Publicist: ‘Moon River’ Singer Andy Williams Dies

News

September 26th, 2012 by admin

BRANSON, Mo. (AP) – Emmy-winning TV host and “Moon River” crooner and Wall Lake, IA Iowa native Andy Williams has died at the age of 84.

Williams’ publicist, Paul Shefrin, said Wednesday that the silky-voiced singer died Tuesday night at his home in Branson, Mo., following a year-long battle with bladder cancer.

Williams said in November 2011 that he was diagnosed with bladder cancer but planned to continue performing at the namesake theater he built in Branson in 1992.

The clean-cut Iowa native began singing with his brothers as a child, and his easy style and mellow voice led President Ronald Reagan to call Williams “a national treasure.” Though his version of “Moon River” made him world famous, it was among his many hits, including “Butterfly” and “Can’t Get Used to Losing You.”

Nebraskan Sentenced for Vandalism at Iowa Memorial

News

September 26th, 2012 by admin

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – An 18-year-old Nebraskan has been given two years of probation after pleading guilty to vandalizing Sioux City’s Flight 232 crash memorial.

Felipe Sebastian, of South Sioux City, was convicted of criminal mischief. Judge Jeffrey Poulson deferred judgment, so if Sebastian successfully completes probation, the case will be cleared from his record.

Sebastian also was ordered to pay a $3,000 civil penalty, more than $1,500 in restitution and write an apology to the city of Sioux City.

Sebastian’s co-defendant, Scott Coleson, of Lehigh, Iowa, is scheduled for a plea hearing on Oct. 9.

Sebastian admitted damaging one of the pink quartzite boulders leading to the memorial on June 20. The memorial honors the 112 people who died in the July 1989 crash of United Airlines Flight 232 at Sioux Gateway Airport.

Mills Co Approves Million Ton Dirt Extraction

News

September 26th, 2012 by admin

Some residents in Mills County are unhappy about a vote by the Mills County Zoning Board of Adjustments that allows a resident to extract one million cubic tons of dirt from his property.

The Daily Nonpareil reports the board voted 4-1 to allow Cory Leick to remove dirt from his farm near Glenwood.  Leick had asked the board for a special use permit that would allow him to extract dirt which would make part of his property open to farming.  The extraction would create an estimated 60,000-70,000 semi-truck loads of dirt over 1-3 years.

The Daily Nonpareil reports about 50 people attended the public meeting and voiced concerns about noise, the effect on property values, and increased traffic.  The contractor for the project will create a separate road to alleviate traffic and be responsible for the cleaning of roads in the construction area.

Chances For Deer/Vehicle Collisions Rise

News

September 26th, 2012 by admin

Iowa motorists can expect to see more deer darting across roadways in the coming weeks. Iowa Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist Tom Litchfield says the early harvest this year has deer on the move. They tend to be especially active around sunrise and sunset near creeks and wooded areas.

“I always tell motorists to be especially vigilant as they’re nearing low spots in the landscape,” Litchfield said. The DNR has taken steps to reduce Iowa’s deer population over the last decade after a peak road kill total of 15,361 was recorded in 2004. Last year, the road kill total dropped to 10,626 deer.

“The last four years, the (road kill) rates compare well to the mid 1980s through the early 90s. There’s been quite a difference from what we had between 2002 and 2006,” Litchfield said. The potential for deer/vehicle collisions in Iowa could decline more in the years to come. Litchfield notes hunters killed just over 121,000 deer in Iowa in 2011.

“I expect this year our reported harvest should drop six-to-seven percent just due to the decline in the deer herd,” Litchfield said. Deer population goals set by the DNR have been reached in roughly two-thirds of Iowa’s counties, according to Litchfield. The chances for deer/vehicle collisions will rise a bit more in late October and early November as the “rut” or breeding season begins.

FSA Prepares to Issue CRP and DCP Payments

News

September 26th, 2012 by admin

Iowa Farm Service Agency State Executive Director John R. Whitaker announced that preparations are being made to issue Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and Direct and Counter Cyclical Program (DCP) payments.   The annual rental payments for CRP and the direct payments for DCP, are generally made in October and will begin after FSA receives the authorization to issue payments.

“Payments are considered timely when they are issued within 30 days of the authorized date,” said Whitaker. “Many people are not aware of the amount of work that goes into ensuring the payment process goes smoothly.  Our offices know in years such as this, these funds support the agricultural economy and responsible stewardship of America’s production acreage.”

Many variables will go into this year’s payment process.  “Producers who were part of the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) review may need to file these and others forms before payments can be issued,” added Whitaker.   While the AGI review is one example of how payments are affected, producers who signed up for emergency haying and grazing will see their annual payment reduced by the acreage that was hayed or grazed, if this was not prepaid.

Whitaker added that, producers who are affected by office consolidations should not see payments delayed due to this reason alone. “Our agency has taken steps to ensure that these payments will be generated at the same time that the rest of the state’s payments are issued.”

Iowa producers hold over 106,000 CRP contracts and approximately 154,000 DCP contacts in the state.
