"Helping the World Discover Adel" - Vol. 95 September 2016
Welcome to September in Adel! There's a lot going on this month and we invite you out to take in a game, honor a team, pick Apples, have some BBQ and so much more.

Speaking of teams,this month we had the pleasure to chat with Mike Whisner, coach of the ADM Tigers. 

Terry is back, this month our adventurer is taking on crime. I know... it's  a "phase". Between you and me, if I trip on that towel that keeps dropping off Terrry's neck one more time, I'm "phasing" Terry to do an 18 month wildlife study in Siberia.

So grab a cup of coffee, there's a lot to cover this month and we look forward to seeing you in Adel.

Mike Whisner - ADM Football Coach and Educator 
Fall is here, there is a nip in the air, and it is time for the first Adel DeSoto Minburn Football game!

This September we embrace the time honored traditions of tailgating, homecoming, and cheering for the ADM Tigers.
This month we spoke to Football Coach Mike Whisner about the spirit of coaching and the important role sports plays within the ADM school district.
Coach Mike Whisner is well known to ADM. As a student of Adel High School, Class of 1976, Mike was part of the '75 undefeated season in conference play and State Champion finalists. After graduation, Coach played football at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. For the past 24 years, Mike has been the Head Football coach for ADM.
"After graduating college I came back and was an assistant coach for one year and a substitute teacher in the district. In 1981, I was the coach for Lincoln Center- McGruber. We were an 11-man team for the first time, which was a neat experience to turn the team around. I taught elementary Physical Education and middle school Math. In 1982, I came back to Adel and started teaching Earth & Life Sciences in the middle school for 2 years. I've coached baseball, UNI basketball, wrestling, Girls' basketball and track also. Since then, I have been in Physical Education, 7th-12th grades."
ADM - Football
As a Coach and Educator, Mike Whisner's goal is to help prepare ADM students for the future. Involvement in sports help students learn the power of winning, how to cope with defeat, the skills to work together as team players, and provide the foundations of health and wellness.
Coach Whisner is proud to share these responsibilities and rewards with his assistant coaching staff. As a young coach, Whisner tried to do everything himself. Over the years, "Whiz" has developed a program that encourages the whole team to develop a sense of ownership and pride. Each assistant coach has a niche to call their own, and a responsibility to those players.

"My assistants are a major part of why we are successful. This year I have 8 assistants: Steve Stanley- Offense Coordinator, Bric Nelson-Defense Coordinator, Tyler Bohlke-JV Offense Coordinator, Mark McCartney- Running Backs, Wyatt Speiker- Offensive and Defensive Linemen, Cory Thompson- Defensive Linemen , Alex Reams and Adam Crannell- Defensive Backs."

ADM Football
"We've become more and more successful because the assistant coaches have taken ownership of the program. As you go through life and go through coaching, you have a lot of mini successes and everyday you have some mini failures. That is what shapes you and molds you and how you keep working to be successful. I think the biggest key was to share with all my coaches that responsibility and those successes."

"We have to ask ourselves: did you do all the things you needed to do? If you did, and the other team still won, you take that and go from there. If you weren't successful and maybe you didn't do some things well, you take that and try to do better. You try to relate it to life- its not the end of the world, we can be better, let's work on it."
ADM Football
Senior students are looked to as mentors for the underclassmen. Each year at the start of the season, Whisner gathers the seniors for leadership activities.

During the get-together Coach talks about how to treat others and show respect for the team.

Each year, the seniors identify things to focus on during the season- the list cannot focus on scores or beating a rival team.

The list has to focus on things the students could do as a group to make the most of the season.
"This is a reflection on the kids- this is what they want for the team. This year's list: Be a family, be positive, have a memorable year, be physical, be accountable, communicate, play with passion and pride, have each other's back. Very unselfish goals-things you would want as a parent. These are all acceptable things they can do as a team."
Over the past 2 years, educators and school administrators have researched and discussed addressing the needs of the growing school district.

Playing fields require upkeep and upgrades, prompting the committee to recommend laying a new tr
ack and turf for the football field which is used during PE classes, Soccer season, Track and Field events, and Football season.
Previously a grass field and red clay track, it was a costly expense to reseed or sod the field and repair the track each season. The plastic turf and black track will help reduce injuries to student athletes, save the school district money in the long run, and maintain a pristine appearance.

The cost effective improvements to the current stadium also include upgrading handicap accessible ramps, extending the bleachers, and installing a new score board.
You can check out the upgrades as you join Coach Whisner and the ADM Football team as they open the 2016 season Friday, September 2nd!
Friday is Senior Night, with recognition during the halftime performance of graduating students participating in ADM Marching Band, Cross Country, Cheerleading, Football, and Dance! 7:30pm kick off.
Homecoming is the following week, September 5th-9th with special events planned Thursday, September 8th including Tigerfest Activities at 5:30pm at the high school practice fields, the Homecoming Parade at 6:00pm (route to be determined), with Coronation and the PowderPuff Game at the stadium starting at 7pm. Friday, September 9th join us at the ADM Stadium for the Homecoming Game against Winterset- 7:30 kick off. Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!
35 years has afforded Coach Whisner a positive outlook and balanced point of view. Sports and physical education play an important role in helping students understand their potential and strive for success. Coach is thrilled to see student athletes' continue to work hard for their dreams and accomplish their goals, whether that is on the field, in the board room, or at home.
ADM Football
"I think when you look at ADM football you have a representation of a community that does things right to help their kids be successful. Not just in the win or loss column; I think they are successful in things they are going to do in every day life- run their own business or work for someone else or raise a family. I think ADM students are pretty good communicators.

They understand what they have to do to be successful as far as hard work, they still need to make that choice, but I think if students have been involved with the activities and sports I coach, they are pretty well rounded when they leave."

Together We Can
Together We Can - Co-parenting Program Sept. 13 - Oct. 4th

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Dallas County
in partnership with Waukee Christian Services will be offering Together We Can: Creating  Healthy Future Together, a workshop series for co-parents. 
This program is for single parents with young children or couples in unstable relationships who want to work together to resolve conflict and be involved in their child's life.

Together We Can helps participants develop a positive vision for their child and map out the steps to achieve it. "Research shows children benefit when parents collaborate," said ISU Extension Educator Lisa Mickelson. "This program is really about gaining the knowledge you need to come together and create the best outcomes for your child."
Classes will be held Tuesdays, Sept. 13 through Oct. 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Waukee Christian Services located at 1155 SE Boone Dr. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required to the Dallas County Extension office.

To register or learn more about Together We Can, contact Mickelson at or (515) 993-4281. View the Together We Can flyer
Strengthening Families Program
Strengthening Families Program October 2nd - November 13th 

Strengthening Families Workshop offers Guidance for Parents of Pre-teens

Beginning this fall, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Dallas County will be offering Strengthening Families Program: For Parents and Youth, ages 10-14
This seven-week series helps families build communication, problem-solving and stress-coping techniques by working together. For adults, the program helps to improve parenting skills by building a positive relationship with children, setting appropriate limits and following through on consequences - all while showing love and support. 
"We were looking for ideas," said past participant Doug Barry of Waukee.
"We had three kids but we didn't have the skills that we thought we should have. There's no manual for raising a 14-year-old and 10-year-old."

Youth have much to gain from SFP: 10-14, too. As adults discuss and share in a separate room, youth engage in topics of how to deal with stress, set goals and handle peer pressure.

"Youth learn about steps needed to reach their goals. It helps them to be future-oriented, so they're more likely to make better decisions than if they're just in the moment," said ISU Extension and Outreach Educator Lisa Mickelson who facilitates the program. In the second half of the weekly sessions, families unite and interact through activities to solidify lessons, work toward building more stable relationships while having fun doing so.
"One thing I love about the program is you do it together. It's not just for parents. The youth participate as well," Mickelson said. "Sometimes with the stresses of everyday life, you just don't have time to relax and enjoy your family." 
Workshops will be held at the Waukee Elementary School on Sundays, October 2 to November 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. with a free family meal at 5 p.m. 

Registration is $19 per family and can be completed online through Waukee Community Education at For more information contact, Lisa Mickelson at (515) 993-4281 or

ISU Ext Great Beginnings for Families
Great Beginnings for Families October 13th - November 10th

Great Beginnings for Families
For parents of infants through preschoolers.

Beginning October 13, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in partnership with Waukee Community Ed will be offering Great Beginnings for Families, a five-week skills building program for parents of infants through preschoolers.

Great Beginnings helps mothers and fathers learn how to effectively administer positive discipline and guidance while helping their young cope with anger and conflict. Encouraging learning through play and understanding the key principles of child development are also core lessons of this program.

"Trying to communicate or reason with a little one whose language isn't developed can cause stress for both child and parent, presenting unique yet frustrating challenges," said ISU Extension Educator and Great Beginnings facilitator, Lisa Mickelson.
"This program provides participants with the tools they need to overcome these challenges and build a strong family."

Great Beginnings for Families will take place Thursdays, October 13 to November 10 from 
6:30-7:45 p.m. at the Waukee Walnut Hills Elementary located at 4240 NW 156th St. in Urbandale.
Registration is $10 and can be completed online at (course #F1601). For more information contact Lisa at or (515) 993-4281.

Cowboy Church UMC Adel Iowa
You're Invited to Cowboy Church at Adel UMC Sept 18th

We are SET! Join the Adel United Methodist Church on September 18th for a single worship hour, beginning at 10:00 am for Cowboy Church.

Pastor John hopes you will invite others to share in this special worship experience, followed by an outdoor BBQ.

Brick Street BBQ will once again have their delicious BBQ dishes for us to enjoy. No Sunday school on this day.

Cowboy churches are local Christian churches within the cowboy culture that are distinctively Western heritage in character.

A typical cowboy church may meet in a rural setting in a barn, metal building, arena, sale barn, or the back of a feed store; have its own rodeo arena, and a country gospel band. Baptisms are generally done in a stock tank.

There is almost always an opportunity to honor our Veterans and the sermons are usually short and simple. Prior to 1980 there were about 5 cowboy churches in Texas, now the number exceeds 200, and there are an estimated 750 nationwide. In Iowa, there are at least 5 but there may be more.

Recipes From Home
Recipe of the Month -
Inspired Hot Dogs

My Dad always insisted on 100% beef hot dogs and he'd shake his head at me when I put ketchup on them. He was a mustard only kind of guy.

He'd cringe if he knew what went in to today's hot dogs. That's probably why I choose "Kosher" or "Nathan's" for the annual cookout.

There's more to cooking a perfect hot dog than burning them... (cough...TERRY!...). A good dog is slow grilled and turned regularly until it's ready to almost burst. I like mine wrapped in bacon, with Irish mustard, sauerkraut and served in a homemade bun.

The adults are a bit more adventurous. During past cookouts I've been impressed by the variety of "Chicago-style" or "New York-inspired" sandwiches everyone came up with.

In honor of Labor Day and Grill masters everywhere, here are a few choice dogs to enjoy!

Inspired Hot Dogs
  • High-quality Frankfurters or Sausages.
  • Quality buns.
Chicago-Style Dog
  • Dill Pickle Relish
  • Dill Pickle Spear
  • Tomato Spears
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Minced Onion
  • Hot Gardianara
Tip: Spreadable condiments first, dog in the center, spears on either side, topped with onion and peppers.

The Ruben
  • Corned Beef or Pastrami
  • Thousand Island Dressing
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Caraway Seeds
  • Sauerkraut
  • Pickle Spear
Tip: Melt cheese on bun, then construct.
New York Inspired
  • Sauerkraut
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Minced Onion
  • Caraway Seeds
Slaw Dogs
  • Creamy Coleslaw
  • Yellow Mustard
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Black Pepper
The Take Out Takedown
  • Siracha Hot Sauce
  • Honey
  • Chinese Mustard
  • Ginger Powder
  • Sesame Seeds
Tip: Combine all ingredients to your liking. Brush sauce on dogs while cooking.

Terry Traveller
Terry Traveler - Super Hero     

Terry Traveler here, your sidekick in the never ending battle for justice.

Yes, my friends, its official; I have become a Super Hero.

What super powers do I possess you may ask? You may well ask, for I have none. I cannot fly, nor fall with style. I cannot see through walls, nay I can barely see through my sunglasses.

I am not wealthy and therefore incapable of building cool gadgets to make up for my lack of super strength. I cannot command cats to do my bidding anymore- last time my cat won every auction on eBay and I'm still paying off the balance.

My rise to Super Hero status has been triumphant. 3 weeks ago I was awarded a Gold Star after I donated blood and cried for only an hour. 2 weeks ago I was awarded the title Super Employee in recognition of emailing my 1 millionth chain letter. And just today, when I thought my luck couldn't soar any higher, I received my Official League of Super Heros Membership Card.

I haven't decided on my Super Hero name yet. Maybe "The Orange Crusader", but that sounds like a soda pop.  I was originally thinking "The Tick" but my cousin already goes by that particular nom de plume. As always, the good ones are already taken.

Fear not, citizens of; I may be nameless, and I may be powerless, I may cause damage to your personal property, I may operate without a cape, in times of trouble, I may be too busy to help, I may use the phrase "I may" too often, and I may forget the point of this sentence, but I promise to be the best Super Hero this community has ever seen.

Silent, in the shadows, not on the rooftops because I'm scared of heights, and at the request of local authorities, at home by 10pm.

Your partner in crime fighting,
Terry Traveler
