Hawks give preview of coming season

I was jacked up for some Hawkeye football last Saturday.
I filled my cooler with food and liquids and headed into Kinnick about 9 a.m. for the 11 a.m. practice.
Of course I wasn’t the first one there but I found a great parking spot outside the stadium.
The lot starting filling up around 10 a.m. and then a line formed in front of the gates about 10:30 a.m.
I went in a little after 11 a.m. and the sun was baking down on the new prescription turf.

Walkin'

“I’ll Keep My Guns, Freedom And Money . . . You Can Keep The ‘Change,’” read a bumper sticker on a car I spotted in front of the grocery store recently.
Of the different sentiments Republicans try to express, it’s perhaps the one I can live with the most because at least it’s honest. I’m privileged, armed and I like it that way is so much more at the heart of conservatism than the smoke screen about family values.
Republicans have no lock on values, but are very strong on greed.

NLYBS has another winning season

NORTH LIBERTY¬ The North Liberty Youth Baseball and Softball league (NLYBS) recently completed its seventeenth year of providing recreational level baseball and softball opportunities for some 787 boys and girls, ages four to 13. While the majority of kids playing in NLYBS are from North Liberty, the league also has kids from Coralville, Solon, Tiffin and other area communities. In the 2009 summer season, NLYBS had 72 teams playing from May through June, with Junior and Senior softball and baseball teams involved in tournament play to complete the season.

The future’s so bright I gotta wear shades

NORTH LIBERTY– Cooking hot dogs, shooting off rockets and riding bicycles might sound like typical summer camp experiences. However, when you cook hot dogs in solar-powered potato chip cans, launch rockets fueled by hydrogen cells and ride bicycles connected to electricity generators, summer camp takes on a whole new meaning.
That’s the idea behind the many hands-on, fun learning stations offered at a one-day workshop conducted by Linn County Rural Electric Cooperative (REC) on July 15 at the North Liberty Recreation Center.
