Honoring Lives of Service
Members of the American Legion, Post 313 of Odebolt, who passed away in 2014 were transferred to Post Everlasting in a solemn ceremony conducted by the American Legion, District 9 of Sac County on April 19th at the Legion Hall in Lytton.

Odebolt Legion members transferred to Post Everlasting were Earl Buehler, - Navy, WW2; Leo Cooper - Army, Korea; and Harvey Keller - Army, WW2.

Members of the American Legion Auxiliary, Roose Post of Odebolt, who passed away in 2014, were honored in a separate ceremony that included presenting a white rose and lighting a candle in memory of each.  Auxiliary members honored at this year's ceremony were Margaret McGonigle and Eleanor Peterson.

Families of some of the deceased members attended the ceremony.  A light lunch and cakes decorated in patriotic colors were served by the Odebolt Auxiliary after the ceremony.

Consider Running for School Board
The Iowa Association of School Boards urges Iowans who are passionate about education to consider running for election to their local school boards, in order to ensure a bright future for all children and communities across the state.

Nominations for open seats on the state's 336 local public school boards can be filed between July 6 and 5 p.m. July 30, 2015.  School Board elections will take place on September 8.

Strong leadership in every school district is critical to moving education forward in this state. School Board members play significant roles in their communities - members must have leadership, vision and dedication.

School board members are locally elected public officials charged with accountability for student learning, determining educational goals, setting policy, overseeing school finances and other duties. Across Iowa, more than 2,000 men and women serve on local school boards, guiding the education of nearly 480,000 young people at an annual expenditure of more than $5.2 billion.

School board members are elected to serve four-year terms, with elections taking place in odd-numbered years. Those elected receive no pay.

Nomination papers for school board seats are available from local school board secretaries. School board candidates must obtain the signatures of at least one percent of the qualified electors of the district or 50 electors, whichever is less, but at least 10 signatures. A free guide for board candidates, titled "Leaders Who Care," can be found at
