Balancing act

TIFFIN– “We don’t have all of the data we need to tell you concrete things yet,” said Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Superintendent Dr. Paula Vincent, speaking to the district’s school board at their meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 18.
The agenda items were to be staffing projections for 2009-2010 and presentation of the 2009-2010 proposed budget. Recent changes and a host of variables instead made the presentation a preliminary one, as Vincent sought guidance from the board in preparation for an upcoming budget work session.
The district must have its budget certified by Wednesday, April 15.

‘I do’ it all over again

CORALVILLE– In traditional Valentine’s style, candles flickered, soft music wafted and words of romance were whispered between couples in love.
It was no less romantic that this Valentine’s Day, these couples spoke their vows in a church sanctuary within earshot of about three dozen strangers.
The Coralville United Methodist Church hosted a vow renewal ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 14, one event in the church’s year-long commemoration of its own 50th anniversary.
Lisa Beal is a church member who organized the vow renewal ceremony.

Hawk Women Continue to Roll

IOWA CITY– The Hawkeyes have four games left in the regular season. They went into the Wisconsin game last week with 16 wins, 10 in the Big Ten conference.
It looks like they will need to win at least three games to get a shot at the Big Dance which would give them 19 wins for the season.
They picked up two with victories over the Badgers and Wolverines last week.
Nobody said it would be easy, and the 72-65 win over Wisconsin last Thursday at Carver showed that to be true.
Iowa didn’t match Wisconsin’s intensity in the first half and trailed 32-30.
