“Where Do We Go From Here?”
Babbling Brook
The time is upon us
Thick and thin, 20 years, some advances, some retreats, and yet, Plainview does it again.
The new Plainview Public Library will be opening soon, where’s our
local hype-man ready to make sure everyone fully appreciates this moment.
The same type of excitement happened when the fire department got a
long-overdue upgrade to their building, the addition of a new public library
has more to offer than a new place to store books and introduce people to
computers (among the 100s of other things to do.)
It invests in our local community – to a point that people won’t fully understand for another 70 years.
Plainview has always lagged a bit, not in the inception of ideas or the
thoughts and progression of those ideas, but in the action part.
We’re viewed as progressive – I’ve heard my contemporaries always
discuss that. We’re at the forefront of discussion, but we’re typically one
of the last to get things rolling and finished.
We certainly aren’t the first to have a brand new library in our offerings
to the community. We weren’t the first to have new pool. People have been
replacing sewer systems for a long time around us. Communities have revitalized their downtown a clear 10 years before we attempted a few years
ago. Even our water tower is now around 20 years old.
Everything has its cycle – Plainview just happens to be on the outerlower circle of the that cycle, right before the rubber hits the pavement
again, we make it out.
I’m, at times, an “I told you so” type of guy – and I firmly believe that
thinking positively and cleanly airing negativity, being harsh and open with
criticism and discussing things thoroughly are the only ways to make sure
that the right thing is being done.
Two sides of an argument are necessary – not only for the determination
of the “right” side, but also to make sure that you’re not missing out on
any points that could affect the outcome.
There’s really no point in discussing things if the only information given
are “pros” or “cons” alone.
Sometimes that’s a terrible process - it can ruin people’s ability to talk
with one another. There’s always some part of us that determines if someone is on the “wrong” side of a conversation, it means they don’t support
what’s going on or what decisions are being made.
I found myself on that side of the Library conversation a few times, but
that doesn’t mean I didn’t support it. Of all the people in Plainview, I like
paper. I like books. I like reading. I don’t think our civilization can survive
without the written word, literature in general and the historical preservation of our very society.
I was just discussing this topic with someone a few days ago - in another 20 years, how many of us will be able to reproduce or even find our
photos? We run the risk with digital photography of having an entire generation of pictoral history eliminated.
Twenty years from now, there will be no flea markets with stacks of pictures. There will be no paper copies of pictures of “old Plainview” and
there will be few and far between prints of baby pictures, graduation pictures and the like. We don’t have Harold Maucks any more storing up thousands of pictures to record history just for the sake of enjoying people.
What we do have, however, is brand-spanking new library - good for all
ages, and put together by a bunch of people devoting nigh and all 20 years
of their lives to the betterment of Plainview.
It adds not only a structure and a service, but it greatly increases the very
value of our community, making it one step harder to lose, to move away
from or to outlive and out-do.
By: Michael Holton
City Administrator
Community building is a nonstop activity and it is hard to rest on your laurels
after any one success. Plainview has
many fingers into many pots and these
are all part of concentrated efforts
throughout the past few years.
There is no time for rest. We have
been a part of a
new resurgence
and growth in addressing many of
the needs that
Plainview has.
Just during the
past 15 years we
amount of change
in the community
with several projects that were needed.
The economy has hit the private sector
pretty hard and we have lost businesses
but we have also gained others. This is
The latest project that will come to
fruition is the new Plainview Library.
This project was a labor of love on the
behalf of many citizens over the last fifteen years. On May 2nd, the new library
will become a reality.
The same can be said for the economic development of the community.
It was during this period of time that we
were able to guide and develop Husker
Ag to locate their operation of ethanol
production east of Plainview. There
were a lot of people who put a lot of
work into getting that business to come
here. There were several surveys and
needs assessments that were also put out
to the community and a new economic
development program for the city was
one of the results of those surveys.
The first item on the list of economic
development projects was to work with
a retailer like Family Dollar to get them
to come to Plainview. After months of
negotiations with the corporate office,
Roger Synovec and I were able to secure
the land and a store to come to the community.
The economic arm of the city also
reached out to help form the Pierce
County Economic Development Corporation (PCEDC) with Osmond, Pierce
and Hadar to work on a regional level
and that included several cooperative efforts like Central Valley Ag (CVA)
which located a base of operations in
Pierce County on Highway #81 as well
as several other businesses in all of the
Another effort that came out of the
economic development efforts was the
introduction of the LB840 plan which
guides many of the latest efforts including Powerlift which is now in the old
SiDump’r building.
There is also the signage program
which has helped existing businesses
like Johnson Repair, Serendipity, Plainview Commodities, Northern Nebraska
Insurance get new signage dollars to
help increase their visibility.
The school has also been active in
several renovation efforts with the most
recent being the new flooring in the old
Other changes in the community include the new parish hall for St. Paul’s
Catholic Church, Mike McManaman’s
building, Midwest Bank, Subway, CHI
Home Health moving into downtown, a
complete downtown historic renovation
project, a new fire hall with the city and
the rural fire department combining,
twelve houses and buildings being torn
down, new electronic sign next to the library, new swimming pool, renovated
running track at the school, new scoreboards for the football fields, baseball
fields, new residential homes, over a
dozen existing homes rehabilitated
through grants, new restaurant facilities
in Serendipity and Baileyz, Casey’s expansion, new child care facility for Zion
Lutheran that is open to the public,
Jazzercise, new city offices in the old
fire hall, new cell phone towers, technology center for the Plainview Telephone Company, all new fiber optic for
the entire community, D&M Dairy,
Madison County Bank, renovation of
the Band Shell in the park, Senior Center renovation to become the Plainview
Social Center, Frisbee golf course, announcer booth for the Legion Ball fields,
expansion of the Klown Doll Museum,
renovation of the Historical Museum,
new signs donated and upgraded for the
east and west entrances to the community, white picket fence on the Memorial Cemetery replacing the old wire
fence, new flowering berm in Chilver’s
Park, new building in the park for equipment needs, and others that I am sure I
To top this all off, we were also a site
selection for the six-time academy
award nominated movie “Nebraska.”
So what is next?
It appears that we are in line for a new
restaurant, new playground equipment
for the city parks, housing expansion,
and new businesses wanting to come to
our town.
So, as you can see, there is no time
for rest and all of us need to work towards the future of Plainview so that we
can all be proud of the community we
call home.

LB959 passes to slow
increase in property taxes moving
By Seth Olson,
Nebraska News Service
LINCOLN—On the third to last
day of the session Tuesday, April
12, senators wasted no time by
working through multiple bills.
While many bills passed, a bill to
bring back Nebraska’s winner-takeall system distributing presidential
electoral votes failed, after senators
rejected a cloture motion on LB10.
The bill, which would award all
five electoral votes to the winner of
the state’s popular vote, was introduced by Sen. Beau McCoy of
Currently, two Electoral College
votes are awarded to the state’s popular vote winner while the state’s
three congressional districts are
each awarded one electoral vote.
The cloture motion offered by
McCoy to cease further debate on
the bill and take an immediate vote
failed, 32-17. It was only one vote
short of the 33 required to take a
vote on the bill.
Other bills saw more success.
LB960, introduced by Sen. Jim
Smith of Papillion, passed on a 480 vote.
It will create a $450 million transportation infrastructure bank to fund
new roads and bridges, including
the state’s expressway system.
The money will first come in July
from a one-time transfer of $50 mil-
lion from the state’s cash reserve
fund while the rest will be collected
from state motor fuel tax from 2016
through 2033.
LB959, introduced by Sen. Kate
Sullivan of Cedar Rapids, passed
47-0 and is intended to slow the increase in property taxes.
It adjusts the state’s school aid
formula by eliminating the minimum levy adjustment at the end of
the 2016-17 school fiscal year. It reduces state aid for schools with a
levy below $0.95 per $100 valuation.
It will limit the amount school
districts across the state can levy to
pay for projects relating to life
safety, environmental hazards, accessibility barriers and mold in
school buildings or school grounds.
New projects will be funded
under a three cent levy, which may
not be used for construction projects.
Another bill, LB1038, also passed
with ease on a 48-0 vote. Introduced
by Sen. Al Davis of Hyannis, the
bill will allow water currently being
used for generating hydropower to
be used to maintain stream flow for
fish, wildlife and recreation.
A task force will be given $1 million a year to remove invasive plant
species that reduce stream flows.
Next Wednesday, April 20, is the
final day of the Legislative session.

Moving day is approaching this
Thursday and Friday. We are asking
for those that can physically carry
boxes to help us out starting at 9:00
a.m. on Thursday.
Please be patient with us as we will
have to close the old library to get
settled into our beautiful new facility.
Opening our new library would
not have been possible without all of
you, your donations and the dedication of many people in this community.
Our librarian, Donna
Christiansen, deserves a lot of thanks
for all her behind-the-scenes work to
help this new library become a reality.
Thanks again to all of you for your
support, donations and patience during this exciting time.

Top schools attend Plainview Invite
By: Larry Knaak
Head Coach
Four of the top C and D schools
were in attendance at the Plainview
Invitational Golf meet on April 16th.
There was a total of five strokes
separating the top four teams with
Creighton taking the championship
with 336.
West Holt and Randolph tried for
second at 339. Stanton came in fourth
with 341 despite having Brook Klinetobe as the gold medalist with a score
of 73. Chase Largen with 75, Mason
Hale with 76, and Andrew Schnoor
with 78 were the top four medalists.
Plainview had their low team score
for the year with 398.
Tyler Masat let the Pirates as he
was one stroke out of medaling with a
92. Masat opened with a 45 that is his
best round of the year. A lost ball kept
him from a much lower score Masat
played bogie golf with the exception
of two holes on his back nine.
Jake Lingenfelter got off to a rough
start and never was in rhythm to open
with a 51. This was Lingenfelter’s
first time playing in the number one
position. After two double bogies to
start the back nine, Lingenfelter finished with 46.
Alex Haase shot 50 on the front
and then set a personal best 9-hole
score of 47 on the back to give him a
personal best of 97 for an 18-hole
score. Haase continues to play better
each time out.
Kenny Hart ended the team scoring
with a 112. Hart played good golf except for a stretch of 5 holes that accounted for 40 strokes of his total
score. When Hart learns not to try to
make up for a bad shot with a super
shot he can avoid this type of a
Nathan Choat’s score of 132 was
not used. Choat is continuing to find
a rhythm in his swing that he can
Jason Gutz, being released from
rehab played his first competitive
round of golf. Gutz shot a respective
round on the front of 63. His back
nine had four holes that were respectable but Gutz having never
played 18 holes before tired out to finish at 76.
“The Pirates continue to slowly improve and with a few exceptions, I
was satisfied with the progress being
made. A lot of these same teams come
back to Plainview for districts so the

At Leigh, April 13
The Plainview golf team traveled
to Leigh on April 13th for the Patriot
Even though the Pirates finished
eighth, there were several good things
that happened. The Pirates were
short-handed as Tyler Masat was unable to attend because of sickness.
With Jake Lingenfelter having a
front nine score of 38 to lead the field
for the first round, the Pirates set a
new low nine-hole team score of 210.
Lingenfelter was helped by Alex
Haase with a career low nine-hole
score of 49 and Kenny Hart with 54.
Nathan Choat struggled as the lack of
playing time caught up to him as he
had 69.
On the back nine, Lingenfelter
started out poorly and with a triple
bogie shot 44. This allowed Lingenfelter to tie for third in the tournament.
Haase continued his good play on the
back nine as only a score of seven on
a hole left him with a 50. Haase’s
score of 99 gave him a personal best
for a 9-hole and 18-hole score.
Kenny Hart set a personal best
nine-hole score on the back as he shot
52. This also set a career 18-hole
score of 106.
Nathan Choat continued to struggle
on the back nine. Even though his
score of 67 does not seem like it, he
played much better as he ended his
Triangular, April 12
Plainview hosted a triangular golf
meet between Plainview, NiobraraVerdigre, and Clearwater-Orchard on
Tuesday, April 12th.
Although Ryan Wilhelm of Clearwater-Orchard was the medalist,
Plainview won 222 as Clearwater-Orchard had 229 and Niobrara-Verdigre
had 259.
Tyler Masat with a second place
finish of 50 led the Plainview team.
Masat played fairly steady golf with
the exception of two middle holes.
Masat was able to shake off his frustration to end on a good note except
for an out-of-bounds.
Jake Lingenfelter started off his
round 10 over after three holes but
settled down to finish with 52.
Kenny Hart was able to overcome a
double-digit hole and shoot his low
round of the year of 57. Hart is learning better course management on his
way to improvement.
Nathan Choat ended the team scoring with 63. Choat has been busy
with many activities and has been unable to do a lot of practicing. Choat
was able to shake off the rust after 3
holes and play some good golf.
Alex Haase’s 66 was not used in
the team scoring. Haase is another
member of the team who has to learn
to get a better start. Haase has done
well despite the fact that he had never
played much golf before.
Since all teams had several beginners on their teams, a reserve meet
was held.
The reserves played from the gold
tees. Niobrara-Verdigre won with
260. Clearwater-Orchard had 268 and
Plainview did not have a full team
for an overall score, though Wes
Vaughn was silver medalist with a 63.
Chris Camey of Niobrara-Verdigre
was medalist with 53. Brady Scott
with 77 and Troy Donner with 82
completed the scoring. Both Scott
and Donner had missed three days of
practice because of attending the FFA
All three of these are in their first
competitive action and have had to
learn many aspects of the action.

If the Board was concerned about
the increase in the Open cost affecting number of entries, “no problemo,”
as is said in some kind of lingo.
The 120 slots were filled about as
fast as Kathi could write down the
names and count the money. The
Golfers who are non-members outnumber the Members about 80 to 40.
The Board could have done an economic study of supply and demand
and really jacked the cost up to make
some decent money instead of a paltry
10-12 percent.
Eventually, the locals will learn if
the Open is held, “They will come.”
That has been true for the last 30 years
anyway, but not forever.
A little recap that is not “Gospel,”
but should be pretty close: there is a
documented Open in the 50s that
hosted 136 golfers in one day which
was an exception as most of the tourneys in the 60s and 70s had 100 or
less. Just show up, sign up, and pay
$15 and whack away.
The membership was not full and a
new member could buy a share on
sale for $75. This continued until the
late 80s when the membership was
filled to the 300 allowed in the bylaws with share buyouts going for
$300 or $500 and the Open filled up
at the same time.
So the line-ups on the morning of
April 15th began with the interested
parties showing up earlier and earlier
each year. One year was notable in
that a “Gentleman?” signed up 48 entries, which cause the Board to enact
the rule that one man could only sign
up two foursomes, which still stands
About 2000, there might be 20 people waiting for hours, so a couple of
Nuts made breakfast for a few years
so the Guys could eat together, and
tell golfing tales so the time would
pass faster.
Then, in 2005-2006 a big chance
was taken by the Board to host a twoday Open.
The Manager was a spunky young
Pro named Toby Thompson, who was
positive it wouldn’t fail, and he was
right. The Open continues to fill each
year, and as the golfing ability of the
entries improve, the size of the Calcutta purse increases.
An opinion as to the success of the
Plainview Open in contrast to so
many others in the State that have
gone under: many Golfers like to play
in a real golf tournament. A Golf
Course that is fun to play, and is kept
in excellent condition; volunteers who
put in a few hours up to gobs of hours;
decent pries to those who win and
place in fights plus the Calcutta.
Two weeks until the first Stag, and
then real articles can be written instead of just blather.

City Council discusses
opening new C&D site
The Plainview City Council met on
April 12th at 7 p.m. to cover a number
of business items, including approving several Keno grants for public
projects, hear reports from city officials, and take action on a number of
city business items.
The council approved four separate
Keno grants to area local groups and
their projects. The groups and grant
amounts included the Plainview Ball
Backers for $5,000.00, the Girl Scouts
for $1,000.00, Plainview Area Rec
Soccer for $2,000.00, and the Plainview Historical Society for $4,592.00.
Each group applied for the grant
with specific projects in mind when
requesting funds.
The Ball Backers will be upgrading
the baseball fields, buying a windscreen for the Legion field, and purchasing picnic tables for the little
league fields.
The Historical Society will be purchasing and hiring a contractor to replace windows and frames.
The Area Rec Soccer will be using
the money to purchase a new painting
machine to mark fields before games,
as well as new paint, soccer balls,
nets, and flags for practice and games.
The Girl Scouts will be improving
the Girl Scout building in the Band
Shell park by installing new drywall,
insulation, and paint so that it can be
used year round.
City Superintendent Report
The new city superintendent, Rollie
Cederburg, was present to report the
status of the current C&D Site.
He told council members that the
current cell where garbage is being
dumped has filled up faster than had
been anticipated. To be able to continue to be able to provide service to
members of the community, the city
may need to dig a new cell site and
close the current one to avoid an interruption to the city and others who
use the facility.
The City Clerk, Kelly Pendergast,
also alerted council members to the
fact that the Nebraska Department of
Environmental Quality requires cities
to budget for a closure fund to make
sure sites are closed according to state
regulation. This fund is approximately
$10,000 behind what the NDEQ requires.
City Administrator, Mike Holton,
said that these funds are budgeted for
through the city’s general fund. He
also noted that historically, the C&D
site usually cost the city money to
provide the service to the community.
In recent years, however, the site has
been bringing in revenue for the city.
Council members discussed the possibility of raising rates slightly for
non-local members that use the site to
cover the additional costs to closing
one site and opening a new one.
In Other City Business
- Heard that the new Plainview Library will be open on May 2. The official opening and ribbon cutting
ceremony will be June 4th.
-Approval for a Special Liquor License for the Library Foundation for
June 4th. A wine tasting event is being
planned for the official opening to
allow people to see the new building.
- The council went into closed executive session to discuss a raise for
the City Administrator, Mike Holton.
After coming out of closed session,
the council tabled the issue for the
next meeting.
- The council approved a payment
to A&R Construction for $38,823.05,
which also included a change order
for the street improvement project for
an additional $8,032.56. The council
also approved payments to RaDec
Construction for $101,290.64 and to
the Nebraska Department of Economic Development for $975.00.
- The City approved the hiring of
three employees recommended by the
Park Board. The employees, Dylan
Moore, Blake Christiansen, and Jaden
Wingert, will maintain the park area
for the upcoming summer months.
- The council approved a fee for the
use of the use of Community Hall for
events and large gatherings. The fee
will be $50, which includes the deposit and a $25.00 non-refundable

Risinger family donates new
grave stones as memorials
It took 115 years before the descendants of the Emmira Jane (Beggs)
and Leonard Abraham Risinger family gathered together at the Chadron
cemetery to place memorial flowers
on the new grave stones that the family recently donated.
Several years ago it came to the attention that there were no grave markers. This past summer, new grave
markers were placed. A group of 19
people gathered together for a weekend in Chadron to pay tribute to their
long-forgotten relatives.
The youngest, Martha Olive
Risinger, was only seven years old
when she passed away in 1901. Florence Edith Risinger was almost 21

A few of the six companies have
already begun pre-season selection
campaigns, contacting customers, but
all customers have until the April 28
at midnight deadline to call in or return their card to “lock in” their rates
under the terms offered by the companies.

“A System That Cares”
By Governor Pete Ricketts
April 12, 2016
Providing services and a safety net
for the most vulnerable among us is
one of the core duties of state government. This is an expression of the
pro-life values that underpin our way
of life. From our
foster care system to behavioral
health services,
the state deeply
invests in the
physical, social,
and emotional
thousands of Nebraskans every
The primary agency that provides
services for the most vulnerable Nebraskans is the Nebraska Department
of Health and Human Services
(DHHS). It is no secret that the
agency has faced some challenges in
the past. Under fresh transformational leadership, however, the department has found a new direction.
Last year for the first time, our foster
care system met all six federal standards. Earlier this year, DHHS announced the creation of a new
integrated Medicaid managed care
program, which will coordinate physical health, behavioral health, and
pharmacy programs to simplify access for clients. Last month, call wait
times at our ACCESSNebraska economic assistance call centers fell to a
new low of 1 minute and 3 seconds,
down from a high of almost 24 minutes in August 2014.
The good news from DHHS keeps
building. This past week, DHHS and
I announced the creation of a new behavioral health System of Care for
children. This new program will integrate behavioral health services by
connecting and coordinating the work
of state child-serving agencies, nonprofits, local government organizations, behavioral health care
providers, families, and patient advocates. The strategic plan that will
serve as the basis for the System of
Care included the feedback of over
1000 stakeholders.
Behavioral health services are an
important part of how we care for our
most vulnerable citizens. According
to the Data Resource Center for Child
and Adolescent Health, over 37,000

children in Nebraska experience behavioral health disorders. Additionally, about 16,000 Nebraska
adolescents ages 12-17 had at least
one major depressive episode in
2014, according to the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health
Services Administration.
There is no question it can be confusing and oftentimes challenging for
families to access behavioral health
services for their children in Nebraska. Old approaches to delivering
services have been marked by fragmented service delivery and high
rates of out-of-community placements. With the new System of Care,
DHHS and its partners will deliver
services in a more effective and customer-oriented manner. This new delivery method will eliminate the need
for families to navigate multiple systems to find services to meet the
needs of their children.
Over the next year, DHHS will be
laying the groundwork for the System
of Care. The agency will implement
a phased work plan, build a database
of all behavioral health funding
sources, and develop a plan to inform
partners, families, and stakeholders
about the System of Care goals, common principles, and new infrastructure.
As with many of our initiatives, we
will be measuring results to track
progress in the System of Care.
Within three to five years, DHHS expects to see increases in school attendance, school performance, and the
percent of youth and young adults living in home settings. Additionally,
they expect to see a decrease in the
average age of first contact with our
behavioral health system and the cost
per youth receiving services.
This is just the beginning. I look
forward to sharing more news about
the System of Care as DHHS implements it in the coming years. If you
have experience or feedback on our
mental health services provided by
the state, I hope that you will contact
my office at 402-471-2244 or
[email protected] Your
stories help provide insights from the
frontline on how services are delivered and inspiration as DHHS continues to improve how they help
Nebraskans build better lives. We
look forward to hearing from you!

Davy Crockett Lunchbox
* “If you have china that has small,
fine cracks in it, put it in a pot with
enough milk to cover (not fat-free milk)
and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. The
milk bonds in the cracks and somehow
seals it right up.” — B.I. in Virginia
* After each use, clean a grill with
aluminum foil. Simply wad up a piece
of foil, and use it as a scrubber to remove
stuck-on foods. If you’re starting out
with a dirty grill, you can still scrub with
foil, and give the foil wad a spritz with
cooking spray to oil the grate before
cooking. (Never spray a lighted grill directly with cooking spray.)
* “Kids counting down until the end
of school? Make a handy paper chain
that doubles as a countdown calendar.
Write the date and the number of school
days left in the year on each link in a
paper chain. Then hang it somewhere
close at hand. Each day, your child can
remove a link to see the days till summer vacation shrink.” — O.P. in Ohio
* “Here’s a tip to find your car in a
large parking lot. Take a photo of your
vehicle with a landmark in the background. This can be an entryway or a
store, or you maybe the sign that shows
the section and floor of the parking
garage.” — A.L. in Texas
* A hanging toiletry bag makes a
great backseat catch-all in the car on
road trips — especially for kids. Look
for one that includes a hook so it can be
hung from the front-seat headrest.
Snacks, small notebooks and a box of
crayons or a portable gaming device and
extra games can be stored securely and
neatly, then gathered up easily to bring
with you to rest stops, diners and motels.
If you’re traveling solo, just hang it in
the passenger seat to keep your essentials organized and at hand!

Q: I was a big fan of Davy Crockett during the 1950s and even had a
coonskin cap. I managed to save my
Davy Crockett lunchbox, and it is in
fairly decent shape. How much could
I sell it for? — Carl, Tulsa, Oklahoma
A: In 1954, Walt Disney produced
the Davy Crockett show and it became an immediate hit. The “Ballad
of Davy Crockett” shot to the top of
the charts, and almost every kid in
the country pestered his parents for a
coonskin cap. Crockett was portrayed by Fess Parker. Two lunchboxes were produced, one for the
American market and the other for
Canada. Your American lunchbox is
valued in the $125-$800 range depending, of course, on condition. The
value was found in the “Official
Guide to Disney Collectibles” by Ted
Hake and published by House of
Q: I have a GAR badge that was
used during an encampment in Indiana in about 1890. What was the
GAR, and is my badge valuable? —
Bill, Shreveport, Louisiana
A: The Grand Army of the Republic was formed immediately following the Civil War “to provide aid and
assistance to the widows and orphans
of the fallen Union dead and to care
for the hospitalized veterans as
needed.” The first encampment was
staged in Indianapolis in November
1866. The organization was disbanded in 1949 when the last comrade of the GAR died. Your badge is
probably valued in the $25-$50
Q: I have a Singer sewing machine
that is the Model 15-30. It is in an
oak cabinet that has been damaged
by dampness. A neighbor has offered
me $600 for it. Should I sell? — Bill,
Indianapolis, Ind.
A: Take the money and run. According to several dealers I consulted, your machine is probably
worth about $300, and perhaps even
less with the cabinet damage you described.
Q: I have a letter that was signed
by Harriet Beecher Stowe in 1885. I
have been offered $1,200 for it, but I
think it might be worth more. — Lillian, Hastings, Neb.
A: A standard letter signed by Harriet Beecher Stowe should sell in the
$200 to $500 range.

Feeding bacteria to livestock
could cut antibiotic use

Cattle rancher Mike John runs a cow-calf operation in Huntsville, Mo., and says he hopes the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade
deal will open up new markets for his beef. (Kristo for Husted/Harvest Public Media)
Midwest farmers advocate
for TPP free trade deal
Harvest Public Media
Apr. 17, 2016
Turn on the TV and you can barely
escape it: presidential candidates on
both sides of the aisle deriding free
trade agreements, like the pending
Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP is
a bum deal that will hurt the U.S.
economy and especially low-wage
workers, according to pols from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton.
But if you venture into the Midwest
and ask a farmer about the TPP,
you’re likely to get a different answer.
“This pending TPP trade negotiation, to me, is hugely important for
agricultural commodities, but specifically for beef,” said Mike John, a cattle rancher in Huntsville, Mo.
John, along with many Midwest
farmers and ranchers are bucking the
political trend to dog the TPP. A coalition of more than 200 hundred agriculture groups recently drafted an
open letter urging congressional leaders to approve the deal, saying the
trade deal will help U.S. farmers stay
competitive in an increasingly
crowded world market.
Free trade agreements remove tariffs on products we import, but also
on food grown here that we export to
other markets. That opens the door to
get more beef, soybeans and rice into
other countries at more competitive
John says the TPP could ultimately
put money in farmers’ pockets by giving them more customers in Asian
countries with a taste for American
“The Asian markets are showing a
huge increase in demand for beef,” he
said. “In particular, the grain-fed U.S.
beef is highly prized in places where
that beef demand is growing.”
The 11 countries along the Pacific
Rim that are parties in the TPP already
take in more than 40 percent of American agricultural exports. That’s worth
a whopping $63 billion, according to
the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The department says the TPP could be
worth an additional $3 billion to U.S.
Many beef producers, like Mike
John, want to see the TPP ratified because it is designed to cut tariffs in
countries such as Japan that historically have been highly protective of
their domestic markets.
“So it’s not necessarily that we
need to get into those markets, we just
need to have fair access so that we can
compete with the other global suppliers of beef,” John said.
Indeed, agricultural policy analyst
Julian Binfield at the University of
Missouri said not sealing the deal
could leave U.S. farmers at a global
“If TPP is not signed, then some
other countries might write their own
agreement,” he said. “Maybe it’s part-

ners in the TPP like Australia and
New Zealand – they’re writing bilateral agreements all the time. Maybe
they get expansion.”
That could actually mean less access overall for U.S. producers.
The other issue casting a long
shadow over TPP negotiations: China.
China is not a part of the trade deal.
But pro-TPP interests say agreements
like this one prevent China from setting global trade rules in its own interest.
“In terms of the U.S.’s overall
strategic position, I think that China is
a massive power that they probably
want to make sure they impose their
own (rules on) or have some say in
their own rules and don’t let China
dictate too much,” Binfield said.
All of this is not to say that all
farmers are campaigning for the TPP.
Despite their current advocacy for the
trade deal, none of the country’s
largest agriculture trade groups call
the TPP an unmitigated victory.
The National Farmers Union actively opposes the deal. The organization of mostly smaller farmers
contends that the agreement would
hurt the broader economy, which
could spell trouble for farmers.
“It’s not that we’re opposed to
trade. It’s not that we don’t want more
agricultural trade,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union. “We absolutely do want
more agricultural trade.”
Johnson said he’s worried that free
trade deals make it more likely that
big companies will move jobs overseas. That can hurt the U.S. market for
food and, in turn, hurt farmers that depend on off-farm income. He’s worried we import more than we export
and feed the ballooning trade deficit.
“It it grows, if it gets worse as a result of this agreement just like it has
as a result of earlier agreements, then
what have we gained? We just haven’t
made a meaningful step forward,” he
President Obama championed the
TPP and set his sights on getting the
deal approved before he leaves office.
For that to happen, Congress will
have to approve it, but neither the
Senate nor the House have set a date
for review.
On a cold windy morning, Kelly
Nissen feeds the cows at the Iowa
State University Beef Nutrition Farm
north of Ames. Far from just tossing
hay, he weighs out specific rations
and carefully delivers them to numbered feed bunks.
“When you’re feeding, you’re always double-checking yourself to
make sure it’s going in the right lot,”
Nissen says.
These cows munch on the common
mix of hay, corn and distiller’s grain,
but they’re often getting a little something new, too. They test different formulas that researchers in the animal
science department at Iowa State develop. Among the goals, across livestock species, is to find ways farmers
can lower their use of antibiotics that
are important for human health.
The antibiotics that clear up infections and keep us healthy are becoming less effective because as they are
used, some squirrelly bacteria develop
resistance. Those pesky ones easily
share their adaption, which can infect
unsuspecting humans and leave doctors struggling to cure so-called drug
resistant bacteria.
Scientists say giving the drugs to
farm animals is part of the problem,
which is why researchers are looking
into new ways to keep livestock
healthy and profitable, especially the
animals that become our pork chops,
chicken tenders and steak.
“There are alternatives to antibiotics in feed,” says Stephanie Hansen,
one of those Iowa State professors.
“And that’s going to be a broad area
of research here in the next 10 to 15

There is $4.7 million available in
grants for food safety education, training and technical assistance projects
that address the needs of owners and
operators of small to mid-sized farms,
beginning farmers, socially-disadvantaged farmers, small processors, small
fresh fruit and vegetable merchant
wholesalers, food hubs, farmers’ markets, and others.
The grants, offered through the
Food Safety Outreach Program and
administered by USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture
(NIFA), are designed to help these
stakeholders comply with new food
safety guidelines established by the
Food and Drug Administration under
the Food Safety Modernization Act
“As growing demand for local food
creates new economic opportunities
for small farms, beginning farmers,
and others, we are committed to ensuring that all types of farmers and

businesses have the tools they need to
be successful,” said Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack. “By supporting
projects that offer tailored training,
education, and technical assistance for
producers and processors of local
food, these grants will benefit producers, the entire food supply chain,
and consumers.”
In fiscal year 2015, NIFA and the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
funded an infrastructure of National
and Regional Centers to extend food
safety education, training, and technical assistance to specific audiences affected by new guidelines established
under the FSMA. In fiscal year 2016,
the Food Safety Outreach Program at
NIFA will build upon this established
national infrastructure by focusing on
the delivery of customized training for
owners and operators of small farms,
food processors, small fruit and vegetable wholesalers, food hubs, farmers’ markets, terminal markets, and
farms that lack access to food safety
training and other educational opportunities.
This year, NIFA will fund three
types of projects to help producers
comply with FSMA. Pilot projects
will support the development and implementation of new and potentially
high-risk, high-impact food safety education and outreach programs in
local communities that address the
needs of small, specialized audiences
from among the various target groups.
Community outreach projects will
focus on the growth and expansion of
already-existing food safety education
and outreach programs that are currently offered in local communities.
Multistate Education and training
projects will support the development
and implementation of multi-county,
state-wide, or multi-state food safety
education and outreach programs
where there are common food safety
concerns, but the states are not necessarily located within the same regions.
A webinar for potential applicants
is 2:30-3:30 p.m. EST April 19. Applications are due June 2. See the request for applications on the NIFA
website for more information.

“We’ve seen improvements in
weight gains, feed conversion, food
intake in young pigs,” says Frank.
“But more interestingly, we’ve seen
that by improving general health and
performance, that those pigs are requiring fewer injectable treatments.”
That’s what they’re looking for:
less need to treat with antibiotics.
“As antibiotics become more limited on their use, one, we’re going to
have to make changes in how we raise
animals, perhaps develop more vaccines, change our stocking densities,
nutrition programs,” Frank says. “But
part of that transition to new production styles is looking at these products
that can improve health.”
Poultry researcher Alejandro Penaloza at Oklahoma State University
has found a helpful bacteria that can
survive in poultry feed. He says some
large chicken producers are interested
in it because it helps the birds gain
weight with less feed, a benefit they
used to get from antibiotics. Penaloza
says his probiotic could be a good replacement.
“We cannot say that probiotics is
the silver bullet to completely eliminate antibiotics,” Penaloza says. ”But
I am sure that they can help a lot.”
Just like many people, animals
might be even healthier with some
changes to their diets. And as human
nutrition explores new possibilities,
the animal researchers will be paying
attention. There’s plenty of overlap.
“There are essential oils. There are
enzymes that could be supplemented,” Hansen says. “There could
be a possibility that trace minerals and
vitamins could play positive roles.”
Moving beyond antibiotics on the
farm will be a gradual process, but it’s
getting a little inspiration from our
diet trends.

Ever read the ingredients on a cup
of creamy Chobani? A good yogurt
will contain several live bacteria,
which can help you stay healthy by

Yoplait. Some researchers, though,
think a bacterium commonly found in
your lunchbox, Lactobacillus acidophilus, may be help keep animals
healthy and lead to less dependence
on drugs important for human health.
“Acidophilus would have the same
impact in a production livestock animal as it would in humans,” Hansen
says. “Maybe it’s able to outcompete
a bad bacteria for attachment in the
gastrointestinal tract in the intestine,
so that would be a good thing.”
In essence, beneficial bacteria can
crowd out the bad ones, preventing
them from making you, or a cow, sick.
If they protect the animals from infection, farmers will need fewer antibiotics. The U.S. Department of
Agriculture’s data suggest nearly half
of chickens and about 40 percent of
pigs may get antibiotics when they’re
not even sick, though overall use has
declined in recent years.
The more farmers reduce antibiotic
use on the farm, the less likely bacteria are to adapt and become resistant
to our medicines. It’s a short path
from use in the barn to preserving effectiveness in the hospital. Last year,
the Obama Administration announced
a plan aimed at cutting down reliance

With veterinarians and livestock
producers both now looking for other
ways to bring healthy animals to market size, nutrition companies are paying attention. Iowa-based Diamond V
has developed a pig feed supplement
made from Lactobacillus acidophilus.
Jason Frank says they got the idea
from work on human nutrition.

DEAR DR. ROACH: A year ago,
my internist prescribed Evista for
mild osteopenia, but my gynecologist
said she would not have put me on
medication yet. Two of my friends
also have osteopenia, but they have
not been prescribed medication. I
stopped taking Evista last month, because of my fear of developing blood
clots. What is your view on this? —
ANSWER: Osteopenia simply
means “too little bone,” and it is a risk
factor for developing osteoporosis.
Most experts would treat osteopenia
by ensuring that you are getting adequate calcium and vitamin D, and seeing that there are no other causes for
your osteopenia, such as low thyroid
level or medications that can lower
bone density, such as cortisone. Although there may be reasons to treat
osteopenia before osteoporosis develops, medicines like raloxifene
(Evista) are reserved for the more serious condition of bone loss, osteoporosis. Raloxifine does decrease the
risk of fractures.
Raloxifene has risks: It increases
the risk of blood clots by about 1 person per thousand over five years.
However, it decreases the risk of
breast cancer. Thus, raloxifene is a
poor choice for someone with an increased risk of clots, but a very reasonable choice for women who need
treatment for osteoporosis and also
have an increased risk for breast cancer.
The Plainview Pirate junior high
track team hosted a quadrangular with
Elgin Public/Pope John, Bloomfield
and Elkhorn Valley on the local track
and field on April 4, taking secondplace in both the boys and girls contests.
The Lady Pirates took secondplace with a team score of 49.33
points trailing only Elkhorn Valley,
and the Pirate boys did the same with
36 points, tying for second with Elgin
Public/Pope John.
