Creating new daycare opportunities for families

NORTH LIBERTY– The success of one thriving North Liberty preschool and daycare program has given rise to another.

Creation Kids Director Michelle Eide said with younger siblings so readily filling up available slots at the Christian-based daycare, “There was no way to reach out to new families or the Coralville community.”

Shueyville Methodist hosting blood drive June 23

SHUEYVILLE– During the summer months, blood donations often drop to low levels. The American Red Cross encourages donors to rev up their engines and head out to a nearby blood drive or donation center.

Food For Thought

There are words we use in conversation and very informal writing (such as texting – which is a newly popular term I find greatly annoying). We don’t pay a lot of attention to the way these words are spelled– or even if they ARE words– because we’re concerned only with getting the message across. A few are real words but are generally used incorrectly.
