Southeast Valley 5th and 6th grade


tackle football charity; Breast Cancer
Heartland Bank and Security Savings Bank match funds...

The Southeast Valley 5th and 6th grade tackle
football team raised money for a breast-cancer charity
during the month of October.

During the games the players wore pink to promote awareness and pink T-shirts were sold for fans to
wear. Team members went through the stands during the
games asking for donations.

They collected $150. Security Savings Bank

and Heartland Bank both matched that amount.



This made it possible for a $450 donation to
the breast cancer division of the Trinity Foundation at
UnityPoint Health in Fort Dodge.

The donation may go towards things such as
wigs and bras for breast cancer patients in our community. Way to go Jaguars!

A trip well made...

d
s

It was good to have a chauffeur to drive me up
nnorth not long ago. My younger friend had vacation
-days that werent completely filled and offered to take
-me. It turned out to be an enjoyable jaunt for both of us.
On our way I had her turn off the highway at Boxholm to
-see a few of my childhood sights.
-
Since we anticipated being in Dayton a little beefore noon we didnt do the whole tour but I showed her
the home my parents owned, their final abode in Boxholm
.and the nearby Methodist Church where I attended Suneday School, was baptized and confirmed, attended MYF
tand occasionally did some musical offering. We didnt
have time to stop and see if we could go in. It used to be
&churches were not locked, especially in the day time and
.anyone could enter but times have changed. We have
.found that out recently in my Des Moines church with
a wallet and car keys pilfered during the Sunday School
hour at that.

We drove past the Stark place where the barn
still stands, the barn where I found my beloved Tina, the
runt Rat Terrier. She was my constant companion for
several years and when she left this earth I cried buckets
of tears. I swore to myself never to fall in love with a
-pet, especially a dog again. I have to admit I came close
though. We travelled on north on a street that wasnt there
din 1946 and though we didnt go clear east to it, I pointed
Aout the place where I last lived in Boxholm and saw that
the barn was still standing but the attached chicken house
apparently gone. It looked as if there was a new structure built across the street, the place where second grade
teacher Mabel Bergquist and her father lived at that time.
That street dead ended and those were the only two residences on that end of the street.

We turned left toward the highway. Absent was
the old depot as were the old Quaker elevator and the
old Farmers Elevator and the railroad. The new elevator
buildings are very impressive. When my children were
young there was still the railroad and the old elevators. We often came through Boone and what was then
referred to as the back way. When we got to the intersection just north of the Paul Chingren place there was
a railroad crossing and the boys, John and Rex, spotting
the alligator (elevator) would beg us to let them out to
walk the RR on into town. We never did let them do it
as we were always expected at Grandma and Grandpas
or another relatives place and there wasnt time to allow
them to do that. I have always regretted that we didnt
make a special trip with no time schedule and let them
take that hike.

As we approached the highway I pointed out the
Lutheran Church to Sue and tried to explain the additions
made. I also had told her that the church was originally
built out in the country on the northeast corner of that Chingren intersection but at some time (way before mine)
it was very carefully hauled to town. The old parsonage
remained out in the country and my last memory of it was
being the home of the family of one of my classmates,
Keith Norlin. I told her the large house now standing to
the north of the church was originally the church town
parsonage which I heard has been sold. The house in the
country has been long gone.

We hit the highway and headed to Dayton. Between Boxholm and Dayton we noticed road construction signs but saw nothing until suddenly there it was!
What was it? Was there a new angled northwest/southeast
thoroughfare going in I hadnt heard about? Scene soon
forgotten and on to Dayton! It was only on the return trip
I suddenly said, Oh, yeah! Thats that ----- pipeline!
Look at what has been displaced! No wonder some of
the landowners were fighting so strongly! Will they get

that all back in shape to enable regular farming or other


activities by next spring? Looked to me as if a lot to do
but what do I know?

We enjoyed our pizza burgers and fries at the
Community Grocery and glad we came on Friday instead
of Monday or we wouldnt have gotten them. Its a good
place to get some tasty home cookin so hope their plan to
re-open next month takes place. We went to the Review
office and had a great visit with Glenn and Mary Ann and
then before leaving town stopped to visit an old (we are
old) classmate.

While in town we drove to the south end of Main
Street to turn around. At the end of the street was a sign
with the big letters COMMUNITY EVENTS. The rest
of the board was blank! That seems to be the way many
Iowa small rural towns are going. I did notice the stately
building housing The Iron Saddle Saloon and remarked
to Sue, I wonder if that was built and used as an Opry
House. It sure looks like one. My queries confirmed
my guess. I noticed a number of those stately buildings that probably were originally built for another use.
Some appeared to still be holding a business and others questionable. I had previously learned that the building that now houses The Review was the once famous
LeValleys (did I spell it correctly?) Cafe, a very lively
place in my time though I worked in a grocery store on
Saturday nights so never got to go to Dayton to the teen
dances there. Of course some rumored that it was not a
nice place. After all DANCING? But it was a good
place for the kids.

Then time to leave Dayton and one quick jaunt
up Boxholms Main Street to highlight the places that
are what ares and what they were. Some were gone totally. Some (most) were vacant and one in particular, the
old Steen Drugstore building looks like it is crumbling
away. Sad but a reality. It is MY hometown and I still
love it.

I would like to extend a heart


felt "thank you" to all who blessed me with
prayers, visits and cards during my hospital stay and rehabilitation. I also owe the
Gowrie Rescue Unit a big thank you for
their exceptional service. Last but not least,
thank you to my sweet neighbors for their
help and concern. I'm proud to
call this community, home.
God's blessings to you all,

Iowa pheasant season begins Oct. 29;


bird numbers high for county, state
Harvest depends on weather, hunter numbers. . .

Iowas pheasant hunting tradition will begin another chapter on October 29, when nearly 60,000 hunters
will pursue ringnecks during the season opening weekend
in fields across the state.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources annual August roadside survey predicts Iowa pheasant hunters can expect to have good hunting this fall, and likely
more company in the field. The optimistic mood is a natural
outcome of five consecutive years of higher population surveys and hunter harvests.

The survey found an average of 21 pheasants per
30 mile route statewide, with higher counts coming from
counties crossing the state diagonally from northwest to
southeast. The statewide average in 2015 was 24 pheasants
per route.

At this point, it appears much of our corn and
beans will be out of the fields by the opener, which will
concentrate birds to grass areas and make hunters happy. If
we have good weather, I think we could see a bump in hunter numbers and birds harvested, said Todd Bogenschutz,
upland wildlife biologist for the Iowa DNR.

Bogenschutz said he has noticed more birds near

field edges and along the roads as the crops have been coming out.

Ive been seeing some birds around on my way
in to the office and have been getting a few phone calls from
around the state from people also seeing birds, he said.
The birds are here, we need hunters to return.

Iowas pheasant population could sustain a harvest
of 500,000 roosters, but it will not reach that level until there
are 90,000 hunters afield. In 2015, some 55,000 hunters harvested 270,000 Iowa roosters.

Hunters can read the August roadside survey, review hunting regulations, buy a license and find a place to
hunt online at www.iowadnr.gov/hunting
Pheasant hunting
regulations unchanged

Regulations covering pheasant hunting are unchanged from last year there is a limit of three roosters per
day, 12 roosters in possession, and hunters are required to
wear one piece of solid blaze orange clothing. If hunting public land, be sure to check if steel shot is required. If cleaning
the birds in the field, be sure to leave the head, fully feathered
wing or leg attached while transporting the bird home.

The Southeast Valley Jaguars lost to District Champion Carroll Kuemper Friday night 31-20 but once again the
Jaguars qualified for the playoffs.

With a 5-2 District record and third place district
finish the Jags advanced to the playoffs for the third straight
year since whole grade sharing.

The Jaguars had won five consecutive games and
with a win against Carroll Kuemper they would have shared
the district championship.

We have lost to Kuemper 8-1, South Central
Calhoun 7-2 and Bishop Garrigan which is 9-0. It is hard
to get mad at the boys when they are competing with teams
who have those records and good seasons, said coach Mike
Swieter.

The coaches are hurt with this loss but they know
the boys gave everything they had, asserted coach Swieter.

Coach Swieter continued, Only 25% of the teams
across the state of Iowa make it to the playoffs and the Jags
are there again. The boys worked hard to put themselves into
this situation and deserve this and plan on taking advantage

of it.

He added, The coaches are very proud of the boys
for not giving up when we were 1-2. We have faced adversity all season but never gave up. We will not let this game
affect how we prepare for whoever the state matches us up
with.

Southeast Valley trailed 17-6 at the end of the first
half after taking a 6-0 first quarter lead. The scoring was
even in the second half.

Affirmed coach Swieter, Be proud of what these
boys have accomplished. We were both small class A football teams and have come together and made the playoffs
three years in a row in Class 2A and we have had three
straight winning seasons. That is something any school
would be proud of.

Swieter noted that the Jaguar football team turned
their season around started after losing to SCC 12-14. The
only chance we had of sharing the district title and have a
chance was to win the next five games, Swieter affirmed.

During that time the Jags won five straight and

wins they also tallied up the points in winning four of those
games by 17 or more which helped the Jags grab one of the
two wild card playoff spots.

Making the playoffs is much harder than in the
past. Only 16 teams advance compared to 32 in previous
years. With a 5-2 District record and third place finish the
Jags advanced to the playoffs for the third straight year since
joining.

Nolan Brand was 8-14 in passing including two
touchdown passes. One touchdown pass went for 79 yards
to wide receiver Nolan Johnson.

Jags prove worthy opponent for top


rated Carroll Kuemper in 31-20 loss
Four turnovers are costly. . .

The Southeast Valley Jaguars played well as a
team against Carroll Kuemper, but four turnovers doomed
their chances. But the Jags proved they could match up to
top rated Carroll Kuemper Friday night.

The Jag defense started the Carroll Kuemper
game very tough forcing a 3 and out. On the second play
on offense Aaron Swieter electrified the crowd with a 51
yard touchdown run.

Things were looking good for our team, stated
coach Swieter.

But it was three Jaguar turnovers that led to 17
points for Carroll Kuemper in the first half.

The Jag defense forces another three and out. The
Jag offense had a nice seven play drive going but fumbles
the ball.

The Jag defense allows a small drive of nine plays
but stopped Kuemper from scoring. The Jags led 6-0 after
one quarter.

The Jaguars engineered an 11 play drive but had

Thank you!
The Southeast Valley coaches and players
would like to thank everyone for their support
this season. There are so many people who
take time out of their lives to help the football
program and it is very much appreciated.
Please continue to support the boys as we
start preparing for postseason play.
The boys have worked hard continuing
to build our program where everyone knows
who Southeast Valley is. Once again thanks to
everyone for your help and support.

to punt.

Five plays later Kuemper gets it first touchdown
and extra point. The Jags fumbled on their first play and
give it right back.

Kuemper scored two plays later and made the
extra point.

Three plays later the Jags throw an interception.
Kuemper drove down the field but the Jags held them to a
field goal and it was 17-6 at the half.

Down 11 by three turnovers the Jags would not
give up. Kuemper started second half strong with a 12 play
scoring drive to take commanding lead 24 - 6.

Aaron Swieter started next drive off with a 36
yard run and then catches were made by Dakota Jaeschke,
Ryan Gustafson, and a 30 touchdown yard pass from Nolan Brand to Nolan Johnson made the score 20-12.

Kuemper came right back and scored again to
make score 31 to 12.

Two plays later Nolan Brand connected with Nolan Johnson for a 79 yard touchdown pass. Nolan Brand
hit Dakota Jaeschke for the two point conversion to make
score 20-31.

The Jag defense forced Kuemper to punt. There
was a 31 yard pass to Dakota Jaeschke and a 24 yarder to
Nyles Johnson. But that was followed with an interception in the end zone.

Jags got the ball back but as time was ending we
needed to punt instead of go for it because the 11 point
loss was crucial in making the playoffs. The Jags tied
with Centerville with the exact same record and exact same
points so that was big keeping them out at the end.

62% of Iowa soybeans,


33% of corn harvested


Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey
commented on the Iowa Crops and Weather report released by the USDA National Agricultural Statistical Service. The report is released weekly from April through
October.

Iowas corn and soybean harvest is moving
forward, but remains fairly slow due to the damp weather
and periodic rain, Northey said. The 33 percent of corn
and 62 percent of beans that have been combined remain
behind the 5-year average. Several days of dry weather
would be very helpful and
allow farmers to make significant progress on both
corn and bean harvest.

amended (P.L. 97-35), to undertake the following project:

Project Title: Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program

Authority; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part
1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from
the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared
and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part
