It's hard to believe, but the fall sports season is just around the corner. Football, volleyball, cross country and swimming practices will get underway on Monday. However, despite its end at the high school level in Iowa this past weekend, baseball is center stage in the national sports landscape. And this year in Major League Baseball a spike in high-profile injuries has come to the forefront and been as much a part of the discourse as Derek Jeter's farewell season. OK, almost as much.

  • Sam's Secret: He knew it, we knew it, and now you do
    The first time I met Michael Sam was the second semester of my senior year in college. One of my pledge brothers was a student trainer on the University of Missouri football team and Sam proved to be one of the players he got to know better than the others. 
  • Iowa's Haluska talks Outback Bowl vs LSU
    The madness of college football bowl season has arrived, and Iowa is all set to clash with Louisiana State in the highly-anticipated Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla. at 12 p.m. Wednesday on ESPN. The New Year's Day bowl pits the 8-4 Hawkeyes against the 9-3 Tigers, who are ranked No. 14 in the country. 
  • Area baseball will see fitting end
    Saturday night will be flush with baseball action among area teams. And if you've been paying attention this summer, that's not a surprise. 
  • Collins' lead in to his story goes, "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay."

    I'm a 24-year old sports writer. I'm white. And I don't care. 
  • A walk around the block
    The end of June marked my second year as life and leisure editor/cub reporter for the Daily Times Herald. It was not long after joining the staff that columnist was also added to my title, and this little foray into the lives of the people of the Carroll area was added to the mix.

    For someone not a native to the Carroll area, there was really no better way to learn the ins and outs of your wonderful communities than to do it through the people. Not only the people who live on the block, so to speak, but those who come to visit and leave their mark here as well. 
  • In talking for only a few minutes with Carroll’s Lloyd Kline, it is immediately apparent that he has lived a life filled with excitement and accomplishment.

    He has won national, regional and local awards during his 63 years spent in the advertising industry in Omaha, Neb., and New York City. He has worked alongside many famous, and infamous, individuals, like C.W. McCall (born William Dale Fries Jr., in Audubon), who is probably best known for his Cleo Award-winning Old Home advertising campaign and he has been in the presence of such dignitaries as Winston Churchill. 
  • So how does an international recording artist who has performed on stages from Dublin to Broadway and had his work included on a compilation CD titled “Arias,” with artists Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman and Luciano Pavorotti end up scheduling a tour that goes from New York to China to Denison, Iowa? Well for Irish tenor, Michael Londra, his stomach played a part in that decision. 
  • You must build it because they have come
    There will never be an appearance made by Shoeless Joe Jackson or the Chicago Black Sox, but thanks to those iconic images, Iowa is well-known for its love of America’s sport and communities continue to see that reflected in their youth.

    In 2009, the Manning Little League program saw an increase of 22 players from the year before. This year, it saw another increase in participation and now has 141 boys and girls who play across 12 teams from T-ball to senior league. 
  • The funny thing about life is that it is usually when there is something that you don’t want to do, or don’t think is really going to amount to much of anything, that the most memorable moments of our lives occur.

    Such was the case with Kuemper Catholic High School calculus instructor Bill Kane after being notified he was going to be receiving an award. 
  • Do 'Qwitters' ever win?
    The debate rages on about the benefits and detriments of technology on our day-to-day lives.

    Few could disagree with the fact that advances in technology have made our school, work and personal lives easier, maybe a bit more costly, but a price we are obviously willing to pay for convenience. 
  • Welcome: It is all for your
'Dreams Made True'
    It is not every girl who can say that she has won a pageant and then traveled from Iowa to Texas to crown her successor in a grand ceremony, been filmed as part of an upcoming HBO documentary, spoken at elementary schools about her life  and acted as grand marshal in a Band Day parade. But even fewer young girls can say that their experiences have led them to spearhead their own pageant as a way to make others feel as confident and special as she has since the day she and her mother filled out the entry form for that pageant.
     
  • A European musical vacation
    Kuemper Catholic High School junior Melissa Odendahl has been given the opportunity of a lifetime — that of taking a 16-day tour through Europe. And while she is at it, she will also be acting as an ambassador for the Carroll area through her participation in the Iowa Ambassadors of Music (IAM) program. 
  • Suzi Barnes, her husband Jim, two cats, a dog, a cockatiel and the many friends in waiting who make reservations at their bed and breakfast share the 12,200 square feet of the historical Hartwig House in Denison. And now, no matter what the future may bring, their home will be a permanent part of the area’s history. 
  • This woman just keeps on giving, and giving, and giving
    For the Chinese, the year of the ox, 2009, may have rolled into the year of the tiger for 2010, but for Freda Dammann of Manning, that entire time could only be labeled as the year of the award. And she has earned every one of them.
