Sections of Dubuque Street trail closed for repairs

NORTH LIBERTY– Parts of the Dubuque Street trail were closed starting Monday, Oct. 31, in order to replace multiple panels. As these sections are holding water, it is best to replace them as soon as possible rather than waiting for winter when areas may freeze and crack. Portions of the trail will be closed until the project is complete, anticipated for Monday, Nov. 14. As always, the end date is contingent on weather. Users of the trail should use caution during the repairs.
For additional information contact the City of North Liberty at 626-5700.

A few more gathered in His name

NORTH LIBERTY– They gathered in an early morning mist, heads bowed, hand-in-hand.
They also laughed really loudly, scooped up sugared donuts and jostled each other like the boisterous teenagers they were.
And together, they prayed.
It’s not uncommon for Heritage Christian School (HCS) students to gather in prayer; it’s part of the school routine. It is less common to see students in a public school setting engaging in prayer, though that’s what happened before school on Sept. 28.

Lake Macbride undergoes minor construction

Construction equipment sits where the Lake Macbride Boat Rental and concession building used to be. To avoid future flooding, the building is being moved up the hill, closer to the beach lodge in the park. In the meantime, soil stabilization structures are being established on the slope to minimize sediment running into the shallow bay.  On the south side of the park, a sediment pond is being constructed south and west of the causeway; again to reduce runoff into the lake.

West pounds Wahlert

IOWA CITY– Some call it “the second season.” Officially, it is “the Football Postseason Tournament.” Call it what you will, the bottom line is the same.
It’s do or die time.
Brian Sauser’s West High Trojans survived Wednesday night’s (Oct. 26) first round encounter with Dubuque Wahlert at home, picking up the team’s first postseason win in several years, 66-32.
The Trojans took the kickoff from Wahlert and scored on a Charles Rogers 44 yard keeper with 8:40 left in the first quarter. Alex Troester’s point-after-touchdown (PAT) kick was good, and West had the early 7-0 lead.
