To observe the one-year anniversary, Harold and Astrid vanBeek and their son Laurens hosted an open house on May 5 this year, but for good measure, they threw in a few other celebrations as well, including the couple’s 20th wedding anniversary, Astrid’s 48th birthday, Harold’s 50th birthday and their first-place showing in the Best Rings category in KCRG-TV’s A List competition.

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.

He is Nathan Timmel, a professional comedian hoping to make it big.

An awesome father’s day

JOHNSTON– This Sunday, as families everywhere celebrate Father’s Day with the traditional gifts of power tools and new ties, one local family will see it just a little bit differently for the rest of their lives.
“Really, it sounds so cliché, but don’t take your kids for granted,” said North Liberty father of four Brad Zschiesche. “You don’t want to have any regrets.”
His wife Amy, who also had a most unconventional Mother’s Day, agreed.
“Just cherish each moment that you have with your kids and don’t take anything for granted, because life can change in an instant,” Amy said.
