Season on the brink

Hawk Talk

Iowa caught in Penn State nightmare, 41-14

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
Not in my wildest (bad) dreams did I see this coming for the Hawkeye football team.
I really believed Iowa had a shot at winning the Big Ten West for the second season in a row.
I wasn’t the only one.
I kept the two preseason football magazines and both of them thought the Hawks would compete for the West title.

Heaven and hell

Blame it all on the Cubs.

Do-not-call

Food For Thought

Now that the election is over with, we can relax a little every time the telephone rings and hope the call is from someone we actually know and wish to talk to. Enough with the surveys and polls and political pitches. Nearly every one of those calls started out with a recorded message, and after a lifetime of feeling guilty about being rude, I’ve been able to hang up on them without apology. I guess I got the most satisfaction from hanging up, several times, on Donald Trump.

Soft heart, strong faith

Phillips pushes amendment rights, economy in bid for state house

CORALVILLE– Royce Phillips didn’t always want to be a pastor.
Growing up in Forth Worth, Texas, he possessed a knack for math and science and had every intention of being a physicist at NASA.
“If I wasn’t going to be a physicist, I was going to teach math at the University of Texas system somewhere,” he said. “That was just the assumption.”

Nielsen to stress Midwest belief system, public education if elected

NORTH LIBERTY– Amy Nielsen thinks North Liberty is the best place to live in Iowa, but she’s willing to make Des Moines “home” part of the year if voters choose her to represent Iowa House District 77 at the polls on Nov. 8.
“We have just about anything you could want or need right here,” said Nielsen. “I’m sure there are other places where people are proud of their community, but I just feel it so strongly here in North Liberty.”
