Hawkeye Football

Hawk Talk

2017 schedule (Part 2)

Last week I talked about the Hawkeye football schedule for this fall.
I had the Hawks favored over Wyoming, Iowa State, North Texas State, Michigan State and Illinois.
I thought Penn State would be favored over Iowa at Kinnick.
This week I’ll try to come up with Iowa being favored in at least four more games so I can win my bet (a Heineken beer) with Mike Evans.
The Hawks finish the season with three home games: Minnesota, Ohio State and Purdue.

SCSD Hopping Iguanas compete in CBJ Battle of the Bands

The event, which will showcase six company-sponsored bands, will be held from 6-9 p.m. Aug. 24 at Big Grove Brewery in Iowa City.

The green menace

Food For Thought

Many years ago, I enrolled in an art class to learn more about painting with watercolors. I’d majored in art in college and had concentrated more on oil painting, but had always wished I knew more about this more portable form of painting. The watercolor class was in the summer and most of the sessions were held outdoors. I became acutely aware of the many different shades and variations of green there are in our landscape and eventually became seriously tired of green paint.

“We were very pleased with the deep pool of qualified candidates we had to choose from,” said Ryan Heiar, North Liberty City Administrator. “Getting the public’s input will be vital to the final decision on a role that is incredibly important to our community.”

Maroons deny IC West

Still looking for a championship

DES MOINES– Iowa City West High’s varsity baseball team has gone to the state baseball tournament four years in a row, and for the fourth time has returned home without a Class 4A state championship trophy.

For the birds

Area naturalists band together for feathered fun

OXFORD– Bird nerds– they’re everywhere.
According to a 2011 survey by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, over 46 million Americans enjoy bird watching. Twenty-two percent of Iowans over the age of 16 are birders. And Johnson County is host to a thriving intergenerational and growing birding community.
Sophia Davis, who recently finished eighth grade at Northwest Junior High, was a member of the Iowa City Bird Club for four years.
