A small boost for a big program

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– AmeriCorps is a national organization in need of local assistance.
It was granted by the North Liberty City Council last Aug. 14.

Looking for some depth

IOWA CITY– The start of a new season is a challenge for any coach, and West High’s Brian Martz is no exception. The Trojan Cross Country team lost a number of seniors to graduation, and Martz said his squad needs “(some guys to) step up to the plate and rise to the occasion if we are going to challenge for a conference championship or a team berth at state this year.”

Johnson County Heritage Trust calls for public comment in accreditation process

JOHNSON COUNTY– Land trusts are organizations that protect natural areas and preserve land for public use, and Johnson County Heritage Trust has been carrying out that mission in Johnson County since 1978. With the support of generous donors and members, Johnson County Heritage Trust (JCHT) has helped set aside eight local natural areas for the enjoyment and education of the public, and holds conservation easements on eleven properties to help sustain the county’s prairies, woodlands, wetlands and sites of historic or scenic interest.

West volleyball starting from scratch (almost)

IOWA CITY– 2011 was a banner year for the West High Women of Troy on the volleyball court: 4A state tournament banner, Mississippi Valley Conference (MVC) tournament champs (fourth consecutive) and MVC regular season champs banner (third consecutive).
Add in their second consecutive Class 4A state championship, and 2011 was an emotional rollercoaster for the team as they spent the season mourning and honoring friend and teammate Caroline Found. Found was killed in August just weeks before the school year started.

CCA football 2012 looking forward, upward

TIFFIN– For the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers, there’s nowhere to go but up. After a 2011 season marred by suspensions and an 0-9 record, the Clippers hope their time in the dry dock of the postseason and on the practice field will yield better results.

Experience counts

TIFFIN– “CCA will be right in the fight,” said varsity volleyball coach Brian Bronzynski. His fourth year at the helm finds little change to the starting line-up.
Last year, the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers put up a 20-11 record with a tie for first place (with Marion) in the WaMaC West. The postseason came to an abrupt halt in the first round of regional play with a 1-3 loss on the road at Maquoketa, a loss still very much on Bronzynski’s mind. “We should’ve been able to go deeper into the regional tournament.”

NL Fun Run/Walk to be Sept. 16

Deadline for logo contest Aug. 31

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty is gearing up to celebrate its 100th birthday in November 2013, and the North Liberty Centennial Committee is calling for submissions for its Centennial Logo Contest.
Create a logo representing the city’s 100th birthday. Entry deadline is 12 p.m., Aug. 31. Entries, including a kids’ division, must be submitted via email to nlibcent.pr@gmail.com. Submissions must be in four colors or less. Be sure to include contact information.

Johnson County’s burn ban lifted

JOHNSON COUNTY– The State Fire Marshal’s office, at the request of the Johnson County Mutual Aid Association and Battalion Chief Dan Smith of Solon, has lifted the burn ban in Johnson County.
The ban, which was put into effect on July 12 due to drought conditions throughout the state, prohibited open burning without a permit or burning within a contained fire ring. Because of recent rains, firefighters now deem that conditions have improved, so open burning no longer poses a potential danger to life or property.
The ban was lifted at noon on Aug. 17.
