Next special program July 9

TIFFIN– You may be hearing some strange noises coming from Tiffin’s Springmier Community Library these days, as young readers explore scientific concepts as part of the 2014 Summer Reading Program, “Fizz! Boom! Read!”

Women of Troy again denied a championship

DES MOINES– They stood in a circle, arms around each other, on the sideline for one last time. The trophy they’d just been presented sat alone behind them, an uninvited tag-along. It wasn’t what they came to Des Moines and the Cownie Soccer Park for.

By Lori Lindner

TIFFIN– Schools don’t just exercise young minds.
Clear Creek Amana (CCA) middle school offers physical education classes every day for every student, a somewhat unique model these days, said health instructor Ben Robison.
But even with daily physical education classes, reinforcement is helpful in developing good habits at any age.
That’s why Robison created CCA Middle School’s Spring into Wellness Day.
