Darrel Mischke retires, new


owner Phillip DeCastro takes over
By Cassidy Riley

For more than 100 years the barbershop
at 1122 Market Street has been a staple in the
Gowrie communityand as one barber prepares to trim ties with the shop, another readies
to carry on the barbering tradition.

This week Darrel Mischke, who has
owned Darrels Barbershop just shy of 45 years,
will officially sell his shop to Phillip DeCastro,
son-in-law to local Dean Vinchattle.

For 102 years there have been three
people in this shop barbering, which says a lot
about this profession in a day and age when
people never stay in the same job longer than
ten years, Mischke said.

DeCastro will be the fourth owner of the
shop. Despite all the years the humble location
on Market has seen, it has never lost its oldfashioned barbershop feel. Mischke said this is
especially notable considering how many small
towns no longer have barbershops.

Gowrie should be very fortunate to
have a young barber willing to come to this
town to continue this profession, he said. I
hope people support it.

On Mischkes first day in Gowrie in
1969 it was his birthday. Barely 24-years-old,
he was new to the area but he said it didnt take
long to feel at home.

Because of the business I think it makes
it easier because of the fact that these people are
coming in to spend money and do business with
you, he said. I think its a real ego boost. Its a
real positive stroke that makes you feel like you
belong.

Over the years he has had several loyal
customers including Jeff Peterson, owner of
Jamboree Foods on Market Street.

I think its wonderful that he finally gets to retire, he said. I think everybody
should have that chance.

Peterson said since Mischke came to
town only one time has someone else cut his
hair.

That was on a cruise and my wife talked me into having someone else cut it, he said.

Mischke said the best part about having
loyal customers is not only the support for his
business but the friendships hes been able to
build.

You can have people drop in to talk and
talk about hunting and fishing and talk about
things that I really enjoy, he said. Thats one
of the things I think Im going to miss the most.

In addition to being the town barber Mischke has made a name for himself in
Gowrie for his community involvement. He
previously served on the Gowrie City Council
and currently serves on the Gowrie Development Commission. He has also been involved
in Gowrie Trees Forever and been known to
play an integral role in bringing new businesses
to town such as Gowrie Macke.

I think my public service to the community will probably stay the same [after I
retire], he said. Im going to have to have
something to do and its a big thing to me that
this community thrives.


Alan Wooters, longtime friend and customer of Mischkes said despite not being a native to the areas he has worked tirelessly to
grow the community.

I think one thing that stands out in my
friendship with him is his really deeply rooted
love for Gowrie, he said.

DeCastro is in town this week for his
first-ever Gowrie Fourth of July celebration.
He will take over the shop sometime during the
week of July 8. He has lived in Los Angeles
since 2006. Having studied business adminisDarrel's Retirement continued on page 3...

Warriors take down Newell-Fonda
July 2, 2014


On Friday the Warriors faced Panorama
at Warrior Field. In a season full of unusual story
lines in the bottom of the 3rd Katie Kehoe drove
a 3 run bomb way out of the Park in deep center
to take a brief 3-0 lead. As she rounded 1B she
touched the orange half of the bag rather than
the white and upon appeal was ruled the 3rd out
of the inning canceling all 3 runs. (It turns out it
was the wrong call.) The disappointment in the
dugout was brief though when in the bottom of
4 Allie Berg opened with a walk followed by
an off the wall single by Natalie Lambert and
another single by Anna Heatherington to load
the bases. Freshman Jaiden Ackerson stepped
up to the plate fresh off the season long injury
list. It was quite the welcome back as she went
yard big time into the top of the evergreens for
a Grand Slam igniting the crowd once again to
take a 4-0 lead.

In the bottom of the 5th Clara Pearson
led off with a solo shot to put 1 more on the
Board. Kehoe blew a single up the middle
and Lambert hit a line shot to left the fielder
made an outstanding defensive play on. Anna
Heatherington had her back though and laced
a 2-bagger to right-center scoring Kehoe to up
the score to 6-0. Ackerson hit a laser off the
3rd baseman but was stranded on base to end
an impressive 3 inning display of power that
left the opponent stunned and ready to submit.
Meanwhile Lambert threw a 1-hit gem backed
up by some incredible defensive plays from her
friends. Karlee Walker, Erica Rittgers, Pearson,
Heatherington, and Ackerson all had 2 hits and
a team total of 12. It was a nice win and great
way to end the week.

Next up was a big Conference Showdown at Home against the defending TLC
Champion Newell-Fonda Mustangs. Leading
off for the Mustangs was Renee Maneman who
is one of the toughest outs there is. She laid
down a bunt and beat it out, promptly stealing
2B & 3B before crossing the plate on a sac bunt
to go up 1-0. It looked to be a tough night ahead
keeping Maneman from tearing us up with her
speed. The Warriors came in and loaded the
bases with 1 out before a great defensive play
took us out of the inning without plating a run.
It remained 0-1 with good pitching and defense
on both sides until the bottom of the 4th when
Allie Berg stepped up to the plate with 2 outs.
She got all of the first pitch and sent it to the top
of the evergreens for an impressive solo blast to
even the score at 1-all and wake up the Warrior
faithful. In the top of 5 NF came right back
at us with back to back singles to lead off the

inning before Erica Rittgers snagged a fly ball


to record 1 out bringing up Maneman of course
with runners on 1st and 2nd. She drove a double to left-center scoring 1 with runners on 2nd
and 3rd and 1 down. Lambert and the defense
set down the number 2 and 3 hitters in succession to get out of the jam. The Warriors went
down in order in the bottom trailing 1-2. In the
top of 6 the Warriors returned the favor. Then
in the bottom half Rittgers and Pearson singled
bringing up Kehoe with 1 down.

As she has all season long, Katie delivered big time with a double up the middle scoring both to take a 3-2 lead going into the top
of the 7th with their 7, 8, and 9 hitters due up
and the dreaded Maneman to follow. Lambert
struck out Wells who already had 2 of NFs 5 total hits and popped up the next batter to Kehoe
in left for out number 2. The number 9 hitter
took the count to 3 balls and 2 strikes before
Lambert polished her off with her 7th big K of
the night to end an intense and exciting Game.
This was a signature win for the Warriors as
they played with poise all night long.

The following night Laurens-Marathon
came calling for another Conference Game. After a big emotional win a concern is always dropping one you shouldnt the next night. While
LM may not have a great record they do have a
great Senior Pitcher so we knew it wouldnt be
a gimme. She was throwing pretty well but so
was Nat. It turned out to be a tight contest with
the Warriors prevailing 2-1. Heatherington had
the hot bat going a perfect 3-3 driving in both
runs. We recorded 7 hits and hit the ball hard
with several right-at-ems mixed in which kept it
tighter than it might have been. The defense remains outstanding with zero errors on the night
and Lambert continues to shine on the mound
giving up 1 hit, 1 walk, and striking out 9 batters. They went down in order every inning but
the 4th.

After the challenging start we had to our
season it is great to see us coming together and
playing well as we now have everyone back.
We are 13-7 overall and 6-0 in the Conference
with some great victories along the way. With 4
Conference Games remaining we look to finish
pretty well. We have a huge Game coming up at
East Sac who is ranked number 10 in the State
in Class 3A. Just like we figured the TLC is
the best it has ever been this year with 3 Teams
that are or have been ranked in their respective
Classes and nearly any Team can take you down
if you dont bring youre A Game. Our talent
level matches up with the best of them.

Gowrie Independence Day celebration


over a 100 year tradition
By Cassidy Riley

Beginning in the 1800s, the Gowrie Independence Day celebration is nearly as old as
the town itself. For more than 100 years Gowrie
has been famous for its annual parade, carnival,
and chicken dinner, and each year when the calendar reads July 4 the population of Gowrie expands to ten to fifteen times its usual size.

But how does all of this happen? How
does the city prepare each year to meet the lofty
expectations that attract masses of spectators
and patrons? Ask just about anyone involved
in the planning process and they will likely say
Gowrie has been hosting such a large celebration for so long all the pieces fall into place on
their ownas if magic doesnt hide inside childrens storybooks but in Gowrie.

The truth is, the hard work and determination of volunteers and organizations within
the city create the memorable festivities every
year.
The Parade

The Fourth of July is a day to appreciate
the freedoms afforded to all Americans as a part
of this sovereign nation. The American Legion
Peterson Post 431 in Gowrie brings out the patriotic vein in all citizens and visitors every year
with their display of five red, white, and blue
parade floats lined with the casket flags of veterans.

Creating these floats begins two weeks
before the morning of the parade. Fifteen to 20
men meet at the legion hall at 9 a.m. on June 21
to unfold casket flags and attach them to polls.
A week later the trailers are built.

When we put the flags together, assemble the trailers, disassemble the trailers, take the
flags off the poles, fold the flags back into the
triangles and put them back in the flag case at
our legion hall its 105 to 125 hours, said Jim
Peterson, service coordinator for Peterson Post
431.

Gayle Redman, Gowrie City Councilperson and Gowrie Development Commission
member, is responsible for organizing the parade and she said her planning process begins
shortly after New Years Eve.

People start calling me in January and I
would say the first people who start calling me
are the class reunions, she said.

Primarily people call to make sure
they can participate in the parade. The Gowrie
Fourth of July parade has no pre-registration
requirement but many people are unaware of
this so between January and July 4 she spends
a lot of time informing people if they want to
participate they need only to arrive downtown.
The morning of the parade her job is primarily
organization.

We run all the floats on one street, and
all the fire trucks on one street, and all the tractors and fire trucks on another street, and we
line up all the dignitaries, she said.

She recruits a friend or relative to direct

the parade at the intersection of Market and


Church Streetspointing floats, tractors, fire
trucks, and convertibles seating dignitaries
such as the mayor to move down the parade
route.

And it really is exciting down there on
Fourth of July morning, she said. Youd think
that lining up for the parade two hours early is
boring but its not.

The American Legion

The American Legion begins preparations for the esteemed holiday in December
by ordering raffle tickets. This years raffle is
worth up to $300. There will also be $200 and
$100 prizes.

Our raffle is our biggest moneymaker
to help make money to pay for the Fourth of
July, Peterson said.

Raffle profits and other funds raised
around the year are donated to community projects such as an annual scholarship for a high
school senior.

You have to make money to have to
give away, Peterson said.

Next on the legions to-do list is signing
a contract with McDermott Family Shows for
the carnival that operates throughout the July 4
week. While preparing other events the legion
hosts such as a pork loin dinner on July 2, the
group also sorts all the cans and bottles collected by the Gowrie Fire Department to pay for
fireworks.

That has been the best way to fund our
fireworks because its brought in a lot of money, Peterson said. If [people] want to get rid
of their cans, well theyve got a part in the fireworks, [and] fireworks arent cheap and neither
is the insurance.

Redman said with all they do, the legion
is the driving force on Independence Day to
remind residents of Gowrie the reasons to celebrate.

First and foremost its a patriotic celebration and the military is a big part of our
countrys patriotism, she said.

This is the first segment in a mini-series showcasing all the work that creates the
Fourth of July celebration in Gowrie. Look in
the coming weeks to learn about work done by
other local organizations.

THE GOWRIE NEWS

Grant Anderson arrives in Gowrie by bike


By Cassidy Riley

Every year on the Fourth of July Gowrie
entices thousands of visitors with promises of
a grand parade, carnival, homemade food, and
much more. But one former resident returning
to town is arriving on two wheels instead of the
traditional four, and no combustion engine is required.

Grant Anderson, son of Eleanor and
George Anderson of Gowrie, left Rapid City on
bicycle on June 28 to arrive here in town one
day before the annual Independence Day celebration. While the 51-year-old is an experienced
biker, this is the first time he has attempted a
ride this long.

Part of being a father is setting an example for your kids, he said. I run a company
and one of the biggest problems you have is
people say It cant be doneI try to set an
example for my kids by doing things that are
tough.

Grant Andersons ride will last six days
and span 600 miles. Day one will take him from
Rapid City to Interior, South Dakota. From
there he will go to Winner, South Dakota on day
two and end in Pickstown, South Dakota on day
three. Day four he will end in Vermillion, South
Dakota and day five will bring him to Mapleton,
Iowa. His final day of riding will bring him to
Gowrie.

Grant Anderson said he has been an avid
biker since he received his first 10-speed bike in
high schoolwhich he rode until it was stolen
in college. Before his trip to Gowrie his longest
ride was 535 miles from Page, Arizona to Nogales, Arizona.

In selecting his route Anderson said he
looked for paved roads off of highways. For his
stopping points he looked for smaller towns, but
they had to be large enough to have a motel.

One of the things I really enjoy about
doing things like this is you stop into these
small little towns, he said. One thing you notice when traveling by the back roads about the
United States is its the friendliest nation in the
world.

He said part of the reason he enjoys biking is his appreciation of solidarity.

It allows you to be alone with yourself
and think. [Thats] one of the things thats very
hard to do now days, especially with electronics
[distracting us], he said.

Grant Anderson said in preparation for
his ride he has two key principlestravel lightly and be ready for anything. Therefore he isnt
bringing much but some of what he is packing
includes a change of clothes, two water bottles,
and several emergency materials such as a
spare, foldable tire; a
patch kit; a spare bike
cable; and tools.

You
hope
you dont have to do
all that stuff and there
is probably a small
chance youll have to
deal with it but I have
been on bike rides before where the cable
has slipped or done
something I dont
want it to do, he said.

Grant Anderson is not the only
Anderson returning to
Gowrie for the fourth.
He said his siblings
are all meeting in town
to visit their parents, a
plan the kids agreed
on several months
ago.

We havent

all met in Gowrie since 2005 so its been almost


a decade, he said. Then I thought I might as
well bike there.

Lets stay alive


this 4th of July
Have a safe holiday...


To prevent death and injury, Iowa law
enforcement is again asking the motoring public to buckle up, slow down and drive sober.
According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, there were 6 traffic fatalities during the 4
day Fourth of July weekend last year, three of
which were alcohol related.

This year, July 1-7, 2014, over 250 city,
county and state law enforcement agencies
across Iowa will participate in a special Traffic Enforcement Program (sTEP) in an effort to
keep everyone safe as they travel. The sTEP
projects are funded by the Governors Traffic
Safety Bureau through a program with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
This money enables more officers to work more
hours on roadways all across the state during
times of the year when travel increases and traffic crashes, injury and death are most probable.

Too many people still take the attitude
that it will never happen to me, sTEP Coordinator Randy Hunefeld said. But fatal crashes
can and do happen every day. Weve made a
lot of progress, but there are still too many people in Iowa dying because they are unbuckled,
speeding, and driving intoxicated or impaired.

Iowa law enforcement officers need
your help and are asking every motorist that
gets behind the wheel to buckle up and drive responsibly. Lets make this 4th of July Holiday,
a safe one.
