Food For Thought

My mother called it Solitary rather than Solitaire. She taught my older sister Dorothy to play the game, and Dorothy passed it on to me when I was old enough to learn. Dorothy made up some of the rules, and I strongly suspect they were strictly to keep me from winning very often. Why would I think such a thing about the big sister who taught me to read and count and write in cursive before I was old enough for kindergarten? She also taught me that green was called orange, and vice versa.

Coach hopes a year of success translates to track at West High

IOWA CITY– The West High Trojans track and field team hopes to capitalize on the success seen on the football field and basketball court.

The glass is half full

NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty Community Pantry has raised more than half the funds for its new pantry building fund. Out of the $250,000 needed to start construction on the new pantry, $140,000 has been raised. Currently the pantry has no running water for bathrooms, no private area to counsel families and no adequate space to store food. Free donations of food items have to be turned away at times due to the lack of storage space in the current facility. A new building is needed in order to serve those in the community who need a hand up during these difficult economic times.
