fundraiser. If they offer to send
someone to pick up your dona-
tion, ask you to use an over-
night service or request you to
wire your donation, tell them
no.
• Be wary of solicitors
thanking you for past contri-
butions you don’t recall.
• Don’t give your credit
card or checking account num-
bers over the phone to some-
one you don’t know. Resist
high-pressure pitches to give
now. Trust your instinct if
something doesn’t seem right.
• Bottom line: Give wisely!
Giving to a known charity
you’re confident about is often
the best option.

It’s a busy time in the wild
world of real estate. After a
nationwide crisis, there has
been a surge of home sales
across the country and home-
owners once again are looking
for ways to increase the value
of their houses, regardless of
their intent on selling them.
Experts say there are a
number of simple ways to help
your property see a rise in val-
ue.
“To draw buyers in, you
need to create a visual story
of how they could live in your
home,” says Starr Osborne,
founder of moving-manage-
ment and design company Tai-
lored Transitions and author of
“Home Staging That Works:
Sell Your Home in Less Time
for More Money.” “You need
to prepare your home in such
a way that it tells them a tale of
the wonderful life that awaits
them.”
With a few quick moves,
telling that story can be easier.
Consider an inspection
When it comes to the inner
workings of any home, a lot
can go wrong. There are also
plenty of inopportune times
for a house’s plumbing or elec-
tricity to suddenly go out. Plan
a proper home inspection and
rest easier knowing your prop-
erty is up to code.
Get a fresh perspective
By bringing in a home
stager for a couple of hours,
you’ll gain insight into your
home from someone with an
established background in real
estate. By offering the odd
decorating idea, he or she can
help bring your home in line
with the latest and most popu-
lar design trends.
Stage your home
There are many ways easy
or temporary upgrades to your
home that can come in handy
if you’re showing it to pro-
spective buyers. “Home stag-
ing has infiltrated the selling
process all across the country,”
says Osborne. “Clearly, stag-
ing boosts sales prices.”
According to a recent Ho-
meGain survey of 2,000 real-
tors nationwide, 91 percent
recommended staging before
selling. Simple solutions from
replacing faucets to moving
furniture can dramatically im-
pact your home’s sale price.
Unclutter
If you’re looking to sell,
improve that first impression.
Make sure your lawn, shrub-
bery, walkway and driveway
are all tidy.
Get rid of messes and con-
sider a new doormat or some
nice planters. Removing books
and lamps helps unclutter a
living or family room.
Fix the easy stuff
Repair paint cracks with
spackle and a new coat. Fix
cracked or missing base-
boards, thresholds and tiling.
Make sure hinges are well
oiled and that doors and win-
dows open and close easily.
Add some color
By investing in some nice
paint and applying a fresh
coat, any home can be given
new life quickly and easily.
Assign specific colors to dif-
ferent rooms, and you’ll find
that walking around the house
is a whole new experience.
In a quick-fix marketplace
where home values have de-
creased while transactions in-
crease, deciding to sell or not
can be a big decision. But a
few simple tweaks can raise
your home’s value, whatever
decision you make.
Easy ways to increase the value of your home
1. Don’t let someone
make choices for you - Your
home is your personal space.
Don’t let someone else tell
you what you should do. If you
need help, ask for suggestions.
But when the time comes to
make decisions, they should be
yours. It’s your home and you
should feel comfortable with
the choices.
2. Don’t paint first - You
can buy paint in every color
under the sun. In fact, you can
have paint mixed in any imag-
inable color you might want.
Choose fabric, carpet, and up-
holstery first.
3. Don’t choose paint
from a paint chip - A small
chip of a paint sample might
look great in the fluorescent
light in the paint store. But a
whole wall of it might be over-
powering. When you’ve decid-
ed on a color, purchase a quart
of the color and paint a small
section to see how the color
looks in the room with natural
light.
If you don’t want to mess
up the walls, paint a piece of
cardboard and tape it on the
walls in the room where you
plan to use the color.
4. Don’t decide on colors
in a store - Never buy fabric,
flooring, or paint on your first
visit. Ask for samples of paint
and carpet and swatches of
fabric so you can see what they
look like in your home. Check
them out in natural light and in
the evening with lamps.
5. Don’t settle for blah if
you love bold - A gallon of red
paint doesn’t cost any more
than a gallon of white. You get
my point! If you love color,
find a way to use your favorite
colors in your home. Choose
colors that express your per-
sonality and coordinate with
things you love.

She was preceded in death
by her husband Leland Swan
in 2007; her parents and her
sister Wanda Brayton.
Beth Marvelle Clancy,
daughter of Marshall V. and
Wilma M. (Hefti) Clancy, was
born on her grandparents’ farm
near Hardy, on April 20, 1929.
She attended grade school at
the Hardy Public School, and
graduated from Renwick High
School in 1946. She worked in
a dress shop in Des Moines be-
fore attending business school
in Omaha, Nebraska. She re-
turned to Hardy to work at the
Hardy Elevator as bookkeeper.
On Nov. 25, 1948, Beth
married Leland D. Swan at the
Hardy Methodist Church. She
worked at Schwartzendruber
Elevator in Thor, until the birth
of her first child. She farmed
with her husband Lee all their
lives on the farm near Hardy.
She also was bookkeeper for
Hanson Electric in Renwick,
for several years.
Beginning in the 1970s,
Beth and Lee enjoyed 30 win-
ters at their home in Tucson,
AZ. They also enjoyed trav-
eling throughout the U.S. and
Canada, mostly by car.
Beth was a member of the
Hardy Methodist Church until
its closing, when she joined
the Humboldt Congregational
Church. She was a member of
the UMW in Hardy, as well as
a Sunday school teacher and
choir member. She belonged
to the Women’s Fellowship
and Circle at the Congrega-
tional Church. During her life,
Beth was also a 4-H leader,
Cub Scout den mother, and
Boone Valley Band Booster.
She was a member of the Or-
der of the Eastern Star, serving
as worthy matron; American
Legion Auxiliary; two Red
Hats groups; Humboldt Co.
Historical Association; and the
Birthday and Sewing Club.
Until this fall, Beth main-
tained her own home, cared
for numerous flower beds and
a small vegetable garden, and
fed the birds that visited her
yard.
Beth was a great storyteller
and shared her knowledge of
family history through her
own stories and those told to
her by her grandparents and
great grandparents.
BRYCEN J. OLSON
2009-2012
Funeral services for Bry-
cen Jeremiah Olson, 3, Hardy,
will be held at 10 a.m., Friday,
Nov. 2, at the Oak Hill Baptist
Church in Humboldt. Burial
will be in Trinity Cemetery,
Hardy. Visitation is from 5-8
p.m., Thursday, at the Mason-
Lindhart Funeral Home in
Humboldt. He died Saturday,
Oct. 27, 2012, at Children’s
Hospitals and Clinics in Min-
neapolis, MN.
The Mason-Lindhart Fu-
neral Home in Humboldt is in
charge of arrangements.
Bryson is survived by his
parents, Mark and Carolyn;
sister, Becky; and brothers,
Joshua, Justin, and Jeremiah.
He is also survived by grand-
parents, Charlotte Olson and
Duane and Barbara Larson; his
very special friend, Aunt Jane;
and many other aunts, uncles,
and cousins.
Brycen Jeremiah Olson was
born on July 9, 2009, in Spring
Hill, FL. In January of 2010
he was admitted to the hospi-
tal in critical condition with
little chance of survival. In
May of 2010, he was moved
to the pediatric wing of Sabal
Palms Care Facility. In early
2011, Brycen’s new case man-
ager, Allison, arranged to have
volunteers come to visit him
in the nursing facility. One of
these volunteers would even-
tually become his very special
Aunt Jane.
As she shared Brycen’s
story with family and friends,
asking for their prayers on his
behalf, Jane’s sister and broth-
er-in-law, Mark and Carolyn
Olson felt God’s leading tell-
ing them to adopt him. For
nearly a year, while Mark and
Carolyn took classes and legal
matters were in progress, Jane
continued to spend time with
Brycen in the nursing facility
watching him blossom with
the love and attention that he
had been missing out on.
On March 2, 2012, Brycen
arrived in Iowa, meeting his
immediate and extended fam-
ily at the airport for the first
time. The next six months he
spent with his loving family as
they waited for the adoption
to be finalized. The adoption
was finalized on Aug. 30. Bry-
cen was showing a lot of im-
provements thanks to his many
therapists who worked with
him. After living in a hospital
and nursing facility for nearly
two years, he was able to enjoy
many new experiences during
his brief time in Iowa includ-
ing attending church, camp-
ing, boat rides, football games,
airshows, weddings, going to
the beach, and many family
gatherings.
His third birthday was extra
special since it was the first
one that he was able to spend
at home with family around
him to celebrate.
On Oct. 15, he was admit-
ted to the Children’s Hospital
of Minnesota in Minneapolis
due to an internal hernia. Over
the next 12 days, he underwent
four operations. Despite the
excellent care of the doctors,
nurses, and staff at the hospi-
tal, he did not recover. He went
to meet Jesus at 10:08 p.m. on
Saturday, Oct. 27, while in his
mother’s arms and surrounded
by his family.
In his brief life, Bryce n
brought joy and happiness to
everyone around him. His big
smile was contagious to any-
one who met him.

Obituraries
For 140 years, the Con-
gregational United Church
of Christ has been a sentinel
looking over the comings and
goings along Taft Street. Al-
though the main structure still
remains, several changes have
occurred over its history. One
major change has just recently
been completed.
In 2011, Dr. Jim Codding-
ton and Jane Velander, the son
and daughter of Dr. Jim and
Betty Coddington, approached
members of the Congrega-
tional Church, wanting to do
something in memory of their
parents. “We had received me-
morial money for mom and
dad’s funerals, so we used that
and some more. We were hop-
ing to use it for a carillon and a
remodel of some of the church
space,” said Jane Velander.
“They (Dr. Jim and Betty
Coddington) were so involved
in the church, so social, and
they loved music. We wanted
to use the money to make a
social space that they would
have loved,” said Linda Cod-
dington, daughter-in-law.
Therefore, in May of 2010,
a Remodeling and Restoration
group was formed, made up
of members from each of the
established church commit-
tees. The group was chaired
by Pastor Linda Bigler, with
Diane Conner serving as
secretary. Other members
included Steve and Kathy
Walters, Mel Murtle, Sandra
Back, Dick Naeve, and Mar-
shall Swan. Each member
provided ideas of what could
be done with the Coddington
funds. The group brainstormed
possibilities; then Steve Wal-
ters used the ideas to design a
plan for the space. “We want-
ed to upgrade but to try to get
back to the simple character of
the building,” said Steve. “Ev-
erything is done in Neo-Gothic
Country Style.”
For years, the space intend-
ed for remodel included the
Blue Room, the small kitchen-
ette, and the Overflow Room.
Women’s Fellowship wanted
to hold their meetings on the
main floor because of the haz-
ardous stairs and several elder-
ly members. The kitchenette
was too small to handle Fel-
lowship meetings and recep-
tions following special events.
It was decided to remodel the
Blue Room and rename it the
Coddington Room, to make
the kitchenette more useable,
and to create a space in the
Overflow Room to hold recep-
tions, coffees, and other meet-
ings.
In preparation for the re-
model, Walt Summers, the
custodian, painted a Sunday
School Room and installed
shelving. Hope Circle moved
the Library from the Overflow
Room to the Sunday School
Room. Hope Circle also
stripped wallpaper from the
Blue Room, cleaned out the
cupboards in the old kitchen-
ette cabinets. The cupboards
were donated to the ReStore.
Construction began in
March of 2011. Gronbach
Construction installed new
sheet rock and rebuilt the
kitchen and storage areas.
While working on the area,
they discovered an origi-
nal, ax-hewn post standing
since construction 140 years
ago. Detrick Electric rewired
the new Coddington Room
and kitchenette. “Rewiring
a 140 year old building was
a major concern,” said Steve
Walters, the designer. “It was
an impressive accomplish-
ment by Detrick and Gronbach
to get new power installed in
an old stone building.” Adam
Smith of Beebe Plumbing took
care of all plumbing needs.
Kathy “George” Walters
and Diane Conner became
the master painters, with the
help from other Hope Circle
members. In the former Blue
Room, which had been a deep
aqua in color, they applied four
coats of primer and two coats
of color. As they were working
above the closet door, they no-
ticed the words “Painted and
Papered Jan. 22, 1974, by Ed-
die Ruse and Lloyd Fortner.”
Also named in the original
decoration of the room were
Mabel Erickson, Geri Miller,
Betty Coddington and Jessie
Helmke.
Steve Walters created a vi-
sual board to which he affixed
pictures and diagrams. In this
way the congregation was kept
informed on the progress of
the remodel. “We designed the
space so that everything would
be efficient. It was to be an up-
grade to something practical to
use,” said Steve Walters.
Diane Connor and Mel
Murtle, aided by Darlene
Hellickson, chose flooring
from Hjemelands. Diane also
chose the paint scheme for the
new areas. Acoustical panels
will be added in the near future
for sound control.
“It’s not a big space, but it’s
wonderful”, said Diane Con-
nor.
Because the Coddingtons
loved music, it was deter-
mined that part of the memo-
rial money should be used to
install a carillon. Tom Teck-
lenberg investigated the tower,
Bob Dodd built the mount-
ing bracket, and Todd Leem-
kuil, using the boom truck do-
nated by REC, helped with the
installation. Beginning the first
week of September, the caril-
lon began ringing forth every
half hour.
Today, 140 years after its
original construction, thanks
to contributions from the Cod-
dington family, Jessie Helmke,
and Women’s Fellowship, the
new Coddington Room and
remodeled Overflow Room
provide welcome space for
the congregation. “Our people
love this space,” said Diane
Connor. “They love coming
in here for coffee. We’re very
proud of it.”
Steve Walters created a visual board to which he af-
fixed pictures and diagrams. In this way the congrega-
tion was kept informed of the progress of the remodel.
Memorials for Dr. Jim and Betty Coddington, who
loved music and socializing, provided funds for the
Congregational United Church of Christ remodel and
restoration.
Deb Dahl uses the new kitchenette of the Overflow
Room.
Kathy Walters, Steve Walters and Diane Conner stand in the newly remodeled
Coddington Room.
After Sunday services, Elaine Heiter, Roger Heiter,
Gordy VanGronigen and Cal Muller enjoy coffee and
treats in the newly remodeled Overflow Room.

Thursday, November 1, 2012 The Humboldt Independent 11A
By Kent Thompson
Repurposing is a word that
wasn’t heard of a few years ago,
but with the emphasis on recy-
cling and finding new uses for old
things, the word seems to fit per-
fectly for a project and fundraiser
being undertaken by the consum-
ers at West Fork Services.
Just in time for holiday giv-
ing and gifting, West Fork will be
hosting a craft fair at their build-
ing on Taft Street North on Satur-
day, Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
There will be booths with
many area crafters, along with a
number of items that West Fork
consumers have made, finding
new purposes for used furniture.
“The highlight will be the re-
purposed furniture made by our
consumers,” said Kim Tinken, job
developer at West Fork.
“There are lots of neat things
they have done and are finishing
up on,” Tinken said.
Some examples include an old
desk that has been made into two
lingerie chests, a bookcase that
has been turned into a headboard,
a door cut in two to make a cof-
fee table or end table. A couple of
items that have been made are a
pair of window bench seats that
are on display in the window of
the Hjelmeland Flooring building.
“They would be perfect for a
breezeway or a mud room, a little
seat to put on shoes,” Tinken said.
While the consumers have re-
ceived some assistance and ideas
from staff, they have been allowed
to be creative in their new con-
struction, using decoupage, maps,
various paints, stencils and other
ideas to give worn furniture new
life and a new look.
“We utilized some home and
garden magazines and other re-
sources but the consumers pretty
much decided what they wanted
to make,” the West Fork staffer
said.
“We have about a dozen dif-
ferent items and we hope it’s
something that becomes a yearly
event. The other neat thing is, they
are items created by the consum-
ers and the funds raised from the
sale will go back to them, so they
can put them into next year’s proj-
ect,” said Lynn Peterson, voca-
tional coordinator at West Fork.
David Fibiker was one of the
consumers who was sanding a
door for construction of a table.
David has had quite a lot of
experience using hand and some
power tools and says he enjoys
building things and making some-
thing new out of something old.
“They really enjoy working on
the projects and we have had good
feedback from the parents and
guardians since we first started
on this early last summer,” Tinken
said.
While West Fork won’t be tak-
ing individual customer requests,
the workshop does welcome some
old pieces of furniture that could
be useful in the project of repur-
posing.
“If someone has something to
drop off or something we can pick
up, let us know,” Tinken said.
On the day of the craft show,
people are asked to enter West
Fork using the new doors on the
east side of the building.
There is no admission charge.
There will be cinnamon rolls
and Jumpy Monkey coffee for
sale in the morning and lunch
available, featuring maidrites or
walking tacos.
“While it is a recreational pro-
gram for some of our consumers,
West Fork Services Kim Tinken (left) and Lynn Pe-
terson (right) pose with window benches constructed
by consumers at West Fork Services, who used old fur-
niture for new repurposed uses. The items will be for
sale during a craft show planned for Saturday, Nov. 10,
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the West Fork Services office on
North Taft Street. The items are on display in the win-
dow of Hjelmeland Flooring in downtown Humboldt.

there is also a business aspect to
it. They have a limited budget and
have to be creative in how they
spend the money they have,” Tin-
ken said.
Vendor space is very limited,
so crafters are urged to contact
Lynn or Kim as soon as possible
to determine availability. They
can be reached at West Fork by
calling 332-2841.
“We look forward to a fun
event with broad community sup-
port,” Tinken said.
West Fork to host creative craft fair
Shopko has announced that
the liquidation sale has ended and
the store conversion process to
Shopko Hometown has begun.
On Sunday, Oct. 21, the Pami-
da store closed.
The store was closed for one
week until the first department,
Consumables, was converted.
The entire conversion process
will last between 5–6 weeks.
Consumables include health
and beauty products, over-the-
counter consumables, candy,
beverages and snacks. The depart-
ment reopened to the public last
Sudany, Oct. 28.
The conversion to Shopko
Hometown will include new inte-
rior and exterior signage, carpet,
paint, updated and supplement
fixtures and lighting and a new
easy to shop store layout.
Each of the store’s three pri-
mary departments will be con-
verted one department at a time
with each department opening to
shoppers as soon as it’s complete.
Following the Consumables
department will be the Home de-
partment, which will open no later
than Nov. 11.
The Home department in-
cludes sporting goods, electron-
ics, housewares, toys and domes-
tics.
The final department to con-
vert is Apparel, which will open
by Nov. 18. As the name implies,
Apparel will include all clothing
items, shoes and accessories.
The store’s outdoor lawn and
garden department will remain
open throughout the conversion.
A grand opening celebration will
take place once the entire conver-
sion process is complete.
“Since our merger with Pami-
da early this year, we›ve convert-
ed more than 120 Pamida stores to
the Shopko Hometown format,”
said Mike Bettiga, Shopko Inter-
im CEO.
“The response from our cus-
tomers has been overwhelmingly
positive and we are thrilled to be
just weeks away from introducing
this retail concept to Humboldt.”
Shopko Hometown combines
Shopko’s strong reputation of
customer service with a broad and
dynamic offering of strong nation-
al brands and high-value private
label brands of apparel, home fur-
nishings, toys, consumer electron-
ics, seasonal items, and lawn and
garden products – all in a well laid
out store formats that range from
15,000 to 35,000-square-feet.
Shopko is investing approxi-
mately $80 million into Pamida
store conversions, which will oc-
cur in phases through the end of
the year.
Shopko is owned by affiliates
of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., a
leading private investment firm
focused on leverage buyouts, eq-
uity, debt, and other investments
in market-leading companies.
Headquartered in Green Bay,
WI, Shopko Stores Operating
Co., LLC is a $3 billion retailer
with 350 stores in 22 states. The
company is celebrating its 50
th
an-
niversary this year.

Most of the focus of this year’s
general election is on the national
races for president and U.S. Con-
gress, even locally.
Several local offices and the
Iowa House race for State Repre-
sentative District 10, are no races
at all, as they are uncontested.
There is one contested race
for Humboldt County Supervisor,
that being in District 4. Incumbent
John “Mort” Christianson, Demo-
crat from Bode, is running against
Republican Randy Foth of Liver-
more.
Foth decided to throw his hat
in the ring to give people a choice
at the ballot box.
Christianson has served two
terms on the board of supervi-
sors. He has an interest in drain-
age and roads and has also served
on boards regarding mental health
and juvenile detention.
District 4 is the largest of the
supervisor districts in area, span-
ning a large section of southern,
northern, central and northeastern
Humboldt County, encompassing
an L-shape geographically.
The supervisor districts were
redrawn last year, after the 2010
census realignment.
Four of the five supervisor dis-
tricts will be up for election this
year.
Rick Pedersen is running as
a Republican for District 3, the
newly created district includes
the southeast portion of the city
of Humboldt, all of Beaver Town-
ship (except Dakota City) and the
southern half of Norway Town-
ship (with the exception of the
city of Thor).
Pedersen has been engaged
in farming and is an independent
building contractor. He has served
two terms on the Humboldt Com-
munity School District Board of
Education.
Also running unopposed in
District 1 is Republican Harlan
Hansen. The longtime supervisor
has a slightly different district this
time, including more of the city
of Humboldt and most of Rutland
Township. Hansen lives in rural
Rutland.
Also running unopposed is
Jerry Haverly of rural Goldfield.
Haverly, a Democrat, represents
District 5, which includes the city
of Dakota City, Grove and Lake
Townships, as well as the North-
ern half of Norway Township and
the northeast one-quarter of Ver-
non Township. Haverly is a farmer
and has been the board chairman
for the past year.
Other county offices are un-
contested, with Sheriff Dean
Kruger, Auditor Peggy Rice and
County Attorney Jon Beaty, all
running unopposed on the Repub-
lican ticket.
Rep. Tom Shaw (R-Laurens)
is running unopposed for the new-
ly drawn District 10 Iowa House
of Representatives seat. Shaw
was elected to office in 2010. His
district now includes all of Hum-
boldt, Pocahontas and Calhoun
counties and a portion of Webster
County.
There is a contested race for
Humboldt County Agriculutral
Extension Council with six people
vying for four seats. Larry Lane,
Dee Stern, Cassandra Smith, Mar-
ilyn Stein, Jeffery Goodell and
Jenna Bormann are the candidates
seeking the office, along with Will
Spellmeyer, who is running unop-
posed to fill a vacancy.
There is no contested race for
Humboldt County Soil and Water
Conservation District Commis-
sioner, although one seat could be
filled by write-in.
Robert Lynch, Tim Terwilliger
and Pat Hill are commissioners
seeking re-election and Max Re-
denius is running to fill one of
two vacancies on the commission,
with one to be filled by write-in.
Three candidates have filed
for seats on the Humboldt Coun-
ty Memorial Hospital (HCMH)
Board of Trustees, with Scott
Curran of Humboldt running to
replace Vivien Hansen, who is
retiring from the board. Board
President Tim Anderson and Vice
President Rodney Harklau are
both seeking re-election. Terms
of the HCMH Board are for six
years.
There are no contested rac-
es for township trustees in the
county. Each township has two
trustees. There are no declared
candidates in the townships of
Humboldt, Lake and Wacousta.
Those positions will be filled by
write-in.
There are also contested races
to fill vacancies on city councils
in the communities of Livermore
and Gilmore City.
Christa Jensen and George
McMahon are running for the
open seat in Livermore, while
Cleo Boles, Denny Davis and Tim
Smith have filed papers to run for
City Council in the town of Gilm-
ore City.
The newly created 4
th
District
in Iowa for U.S. House of Rep-
resentative expands what was al-
ready a vast territory of the state.
The 4
th
District includes Hum-
boldt as well as most of northern,
western and south central Iowa.
Republican incumbent Steve
King of Kiron is running against
Democratic challenger Christie
Vilsack of Ames. Martin James
Monroe is also on the ballot, nom-
inated by petition.
The big prize is the presiden-
tial race, with a very close elec-
tion expected between incumbent
Barack Obama (Democrat-IL)
and Mitt Romney (Republican-
MA). Most pundits are calling the
race too close to call.
Polls for the Tuesday, Nov. 6,
general election will be open from
7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Here is a list of polling loca-
tions in the county.
Avery/North Weaver, Faith
United Methodist Church,

By Phil Monson
From start to finish, Humboldt High junior
Sam Larson ran her best race ever last Sat-
urday (Oct. 27) in the Class 3A State Cross
Country Championships.
Running in her third state meet at Lakeside
Golf Course north of Fort Dodge, Larson
saved her best for last and set a school record
in the process with a seventh-place finish.
Larson breezed the course with a time of
14:58. She topped the school record she had
set earlier this season in the low 15:00 range.
For Larson, who finished ninth a year ago at
state in what was then a new school record
time of 15:07, it was all about running the
complete race she has strived for all season
long.
“I feel very good. I was very surprised
about my placing. I’m happy with my time,”
Larson said.
“I wasn’t worried about the girls behind me
at the end of the race. I was more focused on
the girl right ahead of me. I didn’t quite get
her, but that’s all right. I’m happy with my
finish,” Larson said.
Larson and Wildcat coach Dean Clasen
Larson runs 7th at state!
Humboldt junior clips school record in 14:58
were looking to get off to a stronger start than
previous races, without sacrificing much at
the end.
The strategy paid off.
“Coach Clasen was hoping I would go out
with a 5:50-5:55 first mile. But I was out at
5:48. I was a little worried about holding ev-
erybody off, knowing I was in sixth or seventh
place at that point,” Larson said. “But I was
going for time and it was my last race of the
season so I knew I had to give it my all.”
“I was a couple of seconds off of my PR
(personal record). I’m real happy about that
and with my season and setting the school
record,” Larson said.
Waverly-Shell Rock standout Anna Hold-
iman was the 3A winner in 13:51. Lauren
Benzing of Solon was runner-up at 14:30 and
MOC-FV’s Bethany Dykstra ran 14:31 for
third. Fourth-place went to Madison Waymire
of Dallas Center-Grimes. Kenzie Theisen of
LeMars was fifth at 14:40 and Sarah Stef-
fensmeier of Fort Madison was sixth in 14:55.
Larson was followed by Ballard Huxley’s
Abby Kohut-Jackson in 15:01.
“Her time was at or near her very, very best
so that’s all you can ask of any of the kids to
run in their very last meet. At this stage, that’s
exactly what she did and what we’re looking
for,” Clasen said.
“She ran most of the race in fourth place
and was sixth up to the second mile. She
moved up to fifth then was back in fourth
because there was a pack,” Clasen said.
“With about 600 meters to go she was in
sixth place and there was a Fort Madison girl
running with her who ended up passing Sam
at about the 200-meter mark. But overall, she
did a really good job,” Clasen said.
“She knows she’s not going to outsprint
people at the end. She has to set her tempo
early in the meet. And that’s always a dicey
thing to do because if you start the race too
early, you end up running out of gas and you
Meet Janesville
in regional final
West Bend-Mallard/Gilmore
City-Bradgate came out swing-
ing in their Class 1A Regional
volleyball tournament match
last Friday night, and the result
paid dividends.
The Wolverines won a deci-
sive 25-16 first set and went on
to sweep Laurens-Marathon in
three sets in the regional semi-
final played in the West Bend
gym on Oct. 26.
The victory, which improved
the Wolverines’ season match
record to 29-4, sent them into a
regional final with No. 4 ranked
Janesville on Oct. 31 in Eagle
Grove. Janesville advanced
from the other side of the
regional bracket with a three-
set victory over Northwood-
Kensett.
The Wolverines, ranked No.
13 in 1A, were wary of the No.
15-ranked Chargers, who edged
WBM/GCB 2-1 in the L-M
tournament back in early Sep-
tember. But time and strategy
proved to be on the Wolverines’
side for this meeting as they
finished out the match with
wins of 25-23, 25-23.
“Our biggest concern going
into the match was that they had
already beat us earlier in the
season,” WBM/GCB co-coach
Kari Ehlers said. “We played
About the only thing wrong with open-
ing night of the Iowa High School football
playoffs last week (Oct. 24) was the weather.
And even at that, the cold, wet, slippery
conditions at Mason Maach Field in Hum-
boldt played right into the Wildcats’ rushing
attack as the Wildcats routed the Newton
Cardinals, 42-3 in the first round of the Class
3A state playoffs.
Humboldt ran right over the Cardinals on
their opening drive and never looked back in
rolling up an impressive post-season victory.
Brady Ross ran for 158 yards and two
touchdowns and quarterback Ben Jacobson
hooked up with teammates Tyler Zaugg,
Jaxon Heinz and Garrett Nelson on touch-
down passes as Humboldt piled up 416 yards
of offense.
“We really set the tone early. I didn’t see
this final score coming. Newton is a good
football team. I couldn’t be more proud of a
group of kids. They have worked their tails
off. We played really well tonight,” Hum-
boldt coach Greg Thomas said.
“I thought the key to tonight’s game was
Humboldt’s offensive line play. They were
on all of our defenders in the box. They run
hard – all of their backs. It seemed like they
had us all blocked and that’s a credit to them.
They got off the ball and got into us,” Newton
coach Joe Ergenbright said.
Humboldt took the opening kickoff and
marched 60 yards on six plays, capped by
the sophomore tailback Ross, who scored
on a nine-yard burst up the middle. Austin
Zylstra’s point-after kick was wide right for
a 6-0 lead.
Newton came right back and needed 17
plays to cover 89 yards, culminating on a
20-yard field goal by Nick Easley with 2:30
to play in the first quarter. The Cardinals
were forced to kick a field goal after they

WBM/GCB falls in
1st round playoff
After a scoreless first quar-
ter, West Bend-Mallard/Gilm-
ore City-Bradgate head foot-
ball coach Pete Kapustynski
thought his team was on track
in their first round playoff
opener last week (Oct. 24) at
Marcus.
But the unbeaten Mar-
cus-Meriden-Cleghorn War
Eagles exploded for 29 sec-
ond quarter points and never
looked back in sprinting past
the WBM/GCB Wolverines,
49-6 in an Eight-Man playoff
opener.
The War Eagles scored
13 more points in the third
quarter and held the Wolver-
ines’ offense to just 197 yards
overall. The loss ended WBM/
GCB’s season at 6-5 overall.
Andrew Hoefling had a
hand in six touchdowns for
the War Eagles and quarter-
back Tanner Utesch caused
the Wolverine defense fits all
night.
“As coaches we thought we
were pretty well prepared go-
ing into the game, but it didn’t
seem that way,” Kapustynski
said of his squad, which lost
lost 38-32 to the War Eagles
back in late-August in a non-
district game.
“We missed too many tack-
les. We had chances on their
quarterback to sack him, but
he was slippery and got away.
They exploded on a couple
of big time plays that took
the wind out of our sails,”
Kapustynski said.

After Hoefling scored on a
two-yard run, the Wolverines
put together a 10-play, 65-yard
scoring drive that included
passes from Jesse Zinnel to Ja-
son Zinnel for some big gains,
and the running of Dan Eubank.
The drive ended with 8:03 to
play in the second quarter on a
two-yard run by Jesse Zinnel.
The pass play for two points
was blocked.
Utesch came right back
and broke free on a 59-yard
touchdown run. Hoefling and
Utesch later hooked up on a
53-yard touchdown pass play.

When the Humboldt High football team scored their first
touchdown with 8:37 left to play, an energized head coach
Greg Thomas shouted to his players, “we can do this.”
And up until the final minute of the Wildcats’ 21-12 second
round Class 3A playoff loss to the South Tama Trojans Monday
night in Humboldt, who could doubt this Wildcat football team.
After all, this was the same Wildcat squad – a senior-laden
squad – that picked itself off the turf back in early September
and won seven straight games to win their district title and earn
the school’s first playoff berth in six years.
But the Trojans’ bruising rushing attack and some untimely
miscues proved to be too much for Humboldt to overcome as
they saw their season come to an end on a cold, bitter night at
Mason Maach Field.
“I told the kids in the huddle here after the game that we were
staring at 0-3 at the beginning and they hung in there with us
coaches and reeled off seven wins in a row. There’s nothing to
be ashamed of. They won a playoff game. I’m extremely proud
of this group of young men for everything they stand for and
everything they’ve done,” Thomas said.
“There’s no quit in these guys. We have 25 seniors who
have been leaders on and off the field for us. They’ve been
tremendous in the school hallways and on the field in practice.
I expect their senior year to finish up just like that. There’s no
quit in them,” Thomas said.
The Trojan ground game battered the Humboldt defense for
325 of its 344 total yards of offense. Led by senior running
back Kyle Stepheson, the Trojans scored a touchdown in each
of the second, third and fourth quarters.
And in between defensive stops when the Trojans kept
Humboldt’s ground game in check, the Wildcats were unable
to convert at times on offense when they needed to sustain a
drive.

27) in Fort Dodge, faster times
and improved performances
were the highlight of the day.
The Dodgers and coach
Rosie Ellendson, finished ninth
in the team scoring with 76
points. West Des Moines Val-
ley won the team title with 525
points.
The five Humboldt High girls
competing on the squad all saw
action on the day.
Alyssa Nehring and Jen
Bentz were on the 200 freestyle
relay that placed eighth and
were on the 400 freestyle relay
team that placed sixth.
“Both girls had their best
relay splits in the 400 freestyle
relay,” Ellendson said. “Alyssa
swam a 1:04.78 time and Jen
swam a 1:03.78.”
“Alyssa placed 22nd in the
50 freestyle and Jen placed 16th
in the 100 freestyle with a time
of 1:06.32 with her best time,”
Ellendson said.
“Shay Saathoff placed 11
th
in the 100 breaststroke with her
best time of 1:18.40. She also
placed 22nd in the 100 fly with
a time of 1:20.81,” Ellendson
said.
“Allison Boswell had an
outstanding day. She placed
18th in the 200 freestyle with a
time of 2:29.39. She took seven
seconds off. Then in the 500
freestyle she placed 16th with a
time of 6:53.40. In that race she
took off another five seconds,”
Ellendson said.
“Amanda Schaffer placed
19th in the 200 IM with a time
of 2:51.79. She took off three
seconds. She placed 18th in
the 500 freestyle with a time
of 7:03.30. She took off 13
seconds in that race,” Ellendson
said.
“I was very proud of all the
girls and while we didn’t have
any state qualifiers, we saw a
lot of improvement and that’s
all you can ask of the girls,”
Ellendson said.
Humboldt High School junior class swimmer Shay Saathoff, shown here competing in the butterfly competition in a
recent home swim meet competing for Fort Dodge Senior High School, placed 22nd in the event last week in regional action

them at their tournament and
lost a pretty close match. One
thing that evened out that con-
cern was that our rotation was
completely different, so if they
watched tape of that game, they
really had no idea of what our
team actually looked like.”
“One of the things we worked
on was starting out the game
swinging. It’s been a problem
all year that we don’t hit the
ball hard right away,” Ehlers
said. “I told them they’d have
to start the game off swinging
if they wanted to win and they
did a pretty good job. Another
thing we worked on was block-
ing. The first pint of the game,
we blocked one of their outside
hits and I think that pretty much
set the tone of the game.”
Ashley Schmidt made 11
kills and Heather Fehr had
nine to pace the Wolverines.
Courtney Bargmann made 32
assists, Kayla Banwart had 14
digs with Jennalynn Thul next
at 12. Bargmann was in on six
blocks while Schmidt made
four ace serves.
“We didn’t change our game
plan for tonight. It’s been the
same all season – and that’s
to control the tempo and make
the other team make mistakes. I
feel like we did a decent job, but
we can still do better,” Ehlers
said. “We still have some things
to work on for Wednesday’s
“We came back and scored
after their first score and so we
thought we were right back in
the ballgame,” Kapustynski
said. “But they took off with it
after that.”
“Halfway through the second
half we could feel the momen-
tum slip away. So in the middle
of the fourth quarter we took
our starters our and played our
younger kids,” Kapustynski
said.
Utesch rushed for 133 yards
on 12 carries and Hoefling
rushed for 120 yards on 20 car-
ries. Utesch completed four of
nine passes.
Eubank led the Wolverine
ground attack with 52 yards on
nine carries. Jesse Zinnel com-
pleted nine of 17 passes for 95

Top North Iowa in 4
The Wolverines overcame
a loss in the first set to North
Iowa and went on to defeat the
Bison in four sets on Oct. 23 in
West Bend in the second round
of regional play.
North Iowa won the first set
by a 26-24 score, but the Wol-
verines came back with three
straight by scores of 25-13, 25-
11 and 25-17 to win the match
and advance into a regional
semifinal.
Courtney Bargmann made 34
assists while McKenzie Grimm
made 14 kills. Ashley Schmidt
supplied 11 kills. Kayla Ban-
wart made 16 digs. Grimm was
tough at the net with 13 blocks,
including 5 solos. Banwart also
served 21 of 21 for three aces.
“It can be difficult to get ex-
cited about playing a team that
you have beaten twice already
this season,” coach Ehlers said.
“I feel like we played decent.
I still feel like we have yet to
peak. One game our backrow
might play awesome but we
struggle hitting or vice-versa.”
“I’m still waiting for the
game where everything clicks
and we play better than we
have ever played before. Once
we started hitting like we usu-
ally do, we started playing like
the team that I know we are,”
Ehlers said.

Ashton Fehr, Kurt Banwart,

can’t finish and people go by
you,” Clasen said. “In her case,
it’s been about 400 to 500 me-
ters out that she’s been starting
to move and keep from letting
the form break down.”
“She was able to create a gap
from that one gap and so there
was only one girl who was truly
close to her. The others behind
her closed up a little down the
stretch, but Sam was able to
finish strong and a good, solid
seventh. That finish wasn’t in
jeopardy the way she ran her
race up to the end,” Clasen said.
As she re-gained her energy
after the race, Larson was al-
ready talking about 2013. With
everybody returning, including
a weatlh of talented underclass-
men, there’s optimism for the
future.

“I’m definitely excited for
next year. My biggest goal is to
get the team to state next year,”
Larson said. “If we work over
the summer, we can do it.”
“I just want to thank Mr.
Clasen and all of my teammates
for putting up with me through
the season. Both teams had
wonderful seasons. I’m proud
of everybody,” Larson said.
“We’ve said throughout the
season that we only have one
senior on our squad, so we’ve
looked at accomplishing things
this year and building for the
future,” Clasen said.
“It was unfortunate that
Karlee Peyton was injured for
most of the year. When we have
a healthy Karlee and with the
other girls we have on the squad
this year – plus a few middle
school girls coming up, we feel
we have a chance to do some
really nice things next year.”

Nov. 6 at the high school caf-
eteria.

Cardinals last week (Oct. 24) in Humboldt. Humboldt Independent photo.
yards on seven plays, capped
by Jacobson’s 40-yard scoring
pass to Tyler Zaugg over the
middle. Jacobson then passed
to a wide open Zaugg in the
corner of the south end zone for
a 14-3 lead at 11:46 in the sec-
ond quarter. The drive featured
a 39-yard run by Ross that put
HHS on the Newton 40.
Newton, led by sophomore
quarterback Tyler Wood work-
ing out of the shotgun, tried
to spread the field with short
passes from sideline to sideline,
but they couldn’t string together
enough successful plays to sus-
tain their drives.
Newton was forced to punt
on their second drive from their
43, but the punt was partially
blocked by Humboldt’s Nikko
Wheeler, giving Humboldt pos-
session on their own 38. Eight
plays later, Jacobson hit sopho-
more Jaxon Heinz on a 22-yard
touchdown pass. Zylstra’s kick
gave Humboldt a 21-3 lead with
6:47 left in the first half.
Newton was forced to punt
soon afterwards and Humboldt
began another drive from its
37-yard line. Ross carried to
the one-yard line and senior
tailback Ryan Lee burst through
the line for a one-yard touch-
down run with 1:13 left before
halftime. Zylstra’s kick gave
Humboldt a 28-8 halftime lead.
Newton had the ball to begin
the second half and drove to
midfield, only to see the drive
halted on a pass interception
by Aaron Mickelson. Hum-
boldt’s running game battered
the Cardinal defense and the
drive culminated on a Ross
13-yard touchdown run at 7:28.
Zylstra’s kick made it 35-3
Humboldt.
In the fourth quarter Hum-
boldt put together another time-
consuming drive that ended
with Jacobson hitting Garrett
Nelson on a 16-yard pass from
Jacobson. Jacobson completed
10 of 13 passes for 197 yards.
HHS had four players each with
over 40 yards receiving on the
night.
“Newton can be a danger-
ous team offensively with their
passing attack. It rained all da
today and the weather con-
ditions were in our favor,”
Thomas said.
“We talk about being physi-
cal with people and it starts
with our offensive line and our
running backs. Rutz had some
nice yards and did a great job
kicking out and blocking. Our
offensive line did a super job.
Brady continues to run hard
and Nikko did a nice job when
he got in there and ran hard,”
Thomas said.
“Defensively we had the
philosophy that they were go-
ing to get a few, but we’ll bend
and not break. We didn’t think

they could consistently move
the football on us. It turned out
our way tonight,” Thomas said.
Ergenbright, whose team
finished the season with a 5-5
record, continued his praise for
the Wildcats.
“They would go play action
and we didn’t get pressure on
their quarterback, so he would
have time to throw. I know our
cornerback slipped a few times
back there and they were open
on some big third down plays,
which kept drives going for
them. We just couldn’t get our
defense off the field,” Ergen-
bright said.
“Credit goes to Humboldt.
They’re a good football team,”
Ergenbright said. “I wish Hum-
boldt good luck. They’re a
good team that will go a ways.
We were beat by a better team
tonight. There’s no about that.”

Humboldt receiver Tyler Zaugg (25) was unsuccessful in
trying to get a handle on this long pass in the final seconds
of the Wildcats’ Class 3A state playoff loss to South Tama
Monday night in Humboldt. The Wildcats fell to the Trojans,
21-12, to end their season with an 8-4 record. Humboldt In-
dependent photo.
“South Tama is a tremendous
running football team. That
Stephenson kid is a heck of a
football player. And he’s not
the only one. They did a nice
job up front with their line. I
thought they played really good
defense,” Thomas said. “The
most surprising part of tonight
was that we couldn’t move the
ball better than we could. But
South Tama deserves a lot of
the credit tonight. They did an
outstanding job.”
Humboldt’s normally potent
ground attack was limited to
just 42 yards on 17 carries.
Sophomore tailback Brady
Ross, who is among the top 10
3A leaders in statewide in rush-
ing, could only muster 20 yards
on eight carries before leaving
the game in the second half with
a leg injury.
And when HHS fell behind
21-0 early in the fourth quarter,
the Wildcats had to resort to
their passing attack.
A long pass from Ben Ja-
cobson to Matt Pogge covering
42 yards, and a 16-yard run by
Nikko Wheeler, were the only
two plays Humboldt needed on
their first scoring drive at 8:37
to play.
An onside kick by Humboldt
on the ensuing kickoff put the
Trojans at their 47-yard line.
But a few plays later the Trojans
fumbled and Devin Shiflett
recovered on the Wildcat 13.
Humboldt put together a 12-
play, 87-yard drive that finished
with Jacobson passing to Tyler
Zaugg with 2:23 left on the
clock. The conversion pass for
two was incomplete and the
Wildcats trailed 21-12.
Zaugg recovered the next
onside kickoff and Humboldt
has possession on the Trojan
48 with 2:21 to play. A high,
bad snap resulted in Jacobson
HHS football from B front
getting buried by the Trojan
defense back on the 35. After
two long, incomplete passes,
South Tama took over on the
Humboldt 27 with 1:51 to play
and ran out the clock to end the
game.
South Tama (9-2) advanced
into Friday’s quarterfinal round
where they’ll face unbeaten and
No. 3 ranked Grinnell (11-0).
“Turnovers and dropped
passes, those are part of foot-
ball. We’ve had a lot of those
things go our way the last
seven weeks and tonight some
of those didn’t. It’s part of the
game. We had some chances
and so did they. Two pretty
good football teams played
tonight,” Thomas said.
“Brady got injured in the
second half. He brought himself
off the field. He was obviously
hurting physically. I’m not sure
at this point what the extent of
his injury is. Nobody wants to
be out there more than him but
he knew he just couldn’t go,”
Thomas said.
“To stop their rushing attack
was big, because it forced them
to become one-dimensional,”
South Tama coach Jay Hoskey
said.
“We didn’t work with a short
field but we got some turnovers
that we were able to take advan-
tage tonight. Our defense has
played pretty well the second
half all season. Nobody has
been able to run the ball much
on us this year and we were
able to continue that tonight,”
Hoskey said.
“We put on the bulletin board
before the game that we have
to win the trenches. We had to
assert our kind of play and our
kind of game. And we did that
tonight,” Hoskey said. “The
kids took that to heart and got
the job done.”
“Going in, we had con-
cerns. A lot happens during the
course of any given season but
Newton beat us on a night we
were flat and Humboldt beat
Newton badly last week in the
first round,” Hoskey said. “In
watching tape of that game we
saw some things that we felt
we could do defensively to cut
down on their rushing attack
and those things worked. Their
big young tailback wasn’t in
there much later in the game.”
“Now we play Grinnell that
throws the ball so well and
they spread the field so well.
Hopefully we can get better at
pass coverage. Our pass rush
has to improve, too. We don’t
have long to do it. We’ve got
a three-day turnover before
we play them. Fortunately we
already know what they do,”
Hoskey said.
Jacobson completed 13 of 28
passes for 185 yards with six
different receivers catching the
ball, led by Matt Pogge with 86
yards on four catches.
“We had to throw the football
and we spread them out and
made some nice plays. Ben
throws the ball extremely well
and calls a nice two-minute of-
fense. I’m just really proud of
the way the kids hung in there,”
Thomas said.
“There was no quit and I
know they’ll take that with
them the rest of their lives,”
Thomas said.

There are currently seven
billion people on the planet
that we call Earth. One sev-
enth of those people are now
Facebook users. This social
network has grown from a
user population of 500 mil-
lion in July to a whopping
one billion monthly active
users now.
You may ask what draws
these people to the site, one
would likely answer the in-
centive of all of your long
time friends being on the
same site at the same time
and, therefore, one would
have the ability to keep in
contact very easily. But, re-
alize this, the average age of
Facebook users today are 22
years old. This means that
500 million of the total users
on Facebook are either 22
or younger. When Facebook
was initiated, the audience
was geared towards college
aged kids. It is now very
common for a 12 year old
pre-teenager to make an ac-
count on Facebook. Also, it
is known that over 3/4 of us-
ers are from countries other
than the United States and
Canada.
The average Facebook
user spends over 400 min-
utes on the site per month.
It is averaged that over a
two year time period one
user would likely gain over
three hundred “friends.” It
is also calculated that eighty
percent of “friend requests”
are accepted. This is clearly
a clue that most users do not
know or have a relationship
with all of their friends.
Some might ask the ques-
tion…Is it even possible
that 1/7 of the population
in the world to be on Face-
book? The people who ask
this question may want to
know that over 87 million
accounts are either fake or
repeat accounts. Although
these accounts may be fake
or repeated, these users are
getting on their accounts
monthly, therefore have
been included in the overall
statistic.
One may believe that
Facebook is only a waste
of time. But one study from
CIO.com states, “A Face-
book user who uses the site
multiple times per day is
43 percent more likely than
other internet users and
more than three times as
likely as non-internet us-
ers to feel that most people
can be trusted.” Trust seems
to be a weird concept when
talking about Facebook, but
this study seems to ring true.
Through all of these sta-
tistics and studies, Mark
Zuckerberg, CEO of Face-
book, seems to still be con-
cerned with the future of
his company. On an inter-
view with the Today Show,
he said, “Helping a billion
people connect is amazing,
humbling and by far the
thing I am most proud of in
my life.” Later he admitted
that the company was in a
tough cycle right now and
the amount the company is
worth is much lower than it
was in the beginning. But
through all of the tough
patches in the company’s
past, Zuckerberg still has a
strong plan for the future of
the company, “Our respon-
sibility as a company is just
to do the best that we can
and build the best products
for people. If we build the
best products, then I think
that we can continue lead-
ing in this space for a long
time.”

Due to this year’s
drought, the price of pork
is projected to go up every-
where in the United States.
With the cost of feed in-
creasing, famers aren’t able
to raise as many pigs. This
year’s shortage could raise
the price of pork.
In July and August of
this year Iowa has received
4.45 inches of rainfall. On
average Iowa gets 6.39
inches of rainfall in July
and August. Iowa also ex-
perienced one of the hottest
Julys since 1955. The heat
and lack of rain combined
drove up the price of feed.
The price of bacon and
ham is projected to go up
in the next year. We are
already seeing evidence of
this increase. Last year’s
price of bacon in August
2011 was $3.98. This year’s
price of bacon is $4.48. Ham
prices are also expected to
go up. For the last fve years,
ham has been 55 cents per
pound. Ham is projected to
be 75 to 80 cents per pound
by next spring.
This summer’s drought
did more than just killed our
lawns and lower river levels,
its affects are also going to
be seen in your grocery bill.
Many owners of the
new iPhone 5 are presum-
ably happy with the new
phone because of its better
and bigger display screen,
lighter and thinner struc-
ture, and a faster processor.
But of course, with any new
product there are going to
be some glitches. While the
new iPhones are being tested
by their owners, they have
taken to the internet to com-
plain about a multitude of is-
sues ranging from things that
are fxable to the unfortunate
fnal product.
The technology world is
nothing if not full of change.
But many Apple users are
displeased at the company’s
decision to use connector
port that’s smaller, called
Lightning, on the iPhone 5
and new iPods. That meant
both a need for new power
cords and that the new prod-
ucts won’t connect with old-
er speaker systems, alarm
clocks and other accessories.
So what’s the fx? A $29
adapter, and even then, the
adapter doesn’t support vid-
eo or the “iPod out” function
for transmitting data from
the devices. A Lightning-to-
USB cable costs $19 and,
according to Apple’s web-
site, it currently has a one
to two week wait time to be
shipped.
One of Apple’s selling
points for the new phone is
that it’s the lightest smart-
phone ever. But yet that’s
one of the complaints, that
it’s the lightest ever. To
some of the users, a phone
without the usual weight
feels suspiciously cheap, al-
most toy like.
There are always going
to be little issues that people
will not like about their new
phone, but most of the time,
we eventually forget about
it. Even though there are a
couple little glitches with
the new iPhone, owners usu-
ally get over it quickly and
they stay happy with the
new phone.

Picture a world without
war. Picture a world where
the opinions of others are
not only heard, but respect-
ed. Imagine a global com-
munity.
The word community,
as written by the Merriam-
Webster Dictionary, is de-
fned as a body of persons
having a common history or
common social, economic,
or political interest. The no-
tion of a global community is
much the same. It is the idea
that people from all over the
world can be brought togeth-
er to interact and freely share
ideas through new advances
in technology. A greater un-
derstanding of a culture or
belief system that was previ-
ously misrepresented or mis-
judged can lead to tolerance
and respect.
However, the driving force
behind this movement is
something that past genera-
tions may say is ruining this
generation: the internet. The
upcoming generation is seen
as electronic zombies. They
seem to only care about the
latest social network and the
newest violent videogame.
Some will say that technol-
ogy is mind-numbing.
In fact, technology is
just the opposite. Social net-
working and sites like You-
Tube encourage new forms
of communication. A child
playing an online video
game can interact with an-
other child halfway across
the world. A video posted by
a Muslim can be viewed by a
Christian in a different coun-
try. An idea shared by a teen-
ager on Twitter can quickly
sweep nations. One person’s
ambition written on his or
her blog can soon go viral.
Scholarly journals have
been published for public
use, classifed information
has become common knowl-
edge—sharing a thought has
never been easier.
Yet, this concept has not
developed overnight. It has
been years in the making.
The idea may have begun
with the frst serious inter-
national exchange programs
after World War II. Ex-
change programs were cre-
ated to encourage the under-
standing and acceptance of
other cultures. Paired with
the idea that ‘world peace’
may not be completely
out of reach, the programs
meant great strides in public
diplomacy.
Finding common ground
is not hard in this new age.
Whenever someone com-
poses a tweet, turns on their
Xbox, posts a video, or up-
dates their status, an idea is
shared, and that idea is out
there for the world to see.
Because of this kind of ex-
posure to different beliefs
and cultures, the upcom-
ing generation has become
a tolerant one. They have
understanding, and the po-
tential to coexist. This is not
only the information age,
but an age of potential.

People are traveling ev-
erywhere in the world. They
are fying around the coun-
try and even the continents.
Throughout the years they
have had to deal with lines
at the airports, delayed air
planes, and the most frus-
trating, fight cancellations.
People have dealt with
problems at the airports for
years because of how con-
venient it is to travel once
you have left the runway.
Within a 21 day period sur-
rounding Christmas of 2011
it was estimated that just
over 43 million travelers
few throughout the United
States, making more than 2
million fiers a day. With-
in these days there were
117,629 fights delayed and
16,422 fights cancelled in
that 21 day period, with
this being over one-third of
fights around the holiday
season according to USA
TODAY.
There has been a lot of
talk about what will happen
in the next few years, such as
whether the fight conditions
will get better or worse. Us-
ing the American Airlines
for example, according to
CNN, pilots have had com-
plaints of broken coffee
pots, holes in seats, torn
pockets on seats, and several
precautionary checks lead-
ing to nothing being wrong.
Many travel agents have
been leading their custom-
ers away from American
Airlines due to the airline
having over 1,000 cancelled
and 12,000 delayed fights in
just the past month. Spokes-
men Bruce Hicks told CNN,
“Clearly, our operation is
nowhere near where we
want it to be, where it has
historically been the kind of
quality operation American
Airlines runs day in and day
out, we are working as hard
as we can to try and miti-
gate this and do all we can
to resolve it. We certainly
understand; we very much
do apologize for any delay
or cancellation that we have
seen.”
Air transportation is one
the fastest ways to travel.
Hopefully, in the next few
years people will be able to
go to an airport and be able
to leave the runway without
having to deal with delays
and cancellations.

Every day we are look-
ing for new ways to help
and better the environ-
ment. The littlest things
can make the greatest
impact, or even the most
unusual things. As we all
start thinking about our
future graduation comes
frst and with that comes a
cap and gown. The newest
collection of Jostens grad-
uation caps and gowns are
now biodegradable.
With about 100 seniors
graduating from Hum-
boldt High School this
year we could make a
difference. Jostens is the
supplier for these items
to most schools around
the U.S. so a great differ-
ence will be seen. Some
schools are going to the
extreme of having a re-
cycling bin outside of the
ceremony for the students
to put their gowns in.
In all of the Elements col-
lects there is a code on the
inside that if entered online
Jostens donates one dollar to
support environmental sus-
tainability. As of December,
2011 Jostens has donated
10,000 dollars through the
Student Give Back Program.
The elements collection
was launched in 2009 and
has taken off from there.
These bio friendly caps and
gowns are made to give
more comfort, and breath-
ability. Not only is the ma-
terial eco friendly but the
zipper teeth are made off
100% recycled polyethylene
terephalate (PET).
Jostens had been supply-
ing high quality caps and
gowns for years and this col-
lection just makes it better.
It’s the smallest thing we can
do to give back and help the
environment and that’s what
they are doing. Just from our
school alone we could give
back 100 dollars from each
one of us entering one code
online.

City of Humboldt - Precincts and Wards
Humboldt County Precincts
By Carolyn Saul Logan
Notices of the closing of
small county churches are not
surprising in today’s media.
Congregations shrink and the
buildings deteriorate. How-
ever, the Hardy Methodist
Church on the grounds of the
Humboldt County Museum is
still very much alive. Its sanc-
Hardy Church a vibrant presence at Humboldt County Museum
tuary welcomes weddings,
baptisms, confirmations and
funerals as well as sing-a-long
of hymns and Christmas car-
ols. The basement is booked
for graduations, wedding an-
niversaries, pie and coffee
during the Fall Fling and quilt
makers. The church is one of
the liveliest buildings at the
museum.
The history of this church
begins almost 150 years ago.
At that time, settlers met for
worship at various homes and
in an old log schoolhouse
known as the Spooner school-
house. “Various circuit riders
conducted the services infre-
quently, and the rest of the
time local people held the ser-
vices.” In 1865, the congrega-
tion was made an appointment
of the Methodist Conference.
For 10 years they continued to
meet regularly at the Spooner
Schoolhouse with pastors
coming from Goldfield.
In September 1875, the
small congregation was be-
ginning to grow, and it was
decided to build a parsonage
to house their own minister.
This was built across the trail
from the J. H. Foley home, two
miles northeast of the present
town of Hardy.
In 1881, the railroad came
through the valley and needed
a station between Goldfield
and Livermore, so Hardy
was laid out. The Methodist
Church was thriving and it was
decided to build in the new
town. The building was com-
pleted in 1882, a date that still
appears on the church.
“People were coming to the
Hardy area who had different
religious backgrounds and
beliefs. These people wanted
to be baptized and join the
church, but some wished to
be baptized by immersion. In
1901, a service was held on the
banks of the Des Moines River
near Foster Bridge.” There the
service of baptism by immer-
sion was conducted for Aaron
Albee. This service was again
held on the river in 1903 for
James Weyer, h is wife Mary
and their three daughters. Hat-
tie Krutsinger was also bap-
tized by immersion in that
year.
The congregation contin-
ued to grow and in 1912, af-
ter many meetings and much
discussion, it was voted to
enlarge the church. It was also
decided to install stained glass
windows, which were ordered
from the Ford Glass Company
in Minneapolis, MN. When
the church was moved from
Hardy to its present location
on the grounds of the Museum,
great care was taken and there
were no cracks or breakages
of these beautiful windows.
The largest and most beauti-
ful of these windows depicts
‘Christ in Gethsemane.’ The
12 smaller windows each have
a symbol from the Bible. Some
of the small windows bear the
names of the families who
dedicated them.”
“Oct. 10, 1965, The Meth-
odist Church, Hardy, IA,
proudly celebrated its 100th
Anniversary. A history of the
church was written and pub-
lished in book form. Mr. and
Mrs. Marshall V. Clancy and
family gave these books to all
who attended the Anniversary
service on that day. The Rev.
C. Wilbur Egeland was the
pastor at this time.”
Recently, the funeral of
Beth Clancy Swan, daugh-
ter of Wilma and Marshall V.
Clancy, was held in the Hardy
Church at the Museum. This
service brought Beth and the
Clancy family full circle to
their home church. Their sup-
port of the Museum, in partic-
ular the Hardy Church and the
Clancy Building, has helped
make the Humboldt County
Museum what it is today—one
of the leading small museums
in Iowa.

LIVERMORE HAS A NEW
ROCK
The City of Livermore has
a new addition to the west en-
trance coming into Livermore.
A new rock entrance sign was
recently purchased and in-
stalled by Team Livermore.
Team Livermore members
poured the concrete base for
the sign to sit on with Bruce
Foth helping to dig the founda-
tion holes. The Stone, which is
about four feet tall, eight feet
wide and eight inches thick
is St. Croix limestone that
came from the Rivard Stone
Quarry in Wisconsin. Allan
Schachtner with Rockreations
of Fort Dodge, did the sign en-
graving. The total project was
approximately $3,000.
City of Livermore Mayor
Robert Connors said that
Livermore is very lucky to
have “Team Livermore” and
says the City of Livermore
wants to commend them for
all their efforts and the projects
that they have donated to and
promoting the City of Liver-
more.
Team Livermore would
like to thank everyone that
comes out and supports all of
their fundraising events. They
would also like you to keep in
mind that their motto is “To
improve the quality of life in
Livermore through the sup-
port of community events, that
bring music, fun, cultural and
social activities, to the great
Livermore area.” A big thank
you to everyone in the com-
munity that helps and supports
the fundraisers!

Margaret Fink, a freshman
of Biola University and resi-
dent of Humboldt, was among
132 students who received the
college’s highest scholarship,
the President’s scholarship,
for the 2012-2013 academic
year. Freshmen are eligible
for the President’s scholarship
- $10,000 per year - if upon
entering the university, they
meet the requirements of the
scholarship. Approximately 10
percent of this year’s incoming
class received this award.
Students are considered for
this scholarship upon admis-
sion to the university based on
their GPA and SAT scores. The
requirements of the scholar-
ship are a GPA of at least 3.10
and a combined SAT score of
1240, both math and English
scores. According to Biola’s
admissions department, the
average recipients of the Presi-
dent’s scholarship have a GPA
of 3.5 and an SAT score of
1400.
At a special luncheon in
honor of the award recipi-
ents, provost and senior vice
president David Nystrom
encouraged students as they
embarked on their academic
careers.
“Take advantage of the
riches here (Biola), the oppor-
tunity for you is unimaginably
expansive. Take hold of it and
live into the unimaginable,”
said Nystrom.
Students must maintain a
GPA of 3.2 to continue to re-
ceive the scholarship the fol-
lowing year.

"South Pacific"
This promises to be a
magnificient evening of enchantment,
fun and historical visions
of the World War II era!
The Humboldt cast is led by Jen Bentz as the hopelessly romantic Nellie Forbush, and Jake Helvick as French planter Emile De Beque singing the
Richard Rodgers classics “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair”, and “Some Enchanted Evening”. James Sobkoweak plays Lt. Joe Cable
who falls in love with islander, Liat (Andra Niles), and delivers the central message of the show in “You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught.” Miranda Peder-
son adds comic relief with the character Bloody Mary who tries to sell souvenirs to the sailors as well as pair her daughter with “saxy” Lt. Cable. Most
fun of all is watching the ensemble of sailors and nurses, led by Sam George as Luther Billis, head of the base’s laundry operation. Sam leads the
talented sailors in a rousing version of “There Is Nothin’ Like A Dame”, and wiggles around in a grass skirt and coconut bra during “Honey Bun.” The
nurses are very busy keeping track of Nellies emotions in “I’m Gonna Wash,” and “I’m In Love With A Wonderful Guy.” They also put on an unforgettable
“Thanksgiving Follies” show for the sailors of the base. Tickets for the show are $6 Adults and $3 Students, and are available in the high school office.
