ELY– The opening-soon Dan and Debbie’s Creamery in Ely will sell white and chocolate milk, squeaky cheese curds and homemade ice cream.

Goodbye Bob

Legendary Iowa broadcaster Bob Brooks passed away last weekend.
I had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Bob a little bit when I started covering the Hawkeyes for the North Liberty Leader in 2001.
The thing that made Bob so special was that he treated everyone the same.
Whether you were a high-profile coach, like Hayden Fry, or a weekly sports writer like me.
He also had time to talk and I loved to talk to him about those great Hawkeye football teams in the ‘50s.

All three have different leadership qualities and are important in the chemistry of the team.
To start with, Ally Disterhoft was voted second team All-Big Ten last year and started in 84 of 103 games.
Alexa Kastanek played in 99 games, with 20 starts, and led the Hawkeyes with 56 3-pointers last season.
