Iowa City Aerohawks radio-controlled airplane club puts on an aerial display

IOWA CITY– Mother Nature is not always the friend of clubs and organizations hosting outdoor events, as was evidenced Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Iowa City Aerohawks’ field next to the Iowa City Landfill. Winds of 20-25 mph from the east created a dangerous crosswind across the main runway, leading to about half of the scheduled events for the Aerohawks’ annual radio-controlled airplane show to be scrubbed. The members still managed to fill three hours with a variety of flying exhibitions.

Souped up support helps some stretch weekly food budgets

Pantry hosts fourth annual soup supper fundraiser

NORTH LIBERTY– In a community as rich in commerce and growth as North Liberty, it’s hard to remember there are people here who deal with hunger and food uncertainty every day.
It’s why the North Liberty Community Food Pantry just saw a record number of visits in one month; this October brought 837 visitors to the pantry. Its previous peak was 678 visits in a single month.
It’s also why participating in the organization’s fundraisers is more important than ever before.

The price of freedom

HCS students learn about sacrifice on Veterans Day

NORTH LIBERTY– Some people may see the phrase, “freedom is not free” as a cliché. For Michael Annis, the administrator of the Heritage Christian School in North Liberty, it is more of an understatement.
