Six to compete for Tiffin council

TIFFIN– The departure last month of councilmen Chris Ball and Travis Weipert has resulted in two open seats on the Tiffin City Council. Six candidates have expressed their desire to fill those seats and will appear on the ballot Nov. 6.
Tiffin voters will be able to vote for two and the winners will occupy one-year terms to fill the vacancies.
The candidates, as listed by the Johnson County Auditor’s Office are: Royce W. Phillips;, Joshua T. Oswald; Nelson Olivier; Allen Moore; Joan F. Kahler; and Jenny Carhoff.

Creek Girls sail past Williamsburg in three

TIFFIN– It only took the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers three sets to sink the Williamsburg Raiders Tuesday night on the home floor.
The Clippers won the first set 25-7, dominating throughout. The second set saw CCA down 5-3 early before the Clippers righted the ship and battled back to the 25-22 win. In the third set, the Creek Girls held leads of 10-5 and 19-9 before a late Raider rally. The Clippers held-on for the 25-17 win.

Tearing down the Fort; CCA 45, Ft. Madison 14

FORT MADISON– The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) armada sailed to Fort Madison Friday night and sent the Bulldogs to the pound with a 45-14 non-conference victory.
CCA held a seven point lead after two quarters, but blew it open in the second half while holding Fort Madison scoreless.
The Clippers put a pair of touchdowns on the scoreboard in the first quarter for an early 14-0 lead with Jonathan Nzombo scoring on a 3-yard run and Konrad Moore finding the end zone on a 1-yard quarterback keeper. Niels VanElsas put up the extra point kicks.

West High Trojans stay on top

IOWA CITY– Just before the West High Trojans took the field Friday night, the cheerleaders stretched a banner across their path reading “we’re staying unbeaten.”
The Trojans not only blasted through the banner, they made good on the statement, wrecking visiting Dubuque Senior’s vision of a perfect season with a 42-7 stomping.
West moved to a perfect 5-0 (and the top of the MVC Mississippi Division) while the Rams moved to 4-1.
The game could’ve been called “The Ezra Reiners Show,” as the senior put up three touchdowns and led the ground war with 159 yards of rushing.

Food For Thought

My paternal grandmother, who was a teenage immigrant from Germany, never wasted food (or anything else I can think of). I remember watching with awe when she ate an apple. She didn’t peel it and discard the skin. She didn’t even twist off the stem and leave it behind. There was certainly no core to dispose of when she was finished. She ate everything– including the seeds.

Walkin'

We left the Great Allegheny Passage on our second day, picked up the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal (C&O) as we rolled out of Cumberland, Md. (home to the city-wide happy hour every Friday night) and headed eventually to Washington, D.C.
We had the odd fortune of bicycling every day with rain predicted but never felt a drop until the seventh. On that day no rain was expected but we rode thru a steady drizzle, sat out one shower and rode through another. Nevertheless, every day of the first week was hot and very humid.
