Southeast Valley
Dayton elementary
hosts poster contest

Full Story on page 2. . .
The Southeast Valley elementary school in Dayton held an anti-drug/alcohol/tobacco art contest sponsored by Webster County Health and the Dayton Park
Board.

Conner Conrad selected
to Iowa Academic
All-State Team

Poster contest continued on page 2...

The annual Jazz Concert and Pie Auction was held on
Feb. 16 in the Gowrie gym. Jazz I and Jazz II performed,
as well as some choral groups and the Musical Theater
group doing “Chicago.”

The auction was a huge success due to great
community, parental, and student support. Auctioneer
for the evening’s festivities was Scott Klingson, who did
a “more than fabulous” job getting the most money for
each pie that was possible! Proceeds from the pie auction went directly to the music students, who will use the
money on their trip to Omaha Feb. 27-29. While in the
big city, they will do the Zoo, take in a symphony performance, hear some live jazz at the Louisiana Jazz Kitchen,
stay at a water park motel, and cap off the trip with a visit
to the Dinner Mystery Theater.

Mrs. Hanna, Mr. Louis, and all the band and
choir kids would like to thank everyone for their donations! Our school district ROCKS!

Southeast Valley Senior. . .

The Iowa Basketball Coaches Association announced its 2016 Boys Basketball Academic All-State
Team. These players were selected by an IBCA panel
from over 150 nominees by member IBCA coaches.

Named to the 2016 Academic All-State team
was Conner Conrad, senior, Southeast Valley. Tanner
Youngberg, Pocahontas Area, was also given this honor.
The other boys so honored were well out of this area.

This year’s selections have the following averages. The team averages a 29.9 ACT composite, averages a 3.95 grade point average and scores more than
16.5 points per game. In addition 17 of them are either
number 1 or 2 in their respective senior classes.

“Congratulations,” said Don Logan, IBCA Executive Secretary, to Conrad and the boys so honored.
“You have been selected to the Iowa Basketball Coaches
Association’s Academic All State team for 2016. This is
a great honor to your commitment not only as a basketball
player, but also that fine commitment you have shown to
educational and academic excellence as well. This honor
team is considered by many to have the toughest selection process. You were selected from over a record 150
nominations.”

Conrad and the other boys so honored will receive a certificate of recognition of this award at halftime
of the 2A Championship game Friday night , March 11,
2016. This is the second game that evening.

“Congratulations on a great honor,” said Don
Logan, IBCA Executive Secretary, to Conrad and others
in this unique group. “This particular group represents the
best in Iowa and may well be the best group we have ever
honored. A special thank you should go to your coach
who had to nominate you that you might be considered.
I look forward to meeting you in Des Moines."

The Southwest Webster Ambulance service is excited to add to their service a 2016 F450 Ambulance. It will
replace a 2002 E450 Super Duty ambulance that has been
purchased by Dayton Rescue.

The 2016 ambulance is almost identical to the 2009
that the Service has been running, except this one is 4wheel
drive. It does have a few more safety features on it to help

Jaguars win first district game 79-59!
Great shooting, defense. . .

The Southeast Valley Jaguars won their first
playoff game Thursday night against Manson-NW
79-59.

Once again the Jaguars, Conference champions, played a complete game, doing well offensively
and defensively. The Jags had a relatively slim 34-30
halftime lead but they outscored Manson-NW by 16 in
the second half, scoring 46 total points in the second
half to 31 for Manson.

Conner Conrad and Dakota Jaeschke led the
scoring with 39 and 17 points respectively.

And junior starter Alex Pliner stepped up
with four points with 2-5 in field goal shooting and
seven boards.

Others scoring points were Myles Davis, 7;
Caleb Jondle, 6; Logan Boerner, 4; and Cade King, 2.

The Jaguars received a first round bye in
districts for being ranked number one and then won
convincingly Thursday night.

The Jaguars also dominated the boards with
40 and top rebounders were: Jaeschke, 8; Davis, 8;
Pliner, 7; Conrad, 7; Jondle, 2; and King, 1.

Conrad and Davis each had three assists;
King, Boerner, and Jondle, two apiece; Pliner, Jaeschke, and Nolan Johnson, 1 each.

Conrad was 11-21 in shooting; 6-11 from
three range; and a team-leading 11-12 from the line.

Jaeschke was 7-9 from the field, 2-3 from the
line.

The Jaguars record is now 18-3 and SV competes for the District Title against Garner-Hayfield/
Ventura on Feb. 23 at Humboldt with a start time of
7 pm.

Vacation with a purpose...

Memory – “the store of things remembered – the
time within which past events are remembered”. Those
are a couple definitions Webster’s gave me. Thus I conclude memory has a wide expanse that keeps enlarging
as we add the years. In these jottings I have endeavored
many times to reach back into those many years my life
has covered forgetting some of the more recent events I
definitely do not want forgotten. Thus I bring back some
of the memories of mission trips to Jamaica.

It was in 1998 that our church was first introduced to a group from St. Andrews Lutheran Church in
Mahtomedi, Minnesota, called Mission Jamaica. Our
church “studied up” on the mission and decided we could
recruit a group to make a trip. They are known as “vacations with a purpose”, each session being from Saturday to Saturday. Our small group went in the winter
of 1999 (I believe in early March), flying to Kingstson.
We, fortunately, retrieved all our luggage, two each, one
containing supplies for the elementary school we would
be serving. The evening was waning as we boarded our
waiting bus which took us to a “resort” some miles away
up into the mountains. My roommate and I made it to our
quarters only to find our key wouldn’t work. We eventually got into another space which was clean though not
what most people would expect of a Jamaican “resort”.
I do not recall an evening meal so we may have eaten
“snacks” we had brought with us. The next morning we
found the scenery beautiful. The breakfast was a buffet
at outside tables. As we went through the line the food
looked very good and I know that I was one that took a
generous scoop of what I thought were scrambled eggs,
some toast, jelly and good Jamaican coffee. I remember
asking if they had any catsup or mustard (either of which
I like on my eggs). No, none was available. The “eggs”
turned out to be a national “dish” called Akki (pronounced Ah-kee) and aptly named in my estimation.
It is a “vegetable” that grows on a tree and looks something like a ripened green pepper and MUST be cooked
to not only be somewhat palatable but safe to eat. Catsup
or mustard may a have helped.
The next morning, since it was Sunday, we would attend
church, of course, but it was a large Episcopalian one in
the heart of Kingston. As we drove up to the facility we
noticed something strange – sauntering across the top of
a brick wall was a GOAT! We learned that even in this
large Jamaican Capitol city it was not unusual to see goats

The Dayton Community School District had
an enrollment of 359 for the 1965-66 school year. Central Webster had an enrollment of 598. And Stratford’s
school enrollment was 421. The cost per pupil was
$509.13, Central Webster; $604.44, Dayton Community;
and $440.29, Stratford.

The Dayton Community Club had 40 members.
Thirty-seven attended the meeting held in February at
Bud’s Cafe.

The Lehigh Local 522 Union are still on strike
at the W.S. Dickey Clay Manufacturing Company at
Lehigh. The strike is now entering the tenth day and was
commenced at midnight Monday, Feb. 14. The strike
involves about 180 men from the surrounding immediate area and pickets are located at both entrances to the
plant. Union negotiations involved an increasing work
load while crew members were being reduced in some
areas.

In 1916, 50 years ago, Arnet and Mathilda Swenson went to Des Moines to hear President Woodrow
Wilson speak. And in 1916, 80 acres of land was being
sold for $4,000 as advertised by J.A. Nixon, Real Estate
and Insurance.

Herb’s Clover Farm was advertising potato bologna for 59 cents a pound.

Mrs. Delma Bergman and Mrs. Kay Buenting

or cattle roaming the city streets as well as any roadway.
The services were not too hard to follow – very similar
to Lutheran. Children were dismissed for Sunday School
but when it was time for communion they were ushered
back in. There were four stations for communion – it
was that large a facility and strange building as the congregation grew so did the building. Pews were not all
directly facing the altar, yet the acoustics were good and
the configuration such that we could participate.

Following church we were bussed to our areas
of mission service for tours. Hope Experimental School
was quite a way from downtown Kingston and we were
told, in a “rough” area. For such a beautiful tropical
country we learned that this was a high crime area where
a shooting had occurred just outside the gates of the
highly fenced school grounds. The work would be varied
such as repairs to areas or building of new, painting and
some being with the children in their rustic classrooms.
On Monday and each day of our Kingston stay, prior to
breakfast, we gathered in a circle near our dining area for
a short worship and communion. After my breakfast of
toast and jam, we were again transported to the school,
stopping by a clinic to drop off the medical missionaries
with our group. The sizeable “front porch” was already
crowded with people eager for some free medical help.
The rest of us arrived at the school in time to be a part of
their all student opening they did each day. My recollection is that it included some scripture and a prayer. My
friend and I went to a classroom to observe and tell them
some about where we lived, how our children went to
school etc. The wife of one of the young doctors serving the clinic brought pictures of her three small children playing and sledding in Iowa snow. The children
were as fascinated by those scenes as the children back
in Iowa would be of the tropical beauty Mom would take
to them. I was later assigned to help with ushering children in and out of the eye and hearing testing that was
set up in a “spare” room. There were doctors from other
mission groups who were doing those tests. Once it was
determined a child needed glasses the problem was how
they would be able to get them as most families couldn’t
afford them. I know that was one of the problems MJ
worked on.
The children were all so loving and curious and delights.
For an additional charge the school provided us a simple
but ample meal each day and served it to us in the library

which MJ had helped to establish. I remember some of
the food being quite tasty but also learned that if you
have a meat dish such as chicken or goat (yes, goat) to
be careful not to bite down on a morsel but to check it as
they do not debone – just take a cleaver and chop, chop,
chop. It was there that I first had my favorite Jamaican
“treat”, a pattie, which is a meat (primarily) with delicious seasoning, filled crisp pastry. We learned of all
the improvements MJ had been able to give to this school
and what was planned. The playground equipment was
updated and now safe; there were computers; plans for
better desks than the wooden plank ones that remind you
of prairie schools desks and new tables in the cafeteria.
I’ll tell you more next week.

“ Let your light shine before men that they may see
your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven”
Matthew 5:16

Are we letting our lights shine for God? When
we are good to people and show them a kindness, even
when they may not deserve it (whoops are we being judgmental of others?) Whenever we do let our lights shine
we are letting our lights shine for our God and Master.
When we have a cheerful countenance, smiling at others,
even when things are not going well for us, we still are
setting a good example so that God will be glorified in
Heaven.

Most people are not overly impressed by our
knowledge, but they are drawn to our God by letting others see our good works in Him. So, we need to look for
opportunities and then let our lights shine for God.

If we we bring honor to Him, He will in turn,
honor us. He will pour out blessing after blessings into
our lives. We need to find new and different ways in
which we can let our lights shine for our Master!

Congrats on telling the $100,000 clinic scam
like it is!

It may have been 45 years since I’ve last lived in
Dayton, but I’m still in touch and visit often.

I’m not always in agreement with the Review’s
opinions, but this one is spot on!

This is Glenn Schreiber’s column written before 2005 about the locally Swedish Supper in Boxholm
at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Getting a ticket to the Swedish Supper at Trinity Lutheran Church in Boxholm is akin to getting a ticket
at Lambeau Field to see the Green Bay Packers. It’s just
about impossible to get a ticket unless you are a “season
ticketholder.”

Trinity Lutheran at Boxholm limits tickets sold to
500 and the event is a sellout every year, just like a Packers’ game. You have to just about know somebody to get
a ticket to the Boxholm Swedish Supper.

That’s because people who attend this event always come back. As you are reading this, the event could
very well be a sellout again next year. Well, there may be a
little turnover, but not much. Ticketholders probably pass
them on to relatives when they are ready to stop attending.

The Swedish Supper is a fabulous event. It is
very well organized, it offers superb Swedish food, and it’s
a great bargain! The price is just $10, and you won’t find
a deal like that anywhere else in our area.

I went to an authentic Swedish Supper in the
month of December at Becker’s Fine Foods in Pocahontas
about 10 years ago. Carol Becker, the owner, was a great
cook and I would say her meal was comparable to what
Boxholm has. But 10 years ago her price was $12 and her
small restaurant couldn’t serve anywhere near the people
that Trinity Lutheran serves in Boxholm. It would also be
fair to say that Trinity Lutheran produces much more food
quantity.

Aside from the great food and decor, I enjoy seeing all the people that gather for this event. Rose Hall,
Boone, was there with a group. Rose was a former teacher
and coach in Dayton in the 1950s.

Dick Liljegren walks by my table and says, “You
have something missing from your plate.” I have to plead

guilty for not taking any lutefisk. I tried the dish last year
and it just isn’t for me. But I like all the other Swedish
dishes.

Dora Hendrickson, Dayton, introduced me to the
Swedish Supper last year. We sat with Allen and Bonnie Croonquist, Moorland, and Dora’s cousin Marian Hendrickson, Fort Dodge. They are all members of the First
Covenant Church, Fort Dodge.

For many years this Fort Dodge church had an
annual Swedish Supper, serving about 650 according to
Bonnie. But it’s a lot of work and commitment and the
Fort Dodge church discontinued the Swedish Supper many
years ago. Dora pointed out that people of all nationalities
enjoy the Swedish Supper, including the Germans.

At the next table I spotted David and Velma
Kling, Harcourt. I turned and Alice Ozbun, Dayton, was
in a group that was sitting down.

There are three co-chairs that head this great
Swedish Supper. They are Linda Swanson, Boxholm;
Norma Henricks, and Gwen Scheetz. Donna Swaney,
Boxholm, was explaining this to me.

Kenny Peterson, Boxholm, the “other” Kenny
Peterson, assisted in seating people and waiting on tables.
Ken related that many years ago his wife Pat was a teacher
at Dayton. And Gwen Peterson, Dayton, wife of Ken Peterson, was also a teacher there.

“I remember when Superintendent Harold Rankin
addressed a PTO meeting,” said Ken. “He said, ‘I see that
we have the short Ken Peterson and the tall Ken Peterson
in attendance tonight.’”

Shorty Peterson, meanwhile, is the host at the
Swedish Supper, greeting everyone at the end of the buffet
line. The two Ken Petersons are not related, but the “short”
Ken Peterson and Shorty Peterson are first cousins.

Ed Peterson, Harcourt, Webster County Board
member, was another Peterson at this event. I met people
from many, many area communities, mostly within a 50
mile-radius of Boxholm. But one couple arrived from
the state of Virginia. They attended last year also. They
are originally from this area and visited relatives over the
Thanksgiving holiday, extending their stay three more
days to attend the Swedish Supper.

The Swedish Supper in Boxholm is that special,
and it has that type of following and loyalty.

first round Kyler drew Senior Nick Long of East Marshall
and lost a tough battle 12-4. In the consolation first round
Kyler wrestled Tyler Zieman of Cherokee and won his
first State Tournament match 7-1 placing him in Friday's
quarterfinals and 2nd round consolations for the right to
place in the top 8 in the state. Kyler awaited the loser of
#2 ranked Zach Johnston of ADM and #3 ranked Jake
Juhl of Independence. In Kyler's third match of the tournament he battled tough but lost 10-4 to Jake Juhl.
You don't see very many freshman at his weight class
wrestling in class 2A. This was a great learning experience for Kyler, hopefully it will fuel him as he continues
his wrestling career to get up on the awards stand Saturday night. The coaching staff felt Kyler wrestled tougher
as he progressed into the tournament. We are very proud
of Kyler and what he accomplished in his first year of
Varsity wrestling." Kyler ended his season with a 36-12
record.

students perform for
Drake Honor Band

On Feb. 9, Hannah Peterson and Miranda Keith
performed with the Senior Honor Jazz Band, under the
direction of Andy Classen, at Drake University.

This was Hannah’s fourth year that she was selected for this honor band. It was Miranda’s third year
for attending. Miranda was one of the soloists for the
tune “Spirit of New Orleans,” an Andy Classen original
composition. Miranda is considering attending Drake
University to study music, and Andy Classen was trying
his hardest to get Hannah to come to Drake and play in
his band, also!

Students are selected by recommendations from
Mrs. Hanna, and Andy Classen keeps track of who does
well when they are in it the year before. If they bomb,
they don't get asked back. If they do good, he chooses
them again! He happens to absolutely trust Hannah and
Miranda's playing abilities and their being prepared on
the music every year. Good job girls!

harness in the back, so that the crew can be buckled in even
while treating a patient. In most ambulance accidents, the
crew in the back of the rig is the ones that are most severely
hurt due to not being buckled in. There is also more lighting
around the outside of the rig for those night time calls on the
roadways. We have the Chevrons added to the back of the
ambulance that are reflective to also help with visibility at
night. The service wants to continue to promote safety for
the communities it serves plus the people who serve it.

The ambulance response to an average of 165 calls

Dayton Rescue to help cover their area (split between us,
Stratford and Trinity) as they were lacking full time coverage during the daytime. Due to this agreement, we are now
covering a more hilly area, which will make the 4-wheel
drive more important to have. The service has 2 ambulances

Harcourt City
Council meeting
Monday, Feb. 15
Generator for power plant...

There was informative information provided by
Robert “Barney” Barnettat the Monday Feb. 15 meeting
of the Harcourrt City Council. Mr. Barnett stated he repaired a section of pipe hooked to the chlorinator that had
been leaking after damage caused from chlorine eating
away at the fitting.

The pipe was in place since 2008. Mr. Barnett
gave many advantages of a generator for the power plant.
He also provided costs or contact information for those
he contacted for estimates to implement this plan. He
stated that if a generator was approved he would have to
create an outside entry for access to the generator.

Mayor Grant Gibbons spoke about a need to put
a sign at the intersection of Larch and Fourth Streets. He
also wanted a count of how many signs were needed.

Council Member Greenfield talked about a used
1981 fire truck that had been purchased and that it could
hold 1250 gallons of water. He added that the fire department will be striping down the old truck and taking what
parts could be used on the truck purchased. They would
be taking the old truck to Dan Rasmussen to try to sell it.

Council member Fors reported the new ambulance is in service now.

Mayor Gibbons wanted to prioritized three or
four projects the council could work on while keeping the
limited budget in mind.

Council member Scott Engquist stated he had
been approached by the Boxholm Mayor and stated that
their city leases a tractor from John Deere for $1800 per
year. A list is to be made listing trees that need taken
down and the number of trees to replant. The City Clerk
Tina Brandel will be checking in with utility companies
for tree programs.

Mayor Gibbons asked for ideas for students
in community service that would be presented to the
school board. Some things mentioned were painting the
bathrooms and putting polyurethane doors at the shelter
house, to plant trees at both the community center and
City Park, planting flowers in the barrels, and landscaping in front of the community center.

Mayor Gibbons mentioned being approached
regarding lights not working at the community center. Six
lights were burned out in the gymnasium.

Central Plains FFA...
continued from page 6...
Washington's birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. The first
National FFA Week was held in 1948. Today, FFA Week
always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb.
22, Washington's birthday.
National FFA Week did not start out as a weeklong event. At first it was National FFA Day. The 1933
National FFA Convention Proceedings records the beginning of FFA Day in this way: "Stewart of Montana
requested the floor at this time to present a matter of general interest. He suggested the idea of having a special
Future Farmer Day some time during 1934, preferably
on one of the regular national FFA broadcasting days. It
was pointed out that the various state associations could
perhaps plan special state broadcasts also on that day and
that chapters might plan their father and son banquets on
the date specified. The idea seemed to meet with general delegate approval and after some discussion it was
moved by Stewart that the Board of Trustees arrange for
such a day; motion passed."

Class of ‘57 mini-reunion

Lunch time on February 17th, a sizeable minority of the graduating class of 1957 got togther in Mesa,
Arizona, near Phoenix. This get together has become
a yearly mini-reunion out of the 18 who graduted that
year. Of those in the picture two actually graduated
that Spring and Mary Williams is the widow of Terry
(LaMont) Williams, who also graduated that special day.
Mary was from the DHS class of ‘58.

Also shown in the picture is Dennis Schmickley,
whose father was superintendent of the Dayton Schools.
His father left that position for a state wide athletic association job so he was only able to be with this class until
the 6th grade.

He finished his public school in Boone. Invited
but unable to attend was Kirby Hanson who winters in
Tuscan.

The Jaguar girls basketball team
came out on top against GTRA 36-24
By Coach Coffman

On January 29, the Jaguars played a home game
against the Titans from Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire. The Jaguars came out on top with a 36-24 victory.
Shots were hard to come by in this game, so every basket was crucial. Josie Breitsprecher led the Jags with 15
points. Erica Rittgers added 6 points and Aaliyah Scott had
5 points. Cassie Zinnel had three free throws for 3 points.
Morgan Castenson and Mady Jaeschke each had a basket
for 2 points. Kasey Lundberg took a trip to the free throw
line and made them both for her 2 points. Emma Graves
made a free throw for 1 point. Rittgers led Southeast Valley in rebounding with 9 rebounds. Scott pulled down 8
rebounds. Rittgers played a good game defensively with
3 steals and 4 blocks on the night. Graves dished out 3 assists to her teammates.

Southeast Valley followed this game with a game
against South Central Calhoun on Thursday, February 4.
The Titans were too much for the Jaguars as the final score
was 47-68. Emma Graves led in scoring with 11 points.
Josie Breitsprecher was close behind with 10 points. Erica
Rittgers added 7 points. Aaliyah Scott chipped in 6 points.
Morgan Castenson hit a buzzer beating three-pointer and
had another basket for 5 points. Cassie Zinnel nailed a
three-pointer for 3 points. Karissa Hiesterman and Mady
Jaeschke had 2 points apiece. Carson Shipley made a
free throw for 1 point. Rittgers again led the Jags in rebounding with 8 rebounds. She also led in assists with
4. Breitsprecher and Jaeschke each grabbed 4 rebounds.
Rittgers used her versatility again to acquire 3 blocks.

Friday, February 5, was senior night for SV. The
game was against East Sac County. It was a very close
game throughout and the final score is not indicative of
how close it really was. The Jags were leading 21-16 at

halftime, but could not hold on to that lead in the second
half. They lost 35-47 to the Raiders. The Jags were led
in scoring by Josie Breitsprecher. She scored 13 points.
Cassie Zinnel started the game hot, hitting 2 three-pointers
for 6 points. Aaliyah Scott added 5 points. Emma Graves
had two baskets for 4 points. Erica Rittgers made a threepointer for 3 points. Kasey Lundberg and Morgan Castenson each chipped in 2 points on the night. Breitsprecher

both pulled down 5 rebounds. The seniors are Kearsten
Hainzinger, Cassie Zinnel, Josie Breitsprecher, Erica Rittgers, and Aaliyah Scott. The coaches would like to thank
the five seniors for all of their time and hard work. They
are a great group on and off the court. They will be deeply
missed and are irreplaceable. The girls’ basketball team
wishes them well in their future endeavors. A special
mention is necessary for another player who will also be
leaving us after this year. One of our district’s foreign exchange students participated in basketball this season and
despite her worries that she wouldn’t make it, she survived
the whole season. Oumaima Zenati was a great addition to
the Jaguar team this year and brightened everyone’s day.
She made her first basket in a JV game against SCC on
February 1. She will also be sincerely missed.

Southeast Valley
JV girls basketball
team finish season
By Coach Sorenson

Southeast Valley Junior Varsity girls basketball team took their last bus ride for the season, Monday,
February 1st. by taking on South Central Calhoun. The
Jaguars dropped the contest to the Titans, 26-34.

Shelby Cummins rose to the challenge, leading
the Jaguar offense with 11 points. Scoring seven points
off free-throws. Cummins shot 7 of 10 from the charity
stripe. Carson Shipley was a perfect 2 of 2 at the freethrow line and connected on a basket to finish with 4
points. Hannah DeVries put her shooting form to work,
contributing 4 points for the Jaguars. Sammy Alphs went
to work in the paint, resulting in trips to the free-throw
line where she connected on 3 of 4. Alphs ended the
game with 3 points. Cassidy Lambert powered in a bucket
to finish with 2 points. Oumaima Zenati hit a jump shot to
score 2 points for the Jaguars. Zenati helped the JV girls
achieve perfection in the scoring category. Every person
on the Jaguars JV scored this season. When Zenati’s shot
fell, the entire team erupted off the bench to congratulate
her. Zenati’s coaches could not have been more proud of
her. It was one of our greatest moments all season long!

We would like to extend a sincere gratefulness
to show our appreciation for Oumaima Zenati joining our
team this season. Even though it wasn’t always easy, Zenati showed what a true competitor is. She worked harder

SV girls basketball
comes to a close against
Carroll
Kuemper

By Coach Coffman

Southeast Valley Girls’ Basketball started regional play on Saturday, February 13, against Carroll
Kuemper. The Jaguars and Knights had very similar stats
entering the game, but the Knights used their height for a
slight edge. The Jags lost 44-59.

Josie Breitsprecher had a career high with 20
points. Cassie Zinnel had Kuemper flying to get to her
as she made three three-pointers in the first half. She
ended with 11 points. Erica Rittgers and Emma Graves
each had 5 points for SV. Mady Jaeschke hit a three for
3 points. Aaliyah Scott led the Jags in rebounding with
7 rebounds. Graves grabbed 5 rebounds and Rittgers had
3 rebounds. Breitsprecher dished out 4 assists. Rittgers
had 3 steals.

The Jaguars close the season 9-12, going 4-6 in
conference play. They will be graduating 5 seniors and
returning just 1 upperclassmen.

than most people ever work and became a true Jaguar
basketball player. Most people go through life without
challenging themselves half as hard as Zenati did this
season. This proves the kind of person she is, and we
hope she gained as much from her experience with us as
we did from having her on our team

Soutehast Valley JV host East Sac...

The Southeast Valley Junior varsity girls hosted
their last game of the season Friday, February 5th, against
East Sac County. Despite a valiant effort, the Jaguars
dropped the contest 23-33.

The Jaguars went into half-time trailing 4-20.
They went to work in the third quarter, outscoring the
Raiders 11-6. In the fourth quarter the Jags did not give
up, scoring six team points and only allowing ESC to
score seven. The girls played tough defense the second
half to make up for the cold shooting that plagued them
in the first half.

Once again powerhouse Shelby Cummins led
the Jaguar offense with 6 points. Cassidy Lambert went
to work inside to pound out 5 points for the Jags. Savanah
Seehusen drained a three-pointer to end with 3 points.
Ebony Scott, Lanie Nelsen, Lexi Corell, and Hannah
DeVries all contributed a solid 2 points apiece.

The Jaguar Junior Varsity girls finished their
season with a record of 6-8 over all. Despite some ups
and downs this was a very successful season for the Jaguars. With such a young group, the future appears to be
very bright. Growth and understanding of the game at the
high school level is huge for our young squad. They have
come so far together, and it will only get better.

We would like to thank all the girls, on and off
the court, for their hard work and dedication.

A March 1, 1944 letter from Cadet V.E. Swanson’s
A glimpse into the life of a Cadet...
Dearest Folks,

See that date - it was and is a very important
one for both me and a lot of other soldiers. We got paid.
Enough said - right.

Well, my little envelope contained $54.20. When
we came out of that little room I felt sort of funny, ‘Cause
all the other fellows got about $80 or $90. They talk about
having that much to go out on for another month and they
probably do get rid of that amount, because at the end of
every month they’re as close to broke as I am.

But when I get back to my room, I can sit down
and do a little figuring that makes me feel much better.
For instance, they get their $90 but I know I have two war
bonds heading for safe keeping while they don’t. You
know we didn’t get paid for January until today -- that’s

Vernon E. Swanson, author of Sergeant Swanson Letters Home 1943-1945.

the reason for the two month’s pay.

I sort of have a guilty conscience because of the
dough I received from you so I could come home on furlough. If I would have gone according to my means, I just
wouldn’t have gone. But the wisest thing to do would be
to ask you to “rack it up” for reasons I shall explain.

You see there’s a heavy possibility that we
won’t get paid for another two months as that is just
what happens when a soldier transfers from one address
to another. To be on the safe side I want to go carry on
what I have and be able to take care of myself that second
month.

The above has been about money -- now on to
some probably more important bits of news. Incidentally,
I’ve finished my hardest days of the week - Monday &
Tuesday. So I feel free to write letters.

Sunday morning we got up at 7 a.m. and ate
breakfast and at 8 a.m. about 100 of us were lined up for
the Air Corps test. After a few screening tests - vision,
color-blindness and records - we packed in seats to take
the mental. It was rough and really, we had to figuratively
beat our brains out. I finished about 3rd out of the 54 boys
permitted to take it, and I didn’t get out until 12:20 p.m.
I was notified I passed and the sergeant added that I got a
very good grade. Thus it was.

Monday I got a swell letter with birth certificate
and fine letters of recommendation ( I had already received one from Troy and one from Dean Wald). I immediately handed them in at the Commandant’s Office
and except for a physical exam we expected to take about
10 days, I was set for the Army Air Corps.

Well, this noon after Classes, I found the certificate and letters, on my desk here in my room Bad news!!!
This morning they got a telegram from Washington saying that no ASTP boys were to be transferred. That does
that and it sort of made me blue for a while. What is to
happen to us we don’t know. According to that official
bulletin, something is supposed to pop between now and
the first of April. At least if I ever again got the chance, I
will have passed the test and have on hand the necessary
papers. Until we get further word though, the above explains the situation ahead of us.

I enjoyed a very interesting weekend, and am
looking forward to next Saturday after inspection. Scott,
Sunstrum and I tore off to the movie “Desert Song” and

had a hamburger apiece for supper.

Then we came back here and got dressed up in
our tuxes for a big evening ( you can guess what kind of
tux we wore!). Anyway we had gotten stag invitations
to the Colonial Ball over at Southern Seminary in Buena
Vista 6 miles away.

Southern Sem. is a girls school and this Ball was
their gala affair of the year. Some boys from here had
date invitations and had to fork out $4 for corsages, but
all we paid was .75 cab fare.

Talk about beautiful women and they dressed
formally in a Colonial sort of way.

Plenty of guys in tails too. We had more fun
messing around just trying to make the evening miser
