Last week about 90 people showed up to learn some different steps. Iowa Information PUBLISHERS AND PRINTERS Side Trips Iowa State University has been celebrating Greek Week and our freshman son has done his share to contribute. He’s been rehearsing for the lip sync competition for weeks, including choreography and costumes. He sent a picture shortly before they were ready to compete on Saturday and I noticed he also was wearing makeup. I always knew he had long eyelashes, but coated in mascara they became even more pronounced. He also participated in the polar plunge, but due to the unseasonable weather, the event was moved indoors and involved jumping into a swimming pool. Somehow the efforts to raise money for a philanthropic cause become less motivating if the “polar”portion is an indoor pool. Tonight he called for just a few minutes as he was on his way to the fraternity house to bake cookies. “Bake cookies?” I questioned. That too had something to do with a service project, though I never learned if they were planning to sell cookies or give them away to other houses or community groups. I’m curious to see how that went. When he was younger Sam would occasionally mix up a batch of chocolate chip cookies just to eat some of the dough. The baking part he left to me. I’m curious to hear how a bunch of college guys did in the kitchen. Hopefully there was supervision.

One demonstration of that commitment is by their transition to becoming Provider-Based Clinics Spirit Lake Medical Center in 2012 with LRH, after officially forming a partnership with Lakes Regional Healthcare. By working together, the clinics and hospital will integrate services, resulting in less duplication of services, and provide more streamlined, and ultimately less costly, care for patients. Healthcare begins with the selection of a family practice physician and both clinics have many physicians from which to choose. Avera Medical Group Lakes Family Practice has five family physicians: Dr. Thomas Kalkhoff, Dr. Steven Baskerville, Dr. Steven Vanderleest, Dr Andrew Muetin, Dr. Michael Kalkhoff, Natalie Potrament ARNP. Avera Medical Group Spirit Lake Medical Center has five family physicians: Dr. Jeffrey Goeers, Dr. Brett Olson, Dr. Zachary Borus, Dr. Mara Groom, Jessica Kelley ARNP, Marsha Haar ARNP.
