Walkin'

We left the Great Allegheny Passage on our second day, picked up the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal (C&O) as we rolled out of Cumberland, Md. (home to the city-wide happy hour every Friday night) and headed eventually to Washington, D.C.
We had the odd fortune of bicycling every day with rain predicted but never felt a drop until the seventh. On that day no rain was expected but we rode thru a steady drizzle, sat out one shower and rode through another. Nevertheless, every day of the first week was hot and very humid.

Food For Thought

My paternal grandmother, who was a teenage immigrant from Germany, never wasted food (or anything else I can think of). I remember watching with awe when she ate an apple. She didn’t peel it and discard the skin. She didn’t even twist off the stem and leave it behind. There was certainly no core to dispose of when she was finished. She ate everything– including the seeds.

OXFORD– In May of this year, Kent Pilcher and Ric Parades of the Iowa Construction Advocate Team (ICAT)/Estes Construction presented a multi-step matrix to the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) School Board of Directors. The plan was a suggested guideline to help the board determine future facility needs, and a roadmap toward a future bond referendum to pay for them.

West volleyball soars over Jefferson J-Hawks

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– If West High coach Kathy Bresnahan were to fill out a report card for her Women of Troy varsity volleyball team at this point in the season, it would likely contain the words “not working up to their potential.”
The team took care of visiting Cedar Rapids Jefferson Tuesday night in three games, in convincing fashion: 25-12, 25-11 and 25-11; but the coach was not happy with what she saw out on the floor.
