June 20th

Splitsville

IOWA CITY — Charlie Stumpff’s West High Trojans baseball team slipped to 12-8 overall Friday evening after splitting a varsity double-header with Cedar Rapids Xavier at home.
West took the opener 10-1 but fell 5-2 in the nightcap.
In the opener, West started out with a three-run lead after the first inning. Ryan Rumpf drove in Aaron Peller with an RBI double that went all the way to the right field fence. Spence Bonner singled bringing home Ryan Siems before Jeremy Cronk walked to load up the bases. Luke Crimmins’ pop-up to right field was caught, but Rumpf was able to score.

NL officials to craft another agreement with CV?

NORTH LIBERTY– From the outside looking in, North Liberty appears to be no closer to resolving a disputed land issue with neighboring Coralville than it was four years ago.
But then, North Liberty thought it was pretty close back then.

No election in August

NORTH LIBERTY– There won’t be a special election in North Liberty August 2, but one is coming eventually.

Currently, all five council members are elected at-large and represent the entire city, regardless of their addresses.
