Benton Resident Escapes Serious Injury in Upset

Vinton, Ia. -- Dale Cantonwine, 21, resident of the country southeast of Vinton, escaped serious injury Saturday night when he lost control of his car as he rounded a corner between the Mud Creek bridge and Harold Miller farm and the car crashed in the ditch.

Cantonwine was unconscious when picked up by passerby and taken to the Vinton hospital. An examination revealed that he was suffering from shock and bruises. Later he was able to return to his home. Damage to his 1946 Ford was estimated at around $400.

Young Cantonwine had left his wife and baby here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Primmer, and was returning to the Cantonwine farm.

He said a car ahead stirred up so much dust that he was unable to see the road ahead. During the summer he worked here with his father-in-law but is now employed in Cedar Rapids.

New bell ring in an old treat for folks in Tipton

TIPTON -- "Ding, ding, ding, ding"

In the distance, a bell rings, a bell that sounds new and distinctive to kids and nostalgic to their parents. The kids may not know what it is, but the parents can already feel the tingling coldness of a fudgesicle on their tongues.

Mmmmmmmmm! It makes you wonder. How many sandlot baseball games, hid-'n'-seek games and just plain afternoons running around the yard have been interrupted, at least temporarily, by the clanging of the ice cream man's bell?

Millions, maybe billions. But sadly it's not like that any more. Unless you happen live in Tipton.

There Wendy Daedlow and her mother, Pat Cantonwine, have brought back a scoop of youth that melted away a quarter of a century ago in Tipton.

Their pedal bicycle, its large hatches high above the ground so kids can't reach inside, rolls along the streets every afternoon. The bells ring. And when it pulls up to the curb, Wendy digs out a Spacesicle, a snow cone, a Blockbuster, a .... She collects 50 cents for each and the customers unwrap the treat and enjoy.

I ask for a dreamsicle. The orange, creamy bar was always my favorite.

Sorry, Wendy explains. She used to sell Dreamsicles, but they didn't sell well. Even as the cheapest item in the cart at 30 cents, people didn't buy it.

"The more expensive items sell the best," she says. "I do not know why."

Maybe it's because people think the more they pay, the more ice cream they get. After all, when your stomach screams for ice cream you want all the ice cream possible. I mean, just think about it a minute, If there is one summer dream every kid in America has, it must be to own an ice cream wagon with an endless supply of ice cream.

That's not really why Wendy and her mom got into the business. They thought it would be nice to make some extra money. They also thought kids in town would like to hear the ice cream man's bells. And eat they Ice cream

It turns out that adults like it just as much. Almost half the customers are adults, especially people during the afternoon on work breaks.

I had a Blockbuster -- a red and white popsicle with ice cream in the middle. Delicious.

Staying away from these ice cream bars could be tough. Wendy's husband, Chris, who rides the bike in the evenings, grabs one every once in a while. And Wendy sometimes eats as many as four in one day.

"But I pay for them," she adds quickly. "Otherwise, with six people in the family, we would eat up all the profits.

"I even make my own children pay for it. They have to do their chores," Wendy says. "I even have some kid's who say "We can get it free because we're friends of Chad.' But it doesn't work that way,"

Wendy and Chris's children --- Chad, 8 Toni, 7, Erica, 6, and Jodi, 3 -- love the new business. They’d help but they're too young now. Instead, they stay with grandma (Pat) while Wendy loads ice cream for her 2 p.m. sales stop at the Cedar County Shop. By 3 p.m. Wendy stops at Tipton Electric and then heads for Pat's home.

Chris soon returns from the Quad Cities where he is an engineer for Caterpillar, and, after supper, prepares to head out again. Often he stops at softball games and sets up shop. The hours can be long and sometimes boring, he admits. But his bosses make him keep trying to sell the ice cream.

"I tell you, if you think it's bad working for a regular boss, you should try working for these two," Chris says, grinning.

Wendy and Pat laugh.

Chris admits the single speed bike has given him stronger legs, led to a little needed weight loss and allowed him to get a deeper tan. It's also not too bad making a little extra money.

The Daedlows have a lease agreement with Dixie Dee ice cream company of the Quad Cities. They sell about 150 ice cream items a week. One big week, however, Chris sold $373 worth and was listed in the Dixie Dee newsletter as one of the top salesmen of the week.

So far this summer Wendy, Pat and Chris are pretty satisfied with the results. They plan to ride the bike at least through Labor Day and then tally up the expenses and profits.

If they come out ahead, they plan to be back next year. In fact there is a chance they may try to get another bike for Tipton, or some other nearby community. And maybe another one. And another.

And who knows, in a few years, the ice cream man's bell could become familiar to kids once again.

Got Her Wish

A Cedar Rapids woman was arrested Monday on charges of intoxication, interfering with official acts and criminal mischief after she insisted that police arrest her along with a friend.

Events began when police were called to the Joseph Mara residence, 921 16th Ave. SE, on a complaint of damage to a wooden fence. According to the police report, two men were sliding on ice in a driveway adjacent to the Mara fence, crashing into the fence and breaking it.

Police arrested Donald N. Cantonwine, 18, of 1134 10th St. SE, on charges of intoxication and criminal mischief. The second man, unidentified, fled in a car.

In Cantonwine's company was Jean Marie Zach, 19, of 1026 15thSt. SE. The report said that as officers placed Cantonwine under arrest, Zach told officers she too was intoxicated and should be arrested.

She then leaned against the back door of the police car to prevent officers from putting Cantonwine into the car. Zach refused to move away from the door and was subsequently placed under arrest.

Police said she physically resisted arrest and had to be forced into the back seat of the vehicle for transportation to the Linn jail.

Charles, the patriarch of the Cantonwine family, immigrated to America from Prussia in 1806, arriving in Philadelphia, Penn., aboard the ship Orlando. The ship's passenger list shows "Chr. Kuntentwine, single man." The name Kuntentwine later evolved to Cantonwine, and Charles appears to be the only surnamed Kuntentwine/Cantonwine to immigrate to America. Eight or so years after his arrival in Philadelphia, in about 1814, Charles married Mary Magdalena Scholl, daughter of Charles Jacob & Margaret (Fuhr) Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.

Steven Raymond Cantonwine, age 64, passed away on December 26, 2020 in St. Louis, Missouri. He was born in Vinton, Iowa on January 30, 1956 to Phianna and Raymond Cantonwine. Steve lived in Vinton until 1970 and graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School in 1974. Steve was active in football and basketball while in high school. Steve received a Master of Science in Business degree at the University of Iowa and went on to earn his Juris Doctorate at the University of Missouri School of Law in Kansas City, Missouri. Steve married and became the father of two lovely daughters, Sara, and Molly. He enjoyed attending their sport and academic events. Steve enjoyed traveling with his family and spoke of Alaska and Costa Rica among his favorite places to visit. Steve especially loved animals, his Palomino, Tony, he rode when growing up, always helping out on the farm and his German Shorthair Pointer, Gunner. Gunner was beside Steve until the very end of Steve's illness. A true and loyal companion. Steve also loved visiting family in Nebraska and Iowa sharing his current research in the genealogy of the Cantonwine and Shockley families. Steve was adventurous when it came to cars driving old convertibles and driving fast.

Steve spent 34 years as a defense attorney helping those in need. As one client said, "he will always be remembered as a kind soul when it came to being there for his clients and defending them". Steve enjoyed his life's work but always put his family first. His daughters meant the world to him.

Steve is survived by his daughters, Sara Cantonwine, Los Angeles, California, and Molly Cantonwine, St. Louis, Missouri, his sisters, Christy (Doug) Nielsen, Louisville, Nebraska, Julie (Jon) Vogt, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, half-sister Kelly Wulfkuhle, Topeka, Kansas. Nieces, Jenny Vogt and Anna Doeschot. Nephews, Chad Anson, Lee Cimfel, Jared Vogt, Blake and Casey Wulfkuhle and Grandnieces Lexi and Laney Anson. Steve is preceded in death by his mother, Phianna Kay Shockley (2008), his father, Raymond Steven Cantonwine (2018) and by his nephew, Matthew Christopher Cimfel (1997).

A memorial mass was held for Steve on January 5, 2021 in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Cantonwine family wishes to invite family and friends of Steve to a 'Celebration of Life' gathering planned for Saturday, May 15, from 2-5 pm at the Mt. Pleasant Golf and Country Club in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. This will be an informal event with an opportunity to reminisce and reflect on moments we have shared with Steve during his lifetime. Memorial donations may be made in person or to Steve's favorite dog rescue, the National German Shorthaired Pointer (GPS) Rescue https://www.gspca.org/Rescue/donate.html.

Home life has lessons for chief of schools
Byline: Steve Giegerich;

The older daughter mastered the intricacies of the square root at the age of 6. Now a freshman at one of the country's top engineering schools, she is a member of Mensa International, the organization limited to those with an IQ in the upper 2 percent of the world's population.

Her sister, a junior at a county high school, defies even greater odds.

She is one of the rare people on the planet who have been diagnosed with the genetic aberration identified in scientific circles as the "interstitial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 1."

The axis formed by sisters Sara and Molly Cantonwine extends far beyond the south St. Louis County subdivision they call home, transcending family to inform the education of the 30,000 children under the supervision of their mother, the superintendent of the St. Louis Public Schools.

When it comes to describing her children, Diana Bourisaw is disarmingly direct.

Sara, a first-year double-major at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, is "gifted and talented."

Molly, 16, is not.

At least not as the term is generally defined.

They are two daughters, at two extremes, each with gifts that reach into the lives touched by their mother and father, lawyer Steven Cantonwine.

"They say there is a reason parents of special-needs kids are given a challenge," Bourisaw said.

For Bourisaw and Cantonwine, the reasons are abundantly clear.

At home, Molly applies deeper meaning and understanding to the family's faith.

At school district headquarters, Bourisaw said, her children "help me appreciate the strengths of all kids. Some parents think the only way to excel is academically, to earn a place on the Honor Society or a spot in a top college. Sara excels at academics. But Molly excels in other ways. She excels by serving (Mass) at church and helping our neighbors and volunteering."

The intersection of Bourisaw's personal and professional lives rarely displays itself in public. During the first stormy year of her tenure atop the state's largest school district, she remained serene in the face of barbs from the former School Board president, tension over state intervention and the transition to the appointed board now running the schools.

It's in conversations with reporters or addresses to small audiences that Bourisaw's passion for education, and a glimpse at the forces behind it, emerge.

Sometimes Bourisaw mentions how she was the first in a family of steel workers to receive a degree, or how her mother, inspired by example, later put herself through college as an adult.

Steve Cantonwine's journey took him from an Iowa farm to odd jobs (the couple met while Cantonwine was a prison guard and Bourisaw a student at Iowa State University), a bachelor degree and then law school.

Parenthetically, Bourisaw does occasionally reveal that her children have special needs, each in her own way.

Sara, as a college freshman, is moving in her own direction now.

Molly, meanwhile, is nurtured by a network that moves from home into the neighborhood, her school, church, advocacy groups for the disabled and other organizations that support those efforts.

Her differences, Cantonwine and Bourisaw say, were obvious almost from the start. Her parents waited nine months for her sit up; 14 months passed before she slept through the night.

Until geneticists identified her disorder in 2001, the source of wide-ranging neurological symptoms that veered from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to obsessive-compulsive disorder to emotional withdrawal remained a mystery. The disorder is marked by a mutated chromosome, which leads to a host of cognitive problems.

Not programmed to equate darkness with rest, Molly often wanders the house most of the night, able to subsist on sleep of two hours or less. Naturally gregarious, she withdraws when teased or criticized. Her attention span is short, but not so much that she can't read, write or understand basic mathematics.

"She's kind of been all over the map," said Bourisaw. "She doesn't fit into anything that is normal, that's all I can say."

The observations of Bourisaw the parent provided incomparable lessons for Bourisaw the administrator.

In hiring for the city schools(and before that, the Fox School District and as an area superintendent in Sacramento, Calif.) Bourisaw's gold standard is the teacher who showed Sara how to capitalize on her intelligence and, when Sara's sister entered her class years later, tapped into every avenue of Molly's capabilities.

"That teacher knew how to adapt to the needs of the kids in her class. And that's what I want for our kids," said Bourisaw, "I want to create schools that are supportive of all kids; schools that challenge the gifted child and also challenge the special needs child."

At first shy, Molly later warms up and is eager to share her life's triumphs -- which are many -- with a stranger. She begins by proudly displaying photographs of her service at Mass. A favorite of priests and parishioners alike, she has long been a staple of the family's parish.

The photographs are followed by certificates attesting to Molly's standing as manager of her high school volleyball team and details of volunteer efforts with the Magic House and the City Museum.

Molly also volunteers for agencies that work with young people with special needs. In her senior year, Molly will hold a seat on the student council.

After graduation, her parents hope to enroll Molly in a hospitality curriculum at a local community college. It makes sense, said Bourisaw, for a kid known as the "concierge."

The ultimate goal is the day Molly can live on her own or independently under supervision.

Bourisaw and Cantonwine have no doubt the objective will be met.

"It's not that she can't do well," said the mother, "She just does well differently."

"We tend to teach to kids' deficits," the superintendent added, "We need to teach to their strengths.
