Minding its business

NORTH LIBERTY– What role should a city take in helping its businesses?
North Liberty City Council members want to know what you think.
At least two council members have been asking for a written economic policy, a framework for how it financially assists businesses looking to locate in North Liberty.
Of equal interest to the council last Tuesday was how it can help small businesses and the mom-and-pop shops that are already here.

Victory in Ft. Dodge

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
FORT DODGE — As always, they came to win it all.
Last year, following the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers’ 4-1 loss in the championship runner-up game, Coach Jim White said “they didn’t come up here to play for third.”

CCA pulls out first round win: Clippers 6, Hawks 5

FORT DODGE — It took nine innings to do it, but the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers squeezed out a 6-5 win over the Hawks of West Delaware in the first round of the Class 3A State Softball Tournament.
Heat and humidity combined for a heat index north of 100 degrees as the teams assembled on diamond 2 of the Harlan Rogers Sports Complex. The Hawks turned up the heat in the bottom of the first inning with a two-RBI double and a 2-0 lead.

The boys are back

IOWA CITY — The third time could be the charm.
The past two seasons have found the West High Trojans bringing home the Class 4A Runner-Up banner rather than a baseball State Championship. Defeating rival City High Wednesday evening punched the Trojans’ ticket to Des Moines for another shot at the top.
City has been something of a punching bag for the Trojans this season, as the men in green spanked City each of three outings, and beat the Little Hawks badly enough to invoke the ten-run mercy rule twice.
