1932 to 2012<br> Linder tire

By B. Adam Burke
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– 1932 was a hard time to start a business, but in hard times there is often opportunity.
That was the year Henry Linder, with an Iowa City High School diploma and a few years of experience at Bernie Sparks Standard Tire, bought a bankrupt tire business for $2,800.
His shop was relocated to its current Iowa City location on Riverside Drive in 1973 and today his grandson, John J. Linder, runs Linder Tire Service, in business for 80 years.

Swisher sets its course for the future

SWISHER– “If Swisher doesn’t define itself, someone else will.”
But Kehla West, Swisher’s summer planning intern, said she believes the community is too valuable for that to happen.
West grew up on a farm in a similar-sized town in Indiana and will conduct a June community survey about Swisher’s future. In May, she started work as a part-time intern to draft a comprehensive plan for the town.

A tough couple of days for Clippers baseball

TIFFIN– Even the scoreboard couldn’t believe the numbers.
The old metal box flickered, flashed like disco lights and even shut itself off at times while the numbers upon it went almost unbelievably higher, rivaling a football score. After two hours, the carnage was over, and the Sailors of Waterloo Columbus had put up 27 runs to Clear Creek Amana’s two in the first half of a varsity baseball doubleheader Thursday.
