The Greene County Medical Center unveiled its new logo, color scheme and message to its staff on Friday, February 10.

The concept, color, scheme and message were the result of several intake sessions last fall with staff members, community members, and a team of professionals from ME&V Healthcare Marketing of Cedar Falls.

Community relations director Carla Offenburger said "This process was a long and thoughtful one. We wanted to capture the essence of the medical center in a refreshing and holistic way. We think we've done that with this new image."

The design consists of a leaf encircling the medical center name and message. The flowing lines of the leaf surrounding the text represent the comprehensive care provided to patients. The leaf serves as a symbol of life, growth, endurance and happiness. It also shares elements of a heart, a symbol of compassion.

The green, light green and blue colors leave a nurturing, healing and revitalizing effect on the viewer.

The message "Always Here. Always Caring." is the promise the medical center makes to the public. Administrator Karen Bossard said "It reminds the public in a bold way that we are always available to meet their needs, and we care about their wellbeing. This is who we are and who we promise to be." - The Bee Read more »

The Iowa Newspaper Association presented Chuck Offenburger with its Distinguished Service Award (DSA) at the association's annual convention Friday, February 3, in Des Moines.

Offenburger was one of three recipients of the award this year.

Brian Cooper, editor of the Dubuque Telegraph-Herald, presented the DSA awards. He noted Offenburger's decades long career as an Iowa journalist, starting with his writings for his hometown Shenandoah newspaper as a high school student and continuing through his "Iowa Boy" column in the Des Moines Register. Today Offenburger has thousands of readers of his internet publication at www.offenburger.com. He has authored several books on Iowa and Iowans.

"It may be said he has many friends, maybe hundreds of thousands of friends, most of whom have never met him face-to-face," Cooper said. "However, these Iowans consider him as friend because they got to 'know' him as he introduced them to countless Iowans through his writing. But when he does meet folks in person, each and every one comes away with the feeling they had done him a grand favor by making his acquaintance."

Cooper also cited Offenburger's community service, his activity in church and politics, and his devotion to trails, historical sites and events, and the RAGBRAI annual bike ride.

"He has been a role model for many, teaching them his skills in interviewing, writing and serving their communities and the state," Cooper said. "While his style might be considered offbeat, our recipient always finds the humanity that makes a story compelling. As a result, he has an uncanny knack for getting people to talk to him. Iowans instinctively trust him. They know he is one of them.

"The bottom line is that he loves people and he respects and loves our state and is one of the greatest ambassadors for Iowa newspapers." -Jefferson Herald Read more »

Young readers in Paton will soon have dozens of new book adventures to choose from thanks to a donation from the Monsanto Fund.

The Paton public library received the $2,500 through "America's Farmers Grow Communities," a program where winning farmers designate a local nonprofit organization to benefit from the donations.Lora Smalley of Paton has been selected as a winner in the program and designated the $2,500 to the Paton public library.

"This donation is greatly appreciated," said Joleen Allen, library director. "The library has a summer reading program that has been very successful, so part of the money will support that program. The youth collection is very outdated, so $2,000 will go to new books, chapter books and accelerated reader books for the kids' school program."

Grow Communities was created to benefit the nonprofit community groups such as local public libraries that are important to America's farmers. For Smalley, the opportunity to help grow her community became a reality when she was selected as the Greene County winner during the second annual program. Smalley decided on the library to support the summer reading program.

"My granddaughter went to every week of the summer reading program and she loved it," Smalley said. "So, I made the donation for her, because I know libraries are always in need of money, especially here where they are working on expanding and doing so many great things."

On Friday, February 10, Smalley got the chance to present the $2,500 donation.

In 1,245 eligible counties, farmers could win $2,500 for their favorite nonprofit. The Monsanto Fund expects to invest more than $3.1 million in local rural communities this year alone. Through Grow Communities more than $742,000 has been donated to nonprofits in Iowa.

Three directors were elected at Monday's annual meeting of the Guthrie Center Area Development Corporation at the Guthrie Activity Center.

President Dennis Flanery was re-elected to a three-year term. Joining the board were Jennifer POlicky and Eric Reinhart. They replace Dennis Kunkle and Laura Imerman.

Last month the building was leased to Bob & Jo's RV Center on a monthly basis. To improve cash flow, GCADC will solicit memberships and individuals, something it has not done for many years. The group also asked for assistance from the city and municipal utilities.

Community updates were given by superintendent of schools Steve Smith and mayor Dennis Kunkle. Smith told about the school's 1:1 computer initiative for grades 7-12 and an upcoming feasibility study with the Department of Education. Kunkle told of the city acquisitions including the Alliant Energy facility on First Street and the building at 301 State which will be torn down. He also spoke about the sidewalk and street lighting project and downtown revitalization.

Sue Cosner of Iowa Area Development Group facilitated a strategic planning session for those attending. A resident of Lake Panorama, she is a former Panora City Clerk.

During the session, goals for the next one to three years were identified and prioritized. They included community promotions, working to enhance the business environment and residential development.

Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO) announced the signing of a long-term power purchase agreement that commits the state's largest cooperative energy provider to buy the entire output from two new wind farms being constructed near the towns of Hawkeye and Grand Junction. The projects will produce a combined 86 megawatts of electricity, which will double the amount of wind energy in CIPCO's generation portfolio when the two wind farms become operational in the fall of 2012.

"Over 95 percent of CIPCO's electricity in generated in Iowa and with the commitments of the Rippey and Hawkeye facilities, CIPCO's carbon-free and emissions-free resources will be over 50 percent by 4th quarter 2012," stated Dennis Murdock, CEO and Executive Vice President of CIPCO. "The addition of these two wind farms further enhances our commitment to local energy production and environmental stewardship."

The 36 megawatt Hawkeye Wind Farm and 50 megawatt Ripper Wind Farm are being developed by RPM Access LLC (RPMA), an independent wind developer in Iowa. RPMA also developed the Elk Wind Farm in Delaware County, which became operational earlier this year and is supplying power to CIPCO as well. Both new wind projects will use Nordex 2.5 megawatt turbines on 328 foot towers, the highest wind turbines in Iowa. On site road and substation construction activities at Hawkeye and Rippey have already begun.

"We are please to further contribute towards new economic development that provides job opportunities to rural communities in Iowa," added Murdock.

Project Learning tree (PLT), the environmental education program of the American Forest Foundation, awarded a $1,000 GreenWorks ! grant to Guthrie Center elementary school to restore a 6-acre outdoor classroom, complete trails, and add features to enhance the curriculum.

With the grant, elementary students will work together with Guthrie Center Schools' high school agriculture and environmental science classes to determine the native Iowa species to plant, how to organize the planting effort, and how to provide follow-up care.

Students will utilize local resource professionals from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Guthrie County Conservation Board, and Guthrie County Master Gardeners. Other community partners include the Guthrie Center Lions Club, and local businesses and youth groups.

"The outdoor classroom has long been a sense of community pride, but it has become overgrown with invasive bush honeysuckle, poison ivy, and other species," said kindergarten teacher Brooke Boals. "Plantings will provide learning resources to make the site more relevant to our curriculum, especially with science classes, Iowa history, and horticulture."

Students will learn through planning and implementing specific, grade-appropriate activities and projects. Outdoor classroom activities aligned with the school district curriculum, the Iowa Core, and the Iowa Department of Education's five Characteristics of Effective Instruction, will be embedded into the design of each study unit.

This grant was one of 26 grants awarded to schools and youth organizations in 19 states, out of more than 100 applications received from across the country. -Guthrie Center Times Read more »

Jefferson Awarded Main Street Iowa Designation!
February 7, 2012
Jefferson Selected as Main Street Iowa Community
One of three new communities announced today

February 7, 2012 (Des Moines, IA) - Governor Terry Branstad today announced that Jefferson was one of three Iowa communities selected to join the Main Street Iowa program, along with Chariton and Lansing. The announcement was made during a special ceremony held at the Iowa State Capitol.

“Iowa’s historic main streets are the heart and soul of our communities,” said Governor Branstad. “We will continue to do whatever we can to keep Iowa’s historic commercial districts strong and vibrant for business owners, workers, residents and visitors. I am pleased to welcome each of these communities into the Main Street family, and wish them much success in the future.”

For more than 25 years, the Main Street Iowa program and its communities have been looked upon as the “best of the best” in a national effort to revitalize main streets across the country. The addition of these new communities brings the number of participating Main Street communities in Iowa to 48.

“In their applications and presentations, the selected communities demonstrated strong partnerships, a high level of volunteerism, and a commitment to the revitalization of their main street districts. We are confident that these three cities will thrive and grow for many years to come,” said Debi Durham, director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

Becoming a designated Main Street Iowa community is no easy task. Community representatives must attend rigorous training sessions before even being eligible to apply. They must demonstrate support from local organizations, businesses, and lawmakers; funding and in-kind support must be secured and documented; strategic plans outlining short- and long-term goals must be in place; and city resolutions and historic preservation ordinances must be passed and signed. Most importantly, community officials, business owners, and volunteers must agree to work together with the common goals of preserving Iowa’s historic buildings and unique commercial business districts, and improving the local economy by adopting and following the Main Street Four Point Approach® to historic commercial district revitalization.

While it may be challenging to become a Main Street community, designated communities reap many benefits. During the first three years of the program, each community receives 40 days of on-site training and technical assistance from Main Street Iowa, National Main Street Center staff and private consultants, as well as 30 days of training for volunteers and local staff, resulting in a state investment of $100,000. Mature Main Street communities each receive continuing technical assistance and training valued at $10,000 annually.

Over the years, by working together with the state, Main Street Iowa communities have realized the benefits of more than two million hours of volunteer time committed to improving their main street districts, a significantly increased job and business base, and over a billion dollars in private investment to purchase, construct and rehabilitate main street property.

Hometown Memories Publishing Company intends to save a big slice of local history before it's lost forever.

Karen Garvey, Senior Editor at Hometown Memories Publishing, is asking local old-timers to share their memories for a living history book. She invites anyone over age 60 with yarns about the "good old days" in Southwest Iowa to write them down and mail them to her for possible publication in the book. The hardcover coffee table book will contain tales of bygone years from people who actually lived them.

To encourage participation, Garvey is offering a $250 award for the most appealing story. There will also be three $100 runner-up awards.

"I'm not looking for genealogy," says Garvey. "What we want to save are true stories about things that once were commonplace but are virtually unknown to today's generation. The contributor's descendants will love them for it. Life today is not what it used to be," continues Garvey.

For example, any old-timer could tell an interesting tale about things like wringer washing machines, downtown cowboy movies on Saturday, radio drama programs, feed sack dresses or old fashioned outhouses.

Especially wanted for the book are stories that involve humor, odd, unusual, frightening or mysterious events, romance stories ("How I Met My Spouse"), local myths and legends and ghost tales. The deadline for story submission is April 30.

Garvey requests that anyone interested in submitting material for the book phone her toll-free at 877-491-8802 for instructions or visit the website at www.hometownmemoriesonline.com. -The News Gazette Read more »
