Urban Goose Hunt Saylorville Reservoir will be dosed to Urban Goose Hunt scheduled from September 1-9. Closure is due to busy recreational use during the Labor Day period and low water conditions making access extremely difficult to popular marsh areas on the reservoir.

Local HCI Hospice Care Volunteer Honored Iowa has the second highest volunteer rate in the nation thanks to the 38 percent of Iowans who donate their time to brighten the lives of others. Volunteers are as essential to hospice care today as they were when they spearheaded the hospice movement more than 30 years ago. Mary "Mickie" Sevde, Norwalk, is one of these dedicated volunteers for HCI Hospice Care Ser- vices and has been recognized for her contributions by the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of Iowa "I find volunteering for hospice rewarding," Sevde said. It's interesting getting to know the patients and their families and hearing their stories." For the past three years, Sevde has provided her time and talent to help brighten the lives of patients served by HCI Care Serv'u:es. :Sevde offers her companionship to patients by sharing stories, going on walks and read- ing the sports page to sports fans. "Mickie is a very caring person with a big heart who works hard to brighten patients' lives," said Carol Peterson, local HCI Care Services volunteer coordina- tor. "She is always willing to help and is a wonderful advocate for hospice." From helping patients celebrate the New Year with grape juice to transporting patients to see Holiday Lights during Christmas time, Sevde continuously looks for new ways to bring cheer to patients' lives. "She is a de- lightful lady who goes the extra mile to make a patient smile," said Peterson. "She often brings the patients something special like a home baked treat, ice cream shake or colorful flowers." HCI Care Services, formerly Hospice of Central Iowa, is seeking more volunteers like Sevde. Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to contact Carol Peterson at (515) 271-1304. Offering companionship, running er- rands and assisting with clerical duties are some of the volunteer opportunities available through HCI Care Services. ommercia Manre ppicator ertification For those commercial manure applicators who have not yet met their certification requirements this year, the Warren County Extension office will be hosting the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach program Wednesday, Sept. 5, beginning at 9 a.m. The program will run until noon.
