Tuesday morning the children at the Gowrie Public Library story hour were visited by volunteers from the Southwest Webster Ambulance crew. Gowrie, Iowa residents urged to support ethonal, Renewalable Fuels program Written comments needed by July 29. . . It hasn’t always been easy for the average American farmer. Farmers have had to work tirelessly to stay afloat amid fluctuating crop demand and a tumultuous environmental and political climate. Despite the chaos, hope springs from domestic biofuel production, which has bolstered rural America while simultaneously decreasing our dependency on foreign oil. However, on May 29 the Obama administration made a ruling on Renewable Volume Obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) that undermines these efforts. In its announcement, the Environmental Protection Agency stated that “real-world limitations” have prevented the U.S. from reaching its delineated goals for 2014-2016. While the EPA is correct in recognizing the intent of Congress to continue expanding growth in biofuels, the established targets greatly fall short of rural America’s ability to produce low-cost, clean-burning ethanol, and this must be changed. Gowrie-Dayton area people are urged to write personal comments in support of agriculture and ethonal. Tell the EPA not to reduce the Renewable Fuel Standard advises POET. Mail comments to POET, 1562 320th St., Gowrie, IA, 5053 by July 15. Rural America has shown incredible advancements in recent years, utilizing innovative, efficient technologies to increase yield and output. Nationally, the RFS has supported 825,000 jobs, many of these in agriculture, while the ethanol industry added 44 billion dollars to the U.S. GDP in 2013. In Iowa alone, the ethanol industry generates $19.3 billion of total economic output annually and supports over 73,000 jobs. As ethanol grew over the last decade, so did prosperity in rural America. As ethanol production has plateaued the last couple years, farm income and land value have plateaued or dropped. There’s no doubt that the fates of these industries are tied together. By not allowing U.S. farmers to reach their potential for renewable fuel production, we are missing an enormous opportunity for continued prosperity. It seems the government has lost sight of the initial purpose of the RFS, which was designed in 2007 to keep gas prices low, to spur domestic jobs and investment, and to set a path for a more sustainable future. The government knew that the only way to put America’s future in our own hands was to promote more fuel choices at the pump. Thankfully, some key players in Washington haven’t forgotten their commitment to rural America. In response to the ruling, United States Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced that the USDA will provide funding for flex pump infrastructure to increase access to domestic biofuel at the pump. While increased access is welcome, this program is needed because oil companies have refused to make the investments necessary to meet the law. Why are oil companies exempt from making the same investments farmers did? It’s essential that local farmers and community members follow Vilsack’s lead and speak out to make biofuels a priority. The EPA has opened a 60-day comment period that allows anyone to express their opinion on the ruling before July 27. Now is the time to make your voices heard and stop the federal government from putting the oil industry’s agenda ahead of American farmers. Why? Because America has long been dependent on foreign oil, and though oil prices have dipped, it’s imperative to remember the volatility of the market and stay proactive in our ability to be autonomous. To preserve the advances made in agriculture over the last eight years, the EPA needs to recommit to its initial goals and continue to allow a strong market for first and second-generation renewable fuels, until 2022 and beyond.

This time around, I’m not sharing some grand adventure story, or sharing my thoughts on what’s happening in our wonderful piece of the world. Instead, I want to bring up an issue that’s been bugging me over the past few weeks. I value transparency. In this day and age, I have to be transparent when it comes to things. This idea is certainly not new, as honesty is always the best policy for everyone and anyone in between. I appreciate how honest everyone has with me over the past few weeks, and like I tell everyone who comes up to me, I appreciate both positive and negative feedback. For that, I cannot thank my readers enough. Ladies and gentlemen, you are awesome. In a past edition of the Dayton Review, I caught quite a few typos and errors in my story detailing the Lehigh jail cell story. This was also done throughout other stories as well. On the jail cell, I thoroughly enjoyed writing the story, and had a blast with Doug Linn and Roger Smith. Those two are all around classy guys. From providing the info on how they found the cell and restored it, it was worth telling the tale. And in a prior Tyler’s Take…No, our tent did not “toot.” It flooded. However, I will say that it drew a few chuckles from me while I read the paper the other day. It’s totally cool if you chuckled too. You know what, it’s totally cool if you laughed out loud. It’s no skin off of my nose. But let’s get back to those typos and errors. Lately, whenever I send it in my material, we’ve encountered quite a few errors. Between the emails and documents that are provided and moved around, something gets lost in the translation. It’s nothing that my good friends working with me at the Dayton Review and Gowrie News are responsible for. Simply put, I could legitimately blame a bug in the system. But I don’t want to blame some computer glitch for jarring you from reading all about the cool stories that we write or get sent in from our wonderful contributors. Like any computer glitch or error or what have you, it can be amended and fixed. Our promise to you is to rectify that problem, in any which way possible. If we have to try completely different things to make sure that what I typed on my computer screen (which is typed on a word processor and has no errors whatsoever, I’m more than happy to show you) goes over well to the pages of the paper, we’ll give it a shot. That is me being upfront and honest with you. Much like George Lucas’ thoughts on constantly adding more stuff to Star Wars, the Dayton Review and the Gowrie News are always going to be that work in progress. Our promise is to give everything our best shot and keep finding ways to get better. Frankly, that’s why I’m here and that’s why my teammates are here. We want the Dayton Review-Gowrie News to be better and we want the community to be better. Why? Because you all deserve nothing but the best. Nothing less.

A diagnosis of Type II diabetes had previously been controlled through diet and exercise, but the disease intensified, causing her to begin taking medicine. She experienced an upset stomach but didn’t become overly concerned. Then her triglyceride (a type of fat found in the blood which convert to energy between meals) levels went haywire, Carol was prescribed another medication to control them. Additionally, she was taking potassium to rectify a deficiency in her system. The three medications interacted and caused Carol to have intense stomach pain. She contacted registered pharmacist Jane Moeller at Community Pharmacy and asked her to evaluate her medications. Community Pharmacy offers a new service to patients called Medication Therapy Management (MTM). Carol met with Jane and Megan Snyder, PharmD.

Carol’s stomach pain disappeared. “The medical providers know your health issues. The pharmacists know the drugs. They all have to work together to make a person healthy,” says Laidler. Jane Moeller attributes the changes in the services pharmacies offers to the changing attitudes of Americans. “We are showing more interest in maintaining our health. In a national survey, 80% of responses indicated Americans expect to be more active in managing their health than ever before. At Community Pharmacy we are responding to that expectation and providing the MTM program.” The MTM program the patient’s healthcare team which includes the patient, their medical provider and the pharmacist. “It’s all about the patient and healthy outcomes. After analyzing the patient’s medical profile and medications used to control chronic conditions, we send our suggestions for any changes in medications to the patient’s medical provider. Together, the team decides on the best option,” explains Moeller. “So begins a new era in pharmacy - helping patients to better utilize their medications and to enjoy a healthier life.” FUELING FREEDOM America was founded on freedom, independence and the ability for each person to have a choice.
