On Wednesday, Jan. 1, at 8:50 p.m., the Sioux County Sheriff's Pathologist finds cause of Post death HNDINGS --- from A1 Both Sioux County Sheriff Jim Schiwsow and County Attorney Melissa O'Rourke have indicated that some action should take place well before the deadline. In a written statement issued by the new county attorney's office, the prosecution stated, "The Sioux County Sheriff's Office, along with the Sioux County Attorney's Office, is engaged in a continuing investigation regarding the death of Dick Post of Rock Valley. The Sioux County Sheriff's OffiCe may have an additional public statement to make; however, pursuant to the Iowa Code of Professional Responsibility, the prosecuting attorney's office is precluded from making statements about these mat- ters beyond what is already con- mined in public records." The statement continued, "Based upon additional information obtained through the continuing investigation, the Sioux County Attorney's Office expects to make a decision regarding formal charges prior to that date." Schwiesow, contacted by phone, could not comment officially on the results prior to press time, instead suggesting that "something" will be coming soon. On Tuesday, Jan. 7, the Sioux County Attorney's and the Sioux County Sheriff's Offices' carried out an order for the disinterment of the remains of Post, a Rock Valley area farmer who died at the Valley Manor Care Center, in Rock Valley, on April 16. The remains were removed to the Laboratory of Clinical Medicine in Sioux Falls, S.D., where an autopsy was per- ,formed on Wednesday, Jan. 8, by Dr. Brad Randall, a forensic pathol- ogist. Dr. Randall was able to deft- nitely establish the cause of Mr. Post's death during the post mortem examination. An official report of his findings was forward- ed to the County Attorney's and Sheriff's Offices'. On Dec. 3 inVestigators of the Sheriff's Office filed a complaint and affidavit alleging that Van Oort, age 26, or Rock Valley, caused the death of Post. Van Oort was taken into custody by agents of the Sheriff's Office and later waived a preliminary.hearing of her case. Her bond was reduced to I0 percent of $50,000 s bsequent to the waiving of the preliminary hearing, and she has remained' con- tinuously in custody, at the Oseeola County Jail, on the Sioux County charges since the time of her arrest. ADM launches new cooking oil I Archer Daniels Midland Company has ] announced the launch of Enova brand cooking I oil __ a revolutionary new cooking oil clinical- ly shown to help with the fight against body fat and obesity. ADM says the oil is an exciting and entirely new type of oil, the fu t and only oil that can help millions of Americans with their struggle to maintain a healthy weight and fight obesity. The soybean and canola oil product will be sold in 20-oonce bottles through grocery and other retail food stores and has been the subject of much anticipation in the food industry. Developed in Japan, Enova oil was introduced in Japan in 1999 and has become the best-sell- ing oil in that market. More than 15 years of research and numerous studies have indicated that the oil helps reduce both body weight and fat mass when used as part of a sensible diet. New ethanol plant constructed Farmer owners of Big River Resources, LLC have begun construction on their ethanol plant in West Burlington. Big River's farmer-owners are approximately split between Iowa and Illinois. The plant will process more than 15 AG NOTES ,I million bushels of corn into 40 million gallons of ethanol and 120,000 tons of distillers dried grains annually. According to the Renewable Fuels Association, there are currently 69 ethanol plants nationwide with the capacity to produce 2.7 billion gallons annually. There are 10 addi- tional plants under construction. Drought-resistant rice created Scientists at Comell University have devel- oped biotech rice that is more tolerant of drought, salty soil and low temperatures, yet is highly productive. The researchers fused E. coil genes and intro- duced them in the rice to make trehalose, a sugar that helps plants live through drought. "Resurrection" plants that grow in the desert produce trehalose in order to survive dry condi- tions. Drought-stressed resurrection plants look like they are dead and gone forever, then they pop back to life when moisture is available. That's the power of trehalose in combating stress, and it gave researchers an idea to help important crop plants survive stress. The scientists said the technology could be used in corn, wheat and other crops. Comell has been working to create stress-tolerant rice since 1996. U.S. food security declines Food security -- access by all people at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life -- declined in the United States from 1999 to 2001. The prevalence of food insecurity increased by .6 percentage points and the preva- lence of hunger by .3 percent during the period. Food security is one of several necessary conditions for a population to be healthy and well nourished. The USDA monitors food secu- rity in the nation's households through an annu- al survey of 40,000 households conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The most recent security survey reveals 89.3 percent of U.S. households were food secure throughout the calendar year 2001. The remain- ing 10.7 percent of the U.S. households (11.5 million) were food insecure. That means that some time during the year, these households were uncertain of having enough food to meet basic needs of all their members because they had insufficient money or other resources.
