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.

HEART ATTACK FATAL TO HERB CANTONWINE

Herb Cantonwine, 79, died at his home in Vinton this morning following a heart attack. He had been ill only a short time. Cantonwine was born May 1, 1873, in Benton township, a son of Mr. and Mrs. David Cantonwine. He married Ora Culp in Eden township Feb. 27, 1901. A retired farmer, Mr. Cantonwine farmed most of his life in Benton township. He moved to Vinton in 1947. He is survived by his wife and three children.

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.

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.
