had agreed to recommend
Rick Weidner, AIA of
Bennington, NE to develop
plans and specications for
the construction of a new jail
and public safety center.
Mellick said that Weidner
has extensive experience in
jail design and has worked
with the County's contracted
jail consultant, John Hansen
of Midwest Construction
Consultants, on numerous
similar projects. The Board
accepted the Committee's
recommendation and

the project cost would not
exceed $4.9 million and that
the bond referendum would
require 60% approval by
voters in order to pass.
Allamakee County
Auditor and Commissioner
of Elections Denise Beyer
said that the deadline for

Kee baseball coach Gene Schultz brings legendary career
to completion with announcement of his retirement
It's been labeled the "end
of an era." But the man it
means the most to calls it "the
beginning of a new chapter."
Gene Schultz, the
legendary coach of Kee
High School baseball for
the past 45 years and the
nation's all-time winningest
high school baseball coach,
had his retirement from that
long-time helm made ofcial
Monday, August 18 with the
acceptance of his letter of
resignation by the Eastern
Allamakee Community
School District Board of
Directors at its regular
monthly meeting. That
retirement brings to a close a
coaching career likely never
to be rivaled with an overall
record of 1,754 wins against
just 398 losses, but also opens
the door to a number of other
possibilities for Schultz and
his family.
"It was time to come to this
decision," Schultz said. "And
it's not because I don't want
to coach baseball anymore,
but more because there are
so many other things that I
want to do and will now have
more time to do. I'm going
to just relax for a while, get
settled into our new home in
La Crescent (MN), our rst
grandchild is coming along
in the near future, and I just
plan to enjoy some quality
time with the years I have
left. I'm also going to try to
gure out what this game
of golf is all about, and that
should certainly keep me on
my toes."
That move to La Crescent,
MN within this past year has
allowed for his wife, Julie,
to have her drive time to
work dwindled signicantly,
something Schultz says is
long overdue for her and
well-deserved. "For 37 years
my wife drove from Lansing
to Gundersen where she
works, and with our move
to La Crescent this past year
I've gotten a small taste of
what she's had to go through
with that drive for the past 37
years," Schultz said. "That
drive for me this summer back
to New Albin, and even all the
way back to Lansing early in
the season because we played
our home games in Lansing
until the eld in New Albin
was ready, certainly wears
on you. And it's probably
time for someone else to take
over and enjoy the program
that has given so much to
me. They say all good things
must come to an end. Well,
it's time for someone else to
experience more good things
with this program."
Although Coach Schultz
did not want to speculate
on who might have that
opportunity, he did say that
a likely place to start looking
would be within the existing
coaching staff. "It's not
going to be up to me, that's
a decision the school district
will be making," he said,
adding that he'd be glad to
provide any input into that
decision if asked.
Bob Wellendorf, a former
assistant coach under Schultz
and Kee High School Athletic
Director, as well as a long-
time friend, says replacement
of a coach like Schultz is not
an enviable position. "That's
a huge role to try and ll,"
Wellendorf said. "It could be
a great opportunity for the
right individual, but it will be
difcult to nd a replacement
with as much dedication and
knowledge of the game. They
threw away that mold after
they made Gene."
Wellendorf said he initially
met the eventual legendary
coach when Schultz rst
came to Lansing in 1969,
and then rst coached under
him in the early 1980s as
a baseball and basketball
assistant before becoming
Kee's athletic director prior
to his own retirement. "What
an amazing opportunity for
me," Wellendorf said. "I
know I would not have ended
up where I did if not for
him. He taught me so much,
his knowledge of baseball,
basketball - all sports, really -
is just incredible."
Wellendorf said his
initial reaction to Schultz's
retirement decision was one
of surprise. "I thought maybe
he would hang in there at
least one more year, I know
he wanted to try and see the
(Shooky Fink) eld project to
completion," he said. "But I
also know that there are other
things he wants to do in life,
and now he'll have more time
to do those things."
Likewise surprised was
another area baseball coach
of legendary status who
sits just behind Schultz on
the nation's all-time career
coaching victories list for
high school baseball. Fifty-
plus-year Decorah High
School baseball coach Dennis
Olejniczak said of Schultz's
decision to retire, "I was
somewhat surprised when
I rst heard and read that
Coach Schultz had announced
his retirement, knowing how
much he loves the game. But
he has certainly earned his
retirement from coaching
baseball. I am honored to
extend my congratulations to
Gene on his retirement."
With Olejniczak's 1,341
career coaching victories
second only to Schultz at the
national level, and likely to
never overtake that record, the
long-time Decorah skipper
has developed a tremendous
amount of respect for his
veteran colleague. "Without
a doubt, Gene has had a
tremendous impact on the
quality of baseball in the
state of Iowa at the high
school level," Olejniczak
commented. "He had a way
of preparing his teams in such
a manner that they would
never beat themselves. You
always had to play some of
A case of legendary proportions ...
Legendary Kee baseball coach Gene Schultz stands
beside a case in his home that holds the baseballs repre-
senting each of his 100-milestone victories prior to career
win number 1,700 recorded early in the 2013 season.
Schultz announced his retirement from his legendary
45-year career at the helm of the Hawk diamond program
last week, completing a career record of 1,754-398.
Betty Troendle inducted into Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame
Betty Troendle of
Allamakee County was
inducted into the 2014 Iowa
4-H Hall of Fame during a
ceremony at the 4-H Exhibits
Building at the Iowa State
Fair in Des Moines Sunday,
August 17. A total of 82
counties participated this
year and 110 inductees
were recognized for their
outstanding service and
dedication to 4-H. Inductees
or their surviving family
members were presented a
certicate by the Iowa 4-H
Foundation as they were
introduced on stage and
honored at a reception that
followed the ceremony.
Betty's contribution to
4-H was widely felt, said
Morgan Heim, Allamakee
County 4-H Youth Co-
Coordinator. "Betty has
taught her children well and
inuenced them to give back
to their communities. Her
hard work, heart of gold, and
willingness to always help out
has inuenced many youth
throughout her 4-H career in
Allamakee County."
Troendles service to the
4-H program emphasizes
the mission of the 4-H Hall
of Fame. She has touched
many lives through her
dedication, encouragement,
commitment, and guidance
to the Allamakee County 4-H
Counties select inductees
for their exceptional work in
contributing to the lives of
4-H members and the overall
4-H program, said Heim.
Many inductees served as
club leaders, youth mentors,
fair superintendents or fair
board members, Iowa State
University Extension county
council members, county
youth council members, fair
judges, nancial supporters,
chaperones or ISU Extension
and Outreach staff members.
The inductees have
demonstrated dedication,
encouragement, commitment
and guidance to Iowas
4-Hers through the years.
This is a wonderful
opportunity for the counties
and state to recognize and
celebrate 4-H volunteers
and staff who are committed
to Iowas youth and the
4-H Youth Development
program, said Chris
Gleason, 4-H youth program
specialist with ISU Extension
and Outreach.

Beatrice Albert
Our beautiful Mother,
Grandmother, and Great-
Grandmother Beatrice
Mary (Pedretti) Albert, 91

loved and grateful children
by her side August 15, 2014
(the Feast of the Assumption)
in Olympia, WA.
A celebration of Beatrices

Michaels Catholic Church,

Avenue SE, Olympia, WA,
followed by a reception at
Pellegrinos Event Center,
5757 Littlerock Rd SW,
Tumwater, WA.
Beatrice (Bea) was born
in Genoa, WI to Stephen and
Mary Ursula Pedretti. She
was the youngest of eight
children and, even though her
mother passed away when
she was ve years old, the
memories she had of a loving
farm family were wonderful.
After graduating from St.
Charles Borromeo Grade
School in Genoa, Beatrice
attended Aquinas High
School in La Crosse, WI.
She quickly distinguished
herself in creative writing
skills, especially in the area
of poetry. Just after the start
of her junior year Beatrices
father took ill and she
returned to Genoa to care
for him and transferred to
Lansing High School just
across the Mississippi River
in Lansing. Upon graduation
from high school, Beatrice
attended the College of
Saint Teresa in Winona, MN.
Beatrice earned a Bachelor of
Arts degree that eventually
allowed her to pursue her
love of teaching.
Beatrice married William
(Bill) Albert June 17, 1946.
This was the start of a caring,
loving partnership that lasted
over 60 years. Beatrice and
Bill lived in Ames while he
nished his college education
at Iowa State and where the
rst of their eight children
was born. Beatrice enjoyed
a successful teaching career
that included Saint Joseph
Grade School in Downers
Grove, IL, Christ the King
Grade School in Richland,
WA, working with special
needs children in the San
Francisco Bay Area, and
teaching in Vietnamese
refugee camps in the
Philippines, before retiring
with Bill in Olympia, WA.
She dearly loved her students
and could name almost all of
them by memory.
Beatrice enjoyed family
gatherings/reunions, RVing,
sewing, making beautiful
quilts, writing cards and
letters, taking long walks,
creating beautiful photo
albums with photos taken
by Bill, and giving all of her
family equal special attention.
She had a deep faith in God
rooted in her Catholic faith.
Beatrice was the very best
wife, mother, grandparent

Samaritan Center in Waukon.
Funeral services were held
Saturday, August 23 at St.
Paul Evangelical Lutheran
Church in McGregor,
with Pastor Andrew Preus
ofciating. Burial was at East
Paint Creek Synod Cemetery,
Ina Karen Pederson was
the daughter of Dr. Jacob
and Ella (Johnson) Deal.
She was born at the farm
home December 8, 1924.
The farm, known then as the
Jake Deal 80, was located one
mile north of Rossville. As a
young girl, Ina made the walk
to and from the farm to attend
the rst and second grades at
the Rossville School which
she loved.
In 1934, after the death
of her father, her mother
moved Ina, her sister and two
brothers to live in Waterville.
Ina attended school there
through the ninth grade and
later completed her schooling
earning her Iowa G.E.D.
When a teenager, Ina met
the love of her life, Amos
Pederson. They hit it off
becoming good at skating
at the popular Pavilion at
Waterville. They married
December 21, 1941 at a
Lutheran Parsonage in
Decorah - a marriage and love
lasting 71 years-plus. For a
time they lived in Newton
and Ypsilanti, MI, and then
moved back to Waterville
where they settled in and
raised their four children.
In 1948 they purchased
Inas grandparents' house
in Waterville, a home they
shared for over 64 years. In
her 80s, Ina continued to
care for Amos at home until
his passing away March 11,
Ina devoted her life to
being a wife and mother,
spending many years taking
care of the family and seeing
that the children were brought
up in the Christian faith. Ina
was employed at Northern
Engraving in Waukon for 18
years, retiring in 1987.
Ina was baptized and
conrmed at the East Paint
Creek Synod Lutheran
Church. Ina was a faithful
member there and was active
for many years in the Ladies
Aid, Altar Guild and with
teaching Saturday school and
Bible school. In 2010 Ina and
Amos became members of
St. Pauls Lutheran Church in
McGregor and were thankful
and felt blessed to be a part of
Gods family there.
Traveling was a special
part of Inas life with
memories of taking the train
from Waterville to Chicago,
traveling by bus to Michigan
along with a quick trip into
Canada as a young girl. Ina
and Amos enjoyed traveling
and seeing family, whether
by car, setting up camp in
the Black Hills and Rockies,
by pick-up and camper or by
Amtrak. Many trips to spend
time with family in central
Iowa also brought them good

Junior Miss Corn Days court ...
Bailey Shafer (center in above photo), daughter of Bill and Beth Shafer of Waukon,
was crowned Junior Miss Corn Days at the ceremony held Friday, August 15 as part of
Waukon Corn Days 2014. Also competing for this year's crown were Taylor Peterson
(at left), daughter of Jesse and Amanda Peterson of Waukon, and Allie Bieber (at right),
daughter of Ed and Amy Bieber of Waukon. A major factor in the contest judging was
an essay each contestant was required to submit entitled "What It Means To Me To Live
In Allamakee County." Shafer's winning essay reads as follows:
"It means a lot to me to be a resident of Allamakee County. I have been to many other places, but
Allamakee has been by far the best!
One thing that means a lot to me are the people. One day my cousin and I were coming home from
our grandparents' house and two people stopped to say "hi". He asked me how everybody knew me and
I said everybody knows everybody around here! It's also really nice when you go to the grocery store
to get one thing and you end up staying there longer than you expected talking to someone!
Living in Allamakee County means I can enjoy four different seasons. Each season brings different
things. During the winter months, there's nothing better than going sledding at the fairgrounds on a
snowy day. During Spring I love to go mushroom hunting at the family farm. Summer brings warmer
weather and vegetables fresh from our garden. Nothing is better than biting into that rst ear of
Allamakee grown sweet corn! Fall brings the spectacular landscape of leaves changing color. Leaves
aren't only for looking, they're fun to jump in too!
Living in Allamakee County means you can go to or see many beautiful places. My favorite places
in Allamakee are near or on the Mississippi River and at our family's farm. The Mississippi is great
because you see many Eagles soaring around. I also enjoy intertubing behind our boat. At the farm I
enjoy watching wildlife, especially deer, four-wheeling with my dad, creek stomping, and climbing on
It means so much to me to be able to call Allamakee County my home. It isn't just one thing that
makes this county of ours great, but many different things!

use a format of questions and
student data to allow teachers
to help students at all levels.
By systematically looking
at where kids are using data

ACSD Superintendent
David Herold commented,
The school administration
is very proud to share these
scores with the community.
The ACT exam is one nation-
al measure that compares our
students with others through-
out the nation taking the same
exam. This is a true indicator
of how we compare with our
state and the nation. Iowa is
traditionally one of the top
achieving states in the nation
for ACT scores, so the fact
that our students ranked high-
er than the state average is a
true indicator of this achieve-
ment. These scores show that
students who graduate from
the Allamakee CSD are pre-
pared and ready to take on
the rigors of college and be-
yond. These scores also show
the commitment of the Board
of Education, staff, students,
and parents in preparing these
kids for college.

Farm Families and the
Affordable Care Act
Considering the high cost
of health insurance, farm
families should become
familiar with changes brought
about by the Affordable Care
Act. Iowa State University
Extension and Outreach
human sciences specialists
in family nance discuss the
implications for farm families
in the August issue of Ag
Decision Maker.
For the farm community
and the public at large, a
great deal of confusion
has surrounded the roll-
out of the Affordable Care
Act. Uncertainties remain
in terms of the costs and
benets associated with
its implementation, said
Suzanne Bartholomae.
However, many of the new
provisions of the ACA may
address some of the issues
faced by farm families when
it comes to health coverage.
The health insurance
consumption patterns of
Iowa farmers differ from the
population at large, USDA
research shows. Iowa farm
operators tend to have greater
rates of insurance coverage
than the general population,
partially because of the
dangerous nature of farming.
To get health insurance
coverage, family members
often take off-farm jobs.
Farmers use health
insurance to protect their
farms from risk, and many
farm operations support
multiple farm families,
added Susan Taylor.
Bartholomae and Taylor
examine the Health Insurance
Marketplace, essential
benets, tax credits and
cost-sharing options. See
the complete story in the Ag
Decision Maker newsletter at
The end of summer and
the start of a new school year
is an exciting time for most
children. But for some, the
beginning of school could
reveal a dark secret when
signs of abuse and neglect
these children have suffered
over the summer are noticed
by teachers, staff and other
Because children
are subject to less adult
supervision over the summer,
its not uncommon for reports
of suspected abuse and
neglect to spike at the start of
the school year, said Kerry
Brennan, CASA Program
Many of the children who
are conrmed as victims are
removed from their homes
and placed into foster care
often far from their friends,
families and schools. CASA
(Court Appointed Special
Advocates) volunteers from
CASA are specially screened
and trained to speak up for
abused and neglected children
who, through no fault of their
own, end up in the foster care
Being uprooted from
their homes and families is
scary for these children. We
at CASA want to make sure
that they do not get lost in
the overburdened foster care
system, Brennan said. For
that reason, we need more
people in our community to
speak up and make sure these
childrens voices are heard.
Beginning of school year
often reveals signs of
child abuse and neglect
We want to help ensure that
their stay in foster care is
as short as possible and that
they are placed in safe, loving
homes quickly so they can
begin to heal.
There are more children in
the child protection system in
northeast Iowa than there are
CASA volunteers to advocate
for their best interests.
Too many children are
forced to go through the
chaos of moving through
the child protection system
alone, Brennan said. CASA
needs more volunteers to step
up and be a voice for children
who desperately need them.
CASA volunteers
advocate for childrens needs
in court and in the child
welfare system. They help
them through their struggles
in foster care or relative
placement. Their number one
goal is to help the children
nd safe, loving families.
We need more dedicated
CASA volunteers to walk
with children every step
of the way and ensure that
they are placed into safe,
permanent homes as quickly
as possible, Brennan said.
This school year, become
a CASA volunteer and help
children in need nd safe,
permanent homes. For more

Student eligibility guidelines
for free and reduced-price
meals recently announced
The policy for free and reduced-price school meals for chil-
dren who are unable to pay the full price of meals has been
released by the Iowa Department of Education. The meals are
served through the National School Lunch Program, School
Breakfast Program and the Afterschool Care Snack Program.
State and local ofcials have adopted family size and income
criteria for determining eligibility (see chart below).
Households may apply for free or reduced-price meal bene-
ts one of four ways:
Students from households whose income is at or below the
levels shown in the chart below are eligible for reduced-price
meals or for free meals. All children in a household may be
listed on one application, which then can be returned to any
one of the children's schools.
Students from Food Assistance households and children
who receive benets under the Family Investment Program
(FIP) are eligible for free meals. Most children from Food As-
sistance and FIP households will qualify for free meals au-
tomatically. These households will be notied of benets in
letters from their children's schools. Households that receive
a letter from the school district need to do nothing more to
ensure their children receive free meals.
Some Food Assistance and FIP households will receive
letters from the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS).
Children listed in the letters will qualify for free meals, but
parents must rst take these letters to the children's schools.
Food Assistance or FIP households that receive benets
but do not receive a letter from DHS must apply for free school
meals on behalf of their children.
Only complete applications will be approved by schools.
Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.
If a family member becomes unemployed, the family should
contact the school to complete an application.
Foster children are eligible for free meal benets. Some fos-
ter children will qualify for free meals automatically through
the State Direct Certication process, and their host families
will be notied of these benets. Families that are notied
need to do nothing more to ensure their children receive free
meals. Families with live-in foster children who are not noti-
ed but wish to apply for free meals will nd instructions on
the application form. Participants in the Special Supplement
Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals based on a
completed application.
Households with children who are enrolled in the Head
Start/Even Start Program or the Migrant Education Program
or who are considered homeless or runaway by the school dis-
trict's homeless liaison should contact the school for assistance
with benets. Individuals who are dissatised with a ruling by
school ofcials can formally appeal, either orally or in writing,
to the school's designated hearing ofcial. The policy state-
ment on le at the school contains an outline of the hearing
procedure. School ofcials may verify the information in the
application and that deliberate misrepresentation of informa-
tion may subject the applicant to prosecution under applicable
state and federal criminal statutes. Households should contact
their local schools for more information.

years. West Nile cases in
Iowa are up 400 percent
compared to previous years,
up from nine cases in 2011 to
44 cases in 2013, according
to the Iowa Department of
Public Health.
In addition, the report says
increased levels of carbon

In addition, mild winters
in parts of the U.S. mean
temperatures arent getting
cold enough to kill ticks

Shah said it is likely the
problem will get worse before
it gets better and suggested
in the near future the U.S.
may be looking at other
mosquito-borne illnesses

rivalry and the tradition of
good baseball in the Kee
High School communities to
I expect that the Lansing
and New Albin communities
will continue to want to carry
on the tradition of Kee High
baseball, he said. Its been
a long-standing tradition in
those communities, and
Coach Schultz has certainly
done his share in establishing
that tradition and keeping it
foremost in the community.
When I think of the commu-
nities of Lansing and New
Albin, I think of two things -
shing and baseball!
When asked what it is that
allows for coaches like him-
self and Schultz to not only
remain in their respective po-
sitions for so many years, but
to also experience the kind of
success that has lofted them
to the nations top two coach-
ing victory totals, Olenjiczak
replied, First and foremost,
a love of the game, and with-
in that the challenge that the
game of baseball provides.
Its not an easy game to play,
skill-wise, but coaches like
Gene and myself know that
its probably even tougher
mentally to play the game of
baseball, than physically.
Secondly, an apprecia-
tion for the kids who play
the game for you. If you ha-
vent loved the kids who take
the eld for you, then youll
never stay at it. What a treat
it is for coaches like us to be
able to coach the sons of fa-
thers who also played for us,
and to be rewarded for all the
hard work these kids have put
in with the kind of success a
program like Kee High has
had. Im sure Gene is just like
me in that he never anticipat-
ed staying in the game, and
especially in one place, for
so long, but, again, that goes
back to the love of the game,
the players who take the eld
for you, and the communities
that support you.

Kee volleyball team returns six letterwinners for 2014 season
The 2014 Kee volleyball
team will return six varsity
letterwinners from a squad
last season that nished with
an 8-18 overall record, in-
cluding a 10th-place Upper
Iowa Conference record of
2-7. That mix of returning
varsity experience will com-
bine with some young new-
comers to hopefully make for
a formidable Hawk line-up
throughout the year, accord-
ing to Coach Rich Ellis.
Our biggest key will be
team continuity, Coach El-
lis said. The girls will need
to learn how to play together
and be willing to play where
the team needs them the most.
We will have a few girls play-
ing new positions this year
and they are going to need to
accept their new role in order
for us to be successful.
That veteran half dozen
includes the senior foursome
of Sadie Hill, Valerie Mey-
er, Nicole Vinson and Molly
Walleser, as well as the junior
tandem of Mikayla Gavin and
Erin Rud. Although most sta-
tistical categories last season
were topped by seniors now
lost to graduation, Meyer,
Gavin and Walleser do re-
turn with the second- through
fourth-best kill totals, re-
spectively, from last season,
with Gavin and Meyer also
bringing back Kees top two
blocking totals and Walles-
er returning with the teams
third-best service ace total
and fourth-best serving per-
centage, all behind senior
leadership from last year.
The newcomers being
looked to this year may be
new to the varsity volleyball
court, but much like Meyer,
Walleser and Vinson are cer-
tainly not new to the varsity
level of competition, and
some signicant success at
that level. Our biggest weak-
ness will be youth and inexpe-
rience, Coach Ellis explains.
We only have three girls in
Molly, Val and Mikayla that
saw signicant time last year
and we will have three fresh-
men rotating in and out of
the line-up. However, two of
those freshmen are just com-
ing off a state softball appear-
ance, so they should be able
to handle the mental part of
the varsity game.
Kendra Cooper and Chloe
Severson make up that fresh-
man state softball tandem
referred to by Coach Ellis.
Along with that high level
of success at a high level of
varsity competition, those
two also join Gavin in mea-
suring 510 tall, with Meyer
and Walleser each up there as
well at 59, creating a great
deal of optimism for Coach
Our biggest strength
will be our size up front, he
said. Our shortest front row
player this year will be 59.
Combine that size with some
athleticism, and we should be
very strong up front.
A somewhat upperclass-
man newcomer will also be
looked to for signicant con-
tributions this season, as ju-
nior Lilly Winters will take
the court for the Hawks for
the rst time this season after
spending last school year in
Italy. We will be looking for
leadership from Lilly Win-
ters, Coach Ellis comment-
ed. She is a solid player who
will be a great addition to our
Mixing all those ingredi-
ents of veteran experience,
height, athleticism and other
leadership possibilities will
hopefully help overcome
the graduation loss of the
main statistical and overall
leadership from last years
squad. We have three rath-
er large holes to ll, Coach
Ellis remarked. We lost El-
lie Heiderscheit and Kaylee
Darling, both who have been
playing varsity for four years.
We also lost our setter from
last year with Alivia Winters
graduating. These are big
shoes to ll, but so far, we
are doing a good job lling
Coach Ellis can see that
the mixing of those ingre-
dients has already started to
produce some positive results
for the Hawks so far in this
seasons early going. I am
very pleased with the effort in
practice so far, he noted. A
couple of the upperclassmen
have come to me and told me
that we are going to be bet-
ter than they thought we were
going to be. I attribute this to
the hard work they are putting
With the separating of the
Upper Iowa Conference into
a bigger school division and
smaller school division this
season, Coach Ellis likes his
teams chances of playing
their way to the top of their
small school division. But
he still sees some of the tra-
ditional larger schools as the
overall league favorites again
this season.
Our goal is to nish on
the top of our division this
year, and I feel that we have
a very good shot at that, he
said. I think South Winn,
North Fayette Valley, Clayton
Ridge and Turkey Valley will
be ghting for the top spot.
However, after that there will
be a dog ght for the remain-
ing spots. One of the remain-
ing teams could knock off
one of the top four to crack a
spot up there.
Kees quest of achieving
this seasons goals is sched-
uled to get underway this
Thursday, August 28 with
a home double dual against
Seneca, WI and De Soto, WI.
The Hawks will get their rst
crack at Upper Iowa Con-
ference action September 4
at Turkey Valley in another
scheduled double dual that
also involves New Hampton.

The 2014 Waukon girls golf
team elded an overall young
squad that saw several different
players take leadership roles in
the Indians' nal meet results
throughout the season. The
Tribe lady linksters competed
against some strong competition
in addition to Mother Nature
this season, as a handful of
meets were either rescheduled
or canceled due to wet or wintry
weather. The Lady Indians
ultimately ended their season
with just a single dual meet
victory over Oelwein, a team
they also nished in front of in
placing sixth in the Northeast
Iowa Conference Tournament
before wrapping up their season
with an eighth-place nish at
their Class 3A First Round
Regional Tournament.
Just two seniors were the
upperclassmen leaders for
this year's squad, as Haylee
Rathbone and Taylor Sholes
wrapped up their high school
careers with completion of
this season. The Indians had
anywhere from a freshman to
a junior leading them on the
course in this season's nal
competition results, making
optimism run high for next
season's returnees.

Thank You
Best of Luck
to This Years
Two Seniors!

The season preview articles for Waukon
boys and girls cross country will appear in
next weeks edition of The Standard
tory of his career at the start of
the 2013 season, Schultz gave
a great deal of credit for the
success he has experienced to
the baseball foundation laid
out by his unofcial assis-
tant coach, Harris Shooky
Fink, within the little league
and school-aged kids in New
Albin. Hed throw batting
practice or hit ground balls
to kids as soon as they were
big enough to keep a glove
on their hand or lift a bat,
Schultz remarked in his pre-
1,700 wins reection.
Schultz further declared
that New Albins baseball
success also fueled a rival-
ry-like similar result in near-
by Lansing, further enhancing
the resources he has drawn
from during his 45-year ten-
ure at the Kee baseball helm.
Schultz has admitted that its
that perceived rivalry, along
with the combining of St.
George and Kee high schools
in Lansing, that helped jump
start his career early on, be-
ginning with his greatest
memory of his 1973 team
that won him his rst-ever
state championship with an
undefeated season record of
48-0 in the rst season that
both the St. George and Kee
students were combined into
one school and on one team.
That 1973 state title was
the rst of a still existing
state of Iowa record nine
summer state championships
for Schultz, a number that
no other coach has equaled
and that only Davenport As-
sumption has equaled as a
program, that happening at
the end of this recently com-
pleted 2014 season. Addition-
al Iowa high school baseball
records still intact for Coach
Schultz include 19 summer
state tournament appearanc-
es resulting in a 32-10 state
tournament record, with 16
of those trips resulting in the
Hawks playing their way into
the state championship game,
including their most recent
Class 1A State Runner-Up
nish in 2011 and their most
recent state championship in
2005. Schultz also coached
Kee to four state champi-
onship game appearances
during Iowas fall baseball
season, winning two more ti-
tles in 1977 and 1978 before
the fall season was halted.
Nearly half of those sum-
mer state championships
make for another of Schul-
tzs greatest highlights, as
his Hawks won four consec-
utive titles from 1989-1992,
with Kee pitcher Kip Peters
still being the only Iowa high
school player to ever record
four state championship
pitching victories. I dont
think thats something that
will ever be equaled, and I
doubt that it ever has in the
nation and maybe even the
world, Schultz said of Pe-
ters four consecutive state
championship pitching tri-
When reecting on their
own experiences just over a
year ago when Coach Schultz
was approaching his 1,700-
win milestone, Peters is
among the many former Kee
players who used such phras-
es as mentally ready, fun-
damentals and teamwork
when describing what they
felt was Coach Schultzs keys
to the success that he has ex-
perienced with his teams over
the years. But, beyond their
playing experiences, most all
also turned similar phrases,
such as he believed in me,
he treated you with the re-
spect you earned, and he
was strict, but he was fair,
when asked how their former
coach impacted their lives be-
yond baseball.
Wellendorf echoed those
same sentiments as some-
thing he witnessed between
Schultz and his players while
serving as his assistant and
then as Kees athletic direc-
tor. They respected him for
who he was and what he ex-
pected from them, Wellen-
dorf said of how Schultzs
players often responded to
him. They understood that
he demanded discipline, but
he did it in a way that always
seemed to bring the best out
of each player. In many cas-
es, he seemed like a god to
Additionally, from both his
former assistant coaching and
athletic director positions,
Wellendorf also recalls Schul-
tzs demanding but fair adher-
ence to scheduling games for
his team. Gene always liked
to play a 40-game schedule,
Wellendorf recalls. I remem-
ber one year we qualied for
the State Tournament, but we
had only been able to play 38
games during the regular sea-
son because of weather can-
cellations. Well, on the way
to the State Tournament, we
had to stop in Oelwein just
to play another game. But, he
was always easy to work with
because he would play pretty
much any team pretty much
any time, especially when
it came to making up games
or replacing games that had
been cancelled.
Wellendorf also remem-
bers, with a chuckle, one of
the most humorous conversa-
tions he ever had with Schul-
tz. I think it was the late 80s,
we had to play St. Ansgar in
a substate game, Wellen-
dorf relayed with a smile in
his voice. Gene was going
on about how he hated play-
ing these parochial schools,
and I looked at him and said,
Gene, St. Ansgar is the name
of the town, its not a Catholic
No matter the opponent,
parochial school or public
school, large or small, Wel-
lendorf says Schultz was al-
ways known for having his
teams ready to play against
anyone. They may get beat
by a better team, but they were
never going to beat them-
selves with errors or because
they couldnt throw strikes,
Wellendorf said. Thats how
Gene always prepared his
teams, being fundamentally
sound and mentally ready to
face whatever situation was
thrown at them.
In his reective/deective
manner, Schultz is always
quick to point the success n-
ger right back at the players
who took the eld for him.
Ive been fortunate to have
a tremendous number of kids
who have made the commit-
ment to play the great game
of baseball like I thought it
should be played, he shared.
One of the most gratifying
things for me is when I see
my former players and they
make comments like I sure
wish I could put the uniform
on and play for you again.
That is the greatest success
I could ever hope to accom-
Its been a great 45 years,
and I would like to thank ev-
eryone who has ever been
involved that has helped
our baseball program real-
ize the kind of success that
weve had, Schultz nalized.
Thats everyone from the
school system, the parents,
the players, the community,
its all been instrumental in
making Kee High baseball
what its become. Im very
thankful for having been
along for the ride!

Waukon football team looks to continue recent string of play-off success in 2014 season
Waukon volleyball team returns ve letterwinners for 2014 campaign
The 2014 Waukon foot-
ball team returns 23 varsity
letterwinners from the most
successful season in program
history last fall, an historic
campaign that saw the Indi-
ans play to a Class 2A State
Runner-Up nish and rewrite
a number of school records
in the process. While a great
deal of key contributors to
last seasons success moved
on with graduation this past
May, including four players
participating in Division I
programs at UNI, Iowa and
Oregon State, second-year
Waukon head coach Chad
Beermann says there cer-
tainly isnt any sort of one-
and-done mentality when it
comes to wanting to continue
the kind of success the pro-
gram has developed over the
last couple seasons.
We know we graduat-
ed one of the most honored
classes in school history,
Coach Beermann said. We
also know the cupboard is
not bare. We have addressed
the fact we have one of the
toughest schedules in 2A, and
many of those teams are an-
ticipating a drop-off from our
kids. We will have a bit of a
target on our backs.
Aside from what other
teams may think coming into
this season, Coach Beermann
and his charges also know
what they are capable of, set-
ting their sights on goals that
will continue to maintain and
build upon back-to-back sea-
sons where the Indians were
Class 2A State Quarternal-
ists in 2012 and State Run-
ners-Up last season.
We would like to make
the play-offs for the third
consecutive season, the sec-
ond-year Indian head coach
said. A goal each week is
to rate ourselves against the
team we can be. If we can play
to potential, we should have a
punchers chance against ev-
eryone on our schedule.
That schedule will include
a considerably different over-
all look, but also include a bit
of familiarity from past expe-
rience. Remaining in the Indi-
ans Class 2A District 3 with
them from last season will be
the spectrum of district cham-
pion New Hampton and dis-
trict last-place nisher Water-
loo Columbus, while recent
familiar play-off foes Dy-
ersville Beckman and Cen-
ter Point-Urbana also make
their way into District 3 this
season. North Fayette Valley
will move up from a Class
1A State Seminalist nish
last season, while another
fellow Northeast Iowa Con-
ference (NEIC) school, Oel-
wein, will drop down from
Class 3A. The Tribes three
non-district games to begin
the season will also feature a
The 2014 Waukon vol-
leyball team will look to
improve on a 9-25-4 overall
record posted by last years
squad in its rst year under
the guidance of head coach
Peyton Wacker. Now in her
second year at the helm and
newly married, Coach Pey-
ton Lapel will see the return
of ve varsity letterwinners
from last years crew that
also nished sixth in the nal
Northeast Iowa Conference
(NEIC) standings with a 1-6
record, along with a large
group of 10 seniors that will
make up a majority of this
falls 14 team members in this
seasons early-going.
Four of those ve return-
ing letterwinners also head-
line that large senior class,
including two-year letterwin-
ners Allie Schwartz and Jack-
ie Welch and rst-year let-
terwinners Katelyn Kolsrud
and Thea Meyer. Sophomore
Regan Wasson rounds out the
list of returning letterwinners
from last season, making
considerable contributions
and gaining valuable experi-
great deal of familiarity,
as another pair of NEIC
schools, Class 3A State
Play-Off qualiers Dec-
orah and Crestwood, and
Class 1A Quarternalist
South Winneshiek make
up a considerable trio of
non-district match-ups to
start the Indians season.
Seven of our nine op-
ponents this season are
play-off teams from last
year, Coach Beermann
observed. We should
have some great games.
When the district came
out this spring, I think
the consensus was it was
a two-horse race between
North Fayette Valley and
New Hampton based on
returning players. New
Hampton has had a sig-
nicant injury, and Dy-
ersville Beckman and
Waterloo Columbus
each have new coaches.
I would say this years
four play-off spots are
really up in the air, with
North Fayette Valley, New
Hampton, Center Point-Ur-
bana, Beckman and Waukon
all having earned berths last
The Indians postseason
and overall success last sea-
son not only allowed this
falls returning letterwinners
to enjoy that historic experi-
ence, but also allowed for a
vast majority of them to build
up considerable game expe-
rience due to lopsided scores
and the extension of the sea-
son well beyond just the reg-
ular schedule. This seasons
23 returning letterwinners in-
clude seniors Adam Benzing,
Nick Bieber, Zach Bieber,
Jamie Byrnes, Brennan Frick,
Travis Herman, Michael
Howe, Drake Jensen, Mar-
shall Lyons, Jacob Ronan,
Landon Sivesind and Brock
Waters, as well as juniors Joe
Frieden, Dennis Gaunitz, Ha-
den Hammel, Peyton Hesse,
Austin Hogan, Nick Johnson,
Chris Miller, Dawston Re-
gan, Michael Schulte, Colin
Steiber and Wyatt Wille.
These players really
beneted from the addition-
al month of practice we had
last year due to the play-off
run, Coach Beermann said.
Many played big roles on
ence as a middle hitter for the
Tribe as just a freshman last
Coach Lapel lists those ve
returning letterwinners and
great team chemistry as the
greatest strengths of this sea-
sons team. Those strengths
will be combined with what
she sees as this years keys
to a successful season - team
speed and intelligence - to
help overcome the teams
overall lack of height at the
net this season.
We lack height, but I be-
lieve we will make up for that
with our quickness and smart
playing, Coach Lapel said.
I can anticipate strong lead-
ership from all of the girls.
Thus far, they have all shown
great enthusiasm for their
team and the sport.
Within that returning var-
sity letterwinning leadership
also comes a considerable
amount of statistical leader-
ship from last season. De-
spite the graduation of eight
seniors from last falls squad,
each of this seasons return-
ing veterans brings back with
the eld, and the rest contrib-
uted more in our practices.
Beermann also says ju-
niors Sean Byrnes, Adam
Drew and Pat Mahr will all
play roles this year in helping
ll holes left by graduation on
both the offensive and defen-
sive lines. We lost over 90%
of our total offense from last

Headlining the replace-
ment of that mass exodus of

be All-State senior defensive
back Jake Ronan, who, in ad-
dition to leading the Indians
with eight interceptions last

9.7 yards per carry average on
26 carries last season and the
teams second-best receiving
totals of 29 catches for 385

Fellow seniors and All-Dis-
trict players Marshall Ly-

return with receiving and
rushing yardage totals hov-
ering around 100 yards from

It will be that veteran ex-
perience that will be looked
to in pursuit of this seasons
goals. Develop a team of
strong competitors, and have
fun and improve throughout
the season to advance in the
postseason, Coach Lapel
listed as this seasons desired
The second-year head
coach also looks for an im-
provement in where her team
will nish in the nal North-
east Iowa Conference stand-
ings in comparison to last
season. I think we have the
potential to place third in the
conference, she explained.
Looking at last years re-
sults, the couple matches
that we lost that were tight
matches could go either way
this year. I think these girls
are very determined and ded-
icated to make that goal and
improvement happen.
Prior to beginning that pur-
suit of NEIC improvement,
the Indians will have some
non-conference tune-ups to
start this seasons schedule,
including their season-open-
ing Mabel-Canton Tourna-
ment this Saturday, August
30. Non-conference matches
will be played at Postville,
Tuesday, September 2, and
at MFL/MarMac, Monday,
September 8, before the Indi-
ans open both their home and
NEIC season Tuesday, Sep-
tember 9 against Decorah.
While we do not have
the sort of talent that draws
Division I coaches this year,
we really have a nice dis-
tribution of talent, Coach
Beermann outlined. Where
last year the majority of our
yards and points came from
two players (University of
Northern Iowa recruit Marcus
Weymiller and University of
Iowa recruit Parker Hesse),
this year the runs and catches
will be spread through sev-
en or eight. Also, we have
some good linemen who have
worked very hard to get big-
ger and stronger.
One advantage this sea-
sons team will have is the
depth and experience that
this years team allows. This
season, a goal is to Two Pla-
toon as much as possible,
Coach Beermann explained.
We feel we have enough
depth to play the majority of
our kids one way. This will
help keep the kids fresh. The
development of the junior
class is what gives us depth
this year.
In addition to depth, the
second-year coach also sees
promise from upperclassmen
leadership displayed early in
the season, as well as some
things that took place in the
off-season. The seniors are
stepping into their leadership
role, he said. In addition,
we had good numbers in the
weight room and at speed
camp this summer.
The fruits of that off-sea-
son and pre-season prepara-
tion will soon be realized, as
the Indians will begin their
2014 schedule this Friday,
August 29 at home against
Class 1A State Quarternal-
ist South Winneshiek. Our
starters need to be ready right
away, as we open the sea-
son with ve straight play-
off teams from last season,
Coach Beermann said.

Nine returning letterwinners bolster Kee football hopes for 2014 campaign
The Kee football team will
return nine varsity letterwin-
ners for its 2014 campaign
from a team that played to
a 6-4 overall record and an
Eight-Player District 4 run-
ner-up nish with a 6-1 mark
against district opponents
last season. Leading the way
within that experienced var-
sity nucleus will be eight se-
niors who each contributed
to last seasons success on a
team that lost just three se-
niors to graduation.
Having eight seniors that
have been through multiple
seasons at the varsity level
is a big advantage that we
havent had for awhile, sec-
ond-year Kee head football
coach Chad Winters said. I
expect our upperclassmen to
show our younger kids how
we do things on a daily basis.
They set the tone for practice
every day in how we prepare
for the games.
Setting that tone for this
years team will be the afore-
mentioned eight letterwin-
ning seniors, including Nick
Howe, Ryan Kuhn, Hunter
Otto, Dylon Peterson, Mar-
quise Phillips, David Rich-
ards, Craig Sand and Andrew
Weber, as well as sophomore
Clay Olson. Among that
list of returnees will be six
All-District performers, led
by Peterson as a First Team
All-District Defensive Utili-
ty selection, although he was
also the Hawks signal caller
and second-leading rusher on
offense last season. Phillips,
Kuhn and Weber each re-
ceived Second Team All-Dis-
trict accolades, with Sand and
Olson earning All-District
Honorable Mention.
That experienced and dec-
orated crew will pace a team
made up of 28 players from
the freshman through senior
ranks this season, a total team
number that still causes a bit
of unrest with Coach Winters
in regard to his teams overall
depth. Depth continues to be
a concern, he said. We need
some inexperienced guys to
step up and show that they
have the ability and desire to
help out at the varsity level.
With 16 underclassmen par-
ticipating, it will be good to
see some of the younger guys
step up and take charge of the
JV team as well.
With those depth concerns
looming, Coach Winters says
that keeping his team healthy
will be a key factor in the de-
gree of success experienced
this season. Staying healthy
is a priority during pre-sea-
son and non-district games,
he said, adding that there
are a number of factors in-
volved in that team wellness
approach. The boys have to
be willing to put in the extra
time needed to be successful;
from lifting weights, to taking
care of their bodies, to being
prepared by watching lm.
Staying healthy, especially
in the pre-season and during
Kees non-district sched-
ule early in the season, will
have a direct impact on what
Coach Winters sees as this
years main goals. A District
Championship and a play-off
win are the top two goals this
year, he said.
Kees District 4 will look
much the same this season,
with the exception of peren-
nial contender Easton Valley
now moving up to Class A
competition and Turkey Val-
ley moving down into the
Eight-Player classication
after a 7-4 season last year
that saw them advance into
the second round of the Class
A State Play-Offs. Both Cen-
tral Elkader and Springville
also return from State Play-
Off qualifying seasons last
fall, both having their sea-
sons ended by eventual
Eight-Player champion Don
Bosco, although Springville
graduated a considerable
senior class this past May,
including All-Stater and Uni-
versity of Northern Iowa re-
cruit Elias Nissen.
Central Elkader appears
to be the front-runner, as they
return a lot from their play-off
team last year, Coach Win-
ters speculated. West Cen-
tral, Turkey Valley and Mid-
land will be battling it out for
the other play-off positions.
I think we are extremely
competitive with all of those
teams and a lot will hinge on
who stays healthy and plays
well that particu-
lar night.
Even though
the Hawks lost
just three seniors
to graduation
from last sea-
sons District 4
runner-up team,
that trio included
the All-State pair
of Jameson Pe-
terson and Nick
Gavin. Peterson
headlined Kees

tive season gain-
ing over 1,300

er position. Gavin

Major changes are coming in 2014 that bring the high school game more in line
with what we see on Saturdays. For example:
Targeting is now part of the high school game, without the video review, and
is described as, taking aim with the helmet, forearm, hand, elbow or shoulder to
initiate contact above the shoulders. The call is illegal personal contact with a
15-yard penalty, and if agrant can result in an ejection.
Most common calls come via a defensive back breaking up a pass play with
a high hit with the forearm or helmet to the receivers head. Another frequent
call is a pass-rushing defensive lineman striking the quarterback in the head.
Major strides to improve the game are evident. Keep the head out of the
game and Heads-up Football campaigns are making a difference, as it is
noticeable on the eld. Keep it up, coaches!
The Defenseless Player: A player who is especially vulnerable to injury due
to their physical position and focus of concentration. The penalty is the same as
with targeting, including the possibility of an ejection if agrant.
Typical calls are violent blocks on defenders pursuing reverse plays, or
crack-back type blocks where the player is blindsided as they concentrate
on the ball carrier.
Others are hits on the quarterback after releasing a pass, on a ball carrier
being held up stopping their forward progress, or a player lying on the
Ofcials judgment will come into play as most of these hits are legal
if delivered at proper intensity. An example of a agrant foul is a player
blindsiding an opponent as they trot downeld obviously out of the play.
These will now be ejections.
The Kick-Off. For a couple years the Iowa Association experimented with
requiring at least four players on each side of the kicker. Last year that was
eliminated. This year the National Association adopted the rule and expanded
on it.
All of the kicking team, except the kicker, has to begin the kick-off within
ve yards of the line the ball is kicked from. Only the kicker can start with
more than a ve-yard running start.
If the kicker starts more than ve yards behind the ball, they are the only
player that can kick it. If all players begin within ve yards, any player can
kick the ball.
These rule changes are centered on player safety with strong emphasis on head
injury prevention. Best of luck to the Indians, Hawks and Pirates in 2014.

The 2014 Kee cross coun-
try season looks to be com-
pletely one-sided this fall,
as no girls have reported for
early-season practice thus far
for the Hawks. Veteran coach
Gary Bottorff has also seen a
bit of a drop in overall num-
bers on the boys side of the
team equation this season,
as just nine competitors have
been putting in early-season
work-outs for the Kee boys.
Of those nine, six return
with varsity letterwinning
experience for Coach Bot-
torff, and ve of this seasons
team members are seniors.
Four of those team members
can boast that most veteran
combination of being both a
senior and a returning varsity
letterwinner, that quartet in-
cluding Sam Hisel, Michael
Harris, Nolan Welsh and Tom
Brennan. The sophomore pair
of Evan Whalen and Spencer
Colsch round out this years
list of seasoned returnees,
having earned their rst var-
sity stripes last season as
They bring their experi-
ence and knowledge of cross
country, Coach Bottorff said
of his veteran returnees. That
veteran nucleus will be joined
by senior Keegan Ahouse
and the sophomore tandem
of Mikey Mitchell and Jesse
Walleser in an effort to over-
come what has continued to
be the teams overall greatest
obstacle, once again, lack of
numbers, according to Bot-
In addition to low partic-
ipation numbers, this years
squad will also have to over-
come the loss of a four-year
varsity letterwinner with the
graduation of front-end run-
ner Matt Manning this past
May. But Coach Bottorff al-
ready sees some desirable
qualities emerging in his
teams early-season work-
Bottorff notes a willing-
ness to work hard to improve
from last year, team work
and a desire to compete as
early-season strengths he has
already witnessed from his
small but eager group as the
season gets underway. The
team, as a whole, has been
working hard getting ready
for the start of the season, he
Goals for this years
charges range from the very
simple of having fun, to
the ultimate goal of qualify-
ing for the State Meet. Coach
Bottorff also wants to see this
seasons team improve on
Kees ninth-place and 18th-
place nishes from last sea-
sons Upper Iowa Conference
and Class 1A District Meets,
respectively, and also hopes
to have everyone continuous-
ly improve on their own per-
sonal best times.
The veteran coach realiz-
es that attainment of those
goals depends on a handful of
key factors. How much they
improve from last year, and
whether they will give that
extra effort to be better than
last year, he shared as those
keys. How quick the new
members learn to run with
the experienced members of
the team. How fast they de-
velop depends on how much
effort they want to put into
the sport.
Coach Bottorff continues
to see Central Elkader and
South Winneshiek as the top
teams in the Upper Iowa Con-
ference again this season. The
Hawks were scheduled to get
a chance to experience a bit
of that conference competi-
tion at the Tuesday, August
26 Edgewood-Colesburg In-
vitational before next prepar-

Michael J. Hager Award winners ...
Each year the Waukon Swim Club honors swimmers
with the Michael J. Hager Award given in memory of Mi-
chael J. Hager (1960-1991), who was the son of Bon-
nie and James Hager of Waukon. This years Michael J.
Hager Award recipients are Laurel Keenan (left), daugh-
ter of Jess and Jerry Keenan, and Alexis Hogan (right),
daughter of Heather and Jeremy Hogan.
Hager loved swimming. In 1976, as a lifeguard at the
pool, he started the Waukon Swim Club. He worked as a
lifeguard, swam with the club and coached until he grad-
uated from high school in 1978. He went on to attend
college for one year at William Penn University and then
transferred to Luther College, where he swam for the
Norse for three years. Each summer, Hager would come
home to coach the swim team and lifeguard at the pool
until he graduated from Luther in 1982.
Hager believed that a swimmer did not have to be a
technical or precision swimmer to be good in the sport.
He believed that everyone could learn to swim and love
the water. Hager embraced the philosophy that swim-
mers should do their best and have fun.
This award has been given each year since 1992 in
Hagers memory to Waukon Swim Club members who
gave their best at practice and during meets while having
fun, supporting others, and being passionate about the
sport. Submitted photo.

Waukon to put the nishing
touches on the Quilts of Val-
or that are heading to South

photos) who volunteered
their time and materials to
make these Quilts of Val-
or. The quilts are stored in a
matching, handmade pillow-
case, and each quilt contains
a label on the back with the
names of the volunteers who
helped to make their quilt.
Quilts of Valor is a pro-
gram that has been in ex-
istence since November of
2003, and with the help of
quilters and local quilting
groups like the Northeast

September 7 "Map
of My Kingdom" play
addresses issue of
farmland transition
A play addressing the
critical issue of farmland
ownership will be performed
Sunday, September 7 at
Washington Prairie Lutheran
Church in Decorah. The play,
Map of My Kingdom, was
commissioned by Practical
Farmers of Iowa and written
by playwright Mary Swander.

place before the show at 6

to take part in the meal are
asked to bring a side dish or
dessert to share. All guests
are asked to RSVP to Lauren

In the play, character An-
gela Martin, a lawyer and me-
diator in land transition dis-
putes, shares stories of how
farmers and landowners have
approached their land transi-
tions. Some families struggle
to resolve the sale or transfer
of their land, dissolving rela-

peacefully rational solutions
that focused on keeping the
land - and the family - togeth-
According to Dan Wil-

Making Good Fried
Chicken Even Better

When I offered a reci-
pe here back in 1999 for
making oven-baked fried
chicken, the Holy Grail for
healthy eating was cutting
fat and calories from popular
dishes. At the time decreas-
ing them were so important
that versions where the crust
was limp and the chicken dry
were widely accepted. When
my recipe produced fried
chicken with a crunchy crust
over deliciously moist meat
and only 16 percent of calo-
ries from a mere 6 grams of
fat per serving, it was a hit.
Recently, I set out to im-
prove this recipe by includ-
ing whole grain while still
keeping the result crisp and
delectable. To achieve this, I
used whole-wheat panko for
the outer coating instead of
crushed fat-free soda crack-
ers that were key to my ear-
lier success. In fact, pankos
nubbly crunch makes this
new version even better.
I did try, and rejected, us-
ing whole-wheat our in the
seasoned coating, because it
turned gummy. Absorbing
more moisture than white
our, it also made the chick-
en drier. Since the amount of
our that actually clings to
the chicken is minimal, I feel
that using white our for the
rst coating is no big deal.
What has remained the
same in this new version is
the yogurt and egg white wet
coating. It makes a good base
for the panko and the yogurt,
like buttermilk, assures the
chickens tender moistness.
You are more likely to have it
on hand, too.
Do coat the chicken gen-
erously with either canola or
olive oil cooking spray. To-
day, while still watching cal-
ories, we also appreciate that
fat is not automatically bad,
so you can do this without
guilt. Please be sure to spray
the wire rack, as well. Flour-
ing the chicken in a paper
bag instead of a plastic one
lets the coating move more
freely and gets more of the
seasoning in the our onto
the pieces.
The next day, leftovers of
this fried chicken will still
draw compliments.

Crisp Oven-Fried Chicken
1/2 cup unbleached all
purpose our
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. mustard powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried or rubbed
1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground
black pepper
1 large egg white
1 container (6 oz.) low-fat,
plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat
4 skinless chicken breast
halves with rib, about 6 oz.
Canola or olive oil cook-
ing spray
Preheat oven to 375 de-
grees F. Spray wire baking
rack, place it on foil- covered
baking sheet and set aside.
In brown paper bag, com-
bine our, basil, mustard,
oregano, sage, thyme, cay-
enne, salt and pepper by
shaking bag; set bag aside. In
shallow, wide dish, use fork
to beat egg white until frothy.
Mix in yogurt, and set dish
aside. Place panko in another
shallow, wide plate.
One at a time, using paper
towel, pat a chicken breast
dry, drop it into bag and
shake to coat evenly with
seasoned our. Dip oured
chicken in yogurt mixture,
turning to cover it complete-
ly, then shake gently to re-
move excess. Place chicken
in panko, rib side up and us-
ing your ngers, press panko
to cover chicken all over.
Place panko-coated chicken
rib side down on prepared
rack. With your ngers press
on panko to cover any open
spots. Repeat with remain-
ing chicken pieces, leaving
at least 1 inch between them
on rack. Coat tops of chicken
breasts with cooking spray.
Discard remaining our, yo-
gurt mixture and panko.
Bake chicken until crisp
and golden brown with dark-
er edges, about 45 minutes.
Instant read thermometer
inserted into thickest part of
breast should register 165
degrees F. The chicken is
crunchy when served with-
in one-half hour. It keeps,

The late writer Flannery OConnor kept a devotional journal when she was in her twenties and a student at the Iowa Writers Workshop. It has recently been published under the title A
Prayer Journal. OConnor was a fervent Catholic and her journal is lled with interesting reections on spirituality, as well as writing, which she saw as a way to express her spirituality
and hopefully lead others to God. She laments early on that I do not know you God because I am in the way. Please help me to push myself aside. Throughout the journal we witness an
earnest young woman struggling heroically to be more pious, and striving to get out of Gods way, i.e., how to get rid of the ego and let God ll up the space. Her simultaneous struggle to
destroy the ego while seeking literary fame is sometimes the focus of her reections, as when she says Dont let me ever think, dear God, that I was anything but the instrument for Your
story, just like the typewriter was mine. God desires to work through all of us, through our words and our deeds, if we can only get our egos out of His way. - Christopher Simon
For we are Gods handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

Allamakee County
SWCD project helps
landowners include
conservation in land leases
The Allamakee County Soil and Water Conservation
District (SWCD) currently has a project to help landown-
ers include conservation in their farm leases by updating
their NRCS conservation plan(s) and plan maps to include
them as an addendum to the farm lease. This free service is
available to anyone in Allamakee County. Since there is an
active watershed project in the Waterloo Creek Watershed,
the SWCD would especially like to encourage Waterloo
Creek landowners in both the Iowa and Minnesota portions
of the watershed to consider participating in this project.
This project helps to facilitate discussion between the land-
owners and tenants regarding their goals and priorities for
the land.
By including a conservation plan and map in the lease,
both the landowner and renter know where specic con-
servation practices should be installed and maintained. By
having this information written down and drawn out on a
map, there is less confusion in the future. Much of the land
in Allamakee County is highly erodible (HEL) and produc-
ers are required to follow a Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) approved conservation system on the HEL
acres in order to be eligible for USDA Program benets.
Those with an interest in participating in this project or
who would like more information amy contact Sara Berges
at the Allamakee SWCD by calling 563-568-2246 ext. 3,
emailing sara.berges@ia.nacdnet.net, or by visiting the of-
ce at 635 9th St. NW in Waukon.

Margin Protection Program
for Dairy Producers
The 2014 Farm Bill autho-
rizes the Margin Protection
Program for Dairy Produc-
ers (MPP-Dairy), a new dairy
program to replace the MILC
program no later than Sep-
tember 1, 2014. The MPP-
Dairy program is a voluntary
program that provides dairy
operations with risk man-
agement coverage that will
pay producers when the dif-
ference between the national
price of milk and the average
cost of feed falls below a cer-
tain level selected by the pro-
ducers in a dairy operation.
The MPP-Dairy program
offers dairy producers the fol-
Catastrophic coverage, at
no cost to the producer, other
than an annual $100 adminis-
trative fee
Greater coverage at vari-
ous levels for a premium in
addition to the $100 adminis-
trative fee.
Sign-up will be September
2, 2014 through November
28, 2014.
The Allamakee County
FSA ofce will be trained
August 26-27 on this new
program. More information

NAPFF provides addition-
al assistance coverage under

bush or tree who have expe-
rienced losses in Allamakee
County. A Secretarial disaster
designation was issued due to
frost or freeze. Examples of
fruit are apples, aronia ber-
ries, peaches, pears, etc. The
eligible crop would end as a
product sold commercially.
The sign-up is July 22,
2014 through September 22,
2014. For more information
about this program, contact
the Allamakee County FSA
Continuous CRP Sign-Up
until September 30, 2014
Under continuous sign-up

time. Offers are automati-
cally accepted provided the
land and producer meet cer-
tain eligibility requirements.
Unlike CRP enrollments un-
der general sign-up authority,
offers for continuous sign-up
are not subject to competitive
The effective date of the
CRP contract is the rst day
of the month following the
month of approval. In cer-
tain circumstances, producers
may defer the effective date
for up to six months.
If the acreage is currently
under CRP contract and is
within one year of the sched-
uled expiration date, the ef-
fective date is October 1 fol-
lowing the expiration date.
To offer land for con-
tinuous sign-up, producers
should contact the Allamakee
County FSA Ofce.
Land must be cropland
that is planted or considered
planted to an agricultural
commodity four of the previ-
ous six crop years from 2008
to 2013, and is physically
and legally capable of being
planted (no planting restric-
tions due to an easement or
other legally binding instru-
ment) in a normal manner to
an agricultural commodity.
Land within an Environ-
mental Protection Agency
(EPA)-designated public
wellhead area also may be
eligible for enrollment on a
continuous basis.
Contact the Allamakee
County FSA Ofce as soon
as possible if you are inter-
ested in signing up for the
Continuous CRP sign-up.
Early Contract Termination
Provisions - CRP
The Agricultural Act of
2014 requires that the Secre-
tary offer producers the op-
portunity for an early out
for certain CRP contracts
during FY 2015, if those
contracts have been in effect
for at least ve years. June 5,
2014 USDA announced its
intent to offer early outs.
The early out option will
be available to CRP partici-
pants with acreage devoted to
certain practices that meet el-
igibility criteria. The sign-up
period for CRP participants
to terminate acreage under
the early out provisions is
August 6, 2014 through Janu-
ary 30, 2015. Effective dates
for early outs shall be no
earlier than October 1, 2014.
Contracts must be in effect
for at least ve years to be
eligible for termination under
the early out provisions.
Only CRP contracts with ef-
fective dates of October 1,
2009 or earlier are eligible for
termination under the early
out provisions.

September 1 deadline for terminating farm leases
Now is a good time for
land owners to think about
their farm lease for the 2015
crop year. According to Iowa
law, landowners who want to
terminate their rental agree-
ments or make changes in
current lease terms, proper
notice of termination must be
served by September 1, prior
to the end of the lease year.
This applies to both cash and
crop-share leases, but not
custom farming contracts.
In 2013, the Iowa Legis-
lature made a change in state
law regarding lease termina-
tion. The previous law ex-
empted termination notice for
parcels under 40 acres. Now,
a written notice of termina-
tion is required on all tracts
of rented farmland, regardless
of size. Farm leases automati-
cally continue as written from
year to year unless either
party gives a notice of termi-
nation. Even an oral lease is
automatically renewed if it is
not properly terminated.
Oral leases are only valid
for one year at a time in Iowa.
In order to have a longer con-
tract, it must be in writing.
Leases that are more than ve
years in length are required
by law to be recorded. The
termination notice must set
the date of termination as
March 1. The lease year runs
from March 1 to the last day
of February of the following

There are three methods
of serving a farm lease notice
of termination in Iowa. The
following is quoted from the
Code of Iowa, Section 562.7:
Notice How and when
served. Written notice shall
be served upon either party
or a successor of the party
by using one of the following
1. By delivery of the no-
tice, on or before September
1, with acceptance of service
to be signed by the party to
the lease or a successor of the
party, receiving the notice.
2. By serving the notice,
on or before September 1,
personally, or if personal ser-
vice has been tried and can-
not be achieved, by publica-
tion, on the same conditions,
and in the same manner as is
provided for the service of
original notices, except that
when the notice is served by
publication no afdavit is
required. Service by publica-
tion is completed on the day
of the last publication.
3. By mailing the notice
before September 1 by certi-
ed mail. Notice served by
certied mail is made and
completed when the notice
is enclosed in a sealed enve-
lope, with the proper postage
on the envelope, addressed to
the party or a successor of the
party at the last known mail-
ing address and deposited in
a mail receptacle provided by
the United States postal ser-

For those who own land
that has expiring CRP, it is
suggested that they update
their NRCS Conservation
Plan. Those landowners are
asked to contact the NRCS
ofce to discuss their planned
crop rotation and tillage. The
NRCS can then check the
soils and slopes on the farm
to ensure the desired rotation
and tillage will meet compli-
ance requirements.
Landowners who plan to
rent out their land are encour-
aged to attach their revised
conservation plan to their
farm lease. The NRCS staff is
available to meet with land-
owners and their tenants to
Update Conservation Plans
for land coming out of CRP
discuss conservation options
for their land. Keep in mind
that the soil and nutrients
have stayed on the land while
it has been in CRP. Landown-
ers should be sure that they
continue to protect the soil by
implementing the best rota-
tion, tillage and conservation
Staff can meet with land-
owners on-site to walk/drive
their farm or a meeting can be
arranged in the ofce. Those
who have questions or who
would like to participate in
this project are asked to stop

In a unanimous vote, the
Environmental Protection
Commission adopted rules
governing totally roofed con-
nement feeding operations
August 19.
The rules require these fa-
cilities to have a federal per-
mit to discharge to waters of
the U.S. called a national pol-
lutant discharge elimination
system (NPDES) permit. Op-
erations that need the permits
must meet federal design,
construction and monitoring
However, the NPDES per-
mit allows discharges of ef-
uent to a water of the U.S.
under certain conditions,
such as heavy rainfall. De-
pending upon the location,
an NPDES-permitted facility
in Iowa would be allowed to
discharge if more than 5.6
inches of rain fell within 24
Iowa has 167 open feed-
lots with NPDES permits,

The Agricultural Act of
2014 (2014 Farm Bill) has
authorized a one-time base
acreage reallocation and pro-
gram yield update. The Farm
Bill has also authorized new
farm programs including
Price Loss Coverage (PLC)
and Agricultural Risk Cov-
erage (ARC). PLC and ARC
crop programs provide price
and revenue, respectively,
payments to eligible produc-
ers for the 2014 through 2018
crop years.
The Farm Bill decision
process is a three-step pro-
1. Reallocation of base
acres and/or update of coun-
ter-cyclical yields (CC yield)
by FSA farm number.
2. Election (one-time) of
PLC or ARC program by
FSA farm number for the pe-
riod of the farm bill.
3. Enrollment (annual)
of the farm in the program
Summary Acreage History
In early August 2014, the
USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) will mail all farm-
land owners and operators a
Summary Acreage History
Report by FSA farm num-
ber. This report will provide
the farm owners and opera-
tors with the base acres and
counter-cyclical yield (CC
yield) as of September 30,
2013. This report will also
identify the planted acres of
covered commodities report-
ed (for 2008 through 2012),
prevented planted acres, and
acres planted after failed or
prevented (subsequent acres).
These were reported to FSA
by the producer for all cov-
ered commodities planted on
the farm for each year 2008
through 2012. Also, in ap-
proved double crop counties,
both covered commodities
planted will be included.
Reallocation of Base Acres
Upon receipt of the Sum-
mary Acreage History Re-
port, farmland owners and
operators should thoroughly
review the acreage data by
farm for each crop and each
year outlined in the report.
If the acreage history is ac-
curate for the farm then no
further action is required by
the farmland owner or op-
erator at this time. However,
farmland owners and opera-
tors who determine the Sum-
mary Acreage History Report
is incorrect or missing data
should contact their local
FSA county ofce to request
corrections to the acreage
history report. Additional in-
formation will be provided
once the reallocation soft-
ware and forms are available
in FSA county ofces which
may require farmland owners
and operators input or action.
Base acreage realloca-
tion allows the landowner/
producer to reallocate base
acres to covered commodities
2014 Farm Bill includes
updates, new crop programs
based on historical plantings
from the current base acre al-
location. The historical plant-
ings are based on the years
of 2009 to 2012. Individuals
cannot increase the number
of base acres; they can only
reallocate the base acres. The
individual/s will have the op-
tion to keep the current base
acre allocation as of Septem-
ber 30, 2013 or reallocate the
base acres.
Update of CC Yield to
Program Yield
The historical CC Yield
will be provided in the let-
ter; the producer/landowner
will have the option to update
the program yield based on
a ve-year (2008-2012) his-
torical planted yield history.
The updated Program Yield
will be equivalent to 90%
of the simple average of the
planted yield from 2008 to
2012. A plug yield per year
of 75% of the county average
planted yield will be used for
farm planted yields below the
75% county average value.
FSA is projected to launch
its reallocation of bases/yield
updates software in the early
fall 2014. If the decision to
update Program Yield (from
CC Yield) is taken, produc-
ers should be watching for
further information on what
information will be accepted
to document historical yields.

Every now and then, a
person featured here at-
tributes faith as pivotal in
their being able to cope
with disabilityone in
themselves or family mem-
bers. Sue Ihejirika of North
Minneapolis, Minnesota, is
one such example.
In a telephone interview,
Ihejirika said, (Our son)
Spencer was born a typi-
cal kid, without any health
problems, until he was
about ve. We had gone on
a trip to Wisconsin and on
the way back he began hav-
ing a fever and sleeping for
long periods of time.
That same month, in Au-
gust 2004, on a train ride
to Chicago, Spencer began
vomiting and experienced
at least two grand mal sei-
zures. The hospital couldnt
pinpoint a cause. Spencer
wasnt talking, couldnt go
to the bathroom alone, and
was, Ihejirika said, cogni-
tively vacant. He started
having even more seizures
and ts of high fever. Then
an MRI showed brain dam-
She said, We think he
was bit by a tick or mos-
quito carrying some type
of disease. There really
has never been a diagnoses
for what happened except
for brain damage. Doctors
think an infection in his
brain caused it.
After being home-
schooled two years, Spen-
cer recovered enough to
return to public school and
lead a relatively normal life
given his cognitive limita-
tions until last year at age
15. Thats when he began
experiencing severe symp-
toms all over again.
Ihejirika said, He started
showing more signs again
of anxiety and fear, and he
had a psychotic episode.
The medication he was tak-
ing was hard on him. He
went back to not being able
to go to the bathroom alone
and I had to help him with
everything. For a while, he
couldnt read books on his
own or focus on anything.
He has improved since
then, but still needs much
more time than the aver-
age teenager to process in-
formation. He often needs
instructions repeated, and
his school modies his
school work to t his cur-
rent abilities. At school,
Spencer plays football, and
the coach loves his positive

... that American consum-
ers of news are often accused
of having a short attention
span, and I think there is a lot
of truth in that.
However, sometimes the
news media cut short the
dwelling on a story because a
new story inserts itself.
Case in point was the sui-
cide of Robin Williams.
Every news show spent
many minutes on his death,
with quotes from anybody
they could get to comment.
The death of a young black
man in Missouri at the hands
of a white police ofcer
knocked the Williams story
out of the news. As of this
writing, that shooting is still a
lead story, after a week.
Thats despite some inter-
esting developments over-
seas, which are temporarily
taking a back seat.
Of all the things that Wil-
liams did, I still appreciated
his role as Mork from Ork
the most. I did not see some
of his serious movies. I did
see him as a guest on several
shows, and he was on from
the minute he was introduced,
shotgunning one liners one
after another. He was very
But when I learned of his
death, a line from Shake-
speare in The Tempest came
to mind: I shall laugh myself
to death.
And that led me to re-
call what my instructor said
in the university course on
Shakespeare that I took. He
said that in his comedies,
Shakespeare often included a
jester, or fool, or clown. And
that careful reading of those
plays reveals that the funny
guy was often the character
who moved the moral of the
story along. That the jester
was conveying Shakespeares
message to a greater extent
than the major characters.
Perhaps Williams funny
stuff was similar.
I cant comment on what
happened in that shooting
incident in Ferguson, MO be-
cause I dont think we know. I
dont think anyone knows for
sure with the exception of the
ofcer who red the shots,
and we have not heard from
him at this point.
It has been made clear
that the ofcer did not know
of the strong armed robbery
which the young man com-
mitted just before that. But I
wish someone would ques-
tion whether or not the de-
ceased young man might have
thought that was why the of-
cer was stopping him as he
walked down the middle of
the street with his buddy, who
had witnessed the robbery.
If they thought that was why
they were being stopped, how
would that have affected their
actions, if at all? Did that oc-
cur to them? Did they talk
about it? The friend knows, if
he will tell.
I do feel there are factors
on both sides which are keep-
ing the violence alive, none
more than the professional
race baiters such as Al Sharp-
ton, Jesse Jackson, and Attor-
ney Benjamin Crump, who is
continuing his Trevon Martin
screed of that case two years
Will the truth about what
happened end the bad feel-
ings? Will both sides accept
it? Dont bet on it!
To the Editor:
I would like to acknowl-
edge and express my sincere
appreciation for our local
EMS, law enforcement per-
sonnel and all individuals
for their assistance August 5.
Once our 911 call regarding
the situation with our canoe
accident on the Upper Iowa
River was received, their re-
ply to our need was promptly
and professionally handled.
I would also like to com-
mend Veterans Memorial
Hospitals ambulance crew
and employees who provided
compassionate and profes-
sional care.
We are fortunate to live in
a community with responsive
and caring individuals.

To the Editor:
Bravo to the Waukon Corn
Days Committee. They out-
did themselves this year. It
was a great time for many
people of varied interests and
lasted for a number of days. I
heard many good comments
from young and old, city and
country folks.
The 1940s Corn Days or-
ganizers have nothing on you
people. You did a great job.
Lock in those dates, tweak it
in a few areas and they will
come. You showed area peo-
ple that Waukon knows how
to entertain, which is nothing
new. Remember the capac-
ity Threshing Days crowds.
The car show was great
and quite entertaining, as
well as the parade, sweet
corn feed and even the dog
show. Just keep building on
it, involve more people and
The park was lled to ca-
pacity Sunday with many fun
events. Anyone who was not
involved this year but would
like to get in on the action
in 2015, speak up or contact
the chamber ofce or a Corn
Days member. Our neighbor-
ing citys Nordic Fest doesnt
just happen, nor does Fish
Days in Lansing.
While were at it, Howards
Home Furnishings should be
commended for staying with
it and not giving up after the
re. A lesser business may
have thrown in the towel.
Once they get up and run-
ning, patronize them - theyve
earned it. Keep the money lo-
cal and the whole community

75 Years Ago
August 30, 1939
This Week in the
County, State and Nation
Des Moines Register (Spe-
cial) Margaret Leeper, 21,
of Waterloo, Ia., was chosen
Queen of Iowa Redheads
Tuesday night before a ca-
pacity state fair grandstand
crowd. It was an evening of
royalty as Susan Hayward,
movie actress and Queen
of American Redheads, an-
nounced Miss Leepers victo-
ry. Paul Whiteman, King of
Jazz and one of the judges,
placed the crown on the Wa-

Cubs Nose Out Mudcats
In the fastest and most ex-
citing ball game of the season
Sunday, the Lansing Cubs
managed to eke out a 7 to 6
win over their city rivals, the
The Cats were out to win
and they turned on the power
in the second inning when
they blasted out ve succes-
sive hits and scored four runs
off Calvey, Cub pitcher. They
tallied another run in the
fourth inning.
Bud Rethwisch started a
Cub rally in the fourth when
he was hit by a pitched ball. J.
Spinner doubled and F. Spin-
ner drove both men home on
a single. Two more runs were
scored when Fink drove a
single through the box. The
Cubs also scored in the sixth
and seventh innings.
Gus Kerndt, Mudcat left
elder, belted a home run in-
side the park in the ninth in-
ning, and it seemed as if the
Cats had started another rally
when Kayo Spinner, who
was sent in to bat as a pinch
hitter, lined out a single, but
the rally was squelched by a
double play.
