Herman Q Larson, 97, died June 2 at Mary
Greeley Medical Center in Ames of Pneumonia.

A visitation is planned for Sunday, June 12,
2:00-5:00 at the Lutheran Church in Stratford.

Herman was born April 23, 1919 at home of
Swedish immigrant farmer/carpenters that settled in the
Boxholm area. He always cherished his Swedish heritage
and spoke Swedish until school age.

He was the last of 6 children born to Gilbert and
Alice Larson of rural Boxholm. Growing up on a farm
during the depression, he knew hard work and hard times
and developed a life long love of work horses.

He excelled like his brothers in sports at
Boxholm School. Wanting to Play football, he hitchhiked to the University of Iowa for a semester that cost
17 dollars.

After the Pearl Harbor attack, he enlisted in the
U.S. Marine Corp in 1942. He served as a radioman/
gunner in an SBD Dive Bomber squadron that flew 64
missions in the Solomon Islands, Guadalcanal to Bougainville and Roboul. He was discharged in October of
1945 with an Air Medal.

He married Mary Larson of Stratford during a
furlough on May 6, 1944.

After the war, they settled in Stratford, had
3 children and worked as a credit reporter for Dun and
Bradstreet. Wanting to open his own business, he sought
a loan at a bank in Fort Dodge and walked out as a bank
employee. He spent the next 35 years as bank branch
manager and insurance agent in Lehigh. He was always
a farmer at heart, taking care of his farm near Boxholm.

After retiring from the bank, they moved back to
Stratford, The last 8 years they enjoyed living at Athens
Woods Estates and then to the Care Center after Herman
suffered a fall.

He was devoted and generous to his wife of 72
years, Mary, his family, church and the communities in
which they lived. He loved his grandkids and nephews
and nieces and loved nothing more than family gatherings with conversation over a good cup of coffee.

He is survived by his wife, Mary, children: Susan Chamberlin of Clive, Joan Sandell (Don) of Fort
Dodge, and Greg Larson (Sharon) of Ames, 7 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, 4
brothers, 1 sister, and 1 grandson.

Gods Representative

Let your light shine before men that they may


see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.
Matthew 5:16

Do we feel we are Gods representatives here
on earth? We should, if we dont. When we allow Him
to work in our lives, we are letting our lights shine for
Him. When we are good to people and show them kindnesses instead of cruelty, we are letting our lights shine
for Him. When we have a good attitude every day, even
when things may be going wrong in our own lives, we
are setting examples that people can see. People arent
impressed by our words so much as they are by our actions. We need to look for opportunities to let our lights
shine and glorify our God. As we bring honor to Him, He
will honor us and continue to pour out His blessings in all
areas of our lives. Today what kind of a representative
will we be?

Prayer: Lord, nudge us when we fail to be a
representative for You. We have countless opportunities
each day to glorify You. Help us to remember this and
give You thanks. In Jesus Holy Name, Amen

They also have Sassy Shivers which is a shake
made with your favorite combination of treats, Root Beer
floats served with Sioux City Root Beer, warm Brownie
Sundaes, Cake Balls, and we just added self-serve coffee,
cappuccino, hot chocolate and tea!

They are striving to create a great place for family and friends to come and get a delicious and unique
dessert with personality! Courtney and Bryan feel hopefully that being local owners involved with their community and giving back will only help them to grow the
business.

They are located at 2913 5th Avenue South in
Fort Dodge next to Buffalo Wild Wings.

Sassy Strawberry in Fort Dodge
Bryan SV teacher, Courtney manages business...

Bryan and Courtney Bachel, purchased Sassy
Strawberry in Fort Dodge on March 9 and reopened it on
March 11.

The business had been closed exactly one month
from February 11. It had been in Fort Dodge since the fall
of 2014.

Six employees returned to work for the Bachels
and Courtney says they have been life savers! They are
all students from local high schools and colleges, Courtney also mentioned we couldnt have done it without
them!

It is not a franchise busines but is now a locally
owned shop and the only one the Bachels own.

The previous owners were from out of town and
getting out of the frozen dessert business so they were
selling the four shops they owned and the opportunity just
fell in Bryan and Courtneys laps.

There is another Sassy Strawberry in Burlington
but they are owned by someone else and run separately.

Courtney attended school for Business Management and always wanted to own her own small business.


In fact she researched what it would
require for a Frozen Yogurt shop almost four years to the
date earlier in March 2012. At the time the Bachels had a
very young family and the start up costs were too much

for them to handle and the risk was too great so Courtney
put that dream on hold.

Fast forward four years and this opportunity
arose and they thought its now or never, best to give it a
shot and have no regrets!

Courtney still works full time in Human Resources at Decker Truck Line, Inc. where she learned
many of the skills needed to be successful in business.

Running the shop is something Courtney is doing on the side by managing the marketing and finances
behind the scenes.

Their staff supervises the shops day-to-day operations and makes it possible for Courtney to still have a
home life outside of work!

So it is a locally owned family business and everyone helps out when they can. Their children, Colton,
5 and Brynley 3, even help do some cleaning when they
can! Although their favorite job is to taste test all of the
flavors and toppings!

Bryan has done some artwork for the shop and
helps Courtney with some of the maintenance as well, so
it really is family owned and operated!

Bryan recently finished his eighth year in teaching. This would be his sixth year at the high
school as the art teacher. He is starting his
third year as head baseball coach for Southeast Valley.

In addition to the six staff that
returned they hired another two so
they have a current staff of eight.
Six of them are leaving for college in the fall so they will be
hiring again here very soon!

The Sassy Strawberry has 21 flavors of
self-serve, soft serve frozen
yogurt, gelato, Italian ice,
custard and fruit mix. Another eight flavors of Ashbys
ice cream we hand-dip for our
customers.

They always have
a dairy-free and a sugar-free
option as well. Over 60 fresh
toppings in our toppings bar
from fruit to candy to granola.


Crappies and bluegills are biting in small ponds
and lakes across Iowa. Spring panfish fishing is a great
opportunity to introduce beginners of all ages to fishing.

Late May and early June is an excellent time to
take kids fishing since many species are spawning and do
not spook as easily, said Joe Larscheid, chief of the Iowa
Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Bureau.

Parents can make the trip more memorable by
bringing snacks, taking photos and celebrating each fish
as if it were a record breaker, said Larscheid. Sharing
and teaching fishing skills to our kids will help pass along
this Iowa tradition.

Look for any type of structure in the water,
like rocks or a pile of brush or gravel to find bluegills
or crappies. Bass will be around brush or boat docks or
rock piles. Pinpoint panfish hotspots with downloadable
fishing structure location maps available on the DNRs
Fishing Maps website.

Keep the hooks, bobbers and bait small because panfish have small mouths, Larscheid said. The
biggest problem we see is anglers using too heavy of line
with large bobbers and hooks. Use as light of tackle as
you can. I suggest using four pound line, a bobber the size
of a quarter and a size 8 hook.

We have a lot of good fishing opportunities
close to home, Larscheid said. Make sure a rod and reel
are part of any weekend plans. Fishing makes memories
that will last a lifetime.

Anyone catching their first fish is encouraged
to take a photo of it and send it in to receive the DNRs
first fish award. The DNR will commemorate the event
with a certificate suitable for framing with the submitted
photo. Apply for a first fish certificate online at https://
programs.iowadnr.gov/masterangler/ or complete the
form in the Iowa Fishing Regulations and mail it in.

Enjoy Iowas outdoors and spend some time
fishing this spring. Find tips for catching crappie, bluegills and yellow bass on the DNR website at www.iowadnr.gov/fishing.

Hunter family
Memorial Day picnic
a family tradition
Great grandson lives
at original home
in rural Gowrie. . .


The M.D. Hunter family had their annual Memorial Day picnic. It was held at the home of Joan
Hunter Orness, Gowrie. As far as we can calculate, this
would be about the 125th year it has been held.
M.D. and his wife, Emma had one daughter
and four sons. They were Ruby, Earl, Ernest, Russell, and Marvel. Many of their descendants live
in the area and have been involved in farming.

Nathan Brandes, rural Gowrie, lives
on the original home place of M.D. and
Emma. He is a great grandson and the
only family member still farming. Rubys descendants are all deceased. Many
of the descendants of the four brothers
were at Mondays picnic.
There were 35 in attendance coming
from Fort Dodge, Des Moines, Humboldt,
Gowrie, and Colorado. The group now consists of grandchildren, great grandchildren,
and great great grandchildren. It is always a
day full of conversation, reconnection, and
very good food.

Memorial Day brings more memories. . .



How was your Memorial Day weekend? Were
you one of fortunate ones who was either retired or had a
three day holiday? Being retired yet working I had four
days. I was pleased as I had a graduation to attend on Saturday so made the trek to the St. Charles cemetery on Friday. The temperature was pleasant. There was a mist in the
air but not a deluge to keep me from getting the flowers,
transporting them and placing them on my parents and
grandparents graves. It is approximately 30 miles from
my residence to the cemetery so it was a nice little journey. I do not go over to I-35 but take my street to County
Line to 9th St. and south out to Norwalk and Martensdale
and then a short way to I-35 with only a few miles on that
byway. It is a pretty drive and far less traffic and thus a bit
relaxing. The bad thing about it was on that stretch of I-35
considerable reconstruction is being done and thus that interchange is a bit tricky plus some two-way, no-passing
stretches. The next time I will jog a bit going through St.
Marys and avoiding I-35 altogether which will not add
much time or mileage and less messing with the traffic.

It has been well over 70 years since my Dad,
Mom and I left St. Charles to move to Boone County and
each time I go out that way it seems there have been more
changes. St. Charles is like most small Iowa farming community towns. There arent many businesses on the main
street. Once there were two grocery stores gone. Once
there was a large drug store gone but a small one does
exist next door. Once there were a couple cafes gone.
Once there was a couple banks in the main street area
gone but --- at the east edge of town is a new beautiful,
modern bank building. Gone are many places (just like
Boxholm and Dayton and many other towns) but they do
have a Caseys with prices almost twice as high as super
markets for some items but it is good to have a place to
get gasoline (competitive prices) and good pizza available.
Gone are all those houses at that end of town that the bank
and Caseys have replaced.

A few years ago the house in which I was born,
just a scant mile east of town, was replaced with a very new
modern one. Up the road a bit onto the road that comes in
from I-35 is the house that a number of years ago replaced
my second home. I am guessing that the old, old farm
house northwest of town, the next place, has long been
gone. And, the clincher the little house on the corner
across from the Presbyterian church is gone. A big steel
building is now occupying that lot and the garden lot behind it. That church is now the Welcome Center to St.
Charles and Covered Bridge Country. The house across
the street west where the Andersons lived and I visited
is still there but looks as if it shouldnt be. Many business buildings are gone or replaced. The school is a ghost,
not having been used for years. The old Christian Church
where you always got good homemade ice cream during
Old Settlers days is long gone. The three main churches
(Methodist, Presbyterian & Christian) joined together as
The St. Charles Parish, using the Methodist church where
I first attended Sunday School and said my piece in the
Christmas programs. They added a nice fellowship hall to
the back and so family funerals have been at that church
over these last years. The old house at the east end of town
still stands with the stucco falling off and looks abandoned.
It is old as my Dad told me it was the first, I believe Methodist, church in town. A new denomination has come to
town since my day and I understand has a sizeable congregation

So, nothing remains as in our memories, be it St.
Charles, Boxholm, Dayton or any other small Iowa town.
What St. Charles has going for it is its proximity to I-35,
being so close to Des Moines, having that new entertainment venue which is so accessible from I-35 (where Willie Nelson will be this summer), having the Imes covered
bridge now situated as you enter the town and being a
gateway to the bridges. It is a bedroom town with a
number of new homes and is in a fairly scenic area.

Probably most people who were born and raised
in and near small communities, went to school there knew
everyone from kindergarten through seniors. They knew all
their neighbors out in the farming areas and all the townspeople and various merchants. They could almost walk
blindfolded down the main street and know when they
were at the doorstep of a specific business. When we have
been gone a long time and prepare to go back for a visit
our memories conjure up what was and then we are flabbergasted when we visit and our eyes are opened. Thats
the way it is for me whether I visit St. Charles, Boxholm,
Dayton or other small towns with which I was once familiar. We realize that we grow up; we get older and people
are gone and the whole scene does change, some for the
good and others just faded away. But, isnt it wonderful?
We have those memories and we need to keep them alive
and pass on to our progeny so they will know some of their
heritage and be encouraged to pass it and theirs on to the
next generations.
Memorial Day is a day set aside originally to remember

those who served in the armed forces of our country. But,


I think it is also for all memories of what was in the generations before us and to be passed on to those to follow.
Keep your memories alive!

Jags softball team


routs Manson 10-0

The Southeast Valley softball team continued
to leave no doubt on Friday, June 2 as they beat Manson Northwest Webster 10-0 in five innings. After six
games, the Jaguars have only played one seven-inning
game. They continue to stay tough extending their winning streak to five games.

The Jags dominated from the very first inning
when Natalie Lambert sparked the Jags with a base hit
and stole second. Erica Rittgers followed with a base hit
of her own which moved Lambert to third and Rittgers
stole second. Morgan Castenson drove in the first runs
of the game by scoring Lambert and Rittgers. With two
outs in the inning, Kearsten Hainzinger drilled her first
career homerun to left center to give the Jags a 4-0 lead.

Southeast Valley put the game away in the second inning scoring six runs on four runs and three Cougar
errors. Josie Breitspecher started the inning reaching on
an error. Sam Alphs then laid down a beautiful sacrifice bunt that was thrown into right field. Breitsprecher
scored on the play and Alphs made it all the way to third.
Natalie Lambert drove Alphs in with a single and Kasey
Lundberg followed with a single of her own.

With Lambert and Lundberg on base Morgan
Castenson drove in Lambert. Jaiden Ackerson then came
up with a big double that scored both Lundberg and Castenson. Ackerson scored the final run on an error.

Natalie Lambert pitched a perfect game, not allowing a single base runner in the five inning win. She
fanned six Cougar batters in the game. Morgan Castenson went 2 for 2 with two runs scored and three RBIs.
Kearsten Hainzinger was 1 for 3 with the homerun and
two RBI. Natalie Lambert was 2 for 3 with two runs
scored, an RBI and a stolen base. Jaiden Ackerson was 1
for 2 with a double, two RBI , and a run scored and Erica
Rittgers and Kasey Lundberg were each 1 for 3 with a run
scored.

The Jaguar Softball team is now 5-1 on the season and 2-0 in the Twin Lakes conference.

Mary Higby, raised on Lehigh farm,


worked at Hormel, LVCTA
Enjoying retirement years. . .
By Alice Johnson

When asked how she is enjoying her retirement
years, Mary Jane Runyan Higby just wryly smiles and
states that she seems to be busier now than when she was
working!

Mary was born to Alberta and Merle Runyan in
October of 1940 on a farm north of Lehigh. There were
eight children in the family: Duane, Beverly, Dean, Mary,
Gary, Richard, Ronald, and Bruce. Duane is deceased.
The children all attended and graduated from the Lehigh
Public School and through the years they were involved
in various school activities. Although Mary is petite, she
played basketball and softball which she enjoyed very
much.

After her graduation in 1958, Mary attended
AIB Business college in Des Moines for a year and
learned basic secretarial skills. Subsequently, she was
hired by the Hormel Meat Packing Plant in Fort Dodge
and worked at various secretarial positions until the plant
closed in 1982.

In 1959, she married one of her schoolmates,
Dal Higby, at the United Methodist Church in Lehigh
where she has been a faithful member for over 50 years!
Since she loves to sing, she joined the choir. Through the
years, Mary Joined other members and participated in

the many duties required in maintaining the church for


worship. Mary is also a member of the Lehigh Federated
Womans Club and attends their regular monthly meetings.

When Dal and Mary were first married, they
lived in an upstairs apartment in Lehigh. That meant
climbing the stairs up and down two or three times a day
in order to get to work so she got more than her share of
exercise for someone who is pregnant. She recalls that
when her first child, Cheri, was about to be born, she had
to be rushed to the hospital in Fort Dodge for delivery,
just barely making it. A frightening experience!

Two years later, her second daughter, Melody,
was born. Melody is married to Tom Goodrich and resides in Michigan. They are parents of two sons. Cheri
married Archie Wooley and lives in Lehigh. They are
parents of four children.

The Higbys were ambitious and hard-working
people. Dal was employed at the Telephone office in
Fort Dodge initially but then started working for the Fort
Dodge Packing Company and later at the Lehigh Sewer
Pipe and Tile Company. For the most part of his life, Dal
was employed by Webster County working until 2006,
when he succumbed to cancer after being ill for only four
months.

Mary was employed in the office at the
Lehigh Telephone Company for 22 years retiring in
2003. After Dals passing, varying sizes and have them on display.
Mary yearned to travel.
Dal had a passion for trains so through the years
Her first trip was to visit the family would purchase a miniature boxcar or anher daughter and family
Mary Higby continued on page 8...
in Michigan She has also
traveled to other states visiting friends and family.

Mary and Dal had
a love for Black Labrador
dogs and consequently,
adopted one but, unfortunately, it soon died so they
decided to purchase another one whom they named
Buddy. For 13 years, he
became an integral part of
the family. It was a great
loss when he died but the
Higbys kept his memory
alive through the years by
collecting plates with pictures of black labs posing
Melody Dal, Mary and Cheri Higby
in a variety of positions
and hung them on their living room wall. They also
collected statues of labs in
Dal and Mary Higby were married in 1955.

Dayton Review

Harcourt Jail joins Fort Dodge Museum


Front street in 1970's...
Harcourt Jail joins Fort Dodge Museums front street in
1970s

A building that once served as the town jail in
Harcourt is the latest addition to Front Street at the FortMuseum in Fort Dodge.

The frame structure, approximately 15 to 20 feet
in size, was moved into place Thursday Through the efforts of the Iowa National Guard.

Museum curator Roger Natte said he is seeking
information on the age of the structure and when it was
moved from Harcourts main street. It was donated to the
Fort-Museum by Elvin Nahnsen. It had been used as a
storage building on his farm north of Harcourt in recent
years.

The structure contains the large room that originally was divided by jail bars. The windows also are
barred. The building was hauled from Nahnsens farm
to Fort Dodge by members of the Army National Guard
who also placed it on the new foundation. Materials fro
the foundation were donated by Northwest Limestone,
Inc. and labor was supplied by the Steelworkers Union,
Duane (Bill) Crouse and Donald Grell.

The Harcourt Jail was moved from Harcourt in
1928, to the J. Arthur Anderson farm, located one mile
north of Harcourt.

Mr. and Mrs. Elvin Nahnsen, present owners of
this farm, donated it to the Fort Museum in Fort Dodge.

J. Arthur Anderson was the father of Arlene
(Anderson) Hintch of Harcourt.
Move of Harcourt log cabin to Fort Dodge Museum, from
The Gowrie News, June, 1989

Laurel Carsons historic log cabin has a new
home. It has recently been moved to the grounds of the
Fort Museum in Fort Dodge. The cabin was built in 1855
of hand-hewed logs, 25 feet in length. Laurel Carson and
husband, the late Elwin A. Carlson, acquired the cabin in
1967 and moved it near their home in Harcourt where it
was completely restored to its original condition. It took
on the appearance of the days when it was built more than
100 years ago. It was furnished as nearly as possible with
articles and furniture of long ago and was often used as a
guest house and a relic of pioneer days.

The Carlsons first heard of the cabin while visit-

ing friends in 1967. It was located on the Walter Vontree


farm a few miles southwest of the big Des Moines River
Bridge between Stratford and Dayton. The Vontrees had
lived in the modernized cabin for about 20 years prior to
building a new home.

They no longer had any use for the house and
planned to destroy it. The Carlsons decided to purchase the houses and have it moved to their property in
Harcourt.

The cabin was built in 1855 by G.T. Richey who
left his farm and mill in Ohio and brought his family to
Dayton. It was the home of the Richey family for many
years. Many families lived in the cabin in succeeding
years until the Vontrees acquired it.

The Carlsons had the cabin moved, Restoration work was started in the spring of 1968 with Walter
Engquist, a Harcourt carpenter, and Francis Carlson, Mrs.
Carlsons brother-in-law, doing much of the work.

Furnishing the inside of the cabin was a pleasant
task for Laurel.

Much of the furniture came from either her relatives or her husbands family. One of the prized pieces
was a cherry wood dropleaf table which belonged to Laurels great grandparents. The furnishings did not go to
Fort Dodge.

Historical societies, clubs of many kinds, relatives and friends and those from out-of-state have visited
the cabin.


The building that once served as Harcourts jail
was moved to Front Street at the Fort Museum in Fort
Dodge in the 1970s.

other railroad item as a gift. In the front was an engine
and then attached to that were 8 boxcars and at the rear
the caboose. He later added a miniature water tower to
complete his display. They are placed on a 10 foot long
wooden shelf on the opposite living room wall. This wall
is also a photo gallery where Mary hangs numerous
family pictures.

Mary loves to work outside and when one approaches her home, you become mesmerized by her lawn
accessories... Statuaries, wind chimes, hanging flowers,
bird houses, flags, bird feeders and other interesting objects. Mary states that it is difficult to keep bird food on
hand because deer frequently visit the feeders and help
themselves to the bird food. By the side of her house one
cannot help noticing a couple of whimsical small garden
plaques with appropriate inspiring words etched on them.

When a visitor rings her doorbell, the melodic
sound of Jingle Bells alerts Tootsie, her pet Dachshund,
that someone is at the door. When one enters her large
living room, one is mesmerized by the various collections
that she has. It is quite obvious that the Higbys have also
invested in statues of owls of varying sizes strategically
placed around her living room!

Mary has an effectual smile and is well-loved
and respected by her many friends and family. Since her
mother-in-law, Everyl Higby, lives close by, she fre-

Cheri and Melody

quently visits her, also.



When Mary sits on her couch, Tootsie immediately cuddles up on her lap. With a twinkle in her eyes,
she comments that Life, indeed, is GOOD!

Heather Cain, CEO of Stewart Memorial Community Hospital and McCrary Rost Clinics in Lake City,
has submitted her resignation.

Heather Cain, CEO


of SMCH resigns
Remains at SMCH through mid-July...

The Jaguar softball team made the long trip


to Peterson, Iowa for their first Twin Lakes conference
game of the year against Sioux Central. The Jags made
quick work of the Rebels with a dominating 12-2 win in
five innings.

The Jags took the early lead scoring two runs in
the third inning on a walk and two Rebel errors. They
blew the game open in the top of the fourth inning started
by back to back singles by Josie Breitsprecher and Mady
Jaeschke. Sam Alphs walked and Erica Rittgers cleared
the bases with a triple to right. Natalie Lambert then followed with a double to score Rittgers. After two stolen
bases, Kasey Lundberg drove in Lambert on a deep sac
fly to Center. Southeast Valley jumped out to a big 7-0
lead with their five run fourth inning. Sioux Central tried
to rally in the bottom half of the inning by scoring two
runs on two hits and one Jaguar error, but that was all the
scoring the Jaguar defense would allow.

The Jags put the game away in the fifth inning
by scoring another five runs. Kearsten Hainzinger started
the rout with a triple. She scored on a passed ball. Mady
Jaeschke and Sam Alphs started things again by reaching
on back to back walks and advancing on stolen bases.
Erica Rittgers drove in Jaeschke and stole second base.
Both Rittgers and Alphs pinch runner Kenzie Crampton
scored on a deep hit by Natalie Lambert. Kasey Lundberg drove in Lambert on a base hit to finish the rally.
The Jags made quick work of the Rebels in the bottom
half of the inning to finish the game.

Natalie Lambert got the pitching win giving up
just two hits and no earned runs while striking out four

Rebel batters. The Jags cranked out nine hits and stole
11 bases in their dominating win. Erica Rittgers had a
break out night going 2 for 2 with a triple, a walk, three
runs scored, three RBI, and three stolen bases. Natalie
Lambert was 2 for 4 with three runs and three stolen bases, Mady Jaeschke was 1 for 2 with two runs scored and a
walk. Josie Breitsprecher and Kasey Lundberg were both
1 for 3. Breitsprecher scored a run and Lundberg drove
in two RBI. The Jags are now 1-0 in the Twin Lakes
conference and 2-1 overall.

Callender student
wins $1000
scholarship at ICCC
Given by Decker
Family Scholarship. . .


Jacob Ladlie, Callender, was one of two students receiving a $1,000 scholarship from Decker Truck
Lines and the Decker Family Scholarship.

The announcement was made by Iowa Central
Community College. Ladlie is a graduating senior at
Southeast Valley High School in Gowrie.

The other recipient was Anthony Paul, Fort
Dodge. Both students will be attending Iowa Central
Community College.

Heather Cain, CEO of Stewart Memorial Community Hospital and McCrary Rost Clinics in Lake City, has
submitted her resignation. I have not arrived at this decision
lightly, but as a result of thoughtful consideration of what is
best for my family, as we will be looking to relocate to Boone,
Iowa, with my fiance Greg and have the children begin school
there this fall. Please know I am not leaving to take another
position, but rather will be focusing on getting my family established and settled before considering future employment.

Heather reflects on her time at SMCH by sharing,
My experience working as a part of the leadership team at
Stewart Memorial has been very special to me. I value the
experience I have gained and treasure the relationships I have
formed and the friendships that will live on always. Lake City
has been a very welcoming place for the kids and me, and we
have been brought into the Stewart Memorial family with open
arms. I am very proud to have been a part of this community,
this organization and this health system. I am also proud of the
work that we have accomplished in the two and a half years
that I have been blessed to lead this team.

Under Cains direction, the organization achieved
great results. The hospital received national recognition including the Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award for Patient
Safety, Studer Group Excellence in Patient Care Award for
Room Cleanliness, and Des Moines Register Top Workplace
in Iowa, two consecutive years. Cain also led efforts to create a
new mission and vision statement for the organization, as well
as a three year strategic plan.

Cain will remain at SMCH through mid-July. The
search for a new CEO will be led by the SMCH Board of Directors.

Jaguars defeat Humboldt, Manson,


and Woodward

11

Come up short against Sioux Central and Ogden. . .

6/1 Sioux Central /L 1-5 (3-2 (0-1 Conference)



Coming out of the Memorial Day weekend the
Jaguars first challenge of the week was visiting far off
Peterson, IA to match up against the Sioux Central Rebels. This game was also a big one as both teams look to be
on the top half of the conference this season. The Rebels
sent out their ace Mac Prior while the Jaguars sent their
ace Senior Cam Anderson to take the mound. Sadly at
the end of the night it was the Rebels who were celebrating their first conference win but in this case the Jaguars
didnt do enough for themselves to win but more for the
other team committing 4 errors on the night and allowing
all five runs to be unearned runs. It was a tough game to
lose and even tougher considering they win if they played
better defensively. Cam threw a great ball game and was
k
replaced later in the game with Nolan Brand who also
threw admirably; it was just not enough in the end from a
l
team standpoint.
t

The Jags actually had opportunities to strike
more points on the scoreboard but couldnt get that big hit
t
to crack it open. The lone to hits on the night for the Jags
were off the bat of Cade King and Nolan Brand whose
both hits were doubles.
6/2 Humboldt 6-3 W (4-2)

Coming off a tough loss and long road trip the
Jaguars were hoping to be ready to go against always
good Humboldt Wildcats, a team which has had the Jaguars number the last few years. That was not the case
on this night however as the Jaguars finally came away
with a win with a 6 to 3 final score. The Jaguars started
things with their bats collecting 7 hits throughout the
night. Leaders for the Jags were Myles Davis going 2
for 2 which included a double and finishing with 2 RBIs.
Nolan Johnson was not to be outdone also going 2 for 2
and stealing 2 bases as well. Cade King, Sam Berglund
and Nolan Brand were other Jaguars collecting a hit each.
Nolan Brands hit coming off a huge smash that cleared
the fence to give him his first varsity home run and the
first on the year for the Jaguars.

Defensively it was good to see the Jaguars defense step up after the night before and have a solid game.
Pitcher Cade King did a great job pitching on the night,
going the complete game scattering four hits on 3 runs
while allowing 4 walks. This was a win we needed
dearly, with Cade throwing an excellent game. It was
nice to finally beat Humboldt for once, said Coach Anderson.
6/3 Manson NW Webster W 8-3 (5-2(1-1)

The Jaguars hosted Manson NW Webster Friday night in Dayton for their first conference game of the
young season. The game which was varsity first due to
impending bad weather didnt start the way the Jaguars
would have wanted as the Cougars put 3 runs across in
the first inning which started to make coaches, fans a little nervous. Nolan Johnson started on the mound for the
Jaguars and threw well considering a small zone which
didnt include the low strike in it. After a shaky first inning, Nolan settled into the zone and threw four more innings not allowing two hits and no runs. Myles Davis
came in to finish off the last two innings for the Jaguars
to seal the win.

Offensively the Jaguars all spread out their hits
with no Jaguar collecting more than one hit each. Dakota
Jaeschke, Nolan Brand, Sam Berglund, Nolan Johnson,
Mitchell Reck, and Cameron Anderson were the Jaguars
collecting hits with Nolan Driving in 3 runners while
Mitchell plated two runners. It was a tale of two innings
as the cougars did all their scoring in the first inning,
while the Jaguars scored their 8 in the second inning.

First pitch honoree on the night was Southeast
valley Graduate Josh Gibbons. Josh has been very active in almost all music events during his time at South-

east Valley. He also sang at all home varsity basketball


games. He also sang a beautiful rendition for the ballgame. Congrats Josh!
6/4 ROLAND STORY CLASSIC
OGDEN 1-3 L (5-3)

A new entry into the schedule this year was the
Roland Story Tournament. The beautiful field was the
site for the first game between the Ogden Bulldogs and
the Jaguars. Again it was a tale of making the plays as
Ogden scored all three runs off a misplayed flyball which
came at a perfect time for the bulldogs as they had bases
loaded at the time. The hit scored three runs which was
enough in the end for a final score of 1 to 3. The Jaguars had a couple of chances to score more runs they just
couldnt get that timely hit to score any runners. The Jaguars made some great plays, mainly getting out of a jam
with bases loaded and no outs in the fifth inning. On the
flip side the Jaguars some misjudgments and misplays on
hits and on the base paths. Myles Davis took the mound
and kept the bulldogs off the scoreboard until the fourth
inning where one hit scored all their runs. Ryan Gustafson came in and did a great job of relieving Myles.
Ryan pitched two innings giving up no hits and pitching
us out of the bases loaded no outs situation in the fifth.

The Jaguars out hit the bulldogs three to five
while again no Jaguar had a multiple hit day. Ryan Gustafson and Cade King were 1 for 2, with Cade King collecting two stolen bases. Cam Anderson and Sam Berglund were both 1 for 3 while Dakota Jaeschke collected
the other Jaguar hit on the day.
Woodward Academy 13-3 W (6-3)

After a tough loss to Ogden the Jaguars got
back on track as they handled Woodward Academy with
a 13 to 3 rout in the fifth inning. Leading the Jaguars was
Myles Davis going 3 for 3 which included a double and a
home run. On the game Myles had 2 RBIs and crossing
the plate himself once. Freshmen Jackson Housken had a
good game at the plate going 2 for 3 while collecting his
first two hits of his young varsity career. Senior Cameron Anderson also went 2 for 3 not to be outdone by the
freshmen. Rounding out the hits on the game were Nolan
Brand and Dakota Jaeschke each having a hit, Dakota had
also had an insane five stolen bases on the game while the
Jaguars really were running wth a total 13 stolen bases on
the game.

The Jaguars used a trio of Junior pitchers including starter Nolan Brand, Dakota Jaeschke, and finishing
the game Sam Berglund. All three controlled the bats for
Woodward and together finished with a 4.20 ERA.
